The Corruption of Evidence Based Medicine — Killing for Profit

June 19th 2018
By:Dr. Jason Fung

Originally published on www.medium.com

The idea of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) is great. The reality, though, not so much. Human perception is often flawed, so the premise of EBM is to formally study medical treatments and there have certainly been some successes

Consider the procedure of angioplasty. Doctors insert a catheter into the blood vessels of the heart and use a balloon like device to open up the artery and restore blood flow. In acute heart attacks studies confirm that this is an effective procedure. In chronic heart disease the COURAGE study and more recently the ORBITA study showed that angioplasty is largely useless. EBM helped distinguish the best use of an invasive procedure.

So, why do prominent physicians call EBM mostly useless? The 2 most prestigious journals of medicine in the world are The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine. Richard Horton, editor in chief of The Lancet said this in 2015

    The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue

Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor in chief of NEJM wrote in 2009 that,

    It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor

This has huge implications. Evidence based medicine is completely worthless if the evidence base is false or corrupted. It’s like building a wooden house knowing the wood is termite infested. What caused this sorry state of affairs? Well, Dr. Relman another former editor in chief of the NEJM said this in 2002

    The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful

The people in charge of the system — the editors of the most important medical journals in the world, gradually learn over a few decades that their life’s work is being slowly and steadily corrupted. Physicians and universities have allowed themselves to be bribed.

The examples in medicine are everywhere. Research is almost always paid for by pharmaceutical companies. But studies done by industry are well known to have positive results far more frequently. Trials run by industry are 70% more likely than government funded trials to show a positive result. Think about that for a second. If EBM says that 2+2 = 5 is correct 70% of the time, would you trust this sort of ‘science’?

Selective Publication — Negative trials (those that show no benefit for the drugs) are likely to be suppressed. For example, in the case of antidepressants, 36/37 studies that were favourable to drugs were published. But of the studies not favorable to drugs, a paltry 3/36 were published. Selective publication of positive (for the drug company) results means that a review of the literature would suggest that 94% of studies favor drugs where in truth, only 51% were actually positive. Suppose you know that your stockbroker publishes all his winning trades, but suppresses all his losing trades. Would you trust him with your money? But yet, we trust EBM with our lives, even though the same thing is happening.

Let’s look at the following graph of the number of trials completed versus those that were published. In 2008, the company Sanofi completed 92 studies but only a piddly 14 were published. Who gets to decide which gets published and which does not? Right. Sanofi. Which ones do you think will be published? The ones that favor its drugs, or the ones that prove their drugs do not work? Right. Keep in mind that this is the only rational course of action for Sanofi, or any other company to pursue. It’s idiotic to publish data that harms yourself. It’s financial suicide. So this sort of rational behavior will happen now, and it will not stop in the future. But knowing this, why do we still believe the evidence based medicine, when the evidence base is completely biased? An outside observer, only looking at all published data, will conclude that the drugs are far, far more effective than they are in reality. Yet, if you point this out in academic circles, people label you a quack, who does not ‘believe the evidence’.

Rigging of Outcomes — Or consider the example of registration of primary outcomes. Prior to year 2000, companies doing trials did not need to declare what end points they measured. So they measure many different endpoints and simply figured out which one looked best and then declared the trial a success. Kind of like tossing a coin, looking at which one come up more, and saying that they were backing the winning side. If you measured enough outcomes, something was bound to come up positive.

In 2000, the government moved to stop these shenanigans. They required companies to register what they were measuring ahead of time. Prior to 2000, 57% of trials showed a positive result. After 2000, a paltry 8% showed good results. More evidence of the evidence base being completely corrupted by commercial interest, and the academic physicians who were getting rich on it tacitly allowing corruption because they know that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you

‘Advertorials’ — Or this example of a review paper in the NEJM that fracture rates caused by the lucrative bisphosphonate drugs were “very rare”. Not only did the drug companies pay lots of consulting fees to the doctors, three of the authors of this review were full time employees! To allow an advertorial to be published as the best scientific fact is scandalous. Doctors, trusting the NEJM to publish quality, unbiased advice have no idea that this review article is pure advertising. Yet, we still consider the NEJM to be the very pinnacle of evidence based medicine. Instead, as all the editors of the journals sadly recognize, it has become lucre-based publishing. Mo money = better results.

Money from Reprints — The reasons for this problem is obvious to all — it’s insanely profitable for journals to take money from Big Pharma. Journals want to be read. So they all try to get a high Impact Factor (IF). To do this, you need to get cited by other authors. And nothing boosts ratings like a blockbuster produced by Big Pharma. They have the contacts and the sales force to make any study a landmark. A less obvious benefit is the fees that are generated by Big Pharma purchasing articles for reprint. If a company publishes an article in the NEJM, they may order several hundred thousand copies of the article to be distributed to unsuspecting doctors everywhere. These fees are not trivial. The NEJM publisher Massachusetts Medical Society gets 23% of its income from reprints. The Lancet — 41%. The American Medical Association — a gut busting 53%. No wonder these journals are ready to sell their readers (ordinary physicians) down the river. It pays. Who needs journalistic ethics when there’s a Mercedes in the driveway? Mo money, baby. Mo money.

Bribery of Journal Editors — A recent study by Liu et al in the BMJ shed more light on the problem of crooked journals. Crooked journal editors. Editors play a crucial role in determining the scientific dialogue by deciding which manuscripts are published. They determine who the peer reviewers are. Using the Open Payments database, they looked at how much money the editors of the most influential journals in the world were taking from industry sources. This includes ‘research’ payments, which are largely unregulated. As mention previously, much ‘research’ consists of going to meetings in exotic locale. It funny how many conferences are held in beautiful European cities like Barcelona, and how few are done in brutally cold Quebec City.

Of all journal editors that could be assessed, 50.6% were on the take. The average payment in 2014 was $27,564. Each. This does not include an average $37, 330 given for ‘research’ payments. Other particularly corrupt journals include:

This is slightly horrifying. Each editor of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology received, on average $475 072 personally and another $119 407 for ‘research’. With 35 editors, that’s about $15 million in bribes to doctors. No wonder the JACC loves drugs and devices. It pays the private school bills. Mo money = we’ll publish your crooked studies for you. Mo money, baby, mo money.

Publication Bias — The evidence base that EBM depends upon is completely biased. Some people think I’m really anti-Pharma, but this is not really true. Big Pharma companies have a duty to their shareholders to make money. They have no duty to patients. On the other hand, doctors have a duty to patients. Universities have a duty to remain unbiased.

It is the failure of doctors and universities to keep their greedy paws out of the corrupting influence of Big Pharma money that is the problem. If Big Pharma is allowed to spend lots of $$$ paying off doctors and universities and professors, then it should do so to maximize profits. That is their mission statement. Doctors love to blame Big Pharma companies because it takes peoples gaze off the real problem — lots of doctors taking $$$ from anybody who will pay. The pharma industry is not the problem. Bribery of university doctors is the problem — one that is easily fixed if the political will exists.

