Are you ready for the revolution?

The elites have overplayed their hand, and too many peasants are waking up to the big ruse. A confluence of factors is leading to an inevitable collapse of the current societal paradigm.

By Joel Smalley

I have learnt more in the last two to three years than I have in my lifetime up until the advent of COVID-19, both informally through my analysis of data, observations of people in society and most importantly through collaboration with some of the most incredible minds in the world, and formally through the curricula of science, history, and politics that I have obliged myself to study to establish my knowledge scaffolding.

If I could (wrongly) reduce it to a single tenet, it would be that, during the Common Era (for the most part since it is better chronicled), society has been formed around the premise that territory and resources are scarce and can only be acquired and protected through force. Subsequently, to protect oneself and for the establishment of peace, society should be organised in a hierarchical fashion with power/control being centralised at the top whereby permission to live is filtered down to the rest.

This has always been achieved under the notion that this kind of organisation facilitates the best protection against foreign threats. As a result, whether territories be empires, fiefdoms or sovereign states, emperors, kings and now heads of state (and their appointed “elites”) rely on the “common good” of offering protection against a host of potential threats (war, famine, ill-health) in order to maintain their position of control.

For thousands of years, the common person – the plebs, serfs and modern-day taxpayers – has overlooked the fact that the organisational structure they adhere to is typically a greater threat to their liberty, health, and fulfilment than the threats it ostensibly purports to defend them from.

However, every few hundred years, for whatever reason, the commoners are compelled to rise up and overthrow the “elites” that govern them. These reasons could be due to the failure of the hierarchical structure to actually protect them from the threats they claimed to, or quite often because the elites overplay their hand.

I believe that such a time is upon us once again.

It is different from past revolutions because both the elites and the commoners are more sophisticated. It is easy to stir up civil unrest when there is literally blood on the streets or no food on the table. As we have witnessed with COVID-19 and other eugenics programs, the elites can kill millions without the majority of society even realising.

Similarly, it is easier to overthrow a regime if your arsenal can be equally, if not better equipped, than the regime. Here I am talking technology as opposed to military might.

But, as we edge closer to the implosion of the modern monetary system due to unsustainable levels of national debt ($70 trillion worldwide!) and hyperinflation, the collapse of allopathic healthcare infrastructures, and the realisation that the elites’ self-interest is much greater than the “common good” trickles ever further down the chain of ignorance, there will come an inflection point in society that will trigger another revolution, reminiscent of the past centuries.

As a potential catalyst for this event, I am becoming more and more convinced that decentralised technologies will play a major part. Much more than sophisticated means for members of society to conduct their affairs with each other more efficiently and securely, they represent the potential replacement of the current paradigm of organisational structure.

It has already started with the erosion of dependence on fiat money as a means of storing wealth and a method of value exchange – the crypto market has grown from just $200 billion at the end of 2019, before the advent of COVID-19, the war in Ukraine and the ramping up of the climate change lie, to almost $1 trillion now, having almost hit $3 trillion along the way.

This fiat erosion will continue and no matter how hard they try with regulation “to protect” the ordinary consumer, the elites will be powerless to stop society from using alternative “money” to conduct their affairs.

With this, the State will lose its means of revenue production – taxation. Without taxation, the State will rapidly become powerless, as it will no longer be able to afford to pay the ignorant servants to protect its regime.

Regimes themselves will similarly come under direct attack of disintermediation. Governance will be done by true democratic consensus. People will be able to collaborate in formal organisation without the need for conventional legal entity constructs. Law and order will be transparent and impartial.

All the opportunities for the elites to exploit the organisational structure and the ignorant horde will gradually erode, to be replaced by a new paradigm where self-sovereignty will rightly start and end with the individual person, not the collective state.

Men will be able to co-exist with other men in the interests of self-preservation as opposed to fealty to the master of the collective. People will realise that without them, the state ceases to exist and can no longer exercise its dictatorial control under the guise of representing the common interest.

With this, national boundaries (most of which have only been established in the last couple of hundred years) should erode and all the earth’s citizens should be free to produce and share its abundant resources without the unnecessary intervention of a small group of powerful psychopathic narcissists, whose power only exists as long as the horde permits it.
