The Reset

COVER 5page-001

If you have any wealth then this is an important book. It presents the thesis that The Age of Capital has ended. It’s over and finished, the System known as Capitalism is presently defunct. This thesis was reviewed by my network of Capitalists and then sent to a top level network in January, 2017. In April their reply was that the thesis is true. The reader is invited to make up his own mind. This has profound implications for all accumulated wealth on the planet.

All content is Systematized by Cathal. All chapters were authored by numerous subject experts. For example, content pertaining to Nuclear destruction of Russia is authored by those with working knowledge of such. The reader should understand content is not theoretical, actual power factions are presently and actively pursuing this proven solution, as they believe such a war is winnable. That also highlights the level of desperation at the Top.

You see, the alternative is The Reset which is just as dangerous. How to change the System Framework within which the economy operates, alongside operational and legal changes to ownership, without System and social disintegration? Think of all the people you know, and how they’ll react. The Reset is dangerous and that’s why ‘the can’ has been kicked for ten years.

The situation is grave. I do not exaggerate when I say your very survival depends on understanding the contents of this book. If you have any wealth, you are about to compete head to head with the most knowledgeable, most powerful and most evil beings on the planet. In an event called The Reset.

Reader, I wish you the very best of luck, and please begin with volume 1.

  1. thank you. I just got your first 2 books today. It is mind-blowing. I at least know some of what I can do now and am looking forward to book 3 for more insight. Rickards has been mentioning what you said in book 2. it is very sobering. hopefully, this summer will be enough time. July-October seems to be the time period to really see how the ball gets rolling. I’m guessing the roller coaster starts getting faster then and faster closer to 2018. again, thank you. I’ll try to use this to help myself and my friends.


    1. The mean people are angry and they want blood. So the most important factor is location and not just in the immediate sense; contemplate the political structure which shall form post-Reset. Which is analysed in Volume 1.


      1. It’s amazing to see the fighting and attacking that don’t really lead to a joint consensus that would help everyone. Why should people have a living wage? Why should that even be a question? The more division, the less unity. And it’s working. Almost finished with Vol 2. Going to continue with Vol 1. Already ordered Vol 3. Left a review for Vol 2.


      2. So you blame Capitalism for everything that the Elites at the top and all the greedy people out there have done. Do you realise that no matter what economic system is tried the greed always gets the best of us. You are a communist at heart but the kind that thinks “it can work in its truest form with the right people”. Im sorry but you are wrong and Capitalism is actually the greatest form of economic structure for any nation state. Just look at what is has done for the rest of the world. I didnt see any other forms of economic structure bring food and water to Africa or advance technologically so fast in the past 60 years that we are now literally doubling knowledge and advancements every couple years. The “people” who run our systems and nations will always be greedy but one thing is for sure. In Capitalism atleast everyone has a chance to get rich.

          1. The ROTchilds invested in creation of Zionism and communism both. Why would a Jewish capitalist banker do that? For the creation of Israel and the goal of controlling the world)? Talmudic Zionism is the most evil ideology on earth


            1. You people are saying “capitalism” when you mean “ usury “. You are not going to be able to communicate on these matters until you start using concise language.

              Usury is an “evil work”. Eccl. 8:11

        1. Equal opportunity not equal outcome. Free market capitalism is dead it’s been crony capitalism for forty years and thank corrupt government Zionists and their world controlling ideology.


          1. The blueprint of the Reset has now been mapped out.
            I’ll be keeping that analysis private.
            Essentially though, the World War option is going to be taken; but not as imagined by the peasants.
            The assault against the species is gathering pace.

            Edit: Ok, I decided to add the war game for the BIS in edition 6. It’s quite brilliant and some readers wanted The Reset to be longer, so I gave in. The Bankers who checked it said don’t make it public but … fuck it. May as well put it out there. Enjoy.


              1. I’ve stated explicitly and publicly that I don’t like assholes and mean people. It upsets me that it’s mostly assholes who read my series. And in spite of this, I still receive mail everyday that goes like this:

                “I’m an asshole, so what? At least I’m honest. Now The Reset was brief and I know you’re holding back the real dope. I’m not letting these fuckers kill me. So since I’m honest, can I get it?”

                And I’m like…

                “Dear Rothschild,

                Please kill all life on Earth.

                Yours Truly,



                1. Makes sense 🙂 I was just asking if it was something in addition to the Reset timing. I’ve read (and submitted a review) book 1 in the series, just got book 2&3 in the mail yesterday. After “The Reset, I was going to ask for the timeline and some additional Q’s.

                  Thanks for your work Putrid!


              2. Ah, My beloved students.

                To those students in Pakistan defence intelligence, be good boys, and please remember my golden rule:

    2. The best sex I ever had made my whole body ache the next day, and at the same time, wanting to do it all over again. “The Bullshit Machine” is just like that. It will make your brain hurt in truly delicious ways and leave you wanting more. If you are reading this review, somewhere along the way you must have chosen to swallow the “red pill”, searching for a way to clearly understand the Matrix that we find ourselves in. We both know that something is not right with the world around us and it is not just you and I who feel this way. Look around and you will see your friends, neighbors and complete strangers exhibiting signs of stress and anxiety unseen just a couple of years ago. For some of us on a conscious level and for the others on a subconscious level, we know the system is not working and great changes are on the very near horizon. The authorities assure us with “bullshit”, that everything is just fine, but then again, isn’t that what the crew of the Titanic told the passengers after the ship had rammed the iceberg and already began to take on water? The passengers in first class had their positions in the life boat secured while those in steerage ( you and I) were left to fend for themselves. This is the first in a series of three ingenious books that will help you to understand that the boat is going down and there is nothing you can do about it. The next two books lead you to the lifeboats and help you to find one that has room for you and your family. Time is very short and water is pouring over the bulkheads. I strongly suggest that unless you like the idea of seeing how long you can stay afloat in ice cold water that y purchase this book and its two companions. Then again you could just swallow the blue pill and enjoy a nice delicious steak. My deepest thanks to Cathal for making the effort to write these books as well as to the “Old Farts” who contributed to the endeavor. Pray for peace and prepare for war.

      Love, Secret.


      1. Exalt the new god =’TELEVISION. If people just turned it off they would quadruple productivity and be far more happier as the black lives matter, LGBT , bankers, racism can’t hurt anyone. The Zionist agenda requires 115volts to be successful


    3. It’s not ‘luck’ we need, it’s wisdom. Because we’re fighting, as you say ‘evil’ we will not manage this on our own. We need the knowledge and wisdom of Almighty God.


  2. I doubt it will be possible to manage a Reset. If “they” will be able to implement a new system, I doubt it wll be worth living in it, because of the victory of the “mean” people and the damage to the invironment.
    Economies of scale disable a smaller solution. Problably: BAU or nothing. But I don´t know like anybody!

    I am reading Volume 1 and 2 at the moment and value them outstanding. Later I will “try” the Reset”.

    I hope we have some more years with BAU. But fuses are burning at every corner.

    Putrid, what do you think about the timing?

