National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM) Manifesto


INTRODUCTION

IT may sound hard to believe, but there was a time when ordinary people had more control over their own lives and inhabited a world in which the vast majority of individuals were able to live in close-knit communities with their own kind, pursue a more rural existence away from the shallow environs of the average shopping mall, hunt or grow food for their own consumption, make conversation and music in a society without television or computer games, and even pass on traditional values to their own children without the pernicious influence of Establishment schools and the mass media. So what went wrong?

Between 500 and 850 CE, not long after the despised Roman occupation of Britain came to an abrupt end, the incoming Germanic tribes settled down and gradually began to add their own flavour to the island. Before long, it became comparatively decentralised and was eventually broken up into seven distinct kingdoms. Things were far from perfect, of course, but as a result of this crucial balance of power the Angle, Saxon and Jutish tribes were able to enjoy a large degree of self-determination. When the Normans arrived in 1066, however, the newly-created English nation was transformed into a land of serfs and, as the Domesday Book proves beyond any doubt, ruthlessly exploited for its valuable resources and things were never to be the same again.

By the time the Middle Ages came along, imperialistic adventurers like Edward I and other monarchical warmongers across Europe were borrowing huge amounts of money from Jewish financiers and plunging the country into mounting debt. But whilst Edward himself found a convenient excuse to deport these usurious individuals from England's shores, thus saving himself from almost certain bankruptcy, by the sixteenth century events were changing dramatically as the Protestant Reformation swept away the existing socio-economic infrastructure and inevitably caused thousands of people to be expelled from the monastic hospitals, religious almshouses and other places of refuge which, at that time, were maintained by the Catholic Church. According to the radical social commentator, William Cobbett, prior to the Reformation the word 'poverty' had not entered the English language.

Along with the great religious changes of the sixteenth century, came the artistic flowering of the Renaissance and the less positive values of the humanist Enlightenment. Whilst Christianity had served as the prevailing current in England for many hundreds of years, the new ideas sweeping into England from the rest of Europe now positioned man firmly at the centre of the universe and therefore it was inevitable that spirituality – let alone Christianity – would rapidly decline and be replaced by the materialistic values of a new mercantile order. These profound changes, which led, in England, to the seventeenth-century Civil War and the triumph of Cromwell's parliamentarians over the monarchy of Charles I, soon paved the way for the French Revolution.

In 1789, the French monarchy came under attack from a resentful bourgeoisie and Louis XVI fell victim, like many others, to the diligent blade of the guillotine. Once the pseudo-revolutionaries of the late-eighteenth century came to power, the lives of ordinary French people soon worsened and the transient values of the brutal regime were shown to be entirely false. Indeed, following the inauguration of a new ruling class the organic ties of the past were completely extinguished as racial, cultural and spiritual bonds were considered obsolete and thoroughly discouraged. This, of course, was the first step towards the globalisation process of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries and the ideas of the French Revolution went on to lead to the growth of many destructive ideologies such as nationalism, communism and liberal-democracy.

Meanwhile, back in the British Isles, an explosion of scientific technology allowed a combination of aristocrats and nouveau-riches to harness the indomitable force that led to the Industrial Revolution. This resulted in the displacement of the country's rural communities, as millions of people left the land and moved to the expanding cities to work in the soulless mills and factories. This strategy of mass enslavement saw people forced down mines and up chimneys to make profits for the fat-cats at the helm. By the first quarter of the nineteenth century, the gap between rich and poor had widened considerably and, if you found yourself at the wrong end of the class spectrum, you inevitably ended up in the workhouse. The capitalist disease had spread across Britain, and the world, like a cancer.

Throughout this period, wealthy banking families like the Rothschilds and others were able to seize control of the purse-strings of various European countries, as well as to foment wars and revolutions for their own ends. Various protest movements attempted to fight for justice and better conditions, but in 1917 the communists took power in Moscow and were hailed as a powerful 'alternative' to capitalism, despite going on to murder and repress hundreds of millions of people in both Russia, Eastern Europe and the Far East. The reality, of course, is that whilst capitalism exploited ordinary people for private gain, communism was simply a form of state-capitalism administered by a new ruling class. To make matters worse, communism provided the capitalists, as well as the national-capitalists of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, with a new impetus and thus smoothed the way for the victory of liberal-democracy and the economic trading bloc known as the West. The rest, as they say, is history.

What you are about to read is designed to give you a taste of what life could be like in decentralised, National-Anarchist communities. Bear in mind, however, that this is only a very brief outline and that we have provided a series of reading lists to help you explore the various topics in more depth. Our job is to offer you a vision of a brighter future. If you like what you see, you can help us make that future a reality.

ANTI-ZIONISM

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face: forever. – George Orwell

ALTHOUGH people around the world are quite aware of the disproportionate influence of Jewish pressure groups within the various governmental and mass media appendages of Europe and North America, most of which are completely under their control, few are prepared to come out and say so for fear of persecution or incurring the usual threats of 'anti-Semitism'. It is a fact, however, that ever since ambitious European monarchs first plunged us into the financial vortex of the burgeoning international debt system, an elite coterie of Jews and their allies have effectively manipulated world events for their own interests. This was achieved, not simply through usury, but also as a result of Jewish involvement in the bootlegging and criminal racketeering of 1930s America, something which eventually went on to finance the Zionist takeover of the Hollywood film industry and, by 1948, brought about the establishment of the bandit-state of Israel. But Zionism is not Jewish nationalism, as some like to claim, it is Jewish imperialism.

National-Anarchists do not 'hate' ordinary Jews and neither do we wish to undermine them as a people with their own unique religious and cultural identity, but what we will not tolerate, however, is the ongoing enslavement of our people by a minority of vampiric parasites intent on carving up the world's resources in an attempt to create a single, global market. We believe that the way to combat Zionism is to continue to expose the hypocrisy of those who, on the one hand, use the Nazi 'holocaust' to evoke sympathy, and, on the other, brutally repress the long-suffering Palestinians in their own land. Over 90% of modern Jews are descended from a semi-Turkic people who, faced with the sectarian intolerance of their encroaching Christian Orthodox and Muslim neighbours, converted to Judaism en masse when they were part of the old Khazar empire that spanned the area between the Black and Caspian seas during the eighth century. Indeed, they have no authentic racial or territorial connection with the Middle East at all. National-Anarchists support the Palestinian intifada, as well as Jewish groups like Neturai Karta and various other opponents of Zionism who are seeking to expose the multifarious lies and distortions perpetuated by the Israeli regime, as well as its intelligence wing, Mossad, and the organisational nerve centre which continues to operate at the very heart of the United States Government. Zionism is an enemy of all peoples and must be vanquished.

ANARCHISM

The liberty of man consists solely in this: that he obeys natural laws because he has himself recognized them as such, and not because they have been externally imposed upon him by any extrinsic will whatever, divine or human, collective or individual. – Mikhail Bakunin

I must create a system or be enslaved by another man's. I will not reason and compare: my business is to create. – William Blake

Society seeks order in Anarchy. – Pierre Joseph Proudhon

IN the eyes of many people, the word 'Anarchism' conjures up lurid images of a scowling Johnny Rotten waxing lyrical about unleashing chaos and destruction upon contemporary society. Anarchists are supposed to be anything from long-haired nihilists and hedonistic drug fiends to happy-clappy utopians completely out of touch with the real world. The nineteenth-century representation of the average Anarchist, at least according to those who set out to lampoon or vilify it in the controlled media, was that of a stereotypical madman, invariably bearded or bedraggled, clutching a bomb or stick of explosive. But real Anarchism has nothing to do with decay and degeneration, or with mindless violence and terror, it can actually provide a real and tangible alternative to the ongoing decline of Western civilisation.

Anarchy originates from the Greek term an archos, means 'no rule' or 'without rule'. This should not imply, however, that Anarchists believe in disorder, because in this case the term 'rule' is associated with the manner in which a society is organised in accordance with a specific form of behaviour or conduct. So to suggest that a community should have 'no rule', therefore, does not mean that it should descend into utter chaos, because the rule itself relates to an appreciation of the natural order and refuses to acknowledge the constitutional, man-made laws or customs laid down by empires, states and other forms of administrative or governmental control. But this does not mean that Anarchist communities are incapable of adhering to a set of beliefs, values or principles, on the contrary, it simply means that natural order takes precedence at all times. Indeed, natural order is the most organic form of social organisation on the planet, because it allows man to live in the way that nature itself intended. Not as wild animals or in blind ignorance, because man finds himself in possession of a superior intelligence, but certainly as far as satisfying our most basic needs, instincts and desires are concerned. Laws and systems seek to enslave us, but within a more natural and conducive setting we can fulfil our true destinies and rediscover that long-forgotten bond with the environment.

Instead of labouring beneath a system in which 'rule' is forcibly imposed, National-Anarchists believe in natural authority. Hierarchy is a basic fact of nature, but something which is quite different to the artificial class system that can be found throughout contemporary Western societies. Leadership, for example, should be encouraged, but it also comes with responsibility and within an Anarchist or tribal context the chief or alpha male is only as strong as the community. In the words of Rudyard Kipling, 'the strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack'. Unlike the huge gulf between those who govern and those who are governed today, the two are inseparable and necessarily complimentary.

When Marx and Engels published their Communist Manifesto in 1848, the workers and peasants of Europe believed that they had at last found an answer to the greed and ruthlessness of capitalism. But Marx was advocating a crude form of totalitarianism which he called 'the dictatorship of the proletariat', something which merely led to the creation of a new ruling class and, thus, the perpetuation of mass wage-slavery. But the communists were not the only 'opponents' of capitalism, around the same time a Frenchman by the name of Pierre-Joseph Proudhon had launched an attack on both capitalism and communism, firmly believing that the latter undermined human individuality. Consequently, several Russian Anarchists, among them Mikhail Bakunin and Peter Kropotkin, also tried to expose the futility of Marxism and, instead, wrote of a future decentralised world of collectives in which people could have more autonomy and express their own identity. During the twentieth century, however, the ranks of Anarchism were infiltrated by communists and what began as a noble ideal characterised by a belief in freedom and identity degenerated into Left-wing bureaucracy and the kind of political correctness that we are so familiar with today. There is no question that the Left has dragged the proud banners of Anarchy through the mud and that Anarchism's image has been severely tainted as a result, but this is precisely why the world is now ready for a brand new ideal: National-Anarchism. But what distinguishes National-Anarchism from the wider Anarchist phenomenon and what does it have to offer?

Our vision, in a nutshell, is one of small village-communities in which people occupy their own space in which to live in accordance with their own principles. These principles depend on the nature of the people forming the community in the first place, because the last thing we wish to do is impose a rigid or dogmatic system of any kind. In theory, therefore, National-Anarchists can be Christian or pagan, farmers or artisans, heterosexual or homosexual. The important thing, however, is for National-Anarchist communities to be self-sufficient. They should also be mutualist, rather than coercive. In other words, people should be free to come and go at all times. If you are unhappy with the unifying principle of one National-Anarchist community, then simply relocate to another. On the other hand, communities must be respectful of their neighbours and be prepared to defend themselves from outsiders.

Finally, contrary to the increasingly desperate smears of our enemies on both the Right and Left of the political spectrum, we are not using Anarchism as a convenient tactic or to conceal a secret fascistic agenda of any kind – we are deadly serious. In addition, as mutualists we abide by the 'live and let live' philosophy. People are different and have different values. In modern, pluralistic societies, those values tend to conflict and it is inevitable that some values will override or perhaps even eradicate others. We think certain values are worth preserving for future generations and this is why we wish to create a climate in which this is possible. National-Anarchism, therefore, is Anarchism sui generis. An Anarchy of its own kind.

FAILURE OF THE LEFT

The only economic difference between a herd of subservient Russians and a mob of free Englishmen pouring into a factory of a morning is that the latter are exploited by private profit, the former by the State in communal fashion. The motive of the Russian masters is to establish a comfortable bureaucracy for themselves and their friends out of the proletariat labour. The motive of the English masters is to increase their private fortunes out of proletariat labour. But we want something different from either. – Hilaire Belloc

Karl Marx, who spent most of his life in the reading room of the British Museum Library, probably came as little into contact with nature as it was possible to do and still stay alive. The result was that his philosophy ignored everything not human absolutely completely. He was aware (just) that food came from the country. He was aware that there must be some people out there somewhere who grew it. It was his object to rescue these imaginary people from what he called 'the idiocy of rural life'. What is that to the idiocy of spending all your life in the British Museum Library? – John Seymour

THE theories of Karl Marx that had appeared in the mid-nineteenth century, eventually came to fruition during the 1917 Russian Revolution. Across the course of ninety of the most brutal and bloodied years in human history, the murderous communist experiment centred in East Europe and the Far East became just as hated and despised as its capitalistic twin in the West.

Modern Leftists allege that after the death of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin in 1924, their revolution was hijacked by Josef Stalin. However, it remains a fact that the ever-popular hero of the anti-Stalinist brigade, Leon Trotsky, had been funded by Wall Street financiers. The common ground, of course, was not ideology but ethnicity. Wealthy Jewish bankers in New York had few qualms about assisting their Bolshevik counterparts in Tsarist Russia, especially when it meant there was a chance of removing the Russian monarchy and creating new markets ripe for exploitation. The racial link between capitalism and communism is irrefutable. In 1918 the Bolshevik Party was controlled almost entirely by revolutionary activists of Jewish (Khazar) extraction. According to Robert Wilton, the Russian correspondent for the Times newspaper,

out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State, there were in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian, 10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Czech, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews. If the reader is astonished to find the Jewish hand everywhere in the affair of the assassination of the Russian Imperial Family, he must bear in mind the formidable numerical preponderance of Jews in the Soviet administration. [Les Derniers Jours des Romanof, Thornton Butterworth, 1920, p. 29].

Wilton's remarks are validated by Hilaire Belloc, who, in 1937, wrote that

As for anyone that does not know that the present revolutionary Bolshevist movement is Jewish in Russia, I can only say that he must be a man who is taken in by the suppressions of our deplorable press. [G.K.'s Weekly, February 4th, 1937].

Winston Churchill also noted the decidedly Jewish character of Bolshevism in the Illustrated Sunday Herald of February 8th, 1920, when he said:

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others." [Illustrated Sunday Herald, February 8th, 1920].

Despite the fact that early Anarchism had so much to offer those living beneath the heel of the old European monarchies and, consequently, the new capitalist class that emerged from the Reformation and Enlightenment, the growth of the Left soon led to Anarchism being completely infiltrated. The groups that direct the anti-capitalist 'movement' are usually led by Left-wing dogmatists and control-freaks who like to claim that National-Anarchists are trying to subvert Anarchism for their own ends. But this is false. As we have said elsewhere, time and time again, we are not 'racists' or 'white supremacists' with some kind of secret agenda, we have formulated a programme to combat the continuing degeneration of Western society and ensure that things like diversity, identity and cultural heritage survive the impending collapse.

Sadly, however, most people on the Left will not rest until they can organise every minute aspect of people's lives. It is a self-perpetuating disease. This is why Leftists talk of the 'right to work', when – as Bob Black rightly points out – the real problem is work itself. The Left, just like the totalitarian Right, refuses to tolerate anyone who tries to opt out of its vision of an all-inclusive society. Some of us, however, want no part of this and will only ever be 'socialists' among ourselves and with our own kind. In this respect, we are an elitist Movement holding firm to the notion of meritocracy. What we do not accept, however, is that everybody is 'equal'.

The issue of egalitarianism is one of the main stumbling blocks of the contemporary Left and stems from John Locke's ill-conceived theories about the tabula rasa. This is the ludicrous idea that humans enter the world as a 'blank slate' and soak up everything around them like a sponge. But we are not merely influenced by environmental factors or the impression made upon us by our immediate surroundings, we also inherit many genetic traits from our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. To some extent, then, we have already been shaped before we even leave the womb and that can have a big impact on the kind of people we eventually become. The socio-economic climate in which someone is born can have an impact on the way they develop, of course, but genetic factors far outweigh the environmental considerations and should not be ignored.

To suppose, therefore, that humans are somehow 'equal' is quite ridiculous. On the other hand, this does not mean that people who are less intelligent or physically handicapped should be treated with disdain or cruelty. Those who display a superior ability in certain areas have a responsibility to those who exhibit less. Humanity – like the rest of nature – is hierarchical and the Left's progressive fantasies about a world in which everyone acquires the same rank, inevitably manifests itself as a levelling process in which oppressive laws are used to drag the strong down to the level of the most weak and resentful. National-Anarchists believe in encouraging people to express their full potential, not in forcing them to sink to a common denominator.

Left-wing politics inevitably descend into barbarity and totalitarianism and this is why capitalism has been allowed to prosper to the extent that it has. Whenever the Left ascends to power, it simply administers capitalism in a slightly modified form; through the bureaucratic organs of the state. Left-wing strategy, however, has often been highly effective and there is no reason why tactics such as entryism, industrial sabotage, picket lines, fund-raising and community action should not be used by National-Anarchists. This is why we have also recommended several texts dealing with Derek Hatton's Militant and other organisations that have successfully infiltrated both local councils and the ranks of their opponents.

To conclude, National-Anarchists reject both state and private capitalism and wish to ensure that power begins at the grass roots and is channelled upwards. This vision is a long way from the dehumanisation of the Left-wing 'workers state', in which people are portrayed, not as individuals, but as economic units ripe for exploitation. Make no mistake, the Left does not offer an alternative of any kind and should be rejected.

THE COMMUNITY AGAINST THE STATE

There will be a qualitative transformation, a new living, life-giving revelation, a new heaven and a new earth, a young and mighty world in which all our present dissonances will be resolved into a harmonious whole. – Mikhail Bakunin

A good man and a good citizen are not exactly the same thing. – Augustine

WE don't have to rely on ministerial expense scandals, corruption in high places and lying politicians to convince us that parliamentary democracy is a sham; the system itself is rotten to the core.

In the past, the political process involved small groups of chieftains, warriors and holy men, each of whom would get together at regular intervals to discuss the needs and aspirations of their respective communities; particularly in relation to security and wellbeing. Politics has always been open to abuse, of course, but the Anglo-Saxon (Germanic) tradition of the Witenagemot – also known as the Witan – was one of the more decentralised examples of how our ancestors would exert a form of political authority that had been channelled up from the grassroots. Those involved felt a sense of duty and responsibility to their people, quite unlike the politicians of today with their noses firmly stuck in the trough.

The Witenagemot began as a distinctly tribal phenomenon and even the meeting place for these folk gatherings were pretty indeterminate and sporadic. Unfortunately, however, in the wake of the Norman invasion of England in 1066 the Witenagemot was transformed into the more elitist Curia Regis, which served as an advisory body to the monarchy and soon became the first parliament. This subtle change made it very convenient for the Norman establishment to centralise power in the hands of an ever-diminishing number of people. After the English Civil War of the seventeenth century, the power of the monarchy was curtailed and parliament became more powerful. But rather than make it easier for ordinary people to express their opinions on the issues of the day, it became a tool for the landowners and the ruling classes.

The main problem with parliamentary democracy is the fact that it is representative. Indeed, whilst it is possible for people to vote for a political party and elect a politician from their immediate locality, that individual cannot be recalled or replaced for several years – depending on the country concerned and the parliamentary system in question. However, as we know only too well, politicians are not very good at keeping their promises and tend to get elected and then make a series of treacherous U-turns. So whilst a politician claims to represent your interests he or she actually represents the interests of a party. The term 'party' relates to a part of the whole, so despite a Member of Parliament supposedly representing people residing within a specific area, only a mere section of the community – i.e. those who voted for the MP in the first place – is able to have its wishes expressed. And that's without taking into account that a minority of people even bother to vote in the first place, let alone the fact that politicians rarely bother to fulfil their promises!

Instead of representative democracy, through which politicians serve their own interests at the expense of the community on behalf of the state, National-Anarchists believe in participation. In other words, instead of voting for politicians every few years and then allowing them to go on and act precisely as they wish, we believe that people should take an active role in politics themselves. Not on a national scale, but within their own localities. Instead of politicians, National-Anarchists favour delegates, people who must either reflect the wishes of the people or be replaced immediately. This process would safeguard against corruption and unaccountability and make sure that people had a real say in the running of their own areas. This will mark a return, if you like, to the old Witenagemot system. And whilst National-Anarchists do not believe in applying centralised 'rule' we do accept that the actual form of decision-making is something that will be particular to each community. And community is the key word.

The fact that people have put so much power in the hands of the state has meant that the traditions and values of our communities are becoming eroded at an alarming rate. National laws and constitutions are a relatively modern phenomenon and to suppose that humans are incapable of organising themselves into close-knit communities is to hand over total responsibility to the state. Think about it, do you really wish to leave things to the businessmen, the politicians, the councillors, the judges, the bailiffs, the tax collectors, the landlords, the soldiers, the police and the teachers, or would you prefer to see power, wealth and arms restored to the community where it belongs? The less we depend on the state and its institutions, the more irrelevant it will become. Once that happens, of course, it will become superfluous to requirements and will be swept aside. We fight, therefore, for the community against the state.

RACIAL SEPARATISM OR MIXED TRIBES

The struggle of our time is to concentrate, not to dissipate; to renew our association with traditional wisdom; to re-establish a vital connection between the individual and the race. It is, in a word, a struggle against liberalism. – T. S. Eliot

AS far as the Left is concerned, National-Anarchism is simply a form of generic fascism or, according to some of the more paranoid theories, a Right-wing conspiracy devoted to the subversion of the Left itself. Needless to say, this interpretation is incorrect and National-Anarchists are vigorously opposed to statism and reaction in all forms. At the same time, the 'national' component of the term National-Anarchism centres on the fact that some of us are racial separatists. Needless to say, whilst we wish to form Anarchist communities that are ethnically organic we also oppose negative and counter-productive attitudes that encourage racial hatred or mindless violence. Race-based politics have nearly always been the domain of Right-wing organisations. But the fact that National-Anarchists are prepared to address this thorny issue should not cause people to wrongly dismiss us as yet another Right-wing organisation committed to promoting 'white supremacy', because National-Anarchism itself transcends both Left and Right. We are not supremacist, racist, statist or totalitarian. In addition, the German National-Socialists and Italian Fascists of the twentieth century allied themselves with large banking interests and betrayed the more 'socialistic' aspects of their original programmes. We are genuine Anarchists and proud of the fact.