Consider this study. Looking at studies in the field of neurodegenerative disease, researchers looked at all the studies that were started but never finished or never published. Approximately 28% of studies never made it to the finish line. That’s a problem. If all the studies that don’t look promising for drug candidates are not published, then it appears that the drugs are way way more effective than they really are. But the published ‘evidence base’ would falsely support the drug. Indeed, Pharma sponsored trials were 5 times more likely to be unpublished.

Imagine you have a coin flipping contest. Suppose a player call ‘Big Pharma” chooses heads, and also pays the coin flipper. Every time the coin flipper pulls up tails, the results don’t count. Every time it comes up heads, it counts. This happens 28% of the time. Now, instead of a 50/50 split of heads and tails, it’s more like a 66/34 split of heads/tails. So the ‘evidence based medicine’ lover claims that heads is far more likely to come up than tails, and castigates people who don’t believe the results as ‘anti-science’.

Evidence based medicine depends entirely upon having a reliable base of evidence (studies). If the evidence base is tampered with, and paid for, then EBM as a science is completely useless. Indeed, the very editors whose entire careers have been EBM have now discovered it to be worthless. Does the CEO of Phillip Morris (maker of Marlboro cigarettes) smoke? That tells you all you need to know about the health risks. Do the editors of the NEJM and the Lancet believe EBM anymore? Not at all. So neither should we. We can’t believe evidence based medicine until the evidence has been cleaned up from the corrupting influence of commercial interests.

Financial conflicts of interest (COI), also known as gifts to doctors, is a well accepted practice. A national survey in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2007 shows that 94% of physicians had ties to the pharmaceutical industry. This gravy train only rides in one direction. From Big Pharma to the wallets of doctors. Sure Big Pharma can simply pay doctors directly, and it does plenty of that. It’s no surprise that medical students with more exposure to pharmaceutical reps develop a more positive attitude towards them. Many medical schools have limited exposure of medical students in response, but declined to get off the gravy train themselves. There is a simple relationship between how prominent a physician is (more articles published — almost always academic doctors and professors) and how much money they take from Big Pharma. Mo prominent = mo money. Further, there is a ‘clear and strong link’ between taking industry money and minimizing the risk of side effects of medications. What, you thought people teach at prestigious institutions like universities for the good of mankind? Maybe that’s why they went there, but that’s not why they stay. They came for the science. They stayed for the money.

So here’s a damning list of all the problems of EBM

    Selective Publication
    Rigged outcomes
    Advertorials
    Reprint Revenues
    Bribery of Journal Editors
    Publication Bias
    Financial Conflicts of Interests

When the evidence base of medicine is bought and paid for, people die. That is how doctors have created this opioid crisis that kills thousands of people. Pharmaceutical companies want to pay off doctors, just as drug lord want to pay off judges and police officers. Doctors, being human, should put safeguards against this temptation. Unfortunately, doctors and universities have been willing participants in this game of killing for profit. We need to end it now. End the corruption of the universities. Stop the bribery of doctors.

Dr. Aseem Malhotra will be speaking about this very issue to the European Parliament this Thursday.

Far Out Newz / New Academic Paper Says Consciousness is Everywhere
« on: June 21, 2018, 07:30:14 AM »

Ready to have your mind blown?

A new paper published in The Journal of Consciousness Studies claims that consciousness isn’t a unique property of humans-rather, the entire universe is conscious, and humans are all manifestations of its multiple personalities.

The proposition, based on research into dissociative identity disorder in humans, is meant to solve a perennial problem in philosophy: the “hard problem” of finding where consciousness comes from and understanding its true nature.

The hard problem of consciousness can be summed up like this:

    Humans are made up of a bunch of matter (atoms) that organizes itself into biological systems (sensory organs, the brain, etc.), but if humans are just assemblies of various systems, why are we able to reflect on those systems and have individual, subjective experiences?

Why aren’t we unthinking automatons?

Of course, the question of where human consciousness comes from is made even more difficult by the fuzzy definition of what actually constitutes “consciousness.”

One potential theory, called “constitutive panpsychism,” is that consciousness doesn’t just magically spring from the complexity of physical systems like the brain-instead, everything has its own rudimentary form of consciousness, all the way down to atoms.

However, that runs into its own issue, called the “combination problem”: What mechanism would allow a bunch of smaller consciousnesses add up to form a bigger, human-sized one?

This is where dissociative identity disorder (DID) research comes into play.

Scientists have discovered that some people have multiple, subjective consciousnesses contained within their brain, each of which can have its own subjective experience-for example, one woman had a separate personality (called an “alter”) that was blind, and after undergoing a brain scan, it was found that the parts of the brain associated with sight were turned “off” when that alter was in control.

This spurred scientist Bernardo Kastrup to wonder if we were looking at the structure of human consciousness the wrong way.

The research into DID made Kastrup reassess a theory called “cosmopsychism,” which proposes that the universe as a whole is a united consciousness spread across all creation, and all the matter we observe is its “body”: “The physical universe as a whole is the extrinsic appearance of universal inner life, just as a living brain and body are the extrinsic appearance of a person’s inner life.” The issue, of course, is that if everything was part of one consciousness, humans would be aware of everything that’s happening the universe, as well as within each other’s minds.

This is where Kastrup makes his big claim:

“We know empirically from DID that consciousness can give rise to many operationally distinct centers of concurrent experience, each with its own personality and sense of identity. Therefore, if something analogous to DID happens at a universal level, the one universal consciousness could, as a result, give rise to many alters with private inner lives like yours and ours. As such, we may all be alters-dissociated personalities-of universal consciousness.”

Think about that for a few hours.

https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/jun/13/meet-erik-finman-the-teenage-bitcoin-millionaire


Erik Finman is one of the world’s youngest bitcoin millionaires – an achievement he’s not shy about flaunting. The 19-year-old’s Instagram feed is full of ostentatious photos of himself stepping out of private jets or lying on beds covered in money with captions like: “Cash so worthless compared to Bitcoin I’m sleeping on it …”

In one photo he is pictured smoking, with the caption: “Sometimes you just need a good smoke to relax when you have to live with the exhausting burden of so much money and too many beautiful women.” After one of his fans admonishes him, he replies: “Don’t worry guys. It’s not a real cigarette. Just a hundred. Don’t smoke!”
Bitcoin price plunges after cryptocurrency exchange is hacked


The teenager, who first bought bitcoin at age 12 with $1,000 from his grandmother, styles himself in a similar vein to the notorious Martin Shkreli; he’s just younger and not in jail.

However, all is not as it seems with Finman. Far from being a vapid bitcoin bro, he admits his social media presence is a carefully calculated front. “I think being a provocateur is a fun way to get people to pay attention to my ideas,” he tells me over the phone from his current base in San Francisco. “You see the reaction to it, people go crazy. But that helps draw attention to the actual world-changing projects that I want to do.”

