The bumpy road ahead for the world economy

In the post-World War II era, the US has been known for its hegemony–in other words, its leadership role in the world economy. According to one definition, hegemony is the political, economic, and military predominance of one state over other states. I believe that the US is not far from losing its hegemony. The conflict over future hegemony could lead to a major war.

Hegemony is surprisingly closely tied to leadership in energy consumption. A country with a high share of the world’s energy consumption doesn’t have to depend on imported goods and services from around the world. It can manufacture weapons of war, if it chooses, in as large quantities as it chooses, without waiting for outside suppliers.

One part of today’s problem is the fact that the world’s fossil fuel supply, particularly oil, is becoming depleted. Extraction is not rising sufficiently to keep up with population growth. In fact, total fossil fuel extraction may begin to fall in the near future. In some sense, the fossil fuel supply is no longer adequate to go around. To relieve the stress of inadequate supply, some inefficient users of energy need to have their fossil fuel consumption greatly reduced.

My analysis suggests that the US and some of its “Affiliates” tend to be inefficient users of fossil fuels. These countries are at great risk of having their consumption cut back. The result could be war, even nuclear war, as the US loses its hegemony. After such a war, the US could mostly be cut off from trade with Asian nations. In this post, I will elaborate further on these ideas.

[1] Hegemony is closely related to energy consumption because energy is what allows an economy to manufacture goods of all kinds, including armaments needed for war. The energy consumption of the US as a percentage of the world’s has been falling since 1970.

Data on energy consumption by part of the world is readily available only back to 1965, rather than 1945. Based on this data, US energy consumption as a percentage of the world’s total energy consumption has been falling since 1965.

Figure 1. US Energy consumption as a percentage of world energy consumption, based on data from BP’s 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy.

Figure 1 shows that the US’s share of world energy consumption amounted to 33.3% of world’s energy supply in 1965, but only 15.6% in 2021. In other words, in 2021, the US’s share of world energy consumption in 2021 was less than half of its 1965 level.

There are some economies that have much in common with the US. The countries in this category are advanced economies that have democratic governments. I expect these countries would tend to follow the US’s lead, regardless of whether its actions really make sense. The selected economies are the EU, Japan, Canada, the UK, and Australia. For convenience, I call these countries Affiliates.

[2] Affiliates consumed over 35% of the world’s energy supply in the 1965 -1973 period, but this has fallen in recent years.

Figure 2. Energy consumption for selected advanced economies (referred to in this post as Affiliates) as a percentage of world energy consumption, based on data from BP’s 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy. The EU is based on 2021 membership.

Figure 2 shows that Affiliates consumed 35.5% of the world’s energy supply in 1965. By 2021, their consumption fell to 17.6% of the world’s supply. This, too, is less than half of the 1965 percentage.

[3] The energy consumption of US plus Affiliates as compared to the energy consumption of Rest of the World has shifted remarkably since 1965. The consumption of the Rest of the World has been soaring, while that of US plus Affiliates has shrunk.

In Figure 3, I add together the amounts in Figures 1 and 2 and compare them to the indicated energy consumption of what is left, which I call, “Rest of the World.” It is clear that there has been a huge shift in which grouping consumes the majority of the world’s energy supply.

Figure 3. Comparison of total energy consumption as a percentage of world energy consumption for US + Affiliates and Rest of the World. Amounts based on data from BP’s 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy.

We all know that if a political party has the support of almost 70% of voters, it is likely to be dominant. There is a similar issue with energy consumption. Energy consumption is used in every aspect of the economy. It is important for manufacturing goods and transporting them to their destinations. It is also important for creating jobs that pay well.

If world energy supply is growing, it encourages growth of the world economy. Growing energy supply indirectly allows debt to be paid back with interest. In general, the faster the world’s energy supply is growing, the higher the interest rate that can be supported.

Without growth in energy supply, an individual economy is forced to become a service economy. It is forced to import almost all of the manufactured goods that it needs, even armaments needed for war. Such an economy is forced to place an emphasis on growing debt and growing complexity. Unfortunately, both of these things are subject to diminishing returns. As growth in energy supply turns to shrinkage in energy supply, we should expect debt bubbles to pop.

A country is likely to stop making advances in the sciences as it shifts to a service economy. This linked chart by Visual Capitalist analyzes patents in 2021 by the country of the individuals listed on the patent applications. On this basis, China’s patent count was more than double that of the US. China is also the major producer of many clean energy technologies because it has both the resources and the technology.

As a service economy, the US has tended to specialize in healthcare, with spending in this sector accounting for 18.3% of GDP. Yet the US’s healthcare results are dismal. US life expectancies have fallen behind those of other advanced countries. The recent covid vaccines, which were strongly advocated by US health authorities, worked far less well than had been hoped. In February 2022, the New York Times published an article, US Has Far Higher Covid Death Rate Than Other Wealthy Countries.

[4] US data shows that its energy consumption was rising rapidly in the 1949 to 1973 period. Such rapid growth in energy consumption would make other countries envious. It would tend to expand America’s hegemony.

Figure 4. US energy consumption for the period 1949 to 2022 based on EIA data with fitted exponential growth indications for periods chosen by author.

Figure 4 shows how quickly US energy consumption was growing, starting in 1949, using EIA data. Energy consumption growth averaged 3.5% per year in the 1949 to 1973 period. This rapid growth is what we would expect of a country that was an energy leader for the rest of the world. Standards of living could rise. Parents could often afford to raise several children.

An article in the Oxford University Press says that the US’s proliferation of major military bases overseas was developed in the 1950s and 1960s to contain communism and to provide global defense of US interests. Such a huge build-out of bases during this period would not have been possible without the rapid ramp-up in US energy consumption.

Between 1960 and 1969, the number of miles of high-voltage long distance electricity transmission lines tripled. This was evidence of the rapid growth in electricity production that the US was achieving; it was a pattern that other countries would want to emulate. It added to the hegemony of the US.

Statista shows that between 1951 and 1973, the number of US automobile sales per year more than doubled, from 5.16 million to 11.42 million. With this increase came a need for more paved roads and more pipelines to carry oil products. With its growing energy consumption, the US was able to accomplish all this growth. Growing energy consumption also allowed the US to manufacture nearly all the vehicles sold in the US in this period.

[5] US hegemony faced a major challenge in 1970 when US oil production hit a peak and started to fall.

Figure 5. Monthly US oil production through February 2023. Chart by EIA, with notes by Gail Tverberg.

US crude oil production rose rapidly until 1970, when it suddenly started falling. Work was quickly begun on oil extraction from the North Slope of Alaska. This oil offset most of the decline in oil production from the lower 48 states through the mid-1980s.

US hegemony depends upon the quantity of energy products US businesses and citizens consume. When oil prices become unaffordable, citizens and businesses buy less. Figure 6 shows that oil prices had been amazingly low prior to 1973, averaging only $16.31 per barrel, even after adjusting for inflation to 2021 price levels.

Figure 6. Average annual Brent spot oil prices, together with average prices for the fitted growth periods shown on Figure 4. Based data from BP’s 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy.

Comparing Figure 6 to Figure 4, we see that once oil jumped up to an average of $73.14 per barrel in the 1973 to 1983 period, US energy consumption flattened out. At this high price, efficiency became more important. Smaller imported cars, often from Japan, became popular. The US and several other parts of the world started building nuclear power plants to replace electricity created by burning oil. Within a few years, oil production was ramped up in other parts of the world, such as the North Sea and Mexico, relieving the tightness in oil supply.

Once oil prices began to rise again in the 2005 to 2008 period, US oil from shale became available in response to higher prices. The catch was that at these higher prices, oil tended to be unaffordable by the American public. Oil was still affordable in most of the Rest of the World, however.

These “Rest of the World” countries tended to use oil much more sparingly in their energy mix. They often had other advantages as well: warmer climate, lower wage levels, recently built factories, and an energy mix that emphasized coal (which tended to be inexpensive). These advantages helped bring down costs of both manufacturing and resource extraction for the Rest of the World. The shift in energy consumption shown on Figure 3 could occur.

This shift in manufacturing and resource extraction away from the US and Affiliates creates problems, however. If the US and Affiliates are increasingly at odds with countries outside this group, it becomes much harder for the US to exert hegemony over these countries. The problem is that the US depends upon the countries it is at odds with for necessities. Even in making munitions for the Ukrainian conflict, the US needs to depend on China and other Asian countries for parts of its supply lines.

