    Way to go James. Really looking forward to the new series and acting upon any and all great solutions that we can utilise to bring in peace and prosperity for mankind.

  2. thomas.j says:

    I hope SolutionsWatch will also expose fake grassroots movements. We see a lot of these in the climate change / environmental movements (as exposed by http://www.wrongkindofgreen.org).

    • Blameitontheboogie says:

      Thank you for sharing that site which I haven’t come across before. I was involved in the green movement for many years and it is now nothing like the movement I was part of. Like so many other causes and organisations it has now been infiltrated and compromised.

  3. rueckl1b says:

    I like this idea of solutions.
    Let me describe mine and see whether it resonates.
    It is GARDENING

    My family started this solution in 2020 after our travels by car and tent around Europe got restricted so much, that it is no fun anymore.
    We started to build a small house with a big garden in the middle of nowhere near to the city we are living in.
    Target is to have a traditional farmers-garden, like you can find in open-air museums around here in Northern Germany.

    We are hitting the following aspects:
    * Having fresh vegetables and fruits
    * Doing something basic and non-digital outdoor
    * A peaceful place for the family and friends to convene
    * Getting out of the city from time to time

    … and yes, it will take years to develop, therefore it is a Multi-Generations-Project

    • Blameitontheboogie says:

      Sounds great. Sadly I’m in a flat now and no longer have a garden but it is a source of great pleasure. I’m sure you will have many happy hours developing and enjoying your garden and the taste of freshly picked fruit and vegetables is just wonderful plus the feeling of harmony working with nature.

      • Alchemist says:

        Look into hydroponics and vertical gardening systems.

      • eagleheart says:

        I live in an apartment in the city, so I make it a point to get all my produce from my local farmers market. I bought a deep freeze, so all year round I eat only organic vegetables from the vendors at the market. Although I’m not growing the food, to prep and cook all these veggies takes about 20 hours a week, and definitely keeps me in touch with nature. I have never been healthier! This year I have started growing sprouts/microgreens in my apartment(super easy)!

    • mkey says:

      May your potatos and tomatoes prosper. Just don’t go overboard with chilly peppers.

    • starfire says:

      Hi.Your comment was very interesting. You mentioned N. Germany. I’m an American living in Oldenburg for many years. Maybe we could make contact and share ideas, local farmers, whatever. You can email me at davidjon@web.de. Hope to hear from you.

      David

    • David Haag says:

      Go for it. Years ago I found out that I have a brown thumb. I kill more than I grow. Good thing is that my community has a thriving farmer’s market and I am not deprived because of my poor gardening skills. My neighbor supplies me with fresh eggs and the local supermarket has a decent supply of grass-fed, non-hormone, non-antibiotic, happy meat products and other organic necessities. I do avoid anything from our oceans although I do miss lobster, shrimp, and tuna. Anything one can do to minimize the chemical poisons in the marketed food supply is helpful to a long healthful life. Since none is perfect I do like hydroxyacetylene or C2H6O with H20.

    • Octium says:

      Everyone should get into gardening, apart from obvious reasons such as securing your own food supply and getting exercise etc, it is highly educational.

      For starters, it’s not easy to do on a large scale, it requires problem solving skills. If you learn how to deal with bugs and things in your own garden, understanding the criminal elite is not much different. They are all cold blooded parasites.

    • carvers says:

      Hi rueckl1b!
      Your new life sounds very similar to mine, outside the city, gardening, growing produce, keeping free range poultry for eggs and companionship and generally making a tranquil space for family and friends to visit. It’s been a steep learning curve and well worth it. The only difference is I’m in South Spain!

  4. Paul says:

    Sam Walton stressed to his employees that when they were checking out their competitors, they should be focused on what the competition is doing that customers visit their stores instead of Walmart, not what the competition was doing poorly at.

    Happy New Year!
    I just read an article from Mercola.com stating that Positive emotional content gathers more followers than Negative.
    As the old saying goes; Smile and the world smiles with you, Frown, and you frown alone.
    “Solutions” will certainly get more attention than Dooms Day messages, yet one day after witnessing a Communist style takeover of the Media and Corporate Government in America, it is hard for me to be positive. It seems that the Truth is being totally shut out and the masses are being manipulated by Media Propaganda in ways that I would have only thought possible in Communist counties like China.
    Having been a Libertarian, I am no big fan of Trump, however I have seen undeniable Voter Fraud which has clearly been denied on all Media platforms. The suppression of Truth and mind manipulation by the Media is more than I have ever experienced. Biden is clearly in Bed with China and the Truth is not on his side, yet it seems that the Truth doesn’t matter any more.

    I spoke with my neighbor last night where he told me that all of his favorite Youtube channels were removed. I am going to say that this was done prior to the January 6th Vote by Congress on whether to accept the Editorial College results, so that the powers that should not be could Control all of the Media. Indeed, as I went on line to get up to date info I could not find any, (and I was not using Youtube), so I turned on the Propaganda Box, where even the local FOX Channel was spewing how absurd it was for people to believe that there was any Election Fraud.
    If they can control all Media we must find other ways to Communicate!

  7. Blameitontheboogie says:

    An Irish scientist named Dolores Cahill, who I’ve met and who is a very good woman, has joined with others to set up a World Freedom Alliance https://worldfreedomalliance.org/ She has also joined with others to set up a new airline https://www.freedomairway.com/ This is intended to allow people to travel without any restrictions and without the dreaded and misnamed freedom pass. Please check them out.

