The only honesty I can relate to is doom. I visit an eclectic variety of sites. I can’t find anything even remotely on track with reality through the whole process of discovery and conclusion except doom. I do find within many articles some realization of the inconsistencies of the mainstream narratives. This is on all sides. Reality has this power over all persuasions. There are many articles that will acknowledge the problems and even the problems with proposed solutions. Yet, this is usually followed by prescriptions for solutions that are further inconsistencies. Terminal is terminal. A predicament is a predicament. How much more to the point can one get?
This can only be likened to a collective terminal illness diagnosis. Our global civilization is in the initial stage to find a cure that patients inevitably engage in. There are so many collective illnesses that it bogles the mind. What is more insidious is these many problems are converging and negatively reinforcing like a hurricane of consequences. There is really nothing out there that is positive to have optimism in if you are honest. The browns are set on pushing fossil fuels that are in net energy decline and the greens renewables and electric transport. Both are a failure.
Fossil fuels have peaked in net energy. Sure, there are plenty of them still around but the economics of finding and utilizing them are in rapid decline. You can’t make uneconomic reserves into resources that produce results. This is especially true with the economic engine in decline. There are energy reasons for economic decline but also economic reasons. Fossil fuels are really the only future for the non-future but they have no future. The economy is a Ponzi scheme of growth on a finite planet so it can’t keep substitution going. Finite means there is an end.
At a certain point technology won’t be affordable to keep them going. Economics will fail and there will not be the wherewithal to produce expensive energy and run an economy. This is a process but one with an inevitable end. This is so simple but to those bargaining with this “failure is not an option” farce mentality, this simple wisdom is unattainable.
The Greens are the most delusional of our options. I personally believe in green applications for prepping but as a paradigm of energy transition it is a complete failure. The left is bat-shit crazy. I won’t even bring up “woke” and ESG. These policy forces are a criminal elite hijacking similar to color revolution technics of the CIA and CCP. I am focusing on energy because it is non-denominational. Energy is the basis of the food chain.
Green is a huge detour and will destroy civilization even quicker. Just witness what is going on in Europe. Yet again, Europe will be the epicenter of a crushing decline. This is mainly brought on by the globalist and their leftwing foot soldiers. This point I make is coming from someone who grew up left of center with a conservative family. Green hate is especially strong for people like me considered a traitor.
I am not going to go into the mechanics of failure. I have multiple posts on conclusions and a road maps to the data. There is just too much to discuss. I am not a writer I am just an old guy dispensing wisdom. I walk my talk as best I can. I am a generalist and this is what is needed to understand the macro predicament of everything. Specialization is the problem when it comes to wisdom. I read the specialist but not as a specialist. I make a round trip through all the data. Really it takes a systematic approach as a generalist to see there is no hope for anything but decline and failure.
Then there is the majority of the population that is oblivious. I do not say this in judgment. I say this as someone who knows many of these people. Many are not capable of critical thought because of age and or education. Many are struggling just to survive. I am talking about the rich too because increasingly even the rich will struggle to maintain their precarious lives. I am most upset with the leadership these days who are exploiting the most vulnerable. Tactics are being used to harness the masses for nefarious ends. A civilizational civil war is now a reality.
Eventually, just like the individual, the terminal illness wins. What is different with the collective is palliative efforts could make the coming decline less severe and more predictable. I firmly believe you have to choose the least bad now at the level of politics. This is the populist nationalist. At least they are realizing the administrative state is now weaponized for the benefit of the elite. Civilizations always end this way because power corrupts.
The left is hell bent on their ends by any means. This is Marxism and Marxism always fails. It fails because power never usurps the truth except for a short time. We are now in that period of that “short time”. Things have speeded up so dramatically I suspect months are left for these criminals. Eventually they will go the course of the Jacobin’s cult of reason and Reign of Terror. In a complex global society this damage wrought will be incalculable.
Unfortunately, this damage will be done and the populist nationalist really don’t have the solutions either. I do believe they offer a less bad approach. Decentralization is critical now. Globalism must be reversed with some management. The globalist technocrats and their weaponized administrative state must be eliminated from leadership. This means the elites must be stopped. It is only the populist nationalist that can do this.
This does not leave a solution though. This just leaves a better bad or less bad. This blog is dedicated to green prepping of those individuals who can. I don’t have anything to offer to those who don’t have what it takes. I am too honest to tell you stories. I will tell those who have the wherewithal that very few of you will succeed very long. This mentality I speak of is more like the movie “Platoon” near the end when the commander calls in a strike on his own position because he is being overrun. The logic behind this is at least his people are more or less dug-in.
The wisdom I give you now is to be honest and follows the truth. If you can, get out of denial. I am not going to judge those who can’t are won’t for the thousands of reasons for inaction. Life will deal with you. Life is going to deal with me too. Even though I live a wisdom of insecurity I will still face the gauntlet. What the wisdom of insecurity does though is gets you out of fearing fear. You stop being tensed up with fear and start living with it. The wisdom of insecurity is not even a state it is only a state of mind. I reflect on it when I am tensing up in fear. That’s all it is and that is acceptance.
This is why I preach about Hospices along with lifeboats. If you are dying a terminal illness the best way to die is either oblivious or in acceptance. Those who know what is going on need acceptance. Those who are oblivious just don’t understand which is a default acceptance. The worst is those who live in lies and self-deception. This is hell on earth.
I am going to end this talk because I have said my peace. I have given nothing new to enlighten you with. I am just talking to you like a father talking to his sick child. I am talking to myself too. This is cathartic. If there is one overriding message, I would say find community and especially find family. This has always been where human strength is.
I am not posting much anymore because I have defined my doom over the last few years. We are here now in that doom. This is it. This is the end time. I don’t know what is ahead but this is it. I will say this, the truth offers salvation to this predicament. Embrace the truth which means a spirituality. It does not mean rejecting science but instead a balancing of the two. Good luck my friends, the few of you that read my rants.