    As long as BAU continues this is my magic dozen:

    1. be friendly and in good spirits
    2. Self-criticize, be peaceful but fortified
    3. think small, live small, slowdown, meditate
    4. buy local, save resources,
    5. study everything in depth
    6. grow own food
    7. learn some skilled manual work
    8. cooperate with like-minded people, barter and help each other
    9. reject ideology – hang on to your intuition, avoid pied pipers
    10. avoid mass consumption and stimulus satiation
    11. fight the powers that be – but in an indirect aikido way
    12. help others to awaken from the cultural trance

    1. Lord Rothschild,

      If you’re gonna kill A LOT OF PEOPLE, would you please kill the mean people first. Elmar and I would appreciate a break from all the mean assholes before we die.

      As for timing Elmar, you may write me, I like nice people. All I do is drink wine and hang out with nice people these days.

      Love you Lord (I’ll give you half my gold if you kill the mean people first) Rothschild



  3. (Finished The Reset) I’m simply lost for words. It truly is too much for ordinary people to stomach.

    The peasants can’t accept it and will continue to be mean.. and there are a lot of mean peasants who think they are elites, and are due for a very rude awakening.

    Thank you… I also thank myself for having the guts to stomach all the info – most people will have the ‘rejection syndrome’ towards info like this.


    1. Hello Paul,

      Yeah, it’s amazing. Truly amazing when you appreciate the bigger picture. Everyone likes to blame the Families or Bankers, or Zionism or Communism, but where we’re headed is a System result. No one is to blame.


      1. (Here’s my review)

        I initially came upon Cathal’s “Putrid” comments on Zerohedge and knew that he presented information that rang true. Began my journey into the research on our monetary system some 30 years ago and I actually thought that The Reset would occur back in ’98….then again in ’08…..but watched closely as the Masters of the Universe snatched it back from the jaws of death.

        Many of us have known, for some time now, that something is gravely wrong with our nation and our monetary system, and furthermore, felt that this has occurred by design. But by whose design? And why?

        Having now completed all 3 volumes, several things I must say. I am not only impressed with his utilization of “Learned Sources” in order to help put the pieces together for so many of us who knew of the deep collusions behind the System but weren’t able to finally complete the puzzle by “putting it all together”. I am quite grateful to him for having done so.

        You will find these books frightening, enlightening, infuriating, and at last, well, at least somewhat comforting to be able to now know the who, what, how, and why.

        Pay attention to the words in these books. Ignore them at your and your family’s peril.


      2. Going into the end alone with no hope of making the world a better place? Wow they already won with you. Divided not willing to work together. No more family = population control. They already won why are you even going to try?


  4. Just about everything I’m seeing is a result of net energy decline imo. Right now it’s burning around the peripheral of society. At some point it’ll start eating its way into critical infrastructure whether through rot or war. As resources get tighter people will become more violent. So my prediction will be war and not rot bc politicians love to point their finger at someone else. Based what I’m seeing in the oil industry the early 2020’s should be quite interesting in a really bad way.


  5. There is nothing more ugly than a mean person who has been empowered by wealth.

    It’s my birthday so I am indulging myself with a day without Bull$hat.

    Some people are mean but they don’t know why. I enjoy talking them around to seeing that and then finding out what it is they really want, which they think they can get by being mean, but they can’t. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised and they come round. Occasionally it comes to fisticuffs but I have grown out of that.

    We all need a future that we can project ourselves into. Most want to conjure up a dreamy future with no limitations. A few can handle a realistic future scenario to project themselves into. Truth is that the future is unknown and that is the definition of fear. If we knew, or at least have as educated an idea of what the future might bring, which is what your trilogy is attempting to do, that goes a long way in removing the unknown and thus the fear.

    Truth is we can never really know enough so to a certain degree it is probably a good idea to become familiar with, become somewhat comfortable with, FEAR! Its how we respond to fear that will matter. For me as for many others fear drives me to delve into deep research as understanding is the only thing that alleviates fear but what if (when) the internet goes out? Thats when the power of the assholes takes over AHhhhhhhhh!


  6. Putrid,

    First, thank you for the link to volume 3. The past few weeks have been hectic with hardly a moment to spare for matters of personal interest. Now that I have a bit of time I intend to order the book and get started as soon as it arrives. I have begun to compose some thoughts on the previous volumes but to be honest I have been waiting to get to the third act and denouement in order to have a gestalt perspective on the project. I feel like any interpretation or analysis offered on my part would be incomplete without it.

    That said, your descriptions, by email and the Amazon summary, have further piqued my interest, and I feel impelled to type out some thoughts regarding the ills currently plaguing humanity while I have the time. I don’t know if you will find this useful at all, but following the Divine impulse is relevant to what I have to say, which is this:

    All of humanity’s woes can be accounted for by two conditions; fear and self-interest. In that regard, we are no different than any other animal on the planet, and our inevitable extinction is simply the logical outcome of acting in accordance with our nature. Except we are different. We, uniquely among the global fauna, are self-aware, which carries with it the burden of justification. How do we justify our existence? In other words, why are we here? What purpose do we serve? What good are we? What use? Nothing on this planet or elsewhere has materially benefited from human existence since at least the rise of civilization, except humans themselves. The purpose of our existence, it seems, is merely to perpetuate our existence at any cost. Our ingenuity has allowed this to happen on an unprecedented scale, which makes us not only animals, but a particular kind of animal: a parasite. We are sentient parasites, and no one – or nearly so – is immune to this. You suggested (somewhere) that the noble families should come forward with the Truth about our fate and misfortune. My question is, why haven’t they? Is it a sociopathic bent that prevents them from caring? Maybe. More likely it is the threat of the retaliation, wholly justified, from those that have long suffered under their mendacity, greed, and opportunism. So it is fear, for their wellbeing, the wellbeing of their families, their fortunes, etc. Fear. Self-interest. There is nothing noble about the elite. They are simply a higher caste of parasite.

    But the problem is not the dominant class, nor is it the complacent herd, nor money, nor power, nor technology nor machine intelligence that threatens to plunge us into obsolescence. These are not problems, they are not even symptoms of a problem because there is no problem. These are simply the inevitable outcome of humanity being what it is, parasitic. And we will continue to act according to our nature until we kill the host that sustains us and annihilate ourselves, ending the cycle, or we reduce ourselves to a few roving bands and the cycle begins again. Either way, there is no escaping the cycle, no escaping our nature, our fate… unless… unless…

    Unless someone can articulate a need for humanity, a purpose, an essential humanbeingness, that rises above our own debased, parasitic nature. A reason for the ongoing existence of humanity that doesn’t circle back on human existence, merely. Unless someone can answer those questions above that have daunted us since the dawn of conscious awareness. It would mean aligning ourselves with a more exalted impulse, in opposition to our base natures. For an organism to act in contradiction to its own self-interest by approaching – not fleeing from – fear, or forgoing personal need and desire, requires something extraordinary; a purpose beyond itself and its kind. Service to a greater master. We could call this thing God or pleroma or nous or cosmos or whatever, but naming a thing brings us no closer to actualizing it. Even describing it, if such a thing could be done, is insufficient. Words are cheap. It must be lived, embodied, executed. Otherwise it is meaningless. Up until nearly this moment our attempts to articulate this thing have been blessed with the luxury of time, but time (I hear) is running out. And far from getting closer to an answer we are moving further and further away, to the point now where the average human is too diminished, too fearful, to even pose the question to themselves, knowing instinctively it will collapse their lives into chaos and crisis. And yet our ability, or failure, to come up with some satisfactory answer, and act on it, is nothing less than the difference between extinction and evolution.

