How The Globalists Screwed The Pooch But Also Paved The Way

So it’s Not All Bad News…Just Bad For The Ones Who Deserve It

I stumbled upon an article the other day in a publication called The Daily Reckoning, penned by a gentleman named James Howard Kunstler. The piece was boldly titled “Bad News for Globalists.” As I read through it, I found myself vigorously nodding in agreement, each point landing like a punch in the gut of delusion. I was so struck by the resonance of Kunstler’s words that I knew I had to do more than just read it—I had to dissect it, paste the whole damn thing into my blog, and go to town on every section with my own unfiltered commentary.

So here’s what we’re going to do: I’ll lay out an introduction, giving you the lowdown on what’s to come. Then, I’ll break into several sections, tearing into the meat of the matter like a rabid dog, because let’s not mince words here—the West is fucked.

Kunstler isn’t just whistling Dixie; he’s sounding the alarm, and it’s about damn time we all listened up. The globalist agenda, with its highfalutin ideals and pie-in-the-sky promises, is crumbling like a stale cookie under the boot of reality. And as it crumbles, the so-called elite are scrambling like rats on a sinking ship, trying to salvage their utopian dreams from the wreckage of their own making.

But as I delve into my commentary, don’t expect some watered-down, sugar-coated bullshit. This is FreeTheAnimal.com, and we’re all about the raw, unvarnished truth. If the article’s truth bombs are a slap in the face, my commentary is the follow-up right hook. No apologies, no retreats, and certainly no fucking surrender.

So brace yourselves, because this is going to be a bumpy ride. But it’s a necessary one. Because if we’re going to pull ourselves out of this mess, we need to confront the hard truths head-on, with eyes wide open and fists clenched tight. Let’s get to it.

Bad News for Globalists

“It’s not enough to be against globalism or the WEF, we have to also be for something better.” — Tom Luongo, Gold, Goats ’n Guns podcast

Mr. Luongo makes an important point. I want you to think about this: There is a reason that the WEF-Globalist cabal is losing the battle to control and dominate the rest of us. They are trying to power straight into the opposing currents of reality.

Above all, they seek to centralize power and decision-making. But the world is moving in the opposite direction. All of the WEF’s aims founder on the macro trends unspooling in history.

Reflect on this for a moment: Across the vast expanse of human history, the story of civilization is one of migration. Initially, groups of people and tribes traversed from one geographical area to another, seeking resources to ensure their survival. They were constantly on the move, either escaping inadequate living conditions or in pursuit of environments that promised a more assured existence.

As civilization progressed, with the advent of agriculture and the domestication of animals, we witnessed a paradigm shift. The quest for survival increasingly drew people toward urban centers—bustling cities that would have been inconceivable in earlier times. Such dense populations in confined spaces would have quickly exhausted any local resources. Consequently, the sustenance of these urban populations relied heavily on the transportation of resources from afar. This phenomenon epitomizes a form of centralization.

For years, I’ve maintained that one can discern the mindset of different political ideologies—liberal, leftist, socialist, communist—against that of the individualist, the entrepreneur, the “do-it-yourselfer,” by observing this pattern of centralization. Consider the political landscape of the USA, with its red versus blue dichotomy. The blue is clustered around major urban centers, while the red spans the vast, less-densely populated areas. This clustering in cities reflects a leftist, collectivist mentality—an inclination to congregate and live off the collective, which, while it may seem far-fetched or even fantastical, is also a natural expression of human indolence.

Stripping away the moral codes constructed by society, we see that nature is indifferent to our pursuits of leisure and comfort. It does not judge the path of least resistance; survival is its only concern. However, technology, the great enabler, has emerged as a double-edged sword. While it has the potential to centralize and collectivize, it also has the profound capacity to democratize and disseminate information. Today, technology equips nearly everyone with a “supercomputer” in their pocket, reaching even the most remote corners of the globe.

In a delicious twist of irony, the very tools that centralizers and collectivists believed would cement their power, profits, and influence are now catalyzing their undoing. A global awakening is afoot, as people everywhere, equipped with unfettered access to information, are recognizing the inherent flaws in our civilized structures. In this new era of enlightenment, the truest form of “wokeness,” we are witnessing the unraveling of the grand illusion that has long governed human societies.

The rising rule for human affairs now is that anything organized at the giant scale is going to wobble and fail. There will not be any world government run by the creatures of Davos or Brussels, or Washington, D.C., or any other place that the grandiose imagine would be their seat of global power.

It’s not going to happen so you can stop worrying about it. But you’d better prepare for what is happening: Everything in our world wants to get smaller, slower, finer and more local. Anything that opposes these trends is peeing into the wind.

