    I have a question for James.

    Have you heard anything about the pope being a CIA plant?

    He seems to be getting more attention and affection than any if the other popes that have come before him. When was the last time that a sitting president of the US went down to the airport to meat someone on the tarmac?

    Just wondering –

    Hi James,

    I’ve been pondering about this philosophical question for a while now. Although I tend to agree with the concept of decentralization of power and voluntarism, I have to wonder at which point will individual physical strength become the defining point in authority. Are we, as a species, ready to to be ruled by individual morality? It seems to me that the less physically strong individuals (including women) do benefit from having certain rules enforced by a community. Even if the so-called enforcement is merely being shunned.

    Your (and anyone’s) thoughts?

  3. candideschmyles says:

    Before I ever asked my question on the plight of Julian Assange I did of course enter his name and “wikileaks” into the search function of this site. It produced zero returns. So I was kind of expecting a negative opinion of both man and organisation. However I was really surprised by the incomprehensible and unqualified assertions you have made. I have to ask have you ever actually been on the wikileaks site? To cite one of the few examples of their published files that ever got reported by msm I get the impression your knowledge of wikileaks is second hand. And to mock the “cave man” who has been a prisoner for three years and still imply he is an agent is truly beneath you James. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    • WannabePhilosopher says:

      Is Snowden really the hero that the MSM wants us to believe he is too?

      • candideschmyles says:

        I don’t trust Snowden at all. Or Greenwald, Poitras and the MSM publications they work for. I may even be wrong about wikileaks. But I firmly believe Assange believes in what he does and does so with impeccable integrity.

        • WannabePhilosopher says:

          That’s the kind of humility I like. I may be completely wrong on my views as well. To any individuals reading this, just know you should judge for yourself.

    • n2abstract says:

      I remember (and my memory isn’t really that great) that one of the factors that Assange went into hiding was because of that video of the Apache attack helicopter shooting at a group of journalists, then some samaritan showed up and was in turn attacked to the pilots’ attitude of indifference. I believe the video was later identified as released by Bradley Manning (?)

      At any rate, after that time the US gov. started clamping down (further) on whistleblowers. So my question is: did the US gov. know about the video and later leaks that was about to be released by Wikileaks? If they did then by letting Assange/Manning go through with the leaks they probably figured they could use that excuse to pass more laws to further restrict the internet. That could make Assange not quite a “hero” but more a dupe. Does he have some kind of history with US intelligence I wonder?

    • Eric says:

      In the context of a rational debate, to tell someone that they should be ashamed of themselves seems quite inappropriate. If you ask a question, you run the risk of getting an answer you don’t like. You’re question was not even very specific…. “do you have any comments…?” James gave you his comments, and I don’t think he said anything that was untruthful or mean spirited.

      • candideschmyles says:

        If you don’t think mocking a fellow journalist who has been under seige in a single room of an Embassy for over three years by saying he looks like a caveman, and Assange does look like someone slightly deranged by cabin fever of late, then you have a different moral compass to me.

    • Mark K. P. says:

      Assange + Wikileaks as a whole are a CIA limited hangout.
      This doesn’t mean they don’t attract good people of good will. It’s half their purpose to dupe and include good folks. This is psy ops, in the best Venetian traditions, even if the CIA are shit at it, compared to the European filth with their longer traditions in evil.
      Anyhow there are four keys to tagging fakes like Assange ;
      — they regurgitate old, known leaks as though new + sensational
      — they never expose any current and real CIA, MI6, Mossad ops
      — they get lots of coverage on mainstream media, usually positive (though fame and the attendant public voice is the main aim)
      — they support the mainstream version of 9/11, and/or ridicule, oppose real research on the topic.

      Even two matches here identifies a fake whistleblower. Assange is all four. Compared to that his (hilarious) background in a Queensland circus family is immaterial. But still entertaining enough. He’s certainly no journalist and never was.

