Global Economics - Are we in the End Game?

Anyone who studies what is happening in macro-global economics can clearly see that there are just three steps to go to the return of a gold standard.
  • Saudi Arabia accepts payment for oil in currencies other than USD
  • Germany leaves the Euro
  • The gold price in the Shanghai gold market is set at double the price on the UK & US markets
What this means for Jersey

Jersey is totally dependent on the banking system of the United States for its living. The City of London is the offshore centre for the US banks and Jersey, the offshore centre for the City of London.

With the stuttering stock market and announcements recently that interest rates will not rise, rendering our recent emergency budget incorrect just two days after the election. Poor stock market performance will affect not only the government's income but the fees collected by Jersey's finance industry meaning that we can expect further job cuts and lower than budgeted corporation tax receipts.

As the value of the pound falls, expect the prices of everything to rise, everything that is, except housing where most people have the majority of their wealth invested.

Before they tell you this is all unexpected, I just thought you would like to know... it is not unexpected it is the inevitable consequence of decisions made before I was born. Of decisions made by the government you have elected and continue to elect.

They know not what they have done?

Politics is not a matter of right and left, liibertarian and authoritarian, it is a matter of right and wrong.
All these things will I give you, 
if you will fall down and worship me.

Quite unbelievably the island has voted to hasten moves to place all power in one man's hands, If all men are created equal then how can it be right that one person alone makes decisions for everyone? How can those decisions benefit everyone equally?

The corrupting influence of this absolute power, free from external UK control when we get full indpendence. Our organised religions teach that there is one all powerful god (although this is a corruption of the words ascribed to Jesus who said "we are all gods"),

I wonder if somewhere in our collective cosciousness you (because it sure was not me!)  are seriously trying to recreate that on this island. But our orgaised religions also teach us that the god of this world is satan. So who shall we set as our Prince of Darkness? Philip Bailhache and his puppet Gorst or Geoff Southern? Is that really what our elections should be about? Is either of those choices right? Are they not both wrong?

So why has our politicial narrative been forced in that direction for the past ten years? Why have all genuinely independent members now been forced out in a single day? The politics of concensus has now been replaced with the politics of diviseness. The very thing that Sir Pip said he was against, but the prince of darkness is also the prince of lies, the deceiver, the betrayer, a consummate politician.

Looking back to 1998 when the government began the destruction of the finance industry with the increase in regulation and oversight was this all part of some plan? Looking back to 1990 when taxes began to be ramped up on alcohol, petrol and cigarettes and greater regulation was implemented on hoteliers to begin the destruction of the tourism industry and house prices ratcheted up to the point where both parents had to work to pay a mortgage and leave their children in other people's care.

Was this done by design or just by (un)happy coincidence? Is it just the inevitable consequence of bureaucracy left unchecked?

As the tax rises hit you remember, this was your choice. As services are cut remember, this was your choice. When you lose your job, unable to pay your mortgage and in negative equity, whether you voted or not remember, this was your choice.

Why are you voting for it? Did you really think enough about what you were doing before you voted?

Who are the Establishment?

Following the election in which Jersey appeared to moved towards an "Establishment" line I thought it was appropriate to examine what exactly the establishment is.

The short answer is - that we are nearly all the Establishment. With the exception of those few of us who are truly Libertarian.

However to explain the short answer requires some degree of explanation.

That many Libertarians are very well read in theology may surprise you, but the whole notion of an establishment is a fundamental religious concept, which we have recreated in our human societies.

First let's note that whether or not you believe in "God" for the moment, whether or not you are religious that these beliefs have been the foundation of our society and laws for so many generations that they are inescapable. They are imprinted upon our conciousness, individual and collective.

John 10
33 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God."

34 Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your Law, 'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS '? (Which it does in Psalm 82:6)

The bible tells us we are all Gods and yet all organised religion teaches that there is but one God. How is that possible? Is the bible wrong or organised religion?

That power is centralised in a single being is the religion of the god of this world, Satan. This structure is replicated by the "dark side" of humanity in the centralisation of authority in government.

Acts 26:18
to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

Lucifer, translates as "Bringer of Light". It is not possible that Satan and Lucifer can be one and the same being.

Study of the Luciferian teachings reveals the means by which we can recognise our own godhood, by expanding our individual consciousness.

2 Corinthians 4:4 in whose case the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving.

Light naturally expands in all directions bringing with it greater awareness of the world around us, darkness sucks everything into itself until ultimately everything is destroyed, such as in a black hole.

If we bow to the Establishment and the Centralisation of a power which will truck no dissent, then we lose sight of the light which shows us (as Jesus said) - we are all gods.

If we are all gods we are all equal. If we are all equal then there can be no centralised single power which we must all obey.

Any who do not consider themselves equals are part of the power structure of the dark side. At once inferior to the one, but maybe superior to others.
