Thank you. This is great.

The Globalist Great Reset project at work.

Six giant corporations own almost all the American media. Comcast, Disney, National Amusements, News Corp, Time Warner, Sony. For the largest, Comcast, the top four shareholders are Vanguard, Blackrock, Capital International Investors, and State Street. The top three institutional shareholders of Disney are Vanguard, Blackrock and State Street. The top three institutional owners of At&t (parent company that owns Time Warner) are... you guessed it... Vanguard, Blackrock and State Street. Even News Corp - the home of Fox News - has Vanguard, Blackrock and News Corp as the top 3rd, 4th & 5th institutional owners respectively.

I don't have the time to dig into ownership of other foreign media, but my bet is that we would see similar evidence of consolidated ownership.

Larry Fink, the CEO of Blackroch attends all the WEF conferences and is outspoken in his support for the globalist movement. His letters to the various companies he oversees interests in sends a chill up the spines of CEOs to comply or else. Like all WEF globalists, Fink supports the woke cause because the woke cause support the Great Reset project.

The 80 or so global multi-billionaires have their assets managed by Vanguard, Blackrock and State Street. They too attend the WEF conferences and support the Great Reset project. Just look at how COVID proved to them that with help from some friendly lefty administrators in positions of power they could increase their asset holdings by trillions!

The Trudeaus - related are not - are also all in. These professional looting and mooching administrators without any talents or work ethic to start and grow their own business see the potential pot of gold waiting for them if they please their multi-billionaire benefactors.

This is WW-III. We have been fighting it since Hillary approved the use of the fake dossier.

The term "woke" should be repurposed to apply to people in general that need to wake up to what is happening and why they need to fight this enemy immediately.

Welcome to my past, folks. (I was born and raised in Communist Romania)

This whole situation reminds me of the process of civilizational decline that Tonybee described.

He said that Civilizations rise when creative minorities (meaning a small, highly competent and creative group of individuals -- not minorities in the racial/sexual/etc. sense) are able to respond to difficult challenges that arise such as terraforming tough terrains to get resources, etc. Creative minorities get power naturally from people because their talents and way of conduct inspires people to be just like them and they naturally gain following.

However overtime, civilizations disintegrate when their leaders stopped responding creatively and that which was creative minority has degraded into what he calls "dominant minority". These dominant minorities though don't want to lose power even though they know that they aren't creative minorities so they form what he called a "universal state". It seems that we are in the process of formation of the universal state.

Quoting here:

Tonybee argues that the ultimate sign a civilization has broken down is when the dominant minority forms a "universal state", which stifles political creativity within the existing social order. The classic example of this is the Roman Empire, though many other imperial regimes are cited as examples. Toynbee writes:

"First the Dominant Minority attempts to hold by force—against all right and reason—a position of inherited privilege which it has ceased to merit; and then the Proletariat [common people] repays injustice with resentment, fear with hate, and violence with violence. Yet the whole movement ends in positive acts of creation. The Dominant Minority creates a universal state, the Internal Proletariat [common people within a country] a universal church, and the External Proletariat a bevy of barbarian war-bands [e.g. Mexican cartels and gangs]."

the stuff in [] is my further explanation

Common people respond to this by forming what is called a "universal church", something akin to what Islam was. This unites people, provides guidance .


Toynbee developed his concept of an "internal proletariat" and an "external proletariat" to describe quite different opposition groups within and outside the frontiers of a civilization. These groups, however, find themselves bound to the fate of the civilization. During its decline and disintegration, they are increasingly disenfranchised or alienated, and thus lose their immediate sense of loyalty or of obligation. Nonetheless an "internal proletariat," untrusting of the dominant minority, may form a "universal church" which survives the civilization's demise, co-opting the useful structures such as marriage laws of the earlier time while creating a new philosophical or religious pattern for the next stage of history.

Before the process of disintegration, the dominant minority had held the internal proletariat in subjugation within the confines of the civilization, causing these oppressed to grow bitter. The external proletariat, living outside the civilization in poverty and chaos, grows envious. Then, in the social stress resulting from the failure of the civilization, the bitterness and envy increase markedly.

Toynbee argues that as civilizations decay, there is a "schism" within the society. In this environment of discord, people resort to archaism (idealization of the past), futurism (idealization of the future), detachment (removal of oneself from the realities of a decaying world), and transcendence (meeting the challenges of the decaying civilization with new insight, e.g., by following a new religion). From among members of an "internal proletariat" who transcend the social decay a "church" may arise. Such an association would contain new and stronger spiritual insights, around which a subsequent civilization may begin to form. Toynbee here uses the word "church" in a general sense, e.g., to refer to a collective spiritual bond found in common worship, or the unity found in an agreed social order.

Anyway, it seems that our elites are trying to effectively form a universal state with all the coordination and ever more centralization. We will see what happens.

This would all be so much more entertaining if these armies of feckless ministers didn’t have their greasy little hands on the levers of power.

Whenever I hear about saving democracy I want to count the spoons. These people- these ruling class apparatchiks- don’t think the people below have the ability- or the right - to decide for themselves what’s true or false.

I can't decide if this is straight up 1984 or just straight up Brazil.

You know, I wouldn't mind so much being ruled by an overclass of preening venal buffoons w delusions of grandeur because that's who's gonna rule you one way or another no matter where u live on earth, but then i remember that our corporate global ruling class hates their own countries and its citizens, hates its own history and traditions, and that various WEF puppets have said things like "There is no native Swedish culture" or "There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada" and then I remember that these people are liars and traitors and deserve nothing but mockery and opprobrium.

Very frightening. I’m getting a bit long in the tooth to fight for my GOD GIVEN RIGHTS in a kinetic fashion but it looks increasingly likely. Sad.

NS Lyons, probably alone reads this stuff and while you say this is just a fill piece between real essays, I say keep it up, you should do a foggy-bottom piece every month. Really a great exercise.

They want to achieve a “Common Vision”, holy cow they said that right out loud, right there in black and white! That shows great distain for any opposition, they feel immune.

This a pretty old problem, it keeps getting worse even though Orwell tried to warn against it.


“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons...who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

― Edward Bernays, Propaganda

I appreciate this piece, but the double talk can be exposed more parsimoniously with just one name: Assange.

Sarcasm is a good antidote. Laughing at them helps. They're not nearly enough, but such small steps of self defense and sanity preservation are vital steps. Perhaps, in the long run, it's harder for a fool to deny reality when smart people mock him for it. BTW: stay away from irony; they don't get it.