Right-wing organisations that recommend either a tightening of current immigration laws or advocate that people of non-European descent be repatriated to their countries of ethnic origin, inevitably try to play the system at its own game and therefore always come off second-best. The reason for this is simple. Not only do they become seduced and then corrupted by the parliamentary establishment and end up having to compromise in order to make electoral progress, they also reinforce the nonsensical realities of the modern nation-state by completely failing to understand the important difference between citizenship and ethnicity. As we mentioned in the Introduction, the 1789 French Revolution transformed a nation of monarchical subjects into citizens of a new republic, but aside from the fact that the jingoistic watchwords of 'liberty, equality and fraternity' were never put into practice, it did become possible for individuals to become part of the nation through citizenship alone, rather than it being a result of their French ethnicity. This subtle change has now smoothed the way for modern capitalists to bring in economic migrants from the Third World who, allegedly, are just as 'French', 'English' or 'German' as those of us with a blood-lineage stretching back thousands of years. The 'nations' of today, therefore, are completely false. By giving credence to these artificial entities, the Right actually reinforces the liberal-democratic myth. However, due to mass immigration and shifting demographics, the populations of contemporary Western 'nations' are changing all the time and therefore the establishment makes a determined effort to constantly redefine the whole concept of nationhood. For many people, the multi-racial populations of Europe and North America can no longer be regarded as 'nations' at all. People of non-European extraction may well be national citizens and hold a valid passport informing them that they have become 'naturalised', but, in reality, true nationhood is based on ethnic considerations. Names like 'England', 'France' and 'Germany' were once related to specific tribes and they were hardly Moorish, Bedouin or Zulu, so the fact that modern nation-states no longer reflect the ethnic identity of those original Indo-European tribes – or at least not entirely – makes the whole thing a total farce. Is northern Paris, with its large African population, still French? Are the Turks who have settled in Deutschland still German? Of course not.

For some National-Anarchists, Race defines who we are and provides us with an identity and exists for a damn good reason. Without maintaining this essential diversity, something you can find throughout nature, the world will become increasingly drab, standardised and monotonous. National-Anarchists wish to preserve the different races of the earth and believe that enforced multi-racialism ends with the dissolution of races themselves. For some of us, therefore, racial separatism is the only way that the organic balance can be restored. We realise that it is impossible to separate people in the large cities and towns, many of whom have racially-mixed children or wish to live among foreign populations, and neither should we attempt to do so. Indeed, we believe that the nation-states of the West are likely to collapse in the next few decades and that our respective countries will begin to fragment along racial and cultural lines. So there is clearly no need to treat people inhumanely by herding them into camps or deporting them in the way that the Nazis and Soviets did in the last century; something which ended disastrously for those concerned. National-Anarchists must form new communities based on their own values. The maxim of the future will be respect for others and unity in diversity.

Finally, it must be understood that the National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM) is not a racial separatist organisation per se and neither do we believe that it is essential for everyone to accept this principle. We adhere to the principle of 'live and let live' and, if people wish to establish multi-racial communities whilst retaining the 'National-Anarchist' label, then they should be permitted to do so. In other words, we believe that supporters of both mono-racialism and mixed tribal communities can work together for the wider promulgation of National-Anarchism in general. The most important thing of all, however, is for each of our communities to be established with a unifying vision; be it racial, cultural or spiritual. Separatism for some, mixed tribes for others.

ECONOMIC AUTARKY

If you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit. – Sir Josiah Stamp

Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws. – Meyer Amschel Rothschild

Less and less, then, will the juggling of finance have power over us; for it does not matter what they call the counters when you are exchanging hams for handkerchiefs, or pigs for pianos. – G.K. Chesterton

THE last few years have seen the international stockbrokers and high street banks become increasingly materialistic, even going so far as to swallow one another up in a rapacious war of all-against-all. There is no sentiment in business, of course, but money was not always used for person gain and began as a means of exchange. At one time, of course, people would barter – or exchange – various items without using money at all. Since then, however, money has become a commodity in itself and the money-grubbing speculators and middle-men have devoured our communities like financial piranha. By lending money at exorbitant rates of interest, the modern usurers, loan sharks and creditors have tightened their vice-like grip around the throats of our national economies. But whilst the money-lenders can create their own finance with the mere stroke of a pen or just a few taps on the keyboard, their clients have to pay it back in real terms – including interest. Regardless how much real money or gold bullion they have hidden away in the vaults, the banks simply hand over a paper cheque and then expect you to pay them off with hard cash over an agreed period of time. If you lose your job, on the other hand, or find that you are unable to keep up the repayments for any other reason, the bailiffs arrive to seize your possessions or, in many cases, your home.

The usurers also manipulate entire governments by shackling them to the national debt. This is incurred by those countries which have borrowed money to go to war or prop up their flagging economies, but it has to be repaid through rising taxation and this leads, inevitably, to a decline in public services and affects the poorest people in society. So what are the economic alternatives?

We have long predicted that the internationalist system will collapse under its own weight, but you can help us hasten that process by making sure that you operate outside the present economic infrastructure as much as you possibly can. There has always been a black market, of course, but there are more legal ways of avoiding the banks, the loan companies and the tax men. One way this can be achieved is through bartering or by setting up local exchange trading services (LETS), which enable people to trade skills and services. This operates by creating a credit scheme that is rather similar to the way money used to function before the system became corrupted. If someone cuts your hair, for example, you may wish to use the barter system and return the favour by mowing their lawn or giving their daughter piano lessons. With the LETs idea, on the other hand, you may receive a haircut and find that you are not currently able to offer anything in return. Perhaps your job is seasonal, for example. This problem can easily be surmounted by appointing a community book-keeper who makes a note of all transactions. If somebody owes somebody else for receiving a service of some kind, the person who provided the service receives either a credit note or form of local currency. But there is no interest involved. In London, for example, there is the 'Brixton pound', and thousands more communities around Europe and the world each have their own local versions of the exchange trading system. Alternative currencies drive government bureaucrats and tax-collectors alike wild with fury, because people are operating outside the official economic parameters and thus strengthening the community at the expense of the state.

National-Anarchists can also establish alternative businesses. All it takes is for a group of people to grow their own food or make their own goods and set up a co-operative and participate in a trading scheme as a means of exchanging goods or services with other National-Anarchists in the community. Rather than pay with national currency, however, the purchasers should use an alternative currency or provide a service or skill in return. These schemes can become so highly successful that very often money rarely changes hands at all and everybody benefits from the economic freedom that this creates. Remember: we don't have to involve ourselves in the current economic structure, see what you can do to withdraw from the fraudulent money system and live a more independent and self-sufficient life.

THE GREEN REPLENISHMENT

An avenue of trees had stood there. They were all gone. And looking with dismay up the road towards Bag End they saw a tall chimney of brick in the distance. It was pouring out black smoke into the evening air. – J.R.R. Tolkien

One day the sewage of the cities will cease to be poured into the rivers, and will be returned to the land, to grow fine food for the people. One day salmon will leap again in the clear waters of a London river; and human work will be creative, and joyful. One day the soul of man, shut in upon itself during the long centuries of economic struggle, will arise in the light of the sun of truth. – Henry Williamson

WHILST the modern world appears to be in a state of great disarray, the perpetual relevance of nature both as a guide and a source of inspiration continues to invite our utmost respect and admiration. Sadly, however, the vast majority of people have become alienated from their origins, detached from their racial and cultural heritage, and cut off from their roots.

In the past, man had an inextricable bond with the soil. Not only was his racial heritage of great importance, but he also knew how essential it was to carve out and defend a territory in which to express his own values and aspirations. Sadly, however, due to the immense destruction that has been wrought on the environment today, not least in the overpopulated countries of Europe and North America, it is impossible to live in harmony with nature without moving away from the cities and out into the countryside.

There have been many 'back-to-the-land' movements down the centuries, some religious and others politically idealistic or even disastrously utopian. But the National-Anarchist vision of a rural revolution is not utopian, unworkable or unrealistic in the slightest. We realise that any attempt to set up and maintain National-Anarchist communities will be extremely difficult, but we have to start the process now before it's too late.

Life in our modern cities and towns is incredibly fragile and people are wholly dependant on exterior resources. Gas, electricity, food and water all have to be brought in from outside. In the event of a major catastrophe, however, or a situation in which the state decides to withdraw or cut off the supply, it will not be possible to pop down to the local supermarket for a tray of diced pork or expect water to come out of the tap when you turn it on. Modern existence and its throwaway culture is based on convenience, but this makes people extremely weak and in times of crisis they soon find that they have lost the ability to perform the most simple and basic tasks that will help them survive.

National-Anarchists wish to end this passive dependence on the state and reintroduce people to the real, organic world. For some people, this will be completely impossible and many are incapable of getting to grips with the environment. But at one time, people in rural villages were utterly self-sufficient and had no need for outsiders or to support a government that obtained its wealth and power by constantly declaring war on Third World countries and stealing their resources. The natural environment contains all the resources we are ever likely to need.

The economic collapse that is likely to take place in the West will result in complete panic and disarray. Millions will perish as a result of their reliance on the state. We have to make sure that we are included among those who can withstand such an emergency, but unless we begin to construct our own village-communities now we will simply go down with everyone else. The first step is to move away from the urban areas and begin to downsize. Try to think about the things that will really help you and your family survive, rather than what is perhaps unnecessary or too extravagant. These things are often a question of scale and many of the things you consider to be important at the present time will become obsolete in the future. Survival, on the other hand, is never obsolete, it is absolutely essential.

Relocating to the countryside is just the first step in helping to replenish the natural order and live in accordance with the environment. The next step is to become economically self-sufficient and that means finding a source of income that will allow you to remain in the countryside and avoid being sucked into the centre, which is what happened during the Industrial Revolution. In other words, by setting up the kind of economic alternatives discussed in the previous section – bartering, local exchange trading schemes, co-operatives etc. – you will begin to empower both yourselves and the local community. This may sound a little scary to people who have had little or no experience of the countryside, but there are already hundreds of Anarchist and other alternative communities around the world that have become self-sufficient. It all depends how serious you are and whether you can learn to prioritise.

Habitation in the contemporary world often involves taking out mortgages from banks or renting expensive property from exploitative landlords, but National-Anarchists believe there are other ways to make homes for ourselves and our families. By pooling their resources, some Anarchists have bought small plots of land and constructed their own alternative dwellings. Houses can be made, not simply from bricks and other expensive building materials, but also from rammed earth, straw bales and recycled materials. Indeed, whilst the interior design of such houses are just as functional and attractive as modern houses, they are made from very cheap materials and this opens up immense opportunities for people operating on far smaller budgets and who wish to be economically independent. Dwellings of this nature can also be built underground, or utilise power from wind, water or the sun.

The National-Anarchist Movement is also committed to re-establishing our rural crafts and what used to be known as the 'cottage industry'. At one time, country crafts and folk traditions flourished throughout the whole of Europe and included weaving, cobbling, stonewall construction, pottery, home-baking, blacksmithing, herbalism, woodcraft, thatching, pickling, book-binding, dressmaking, brewing, tanning and hundreds of other methods which relied on the resources people had to hand. Many of these things continue to exist in rural areas today, but to a certain extent even they have become dependant on outside suppliers and it is debatable whether or not they are completely self-sufficient. Some of these examples may seem rather quaint and old-fashioned, but this is because they have been submerged beneath a barrage of over-production and commercial junk. Economic independence makes you stronger.

Other benefits include a busy social life. National-Anarchists are keen to promote an alternative music industry and encourage more leisure time in which people can organise sports events, perform music and make their own entertainment. It seems incredible that some of the most natural things in the world now need to be revitalised due to the modern individual's dependence on the more voyeuristic pastimes like television, video games and computer networking.

Until those of us who are involved in the ecological struggle can learn to appreciate the spiritual reality which binds man to his environment, reactionaries, liberals and leftists alike will continue to delay the replenishment of the natural order. We revolutionaries can only revitalise and reclaim the natural world from the clutches of capitalism once we have discovered that which lies within ourselves. It is vital for us to come to terms with the fact that we sprang from the soil and are destined to return to it at the end of our brief sojourn upon this earth. So without a recognition of our inherent racial qualities and a territory in which to express our tribal identity, some of which may have to be forged elsewhere, we will remain as much a threatened species as the white rhino, the giant panda and the large blue butterfly. As Europe and North America struggles to cope with the catastrophic results of inner-city habitation and suicidal race-mixing, National-Anarchists must never forget that we humans are the natural guardians of the soil and our extinction would be possibly the greatest ecological disaster of all. This is why we must seek to re-establish ourselves in the heart of the rural countryside.

ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION

Men had better be without education than be educated by their rulers; for this education is but the mere breaking in of the steer to the yoke; the mere discipline of the hunting dog, which by dint of severity is made to forego the strongest impulse of his nature, and instead of devouring his prey, to hasten with it to the feet of his master. – Thomas Hodgkins

He that will not apply new remedies must expect new evils. – Roger Bacon

ONE of the main reasons people choose to become involved in political activity, is due to a growing concern towards the kind of world our children will be forced to inherit in the future. As opponents of private and state capitalism we would all like to see a new generation of young people become instilled with our own healthy values, but for a System which allows its moral and intellectual standards to be fixed by the mass society – so that individuality and non-participation are discouraged – this becomes a rather subversive demand. Are we fighting a losing battle or can we somehow ensure that our message of political, social and economic decentralisation is passed on to the youth of tomorrow?

It is our view that the political and economic objectives of the National-Anarchist Movement must be preceded by a spiritual revolution which begins in the hearts and minds of individuals and then spreads by example. If we cannot change ourselves, then we cannot ever expect to encourage others to share our world-view and thus help build alternatives to the present system. Furthermore, if we do not set an example to our children then we will inevitably lose them to the prevailing anti-culture of television game shows, abortion-on-demand, gangsta rap, drug-addiction and conformist apathy. The only way that we can succeed, therefore, is by rejecting the system itself and making the education of our own youth a priority.

Ever since the second half of the nineteenth century and the gradual expansion of the proletariat, parents no longer have the task of educating their children and most are deposited into State-run or grant-maintained schools. But is it right that a mother who is opposed to wage-slavery and economic servitude should be thrust into the workplace whilst her children are indoctrinated by the very system that she and her spouse vigorously oppose? Of course not. Picture the scene as a fifteen year-old child is taught by her parents that hunter-gatherer societies on the periphery are being undermined by the exploitative fatcats at the industrial core. Before long, the same child is being informed by her teacher in the classroom that the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution are responsible for the betterment of society as a whole and that she must write an essay on Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations by next Tuesday. Short of marching up to the school every two or three days, to complain to the headmaster that a certain teacher is contradicting their beliefs, there is very little the child's parents can do in such a situation. The only alternative is for parents to take their children out of school completely and educate them at home.

According to one source, "there are two broad groups of home educators: those with a philosophy and those with a problem." But whilst many children are constantly exposed to bullying and various other problems, we should be primarily interested in how our children are developing ideologically. With the gradual decline of academic standards in modern society, many parents are exploring the option of home-schooling as a means of securing a sound education for their children. This idea is becoming very popular amongst religious groups, particularly Pagan and Muslim parents who have come to realise that the safest way of ensuring that their children receive an education based around their respective traditional and ethnic values, is to teach them first-hand. We must ensure that those of us with children make full use of this vital option.

Home-schooling is certainly not a new concept. After all, before the advent of schools or educational systems it was considered perfectly natural for parents to educate and nurture their own children, with many of them viewing it as a sacred task. Nowadays. many parents are waking up to the fact that whilst people vary and have different needs, the National Curriculum merely demonstrates how a bureaucratic educational system is unable to cater for all tastes. Indeed, all curricula are heavily steeped in propaganda and those parents who believe in independence and creativity are becoming anxious for their children to have an opportunity to explore an alternative set of political or spiritual issues. It is also a fact that the less we depend upon the institutions of the state, the more freedom we can have over our own lives.

Once you start exploring the options, you will discover that there are many self-help groups out there who can give you important advice about how to proceed. Few people are aware that home-schoolers do not have to follow the National Curriculum. In fact they do not have to take tests or exams, do not have to have a timetable, do not have to have a qualified tutor to teach them, do not have to work during the usual school hours and do not have to work any particular number of hours a week. Parents themselves can provide their own teaching syllabuses and materials, not least because in most countries the state refuses to give them any financial assistance. Whist this may suggest that home-schooling is a costly business, especially for working class folk, teaching materials are not really that expensive. There are a wide range of preparatory textbooks which can be ordered from libraries. Alternatively, second-hand bookshops can often enable you to pick up a variety of useful encyclopaedias and other basic study aids for very little cost. If several National-Anarchists living in one area wish to organise a teaching environment for their children, books, stationary and other resources can even be shared. The proposed environment can simply be a room in a National-Anarchist household, one which has been set aside for a blackboard, a small collection of educational literature and some painting, drawing and modelling materials.

Research has shown that many home-schooled children are two years ahead of those educated in schools and considerably more self-motivated. Parents are able to build up interesting programmes for their children using a wide range of sources, from selective school broadcasts on television to local museums. The choice extends to formal lessons, computer programmes, reading, playing, music, cooking, craftwork, sports and outdoor activities. Some parents may be concerned that home-schooling will result in their children being excluded from universities and colleges when they approach the official school-leaving age, due to the fact that it does not gear them towards tests and examinations. However, universities welcome application from home-schooled students and believe students educated primarily at home possess the passion for knowledge, independence and self-reliance that enables them to excel in intellectually challenging programmes of study. So schools will undoubtedly fade into the background as the whole community becomes a network of learning centres with people themselves taking full control of their family's education.

One argument used by the liberal opponents of home-schooling is that children raised in such an environment will somehow grow up 'sheltered' or 'socially naive'. However, this accusation can easily be refuted by pointing out that home-schooling essentially protects the innocence of childhood from the ravages of the mass society in which we find ourselves. Indeed, why shouldn't parents seek to defend their offspring from the trappings of liberal-capitalism? Another favourite contention put forward by those who favour mass educational methods relates to the issue of socialisation. But whereas children do need to socialise with other children, this is not the reason why they attend schools, anyway; schools should be there to educate children, not force them to adhere to a specific pattern of behaviour. Parents who home-school their children already ensure that their youngsters come into contact with other people through clubs, societies and associations. Home-schooling enables children to socialise within their own communities, rather than be subjected to the forced tyranny of the adolescent peer group. According to the March 1996 issue of Child Education magazine (p.68):

Several studies of home educated children have found that they have better social skills and are better socially adjusted than children of the same age who are educated at school. Home educated children tend to have more experience of relating to people who are both older and younger than themselves. In addition, they have had the particular benefit of learning through conversation and close personal contact. How often are children in a class of thirty or more listened to individually, talked to personally and praised and encouraged?

High praise indeed from a journal produced by the educational establishment!

If National-Anarchist parents are able to introduce their children to like-minded families in the same area it is possible to prevent 'outsiders' from having any influence upon their lives whatsoever. Indeed, by herding thirty or forty children of the same age group together in one room, schools inevitably create an artificial environment. This process hardly prepares young people for the harsh realities of life outside. In addition, the school is designed to turn youngsters into a ready-made workforce and far from acquainting them with their historical and cultural traditions, adopts a production-line approach in order to prepare them for the boring servility of the factory floor or the computer terminal. Parents feel that there is plenty of time to get to grips with the grim realities of boring, repetitive jobs. Indeed, they may choose home education because they do not want their children to accept such limitations. They may hope instead to foster resourcefulness and individuality which will prepare them for more adventurous, interesting lives.

Finally, many of us are already involved in such initiatives and, in the future, hope to build an alternative home-education network. The growing distrust parents have towards the incompetence of state schooling is a crack in the enemy's amour that is waiting to be exploited. Conscientious parents instinctively know that something is wrong with the system and are looking for a way out of it. Such people need our example and incentive, and there is no reason why National-Anarchists cannot become one of the leading proponents of home education. We must establish practical learning centres, where tools and equipment will be available for those who wish to borrow them; we must install alternative libraries where children can gain access to alternative books, tapes, films and exhibitions; we must create Community Centres to involve local people in sports activities, music, drama and social events; and we must set up family advice groups, where parents and children can meet up to discuss useful teaching methods and, if necessary, air potential problems or difficulties. In the meantime, if you are a parent who is unprepared to see your child force-fed a daily diet of 'political correctness' and 'positive discrimination', then you should seriously consider the educational alternatives which are gradually becoming available. We must never lose sight of the fact that our alternative future lies in its youth.

DEFENCE

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. – Robert A. Heinlein

NATIONAL-ANARCHISTS do not suppose for one moment that alternative communities which have made a break with the system can remain immune from attack on a permanent basis. Human nature is such that, inevitably, there will always be potential outsiders wishing to cause trouble or steal our resources. Whilst we may be decentralists ourselves, many others are not and therefore our land and property will have to be vigorously defended like any other community. We reject utopianism and believe that we must always look at these things realistically, because our village-communities will have to arm themselves appropriately in order to survive. This does not, however, require the existence of a standing army or police force.

According to John E. Pfeiffer, writing in The Emergence of Man (Harper & Row, 1969), "when a group exceeds 500 persons, it requires some form of policing". The reason being, 500 is the maximum number of people that a single individual can know personally and therefore if people in National-Anarchist areas are comparatively more familiar with their neighbours it will result in a more settled and peaceful community. Unlike the anonymous, atomised, urban societies of today, where most people rarely ever communicate with their neighbours, or try to avoid doing so as much as possible, crime will be reduced as a result of the fact that residing amongst one's extended family (aunts, uncles, grandfathers and grandmothers etc.) tends to keep the peace through a process known as 'shaming'. In other words, people are naturally discouraged from committing crimes against their neighbours if they are known to the community at large and therefore likely to face a degree of shame and embarrassment if caught. It won't make crime totally non-existent, obviously, but it will make such incidents far more isolated. This means that there is absolutely no need whatsoever for police, because National-Anarchist communities will police themselves in the way that villages used to before the establishment of a police force in the Victorian period. And even that came about as a result of overpopulation and a lack of street lighting which led to disorder in large cities and towns. The moment when a policeman puts on his uniform is the very instance when he divides himself from the rest of the community at large and that must never be allowed to happen.

The same goes for a standing army, because whilst National-Anarchists will clearly need to defend themselves by networking with like-minded communities, this can be achieved through good regional co-operation rather than by keeping arms in the hands of a centralised body. On the contrary, we propose that National-Anarchist communities form a confederation of loosely-organised militia comprised of individuals who have other roles in society but who are also highly trained in the methods of self-defence and, if necessary, warfare. In Medieval Europe, for example, farmers and artisans would serve in their feudal overlord's private army for a certain number of days each year. We are not suggesting that people serve a local baron or member of the nobility, obviously, but our system will be fairly similar in that ordinary members of the public – especially young people – will be operating in a dual capacity and thus be able to provide some form of military service on an intermittent or infrequent basis. This will require good communication and training, but with the right determination and commitment it will be possible to provide an effective defensive force in a more decentralised context. Finally, it goes without saying that arms will be held in the hands of the community itself. This system has been operating very successfully in modern-day Switzerland for many years and whilst gun ownership comes with great responsibility gun crime itself is extremely rare. National-Anarchists also believe in providing help and advice on survivalism, martial arts and other forms of self-defence, all important skills which are becoming increasingly vital as contemporary society continues to slide into chaos and the streets become more and more dangerous.

