    When Richard Nixon closed the gold window in August 1971, fully severing the US dollar from its gold standard, the Federal Reserve and other world central banks found themselves liberated. No longer was their ability to provide liquidity constrained by the physical limitations of the gold supply. The Fed started intervening more and more during…

    Do You Truly Have Free Will?

    How we're constantly at war with our biological programming
    by Chris Martenson

    “Making the unconscious conscious” has been an area of great interest for me for many years, and I consider it to be incredibly liberating each time a new awareness can be brought into the light of consciousness.

    “Fate” can be transformed into identifiable behavior patterns, that once recognized, can be embraced or abandoned at will.

    And we humans urgently need to develop such control over the self-sabotaging biological programming that drives so much of our behavior, in ways that we’re blind to.

    Are we as a species headed towards greatness or oblivion?  That remains an open question.  The answer depends on whether we can understand and then master our unconscious selves enough to really change the dynamics in time.  In other words, before we render the world uninhabitable for ourselves.

    Bizarro World: The Herd Has Truly Gone Mad

    You're not crazy. The world we now live in is.

    Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one. ~ Charles Mackay (1841) Like me, you may often feel gobsmacked when looking at the world around you. How did things get so screwed up?…

    ‘Somebody’ Finally Cares About Gold

    And now that $1,400/oz has been breached, there's plenty of room to run

    On Tuesday, Mario Draghi apparently went rogue on his fellow policymakers and launched into a swan song version of his all-time hit “Whatever it takes”. The next day, Jerome Powell at the Fed confirmed his willingness to ease and let the market know he stands ready to cut rates multiple times over the next year.

    That — plus a downed US drone patrolling the Iran border — poured gasoline on gold, which spiked as high as $1,410/oz, finally breaking free of the $1,350 ceiling that had blocked its advance for years.

    Black Swan Event

    Waiting For The Black Swan

    War with Iran would be the beginning of the end

    Two more tankers were attacked near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday morning  (6/13/19) in the Gulf of Oman, and if hostilities advance we could be facing a ‘black swan’ event. One that changes everything, and divides the world into ‘before’ and ‘after’ periods.

    A lot of us are waiting for ‘something’ to happen. We know that there are too many unsustainable trends and practices running and we fall into the “let’s just rip the Band-Aid off” camp.   Some, like myself, have lost faith in the political leadership and institutions and doubt they retain any capacity to attend to anything more than their own selfish interests, let alone manage the difficult tasks ahead rooted as they are in systems theory and managing complexity.

    Is considering expatriation or foreign citizenship right for you?

    A growing number of Americans are frustrated with the way in which their economy has been managed and are becoming increasingly concerned about future measures the government may take to keep its coffers full.

    A question that’s arising with increasing frequency is: does expatriation offer a viable protection to those concerned about a more financially intrusive US system?

    The answer is ‘yes’, it does offer a completely legal solution for ending your obligation to pay US income, capital gains, and gift taxes on your worldwide income. But it is certainly not for everyone and should only be pursued after lengthy and diligent consideration.

    We happen to be alive at a time of peak abundance and technological miracles.  It’s never been easier or more comfortable to be a human.

    On nearly every dimension — longevity, dependable access to food, quality of shelter, personal safety, leisure time, intellectual pursuits, technological advancements — no previous generation of humans have enjoyed the excesses and luxuries that we currently do.

    What are you going to do with that good fortune while it lasts? Because it won’t for much longer.
