    1. I went all in today; exiting my Crypto USDTs. Crypto is far too risky going forward.

      Russian forces, aided by Chinese and other allies; will commence assault on stranded NATO forces in Northern Syria and the Ukraine. Any minute now.

      Flanking forces have been moved to Serbia.

      Not sure about Afghanistan yet.

      There’s other moves; in the energy markets which I’ll keep off of this site (as every side reads this site). And I would prefer no panic right now.

      USA elites have responded by increasing censorship.

      The panic can break at any moment … relocations are happening.

      That’s it I guess; I’ll relocate to China in two weeks.

  1. Agreed. The sanctions against China and Iran will not work. In fact, they will work against the United States and actually result in jobs lost in the US which could cost Trump the election in 2020. The Fed is in a bind. China has stopped buying Treasury debt and Iran has stopped selling oil in dollars as has China. With all those unwanted dollars coming home the Fed has to purchase them in the form of Treasury bonds and raise interest rates rapidly to keep the value of the dollar but tank the markets. Perhaps it’s all part of the plan. A reset of the currency with an exchange rate; one for those inside the United States and one for the rest of the world.Interesting times.

  2. If the Russians are in Serbia, that means at least Bulgaria (traditionally pro-Russian) is in cahoots as well.

    Few people think about Bulgaria but it always played a peculiar position during the world wars. Bulgaria’s German King dragged it into the Great War but it did not do too much against Russia, and during WW2 it refused to fight USSR or Turkey so its troops were mostly used to garrison Greece.

        The Japanese, ironically, might show more respect on the westerners. They did not kill the westerners ; even the US PoWs killed after the Hiroshima bombings might have been already dead and the survivors just beat the corpses to vent their anger.

        There was a famous white guy who was a baseball player during world war 2 (he was a Russian whose dad moved to Japan after the Revolution). He was actually allowed to use a Japanese name and was not imprisoned (partly for his own protection) until the war reached its last stages and everyone got crazy.

        https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/2dc41d10

        Because he was a Russian (at that time it was impossible for a non Japanese to take a Japanese citizenship) he was subject to being sent back to the USSR but the Japanese allowed to him to stay, which he did until he died in 1957.

    1. To Billy Lone Bear:

      You can actually chart the human population growth side by side when we went onto the Petro-Dollar. What you’ll see is a massive increase upwards some would say exponential.

      Start a chart going back to around 1000 A.D. and move forward to today to see what I am talking about. Population growth used to be pretty constant and then we had small increases coming during the Industrial Revolution and then massive increases with Oil.

      I think one needs to be able to conceptualize the impact of Oil and how it powers the current civilization. What happens when it no longer can power civilization in the scope of today? The Hills Group and SRS Rocco have done good analysis of the situation. We are going back in time. I believe in The Reset Cathal stated the low end will be around 30% of people will go.

      I think a good assessment of who goes would be: the elderly, the compromised individuals (handicaps, obese, mental retards, diseased, etc.), many criminals will be killed….many will probably be left in cells to perish. Those who are unprepared for what is coming are at high risk. Several situations could develop causing wars that could kill off a significant portion of the population. There are many variables that are leading to massive declines in population no matter which way this thing goes.

      1. You are completely incorrect. The timing is right, but your reasons are wrong.
        Germ theory became known around 1920. Soap was introduced in hospitals and institutions. It became understood that simply washing your hands would prevent the spread of germs and, more importantly, disease.
        Germ theory and oil can only be related by timing, if you think oil was only used sparingly before 1920. However, I would argue that as survival rates increased in the Western world, oil demand simply went up.

  3. I think that at least some sections of world will be quite safer, as if nothing is happening. That actually happened in England during the twilight of Roman Empire – England did not enter a chaos until a century after losing contact with Rome. The Romans in England essentially instituted a self-rule which lasted till end of 5th century, and with no more Romans coming to there they were absorbed into the local population.

    The most populated areas will be very cruel, with lots of refugees. Most of them won’t survive the first month, and the longer-surviving ones would be the most nasty ones who will be not too much unlike the zombies in many movies.

    China, at least the major cities, will probably be safe for the time being. It didn’t fall into chaos immediately after the end of empire – Yuan Shikai, the military strongman who basically ran the empire’s armies even before the fall, still held power until 1916. It was after his death that all hell broke loose, but the fighting were in the countryside and the major cities of Peking and Shanghai were not really affected until the Japanese invasion of 1937.

    The French movie 317th platoon https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=la+317e+section written by a French reporter who became a prisoner of war at Dien Bien Phu (his fellow reporter tried to escape and was never heard again, probably killed by the locals somewhere in the jungle) shows what happened to the white men who were stuck in Laos after French rule collapsed in Indochina. Asians are nice and cozy for whites when things are bad for them, but if the whites show weakness, they suddenly turn hostile. Fast Eddy, a frequent commentator in Tverberg’s site, tried living at Bali but after a series of trouble with the local Balinese he moved to New Zealand.