    James is right we need to look at solutions not just problems.

    • lovetodust says:

      The World Freedom Alliance is planning a 2 day event this February, 2021 somewhere in Florida. You can find info on their website.

      I refuse to fly since it requires a mask and possibly being covid tested, so I am actually thinking of driving from New England.

      I think that airline idea sounds great. I hope it goes through.

    • minnie says:

      I’ve just been catching up with the interview with Prof Cahill which is available on the Richie Allen Show podcast for Wed 6th Jan in the second hour of the programme. She is so inspiring! And she probably has no idea that she’s an agorist.

      As well as discussing the new airline she is cofounding, “Freedom Air”, she also discussed (1 hour 18 mins) the establishment of an alternative autopsy service, to investigate the true reason behind deaths and whether they were caused by coronavirus or vaccine side-effects, and at 1 hour 33 mins she spoke about “The Great Resist”, an alternative to the World Economic Forum and the current banking and tax system. She did say that this would be on a free market basis and that it would be opposed to the globalist system.

    • katiyi says:

      Thank you so much! I was totally unaware of the existence of the World Freedom Alliance. That is so encouraging. You made my day.

  8. Alchemist says:

    Perfect 👏👏 thank you, James!

    Freedom cells is a good place to start. The website is not the most user-friendly, but the concept is great.

    Also practice doing things offline. Break the tech hold they have over us. Leave your slave device behind from time to time. Have important conversations in-person. Post truth stickers and banners in public places. Network offline with like-minded people as much as these times allow.

  9. 8Gc58 says:

    Lovely change, James!

  10. fer67 says:

    Gardening is one part of the solution. That’s thinking on the individual level. We need to take apart the entire system locally and it’s entirely possible.
    First step is to stop giving our $$ to the megacorporate system by stopping shopping at their stores and find local small business alternatives. Yes in the beginning they will be selling what is made by the globalists but they can still keep the profits circulating locally for the most part until we can implement import substitution. We all need to stop going to MallWart and Costco and other global corporate outlets. We can find local marketplaces. Yes Facebook is trying to take over that area but we need to watch out for that too! Better to have local networks for buying and selling, even if for now it is via craigslist or kijiji, which are better than facebook. We can start maintaining small engines, repair and reuse our equipment; we can develop local alternatives.

    Second we need to change from hierarchical institutions that put all power in the hands of one person. Think co ops with horizontal voting systems. Food co ops like the Kootenay Co op which is run by members. Banks that are membership based and don’t charge interest or get hooked in to the globalist system. Local credit systems. Local currencies. Local operation of food, energy and water systems. yes there is more money in pockets from globalist corporations but they literally rape the land, dam the water and poison the food. That has to stop.

    Look at new systems like composting toilets rather than massively centralized sewage systems. Joe Jenkins has tons of info on this via his book Humanure. Putting any manure in water is the worst thing we can do. We have to learn to compost it safely and reuse on the land rather than buy chemicals.

    Systems like water harvesting. Root cellars for low energy input food storage. Food processing with natural systems like fermentation.

    A book I recommend is Green Wizardry by John Michael Greer. Others on improving home insulation systems, home design for design level improvements. Lots of books on all this on Chelsea Green.

    Joel Salatin on grazing animals and improving soils via grazing rotations. In fact Joel Salatin on a lot of stuff to do with farming.

    We need to take back control of our communities, right now they are literally controlled by the corporations. That’s why they are going for the death blow against small business. Once those are gone, we are all on our own. I see zero accounts on any social media anywhere talking about supporting local small business. I can’t believe that so many people either can’t connect the dots while they are supposedly woke on everything else but then complain about having to wear a mask at MallWart. If they don’t get the critical importance of finding local alternatives now, they are dooming their children to slave jobs at MallWart etc.

    These days where I live (Portland, Oregon … yes, that Portland) you can hear the constant cry of an ambulance or police car responding to some nearby event. It has gone on so long now, that I often wake at night and imagine hearing a distant siren through my earplugs. If I take them out, there is nothing there. The world is going to shit. I should hide in my house and hope it passes me by.

    Lately I have been thinking that this situation is like the story of those other sirens, those that would wreck Odysseus on the rocks. Distraction is death. The path to safety demands complete attention. Focus on where you want to go, the destination.

    Bravo James. We truly do have enough distractions.

    The ship needs to be steered past the rocks.

  12. UseLogic says:

    The best initial solution is to get people to stop cooperating in completely bogus and fraudulent (s)elections.

    Given that any sane person can plainly see that the Biden election is a swindle, it shouldn’t be difficult to convince people that voting in Federal elections is a king size waste of time and that TPTsB are laughing at those dupes that take it seriously.

    With the electronic voting machines, they can manufacture votes in any quantity they want and that’s exactly what they did, along with the mail in scam.

    I suggest people get a white T shirt and hand paint a slogan on it, front and back:
    Please don’t vote.
    Ask me why.
    Then walk around town as exercise to display it. If it’s hand painted, then people will realize it’s not some organized endeavor. If people see various hand painted examples of the same slogan, then they know it’s a grass roots movement and will be more receptive.

