A Time To Speak Out

Tyler Durden's picture


From Mike Krieger of KAM LP

A Time to Speak Out

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

- Bob Dylan

Carl Quintanilla:  Futures were down 30 now down 175.
Joe Kernan: These pictures (Greece) aren’t helping.
- This morning on CNBC

The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.

Zbigniew Brzezinski in his book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era

I wasn’t going to write this week so this will be extremely brief.  The entire charade that has been propagated on humanity is coming completely unglued and there is absolutely no stopping it.  I have only one request to those that are reading this.  If you know of specific incidences of corruption or serious wrong-doing come forth and tell everyone now.  This is your last chance.  When this things breaks the 99% of people on this planet that have been unwilling victims of a very small group of elitist political and corporate players and others will be so completely destroyed they are going to go after people and in a very serious way.  This must be done calmly and without violence but it must be done and it will be done.  At that point the backstabbing and selling out by people that previously held alliances with one another will be so chaotic it is going to be tough to separate those did the most harm from those that were willfully ignorant.  I fear that being willfully ignorant will not be a defense that will appease many so it is best to come out before that point is reached.  For those that have read A Tale of Two Cities or just generally know your history remember what happened in the aftermath of the French Revolution.  There was illogic and indiscriminate punishment applied in many cases.  I hope this never happens and I will fight to prevent it all the way but the best thing one can do now is come clean if there is anything you need to come clean about.  Bob Dylan said it best in the quote at the top.  This is the chance.  Do not let it pass you by because of fear or greed.  Truth is all that matters.
Turn the Television Off

I barely watch any television anymore.  It has been this way for several years now and it is the best thing I have ever done in my life.  I turn it on to CNBC when I wake up for 15 minutes or so and then I watch reruns of “The Office” before I go to sleep.  That said, the 15 minutes I get from CNBC in the morning is invaluable.  It reinforces why I don’t watch tv and it also reminds me why many investors are so lost.  As the futures plunged this morning Joe Kernan stated “ These pictures aren’t helping.”  Helping what exactly?  Helping an agenda.  An economic philosophy that unfortunately dominates our current financial system.  A system that is NOT free market in many crucial ways, but rather is top down autocratic system run by Central Bankers (you have to read this  That profession needs to go or be changed entirely back to its root functions.   Later in the news segment one of the guests begged the CNBC anchors to take the pictures off the screen.  They don’t play well in Disneyland.  Television can be great for certain purposes but do not for a minute think you are getting the news of the day.  You see what you are permitted to see.  Mainstream journalism is dead.   
The Latest Martin Armstrong Piece

I also wanted to implore everyone to read the latest piece by political prisoner Martin Armstrong.  Here is the link.
If we don’t stand up now then the world envisioned by Zbigniew Brzezinski may come to pass.  It will be a technocratic neo-feudalism.  Your children and grandchildren are going to ask what you did during this time.  How you stood up.  What side were you on.  We can’t let this chance slip away.

I heard Joe K. say that this morning, as well, as I was preparing to go the office.

What a dunce is he.  Masquerading as a "journalist" while acting like a "perma-bull" and studying/relaying nothing about what is actually unfolding in the capital markets today.  Instead...he picks a side.

Just a sad display.

I'm sorry I slept with my boss' daughter back when I was 17.  I was jumping on pretty much any female that expressed an interest back then, and it wasn't right for me to take her virginity simply for short-term benefit and the convenience of at-work "nooners."


Still, it's not like we were doing it on his desk or anything.

No unstated confessions here...I have a job that requires forced confessions (a tiny bit akin to what that CFR f*cker Brzezinski envisioned) so I get mine out on a semi-regular basis. Ok, downloading TV shows off bittorrent every now and then is as close to a new confession as I'll get.

Nice pivot. I was wondering when ZH would begin transitioning away from being primarily a platform for criticizing (current) policy.

While it's fun to watch the melt-down, truthfully, it's just a little bit voyeuristic. Also, no one likes to be told "I told you so"; for those revelling in their short-term joy of being proven right, enjoy it while it lasts.

Future events are going to demand action - the People will be seeking leaders who can provide both answers & solutions. Hopefully, ZH can provide a useful community tool towards achieving these goals.