    There are reports of some Russian soldiers who ended up in Afghanistan and restarted their lives as afghan muslims, but at least the afghans could be called whites and so could assimilate the russians. Not so in Asia.

    Africa is a different story. The blacks still fear the whites. Harry Hewitt is going to try the African routes – there are many nicer places in Africa, well away from general population , where things are still cozy. Even Mugabe could not steal all of whites farms because many of such places were only accessible by airplanes.

  6. Hello Turkish Visitors,

    I’ve noticed a surge in traffic from Turkey lately, so I’ll write a short note for you guys.

    First, you’re doing well.

    Second, continue what you’re doing.

    Third, perhaps lower the rhetoric just a touch.

    The de-dollarization process can be painful in the short term. You must reject IMF entreats; and spurn experts who advise raising rates and capital controls.

    Take the Pain: The avoidance of pain is the father of suffering.

    The State should be the sole buyer of any Gold mined within the territory of the State; paid with Lira. This approach implies the Lira is backed by Gold.

    When Putin says so, default on the $ loans: I’d like the blood flow cut-off before amputation.

    Yours,

    Putrid

    Edit: Oh and … eh … this might be a little late … but

    You did take out Lira loans and buy some Bling, right?

    OK Capitalists, Let’s analyze the Lira – Gold Daily Chart: 6,400 to 8560 in the last three days. 33 percent … not bad.

    If the Turks default, which I’m assuming is their game plan: banking exposure is Spain 36, France 16, USA 8, UK 8. Am I right? Hope so.

    Now, many of you players are taking out domestic debt for Gold.

  8. According to the Bank for International Settlements, international banks had outstanding loans of $224 billion to Turkish borrowers, including $83 billion from banks in Spain, $35 billion from banks in France, $18 billion from banks in Italy, $17 billion each from banks in the United States and in the United Kingdom, and $13 billion from banks in Germany.

    Italian banks in for $18B??? I think we just found the mechanism to spread this Turkish collapse into Europe proper. Unless Spain and their $83B take the cake.

  12. In an earlier discussion with Putrid some months ago I recalled the time when some truck drivers blockaded a few oil refineries, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/924574.stm and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_protests_in_the_United_Kingdom. Within about 3 days across the country the large grocery stores were EMPTY, no fuel at filling stations, etc. This wasn’t a real oil supply shock of course, the army were on standby to sort out the blockades if necessary, but the speed with which the systems upon which we are utterly dependent collapsed was stunning to watch. I remember walking around a grocery store and it was like a zombie apocalypse film, empty shelves, stunned-looking people shuffling around trying to find anything worth buying. Within a week, everyone had gone back to ‘normal life’, no one gave a shit and no one was talking about it. The populace have only become more dumbed-down and ignorant since then, so the reaction to any serious collapse scenario (oil or banking, or both!) will be bumpy to say the least. People are just so clueless.

  16. Even before 1900 England had trouble feeding itself. Germany had its best chance starving UK out in 1915, but the chancellor Bethmann Hollweg, a coward, backed down a couple month before food riots would have begun in there. I have read, perhaps in one of Putrid’s writings, that half of all shipments to England during 1943 was food to feed Britain’s pop (46 mil back the) and even with such influx rationing continued until 1954, 9 years after WW2 ended.

    This time England would be totally fucked, and it is likely that feudal estates , set up by noble landowners, will return there to protect the nobles and their immediate minions.

    1. Farmer and Arroyo,

      Another thing to think about is the actual nuclear reactors that are in the United States and their subsequent locations. If you think the likelihood of nuclear war is unlikely but the chances of total system failure are high then I would steer clear of the states where the 99 Nuclear Reactors are at. Mostly East Coast and Midwest states like Illinois are harboring lots of nuclear reactors. How many of these have built in mechanisms that can cool the spent fuel rods in order to prevent a nuclear meltdown? No idea here but it is better to not take any chances.

      https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operating/map-power-reactors.html

      Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Montana, the Dakotas, and Oregon seem to be clear of Nuclear Power Plants. Lots of wide open space out in those regions. Lots of rural farm land. I would stay away from Denver and the Airport there, it is a Masonic entity. The region is mostly demographically homogeneous and the Whites control just about all of the farmlands and productive capital out there.

      The SouthEast Ohio, East Kentucky, and West Virginia are also clear but are downwind from disaster. Mostly demographically homogeneous but a historically poor region susceptible to clannish fueds. Pretty much many of the people there are already poor so it wouldn’t be a huge change it things collapse. Plenty of timber, lakes, and Appalachian mountains. Lots of innovative living and a slower lifestyle there. Large amounts of Amish/Mennonites live there, they are about as low tech as you can get. Most of their energy comes from humans and animal labor.