Science, Inventions & Techology / The Race To Driverless Autos
« on: June 14, 2018, 04:46:57 AM »
https://www.economist.com/finance-and-economics/2018/06/09/the-market-for-driverless-cars-will-head-towards-monopoly


THE race to bring driverless cars to market is fierce and crowded. All the leading carmakers are in the field: on May 31st SoftBank’s Vision Fund said that it would invest $2.25bn in the autonomous vehicle (AV) arm of General Motors. So are tech upstarts, from Uber to Tesla to Waymo, Alphabet’s self-drive division and the leader in driverless technology, which recently announced plans to add 62,000 minivans to the fleet of cars that will make up its autonomous ride-hailing service. Intense competition has both benefits and costs, but will probably prove short-lived. Thanks to powerful economies of scale, the roads may soon be ruled by no more than a handful of firms.

The advantages of scale begin with data. Like humans, the computers which power driverless cars improve with experience. The computers sitting in AVs are essentially in the business of learning and improving on what a good human driver would do, write Ajay Agrawal, Joshua Gans and Avi Goldfarb in their new book, “Prediction Machines”. The more data they have, the better they become at predicting whether that blur ahead is a pedestrian or sunlight reflecting off the road, and reacting accordingly. And the more miles under an AV project’s belt, the more unusual events—a moose in the road, say—the system faces.

Fortunately such lessons, once learned by computers, are not forgotten, and can be drawn upon by every vehicle using the same software. This, and the fact that AVs never fall asleep at the wheel or pull their eyes from the road to check their phone, suggests that driverless cars should ultimately be far safer than the human-driven sort, which contribute to the roughly 1.25m road deaths each year worldwide, a bigger body-count than malaria. But some AV systems will be safer than others. Those that beat competitors on safety and general reliability will attract more drivers and corporate partners, allowing them to gather more data still.

Regulators might further thin the field, by forcing firms with poor safety records to curtail testing or by setting standards that only the best can meet. Indeed, performance gaps could create ethical quandaries for governments: should the safest firms be forced to share their technology; should they be given exclusive rights to the roads; should policymakers tolerate preventable deaths in cars using inferior software? Such questions might not remain academic for long. Between December 2016 and November 2017 Waymo reported three collisions in 350,000 miles (560,000km) of driving in California; GM, the nearest American competitor, had 22 in 132,000. Neither has been involved in a fatal accident, as Tesla and Uber have.

Scale will yield still other benefits. Though some people will want their own driverless cars, the market is likely to favour AV-based ride-hailing services. Driverless cars will not come cheap. But cars used in ride-sharing services will cost less per mile than personal vehicles, which spend much of their time sitting idle. Maintenance and other costs should be lower for fleets of hailable AVs, because centralised facilities ought to enjoy productivity advantages over distributed mechanics’ shops, and because individual owners are at an informational disadvantage to their mechanics, which creates opportunities for overcharging.

Individual owners might nonetheless shell out for the convenience of a car at their personal beck and call. Yet car-hailing services, like bike-sharing businesses, become more useful as their user-base grows. The more riders there are in an area, the more vehicles it pays to operate, and the more likely a user is to find an open ride nearby. If waiting times fall to almost nothing—as clever AVs learn to roll up at the time you usually leave home or work—the extra value of having your own car will fade.

Convenient, safe AVs, which allow riders to nap rather than mind the wheel, should reduce the hassle of travelling by car. That creates a potential snag: people may travel more, making congestion worse. Ironically, though, scale could fix this too. Congestion occurs because individual drivers do not take into account the inconvenience they cause to others. One way to solve this is to force drivers to bear those costs, by charging them a fee. But governments’ plans to introduce congestion tolling are unpopular—and charging is consequently rarer than chronically jammed highways.

But a ride-hailing service which grew to account for a substantial share of traffic would face a different set of incentives. Congestion costs imposed by one of its cars on another would be internal to that firm, which would have both the reason and the ability to do something about it—by varying prices with demand, perhaps, or by offering reduced rates to customers willing to share a car. Other cars or services could attempt to free-ride on the free-flowing traffic created by dominant firms. But concentrated control over roadways could make the politics of road fees more tractable: as the winning firms’ bargaining power rose, as fewer middle-income households owned their own cars, and especially if, as Daniel Rauch and David Schleicher of Yale University suggest, AV firms join with governments to provide public transport and mobility services.

Waymo regulation

Assuming, that is, that governments do not take a much larger role in the market. Historically, scale economies in transport, from railways to public transit, pushed systems towards monopoly and eventual government interference. Economies of scale will likewise thin the ranks of driverless contenders and create pressure for government involvement. Driverless cars might not be much faster than those controlled by humans. But the market could go from cut-throat competition to oligopoly to state control with extraordinary speed.

https://www.stolenhistory.org/threads/19th-century-compressed-air-cars-and-street-cars-gone-and-forgotten.96/


For me it all started with this hard to explain streetcar setup, where a streetcar was being pulled by a horse. This is one of those instances where an official explanation was running into a sharp contradiction with common sense. I was always wondering why people would go through the hurdles of developing, producing and installing a whole rail system to just use it in a horsecar combination. This of course, had to include the development, and production of the actual car. Just like I mentioned, the rig became known as a horsecar.

Wikipedia contains its own explanation of this horsecar occurrence, “The horse-drawn tram (horsecar) was an early form of public rail transport that developed out of industrial haulage routes that had long been in existence, and from the omnibus routes that first ran on public streets in the 1820s, using the newly improved iron or steel rail or tramway.”

The above sort of gibberish language and bogus explanation could never sit well with me. Common sense was suggesting that a normal person would never go the length required to produce the entire rail system to just pull cars with horses. Indeed, none of us would think that the below provided setups were intended to be used as presented.

Death By Hanging From a Doorknob — The Signature of Pedophilia-Related Assassinations? Eleven People So Far — Who Knew Doorknobs Could Be So Deadly?

06/12/2018 By Stillness in the Storm 2 Comments

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade can be added to the list of doorknob suicides, an obvious tragedy. But is such a method of suicide even possible? How does one kill themselves via doorknob hanging? Seems like an obvious question, and yet, amid the emotional upset related to these events, most never bother asking. A theory gaining traction is that these are not suicides at all, they’re murders of silence. Rumor has it that almost all the celebrity deaths by doorknob over the past few years involved people who discovered an insidious Cabal agenda, usually related to pedophilia and child abuse. Were Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade killed to keep them quiet?

Robert David Steele, former CIA man, posted the following article on his website Phibetaiota, suggesting that indeed these deaths are an attempt by the Deep State to cover up Pedogate crimes.

