    While there are some weaknesses to capitalism, these elitist looters are pure evil, imo.

      "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

      John Adams"

      While this Adams quote wasn't intended toward capitalism I think it applies nearly equally. Without integrity, focus and self restraint capitalism can be misused and abused. When the ends justifies the means, measures by any means, there is a degree of moral bankruptcy. When regulation is needed to reign in abuse you are merely trading in one miscreant or one group of. miscreants for another and government is almost always far worse.

        Your John Adams quote is something I brought up a while ago in the Gulch. I agree with Adams on this point. In the last part of Atlas Shrugged, I think I recall that the Constitution was to be rewritten by the producers. What would they have changed? You know that Objectivists would object to a "religious people".

          Great minds....:)

          Over all, I think, the sentiment was more that individuals living with a personal code of conduct (morals) should prevent the need for laws governing personal conduct. Religion and Religious are broad terms, each setting common framework to a faction (group) that negated the need for laws.

          Of interest, Adams was an interesting lawyer. He was the lawyer who successfully defended the redcoats at the Boston massacre.

    The Gods of the Copybook Headings
    Rudyard Kipling (1919)
    As I pass through my incarnations in every age and race,
    I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
    Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

    We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
    That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
    But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
    So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

    We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
    Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
    But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
    That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

    With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
    They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
    They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
    So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

    When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "Stick to the Devil you know."

    On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
    (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
    Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "The Wages of Sin is Death."

    In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: "If you don't work you die."

    Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
    And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
    That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

      “That the dog returns to his vomit and the sow returns to its mire , and the burnt fools bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the fire. “
      Or “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results“ attributed to A.E.

        Yup, a repeated lack of education cycle. Always a "reset".
        Bynner: Tao #18

        When people lost sight of the way to live
        Came codes of love and honesty,
        Learning came, charity came,
        Hypocrisy took charge;
        When differences weakened family ties
        Came benevolent fathers and dutiful sons;
        And when lands were disrupted and misgoverned
        Came ministers commended as loyal.

    While Sean and Rush were calling Dumocrats “liberal” and “progressive” I was calling them socialist and communists. In recent years the term “socialist” has been used more than in the past, but I still don’t see where the likes of Pelosi, Schumer, Sanders, Clinton AOC and others are labeled as the communists that they are.
    Klaus Schwab and the others of the WEF (World Economic Forum) are pure evil.
    Schwab has been quoted as saying:
    “In the new economy (that being after his Great Reset) you will own nothing, and will be happy. We (the WEF elites) will own everything and will be very, very happy.”
    There is also a short video on YouTube in which Schwab talks about everyone being required to have a microchip installed in their bodies or brains to facilitate tracking of thoughts and activities as well as whereabouts.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UmQNA0H...

    All of the WEF members are uber-wealthy elites. You know many of them by name.
    It nearly makes one wish for a taxation plan to strip all of them of their wealth.
    Check out the video by Tim Gielen called “Who Owns The World” for another layer of the Great Reset, showing just how corporations are consolidating the world’s wealth in the hands of a few. See the link below. Mind blowing stuff.

      If you think the Davos crowd is up to no good, you don't know the half of it yet. I just picked up Elana Freeland's latest book "Geoengineered Transhumanism". This book explains how the NWO is attempting to re-engineer humanity. SARS-cov-2 is just another cog in the wheel of an on-going Psy-op.
      There is an old Chinese curse that reads: "May you live in interesting times" Times are already too interesting, thank you very much.

    This article and comments has begun to clear the fog I seem to have been in. Far from clear but it is a beginning. In the past, it seemed that there were good guys and bad guys. Since the democraps and Biden took over it has been more and more tough to identify actual good guys and bad guys. The fog blurs everything so that the bad guys can do what they want.

      I Follow these two guys: Daniel List (Dark Journalist) and Mike Adams (MilSpecOpsMonkey or Monkey Werx). They do a great job sorting the wheat from the chaff. They approach the world from opposite directions. Daniel is pure intellectual / esoteric, with a lot of deep historical prospective. Mike is rubber-meets-the-road practical/tactical. by sharing up-to-the-minute SITREPs of aircraft and ship movements world-wide, Both intensely knowledgeable in their respective fields.

    What ? The great reset? The specific topic I brought up several years ago and was told I was a conspiracy theorist. Yup its true I am. A theory is taking facts and evidence with a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.
    A conspiracy is simply more than a couple of folks working together. What is amazing is that the CI A
    asswipes were able to brainwash the sheeple into poo pooing any talk about people working together to shove a red hot poker right up liberty and freedoms asshole. It’s like hearing 4-5 lies and still trusting the liar. Let’s go Brandon , let’s go Deletes.

