As the World Economic Forum (WEF) met in Davos this week, there has been plenty to talk about. How will this affect each and every one of us? The WEF appears to have the ability to predict the future. What does that future look like for you or me? Can we relax now that the ‘pandemic’ is fizzling out? The short answer is no, and here are a few reasons why.
A report released by the WEF, Global Risks Report 2023, uses the term ‘polycrisis’ to explain how:
Present and future risks can also interact with each other to form a polycrisis, a cluster of related global risks with compounding effects, such that the overall impact exceeds the sum of each part.
The report has been produced in partnership with Marsh McLennan and Zurich Insurance Group, a body which is a long-term reporting interest of UK Column. Marsh McLennan is the world’s leading professional service firm in ‘risk, strategy and people’.
‘Polycrisis’—the new buzzword for 2023, oddly redolent of omnishambles.
Have you read Iain Davis’ excellent UK Column article on accelerationism? If not, I highly recommend it. As the narrative is ramped up and our everyday lives are becoming more disrupted by the second, our very existence appears to have launched into the future, without us even being able to appreciate the present. As we hurtle at alarming speed towards a scary ‘strange new world’, not only are we seeing time fly; we are also seeing an escalation in pretty much everything around us. I can only liken it to being forced under water only to be allowed a quick gasp before being forced under again.
Monday a new variant, Tuesday a new war, Wednesday no oil, Thursday no health service, Friday no trains, Saturday no air travel, Sunday take a breath—because it’s all going to start again on Monday. The variety of current emergencies and disasters is simply dizzying. Just when you think you are through one catastrophe, another one is hurtling your way.
Immanuel Kant, and before him the framers of the 1648 Peace of Westphalia, called for ‘perpetual peace’: republics living in harmony and amity, no standing armies needed. In contrast, the President of the World Bank, David Malpass, said this at Fragility Forum 2022, Development and Peace in Uncertain Times:
We estimate that 23 countries—with a combined population of 850 million people—currently face high- or medium-intensity conflict. The number of “conflict countries” has doubled over the past decade. This has triggered massive refugee flows.
Beyond the tragic human cost, fragility, conflict, and violence threatens efforts to end extreme poverty. Over 300 million people in these settings experienced acute food insecurity in 2021.
Conflict, fragility, and violence cut across all income groups and the poor are the most affected. They add to the damage caused by COVID-19 and now by the war in Ukraine. Our estimates show that hundreds of millions of families are suffering reversals in development and the most significant economic crisis in almost a century.
Indicators of poverty, growth, inequality, nutrition, education, and security are all rapidly deteriorating rather than improving as we would hope in a developing world. In addition, rising inflation and interest rates are hitting the worlds poorest the hardest.
The global landscape is increasingly complex and includes long-standing and new challenges to peace, development, and prosperity.
For many reading this, the survival instinct has well and truly kicked in. Many of you will be preparing for what appears the inevitable. The main agenda has now infiltrated and disrupted many of our lives like an uninvited parasite, inveigling its way into every aspect of daily life. The intention to depopulate the planet is only part of the plan. Earth was already depopulating, with India and China—the two colossi that together make up 36% of the global population—still well below the replication rate of 2.1 children.
From transhumanism to posthumanism
The plan was never to induce depopulation per se; it was to depopulate quickly—a way to eliminate humans in order to start all over again. Remodelling us, transforming us into a superhuman species. Buckle up, as we enter the age of posthumans, and hurtle at high speed into the new age of ‘Transhumanism 2.0’. Why leave unaugmented humans in the model when starting from scratch? They would only mess up the grand plans.
From an early age, the posthuman plan will be to implant bodies with medical devices; change the natural chemistry of our anatomy for synthetic chemicals; rewire the brain; swap our blood for synthetic fluid. The aim will be to merge bodies with machines. Sounds more like Frankenstein’s monster to me.
A brand new species, purpose-created so that it can integrate with a machine workforce and doesn’t require expensive maintenance and sustenance; one that will have the decency to pop off on actuarial schedule, so as not to require costly social care in old age. Disability will be a thing of the past; genomic engineering and stem cell ‘therapies’ to remove those irritating faulty genes will be a thing of the present. ‘Faults’ will be eradicated at source by engineers. I call it playing God.