[6] The world economy is now headed for a bottleneck. The world economy is similar to a Ponzi Scheme, with growth in the output of goods and services necessary to fund financial promises of many kinds. There are limits to the amounts of fossil fuels available at affordable prices, and the world is hitting those limits now.

Because the world economy follows the laws of physics, the growth in the output of goods and services depends upon the continued growth in the production of energy products.

Figure 7. World Energy Consumption by Source, based on Vaclav Smil estimates from Energy Transitions: History, Requirements and Prospects and together with data from BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy for 1965 and subsequent. Wind and solar are included in “Biofuels.”

We have known for a very long time that fossil fuel output is limited. Back in 1957, Rear Admiral Hyman Rickover of the US Navy gave a speech warning that world-wide fossil fuel energy supplies were expected to become unaffordable between 2000 and 2050. High oil prices seem to have been a major factor underlying the Great Recession of 2008-2009. This especially affected the US, with its large amount of subprime housing debt. The problems experienced since late 2021 with spiking prices of oil and high prices of imported coal and natural gas are also evidence of the limits the world is reaching.

Figure 8 shows my view of where future world energy supply is headed. While this chart was originally prepared in 2020, the forecast still seems to be reasonable, especially if regulators get their way in mandating the reduction of (unaffordable) fossil fuel use.

Figure 8. Amounts for 1820 to 2020 similar to those from Figure 7, above. Amounts after 2020 assume an average reduction of 6.6% per year to 2050.

If energy consumption falls this rapidly, the world economy will have to adapt in many ways. Economies that cannot tolerate high oil and energy prices are likely to be squeezed out. Based on what already has been happening in Figures 1, 2, and 3, the United States and Europe are especially likely to be adversely affected. The countries that are likely to fare better are ones that don’t require as much energy per capita. These countries are likely to be in warm climates and have relatively poor populations, such as those in Southeast Asia.

As energy supplies fall, business failures and debt defaults can be expected to soar. Governments will be tempted to backstop every financial promise, including failed banks and pension plans. If they do this, other countries will be unwilling to trade using their debased currency. With too much money and few imports, the result is likely to be hyperinflation. If the governments simply allow bankruptcies to take place, the result is likely to be deflation as banks and businesses fail.

[7] The US has been having increasing difficulty in its hegemony role. Some countries have come to believe that the US is now acting unfairly.

Back when the US first attained hegemony, oil and other energy supplies were inexpensive and their supply was growing rapidly. The US was experiencing great economic growth, and other countries wanted the same sort of success. The US plus Affiliates were the ones using the majority of energy products, so the interests of almost all energy users were aligned.

Things have “gone downhill” since 1970 when the US oil supply first started to shrink (Figure 5). Suddenly, the US needed help from the financial system to work around the need to import more oil. One change (in August 1971) was making the dollar a fiat currency, rather than tied to a gold standard. This enabled greater use of debt in operating the economy.

Without the gold standard, the US dollar was able to become the world’s reserve currency. Instead of gold reserves, other countries began buying US Treasuries, which they considered to be a safe store of their money. The US dollar could also play a greater role in financing international transactions. A 2021 analysis by the Federal Reserve shows the dominance of the US dollar in many areas of trade.

This dominant role for the US dollar is now being questioned after the US froze the central bank assets of Russia, as part of the sanctions imposed in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Other countries are beginning to wonder if holding Treasuries is really a good idea, if the US can impose sanctions which make them unavailable. Countries are also figuring out that it is quite possible to arrange sales of commodities and other goods in currencies other than the US dollar.

Also, the US’s ability to win wars is not very clear. The US’s first big loss was the Vietnam War. After 20 years of fighting, that war ended in 1975, with communist forces seizing control of South Vietnam. The Afghanistan War did not go well either. After 20 years, the US abruptly pulled out. While the US claims the mission was accomplished, it is hard to see that the high cost was justified.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict does not appear to be going well for Ukraine and the allies supporting Ukraine. The US and NATO are having difficulty supplying as many armaments as quickly as President Zelensky would like. Ukraine seems to be using up its conventional weapons very rapidly. Neither the US nor other NATO countries can manufacture weapons very quickly, in part because supply lines from around the world are required. How helpful is the US’s hegemony, if the US can’t even easily win a “proxy war” in Ukraine?

There are sanctions, other than freezing assets, that are of concern to other countries. A recent list from a Chinese source lists the following types of hegemony that it considers to be problematic.

  • Political hegemony – Throwing the US’s weight around
  • Military hegemony – Wanton use of force
  • Economic hegemony – Looting and exploitation
  • Technological hegemony – Monopoly and suppression
  • Cultural hegemony – Spreading false narratives

Quite a few countries in my Rest of the World grouping are clearly getting fed up with America’s hegemony. Increasingly, Middle Eastern countries that were previously at odds with each other are setting aside their differences. They are also becoming much more closely aligned with China. Countries in this group, as well as the BRICS group of countries, are already taking steps toward trading in currencies other than the US dollar.

[8] The path ahead looks very bumpy. The US is likely to be kicked out of its role as global hegemon. Rival countries may choose to attack the US with nuclear weapons, or the US may lash out with nuclear weapons as it sees its hegemony fail.

As I analyze the world economy’s future trajectory, I see the following situations falling into place:

(a) The world economy is being stressed by inadequate energy supplies. When prices rise, it tends to cause inflation. Some countries are experiencing a second kind of stress, as well. Their central banks have raised interest rates. This is a dangerous thing to do because it tends to cause falling asset prices in addition to slowing the economy.

I expect that countries that have recently raised interest rates will have many bank failures. Partly, this will come from the falling value of long-term bonds. In time, it will also come from failing real estate mortgages and other loans, since asset prices will tend to fall with higher interest rates. Governments will be tempted conduct massive bailouts. The countries that have recently raised interest rates include the US, the UK, Eurozone countries, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, and Brazil.

Countries that did not raise interest rates, which seem to include China, India, and Iran, will find their economies less affected by bank failures. Russia temporarily raised interest rates, and then lowered them again, so Russia would also seem to be less affected by bank failures.

Countries that raised rates will be tempted to do bailouts of banks and of “too big to fail businesses.” These bailouts will greatly increase the monetary supply, making countries that didn’t raise interest rates unwilling to trade with them. This dynamic will tend to increase the trend toward two separate trading areas–one including much of Eurasia and one including the US, Canada, Europe and perhaps South America.

(b) If we think about it, cutting back greatly on trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific shipping would save a great deal of oil if there is not enough oil to go around. This will be another impetus for “Rest of the World” countries, especially those in the Asia-Pacific area, to cut back on shipping across the major oceans.

(c) With failing banks and a cutback in trade between regions, the US dollar will cease to be used as a reserve currency for a large part of the world. The US dollar might still be the reserve currency for some trades, particularly with other countries in the Americas.

(d) I expect that a block of countries will eventually coalesce, centered in Asia, that will mostly trade among themselves. China will probably be the leader of this block.

(e) The US and Europe will mostly be pushed off to the side, to trade among themselves and some geographically close neighbors. These areas may need to set up new financial systems using much less debt. These countries will not be able to produce advanced goods, such as computers, by themselves. They will not be able to build new solar electricity generation or new wind turbines because too much of the supply chain will be out of reach. While these countries have been looking at digital currencies, it is not clear that there will be a stable enough electricity supply to make such currencies possible.

(f) There will probably be war at the time of the division into the two (or perhaps more) trading areas. Nuclear weapons may be involved since there are many countries with nuclear weapons. The supply of conventional weapons available for warfare is depleted, with the ongoing war in Ukraine. According to a study done at Harvard, involving 16 cases in which a major rising power challenged an existing major power over the past 500 years, 12 cases ended in war. This analysis would suggest a 75% likelihood of war.

(g) I don’t know what the timing of all these things will be. Bank failures are just beginning. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the world economy holds together a while longer.

About Gail Tverberg

My name is Gail Tverberg. I am an actuary interested in finite world issues - oil depletion, natural gas depletion, water shortages, and climate change. Oil limits look very different from what most expect, with high prices leading to recession, and low prices leading to financial problems for oil producers and for oil exporting countries. We are really dealing with a physics problem that affects many parts of the economy at once, including wages and the financial system. I try to look at the overall problem.

      One of the many unqualified people in the field of ‘public health’ – mostly lawyers, mathematicians, statisticians, psychologists – who threw themselves behind the whole fraud, and advocated mandates, censorship, etc.