  13. slurry says:

    It’s a tough thing for people to grasp that they live in a world where “authority” and the ultra wealthy indeed conspire to control and degrade them. One of the main reasons, I find, that people reject the notion is the overwhelming feeling of helplessness in the face of something so intimidatingly powerful. Having a digital, digestible encyclopedia of possible solutions can only serve to help newcomers swallow that pill. This is an excellent idea and obviously a great way for people to get a positive perspective on creating/crafting their own order in an ever increasing chaotic world.

  14. slurry says:

    Also, dear Corbett community, I’m joining the fight to help try and push people away from YouTube and I have started a lbry/odysee channel. I will be offering free content for what I’m best at, which is teaching drums as I believe music is the language of the universe and that it can help keep spirits up. If any of you guys are on lbry/odysee, I would absolutely appreciate some help with building my page 🙂 thanks!

  15. raven says:

    Yes to solutions. I am headed to the woods, myself, for as long as I can be there. Just me and my starter watercolor kit. Heal mind, body, spirit. Stalk what is left of freedom in the still-great American forests. Just getting outside conventions of toxic standard housing and the electrical grid helps sanity and healing. I may get to some permaculture projects out west, natural building, etc. I may fall back to the organic farmhand gig come spring. My overall plan is to develop more value for the agora – continue to grow food, bake, can; start making candles, jams, herbal tinctures; further evolve qigong practice and aerobic fitness, etc. Efficiently stack functions supporting well-being, freedom, aliveness, community, beauty, contribution, etc. If things deteriorate much further politically, Central America moves up the planning charts 🙂

    Jerry Day gets into the very important subject of currency. This topic ties in with self issued credit.

    Sadly, he’s still mainly posting his videos on themtube, but I have backed up this one. I wanted to reupload this one, but my connection is acting up so I’ll leave it for a rainy day.

    Banking alternative:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JAK_Members_Bank

    https://jak.se/ Sorry but this is in Swedish — part of future survival is that we all need to speak several languages. I can read it but you will have to use google translate unless you speak Swedish.

    Does anyone have any research to substantiate the claim that thousands of local currencies were created during the Great depression?

  18. Beau Boeye says:

    James, I’ve always been a fan of your solutions-based content. I’m very much looking forward to this series!

    My wife and I are currently working on revamping our use of social media. This past year she’s really started to understand how these platforms are controlled, especially with the unbelievable amount of censorship…

    // Website Social Media Links? //
    James, I’ve noticed that you don’t have a place on your website that lists which platforms you utilize/post your content to. Is there a reason for that? I know you’ve done videos in the past about the various platforms that are out there, but I felt it’s something that’s currently missing from your website. Obviously you want people to visit your website instead.

    // Obsidian – A Knowledge Base App //
    I also want to share a program called Obsidian that I’ve come across which I’m very excited about: https://obsidian.md/
    I know back around 2013 when I was looking into the works of Richard Grove, Jan Irving, and others they utilized, and probably still do, a knowledge base app… brain something? This program is just that. It’s utilizes markup files and all your data resides on your PC. It’s pretty simple yet very powerful.

    As a relative newcomer, I have found the propaganda watch series informative, an excellent toolkit. This series looks like a further maturation. Looking forward to propagating solutions.

    With the Tulips doing well, I hope the banksters be pushing up daisies this year.

  21. napaj says:

    Brilliant, brave & timely! My intuition today has been to stay away from any headlines in mainstream or alternative press having to do with protests, where President Trump may or may not be, plans to remove him immediately from power, whether the military will back him during the next 10 days, etc. It all seems like chaos & distraction. I am focusing, instead, on small things that are within my power to affect, such as deleting my Amazon account. My family is attempting to regain power over our data by opting out of Google, Microsoft, etc. It will take some time to do this. I’m not even sure HOW to do it. We plan to retire our smart phones & simplify, so that apps don’t have a central place in our lives. We have a daughter who is a senior in high school, making plans for college, & this is also a place for positive strategizing, as we face the lack of medical freedom in many university CV19 protocols. Thank you for the positive energy, Mr. Corbett. You truly exemplify the idea of being able to hold 2 different & opposing concepts in your mind at one time, as you’ve eulogized our loss of freedom as humans so eloquently…yet also strive to make the world a better place.

  22. robert.t says:

    Yes, yes indeed. Be positive, get gardening and so on.

    But let me here praise again the sheer deliciousness of detecting, exposing and ridiculing the propaganda of the vile media. That propaganda will continue to gush over the wider public even as we garden and swap seeds.

    Cultivate and swap, by all means.

    But let’s keep detecting, exposing and ridiculing. Because everything in media is a deception, a manipulation, a conditioning or an advertisement and life is immediately better without that putrid mental slop most people still feel obliged to consume so regularly.

    Stay a bit negative, without apologies or guilt over our “negativity”. We need that negative.

    And tell someone every day that the OFF switch is our life, our sweetness and our hope.

    OFF!

  23. According to Champat Rai Jain, the “Four and Twenty Elders” mentioned in the New Testament are the 24 Jain Tirthankaras. So maybe we should form a Jainism political party?

  24. bladtheimpaler says:

    This is a superb idea for an on going series!

