Hello, readers. This is an experiment. I’ve never done this before on here. Below is a link to a very unusual piece. The Facebook censors have banned the site it appears on as violating their “community standards,” so I cannot link directly to it there, only here.
As for the piece itself — “The World Through the Eyes of a Globalist” — that, too, is an experiment, one of those ideas I just woke up with one morning and ran with, as much to find out what it did once it took on a life of its own (as such pieces sometimes do).
It may frighten you. You may wish to quarrel with it. Or dismiss it, claiming too much of it is unsourced or unreferenced. That is your privilege.
But if you often feel like you’ve entered a real world Twilight Zone, in 2020, you just might like this. You might find it eye-opening.
What, precisely, is a “globalist”? No spoilers. If you’re unsure, you’ll just have to click the link.
What the piece does is make some predictions you might find it worth your while to take a look at and consider carefully … so should you decide the threat is serious, you can begin taking appropriate actions to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your assets.
While I never set out to be a prophet, my track record isn’t all that bad. I was one of the people saying during the first half of 2008 that we were in trouble, that we were heading for the worst economy since the Great Depression. I received some strange looks. But not after October of that year. But that’s not the prediction I stand by.
As I’ve often said, I predicted back in the early 1990s that if political correctness, then limited pretty much to universities and a few elite opinion centers, wasn’t opposed, it would expand its reach until it dominated every institution in the country, and you dare not oppose its claims about such things as “systemic racism” if you want to keep your job.
Now, as Paul Craig Roberts just put it, America is being cancelled. Identity Politics controls academia, and because most who tried to warn about it have retired or vacated the premises, it is only going to get worse.
Some might wonder, Does this have something to do with philosophy?
That would be a Yes.
The dominant culture has basically canceled truth. That ought to be of philosophical interest! What does it mean, after all, to “cancel truth”? Well, we don’t mean that truth is literally canceled. It’s still there, whether persons or cultures acknowledge it or not. You can’t simply wish it away. But institutions both can and do suppress statements of it, like never before … on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, anyway.
As Roberts also observes in that same column, we are not allowed to cite the report showing that George Floyd did not die because of Derek Chauvin’s knee on his neck (even I fell for that one, in a piece not yet published). The evidence does not support a charge of murder any more than it supports the claim, however politically correct, that Floyd died because of his race at the hands of a white man.
That has not stopped the entire mass culture from placing Floyd on a pedestal to “systemic racism” and basically intimidating authorities into allowing the mass destruction of historical monuments. It has not stopped the mass destruction by looters of a lot of small businesses that managed to survive the COVID-19 lockdowns … based on something with a mortality rate of probably less than 1 percent outside of vulnerable populations.
We now live in a truth-free civilization. You cannot tell the truth, lest it offend or “microaggress” against someone. In universities, you take your career in your hands just by offering up the biological basis for saying there are two and only two sexes. Ask Bret Weinstein.
The sad thing is, none of these people have no idea who they might actually be working for. Those V.I.. Lenin once called useful idiots never do.
And who might they be working for?
Maybe this piece puts its finger on the truth. Maybe it’s just dystopian science fiction. Existing within that ambiguity, I’d say it is very much in tune with our times … now that we’ve all entered a real world Twilight Zone.
So here it is: The World Through the Eyes of a Globalist.