      They fully deserve whatever unpleasant things befall them.

    An approximation about the damages by the vaxx:

    “Our results are summarised below:

    Group 4: The most extreme damage (death).
    Excess deaths are estimated to have occurred at an absolute rate of about 0.1% of the population aged 25-64 for 2021 and 2022 combined (upper limit).
    This represents about 23% excess mortality for 2021 and 2022, relative to the expected baseline.
    In absolute numbers, this represents about 310,000 excess deaths.

    Group 3: With severe damage (disabilities).
    The rise in disabilities in the Civilian Labor Force population since the start of 2021 was about 0.93%, corresponding to a 24.6% rise.
    In absolute numbers, an estimated 1.36 million individuals aged 16-64 that are actively engaged in the labour market, became disabled.

    Group 2: With mild to moderate damage (injuries).
    About 18% of the Employed Labor Force aged 16-64 is estimated to have suffered injuries due to the Covid-19 vaccine rollout program that started in 2021.
    In absolute numbers, an estimated 26.6 million individuals have been injured by the inoculations.
    This corresponded to a 28.6% rise in absence rates in 2022 relative to 2019, and a 50% rise in lost worktime rates.”

    I wonder if damages are comparable in different countries as the underlying technology of the injected substances and batch production differ widely.

    I would expect that the authorities monitor such aspects resonsibly but as far as I know, nothing has been done in this respect.

    • ivanislav says:

      This needs to be compared to prior recessions as a baseline. I know large numbers of people apply for benefits when there’s economic hardship.

      Anecdotally, a friend of mine spends a lot of time playing pool at the bar and says lots of people there collect benefits on disabilities of dubious nature.

    • Fast Eddy says:

      And the Vaxxers are too ashamed to admit they are f789ed hahaha


    • The thing I would point out is that, from an insurance point of view, serious disability tends to be a much bigger claim than death.

      The reason is that with death, the person no longer needs to be fed, housed, and clothed. With serious disability, especially if it prevents working, the former worker needs all of those things, plus future medical expenses.

      In both cases, there are the spouse and children that quite possibly need support as well. If the injured person is dead, the spouse can possibly remarry, thus reducing the long-term problem. If the injured person is still alive, this isn’t possible.

    Ah ha! the mystery of why so few Chinese tourists are coming to QT (or anywhere else)…. this is a good way to reduce fuel burn (along with sky high ticket prices)

          Questions for the future.

          • There are certainly a lot of question marks about covid vaccines. The thing I would point out is that the big problem with the covid vaccines is that way they were presented by governments to people. If they had been described as being similar to influenza vaccines, in that they sort of reduce the symptoms, and that they are not very long lasting, so that they have severe limitations, they might have been sort of OK. In such a context, they should have been marketed to only those people who were at high risk of adverse outcomes from the disease. This group of people who had high risk of adverse outcomes from the disease itself certainly would include men, ages 80 and above, so a person could make a good case for Keith and Norm to get the covid vaccines.

            Other omitted things from the government spin were the fact that there were a lot of over the counter medications (including aspirin) that could be used to reduce covid symptoms. Also, there were a lot of inexpensive medicines, many long off patent, that could be used to counter the severity of the disease. And, of course, the fact that side effects of the vaccine were hidden was another major issue for the vaccines. Having Anthony Fauci (an insider from the Pharmaceutical Industry) making pronouncements created severe biases; having his wife chief of covid ethics added a great deal more biases.

            If covid vaccines had just been handled as “normal vaccines” against a fairly innocuous illness, but with unknown side effects, then there would not have been a huge objection to them.

            • Replenish says:

              When I am challenged by clients about my vaccination status, I simply say it was an informed decision and that I think it might be a good idea for older and high-risk people.

        • ivanislav says:

          Good list, but not exactly the smoking gun of “the animals died”.

          I skimmed the list and opened many – it looks like the two common pathologies are: (1) eosinophil/Th2 infiltration into the lung that was a marker of the problematic study in 1967 and (2) liver inflammation.

          While problematic, this is in line with my prior understanding and generally not lethal.

          • Fast Eddy says:

            I will assume they have done something to the MOREONS that has primed them for an explosive response to Phase Two of the Binary Poison.

            They have attacked the DNA of the MOREONS using the lipid nanoparticles…

            They are walking time b.ombs. Nearly 6 B of them.

            Now we just wait … for the first deaths to be announced… it will go quickly from there.. it will rip across the planet in days.

            One day… we’ll wake up … and it will be a changed world.

      • Replenish says:

        Could a media leak followed by pushback and non-compliance cause the authorities to abandon their original plans? I think individual autonomy and an informed and responsive citizenry bodes well for your beloved BAU.

    • Jan says:

      This has been argued before by Irish microbiologist Dolores Cahill at the very beginning. It is discussed now as Binary Poison, before as ADE (antibody dependent enhancement), original antigenic sin or cycotine storm.

      In my view as a non-expert citizen, this is the only way, any possible depopulation event COULD occur. Vaccinated people would try to get not infected using the ineffective masks.

      I suspect this is all for show. Ties in with doomie prepping Tee Vee shows…. there is a big adventure coming — the govt will be functioning … they’ll be coordinating MAGA on their satellite phones… just hunker down in your bug out location … everything is under control

      Does anyone feel a bit of a burden being lifted after reading the statement about the imminent binary poison phase two release?

      Kinda ties up a lot of loose ends… so in a way … perhaps it is welcome news.

  12. Dennis L. says:

    Someone here asked me about the Amish:

    Here is a guess: They keep the fruits of their labor inside the tribe(generally about 200 people) as much as possible; ;this means few modern conveniences. All the fruits of their labor remain inside, what is purchased is capital equipment or land and minimums at that. It reduces overhead and with that they can purchase land.

    Now, think chatgpt. Doesn’t that enable an individual to do the same thing?


    Dennis L.

    • Ed says:

      The Amish avoid being parasite-ed by the Rulers. The rulers who seem to be on the move now. We have The Bruderhof they pay no taxes and keep all their income within the community. They have sites around the globe. They own several global range aircraft. They fly in their member and his family from Australia who is an industrial electrician to rewire the Catholic convent they bought with hundreds of acres directly on the Hudson. They did massive industrial upgrade all on their own no money except for switches and wire leaves. Did they buy the wire in the US or in India and fly it in?

    • Jane says:

      ” They keep the fruits of their labor inside the tribe”

      I don’t think so. Amish go to local markets as vendors, or hold their own markets, and sell what they produce to both Amish and non-Amish. Many “outsiders” make a point of going to Amish markets to purchase Amish products and produce. A friend of mine who lives in Northmberland County, Virginia, reports that many Amish have moved into the county because there are good farms there to purchase. They also find a good market for their wares.

      • Jane says:

        However, if “fruits” means money, then I guess they do keep it within their group.

    • Jan says:

      Prices of land and real estate depend on the use under the fossile paradigm. That makes a switch to another food production system so difficult. It is not only the land, but also distance and security considerations that depend on fossiles.

      In history, Austria was two times invated by the Osmans. While many villages and smaller cities with no defense systems were completely eradicated, the city of Graz surrounded by mountains stayed intact.

      Modern military security is based on the fossile paradigm, think of aircraft, tanks, aircraft carriers, missiles. In the moment fossile availability declines, security considerations will change.

      In the Alps, huge efforts are undertaken each year to free rivers and creeks from rocks, mudslides and avalanches, which would not be possible by ox and thus float real estate areas.

      The Amish use fossile lamp oil and as much as I can see cotton cloth and they are not completely autarkic and isolated but of course they keep a lot of knowledge alive.

      The mainstream discussion how to keep up individual transport and the most favourited flavoured yoghurt brand is not helpful. On the other hand people believe mother nature would care for them, they could eat leaves and roots and earthworms.

      While a lot of wild plants are indeed eatable and even healthy it does not mean you can eat a bowl of hazel nut leaves and stay healthy, or you can use fur and stay dry – simply tanned it leather is not watertight and becomes hard after every contact with water.

      The ancients had ‘technologies’ to survive and we don’t even recognize tgeir abilities. Bow construction was resposible for victory and defeat, the bison herds of the American prairie were possibly man-made. Of course it is possible to use wool and hemp and flax but how much work!

      There are currently a handful of papers dealing with the technology the anchienz used to make clothing. Fabrics and needles and threads or siliconized delicious knitting yarn in all colours are not available for those than run into the forests. What about lenses for googles and glasses, dentistery?