REVOLUTION

Nothing, nothing but war, war without mercy, will lead to any solution. – Peter Kropotkin

The passion for destruction is also a creative passion. – Mikhail Bakunin

That which is falling, should also be pushed. – Friedrich Nietzsche

The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands dirty. – Joseph Tommasi

THE precise meaning of the word 'revolution' is often highly contested. It can mean a violent overthrow of the existing order, or perhaps a sudden break with current trends. The fact that revolution contains the root word 'revolve', meanwhile, indicates that it also relates to a return of some kind. Think of the way that a compass takes a pencil back to its original starting point, for example. For us, there are several definitions surrounding the word 'revolution' and each of them have an important role to play in their own right.

Most revolutions that have taken place throughout history have led to a cruel and systematic betrayal of ordinary men and women. Millions have lost their lives and many others cynically used to overthrow a crooked ruling class on behalf of an equally corrupt and jealous bourgeoisie. National-Anarchists are vigorously opposed to the artificial injustices of the enforced class system and believe, not in Marxist 'equality' and 'egalitarianism', but in a natural meritocracy that adequately reflects the true nature of the individual and his role in society.

There have been many positive examples of revolutionary activity, among them the Luddites of 1812, the Swing Riots and Tolpuddle Martyrs of the 1830s, the co-operative movement established by the Rochdale Pioneers, Robert Owen's communal experiments in both Scotland and America, the French Commune of 1871 and the agricultural co-operatives which were set up by Anarchists during the Spanish Civil War of the mid-1930s. Those on the Left try to claim these revolutionary currents for their own, but they do not have a monopoly when it comes to fighting against capitalism and, as we discussed earlier on, they often bring about capitalism in a slightly modified form. The examples mentioned above are part of a long tradition of struggle and National-Anarchism is the latest in a long line of genuine revolutionary currents that seek to bring about political self-expression, economic freedom and social justice.

Although we have already discussed various ways in which National-Anarchists can engage in revolutionary activity within the belly of the beast, so to speak, right here in the West, we also support the strategy of revolution on the periphery. In other words, we believe that revolutionary groups in the Third World are leading the way in the struggle against capitalist greed and exploitation. We therefore offer our critical support to all groups and organisations that fight on the frontline against the so-called New World Order and who seek to retain or reclaim their economic independence or racial and cultural identity. It is important to remember that revolution in the West is an extremely risky affair, at least if people try to arm themselves and take on the Establishment at this stage in the game. Direct armed resistance in the Third World, however, helps to weaken the globalist core because it either prevents or slows down the export of crops, minerals and various other resources to the West. At present, the West is able to buy off the corrupt leaders of Third World governments – many of whom have been plunged into debt through war and excessive borrowing – so that African and Asian resources are sent abroad at the point of a gun. This obviously results in starvation and misery for the indigenous people. But if the West finds it increasingly difficult to extract what it wants from the countries on the periphery, it will begin to wither and die in the way that the old Roman Empire began to collapse as a result of being overstretched in a perpetual quest for foreign territory, manpower and natural resources. Anything which weakens the West, therefore, must be good for those of us living beneath the jackboot of international capitalism and who desire real change.

The task we have set ourselves is a great one. The fight for culture, identity and economic self-determination is a cause that gives us a great sense of purpose and destiny. And yet, for those who are called to this fight in the immediate future, we can only offer a long and difficult road which is often characterised by disappointment and pain. Due to the fact that the path of the revolutionary is so difficult, many who join us simply fall by the wayside, unable to live up to the ideals. Such people inevitably cite a multitude of reasons for dropping out; from family problems to the fear of being 'exposed' as a National-Anarchist. But behind the excuses lies just one reason: the fact that they are not prepared to make even the smallest of sacrifices within their own lives to help us gain victory. Needless to say, we can well do without such people. In place of people such as this we seek a new type of individual, someone who is prepared to put his or her ideals before anything else. Here is the mark of a true revolutionary; an activist in the unselfish service of race and nation. And rest assured, never has our vision been in greater need of such individuals.

In this modern era the concept of sacrifice is anathema to virtually everyone. Modern man laughs at the idea of sacrifice. He proclaims: 'If I do a job I want paying for it. I never do anything for nothing.' Such a man has no understanding of higher ideals and knows even less about how to fight for them. It is because of such people and their selfish egocentrism that our civilisation is in such decay. One notable exception to this decline in idealism is that given to us by Hamas fighters waging a war of liberation in Zionist-occupied Palestine and, in particular, the men within their ranks who are prepared to die for their beliefs. Such heroism in the face of overwhelming odds is inspired. It shows us that the concept of personal sacrifice in pursuit of a political goal is not dead. It also shows that where such an ideal is harnessed and used it becomes a deadly force that cannot be beaten. Zionist Jews know all about the consequences of the Palestinian uprising and, make no mistake, they fear it.

If we are to win then we must follow such a example, an example born of purity of thought and action. We must endeavour to go down this road because it is the only road that will lead us to victory. Our ideals must inspire in us the same level of dedication and fanaticism, they must give us the same inner strength which breeds invincibility. Only if we can achieve this will we become a force capable of confronting and beating our enemies. In working towards this aim there are two immediate goals that must be achieved by everyone. Firstly, we must not be like other men and women, people who are solely the product of corporate advertisers, media propagandists, the liberal agenda and the materialist ethos. We must set ourselves apart and become true followers of the revolutionary way. Only when we are ideologically free of the System can we attack it with the clarity of vision needed to defeat it. Secondly, our goal must be to fight. Always to fight. If we are fighting, then we are winning. If we put down the sword, then we have already lost. This fight demands loyalty and it demands commitment. If we are not prepared to give our blood, sweat and tears then we will achieve nothing. There will be no advance and no victory. Nothing is more certain.

The ideal of sacrifice is not new. We revolutionaries have been pushing both it and the relationship between sacrifice and victory for a number of years. But whilst in the past these words seem to have fallen on deaf ears, they are now being taken seriously by dedicated revolutionaries. It is testimony to the strength of the National-Anarchist revolutionary that after all the betrayals and sell-outs of recent years, there has emerged a new mode of dedicated and dogged fanaticism. It is in this atmosphere, cleansed of compromise, that the possibility exists for moving the revolutionary cause into a new and more threatening position. For the sake of our future communities and their people this opportunity must be seized.

Welcome to 2033 #PodLife (sponsored by Caresforce)


The year is 2033. You own nothing.


Even the 'morality pills' in your pocket are on a microfinance loan secured against your future exhalation-metrics. You regularly practice shallow-breathing techniques, which register on your subcutaneous FitByte as 'Earth Tokens'. In ten years, you hope to trade them for a day-trip out of the city.


Your daily conversations are an admixture of corporate slogans and approved talking points. Intelligence is commonly understood as the ability to quickly and accurately assimilate and regurgitate your daily news-bites; ignoring contradictions in the narrative is seen as virtuous. Yesterdays news can be today's heresy and expressing 'violent opinions' (even to yourself) is a guaranteed trip to the Tranquillity Camps.


Your co-child's preschool has recently been upgraded to an immersive 'Edutech' pod, and once a month (when it's your turn to see the child) they come home, talking about getting nudged and poked by 'Uncle Bill' and Madam Abromavitch. You think nothing of it, as you see the pair on TV regularly enough.


You work for the OSS (Office of Statistical Security), revising and re-revising historic mortality data (prior to 2020), in line with the latest science models. You learnt in school that work has no meaning, it's just an organised system of oppression for wages, but it gets you out of your Smart Pod (and away from your 22 room mates).


You save a few carbon-credits by entering a scopolamine-induced mindfulness trance when on all forms of public transport. Studies have shown this can reduce your toxic CO2 emissions by as much as 6% over a lifetime, you tell yourself 'every little helps' each morning before you mask-up and begin your daily 'gas-brings-freedom' work programme. You had originally signed-up for it, to get a 'top fan' badge from the Greta Institute (which has since been revoked).


As of 2029 all statues and iconography of "Greta the Denier" were anaerobically combusted as per EarthGovt Diktat G92188106A2: as-such any discussion of the incident that led to her voluntary interment in the Tranquillity Camps has been disallowed. You secretly hope she'll survive and be re-canonised by the Climate Regime, in the near future. In your more paranoid moments, you suspect that this thought may be the reason why you've been restricted from leaving Biocircular Doughnut Region 12 (the human habitation zone surrounding the green-city wasteland formerly known as Bristol). There are rumours on several State-owned alternative information channels, that she's now genderfluid and on the road to remediation.


You pass the Covid-Cheka shuttleblocks on your way to work, and see a bearded man being rectally probed beside the road. You say to yourself, "I'm sure glad I got the permaSchwab embedded last year!" Your Neural-lace responds by triggering a small serotonin release and you gain +2 Responsibility Points, which register on your Human Capital data-hub. The driverless Uberbot overhears the word 'permaSchwab' and asks if you want to swing-by the clinic… your buttocks twitches and you double-up on morality pills.


Your cousin has a place out in the country, and you sometimes wonder if the rural life would be less demanding. After all, he's allowed to work the land in accordance with a few simple mandatory guidelines. His 'CommuPod' must submit their combined CO2 emissions to Gaia (the Global Artificial Intelligence Amalgamation), every Earth Day; use less than 0.1 global hectares of the EarthGovt's resources (per mask-wearer); have only 0.23 children per couple, and set-up a shrine to Maurice Strong or Al Gore besides their bunk-beds.


… last time you spoke, he said that the neighbouring farmers had just been "Net-Zero'd" for failure to register unlicensed vegetable production. If only you could find another 32 people in your socially distanced tech-cubicle VR office, and convince them to leave the city, maybe you could move into the farm next to your cousin. You begin to wish that you were still allowed to talk to your colleagues, before popping another pill and forgetting about the whole idea.


Your Quadupem-Dot tattoo is continuously connected to the 'Internet-of-Bodies' (IoB), monitoring and reporting your vital body-data, happiness and arousal metrics which are shared in real-time with Caresforce. You got the full package deal, because it came with free complementary shares in your own Happiness-Data, which you traded-in for coupons for a limited edition MucSoylent slushy. Your Caresforce Virtu-Twin warned you at the time, against such reckless Human Capital management, before processing the transaction for you, whilst you waited in the MucSoylent Uber-Q.
You missed the bus today, and so spent a weeks microfinance on a Genobike Share Scheme. You'll earn some carbon-credits back, once you get to work and sell the electricity that your weary peddling has generated, back to the EarthGovt.

Schwab Family Values


Is the real Klaus Schwab a kindly old uncle figure wishing to do good for humanity, or is he really the son of a Nazi collaborator who used slave labour and aided Nazi efforts to obtain the first atomic bomb? Johnny Vedmore investigates.

On the morning of 11 September 2001, Klaus Schwab sat having breakfast in the Park East Synagogue in New York City with Rabbi Arthur Schneier, former Vice President for the World Jewish Congress and closely associate of the Bronfman and Lauder families. Together, the two men watched one of the most impactful events of the next twenty years unfold as planes struck the World Trade Center buildings. Now, two decades on, Klaus Schwab again sits in a front row seat of yet a generation-defining moment in modern human history.

Always seeming to have a front row seat when tragedy approaches, Schwab's proximity to world-altering events likely owes to his being one of the most well-connected men on Earth. As the driving force behind the World Economic Forum, "the international organization for public-private cooperation," Schwab has courted heads of state, leading business executives, and the elite of academic and scientific circles into the Davos fold for over 50 years. More recently, he has also courted the ire of many due to his more recent role as the frontman of the Great Reset, a sweeping effort to remake civilization globally for the express benefit of the elite of the World Economic Forum and their allies.

Schwab, during the Forum's annual meeting in January 2021, stressed that the building of trust would be integral to the success of the Great Reset, signalling a subsequent expansion of the initiative's already massive public relations campaign. Though Schwab called for the building of trust through unspecified "progress," trust is normally facilitated through transparency. Perhaps that is why so many have declined to trust Mr. Schwab and his motives, as so little is known about the man's history and background prior to his founding of the World Economic Forum in the early 1970s.

Like many prominent frontmen for elite-sponsored agendas, the online record of Schwab has been well-sanitized, making it difficult to come across information on his early history as well as information on his family. Yet, having been born in Ravensburg, Germany in 1938, many have speculated in recent months that Schwab's family may have had some tie to Axis war efforts, ties that, if exposed, could threaten the reputation of the World Economic Forum and bring unwanted scrutiny to its professed missions and motives.

In this Unlimited Hangout investigation, the past that Klaus Schwab has worked to hide is explored in detail, revealing the involvement of the Schwab family, not only in the Nazi quest for an atomic bomb, but apartheid South Africa's illegal nuclear programme. Especially revealing is the history of Klaus' father, Eugen Schwab, who led the Nazi-supported German branch of a Swiss engineering firm into the war as a prominent military contractor. That company, Escher-Wyss, would use slave labor to produce machinery critical to the Nazi war effort as well as the Nazi's effort to produce heavy water for its nuclear program. Years later, at the same company, a young Klaus Schwab served on the board of directors when the decision was made to furnish the racist apartheid regime of South Africa with the necessary equipment to further its quest to become a nuclear power.

With the World Economic Forum now a prominent advocate for nuclear non-proliferation and "clean" nuclear energy, Klaus Schwab's past makes him a poor spokesperson for his professed agenda for the present and the future. Yet, digging even deeper into his activities, it becomes clear that Schwab's real role has long been to "shape global, regional and industry agendas" of the present in order to ensure the continuity of larger, much older agendas that came into disrepute after World War II, not just nuclear technology, but also eugenics-influenced population control policies.

A Swabian Story

On 10 July 1870, Klaus Schwab's grandfather Jakob Wilhelm Gottfried Schwab, referred to later as simply Gottfried, was born in a Germany at war with its French neighbours. Karlsruhe, the town where Gottfried Schwab was born, was located in the Grand Duchy of Baden, ruled in 1870 by the 43 year old Grand Duke of Baden, Frederick I. The following year, the aforementioned Duke would be present at the proclamation of the German Empire which took place in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles. He was the only son-in-law of the incumbent Emperor Wilhelm I and, as Frederick I, was one of the reigning sovereigns of Germany. By the time Gottfried Schwab turned 18 years old, Germany would see Wilhelm II take the throne upon the death of his father, Frederick III.

In 1893, a 23 year old Gottfried Schwab would officially depart from Germany giving up his German citizenship and leaving Karlsruhe in order to emigrate to Switzerland. At the time, his occupation was noted as being that of a simple baker. Here, Gottfried would meet Marie Lappert who was from Kirchberg near Bern, Switzerland and who was five years his junior. They would marry in Roggwil, Bern, on 27 May 1898 and the following year, on 27 April 1899, their child Eugen Schwab was born. At the time of his birth, Gottfried Schwab had moved up in the world, having become a Machine Engineer. When Eugen was around one year old, Gottfried and Marie Schwab decided to return to live in Karlsruhe and Gottfried reapplied for German citizenship again.

Eugen Schwab would follow in the footsteps of his father and also become a Machine Engineer and in future years, he would advise his children to do the same. Eugen Schwab would eventually begin working at a factory in a town in Upper Swabia in Southern Germany, capital of the district of Ravensburg, Baden-Württemberg.

The factory where he would forge his career was the German branch of a Swiss company named Escher Wyss. Switzerland had many long standing economic ties to the Ravensburg area, with Swiss traders in the early 19th century bringing in yarn and weaving products. In the same period, Ravensburg delivered grain to Rorschach until 1870, alongside breeding animals and various cheeses, deep within the Swiss Alps. Between 1809 and 1837, there were 375 Swiss people living in Ravensburg, though the Swiss population had dropped to 133 by 1910.

In the 1830s, skilled Swiss workers set up a cotton factory with an incorporated bleaching and finishing plant owned and maintained by the Erpf brothers. The Ravensburg horse market, created in around 1840, also attracted many people from Switzerland, especially after the 1847 opening of the railway line from Ravensburg to Friedrichshafen, a town situated on nearby Lake Constance on the borderlands of Switzerland and Germany.

Rorsach grain traders would make regular visits to the Ravensburger Kornhaus and eventually this cross-border cooperation and trade also led to a branch of the Zurich machine factory, Escher-Wyss & Cie, opening in the city. This feat was made plausible once a train line connecting the Swiss to the German route network was completed between 1850 and 1853. The factory was set up by Walter Zuppinger between 1856 to 1859 and would begin production in 1860. In 1861, we can see the first official patent of the manufacturers Escher-Wyss in Ravensburg of "peculiar facilities on mechanical looms for ribbon weaving". At this time, the Ravensburg branch of Escher Wyss would be directed by Walter Zuppinger, and would be where he developed his tangential turbine and where he gained a number of additional patents. In 1870, Zuppinger along with others would also founded a paper mill works in Baienfurt close to Ravensburg. He retired in 1875 and devoted all his energies to the further advance of turbines.

Founding Document of the Escher-Wyss Ravensburg Factory, dated 1860.

At the turn of the new century, Escher-Wyss had put the ribbon weaving to one side and begun to concentrate on much bigger projects like the production of large industrial turbines and, in 1907, they sought an "approval and concession procedure" for the construction of a hydropower plant near Dogern am Rhein, which was reported in a Basel brochure from 1925.

By 1920, Escher-Wyss found themselves embroiled in serious financial difficulties. The treaty of Versailles had restricted the military and economic growth of Germany following the Great War, and the Swiss Company found the downturn in neighbouring national civil engineering projects too much to bear. The parent branch of Escher-Wyss was located in Zurich and dated back to 1805 and the company, which still benefited from a good reputation and a history lasting more than a century, was deemed too important to lose. In December 1920, a reorganization was carried out by writing down the share capital from 11.5 to 4.015 million French Francs and which was later increased again to 5.515 million Swiss Francs. By the end of the financial year of 1931, Escher-Wyss was still losing money.

Yet, the plucky company continued to deliver large scale civil engineering contracts throughout the 1920s as noted in the official correspondence written in 1924 from Wilhelm III Prince of Urach to the company Escher-Wyss and to the asset manager of the House of Urach, accountant Julius Heller. This document discusses the "General Terms and Conditions of the Association of German Water Turbine Manufacturers for the Delivery of Machines and Other Equipment for Hydropower Plants". This is also confirmed in a brochure on the "Conditions of the Association of German Water Turbine Manufacturers for the Installation of Turbines and Machine Parts within the German Reich", printed on March 20, 1923 in an advertising brochure from Escher-Wyss for a universal oil pressure regulator.

After the Great Depression in the early 1930s had laid waste to the global economy, Escher-Wyss announced, "as the catastrophic development of the economic situation in connection with the currency declines; The company [Escher-Wyss] is temporarily unable to continue its current liabilities in various customer countries." The company also revealed that they would apply for a court deferral to the Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Nachrichten, which reported on 1 December 1931 that, "the company Escher-Wyss has been granted a stay of bankruptcy until the end of March 1932 and, acting as curator in Switzerland, a trust company has been appointed." The article stated optimistically that, "there should be a prospect of continuing operations." In 1931, Escher-Wyss employed around 1,300 non-contracted workers and 550 salaried employees.

By the mid-1930s, Escher-Wyss had again found itself in financial trouble. In order to rescue the company this time, a consortium was brought on board to save the ailing engineering firm. The consortium was partly formed by the Federal Bank of Switzerland (which was coincidently headed by a Max Schwab, who is of no relation to Klaus Schwab) and further restructuring took place. In 1938, it was announced that an engineer at the firm, Colonel Jacob Schmidheiny would become the new President of the Board of Directors at Escher-Wyss. Soon after the outbreak of war in 1939, Schmidheiny was quoted as saying, "The outbreak of war does not necessarily mean unemployment for the machine industry in a neutral country, on the contrary." Escher-Wyss, and its new management, were apparently looking forward to profiting off the war, paving the way for their transformation into a major Nazi military contractor.

A Brief History of Jewish Persecution in Ravensburg

When Adolf Hitler came to power, many things changed in Germany, and the story of the Jewish population of Ravensburg during that era is a sad one to tell. Yet, it was hardly the first time that anti-Semitism had first been recorded as having reared its ugly head in the region.

In the Middle Ages, a synagogue, mentioned as far back as 1345 was located at the centre of Ravensburg, serving a small Jewish community which can be traced from 1330 to 1429. At the end of 1429 and through 1430, the Jews of Ravensburg were targeted and a horrific massacre ensued. In the nearby settlements of Lindau, Überlingen, Buchhorn (later renamed Friedrichshafen), Meersburg and Konstanz, there were mass arrests of Jewish residents. The Jews of Lindau were burnt alive during the 1429/1430 Ravensburg blood libel, in which members of the Jewish community were accused of ritually sacrificing babies. In August 1430, in Überlingen, the Jewish community was forced to convert, 11 of them did so and the 12 who refused were killed. The massacres which took place in Lindau, Überlingen and Ravensburg happened with the direct approval of the ruling King Sigmund and any remaining Jews were soon expelled from the region.

Ravensburg had this ban confirmed by Emperor Ferdinand I in 1559 and it was upheld, for example, in an 1804 instruction issued for the city guard, which read: "Since the Jews are not allowed to engage in any trade or business here, no one else is allowed to enter the city by post or by carriage, The rest, however, if they have not received a permit for a longer or shorter stay from the police office, are to be removed from the city by the police station."

Not until the 19th century were Jews able to settle legally in Ravensburg again and, even by then, their number remained so small that a synagogue was not rebuilt. In 1858, there were only 3 Jews recorded in Ravensburg and, in 1895, this number peaked at 57. From the turn of the century until 1933, the numbers of Jews living in Ravensburg had steadily decreased until the community was only made up of 23 people.

By the start of the 1930s, there were seven main Jewish families living in Ravensburg, including the Adler, Erlanger, Harburger, Herrmann, Landauer, Rose and Sondermann families. After the National Socialists seized power, some of the Ravensburg Jews were initially forced to emigrate, while others would later be murdered in Nazi concentration camps. Leading up to World War II, there were many public displays of hatred towards the small community of Jews in and around Ravensburg.

