If you want to understand modern CBDC, it may be worth considering the context of history, the philosophy of man, the math of debt and the geology of gold.
Broke Countries Do Bad Things
When broken, debt-soaked “developed economies” suffering from years of fantasy money printing to “solve” fatally rising debt levels collide with history-blind and economically-ignorant policy makers, the end result is always the same: liberty sinks, currencies die and control rises.
This is not sensationalism, but the toxic evolution of economic, political and psychological patterns seen throughout time.
Sadly, our “times” (as well as the global abundance/convergence of weak leadership) are no exception.
Or stated more simply, inept financial and political leadership leads to even more dangerous financial opportunists and tyrannical policies masquerading as efficient solutions.
Toward this end, the evidence is literally everywhere—left, right and center.
The Inevitable Klaus Schwab-Type
Nowhere is such will-to-power opportunism and fantasy (i.e., centralized) solutions more exemplified than in the so-called “Great Reset” authored by the head of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab.
Like all opportunists and historical as well as current “types,” Schwab (like the IMF, the BIS, the Fed, the White House, the European or British Parliament, etc.) is exploiting a crisis to enhance control while appearing humanitarian and visionary. We’ve seen this demagogue movie before in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Yugoslavia, Cuba, China, Russia etc. In each example (from the 1780s to the 1960s to now), leaders who promised miracle solutions to financial disaster brought only centralization and disorder while erecting statues (or book deals and Parisian shopping sprees) to themselves.
Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste
Post-Covid, it is now patently obvious to anyone who has taken the time to look unemotionally at the science, math and data (including courageous British journalists like Matt Ridely, well-spoken celebrities like Russell Brand, dark horses like Bret Weinstein or the non-political [and hence more honest] scientists convening at Great Barrington) that COVID most likely came from a lab and that the policy reaction of a global shutdown and forced vaccine was a moral, scientific, economic and political disaster for the record books.
Despite the fact that history has seen (and stoically survived) far greater per-capita death tolls in the form of cholera, the bubonic plague, small pox, or influenza, our policy makers, with the embarrassingly complicit support of a Pravda-like and politically-influenced main stream media, would have us believe they care so much about you and me. So, they locked us down, went trillions more into debt (and a hidden, second market bailout) for our sake.
In fact, the IMF in 2020 compared the war on Covid to the Second World War and its 85 million deaths.
