    Realvision – A world on the brink esp 2 `

Just an FYI – I gave you two gent's a recent shout out in the Realvision TV comment section for Dee Smith's controversial 'A world on the brink' second episode in his RV produced series. Most RV subscribers who commented on this seem solely interested in ROI rather then a sustainable sound planet – here's the comment:

Dee Smith really needs to get Chris Martenson & Adam Taggart of PeakProsperity & their primary message into this series……their focus on post-peak resource management in a finite resource based world is really missing from this thought piece, but also from global economics in general. 

Globalization has fuelled psychopathic corporations' hunger for greater returns – and investors in these firms are equally responsible. It's now the financialization of everything – putting nature's balance into greater harm, all for FIAT confetti profits that economic history tells us will soon be worth nothing…



Limitless Globalization only truly works in a world with infinite resources.



Capitalism with infinite FIAT money & infinite credit creation has failed us & all sentient life on this planet with no voice to confront our recklessness. 



Want some examples?: 

-MonsantoPapers/glyphosate revelations,

– industrialized farming practices in general both cash crop & our evil animal husbandry practices,

-CRISPR cas9 & the future patenting of all genetics, 

-pharmaceutical industries carte blanche addiction agenda, 

-the Rusty-back bumblebee (N.A. important pollinator) is on the endangered species list, 

-a 27-year German study just released found the amount of insects flying in the air has declined 75% -those of us with at least 20 plus years of rural windshield cleaning driving experience know this to be true, 

-countless animal species facing critical extinction, 

-plastic and other toxic pollutants dumped in the environment & food chain

-Global Liberalism having the egoic tenacity of taking on unique societies innate tribalism 



There are too many examples to list – but when profits are truly at risk we can trust our governments will whip up war & conflict as the neocon solution, which only exacerbates everything listed above. The true measure of wealth is a measure of the sustainability of our natural environment -period. 



We are nature – and we are at war with ourselves and our true identity. William Butler Yeats is turning in his grave. (The Second Coming) 

Let me know when they book you guys ! 

PS – if anyone here is a RV subscriber comment on that site to remind Raul & Grant to get Chris and Adam on next time. But also check out Chris's original interview posted April 20 2017 – which is FANTASTIC! 

Cheers & thanks for the conference notes.

    Thanks tom!

Enjoyed this panel discussion alot.  Took awhile to post due to the small size limitations for photos makes uploading hard to do without access to computer and Paint program.  Glad Danielie DiMartina Booth gave you the softball opportunity to bring Energy (and Primary Wealth) into the money discussion.  Hope you are able to make more conferences like this…it was obvious to me the audience really enjoyed the new angles that you presented at both of your speaking slots.

I also want to say that the private break out we held with the intimate gathering of like-minded PP souls while at the investment conference was my personal highlight.

There were 13 of us and we had an open-form discussion about anything and everything that occurred to us.  I liked the format a lot as we went as deep as the questions wanted to go, and covered a lot of ground.

Everything from the mechanisms of interest rate hiking cycles by the Fed to offshore wealth protection trusts to which types of chickens people had.  

I'd like to do more of these because, truth be told, Adam and I have so much content to share, and a single pass is never sufficient in the first place, that it would take many such sessions to impart even half of it.

Only for those who really want to go deep into the material, that is.  I am imagining forming small groups that would then be their own mini-tribes meeting regularly over the course of a year in a really nice place of course,  where we can help advance each other's understanding of the world and encourage and track each other's progress and actions.  These would be our PP inner circles….like Rowe but more continuous instead of a single event.

If you have interest in this just indicate that here, or email Adam or myself.

    PP Inner Circles

Chris,

I think this is a very good idea. It would help expand the local communities and strengthen the actions of the PP concept as a whole.

    Nice to see balance of

Nice to see balance of opinion at present is not for " rolling " the fed heads.

Of course, when this thing eventually blows, as many innocents as guilty are going to get it in the neck no matter what.

Disconcertingly, I hear myself saying to a friend yesterday, that our latest crop of bankers need to be hanged in public in Dublin's central park!  They've been caught screwing criminal sums out of totally unliable mortage holders having previously been bailed out by the state.  I see now why capital punishment's return is inevitable.

    Regional PP community get togethers

This sounds like an awesome idea.  Local/Regional seminars could let us get to know our neighbors here on PP.  

Cooperation and collaboration between members living near each other would become easier.

    regional gatherings

I certainly like the idea of regional gatherings of the PP community.

    Interested – yep, I’m in

Great idea. Like. 

Getting practical – I live in Switzerland, maybe I'm the only PP member in the country! 😀  Is it possible to run some high level diagnostics around physical location, available only on private request to, say, Adam, yourself or a designated moderator? Such as:

1) how many members / how many active members in a small country or regional location (lfor medium & arge countries)

2) Profile of login behaviour (volume & frequency of activity, viewing activity or time spent online inside PP.com, time spent viewing posts or general posting activity).

this could help a willing "start-up ambassador" to guage the potential effort required to overcome "passive members and usual inertia"…and therefore the likely interest level. I'm willing to put the effort in to test the idea here locally…

PS…no names, identities or contact details requested, only high level diagnostics to guage potential take-up likelihood. Eyes wide open in advance…not in hindsight…

    Count me in on the Regional Gathering

I totally agree…the breakout session was the highlight of the New Orleans Investment Conference for me as well….thanks for putting that on.  I am counting on Sebastopol to be the next regional meeting but if there happens to be another that gets planned let me know.  Someday maybe we can have one of those down here in Texas someday…I would be very happy to host such an event.

    Real Estate values

Finished reading Harry Dent's book Sale of Lifetime, he claims to get an accurate value of your property look at the value in 2000.  I also don't see how it makes sense to buy anything right now.