      The problem with any possible end of BAU is the mindset. People are panic stricken, wallow in speculations about the wickedness of man, and are intellectually blocked and paralyzed. Or they rave on glorious inventions to come in times of no surplus. Or they deny all dependency of BAU on oil being occupied by their party on fossile steroids. That is all but helpful.

    • the Amish, for the time being, live in a protected environment

      they are not ‘exclusive” from society.

      their carts run on smooth roads, an army and police protects them

      • Tsubion says:

        All such communities are essentially “allowed” to exist much like living museum exhibits, curiosities. If “the machine” wanted to plow deeper into the Amazon rain forest… removing a few remaining indigenous tribes would be of no concern whatsoever.

  13. Fast Eddy says:

    They’ve come a long way since this — this is actual footage BTW – it’s not a comedy show

    Not sure how one can watch something like this and not feel like they are being played by the GWers… it’s all fake …

    • “No one is safe until everyone is safe” except that the science said that with a sterilizing vaccine, an epidemic would die out if 70% or 80% was vaccinated. The exact percentage depended on how easily the virus was transmitted rom person to person.

      With a vaccine that didn’t provide sterilizing immunity (just somewhat lessened the symptoms), it would seem as if anyone with a vaccine would get the lesser symptoms. This is all we have been expecting of influenza vaccines, for years. No one had demanded that everyone be vaccinated for influenza–only those at risk for serious symptoms, and only if they choose.

  15. Fast Eddy says:

    In a meeting of the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland, on Monday, director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus sounded an alarm that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over.

    “The threat of another variant emerging that causes new surges of disease and death remains,” Tedros said. “And the threat of another pathogen emerging with even deadlier potential remains.”

    There you have it…

        Quite so, Gail.

        Or, ‘We are getting to ready to proclaim another fake pandemic in order to furnish the pretext for yet more lock-downs, masking,testing, fatal hospital protocols, and repeated forced injection with dubious substances’.

        No ‘deadly, terrible’ virus actually being required – as the facts of 2020-22 showed us.

        • Tsubion says:

          Exactly Xabier. This needs to be hammered home if we’re ever going to leave the virology plantation. They’ll use flu season and rigged PCRs again or some kind of generalized poisoning event somewhere. I just wonder how people will respond next time. Most people had the wind knocked out of them. Not sure they have anything left to give. The response may actually (hopefully) be lackluster, apathetic, with people simply refusing to go along with it all again.

          • Xabier says:

            The almost evangelical fervour of belief that with masks, distancing and lock-downs ‘granny can be saved’ is long gone, I would agree

            Will people obey orders a second time and submit to the fraud and all its ludicrous rituals?

            I suspect the answer is yes, in the medical sector at least, the public sector, and the still naive or manipulated and coerced elderly. I know that they are in general religiously getting boosters here in the UK.

            As for the general population, maybe it will be comparable to the unenthusiastic acceptance of yet another war by Europeans in 1939 as opposed to the general excitement and support of 1914?

            But there is now a sizeable cohort of well-informed disillusioned people alive to the scam, which just didn’t exist in 2020,and who could present a big obstacle if they try the old routines and lies on us a second time.

            Which makes me fear they might actually target children this time to provide material for the scare stories.

            The internet censorship will be even more ferocious, too: it’s all being signalled very clearly.

    When did Steve Kirsch first meet Dr. Robert Malone? Under what circumstances? How long have they known one another?

    When did Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. first meet Dr. Robert Malone? Under what circumstances? How long have they known one another?

    Is RFK, Jr.’s daughter in law ex-CIA? Was she involved in Weapons of Mass Destruction investigation?

    Was Robert Malone aware that his Windber Lab boss Nick Jacobs claims to have been meeting with Mossad agents about Anthrax on a plane on the morning of 9/11? A scenario that had been predictively programmed the prior day by one Joe Biden in a doomsday scenario?

    On Sept. 10, 2001, the then-senator from Delaware gave a foreign policy speech at Washington, DC’s National Press Club in which he complained about the Bush administration’s spending on a missile defense system, warning that an anthrax or other biological attack was more likely.

    “The real threat comes to this country in the hold of a ship, the belly of a plane, or smuggled into a city in the middle of the night in a vial in a backpack,” Biden said.

    But when al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four planes the following morning and killed 2,977 Americans, Biden began claiming he predicted the attack.

    Where was Robert Malone on 9/11, and was he involved in any capacity in analyzing tissue samples of purported plane crash victims near Shanksville, PA, very close to the Windber Lab, where his CV states that he was employed at the time?

    When did Robert Malone officially get his MD? Is he a clinician, and does he regularly treat patients? Did he ever have a thriving medical practice?

    Why is Robert Malone featured prominently in Robert F. Kennedy’s book The Real Anthony Fauci? Did RFK, Jr. also reach out to Malone associates and “old friends”, CIA agents Daryl Galloway and Michael Callahan for further context? This part of the story seems to go to the heart of much of the scamdemic, including the famotidine alternative treatment quicksand which Callahan and Malone both “independently” arrived, the study of which was quickly approved by Robert Kadlec, and which would then go up to tie up months of research while Remdesivir was shepherded through rapidly. (As were experimental gene based vaccines.)

    If one thinks of Long COVID, demyelination should immediately come to mind.

    Mood and thinking

    There may be changes in mood associated with demyelination, such as many experiencing depression, anxiety, and irritability.

    There may also be problems with thinking such as memory issues and a loss of focus, with some taking longer to process their thoughts.

    Blood pressure and heart

    In some cases, demyelination may result in people having poorer control over their blood pressure, as well as having a racing heartbeat or palpitations with no apparent cause.

    Demyelination: Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment

    Additionally, demyelination may be the cause for the non-acute myocarditis sudden deaths.

    Also this condition manifests in The Inability to Tell Time

  22. Fast Eddy says:

    And now we move to SS and Telegram…

    First — some science for keith:

    A Global Demyelination Epidemic?
    SARS-CoV-2, Mouse Hepatitis Virus, Long COVID and Sudden Deaths

    Let’s break this down. The first highlight needs no comment.

    Partially protective anti-viral immune responses may result in persistent infection and chronic demyelinating disease…

    Equally, if not more disturbing is the fact that THE ANTIBODIES TO SARS-COV-2 (SPIKE) THEMSELVES can induce disease. The paper claims that this happens in immunodeficient mice. However, this is SARS-CoV-2 and we must determine if immunodeficiency is still “required.” However, I do not believe it is as THE SPIKE PROTEIN OF SARS-COV-2 ITSELF ACTIVATES MICROGLIA.

    Role of SARS-CoV-2 Spike-Protein-Induced Activation of Microglia and Mast Cells in the Pathogenesis of Neuro-COVID

    As early as two years ago, it was observed that the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 can induce demyelination. So, I am almost certain it is occurring. Likely even in asymptomatic cases.

    • I notice that the first link (the academic paper) says

      “Moreover, we provide recent evidence that the novel flavanol eriodictyol is particularly suited for development as an effective treatment alone or together with oleuropein and sulforaphane (ViralProtek®), all of which have potent anti-viral and anti-inflammatory actions.’

      So, this paper is suggesting that there might be a treatment for long covid.

      AI is a technology by which the Globalists or the wannabe controllers of humanity can use to hide behind the curtain and become anonymous, thereby making it more confusing for people to know who is responsible for the changes/ decisions that are being made “for our benefit.” Kind of how a drone destroys its target, even a wedding or a hospital, by remote control.

      AI is only as “good” as those who program it decide, or are capable enough, even if “well intentioned” (cough cough), to “program” it. How convenient. Inject Vaxxes. Inject CBDC, Inject electronic spam, censorship, all done remotely and by algos. Hard to pin the blame.

      I am reminded how useless voice dictation into this POS iPad or iPhone is. Even in tremendous associated context, it can not spell check or properly word check my sentences, which is why I usually wind up having to hunt and peck to post my peeves manually. And I am expected to rely on AI ?

      The substitutions made by Apple dictation are OFF THE WALL! I waste as much time, if not more, having to delete and rewrite the word two or three times before having to add extra spaces to isolate the word and deactivate Apple’s hairbrained system. My daughter unfortunately likes Apple (brainwashed, I’m afraid, but I love my daughter as much as I hate Apple and Microsoft) and I just use her hand me downs although I would prefer to use a Windows PC, but am too lazy to go upstairs and use it. It’s a miracle I haven’t smashed these, except that it’s thought of having to spend money on a new unit that gives me pause, although my life would be more enriched if I got these things out of my life completely.