      • candideschmyles says:

        Exactly what evidence do you have for such an assertion that “Assange and Wikileaks as a whole are a limited CIA hangout”?
        Over the past week I have looked hard at Assange and Wikileaks and their associations. There is not the flimsiest scrap of evidence I have been able to find of any inconsistency in Julian’s life that does not support and justify who he is today and how he got to where he is. His love of programming was clearly influenced by the ethics of being raised as the son of a colourful nomadic hippy of a mum. And throughout his hacking and publishing in his earlier years we can see the development of Wikileaks as a virtual inevitability. His concerns with encryption, privacy and government spying technology started before any of us, I expect, had even really considered the questions. And all of his efforts in hacking and programming can very clearly be seen to support the idea that this is a man who is on a mission to (a) create safe havens from the prying eyes of state security and (b) to publish the unredacted documents of State and its vassals.
        Wikileaks itself has now published some 10 million documents. Not opinion, speculation or supposition but hard documents. Do you really think the US is happy about that? Are you really suggesting this is actually what they want? Because that is an extraordinary assumption to reach it requires extraordinary evidence to support it. And I have seen none.
        The closest I can come to casting and kind of shadow on Julian or Wikileaks is Edward Snowden, who I am in agreement with James is a highly dubious player, yet the case against him is as yet circumstantial and I remember that. But, as I have posited elsewhere, to me it seems far more likely that Wikileaks and Assange were at least in part an aspect of Snowdens mission statement, if indeed he has one. Let’s face it Snowden relied on the logistical support of Wikileaks to flee Hong Kong and flee onwards to Russia. Julians girlfriend, Sarah Harrison, after meeting him in Hong Kong spent several months with him in Moscow. You can look at that two ways depending on whether you believe Wikileaks to be a CIA front or what it says it is. I have genuinely looked for a flaw or inconsistency in Wikileaks and I can’t find one. So I give it the benefit of the doubt and entertain the idea that Wikileaks was actually a target.
        I have to rely on my own sense of probability which since I am human is deeply flawed and subject to many biases. Snowden, by using mainstream publications like the Guardian and The New York Times, has more or less killed the perception of Wikileaks as the go to place for secrets. And indeed this is borne out by the virtual boycott of Wikileaks sourced documents in the MSM and more importantly in academic debate on these issues. In a very real sense Snowden has eclipsed Wikileaks, despite wikileaks continuing to publish. If anyone has been “snowjobbed” it is Wikileaks. Despite this Assange continues his support of Snowden because Snowden has undeniably released many important documents and he, like us, has nothing but circumstantial evidence not to believe he is who he says he is. Even though Snowden has even eclipsed him personally as the most prominent fugitive from the US, a coup in its own right.
        If James has no respect for Julian Assange, the life he has led and his pivotal role in creating one of the most important resources for truth seekers anywhere, then he should justify that with facts, not insults.

  4. setatliberty says:

    James, Did you hear Olav’s question? I mean, did you HEAR him? I know you responded to the words, but did you hear him? Olav, like many others is a truth seeker. he, like myself and many others have been brave enough to put our worldviews on the alter of truth and set it on fire to find that many of the things that we thought were true, were in fact, not true. So we dig. We want to see the whole picture. We want to prepare against the imminent doom that is coming. Your response to his question was much more of a fairytale optimistic response than something that truly faces reality. I have said for years (tongue in cheek) that an optimist is merely a pessimist that refuses to face reality.

    Apparently you have either never read the Authorized King James Bible, or you simply choose to not believe the prophecies that are written therein. This united global oligarchy was prophesied of in Daniel chapters 7-12 and is also written in the book of Revelation. As well as many other various epistles and the gospels themselves. Thousands of years ago, these things were, in fact, written. That, in and of itself, is evidence that no mortal man was in charge of these words, but as King David declared “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

    My response to Olav is: Olav, this life is very short and there is a much greater trouble coming than any man could possibly prepare to endure though. More than half of the population will be killed through murder and plagues. When this life is over, eternity begins and every man will be judged righteously. Escape the damnation through prayer and repentance unto the Lord. He will hear the cry of the humble, but will resist the proud. Jesus Christ the Messiah came to die on your behalf. When He returns, it will be to destroy the sinners out of the earth. Plead for mercy, seek the Lord, read His Word and pray. Hold on, for the weeping will endure but for a moment. The hope that we have is not in this life, nor in the ability of mankind. The end of all things is at hand and a new era will be ushered in. An era where the rule of law will be good for the obedient and evil for the rebellious. Just as everything was written, so shall it come to pass. Heaven and earth will pass away, but the Words of the Lord endure forever.