      Maine is also clear but you better have been preparing for a while if you wish to survive the winters there. Better have a wood stove and be in optimal physical condition to chop wood. Short growing seasons. Close to the Atlantic for fishing. I imagine many will survive up there but it will be some of the hardest mofos out there and none of those Somalis .gov/UN dropped off in Lewiston are gonna make it.

      Arroyo,

      Get as far away from the cities as you can especially any major/metro city and even the suburbs. Get out into the countryside if you have to stay in the US. Find any local orchards and those who produce fruit and food on a yearly basis, they are out there. You will find these people at local farmers markets and other like minded events. I would make friends with these people asap.
      I would invest in a couple of good water filters and you can setup your own manual pump on a well (There are devices made of PVC pipe for cheap) or I would setup a rainwater harvest system that connects into the gutters of homes/buildings.

      I was in Costa Rica for a summer a few years ago, very interesting setup down there.
      Positives: much of their energy comes from hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, and solar.
      They were able to run their country for over 100 days on renewables a few years back.
      Many of the people there do not rely on cars to get around, many are able to walk to and fro wherever they need to go. If not, lots of motorbikes and small vehicles. No gas guzzlers like in the USA.
      As to the water situation, everyday I was in country it rained in the afternoon for about 2 hours so there is plenty of rainwater that could be harvested for usage.
      Food: There main crops were bananas, mangos, plaintains, coffee, and maize. Lots and lots of tropical fruits all over the place.
      The country really is about the greenest place there is.
      Spanish is widely spoken but due to the influx of Western Foreigners English is understood by the majority and signage is in both spanish/english. This makes it easy to navigate the country. Lots of business cater to Westerners and idiot tourists who get scammed.
      Weather is obviously tropical so there is not worry about trying to survive in a cold-weather environment.

      Downsides: No military to speak of. Any nation with a somewhat organized military could easily take over.
      Volcanoes, not active but the risk is there.
      Risk of hurricanes.
      Mostly Castizo/Mestizo population but with growing Asian and African Carribean immigrants making for the lovely environment of diversity that we see working so well.
      Infrastructure is rather poor and the road/highway system does not work well.
      Much of their country relies on tourism and money from rich foreigners.
      Westerners are looked at to be scammed or conned by natives at an alarming rate.

      Take that for what you will.

      Read this and the comments, they can create as many ‘claims’ as they like but they can not create more primary and secondary wealth, we are heading for hyperinflation and collapse. There is simply not enough surplus energy in the system to support the level of debt that needs to be paid back, so creating more claims will solve nothing.

    1. In 1923, after a huge earthquake, Japanese police and community support groups launched a big hunt of Koreans. About half of all Koreans in Tokyo at that time, or half of about 15,000, plus a few natives of southern island who did not speak proper japanese were cleansed on that day, and that move might have saved Tokyo from becoming “the second city of Korea”. I think the local natives will get upset and a boiling point will be reached.

      The Japanese wanted a quick target to vent people’s anger and the Koreans were ready targets, taking poor people’s jobs away. It was quick and very efficient; they stopped people at random, asked them to pronounce some words which are pronounced a certain way by the Japanese and is not easy for non-Japanese to learn, and simply killed those who could not speak it correctly.

      Modern humans are even more angry and trained for violence thru all these games – the example of mass shooters who appear to be completely normal until the shooting starts are legion – When the power keg is lit all the emotions will be released.

  22. The goal is the same (control), though it can be a matter of degrees: destruction is a form of extreme control.

    The desired rate at which a goal is arrived at will help dictate the route.

    We can understand that economics, finance, demographics, politics, and warfare are all really just variations on competition and cooperation, a set of self-reinforcing strategies and approaches, the “x is y by other means” idea.
    For the sake of simplicity we can abstract away some notions, with the understanding that various nations/bodies/organizations/etc will collude, cooperate, and compete through various means and in various degrees.

    So a new ‘system of thinking’ would recognize Hegel isn’t the ONLY game in town, but just one approach, and the real goal would be to discover the most likely, most efficient way forward without reducing the world to ashes.

    And the key here is this: either the rate of change to arrive at some goal x is controlled, or else it is *not*. So the object of control is to control the rate of change.

    The purpose of controlling the rate of change (from one order to the next) is to maximize profit/control FROM controlling the rate of change, and *minimize* cost in the form of massive ecological disaster/collapse (as would happen via nuclear war as just one example). If there must be a ‘purge’ or ‘burn’, better it is a ‘controlled burn’ followed by allowing the ‘fields to sit fallow’ for a period.

    So The Families must pick a rate of change that aims for the aforementioned goal, and naturally, that will be the one that preserves the most options along with all the other constraints.

    That’s an important word: constraints. Constraints, such as the situation presently concerning the cost to produce a barrel of gasoline, and constraints such as the key resources remaining, dictate how much time we have left with the current system.