      I quit social media site FB long ago, tried Linkedin and Mentor briefly until I got in an argument with the righteous vascular surgeon in TX who was trying to portray himself as a hero for exposing neurosurgeon Dr Duntsch and telling the audience on the web site to feel free to ask him any question about Dr Duntsch (or Dr Death as he was called,) The TX Medical Board and the biggest hospital corporation in Houston allowed this mad slasher to rack up a a series of disabled or dead patients for two years before they reeled him in. And this vascular surgeon was so full of self importance when in fact he as the assistant in a particular cervical spine case abandoned the patient – walked out of the operating room and left the patient to Dr Duntsch as he slashed through the vertebral arteries – leaving the patient to die or become permanently disabled- can’t remember which outcome.

      I never belonged to any others, especially Twitter, although I recently joined Telegram to scroll down the days’ videos under “down the rabbit hole” which wind up getting me even more upset when they feature clips of social unrest, etc. But I don’t post there. Only occasionally about music on YouTube or in a tirade about lawyers and doctors on ZeroHedge. Like all lab rats, my behavior is getting extinguished because there is no positive reinforcement on ZH. My e-mail site Yahoo in contrast gets only negative reinforcement of the very few comments I get- which is a good way to sample how truly ignorant and stupid the masses are.

    Audrey, a 25-year-old working in an unnamed investment firm in Manhattan, for example, listed her expectations of: an Upper East Side apartment on Madison, Park or Fifth Avenue; a husband and three kids; a second home on Long Island; regular meals out in West Village at Cafe Cluny or Rosemary’s; regular facials; membership of a high-end gym like Equinox; a season ticket to the Jets; having her nails done; a nanny while she and her husband work; children attending prestigious schools like Hunter or Bronx Science; vacations in the Caribbean; and a “lot of cabs.”

    Curbed totted up the cost of all this and reckoned on $522k of net income a year, plus a one-off payment of $2,019,582 as down payment on the Manhattan apartment and holiday home.

    Audrey may be a special case. Aged 25, her aspirations read like a wish list of the archetypal upper middle class Manhattan housewife, and Audrey confesses that this was how she grew up and is simply replicating what she knows. But Curbed is still onto something: life is expensive, and becoming more so, and pay for juniors in financial services is declining from its recent peaks.

    • It seems like something similar to this is a problem, almost everywhere. The assumption when power plants were built that external electricity would be available everywhere, indefinitely.

      On the other hand, we don’t really know what life in a high-radiation future would be like. Some share of the population perhaps could tolerate a high-radiation future. It might allow enough mutations that humans can change quite a bit over a period of years, if this is what is needed for the world to “dissipate more energy.”

    Some realism in Europe.

    The PM of Hungary has said plainly that it is ‘obvious’ that UKR cannot win the war.

    Russia outdoes UKR on every metric, and UKR does not stand a chance against Russia in the attrition war.

    “Looking at the figures, looking at the surroundings, looking at the fact that NATO is not ready to send troops, it is obvious that there is no victory for poor Ukrainians on the battlefield.”

    He is calling for peace negotiations.

    He hopes that Trump will win re-election next year. (Trump has said that he would take a diplomatic approach, and that he would end the UKR war in two days.)

    The KA-52 is some serious hardware.

    Meanwhile USAF Secretary, Frank Kendall, has dismissed the idea that the western supply of F-16s will have any significant impact on the conflict. It will not change the outcome of the war.

    As Russia says, western arm supplies as a whole cannot change the outcome of the war.

    (The Pentagon has to put up with a lot of nonsense because many countries, like USA, are democracies whose ‘leaders’ often do not have a clue what they are doing in wars and just make up lies like they change anything.)

Ukrainian platoons who reportedly withdrew from Bakhmut after setbacks are now hiding in forests and plotting a counteroffensive against Russia. After receiving intelligence input on such Ukrainian platoons, the Russian army unleashed its KA-52 “flying tanks” to decimate the units in Donetsk.

    (The top USA general, Cavoli, gave the same assessment in February.)

    It is what I have been saying, Russia has the productive capacity, and the energy base, to constantly replenish its military supplies in the way that NATO does not.

    Came across this in TM, lifestyle observation by Don Stewart:

    “Since wheeled vehicles were banned from the roads to avoid ruts, they carried the manure on their backs. Urban water supplies were strictly segregated from the human waste.”

      Ruts and potholes are not only the bane of modern drivers. Discovered in 2015, the Roman road in Ipplepen, Britain, reveals that the Romans also had a problem with it.

      According to archaeologists, the ruts were caused by horse-drawn carts that often ran along this road. Archaeologists also found evidence that there were holes in the road. The holes were to be tightly stuffed with stones in order to smooth the surface and facilitate travel. The most common accidents on the road were the wheel getting stuck in a hole or broken. For this reason, the Romans paid a lot of attention to keeping the roads in good condition. The wear of the road proves that this trail was used very often in Roman times.

        Link to the article

        Financial Discretion Equals Happy Farming
        By Gene Logsdon, originally published by The Contrary Farmer

        For many years, we have had close Amish friends, so I think Kendall is on the right track. The Amish do not spend money on consumer goods the way the rest of American society thinks it must. They do not spend money on higher education, but believe me, the ones I know are as well informed as most college graduates. Horse and buggy transportation costs a fraction of car travel. They spend far less on farm machinery. They have their own shops where they reproduce new parts and new models of old machines within the strictures of their own internal economy, not John Deere’s. Their clothing is simple and often homemade. Their utility bills are low— many of them heat with their own wood and do not have electricity in their homes at all. They raise most of their own food. Their biggest fuel cost is diesel oil for motors that generate electricity for their Grade A dairies. If the electricity goes off, as it does now with more and more frequency, they have no immediate worries.

          But……..(there is always a but)……there is erosion on Amish farms.

          Even when well done with animal and human power all field tillage agriculture is the work of the Demiurge.

          It destroys the fabric of this reality.

          I do sympathize with the Amish and admire many things in their culture and habits…

          But give me marauding migratory Huns or Transhumance practicing Welsh herders or the Masai…..

          The plow is the great demons work.

          • Overshoot and collapse is a feature of pretty much all economies. If the Amish tend to have large families, their lifestyle would quickly outgrow the world’s resources.

            For everyone to live as the Amish, we would need to have a whole lot more horses, and those horses would need to have food. We would also need to have a way to clean up after all of the horses, especially in towns. Hopefully, the manure would get back on the crops.

            A horse disease could bring the whole economy down. The Smithsonian has an article The Horse Flu Epidemic That Brought 19th-Century America to a Stop
            An equine influenza in 1872 laid bare how essential horses were to the economy

            When infected horses stopped working, nothing worked without them. The pandemic triggered a social and economic paralysis comparable to what would happen today if gas pumps ran dry or the electric grid went down.

              Well, not “everyone” is going to live like the Amish. Not “everyone” lives any one way. Certainly people in cities will not be living like the Amish because the Amish are basically farmers and there are very few farms in cities (I know of one or two, but they are basically part of a community project of some kind; not functional farms.)

              However, an Amish farm produces fodder for the horses needed for the farm work. The horses (and other animals) provide the fertilizer for the fields.

        • Dennis L. says:

          A guess:

          Amish don’t charge each other for labor, no SS tax of 15%; nor do they take SS in retirement – they retire on their own children. I am thinking of house raising for example.

          For health care I did see them use Community Health Centers, in my last yeas I was dental director at one.

          Amish are very closed regarding their communities, what they have works. Around me they are purchasing more and more land. Guess: it will not be sold to outsiders, it will sold at a price consistent with what it can produce. Perhaps they go together and purchase an expensive piece with contributions to the entire community.

          Have never seen any explanation of how Amish Economics works. But, it does seem to be working; their places are neat and not run down. This is opposite of say Detroit.

          Another guess: they don’t use advanced technology as that would require skills not part of the community, a dollar leaving the tribe so to speak.

        Yes, Farmer Bill Gates needs his acres and has none to spare

        Bill Gates owns a ton of farmland in the United States—as in, about 270,000 acres.

        That makes him the largest landowner in the U.S.

