Reader’s links for April 1, 2022

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  1. I went to my uncle’s funeral yesterday. My cousin told me he passed instantly in the elevator going from the eighth to the ground floor of his retirement home. He was heading out for a muffin. I don’t want to sound insensitive, but it lends even more literal meaning to the expression “dropping dead”. Let none of us go for our own proverbial muffins any time soon. Knock on wood.

    I was thinking about how mercifully he departed, and about how lucky he was to die an old man. Anyone who makes it so far has won the game. He survived the war growing up in Germany and everything else along his own road less travelled. His children spoke lovingly of his mortal coil and of his legacy. Tears fell to the floor, each one a single, sweet piano plink as it landed, until their cacophony somehow crescendoed into his favourite song over the funeral home speakers to end the ceremony: Strauss’s Blue Danube.

    The river is an appropriate metaphor for this life. It occurs frequently to me the winding of men of such vintage. A few years too young to have been drafted into war, a lucky change of country here, another lucky change of country there. And all for the most part enjoying an unprecedented stretch of history between now and the end of WW2 hailed commonly as unparalleled in its expansion of peace, prosperity and freedom. Talk about winning the game. It is, however, not completely correct.

    Just as the kind eulogy glosses the sinner into saint, revisionists sell us historical lies of all kinds. As we stand now at the precipice of the Fourth Turning (miraculously sharing almost the exact same timeline as my 84-year old uncle) we witness the creak and strain of the boat of monetary paradigm set to sink into the river, along with all the bounty of its deficit-financing and fractional-reserve banking utility:

    As I sat and listened during the funeral I glanced at the photo of my uncle’s handsome younger face atop his closed casket. He spoke to me. “Zee difference between you and I iss I did not haff zee elevator operator, but you do.”

    His meaning was lost to me, until it wasn’t. The elevator operator, almost extinct, has made a comeback. His job is to press the button, up or down, to get us to our floor. In our time the elevator operator has added two additional floors. Above the top floor on the panel is an “H” button. Below the basement floor is another “H” button. The State is our operator–the arbiter over the final verdict of our behavior. There is no “P” on the panel for Purgatory.

    Depending on how our monetary problems resolve we will end up with some form of hard money, or soft. Hard money demands discipline and produces real prosperity. None of this 2% ponzi inflation targeting nonsense. Soft money finances capricious things like gender studies, war, corruption and Modern Monetary Theory. China’s social credit system is another graphic by-product of the tyranny of fiat. Scoring the minutia of men is not merely a sign of a failing state, but rather the explicit manifestation of state paranoia that has already fallen truly, madly and deeply into the collectivist abyss. Red China has, indeed, evolved quickly.

    Will your elevator go up, or down?

    Uncle Vlad has played the ultimate April Fool’s joke this morning. His demand of rubles for gas is a real knee slapper. That’s a hard-money prank if ever there was one.

  2. 2.319.800.000.000 Euro – das ist die deutsche Schuldenbilanz nach Corona

    Deutschland hat Rekordschulden angehäuft. 2021 stiegen die Verbindlichkeiten nochmals um 6,8 Prozent.

    Die Unterschiede bei der Pro-Kopf-Verschuldung zwischen den Bundesländern sind gewaltig. Beim negativen Spitzenreiter ist die Belastung allerdings deutlich gesunken.

    Der deutsche Staat war noch nie so hoch verschuldet wie nach zwei teuren Coronajahren 2020 und 2021.

    Bund, Länder, Gemeinden sowie Sozialversicherung einschließlich aller Extrahaushalte hatten Ende des vergangenen Jahres Miese in Höhe von 2319,8 Milliarden Euro, wie das Statistische Bundesamt mitteilte.

    Das sind 6,8 Prozent oder 146,9 Milliarden Euro mehr als ein Jahr zuvor.

    Große Unterschiede gibt es bei der Pro-Kopf-Verschuldung zwischen den Bundesländern.

    Das zeigen WELT-Berechnungen auf Grundlage der aktuellen Zahlen des Statistischen Bundesamts.

  4. sky news UK – The woman who rolled out the COVID vaccine

    Dame Kate Bingham was chair of the UK Vaccine Taskforce during the coronavirus pandemic and was in charge of procuring vaccines and deploying them in the early days of the spread of the virus.

    But despite her achievement and the success of the vaccine, she says the pandemic is far from over.

    She discusses how she was recruited to the role and the criticisms of cronyism she faced with Sky News’ Beth Rigby.

  5. Government of Canada reveals Fully Vaccinated account for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 Deaths over the past month; the majority Triple Jabbed

    The latest official data from the Government of Canada paints an extremely concerning picture for those who have decided to succumb to three doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

    The triple vaccinated now account for the majority of Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations, and deaths.

    With the vaccinated population as a whole now accounting for 4 in every 5 Covid-19 deaths, all of which are among the triple and double jabbed.
    The Canadian Covid-19 figures are produced by the Government of Canada (see here).

    Their latest data is available as a downloadable pdf here.


    Page 20 onwards of the downloadable pdf contains data on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths from the very start of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign in Canada on 14th Dec 20 all the way through to 13th March 22.

    But these figures are incredibly deceptive because of the fact the Government of Canada has chosen to show an overall tally on cases, hospitalisations and deaths from as far back as 14th December 2020. This means they are able to include a huge raft of cases, hospitalisations and deaths that occurred in the January 2021 wave when just 0.3% of Canada’s population were considered fully vaccinated.

  6. CEO of BlackRock demands Russian Invasion is used to accelerate introduction of Government controlled Digital Currency

    The CEO of BlackRock thinks the war in Ukraine and the events surrounding it could be used to accelerate the adoption of digital money controlled by central banks.

    Along with Vanguard and State Street, Blackrock is considered one of the “Big Three” index fund managers that dominate corporate America, and ultimately the world.

    By November 2020, the “Big Three” managed US$15 trillion in combined assets, equivalent to more than three-quarters the size of the US economy and combined, they were the largest owner in 88% of the S&P 500 companies. By January 2021, the “Big Three” had almost US$18 trillion in assets under management.

    Now, in a letter to shareholders sent Thursday 24th March, Larry Fink wrote that the adoption of digital money controlled by central banks could prove to be one of the outcomes of the war that are currently by and large under the radar.

    According to Fink, whose own company manages $10 trillion worth of assets, countries around the world will be reevaluating what he called their “currency dependencies.”

    With the onset of the war, the US and its allies added Russia’s central bank to their list of entities targeted by sanctions, which brought about a surge in transactions on centralized Bitcoin exchanges in both Russia and Ukraine, and in both of their currencies.

    […]Fink also stated that “a thoughtfully designed” global digital payment system can improve international transactions, reduce cross-border payment costs, and the risk of money laundering.

    In other words, if they can introduce this, then the who, what, where, when and why of your purchases will ultimately be under the control and permission of your Government.

  7. UK Acquires Israeli-Made Body Armor for Women Soldiers

    The UK’s defence ministry will, in April, begin issuing body armour specially designed for women.

    The Virtus Scalable Tactical Vest (STV) has been adapted following its introduction for men in close-combat roles.
