What's causing the supply-chain bottlenecks?

My issue is it was not an “organic” obsession but an agenda people like Gates and more powerful than him controlled and deployed. This is what I would like to know more about.

The demographic decline is another factor in terms of labor. Chinese has been shrinking and that will not stop. They already peaked. Russia as well, well with its current borders. The industrialized world is seeing the largest generation in human history not only retire but stop consuming much beyond food and medical services. Peter Zeihan covers this stuff a lot.

I’ve read his first two books and am half way through his third. I’ve got his most recent book on my coffee table right now.

The stuff he wrote about eight years ago is unfolding right in front of us. And Covid just sped everything up.

I highly recommend every forum member get his books. Stay skeptical, come to your own conclusions, but everything he says makes SO MUCH SENSE.

Has he ever been on Joe Rogan? I think he would melt Joe’s pot addled brain.

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”
Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild

The Federal Reserve and other central banks exercise considerable control over our economies via interest rates, debt creation, QE and more. They create massive profits for the financial industry that in turn purchases many politicians and Presidents.

Now expand the concept into other areas and see if the results ring true.

  • Give me control of a nation’s financial systems and I shall own the politicians who make the laws.

Print currencies and buy politicians. Same idea – it is easy!

  • Give me control of the FBI investigators and I can avoid prosecution and indictments.

(Hmmmm. There was something in the news about this recently…)

  • Give me control of the voting machines and I care not who the voters in the popular election actually wanted.

In Philadelphia in 2012, 59 districts cast 100.0% of their votes for Obama and the voting machines show that not one person cast their vote for Romney. Strange. Amazing. Unusual. It might happen once in the age of the universe, or again this November in Philadelphia. Still, a vote of 19,605 to zero in 59 districts is difficult to believe, even in strongly democratic districts in urban America.

  • Give me control of the DNC and I care not who the primary voters chose.

(Hmmmm. Ask Bernie Sanders if he agrees.)

  • Give me control of the media and I will tell the people of the world what I want them to know, but not necessarily the facts.
    • There is ample evidence that the media has an agenda and promotes certain ideas, regardless of facts. Examples include, “the economy is fine,” “that Presidential candidate is … fill in your favorite accusation,” “unemployment is less than 5% in the US,” “Social Security benefits are guaranteed and the system is solid,” “weapons of mass destruction,” and so many more.
    • Further, the media can control what is NOT reported as news.
  • Give me control of the statistics and I can assure the public that unemployment is either high or low, GDP is weak or strong, violent crime is getting better or worse, drug abuse is mild or extreme, illegal aliens are sneaking into the country or leaving, gang violence is becoming worse or better, or whatever is needed …

Lies, damned lies and statistics!

  • Give me control of the Fort Knox gold and Americans can rest assured that no gold will be reported missing and there is no need for an audit.

This is self-explanatory and consistent with observations over the past six decades.

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”

Woodrow Wilson

He would melt Rogan’s brain in about five minutes.

I just started “The End of the World…” yesterday.

If I were to only read one of his older books to gain insight into the current and future world which one would you recommend?