    I was crippled in my youth by an inquisitive mind that could never rest without knowing what was inside the box. I took my grandfather's watch apart and tried to fix it after I had magnetized it. I had been told that the magnet my uncle gave me from his specialty steel company would do that but I had to see for myself. Most 5 year-olds don't have the right tools to work to work on watches so I made a mess. My grandfather was a blacksmith, 6-10 and most people thought he was a mean man but he was more interested in knowing what I learned about magnetism and watches than all my crying because I broke his watch. When I got out of college I was more interested in making things than money. I got the opportunity to design electronic controls for a company building industrial plants around the world and since this was 1964, solid state electronics was relatively new and not everyone understood how they worked and since there was nothing to see, the little switches were silent, fast and mysterious. This left me to pretty much do whatever I wanted in my designs and I was not adverse to trying new things. The reset button was my friend of last resort. When you absolutely had to start over, it was there but you lost a lot of information about what had happened, good and bad, before you crashed. We have arrived where we are by many trials and errors. Our successes and our failures have been caused by forces of nature. Understanding these forces and using them to our benefit is a tedious and difficult path but it is the only path that does not lead to a dead end. Lazy fools that want to use the reset button as a kneejerk reaction to every stumble will keep wasting our history until we don't have any.

      Passing a magnetized object very near a non-shielded (energized) transformer will de-magnetize it. Although I suspect, for you, that ship has sailed.

        Yes, that ship left port about 75 years ago. My proposed solution involved a screwdriver and a small hammer. I suspect some adult would have intervened sooner if I had introduced an energized transformer. I did get exposed to the concept of demagnification at a later date in a course called Engineering Electromagnetics taught by Doctor Edwin Barbe but by then the watch and grandfather were no longer around.

          My youthful discretion was plugging my dads car radio into a 110V outlet. That little trick did not go unnoticed as every light in the house winked out accompanied by a large bang.
          Every family member hollered out my name in unison. Yeah, I was that kid. I also went on to get my degree and learn how not to blow things up.

    hmm, maybe the great reset is designed to strip all the profitable companies and rich people of their wealth, and to transfer that wealth to the next group of politically savvy leftists.

    The great reset is designed to stop the capitalist economy as much as the government can politicaly do, and replace it by a socialist government controlled and regulated economy. Its a destructive operation, while leaving any rebuilding of the economy up to the citizens in whatever way they can. Typical of government. They pass the laws, and the people have to learn to figure out how to continue life under the new laws.

    All other variables aside. The group with the ability to enact it’s will on others, by way of technology or numbers, generally wins. Marinate on that. I’m not just talking about voting.
    Once you adopt this simple demonstrable truth into your worldview everything will start to make sense.

    I have been receiving Imprimis over the past several years. The main article is typically spot-on. The Great Reset is disturbing -- and yet it is fascinating that the global elite are so confident in their plans as to make them readily available for reading and understanding.

    Although the linked article focuses on subversion of remnant capitalism into essentially fascist, state-subordinate (if not state-owned) monopolies similar to that seen in PRC, I would submit that the Great Reset is also aimed at obliterating remnant cultural and social harmony that was achieved during the relatively capitalist period that preceded Wilson (1912), the events of 1913 (Federal Income Tax, the Federal Reserve, J.P. Morgan's death), and the Great War. It's also aimed at the nationalism and nationalist traditions that enfold or accompany those cultures and that relative social harmony.

    Considering the US as an example, why and how did people of diverse national, cultural backgrounds find a relatively peaceful and harmonious "live-and-let-live" existence in major US cities until the advent of Wilsonian progressivism? If there wasn't some universal attraction to swim-or-sink culture (e.g. in NYC prior to Wilson), why did millions forsake other countries and risk the journey to arrive and enjoy it?

    But today, with government social safety nets in place (e.g. universal medical coverage in California), when millions of unvetted "migrants" are unleashed on European and American cultures, they become servant-activists for the Great Reset. The same can be said of smash-and-grab looters, or those who vandalize monuments to a culture they never knew or comprehended.

    Brexit, Trumpism, and the current confrontation on the Polish-Belarus border are all desperate, largely unheralded sociocultural reactions to the Great Reset.

    Build Back Broke comes from madman Klaus Schwab who wrote a book describing his plans to kill billions of humans starting with the whites. A simple internet search on this reptilian will make your skin crawl.

    Thank you! This is the first presentation of the Great Reset I've seen that gives enough detail so that we can set ourselves up to fight against it.

    Step 1 is going to be to create and sustain an economy outside the woketards' control. In particular, we will need to duplicate, or create substitutes for, critical institutions such as the banking system, so that we won't be left broke and helpless when they kick us out of theirs.

      Gab is creating an alternate economy, non-vaxx job boards, etc. If interested, it may be worth looking into,

        They're doing some, but there are parts they can't do. Word came out on another channel today that the UN is starting to revoke domain names of dissident sites directly.

          It has to start somewhere and as it grow may only get better. Besides using GABs foundation as a springboard could expedite things. Alos, I understand GAB is working toward its own crypto currancy, not that I favor it.

    Even though as AR describes somewhere--we do not have a pure form of Capitalism as there is no free market. However, at the present time it is far better than the Communist model. We as a world are moving closer to this Communist model with each passing day.