The ultimate ‘Build Back Better’ campaign is in full swing. I believe the Build Back Better global message, the one we all became so familiar with, was in fact code for those controlling the narrative and agenda. It translated to its framers as: ‘Game on’. What better way than to wipe out millions of elderly, disabled and vulnerable people, who eat up a big chunk of the social care and welfare budgets? A simple prick in the arm will accelerate their demise and the cost to society. As they become sick, they seek further help from the very hands that made them sick in the first place.
However, as if that was not evil enough, our Governments don’t appear to be discriminating, and anyone and everyone whose skills or knowledge which will not be needed, appear to be a target. Humans, as we know them now, won’t be welcome in a ‘brave NEW world’, only Transhumans 2 will be welcome. It is worth noting at this point that there are already plans to roll out Transhumans 3. So who decides who gets ‘upgraded’, silo’d or recycled? Will you be a machine or a human? No one knows because, as of writing, there are no ethical regulations.
Who else is on the target list; whose skills won’t be required in the new world? How many of the professions that we have become so reliant on are on the extinction list? We can already see a few on the decline. Who would want a surgeon when a robot will do the job instead? Who would want a shelf-stacker when shops become a thing of the past? Who wants a delivery driver when there are drones? Who wants an estate agent when we will own nothing? Who needs a cashier when there is no cash? Get the picture? Logan’s Run (1976) comes to mind: be young and then dematerialise.
Those on welfare are scheduled for inclusion on the target list, too. Benefits, which are seen by government and the think tanks that steer government as too expensive and generous, are in reality mere crumbs off a very rich table. Watch those crumbs being swept away, at pace. Are you deemed of use to society? None of us is ultimately indispensable, of course; however, suddenly, many of us have become not just theoretically replaceable but highly dispensable in practice, with immediate effect. Who stays and who goes? A few decide.
Escalating and accelerating the narrative is the latest strategy of tension—that being a generations-old governmental approach, as Iain Davis and Johannes Eisleben have described for UK Column—to create fear and confusion. Information-cascades become impossible to keep track of (another clever way to confuse and misinform), with official departments and agencies complaining that new procedures and guidance are causing mayhem, as no-one can keep up with the neverending stream of new instructions, protocols and guidance. The last three years have been one long emergency after emergency. War, pandemic, cost of living crisis, energy shortages, distribution problems, political unrest, civil unrest, disruption on every level have dominated our days and nights.
In the beginning, we were babied, asked to stay at home, stay off work, mask up, have thermometer ‘guns’ aimed at our heads. We were paid not to do anything or go anywhere, except listen to the fear bulletins or watch the endless rounds of Downing Street briefings in order for us to feel anxious, worried, nervous and depressed. This was intravenous doom and gloom 24/7. This was the optimum way to spread the most toxic virus of all—fear. The only viruses at play were in the realm of the internet: those manufactured by Google, Facebook et al., insisting that any concerns contrary to the mainstream narrative were malicious conspiracy theories and misinformation from fanatical anti-vaxxers.
I mentioned above the new buzzword, polycrisis: it is already in Collins' Dictionary and is defined as “the simultaneous occurrence of several catastrophic events”. Wiktionary notes that it is already getting on for a decade old. I am not alone in bringing this new word to your attention; others are noticing, too. Perhaps you remember the occasion when in 2016 the then President of the European Union, Jean-Claude Juncker, adumbrated the term ‘polycrisis’ when referring to the challenges facing the EU, euro-area stability, global economic crisis and irregular migration. It appears to be what is happening right now. Where did that ubiquitous Luxembourger disappear to, anyway? Rats and ships come to mind.
In 2022, the Cascade Institute produced a discussion paper entitled What is a Global Polycrisis? And how is it different from a systemic risk?, by Scott Janzwood and Thomas Homer Dixon. The authors wrote:
The concept “polycrisis” was first and very briefly introduced by the French philosopher, sociologist, and complexity theorist Edgar Morin and co-author Anne Brigitte Kern in their 1999 book Homeland Earth: A Manifesto for a New Millennium. These authors wrote of “interwoven and overlapping crises” affecting humanity and argued that the most “vital” problem of the day was not any single threat but the “complex intersolidarity of problems, antagonisms, crises, uncontrollable processes, and the general crisis of the planet”—a phenomenon they labeled the polycrisis (Morin and Kern 1999, 74).
