4-point shitstorm

I keep seeing broad predictions of no practical use.

Note: this is the shortest timeline, as soon as possible.

More useful is to understand how a process can unfold.

Based on history, here is how any Trouble would likely arise.

  1. A big flagship company (e.g. Tesla) would be subject to market forces and tank. Economy would get shitty for a while. It could be a national thing in the international banking system e.g. Venezuela, Italy using its guns to defend its culture and the collapse of the EU – same result from black swan.
  2. The economy would get shittier after a numb time of optimism and market shock because the same con artists are in charge while most flee to Israel, Russia, bunkers, whatever. Internet and other communications would go down and we rely on those for news. People would bank run, making it worse. Banks would close, a few minor attacks on bankers. Public workers lose money, including police. Loyalty becomes frayed. Margin call, Universities lose bargaining power. MSM flails like a dead fish.
  3. The infrastructure would crack and reveal the rotting crumbling edifice propped up fiat fake fun money e.g. pension funds go, NHS implodes, EBT crashes, nuclear power meltdowns, EMP from piss-taking panicking China maybe. A lot of basic functions would go to shit. Big one? FOOD SECURITY. Starts all riots.
  4. Still entitled, many groups would expect special treatment. Being thieves, that’s when your violence and civil wars would start. WW3 would likely be a WorldWide Civil War.

Timeline, depends on bailouts, to be perfectly honest.

I didn’t think so much QE was possible.

Some countries might opt to default early e.g. Italy, to save themselves at the expense of the system that screwed them with odious debt.

2019-2021, previously mentioned by me. I predicted by 2022, much will have changed about the basic ways the world operates. Much of it worse but more principled, maybe?

I can’t discuss rebuild before the tower falls.

Again, predicting something isn’t the same as wanting it to happen.

In 2019, stock volatility of Stage 1. Speed of progression after that hard to say.

I doubt there are enough high IQs in the Valley to operate out of such a mess.

These people got paid in stock.

And electronic, not emergency TP.

Could be wrong but I’ve called a lot of things before. The timeline is blurry because I’m honest.

I can’t say, ah, it’s September 3rd, 2019, can I?

January 25 2020.

August 12 2020.

April 18 2021.

There are simply too many factors.

It won’t be 2030 though, Vox. I know that.

(No, I’m not hinting those dates).

Many institutions are failing, but the “collapse” per se is when this state of fact suddenly hits public awareness and becomes undeniable, it will seem like a flood all at once.

We’re the Titanic passengers who see a trickle of water. That shouldn’t be there.

WW1 killed us. Metaphorically, we got on the boat and abandoned class and character.

Pet peeve?

The world isn’t broken, it’s the people in it. They don’t even care. These days, all the bad people believe they are good. The lies and the phoniness get to me. They hate the truth that would save them. If people aren’t good, the world isn’t good – think about it. Instead of “changing the world”, a symptom of the disease, all we need is to let people see themselves clearly. I do care… but most people are too weak to help, too puerile and needy of base gratifications to aspire to anything challenging or true. The idolatry of celebrity, huh, look at the atrocious quality of the people we admire. Why? That’s what I’d ask. The low quality of modern humanity presages a terrible downfall, for all of us. Stop treating adults like children, we don’t have the time!

cut from an interview. I bet they’d publish a sex life story though, right?

Let’s just pat everyone on the head en route to their credit card.
