As humans, we love to look back at history and remind ourselves that the present isn’t so unique.

Take the 18th century, for instance. France was the world’s superpower, but eventually became complacent, thinking they had a divine right to rule and could spend recklessly.

They spent money like drunken sailors on welfare programs, free hospitals, and grand monuments.

They maintained vast territories, constantly waged wars, and even had an intelligence service that spied on everyone, including the King.

But they couldn’t foot the bill.

With skyrocketing deficits, they plunged deeper and deeper into debt and devalued their currency. Eventually, their economy collapsed, leading to 26 years of hyperinflation, civil war, military defeats, and even genocide.

Stop me when this sounds familiar.

France isn’t the only guilty party. History shows, from ancient Mesopotamia to the Soviet Union and Sukarno’s Indonesia, that societies crumble when they overextend their resources.

Some years ago a NASA-funded research paper echoed these thoughts, pointing out that advanced civilisations have collapsed time after time, often followed by long periods of decline.

Who cares what election promises are made, only to be forgotten? Today’s mismanagement of resources could easily lead to a similar fate unless real policy changes are made.

Look at our modern society: massive debts, deficits, money printing, wars, resource depletion. History tells us that dominant powers rise and fall, empires come and go, and monetary systems and social contracts are always in flux.

But there’s a bigger historical trend: the rise of humanity. We’re toolmakers, problem-solvers, adapters. The world isn’t ending; it’s just resetting. There’s a big difference.

Consider our current system. A tiny elite controls the money supply, spy networks, weapons of mass destruction, food, media, medicine and education. They can – and will – seize wealth and burden future generations with debt.

Yet, these are the same folks who spent outrageously on track-and-trace systems and COVID ‘equipment’ for no discernible benefit.

It’s a mess, and everyone knows it but they’re asking us to vote them into office again.

What’s your preference – diarrhoea or dysentery?

‘Change” is the work most political contenders use. And we fall for it. Every time. We’re taught that voting empowers us to make radical changes, but that’s a fairy tale.

Voting merely swaps out the players, not the game itself.

People have a sense that change is necessary, but are often held back by their own unwillingness to change. Any resistance makes the job of bringing about change undesirable, so running away seems a better option. Technology, though, could be a real game-changer.

We have the tools to revolutionise how we live and govern ourselves. The current system, with a room full of men deciding how much money to print, is laughably outdated for our 21st-century society.

It’s always time to rise to the occasion. It’s a case of us or them, life or death, truth or lies, freedom or slavery – for not just ourselves but our children, our future generations, and the entire human race. That’s what makes every day that opportunity of a lifetime.

Our marvellous creative Universe is there to meet you if you dare walk the path. It may be the path of most resistance but the alternative is not worth considering.

Most of us haven’t quite woken up to the fact that there is something extraordinary happening. Right now. Slowly and silently, people are beginning to realise how crazy it is to live in this society.

With the advent of the Internet, the people are no longer speechless. There is a real voice.

You’ll even meet your true self, what you’ve been looking and longing for your whole life!
