Based on the last post, which was a reblog from a great writer and a great piece, I started thinking of what was probable or even imminent if the energy issues are true and even mostly accurate. Even if the developed world came to their senses, the under developed world is just coming online, more populous, precariously cultured and most importantly, the last untapped consumers left. Western business will covet at all costs. China and India are the supreme ecommerce (future of all growth business) markets and have the most unreached consumers. Anybody selling anything in mass needs China and India’s consumers. As a percentage (here comes the math), will these future dominating, tech reliant cultures eat more oil than we have factored?
Secondly, oil can’t go beyond a certain price because it would stop the global economy right? It wouldn’t be about a tank of gas to get to work, it would be about planes, semi trucks-all infrastructure in any country. If fossil fuel was like filet mignon, simply priced for only those who could afford it then those who can’t afford it would steal it. Pretending for a moment that the United States could not afford it, they (we) would definitely steal it.
Finally, who has the biggest guns? My simple mind would answer, anyone with a weaponized nuke. So, won’t those nations get access to the oil hose as a first priority if for no other reason, to prevent a detonation? If so, the rest of the world fades so fast into unimaginable suck that instability will (ok might) creep from a non nuke government to a regime with big flash. Now there are too many people again for the fossil fuel levels of the prior population and… well, again, math.
Prep news today filled with economic doom. So easy for us to predict and criticize the sheeple, but few of the columnists can address leadership of the masses in these last days. I love the constant reminder that those who are unable or unwilling to prepare financially are somehow more ignorant than us. A couple of thoughts for the arrogant:
- There are tens of millions of Americans who cannot financially prepare for a collapse.
- There are tens of millions more who could but choose not to.
- This population of sheep drive the debt narrative and will until someone actually blinks.
- That blink is likely 5-7 years out unless China’s house of cards falls first. (it might)
- The fake math can realistically endure for quite a while. The deficit is irrelevant as a solve issue.
- Consider that when the puppeteers run out of speculation and the first card falls, all you folk who think your financial product or buried colloidal silver will secure you or even help you are gravely mistaken.
The government has never been the problem, people are. The government is a symptom of mankinds progressive disease.
Take a break from the counter-speculation and buy ammo.
Cuba is not about tourism or improved relations, it’s about cold, calculated Russia strategy. The courtship will be very fast if it doesn’t work, falling out of the news cycle like Ferguson did. If it sticks, you will see massive infrastructure infusions in Cuba paid for by the USA. Nothing more than well planned, anti Russian tribe building at a time when Putin is asking his people for two years to get back on track with the currency. This is an indicator of major geo decline coming. If Russia wins the back channel chatter, OPEC will rise again.
