    They’ve Stolen Our Future!

    Collapse is in the cards

    It’s time to have a serious conversation.  I know we’ve been having it, but maybe there’s another glove hidden beneath the one we’ve already taken off.

    Put bluntly, there doesn’t seem to be any hope of avoiding a collapse of civilization.  The forces of the Business-As-Usual crowd are just too strong, the narrative machine too honed, the interests too entrenched to allow any sort of meaningful course correction at this time.

    But is that the case?

    Creating A World Worth Inheriting

    These opportunities excite me the most right now

    Executive Summary

    • Changing your fate requires action today
    • Here’s the action/opportunity I’m most focused on today in my own life
    • How to step into an “elder” role, if you have the courage
    • How to create a world worth inheriting

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Path From Survival To Significance, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Our mission at Peak Prosperity is to “Create a world worth inheriting”. Every single day we feel like we’re doing everything we can to move towards this goal. But some days, it feels like our efforts may not be nearly enough to get the job done.

    But while our own actions may be insufficient, they are necessary. And paired with the steps you take, and those of the hundreds of thousands of other PeakProsperity.com readers, our odds for success exponentially improve.

    I’d like to slip out of ‘convincing mode’ for this piece. Because so many people still seem to be unaware of our many predicaments, I often find myself leaning towards lining up all the evidence, in the hope that I can open a few more eyes.

    But not today. We all know the score. We’re collectively on a terribly unsustainable course. The data is overwhelming at this point.

    All of this then, leads to the idea that to create a world worth inheriting we have to first admit that our society is not on track to do that.

    It’s up to us to plan accordingly, based on what our own eyes, ears and hearts are telling us is true.

    Mine tell me that there’s a better way, one that does not involve squabbling like primitive monkeys over key resources.

    And then we must be willing to change on a very deep level. Both internally so we can be proper elders and compatriots to those around us, and externally as we move into a life of consuming less.

    I look around and I see people using their big brains to work with nature, create abundance, and believe in ourselves as creative forces for good.

    The opportunities that are capturing my personal attention most and are inspiring me into new action in my own life are…

    The Path From Survival to Significance

    A valuable new framework for increasing resilience
    by cmartenson

    I’m personally excited to share this new framework because it comes not a moment too soon.

    At a time when our media and authorities want us distracted, compliant, and isolated, this moment in time demands that we be the exact opposite of those things.

    War with Iran

    War with Iran – The Risk is Elevated

    Are you prepared?

    Is it really about to go down in Iran?  Is a war now coming?

    The Twitter feeds I have tracking Iran are on fire this morning.

    Looks like the Trade deal is bad enough and the Barr investigation threatening enough that the “answer” is war with Iran.

    Trade deal dead, and sabotage in the Persian Gulf.

    It was a tough day in the equity markets especially for the story stocks.  All we need is one distinct failure of one of the key story stocks and we’ll be off to the bubble-bursting races.

    Or a massive spike in the price of oil which is what we’ll get if the three (or more) sabotaged tankers at the UAE port in the Persian Gulf is the start of something a bit hotter and more kinetic.

    The Trade Deal Has Collapsed

    The main support propping up the markets suddenly looks very shaky

    Count me as surprised, but it seems like the China trade deal is collapsing.  Surprised because both sides, China and the US, have much to lose in this battle.

    While there’s certainly some temporary local benefit to various pockets and sectors of the economy, the fact remains that the world economy is still exhibiting signs of slowing down and anything that puts additional weight on the economy right now could be the stone that sinks the barge.

    How to escape the slow squeeze of financialization

    • How financialization facilitates wealth transfer
    • How to escape the slow squeeze of financialization
    • Understanding mannon
    • How to prepare for the future

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Company Store , available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Given that the powers that be are highly motivated to keep their power and privilege intact, we all need to be prepared for the trends to continue for a while longer, perhaps a lot longer, before they change.

    In fact, I think we need to get this right out on the table; nothing will change until something forces that change.

    Whether that’s an ecological catastrophe that cannot be ignored any longer, a financial collapse, or a social rebellion is unknowable.  But something along those lines.

    Power never gives up its advantages willingly.  Especially not a power structure so far gone that it shrugs when its children (as young as 5!) and farmers alike are resorting to suicide as a means of escape from its depredations and oversights.

    Especially not from a system of banking that doesn’t even question handing out many trillions of dollars against dodgy collateral (“it was an emergency!”).

    Meanwhile you and I have to live our lives knowing that there’s a rigged game afoot that is rather unhinged and bottomless in its desire for more (mammon is winning).

    The opportunity, such as it is, is for us to first recognize this game for what it is (rigged) and to realign our own actions with the future we wish to see.  Step one is…

    Leaves almost nothing to live on

    The scam enabled by today’s financial ““markets”” coupled with lots of easy cheap credit flowing to big monied interests is every bit as egregious as the company store of old; only today’s victims are mostly blind to the way that the system is rigged against them.

    Run this scam long enough and one day we’ll discover that the banks and their proxy agents — private equity funds, hedge funds, endowments, and family offices, etc — own all of the productive farmland, all of the mines, all of the oil wells, all of the timberland, and every other means of primary wealth production.