+1 ... good post.

I agree on the "voyeuristic fun" ... finally, the world makes sense to me.

However, a great value I see in Zero Hedge is that it's a forum where in-depth discussions of the goings-on is possible.  That is absolutely NOT available in the big media, in the ruling class, at the local water cooler, and not even in academic economic circles.

Agree or disagree (room for intelligent comments on all sides), this is the forum that is actually able to "break down" what's going on, translate for the common man, and keep watchdog eyes on the ruling elite.

I agree with the thrust of the original post:  Overthrow is coming, and if a constructive alternative is not provided, it will become FAR more violent and bloody than necessary.

Community is a threat.  The water cooler looked too much like community.  Our antecedents used to have rauccous political debates.  At what point did it become impolite to hold a political opinion in America?

At what point did it become impolite to hold a political opinion in America?  

I'm 52, and it's been impolite for my entire life.  No one, NO ONE, has wanted to talk about politics or economics.  It's too real.  People wanted to believe that someone else was responsible for that, and if I tried talking about it I was bursting their bubble.

They were afraid, and now most of them are getting it shoved right up their asses; I am not sorry about it, and I feel no pity.  (I think I woke up pissed off this morning).  Fear is the prime motivator in most people's lives.  You can see this in the incredible fear campaign that we call television.  It's like a fear pump, pumping it right into your home.  Prime time shows are all cop shows, and the perps are all middle aged white guys: fear, insecurity, mistrust.  News programs: fear, and the bad guys are foreigners, or the Tea Parties (middle aged white guys).

I agree with you about being a positive contributor to the state of affairs. I have watched us slip further and further into a state controlled society but have no clue what to do. The problem seems overwhelming ... in California, 30% of the population is working for the government in some capacity, and 40% of the state is on some sort of government welfare ... Do the math, that's 70%. With most of the people I talk to the sentiment is the same ... I'm ok because I have my unemployment check ($450/week), I have my retirement (90% of my old salary), I have a secure teacher's job, the Fed's will always need me; I work for the IRS, it's ok cause I have a contract with the State ... etc.

How can we move forward when all are tied to the trough. We need a forum to bring forward creative and workable solutions to our conundrum.

I agree that we need to figure out what is next. I was living in NYC when the meltdown started (lost my job, my visa, my green card processing and had 10 days to leave the country - so  don't talk to me about amnesty!). But like my mum says "things happen for a reason" (which I really don't believe) but I am happier being back in Canada after 8 years in the states (well sort of). I miss NY. I'm worried about some friends still there. 

But longer term - yeah I hope we can move forward

"imbued from her childhood with a brooding sense of wrong, and an inveterate hatred of a class, opportunity had developed her into a tigress. She was absolutely without pity. If she had ever had the virtue in her, it had quite gone out of her.

It was nothing to her, that an innocent man was to die for the sins of his forefathers; she saw, not him, but them. It was nothing to her, that his wife was to be made a widow and his daughter an orphan; that was insufficient punishment, because they were her natural enemies and her prey, and as such had no right to live. To appeal to her, was made hopeless by her having no sense of pity, even for herself. "

A perfect quote from such a great novel and musical, Hugo's "Les Miserables."  Absolutely perfect for the times.  Unfortunately, as the above article insinuates, the masses who cannot adjust their finances or who have already lost all of their finances, will be, in the end, "Les Miserables."

Two more great apropos quotes:

1.  Dicken's Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."

2.  From the books and movies about the doomed ship Titanic, "And the band played on..."

And one great song to lament the coming Depression/Hard Times sung by the great Leonard Cohen:

History does not repeat itself but it does rhyme.  Themes of the French Revolution keep coming to mind in recent months.  The bankers thought they had won with Tarp and the other bailouts.  They may have only set in motion the sequence of events that will lead to the demise of the present system.  We shall see, and I think we shall see fairly soon.

Nah - one thing about fascists is that they're too cowardly to step into a fight by themselves. They will never get into a fight in which the odds or numbers are against them.

Fascism comes from "fasces," which means "bundle," or "group." If you unbundle them, they're easily divided, isolated, turned against each other, and disarmed.

I, too, wasted some of my best summers working for the government.