The social engineers overlooked one insignificant but crucial detail: the intricacies of social conduct—niceties, polite interactions, gentlemanliness, yielding, taking the high road, and simply asking with courtesy. These are human constructs. They exist because, even within the same species, animals show natural distrust towards one another unless they’re part of a pack, herd, or hive. Consequently, the default position for humans, who are strangers to each other, is not to take an immediate liking to one another unless there’s a compelling reason to do so. These reasons often revolve around reciprocity in the quest for survival, extending from sexual reproduction to social cooperation and the natural divisions of labor that promote survival. In the absence of such reasons, the default position is one of suspicion, wary of what the other individual may want to take, whether by force, manipulation, intimidation, or fraud. As the old maternal adage goes, “Don’t talk to strangers.”

In their grand Pollyannaish scheme, the leftists sit in their echo chambers, devising plans and running scenarios, yet they fail to recognize that brotherly love is not the norm—it’s not inherently natural. To compound matters, the way in which institutional power retains and maintains influence is by creating and fostering social antagonism, pitting individuals and groups against each other. They capitalize on something that’s fundamentally natural—the antagonism between unfamiliar humans who don’t share tribal or familial bonds—to further their agenda towards a collectivist, centralist world, an imagined utopia.

Yet, it’s all coming apart at the seams. Their oversight is glaring. By ignoring the fundamental human tendency towards distrust of the unfamiliar, their designs for a harmonious collective are flawed from the outset. In their attempt to use natural human wariness as a tool for their grand vision, they inadvertently reveal the underlying tension in their utopian fantasy. It’s a cautionary tale that when crafting society, one must not discard the very fabric of human nature, lest the whole tapestry unravels before our eyes.

Colossal Crack-Up

Since every activity we humans practice has to move in that direction, we are seeing colossal industries, institutions and arrangements crack up: everything from national government to long-distance supply chains to giant retailing outfits to worldwide business networks to overgrown universities and high schools to transport matrixes to metroplex cities to mega-farms to political parties.

Where the rot is probably greatest, but more veiled for the moment, is in the operations of organized capital, the banks and money systems, including financial markets. When these monsters blow, as they must, all the others will shake, rattle and roll. They have to blow because the fuel tank is emptying.

American oil production may be at an all-time peak now at about 13 million barrels a day, but most of that — about 8 million — is shale oil, which is a manifestation of our tremendous debt roll-up since 2009. Now that we’re at the absolute limits of debt, we’re also at the limits of shale oil.

The production of shale oil paralleled the accumulation of all that debt both in size and rate of increase, and as the debt goes bad — meaning unpayable — the organized capital sector will blow and shale oil production will fall as sharply as it rose. It is also a fact that shale oil is subject to natural limits — we’re out of “sweet spots” to drill.

There’s a multitude of complexities unfolding globally, and the Western world—primarily North America and Western Europe, along with a few ‘Down Under’—isn’t simply whistling past the graveyard. They’re outright denying the existence of the graveyard. In a state of profound denial, Western institutions plod on, convinced that everything is on course, meticulously planned for, and all contingencies accounted for. The current obsession is to contain the so-called Russian threat by bolstering what is seen as the glorious paragon of democracy, competent governance, human rights, and a beacon of hope—otherwise known as Ukraine.

This containment of Russia has been the West’s prime geopolitical aim since around 1992 when the Soviet Union officially dissolved. But the efforts began even earlier, around 1989 and 1990, or before, as the Soviet Union was crumbling internally, evidenced by initiatives like Glasnost and Perestroika. As an officer in the US Navy stationed in that part of the world at the time, as part of a US Navy carrier group, I gained some insight into the situation. We engaged in what could be called ‘gentlemanly war games’ with the Soviets, a daily occurrence.

Consider this: a region that includes India, China, Southeast Asia, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, and above it, Russia, contains over half the world’s population. Russia, notably, is the most resource-rich country on the planet. One doesn’t need to be a genius, nor meet the 110 IQ threshold jokingly required to contribute to this blog, to recognize the strategic implications. One need not even leave the comfort of their couch to understand the geopolitical chessboard.

But what about China? I think two motives behind the West’s allowances for them, and even encouragement of their development might be: First, it was assumed China would be more susceptible to containment by the West than Russia. Second, it provides competitive containment of Russia, seen as the larger long-term threat. However, the West’s push to contain Russia and expand NATO has led to unintended consequences, whether you view them as Russian aggression or humanitarian aid to certain Ukrainian regions.