    A second order constraint is OTHERS realizing how much time we have left, and attempting to move or act before other powers on the international stage. It is like the old saying, “even accounting for the fact you’ll underestimate a timeline, you’ll *still* underestimate”–so it becomes a sort of situation where knowing there is a horizon of uncertainty at a particular date means that a risk emerges of that timeline rapidly shrinking and converging towards a much sooner date–a ‘panic’ as it were.

    And as it is always better to be the one controlling the rate of change, so it is better to accelerate when already accelerating. Pressing the breaks too hard when everything is sliding on thin ice, when there’s too much momentum, risks losing control. Explosions and collapses are catastrophic. Implosions are controlled and minimize damage.

    The powerful do not operate from a place of poverty. Total war, total destruction, is poverty.

    The threat of war, such as encircling Russia, is a loaded gun meant to earn concessions, not to kill. Nations are primarily robbers. There’s little to be gained from lording over smoking ruins. Which is not to say loaded guns don’t sometimes accidentally go off or backfire, only that WW3 would hardly be intentional. M.A.D. is very much an “emperor has no clothes situation”, where everyone would use them if they could, but they won’t because it would be total destruction–but they must maintain the benefit of the pretense that they are willing.

    To summarize, if you want to think about systems, go beyond Hegel.

    Think about the rate of change. Both destructive explosions and rust are oxidation processes–the only difference is in the rate of oxidation, the rate of change.

    You want fast change? War and hyperinflation to destroy standards of living and create discontent.

    You want slow change? Demographic replacement, and shifting industry.

    Of course, there are other avenues for both these, but you get the gist.

The point of this thread is to tell the reader that the Russians are no longer playing along, (strangely Rothschild went public with the same message soon afterwards): we can anticipate war in Northern Syria, and the Russians need to secure the Ukraine via invasion (see volume 3).

      I’m thinking the Russians will prefer to finish Northern Syria first; before invading the Ukraine, since war on two fronts increases risk.

      They will also want to weaken their enemy as much as possible before fighting: so they’ll get allies to de-dollarize and $ default. (Turkey, etc.)

      They’ll also discontinue international energy exchange contracts which should result in an energy shock.

      1. “silver could collapse as industrial demand withers due to the spreading chaos.”

        I seriously doubt it. As occurred in 2009 any drop off in industrial demand for silver was more than made up for with investment demand (as reflected by the spiking premiums on physical silver in 2008 after the paper orchestrated price crash). Only 800 million ounces of silver are mined each year and recycled silver supplies are dropping. Silver mining production is also in decline yet demand is still increasing. There have been silver production deficits for years and unlike gold central banks generally do not hold silver. The ludicrously low silver price is due to the absurd paper leverage in the London/US Comex silver markets (same for gold) and has nothing to do with the physical market whatsoever.

        Many investors around the world are wishing for a return to sound money. Precious metal cryptos such as Kinesis created by ABX offer this opportunity. They will also increase demand for physical gold/silver and effectively remonetise both gold and silver in the process. The ITO and ICOs for Kinesis are coming soon. As these currencies will pay a yield based on transaction fees generated by sending, spending or selling the currencies they have generated a lot of interest. This should further tighten supply as each gold and silver currency has to be physically backed on a 1:1 basis.

        kinesis.money

        Finally 70% of silver is mined as a by product of lead, zinc, copper and gold. A global depression would actually cause a reduction in base metal mining resulting in an even tighter supply issues for silver. I think you could actually find the price of silver actually spiking upwards as shortages increase. Above ground supplies of silver are a lot less than many people realise. Finally on an inflation adjusted basis, silver is at the cheapest price in it’s history.

  29. How to get filthy rich?

    If we’re correct: (and it’s perfectly ok to be wrong concerning the Future; so long as you hedge) then the best approach is the stacking of assets not inflated by all the debt/leverage.

    I can only think of commodities; but even commodity producers are using debt to stay afloat; so they’re inflated as well:

    This is including farmers and ag corporations in the USA and Canada; and consumers of commodities are using debt to finance consumption also.

    Grazing lands have been inflated by the property racket as well.

    In the EU, farmers would be reduced to financial difficulties and some bankruptcies, though not hunger, without EU organized subsidies.

    Actually, in Eire, if you bought land off of a distressed farming family; there’s a chance they’ll eventually shoot you out of revenge.

    Farmers are emotionally attached to their generational farms in the Old World. For example, in Eire, land exchanges hands, on average, every 400 years.

    In my opinion; all the indexes are screwed up by the mounting cost of usury, and have been for 300 years.

    So how do we analyze and approach this to get “filthy rich”?

    Venezuela may be instructive, a formerly wealthy nation adjusting to a low energy economy; reports are that nice upper class properties in the capital are going for 100 ounces of silver.

