Act II: Solidifying Control
We the People just want to live and enjoy our lives and not be bothered by excessive government interference. The government is hell-bent on ensuring we have to beg and pay them for their permission to do even basic things. How do we find freedom in this world? We will touch on that in Act IV. The topic here is control. Through that age-old approach of Problem, pain, solution, what “solution” are the-powers-that-be (TPTB) going to try and sell to us?
I would bet my last devalued dollar that they’re going to roll out the red carpet for Universal Basic Income. Universal Basic Income is nothing more than giving people a check each month, just for living and breathing. They’re going to tell us it’s to “Counter increasing automation, which is leading to mass unemployment”, or to “Help compensate for weak wage growth”. Don’t believe it for a second.
Automation is growing massively due to excessive legislation on employers, which leads to very high costs associated with employing a human. Taxation, and the specific things which are taxed, are also largely targeted at businesses who have employees. A newer, huge addition, is healthcare taxes. When government forces a business to pay, let’s say, a 20% tax premium on the wage of an employee, that’s a motivation for the business to automate. When that premium is increased to 45%, the motivation is greater. That is what Obamacare did, using rough numbers. It is my guess that Obamacare was rolled out specifically to drive an increase in the adoption rate of automation. Just so we are clear, each of the above factors are completely under the control of The-Powers-That-Be. So if these factors are pushing employers into automation and away from employing humans, it is because the TPTB want US to be unemployed. This paves the road to Universal Basic Income.
What is wrong with Universal Basic Income?
UBI equates exactly, precisely, and 100% of the time, with ensuring you can never, ever become an independent, soverign individual. What is money, or more precisely, What does $5 million in the bank mean to you? It is the freedom to do what you want. You can vacation, or not work, and you will be ok. What is $50,000 in the bank? The freedom to quit a job you hate, and know you’ll survive. What is $5,000 in your pocket? The right to protest in the streets and know you can get a hotel, food, and a ride home.
So then, what is a $500 UBI monthly check in the mail, without any leftover to save? Slavery. You never have the excess which allows you to take a chance, or resist an employer, or fight to change the sytem.
UBI is devious in that it appears generous and sensible at first glance. The truth is quite the opposite.
The author has spent considerable hours pouring through the 1gb dumb of data provided by Wikileaks, and impact of what the CIA has been doing is considerable. Currently it is apparent that the CIA is collecting data streams off of Cars, TVs, Phones, Computers, and even baby monitors. These revelations are HUGE. The average Joe probably is not going to even notice, but on Tue March 7th, the world changed.
Imagine a world where the PTB can know what you are doing, who you are doing it with, when/where, and even why. This level of data collection is a Globalists fantasy world. With perfect information comes perfect control. Also, with perfect information comes the ability of the CIA-supported corporatocracy to negotiate all business deals with a substantial advantage. Or, if those over the table refuse to play ball, to make the perfect subtle threat of exposure of vital secrets.
Within weeks, we’re going to see companies jumping over themselves to close these security holes. In an economy based on lies, threats, inside information and a fiat currency reliant on all of those, what effect do you think this will have on the economy as a whole?
