'I am the Cult - Death' be my name'

Belief is a weapon; your enemy and, cause of the
Death of your Soul

Empires - governments carry the seed for their own destruction as  mankind carries the seed for its own longevity

"But this is slavery, not to speak one’s thought." Euripides - (480-406 B.C.)
"THOUGHT is derivied from thinking.

"We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children."

Jimmy Carter, Nobel Lecture, December 10, 2002

“Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors
and acclaim the bully as hero.”

Lawrence Ferlinghetti, New Poems, City Lights

"All changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born."

W. B. Yeats, Easter 1916

Are we not exceptional?

Are you not entertained?

Gold and silver rallied higher today out of their coiling patterns, as the war in the Mideast intensified. 

Stocks finished weakly again, grappling with the risks of the fog of war.

VIX rose.

The Dollar chopped sideways finishing largely unchanged.

And so it begins again.

Have a pleasant weekend.

Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Self-Interest Without Morals - Option Expiration


"It is no exaggeration to say that since the 1980s, much of the global financial sector has become criminalised, creating an industry culture that tolerates or even encourages systematic fraud.   The behaviour that caused the mortgage bubble and financial crisis of 2008 was a natural outcome and continuation of this pattern, rather than some kind of economic accident.

This behaviour is criminal.  We are talking about deliberate concealment of financial transactions that aided terrorism, nuclear weapons proliferation and large-scale tax evasion; assisting in major financial frauds and in concealment of criminal assets; and committing frauds that substantially worsened the worst financial bubbles and crises since the Depression.   And yet none of this conduct has been punished in any significant way."

Charles H. Ferguson, Heist of the century" Wall Street's Role in the Financial Crisis, The Guardian, 20 May 2012

“Leadership is getting results in a way that inspires trust. It’s maximizing both your current contribution and your ability to contribute in the future by establishing the trust that makes it possible.   A nation’s well-being, as well as its ability to compete, is conditioned by a single, pervasive cultural characteristic: the level of trust inherent in the society.  The more people rationalize cheating, the more it becomes a culture of dishonesty.  And that can become a vicious, downward cycle.  Because suddenly, if everyone else is cheating, you feel a need to cheat, too."

Stephen Covey, The Speed of Trust

"Capitalism is at risk of failing today not because we are running out of innovations, or because markets are failing to inspire private actions, but because we’ve lost sight of the operational failings of unfettered gluttony.  We are neglecting a torrent of market failures in infrastructure, finance, and the environment. We are turning our backs on a grotesque worsening of income inequality and willfully continuing to slash social benefits.  We are destroying the Earth as if we are indeed the last generation."

Jeffrey Sachs, Self-interest, Without Morals, Philadelphia Fed, April 17th, 2013

The economic data came in a little hot this morning, and with the recent earnings report flops, that served to take the equity markets down.

Gold and silver were hit rather hard in honor of an otherwise inconsequential Comex metals options expiration.

It's the spirit, never the substance, of the scam.

The Dollar chopped sideways.

VIX came in high and drifted lower.

The war in the Mideast is smoldering in a most ominous way.

The odor of the moral character of the centers of power is most foul.

Have a pleasant evening.

Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Storm Warnings


"No one screams against this hell.  No one protests.  And if they abhor what they see, they do not have the courage to damn the damned.  One alone would not have failed us.  Péguy would have spoken, I hope, he would have let loose his scream.  He is not here, and there is no one else."

André Suarès, 1939

“We must always tell what we see.  Above all, and this is more difficult, we must always see what we see.”

Charles Péguy

"Bully-worship, under various disguises, has become a universal religion."

George Orwell, Review of Bertrand Russell's Power, Adelphi, 1939

“Ayn Rand's 'philosophy' is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society.  Moral values are in flux.  The muddy depths are being stirred by new monsters and witches from the deep.  Trolls walk the American night.  Caesars are stirring in the Forum.  There are storm warnings ahead.”

Gore Vidal, Comment, Esquire, July 1, 1961

"Legitimate power always includes attentiveness to justice.  When power is not attentive to justice it cannot endure.  The market ideology is now the new form of imperial power and many of us, without any critical reflection, have signed onto that and organized our lives in that way."

Walter Brueggemann, Truth Speaks to Power, 2013

"We've become, now, an oligarchy instead of a democracy.  I think that's been the worst damage to the basic moral and ethical standards to the American political system that I've ever seen in my life."

Jimmy Carter, television interview, September 27, 2015

"The gates of hell are open night and day; the descent is smooth, and easy is the way.  But to return to the open air again, and view the cheerful skies, in this the task and mighty labor lies."

Virgil, The Aeneid

Stocks took a dive today, finishing off near the lows.

VIX rose.

The Dollar climbed a little higher.

Gold rallied a bit while silver flattened after a big intraday drop.

The US apparently has persuaded Israel to hold off on their invasion of Gasa in order to allow the US to deploy more missile defense systems 'to protect US troops.'

