The Collective Denial of Climate Change

In Breaking the Code of History (BTCH) I dedicated a whole chapter to climate change, and presented evidence that human industrial activity was the cause of climate change. I also expressed surprise that there was so much confusion in the public domain as to the scientific evidence as to whether global warming was real or not.

Bubble Madness

Financial Bubbles have been a characteristic of markets since their inception. These phenomena represent a collective view in the value of an asset that ultimately differs markedly from reality. Once everyone is of the same view and everyone then owns the assets at the focus of the bubble, surprisingly there is no one else to buy said asset, and the price collapses.

What can you do?

After many of my speeches a common question is ,’What can one person do to change the future?‘ This is a question that has been asked through the ages by people who do not agree with the structure of the world around them. Amid the information and educational revolution there is no excuse for the individual not to understand and have an opinion. The key steps for change are as follows:-

Commodities-Copper 2

Copper continues to look weak with its break lower and pull back to the 3300 area. Having dropped some 10% since our initial call, we continue to believe that copper will test 2500 this year . Any move back above 3700 would negate our call.

America, Israel and Iran

To date we have been working on the premise that Israel would by now have pre-emptively attacked Iranian nuclear installations if it had the military capability and if President Obama had not been holding them back.

However the March 2013 Obama visit to the Middle East seems to have heralded a policy change by America which we think opens the way for Israel to strike Iran.

The Winds of Change

‘Breaking the Code of History’ points out that a war is not merely a violent physical conflict, but  that its energy and sources derive from the position of the nations involved upon their point in the cycle of empires. Similarly the vigor that changes leadership within a nation is also dependent on where that nation is on the cycle of empires.

So what can the Western World do?

The answer is both simple and yet seemingly almost impossible to accomplish, without massive commitment and effort. The Western World  needs to rebuild its economies to create real growth and wealth, and then ensure that it has strong armed forces to deter any potential Chinese aggression.

Breaking the Code of History: a brief summary

BTCH was written with the specific aim of analysing man's past, the structure of our world today and how our future could play out by the application of the theory of the five stages of empire. It was designed to offer a new understanding, especially, of the risks that we face.

Leadership and collective moral integrity

The rise and fall of empires and any other governmental system demonstrate two very different value models. As a system rises it is optimistic and looks to the future understanding that decisions today have ongoing consequences for the stability of the empire/system . However in decline many decisions are taken with the mindset of putting out fires and in that entrenched view, set new limitations and thus create new fires .

Thatcher's example of Iconic Leadership

Leadership should be viewed as service.
One of the key elements in resolving safely the crisis of the western world and ultimately moving towards a Sentient World is the concept of how power is wielded by our political leaders, and all those in positions of authority. The Greeks recognized two of the expressions of power, which we might simply call ‘good power’ and ‘bad power’. They believed that power in itself is not good or bad, any more than anger is good or bad. Yet its expression can be harmful or beneficial, damaging or appropriate.