As early as March 13, 1933, about three weeks before the nationwide Nazi boycott of all Jewish shops in Germany, SA guards posted themselves in front of two of the five Jewish shops in Ravensburg and tried to prevent potential buyers from entering, putting up signs on one shop stating "Wohlwert closed until Aryanization". Wohlwert's would soon become "Aryanised" and would be the only Jewish-owned shop to survive the Nazi pogrom. The other owners of the four large Jewish department stores in Ravensburg; Knopf; Merkur; Landauer and Wallersteiner were all forced to sell their properties to non-Jewish merchants between 1935 and 1938. During this period, many of the Ravensburg Jews were able to flee abroad before the worst of the National Socialist persecution began. While at least eight died violently, it was reported that three Jewish citizens who lived in Ravensburg survived because of their "Aryan" spouses. Some of the Jews who were arrested in Ravensburg during Kristallnacht were forced to march through the streets of Baden-Baden under SS guard supervision the following day and were later deported to Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

Horrific Nazi crimes against humanity took place in Ravensburg. On 1 January 1934, the "Law for the Prevention of Hereditary Diseases" came into force in Nazi Germany, meaning people with diagnosed illnesses such as dementia, schizophrenia, epilepsy, hereditary deafness, and various other mental disorders, could be legally forcibly sterilised. In the Ravensburg City Hospital, today called Heilig-Geist Hospital, forced sterilisations were carried out beginning in April 1934. By 1936, sterilisation was the most performed medical procedure in the municipal hospital.

In the pre-war years of the 1930s leading up to the German annexation of Poland, Ravensburg's Escher-Wyss factory, now managed directly by Klaus Schwab's father, Eugen Schwab, continued to be the biggest employer in Ravensburg. Not only was the factory a major employer in the town, but Hitler's own Nazi party awarded the Escher-Wyss Ravensburg branch the title of "National Socialist Model Company" while Schwab was at the helm. The Nazis were potentially wooing the Swiss company for cooperation in the coming war, and their advances were eventually reciprocated.

Escher-Wyss Ravensburg and the War

Ravensburg was an anomaly in wartime Germany, as it was never targeted by any Allied airstrikes. The presence of the Red Cross, and a rumoured agreement with various companies including Escher-Wyss, saw the allied forces publicly agree to not target the Southern German town. It was not classified as a significant military target throughout the war and, for that reason, the town still maintains many of its original features. However, much darker things were afoot in Ravensburg once the war began.

Eugen Schwab continued to manage the "National Socialist Model Company" for Escher-Wyss, and the Swiss company would aid the Nazi Wermacht produce significant weapons of war as well as more basic armaments. The Escher-Wyss company was a leader in large turbine technology for hydroelectric dams and power plants, but they also manufactured parts for German fighter planes. They were also intimately involved in much more sinister projects happening behind the scenes which, if completed, could have changed the outcome of World War II.

Western military intelligence were already aware of Escher-Wyss' complicity and collaboration with the Nazis. There are records available from western military intelligence at the time, specifically Record Group 226 (RG 226) from the data compiled by the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), which shows the Allied forces were aware of some of the Escher-Wyss' business dealings with the Nazis.

Within RG 226, there are three specific mentions of Escher-Wyss including:

  • File number 47178 which reads: Escher-Wyss of Switzerland is working on a large order for Germany. Flame-throwers are despatched from Switzerland under the name Brennstoffbehaelter. Dated Sept. 1944.
  • File number 41589 showed that the Swiss were allowing German exports to be stored in their country, a supposedly neutral nation during World War II. The entry reads: Business relations between Empresa Nacional Calvo Sotelo (ENCASO), Escher Wyss, and Mineral Celbau Gesellschaft. 1 p. July 1944; see also L 42627 Report on collaboration between the Spanish Empresa Nacional Calvo Sotelo and the German Rheinmetall Borsig, on German exports stored in Switzerland. 1 p. August 1944.
  • File number 72654 claimed that: Hungary's bauxite was formerly sent to Germany and Switzerland for refining. Then a government syndicate built an aluminium plant at Dunaalmas on the borders of Hungary. Electric power was provided; Hungary contributed coal mines, and equipment was ordered from the Swiss firm Escher-Wyss. Production began in 1941. 2 pp. May 1944.

Yet, Escher-Wyss were leaders in one blossoming field in particular, the creation of new turbine technology. The company had engineered a 14,500 HP turbine for the Norsk Hydro industrial facility's strategically important hydroelectric plant at Vemork, near Rjukan in Norway. The Norsk Hydro plant, part powered by Escher Wyss, was the only industrial plant under Nazi control capable of producing heavy water, an ingredient essential for making plutonium for the Nazi atomic bomb program. The Germans had put all possible resources behind the production of heavy water, but the Allied forces were aware of the potentially game-changing tech advances by the increasingly desperate Nazis.

During 1942 and 1943, the hydro plant was the target of partially successful British Commando and Norwegian Resistance raids, although heavy water production continued. The Allied forces would drop more than 400 bombs on the plant, which barely affected the operations at the sprawling facility. In 1944, German ships attempted to transport heavy water back to Germany, but the Norwegian Resistance were able to sink the ship carrying the payload. With help from Escher-Wyss, the Nazis were almost able to change the tides of war and bring about an Axis victory.

Back in the Escher-Wyss factory in Ravensburg, Eugen Schwab had been busy putting forced labourers to work at his model Nazi company. During the years of World War II, nearly 3,600 forced labourers worked in Ravensburg, including at Escher Wyss. According to the city archivist in Ravensburg, Andrea Schmuder, the Escher-Wyss machine factory in Ravensburg employed between 198 and 203 civil workers and POWs during the war. Karl Schweizer, a local Lindau historian, states that Escher-Wyss maintained a small special camp for forced labourers on the factory premises.

The use of masses of forced labourers in Ravensburg made it necessary to setup one of the largest recorded Nazi forced labour camps in the workshop of a former carpenter's at Ziegelstrasse 16. At one time, the camp in question accommodated 125 French prisoners of war who were later redistributed to other camps in 1942. The French workers were replaced by 150 Russian prisoners of war who, it was rumoured, were treated the worst out of all the POWs. One such prisoner was Zina Jakuschewa, whose work card and work book are held by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Those documents identify her as a non-Jewish forced labourer assigned to Ravensburg, Germany, during 1943 and 1944.

Eugen Schwab would dutifully maintain the status quo during the war years. After all, with young Klaus Martin Schwab having been born in 1938 and his brother Urs Reiner Schwab born a few years later, Eugen would have wanted to keep his children out of harm's way.

Klaus Martin Schwab – International Man of Mystery

Born on 30 March 1938 in Ravensburg, Germany, Klaus Schwab was the eldest child in a normal nuclear family. Between 1945 and 1947, Klaus attended primary school in Au, Germany. Klaus Schwab recalls in a 2006 interview with the Irish Times that:"After the war, I chaired the Franco-German regional youth association. My heroes were Adenauer, De Gasperi and De Gaulle."

Klaus Schwab and his younger brother, Urs Reiner Schwab, were both to follow in the footsteps of their grandfather, Gottfried, and their father, Eugen, and would both initially train as machine engineers. Klaus's father had told the young Schwab that, if he wanted to make an impact on the world, then he should train as a Machine Engineer. This would only be the beginning of Schwab's University credentials.

Klaus would begin studying his plethora of degrees at Spohn-Gymnasium Ravensburg between 1949 and 1957, eventually graduating from the Humanistisches Gymnasium in Ravensburg. Between 1958 and 1962, Klaus began working with various engineering companies and, in 1962, Klaus completed his mechanical engineering studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich with an engineering diploma. The following year, he also completed an economics course at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. From 1963 until 1966, Klaus worked as Assistant to the Director-General of the German Machine-building Association (VDMA), Frankfurt.

In 1965, Klaus was also working on his doctorate from the ETH Zurich, writing his dissertation on: "The longer-term export credit as a business problem in mechanical engineering". Then, in 1966, he received his Doctorate in Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich. At this time, Klaus's father, Eugen Schwab, was swimming in bigger circles than he had previously swam. After being a well known personality in Ravensburg as the Managing Director of the Escher-Wyss factory from before the war, Eugen would eventually be elected as President of the Ravensburg Chamber of Commerce. In 1966, during the founding of the German committee for Splügen railway tunnel, Eugen Schwab defined the founding of the German committee as a project "that creates a better and faster connection for large circles in our increasingly converging Europe and thus offers new opportunities for cultural, economic and social development".

In 1967, Klaus Schwab gained a Doctorate in Economics from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland as well as a Master of Public Administration qualification from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard in the United States. While at Harvard, Schwab was taught by Henry Kissinger, who he would later say were among the top 3-4 figures who had most influenced his thinking over the course of his entire life.

In the previously mentioned Irish Times article of 2006, Klaus talks about that period as being very important to the formation of his present idealogical thinking, stating: "Years later, when I came back from the US after my studies at Harvard, there were two events that had a decisive triggering event on me. The first was a book by Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber, The American Challenge – which said Europe would lose out against the US because of Europe's inferior management methods. The other event was – and this is relevant to Ireland – the Europe of the six became the Europe of the nine." These two events would help shape Klaus Schwab into a man who wanted to change the way people went about their business.

That same year, Klaus's younger brother Urs Reiner Schwab graduated from ETH Zurich as a mechanical engineer, and Klaus Schwab went to work for his father's old company, Escher-Wyss, soon to become Sulzer Escher-Wyss AG, Zurich, as Assistant to the Chairman to aid in the reorganisation of the merging companies. This leads us towards Klaus's nuclear connections.

The rise of a technocrat

Sulzer, a Swiss company whose origins date back to 1834, had first risen to prominence after starting to build compressors in 1906. By 1914, the family-run firm had become part of "three joint-stock companies," one of which was the official holding company. In the 1930s, Sulzer's profits would suffer during the Great Depression and, like many businesses at the time, faced disruption and industrial actions from their workers.

World War II may not have affected Switzerland as much as her neighbours, but the economic boom that was to follow led to Sulzer growing in power and market dominance. In 1966, just before the arrival of Klaus Schwab at Escher-Wyss, the Swiss turbine manufacturers signed a cooperation agreement with the Sulzer brothers in Winterthur. Sulzer and Escher-Wyss would begin to merge in 1966, when Sulzer purchased 53% of the company shares. Escher-Wyss would officially become Sulzer Escher-Wyss AG in 1969 when the last of the shares were acquired by the Sulzer brothers.

Once the merger had started, Escher-Wyss would begin to be restructured and two of the existing Board Members would be the first to find their service to Escher-Wyss coming to an end. Dr. H. Schindler and W. Stoffel would resign from the Board of Directors now headed by Georg Sulzer and Alfred Schaffner. Dr. Schindler had been a member of the Escher-Wyss Board of Directors for 28 years and had worked alongside Eugen Schwab throughout much of his service. Peter Schmidheiny would later take over as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Escher-Wyss, continuing the Schmidheiny family rule over the company's executives.

During the restructuring process, it was decided that Escher-Wyss and Sulzer would concentrate on separate areas of machine engineering with the Escher-Wyss factories primarily work on hydraulic power plant construction, including turbines, storage pumps, reversing machines, closing devices and pipelines, as well as steam turbines, turbo compressors, evaporation systems, centrifuges and machines for the paper and pulp industry. Sulzer would concentrate on the refrigeration industry as well as steam boiler construction and gas turbines.

On 1 January 1968, the freshly reorganised Sulzer Escher-Wyss AG was rolled out publicly and the company had become streamlined, a move deemed necessary because of several large acquisitions. This included a close collaboration with Brown Boveri, a group of Swiss electric engineering companies who had also worked for the Nazis, supplying the Germans with some of their U-boat technology used during World War II. Brown Boveri was also described as "defence-related electrical contractors" and would find the conditions of the Cold War arms race to be beneficial to their business.

The merger and reorganisation of these Swiss mechanical engineering giants saw their collaboration pay off in unique ways. During the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, Sulzer and Escher-Wyss used 8 refrigeration compressors to create tonnes of artificial ice. In 1969, the two firms combined to help in the building of a new passenger ship named "Hamburg", the first ship in the world to be fully air-conditioned thanks to the Sulzer Escher-Wyss combination.

In 1967, Klaus Schwab officially burst onto the scene of the Swiss business community and took a lead in the merger between Sulzer and Escher-Wyss, as well as forming profitable alliances with Brown Boveri and others. In December 1967, Klaus would speak at a Zurich event to the top Swiss machine engineering organisations; the Employers Association of Swiss Machine and Metal Manufacturers and the Association of Swiss Machine Manufacturers.

In his talk, he would correctly predict the importance of incorporating computers into modern Swiss machine engineering, stating that:

"In 1971, products that are not even on the market today are likely to account for up to a quarter of sales. This requires companies to systematically research possible developments and identify gaps in the market. Today, 18 of the 20 largest companies in our machine industry have planning departments that are entrusted with such tasks. Of course, everyone has to make use of the latest technological advances, and the computer is one of them. The many small and medium-sized companies in our machine industry take the path of cooperation or use the services of special data processing service providers."

Computers and data were obviously seen as important to the future, according to Schwab, and this was further projected in the reorganisation of Sulzer Escher-Wyss during their merger. Sulzer's modern website reflects this noteworthy change in direction, stating that, in 1968: "Material technology activities are intensified [by Sulzer] and form the basis for medical technology products. The fundamental change from a machine-building company to a technology corporation starts to become apparent."

Klaus Schwab was helping to turn Sulzer Escher-Wyss into something more than just a machine building giant, he was transforming them into a technology corporation driving at high speed into a hi-tech future. It should also be noted that Sulzer Escher-Wyss changed another focus of their business to help them "form the basis for medical technology products," an area not previously mentioned as a target industry for Sulzer and/or Escher-Wyss.

But technological advancement wasn't the only upgrade Klaus Schwab wanted to introduce at Sulzer Escher-Wyss, he also wanted to change how the company thought about their business managerial style. Schwab and his close associates were pushing an entirely new business philosophy which would allow "all employees to accept the imperatives of motivation and to ensure at home a sense of flexibility and manoeuvrability."

It is here in the late 1960s where we see Klaus begin to emerge as a more public figure. At this time, the Sulzer Escher-Wyss company also became more interested in engaging with the press than ever before. In January 1969, the Swiss giants setup a public advisory session entitled the "Press Day of the Machine Industry", which mainly concerned questions on company management. During the event, Schwab would state that companies using authoritarian styles of business management are "unable to fully activate the 'human capital'", an argument he would use on many separate occasions during the late 1960s.

Plutonium and Pretoria

Escher-Wyss were pioneers in some of the most important tech in power generation. As the US Department of Energy points out in their paper on Supercritical CO2 Brayton Cycle Development (CBC), a device used in hydro and nuclear power plants, "Escher-Wyss was the first company known to develop the turbomachinery for CBC systems starting in 1939." Going on to state that 24 systems were built, "with Escher-Wyss designing the power conversion cycles and building the turbomachinery for all but 3". By 1966, just before the entrance of Schwab into Escher-Wyss and the start of the Sulzer merger, the Escher-Wyss helium compressor was designed for the La Fleur Corporation and continued the evolution of the Brayton Cycle Development. This technology was still of importance to the arms industry by 1986, with nuclear powered drones being equipped with a helium-cooled Brayton cycle nuclear reactor.

Escher-Wyss had been involved with manufacturing and installing nuclear technology at least as early as 1962, as shown by this patent for a "heat exchange arrangement for a nuclear power plant" and this patent from 1966 for a "nuclear reactor gas-turbine plant with emergency cooling". After Schwab left Sulzer Escher-Wyss, Sulzer would also help to develop special turbocompressors for uranium enrichment to yield reactor fuels.

When Klaus Schwab joined Sulzer Escher-Wyss in 1967 and started the reorganisation of the company to be a technology corporation, the involvement of Sulzer Escher-Wyss in the darker aspects of the global nuclear arms race became immediately more pronounced. Before Klaus became involved, Escher-Wyss had often concentrated on helping design and build parts for civilian uses of nuclear technology, e.g. nuclear power generation. Yet, with the arrival of the eager Mr. Schwab also came the company's participation in the illegal proliferation of nuclear weapons technology. By 1969, the incorporation of Escher Wyss into Sulzer was fully completed and they would be rebranded into Sulzer AG, dropping the historic name Escher-Wyss from their name.

It was eventually revealed, thanks to a review and report carried out by the Swiss authorities and a man named Peter Hug, that Sulzer Escher-Wyss began secretly procuring and building key parts for nuclear weapons during the 1960s. The company, while Schwab was on the board, also began playing a critical key role in the development of South Africa's illegal nuclear weapons programme during the darkest years of the apartheid regime. Klaus Schwab was a leading figure in the founding of a company culture which helped Pretoria build six nuclear weapons and partially assemble a seventh.

In the report, Peter Hug outlined how Sulzer Escher Wyss AG (referred to post-merger as just Sulzer AG) had supplied vital components to the South African government and found evidence of Germany's role in supporting the racist regime, also revealing that the Swiss government "was aware of illegal deals but 'tolerated them in silence' while supporting some of them actively or criticised them only half-heartedly". Hug's report was eventually finalised in a work entitled: "Switzerland and South Africa 1948-1994 – Final Report of the NFP 42+ commissioned by the Swiss Federal Council" which was compiled and written by Georg Kreis and published in 2007.

By 1967, South Africa had constructed a reactor as part of a plan to produce plutonium, the SAFARI-2 located at Pelindaba. SAFARI-2 was part of a project to develop a reactor moderated by heavy water which would be fuelled by natural uranium and cooled using sodium. This link to developing heavy water for the creation of uranium, the same technology which had been utilised by the Nazis also with the help of Escher-Wyss, may explain why South Africans initially got Escher-Wyss involved. But by 1969, South Africa abandoned the heavy water reactor project at Pelindaba because it was draining resources from their uranium enrichment program that had first begun in 1967.

A South African nuke in storage

In 1970, Escher-Wyss were definitely deeply involved with nuclear technology, as seen in a record available in the Landesarchivs Baden-Württemberg. The record shows details of a public procurement process and contains information about award talks with specific companies involved in the procurement of nuclear technology and materials. The companies cited include: NUKEM; Uhde; Krantz; Preussag; Escher-Wyss; Siemens; Rheintal; Leybold; Lurgi; and the infamous Transnuklear.

The Swiss and South Africans had a close relationship through this period of history, when it was hardly easy for the brutal South African regime to find close allies. By 4 November 1977, the United Nations Security Council had enacted resolution 418 which imposed a mandatory arms embargo against South Africa, an embargo that wouldn't be fully lifted until 1994.

Georg Kreis pointed out the following in his detailed assessment of the Hug report:

"The fact that the authorities assumed a laisse-faire attitude even after May 1978 comes to the fore in an exchange of letters between the Anti-Apartheid Movement and the DFMA in October/December 1978. As the study by Hug explicates, the Anti-Apartheid Movement of Switzerland pointed to German reports according to which Sulzer Escher-Wyss and a company called BBC had supplied parts for the South African uranium enrichment plant, and to repeated credits to ESCOM, which also included considerable contributions by Swiss banks. These assertions led to questions of whether the Federal Council – in light of fundamental support of the UN embargo, ought not to instigate the National Bank to stop authorising credits for ESCOM in the future."

Swiss banks would help to fund the South African race to nukes and, by 1986, Sulzer Escher-Wyss were successfully producing special compressors for uranium enrichment.

The Founding of the World Economic Forum

In 1970, the young upstart, Klaus Schwab wrote to the European Commission and asked for help in setting up a "non-commercial think tank for European business leaders". The European Commission would sponsor the event as well, sending French politician Raymond Barre to act as the forum's "intellectual mentor". Raymond Barre, who was at that time European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, would later go on to become French PM and would be accused of making anti-Semitic comments while in office.

So, in 1970, Schwab left Escher Wyss to organise a two-week business managerial conference. In 1971, the first meeting of the World Economic Forum – then called the European Management Symposium – convened in Davos, Switzerland. Around 450 participants from 31 countries would take part in Schwab's first European Management Symposium, mostly made up of managers from various European companies, politicians, and US academics. The project was recorded as organised by Klaus Schwab and his secretary Hilde Stoll who, later the same year, would become Klaus Schwab's wife.

Klaus's European symposium was not an original idea. As writer Ganga Jey Aratnam stated quite coherently in 2018:

"Klaus Schwab's "Spirit of Davos" was also the "Spirit of Harvard". Not only had the business school advocated the idea of a symposium. Prominent Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith championed the affluent society as well as capitalism's planning needs and the rapprochement of East and West."

It was also true that, as Aratnam also pointed out, this was not the first time Davos had hosted such events. Between 1928 and 1931, the Davos University Conferences took place at the Hotel Belvédère, events which were co-founded by Albert Einstein and were only halted by the Great Depression and the threat of looming war.

The Club of Rome and the WEF

The most influential group that spurred the creation of Klaus Schwab's symposium was the Club of Rome, an influential think tank of the scientific and monied elite that mirrors the World Economic Forum in many ways, including in its promotion of a global governance model led by a technocratic elite. The Club had been founded in 1968 by Italian industrialist Aurelio Peccei and Scottish chemist Alexander King during a private meeting at a residence owned by the Rockefeller family in Bellagio, Italy.

Among its first accomplishments was a 1972 book entitled "The Limits to Growth" that largely focused on global overpopulation, warning that "if the world's consumption patterns and population growth continued at the same high rates of the time, the earth would strike its limits within a century." At the third meeting of the World Economic Forum in 1973, Peccei delivered a speech summarizing the book, which the World Economic Forum website remembers as having been the distinguishing event of this historical meeting. That same year, the Club of Rome would publish a report detailing an "adaptive" model for global governance that would divide the world into ten, inter-connected economic/political regions.

The Club of Rome was long controversial for its obsession with reducing the global population and many of its earlier policies, which critics described as influenced by eugenics and neo-Malthusian. However, in the Club's infamous 1991 Book, The First Global Revolution, it was argued that such policies could gain popular support if the masses were able to link them with an existential fight against a common enemy.

To that effect, The First Global Revolution contains a passage entitled "The common enemy of humanity is Man", which states the following:

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself."

In the years since, the elite that populate the Club of Rome and the World Economic Forum have frequently argued that population control methods are essential to protecting the environment. It is thus unsurprising that the World Economic Forum would similarly use the issues of climate and environment as a way to market otherwise unpopular policies, such as those of the Great Reset, as necessary.

The Past is Prologue

Since the founding of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab has become one of the most powerful people in the world and his Great Reset has made it more important than ever to scrutinize the man sitting on the globalist throne.

Given his prominent role in the far-reaching effort to transform every aspect of the existing order, Klaus Schwab's history was difficult to research. When you start to dig into the history of a man like Schwab, who sits aloft other shadowy elite movers and shakers, you soon find lots of information has been hidden or removed. Klaus is somebody who wants to stay hidden in the shadowy corners of society and who will only allow the average person to see a well-presented construct of their chosen persona.

Is the real Klaus Schwab a kindly old uncle figure wishing to do good for humanity, or is he really the son of a Nazi collaborator who used slave labour and helped the Nazi efforts to obtain the first atomic bomb? Is Klaus the honest business manager who we should trust to create a fairer society and workplace for the common man, or is he the person who helped push Sulzer Escher-Wyss into a technological revolution that led to its role in the illegal creation of nuclear weapons for South Africa's racist apartheid regime? The evidence I have looked at does not suggest a kindly man, but rather a member of a wealthy, well-connected family that has a history of helping create weapons of mass destruction for aggressive, racist governments.

