Petrodollar

Seriously, this is not meant to be depressing…..fact is, the more people who know what is behind the present war-mongering, the LESS likely it is to continue happening. Gradually, gradually, because of the whispers they hear from their neighbours,  the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker will just not swallow the tired old hook anymore. And without a compliant population, armies cannot mobilise. Great war games only ever played out because the ordinary person in the streets was convinced by lies and therefore willing to sacrifice their lives.  

Basically, as many people as possible knowing and pointing out the Emperor’s state of undress will make him high tail it indoors in embarrassment…

This video is 18 months old, but pretty accurate still (in my opinion).

And since then, Syria has been reduced to chaos, as predicted. Now the arena has moved to a proxy war in Ukraine. What did Russia do to be so demonised?  Putin is no angel, that’s for sure, but his main crime seems to have been to challenge the hegemony of the petrodollar. They started selling gas in Roubles and Yen. They might even form a global bank to challenge the IMF, the dastardly demons…

Aug. 27 (2014) will officially go down as a red letter day in the history of reserve currencies and dollar hegemony in how oil and gas are purchased throughout the world. In a new announcement from the Russian business media source, Kommersant, Gazprom has conducted the first sale of oil in a currency other than the dollar, and will henceforth open their purchase window to accept both Roubles and Yuan for the exchange of oil and gas products

The days of the dollar remaining the global reserve currency took a sharp hit today, and the ramifications of Russia’s new move for selling oil in both Roubles and Yuan are just beginning. And since there is over $17 trillion in U.S. dollars afloat and in nations outside the U.S. kept on reserve for the primary purpose of buying oil and natural gas, as more and more countries migrate to the East and find it far more inexpensive and efficient to no longer use the dollar and SWIFT systems to supply their energy needs, then these dollars will soon come crashing back to American shores, and the inflation America has exported offshore for decades will come rudely back and suddenly hit U.S. consumers and our financial system.

And so, NATO rattles its sabres in the heart of Europe.

I know it is not all black and white. Putin may have expansionist dreams that are delusional. After all it takes personal blood to make the ginger-bread man walk..

I’m not really into some conspiracy about this, a conspiracy theory is not needed, it is simple maths. Since Breton Woods the global economy has revolved around the dollar, which at the time was tied to gold reserves. The decoupling of printed money from gold reserves (i.e. the beginning of Fiat Currency, where printed paper gets value simply because the government says it is so, rather than because it has any intrinsic worth) was always going to play out eventually in some global collapse of currency.

Maybe that will be a good thing. If we can avoid stupid wars to back a stupid valueless currency, perhaps we can actually move past the out-moded idea of money altogether, and realise what true wealth actually is. Such as our creativity. Our noble humanity. Our vast potential intelligence. Our shared global resources, on an abundant planet in the middle of the vastness of an unimaginable cosmos. Resources and abundance that have always been more than sufficient to elegantly support the journey of every embodied human towards their highest evolutionary destiny.

Quantum Physics .. the future is not something we enter, the future is something we create ..
