They're Not Going to Change, So We Have to Change
Listen to an audio reading of this article:
There was a recent interview with Edward Dowd, the former BlackRock portfolio manager, turned rogue, who is now an outspoken vaccine critic. His book, Cause Unknown, about the epidemic of sudden deaths due to the vaccine, is a bestseller on Amazon.
Dowd offered some sage wisdom during the interview. He advised people to continue living their lives and fulfilling their dreams and ambitions, despite the creeping global totalitarianism:
“The battle is within. You have to remain calm. You have to stay out of fear and you have to take care of yourself and your loved ones. You have to drown out the noise and not get into a hopeless despair because that will cause anxiety and depression. There’s going to be cadence to this because the world isn’t going to end overnight, nor will it be televised. So continue to live your lives, go to your kids’ graduations. If you have a girlfriend, get married, have a kid. You just got to live your life with the understanding that the normalcy bias you might have had is gone and you have to be able to live in uncertainty and take the punches as they come but not freak out about them. It’s a struggle within and once you get your house right and take care of your mental well-being, you can help others …”
So it’s okay to have some kids and raise some chickens. Okay, he didn’t say raise some chickens, but it has been on my mind lately, because City Hall, here in Vancouver, allows any resident to raise four chickens on their property. No kidding.
I discovered this because our neighbour has two friendly chickens who wander over and peck on our front lawn and sometimes drop in for a visit.
Of course the city bureaucrats have to get their stubby little hands into everything—you have to register your chickens and a city inspector will come over and check out your chicken coup. You also have to get an annual permit. Why can’t City Hall just f*ck off?!
A Giant Step Backwards
Having chickens that produce fresh eggs every week that are not poisoned with hormones and antibiotics is a refreshing dream in the city. We are definitely looking forward to getting our own free range chickens very soon.
In keeping with this theme, it is urgent that the whole world takes a giant step backwards to a more agriculture-based lifestyle. The powers that be are pushing hard and heavy to achieve some kind of scientific utopia, but at the expense of the majority of Earth’s inhabitants. The very real threat of a world war erupting because of the aggravated slide into totalitarianism cannot be over-stated.
Over the last few decades, the world has undergone a massive transition to an urban lifestyle. The World Economic Forum, bless their evil black hearts, does a deep dive into the urbanization of the planet. (Because they are obsessed with reducing, controlling and injecting the human population.)
According to the WEF:
56.2% of the global population now lives in cities.
The biggest change has been in Latin America and the Caribbean, with 81.2% of the population living in urban areas, up from 41.3% in 1950.
Urban populations made up the highest share in Northern American countries – 83.6 percent of residents lived in cities in 2020.
The number of people living in slums or other informal settlements has grown by 165 million in the past 20 years, bringing the total to nearly 1.1 billion.
High Density Urban Centers
The problem with high density urban centers is legion:
Studies have shown that people jammed into tight urban spaces, in tiny overpriced apartments, results in massive social problems. Alcoholism, drug addiction and domestic abuse escalate in direct proportion to over-crowding. Rents and cost of living are driven up by real estate speculation, and wealthy people gobble up the best properties. Escalating rents and cost of living push the poorest, weakest section of the population into homelessness, as we are witnessing in spades all over North America.
The Downtown Eastside here in Vancouver is an urban ghetto nightmare that is getting worse every year. City Hall politicians don’t care because they are financed by the wealthy real estate developers, who push their agenda and reap the rewards of urban density, while the poor are systematically destroyed.
It isn’t rocket science to understand what is happening to our cities.
Urbanization is also not family friendly. A family needs space to grow and flourish. Children that grow up in condo cubicles have a very different life experience compared to those who grow up with a strong outdoor childhood. My generation is all too keenly aware of this, because we grew up outdoors. In the summer, our parents gave us breakfast and kicked us out of the house. We played outside with all the other neighbourhood kids.
The friendships of the kids brought the parents together and there was a sense of community. On Sunday, everything was closed. The Lord’s Day Act, instituted in 1906, was declared unconstitutional in 1985, in a unanimous 6–0 decision. It was ruled an infringement of the freedom of conscience and religion defined in section 2(a) of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
It was big box retailers who pushed for an end to Sunday shopping, with the approval of Canadians who have slid further into materialism in the last few decades. Previously, the general consensus of the judicial system was that closing down on Sunday was for the benefit of society. In 1896, US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Johnson Field, commented on a judgement regarding the prohibition of running freight trains on Sunday:
“Its requirement is a cessation from labor. In its enactment, the legislature has given the sanction of law to a rule of conduct, which the entire civilized world recognizes as essential to the physical and moral well-being of society. Upon no subject is there such a concurrence of opinion, among philosophers, moralists and statesmen of all nations, as on the necessity of periodical cessation from labor. One day in seven is the rule, founded in experience and sustained by science. The prohibition of secular business on Sunday is advocated on the ground that by it the general welfare is advanced, labor protected, and the moral and physical well-being of society promoted.”
— Hennington v. Georgia, 163 U.S. 299 (1896)
The secularization of society has proven to be a bad thing, not a good thing. When a nation puts profits over principles, it is not going to end well. When the whole planet becomes a corporation run by billionaires, things are going to go from bad to worse.
The core social malaise affecting urban societies is loss of connection. Human beings have become disconnected from the physical earth, from friends and family, from their co-workers and associates, and even from animals. We are forever part of creation, whether we care to admit it or not. We are children of nature, born from a woman, sired by a man. All human beings gestate for nine months in the womb, and then enter the world, the same way that all mammals do.
Urbanization disconnects us from nature, or more accurately, the current system of modern urbanization disconnects us, because cities are giant corporate machines that create wealth primarily for the billionaire class. They are machines for making money, not for making better human beings and stronger families.