    • der says:

      As advocates of freedom, we defend your right to preach, and your right to believe in whatever you chose. But really, do you really think you need to be preaching Christianity on this website? Seems a highly inappropriate forum for that.
      I’m being polite. Hope you noticed, James.

  5. Beau Boeye says:

    Towards the end of the podcast, the question regarding health, I would like to point your viewers in the direction of the Weston A. Price Foundation—a foundation co-founded by Sally Fallon Morrell. Dr. Weston A Price, a dentist, traveled the world during the early 20th century documenting a variety of traditional cultures and what they ate before the adoption of a Western diet and the impacts this had on the developing youth; the research is astounding. With the works of both Dr. Price and Dr. Mary G Enig, Sally connects the dots and exposes the fraud promoted by the American Heart Association, the FDA, and congress; during the mid 20th century these groups demonized cholesterol and saturated fat to, not only promote the cooking oil industry, but to also change the eating habits of the American people; the decrease of healthy fats such as butter, lard, and animal fats and the increase of grain consumption, which is reflected when the original food pyramid is released in 1992 – this information has been presented in her Oiling of America lecture which can be found on YouTube. I highly suggest this content to your viewers.

    I know this is not a direct answer to the viewer’s question for a healthy news outlet, but this resource will help direct inquisitive minds in, what I believe to be, the right direction. Another suggestion is to read food labels… cook all your own meals from raw materials… look into the necessary vitamins and minerals needed by the human body and learn how to balance your meals around these figures… learn your body’s language and listen to its needs (watch for inflammation responses, acne breakouts, headaches, gas/bloating, bad breathe, etc)… monitor your stools and their frequencies… stay hydrated… Gnothi seauton

    So much about life is based around pattern recognition; when you start to listen and understand your body’s rhythm, you can start to rely less on the opinions of others because you know what works for yourself. We’re all unique individuals anyway (though, there are principles we should all strive to live by).

    • I agree with Beau Boeye and the Price Foundation recommendation. The bottom line, as I have advocated to my kids, is to be a student of yourself. You are not like others, including close family. Eat and do what is right for you and don’t live by an accredited formula.

      Personally, after a mild heart attack, I got totally off of refined sugar, a difficult task, and now eat a high fat diet, again against professional advice. At just shy of 60 I take frequent five mile (8 KM for the rational world) walks without fatigue. But what has worked for me may not for you.

      You can find so many stories why a vegan or paleo diet has helped a person while being perceived as opposite. However they have a fundamental similarity, they avoid processed foods and refined sugar.

      A final point, your doctor will give you a pill that will alleviate a symptom in minutes, but a change in diet may cure the problem, but it takes time, perhaps months. Patience is required, and again be a student of yourself!

    • Andrew says:

      I second the Weston Price Foundation as a sound source for health advice. Another site with good advice is Kevin Geary’s http://rebootedbody.com/

    • guy says:

      I vouch for the “Oiling of America” YouTube episode as well. Please DO watch.

      You will not be disappointed. (Although it may heighten your disgust of American Corporate Dysfunction and it’s contempt for public health and wellbeing.)

    • Vonmallyon says:

      I also agree with the Weston Price foundation recommendation. The Nourishing Traditions cookbook by Sally Fallon is a great resource for cooking according to his research using fermentation, soaking of grains and legumes, and using nutrient dense foods such as animal fats and organ meats.
      Another good resource for learning about supplementation is http://fixyourgut.com/.
      It’s a good, relatively unbiased review of various topics and research.