    In my opinion; property will be a bad bet going forward, they depreciate and if the labour market is broken they can’t earn a rental income.

    Forestry has very little, or zero, operational costs. Grazing lands are good too, as they can be rented.

    One must be mindful of political economy; Farmers have a lot of political power as they feed the peasants in the cities. They’re organized politically in most nations and are armed with long guns. Taxing farmers is like taxing your food supply: that’s political and collective suicide. So the threat of the tax man taking your agricultural wealth is low.

    Hotels and apartments in city centres? Not sure if many people will be vacationing 🙂

    The metal that’s most interesting is silver. The govs and strong hands aren’t stacking it; as it’s difficult to store in large quantities, and I expect its price to collapse in the next six months as we enter a global depression. Can it go below 10$s?? You betcha.

    Our banker friends attached to the Russian elites say silver will perform as money in the East to help stabilise and hold the market together. In the energy shock in the 70s, I believe silver went to 520$s per ounce in todays fiat terms.

    The Russians are going to weaken the West, quite severely I believe, by retiring their energy contracts with the Western controlled energy exchange: ICE. Once this happens, or goes public, there’ll be panic stacking of all commodities and energy shortages. I believe this will collapse the paper markets and derivatives contracts.

    So the best play in my opinion is to use unsecured debt, just before TSHTF, to buy silver. Certain markets will collapse completely; but other markets are effectively permanent: grazing lands, gold, silver, forestry, orchards.

    Governments will be suicidal to ban gold as that would just cause the gold to exit the country toward the East, where it’ll be in usage.

    Of interest is that the Bankers say the West will collapse; only the East will survive. I’m not that pessimistic; certain parts of the West are in fairly good shape: Eire, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Germania including Poland etc., Croatia, Peru, Chile, Paraguay. If the financial systems stay functional to some extent; these surplus parts of the West may be able to continue trading with each other.

    1. In the big picture, the next year and a half of the Reset involves the USD gaining in (fake) strength as the peripheral country currencies lose value due to excessive dollar denominated debt. This will cause a hyperinflation of sorts in those countries where the best and only protection will be real assets. That won’t be getting rich, it will be attempting to preserve purchasing power against total ruin. Condos in Venezuela are cheap in dollar terms for a reason! No one would dare live there.

      As or if EM countries renege on dollar debt claims (if this is truly the start of the Reset, that’s what they will now do), this should cause the opposite effect here in the US. We should have a form of dollar strength coupled with a widening depression in activity. A reserve currency has never hyperinflated. Ironically, we could have strong equity markets as money flees here. Or not. I don’t really know. However, as a dollar holder, I do not yet have to worry about my national currency disappearing. EM may look cheap in dollar terms, but post the Reset, its not clear to me one can assert the value of those claims in foreign countries.

      In any case, for a USD holder, best course of action now is to hold dollar assets and wait for the fall-out. Martin Armstrong has been clear that it will be a STRONG dollar that breaks the global financial system, as it drives all other countries out of it. At the end of this one or two year process, we could have the rest of world effectively isolating itself against the dollar hegemony. Then it will get interesting. I would expect dollar holders to attempt to flee the system. Thus, capital controls would be put in place here, and the country effectively locked down.

      That is when Gold will take off.

      We may be able to game this and get, or remain, filthy rich. However, it’s going to get dicey. Personally, I am more interested in plain old survival! There will be a political response to these economic changes. EM countries may limit or prohibit foreign investment at artificially lowered prices due to currency fluctuations. The US itself will prohibit citizens from protecting themselves by restricting capital flows. They may even prohibit personal travel. By the time people know they should leave, it may be impossible. US citizens may be persona non grata in every country in the world for all I know. And then where does that leave your assets and/or profits?

    In downtown Shanghai, last night, three hotels refused my custom because foreigners are not permitted anymore. Without a particular license, a hotel can no longer accept foreigners, and the fine for one illegal foreigner for one night is 100,000 RMB.

    (Edit: One stipulation for attaining a permit to accept foreign guests is that the hotel must have a staff member able to speak English. This stipulation is essentially corralling foreigners into places whereby they can be more efficiently surveilled.)

    There is a significant attitudinal change toward foreigners; mostly due to state propaganda concerning the Trade War; whereby Chinese subjects are asked to not buy US products. Even at my work place; whereby I maintain a very low level presence; I’m witnessing negative, irrational behaviour in public toward foreigners; almost inconceivable a short while ago.

    I believe this is due to growing stresses in the unconscious mind, and will only get worse: it’s ok now to be mean to the Other.

    This suggests that as the Reset encompasses the World; you’ll only be safe surrounded by your own race.

    At the System Level; I agree that EM dollar debt repudiation leads to dollar creditor financial implosion. This results in total debt implosion. The Reset. The wildcards that make your $ faith dangerous is Russian strategic moves on the World’s Energy and War Maps. I fear these moves may collapse the System very quickly indeed.

