26th March 2023. I sense the same feeling in people as I feel myself in the commencement of this year. A matter of fundamental rights and principles, a backlash to the last 15 years of erosion of human rights in the name of the ‘war on terror’…. to the spending of kazillions on arms, while many starve to death or die of treatable disease….. to the corporatisation of sport and its sell out to big gambling, to the perversion and monopolisation of the traditional media….to the politicians, corrupt and honest,with their self serving obscene pensions and benefits,to Big mining,the Big Pharmas,the Corporate Barons with their tame remuneration companies,arms traders and drug lords; a backlash to greed and corruption in all its forms and guises, disgust and disillusionment on a massive scale.

26th March 2023. News that The Swiss Federal Bank has just made 17 billion euros of Bonds disappear must be of great comfort to the bond holders and given the remainder of us a warning as to the fragility of the global banking system and the ruthlessness of the gnomes who inhabit it. “By this means the government may secretly and unobserved, confiscatethe wealth of the people, and not one man in a million will detect the theft.” – John Maynard Keynes