As Klaus Schwab said in 2006 "Knowledge will soon be available everywhere – I call it the 'googlisation' of globalisation. It's not what you know any more, it's how you use it. You have to be a pace setter." Klaus Schwab considers himself to be a pace setter and a top table player, and it must be said that his qualifications and experience are impressive. Yet, when it comes to practising what you preach, Klaus has been found out. One of the three biggest challenges on the priority list for the World Economic Forum is the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, yet neither Klaus Schwab nor his father Eugen lived up to those same principles when they were in business. Quite the opposite.

In January, Klaus Schwab announced that 2021 is the year that the World Economic Forum and its allies must "rebuild trust" with the masses. However, if Schwab continues to hide his history and that of his father's connections to the "National Socialist Model Company" that was Escher-Wyss during the 1930s and 1940s, then people will have good reason to distrust the underlying motivations of his overreaching, undemocratic Great Reset agenda.

In the case of the Schwabs, the evidence doesn't point at simply poor business practices or some sort of misunderstanding. The story of the Schwab family instead reveals a habit of working with genocidal dictators for the base motives of profit and power. The Nazis and the South African apartheid regime are two of the worst examples of leadership in modern politics, yet the Schwabs obviously couldn't or wouldn't see that at the time.

In the case of Klaus Schwab himself, it appears that he has helped to launder relics of the Nazi era, i.e. its nuclear ambitions and its population control ambitions, so as to ensure the continuity of a deeper agenda. While serving in a leadership capacity at Sulzer Escher Wyss, the company sought to aid the nuclear ambitions of the South African regime, then the most Nazi adjacent government in the world, preserving Escher Wyss' own Nazi era legacy. Then, through the World Economic Forum, Schwab has helped to rehabilitate eugenics-influenced population control policies during the post-World War II era, a time when the revelations of Nazi atrocities quickly brought the pseudo-science into great disrepute. Is there any reason to believe that Klaus Schwab, as he exists today, has changed in anyway? Or is he still the public face of a decades-long effort to ensure the survival of a very old agenda?

The last question that should be asked about the real motivations behind the actions of Herr Schwab, may be the most important for the future of humanity: Is Klaus Schwab trying to create the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or is he trying to create the Fourth Reich?

Twenty Years of Attack the System: Was 2020 a Vindication?


It was 20 years ago this month, in January of 2001, that AttacktheSystem.Com first appeared.

Previously, I had been involved in radical activities since the late 1980s. For about five years, I was a conventional left-wing anarchist, engaging in strike support (Eastern Airlines, Greyhound Bus, Pittston Coal); antiwar activism (Central America, Indonesia, Cambodia, Persian Gulf War);  joining the IWW and IWA/WSA;  participating in riots in New York, Toronto, Berkeley, and at the Pentagon; creating student anarchist groups, a May Day festival, and homeless benefits; attending left-wing demonstrations (abortion, environment, war, homeless, anti-Klan);  teaching a class on anarchism at an alternative school; attending an anarchist convention San Francisco and the founding gathering of Love and Rage; being distributor/writer for anarchist 'zines, conducting anti-racism workshops, meeting a range of Left luminaries (Stokely Carmichael, Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Philip Agee, Michael Parenti), attending early Green meetings in the US, spending many hours in the HX833 section of the library reading books on anarchist history, and too many other activities to remember. I mention all this merely to point out that I was the real deal.

Eventually, I became less orthodox leftist in my orientation and more like something resembling an individualist-anarchist, wanting to focus on a more expansive view of anarchist thought (the Max Nettlau/Peter Marshall narrative), and exploring a range of other ideas and movements along the way.  I became interested in libertarianism, and then the militia/patriot movement following the incidents Waco and Ruby Ridge, going to militia gatherings and preparedness expos, and encountering militiamen, sovereign citizens, and neo-secessionists for the first time. I then became interested in forming a radical alliance project and formed American Revolutionary Vanguard in 1999. Our first meeting was an oddball and seemingly contradictory mixture of left-anarchists, skinheads, black power, libertarians, leftists, and gun nuts (like a scene out of the film "Anarchist Cookbook").

I started a public access TV show that aired intermittently over a three year period. On the internet, discovered a much wider range of political subcultures, including European Third Positionists, and other tendencies with which I had not previously been familiar. I wanted to create a website combining all of these influences, with the idea of forming an anarchist umbrella organization that would be the "revolutionary vanguard" of a larger radical alliance, and which would more or less combine left-anarchism with its emphasis on direct action/general strikes/dual power, libertarian anti-statism/voluntarism, militia/secessionist gun nuttery, leftist anti-globalization, and Third Position anti-globalism.

In December of 2000, at a pro-marijuana rally, I mentioned this pending project to 19-year-old college student who suggested the name AttacktheSystem.Com, and the now long-defunct original design of Attack the System was done by a high school kid, a friend's younger brother. ATS went live in January of 2001, and was predictably controversial from the beginning, with many right-wingers (and some left-wing anarchists) viewing us as Communists, and many left-wingers viewing us as fascists (both of which continue to the present).

The core idea behind ATS was to focus less on the laundry list of liberal causes embraced by the left-anarchists or (alternatively, the economic and/or social conservatism of the libertarians and populist-right) and more on anti-globalism/imperialism, corporatism, and the state specifically, while offering beyond left/right/center paradigm in favor of cultural pluralism, voluntary association,  political and economic decentralization.

What Has Happened Since 2001

With the September 11, 2001 attacks, the Islamists lured the USA into a never-ending series war, resulting in the decline of American influence and prestige, and the current slow but steady retreat of unipolarity and globalization. Ongoing polarization in the USA, at an all-time high now, was only beginning in 2001 (Bush v. Gore election), and a range of populist movements (Occupy and Tea Party, Sanders and Trump) have since come and gone. Twenty-first-century left-wing protest movements were only beginning in 2001 with anti-globalization. The rise of militia movements in the 1990s has evolved into similar contemporary tendencies from both the left and right,  including Three Percenters, Oathkeepers, BLM, Antifa, Proudboys, and Redneck Revolt.  Both domestic terrorism and public shootings have become more common. The 1999 Columbine High School massacre was just the preview.

The lumpenproletarian insurrection in 2020 seems to have vindicated my long-held speculation, based on the 1992 West Coast insurrection, that the lumpenproletariat would be the vanguard class in future insurgencies,. 2020 was 1992 on steroids. In the 1980s and 1990s, the police state of Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, and the Bush family was being fully consolidated and reached exponential levels following the 9/11 attacks. However, the subsequent two decades have also witnessed the gradual fall of the drug war (formerly the core building block of the police state), a shift in public opinion on the police state (evidenced by popular support for "criminal justice reform"), a declining enthusiasm and loss of legitimacy of US imperialism. As a cultural drift much further to the left has taken place, the right has become more radical and militant in its opposition even as the right has become smaller in size.

Widening class divisions have accelerated dramatically. Neoliberalism began in the 1980s, and was consolidated in the 1990s, and accelerated once again by the Great Recession of 2008, and yet again by the impact of COVID-19 in 2020.  Meanwhile embryonic pan-secessionist actions have taken place (sanctuary cites, 2nd amendment sanctuaries, CHAZ/CHOP, etc.), with many of these rooted in the ten core demographics I identified about a decade ago as the likely future actors of anti-system actions, with many of these reflecting the kind of libertarian populist hybrid and implicit philosophical anarchism I have written about in the past, and functioning within the framework of fourth generation warfare theory, which I generally regard as the modern version of the historic anarchist concept of "propaganda by the deed."

In the past two decades, ATS has built connections with every kind of fringe group imaginable, left, right, religious, counter-cultural, conspiratorial, or undefinable, as well as gaining mention in the international media (Europe, Russia, Middle East, Latin America), and in numerous academic books and articles.

Errors of ATS

Of course, most "errors of ATS" are really my own errors. There have three big ones:

1-grossly overestimating the actual interest of North American "radicals" in actual revolutionary activity, as opposed to participating in mere culture-war politics, with many "radicals" being more akin to fans of sports teams than revolutionaries,

2-grossly underestimating the entrenched nature of the "culture war" psychology which has only become more extreme over time, and which has been fueled by the media, corporations, and ruling class parties in order to prevent united popular resistance from emerging, a divide and conquer strategy,

3-failing to recognize how attempting to fold into other, larger movements have the effect of diluting the wider message and having been involved in the Left, Right, Third Position, and Alt-Right, it was the same effect each time,

The lessons I take from these errors are the following:

-The need for an independent pan-anarchism/anarcho-pluralism, that is, on one hand, an umbrella for all forms of anarchism, libertarianism, decentralism, anti-statism, anti-authoritarianism, prototypical philosophies and historical prototypes, cousin ideologies, blueprints or utopian colonies, voluntary or organic forms of social organization, or anarchistic tendencies within various philosophical, religious, ethical, cultural, or ethnic traditions, but which maintain a distinct identity from other philosophies, ideologies, or movements that do not have anarchism/libertarianism as their core foundations. Meanwhile, the evaluation of hybrid or external movements needs to take place on a situational basis in order to determine their fitness as allies or coalition partners. For this purpose, I developed what I call the "0 to 100 scale" with "total anarchy" being 100 and totalitarian ideologies (Nazism, fascism, Stalinism, Maoism, etc.) being a 0, and most political philosophies, institutions, or individuals being in the 30-70 range.

-About 15 years ago, I postulated the need for an "Anarchy First!" ideological and tactical framework and the importance of this position has been reaffirmed by subsequent experience. Historically, anarchist alliances with other movements have not turned out well, with the traditional alliance of anarchists with Marxism being Exhibit A. This problem was demonstrated once again in the Obama era by the growth of libertarianism (influenced by the Ron Paul presidential campaign), only for libertarianism to fracture into a microcosm of the culture war, with many supposed "anarchists" or libertarians eventually venturing off into authoritarian or statist ideologies (e.g. SJWism, Trumpism, Alt-Right/Lite, Antifa, Marxism).

-While my positions are mostly the same as the left-anarchists, more or less, with considerable variation in focus and emphasis, I understand the need to recognize every form of anarchism, with all ideological considerations being subordinated to the wider voluntaryist, decentralist, pluralist, anti-statist, federalist, mutualist, free associationist framework.

-While most anarchists and libertarians are aware of the dangers of right-wing authoritarianism and outright fascism (often the point of hysteria) a major weakness in anarchist thought is is lack of a thorough critique of authoritarian leftism beyond the mere rejection of the vanguard party/dictatorship of the proletariat Marxist-Leninist model. More anarchists need to familiarize themselves with the Nietzsche/Stirner critique of leftism as neo-religion, the Bakuninist critique of Marxism, the Burke/Dostoevsky critique of apocalyptic revolution, and the critiques of modernism, scientism, and therapeutism found in a range of thinkers as diverse as CS Lewis, Jacques Ellul, JRR Tolkien, TS Elliot, Aldous Huxley, Thomas Szasz, Michel Foucault, Max Weber, and (selectively) the thinkers of the Frankfurt School.

-The importance of the concept of withdrawing consent on the model outlined by Etienne de la Boetie in "Discourse on Voluntary Servitude" model, a lesson that was illustrated by the overthrow of the Soviet Union/Warsaw Pact (an empire which dissolved into 23 independent nations), as the ideal model of revolution, as opposed to the terroristic Jacobin model.

-In the past, there have been political paradigm shifts from the polytheist/god-emperor models of antiquity to the monotheist/divine right of kings models of the medieval era, to the rationalist/social contract theory of the Enlightenment. The next step is to reject the plutocratic managerial state associated with modern "democracy" toward voluntary association/anarchism.

-It is necessary to question pieties that few people, including anarchists, do not or barely question such as the sanctity of "democracy" (which was dismissed as mob role, ochlocracy, or "tyranny of the majority" by historic great thinkers such as Plato and Aristotle, early liberals like JS Mill, and early anarchists like Proudhon and Kropotkin ). Far too many left-anarchists are too accepting of the Prussian-model public administration state and regulatory government, which is a reactionary position adopted by progressive elites during the Industrial Revolution but which many "radicals" have regrettably absorbed. Far too many libertarians uncritically accept republican theory, which ever since the Roman Republic has been a mask for the class dictatorship of the merchant, banker, and plutocratic classes. It is also necessary to reject the reactionary/progressive false dichotomy and challenge the idea that modernity is synonymous with progress (it's more of a mixed bag).

During the 2020 pandemic, the global power elite has shown their hand like they did in 2008, indicating the need for a global revolution against globalization and the global power elite on the 1989 model (i.e. global pan-secessionism). The insurrections of 2020 indicate that the lumpenproletariat will continue to be the vanguard class as neo-feudalism becomes more entrenched and the size of the lumenproletariat continues to increase.

Anteroom of Our Own Extinction


If you want to deprive citizens of freedom of movement, freedom of assembly and the right to family life, there should be written reasons. They ask the department why they can hardly find such anywhere since the intervention was introduced in March. It is a mystery that hardly any Norwegian journalists have thought of asking this question. { } …that should be every journalist's first instinct when the government shuts down the country." Øyvind Håbrekke (Candidate for Krk in Trondelog, Norway)

I. Decrees the expulsion of Jews from the colony. { }
XXXII. The runaway slave, who shall continue to be so for one month from the day of his being denounced to the officers of justice, shall have his ears cut off, and shall be branded with the flower de luce on the shoulder : and on a second offence of the same nature, persisted in during one month from the day of his being denounced, he shall be hamstrung, and be marked with the flower de luce on the other shoulder. On the third offence, he shall suffer death. Louisiana Code Noir, 1724-1803

Any person who wilfully enters or uses any public premises or public vehicle or any portion thereof or any counter, bench, seat or other amenity or contrivance which has in terms of sub-section (1) been set apart or reserved for the exclusive use of persons belonging to a particular race or class, being a race or class to which he does not belong, shall be guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding fifty pounds or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding three months, or to both such fine and such imprisonment." Reservation of Separate Amenities Act. Parliament of South Africa, 1953

And by doing so, these devices are constantly reinvented as masks: as apparatuses of categorical transformation aimed at allowing humanity to persist at the brink of the end of the world as this is embodied by the spectre of the "next pandemic." Portrayed as the last barrier between us and the killer virus to come, "plague masks" ultimately transform us into a species inhabiting the anteroom of its own extinction.
Christos Lynteris (Medical Anthropology,Cross-Cultural Studies in Health and Illness Volume 37, 2018 – Issue 6)

One of the most important aspects of aesthetics, of the study of art at all, is that it teaches the viewer or reader how to see and experience more deeply, with more sensitivity, and this in turn (among other things) leads to the ability to recognize the fraudulent. In other words you come to recognize propaganda. It is almost the cultivating of a sub clinical intuitive skill, a sense when a narrative or an image seem counterfeit.

Along with this comes the ability to, at least partly, resist marketing campaigns and advertisers' manipulations. I have always felt the reading of the classics serve as a teflon shield for advertising.

Art and culture have more profound gifts than just a finely tuned 'bullshit meter'. But given the events of this last week, and of the entire year, as well, the loss of cultural education keeps coming back to me. The least-enrolled post grad program at U.S. universities is the study of the classics. History is very low, too, for any era. Business management is the most popular.

I often have thought that the loss of such studies today has had a genuinely deleterious effect. Certainly most big search engines, if you google post graduate programs in the classics, will return a variety of links about how such a degree has nearly zero economic reward attached.

This is now about a year into the pandemic and there have still been no debates, no public roundtables and no referendums. Nothing. Just decrees by the government. I honestly have given up trying to make sense of statistics, really. But a couple of things have not changed; the fatality rate if you catch Covid 19 is under 1% (and yes, case fatality is different than infectious mortality and that in turn is different from mortality rate). And depending on how it is being counted, it is often a good deal less than that. And yet the entire planet has been subjected to severe restrictions on travel, and coerced to follow pseudoscientific behaviour like mask wearing and social distancing. Today in many places there is what amounts to martial law. Police or national guard patrol the streets after dark. Many countries have banned public events, closed restaurants and nightclubs, and limited any public gatherings. Many schools remain closed or only partially open.

The economic consequences of these non-debated government policies have been catastrophic. In the U.S. something like 60 million jobs have been lost, many never to return. A hundred and fifty thousand restaurants have gone bankrupt. Only one in three museums will ever reopen. In San Francisco they decided NOT to count the numbers of new homeless. No reason was given but one can guess. The homeless situation in the U.S., in big cities in particular, was critical even before the pandemic. Now the numbers are unprecedented. Not even during the 'Great Depression' was there anything like the current level of those without basic shelter.

Food insecurity is at a crisis level. Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the US, estimates over 50 million people go hungry every night including something close to twenty million children.

Since mid-March 2020, numerous surveys have documented unprecedented levels of food insecurity that eclipse anything seen in recent decades in the United States, including during the Great Recession. Over the past five years, US Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates of food insecurity in the United States have hovered around 11% to 12%.

As of March and April 2020, national estimates of food insecurity more than tripled to 38% In a national survey we fielded in March 2020 among adults with incomes less than 250% of the 2020 federal poverty level (based on thresholds from the US Census), 44% of all households were food insecure including 48% of Black households, 52% of Hispanic households, and 54% of households with children. American Public Heath Association (Dec 2020)

And yet, congress just passed another defense budget increase. According to Defense News

the final version of the 2020 defense appropriations bill, part of a broad $1.4 trillion spending deal to finalize federal spending for 2020 and avert a government shutdown. The defense bill would provide $738 billion.

Almost one in three households suffers hunger, regularly. Almost half of black and hispanic households. Households with children are most vulnerable to the government policies. So half of the kids in the U.S. have inadequate nutrition. Half will suffer long term developmental problems, almost guaranteed.

So, given that there are countless medical professionals around the world who question the effectiveness of Covid policy by government, who questions the World Health Organization and CDC? One would think there would be a heated and exhaustive discussion about how to proceed. Once it was clear that this was not a particularly fatal virus, there should have been wide and far-reaching debate. But there was none.

And who are the authorities who dictate these policies? This also remains unclear. The head of the WHO is Dr.Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. But the face of the pandemic is Anthony Fauci. Now his role is also a bit unclear.

Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). He has held that position since 1984. It is unclear why he is the official advisor to presidents.

But, the point is that Bill Gates controls forty percent of the WHO. So, take Norway, where I live. Who advises the PM? Or advises her health minister? And it's worth noting that the health minister is Bent Høie, from the ruling party, a conservative business-friendly party.

Here is the wiki entry on Mr Høie…

Høie was born in Randaberg. He studied law at University of Bergen in 1991 and also attended the Norwegian School of Hotel Management from 1991-93.

Well, I guess Hotel management is as good a background as any to make life and death decisions about pandemics. One assumes the WHO and/or the CDC send advisors to talk to the Minister of Health. But I am only guessing.

My point is that the decision-making process is utterly opaque. Nobody seems to have a clear idea from where, exactly, the policy of lockdown (the quarantining of healthy people is, as far as I can tell, utterly new) originated, or where the marketing and obvious fearmongering came from.

For there has been a clear marketing apparatus in play, with all the mask adverts, the social distancing, etc. And worth mentioning is that the eco outcry about plastic straws, a genuine issue, really, suddenly receded and now, in the hysteria of mask wearing, the environment has had to absorb 9 billion single-use cloth and plastic masks.

The entire global economy is teetering on collapse. And this was intentional. This is because of governmental actions, not because of a virus. Of course, western economies have been teetering since 2008, if not before.

I'm not an economist, but this is the point where one must look at "The Great Reset".

Most of you have heard of it, its been on the cover of TIME magazine, and that photo of Klaus Schwab and his Vulcan unitard suit has cropped up across all social media platforms. The short version (for a long and exhaustive and insightful version see Cory Morningstar here) is that Schwab and his friends at the World Economic Forum have this idea, clothed in perfect green attire, to "reset" the economies of the West (or of the world).

The word 'reset' is interesting. Who came up with that I wonder? It feels very computer-ish and futuristic, and optimistic! And while much is made of certain aspects (natural capital, social capital, a new deal for nature, social impact bonds, etc) the reality is that the capitalist system, in the hands of the richest at any given moment (or we can say the ruling class), drive corrections to the market. This helps consolidate wealth at the top, or transfer more to the top.

And that is what this is, with the difference being that the plan is more about the destruction of markets, the destruction of competition, and the hyper monopolization of nearly everything. It entails a good deal of AI fantasy, but it also means a digitalization of currency (so no grey economy, no borrowing from friends, no under the table work) and a massive increase in surveillance and tracking. All of this is helped by the lockdown policies, the so-called 'Reset' would likely be stillborn if not for the reaction to Covid.

Allow me to insert HERE a European Commission statement regarding Covid19.

Now the new head of the European Commission is Ursula von der Leyen. Remember that much of the Reset is driven by the ruling elite of Europe and North America. And these people share common values and goals. Here is a brief biographical sketch on Ms von der Leyen…

"Von der Leyen's father's grandparents were the cotton merchant Carl Albrecht (1875–1952) and Mary Ladson Robertson (1883–1960), an American who belonged to a plantation owning family of the southern aristocracy from Charleston, South Carolina.

Her American ancestors played a significant role in the British colonization of the Americas, and she descends from many of the first English settlers of Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Barbados, and from numerous colonial-era governors.

Among her ancestors were Carolina governors John Yeamans, James Moore, Robert Gibbes, Thomas Smith and Joseph Blake, Pennsylvania deputy governor Samuel Carpenter, and the American revolutionary and lieutenant governor of South Carolina James Ladson.The Ladson family were large plantation owners and her ancestor James H. Ladson owned over 200 slaves by the time slavery in the United States was abolished; her relatives and ancestors were among the wealthiest in British North America in the 18th century, and she descends from one of the largest British slave traders of the era, Joseph Wragg."

I will return to why this has relevance. But I will only say here that all of the faces fronting for the Green New Deal, and the Reset, are wealthy, from lineages of extreme wealth and position. Today's theme is 'class'.

I can tell you only what I think Schwab and his colleagues want from this project. Let's look at what is not going to return to normal after the lockdown.

Commercial airlines are going bust, and those that are still alive have drastically cut routes and have limited their service. The days of cheap flights to warm beaches is gone, I suspect, for good. Vacations will be limited and travel limited (well, unless you are very rich like Gates and Schwab and Ms von der Leyen and Prince Charles and Jeff Bezos et al).

There are now sixty million people out of work in the U.S. The inevitability of the Universal Basic Income is pretty clear. The question is how much does one mean by basic?

Here I think one might do a quick history overview of apartheid South Africa, of the sugar plantations of the 18th century in the Caribbean or, well, the Nazi work camp system. The new capitalism that is imagined (and look, feel free to call it post-capitalism , or woke feudalism or whateverthefuckever you want) has more in common with the aforementioned systems of servitude and slavery than it does with anything else. It is class struggle, as Marx emphasized. Jobs won't be coming back. There will be a gigantic surplus population.