    And so, when I hear an argument for preserving humans on a personal, familial, tribal, cultural or species level, my question is, why? Why preserve the existence of a thing that has no purpose beyond its own existence? Unless we can answer that question we have no choice (literally, no other option) than to let human nature run its course. People will continue to try to save their lives but it will not alter their fate.

      1. At one time, the “gods” did benefit from humans existence. Now the controllers are simply attempting to emulate aspects of a previous model.


      2. Absolutely right! We were made to be loved. Ever seen a parent defend a naughty child? That’s how we’re defended.


    1. David – A typical blame the human species rant. You point out humans bad behavior then offer zero thoughts on what elicits said behavior other than to say thats just how they are, its in there nature.

      Dogs nature is to chase down something reasonable in size, tear it apart and eat it. The vast majority of them don’t, why is that do you suppose? Should we proclaim the species bad and violent and do away with them?

      We treat humans worse than dogs. We have structured so called civilization in such a way as to elicit the worst possible behavior then we point out that behavior and say people are just bad, let them die off.

      We need to restructure ourselves based on what we know will elicit the best behavior and yes we have examples of this through out history. Then along comes the assholes who fuck it all up for their own benefit.
      Kill the assholes!


      1. Jef,

        We’ll see what David had to say after The Reset. It’s not commonly known that prior to Capitalism, human society and economy, was sustainable. It’s just that a small fraction of the population, who are greedy bastards, took power.

        They created a System that’s not sustainable and is going to kill every single one of us.

        And especially since Globalization of the Monetary and Real Economy systems in the 70s, there’s no safe way to exit the System Framework of Capitalism.

        The spotlight is on Lord Rothschild right now. It’s your time to shine bro. All eyes are on You.


        1. “It’s not commonly known that prior to Capitalism, human society and economy, was sustainable.”

          Karl Polanyi’s book “The Great Transformation” (1944) seemed to say just that…that farming village societies did not even have famine.


      2. Yup, blaming human nature is exactly what TPTB want us to do. It’s one of the foundational tricks and if you don’t understand that then you haven’t got very far. Human nature is naturally kind, loving and giving but we are kept in a state of permanent need because the abundance of this planet has been stolen by a tiny tranche of people who only surrender any of it so that they can keep us in a state of perpetual servitude.


        1. Christian Thomas,

          No person is “kept” in any state. All states of being are self-determined. Nor does any human possesses authority over another beyond that which is freely given over by the subjugated. Power is never seized, but agency is surrendered. Human sovereignty is innate, but it must be practiced, effectuated, and embodied in order to be made manifest. It is fear of mortality, our own and others, that allows conditions of authority and subservience to exist. Fear of pain. Fear of suffering. No one who has not faced, and conquered, their most intimate fear, which constitutes the death of self, is free. And that why we are easily led. Because very few have. That is the “foundational trick” that leads to suffering. It is your misapprehension of this fact that ranks you among the baffled herd. This same fact that has doomed all prior civilizations to collapse, as it dooms our own. As it will doom the next and the next. Three times and counting. The end is just the beginning again.


      3. Hey Jef,

        Seems like I touched a nerve. To answer your question re. dogs: because once or twice a day some benevolent human places a bowl of processed kibble under their noses and they soon forget why it was they needed to tear apart smaller animals in the first place. If you want to understand your dog’s nature, stop feeding it, and see how long it takes for it to eat the cat. If this dynamic sounds familiar, it’s because it also aptly describes the human social condition as presently arranged. My point is not that humans – more specifically, human behavior – is “bad.” My point is that humans are, first and foremost, animals, and we largely behave according to our nature despite having the capacity, unique among all animals, of higher level executive functioning. We choose the bowl of kibble even knowing it’s composed of bits and pieces of our fellow man, because doing so is easier than the alternative. Take Putrid, for instance. By all accounts a good man who has taken it upon himself the task of informing others so that they may (possibly) avoid or at least survive a horrific calamity. Who, despite this fact, has materially benefited, however indirectly, from the suffering and ignorance of his fellow man, because it aided his existence. Because it made his life easier. Should we blame him for that? Should we hold him to account? Should we kill *that* asshole, when you and I both know we would have done the exact. same. thing. If given the chance.

        So we can lament the debasement of human society all the live long day. We direct our ire at the assholes who have made our lives less rosey. Why can decry the system all we want, but we do so at our peril and to our own debasement, because the system is you. The system is me. The system is Putrid. The system is the assholes who dictate your fate in the broad stroke sense because they were lucky or skilled enough to do what humans always do, only to greater effect, and to the benefit of their own self interest. You are right, though. “We” need to do something about this. Maybe “we” can start by acknowledging “our” own culpability in the situation “we” created with “our” own choices and complicity.



    2. Ummm no. The problem is 100% religious controlling ideology. World controlling Whores whom think they’re dads favorite. The Jews and Muslims and their evil middle eastern religion is the problem. Zionism is the worlds most dangerous element today and they’re using Islam to do it.


    3. Talk about no light the end of the tunnel. Are you Jewish? Debbie downer culture is the most important thing we have on earth without we are sheep and cattle.


    4. Wow a path towards meaning that that would justify our existence. Fear is the driving factor towards our ruin and fear comes from the possibility of rejection. The meek and humble do not judge and that is why they will inherit the earth. They won’t want to exclude anyone because they see themselves in the least among us


    5. 1st self control is required to be learnt by all, the cabal know and have studied the people very well indeed. Addictive natures that is the very 1st part before anything else. Human weakness unfortunately. All the rest then follows like clockwork


  7. The sheep MAY go insane?

    Consider the trends since WW2 as policy.

    1. Massive population growth

    2. Increase in energy usage neccessary to have a “normal” 1st world lifestyle.

    3. Increasingly effective automation increasingly obviating the need for workers.

    4. Constricting, ever-decreasing spaces, metaphorical or actual, free of pollution or polluted methods of maintaining business as usual (roundup free food, places to live not affected by hidden industrial or other waste or accidents etc)

    5. Massive dumbing down of the general population – not only making them ignorant but also irrational, so that if they had all the objectively correct information they cannot process it meaningfully.

    The above 5 points create a particular type of society. Imagine a pyramid that, instead of forming an equilateral triangle, tapers from bottom to top, ending in a narrow spire at the top. Everything in the above 5 points creates a civilization in which.

    1. Everyone, literally everyone is under tremendous pressure to desperately try to get to the next rung up or at least not fall back a rung.

    2. Playing by the rules – not actual laws, I mean just the real factors involved – to the exclusion of all else is the key to rising up or falling down through the tapered pyramid.

    Naturally, the spire at the top will eventually contain only those best at the internal game and are through a combination of nature and nurture, totally fucked in the head.

