Burning Down The House


“The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule. If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and effort – in other words, a total war. Every Fourth Turning has registered an upward ratchet in the technology of destruction, and in mankind’s willingness to use it.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning

Let’s put this over-hyped manufactured panic in perspective:
    • .0300% of the worldwide population has contracted the virus
    • .0020% of the worldwide population has died from the virus
    • .2250% of the U.S. population has contracted the virus
    • .0120% of the U.S. population has died from the virus
The current death rate projection in the U.S. is in the range of 65,000. In 2018 it was reported by the CDC that 82,000 Americans died from the flu. Now that their scary models have proven to be worthless, the medical “experts” are now trying to boost the death figures with no proof people died from the China flu.

The death rate from this nasty virus is only marginally higher than the yearly flu. But the fear mongering has served the purposes of bankers, politicians, and corporate CEOs. The real catastrophe has been set in motion by the actions of the ruling class. Wall Street, once again, has used this contrived crisis to pillage and screw over Main Street.

There is no avoiding what is headed our way. The mini-toilet paper panic of March will turn into a full-fledged-riots in the street panic when the Fed’s desperate financial flailings destroy our diseased financial organism and the food shelves in your local Piggly Wiggly are bare. Injecting adrenaline into the veins of a patient on a respirator as their vital organs are shutting down is a treatment guaranteed to fail.

There are now dozens of anecdotal scientific studies, plus the actual results from the non-locked down Sweden, proving the mortality rate is far lower than propagandized by the establishment media and proving quarantining a country has been a disastrous solution.
Of course, it has only been a disastrous solution for you, me, and the tens of millions of other formerly working Americans trying to live our lives, raise families and navigate our way through this bastardized and financialized former republic. 

It’s true history may not repeat, but it most certainly rhymes. FDR’s famous line during his first inaugural address in 1933 – “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself” – has been substituted in 2020 with “we need to fear an invisible virus that is not materially more lethal than the annual flu”.

Decades of government control over every aspect of our lives, which began under FDR during the last Fourth Turning, have weakened our ability as a nation to confront challenges with strength, fortitude and common sense. We are a nation controlled by propaganda – appealing to our emotions and feelings. They have infantilized a vast swath of the population through government school indoctrination and decades of propaganda. Panic and fear are the primary tools used by our modern-day feudal overlords to maintain their wealth, power and control.

FDR used fear to inflict his New Deal upon the American people, prolonging the Great Depression, and putting us on a path towards total dependency upon government bureaucrats and corporate interests that control them. This contrived crisis is being used as a cover for a financial collapse already in progress since the middle of 2019.

Anyone who honestly assessed what the criminally insane central bank saviors of crony capitalism had done from 2009 through 2019 knew their schemes were solely meant to benefit their Wall Street benefactors and the parasites in government and business who profited from promoting the benefits of this engine of plunder. The Fed and their corrupt cronies, as Ludwig von Mises stated many decades ago, had done nothing but delay the inevitable catastrophe which must occur after a Wall Street created orgy of debt financed consumption.

The world has been led into a global shutdown by inept, intellectual yet idiot leaders who are either incapable of critical thinking or are on the take from the globalists using this faux crisis to enact their long-term goal of one world control. 

How come government workers aren’t being furloughed along with the tens of millions of non-government workers?

But these power-hungry authoritarians can’t admit they are wrong, so businesses and medical facilities remain shut, destroying the lives of millions. The deaths of 40,000, 60,000 or 80,000 Americans from this virus is a human tragedy. As are the other 2.8 million deaths which happen every year. Their families will rightfully grieve for their souls. Death is a sad part of life which will eventually impact every one of us.

But how many local news stations did 5 stories per night about the 82,000 Americans who died from the flu in 2018? Where were the concerts for them? Did we shut down any businesses to stop the spread of the flu? Did we quarantine ourselves and wear masks? That would have certainly reduced the 82,000 deaths. Why now? Why for this virus? I’ll tell you why. To serve the purposes of those in control of the political, financial and banking systems.

Whether you call them the invisible government (per Edward Bernays), ruling oligarchs, Deep State, or corporate fascist elite, they are using this man made crisis to try and implement a mandatory digital currency, electronic monitoring and tracking of all citizens, imposition of restrictions on speech, assembly, and owning firearms, while eliminating competition from small businesses and permanently impoverishing the masses – enslaving them in Wall Street peddled debt. They increase their already vast wealth to immeasurable heights, while millions of blameless Americans are forced to live under overpasses.

We are plunging towards our rendezvous with destiny. 
The powers that be will shortly be in the cover-up phase of this overblown fake emergency. What they have done to fend off a nasty virus is preposterous and asinine. It’s like burning down a building occupied by 200 people to possibly save 1 person. And there is no proof burning down the building actually prevented the 1 person from dying.
Precautions taken by individuals with the highest risk, specifically protecting those in nursing homes, and allowing businesses to enact reasonable safety measures for their employees and customers, while the general population developed a herd immunity to this virus, would have resulted in a similar mortality outcome without creating a 2nd Great Depression. Sweden has proved this was the rational course of action.

 No government solutions, implemented with sledgehammers by authoritarian governors as we are experiencing today, should have been employed. The government at all levels acts as a hammer, and we are all nails to these power hungry drones.

So here we are, still locked down by our government overlords, in the midst of a man made Great Depression, being propagandized by the media to cheer our own imprisonment, losing jobs at a rate of 5 to 6 million per week, and encouraged to report fellow citizens for not obeying the dictates of our rulers. Hey, but at least the NASDAQ is green for the year. So, we’ve got that.
Millions of Americans are extremely angry. Millions of Americans are well armed. They see once again Wall Street and corporate America have been bailed out and they’ve been screwed over. There are inklings of protest and defiance breaking out across the country. 
This will grow larger and angrier the longer this lockdown continues. When people lose everything they had and everything they dreamed of having, they will turn nasty. And that’s when this Fourth Turning gets interesting.
It’s no longer a decade in the future. It will happen sooner than linear thinking prognosticators believe. All is not well on Main Street, so those beholden to Wall Street should be worried. We are at the precipice of deciding in which direction this country shall proceed – towards an authoritarian centrally controlled surveillance state or back towards a republic where individual rights and liberties are honored and respected. Do we bow down as slaves or stand up for freedom?  The choice is ours.
