Are You Ready For Climate Lockdowns?

CLIMATE LOCKDOWNS ARRIVING

The quest by the UK government (not only the UK mind) to meet their stupid “carbon zero” initiatives is simply a facade to the implementation of a digital control grid, courtesy of globo-psycho unelected central planners.

Many of us have been saying this for years now, and this has, of course, simply elicited the typical programmed cries from the sheeple of “conspiracy theorists.” And so it goes.

Anyway, you’ll recall that last time we covered the “15 minute cities” being championed by the aforementioned central planners.

Now, they’re pushing the same narrative in order to — you guessed it — save the planet.

Oxfordshire Council to Trial a Climate Lockdown Starting 2024

Residents will be confined to their local neighbourhood and have to ask permission to leave it all to ‘save the planet’.

Oxfordshire County Council yesterday approved plans to lock residents into one of six zones to ‘save the planet’ from global warming. The latest stage in the ’15 minute city’ agenda is to place electronic gates on key roads in and out of the city, confining residents to their own neighbourhoods.

Under the new scheme if residents want to leave their zone they will need permission from the Council who gets to decide who is worthy of freedom and who isn’t. Under the new scheme residents will be allowed to leave their zone a maximum of 100 days per year, but in order to even gain this every resident will have to register their car details with the council who will then track their movements via smart cameras round the city.

Old Maggie, think of her what you will, understood the ultimate trajectory of socialism: tyranny.

When the state does everything for you, it will soon take everything from you – you will then have no basis for personal freedom, political freedom, or economic freedom

Here’s where I think things are both exciting and interesting. Exciting because people are still in a state of denial about reality. That provides a window of opportunity.

Interesting because… well, this is all intellectually stimulating, and if we can position ourselves well ahead of what seems as inevitable to me as rain in monsoon season, then all the better.

Take a look. It’s a property for sale in Oxford. The very place they are TELLING YOU they are going to turn into a ring fenced communist ghetto.

Sure, it won’t look like a ghetto, not in the beginning. But with these USSR-style policies this will change just as fast as that crazy bipolar girlfriend that went from adoring you to stalking you and slitting your cat’s throat.

No, really. Just consider a place like Detroit or Philadelphia. Once wonderful, wealthy, and safe.

Today, not so much.

overpriced UK house

There’s nothing flash about this place. It’s large by UK standards, which means it’s cramped and isn’t a real house, being joined to its neighbour.

It’ll still cost you US$1,464,800, which buys you 0.3 acres, 3 beds, and a total living area of 1,651 square feet or 156 sq metres, which is 6 square metres larger than my tool shed.

So let’s see what we can get for this sort of money in a place that has thus far proven to be decidedly NOT going with the Western “carbon zero” claptrap.

Antalya, Turkiye.

At EUR1,1m (USD to EUR is close enough to parity to use interchangeably right now) you’ll have roughly $350k leftover, and you’ll be able to squeeze all your relies into the 5,382 sq feet property, and for those who don’t fit, they can sleep in the gym, or in a hammock or something.

“Oh, but Chris, it’s Turkiye, and the place is dangerous and run by a madman.” To which I’d say two things.

  1. Pah. Firstly, the world is run by psychopaths. Take a look around and tell it it ain’t so. Secondly, stop thinking there’s a saviour. No, we’re forced to simply understand what the psychos’ motives are and how those are likely to affect their economies and, of course, our investments and personal freedoms. That and..
  2. Dangerous? Many Westerners, even those who’ve travelled some, are inundated with propaganda, whether it be Hollywood or MSM. And more often than not it’s not only wrong but materially wrong.

For instance, I still get people telling me that Dubai is unsafe. They’ll lock you up for drinking a beer is something I heard recently. This sort of claptrap often comes from folks living in Western cities with zero experience.

It’s amazing the disconnect between fact and fiction.

In any event, we’re dealing with Oxford, UK and Antalya, Turkiye.

Let’s take a look at the relative crime rates… and keep in mind Oxford is only just over 161,000 people while Antalya hosts 945,000 people (larger cities typically have higher crime rates).

As you can see, Antalya is far safer.

Further to this point. On a recent weekend, my family were subjected to a discussion with some sheeple (who shall remain unnamed to protect their ignorance and innocence), and I was chastised for travelling to Antalya, Turkiye because… scary dangerous. 

“Oh, I would never travel there.” The sheeple in question reside in a city depicted below.

I rest my case.

The cool thing is this. You don’t have to be an ignorant person parroting what you’re being told to believe, think, and say.

You can turn off the propaganda box, educate yourself, and make decisions that actually make sense, not ones provided to you on a platter by those with an agenda.

My agenda is quite simple. I wish to make money for myself and my clients, and I have no desire to live life as a slave.

Consequently, I’ll seek out the best for myself. And yes, no place is perfect, and I’m not necessarily saying go buy a house in Antalya and sell one if you live in Oxford (actually, no… I am saying that if that’s you).

But what I am saying is it’s perfectly ok to trust but verify. If you’re told that X is better than Y, then go check it out to see if that’s indeed the case.

Also, when you’re being fed horse shit, either by those with an agenda or by stupid people parroting those with an agenda (simply because they’ve not learnt how to think independently), then it’s entirely and perfectly responsible of you to stop putting yourself in the company of idiots.

Where you’ve received information from a source that’s proven itself unreliable, then, for goodness sake, treat any further information from that source with due scepticism.

Arbitrage is defined in the dictionary as: The simultaneous purchase and sale of equivalent assets or of the same asset in multiple markets in order to exploit a temporary discrepancy in prices.

The arbitrage between what value is still perceived to be in many Western “developed” markets and some developing or even developed countries (Dubai, for example) is still wide.

If I’m right, by the end of the decade the entire world will be reshaped in ways we can’t imagine, and much of this arbitrage will have been closed with things skewed wildly the other way around.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.