  6. phreedomphile says:

    Hi James,

    You mentioned geophysicist L. King Hubbert as the peak oil theorist. If you do an expanded podcast on the issue of energy scarcity you might want to also cover Hubbert’s role as one of the founders of the 1930s Technocracy movement, resembling the modern day version with the goal of a centrally controlled energy rationed economy.

    Also, please consider integrating Smart Grid and Smart Cities into your discussion if possible as it all seems to tie together back to the old Technocracy movement and the later iteration Brzezinki’s “Technotronic Era”. Smart Grid and Smart Cities, with their Agenda 21 language, are being planned out not only in the west, particularly Europe, but also in India (~100 Smart Cities in the works), China, and Russia. Last year it was reported China outspent the US on Smart Grid. As well, Russia is adopting Smart Grid technology having formed a formal partnership with the US in 2012 initiated in 2011 by “USEA, USAID’s implementing partner for the Russian/American Partnership Initiative, a program of the Obama-Medvedev Bilateral Presidential Commission.”

    There are a lot of interesting characters and ambitious programs with sprawling tentacles to tackle. If you could use some assistance, this meme of energy scarcity and its relevance to the NWO might be a good open source Corbett community project.

    Finally, an alternative explanation for the drop in oil prices was a perceived need by TPTB to lighten the inflation toll on the economy to keep the working and middle classes afloat. Higher energy prices directly feed into higher consumer prices. It appeared that the drop in prices generally coincided with aggressive efforts to raise the minimum wage. QE and debasement balancing acts?

    As always, thanks for all you do!

    Hello, James!

    We grow a lot of our own food here in the desert of British Columbia, Canada. I won’t go into a lot of detail to make you cringe with envy about the amazing harvest time we are enjoying right now, but you asked for garden suggestions for this time of year so here a few. Warm weather not required.

    Although in September we don’t usually start anything in the garden, this is the time that we bring in some of the tasty wild things into a little window box in the kitchen. You don’t really need soil, water with just the dirt that has come in on the roots will do fine. Dandelion, which I hope you have in Japan, does really well, giving a few new green leaves per root every day all winter. You can just bring manageable sized pieces (their roots can be long), it doesn’t seem to mind having its roots cut, and it will be happy not to be outside in those cold months. Super nutritious and not really bitter if you pick the small leaves. Probably some of the Asian roots would do nicely, as well. Also, try some of those things that tend to sprout in the fridge after you’ve cut into them, and see what happens. This type of gardening is on a small scale, and can be done anytime, but gives you so much at a time when greens are hard to come by (or buy). A sunny window is best, but a light will help if you don’t have that. be sure to check that the leaves are fine to eat, and be adventurous!

    Also we really get into growing sprouts from a lot of our own seeds from plants we have let go to seed in the garden (kale, broccoli, onion, carrot…), as well as alfalfa seed we buy. Just a spoonful will supply you with a gallon jar of sprouts on a weekly basis. All you have to do is rinse them twice a day, and keep them fluffed up once in a while as they get bigger so they don’t start to rot. Be light fingered, as they are delicate.

    Some wild green leaves added to the sprouts, along with a nice bowl of brown rice–you can be sure that you will be healthy during the winter with daily doses of living greens. And all from the kitchen!

    Take heart! You don’t have to spend a lot of time growing food this time of year. And we do need you to keep on being our best source of news and ideas in this crazy world!

    Thanks James. I hope this helps.

  8. spoonful says:

    Hi James – just wanted to add my two cents regarding private property – in the U.S. tradition, the right to private property is equated with the right to exclude others from such property. As recognized in the first edition of the American Law Institute’s Restatement of the Law of Property:
    Section 7 Possessory Interests in Land
    A possessory interest in land exists in a person who has (a) a physical relation to the land of a kind which gives a certain degree of physical control over the land, and an intent so to exercise such control as to exclude other members of society in general from any present occupation of the land.