They're... fatties. I'm not terribly concerned about angry fatsoes who like to yell and shout and scream. They need their drugs, they need their food. Many of them are just pantomiming what union leadership tells them to do. When they discover that the leadership pissed away the war chest on failed lobbying, their orcs will turn against each other. 

And I live in a densely-packed city. I'm confident in my wits and my health. I wouldn't try my luck with a gun. I'm an alright shot with a bolt-action, but I've no interest in weighing myself down for a battle that'll never come. And I'm not joining some kind of American Hezbollah wrapped-up in founding fathers rhetoric - primarily due to moral objections, but also out of simple self-preservation. 

Are you confident in your wits? In your ability to adapt to change? Can you handle it psychologically?

Thank you TD for keeping it on point. Take a few weeks off for your own.


I susupect the 1000 intra hour move on the DOW last week was nothing more than one of cartel praticising, "how fast can we exit this market" exercises.  I expect 1000 point swings to be the new norm.


In the gold market I expect $300-$400 weekly swings, as the bankers will try to manipulate the synthetics. 


The one nice thing about the the federal revserve is there is only 12 of them. And the one in Denver is a simple 2 story building, off a pedestrian mall, surrounded by sky scrappers.  An easy target for terroriest I suppose.

Embrace Entropy.  The generally feeble and misalligned human brain is still prone to all laws of nature.  Using our pea brains, we only THINK we are above the laws.

I didn't say we were above the laws of nature , entropy is only one law that we may choose to embrace - but we live in a 4 dimensional space and can again embrace complexity if we so wish.

Going all Ayn Rand and deconstructing reality as you know it will bring you nothing but tears.

Exactly... entropy is a law that our own brains made up based on observation -- It has serious potential to be so flawed.


But again, LIFE in general breaks the rules of entropy, and thus life is the anti-entropy....have fun organizing

A lot of people have, and continue to think that way. Is there any true constant in anything you have ever studied or observed, ever, other than change? Birth, life, death. Thats the way things are. We think we can avoid the death part of the cycle because we are smarter, more informed, have past examples to refer to etc. TPTB think that since they created the system that they can thus control it.

We're an ambitious bunch, and from a certain point of view, the efforts of bankers and politicans across the globe has to be commended. IMHO a better use of effort and resources would be to say "Its gonna end, nothing we can do, lets plan the next system" and correct the flaws now before we fall further behind trying to prevent the inevitable.

"Is there any true constant in anything you have ever studied or observed, ever, other than change?"

As long as time advances (you know, the timeline) things must change.  Your subconcious is programmed to deal with change.  What causes much of our anxiety is the rate of change.  When we expect events to unfold in a normal, orderly fashion and instead they unravel hopelessly before us - we feel suddenly powerless.  Unless you have envisioned the rapid, unexpected change - and planned accordingly, you will be overwhelmed.

Now, ask yourself this - what affects Entropy?  In a closed system steam/water cycle temperature is the catalyst (change in enthalpy, used to transfer energy).  What effects Entropy in a financial system?  What outside forces can cause an unforeseen increase in the rate of change in a money cycle?  By the way, that is not a rhetorical question - I don't know.  I am not an economist, nor do I play one on TV.  I am relying on all the posters more detailed knowledge here to help me understand how government/FED/Bankster meddling causes a massive dispruption in the normal orderly flow of economic activity.

Very serious stuff  But with the people in charge who are you going to tell?  Ghostbusters?  I am afraid that until the propaganda system fails completely, its failing now, that they will try in vein to minimize everything.  Once that fails the violence may be unavoidable.  I hope not.  If we go quietly like the Russians did that would be a great victory but I am afraid all the propaganda aside they are more civil than we are.

We need (government) plans to get spending money to public within 24 hours of currency reform.  If people are unable to pay for things and resume normal life we lose societal functioning within a week.  We need engineers and scientists, using local and regional means to procure basic services (food/water, media, medicine, heat, etc). We need policy types figuring out what people will do with their lives and how to contribute/keep order after currencies go away. We are not even allocating 1/10 of 1% to this (very likely IMO) trajectory now – the people with resources(financial and power) will wait until events are too far gone to allocate something to moderating the worst of energy/debt descent.