Polycrisis will replace permacrisis as the 2022 word of the year (Collins Dictionary). Have we become immune to the terms catastrophe, disaster and emergency; inured through overuse of these devalued invocations? It would seem we are beyond shockable when a new compound noun has to do the duty of a simple noun.
Part of the polycrisis may include the alleged Project Sandman: a little-known plan describing a 100-nation agreement that, when given the green light, will see them simultaneously dump their currencies. When the decision comes, the dollar will plunge to near zero almost instantly. For us, it means all bank accounts, bonds and pension funds will be worthless. All banks and markets will freeze operations.
I would assume there will be no warning of this, in order to avoid the public panicking, long queues at the bank and empty cashpoints as the population desperately try to access their savings. As banks disappear from our towns and cities, we rely mainly for our cash withdrawals on a rapidly-dwindling stock of ATMs, an abbreviation that might as well expand to ‘At The Moment’.
One polycrisis is, in reality, many disastrous events happening in synchronicity, each of which on its own is designed to make our lives as uncomfortable, disconcerting and disruptive as possible, in the fastest possible time. A cascade of real time catastrophes, in lockstep with the obligatory cascade of information to accompany it, will be thrown at all of us with alarming speed and acceleration.
I have found it is far better to channel energies into ‘modus prepare’, not ‘modus scare’. Fear is the real ‘virus’: these terms and events are designed, engineered and manipulated to scare and confuse us. Covid-19 is here to stay: the variants will continue, as will the so called ‘vaccines’ and ‘therapeutics’. Covid-19 was the precursor to the Great Reset. Covid-19 was the catalyst that cannot be stopped. To stop it is something that cannot be brooked; that would constitute an admission that Covid was never a threat or a reality in the first place.
With that said, I would encourage everyone—in homage to Corporal Jones—not to panic, because panic creates even more chaos. Quietly pick up a torch (flashlight) on your next shopping trip, and perhaps keep a bit of cash at home just in case. There are thousands of websites that offer advice on prepping; tips and tricks for you to be as prepared as you can, even those on tight budgets.
How do you find out you are sick?
That may be a stupid question. We all know how we feel, right? Wrong. Apparently, the majority of us are too stupid to be able to determine how we ‘feel’. Digitisation appears to have infected all of our lives, almost by stealth.
Our governments want us to take care of ourselves, to consult doctors less, to save precious public money for those who ‘really need it’. We are receiving more and more reports at UK Column of people seeking medical advice because their app, their smartphone or another device (reminder: the MHRA regulates medical devices) is telling them their bodies are underperforming. Whom do you believe? Yourself, or a black screen on a smart device?
A friend informed me they were anxious and struggling to sleep. They had instructed their smartphone to monitor their sleep pattern one night. In the morning, the phone indicated they were sleep-deprived. The first port of call was to the family doctor, where they were prescribed heavy duty antidepressants. All because of a phone app. My friend tells me the worry kept them up for a further two nights. Relying on digitisation to diagnose, warn and ‘inform’ us is a dangerous game.
I would like to remind readers of what Dr James Giordano said in a 2017 lecture at Georgetown University, at timestamp 34:08, when he assumed the thin persona of an online terrorist gleefully considering the victims of his fake news:
These people are really sick with this. But then I say, others who are also infected will show subdromal [i.e. minor], predromal [i.e. even clinically insignificant] signs of lethality. And what that will be is anxiety, sleeplessness, agitation. What I’ve now done is I’ve got every individual who is diagnostically hypochondriacal, and I have got every individual who’s the worried well, flooding the public health system banging on the door.
Hypochondriac is medical parlance for the worried well. Every doctor’s surgery has a list of all frequent attenders. How many people do you know who run to a search engine, type in their symptoms and get told they could have anything from a life-ending illness to a life-threatening illness? Do you believe search engine results wholesale?
There is another new word in our vocabulary, cyberchondria, with attestation in medical literature going back five years; who knew? Anyone who is predisposed to ‘health anxiety’ will probably research their symptoms so deeply that they will turn up to professional appointments armed with their own search-engine or phone-app diagnosis.