    • n2abstract says:

      Along the same line about property (land) that Spoonful mentioned, I recently saw this interview on SGTreport.com and couldn’t help wondering if we really own property in America:

      https://youtu.be/4EociRmeDZw

      It seems that we deal with everything through our legal fiction, and that if the United States is now run as a corporation then who owns the land? The government? From Federal to State to City almost all are incorporated. So when we live in an incorporated city does that mean that individuals are just renters, someone living on someone else incorporated land? Is this the reason that makes it possible for the US government to collect taxes since the individual is now “contracted” through his/her legal fiction? In addition, if the US is a corporation then what does it mean when an individual is punished with capital punishment? So at the top, is a corporation our overlord?

  9. greenpeacefarmer36 says:

    James,
    Climate will dictate what you can grow outdoors this year. I think you would be surprized how little research it would take to determine your best growing options. Try to identify any micro climates in your yard. Maybe along the foundation of your home on the south side you could get some surprizing growth all winter. Chickens can be an incredible food resource. They could prepare the garden plot that you expect to use next spring. If you get a truckload of mulch and build a chicken pen around it with the right amount of water it could produce enough heat to boom with various bugs that the chickes would eat… I belive firmly in notill gardening. All the tillage that needs done can be done by the chickens. Look into mulch. Then pick a mycelium that will break down your mulch into fertalizer. Add chickens as soon as you can. Start now for next spring. Above all find out what wild edibles are native to your area and enjoy.

    For growing knowledge see http://amazingcarbon.com/ the pdf articles and http://www.aglabs.com

    For nutrition my blog where I collect and consider information http://gutwise.com and Mike Adams (health ranger) http://www.naturalnews.com/

    Knowing that the earth (soil), as with humans (gut), is self healing, depends that we understand how to maintain soil and gut health so disease does not result.

    The fear of on going ignorance must now become our real fear if we need a fear to motivate us.

  11. BuddhaForce says:

    James thanks for answering my question. I really did not mean for it to be rhetorical, it was just worded poorly. The intent was to ask if these trends and fads are pushed along by the power structure and I’m glad you picked up on that!

    On Mike’s question about responses to the “too many people involved in the conspiracy to keep it under wraps, so therefore there wasn’t a conspiracy” BS answer often trotted out by those who refuse to question the official narrative of these events:

    This argument is a CIA Psychological Warfare technique used to stifle investigation and/or deflect suspicion from Government and Intelligence Agencies, as outlined in CIA Document #1035-960, Section 4c.

    https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.html?docId=49975#relPageId=2

    It was prescribed to combat criticism of the Warren Commission Report.

  12. Drazen says:

    Regarding Health and Well Being sources of information I would highly recommend,

    Mark’s Daily Apple – http://www.marksdailyapple.com/
    Dr. Joseph Mercola – http://www.mercola.com/

    I have adopted a primal/paleo lifestyle for the past 6 years and it has been the best health decision I have ever made. Improvements in health and well being have been extraordinary and I considered myself to have been healthy before I changed.

    At the very least consider eliminating or severely limiting sugars and grains from your diet for a period of 4 weeks to observe the changes in health.

  13. mammique says:

    We do not need to move to another country to put our families safe. The first paradigm is not one country v.s. another country, but rural v.s. urban area. The country comes second. But the best is not to move but to have several countries to find refuge into, preferably countries where the weather is suitable for all year long crops (tropical).

    For example I live in France, and I’m starting to build an permaculture, voluntarist & p2p economy based village in Thailand with friends. Some wants to stay there for holidays, some for winter, others all year long. No need to be an angst hardcore survivalist. It can be done part time, fun, healthy, teaching, opened to the outside world (e.g. welcoming people who want to learn in a resort/guesthouse way) and if anything goes wrong it can be turned into a real life backup plan. We never know how things can turn, nor when, nor where, maybe the country you run away from will be the one place which will be spared? Better not to put all eggs in the same basket.

    If one of you is interested, being a regular Corbett Report member, non trollish, of good will, feel free to email me (this same nickname @garbure.org).

