Our civilization lurches along on convenient narratives. The truth glides serenely just beyond their fringes. Not many are up to even clearly understanding the narratives.
Truth and narratives occasionally brush up against each other, but rarely make contact. Thus, we live in a world where madness (lack of enough contact with reality) lurks just below the surface.
There are five different categories of people. The following percentages are, of course, an approximation:
Category 1: Ideas
Those who can see the truth – too small to measure as a percentage.
Category 2: Fixed and Fixated Ideas
Those who create and are served by the narratives in one form or another, (politicians, government employees and the media). 30%
Category 3: Bad Ideas
Those who by their actions seek to extend the narrative even further from reality/truth) (feminists, vegans, warmists, socialists, sexual allsorts etc.). 10%
Category 4: Destructive Ideas
Those who violently agitate for an end to truth and civilization (Antifa, criminals etc.).2.5%
Category 5: No Ideas
Those who read and watch the MSM and are, accordingly, blissfully unaware that anything is wrong with the narrative (that is often over their heads). For as long as they have an income, they have faith in those who do understand. 57.5%
Often, the categories overlap, but most people are primarily and easily placed in one or another.
Narratives and Truth are now colliding. The fantastic world of 2, 3, 4 and 5 will have to be shelved for a few dozen lifetimes.
It takes a while to build a civilization from scratch. Once they collapse, they have never, yet, come back in the same place or form – witness, Egypt, Greece and Rome.
The collapse cannot be reversed once it goes beyond a certain point. I don’t know where that point is, but, having watched this drama unfold for almost 20 years, it can almost be smelt now. Many years ago, I read something that stuck in my mind – ‘inevitable does not necessarily mean imminent’.
We must accept the pain and restore order to the chaotic monetary mess. That means the restoration of circulating Gold and Gold Bonds. That much truth, all on its own, will dissolve most of the narratives that have so harmed our societies.
Some of the old civilizations are barely remembered now. How many have heard of Mali or Carthage? Will the white, Anglo civilization become almost entirely forgotten also?
I would sorely miss the internet, but then we would all be too busy scrabbling in the dirt for food to have much time for such frivolities.