    Foremost is educating yourself on the forces and agenda arrayed against us and their methodology in acting. To wit Catherine Fitt’s recent interview on the how and where we are all,’no one left behind’, being taken. Now YT banned: https://www.bitchute.com/video/j4WDeu9NOqNj/

    Another valuable researcher on what and how the WEF’s ‘You will own nothing and be happy’ economic paradigm of getting blood from a stone will look like is person extraordinaire Allison McDowell. Here’s taste of her knowledgeabilities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG4qcvnG90w
    I had to watch this one twice to grasp the full extent of what Allison was laying out here because this exploitation is so hidden behind what sounds like well meaning rhetoric as the billionaires will still have to circulate/invest their wealth in order to gain a profit return and McDowell knows how this will be done!

    Now armed to the brim with this knowledge we must turn to Mark Windows (Windows on the World.net I believe) and his activism as an organizer for push back at the local municipal level where NWO change agents are most active. He speaks to and advises groups that wish to take back the narrative. Mark has clear cut ideas on how to turn the tables on the sustainable-development-Delphi technique-pandemic using change agents surrounding and implementing globalism at the local level. He seems to have a great understanding of Saul Alinsky’s (the guy that would make the local pyramid cap shit their pants when he came into town) methodologies for community organizing but has adapted these techniques to fit the current situation to avoid infiltration by disruption agents and other forms of targeted malfeasance. He writes and produces audio and video broadcasts on this subject as well as others of interest. Here’s a sample of his broadcast work which is backed extensively with written material at his web site.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0ZTP1zwmy4

    All three, especially McDowell and even more Mark Windows would give the Corbett Report audience some fire in their belly.

    It often boils down to protests being ineffectual and eventually energy wastes while actions at city council or its outreach rpove most effective in stopping NWO agenda dead in its tracks.

    When done we’re off to the races…..

  25. BrendaLeeK says:

    A very timely idea. I have parents in their 80’s. They’re totally propaganded lost cause there. But propaganda wow a problem. Solutions yes a collective of solutions. Collaboration as there is no single solution. The problem/S are not singular either.

  26. darby_m says:

    I agree! It is time to focus on solutions! Us old hands know all about the problem. I humbly share my offering here https://odysee.com/@DeFiDarby:8/Decentralized-Finance-(and-other)-Solutions:b?r=D7aJ49EVRvFLJxHADBCRpm8u8c1fXcpy Let us make a new and free world together!

  27. NorthernBean says:

    To James Corbett: Best wishes on pivoting now to solutions. We can do ongoing analysis, but you are quite correct, people can become addicted to, entrapped–and enslaved–by pure analysis.

    Analysis must serve action.

    To those who consistently denounce voting and protesting, I respectfully disagree. It is true that these things disappoint. But they are useful. I have friends who travelled to Washington, D.C.; this week. I supported that action and would have gone myself if circumstances permitted. The good that is achieved in voting and protesting is not necessarily winning in a ‘prima facie’ sense. Other goods can be achieved though, admittedly, these are not the primary goods. Further, as certain things develop, participation in–and acknoledgement of–the former and arguably increasingly illegitimate system will become useless and ill-advised. I suspect that this will become obvious rather suddenly.

    I am posting podcasts. There are two involving the physical hazards of mRNA vaccines, not just for the individual, but for the human species. A link to an inteview at ‘Catholic Family News’, which is here:

    https://catholicfamilynews.com/blog/2020/12/30/more-ethical-dilemmas-for-the-covid-vaccines-interview-with-dr-david-schmitt/

    I support a variety of attempts at solutions asa well as hypotheses for theories of action. I encourage the many of you.

  28. minnie says:

    DW Documentary did a great investigation into Covid leading to a cashless society recently (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4KpZ2MeSE0) and at about 22.45 mins in they interviewed one of the founders of barzahlen.de which is a phone-pay system that does not keep users’ data.

    It’s probably not the perfect solution – one of their “partners” is Amazon – but it shows that even if you do go “cashless” there could be ways to opt out from the central banking machine.

  29. udual says:

    Way to go James. Where attention goes there energy flows. Let’s put our focus on the solutions, our lives would be better off for it in spite of the shenanigans of those who wish to control us against our will. Truly glad I found you and how you are evolving. Peace & Love.

  30. minnie says:

    Another solution – ditch the smartphone, as James has been advising for years. I finally got round to it this year. Actually I haven’t exactly ditched them – I’ve just removed the SIM card from two of my old “smart” phones, an Android and an iphone4 (you can replace most of the iphone4 parts, including the battery) and I use them for apps.

    For making phonecalls, I use my Mum’s old flip phone, a Samsung GT E1190 from 2011! It works pretty well on the 2G network, apart from annoyingly turning itself off now and then, and texting is a pain.

    I’d love to know if there are any more up-to-date 2G non-“smart” phones. In fact, I know that there are, and I think there are modern versions of the Samsung GT E1190. But do they have secret tracking devices? Are they really as good as the older versions? Can the batteries be replaced?

    An investigation into this would be welcomed.

    • robert.t says:

      The other day I was able to load Ubuntu Touch on an old Google tablet. Sadly, I had no luck with my old Google phone (6p), but I can report that Ubuntu Touch, just one of the Linux solutions for phones, is an okay operating system. On the tablet I can browse and do all the usual stuff, free of Android and Apple.

      People are loading Ubuntu Touch on devices like Nexus 5, which gives them a working phone as well as entertainment, email, browsing etc. Some of these are sold on ebay and elsewhere.