        Stats show agriculture is a pretty good investment for billionaires

        ….Although Gates owns these farms, he isn’t changing their practices. Instead, he mostly acts like a landlord and allows professional farmers to keep doing their thing—even if those practices are ruinous to the environment. Similar to private equity firms destabilizing the housing market, millionaires and billionaires investing in farmland are also creating their own set of issues, as they are now pricing out young farmers looking to buy land.

        ….For now, Gates’s ever-expanding farmland ownership is really just “rich guy doing rich guy things,” and while concerning in a late-stage capitalism sort of way, it isn’t as cartoonishly nefarious as some conspiratorial corners of the internet want to believe.

        • I wonder what rising interest rates do to this model.

          I would presume that Bill Gates is using at least some “leverage” to buy this land. Even Bill Gates doesn’t get 30 year fixed rates for such borrowing. He likely would need to start paying market rates quite quickly, certainly within five years. This means his carrying costs rise. The amount the farmers can sell the food for is already pretty low, relative to the high cost of growing the food. Farmers aren’t going to be able to raise food prices in order to afford to rising rents. Also, other buyers will be willing to pay less than now is the case for the farmland, because of the higher interest rates. You would think that Bill Gates would start defaulting on his loans, or he would need to sell some of his assets, to repay debt related to his other assets. This would tend to add to price deflation.

          Another issue is a likely difficulty in sourcing repair parts for farm machinery. Farmers whose machinery doesn’t work can’t grow as much food. They will be less able to pay rent, also.

          We can think of many other adverse scenarios: Rising fuel costs; not enough fuel at any price; rising fertilizer prices; lack of pesticides; people eating less meat, so less grain is required, thus lowering prices; higher taxes of the wealthy. Whatever the adverse scenario, Bill Gates likely doesn’t come out well.

          Perhaps land/food does as well as anything as an investment, but if the whole system crashes, we won’t be able to do today’s farming. This becomes a huge problem.

          • Dennis L. says:

            Assume 200K acres at $10K/acre. $2,000,000,000, worst case $3B loose change for someone like Gates. He recently leased about 1.5K acres for solar in Ohio I think, $2.5K/acre income, assume $250/acre for the rest, average.

Numbers are direct from my dealer; picked up some parts the other day, one guy was picking up a few things, using the Spyder, small items, probably he was in a hurry.

            Farmersteads now seem to be more and more a central location with large storage; I think much of this is not only hedging but being able to minimize transportation costs. They can more corn, etc. to the buyer during off time in the winter.

            Also, much of a farmstead is depreciable and Deere finances it as well. Land is not depreciable and there are significant RE taxes and insurance. Also, large, responsible operators have a small excavating company to maintain the land, rented or owned. Dirt moves, it is a PIA.

They are trying to make money, too, but they end up making food that is far too processed for our bodies to live on. It doesn’t include enough fiber, for example, and it includes far too much sugar and corn syrup.

            Then we have the restaurants that service huge meals of very calorie dense food, rather than the vegetables and fruits our bodies need. People get accustomed to eating way too much.

    In a pair of recent stories, publicly-held oil majors ExxonMobil and Shell exploded a pair of the most popular myths that have become a part of the overarching narrative of the “energy transition,” which is fast turning out to be more of an “energy diversification” or “energy addition” than any sort of transition.

    ExxonMobil takes on the myth that the world is currently on course to meet the much-publicized “net zero by 2050” target, and as a result, Exxon and other oil companies are at significant risk of incurring major “asset retirement obligations (SROs),” or what is commonly referred to as “stranded assets.”

    ……The simple fact is that the global community is not remotely on a pace to achieve the net-zero by 2050 goal, and even if it were, a robust level of global demand for the products supplied by oil and natural gas companies would continue to exist, perhaps at even higher levels than today.

    ExxonMobil’s response to the Glass Lewis Report, with the company pointing out that even the energy transition boosters at the International Energy Agency (IEA) admit the world is not on a pace to meet the 2050 target. Here is the key part of the company’s response:
    ……The company goes onto state its belief that “it is highly unlikely that society would accept the degradation in global standard of living required to permanently achieve a scenario like the IEA NZE.”
    …The narrative surrounding stranded assets is not a driver of investment or strategic decision-making inside the industry, though it has been used as a tactical talking point by activists seeking to discourage investment in oil and gas-related industries and projects.

    Shell Pushes Back At Renewables At Any Cost Advocates

    Bloomberg reported May 18 on remarks made by Steve Hill, executive vice president of Shell Energy, during a May 17 internal town hall meeting. In the meeting, Mr. Hill is quoted as making it clear to employees in Shell’s renewable power business that their projects must become more profitable or face defunding and/or divestment.

    ..The things we’ve been less successful with, we need to scale back or stop.” The story goes on to cite examples of unprofitable renewables projects the company has divested in recent months, and indicates the new direction is part of a strategy designed to create higher shareholder returns and make Shell more competitive with peer companies like ExxonMobil. Pp….Ingrid Button, the finance chief for Shell’s renewables business, responded by saying that the company needs to use that money for other purposes, including shareholder dividends and buyback.” Briton added that the company’s renewables unit “needs to improve compared to competitors and demonstrate discipline with financial choices.”

    ……Shell’s strategic shift is similar to the announcement in February by BP CEO Bernard Looney that his company would dedicate increased capital investment away from less-profitable renewables investments back to its core oil and gas business in order to make the company more competitive.

    • I am afraid that people like to pretend that they can believe “models” of what energy might substitute for what other energy, perhaps based on an EROEI calculation. This basically gives garbage results.

      A far more complex model is required. What will a transition look like, over a period of 50 or 100 years? Where will all of the resources come from? How will food be grown? How will it be transported? Do people still expect homes to be heated in winter? Somehow, precisely the right type of energy product is needed for everything.

      I think “surplus energy” is what is used to support governments. Governments cannot collect taxes, unless businesses and citizens are earning high enough incomes (or profits for businesses) to pay these taxes, and still have enough to live or operate their companies. Sometimes, growing debt can “sort of” substitute for this surplus energy.

      But without enough cheap-to-produce energy of the right type, surplus energy tends to go to zero. In such a case, debt repayments collapse, and governments tend to collapse. Modelers have forgotten to think about this issue.

      • Dennis L. says:

        “I think “surplus energy” is what is used to support governments.”

        Good point. If the Feds cannot pay SS, Medicare, Medicaid, will states continue to contribute SS on their employees to the Feds? What services does the Federal government have to offer?

        We think of localization, does that mean States Rights? Your idea may well be right. Does the Fed have a monopoly on force with no money? An interesting example may be the southern border and drug cartels. Alimo all over again? Davey Crocket? I had one of those funny hats in grade school.

        “What will a transition look like, over a period of 50 or 100 years? Where will all of the resources come from? ”

        It is highly ironic, or pathetic, or both, that Germany actually had a sensible transition plan: short- to medium-term transition to the “greener” fossil fuel, gas, while effecting the longer-term transition to 100% renewables.

        Even if the 100% renewables part of the plan is in fact unreachable, the medium-term part of the plan, based on the phase-in of ever more natural gas to replace oil and coal, was reasonable. It was premised on the recognition that the long-term transition would (as Gail says) be complex, it could not be foreseen exactly how things would go, and hence the gas-based plan was a flexible fallback to keep the lights on.

        Of course now the reasonable transition plan is in the toilet and the whole planning process is upended and no one knows WTF is going to happen in Germany/Europe. Except it is going to be very expensive and quite likely will not work.

        One obvious disconnect is the handwringing about global warming while practically doing a sun dance of thanksgiving over the warm winter just behind us.

        • Unfortunately, the “reasonable” transition plan for Germany assumed that “renewables” work a whole lot better than they really do. They cannot substitute for fossil fuels; they are dependent on them. Renewables cannot act in the role of oil in planting and harvesting our crops, or in producing herbicides and insecticides. Renewables cannot be stored from summer to winter, to keep people in cold climates from “freezing in the dark.”

          Europe is already at the edge of economic collapse, I am afraid, because of its depleted energy resources. I am not aware of anything Europe can do to fix the situation. Trying to make friends with China, Russia, India, and the rest of the Asian group is perhaps the best they can do.

          • Jane says:

            My point was not about renewables. My point was that the transition plan did not cut the umbilical cord to a reliable, non-intermittent fuel source.

            Now that cord has basically been cut.

    But, as far as civilization is concerned, it is justified.

    If Latin America could not be exploited, the advances USA had made would have been significantly reduced. Only by using Latin America as a virtual resource base for USA, its civilization could advance.

