It's Duck and Cover, All Over Again
Curioser and curiouser!
This story is a collection of interesting news, plus some philosophy.
The world is very complex, and I am collecting my feelings about some of the things that are going on. The war in Ukraine is one of the topics that leaves me speechless because… see, geopolitics is complex and dirty as usual, but the people are like my brothers and sisters—both Ukrainians and Russians, so it’s just heartbreaking that this war is happening. It became heartbreaking years ago when the animosities started visibly building up with the help of geopolitical masters on every side—and now it’s dramatically heartbreaking. If I figure out the words, I will write a piece about it in addition to the one I sent a couple of weeks ago. I have not found the words yet. All I know is that it sucks when the kings and the emperors throw people under the bus, and it seems to be happening again and again, this time close to home. It just sucks. Bizarrely, many people have turned into experts on international relations overnight. I am not one! I have observations and opinions but I suspect, only time will tell who is playing whom. The only thing that’s clear is that there is suffering!
But of course, no matter what the exact relationship between various participating monsters is, the war is a perfect backdrop for the Great Reset!
At this time, it’s unclear whether the great resetters are just marching forward with their plans no matter what—or whether they are going to eat each other in the foreseeable future. I think it really depends on how many people decide to go with their timeless hearts as opposed to their trendy thoughts. That is my theory, anyway.
Geopolitics is mysterious: The World Economic Forum keeps disappearing (and sometimes subsequently restoring) their pages featuring all things Russian, including their pages on Cyberpolygon (organized by the Russian central bank and supported by WEF). So at the moment, it is not completely clear whether are we looking at the famous coordinated 5D chess between various super emperor ninjas, or whether the rivalry of the monsters is temporarily greater than their shared goals, and the sharks are mad at each other. Time will tell, I suspect it’s a combo of both!
Duck and Cover
Meanwhile the CDC is putting out new materials about how to act in a radiation emergency. To be honest, this whole business about hiding from a nuclear event has puzzled me for years. How in the hell is hiding under a desk can save one from a nuclear explosion? Anyway, I digress. At this point, everything is so surreal that it’s impossible to tell when the officials are serious, when they are saying dramatic things to justify their budget, and when they work with psychologists to make the population scared and timid. In any case, check out Duck’n’Cover 2.0:
And for good measure, here is the original one.
And this, of course.
Then there is this, penned by a Senior Editor at The Huffington Post.
After a bit of pondering, the author concludes:
“The cons seem to outweigh the pros in the event of global cooling caused by even a small nuclear war.”
Digital money for climate, etc.
In the mechanical world, we are looking at a joyless, restrained, mechanical future that includes manufactured austerity—for peasants only— in the name of the “climate emergency” (NYC subway ads about climate emergency have commenced), then likely we’ll hear something along the lines of, “Oops, we really didn’t expect it—but now, there is a war, and supply chain problems, and skyrocketing food prices, and biolabs overseas that don’t exist and at the same time exist depending on context, and OMG inflation that is not our fault and that no one could have predicted … so now we have to redesign the financial system from the ground up, meaning from the top down… and so we’ll give you equitable programmable digital money with a carbon spending limit because
the science the circumstance changed” etc.
So, it looks like the digital dollar is suddenly and unexpectedly coming like a bulldozer, just like the proverbial white grand piano hiding behind the bushes!
Biden’s Executive Order:
“My Administration places the highest urgency on research and development efforts into the potential design and deployment options of a United States CBDC.”
And for dramatics, here is an ad by a Saudi fund about “climate solutions.” I don’t know if they intentionally picked people with Hollywood villain facial expressions but the visuals are so ridiculous that they are almost great (if only they weren’t referring to a total hijack of everything natural)! Also, solar panels for miles look “sustainable,” don’t they?
In the meanwhile, another depressing topic is that it is getting harder and harder to hide is the harms from the Untouchable Medical Product. And if you want how I feel about it, I find it depressing. I don’t care who was right and who was wrong, and I want to be as wrong about it as possible because I just don’t want the people to suffer. But there seems to be a lot of suffering, and every day, there is something about young and healthy people suddenly collapsing, and new whistleblowers coming out, and new side effects getting “discovered” after being censored for many months… and I just find it very … I don’t know … disgusting. It feels so unnecessary, so cruel! I almost feel numb when I read story number one million and ten about “new” information coming out that was available for like a year and a half and heavily censored… I just pray for justice, whenever we can have it. I pray for justice.
It’s like being in an extended battle, and at some point, you become a little numb and realize that what’s going to happen, is going to happen, and all you can do is do all you can do and have faith, and build a life for yourself that is centered around love and truth. And it is very humbling, and this is probably what people have been doing all along, for millions of years: doing what they can do and leaving the rest to the wisdom of the universe. I know that the universe is on the side of love. I know it because the whole point is love, and it’s not an empty phrase, it really is this way. And we may not know how exactly our victory will come, but it will come. And I hope that the sacrifices made by the ones who were damaged, often unintentionally, transform into courage and truth. I hope for the truth.
On the funny side of things, here’s what happens when the definitions of “hate speech” become fluid. :)
And here is our Energy Secretary performing in a music video. I am just leaving it here, since the topic is super loaded, and talking about it properly would require a separate article. To me this funny fact says primarily that we are so deep into the woods of the spectacle that we will need a lot of luck to get in touch with reality—which is why I think we are having all those issues with the Great Reset etc. Through the ridiculousness of it, it might get a lot of people to fall back in love with reality, and I pray that it happens in the kindest manner. The end.
PS. Apropos of nothing at all, here is a children’s song that was iconic when I was a kid. It is about, well, also nothing, just vague ideas of happy childhood and one day growing up and becoming adults, all very romantic for no particular reason. Oh and in the film, this boy is a robot trying to understand what it means to be human. His name is El, from Electronic. So nothing is new under the sun!