    The system of forced scarcity and dependence both creates and distills a certain kind of humanity, desperate, ignorant, without scruples, principles, dignity, reason. One that is so abjectly sycophantic that the elites can put the lifestyle of Caligula to shame.

    It is the civilizational equivalent of watching a single human say “muhahaha. Now I shall achieve Full Spectrum Dominance” right before they stab themselves in the eye with an icepick, collapse, and die.

    Yes, the subroutines we would label “elite” may have a short time to gloat, having disabled all parts of the organism that would limit them with their Home Lobotomy.

    This is probably why a lot of us are theorizing a “big reveal” where there is a huge dramatic twist and the 5 points above turn out to be leading up to either a supergenious goal or total collapse.

    Sorry, but Occam’s Razor says just draw a trendline and follow it forward in time – and assume TPTB are doing likewise. Jack London’s Iron Heel stamping on a human face forever.

    Harden all the vital points in your civilization, ratchet up your internal security, ratchet up rationing, make the rungs increasingly defined and obvious so people concentrate on trying to survive within the pyramid. Block all the exits while expanding the pyramid to encompass everything.

    Maybe what we are watching is not a crisis but a goal. Just because it is insane doesn’t mean it can’t be kept stable yet increasingly shitty for a long time.

    We’ll probably get there along a sort of “punctuated equilibrium” timeline, where a series of crises and emergencies both acheive and excuse the approach to this “ideal” society.

    Personally I scratch my head and wonder is true stability possible. Yes, Ubiquitous Security can and will prevent any human agency from altering our civilizational course. I would say at this stage, that’s already true. I strongly recommend anyone considering active “resistance” ala French Revolution to NOT consider it.

    But as Radical Marijuana might put it over on Zerohedge, all they’re really doing is preventing anyone from responding rationally to reality by a combination of lies, threats, and force. It is hard to imagine that this can’t have consequences.

    I am just a peasant at the bottom of the galley rowing an oar, so I don’t know shit of course. I don’t assume any of the above is a correct outlook. Just a thought experiment with the premise what if current trends and forces are there on purpose.


      1. The western roman empire shows a pretty good example from nature – almost certainly not purposely directed. The evacuation of Dacia. The abandonment of Britain. The loss of Noricum.

        Rome collapsed over a very long time period and that collapse was punctuated in time and space – local collapse, temporary partial collapse, etc.

        The key is going to be to consciously replicate the example for advantage instead of letting things slide. Firewalling off sections of our civilization and then engaging in planned demand destruction is going to be the way to go.

        Keep as many as possible accepting the new lowered living standard and working for the system. If that’s happening, I think collapses will be consistent, contained (happening in regional, demographic, or other chunks), and be of two types – total abandonment/destruction or (sometimes barely) acceptable drop in living standards.

        Obviously if you look around and see firewalls going up around you, you’re in a bad neighborhood.

        When scarcity is a feature, not a bug, if hubbert’s curve starts to impede, stability consists in pushing however many it requires outside the firewall where they lay little to no claim to resources. You want to die out there, want to live in a mud hut dying occasionally of cholera, you figure that out. But if that’s what’s happening, it’s just a matter of dialing in the right amout of scarcity for the right people.

        Long ago, someone asked me what I’d do if I were one of those stuck on the Raft of the Medusa. I said I’d jump off and swim away, preferably with a chunk of raft for floatation. At least I’d die swimming for shore and be neither a victim nor a monster.


        1. Vengeance is the first nature of justice.

          Revenge is a right because all rights exist by virtue of force.
          Where no force exists to assert a right or protect it, the right in question doesn’t exist.

          Nature says, harm, and be harmed, wheresoever it is possible and profitable to retaliate.
          He who doesn’t retaliate isn’t a player in the game–they are prey.


    1. Kindle? I’m Not bothered. There’s not much time left. I’m just enjoying my End of World Party.

      Tell the guys on the Hedge, a bunch of them got into the concluding volume. The very very smartest.


      1. LOL depending on JUST how long we have left, the difference between download and waiting for UPS may be the difference between being doomed and being doomed plus a smidgeon of understanding our doom.

        C’mon man. You go to all the trouble of creating the book and putting it up on Amazon, writing your blog and so on… click the friggin button that allows a download fer chrissake. You expect me to lug YOUR books plus all of Will Durant and Toynbee’s work AND 8,000 rounds of 45 acp through the post-apocolyptic landscape listening to Root Down on repeat? There’s kindles for a reason eh.

        1. Here’s what I just know is going to happen. There I’ll be, trudging through the postapocalyptic wasteland, the bushels of books on my back going way above my head like some goddamn Chinese peasant hauling hay, my face in a rictus of pain because my eyes are horribly burning from the ubiquitous post-apocalyptic duststorm – because I remembered Alexander to Actium and forgot fucking goggles – my lips mostly emitting painful grunts and moans to the Beastie Boys but occasionally matching a few syllables of the lyrics.

          I’l find temporary safety with one of those new pedophilic cannibal christian biker gangs that have been popping up everywhere lately. They’ll nod in silent, attentive sympathy as I tell my tale of woe.

          Their eyes will glisten with heartfelt empathy as I explain that I wouldn’t have had a horribly excruciating ruptured disc had it not been for an author names Cathal who insisted on physical publishing only.

          They’ll say to me “Dude, that’s messed up.” Right before they chop my leg off with a machete and start eating. Gosh darn it!

          I won’t shake my fist at you because by this time my hands will be tied behind my back – oh, or eaten – and I won’t curse your name because they will have already gagged me but…. actually it doesn’t appear to be a but there, that’s just some things I won’t be doing.

          If I can work the gag off, I want to have some pithy, defiant thing to yell out. I was thinking maybe “Gold, Bitchez!” Or for the well-informed, maybe “Brooksley Born, Bitchez!!!” That’d be a better-shared insider joke but you don’t want your head chopped off only partway through your quip, so brevity is important. Geez. This post is longer than I thought it would be.


          1. Bob,

            If you’re lucky you’ll bump into my pedophilic cannibal christian biker gang…

            And if you have a copy of my book I won’t gag you. I’ll want to know your thoughts on the post Reset economy. As I gnaw on you femur bone. “Any thoughts on the Repitilian brained fucks that caused The Reset Bob?” I’ll mutter. So no fear… spit out the longer “Brooksley Born, Bitchez!!!”


  8. joe-bob henry-bob – Don’t forget that toilet paper will be hard to come by so maybe you want to carry around a few extra printed versions. No offense Cathal.

    My post reset plan is to open a Babyback Ribs Joint, maybe franchise.


    1. I hear you can get a bad infection on the crack of your ass if you wipe with Dollar bills. That’s the rumor anyway. Puss and everything.

      I’d rather wipe my ass with a rock than with a dollar note.


  9. This is a private message.

    I read your comments in Gail Tverberg’s blog. Some people are sarcastic but that’s because they are in denial.

    In my opinion, Iceland is not a food producing nation so it is not a great place to run. Growing food in Iceland is next to impossible without fertilizer imports, and it has no infrastructure whatsoever to build factories for that. When food gets scarce the Icelanders will show their Viking self.