    Now Mexico is getting uppity, and other Latin American countries are leaning towards China. If they bolt out, USA will be hurt a lot and that means a big decline of civilization.

            Gail, predicting the future is uncertain, and it it entirely possible things could go down the drain.

            On the other hand, there are two elements to the singularity, AI and nanotechnology. Together they make us unimaginably rich. When you can converse with an AI, it’s hard to say we are not on the very cusp of the first element of the singularity.

            Things are moving so fast that there is a reasonable chance we will see fixing energy problems and climate problems in the next decade or two. If the AIs want to explore the galaxy, building the space industry for Lubin’s D-Star propulsion system will certainly solve energy problems here.

            • Keith

              i hate to disillusion you

              but there’s only two ways of getting rich

              1—take up bank robbery—or various similar careers

              2…. transfer one energy form into another

              I’ve explained this before—but I’ll try again.

              I have a £1m in the bank—just sitting there. I am rich.—in theory
              (the amount of actual money is irrelevant btw)

              But what that money gives me, is the means to buy someone else’s labour—nothing more. (I can’t eat it)

              So I might buy a nice house, or a supercar, or spend it on fast women and slow horses. Even bread. The process is exactly the same. I have to convert my money into a block of embodied energy—–ie the result of someone elses labour.

              If i own an oilfield, the same applies.

              My oil only takes on value when someone converts that oil into a product someone wants to buy.—ie–the energy in the oil is converted into something else.
              Take a farmer—his corn only takes on value when someone buys a loaf of bread—energy conversion again.

              There literally is no other way of creating wages. That is where ‘wealth’ comes from..

              Take heed of King Midas—everything he touched turned to gold

              so he starved to death.

              Go find an asteroid made of any element you like—gold, iron–whatever.

              Unless some wants to buy it (after you’ve converted it)—you’ve wasted your time,

              This is why we won’t ”fix” energy problems. We have to maintain that constant conversion process—or go into economic collapse.

            • hkeithhenson says:

              Norm, I think you are taking too narrow a view of things.

              There is no doubt that energy is important, but it’s not the only thing. The value of drugs for example is all out of proportion to the energy that went into making them.

              The major thing that makes today so different from 100 years ago is knowledge. We are not that far from a time when solar power can be grown like kudzu.

  37. The question of Northern Ireland is insoluble and either the UK will attack Ireland to ‘secure the safety of the residents’ or all the Unionists will be expelled in a forcible way.

    As resources dwindle, there won’t be any room for minorities who are militarily weaker, and for those who can raise outside support, they will try to exterminate the majority if they can.

    There can only be one party using resources. Cooperation is now dead – it is either I use it or I die.

      • Actually, when there are not enough resources to go around, the world starts acting strangely. Perhaps the comment is a bit ahead of time, with respect to what happens, but it is a definite issue when there is not enough to go around.

        The Unionists want all of Ireland for themselves. They cannot coexist with the Irish. Like the Turks in Cyprus, who are also there because of British support, the Unionists don’t belong there.

    • Mirror on the wall says:

      There is liable to be heightened conflict as competition intensifies for dwindling resources, but it is not necessarily going to take the shape of ethnic extermination.

      The historical situation was that the British state used Ireland for both its natural and human resources, in other words mainly for agriculture, which relies on both, just as it used Britain for the same. It also stripped the forests for wood.

      Food is always liable to be a major issue in less developed economies that cannot rely on imports from afar off.

      Northern France has similar land. but France is historically a major power, and the Channel is in the way of food transportation. Ireland was easier to exploit.

      It is hard to say exactly what will happen once industrial civilisation collapses. Kulm tends to have assumptions about the continuity of states and cultures and their relative strengths.

      For one thing, future British power in Ireland assumes that other states would not defeat Britain. Historically they did try. France, Spain, Germany, whoever.

      The Danes did take England, and then the Normans. And before them, the Germans (Anglo-Saxons) took the place. Rome had it for 400 years. Further back, there were other invasions.

      There are a lot of future unknowns and future geopolitical outcomes are hard to predict at that distance.

      Britain could end up under another Med-centered empire like Rome for all that we know.

        • Mirror on the wall says:

          You are welcome.

          Many in Britain do not pay much attend to Ireland either, even NI, let alone the history.

          I suspect that many youngsters in Britain do not even know what ‘Northern Ireland’ is.

          They likely think that it is just the north of Ireland, and they are not exactly wrong.

          I saw a news broadcast in which they asked pedestrians in Britain to draw a line on the map of Ireland to indicate the borders of NI, and they did not have a clue. They were drawing lines across the middle of Ireland.

          ‘Unionists’ in NI may be big on the Union but most British could not care less whether NI re-unites with the rest of Ireland or stays ‘British’.

          Even most Tory voters indicated in polls that they would rather that NI left the UK if it meant that Brexit could be done.

          Even during the Troubles, polls consistently showed for decades that most people in Britain thought that Ireland should be united.

          It likely will happen simply because the Republicans have had higher birth rates than the Unionists, and living standards are higher in the Republic now. People can vote on simple economics.

          Very few in Britain would cry about it.

          The younger generations likely think that it is bizarre that Britain still occupies a part of Ireland anyway.

      I reckon the Irish need to revisit expunging the Brits and making northern Ireland great again.

    Katherine Watt Talks About the DoD/WHO Involvement in the Covid Vaccine Creation as a Killshot Designed For Depopulation (16 minutes)

    On January 24, 2023 Katherine Watt was an attendee at a press conference that discussed the ongoing emergency use rollout of bio-weapons being marketed as Covid vaccines. She discussed the legal framework in which this is happening and provides ways to circumvent the WHO/BIS/DOD initiatives that undermine sovereignty.

    The “Kill Box” she mentions is a military term for establishing a geographic space or three-dimensional area for a military attack by air and by surface to kill the people who are in it and then dismantle the kind of framework and move on to the next campaign.

    And what the Department of Defense and the World Health Organization intend to do and have gotten quite far in doing, but not completely reached their goals, is to set up the entire world as their geographic terrain, their target population as all the people in the world, the duration of their campaign as permanent.–katherine-watt-talks-about-the-dodwho-involvment-in-the-covid-vaccine-crea.html

          Geo-fencing, CBDCs, pseudo-vaccines, mass testing, mandates, 5G, censorship, etc , all fit in to it.

          And, yes, eliminating people too. Which, after all, is just a more extreme, indeed final, version of sacking staff who are surplus to requirements in a factory or mine……

      • Tim Groves says:

        For general information, Norman.

        I believe it’s very plausible, although I’m not good enough at ferreting out and chewing through this sort of information to make a judgement on it.

        I’d like you to be aware that the US Department of Defense and the World Health Organization are quite probably striving to implement sneaky, nefarious, clandestine, and covert crypto-plans for managing humanity in much the same way as farmers mange domesticated livestock, gamekeepers manage game and pest controllers manage pests.

        If they wanted to do that sort of thing, it’s unlikely that they would try to do it openly, isn’t it?

        Can’t just let the humans keep running wild, outgrowing their food supply and degrading the natural environment, can we?

        And as to who controls the WHO and who guards the DOD themselves, that’s above my pay grade. But I’m working on the theory that they were so impressed with Greta’s heckling that they decided to take her advice and clean up humanity’s act.

        Catherine writes today about laws that contradict each other:

        For the last couple of weeks, I worked on an academic paper for a summer conference in Dublin: Entrenching a Global Health Emergency Mode: Implications for Health and Human Rights Law.

        I pulled together a bunch of material, reorganized it, added some things and developed a much-too-long draft, which will eventually take shape as the short paperback book readers have requested.

        But because the conference organizers said that conference participants will be mostly people who are not familiar with my legal research, and also requested a “dry and legalistic” tone, I decided to rework a legal history summary originally written for Sen. Ron Johnson and his staff in December, by removing “kill box” references, replacing biochemical weapons with harmful, regulation-exempt biochemical products and adding some international law context.

          As both Gail and myself and others have pointed out on numerous occassion Tim, the world and the people in it have a mass-function for the survival of the species at an optimum level

          that optimum level, in current circumstances, is turning the planet into cash as fast as possible, and as much as possible

          and thats it.

          there is no ”kill box”, or plan for mass extermination. There is no manufactured bioweapon—we dont need one, we are in the process of self extermination anyway—just from the 300 year old process of industrialisation.

          this comment is intended for everyone else who follows this line of collective daftness, not just yourself.

          Humankind, in its current form, is a dead end, literally.