At this stage, there is no hard evidence to confirm this theory. However, there is a strong correlation between those who committed doorknob suicides and those taking an interest in the Pedogate scandal. This in and of itself provides probable cause to compel an investigation. Since the authorities will likely not engage in such an investigation, it’s up to citizen journalists to take up the task. Hopefully those who accept this call provide their research with integrity and avoid making sweeping unfounded conclusions. The truth movement needs to uphold high standards of investigation else we loose credibility with the very unawakened masses we’re seeking to captivate.

https://www.collective-evolution.com/2016/12/15/ceremonial-magic-sorcery-how-an-ancient-art-became-perverted-by-the-global-elite/

“The underlying, primary psychic reality is so inconceivably complex that it can be grasped only at the farthest reach of intuition, and then but very dimly. That is why it needs symbols.” – Carl Jung

What is ceremonial magic? The works of multiple scholars, from Plato to Manly P. Hall and further down the line, suggest it is essentially the use of rituals and techniques to invoke and control “spirits” or lifeforms that could be existing within other dimensions or worlds. For example, according to Hall, “a magician, enveloped in sanctified vestments and carrying a wand inscribed with hieroglyphic figures, could by the power vested in certain words and symbols control the invisible inhabitants of the elements and of the astral world. While the elaborate ceremonial magic of antiquity was not necessarily evil, there arose from its perversion several false schools of sorcery, or black magic.” (1)

Yet if we examine the works of Plato, we see he specifically condemns, both in the Laws and in the Republic, the idea that “gods” can be influenced by the performance of certain rituals — called “necromancy” or “magical attack.” He believed those who try to control the spirit world should be penalized. (2)

Socrates, about whom Plato wrote much, also spoke of an entity that guided him. It was never given a name, but references to it ranged from daemon to daimon. Socrates believed this entity was a gift, and manifested itself in the form of the voice within, something we all possess. His communication with this entity was actually used as one of the charges against him when he was put to death. Socrates believed it to be a link between mortal man and God. (3)

Socrates seems to be an exception when it comes to using these concepts for perverse reasons, and, as Hall points out, he provided evidence that “the intellectual and moral status of the magician has much to do with the type of elemental he is capable of invoking. But even the daemon of Socrates deserted the philosopher when the sentence of death was passed.” (1)

He was put to death for “corrupting the youth” and spreading “false” information amongst the people, but looking back, he seems to be a figure more like our modern day revolutionaries than a malevolent influence, put to death for exposing the aristocracy’s secrets and encouraging people to question the true nature of reality, to question the doctrine that had been provided to the masses by those in power.

There are also native records containing abundant evidence that the civilizations of Central and South America were heavily involved in these types of arts, both black and white magics. This is well documented in the Popuol Vuh.

If such information is true, it’s hardly surprising. Human beings have always been subject to the lure of power, driven by their ego, greed, and shortsightedness. It’s disconcerting to imagine this power of working with the spirit world in the hands of those who would use it for their own reasons, taken by the power of black magic.

Fast forward to our modern day, and you have stories like that of Dr. Johannes Faust. Through his study of magic, he was able to conjure up an extra-dimensional who served him for many years is several different ways. There is even an excerpt from The Book of Dr. Faust, Wittenberg, 1524 describing his experience. (1)

Napoleon Bonaparte, the French military and political leader, is another example. He used to tell of a “Little Red Man of Destiny,” a ‘spirit’ that appeared at a Royal Palace. Apparently when something important was happening, he would appear. This man, and what others now consider to be silly superstitions and folklore beliefs, genuinely influenced Napoleon and his actions and guided his campaigns. (1)(4)

According to Hall, The Little Red Man of Destiny is an example “of the disastrous results of permitting elemental beings to dictate the course of human procedure.” (1)

Phenomena like these appear in various cultures during different time periods all throughout human history, so what makes us think these practices have stopped today?

There is even a modus operandi for the invocation of spirits in various texts, one being The Complete Book of Magic Science that, according to Hall, was first published in the original British Museum. This is also mentioned by other studies of occult philosophy, like Francis Barret in his Magus, where he describes the use of symbols and more things relating to the occult.

Living creatures existing in a world we cannot perceive have been the subject of lore dating back countless years. It’s embedded in the stories and passed down orally, and written about in multiple religious texts like the Bible and the Quran. I am not referring to extraterrestrial beings in this case, but rather to beings existing in realms indistinguishable to our senses.
Black vs. White Magic

A distinction is made early in the article about black magic and white magic. Basically, black magic is the process of using entities to accomplish a goal through ceremonial magic.

Hall writes:

    By means of the secret processes of ceremonial magic it is possible to contact these invisible creatures and gain their help in some human undertaking. Good spirits willingly lend their assistance to any worthy enterprise, but evil spirits serve only those who live to pervert and destroy. . . . The most dangerous form of black magic is the scientific perversion of occult power for the gratification of personal desire.

Argentina has been bailed out by the IMF with the biggest ever loan in IMF history. UK retailers are in trouble, more stores are closing down and the press is contributing this to online sales. Consumer credit growth has slowed, savings is declining, this is a recipe for a disaster. Corelogic reports that more than half the homes in the US are overvalued, just like in 2008. Household wealth rises to an all time high, but it is all funneled into the 1%, we are now back to the great depression levels. Ben Bernanke believes the economy will not make it until 2020. China’s new Silk Road is the new world trading system.

Far Out Newz / The Games Souls Play
« on: June 09, 2018, 01:58:16 PM »
Apologies for the layout.