Disconnection results in addiction. The loss of connection from any or all phases of human life causes emotional and mental trauma that is either resolved by reconnecting, or if the trauma is unresolved, it leads to addiction.
We need to relearn how to connect to all phases of human life:
Modern men and women are disconnected from their governments. Governments, especially in the West have become political theater, fronted by actors and PR men. The opinions, wishes and will of the majority have no bearing on the policy decisions of our elected officials. Laws are rammed through for the benefit of the wealthy, with no consideration of their consequences to the rest of society.
The fantastic wealth generated by our modern world has created an uber-wealthy billionaire class who are completely disconnected from the rest of the world. They are insulated in gated communities, and fly around the world in private jets that ensure they have no connection to the common man.
A recent study by Oxfam, in 2017, pointed out that the gap between the super-rich and the poorest half of the global population is more dramatic than previously thought, with just eight men owning as much wealth as 3.6-billion people. Oxfam calculates that two Canadian billionaires, David Thomson and Galen Weston Sr., have the same amount of wealth as the poorest 30 per cent of Canadians combined. Their wealth equals that of about 11 million Canadians. The Thomson family who own Reuters media outlet, are the wealthiest family in Canada.
Without a vision of the future, we cannot move forward to create a better world. The technocrats at the WEF, the United Nations, the WHO and the leaders of the 196 nations on Earth have demonstrated an abysmal lack of leadership. The vision that they are promoting is horrifying. It is therefore up to the citizens of our nations to offer a superior vision of the future.
All civilization for the last 12,000 years, since hunter-gatherers gave up their nomadic lifestyle to pursue agriculture, is based on farming, animal husbandry and horticulture. The early tribal farm communities created primitive tool-making industry. Tool-making was established hand-in-hand with agriculture.
In order to farm, everyone needs land. The WEF and its agents are trying to move us away from the civilizational foundation of human life. The UN and WEF agenda of 15-minute cities is a direct assault on the foundation of civilization. The 15-minute cities agenda is anti-human and a trap laid by wolves to ensnare the world in surveillance grids where people can be monitored, tracked and traced. This is also one of the reasons their plans are doomed to fail. The globalist psychos are mad to think they can restructure society into an artificial simulation that defies nature. It could no more succeed than a car with square tires.
The Freedom Movement represents the Heartland of human society. It seems in the public arena and on social media that we are in a war with the left, but the reality is we are in a war with the top. Both the left and right are being used and abused by the devious plans of the billionaire class. The Heartland of society is the bottom, the base and the foundation, which includes both the left and the right, regardless of whether they are pitted against each other or not.
While the WEF and its agents are busy restructuring the top of society, we can be working towards restructuring the bottom. The Great Reset is a restructuring on the macro level—it will lead to massive changes on the micro local level but their method is to conduct policy changes on the global level that trickle down to the local level. This enables them to conceal their hand.
We do not have access to the power brokers. Organizations such as the United Nations, WHO, the World Bank or the IMF are out of our reach. As we pointed out earlier in the article, the globalists are completely disconnected from the base of society. We do, however, have access to the local level, because we all live in cities close to our own City Halls. Our civic leaders live here in our city, and as taxpayers, our civic leaders have a vital role in representing us, so we must approach them through city hall meetings, town-halls and/or writing letters. If the citizens get in their face enough, they will back down.
The Vision Thing
Without a positive vision of the future, we are doomed. The way forward is to go backwards in time when civilization all began. Every family had its own land. Even in the early colonial days of North America, the early settlers mostly had land.
The world currently has 45 mega cities, cities with populations of 10 million or more. Imagine if the mega cities around the world, like Tokyo, New York, Mexico City and Shanghai were broken up into population centers of 1 million—instead of jamming people into increasingly hostile urban hubs, the world population can be redistributed.
The total land surface area of Earth is about 57,308,738 square miles, of which about 33% is desert and about 24% is mountainous. Subtracting this uninhabitable 57% (32,665,981 square miles) from the total land area leaves 24,642,757 square miles or 15.77 billion acres (43%) of habitable land.
This works out to about 8.4 acres per family of 4 people.
What if every family on Earth was given an acre of land, about half a football field? This idea is actually nothing new. It was first proposed by American philosopher Henry George, a man that many consider to be one of the top handful of geniuses of the 19th century. Others, such as the architect Frank Lloyd Wright, endorsed the idea of redistributing the land.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Broadacre City project, envisioned decentralizing urban sprawl and giving the common land of the United States free to the common people. This idea of spreading out our cities was completely radical then, and it still is now. Wright advised that skyscrapers be reserved for the country—this would eliminate the congested business model of cities like Manhattan where real estate is ludicrously priced.
The business workforce, since the end of the mandates is ripe for this kind of change. The pandemic mandates forced people online to conduct meetings via Zoom calls, but after the mandates were over, much of the workforce refused to return to the office. According to a recent August 14th Global News article:
“Nearly 80 per cent of Canadian employees who were surveyed by Angus Reid for Cisco Canada in February said hybrid work positively impacted their work-life balance, while the same proportion also said flexible work policies directly affect their decision to stay in or leave their job.
The fight over a return-to-office mandate prompted more than 100,000 public service workers to walk off the job earlier this year.
In another Angus Reid poll from April, 50 per cent of employees in Canada who work from home said they would look for another job if they were asked to return to the office full-time.”
Playing judo with the globalists’ agenda is doable—it just takes the right leverage to use their own weight against them. We actually can change the world for the better. It really is just a matter of getting organized, having the right strategy and being on the right side of history. Nothing can withstand the will of the people, and as long as people don’t give in, or consent, no one can be forced to do anything. Their agenda will fail.