In China, drug taking is not a crime; you are designated a victim. Of course, if the object doesn’t cooperate pertaining to follow on investigations, he may suffer a seizure of bank accounts and jail time, as he may be designated a professional criminal.

        I asked my girlfriend; she knows 5 people deported; her best friend knows 20. That’s just this summer. It’s a very efficient approach to getting rid of degenerates.

        Then you have increased stringency of visa approvals, e.g. notarised criminal backgroud checks, qualifications, fingerprinting of all foreigners, facial data, etc.

  32. I am getting the things done in kind of chaotic and a backward fashion but hey we are living in the era of distractions so I guess you all are OK with that 🙂

    So my story: I won’t say that I am coming from a capitalist family given that my family was living in a communist society until early 1990s. I hope you understand that being a capitalist in such environment wasn’t the easiest thing. However in my family there is a continuity and acceptance toward matters of familial value, i.e. just before the communist coup in my country my grand-grandfathers took some measures and were able to navigate across the first turbulent years of the new communist paradigm. Of course they lost their lands, farms and small manufacturing business to the party but were able to negotiate some small perks – no political persecuting of relatives and children who were educated in the West or were part of the Church clergy (we have a lot such relatives due to the fact that in the 1st part of 20th C my families were reproducing with a rate of 4-5-6-7 kids per couple and while the eldest son normally inherited the farmlands and infrastructures, the middle kids were almost always sent abroad to obtain degree in Laws or Medicine while the youngest were normally pushed toward the Church and its educational centers). After the initial decade my family members were courted by the party and invited in its hierarchy, most of the family rejected such offers and of course were persecuted but some of them accepted and managed to obtain mid-level positions (according to my mother those were discussed inside the family and a bar was set – none was to be elevated above medium rank). When the communists fall (this ‘fall’ by the way was arranged in a very shady meeting at the end of ’88 in Malta) all kind of crisis started rolling over – economic, financial, constitutional, political etc. All in all the last decade of the 20th C was very turbulent in the my country and the well connected psychopaths made a killing in terms of economic windfall.

    At the transition period at the end of 20th C my family managed to get back all lands and properties. during the last internal financial crisis (circa 1996-1997) the family tried to go capitalist and started business which by the way was very well going until circa 2000. at this pint there was yet another financial crisis in the country coupled with the consume of all political structures and institutions by the mafia and their handlers (by the way this period is very well documented by the then US ambassador in the country). pressured by those people my family liquidate its business and just invested the money in more tangibles – more land, more properties, some heavy tools and of course in kids’ educations. Given all that I will conclude that my family do not have vast amounts of liquid capital but has managed to build intra-family system of tangibles like good land plots, water resources, grazing meadows, some woods etc. they are renting big chunk of that but mostly to locals and for only symbolic sums. By cozening with the locals they have (in part also me) secured never ending stream of clear farm production as well as numerous families who are very very friendly to them.

    My story – since my early childhood I have been something like an out-lier in the family. Normally my family is full of like PhD holders, some professors, distinct military people, engineers and architects. But I was outshining most of them even in the pre-high school era. I visited a high-school with big emphasis on Math, IT, Biology and Chemistry. During those years I concluded that the world (or at least the parts of which are interconnected via BiS and CBs) is operating in a system and fashion very similar to those which governs an eco-system: at the end everything is down to the system energy inputs and outputs, but while in the nature all ecosystems tend to self-regulate and ‘burn’ all parts which are not energy-efficient thus is not the case with the world. After high school I get a degree in Human Medicine and for 4 years was part of one of the best Neurological Hospitals in the country (per national statistic also the best in my part of Europe). In the hospital I get involved in the all kind of projects re abstract neurological functions, you see at the end the ultimate puzzle for a physician is not the illness itself but the patient. During those years I understood that medicine related innovations, new therapies, new paradigms and new approaches are basically governed and allowed or forbidden by the so called Big Pharma, I am talking about vast, humongous capitals which are thrown at the physicians’ societies all over the world with only one goal – to obtain their consensus on whatever topics, and trust me the physicians are very willing to provide it. At the point when I realize that Big Health was as corrupt and deadly as Big Oil I decided to move ahead and go to the beast’s cave – I started to work for big pharma and currently I am occupying an associate director position and have seen a lot of the dirty dealings behind the scenes. Some of the shenanigans are so unbelievable and hideous that I needed like months to fully come to terms with what was happening.

  34. What’s the status of Eire? Still holding my dual-passport for EU-Eire and have family there. Have farmable land here in the USA with pure water and air and no history of GMO production nor pesticide. Eire? Will it be overrun by the Islamic Africans? Any courage there to say no to this madness? Certainly good movements afoot in Eire to go non-GMO. Can’t imagine China. Wife’s family is there and have the `history-problem’ due their heritage. Been there but would never wish to live there. Japan would be an awesome option excepting the Fukushima unspeakable problem there.

