The State of our Paradigm – January 2013

I have the awareness that the paradigm we are all within is due for a reality check soon, if nothing changes, perhaps in the next few years … unless there is a planet wide epiphany which substantially changes the values that our current culture is based upon, other than that the outcome is inevitable … one can only speculate as the structure of the new paradigm, after the bumpy journey we will take to arrive there.

To me the world we are in is like watching the inevitability of a disaster in slow motion … while we run around looking busy, as if arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic (after it struck the iceberg) … strangely all this is known, predicted even, but no hard decisions are being taken … we are in denial … ineffective … we are in a continual state of stamping out “spot” fires that crop up, as with Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain plus, plus and possibly Italy and of course the European Union as a whole and the USA –  and the worldwide spiralling deficit .… . Once we have done all this, it only takes us back to where we were before, we are still in crisis.

Without taking any hard decisions, the outcome is inevitable as deficits grow, we have in place the ideal setting for the death knell of the European Union, the USA and many other countries in the world as we know it.

Please see countries ranked by External Debt here –  Worldwide, we are in a terminal situation …

For me … we are past the time to make those hard decisions –  surely some of these decisions should include abolishing all debt that was directly caused by the meltdown and change the laws so that all people whose illegal behaviour caused it, confiscate their money and let Banks and other institutions that were and still are vulnerable fail, as even today, Big Banks have failed the OCC Risk Tests –  their Corporate governance is terminally flawed, for their is no plan of what to do, and no one is in control anywhere … here is the link to that report concerning risk tests from an American Bank article … and those men and women whose greed caused this catastrophe, and so directly benefited from it, pay for their crimes. It won’t happen of course, but hard decisions are needed, that spread the load of cuts across all … not just focusing on social programs which always seem to be such a easy target –  for a start lets look at Political and bureaucratic sizes, salaries and perks.

The only country that did see the light after the Global Financial meltdown was Iceland. Instead of bailing out the banks and the status quo, they bailed out the people, the citizens and put the bankers into prison … beautiful… the Short Video story of that event is here

However when the system of money itself breaks down, say within the next 5–6 years, definitely within the decade – we will have no defense, we will be leaderless … as Governments which are at best ineffectual … although they would like us to believe otherwise, will not have the answers … because they are all paralysed with fear, whilst the people in Government are clever at manipulation, they are hardly intelligent nor have the taste or the backbones to make the decisions necessary … because the status quo will be chaos, they will ask what to do, because they won’t know, they will do nothing effective, and what they will do, will be to try and maintain the status quo –  which of course is already in transition and so no longer exists –  we may, I believe trend towards a state of anarchy, then at some point after the darkness and the inevitable gross hardships … we will hopefully see the dawn and Humanity will start again.

All those learning experiences we will go through – but will we learn, going on the past, we won’t, because in the future as now, we will say how could that happen to us ….. so because we have no backbone, no ability to see the situation as it really is … all of us are living in a kind of fantasy future … Now we look to a future, in “x” generations from now, we are told we will surface as we come out of the fiscal hole that greed and our leadership have dug for us … meanwhile the Politicians themselves don’t seem to be in any state of hardship …. however the costs of this head in the sand approach will lead to hardship on a untold scale as essential infrastructure breaks down – transport, food, communications …. the only upside is at the end of all this … those of humanity that survive will in effect have a clean slate.

Basically the cause of this tragedy is our own Arrogance, indifference, indecision, ineffectiveness and greed … what will they say of us … it was inevitable, why didn’t they see it coming … when it is so inevitable, why aren’t we doing something about it now ?

The only way we can stop this recurring Groundhog day cycle, so that it doesn’t happen again in the future is to change what we value, and that requires that we educate our children, now and for all time, so that in our arrogance and ignorance in the future, we might say “that was then, this is now, it won’t happen to us” –

But of course it will !

Let’s look soon at how we can minimize the effects of the transition from where we are now … to where we will end up !

    no one ever quits smoking until they start coughing ….

    earth is a school for egos … no one gives that limitation up except by grace (another word for higher frequency) … entrenched ignorance until 2035, a few breakthroughs by 2070 … and after 200-300 years, an evolved consciousness will be more normal

      Hi Greg … Yes, earth by and large is led by ego … it is so patently flawed … but then humanity feels like a primary school yard … where a couple of ten year old children are saying “mine is bigger than yours” … for our survival, the assumption you are making is that (1) we don’t destroy ourselves through Monsanto type manipulation of the gene pool (2) We don’t kill each other with a real WMD or (3) Gaea doesn’t decide that she has given this her experiment (humanity) enough time to grow up … she could wipe the slate clean and start again in a heartbeat … perhaps she will go back to the sea .. and restart with Dolphins (if she wants a shortcut) or perhaps cockroaches … so Yes I hope that there is a way for humanity to survive … about the 200-300 years … we shall see … how about we make a date now for coffee ?