And already one sees the gradual coalescing of a new caste system. People deemed 'important' are allowed to go places and few questions are asked if they violate social distancing or mask wearing. The new social apartheid, which began as a pseudoscientific method for disease control, has now, in the brief span of a year, become a defacto class segregation. The rich are exempt. Here is an article from the New York Post (Aug 15th):

Meanwhile, billionaire David Geffen has been hanging on his yacht, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are cruising Greece in another yacht after receiving "honorary" citizenship, Facebook overlord Mark Zuckerberg has been trolling the waters off Hawaii in a $12,000 surfboard, Jeff Bezos and his lady friend have been (multiple) house-hunting, buying up millions of dollars in property in Los Angeles to build a compound while traveling via private jet to several cities around the country, former Mayor Bloomberg splashed out $45 million on a Colorado compound (joining a host of other billionaires buying in that state as well as Montana and Wyoming); and others are spending millions to buy citizenship in "safe" countries like New Zealand.

That 'compound' remark is worth noting. For this is the future for much of America. Gated compounds for the aristos and the dirty, squalid, infected world for the proles. And look, gated communities with private security have been in existence for forty years. Only now the separation has deeper implications.

Of course, football can continue in both the US and UK, though basketball has been more strictly limited (the perception is, of course, that basketball is an urban game and in a league over 70% black).

It is amazing how these strictly-enforced behavioural rules are relaxed for the amusements of the court. The rich can pretty much do whatever they want. Literally none of the rules apply to them. There is a middle tier of affluent, those deemed necessary, for the moment anyway, who get to move around more easily. For the millions now without income the restrictions will be quite acute.

So, back to the Reset for a moment. I keep returning to the slave economies of times past because this is increasingly what capitalism has been trending toward. The sugar plantations of the Caribbean used slave labour. Imported from Africa. They sold that raw product in markets of the metropole, to world markets. But on the plantation only master and slave relations existed. And this is, in one sense, what is being normalized today. Slave relations. And like the gulf Monarchies who use 'guest' workers (slaves, literally), Americans are close already to being guest workers in their own country.

And like the Apartheid laws in South Africa, certain castes (replacing race in this case) cannot go to the private beach of Mark Zukerberg. Or these days, often, any beach at all.

It's worth noting that the old 19th Century industrialist tycoons eventually became huge philanthropists. Carnegie, Mellon, Peabody, Rockefeller even. They endowed education, built libraries and hospitals. Today's tycoons create deceptive Green projects that are really just more wealth-amassing schemes to displace indigenous people, steal land and property, and help sell and normalize the police state.

Students throughout California are now stuck at home in hot, crowded rooms that occasionally fill with wildfire smoke. 19% of these students are English language learners and almost 13% of them have disabilities. Every day on Zoom they fall more and more behind both academically and socially. In Los Angeles Unified, the state's largest district, students are receiving 90-170 minutes of daily live instruction (depending on their age), after which they are expected to do independent work. Compared to the traditional six or seven-hour school day, online education is laughably inadequate. In real time, teachers and families are watching important developmental windows close for vulnerable children. Meanwhile the California Democratic Party and its affiliates tout virtual schooling as a solution for mitigating COVID-19 transmission" Alex Gutentag (The Bellows)

Gutentag also notes that the California governor sends his kids to a private school with in-person learning. Caste.

Not to mention that many children in the U.S. now live in highly-stressed homes. Over forty million people are at risk of eviction because of unpaid back rent. None of these homes can afford adequate food. They certainly cannot afford health care.

What happens when a child gets sick in today's America? I suspect for hundreds of thousands they will, at best, get inconsistent attention from volunteer medical workers — unless there is a lockdown in effect. Then they get nothing.

As I say, this brutal reorganization of the economy bears no small similarity to a slave economy — but it is being sold to the public by pretending it is this new, technology-driven Reset. (Own nothing and be happy).

What exactly does the government plan to do with those sixty million unemployed Americans? What does the UK plan? or Germany or France? Or anywhere? The stimulus package went mostly to big corporations. And media and state propaganda continue to provide endless distractions (see assault on the Capitol, and anything to do with Trump).

There is a clear belief in and emphasis on technology in all this. On AI and robotics and transhumanism (sic). This belief in AI to solve almost everything is reaching levels of delusion that many people, even critics of the Reset, seem to ignore.

So how is it that people have so passively surrendered their rights? The answer is complex.

First, the idea of cooperation and grass roots organizing have been relentlessly disparaged in the media for decades. When unions were effectively destroyed under Reagan, along with them went the last vestiges of collectivity. Hollywood has always made films about individual triumph, almost never about revolutionary organizing. I think a large number of people today, even those skeptical, suffer from a kind of inertia. And this too has been built into the system. And it may well be an aspect of screen habituation.

But before that, people are afraid. The unseen enemy, the invisible virus, the plague, an enemy that brings fevers and suffering, sickness and death. But that is only a part of the problem. The Reset is presenting a future of total control for the ruling class.

Why would anyone support this madness? Well, first, because they are being sold on the idea that it's green, and that THEY, themselves, will be in control. Sort of. And second, they have limited options.

In a way the long shadow of the Reagan years are evident here. The destruction of unions, coupled with the loss of real public education, has allowed for the rootless, lonely and isolated 'individual' of contemporary America. And the utter absence of a real leftist party.

But it's true for much of Europe, too. Here in Norway the wearing of masks is prevalent in 'high risk' red zones. And one still can't drive across the border to Sweden. I see enormous stress indicators in children. Even in my children. And they are young. Nobody feels happy. Isolation does not promote happiness.

Still, how likely is it that this Reset works? I think this question is ignored somewhat and therefore we need to ask 'for whom does it work'? While there has been enormous amounts of great stuff written about Schwab and the WEF I must digress a moment (although its not really a digression, but only appears to be):

There is a basic problem with AI, deep learning, and natural language and, while it is about language, it applies to other fields as well. This is the Frame problem. And the Frame problem is intwined with the problem of time.

NOTE: The Frame problem "is the challenge of representing the effects of action in logic without having to represent explicitly a large number of intuitively obvious non-effects. But to many philosophers, the AI researchers' frame problem is suggestive of wider epistemological issues." – Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy – ed.

The Frame problem is about relevance, and that the outlier issues, while statistically rare, are actually what distinguish 'smart' people from 'not smart' people. Machine learning, AI, can do a lot of things, but to over-applaud its achievements without admitting its profound limitations is going to lead to some catastrophic mistakes and, no doubt, human tragedies.

And then there is this.

AI works great in labs, with toys and controlled environments, but a lot less well in the real world.

So far the solution for the new AI cheerleaders is to make the real world like a lab. In one sense, Singapore, with extensive use of AI via a very authoritarian state apparatus, has already done this. China is a more complex discussion, and wanting to avoid any idea of an 'Oriental plot', I'm just going to take a Mulligan.

The ruling class anywhere is exempted in all such examples. The majority of humans will be treated as rats in a lab test. Not even rats, but toys. In other words, highly, if not totally, expendable.

But the problems with the Reset, and with all of the Green New Deal projects, are that they operate in a computer model-based world that is rather significantly divorced from real life, and certainly, intentionally, disregards class (and caste).

There are also new ideas like 'human capital bonds'. It sounds complex but this is just a more draconian loan arrangement where, if you default, for example while going to medical school, even if you graduate you wont be allowed to practice. Everything in this new economy gives people less power and less autonomy.

The issues with all AI and with the advanced technology praised by the Reset are philosophical more than scientific. Part of the problem is that the real world is enormously complex. Like weather prediction, anything more than six or seven days out is all but impossible. There are too many unknown factors and variables. This truth can be extrapolated to just about any real world problem. But for all the growing skepticism about AI, the proponents (who know these problems) continue to propagandize the benefits and the infinite possibilities of an AI-dominated future.

The most absurd are the transhumanists. Given how little is actually known about consciousness, and considering that all AI is just math, it seems almost infantile to think we are going to learn better with implants, or work more efficiently. Alongside that is the issue of prediction. Perhaps this was built into the Enlightenment, but what Adorno and Horkheimer came to call 'instrumental thinking' is now embraced unquestioningly by the new peddlers of AI.

Back to the philosophical issue. Wittgenstein famously said:

If a lion could speak, we would not understand it.

Language is part of a shared horizon of the world (as Steven Gambardella put it). Computers can simulate thought, but only up to a point. (See Chinese Box experiment)

The whole modern conception of the world is founded on the illusion that the so-called laws of nature are the explanations of natural phenomena. Thus people today stop at the laws of nature, treating them as something inviolable, just as God and Fate were treated in past ages. Ludwig Wittgenstein (Tractatus)

AI is the Alchemy of the 21st century. The new Reset, driven by the high net worth figures from Wall Street, Silicon Valley, or the Royal Houses of Europe, is a fantasy. But a fantasy that is part of a long class struggle.

And at a certain point it doesn't matter, not totally, if AI works.

If errors occur in computation, or in facial recognition, or in food allotments to the projected new slave class, the billionaires on their yachts wont mind. If the implant in my brain crashes during a scheduled update, that's just one less servant to feed.

And there is also a clear de-population agenda at work in all this. Certainly David Attenborough and Baroness Goodall are big on getting rid of the indigenous people in Africa. Nearly all of the pro-Reset leadership believe in depopulation. Prince Charles, another who prefers he keep his privilege. It is not an accident that an Ursula von der Leyen is running point for the EU now. A descendent of the biggest slave trader in Europe at one time. It speaks to exactly why a Hugo Chavez, for example, so offended these people. Or an Evo Morales. Remember it was not so long ago that the U.S. worked to control and neutralize African independence movements. While Cuba and the U.S.S.R. helped to support those movements. Dick Cheney until the 90s called Mandela a terrorist.

This intentional demolition of capitalism, as we have come to know it, is designed to enclose populations via surveillance, digital tagging, health passports, and no doubt much more. Again, if the digital tag doesn't work, so what? I happen to think much of this ruling class dream is doomed to fail on the technical level. The problem is that it quite possibly will work on a political and control level.

Depopulation is rebranded eugenics, and nothing else. The royals of Europe have always longed for a return to what, for them, was colonial grandeur. The fantasy future is nostalgia for the ruling class. The dream can be traced back to what the Empire has always done. They destroy anything democratic and/or socialist. They support any dictator at any time because they believe they deserve more and more of what is better. Let them eat cake.

They have crushed independence and autonomy for all of the 20th century and now into the 21st. The Mau Mau uprising in Kenya, the assassination of Lumumba, Vietnam, Indonesia and Suharto, El Salvador ( U.S. support for Roberto D'Aubuisson, a fervent admirer of Hitler), or Nicaragua, or Chile, the former Yugoslavia. One could go on and on and on. The U.S. support for Papa Doc in Haiti, for Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. Nowhere, at any time, has the Imperialist and colonial-loving ruling class EVER supported democracy or equality. Never, nowhere, not once.

The problem is about perception. Take one of the biggest NGOs in the entire New Deal for Nature; Conservation International. These people work with the WWF, with Club of Rome, and We Mean Business. These are very wealthy business ventures. Now, Conservation International also finances the Greta Thunberg films.

HERE is their board of directors, from their web page.

Perception. But Northrup Grummon… and Riverstone Holdings. The first is a major player in the defense industry, the industry that just got a trillion dollars, give or take, from the U.S. Government. The second is a private equity firm focused on leveraged buyouts. Arnhold LLC is an investment management company. Banco BTG Pactual S/A is an investment management company and consultant to corporate trading. You get the idea. These are the people who have helped further inequality, aided environmental destruction, and helped plunder the assets of countless countries. The cynicism is jaw dropping, but many people just see Greta, see Green New Deal and assume this NGO is an innocent well-intentioned and 'woke' eco-venture.

WHY would anyone think that suddenly these people are out to save the planet?

Well, they might think they ARE saving the planet, but not for you and me. For themselves.

Population Health, Human Capital Bonds, and Black America


The following document was prepared as a briefing paper for a group working in the population health arena. The intention was to revisit the breadth of my research with a specific focus placed on what it means for Black America. A similar document could have been written for the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. This material is currently under review pending future distribution in a more digestible format. I am long form, always. Since this document was referenced in a panel discussion I recently participated in and was distributed to a wider audience, I feel comfortable sharing it with you here. Please know that this is a work in progress.

Briefing Document:

We find ourselves in this season of the shortest days and longest nights. Yet in these long nights we are graced with guiding stars and hands to hold in the darkness. I have heavy information to share here. But first I want you to know that we were made for these times.

On a knife's edge, teetering between sacred and profane, I know in my heart that through fortitude and moral courage humanity will prevail. Black America has lived for generations under this nation's broken social contract. With the Fourth Industrial Revolution pushing to make natural humans obsolete, many more are awakening to the lived experience of Black and Brown America. This nation grew its power on broken treaties and stolen bodies. Now is a moment of profound reckoning to face off against the threat of artificial intelligence stealing the rights of ALL sovereign beings.

Who better to lead the world towards healing and justice than Black and Brown people? Consider WEB DuBois' "Black Reconstruction," the general strike, the power of Black bodies to throw a wrench in the gears of anti-life machines. What does that look in this new arena – the World Economic Forum's Internet of Bodies? In a future run for billionaires by robots, the rich won't want the labor of the masses after we've created the digital prison and trained our mechanized replacements. Instead, they will demand total compliance as debt instruments navigating their technocratic control grid.

My friends that is NOT our destiny. In the spirit of Marimba Ani, our task is to keep the circle unbroken as the disaster of the Great Reset unfolds. Black America must stand in its full power and recognize the true nature, the magnitude, of this struggle. That struggle is against digital chattel slavery tied to global financial markets, the Internet of Bodies, human capital bonds, and smart cities running on layered digital contractual agreements.

In the decade following the global crash of the housing market, which in no small part laid the foundation for what is rolling out now, investors, academics, and non-profits developed pilots testing outcomes-based government contracts that would enable private interests to invest in social service delivery. This idea goes back at least to the mid 1990s with social entrepreneur Steve Rothschild and economist Arthur Rolnick of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve.

Advances in digital identity, e-wallets, automated data-capture; Ethereum smart contracts, artificial intelligence, behavioral analytics, machine vision, and bipartisan support for "evidence-based" results are allowing new markets in human capital finance to finally come online at scale. The Davos crowd calls it stakeholder capitalism, and it is aligned to New America's Bretton Woods II impact investing agenda. What it aims to do is pull the global "un-banked" into the marketplace – not as independent economic actors (homo economicus), but rather as commodities, livestock to be managed by emerging Fourth Sector Benefit Corporations.

There will be an alignment with communities of faith, as they will be tasked with processing the stakeholder capitalists' "assets" with approved digital "solutions" on dashboards. This is consistent with the Vatican's foray into "inclusive capitalism," and builds on three social impact investing conferences co-hosted with the University of Notre Dame's Business School.

You see history isn't past; it is very present. What the Black community is facing – the plan to feed the poor into AI algorithms to profit those who are hoarding immense wealth – must be understood as a direct extension of the Doctrine of Discovery. Dr. Justin Leroy speaks eloquently to this in a 2017 lecture given at the Whitney Museum of Art for an exhibit on debt that examined social impact bonds, "Race, Finance, and the Afterlife of Slavery." That papal bull asserted Black and Brown bodies, non-Christians, and their lands were to be viewed as assets and could thus be claimed by "enlightened" white colonists.

The same dynamic is in play with blockchain identity. Rather than double entry book keeping, which under-pinned maritime trade in stolen bodies, the world is shifting to decentralized cryptographic ledgers.  It's the same depravity, but in a shiny, new wrapper. Keep your eye on London. Vinay Gupta says blockchain law will be based in maritime law. We are entering a world structured by unseen digital contracts designed to advantage financiers. What will the jurisdictions be for lives forced into the cloud? What are the rights of digital twins? How does one hold a Decentralized Autonomous Organization accountable to the rule of law? There are so many questions that remain unanswered. These are the things Davos hopes will stay hidden until their plan is locked firmly in place.

Examples of blockchain ID social impact projects include the Amply blockchain identity app for toddlers attending daycare in Cape Town; blockchain babies in Tanzania where compliance with pre-natal appointments can be tracked for "impact;" DAPP blockchain software that uses machine vision and videos to trigger tokenized payments after documentation of proper parenting in poor households is uploaded; and the blockchain birth certificate program the state of Illinois launched with Evernym.

What I am laying out here might sound like science fiction, but it's not. These efforts are backed by the United Nations in coordination with World Bank's Human Capital Project. The World Bank has developed "smart" social impact bonds on blockchain, call bond-i. Many of these technologies, including retinal scan payments and digital currency have been developed using refugee communities through development aid channels. All the pieces were there waiting for the right catalyst. That catalyst is Covid. We must recognize this "totalitarian" software-as-a-service is now in play and could end up anywhere in the world in an instant – wherever there is money to be made.

To the tender ministrations of Ronald Cohen's Social Finance; George Overholser's Third Sector Capital Partners; Harvard Kennedy School's Government Performance Lab; Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society; New Profit's impact investing arm America Forward; the human capital innovators at ReadyNation and Council For A Strong America; add seed money from the Social Innovation Fund and the Social Impact Partnerships Pay For Result Act. Take that combination and pour it into the nation's 8,700+ "Opportunity Zones," where thanks to the decimation of the global economy the world's largest asset holders are able to scoop up property and business in low income neighborhoods at rock bottom prices, and if they hold them for a decade they never have to pay capital gains taxes. Almost as if it had been planned.

No provisions are in place to protect local communities. Black families, who could be forced out by displacement or managed as impact commodities will have no protection under the law. Those who remain will likely become fodder for social entrepreneur wrap around services. Such programs have been perfected over thirty years in the Harlem Children's Zone by Geoffrey Canada and George Soros's former fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller with financial support from Paul Tudor Jones, hedge fund billionaire who got his start trading cotton futures and founded the Robin Hood Foundation. His foundation underwrote an entire book of equations linking social investments to economic rates of return. Feel free to browse all 168 pages published here. None of this is about eliminating poverty, but rather refining ways of growing it steadily and managing it profitably.

These arrangements, which have been set up as social impact bonds and pay for success deals, are designed to be data-driven. It is the "impact metrics" that enable the world's richest to profit off misery. The general idea is that social problems are assigned a cost, which creates an offset that is used to fund "evidence-based" "solutions." The prison industrial complex, built to brutally extract profit from the Black bodies that were excessed by the previous phase of globalization, is one of the largest cost-offsets. But chronic illnesses like asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and lead poisoning are big ones, too. The premise is that if you "fix" a poor person before they become incarcerated, diabetic, underemployed, or mentally-ill, you reduce the cost to tax-payers, and the investor can take a slice of the cost differential as a return on investment. Philanthropists, acting on behalf of finance and technology interests, fund academics at elite institutions to formulate "human capital" equations that justify this predatory enterprise.

Examples include:

On the basis of such equations global investors are financing data-driven "solutions" for social problems with the understanding that they will continue to make money on poverty, misery and trauma as long as it remains well managed. In addition the people being run through such systems are turned into commodities for mining, not for their well-being, but to remake them as interoperable data on dashboards for investment portfolios. This is where we have landed. If we don't resist now, our fate will be sealed. Life reduced to metrics stored by the National Interoperability Collaborative by Stewards of Change for artificial intelligence predictive profiling.

The World Economic Forum makes it very clear that through artificial intelligence, quantum computing, 6G, and synthetic biology the global elite intend to reengineer humanity to their own twisted ends. They envision an exclusive resort world meant for the rich and their robots. The masses, useless eaters, shall be disposed of, but profitably through creative debt structuring. The next "big short" won't be toxic bundled mortgages, but rather human capital futures comprised of poor toddlers, returning citizens, the disabled and the elderly.

Society is staring down high-tech eugenics, and it is being sold to Black America as disruptive innovation. The chains meant to bind families into this new economic system as tradable data commodities are biometric health passports. The Commons Project, a partnership of the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Economic Forum (WEF), intends to control the masses using real-time health data that will dictate rights to access work, education, and employment. Digital vaccination records will, in effect, become slave passes. One of the architects of the system, JP Pollak, is based at Cornell-Tech with another Commons Project board member and Internet of Things pioneer Deborah Estrin. I doubt many people realize that our future mobility options are being plotted in swank LEED certified buildings in the middle of the East River.

Having waged military and economic warfare against the peoples of the world, having looted the earth's resources and saddled the poor with insurmountable debt, imperial interests are closing in on the final frontier, taking over our bodies cell by cell with mRNA "therapeutics." Those who won't submit to joining this population level bioengineering program may soon find themselves locked out of a normal life.

For centuries the Black community has resisted an unrelenting colonial project.  Now we are faced with the "software of life," settler-colonialism in single-use bar-coded syringes. Colonization shrunk to the cellular level. We must face the very real prospect of a cyborg future where natural humans are wiped from the face of the earth.

We have no choice other than to do everything in our power to derail such plans. We will stand not only against the merger of man with machine, but against the privatization of public benefit systems as pay for success investment opportunities. Attempts to defund the police and reform the judicial system will be for nothing unless we see that the end game is to turn the entire world into a digital jail run on blockchain from space using satellites and 5G. They want to track the "useless eaters" like livestock, and monitor us in the panopticon of smart cities using phones with vaccination passports (slave passes) and eventually wearable and implantable (chip) technologies.

When James Bullard, the CEO of the St. Louis Federal Reserve, called for testing every person every day this spring, you have to wonder if he was thinking about Graphene biosensors that transmit health data in real time to smart sensing environments. In this brave new world of pandemic preparedness, health security finance, vaccine bonds, and Goldman Sachs' lockdown indices, the central banks intend to lay claim to bodies and minds.

They've been priming the children already, awarding skills points and badges for excellence in STEM and cyber-security (GCHQ) and robotics (Lego). They earn good behavior scrip while consuming "personalized" AI curricula funded by defense contractors. UNICEF is backing "innovative" educational software where children wouldn't even have to know how to read – they would code using gestures in virtual reality headsets with haptic controllers. Look at the branding of Nubian VR that UNICEF is rolling out in Kenya. These African children are literally having their god given senses stolen from them and are being turned into batteries to power the hive mind of a completely militarized and dying planet. Deprived of history, humanities, art, music, sports, free play, and nature, the next generation will know no life outside of Google's box.