    1. Hello JJF,

      Eire, population, 5 million. There are:

      137,000 family farms with:
      7.2 million cattle
      5.1 million sheep
      1.6 million pigs
      11.1 million poultry
      4.1 million hectares of grasslands
      9,000 hectares of potato (BTW, before the Famine, an acre of potato fed a family for a year, 9,000 hectares ain’t enough in my opinion, need more.)
      280,000 hectares of cereal
      Substantial fish stocks, onshore and off-shore

      The new gas field off Galway is moderately sized and will help. Only 11% of Eire is forested. It’s cloudy 50% of the time and extremely humid with frequent rainfall (cows love the place).

      My cousins (Mother’s side of the family), actually, own the biggest Ag Corp in Eire, and have an office in Shanghai for exports.

      There has been a population increase, especially from Brazil and Latin America. (I don’t expect any Africans to make it as they’ll have no means of income and stores of wealth, and are minimal in numbers.) Asians won’t be touched, as they are fiscally prudent and not burdensome, and Irish will not want bad relations with the Chinese government.

      As you can imagine, most Irish people are part of farming family’s, especially in the countryside, so there’ll be no hunger, whatsoever. (Maybe there will be: it all depends on how the government performs.)

      Eire is 100% paid-in Emire asset, and the general population will find it difficult to navigate and understand what Brexit represents. I expect total calamity in the six counties and extreme poverty and want in Scotland. The Highlanders will be fine, the city-folk will die off.

      England will be a kill-box.

      This will shock the Irish population, and I’m uncertain how they’ll deal with it, but once they realize it’s a WW2 type scenario; the island will be closed off to the rest of the world (just like WW2)

      I was just reading ZH readership discussing South Africa and gun confiscations.

      What these guys don’t get is that the Reset is shaping Humanity and will change everything. The Russians are now pushing for the Reset to happen asap, it’s already hitting SA, and if it goes global, I don’t see the SA government surviving a week. I sincerely doubt the blacks will attack well armed white farmers; they’ll simply kill each other off like in Rwanda.

      Without government; I expect 80% depopulation of South Africa.

      I agree with the Russians, they want it asap: if it happens now we’ll still have some oil left to power the transition. The Empire has no strategy because it’s completely fucking corrupt and run by scumbags, if we wait till 2020/21 I don’t think the Reset will work due to sudden energy shortages.

      I’d like to see the shit hitting the fan before year end ($ defaults), and 2019 to be all out pain.

      1. Thank you for your learned reply.

        A couple of questions:
        “Eire is 100% paid-in Emire asset, and the general population will find it difficult to navigate and understand what Brexit represents. I expect total calamity in the six counties and extreme poverty and want in Scotland.”

        What is an `Emire asset’? What will trigger the calamity, in your opinion?

        Is your family business the Kerry Group? Relatives have been involved in selling their commodities to them over time. My remaining cousin doing farming is relocated to Germany and perhaps will not carry on the tradition. They were in a beautiful spot out on the Dingle Peninsula. But, IF solar changes occur, their climate would not be my first choice. 🙂

        Have you been made aware of the Grand Solar Minimum issues? A very learned piece I recently discovered goes into very good detail on upcoming solar cycle predictions models. You may find it as a PDF here:

        The whole balance of consciousness and society must be affected by the sun, and perhaps what we are witnessing is in part the unconsciousness knowing that deep chaos due to decrease food output is coming.

        Curious, as always. Hope for the best, plan for the worst.

        1. I must apologise, that was a typo:

          `Emire’ = Empire.

          “Eire is 100% paid-in Empire asset, and the general population will find it difficult to navigate and understand what Brexit represents.”

          In 2008, when Lord Blankfiend moved his Debtstar to Dublin, he convinced the Finance Minister to use the state to save the financial systems. Actually, the finance minister was a total retard, and agreed to the bail out; but for all the wrong reasons. The Retard actually believed it was a cheap solution.

          If the Irish State hadn’t absorbed those losses; the whole Euro system would have collapsed soon afterwards; and by agreeing with the Bankers he threw Eire’s fate in with theirs. Eire’s financial systems have been protected by the Empire ever since.

          And important US Corps moved their Eurasian HQs to Eire.

          Interestingly, I’m not aware of a single crime committed against a Jew in Irish history, and with the outbreak of war in 1939 many educated Jews chartered planes from London to Dublin, and stayed and worked for the Irish state as dentists and physicians.

          I expect similar things to happen this time.

          1. Interesting. So part of your thesis is that safe harbor for the ruling elites will always be necessary. In Europe, I can see Eire and Switzerland playing their roles in this. Also interesting is your idea of safe haven under the umbrella of the Catholic Church, mentioned in your commentary on Costa Rica. While being raised Catholic, I drifted away early. I do love the beauty and some of the rituals. If there was massive transformation within the current hierarchy, perhaps I’d revisit it. As one gets older, ritual becomes more important.