    Talking about solutions, I’m discovering the work of Mark Passio, his name seems to pop up recently here and there, I just see now that @bubromer mentioned him in the last #QFC comments. His Natural Law seminar series is an absolute must watch for whoever sincerely wish to bring any efficient change in this world. Certainly the most empowering and crucial information I’ve seen so far on the Internet. This is were to start, no shortcut.

    Thanks again James for your work!

  14. EYEisBloke says:

    Not entirely familiar with Japanese climate but reckon spinach would be a good option. Also get chickens, they’re great fun.

    Hi James,
    Herbs are very easy to grow and can have many health benefits. http://www.amazon.com/20-000-Secrets-Tea-Effective/dp/0440235294/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1443568152&sr=8-2&keywords=tea+book

    This book is a great starting point for learning the power of herbs.

  17. adrian.manolescul says:

    takling about solutions – If you have time I suggest switching from Premiere to Blender, for a friendy open source alternative which has a few things more to add. (and a few less). Blender Velvets is a good plug-in and Cinelerra is a good opition as well. New generation hopefully will not pass through Adobe products and go straight for the goodies.

    • Corbett says:

      Thank you for the suggestion. Yes, I am aware of Blender but have never used it. I will absolutely give it a try. I actually prefer GIMP to PhotoShop so it would be great to have an open source editor as well.

    • mammique says:

      Adrian tu m’as doublé ! :-p https://twitter.com/mammique/status/648788678622453760

      Blender is probably a better advise, you’re right. But Cinelerra… You know I love it, it’s my default editing software since more than 15 years, but it would be a torture for James coming from Final Cut…

    • adrian.manolescul says:

      Yes, torture it might be. I do go to Premiere from time to time to make really quick stuff. Some drawbacks can happen with the change, but I think the near future is looking bright in overcoming the small limitations. The change is slowly but surely.

  18. Steebs says:

    QFC

    Would you go on Joe Rogan Experience?

    • anacardo01 says:

      Joe Rogan is one of the pre-eminent limited hangout artists working today; there’s no chance at all he’d give somebody like Our Man Jim a mike.

  19. Octium says:

    Regarding what can be planted at this time of Year,

    I like Chris Hutchinson’s website http://www.gardenate.com

    The nice thing about his site is that you can subscribe to a free weekly email reminder that contains a list of what can be planted in your own climate region for the next couple of months.

    The regular reminders are handy if you have been procrastinating, sick or just too busy to get out in the garden, as there is usually always something you can plant now.

    Unfortunately the website does not include countries like Japan in it’s list, however it should be possible to find a similar climate region to yours from the list of other Northern Hemisphere locations.

    I have discovered that autumn is often a good time to start planting anyhow. In the past I made the mistake of only getting out in the garden in spring when the weather turned nice (Feels good to be outside then) only to discover later in summer that I did not have enough water for my plants as things got drier. I’m limited to tank water as fortunately I am not connected to the toxic statist fluoridated feed!

    Water is not a problem for me in the winter or early spring however.

    Iodine.

    Hi James,

    Regarding comments on iodine: 1) Iodine is grossly misunderstood in today’s context of big pharma, 2) Iodine is NOT a poison, but a very necessary nutrient for human health, 3) Unless you have one of several MAJOR medical maladies, it is very, very, very hard to “overdose” on iodine, 4) Iodine is even more important for women’s health than men’s as women’s breast tissues require higher quantities for health, 5) Iodine USED to be added to things like bread, but now bromine and bromides have been substituted; they are poisons, 6) Iodine drives out poisons like bromine, bromides, fluorine, fluorides, chlorine buildup in human tissues (all members of the halogen family in the periodic table of elements).

    Iodine is not patentable. It used to be medicine’s wonder drug.

    Our toxic environment is LOADED with halogen toxins like chlorine, bromine, bromides, fluorine etc. It’s in our foodstuffs, in our water, in our furnishings. Bromides abound in fabrics and plastics from new car interiors to furniture to baby car seats.

    I read a book by Lynne Farrow called “The Iodine Crisis.” First from the library, then I bought a copy which I subsequently gave away. Not one to just dump any remedy down my throat, I have FULLY vetted these things for myself. And I highly recommend others do the same.

