We are the Universe governing itself.

Is the ship sinking? Cuz the rats just jumped.

So Europe (read: The World since the economy is now global) just issued Greece a loan to help it keep up with the interest payments they need to make on their previous loans.

Greece will require extreme economic growth to meet the terms of that agreement, let alone pay back the loan.

Growth, at least the kind they’re measuring, requires copious amounts of cheap energy.

If anything were to happen to Greece’s energy supply, all economic hell would break loose.

Well wouldn’t you know it but Europe also has also put an oil embargo on Iran* who just happens to supply Greece with 15% of their cheap oil.

So Greece is being setup to default, hard.

When you know a fighter is going down in the 5th, what do you do with that information if you like money?

Now, look at this long list of big swinging dicks that quietly resigned just before the Greek deal was struck.

Please draw your own conclusions.

*Now that oil supply is inelastic it is getting ugly fast. Expect hoarding and new alliances. Hell the US sanctions are backfiring too. Forcing Iran into gold for oil contracts with rapidly growing countries like China and India is the last thing we want to do right now. So much for the world’s reserve currency.

You are the “wizards” of this age. I, but dabble.

You’ve demonstrated your power. Are you ready to take responsibility? With the internet, people can govern themselves. All they need are the tools to do it. I am the universe asking you to step up. Use your power to bring the gift of self-governance to humanity. #selfgov

I’m donating this domain to humanity as soon as humanity is ready to use it.

DIRECT ACTION NETWORK: The Monsanto Campaign

There has been an amazing flurry of interest in using the Collective Contract to arrest Monsanto’s economic activity and make the corporation change its activities permanently.

Not surprising really!

The US is going to smell its own fart this time…

War with Iran seems imminent. Don’t believe what you hear from the Main Stream Media, it is for the oil.

If you haven’t heard, the US just imposed sanctions against Iran that make it difficult for the country to sell its oil. The US can do this, I presume, because it controls the currency that other countries need to buy first to purchase oil with; the US Dollar.

"It is in all our interests that the arteries of global trade are kept free, opening and running" - From sanctions against Iran above in reference to Iran’s threats to close the Strait of Hormuz.

The US sanctions seem to constrict a few arteries along with Europe’s proposed oil embargo.

If China weren’t in a dispute with Iran about pricing right now I bet you’d see some sparks coming from the Chinese. China will probably use these sanctions, and the strength of the Chinese resistance to them, as a bargaining chip to get the prices they want for the oil they need.

By constricting the blood supply of US Dollars to Iran, the US has created a perfect environment for other currency carrying arteries to evolve and grow.

By enforcing these sanctions, the US is diminishing the US Dollar’s reserve currency status and actually accelerating its demise by creating a niche which will be filled promptly by another currency; the Chinese Yuan.

I hate to think what will happen when this turns violent.

One thing is for sure, when violence erupts oil and gasoline are going to get really expensive. I’m betting ammunition will too followed by everything else shortly after.

This will dump the US further into this recession. The housing market is going to go down, again, though not like it did last time. The commercial real estate market is probably going to tank though.

The good news is, interest rates will still be great because of the huge demand for US Dollars. In times of crisis, investors buy US treasuries because they’re a safer investment than the stock market. To get the money to buy treasuries, investors sell stock leading to a stock market decline.

There will be more layoffs and more unemployment. Plan ahead, plant a garden.

I have no clue what China will do when Iran gets attacked. The dollar increasing in value will be good for China when it comes to selling US consumers crap they don’t need. The recession, on the other hand, will cause US consumers to spend less of their money on crap they don’t need.

They’ll probably do something… probably.

PRO TIP: If gold and silver ever rise sharply along with the US Dollar, panic like I just dropped an asshole-eating-spider down the back of your pants.

Occupy Earth 2011

I’m not sure if you’ve seen this yet but it is worth taking a look at.

Occupy Earth 2011

MISSION STATEMENT: End Corporate Greed and its influence on Government and Elected Officials that have a direct impact on human welfare, society, and mankind as a whole. These atrocities have been ongoing for decades without positive actions from the Banking sector, Wall Street, and all Government Officials who have regarded their own interest before the fate of man. Greed has enveloped our Nation’s Capitol to the point that Lobbyist run the country behind secrete/closed door committees or by funding key members of congress for their own agenda.

I’m not saying their demands are the right solution. I’m just pointing out that the world has woken up and realized that it has been pooping in its own playpen.

The internet has allowed billions of people (mostly millennials) to have the same emotional reactions to scary events in real time.

The next time you hear the term, “social network,” please think, “neural network.”

They all see some asshole indignantly pepper-spraying completely peaceful protesters in California - at the same time.

They all react with anger, horror, humor, glee and/or disbelief - at the same time.

They all spread their opinions through their own social networks, - at the same time.

As they read the rest of the world’s reactions, they find other nodes (people) in the network that they agree with and sometimes they connect with (befriend or follow) them; strengthening their place in the social network.

Their synchronized individual actions, taken for whatever reason, are coming together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

Global thoughts are emerging from these social networks.

When they say, “You can’t evict an idea who’s time has come,” they aren’t kidding.

This is one of the world’s first ideas. The world has even identified it as an idea of “its own,” and is currently quite amazed at this realization.

The world has become self-aware.

This shift was so subtle that it is tempting, but impossible, to dismiss.

The most amazing thing to me so far is that the solutions (some of the demands in the first link above) that these millennials are suggesting are somewhat naive while their hobbies and passions (crocheting, knitting, urban gardening, other traditional skills and extreme love of sustainability) make them appear to be wise beyond their years.

They have a unique combination of ability and opportunity that allows them to form strong, dignified bonds with people both in real life and over the internet.

They are the first generation of specialized human that allow one part of the Earth to communicate with the rest of the Earth in real time.

Hopefully, by the time they they come to realize their immense strength, they’ll have learned enough to be both clever, and wise.

I love you all for what you are doing and what you’re about to do.