      I actually find smart phones easier to use than my Samsung Rugby dumb phone, and the way Linux is developing for the phone it may be possible to have the best of both worlds. The Librem 5, provided it lives up to expectations, will have quite good specs as well as replaceable battery. It will also run on a fully-fledged o/s, no different to a Linux computer. Worth thinking about.

      • minnie says:

        Interesting! The non-removable battery would rule out the Nexus 5 for me. But I’ll keep an eye on the Librem 5. A few years ago I got quite excited about the Ubuntu phone, but by the time I’d saved up enough money to buy it, it had been discontinued.

        There’s also the Fairphone, which uses Android – I wonder if Ubuntu Touch would work on that…

        • mkey says:

          Maybe you’ll want to look into Pine phone (a linux smartphone) and there was another option, a Germany made modular smartphone/blackbarry, but I can’t recollect what is that product called. It was a pricier option, but apparently without leveraging slave labor.

          Also, you should look into LineageOS, the google free android that can provide many older phones an upgrade path after they have been looong left behind by the manufacturer.

        • robert.t says:

          Yep. Fairphone is among the supported devices. https://ubports.com/devices/promoted-devices

          While I use flavors of Ubuntu like Peppermint and Lite, I do have a slight suspicion of Ubuntu. (The CEO of Canonical, the company behind it, claims to have spent time as a space tourist participating in “experiments related to AIDS and genome research” on the ISS. That’s about as creepy/Masonic as you can get.)

          Nonetheless, Ubuntu will do for now, and I can always use Manjaro on both computer and Pine Phone. The phone version of the Pyra, if it ever comes around, runs on straight Debian and looks like an interesting all-use device.

          Most likely I’ll wait for the Librem 5. It will cost a fair bit up front but should last well. It’s worth knowing that you can have a Nexus 5 already loaded with Linux Ubuntu Touch right now for three hundred bucks. If I was phoning a lot that’s what I’d do, but being happily retired to the Australian scrub I’m in no rush.

          • mkey says:

            Yes, Pyra is the phone I was trying to recollect while replaying above to minnie. I think some of these models are cashing in on the “novelty” aspect. But also stands to reason that lower sales figures will entail a higher price.

  31. Roxanne says:

    I’ve got one.

    Anywhere that’s shamed in lamestream media for the virus that doesn’t exist (sars-cov2 or any others for that matter).

    We do the following:
    – call/email and give our support,
    – start using them for goods purchases,
    – recommend them to list on agorist.market,
    – introduce them to crypto
    – network them with the other switched-on stores so we can start building a counter-economic network.

  32. wolfgang says:

    fantastic, can’t wait for this series to unfold and inspire – let’s all participate wherever and however we can!

    A difficult but general solution…

    It may sound lame, general, wishy-washy but as a 50 year old it has served me very well and I harvest the fruits of it every day:

    Be a decent human being.

    Live by the principle of non-aggression. Be fair, honest and kind to yourself and others around you – starting with your family, no matter how propaganised they are.

    In trade/business: do not steal, defraud, cheat or try to ‘win’. Always be even-handed and remember you are dealing with someone who is, at the very least, your cousin.

    If you think this is too general, too wishy-washy etc then you have shown me that you’ve never really tried. It is the hardest path because it means every interaction requires a degree of mindfulness.

    Every action promotes an equal and opposite reaction. Please make sure your actions are ones that, once they return to you, will be a blessing.

      “…lame, general, wishy-washy….”

      No, quite the opposite, I believe this is the most powerful and universal solution possible.
      It boils down to values one have and live and act upon. Imagine if we would have such a values as society…many would probably say ultimate naivety….children of sick zeitgeist.

    I recommend a bit of an impractical solution, but one I believe is the only one which will free us. And that is simply free ourselves. Nobody is coming riding in to save us. All those who would have that as a part of what they do are grounded. They system people would try to use to seek redress are subverted. Governments are corrupted. Bureaucrats are bureaucrating with renewed vigor. Police are doing as they are told. Spokespeople are reading from scripts. And on and on. As Buckminster Fuller said, “you can’t change the system. All you can do is come up with something new that makes the old system obsolete”. And in a similar view is the take away from the old movie Wargames. Super computer/AI gets reality and gaming confused and set out to blow up the world. Kid challenges it to a game. Computer wins at strategies for winning. Kid realizes this and decides to play to a draw. Computer realizes that the only way to win is to not play. computer learns something. I’m thinking the same lesson is the one waiting for us.

    • fritz.s says:

      We can’t actually beat them. The notion of Beat, Win, Out think, Strategize, etc is their game. They’ve played it multi-generationally and it’s practically “who they are” by now. They live it, breathe it, think it, sleep it and all of their activities are devoted to it. They want it all, and we’ve always been the thorn in their sides with all this thinking for ourselves and refusing to be homogenized into a soupy conglomerate that does what it’s told. If we were to go “all in” to do what it takes to beat them, we would lose everything that makes us who we are. That’s their game. If we succeed at beating them at their own game, we will have become better at being them than they are. Is that what we want? Do we have the heart for that? I sure hope not.