    Have not seen any like her, but looks like she would be good to have here on the farm.
    If anyone is going to take Your advice and get out of USA or U.K. And think they might want to come to Costa Rica, we might could help each other. I have been coming here for 30 years, living here for twelve, and have a couple of hundred acres that could be built into a community compound with the idea of being self sufficient- food wise. It is gorgeous here, it can get hot during the day and the sun is strong, but you can live year round without heat or air conditioning.
    Fresh water is abundant.
    If there is anyone reading with a Pioneer spirit and loves nature, I think you would be very pleased with what is here. If you are hard working, intelligent,respectful, sincere and a
    creative problem solver, I think you would be very welcome here!
    I am not trying to sell lots or land, I am wanting to build a self sufficient community,
    I’ll make most any kind of deal ( within reason) to get some energetic like minded people here.
    This is an Opportunity!
    I hope someone reading with take advantage of it!

      1. Pura,

        Is Costa Rica populated by white people? Yes, it is.

        Is it able to feed its own people? Yes, it is.

        Don’t worry about supply disruptions of gasoline so much; if you have a government the unemployed will be sent to work the fields and bring in the produce: Tools will be replaced by human tools.

        It’s mostly Catholic, correct? The Church and top families will probably declare martial law straight away. During martial law, the military will gun down anyone misbehaving; though the Irish Constitution forbids capital punishment during martial law. What Religion will have the power? Christian Catholicism/Fascism. So go to church and get to know your local parish priest, join the local parish council. Let them know, visually, that you’re willing to help out poorer parishioners.

        If you’re not inside the dominant Religion, you’re fucking dead, or dangerously isolated. Wealth doesn’t matter so much; Religion does. In South Africa, the Religion taking hold of power is Tribalism. So the different tribes are going to butcher each other.

        Where the Reset will be devastating will be in big multi-racial-ethnic nations, with food issues; and weak government.

        Looking at Costa Rican trading economy; it exports lots of food produce and imports very little food, so I wouldn’t worry too much. I think it’s a good bet going forward:

        1. That’s an interesting reflexion, Mr. Putrid. However, I would like to point out that Costa Rica is one of the few countries out there that doesn’t have an army. It has, of course, a Police force. Some of the divissions of this Police force are well equipped and can be considered to be of military nature (snipers, assault riffles, machine guns, a few armored trucks). It seems that they can form a consistent militia with 10,000 reservists (plus regular forces), but this issue shouldn’t be overlooked.

      2. Pura Vida,

        That sounds very reasonable to me.

        I’m certainly not a snowflake and very fit and healthy however; a few moths back I went to see a very small island in Ontario in a somewhat remote area and in a matter of 10 minutes, the 2 people that went there with me to show me the place, had a half dozen ticks on them. I was lucky and only had 1 on me. Such a short stay in the place with these many ticks made me question the decision to settle there.

        As far as Lyme disease, I know 2 close friends that were victims of such faith (they used to love nature and camping) and it took them years of treatment (and still not 10% well) and several expensive trips to a clinic in Washington state to get better (the Canadian health system does not recognize this disease nor treats it, which is quite dumb, because its fairly spread and common around here nowadays). of course you’ll never hear this on TV.

        I read somewhere that ticks were genetically modified by the US (who else) to weaken enemy troops in Vietnam and sadly, they are everywhere around here now. Of course with a harsh winter weather, many natural resources and so close to the US, I doubt this will be a peaceful area in the future and don’t feel is a good place to deal with the upcoming chaos.

        Full disclosure: At first, I found Cathal’s writings arrogant and condescending. After some reflection (and reading the books) I came to the conclusion that it was my ego getting in the way of accepting factual information and I’ve changed since. I come here often to read what others say. I agree with most things written and disagree with others i.e. Mr. Smith thinking an American will ever be accepted as a local in the Philippines, etc. I spent time there and know the place. Every time I hear someone pushing the Patriot crap (instead of the tax farms we really are), I realize how successful the bankers/brotherhood of Babylon have been brainwashing people and personally, I want to stay as far away as possible from such individuals. To each his own and I wish him well.

        Is there a way we can take this conversation offline? I rather not deal with righteous GI Joes here.

        Thanks

          1. You don’t need to wait for the news: the Russians told NATO/EU that they’re going to sort out the Ukraine with the Russian Defense Forces; if they want to fight, then let’s fight.

            I’m not fully understanding the Families here: either they have a different timeline to the Russians; or want a limited war to justify locking down their dumb fuck Libtard/Retard/Trumptard populations.

            I’m guessing it’s both. For me, the best chance of a successful Reset is after Brexit pens in the limey long-pig.