    Lynne’s book is highly readable, as entertaining as it is informative. My hat is off to her.

    You can check out Lynne’s website here: http://www.breastcancerchoices.org/

    James,

    More ideas on easy stuff to grow inside. Try sprouts! You can sprout just about anything and they are super healthy. Radish sprouts, mung bean sprouts, broccoli sprouts, alfalfa sprouts, garbanzo beans.

    Any time of year, all year.

    Something else maybe fun is mushrooms. Ixquick search: “mushroom kit” and you will find shiitake to oyster. You will have to make sure they can ship to Japan, however.

      Almost forgot. Sunflower seed sprouts are super cool.

      Excellent nutty taste and firm texture. Just use regular, raw sunflower seeds. Unhulled can be a bit of a pain; the raw, hulled ones work just fine.

      MMM,mmmm — good!

    Hi James,

    I have a question for your next QFC.

    Given the fact that you disseminate information that powerful individuals no doubt would prefer remain occulted, have you ever had a personal brush with the “deep state”? Are you at all concerned that you or your family may face reprisals as a result of your work?

    Not to stoke any paranoia, but given the gravity of some of the topics you broach this question has no doubt crossed your mind.

    Apologies if you’ve already discussed this previously.

    Stay safe

    Hi James,
    First of all, thank you for all you do and all the thought and research that entails. It has been very enlightening to me so far as a new subscriber.

    As for growing vegetables, I live over here in Korea and although it’s late we just planted radish and spinach seeds. If you planted now you could still expect a harvest. (the ideal time would be late August) Our radish here is similar to your daikon, I think.

    Gardening.

    Some good ideas already.

    On a windowsill, ‘cut and come again’ lettuce and also try ‘microgreens’ beetroot and chard that you eat when they’re just a few weeks old.

    Thank you James for the clarification about the Middle East oil situation. I did watch Episode 191 as you suggested. Really looking forward to what you’ll be telling us about it later, as you mentioned.

    The term “fossil fuels” seems to me to be a major part of the peak oil myth, given that there had to be a finite number of fossils available to become oil.

    I thought that part of answering the question “how to prepare for what’s coming” is to see what’s being worked out for the future in the more or less elite universities around the world. Here’s one example. yea, I’m harping on smart cities again:

    https://www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/casa/pdf/paper188

    “Smart People: social and human capital”…

    (guess it’s better than “human chattel”…)

    “ETHICAL ISSUES:

    Because our projects deal with developing new data systems from the ground up, systems that
    involve sensing individual behaviours and merging these with secondary data sets constructed
    at an equivalent level, there are major privacy concerns. As we merge dierent data sets from
    dierent sources to produce integrated and coupled systems, there are clear issues of copyright
    and IPR which will have to be addressed. Much of our work on integrated databases will tackle
    these issues.
    In terms of our focus on involving a large array of groups and citizens in planning the smart
    city of the future, we will need to take account of what information is accessible to whom and
    this becomes crucial when such information is available at a ne spatial scale where individuals
    can be identied. We will draw on an extensive knowledge base about how condentiality can
    be assured in the construction of such data systems and their use and access. We will engage
    with the open data agenda being pursued by national and city government and NGOs and
    ensure that our research is entirely consistent with these developments.”

    QFC

    Hi James,
    Short quick question on central banking, are you aware if Anonymous or any other hacker group have targeted the federal reserve, ECB or probably preferably the BIS and leaked files. Or is it just fantasy that we would find some ‘silver bullet’ file that name names and we can show to everyone not in the know that the system is rigged.

    Hi from a new member (long-time parasite)

    I just wanted to make a comment which I suppose has implicit questions…

    To coin a phrase: A conspiracy of evidence is not evidence of conspiracy.

    That is, just because certain pieces fit together does not mean there is necessarily an overall pattern to be discovered.

    I say this because the reason I read & listen to so much of James’ work is that he generally avoids firm conclusions apart from where many pieces seem to fit together to form an obvious pattern.