    Anne Frank’s father thought it was wise to run but he stopped at Holland, and we know what happened to his family. It is better to go to an island where food could be grown. I think that Ireland itself is not a bad choice, although the offshore islands of Ireland, where not too many tourists visit and are not rich enough for invaders to covet, would be better. Complete with a boat to run to the sea if things get too hot.


  10. Sarcastic. And very funny. Fast Eddy is a comic genius.

    My friends and I will study this issue now. I’ll keep you abreast of developments.
    Of course, and as you know, I take a Network approach to solving these hard problems.

  11. Greetings from Houston, Texas. I read somewhere (your book?) that history is a pendulum that swings back and forth and that when the pendulum decides to reverse directions there is little that can be done but to stand aside and enjoy the movement. I have frequently wondered what drives the pendulum and after reading The Reset I think maybe it is the mass of sociopathy within the civilization at the relative point of time in the arc of the pendulum. Sociopaths seem to be a normal variant within the framework of human evolution and arguments can be made that they serve a purpose in the advancement of a civilization. I think the “problems” occur when the sociopaths have risen to the top of the pyramid and pushed all of the “normies” out of power backfilling the vacancies with like minded defectives. Like a bell siphon, the system is able to handle the load of psychopathy until a certain point and then the system totally empties out and the slowly begins to refill again. Any future solution to forming a new “system” after the reset will need to include a way of identifying sociopaths and then placing them on a very strong and measured length of chain. Sociopathy is like fire. Useful to society when contained but highly destructive when out of control, to the point that the flames even extinguish themselves once everything around them has been consumed, parasite killing host and then itself. Many thanks for your insights as to our past, present and future. Your books make my brain hurt in a very good way. Wishing you and your family the best, always. S.W.


    1. Hi Secret Weapon,

      My take on the Pendulum is that it is driven by addiction, encouraged and then administered by, the sociopaths. The examples are limitless; cigarettes, alcohol, sex, porn, bullshit, what have you.

      I’ve known this for some time and it has influenced my lifestyle profoundly. I know addiction is a necessary precursor to pleasure: once you satisfy the addiction you experience pleasure—so I only develop those addictions which I can control, and treat, easily.

      With respect to controlling sociopathy in the population, that is hard.

      First, the masses would have to admit that those they currently worship, or have worshiped, are sociopaths. They move around and make allies easily, detach then move to better hunting grounds. So are not spotted till it’s too late, since they’re surrounded by likeness.

      Then, there’s the problem of Religion. It’s an evolved power structure. How do you reform something that’s natural?

      NO, there’s no controlling the pendulum. Learn from the ancient Families my friend. Don’t get attached to a landscape or race. When you see around you a nation infested and about to collapse, you pack up your titles and wealth, and leave for more moral company.

      I can promise you, you can move to Ireland anytime. Or we’ll meet some other place. And those places are being prepared. My life has been uninterrupted pleasure so far and will remain so. But every line must eventually fall and that is life. Yes, we both know there’s now extinction risk, so a little extra effort and risk is required by everyone. Hopefully some fall and not all.

      If the corporations go down, we all die.



  12. As promised, I have completed a review on Amazon. It should post shortly. I wrote It from the heart (and a little bit from my head). Hope the review helps others. Warmest Regards, S.W.


  13. So I bought all 3. I am a thorough conspiracist ( sp). If there is some earth ending event coming soon does do anything matter other than live these last days with peace and make amends with people you wrong and forgive those who wronged you. I have prepped for years. Not much more I can do. Can sell everything and move like this author. I have kids and I will fight til the end for them if it surely is the end. Be right with God or who ever your maker is. This world has always and will always been under control of EVIL. But some people say Evil is relative. Depends on perspective. Well, we all know what is right and wrong. You cant change the world. But you can change yourself and affect the people around you. Good luck all. Ill see you on the other side if we dont make. But like hell will I allow evil to take me down without a fight. I will not succumb like the German Jews or the Egyptian Jews to be slaughter. If you die , at least die with dignity. Death is only step to a different world. I just hope there is now hell. Don’t like burning for eternity for a life that lasted for 44 years. The whole concept of hell makes no sense for us humans who life span on earth is max 80 years but spirit is a plus 10000000000000 trillions years.


    1. just be glad you know. it helps. very peaceful now. but we are in uncharted territory still. imagine all of the people around you panicking. my best friend may be coming to visit. he knows some Italian and is learning it for personal reasons. he overheard some people visiting from Italy saying they are doing it while they have the chance. people are aware, but do not want to believe it. my best friend is the one who encouraged me to make my home secure in case crap hits the fan so we can have food and water and one more safe spot. yet he says this could go on another 10 years. it could, but we have putrid to let us know it won’t go on like this much longer. it’s a relief to not be crazy, but still stressful to have others say something is coming but think it will still be a ways off. yes, make a network and make peace. it will be much easier then on you and you may just have another teammate for the coming reset.


  14. What did the Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Medea Persian, Grecian, and Roman Empires all have in common? They all suffered the same fate this final global empire will in the 2020’s with one huge caveat.

    Yes the final phase of its demise will most likely begin this fall with said RESET but TPTB have been planning this “RESET” for years and revealed so much in “The Economist” in 1988 for the year 2018. This plan required centralization so four primary 10 year phase ins were planned with engineered ebb and floes that bring the desired outcomes to shore.

    Being conditioned to accept this next phase has been so well engineered that the masses do not see their full blown allegiance to it. What does the inter~net, i~phone(cell), and block~chain have in common? It is going to be used to “chain” in a virtual “cell” “block” “inter”nally those who exalt the “I” as the “net” closes:

    “Then shall two be in the field; one is taken along, and one is left.”

    “The field is the world…”

    There is a reason it is referred to as the “world wide web.” ~ www.

    I often marvel that most do not see this whole grand plan for what it is. Nothing we can touch in this life does not boast of a creator whether it is a house, car, or the husbandman who planted a seed that became the vine in a field in hopes of picking the fruit of his labor:

    “I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.”

    To a mere human who skips along in this temporal life seeking only his immediate pleasure and sustenance; the concept that a “Creator” planted a seed called “the first Adam” that produced 7 billion from which He plans to only take the crème of His crop that mirrors his “last Adam” is blissfully ignorant:

    “The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.”

    But to the souls such as “Luke Tran” who questions, in his comment above, these things and seeks to overcome the human nature please seek the “hidden manna” that will redeem ones soul through His Spirit:

    “To him that overcometh, to him will I give of the hidden manna.”

    Just remember there is a reason people such as Christine LaGarde are all caught up in the number “7”. The tares look like the wheat but do not produce the fruit.

    Hopefully the moderator of this site will allow you to contact me for free understandings about such things at rlm4765 at yahoo dot com that will help in seeking the precepts such I have shared thus far that are found “here a little, there a little”:

    “Whom will he teach knowledge? and whom will he make to understand the message? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little.”


  15. Hi Cathal, Putrid and everyone,

    I am also an Irishman and unfortunately have not read any of the three books which I am sure are very informative, if they were available on Kindle I would definitely be interested. However I have read through all of the comments and would like to position that there is an alternative perspective.

    Five hundred years ago Galileo scientifically discovered that the earth and by extension every aspect of creation is cyclical and not linear. Galileo was imprisoned for the remainder of his life for scientifically defying the entire establishment linear belief system.