The one silver lining to this very dark cloud is that there is a growing number of people who are now anxious about being seen to be sick, so they avoid their health professionals altogether. I must say, I identify with this group. Heading for naturopathic remedies—as opposed to allopathic medicine—is, in my opinion, the best way to go. Stay away from devices, apps and smartwatches. Look in the mirror and listen to your talking voice: if you look OK, feel OK and sound OK, you more than likely are perfectly OK. If you are not, do you really want to go to the health ‘service’ and risk your health further? Everyone must make their own decision.
Together with some associates, I had the good fortune (or not) to be a public attender of the monthly MHRA board meeting held on 17 January 2023. Determined not to disappoint, we witnessed even more of the same self-congratulatory love-ins as in November. There was a reluctant admission from Stephen Lightfoot in the chair that the MHRA was not independent, but instead was accountable to the executive branch of government in the form of the Department of Health and Social Care. Clearly, Britain's medicines regulator is having an identity crisis. Is the MHRA a regulator or an enabler? Who owns the regulator?
Hoping it wouldn’t be noticed, CEO Dame June Raine lowered her voice when acknowledging furtively that funding from the Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI) and the Gates Foundation had been critical in being able to ‘fund the pandemic’. You would already have known as much in spring 2020 if you were a UK Column website reader. But what was the funding needed for? I feel another Freedom of Information request coming on. Blink and you may miss it. For UK Column viewers who subscribe, the clip was exclusively shown on UK Column News Extra at 10 minutes into the 18 January episode.
The agenda, which included the item Patient Safety, did not appear to be sufficient to warrant my own pre-submitted question—on patient safety!—to be answered. My question was this: was the Patient Safety Commissioner—appointed as she was as a result of Baroness Julia Cumberlege’s report, First Do No Harm (the report of the Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review)—ever going to be invited to an MHRA board meeting? Thus far, no-one appears to know or care. Attending the board meeting were many of the vaccine injured, who were also ignored and their questions left unanswered.
Managing Heart Failure at Home
The NHS has just announced a ‘new approach’ to managing heart failure at home. The approach, called Managing Heart Failure @home, helps people to live well with heart failure. UK Column has been reporting on the NHS Long Term Plan for over a year, with its commitment to deliver personalised care to 2½ million people by 2023/2024.
It is also worth noting that ‘personal budgets’ for NHS care will also be introduced. Marketed as a ‘personalised approach’, in reality this means remote care and enabling patients to look after their own health needs. With rising cases of heart failure, myocarditis and pericarditis, one has to ask, why now? Could the rising number of patients with heart failure be increasing because of certain injections?
Cancer patients waiting for hours for treatment
In the i news, it is stated that nurses are reporting that cancer patients are having to wait many hours for their chemotherapy. Many say they felt compelled to go on strike because they cannot bear to watch patients having their treatments delayed or cancelled on non-strike days. The long waits are intolerable for very unwell patients, with many having to wait hours for appointments, treatments and blood transfusions.
The United Kingdom is currently on a mission to test as many healthy people as possible for cancer. With NHS waiting lists projected to hit 13 million, one would wonder what happens if a positive test is returned. Do those alerted to the reality of cancer go to the end of the waiting list, or are they fast-tracked for treatment?
Cancer diagnostic specialist Grail was formed out of the gene-sequencing giant Illumina. Its multi-cancer early detection blood test has the ability to detect more than 50 types of cancer, across all stages. Financed by Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates (you may feel reassured to know), Grail is now embedded in our NHS system. The Galleri Trial can be found here.
With all that said, keep an eye on UK Column for the latest news. We try to bring you reports that you may not see or hear about anywhere else. Sadly, we are hearing—from many more of you now—harrowing reports of relatives trapped in hospitals, isolated and alone. Many are not returning home alive.
The Covid-19 agenda was the precursor to the Great Reset, as I mentioned above. Covid is a subject that will never be far from our headlines. Why? Because if it is dropped, those responsible would have to admit it was all a lie.
My final words this week are: don’t be scared, just get prepared.
Until next week,
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you [behave] like men, be strong. I Corinthians 16:13