Case  52  Dr.  N:  What  is  your  major  recreational
activity in the spirit world? S: To create music. D
r. N: You mean with
musical instruments?
S:  Oh,  there  is  always  that—you  can  pull  any  instrum
ent  out  of  thin
air  and  play  it.  But,  for  me,  there  is  nothing  more
  satisfying  than
creating   a   choir.   The   voice   is   the   most   beautiful   o
f   musical
instruments.
Dr. N: Look, you don't have the vocal chords of an
opera star any
longer, so... ?
S: (laughs at me) Has it been that long since you w
ere a spirit? No
human body is needed. In fact, the sounds we create
 are lighter
and of much greater range than those on Earth.
Dr. N: Can everyone sing the high and low notes?
S: (with enthusiasm) Of course they can. We all have
 the ability to be
sopranos  and  baritones  at  the  same  time.  My  people
can  hit  high
and  low  notes  and  everyone  is  always  on  pitch—they  j
ust  need  a
director.
Dr. N: Could you describe what you do?
S: (quietly, without boastfulness) 1 am a Musical D
irector of souls. A
singing conductor—it is my passion—my skill—my pleasu
re to give
to others.
Dr.  N:  Are  you  better  at  this  than  other  souls  beca
use  of  your  musical
talent in your past life as an opera singer?
S:  Oh,  I  suppose  that  one  follows  the  other,  but  no
t  everyone  is  as
focused  on  music  as  I  am.  Some  souls  in  musical  gro
ups  may  not  be
paying  attention  to  the  entire  score,  (smiles)  Beca
use  of  the  musical
range  possessed  by  souls,  they  need  a  director  to  k
eep  all  these
virtuosos on track. After all, this is recreation f
or them. They want to
have fun as well as produce beautiful music.
Dr. N: So, you enjoy working with choirs rather tha
n an orchestra?
S:  Yes,  but  we  mix  it  up  to  make  the  singing  come  t
ogether.  When
spirits   apply   themselves   to   instruments   and   voice   s
ounds,   it's
wonderful.  It's  not  stray  notes.  The  harmonic  meshi
ng  of  musical
energy  reverberates  throughout  the  spirit  world  wit
h  indescribable
sounds.
Dr. N: Then all this is vastly different from worki
ng with a choir
on Earth? S: There are similarities, but here you h
ave so much
talent because
every soul has the capability for perfection of mus
ical sound.
There is high motivation. Souls love this form of r
ecreation,
especially if they wanted to be able to sing on Ear
th but sounded
like frogs. Dr. N: Do you bring souls from groups o
ther than your
own to be
in this heavenly choir?
S:  Yes,  but  lots  of  groups  like  to  sing  opposite  ea
ch  other  and  see  who
can be the most innovative.
Dr. N: If you were to look into the deeper motivati
ons for souls, can you
help me understand why music is so important for th
em in the spirit
world?
S:  It  takes  you  to  new  mental  levels  ...  moving  you
r  energy  ...
communicating in unison with large numbers of other
 souls.
Dr. N: How large a choral group do you direct?
S: I am partial to small groups of around twenty, a
lthough there are
hundreds of souls from many groups who are availabl
e for me to
direct.
Dr. N: Large groups must be a great challenge for y
ou?
S:  (taking  a  deep  breath)  Their  range  is  staggering
...  vibrations
pouring  out  in  many  directions  ...  everyone  hitting
  incredibly  high
and low notes without warning while I am struggling
 with their cues
... and yet it's all pure rapture.
I will finish this section on recreation with a lis
t of the most popular
games souls play in the spirit world. One of my rea
sons for presenting
the lighter side of soul socialization is to exempl
ify the differences
between group study time and that of recreation. I
have previously dis-
cussed the clannishness and rather insular attitude
s of some soul
groups. I do not wish my readers to assume this is
a representation of
the "outsider-insider" mentality that we so often s
ee in cultural groups
on Earth. There is no jealousy, mistrust or prejudi
ce between spirit
groups. While the younger souls are conditioned to b
e centered on their
own training groups, this does not mean these souls
 see themselves as
being all that different from other groups. Xenopho
bia does not exist in
the spirit world. The information I have about how
spirits from many
groups play games together is one way I have of dem
onstrating the
nature of soul behavior.
Nevertheless, at my lectures, I do feel the necessi
ty of being cautious
in offering too many details about spiritual games.
 There are people
who believe matters of life after death are far too
 serious for such fri-
volities. A few have even commented that my speakin
g about recreation
detracts from the rest of what I have to say about
soul life. Despite these
criticisms, I consider it more important that the p
ublic is aware the
afterlife is not so dreadfully serious that souls c
annot have fun.
The spiritual games I have encountered are never st
rictly enforced by
monitors nor directed by team captains. In fact, th
e "rules" are loosely
interpreted. There are elements of playful competit
ion but without the
emotional aggression one sees in sports on Earth. S
piritual games are
not played with the objective that somebody wins wh
ile others lose.
Games are vigorous and carefree at the same time. O
ur guides encour-
age game participation as a means of practicing ene
rgy movement, dex-
terity and group thought transmission. On the other
 hand, I have had
subjects whose groups do not participate in games i
n the spirit world.
Their separateness is always respected. This is esp
ecially true with the
more advanced souls who are so engaged in other for
ms of energy
training that game playing would be a detraction.
There is a remarkable consistency to game descripti
ons by subjects in
hypnosis. While we can take the memory of a game wit
h us to the spirit
world, it is my belief that certain games with orig
ins in the afterlife are
brought to Earth and modified from unconscious memo
ry for use in a
physical body. The reader can be the judge of the m
ost likely game
origins from the following quotes. I will start my
list of a few popular
games with what appears to be a form of tag:
We chase around, trying to catch each other by flowi
ng fast
in straight lines and then maintaining that speed w
hen
turning sharply. The more maneuverable spirits are
able to
double back, stop and start again quickly without g
etting
caught.
Simple interpretations of tag and other games may b
e combined with
music and dancing. In these versions, especially wi
th the young, souls
will chase each other into areas that have been def
ined as personal
playgrounds:
I love the meadows with trees to climb and tall gra
ss where
we can roll around chasing after each other and pla
ying
leapfrog. We can also shape shift into objects to ma
ke our
games more interesting.
There is a game I hear quite a bit about which remi
nds me of a kind
of dodgeball, where large numbers of souls line up
opposite each other
and throw bolts of energy. One can also recognize e
lements of keep-
away and volleyball in the descriptions of this gam
e called bolt-banging,
which requires quick position adjustments and dexte
rity:
In our game of bolt-banging, we line up in two long
 lines
opposite each other. We create balls of energy and t
hrow
them high ewer an imaginary line or fire them in st
raight or
low trajectories at the opposing players. We must st
ay in a
confined area to exchange bolts without slowing our
momentum. At first it's easy to get out of the way
while
making your own bolts at the same time. Then the te
mpo
increases and our play area looks like a hailstorm.
 When
our bolts are flying around, they can be dodged, or
 caught
and thrown back. The object is not to be inadverten
tly hit
by a bolt. A player who is zapped is not out—he just
 tries
harder to be more agile. We feel the complexities of
 each
soul carried in the bolts which hit us.
Another high-velocity game is something akin to red
 rover, or per-
haps bumper cars, where souls line up opposite each
 other in a square.
Instead of sending one player over at a time to try
 and break through a
chain of arms, as in red rover, these souls rush at
 each other en masse.
One subject said, "This is a game of collision, whe
re we bounce off one
another in a chain reaction of whirling energy." Th
e object seems to be
the creation of a high volume of concentrated energ
y. Another client
who plays this game told me:
The energy flow from all of us is pooled so that ea
ch player
receives a heightened awareness from all the other
souls.
It's an exhilarating game. There is a magnification
 of all our
energy which is unified. Eventually, when the energ
y charge
lessens, we all settle down and engage in a kind of
 folk
dance.
There are many subtle games that my subjects have d
ifficulty in
describing to me. One I have heard about from a num
ber of people,
however, has the name of gemball. The game is a lit
tle like marbles and
lawn bowling combined with the symbolism of gemston
es, which I
reviewed in chapter 6. From case 53, it can be seen
 how displaying col-
ored energy objects, as embodiments of personal cha
racter, need not be
limited to our appearances at the Council of Elders
.