    Persisting in the establishment linear belief system draws the type of conclusions that are being propounded, if you keep following linear belief it obviously tells you that when you have eventually reached the end of the linear world then you are definitely going to fall over the edge. Amen

    The Judaic linear belief system is not based on compassion, in the Judaic system there is no empathy for the other person, the Old Testament definition of justice ‘an eye for an eye’ is linear reasoning.

    The amazing Tibetan Wheel of Life tapestry has no written words and yet it calmly explains the cyclical aspect that is necessary to comprehend every human inter-relationship.

    The Tibetans understood that knowledge is not the mind and yet our Judaic system of linear thinking believes that an education system that consists of gathering information leads to knowledge. In effect it is a modern world of headless chickens who are intellectualizing information with the help of computers and it leads to the sum of zero in terms of knowledge. It has added misery, injustice and uncertainty for the bulk of the worlds population.

    I do not want to take from your important research, just interested in adding a scientifically based perspective on understanding the flow of universal energy and consciousness.

    Kindest regards


  16. Simple really….when the world economy collapses everything shuts down…the end….were talking about grids down all over the world and 7.5B people dropping like f*** flies in short order…the collapse will be absolutely horrible..There is no collapse or horror movie ever produced that has even come close to imagining what the collapse of BAU might look like… I’m talking about every corporation and every social program going bankrupt at once. I’m talking about people eating people. I’m talking about the worst catastrophe to ever happen in the history of mankind. Nothing has ever, or will ever come close.

    1. Mastermind, you nay-saying defeatist commie, have no idea how stupid you appear to Capitalists that have read The Reset.

      If halve the light of the world must be lost to save the other halve, then let’s have it.

      The key is to define Reality so understanding can be attained. With Understanding comes control. With control comes force applied to particular and well defined goals.

  18. If, or when the global economy collapses, crashes, implodes, whatever you want to call it, I wonder if humans, after thousands of years, finally realize that we don’t need a monetary system whatsoever. But they will probably fall for it again. The human being is a very selfish species. The human being only cares about thriving individually, they don’t care about thriving as a species. If the next man ends up poor, it must be his own fault. He just should work harder. Work more. Right?

    Without ‘money’ we would all be rich. I wish for humans to wake up and realize that the one and only system that will never fail is a system where we work with and for eachother, instead of against eachother. No barter, no trade, no 40h workweek for a paycheck that will only make you jealous of those who have a bigger paycheck and look down on those who have less than you. Money doesn’t do anything. We do all the work.

    You play your part for the community you’re in and the community takes care of you. Forget about mass production, you create 3x the goods you need and you share with other communities the goods you can’t produce yourself. Share, no barter. No trade. No sales. SHARE…

    …and we will ALL be rich, having everything we need AND WANT plus a shitload of free time. Everybody wants it, so why don’t we make it happen? Right. We’re too selfish.


    1. When The Reset happens humans will cope by killing each other. Just life I guess. Not much time left guys, be sure to write me for the notes on timing The Reset. Other readers find them very helpful, though please don’t write me unless you’ve read the series.


      1. A typical mentality. It’s just life, I guess. It’s just the way it is..

        Doesn’t it make you feel powerless? Even though, we have all the power?
        Our reality has been created for us, to benefit only a few.
        Timing the reset? How about timing the creation of a new reality that benefits all of us?

        Time is a mistery to our species, because we simply don’t understand it.
        The only thing that’s for sure, is that the time is now.


  19. I just ordered your books but the bullshit machine wont ship to Australia. Any idea why and how i can get hold of a copy?


    1. I’ve temporarily taken it offline. Should be back Saturday.

      Edit: The Amazon team asked me to delist Volume 1 from all sales outlets aside from theirs. So you can only buy it from them going forward.



  20. Reading your first book. First thought: You jump to characterize sociopathy with a pretty broad brush. I think it’s more realistic to assume that people who make what turn out to be harmful decisions as simply discounting negative outcomes. In Kunstler’s terms this may be as mundane as – “It seemed like a good idea at the time.” Given that all meaningful actions in the world have a downside – at the very least in opportunity cost – it may pay to start with less strident premises. After all, if bullshit is the motivated distortion of reality, some introspection of initial motivations is helpful.


    1. Putrid: In the End there’ll be one scumbag to rule them all. That’s ultimately what History is, a trend toward one scumbag ruling over the less smart scumbags.

      Deadwood: I hope his bullshit is real good.

      NOTaRealmerican: Yeah that’d be great. I could do with the optimism.

      Edit: Motivations? Food, fear, fighting, fucking. What else is there? Oh yeah, addiction to good bullshit.


      1. Odd theory of history there. The Highlander meets Lord of the Rings? I’m partial to the cyclical theory of history, thinkers Toynbee, Spengler etc. As opposed to – what would this be – inverse historicism? A Hegelian Shadow?
        People do have other motivations. I like Lichtenberg’s psychoanalysis on this topic. See also Joseph M. Jones, Affect as Process or the more basic work by Silvin Tomkins. Calling all enjoyment a manifestation of basic sexuality (vis-a-vis Freud), is an act of perspective taking, as opposed to claiming that sexuality can be an expression of enjoyment. Anyway, since the 1970’s and Kohut’s split from Kernberg most serious psychologists don’t think that life motivations can be boiled down to transformation reactions of basic lust and aggression. Then again, that statements just a lazy appeal to authority.

        Enjoying the book, repartee minutiae aside. Will have more comments and questions. Cheers.


  21. Could universal “sociopathy” or screwing people, treating them as means to an end – using them…merely be an expression of humans exosomatic energy consumption? In Nietzsche’s primordial situation where man measured himself against man and the first obligation arose of fear and guilt? Obligation = guilt = motivation toward action, the expenditure of energy. The goal of the master morality is to get others to expend energy for you? Now debt creates demand for oil, and if getting oil yields net energy, the economy can grow. Less net energy requires more debt and does not yield growth.


      1. Didn’t follow this one, but loved reading it nonetheless. In general I agree – individuals do not exist. We are legion.

        Funny story Umberto Maturana in The Tree of Knowledge was one of the early cyberneticians. Bateson, who noted Maturana as carrying on his closely related work – identified the double-bind as that which I think traps people in the grips of Religion. Anyway, funny story – Gregory Bateson was the landlord of Rirchard Bandler who invented NLP and – of all coincidences – credited Bateson greatly. Tony Robbines lifted NLP from Richard Bandler and some bastardized version of these original Magical manipulations have filtered into all new age philisophical movements. Examples would be Est/Landmark (Fernando Flores).

        Anyway, ordinary folks aren’t hip to systems thinking – but it’s linked to everything from consciousness to evolution to markets. Maturana’s term is autopoesis – how a system can create and perpetuate itself.


    1. You’ll note persistent resentment against Religion in the output of most “philosophers”, including Nietzsche and Socrates. That’s because they had no power, but desired power. There’s only power within Religion.


