Mark Blyth: The Euro – an assessment in the midst of a European war | Q&A with Yanis Varoufakis
This discussion is so far off-beam as to be embarrassing. Less of a curate’s egg than a rotten egg. Why?
WHEN THE CRISIS HIT THE FAN,OR NOW THAT THE GUANO IS HITTING THE VENTAXIA AGAIN.
Yannis’s talk here Yanis Varoufakis On Ancient Greece And The Nature of Money is a good starting point, Carbon credits was the main absence from the discussion
Carbon Credits are the only part of the Climate Change Narratives that the monetary system players are interested in.
See Spash , The Brave New World of Carbon trading as your starter for ten,
my own work on the Carbon Based currency end game ( Quasi Gold Standard ) is what the Central Banks are really working towards. 16:1.
If one observes the long game the dominant Narrative of the past 30 years is Climate Change and CO2 emission being the only thing anyone needs to focus upon. The Carbon footprint narrative is by a long chalk well ahead of the curve even with the relatively short but seemingly endless Pandemic and Vaccine Narratives of the Past two years. Naming names, Larry Fink of Blackstone and Blackstones Going Direct is considerably more powerful a control lever on what happens next than the efforts of Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci to enrich Big Pharma and themselves, Gates also has a bigger card in the game and that is Digital ID and its relationship to both Near earth Satellite networks and the 5G networks, which coincidentally really were rolling out at the Same Time as the Wuhan Event, also in coincidentally Wuhan.
Yanis’s Talk to the student body of Stanford is also very important to the discussion and was completely left out.

Mark Blythe had a lot of good things to say about Brexit and the Possible rise of trump predicated upon the jury coming back in on Neo Liberalism and finding its race to the bottom guilty as charged. Of Course that Race to the Bottom was cheerled by Clintons Wingman Al Gore who told Americans what a fine idea NAFTA would be and how it would be such a fine and dandy win win win.

DEMOCRACY UNFOLDED, EMERGENT REALITY OF BREXIT. ( A POEM, BY ROGER G LEWIS ) #GRUBSTREETJOURNAL #BREXIT #POEM
emergent reality of Brexit.
Who´s That, Unfold yourself?
I am Democracy.
Who are you, what business have you here
with your government?
You claim my mandate &
this is my torment.
Is there an election ? ‘It is then we
make you our promises, Come back then
and don’t trouble me´.
Democracy tells her tale ofAncient grudges
as old as Nixon’s shock and Older still.
One Government sought in referendum to
claim the peoples will, now Article 50 awaits more work.
Politicians some, wish democratic yokes to shirk.
Two Governments equal in wealth
reveal their darker purposes.

The Vaccines and Vaccine Injury is very much closely related to the Adjuvants and not necessarily the Pathogen dose delivered in the solution of the Adjuvant. It is the Adjuvant rather than the disease which is of interest to the 5G / ID aspects of what the past two years have really been all about.
The Repo Spike in Newyork on September the 19th was the starting pistol, of course, the dress rehearsal was Event 201, The Objective was almost certainly to gain widespread acceptance of Digital IDs on SmartPhone devices and possibly by stealth through Nanotechnology, within the Adjuvant solutions in the mRNA vaccines( Experimental Gene Therapies?).
So what about Climate Change, CO2, and all that, ?
No it’s not the Graphine found in some adjuvant samples but the Rationing of Carbon through a Carbon-based currency which is why the Climate Change Agenda particularly the CO2 control knob is so important. The ratio of Good Energy ( renewables) for which Carbon Credits will be created and Bad Energy of “Fossil Fuels which represent Carbon debits, is 16:1. There are various combinations which could see the ratio vary but essentially as with The Gold Standard a Carbon Credit Renewables Standard has the same ratio as the Historical Bi-Metallic ratio known to numasticist’s the world over. A deflationary centralised banking regime will be able to impose Austerity to an authoritarian extent extending to a population control mechanism. This is a far more likely delivery mechanism for Rapid population reduction policies than any Vaccination regime, Famine equally, is a far more effective and efficient means of population reduction than certainly War or any other form of genocide, also for the Authoritarian regime deploying it, it is also complete with a shield of plausible deniability.

The Value of property and its re-financing in a rebased unit of value will be adjusted to support the level of Debt in the economy, as 85% of all debt is based on residential values the overall prediction of the price collapse is I think wrong. I would like to discuss with you what I think is happening in terms of the UBERisation of the Housing Market.
I am pretty sure I have figured out what’s happening in the broadest sense. With respect to censorship, medical interventions mandated by the corporate state, etc, Social points systems, and all of that the Die is definitely not cast. Everything is still to play for but will not be resolved in newspapers, or social media.
Those in privileged positions ( In the Golden Billion) have far more influence than you seem to believe based on what you have written here. Engaging with the system as it was advertised according to branding circa 1990 pre-collapse of the Soviet union will suffice to make the necessary small adjustments to head off the crazies like Gates at the pass.
From here on forward the place to argue the case is directly at the top table. Expecting talking heads to admit their mistakes in public is naive. The problems that exist in the world today are orders of magnitude less difficult than those faced in the first half of the 20th century. That’s my own experience the experience of others, perhaps including you will differ.