In the coming years, the billionaires intend to force the masses, who've been pushed out of their previous jobs by the lockdowns, to code this biosecurity state into reality. The plan is for re-skilling for Fourth Industrial Revolution industries be done through Income Sharing Agreements (ISAs) in which people sign contracts to have their future wages garnished to pay back "investors" in their training. In 2018, David Cooper of Purdue Research Foundation, participated in a panel on ISAs at the annual Arizona State University – Global Silicon Valley conference. He was very clear that they anticipated the opening of a very large equity market in securitized debt for higher education (now post-Covid re-training, framed as lifelong learning). The platform to securitize the debt is Edly. Edly was co-founded by Christopher Ricciardi, the grandfather of Collateralized Debt Obligations. As you may remember it was CDOs that played a major role crashing the global economy the last time around. Once again history is not in the past, it is very much present. Each time to poor get played by the powerful.

Governor Jack Murphy, former Goldman Sachs executive, is rolling out an ISA program now in New Jersey in the form of Career Impact Bonds. This effort pairs nicely with United Way's ALICE (Assets Limited Income Constrained Employed – the working poor) campaign, which originated out of their Northern New Jersey office. There is considerable overlap between the United Way and the Federal Reserve branches on the topic of fin-clusion (financial inclusion). In fact James Bullard, the test-every person-every day guy, was former board chair of United Way USA while serving as CEO of the St. Louis Federal Reserve branch. I don't suppose it's any coincidence that two hedge fund billionaires, John Overdeck and David Siegel who have heavily subsidized ed-tech software and workforce-aligned education programs through their foundations, live in that part of the state, too.

The global reskilling will be done under the banner of a Green New Deal, a faux-rebellion staged to profit corporate masters using the best behavioral engineering money can buy. It will involve deployment of massive embedded sensor networks that will transmit information and create a layered, digital, "mixed-reality." Given how racialized the training data is, it is frightening to imagine what is will be like to navigate this "new" terrain built on a foundation of redlining, environmental racism, state violence, and deprivation.

The human capital commodities markets run on data. For this reason we must agree to push education, medicine, therapy and other services into the cloud, so data analysts can gather the metrics in service of "pay for success." We are supposed to ignore the fact that children in Congo are mining the cobalt for the devices and that the energy and water requirements needed to run server farms are unsustainable. We are supposed to overlook the e-waste. We are not meant to know that while our children are being put into artificial intelligence feedback loops (sold as "personalized learning") on HP laptops, another division of the company is running biometric border control in Palestine. They don't want us to make those connections, that this machine that is "learning" our children in intimate detail, is fabricated by a company that will likely running future geo-fencing and facial recognition operations for the biosecurity state.

Picture life as a Pokémon-Go experience. Niantic and the Knight Foundation describe this as augmented cities. Now imagine a virtual fence, the kind you might use for a pet, adjusted in real time from a phone. To this mix add digital welfare benefits that are conditional and activated only upon demonstrated completion of assigned "self-improvement" tasks. Throw in low-cost mobile devices for digital wallets, stick QR codes in key locations, add drones and robot police dogs, slave patrols remade for mega-city asymmetrical warfare. In Australia they are already pitching the idea of "walk for the dole," and they have remade their disability benefits as tokens on blockchain. They call it "programmable money." Folks know it's always been about playing the game, but this new game is going to have a lot less wriggle room after they make money "smart."

This "social improvement" plan has been in the works for years, set up by the "Giving Pledge" signers, "The Good Club." The billionaires know what's best for you, and are going to "help" whether you like it or not. Once caught in their web of digital "social care" you'll be expected to submit to operant conditioning and digital nudges. They'll call it "social prescribing." They'll call it "cradle to career" pathways." They'll call it "continuum of care". But really, it's digital slavery, and they aim to harvest your life force, and that of your children, and send it to the cloud to be harvested by misers.

The billionaires are using Covid to attempt to sell this control system to Black America with soothing, progressive-sounding words like "equity," "inclusion," and "sustainability." If this sounds like a stretch, I encourage you to read this Harvard Business Review op-ed from April that advocates Macro Eyes satellite surveillance of African children tied to vaccine compliance.

We know colonial powers have used Africa as a sacrificial zone of extraction and cheap labor for centuries. Well, the new extractive industry, according to former Alphabet / Google chairman Eric Schmidt, is data. Black bodies are being targeted as primary sites of extraction under the next phase of globalization, Globalization 4.0. Schmidt should know. His Alphabet spin-off CityBlock was set up three years ago to coordinate health-related wrap around services for urban populations. They pitch "healthy communities," but their profit center must be understood within the larger framework of human capital finance tied to data profiling.

The plan is to turn social determinants of health into a weapon that will further oppress those most in need of housing, nutrition, employment, and education. They cover the big game (Sidewalk Labs, smart city infrastructure) and the small game (the NEST unit that controls your home environment). Eric Schmidt is working with Cuomo to "Reimagine New York," including vaccine mandates. The "show me your papers" digital control mechanism works only as far as you can require continuous upgrades to that Gates Foundation-backed "software of life."

All of this runs on health data, so Google's involvement with Michael Bloomberg, ambassador to the WHO, impact investor and major proponent of ed-tech and social prescribing, in the development of the Cornell-Technion campus on Roosevelt Island is important. Their intent is to manage us through our digital dust linked to our actions within smart environments. All of that dust feeds signals intelligence informing hedge fund artificial intelligence that will be betting for us and against us in the near future.

The human capital bond market program is running through the central banking system and is closely tied to the adoption of digital wallets designed hold all sorts of tokenized assets including currencies, civil records, public benefits, and even rights and privileges. The state of Illinois, home of the commodities futures market in Chicago, has already been toying with this concept, imagining the many ways they could use innovative technologies to further control the poor.

A 2018 report to the Illinois Blockchain Task Force advanced the idea of programmable food assistance vouchers that would incentivize approved food purchases. Now combine that with the Imperial College of London's spin off DNA nudge band, which supposedly aligns food items to your DNA, using samples gathered from Covid testing. Next combine food-tracking wearables with good behavior scrip, as is being used in the school-based Houston food pantry, and you see the trap being laid out piece by piece until the monstrous totality of it can be sprung on the Black community under the guise of keeping everyone "safe" and "healthy."

The economic devastation wrought by the lockdowns will make many people wards of the state. Housing and food insecurity will put families at risk of being accused of neglect. A particular concern given that many of them are required to have surveillance devices on in their homes all day as a condition of their child "attending" school. Then, through a combination of welfare to work policies, public private partnerships, and predatory income sharing agreements like New Jersey's Career Impact Bond program, they will reskill people as fodder for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The health passports are the gateway to creating digital civil registries that will eventually track public benefit access and indebtedness.

Reduced to collections of ones and zeros our individual and collective traumas will be run through algorithms and magically transformed into investment opportunities to be packaged as securities for human capital portfolios. These bonds will be aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and marketed as ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) compliant.

Criminalized poverty will put families on pathways of compulsory self-improvement. E-carceration takes on a whole new meaning in this era of the Internet of Bodies that is being advanced by the WEF. CoreCivic and Geo Group have already been shifting resources into social work, continuum of care. Their guards will be replaced by growing cadres of social workers, therapists, educators, and health care providers, agents of a corporate state.

Lives reduced to impact metrics feeding "pay for success" finance deals, deals that allow pension funds to say their investments are "socially-responsible." Very few realize that ESG investments aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are mostly about managing the poor as data. Goal 1 is poverty. Goal 2 is Hunger. Goal 3 is health. Goal 4 is education. No one stops to consider that creating profitable markets in poverty management is no way to solve poverty.

All of this is profoundly anti-life, the idea of using digital nudges coded into smart environments to shape our behaviors and compel us conform to a world whose rulers do not have our best interests at heart. Life is not a game for entertainment or profit. We have the right to say no, to revoke consent for ourselves and for future generations. We will not submit to e-government civil registries to be put on blockchain, a coffle for the twenty-first century. Our lives are not meant for social impact processing to remake us as compliant machines for industrially engineered society. That is not our destiny.

Take this stand for the children, the babies, and those yet unborn that they may remain grounded in the real world, not the digital one. With deep spirit refuse to accept the future being forced on the masses by a small group of sociopathic billionaires, a future that would have everyone predictively profiled as burdens on society so hedge funds can gamble our lives as futures commodities.

Dismantle the human capital bond markets plotted out in the aftermath of the last economic crash by the Federal Reserve, the United Way, pension funds, insurers, accounting firms, health management organizations, and banks. With a visceral understanding of the intergenerational trauma wrought by slavery and America's broken social compact, it is Black America that shine a light on the puppet masters advancing this program. It is rolling out because the Davos crowd has the money to buy off everyone. Electoral politics, non-profit institutions, and communities of faith are all under their thumb.

It is time to wake up to the reality that social entrepreneurship is about mining poverty for profit within a police state that is increasingly being run by artificial intelligence with drone surveillance. The Global Impact Investment Network and the Impact Management Project are calling the shots – over two thousand of the world's largest asset holders. Philanthropists like Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, Marc Benioff, Jeff Bezos, and Pierre Omidyar have created these destructive forms of innovative finance. It is called "Stakeholder Capitalism;" it operates out of Davos, and it intends to mine our lives to increase their wealth and power over the earth.

But we are David and in our hands we hold the pebbles that can take Goliath down. Think of Hercules, George Washington's cook at the President's House in Philadelphia, intentionally kept in slavery in a city of Free Blacks. He bided his time; he learned the ways of the machine; and then made his escape to freedom.

All of humanity, including the ancestors and the unborn are counting on us.

This is the moment.v

When Two Tribes Go to War: Reflections on Bertrand Russell’s Chilling Blueprint for Humanity


BERTRAND Russell's 1931 work, The Scientific Outlook, may be somewhat obscure in relation to his more famous philosophical works but one might be forgiven for imaging that it had been taken from the pages of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. Indeed, Huxley's own volume appeared several months later and is clearly influenced by Russell. The former, of course, had produced a work of fiction and the latter an entirely serious work aimed at the British intelligentsia.

A member of the notorious Fabian Society, an organisation which has involved itself in matters pertaining to social conditioning and mass control for the best part of a century, Russell was one of a number of leading twentieth-century ideologues who wished to clip the wings of a 'troublesome' working class. In short, he was a leading propagandist for the ruling elite and The Scientific Outlook is a eugenicist blueprint designed to help facilitate a more totalitarian society under the guise of humanitarian progress:

In like manner, the scientific rulers will provide one kind of education for ordinary men and women, and another for those who are to become holders of scientific power. Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented. Of these qualities probably contentment will be considered the most important. In order to produce it, all the researches of psycho-analysis, behaviourism, and biochemistry will be brought into play.

This was to involve separating boys and girls at the age of three and encouraging them to emulate their peers right down to the very last detail, thus eradicating every trace of individuality and securing absolute loyalty to a World State:

Initiative will be discouraged in these children, and insubordination, without being punished, will be scientifically trained out of them. Their education thought will be in great part manual, and when their school years come to an end they will be taught a trade. In deciding what trade they are to adopt, experts will appraise their aptitudes. […] As for the manual workers, they will be discouraged from serious thought: they will be made as comfortable as possible, and their hours of work will be much shorter than they are at present; they will have no fear of destitution or of misfortune to their children. […] If the youth is content to abandon his previous associates and to throw in his lot whole-heartedly with the rulers, he may, after suitable tests, be promoted, but if he shows any regrettable solidarity with his previous associates, the rulers will reluctantly conclude that there is nothing to be done with him except to send him to the lethal chamber before his ill-disciplined intelligence has had time to spread revolt. This will be a painful duty to the rulers, but I think they will not shrink from performing it.

This, remember, does not come from a work of fiction but a serious academic work. Those selected to become part of the ruling elite, on the other hand, would be encouraged to develop the kind of intelligence and will-power that strengthens the ranks of an existing hereditary class. More alarmingly, Russell proposed the creation of two distinct types:

Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organised insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.

Russell, like many other Fabians, wished to apply his dystopian vision to the entirety of humankind, but however chilling these initiatives sound – and let's not pretend that they are not already being widely implemented – I believe that a positive strain of rebellion nonetheless continues to endure and that Russell's nightmarish theory is undermined by a comparatively healthier version of two separate tribes that survives among life's great eccentrics and outsiders.

In Lucio's Confession (1913), written by the great Portuguese poet and novelist, Mário de Sá-Carneiro, a bohemian character by the name of Ricardo de Loureiro speaks at length to the book's narrator about his own unique traits:

In fact its singularity consists not in the fact that there are elements in it that cannot be found in normal lives, but in its lack of any of the elements that are thought to be common to all lives.

One might compare this startling originality to a bottle of superior wine that, whilst containing the surface traits that one may distinguish in lesser wines – texture or bouquet, for example – has none of the things one might ordinarily associate with wine itself. Perhaps a brand of great character and bearing can get by without a bottle to contain it, or even cope without the chattering opinions of a professional wine-taster?

At a time when the vast majority of people seem content to believe everything they hear in the mass media, it does appear that a small tribe of dissenters – almost a different species, it seems – is busy fulfilling Russell's prophecy in a way that would have led him to demand their immediate liquidation in the "lethal chamber".

Knowledge without Constraints: How Friedrich Hölderlin Overcame the Kantian-Fichtean Stranglehold


FRIEDRICH Hölderlin (1770-1843), who explored the mystical links between philosophy and poetry, was possibly the central figure among the Romantic thinkers.

Despite the fact that his brilliant and delicate mind eventually collapsed under the weight of its own innate sensitivity, resulting in Hölderlin spending the final thirty-six years of his life at a lonely tower in the university town of Tübingen, in his youth he had become an accomplished poet and one of the most important progenitors of Absolute Idealist philosophy.

Hölderlin's work later influenced that of Martin Heidegger (1889-1976), Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969), Michel Foucault (1926-1984) and Jacques Derrida (1930-2004). Hölderlin had taken it upon himself to move beyond the Critical Idealism of Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814) and he achieved this in four crucial ways. Frederick C. Beiser explains:

First, it had to deny that subject-object identity consists in the self-consciousness of the ego alone, and it had to affirm instead that it exists only in the single universal substance, of which the subjective and objective are only appearances. Second, it had to dispute the purely regulative status of the absolute and to stress its constitutive role; in other words, it had to contend that the absolute is not only an ethical ideal but an existing reality. Third, it had to transcend the Kantean-Fichtean limits on knowledge and to claim cognition of the absolute. Fourth, it had to hold that nature is not a projection of consciousness, still less an obstacle to the will, but an autonomous organism having independent reality and inherent rationality. (German Idealism: The Struggle Against Subjectivism, 1781–1801, p.375)

These four distinguishing features enabled Absolute Idealism to overcome the errors of its philosophical predecessors, and Hölderlin – who shared rooms with Friedrich Schelling (1775-1854) and G.W.F Hegel (1770-1831) – was busy laying the groundwork for a new school of Western European thought at a time when Hegel was still a Kantian and both Schelling and Novalis (1772-1801) were paying lip-service to Fichte. It is not for nothing that Hölderlin is often regarded as the father of Absolute Idealism and it is he who first encouraged Schelling and Hegel to embark on a three-year collaboration between 1801 and 1804.

Although Hölderlin is usually remembered for his mystical poetry, philosophy was always a major interest during his time at Jena. Indeed, during the course of an October 13th, 1796, letter he told his step-brother that one

must study philosophy even when you have no more money than to buy a lamp and oil, and even when you have no other time than from midnight to the crack of dawn.

Nonetheless, Hölderlin's equal fascination with poetry gave him an advantage in the sense that he sought to understand the relationship between the two. By way of his novel, Hyperion (1797), as well as the unfinished drama, The Death of Empedocles (1797-1800), Hölderlin concluded that poetry must have sovereignty over philosophy on the basis that aesthetic sense must triumph over reason. Furthermore, he believed that poetry could express what philosophy cannot and that the insights of the latter were only accessible if one employed the aesthetic sense of the former.

Fichte's own Idealism, if we may even regard it as such, had stripped nature of its mystery and sublimity and this led Hölderlin to make nature an end in itself. Unlike Fichte, therefore, he did not view nature as a mere representation that had no reality beyond our own comprehension, but as something that exists in its own right. Even Kant and Schiller, Hölderlin argued, had failed to recognise the function of beauty in a metaphysical capacity and this meant that it was reduced to a form of pleasure. For Hölderlin, beauty was not an appearance but the harmonic structure of all reality. In The Death of Empedocles, the author uses the example of Empedocles himself to epitomise the crass Subjectivism of Fichean philosophy. Although the Ancient Greek thinker sets himself up as a God, he is forced to realise that he is but a mere part of something greater and that by surrendering himself to nature – rather than seeking to dominate it – man finally realigns himself with the Absolute.

The importance of Hölderlin to the development of Absolute Idealism does not merely lie in his thorough rejection of Fichte's Subjectivist first principle and a belief in a single, universal substance, but his profound belief that we can know the Absolute through intuitive experience. Kant and Fichte were convinced that there are firm limits on the acquisition of knowledge, but when Hölderlin came to write his Tübinger hymns – most notably the 1791 'Hyme an die Schönheit' and 'Hyme an die Göttin der Harmonie' – it was already apparent that his early admiration for Kant was being outweighed by the notion that we perceive the objective reality of ideas through their appearance in nature. The first of these hymns, which celebrates Urania as the createss of all things, perfectly encapsulates Hölderlin's vision of monistic unity and universal harmony:

To find my image

more splendid within you

I breathed power and boldness within

To fathom the laws of my world.

[I made you] the creator of my creations.

Only in shadows will you sense me,

but love me, love me, my son!

Above you will see my clarity

Above you will taste the reward of your love. (I, 132)

This is a perfect example of Hölderlin's two-pronged attempt to convey philosophy through poetry and to then justify his poetical pronouncements by elaborating upon them within the realms of philosophy itself. Reasoned understanding, he argued, becomes possible through an aesthetic awareness of the Absolute and this is precisely why Hölderlin never discounted the chances of our eventually coming to know the One. As he writes in Hyperion:

Just as Jupiter's eagle heard the song of the muses, so I listen to the wonderful infinite tone within me. (III, 48)

Hölderlin's early hymns had successfully moved German philosophy away from the limitations of Kant and Fichte, but as the eighteenth century came to a close he realised that he would have to expand upon his rather vague idea that the Absolute could be understood through intuition. Whilst aesthetic sense ensures that reason does not descend into scepticism, not to mention the fact that a sceptic is often the first to admit that he or she can 'sense' or 'feel' the presence of the Absolute, Hölderlin was still eager to demonstrate that the sceptic's inability to fully perceive the whole does not preclude the potential for us to attain such an understanding.

The only way Hölderlin could outline this idea in a more concrete fashion, however, was to explain that by seeking to verbalise or conceptualise it we inevitably divide the whole and thus everything disintegrates into fragments of abstraction. This led him to conclude that the only way to describe intuition effectively is to express religious feelings through mythical language. This avoids creating artificial language that leads to abstraction. In other words, the only realistic medium in which to express that which cannot be fully explained through philosophy is poetry.

Ultimately, Hölderlin's view of life is based on a deep appreciation of ourselves within the wider context of the natural world. The recognition that man has been provided with the choice to embrace his true identity is the only real safeguard against nihilism and despair. Rather than fight against nature, or posit the dangerous subject-object dichotomy of first principles that results in so much error and confusion, we must celebrate the fact that we are one and the same. As Hölderlin explains in Hyperion:

To be one with everything that lives! With these words virtue lays down its angry armour and the spirit of man its sceptre; all thoughts die away before the image of the eternally one world, like the rules of the struggling artist before his Urania; and iron fate renounces its rule. Death fades from the bond of all beings, and in-separability and eternal youth blesses and beatifies the world. (III, 9)

It is this belief in choice, or free will, which encouraged Hölderlin to favour the mediums of poetry and literature over philosophy. This, he would contend, is the only faithful means by which the philosopher can communicate reason; i.e. outside the insufficient environs of the academic domain. By rejecting the limits that Kant and Fichte had set upon knowledge, Hölderlin had shown how personal development relies on becoming one with the Absolute.

Coronalis (poetic remix of E.Pound’s Usura, Canto XLV)


With Korona hath no man a health of his own
each sleeve forever furled and yielding
muzzles cover thy flinching face,
with Korona
hath no man a mind of his own,
painted Iris' drawn upon window panes
RAINBOWS OF CHANGE
A colourful invocation, harps and lutes adorn
the Gates of Hell, whose damned seethe full:
One hand bringeth fear, the other jabs, for me
there is now no Other, only the One!,
great chain-of-being, undone
the unbegotten and unbegun.
WITH KORONA

Seethe no man his uncles or heirs, his concubines
on deaths bed, are made not to endure
his home signed-away; sold quickly
with Korona, sin against Natural Law
is thy head ever-more of cue-tips sore
is thy brain-barrier pierced again
no poise, no attempt at pretences
with Korona, their lies grow thick
with Korona, no clear demarcation
for no man can find reliable datum
nor leave his allotted biome
seeker is kept from his stone
lover from his girlfriend's home
WITH KORONA

Bull comes not to market
Sheep bringeth no gain with Korona
Imperialis Collegium is thy murrain, Korona
hath thy blunted minds in Medea's hands
and world's stopped by the spinners' cunning.
The Reichstag was burnt by Korona
The Liberty sunk too, thereby
thusly the Lusitania was torpedo'd
by Korona
the Towers free-fell and thricely
and the dust swirled-in a new Pearl Harbour
Maddox gunned-open the Doors of Perception
and babies were offered no Amnesty,
left besides themselves, still incubated
long before Wuhan sneezed
wars were fought over the price of sugar
and we sought WMDs amongst the desert shrubs.
Thus our world was diseased, furlongs deep
before Ferguson came a'riding, roughshod
and bareback upon the Beast of Korona
pale as a mad Cow with cloven hoofs
with predictions that culled thy sheep and cattle
and did for-evermore, by stale regulation
crusheth the smallholders' will
as Korona rusteth the chisel still
it rusteth the craft and the craftsman
no more good ales shall Korona permit to be brewed
it gnaweth the virginal petals at bloom
a blossoming long overdue, set-back
BY KORONA

Some were poised to weave gold in its pattern
Azure assuredly so; Musk greweth like canker.
Adreno drained blood from the minds eye
glistening like Chrome in a dark night-sky
crimson thorns, dis-embroidered thy inheritance
our cells they say, shall now spin another's code
Emerald grows too slowly in the bosom of Earth.
Korona: the first and last Elephant in the room
truncating destiny within an artificial womb
that aims to slayeth the young man's courting
it hath feigned morality for a face, it lyeth
between the young bride and her bridegroom
CONTRA NATURAM
They have brought whores for Eleusis
Corpses are set to statistical banquet
at the behest of the UN-WEF-WHO

– Coronalis, Thom Forester (2020), based on Canto XLV by E. Pound.

The Great Reset abolishes the US Constitution & English Bill of Rights


The World Economic Forum's (WEF's) self proclaimed "Great Reset" is shaping the way governments around the world have responded to Covid-19. It sets the precedent for a "New Normal" where our Human Rights can be arbitrarily suspended for temporary or permanent states of emergency that are either real or engineered for that purpose.