      • fritz.s says:

        We have to do as Bucky suggests and create a game that makes their obsolete. And the game we’ve all been steered into IS their game. They’ve been herding us into it for centuries now. We’re sick of it. And we are outgrowing it. And they know that. So they are desperate to keep us “in”. If we win, it will be by discontinuing the play. And when I say win, I don’t mean in the sense of win/lose. I mean in the sense of Win/win. Is a new level of game that has a future. Win/lose games always have a shelf life. It’s over when someone has won it all. They’ve already won everything they thought there was to win. All the stuff. All the money. All the power, authority, property, etc. So now they want to shake the etcha-sketch and start all over again with a brand new game they can play which of course doesn’t require the vast majority of us. And those of us they plan to have remain will be hamstrung without anything like free will or access to any interesting aspects of play.

        • fritz.s says:

          When I came to this basic conclusion over a decade ago as I went about trying to answer the question “what is wrong with this world and how did that happen?”. What I found that existed outside of the diseased money based system with it’s tendency towards top down control, is the gift economy. Discovering this was a breath of fresh air and it put the wind back in my sails. It’s not a tit for tat exchange system. There is not possibility for greed. They is no large scale accumulation of spoils. There is no “he with the most toys at the end wins”. There is giving without the expectation of recompense. It’s a thing of beauty once you see how it functions. There are many examples I came across when I researched it in 2008-2009. Mostly started by women. And I found some areas of Africa where whole areas have always worked that way and haven’t never worked any other way and there is no word for money in their languages that is used to describe any part of their lives. Their motto, if there was such a thing could be “If everybody is looking out for the other guy, there has to be someone looking out for you.” There is no need to worry about “where is mine”. You give. You provide. Knowing that Universe will maintain a balance. you provide and you are provided for. In one African village, the game is to attain status by having given everything away. The notion of “rich” is founded upon what you have given to provide for others. It’s very different. But it is beautiful and very workable. It’s a false world that has forced us into a reality that demands we look out for ourselves or we’ll not be looked after. It necessitates selfishness. You HAVE to have resources or you can’t exist. That’s a false state of affairs. There is more than enough for everyone. And simply by participating in a system like this, we restore balance without even trying. Everybody is looking for how they can be of service. Everybody is looking for that niche they can fill that will help bring back that balance. Every imbalance gets attention without having to be assigned. Everything we need is already in place, except for awareness that another way of being can exist and can be more suitable to our very nature as humans.

          • fritz.s says:

            I know it looks impossible to make such a drastic shift in a reasonable enough timeframe to be of use in our current dilemma, but look at how much people shifted what they would be willing to accept over the last year, almost instantaneously. It could take centuries, or it could just be sucked into the vacuum left by having been left no options other than become some sort of chip to be traded by the elites. That things can change direction on a dime has had a wonderful precedent set this past year.

    These people found a solution. What is not in the article is that a crowd of Christians and Nationalists stood in front of the Little Brown Hen and wouldn’t let the health authorities close them down.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    In Florence, two restaurants — Little Brown Hen and Firehouse Restaurant — have re-opened for indoor dining despite the ban instituted by the governor for restaurants located within “extreme risk” counties.

    In an interview last week with Rick Dancer, host of “Get Real,” Little Brown Hen owner Stacey Brown Wilson said the decision was difficult but necessary.

    “It was either open and try to salvage my business and my employees’ livelihood or close the doors permanently,” said Wilson. “We are simply trying to survive. For those who presume I don’t care about my community, they couldn’t be more mistaken.”

    Wilson added that while the decision was “difficult” and that her actions are not intended to make a statement about the state or governor’s authority, she added that she is exercising a constitutional right to run a business.

    However, in her statement last Thursday, Brown responded to the decision to defy the state’s COVID-19 mandates.

    “If businesses reopen too early and, instead, create new spikes in COVID-19 cases, the actions of a few business owners could set entire communities back and keep them in the ‘extreme risk’ category for even longer,” said Brown, reminding businesses that OSHA and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) will enforce the orders through citations, fines and red-warning notices.

    Sometime this year I hope we can find a solution to organizing/navigating these comments. 🙂

    Not everyone has time to read through 60-70+ comments at a sitting and can remember where they left off reading when they return.

    Not everyone knows that part of the section they read, has had 20+ new great comments added to it!

    Not everyone keeps track of each discussion they have taken part in and remembers where to find them later (especially when they have scrolled off the top seven in the list).

    etc.

    • mkey says:

      I’m working on some browser side improvements to address at least some of these issue. For the time being I have implemented a rich text comment box and have corrected the character counter.

      I have also plans for managing the post order (I’d like to implement something similar to what UNZ review has) and maybe even a chat box.

      Here’s a preview https://i.imgur.com/pn1bClN.png

      • Fawlty Towers says:

        Great to hear mkey!
        I look forward to seeing how it can work here. 🙂
        For some reason the link you provided isn’t loading for me.

      • Fawlty Towers says:

        OK mkey I got the link to work now.
        It looks good for editing posts here in different formats.

        I checked out the UNZ review site and they have a really cool
        comment section setup!
        I hope we can achieve something similar to that here. 🙂

        • mkey says:

          Well, with the cat being out of the bag, I better not procrastinate 😉

        • mkey says:

          Here it is, Fawlty (and everyone else interested), I believe the script installation guide should be sufficiently detailed and self explanatory. I estimate it at a 5 minute read.

          https://github.com/mkey/CorbettReportUIEnhancer

          BTW this is an early release, just to get the ball moving. Valve says: release early, release often. And then they leave the fans waiting for Half Life 3 for 15 years.

          Feedback and suggestions welcome.