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/05/07/youre-telling-me-technology-like-this-exists-but-were-still-using-oil-gas-coal/



To begin with, “free energy” refers to the idea of a system that can generate power by taking energy from a limitless source. A power generated free from the constraints of oil, solar, and wind, but can actually continue to produce energy for twenty four hours, seven days a week, for an infinite amount of time without the worry of ever running out. “Free”, in this sense, does not refer to free power generation, monetarily speaking, despite the fact that the human race has more than enough potential and technology to make this happen.

If all places in the world had access to limitless energy generation, the implications would be grand. Take poverty for example, many regions around the world are suffering due to a lack of power generation. Free energy would transform all aspects of humanity, including the entire global economy, so much of which is currently dependant on oil.

So, is there such a machine? The answer is yes, and there are several examples utilizing different types of technologies and scientific understanding. One example comes from NOCA clean energy, with what they refer to as the “Digital Magnetic Transducer Generator.” It’s a form of magnetic, clean green technology that can, if scaled up, power entire cities. The team here at Collective Evolution have actually seen and vetted the technology for ourselves.

The main focus of this article, however, is on Paramahamsa Tewari. Tewari was an author, inventor, and retired Executive Director (Nuclear projects) of the Nuclear Power Corporation of India (NPCIL), and it is with great sympathy and sadness that we report to you on his passing which happened on November 27th, 2017.

Tewari invented a machine that produces more power than what is put into the system.

    “Much to my surprise, these concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories around the world, but have not really seen the light of day.” – Dr. Brian O’Leary, former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor (source)

Pictured below is O’leary with Tewari. He’s received praise from many, including legendary quantum physicist John Wheeler,  who admired his work.  You can review that correspondence here.

Over the past couple of years, Collective Evolution has had the pleasure of communicating with Toby Grotz (pictured in the video below), an electrical engineer who has researched new energy technologies since 1973. He has worked in the aerospace industry, was involved with space shuttle and Hubble telescope testing in a solar simulator and space environment test facility, and has been on both sides of the argument when it comes to exploring energy generation. He has been involved in exploring oil and gas and geothermal resources, as well as coal, natural gas, and nuclear power-plants. He is very passionate about new energy generation, and recognizes that the time to make the transition is now.

This has been our contact to and from Tewari over the past few years, as we’ve supported his work in multiple ways, including financially to assist with building a prototype as well as publicity.  Grotz was a close friend and colleague of Tewari.
Out of The Void

Out Of The Void (AUS DEM NICHTS) is a film that recently premiered in Austria, it’s a docudrama about Tesla’s vision and the work of Paramahamsa Tewari. You can view footage of the machine in the film and trailer (below), which has been built and independently tested as high as 250% efficiency.

In fact, a prototype of the machine was tested by  Kirloskar Electric, a manufacturer of electrical generators in India. There, it exhibited 165% efficiency (over-unity).

Below is a picture with, from right, Paramahamsa Tewari, Executive Director Nuclear Power Corporation, Ret., Murlidhar Rao, Technical Director, Karnataka Power Corporation, Ret., Chief Engineer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer. From Left, Vice President of Kirloskar Rotating Machines Group, General Manager Hubli facility.

    The Economic Times of India seemed to be the only media outlet, other than Collective Evolution, to pick up the story.

    Below is a Discussion of test results during the filming of AUS DEM NICHTS (Out of the Void), with the device in the the  Kirloskar facility.

Can you believe it? This type of technology has tremendous implications, and the potential to provide power to billions of people, for infinity, without the need to continually ravage the Earth.

Below is  the docudrama trailer about Tesla’s vision and the work of Paramahamsa Tewari where you will find footage of the machine.
How It Works

Tewari was successful in eliminating the back torque of the generator. What happens when you do that? He explained on his website. There you will find can find more resources about him, his machine and his work.

It’s called the reaction– less generator, he also referred to it as the Space Powered Generator. It allows for the production of power with improved efficiency. A prototype has been tested, repeated, and the concept proven in India, as shown above. It’s the answer to cheap electricity anywhere, and it meets to green standard of no fossil fuel usage or pollution.
Suppression of this Type of Technology?

The fact that technologies like this exist and have been replicated is outstanding and given its implications, it’s extremely confusing to contemplate just how these types of technologies have not made it into the mainstream, or is it?

If you think about the implications of free energy, it literally destroys the control that multiple energy corporations have on the planet. There would be no more need for oil, and ask yourself, how many products and services do we manufacture and use that require oil? Pretty much everything…

Sure, it would still cost money, but at the next level of human development, it doesn’t have to. Again, “free” here refers to the fact that it is extracting energy from a limitless source, not the idea that it would actually be free from purchase.

So, when one brings up suppression of this technology, it’s not hard to believe. That being said, Tewari and his team never experienced direct suppression of his technology.

According to Mr Grotz:

    “It wasn’t long before carriage makers were driving horseless carriages. It wasn’t long before people crossing the continent on trains abandoned the railroads for airliners. Natural gas is replacing coal and there is nothing the railroads, the coal miners, or the coal companies can do about it. Cheaper and more efficient energy always wins out over more expensive energy. Coal replaced wood, and oil replaced coal as the primary source of energy. Anything that is more efficient boosts the figures on the bottom line of the ledger. Dollars chase efficiency. Inefficiency is suppressed by market forces. Efficiency wins in the market place.

    The Engineering Director (electrical engineer) of the Karnataka Power Corporation (KPC) that supplies power to 6 million people in Bangalore and the entire state of Karnataka (10,000 megawatt load) told me that Tewari’s machine would never be suppressed (view the machine here). Tewari’s work is known from the highest levels of government on down. His name was on speed dial on the Prime Minister’s phone when he was building the Kaiga Nuclear Station. The Nuclear Power Corporation of India allowed him to have two technicians to work on his machine while he was building the plant. They bought him parts and even gave him a small portable workshop that is now next to his main lab.”

This was the sentiment of Grotz in an article he published on our site titled:  “Why There Will Be No Supression of New Energy Technology.”

According to Dr. Hal Puthoff, whose professional background includes engineering work at General Electric and Sperry, three and a half years with the U.S. Department of Defence, a consultant to various government agencies, and more, has said said that

    “These are not just fringe scientists with science fiction ideas. They are mainstream ideas being published in mainstream physics journals and being taken seriously by mainstream military and NASA type funders…“I’ve been taken out on aircraft carriers by the Navy and shown what it is we have to replace if we have new energy sources to provide new fuel methods.” (source)

It’s also important to note that ever since the “Invention Secrecy Act” was brought into effect in 1951, over 5000 inventions alone were issued secrecy orders at the end of 2014. (source)

As Steven Aftergood from the Federation of American Scientists reports:

    “The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies in ‘excess of 70-80%.’” (source)

Could other new energy devices be on this list today?