The "Great" Reset is being organised on behalf of the United Nations, led by WEF Founder, Klaus Schwab. He has written the book on how Covid-19 can be taken advantage of to implement the "Great" Reset. This is why any debate about alternative approaches to solving the pandemic fall on deaf ears, whilst it continues to serve the implementation of their unpopular and unlawful agenda. This is why they are dragging out the pandemic far beyond any reasonable sell by date and World Bank documents indicate that the Covid-19 project may be planned to continue until March 2025. Their slogan is "Build Back Better", but for whom?

This article sets out the Great Reset's origins and legal framework. It also explains why ending lockdown and restoring liberty is not inconsistent with saving lives, because we believe that nutrient deficiencies are the primary factor in pandemics and seasonal colds. The article then concludes by explaining how the Great Reset knowingly pretends to overthrow Magna Carta, the English Bill of Rights, the US Constitution and the fundamental principles of Common Law.

Stakeholder Capitalism

The "Great" Reset claims to replace Capitalism with Stakeholder Capitalism. This is the over-riding of national sovereignty with the technocratic rule of the United Nations. A global government not for and by the people, but for and by their state, corporate and NGO partners. The Corporate Partners of the UN are the sole Stakeholders of Stakeholder "Capitalism".

This is the opposite of liberal democracy and free markets. You and your small business do not have a seat at the table, we are not consulted, we have no vote or veto. The UN's idea of consent is that their decrees are adopted if no objection is received within a reasonable time and yet no methods are provided to object, unless of course if you happen to be one of their Corporate Stakeholders.

The current partnership between the WEF and United Nations demonstrates that global corporations, many of which are now larger than nations, are now firmly in the driving seat, with Communist China taking a leading role. This is an attempt by the WEF and DAVOS to position their corporate partners at the helm of Global Governance. Imagine Monsanto designing school lunch policy, Bill Gates heading up your Department of Health, General Motors running your Department of Transportation, Goldman Sachs running the Treasury. This is Stakeholder "Capitalism". Completely absurd but they are giving it a go, meanwhile we are busy discussing a pandemic. This helps to explain why those questioning "the science" of the pandemic are ignored, because the response to this year's seasonal illness is not and has not been about saving us from a virus.

Universal Declaration of "Human Rights"

The Great Reset is at its core a marketing strategy and propaganda decoy that aims to sanitise, re-package and distract from the real agenda, which is to implement the world order agreed in 1948 after WWII. It is set out in Article 29 of the United Nations' Universal Declaration of "Human Rights" (1948) (UDHR). The Great Reset did not come from nowhere, as explained by Antony P Mueller.

Articles 1 to 28 of the Declaration describe positive rights that appear beneficial on the surface and that gave hope, particularly for countries that never had a constitution or bill of rights. UDHR rights can however be contradictory and many contain qualifications and derogations that make the it incompatible with Common Law and the English and US Constitutions. Any pretence of a liberal utopia are blown out of the water by UDHR Article 29.

UDHR Article 29(1) Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.

UDHR Article 29(2) In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.

These two articles place the positive individual rights described in Articles 1 to 28 into context with a "community" that they declare we must live within or else be anti-socialist outlaws without rights. This is Socialism or Communitarianism. It ensures that individual rights will ultimately be cancelled out by the tyranny of the majority and the powerful when they become an irritation. In this case the Community is the United Nations and its Corporate Stakeholders.

UDHR Article 29(3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.

The kicker is Article 29(3), which authorises the UN to suspend or remove ANY right or freedom and due process of law that is contrary to their purposes and principles that could of course change at any time, No mechanisms exist to check this power. Infamous Satanist, Aleister Crowley once proclaimed "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law" and so it has come to pass that Article 29(3) pretends to allow the United Nations to do with you as it wishes with this being the whole of the law.

Article 30 then outlaws any activity or act "aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein" including the "right and freedom" that the UN pretend to have to suspend your rights and freedoms. This Orwellian doublethink is particularly appropriate for the era given that George Orwell's dystopian 1984 novel was also published in 1948.

You must comply with but have no control over the UN's Stakeholder Community. Rather than create a world order suitable for the condition of the people, these corporate stakeholders lobby from a position of self interest. They work with governments to convince an unsuspecting public to accept policies that are not in their best interest by using manipulative applied behavioural psychology. For example using the UK Government's Behavioural Insights Team that operates in over 30 countries, with manipulative psychological units embedded into government. In the UK much of the re-framing (brain washing) of public officials has been carried out by a seditious organisation called Common Purpose.

Is Stakeholder Capitalism the new Fascism?

The Fasces symbol of Benito Mussolini's Fascism.

Stakeholder Capitalism is better described as Fascism. The Fasces, a symbol used by Benito Mussolini, is an axe formed of a bundle of sticks that represent corporations (Stakeholders) bound together by a strong corporatist state that together wield an axe head that represents the power over life and death and also liberty. This is the merger of corporate and state powers. Fascism was re-branded as public-private partnership or enterprise, or the Third Way after World War II made it unpopular. It is the political philosophy of UDHR Article 29 and the Stakeholder Capitalism of the "Great" Reset.

The Council of Europe and European Convention on Human Rights

The UK joined the Council of Europe In 1949. Their "European Social Charter and European Convention on Human Rights" adopted similar language to UDHR, implementing substantial qualifications and derogations to previously inviolable human rights in tune with UDHR, Article 29.

Some of the new "rights" are intentionally conflicted. For example the ancient right to not be arbitrarily killed by your government has become an absolute "right to life" that is being used during the pandemic to justify suspending all of your liberties to protect everybody from viral contagion.

Article 15 of the ECHR Charter is most important to lockdown. It allows the suspension of human rights during an "emergency". It has been officially invoked in response to the "pandemic". However, when you follow that link it is interesting to see that very few nations have chosen to satisfy their treaty obligation to notify the Secretary General of the Council of Europe of any derogations they have imposed. Is this because they fear backlash if such a notification were made public? Are the derogations "legal" under this treaty when no notifications have occurred?

The ECHR operates an international court of Human Rights to which many nations have delegated the arbitration of their liberties. The derogations that they allow and their complicity in the suspension of human rights during the "pandemic" should be a lesson to any country that seeks to have their liberties arbitrated by an unaccountable foreign power. Countries should withdraw from the Council of Europe and ECHR if they wish to protect their liberties.

Human Rights Act (1998)

Tony Blair finally adopted the ECHR into UK law with the Human Rights Act (1998). Whilst this did incorporate a number of derogations of human rights, Article 15 that allows suspension of human rights during emergencies was not adopted. This was due to a lively national debate with MPs threatening to vote against the Act if Article 15 was included. This could explain why the UK has relied on guidance and fixed penalty notices rather than more explicit lockdown laws, because the UK Human Rights Act has no emergency provisions. Sadly, the Human Rights Act must be abolished to protect our human rights.

International Covenant on "Civil and Political Rights) ICCPR (1976)

ICCPR Article 4. 1. "In time of public emergency which threatens the life of the na tion (sic) and the existence of which is officially proclaimed, the States Parties to the present Covenant may take measures derogating from their obligations under the present Covenant to the extent strictly required by the exigencies of the situation, provided that such measures are not inconsistent with their other obligations under international law and do not involve discrimination solely on the ground of race, col our, sex, language, religion or social origin."

Article 29 and the derogations of human rights in the ECHR were further expanded by ICCPR, Article 4, which came into force 23 March 1976. This, along with ECHR pretended to extend the UN tyranny franchise of Article 29(3) to nation states worldwide, providing them further opportunity to suspend any right or freedom, again, simply by declaring an emergency, so long as that state of emergency is in tune with the purposes and principles of the United Nations. This is why we hear for example about the Climate Emergency. Whenever you hear this terminology, know that the corporate "stakeholder" community is defining new boundaries beyond which you have no human rights. Breach your carbon quota or exit your coronavirus bubble and you become outlawed.

Covid-19 and the World Health Organisation

Regarding the Coronavirus "Pandemic", WHO guidance states that nations should issue a State of Emergency when the WHO declare a Level 5 or 6 Pandemic, which is when there is "sustained community level outbreak", thus triggering ECHR Article 15 and ICCPR Article 4, both of which pretend to allow the suspension of human rights during an emergency.

The WHO, in "Addressing ethical issues in pandemic influenza planning", page 36, discuss the absurd concept of "Valid limitations on human rights". They pretend that ICCPR, Article 4.1 allows nations to "suspend most other civil and political rights" and that "Thus, compulsory measures such as vaccination, treatment, or isolation would be permitted,".

WHO's Level 5 and 6 guidance and Pandemic Preparedness Publications set out clearly the steps that are desired in terms of social distancing measures. These have been followed and then expanded upon by national governments. The Level 5 and 6 guidance was written for but not implemented during the 2009 Swine Flu "Pandemic", which was confirmed by the European Council to have been a hoax. We were not consulted, nobody was made aware of these plans or the intention to roll them out worldwide in 2020, eleven years later. Whilst governments have gone further than WHO guidance with current unprecedented lockdowns, they have arguably not gone as far as the WHO propose is possible under international treaties.

Nowhere in the pandemic response guidance is there any attempt to provide evidence or risk assessment because these organisations are only accountable to themselves. Article 29 of the UN Charter proposes no method for scrutiny or accountability and ICCPR Article 4.1 merely has an equality clause, presumably ensuring that populations suffer an equal suspension of liberty during a state of emergency.

In the steps that have been taken, the "stakeholder" corporate agenda is clear. Work from home and social distancing forces The 4th Industrial Revolution that digitises and automates with artificial intelligence, providing the ability to "track and trace" all human activity. The digitisation of workflows previously carried out in real offices will facilitate automation, outsourcing and offshoring of previously safe local jobs to low wage countries with poor levels of pay, working conditions and terms of employment. Socialist style minimum basic income is then proposed for those in previously self sufficient employment who fall through the cracks.

Automation and AI are promoted with no recognition that eye watering levels of taxation and regulation of human labour that already place human work at an artificial competitive disadvantage to the output of robots that are not taxed or regulated. Pharmaceutical companies are also making incredible profits from the deregulation and sale of vaccines and other drugs and medical devices. Healthcare providers are seeing profits soar due to subsidies for covid cases and from being relieved of their duty to treat non-covid patients. These are just a few of the corporate agenda's being implemented through the pandemic.

Pandemics are made inevitable by WHO nutritional guidelines

We at the Weston A. Price Foundation are concerned about the social distancing approach to epidemiology from a health perspective. We challenge the viral theory of contagion in our Summer Journal. We also believe that the solution is nourishing traditional diets, rich in the fat soluble vitamins A, D and K2, as promoted by Dr Weston A. Price. Recognition of this is being avoided because vitamin D, the key nutrient for seasonal illness, is produced from cholesterol and it is stored in and obtained from the saturated fats of free range animals, eggs, dairy and fish along with vitamins A and K2. The solution therefore requires a reversal of the contemporary demonisation of cholesterol and saturated fats and an end to the disastrous policy of prescribing cholesterol reducing statins. Seasonal illness is also associated with low levels of zinc, which is primarily found in shellfish and crustaceans, in particular oysters, but also in beef, lamb and ginger.

This is the opposite of the low fat, high carbohydrate diet being promoted by the World Health Organisation that we believe made widespread chronic disease and pandemics inevitable. Their "food pyramid" was originally designed by the United States Department of Agriculture to increase demand for the commodity products of American farmers, i.e. grain, in an early example of Stakeholder "Capitalism". False health claims were then retrospectively applied. It is no surprise therefore to see Eat Forum and others working with WEF to remove animal products from our tables as part of the "Great" Reset. Why share turnover with farmers when you can make artificial meat in a factory, converting all that consumer spending into corporate profit? Our health unfortunately becomes collateral damage, which has also occurred with our liberties, as discussed below.

Comparing the Great Reset with English and American Law

Whilst the United Nations and global governance are the problem, our Common Law and Constitutions are the solution.

The most important first step towards the modern Common Law system that the United Nations is trying to abolish with the Great Reset was the English Assize of Clarendon (1166), This re-issued ancient Anglo-Saxon rights and customs during the reign of King Henry II. It established for the first time a national Common Law system of courts with Habeas corpus and trial by juries empowered to strike out judgements and laws that are unjust through Jury Nullification and rulings by judges. Court decisions create precedents that allow for adaptation to changing circumstances. It is not uncommon for Parliament in the UK or Congress in USA to reform or repeal laws in response to court judgements with there being a separation of powers between the Judiciary and the Executive.

This dynamic system, separation of powers and empowerment of the common man via fair trials and Juries allows for feedback to the governors from the governed to deliver a relatively organic, adaptive and stable system. This Common Law system is in direct conflict with the top down treaty system of the United Nations and the administrative law of continental Europe.

Magna Carta (1215)

It was violations of common law rights that caused England and USA to develop constitutions to codify certain rights that had been infringed. It is the inviolability of rights in lands with English Common Law that are under attack by the Great Reset because a global corporatist state cannot survive such constraints.

Chapter 39 "No free man shall be seized, imprisoned, dispossessed, outlawed, exiled or ruined in any way, nor in any way proceeded against, except by the lawful judgement of his peers and the law of the land."

 Chapter 40 "To no one will we sell, to no one will we deny or delay right or justice."

The Magna Carta of 1215 is the most famous attempt to make constitutional some of the principles of the Common Law. It is the first known law to have asserted that a King, at that time King John, was not above the law. The UN is therefore certainly not above the law in any Common Law jurisdiction. It included Chapters 39 and 40 that guaranteed forever the liberty, justice and due process of law that Article 29 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights pretends to abolish, along with its counterparts, the ECHR and ICCPR.

Magna Carta (1297)

The 1215 Magna Carta was a treaty between the Barons and the King. It was subsequently re-issued into Statute law in 1297 by King Edward I, proclaiming in the introductory text, which remains the law of the land, that:

"these Liberties following, to be kept in our Kingdom of England for ever."

And in Article 1 that "We have granted also, and given to all the Freemen of our Realm, for Us and our Heirs for ever, these Liberties under-written, to have and to hold to them and their Heirs, of Us and our Heirs for ever."

Magna Carta (1297) Article 29 (XXIX) "Imprisonment, &c. contrary to Law. Administration of Justice." states that: "NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor deal with him [condemn him,]but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right."

Chapter 29 (XXIX) of the Magna Carta is the most important law still in force in the UK and possibly the world, it clearly makes arbitrary Coronavirus lockdowns unlawful. The United Nations will have been painfully aware of this when they passed their Universal Declaration of "Human Rights" in 1948 that seeks to abolish our constitutional rights and the common law when it suits them. Is this why the UDHR Article that pretends to abolish Chapter 29 of the Magna Carta is Article 29 of the UHDR? If so, this is an indication that the UN Charter and therefore the "Great" Reset are a declaration of war upon all Common Law jurisdictions including the Constitution of the United States of America, which embodies the spirit of Article 29 of the Magna Carta (1297) in the 14th Amendment.

Further evidence of intent is that Eleanor Roosevelt declared the UDHR to be an "international Magna Carta for people everywhere" and yet nothing could be further from the truth.

Article 29 of the Magna Carta (1297) remains the law of the land in the United Kingdom and Crown Dependencies and its principles remain the foundation of all common law countries.  The "Great Charter", e.g. Magna Carta was confirmed by Chapter VII of the Petition of Rights (1627), which remains law in the UK.

Magna Carta was confirmed to be retained in the Republic of Ireland by the Statute Revision Act (2007) and the whole of Ireland has its own Magna Carta Hiberniae (1216) that was also retained. It arguably remains law in Canada and Australia and remains on the statute book in New Zealand.

US Constitution, 14th Amendment

",,, No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.'

Chapter 29 of the Magna Carta (1297) is reflected in the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution. Magna Carta includes a similar equal protection clause where it states that justice or right will not be denied or deferred to any man. This attack and declaration of war on the Magna Carta is therefore also a direct attack on the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.

Liberty of Subjects and Due Process of Law

The road was not always smooth and grievances still occurred with various attempts subsequently made to reinforce and codify the liberties of Subjects. For example, the Liberty of Subjects Act (1354) and Observance of Due Process Act (1368) signed into law by King Edward III, both of which remain law in the UK today. They further reinforce protection of general liberties and due process. In particular, and relevant to Article 29 of the UN Declaration and all UN treaties that pretend to be able to suspend liberty and due process, the 1368 Observance of Due Process Act made Constitutional the ancient Anglo Saxon custom, that:

"if any Thing from henceforth be done to the contrary (of due process of law), it shall be void in the Law, and holden for Error".

Therefore, any treaty, enacted or imposed upon a Common Law jurisdiction, certainly in the UK, that pretends to be able to suspend due process of law can be deemed null and void, not only henceforth but also retroactively. This is an unfamiliar principle for many places that are not Common Law jurisdictions and this helps explain the hatred that is often expressed towards the Anglo Saxon customs, laws and peoples who are not accustomed to administrative, technocratic governance and derogations of their liberties. Therefore those UN treaties that suspend our rights and due process of law are "void in the law" and should be "holden for Error".

English Bill of Rights and the US Constitution

England suffered a Civil War following tyrannous Stuart rule that saw the Petition of Rights (1627) with King Charles loosing his head in 1649 after failing to comply. Finally, during the Glorious English Revolution, England produced the jewel in its the crown, the English Bill of Rights (1688), which established today's Parliamentary Democracy and Constitutional Monarchy that remains in full force to this day. Its clauses are similar to the first eight amendments of the United States Constitution.

Many Articles of the Bill of Rights have been contravened by the Coronavirus Regulations including:

  • Articles 1 & 2 with the imposition and suspension of laws by decree. These English articles are reflected in the Article II of the US Constitution that requires the President to ensure "that the Laws be faithfully executed".
  • Article 3 of the Bill of Rights and Chapter 1 Magna Carta (1297) have been breached regarding the unlawful state regulation and suspension of church activities, which reflect how the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution prevents state interference with the free exercise of religion.
  • Article 5 has been breached regarding commitments and prosecutions for political speech, protest, assembly and limitations on freedom of the Press with online censorship "That it is the Right of the Subjects to petition the King and all Commitments and Prosecutions for such Petitioning are Illegall." This right to the freedom of political speech is reflected in and expanded by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution.
  • Article 6 has been breached regarding deployment of the military domestically, both on the streets in in cyberspace against the people without an Act of Parliament, with them and the Police enforcing restrictions that have not scrutinised or approved by Parliament. "That the raising or keeping a standing Army within the Kingdome in time of Peace unlesse it be with Consent of Parlyament is against Law."
  • Article 9 has been breached by pretending that the majority of MPs could pass a law that suspended the individual right of all MPs to scrutinise and vote on restrictions on behalf of their Constituents. "That the Freedome of Speech and Debates or Proceedings in Parlyament ought not to be impeached,, "
  • Articles 10 has arguably been breached regarding fixed penalty notices of up to £10,000 for assembling or running a business "That excessive Baile ought not to be required nor excessive Fines imposed nor cruell and unusuall Punishments inflicted." & 12 "That all Grants and Promises of Fines and Forfeitures of particular persons before Conviction are illegall and void." This clause is reflected in the 8th Amendment of the US Constitution that prohibits excessive bail, fines and cruel and unusual punishments.
  • Article 11 by suspending courts and Jury trials. "That Jurors ought to be duely impannelled and returned"
  • Article 13 was arguably breached by causing infrequent six monthly Parliamentary scrutiny of Coronavirus regulations. "And that for Redresse of all Grievances and for the amending strengthening and preserveing of the Lawes Parlyaments ought to be held frequently."

It should not go un-noticed that these infringements in the UK have been by a "Tory" government, that at this time is anything but Conservative, because the English Bill of Rights was passed by the Whig Party against Tory Party opposition. The Whig Party became the Liberal Party of Adam Smith and the industrial revolution. They eventually dropped their liberal economic policies when they merged with the Social Democratic Party to form the Liberal Democrats in 1988.

The English Bill of Rights remains constitutional law in the UK and Scotland has its own version, the Claim of Rights (1689). Article 9 of the English Bill of Rights was recently upheld in the UK Supreme Court in R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union [2016] EWHC 2768 (Admin), [2016] WLR(D) 564. We suspect that the English Bill of Rights applied in Normandy and Saxony, France, because they were part of England in 1688.

The English Bill of Rights is often referred to as the Bill of Rights abroad. It was recently retained in the Republic of Ireland by the Statute Revision Act (2007) with three minor repeals. it remains in statute with constitutional status in Canada, Australia and also New Zealand, which recently bolstered its liberties with the New Zealand Bill of Rights (1990), that amongst other things prohibits forced medical procedures and medical experimentation. When using the Bill of Rights and Magna Carta in your defence in these places refer to Fitzgerald v Muldoon and Others [1976] 2 NZLR 615, which upheld Article 1 of the Bill of Rights at the Supreme Court of New Zealand.

The Great Reset and Pandemic are Fraud and Treason

Most politicians and public officials are guilty of committing fraud and malfeasance in office when they read from a script a false lockdown narrative with them imposing unappraised measures handed down by the World Health Organisation. This renders them all vulnerable to private prosecution, no public official is above the law, except apparently if you run the UN or WHO. Further, any imposition of United Nations treaties that suspend liberty and due process of law within a Common Law jurisdiction is void and in error and those who seek to suspend the common law and constitution are committing sedition or treason.

The Treason Act (1351) of King Edward III remains in force in the UK as a amended by subsequent treason laws. It seeks to protect the Realm from enemies and from giving them aid and comfort in the Real or elsewhere, with similar wording to Article III of the US Constitution.

The death penalty was removed for Treason in the UK by Tony Blair's government via s.38 of the Crime and Disorder Act (1998), though life imprisonment is retained. More concerning, Gordon Brown's Government abolished the Common Law offences of Sedition and Seditious Libel in s.73 of the Coroners and Justice Act (2009). This is ironic given that the seditious fakery of Coronavirus deaths by the Coroner's system during the pandemic. Did they know what was coming?

In the USA the President swears an Oath to defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic. Similarly in the UK, the Monarch swears a Coronation Oath from the Coronation Oath Act (1688), that applies also to Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in which they, on behalf of themselves and their governments "solemnely Promise and Sweare to Governe the People of this Kingdome of England and the Dominions thereto belonging according to the Statutes in Parlyament Agreed on and the Laws and Customs of the same.". This makes it unconstitutional to attempt to overthrow the constitution and common law.

The English Bill of Rights goes further, making it unconstitutional for the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to be ruled by a foreign power such as the United Nations, it states:

"I doe declare That noe Forreigne Prince Person Prelate, State or Potentate hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction Power Superiority Preeminence or Authoritie Ecclesiasticall or Spirituall within this Realme Soe helpe me God."

"England appears to be the rock on which the revolutionary waves split and disperse and which starves the coming society even in the womb." Karl Marx, (Cologne, December 31, 1848)