      1. I’ll give you that, if Religion is defined broadly enough. If you think about Power too much, like Foucault, you get lost as a fish in water. Power comes to the powerful from those who have been bullied, hoodwinked, swindled or trained to believe their energy belongs to someone else. That’s about as systemically broad as I can get. Power is a funny double entendre. In engineering, power is “the ability to do work.” In human action – it’s the ability to accomplish things with other people’s energy. What Religion is designed to conceal is that the Power comes from the parishoners. The con is that the Powerful person looks like a great man – after all, look what he is able to accomplish! With other peoples energy, that is – or in the case of economics, the money which represents a demand on the same.


  22. The only power is Jesús Christ, hence one day including lord Rothschild and lucifer whom he worships will bow their knees.

    That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth, And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Lastly while it’s good to plan and provide best for your family as you can this physical world is only the Matrix.

    “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

    REAL POWER is not having a fear of death because you know you have everlasting life through the living god incarnate Jesús Christ.


  23. Ironic note about Nietzsche, is during his final life stages when he was instatitionalized and wouldn’t speak for weeks on end when he finally did speak he would blurt out bible verses he had memorized as a kid.


  24. Thanks for the Paki/china (war w/china) forum insight Putrid. Had no idea it even existed ………….
    This old man likes being around you young guys as I learn a little more every day.


  25. It is a damn shame that not one in one hundred either knows, reads what we have wrote here, or understands why we are in the shit we are in. And that same one in one hundred had no, including the other 99 folk, hand in the complete shit you describe.

    These all powerful rulers, as clever as they are, didnt think the interwebs would be any more threat to their way of life than the fax machine. You are underestimating peoples innate ability to be human. As well as the fact that this is the only time in our collective his-tory, we stand under what has been done to all of us, where ever you are.

    As I am not my ruling class, where I be, I would hazard a guess, neither are you.

    I wish you well though, I wish you all well. It will, as was ever so, up to us to pick up the pieces, should we survive, and let those that were born to, rise to the top again? Until we dont, eh?



    1. I’m sorry to say that if you believe that the effect of the internet wasn’t foreseen by our controllers, you are very much mistaken. It has been around since at least the 1970s and even social media acknowledged to have been foreseen. It is also a key component of the control matrix – which we have been very cleverly tricked into paying for, as always. Not only does it monitor our every move and state of mind but it is an invaluable tool for beta-testing reactions, propaganda and political ideas. I personally believe the truth movement is one huge beta test. None of these tools is left idle in the quest for power and control.


  26. I just read your first two volumes and am ordering volume three.

    What you did in before the collapse – gathering the most prescient of insights/commentary from experts.i was doing from 2009 to 2011 during my time working a hedge fund trying to profit immensely, and doing so temporarily, from the transfer of pre gfc private debts to the public balance sheets. I thought if the best viewpoints om the truly foundational issues in our socioeconimic system could be gathered, synthesized and placed on a forum where the best minds could collobarate to create the best outluts we could use the webs to get these best ideas to the ‘policy makers’ merely buying time with monetary heroin.

    I gave up because i ‘had’ to prioritize getting the debt money for all the typical reasons- family foremost. I also had not fully recognized the problem of the mean people and believed our institutions intentions better than they truly be.

    The system is undoubtably brokem and I cannot tell you how greatful i am for the undoubtably hurculian effort you have made here. I only wish i has found your work sooner.

    Im buying the reset. I saw you have some updates post volume 3. Should i go ahead and buy the issue on amazon or can i buy an updated version elsewhere?

    Many blessings.


    1. Zach,

      There appears to be a problem of the mind pertaining to Religion—which causes me to wonder whether Extinction will result from The Reset.

      Namely, Capitalism has trained and encouraged humans to be selfish and competitive—via the reward of private profit and possessions. And the System rewards the mean people with a little power.

      Unfortunately, and I see this in my own readership, this produces a human group incapable of avoiding Extinction. If our species is on the causal path of Extinction then only a collaborative and collective response would avoid collective death.

      There appears to be an inability to transmit and process negative information and knowledge, due to competitive pressures within the Capitalistic Religion. For example, I’ve asked readers to write reviews as this would help decision makers “find the work sooner.” But only a tiny percentage do.

      Unfortunately, they are incapable of transcending their base nature and trained behaviors.

      So you see, and this is sad now, because if the Top were to read The Reset, Edition Six, you’ll see I have deducted that an Educational Solution is not possible. And now an assault against the species is the best path to take. Go ahead and see for yourself. It’s the only System Level solution we could come up with–given that an Educational Solution has now been ruled out.

      What’s ironic, is that the readers who didn’t write a review for base reasons, will most likely die. As will their children.

      This is the tragedy of Demoralization.

      For myself, I was smart enough not to marry and have children, to be completely separate and detached—I’ve lived a mostly meaningless and truncated life—filled with intellectual and aesthetic pleasure.



        1. The only reason our species got this far was because the weapons were so primitive. We’re a fearful species mostly, which is why we crave and possess weapons and fortified positions.

          A small part of the species is intelligent, and they keep building better and more efficient weapons. The vast majority are dumb. And then there’s only a tiny fraction that thinks well.

          This tiny fraction, of sober men, are now looking at 7.5 billion scummy mean entitled dumb aggressive assholes.

          As far as I can deduct, from debates with Capitalists, there’s only a few hundred guys dealing with the Reality. There’s the guys at the BIS, the top Bankers, The War Kings, then Putin and Xi factions. That’s it I reckon. What’s really scary is do these guys understand the System completely?

          Since the transmission of understanding is slowing down, due to amorphous fear and cowardice, I’m afraid important insights can’t reach them. This reminds me of the past. We know from the correspondence of decision makers prior to World War One that they were ignorant of what they marched toward.

          Has anything changed?

          I have a good memory and so I recall reading, many moons ago, that the top economic strategic group in London in 2000 faced a decision point: enter a 1930s style Depression or double down on the property-finance racket. They chose the later option. This level of cynical manipulation and understanding gives me hope. On the other hand, can these guys abandon national loyalties and act collectively to protect the species? I doubt it.

          That’s why The Families are so important. Their track record gives me hope: This type of economic strategic thinking also preceded 9/11.

          Unfortunately, the failure of the second Iraq war clearly shows the decline of our Civilization–it especially showed a very weak baby boomer generation that couldn’t respond properly and coherently to organized resistance.

          So we’re left with a very small network of men, quite distant and secluded, who are dealing with Reality. I fear they lack the cohesion and shared understanding to save us.

          The rest of humanity is brainwashed and dreaming. And that makes me wonder about the Human Mind—where the Dream is infinitely better and more real than Reality.



          1. How can you say there is only a few hundred guys dealing with reality, when in fact these few hundred guys are the primary reason billions are not dealing with reality?

            i.e. its them doing the brainwashing.

            Also, there are countless millions that are searching in one way or another for that which you seem to have found or at least convinced yourself and others you’ve found.


            1. Yeah,

              There’s a lot of blame to go around, I often wonder who’s to blame? Or who deserves the most blame?

              It has to be The Families.

              The System Framework was clearly anti-human since the very beginning, and it went full blown evil by World War One. Even the wars prior to World War, especially important is the Boer War, should have forced a rethink at the Top.