Something to think about, not to mention the black budget, and the recent disclosure of exotic technology from the likes of Steve Justice, for example. He recently retired from a 30 year stint as Director of Aerospace for Lockheed Martin. Himself, along with some of his colleagues within the Department of Defence have actually teamed up to create more awareness about this, and a few other things.

It’s called To The Stars Academy.
Some Science

    “Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel…We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians….Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static, or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheel work of nature.” – Nikola Tesla (source)

The Casimir Effect is a proven example of free energy that cannot be debunked. The Casimir Effect illustrates zero point or vacuum state energy, which predicts that two metal plates close together attract each other due to an imbalance in the quantum fluctuations. You can see a visual demonstration of this concept here. The implications of this are far reaching and have been written about extensively within theoretical physics by researchers all over the world. Today, we are beginning to see that these concepts are not just theoretical but instead very practical and simply, very suppressed.

    Vacuums generally are thought to be voids, but Hendrik Casimir believed these pockets of nothing do indeed contain fluctuations of electromagnetic waves. He suggested that two metal plates held apart in a vacuum could trap the waves, creating vacuum energy that could attract or repel the plates. As the boundaries of a region move, the variation in vacuum energy (zero-point energy) leads to the Casimir effect. Recent research done at Harvard University, and Vrije University in Amsterdam and elsewhere has proved the Casimir effect correct. (source)

A paper published in the Journal Foundations of Physics Letters, in August 2001, Volume 14, Issue 4 shows that the principles of general relativity can be used to explain the principles of the motionless electromagnetic generator (MEG) (source). This device takes electromagnetic energy from curved space-time and outputs about twenty times more energy than inputted. The fact that these machines exist is astonishing, it’s even more astonishing that these machines are not implemented worldwide right now. It would completely wipe out the entire energy industry, nobody would have to pay bills and it would eradicate poverty at an exponential rate. This paper demonstrates that electromagnetic energy can be extracted from the vacuum and used to power working devices such as the MEG used in the experiment. The paper goes on to emphasize how these devices are reproducible and repeatable.

The results of this research have been used by numerous scientists all over the world. One of the many examples is a paper written by Theodor C. Loder, III, Professor Emeritus at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space at the University of New Hampshire. He outlined the importance of these concepts in his paper titled Space and Terrestrial Transportation and Energy Technologies For The 21st Century (2).

    There is significant evidence that scientists since Tesla have known about this energy, but that its existence and potential use has been discouraged and indeed suppressed over the past half century or more  – Dr. Theodor C. Loder III (source)

Puthoff, the American Physicist mentioned above, is a researcher at the institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, Texas, published a paper in the journal Physical Review A, atomic, molecular and optical physics titled “Gravity as a zero-point-fluctuation force” (source). His paper proposed a suggestive model in which gravity is not a separately existing fundamental force, but is rather an induced effect associated with zero-point fluctuations of the vacuum, as illustrated by the Casimir force. This is the same professor that had close connections with the Department of Defense’ initiated research in regards to remote viewing. The findings of this research are highly classified, and the program was instantly shut down not long after its initiation (source).

    “A century from now, it will be well known that: the vacuum of space which fills the universe is itself the real substratum of the universe; vacuum in a circulating state becomes matter; the electron is the fundamental particle of matter and is a vortex of vacuum with a vacuum-less void at the center and it is dynamically stable; the speed of light relative to vacuum is the maximum speed that nature has provided and is an inherent property of the vacuum; vacuum is a subtle fluid unknown in material media; vacuum is mass-less, continuous, non viscous, and incompressible and is responsible for all the properties of matter; and that vacuum has always existed and will exist forever….Then scientists, engineers and philosophers will bend their heads in shame knowing that modern science ignored the vacuum in our chase to discover reality for more than a century.” – Tewari

Another astonishing paper titled “Extracting energy and heat from the vacuum,” by the same researchers, this time in conjunction with Daniel C. Cole, Ph.D. and Associate Professor at Boston University in the Department of Mechanical Engineering was published in the same journal (source).

    Relatively recent proposals have been made in the literature for extracting energy and heat from electromagnetic zero-point radiation via the use of the Casimir force. The basic thermodynamics involved in these proposals is analyzed and clarified here, with the conclusion that yes, in principle, these proposals are correct.

Furthermore, a paper in the journal Physical Review A, Puthoff  titled “Source of vacuum electromagnetic zero-point energy,” (source) Puthoff describes how nature provides us with two alternatives for the origin of electromagnetic zero-point energy. One of them is generation by the quantum fluctuation motion of charged particles that constitute matter. His research shows that particle motion generates the zero-point energy spectrum, in the form of a self-regenerating cosmological feedback cycle.
Consciousness/Spiritual Implications

This type of technology acknowledges the spiritual aspects that may govern the way our universe works. These spiritual aspects, and other phenomena like telepathy, mind/matter influence and more, are now at the forefront of a second scientific revolution; the acknowledgement of the non material and the role it plays in what we perceive as our physical material world.

    “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” ― Nikola Tesla

You can read more about non-material science in the articles linked below:

Distinguished Scientists Gather To Emphasize: Matter Is Not The Only Reality

Space Is Not Empty: What The Whole World Should Know About The Quantum Vacuum

    “What is the reality of the universe? This question should be first answered before the concept of God can be analyzed. Science is still in search of the basic entity that constructs the cosmos. God, therefore, would be a system too complex for science to discover. Unless the basic reality of aakaash (space) is recognized, neither science nor spirituality can have a grasp of the Creator, Sustainer and the Destroyer of this gigantic Phenomenon that the Vedas named as Brahman.” – Tewari from his book, “spiritual foundations.”

Given that these technologies exist,  one of the main points is that it acknowledges the non-material and gives even more credibility to the stories with regards to the creation of matter that’ve been told in ancient Eastern Vedic, Buddhist, and other texts around the world.

It is one point, and proof within science that acknowledges what could actually be the spiritual foundations of the universe.

This type of thing, with credible evidence, can really shake the beliefs of some people. As a result, ridicule, and labels such as “pseudoscience” are quick to follow.

Some people get very emotional when pointing towards evidence which suggest the points made in this article.

These spiritual foundations, despite an overwhelming amount of evidence (as you can see from some of the articles linked above on the topic) are still harshly rejected and ridiculed by mainstream science, simply because it encroaches on long held belief systems.

There is a reason almost all of our founding fathers of modern day science and physics were mostly spiritual mystics.

If we look at quantum theory,

    “Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)

So, we still may have a few decades to go, maybe not, but I believe when humanity is ready for these technologies, that’s when we will begin to see emerge.

Tewari’s machine breaks parts of the second law of thermodynamics, which needs to be adjusted to account for the fact that space is not empty. Is humanity really even willing to look at a machine that breaks our current known laws of physics? In the minds of many, that’s not even possible, but remember this:

    “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.”