“Participation, and Democratic Theory” by Carole Pateman. Dr Pateman
says that, Schumpeter and his followers: … set the current
Anglo-American political system as our democratic ideal (with) a
‘democratic theory’ that in many respects bears a strange resemblance to
the anti-democratic arguments of the last (i.e. 19th) century. No

of the minority elite that is crucial and the non-participation of

What follows is the proof that The ECB rules Europe with all the power of financialised capitalist Alchemy, the ECB and The Commission further choose to sacrifice national Governments to Market discipline and certain ruin at the hands of Private Bankers with the power to create money secured against the commonwealth and commons of its own Citizens. With National Governments forced to borrow in open markets without any legal recourse to the ECB as a lender of last resort.

What I have found in the ten-plus years I have been studying this seriously is that the questions have become sharper I started really with Tomlinson and the Michael Journal
There are some great documentary films as well I have embedded many of them on this web page.

Neil Wilson is for me the best Blogger on MMT his analysis and critical thought is peerless in the field.
Cullen Roache’s website is an excellent critique of MMT, a critique is a subtle analysis of questions arising from a body of knowledge, information, or a book. It is not a counterproof or proof against the claims made necessarily but always helps in sharpening questions and defining boundary conditions
This is a massive subject John no one school of thought has all of the answers for all of the use cases, defining the Unit of account in itself is what DelMar is getting at in chapter 2 of the linked book.
The last word for Alexander Delmar.
VALUE IS A NUMERICAL RELATION.
Legał use of the words “ unit of value ”—Their importance—They are not defined in the law—Unit a synonym for measure—Evolution of the word “ value ”—Its classical meaning related to the power of numbers— During the Dark Ages it became associated with labour—In the Renaissance it acquired the meaning of an attribute of matter— Fallacy of this last view—The correct naturę of value rediscovered by Montesquieu and Bastiat—Yalue shown to be a numerical ratio between all exchanged things—Yalue measurable by the whole numbers of money —The existing mint laws practically make the whole numbers of money (or the unit or measure of value) to consist of an indefinite sum, whose only limits fluctuate between illimitable demand and uncertain supply.
The laws of certain States ordain that either one of several different coins weighing so many grains, or of pieces of paper of such a size, each called a pound, a dollar or franc, shall be “ the unit of value Important as they are, neither of these words, “ unit,” or “ value,” is defined in the law. Reasoning from its use in analogous cases, “ unit ” is a synonym for measure; but the meaning of “ value ” is not to be determined by analogy, for there is no analogous use of it in the statutes.
When it is remembered that the ablest logicians of all countries, from Aristotle to Mili, have vainly endeavoured to give it form, it will begin to be seen how complex and obscure the naturę of value must be, and therefore in what great uncertainty the statutes have involved all commercial relations, by using, without defining, this intricate term.”

dimensions of a money system is examined. To the extent that the nature of
money is even discussed within the field of economics, we can distill three general
theories of the origin and constitution of money: the commodity theory, the
chartalist theory, and the credit theory of money. The contention here is that neither
of these theories are capable of providing a coherent and conclusive account of
the nature of money, while at the same time each of them captures a dimension of
the functioning of money.”