    So, my point is, please continue to do this and please be on constant guard against any leaps of faith or reasoning.

    I read & listen to many sources of information for my own understanding of our world and one thing I’m constantly struck by is the fact that I will never know the whole truth about subjects. Even people very close to the source may have such compartmentalised information that they will never know the whole truth, so how could I?

    And so, I am accustomed to being in a state of ‘not-knowing’ and constantly on the look out for well-sourced facts and well-disguised diversions and dead ends. I find James’ work to also be comfortable with the state of ‘not-knowing’ and my support and interest will subsist as long as that attitude prevails.

    QFC
    The refugee crisis in Europe seems orchestrated, as it suddenly gained momentum. The be welcome strategy of Angela Merkel seems very suspicious, refugees have never been welcomed this way, on the contrary. But where is “proof” of this orchestration, aside from Isis being funded by US, and IMF (Christine Lagarde) foreboding all the problems that are now coming into existence?
    Thanks James, I highly appreciate your work!

    QFC
    Your remark in response to the flyers thrown at the NSA base that it concerns at least real people and no robots brings up the issue of human cloning. We know of Dolly the cloned sheep, but there are rumors regarding human cloning which would not be surprising at all since the military complex is years ahead in their technology as to what MSM releases. Apparently Hillary Clinton admitted she is a clone…

    According to the ruiner, raised inside illuminaty mind control programs, nowadays clones are used which leave the need for heavily mind controlled MKUltra people useless

    QFC
    I seem to be on the go today :-).
    In regard to TTP threatening the liberties of Internet, is there any alternitave available that could serve as an independent source of exchanging information?
    Thanks again James!

    Hi James
    With all this media coverage of the 100’s of thousands of refugees fleeing the Middle East through Turkey to Northern European countries, I have never seen anyone ask the question “why aren’t they headed for the other arab states?”, like Saudi Arabia, Qatar,the UAE. You would think that they would have more in common with their arab brethren than German christians.
    We have seen that Turkey is involved in “encouraging/ expediting” this exodus to Europe – are they doing this just to blackmail the EU into various concessions? Visa free travel for Turks, resumption of talks on EU membership and… lots of lovely Euros. Or is there another agenda?
    Thanks James ..keep up the good work!

    #QFC
    First off I am acutely aware that I’m leaving a question on a site whose architecture and content is orchestrated by you and as such I offer you my congratulations on the whole set up. Great work.

    Moving on. The following are hypothetical and philosophical questions one of which is along similar lines as a question earlier on in this thread.

    Suppose for a moment that official Amerika, the masters of the world, the elite and the mindless drones who prop them up by blindly following their orders were to disappear overnight. What would happen then?

    In my mind their would be a power vacuum scenario which would lead to turmoil and the rising of new powers, just as cynical as those they replace, just because human beings arguably have a distaste for what they perceive to be a void in hierarchy.

    This brings me to my question: are we as a species fundamentally at need of power moguls, overt or covert, out of millennia of conditioning or even intrinsically? Are we not evolved enough yet to deal with a void in hierarchy, or any kind of void, which would place the onus on us as, one hopes, morally minded human beings using the agency of free will within the confines of natural law?

    In the same vein, does Natural Law – whose proponents tend to be anarchists – mean the strong eating the weak, as someone has said, rather than order and harmony as said anarchists claim Natural Law represents?

    Ultimately is it not the purpose of the CorbettReport and your work generally to offer positive pathways “off the beaten track” which can, painfully but fruitfully, co-exist alongside the immoral power set up now known as “the new world order”?

    You have warned against the dangers of revolution many times so I believe a turn around in the structure of power is not on your list of priorities. But the question remains: how can we eliminate or even should we eliminate the need for power or is it a case of people power counteracting the worst of elite power?

    Surely the CorbettReport is about reclaiming some of the power that has been taken from us for so long so that there is a greater balance of power, power as a fundament however remaining intrinsic to human society which cannot be done away with (or do you disagree on this point?).

    I would like to hear your thoughts on any of these issues if and when you have the time and inclination.