              But it didn’t, and the Brits let the great war happen. Still no reform. Then the Great Depression, then World War Two. Then the Korean War. Then the Vietnam War. Then the Gulf Wars and Afghanistan, then Libya and Syria.

              And those are just the kinetic wars.

              The CIA handbook got it right: “This institutionalized ignorance is what motivates them to commit all manner of crimes.”

              Once you embrace Capitalism, you require Imperialism, which involves all manner of crimes. Thus, the System requires ignorance to maintain the support of the masses. What’s amazing, is that the majority willingly pay to be brainwashed.


      1. Thanks Cathal. How do i get a copy of edition six? I just ordered a copy of the reset from Amazon…

        I will write a review when i finish the series.


  27. The first volume is an interview with what Max Keiser calls a “suicide banker.” It’s a good read to discover what kind of Mind and Emotion we are actually dealing with on the System level.

    These bankers don’t physically commit suicide, but game the system to it’s death, killing the goose for her eggs. It basically lays out the psychology of a suicide banker who doesn’t have enough brain power or emotional depth to live life without being hyperpredatory: that (financial,physical)survival is ensured by predation on a (dumbass human) species rather than cooperation. Cooperation here does not mean zero predation, but rather sustainable harvest. In other words, the smartest predatory bankers would attempt to organize the game for a continuous sustainable harvest. But again, survival is not the goal of this kind of predator. The kind of predator portrayed here organizes everything in his life to compensate for the underlying feeling of complete vulnerability of actually being alive and awake in the world. The system is not really predatory in the sense that it is specifically hunting someone or something. However, it has entered the “joy killing” spree phase and will fall on all those who themselves have succombed to this sociopathic sickness, which happens to be everyone except for a few post-industrial hunters and gatherers. This won’t be the end of sociopaths by no means. But it’s possible that with the immense physical impact of the reset, human beings may speciate into neoaboriginal types (homo sapien sapien) and dumbass/sociopath types (homo sapien fragilis). The differentiation now may only be partly physical DNA but primarily emotional and mental. These differences will be accentuated in the reset by geographical/societal/electronic separation and thus evolve into a distinct division of species.

    Thus the introduction of sociopathy into the human genome will have caused speciation to occur. I don’t think ecological studies have done a whole lot of research on intraspecies predation…

    Interestingly enough, I can’t leave a review on amazon because I don’t have the minimum amount of valid debit or credit card purchases.


  28. Cathal,

    As someone with a background in international business, I’ve been researching the topics of ecological economics, financial economics and the implications of exponential growth in a finite world for many years and broadly speaking, have arrived at pretty much the same conclusions as yours. I’ve been following your posts around the web (primarily ZH) as well as other seemingly enlightened bloggers and ZHer’s – Tverberg, Berman, Orlov and many, many others. Like you, I’m from a European celtic nation (but not Ireland, although I have Irish ancestry) and live relatively happily in the Middle Kingdom. Ok, intro over, I’ll cut to the chase… I’m impressed by your take on the subject matter and I want to order the books, but waiting up to 3 months for delivery via Amazon is not ideal. Any suggestions?

    Keep up the great work!


    1. I’d order from and they should arrive within three weeks. Books don’t get held up unlike other goods. I recently sent copies to Australia and they arrived within two weeks. With express it’s even faster.

      I’m in Shanghai by the way, beers are on me if you’re in town 😉



  29. I think it’s due to the incredible power of 7. I’m seeing it now everywhere which Christine LaGarde mentioned way back in 2014. These people are magicians who rule us.

    Whoever, is behind number 7 rules this galaxy or universe or is a God. I don’t know but, I know for sure, the most powerful rulers of this planet earth are no match for number 7 and are merely aligning with this force coming to Earth Realm.

    Consider this…Donald Trump was 70 Years, 7 Months and 7 Days old when he became president of America and now …Mohammed Bin Salman…The chaos he is causing in Middle East..Crown Prince of Arabia is the Seventh Son …

    We know what the western folklore talk about being a Seventh Son.

    I believe the author is right on the mark. The reset is assured and it would be Petrodollar …Save up on Petrol, Food, Weapons…I don’t think humans can take the third cycle of 7 by next year..


  30. just ordered the books.
    You might want to read up on on this guy :
    (3 August 1864 – 11 March 1926)

    About a year after I read it putin announced he is going to start to work on a weapon, which is described
    by the prophet to be one projectile dropped in the northsea that destroys the uk and all the low lands.

    To keep his gifts intact, this guy had to run around in wars not killing.
    All these wars might be the elites ( real elites playing the puppets ), tricking us into damaging our souls.


    1. Rensburg seems to be the kind of guy who always backs the losing side. he was instrumental about the doomed Boer rebellion during the Great War , not to mention his role in the Boer War.

      if his gift were real he would have predicted how the battles of the war would have progresses and saved the Boers from further destruction. I think he is, like many ‘prophets’, just another psy-op. The very fact that he was not executed after the 1915 rebellion tells everything which we have to know about him.


  31. It seems curious to me that the Reset is rarely discussed amid the backdrop of (1) the beginning of a ‘prolonged sunspot minimum’ potentially similar to the decreased solar output recorded during the Maunder Minimum and/or (2) the fact that earth’s magnetic field is declining rapidly – with all that implies…(they ain’t chem-trailing cuz our magnetic shield is doing swell and they just like grids in the sky…amirite?)

    Seems like the earth has set a clock on humans as well….how will humans deal with the Reset on top of the earth’s crust going crazy…? All the nuke reactors ensure humanity’s extinction….I guess I need to practice up my ‘End-Times’ bullshit, so I can die surrounded by hotties….


  32. DJIA -666…a signal? FU to Trump for releasing the memo?

    Should we expect a super bowl false flag this weekend followed by a “black Monday” for stawks?

    Regardless, this is some fantastic kabuki..(yes, I am entertained)


  33. Just finished re-reading the Reset, I really appreciate the info, viewpoints and perspective. It puts a lot together from an angle that I had not previously considered. Thanks Putrid.

    Sapere Aude (or someone using that name) was commenting on ZH last night talking about the Red Queen syndrome, maybe the same Sapere from the Reset? Anyways, I found it interesting…


  34. At this point the informed thinker has covered all the possible scenarios and his place amidst what is coming. No amount of cognition; history, theories, scenarios, are going to change the evidentiary facts of deep prolonged existential crisis, a fully realized knowledge.
    The element of human nature remaining, that which is most neglected, most ellusive in 21st century man will be the difference.
    The emotions have been mastered. The fear and loathing mastered.
    What the remnant, the distilled, the intellectual hardy superior is now being called to master is the conative. Yes our social engineering is complete, I had to look this word up.
    Nietzsche described the “will to power”.
    Maslow describes how the human will operates.
    In effect, our ability to make our own life, actions, endeavors, and the world around us OURS. Not narcissiticaly or selfishly, but to take and execute positive moral actions that are determined, informed, and goal-directed.
    Monumental interior struggle to end bad habits, get off the couch, galvanize oneself with conviction. That my wine sipping repose of pleasure will be what haunts me as the last things and persons I cared about are burning around me.
    Action is all there is.
    And that burns my conscience like hellfire.