          Nobody is producing bioweapons, there are no millions of dead and maimed. (I would have noticed) Metal objects are not sticking to my skin.

          i can pretty much guarantee that when anyone starts pronouncing on all this stuff—and i start digging, theres always some rubbish that turns up.

          Right at the start of this, in 2020, I said it was a knee jerk reaction, a panic based on what happened 100 years ago. All those ‘field hospitals’ set up—nobody knew what to do for the best.

          it became a breeding ground for every charlatan in the book—which i suppose was inevitable.—Dead??—must be covid.

            It remains mysterious, this 2020 event, also because here on OFW a crisis in 2020 was predicted in 2017, based strictly on petrol industry production and investment numbers.

            I expected a crisis in 2020 since 2017, for one reason or the other I forgot about that in autumn 2019 though – I remembered again when that COVID story hit.

            Guess we’ll never know for sure.

            I remain at a critical distance from the pro- and contra-vaxx arguments, because for a layman, most of them are neither to be proved nor disproved.

            I also don’t think there is a big plan of mass extermination from govt and industry elites to annihilate their own lifestock. It makes no sense economically.

            I have found out many people believe billionaires could survive on their own like some kind of mythical super heroes, and found a new civilization by their own hands.

            That idea has no base, neither historically nor presently.

            Up to here, politics were geared for nothing else but constant growth in population, an exception is Japan where immigration is discouraged, although also there, low birth rates irk the govt leaders clearly.

            One thing though that kinda comes not unexpected is euthanasia in Canada.

            With resources dwindling and such an overhead of costs for an aging, retired and very often multiple morbid populace, it comes as no surprise.

            But as you say – there is not a need for planned depopulation – the four riders well known will take care of it.

            I am not sure humanity as such will go extinct though – admitted, there are enourmous sources of environmental pollution, hazards like these spent fuel pool, and in Cernobyl we never really saw the full extent of consequences this event might have had without immediate mitigation, as has happened.

            France with its 60+ nuclear sites…maybe not the best place in the future.

            But then again – a reduced life expectancy and a higher rate of invalid children/miscarriages does not necessarily make a human pop go bust I think.

    Jeffrey Epstein Tried to Blackmail Bill Gates, Microsoft Co-Founder Says
    Sex offender Jeffrey Epstein attempted to blackmail Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men in the world, the …

    • Ed says:

      What did he want Gates to do?

      • I think he wanted Gates to give money to a foundation he planned to start,

        • Fast Eddy says:

          A foundation that takes attractive street children and raises them on an island in the Caribbean?

          Create a twisted cult of Ep… the kids grateful to the God Ep… do whatever pleases him… and like Menudo — when they turn 14 they are packed off to private schools in the US paid for by The Foundation… and they live happily ever after!

        Give him $$$ to invest?

        What a great sales technique!

    Famous Italian journalist Maria Giovanna Maglie has just dead for a venous complication.
    She started to have bad health in 2022 and she spoke about that also on TV.

      I had a call by a friend who told me that on tv Maria Giovanna Maglie said that she had the 4th dose because she was under the category of ‘fragile’ people.
      Personally this is the second person I know that she had the 4th dose, the other one is a lady my neighbor, who suddenly died some months ago for a intestine cancer.
      From discovery of the cancer and death the time was only 4 weeks.

    • Fast Eddy says:

      Excellent – TV personalities deserve to suffer and die

      Am I becoming a psychopath?

      • neil says:

        No. You’ve been one for a very long time.

      • drb753 says:

        I think you are more of a bipolar narcissist. But I will concede that you are also obsessive.

        • Mirror on the wall says:

          He is obsessive to the point that _nothing else is real_ but vaxes.

          His diagnosis could be paranoid delusional.

          ‘They are killing everyone! Nothing is real! Everyone deserves to die! I am God! I am the most intelligent in the world!’

          His participation is probably not helping his mental condition, and it is certainly no substitute for professional treatment.

        • Fast Eddy says:

          You mean that Fast Eddy is Great — possibly God? Or at least sent by God to offer truths in a time of lies?

          I need to come back to Earth as a tradie is expected in a few minutes and I must put Fast Eddy back in the freezer for a bit — I need to pretend that I am a MOREON.

          • screaming ”oh my god” while looking in the mirror doesn’t mean you are one eddy

            (that’s assuming you actually have a reflection)

            Maybe you should call ted bundy, to see if he has and space in his freezer

      • Cromagnon says:

        Misanthropy and psychopathy are very very different birds.

        • Fast Eddy says:

          I suppose I’d identify as the former — as I wish all humans death… with good reason.

          How can it be psychopathy to desire and an end to evil.

    My HK mate with the Rat Juice damaged heart booked a consult with Pierre Kory… whopping cost USD1600… but get this … he had to join a native tribe as an honorary member… cuz Kory is registered as basically a shaman with that tribe.

    We are assuming he’s lost his medical licence … and this is the only legal way for him to continue to work.

    ‘magine that.

    I bet he won’t have any better insights than NZDSOS… but let’s see.

    Sadly there is no unf789ing … from what I am observing all improvements happen within the first year of the poisoning … and that’s that.

    • Jon F says:

      Have you watched “The Unseen Crisis” documentary? A lady in this was badly damaged by the jab….for whatever reason, she was one of 22 individuals chosen for observation/treatment by the NIH….she was mostly cured of her ailments….she is now part of some campaign group….don’t think she is making much headway….

      Bottom line? She contends that the medical authorities know about all the damage….and they also know how to cure it…

      • Fast Eddy says:

        If that was the case this would be all over SS and Telegram.

        There ain’t no cure for Rat Juice – cept Death.

    Everyone is for sale hahaha

    Love it – humans are so f789ing stewpid … give them enough money and they’ll do anything .. including extinct themselves hahaha

    Jim Kunstler interviews Neil Howe, who has a new book: “The Fourth Turning Is Here”

    I admire Jim….a fantastic communicator, who hasn’t allowed ideology to blind him to reality. He asks Howe some probing questions….it’s kinda hilarious and kinda pathetic listening to Howe talk in circles to avoid criticizing the blue team in any way…..probably a smart career move….no point in getting cancelled on the eve of a book promo tour…

    In some ways, hasn’t this been the battle of the past 3 or more years?

    Career vs Truth?

    Oh well…if peak oil is in the rear view mirror, then peak academic has passed as well or will soon do so…..

    • gpdawson2016 says:

      Jon F.. this is a good summary of the interview… I found it painful too!

      • Jon F says:

        Kudos to Jim. For some reason it reminded me of another cringe interview from a couple of years ago….Doug Casey interviewed John Perkins, author of “Confessions of a Economic Hitman” (on his YT channel)….I had found it to be a riveting read years ago and looked forward to the talk, thinking they would be discussing the material in the book….maybe Doug did too….

        I didn’t realise that John was a born again eco-warrior…anyway, after the introductions and niceties… John announces that he is focussed on the great challenges of climate change and saving the planet….there was a pause…I thought here we go….Doug is going to rip into him…because Doug has said many times that he thinks it’s a massive hoax…John was a bit on the timid side so I think Doug had mercy on him and diplomatically disagreed….it was kinda funny seeing Doug bite his tongue for once in his life….that was as good as it got…

    “Higher cropping intensity to ensure food security [headline]
    “Country’s per capita availability of arable land has decreased from 0.65 hectares in 1961 to just 0.14 hectares in 2020. [subheading quote]”

    OK, I guess a higher cropping intensity plan would be one idea to “ensure” sufficient food for the population (today 250m) but the article implies the process is through irrigation efficiency gains and agricultural economies of scale which I assume to mean more land consolidation and monoculture

    Thinking about it, though, other plans could perhaps even more rapidly “ensure” food security
    Kulmmie’s enforced resource allocation plan
    FE’s diabolism
    WHO/BillGates vaccination plan

    oh wait … nah, let’s spin the London School of Economics fluffy cuddly future, that
    No one knows

    Could a sufficiently destructive eruption of Popocatépetl be the first domino to fall?

    • davidinamonthorayearoradecade says:

      well, if it “pops” its top really good, we should see a bit of glowball coooling in the near future.

      and that might reduce crop production slightly.

      que sera sera.

      otherwise, Mexico might be hindered somewhat economically.

      blown tops have happened many times in past centuries, and somehow humans continue human-ing.

      it’s a bummer that Nature is so often inhumane.

      is Don Goyo resting quietly tonight, bambino?