          • Cool stuff mkey!
            I see you have been quite busy on this. 🙂

            Thanks very much for this great work.
            It’s certainly a step in the right direction as far
            as improving the comments section organization is concerned.

            I think the Def and Own sort buttons will be the most helpful right now on the sorting front.
            And the text formatting tools will come in really handy.
            The character counting is a nice bonus for the more verbose here. 🙂

            I’m going to go back and play with some of the formatting tools for fun now!

            And I learned one more thing about the sorting feature now after I pressed ‘Reply’.

            I see that when you select a sort order, it only applies to the posts BEFORE you hit the Reply button. After that the sorting goes back to your setting in your profile.

            I also see that your formatting buttons disappear if you go back to re-edit your post in the 5 minute allowance.

            • mkey says:

              Thanks for the compliments and I hope you’ll find it as useful as I do. Did you find the installation guide clear enough?

              There are also plans for an “autosave feature” that would prevent losing any text entered by the user. Or that was snipped by you know who. Of course, everything would be saved in browser’s local storage. I still have to figure out a good strategy for saving the text, it gets more intricate more one thinks about it.

              I was also thinking about adding the option to somehow mark “comments since last visit”. Maybe even some rudimentary @mentions implementation where you could get a small, unobtrusive panel showing you recent updates.

              I would also like to implement a background post feature where you could post a comment without the page reloading, that would bring the site template up to date and in line with 2015 🙂

    James, I have a feeling I’ve been called out and I will reply.

    Regarding solutions being limited by definition you are probably right, still we don’t know for sure, there might be universal solutions for some particular problems, anarchism is good candidate.
    Most important we should not feel limited in pursuit, there is no way of knowing where limits actually are. If we won’t look for grand solutions we won’t find it, that’s obvious. On the other hand I agree action is very much needed.

    Beside childish not understanding reality, trolls, negativity and cynicism there is also critical thinking that might find serious flaws in some solutions and I believe it should be welcome.

    For example: project Open Source Ecology would be way better if it would use stuff from scrapyard. That wouldn’t be so easy, more skill, knowledge and improvisation is needed, but would result with self-reliance on a higher level.

      • mik says:

        Thank you.

        You might be right and my feeling is just totally subjective, that is of course also based on other experiences here and…..

        What bothers me most with solutions approach here is of philosophical nature.

        On one way is fine, a concrete, action approach. This resonates with many people, I guess with Americans in particular. Lets move away from passivity, lets feel our power….
        This is partial, fragmentary approach and all this pieces added together in a long term is supposed to solve us from todays predicament.
        Here I see analogy with scientific approach. Big problems are cut down to small chunks then they are solved, decoded and finally put together in some kind of additive way and the big problem is solved. While this approach brought substantial amount of knowledge, it’s failing miserably when it comes to biological systems, medicine…Even philosophy today is more concerned with smaller problems that could be “well defined”, like somehow the Truth will be one day revealed as a kind of summation of partial truths. I don’t think that is possible. Btw., as far as I know philosophy today don’t believe in Truth, they stopped the quest.
        Of course, I mean Truth metaphorically, I mean, something that is universal, something that cannot be subjectivized and something that could have impact on individual/society. I mean individual/society holistically, like ying/yang concept.
        One thing is certain, if we stop looking for it, if we stop the quest, we won’t find it.

        ufff, enough….
        You said relevant links

        Is something worse than Matrix possible?
        I’m not sure, but what Baudrillard is depicting definitely looks more perverse to me.
        Get ready, more philosophy 🙂

        What did Baudrillard think about The Matrix?

          As for me, in brief summation, any solution type action which works well for me personally at a present time, I’m game.
          I’m looking for things which better conditions within my sphere of influence.

          Having the ideas of other optional solutions is nice to have in my arsenal of ideas.

          I have a bucket of self-employment “business ideas”. It is a bucket of notes on paper of different business ideas which dates back more than two decades. Every time I had an idea, I jotted it down and threw it in the bucket. Occasionally, I go through them.

          In short, I’m just gonna use what works for me.
          And really, that is what anyone should do.

          • mik says:

            I don’t completely agree with your last paragraph, that to some extent comes from the notion “….better conditions within my sphere of influence.”

            You just cannot know what is the extent of your sphere of influence, it might be bigger than you think, but ok, that’s really not so important for everyday real life.

            From what you’ve written I would conclude that we differ in our orientation: you are inclined towards local/individual, I’m inclined toward global/society. Why is so? Since we both reached some age, I would say because that is who we are. Since I’m aware of myself I was inclined towards big, global, complex, totality… I’m sure that both approaches are needed. I doubt that you believe that global/society is inconsequential to your sphere of influence. Of course, I’m doing my best locally.

            I will consider a thing I find relevant for our discussion and very present today: division in society. Why?
            No doubt, division is fomented by those mf degenerates of humanity. But why are they so successful?
            I would say there is no “glue” that binds society. All civilizations had glue for society: religion, Confucian norms, nationalism, class….Btw, do you know that in ancient China merchants and soldiers were lower on social pyramid than artisans, interesting. And in general they had more peace than cradle of western civilization (that’s just observation).
            I don’t think that glue can be provided with bottom-up action, I think a kind of Story is needed, a Story James recently written about.

      You are in a panopticon on the internet…. the POINT is that you never know when you are being watched and “self censor” what you say thru fear.