This statement was made by Lord Kelvin in the 1900’s and shattered only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. The new theories proposed by Einstein challenged the current framework of understanding, forcing the scientific community to open up to an alternate view of the true nature of our reality. This serves as a great example of how things that are taken to be truth can suddenly change to fiction.

Acknowledgement of such technologies completely changes our understanding of the nature of reality.

Our future is bright if we can loosen the corporate stranglehold that dictates our government policy. We need a new way of doing things here on planet Earth.

https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-04-29-sweden-reveals-why-a-cashless-society-may-not-be-such-a-good-idea.html#


 (Natural News) Is it possible for a society to function properly without the use of any cash? Sweden could have the answer to this question and more, as the country has had a good run of using digital payment systems so far, and many Swedish establishments have helped cashless payment methods almost become status quo.

In a cashless society, consumers will no longer need to carry physical notes or coins. Instead, they will rely on cards or electronic devices to issue payments for any goods or services that they avail. In Sweden, a system that is based around the usage of such items has worked great so far. But a growing number of citizens are beginning to fear for the worst in the future, thinking that going completely cashless leaves them open to some pretty scary potential scenarios.

Only recently, Stefan Ingves, the current head of the Swedish central bank Riksbank, issued a statement warning the country that it could soon be faced with a situation where private sector banks have taken complete control over the national payment system. In his view, it’s something that’s not really desirable. Therefore, he called for new laws that would help to secure public control over any payment system, mainly because a working payments system is a “collective good” that benefits the general public as a whole. (Related: Central banksters say outlawing cash will stop criminals … while stealing trillions from everyone by ‘printing’ money out of thin air.)

According to Ingves, the citizens have every right to not let control of payment systems go to private institutions, much less those that are financially interested, especially for certain things like public works and national defense. “Most citizens would feel uncomfortable to surrender these social functions to private companies,” he said. “It should be obvious that Sweden’s preparedness would be weakened if, in a serious crisis of war, we had not decided in advanced how households and companies would pay for fuel, supplies and other necessities.”

Now based on online reports, these remarks have helped to bring cashless society concerns mainstream in Sweden. In particular, a group called Kontantupproret, or Cash Rebellion, has come into prominence. Its leader, former national police commissioner Björn Eriksson, said that the central bank governor’s statements have helped swing things around for the group, which used to get dismissed as the voice of the technologically illiterate and those who were unwilling to “get with the times.”

In Eriksson’s view, a national cashless payment system could be used as a point of attack that would essentially cripple the nation. “When you have a fully digital system you have no weapon to defend yourself if someone turns it off,” he said. “If Putin invades Gotland [Sweden’s largest island] it will be enough for him to turn off the payments system. No other country would even think about taking these sorts of risks, they would demand some sort of analogue system.”

On a separate note, a recent opinion poll also revealed that a large number of Swedes still prefer to use cash over digital payments systems. The results of the survey showed that seven out of 10, or almost 70 percent, of all respondents wanted to keep the option to use cash. Meanwhile, about 25 percent of them want to go ahead and dive right into being a cashless society.

For now, Sweden sees the need to cater to both groups of people, but if the push toward becoming a cashless society picks up speed and succeeds in converting the country completely, they could be in for a rude awakening, considering all of the threats possible.

Collective Evolution

The republican movement in Britain has recently announced its campaign to make a case for a future referendum in regards to the state of the British monarchy after the queens death.

For years the United Kingdom has been under the monarchy, paying large sums to the royal family every single year and essentially upholding very archaic traditions that in reality do little to add to the lives of the British citizens. Finally, people are starting to see through this charade and question what gives this family the right to sit on these thrones and live this lifestyle?

Republic, is a grassroots movement which includes over 5,000 members and 35,000 supporters feel that the British monarchy is not the “harmless tourist attraction some people think,” but that it has a long history of abusing the money that is funded by the public and meddling in the realm of politics.
Why Do We Even Have A Queen?

The group posted a statement on the evening of the Queen’s birthday, mentioning how the event “reminds us that support for the monarchy is bound up with support for the Queen.” Their website has a pink banner wishing Mrs. Windsor a “happy birthday”, right beside a subtle, or not, hashtag, “Stop the reign.”

In an interview with The Independent, Graham Smith, the chief executive of Republic, shared his and the organizations view to have a referendum as soon as possible. He feels that the period of time between the Queen’s funeral and her son, Prince Charles’s coronation will be an ideal time.

“It will be the first time most people have seen a change in the head of state,” he says. “I think that’s going to be a slightly odd, jarring experience for a lot of people. All of a sudden you’ve got this other monarch who has been hoisted upon us and no debate about who it is going to be.”

“For once, actually seeing hereditary power in practice – you’ll actually see the inheritance of the throne taking place.”

He added: “It [the referendum] is to get rid of it… it needs to be a straight-forward constitutional reform referendum. We may win or we may lose but the succession would change public opinion, it will change the nature of the debate.”

“I think most public opinion is indifferent to the whole thing and awful lot of it is tied up with the Queen. Over the next ten years the debate is going to pick up because people will be coming alive to the fact that Charles is looming on the horizon as King.”

Recently, during a convention of the Alliance of European Republic Movements in Madrid, Mr. Smith said that while there is “nothing wrong with turning 90,” there is “something wrong with turning 90 when you have been Queen of England for sixty-something years.”

In a recording of the event published on YouTube, Mr. Smith added: “When the Queen dies, the moment she is declared dead, Charles is king. So there is no gap. And there is certainly no official plan for a referendum. He is king immediately. The coronation would be about six months later.”

 

“So that will be an opportunity, after the funeral and before the coronation, for us to do some campaigning and say, ‘Hang on a minute, this is the 21st century, if we are going to have a new head of state then perhaps we want to have a vote.’”

The group was more than off put with the BBC’s coverage of the Queen’s birthday, Mr. Smith said, “The Queen’s birthday does not warrant this kind of coverage, it is inappropriate to celebrate a political figure like this and the public just aren’t that excited about the royals.”

“The BBC has a duty to report, not to celebrate the royals.  That reporting must be fair, balanced and proportionate. So far this week the BBC has failed completely on those measures.”

“It’s completely over the top,” Mr. Smith told The Independent. “I don’t wish the Queen anything but a happy birthday but it does raise all these questions about the future of the monarchy.”
Final Thoughts

To those of us who are not living in the UK or have a country that has a monarchy, it seems pretty far out that this sort of thing still exists. As I mentioned earlier, it only takes a little bit of outside the box thinking to realize that having any sort of monarchy at all doesn’t really make sense. What made the people in those families so special and why are so many of our hard earned income tax dollars going to support these lucky/chosen few? This concept feels very archaic, outdated, and it’s about time these types of things were put to an end. Really, for what reason at all do we need a queen or a royal family for that matter?

Let’s hope this campaign gets the attention it deserves and open’s the eyes and minds of millions of oblivious Britains.