And David Greber described it as the Underside of the Western Tradition in a 2005 Article in the Commoner Periodical.
the underside of the Western tradition
“Western philosophy, after all, really begins with the quarrel between Heraclitus and Parmenides; a quarrel that Parmenides won. As a result, from almost the very start, the Western tradition marked itself by imagining objects that exist, as it were, outside
of time and transformation. So much so that the obvious reality of change has always been something of a problem.”
WHY are we here?
https://longhairedmusings.wordpress.com/2017/01/08/why-are-we-here-an-essay-provoked-by-golem-xivs-david-malones-latest-documentary-series/How many choices at the end of the day are actually either or, Science or God, Evolution or Creation/Intelligent design?
Perhaps there is a useful distinction to be made between Science and Technology and between God and mental well- being. If it works don´t fix it and if it feels good or does some apparent good then keep doing it. In this area Rupert Sheldrakes´ notions of habits in nature along with C S Pierces´ Agapism, take me down a path I am always happy to re-visit with either doubt or scepticism depending whether I am blowing in a Materialistic or Idealistic breeze that particular day. Perhaps the best thing to do with mind if we accept such a thing exists is to keep it (mind)open to the possibility for changing once we think we have made it up, or to accept the possibility of contradictions and being in two or multiple minds at once. What are our choices and how do we prioritise or rank them. All of this with the knowledge that we will never have all of the information we would like to overcome our doubt or scepticism. ( Back to Ceteris Paribus? )
There are then notions of received, accepted and popular wisdom, the things we take for granted, the ´Settled Science
´´or ´´Consensus ´´Viewpoint. Beware the thought Police neither the God Squad or the Science Mob have a monopoly on policing thought crime against their Dogmas and they all have plenty of Dogma to go around. Michel Foucault got at this notion of the In Group bias of what Polyani called the Science republic. It applies equally well to any formalised structure of allowed realities I find; secular, scientific, political or religious.
”I would define the episteme retrospectively as the strategic apparatus which permits of separating out from among all the statements which are possible those that will be acceptable within, I won’t say a scientific theory, but a field of scientificity, and which it is possible to say are true or false. The episteme is the ‘apparatus’ which makes possible the separation, not of the true from the false, but of what may from what may not be characterised as scientific.” Michel Foucault.
´´Let those that deny the educational significance of the Bible, that declare it has outlived its usefulness, invent such a book, such stories, such explanations of the phenomena of nature, either from general history or from imagination, which should have such a recap- ion as the Bible ones have, and then we will agree that the Bible is superannuated .
Pedagogy serves as a verification of many, many vital phenomena, of social and abstract questions.Materialism will have the right to proclaim itself as victorious only when the bible of materialism shall have been written, and childhood shall have been educated according to this bible. Owen’s experiment cannot be regarded as a proof of such a possibility, any more than the growth of a lemon tree in a Moscow greenhouse is proof that it could grow without the open sky and the sun.I repeat it, my conviction, drawn perhaps from a one- sided experiment, is that the development of a child and a man is as unthinkable without the Bible as it would have been in Greek society without
Homer. The Bible is the only book for the elementary education of the young. The Bible, both in its form and in its con- tent, ought to serve as the model for all children’s manuals and reading books. A simple popular translation of the Bible would be the most popular of all books. The appearance of such a translation in our day would make an epoch in the history of the Russian people ´´ (YASNAYA POLYANA SCHOOL 253, Tolstoy, https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Yasnaya_Polyana_School)

Breaking Out of the Invisible Prison
THEORY • February 25, 2015 • John McMurtry
The Ten-Point Global Paradigm Revolution
As we enter 2015, the global corporate system deepens and spreads in its eco-genocidal effects. But the dots are not joined in their common cause across domains. Money-value coordinates like gross domestic product (GDP), commodity productivity and stock market indexes are still adopted as the measures of “economic performance” rather than life capital development which is systemically depredated.
1. The One-Way Eco-Genocidal Trends
Pollution cycles and volumes increase to endanger life systems at all levels, but no global system reduction has been made since the Ozone protocol over 25 years ago.
2. The Moral DNA of the Cancer Stage of Capitalism
Bertrand Russell’s warning here is apposite. “Mathematics may be defined as the subject where we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we say is true.”
3. Contemporary Economics is a Pseudo-Science
We find here, in fact, the underlying form of a fanatic religion. Supra-human laws dictate commands across peoples, and no deadly consequences diminish certitude in its production of the optimal state for all by the perfect design of the system. With the supreme conceit of a just-so story of dyadic market exchange producing the best of possible worlds multiplied to infinity with no possibility of being wrong, we find the inner logic of the global disorder. It rules as a totalitarian creed blind to all but its own growth free of any life value, standard or regulator.
4. Knowledge Wins in the End, but Not Until It is Known
Behind every step of degeneration lie failures of social knowledge:
(1) failure to diagnose the regulating value mechanism at work;
(2) failure to connect across the domains of life despoliation as predictable from the system’s blind money-demand multiplications;
(3) failure to define or demand any public policies against its despoiling and devouring life support systems with the public increasingly financing the out-of-control feeding cycles;
(4) failure to recognise any life-value principle or ground of the real economy itself.
5. Re-Grounding in Real Capital and Goods, True Supply and Demand
Demand is not need or necessity as in any real economy. It is money demand minted by private banks without the legal tender to back over 97 per cent of it: which is ever more unequally held by those serving no productive function, and which nowhere today stands for any life need whatever.
6. Knowing Good from Bad as the Baseline of Life-Coherent Economics
7. Life Capital Base and Growth as the Real Economy Across Cultures
8. Collective Life Capital the Missing Link across Divisions
9. The Life-and-Death War of the World
10. The Ultimate Choice Space of Humanity

How CIA Spies Access India’s Biometric Aadhaar Database
by Shelley Kasli
The Indian Supreme Court has just recognized the constitutional inviolability of the right to privacy. It will have to decide soon on the legality of the generalization of biometric identification. On the same day, Wikileaks published documents on the CIA’s tools. Using the data already available, the United States has illegally collected biometric informations from more than one billion Indians. What has long been told by fictional works has become a reality: we will all be immediately identifiable by the CIA.
