Theft is defined as “the taking of another person's property or services without that person's permission or consent.” Almost invariably, governments pass tax laws and set tax rates without any consultation with the citizenry. Further, no final approval is sought by the citizenry that they consent to the tax or the rates. It is simply imposed. Most of us tend not to regard taxation as theft, yet, by definition, that’s exactly what it is.

“The times, they are a-changin,” as Bob Dylan said in song in 1964, but the changes that he saw back then were nothing in comparison to what we’re witnessing today. Governments, particularly in the First World countries, are headed in a decidedly totalitarian direction and the frequency and magnitude of the changes being implemented are on the increase. This development is exacerbated, as the same countries that are leading the charge toward totalitarianism are also the countries that are experiencing the heaviest debt load ever created in history. Technically, they’re all broke, but not yet collapsed, as a collapse only occurs when the populace discovers that the currency is worthless. But is there hope? Is it possible that governments will turn this around?

In recent decades, political correctness has been very much on the rise in the countries that were formerly regarded as the “free world.” It’s important to remind those who live in these countries (North America, Europe, etc.), that political correctness is not by any means as prevalent in the rest of the world. In fact, the further removed a country is from the influence of the EU and US, the less prevalent political correctness is. The EU and US are, in fact, the epicentre of this movement… This is no accident. So, should political correctness be forcibly controlled? Well, no. If someone wishes to adopt a belief, regardless of whether we find it silly, pointless, or even offensive, that should unquestionably be their right. But, is there a point at which political correctness becomes dangerous? Yes, decidedly so. It becomes dangerous when it becomes sanctimonious and aggressive – it then morphs into what I term “sanctimania.”

Here we have a photo of Corporal Maxwell Klinger, a character in the American television comedy, M.A.S.H., filmed in the early 1970’s. The Klinger character was written as a soldier in the Korean War, who hoped that, if he became a transvestite, he’d qualify for a Section Eight discharge and would be sent home. In this photo, Corporal Klinger was taking part in a troop inspection. In the early 70’s, America was still involved in the Viet Nam War. The liberal press graphically covered that war and its travesties – to the point that a majority of Americans became sick of the seemingly endless (and pointless) conflict and thoroughly sympathized with the Klinger character. But, make no mistake about it: Corporal Klinger was an anarchist.

The critter in the photo above is an entomologic marvel. The seventeen-year locust (or cicada) appears on the American continent like clockwork every seventeen years. As soon as a locust is born, it burrows in the ground and appears to hibernate for seventeen years. When it emerges, it lives only four to six weeks – just long enough to devastate crops, lay a new batch of eggs and start the cycle again. But, whilst underground, they’re not actually hibernating. They are in fact active in a wingless nymph form, feeding on sap and tree roots. They’re building their strength for their periodic devastation. The danger that they present to humanity is that, when they emerge, they do so collectively and their cumulative damage is often epic. But enough of entomologic lessons. Those who read this publication are more concerned with a destruction created by mankind – the rise of a class of human that seeks to destroy all that has been achieved in the last several generations. We call them the Elites, the Globalists, the Deep State, etc. The moniker we give them matters little; it’s their nature that’s of significance. They‘ve been building their power base for generations and are now powerful enough to transform the world. They are a class of parasite that has now managed to take over entire governments.

In his inaugural address in 1961, new President John Kennedy gave a stirring speech in which he famously stated, “And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. “ He then went on to say, “Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you.” Nonsense. John Kennedy was by most measures, one of the better US presidents. But he did believe in the concept that the role of the people of a country should be to serve their country and to sacrifice themselves to it. Again… nonsense. Let’s put this in perspective.

In the late eighteenth century, Bishop George Berkeley posed the question, “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?” Since that time, generations of university philosophy professors have required their students to consider the question. Countless classroom time has been taken up in pondering it. In many cases, students would be required to write a report containing their answer and they might even be graded on it. Of course, this is the world of academia, which consists almost entirely of theory, not practical application. But, in the functioning world, it makes not the slightest difference whether the tree makes a sound or not. The lumberjack who actually encounters the tree is unconcerned with the philosophical question. He only cares that he has a tree he can cut. He represents those who produce, rather than those who theorise.

In a previous article, Will Globalism Succeed, I described the likelihood of the success of the globalist plan to take over the world. My take on the question is that the plan will fail. But why should that be? Well let’s have a look at it.

As the Great Unravelling progresses, we shall be seeing many negative developments, some of them unprecedented. Only a year ago, the average person was still hanging on to the belief that the world is in a state of recovery; that, however tentative, the economy was on the mend. And this is understandable. After all, the media have been doing a bangup job of explaining the situation in a way that treats recovery as a general assumption. The only point of discussion is the method applied to achieve the recovery, but the recovery itself is treated as a given. However, as thorough a distraction as the media (and the governments of the world) have provided, the average person has begun to recognise that something is fundamentally wrong. He now has a gut feeling that, even if he is not well-versed enough to describe in economic terms what is incorrect in the endless chatter he sees on his television, he now senses that the situation will not end well.

In 1796, the US issued its first quarter dollar. On the obverse, it displayed the image of Lady Liberty and, above the image (in case there was any doubt about the message) the word LIBERTY was prominently displayed. The coin was minted from silver (90%) and copper (10%). Over the years, the design of the US quarter changed repeatedly. Then, in 1932, a new quarter (image #1, above) was issued that featured the image of American founding father George Washington. As before, the word, “LIBERTY” appeared above his image – a continuing reminder of the primary principle upon which the US was founded. And, as before, the coin was minted from silver (90%) and copper (10%). So far, so good.