      Remember that the allies let the Germans bomb the tar out of Coventry so as to not let it be known that they were reading most German ‘secret’ comm’s even if it took much money and effort… I suspect that the same is true of the internet today unless your using 1 time code pads.

    I think people will have to change their basic wants and desires. Psychological manipulation on a subconscious and unconscious level had paralyzed people, perhaps even myself.

    I find that I enjoy the convenience of the services that enslave us and that I like having material wealth.

    Someone posted a keen observation on another podcast comments section that they thought makeup for women would be valuable even if people were starving and I actually think that this may be true.

    On a basic level, human beings like to have comfort and the desire to be accepted and also to look good. What is needed is to go outside of the system and create our own. This new system must be fulfilling. Can we undo a lot of the subconscious and unconscious desires that we have that keeps the system in place?

    • Duck says:

      cu.h.j
      “…What is needed is to go outside of the system and create our own. This new system must be fulfilling….”

      No system that people make is fulfilling…they always degenerate because they are build on human desires rather then Gods will. Without God to focus on humans try to fill the empty space with politics, science and finally pleasure and then despair.
      You cant create a value system and expect it to matter to others…or even to yourself. Even the rulers know that- its why the Elites are going to ‘TRY’ to replace the old religions with one of their own creation that they control

  40. cu.h.j says:

    People will need to cultivate new skills in the new systems that we need to build to escape slavery. We will need food, water, shelter, clothing, and medicine. We also need some technology for communication and dissemination of information. Also, working with metal is also important. These kinds of things are sometimes better learned with some type of apprenticeship.

    I’m wondering if I would actually be able to provide anything of value in this new system? I can start to learn about herbal remedies now, but my training is in western medicine (and I do think it has value). We need doctors and surgeons and medical equipment. There are doctors who are against vaccine mandates and support informed consent and bodily autonomy. The medical-industrial complex via the medical boards does target doctors who write vaccine exemptions or question the safety of vaccines. They would be good people to collaborate with.

      There is a lot to be said on the value of certification and training in western medicine. In my North Texas area, one “nurse” has a small office and administers IV Therapies (Ozone, Nutrients, Vit C, Glutathione, etc.) There is a pretty good profit margin to it. Also, many of these type of medical operations also sell a line of supplements at the office, which can add to the profits.

      ANECDOTE – Covid cases I’ve run into
      cu.h.j, I make note of your valuable comment input, especially regarding your field of expertise. (e.g. Covid cases)
      https://www.corbettreport.com/interview-1609-james-corbett-on-resisting-the-great-reset/#comment-100536

      I have been running into a fair number of folks who likely have had Covid (per their descriptive symptoms), or perhaps had some other respiratory illness (per their description).
      One recent “event” is one of my four younger brothers (brother #3) and his family who may have Covid. Following his text, I sent a very brief note & set of links to all my brothers which included a blurb about Ivermectin & Hydroxychloroquine, WWW stopcovidcold.com/ , and Mercola’s Nebulizer protocol with very diluted hydrogen peroxide.

      Brother #3 and I end up talking on the phone. My son’s wife’s brother-in-law is a Dr. of Chiropractic & natural healing, but he got his nurse’s certification so he could better serve his patients with conventional medicine protocols. He does tele-medicine and can prescribe Ivermectin.
      So, I hooked my brother up with this Doctor, because he wanted some Ivermectin.

      My point here is that without the conventional western medicine certification and training, the Doctor would have been technically unable to provide the Ivermectin.

      I once had a M.D. Doctor who practiced natural health. She worked out of her home, and I enjoyed it. However, the neighbors complained and city codes gave her grief. She has since moved to Sante Fe, (Pilato’s stomping grounds), to retire.

  41. Thanks for the compliments and I hope you’ll find it as useful as I do. Did you find the installation guide clear enough?

    Yes the install guide was excellent, very clear!

    I’m seeing little quirks (as I use this) that are part and parcel with the change.
    For example with the old editing box (which is now dinosaur age) you could grab its bottom right corner to enlarge/lengthen the box.

    With your next editing box that bottom right corner ‘grabber’ is gone.
    You need to manually add extra lines (Enter key) to lengthen the box.

    I was also thinking about adding the option to somehow mark “comments since last visit”. Maybe even some rudimentary @mentions implementation where you could get a small, unobtrusive panel showing you recent updates.

    I like this new quote feature, really cool! It’s much more sophisticated than using italics or
    ” ” marks.

    A ‘comments since last visit’ would be a really nice touch to have. Something that I had hinted at before.

    Keep up the great work!

    Well as I make new posts I continue to learn more things about your editing box features.
    I saw that after I clicked Save/Post the quote feature kind of disappeared!

    The quote block was gone, and replaced simply by an indentation of the quoted section.

    So basically some of the neat things you see while editing disappear after you make the post.

    • mkey says:

      Yes, I have noticed that resize thing, as well. The box height adapts automatically to the contents. I tried to force it to open up, but that didn’t work well. I’ll have to see if there’s maybe a setting for it.

      Another quirk, that is a limitation, if you use blockquote on several newline separated lines, in the preview window it’s going to put each line in a blockquote of its own. Since that looked awful when submitted as a comment, I’m stripping the extra blockquote tags in the background, but it’s left in the preview window.

      Also, for the time being, the edit window reverts to the old school text box.