I suspect this, and the timeliness for a rinse in the old wash-rinse cycle, was the primary motivation.

There was some positive economic news, but meh, it looks like the markets are a bit jumpy.

We'll be getting another Payrolls report at the end of next week, but really the timing and scope of a Middle East conflict seems to be the primary influence for market sentiment.

Have a pleasant evening.


Mankind has no knowledge of anything important apart from some minor technologies. Nothing. Mankind has invested most all its energies into 
arrogance, ego, pretense, theft, deceit, lying, etc.,in other words, the 
adoption of 'belief systems' founded in false premise, hatred, criminal 
desire, ignorance, murder, killing and War, etc. The values of the 'belief 
systems' of mankind are rooted in "money", assets and political influence:
 so be it. Death will be your end.

As one digs deeper into the national character of the Americans, one sees that they have sought the value of everything  in this world only in the answer to this single question: how much money will it bring in?’

– Alexis de Tocqueville

Yet we know nothing; where if we consider that we do know something, it is a lie. We do know how to kill, lie and War. And we have our Ego.And besides, there is no need to be afraid; no need to fear at all - as you are already dead; the 'Cult' embraces all who fear.

Stupid just cannot be fixed.

 Analysis of human behaviour indicates with little exception that our so-called 'human values focuses upon the murdering and genocide of our children and that we are prepared and indeed welcome alternative methods to accomplish this horrific beastial crime. Bombs, drones, induced chemical virus, murderous injections, er, vaccinations, illicit drugs, hunger, desperation, false judgement, imprisonment, taxation and let us always remember the Prime Tool of the Cult, "bullshit" via the totally captured infrastructures and highways of the mainstream media; a Cult' within itself.

Oh, the Joy.

I am the CULT and my name be Death

The stage for WWIII is set which, in all probability will be nuclear; billions will die and suffer and those of the 'Cult' will rejoice. The West has already lost.

Let this be heard, and clearly understood that there are no forms of government such as 'socialism' - 'communism' - 'republicanism' - 'democracy' - etc. There is only 'feudalism' which is an imposed authoritarian control system by those of the monied Cult described and exalted as "the Elite". The 'Cult' does not respect you but it needs you; the 'Cult' has always needed you. Beware the Grifter - that cockroach of the "Cult'.


The elite are incompetent - they need ignorant slaves and certainly not knowledgeable humans that are beings following in the wake of the Universe itself, that "Being of Beings."

There is no such thing as 'ideology'. You know nothing and neither does anyone else; all that you are/ have been taught and told, read and see, is a manipulated lie to keep you from realizing that as a member of the "cult', you are 'dead'. You are to remain as such by design and the will of the 'Cult'. Do not rise to use your mind - do not think - do not meditate - do not consider: Trust the 'Cult'. 'Believe'.

All commentaries are derived from the identical educational mindsets that date back prior to Aristotle and Plato, that is to say, 'rote and imitation'. None of your cognitive potentials have been honed and or tested. None know anything but you 'believe' that  makes you superior to an earthworm? I assure you, you are not!

You are borne into life with a natural consciousness, as all life while this may be addressed as 'animal-consciousness' . The object of the life of 'being' is to develop 'subjective-consciousness' or tacit / experiential consciousness; this is your Soul. Mankind has failed in this most basic of tasks and continues to wander the desert in crasse ignorance killing all that moves for want of the "Promised Land', ignoring the fact that mankind is the 'promised land. So, as Moses before him, he becomes Death. And here we are.

Paye Attentione:

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing”.Socrates

The 'Cult' wants WWIII and the Cult is going to get WWIII as that is how the "Cult' feeds and grows and there is no choice now but a nuclear WWIII. The 'Cult' will survive but you probably, and Yours, will not. Will you be happy? No matter what you name the "Cult", the "Cult" dominates; it is THE preferred culture of Being. The name of the "Cult" is "Death". 'Believe'.

You have a choice. But you must 'accomplish' your Soul by yourself.

"It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all.

It merely required no character.”

WWIII has begun

    Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good."

About Me

My photo
I am now considered too old to be of further threat but I have survived three institutional attempts to prematurely end my life during my career. The current Global Systemic Collapse (GSC), better described as a 'global leadership collapse' (GLC), is a socio-economic phase-transition brought about by the total failure of global "leadership", to find even the most basic of foresight and compassionate sensitivities to balance the imbalances and injustices that they have wrought on the World. Governments' are now attempting to create an exclusive risk-free corporate environment. This delusional ideology of pure insanity, cannot sustain. This sought "risk-free' corporate banking environment is to be achieved by transferring all risk and all financial losses to the tax-payers (“Main Street”) while maintaining a highly secretive cabal of global elites and ruling politician and bankers. The simple truth is that our "Economic Theory" is a fatally flawed, faith-based farce, and "leadership" do not have the necessary intelligence nor intellect to confront the issues du jour. There are now only Heretics and Fools, but, there is always a “choice”.
