I just found out that Javier Milei was elected President of Argentina. At first, I was surprised. Then a little excited to see some change on the horizon, until it occurred to me that I was being taken for a lamb. It isn’t the first time that I’ve been tricked by the media, but I’m getting better at catapulting out of the narrative and back into reality sooner and with greater speed. It’s a learned hunch (intuitive skill?) from personal experience that not everyone has had the opportunity to develop. At one point, I sought some counseling and my therapist pointed out this tendency I had to drift into fantasy as a coping mechanism. “Your daily chore is to stay in the facts,” she said. I do my best!
Characterized by his peculiar moppy hair and ferocity, Javier Milei is known by his fans as “the madman” and “the wig.” He refers to himself as “the lion” and he looks like one too. The media calls him a right wing populist, but he’s really a libertarian. This means he believes in small government, free markets (no government interference), and private property.
The Libertarian Party was founded in 1971, when the U.S. abandoned the gold standard. It is the third largest political party in the United States, established as an alternative to a two-party system that was bound to end in runaway inflation. Are we almost there? Runaway inflation? While it’s debatable—inflation now over 140% in Argentina—Javier Milei says there’s only one way out. Politicians must stop printing money! He wants to do away with the peso and the Central Bank, making the U.S. dollar Argentina’s national currency. But here’s the kicker; inflation is the devaluation of currency and the U.S. dollar is leading the way!
Javier Milei is another TV celebrity type, like many other politicians, but he also plays a prominent role in the World Economic Forum, famous for its Great Reset agenda and the infamous slogan: You’ll own nothing and be happy. A few months after Covid-19 shocked the world, Klaus Schwab, Chairperson of the World Economic Forum, rolled out a book: COVID-19: The Great Reset. This gave us a clue as to what was unfolding. Open the book (or click the link above), and scroll to page 3, to About Covid-19: The Great Reset. Then read, “Since it made its entry on the world stage, COVID-19 has dramatically torn up the existing script of how to govern countries, live with others and take part in the global economy.”
Note: the title defines Covid-19 as “The Great Reset” by way of a colon (Covid-19: The Great Reset). Something made its “entry on the WORLD STAGE” and the “existing SCRIPT” was torn up. The art of filmmaking or the art of politics? This brings me to William Shakespeare, “All the world’s a stage.” Strange thing is this quote drives my one and only novel, where the protagonist meets a Frenchman named Daniel and joins him on an epic adventure to uncover the intelligence of love. The protagonist was effectually me, and an abstract version of my real-life relationship at the time. It took me three years to write while I was in relationship with a man similar to my fictional Daniel. I spiced up the novel with my work experiences in Africa, South America, and Europe, but the emotional journey was very much the same.
I ask you, why is it that there’s so many actors turned politicians? Ronald Regan was probably the most famous, but why so many since? Like the love plot in my novel, maybe politics is something between reality and fiction. If the financial system were failing, if we were about to go over an energy cliff, if natural resources and fossil fuels were being depleted forever, if the national debt were too big to sustain, would someone tell us? Would the media announce it on the 6 o’clock news? I kind-of don’t think so. I kind-of think the directors of the production (meaning whomever is in charge of the world system) would come up with a quiet and brilliant plan to “fix” it, in their favor of course.
If that plan involved anything like depopulation, which quite frankly might be the only way at this point, I’m quite certain that the 6 o’clock news, or the 11 o’clock news, isn’t going to level with us about it. “Okay, the planet and economic system cannot accommodate all of you, so which of you people wants to go see the Big Guy in the sky? We need about seven billion volunteers to bring us back to where the world population was 150 years ago.” Would you raise your hand? Something tells me information flow (especially when it negatively impacts people), doesn’t work like that. It’s sneaky, and it’s clever. It might be similar to what the vaccine pioneer Jonas Salk wrote in The Survival of the Wisest. The wisest! Not the herd.
The Bible talks a lot about sheep. Sheep aren’t curious, and sheep don’t generally leave their farms. They eat and sleep and would probably watch Netflix and NFL if they could, although they might not laugh and cry or scream, or even have a clue about what’s going on. They have no idea why they’re on the farm, or that it’s even a farm, or that there are other farms; they just do the same thing over and over. Like the Bible teaches, the majority of the population are like sheep. It’s not a bad thing; it just means that most people don’t want to know what they don’t have to know. They just want to be positive and happy, eating the grass and laying around in it. Sheep brains aren’t as big as ours, so I’m not sure why most human beings are herd animals. Do you know?
Sometimes I like to have a glass of wine at the end of a long day and chill. I like to read things that make me feel good and watch psychological thrillers. I like to have fun! But there comes a point when you just can’t close your eyes to something you’ve understood, or have the same kind of fun you did before. And I’m there. I’ve learned to be quiet around the majority of my family and friends, because I don’t want conflict. I just want to enjoy them and the last stretch of this aberration of easy modern abundance and post-industrial living. I went through something like the five stages of grief, and I’ve accepted what’s coming, kind-of like Alan Urban does in his Collapse Musings. Life is changing no matter who is elected or what happens, and I’ll embrace it as an opportunity to grow and be better.
In his book Propaganda (1928), Edward Bernays discusses the manmade systems and structures that manage the public mind. He explains that the population is controlled by a hidden government that uses “intelligent propaganda” in society. Note, he wrote this long before Operation Mockingbird, a “large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early years of the Cold War and attempted to manipulate domestic American news media organizations for propaganda purposes.” When you look, you find a plethora of propaganda throughout history. Nelson Rockefellar, born in 1908, had a blatant history with political propaganda. You can read about it here.
Today, I see the World Economic Forum as the film crew having written the script and cast the actors (whether they know it or not) for The Great Reset, premiering now. It’s where we change the economic system and governments because they’re failing. Like anyone who hasn’t seen or experienced the whole production, I can’t tell you any more than what I notice unfolding. I have no idea how it’s going to end. I don’t even know if it’s really happening. Javier Milei was a thunderbolt for me. He came out of left field, although they call him right wing, and I wasn’t expecting him to win. But since he has won, and he holds a position in the World Economic Forum, I’m inclined to believe he is not a victory for the anti-establishment leadership. He is a character in the plot/plan unfolding for that Great Reset. It has, it is, and it will continue to involve a great deal of pain for many people.
Our world is in shambles, and some days I am not thinking or feeling right. I have only a few readers, and no job, but I am a writer and a mother, and I honor and trust in the process of who I am and what I do. It’s refreshing to disconnect from this world and find joy in my relationship with nature, and that’s what I’ve been doing lately. Always curious, I’m now learning how to grow individual strands of probiotic bacteria. I found Dr. William Davis, and it seems the future of medicine is better understanding what isolated strands of probiotic bacteria do for us physically and mentally. He wrote a great book: Undoctored: Why Health Care Has Failed You and How You Can Become Smarter Than Your Doctor.
I think antibiotics and modern (Western) health care are similar to the world’s military and nuclear superpowers. They are both driven by wealth. They destroy with no inkling to foster a symbiotic relationship with nature, our selves, and each other. Antibiotics are like nuclear bombs to our microbiome, and I’m learning the art of rebuilding. I’m still not doing well in the market, and I’ve had some health challenges, but I’m happier now than I’ve ever been doing simple things and living a modest life. I am thankful for my setbacks because overcoming them has taught me a lot. I’ll leave you with some words from Vincent Van Gogh, “In spite of everything, I shall rise again; I will take up my pencil, which I have forsaken in my great discouragement, and I will go on with my drawing.” I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving, xoxoxo with love.