As a result of Western sanctions, which reach beyond Russia itself, nations like Russia, China, India, parts of the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, and even South America, are collectively questioning the status quo. They’re concerned about becoming the next target and are considering alternatives to the US dollar and the American-dominated financial and banking systems.

Look no further than the developing world, where innovative financial practices have leapfrogged traditional Western banking methods. These nations have bypassed antiquated systems like check writing and batch processing, moving straight to app-based transactions. With a simple phone app, individuals can transfer money direct from bank-account-to-bank-account instantly, 24/7, 365 days a year, at no cost. Small business owners don’t need merchant accounts for payment processing; no need for credit or debit cards. Everyone has a banking app on their phone. A quick scan of a QR or name of bank and account number input (or even a phone number), an entered amount, a tap of ‘send,’ and the funds move instantly—no ‘pending’ status, no 2 to 5 business days for clearance. This renders the old ‘float’ system—where banks profit while holding onto people’s money—obsolete.

For decades, Western banks have perpetuated a fraud, unnecessarily holding onto money when instant, secure transfers were possible. They’ve impeded progress and held up trillions of dollars daily, for their gain from the float between transactions. So, to those institutions clinging to their outdated systems and standing in the way of progress for their ill-gotten gains, I say: fuck you. You should all be liquidated and have your assets distributed to those you’ve been stealing from for decades.

“Europe Is Completely Screwed”

That’s America. Europe is way worse because aside from whatever oil is left in the North Sea (not much), Europe has no oil. Europe’s largest gas field — Groningen in the Netherlands — was scheduled to cease operations in October of last year.

You all know what happened to the Nord Stream pipelines. And then Germany, in some psychotic fugue state, shut down its entire nuclear power industry, while France is just not replacing its nuke plants as they age out.

Europe is completely screwed. They won’t have anything we might call modern industry. In the meantime, the WEF is playing them like a flugelhorn, keeping them distracted with “green” politics, an unchecked immigrant invasion and sexual confusion.

A lot of the same nuttery afflicts us in the USA, of course, but none of that alters the real macro trends. Our federal government is not really getting more powerful, it’s cracking up, starting from the very top, with a mentally incompetent president — the secret that everybody knows.

Agencies like the DOJ and Homeland Security may seem more tyrannical for the moment, but they are actually breaking as institutions because in their lawlessness they’ve lost the trust of the people — and nothing is more fundamental to a civilized society than trust in the law. That’s what consent of the governed means.

Contrasting the decay of the West is the vibrant region of Southeast Asia where I reside. It’s a tapestry of developing and modern nations, boasting robust manufacturing and industrial bases. Infrastructure development is burgeoning at every turn, an undeniable testament to their progress. These countries are culturally conservative, predominantly run by men, and they do not feature lavish social-welfare systems…none of them. You may have your own opinions on this, but the hard facts speak for themselves.

You’re free to hold any ideological stance—be it feminist, leftist, woke, socialist, communist, fascist, or otherwise. However, one cannot ignore the clear downward trajectory these Western nations are on. It’s evident which direction they are heading, and one might argue that this is influenced by what I term the “female survival strategy” that permeates societal dynamics.

What exactly is this “female survival strategy”? At its core, it encompasses tactics like gossiping, shaming, rallying, ridiculing, and moralizing (GSRRM)…also: psychologizing, undermining, reputation destruction, and solving for face or consent. Some may find it offensive to paint women in this way, but I assert that it’s a natural survival mechanism—for the physically weaker sex and especially for those who are vulnerable during childbearing and rearing—to develop means of survival that differ from the more rational, fact-based, tribal hierarchical structures typically associated with packs, warriors, and soldiers that solve for truth through facts. Out of necessity, females have had to master the art of coexisting with adversaries, even ‘sleeping with the enemy’ when circumstances demand it. History has shown us that this is not only excusable but essential.

This survival strategy is innate; it’s how women adapt and learn to survive when the shit hits the fan. But when these tactics infiltrate politics, we witness the proliferation of social antagonism: the incessant identity politics, race baiting, feminism, and the myriad issues encompassed by the LGBTIDGAF bullshit. Ultimately, all these movements aim to coax men into adopting this female survival strategy.

In a nutshell, the West is disintegrating because it has been feminized.

Yet, where I live, this survival strategy simply doesn’t resonate at scale. Observe the stark contrast between Southeast Asia’s growth and the West’s decline, and then form your judgments.

Survival of the Smallest

So the period of disorderly transition we’re in is not moving toward greater dominance by giants, but to the survival of the small and nimble. We will not see capital formation like the orgy of recent times: rather the vanishing of things falsely presumed to be capital, contraction not expansion.

You’ll be struggling to identify and preserve real wealth, which you’ll find in unexpected places, like the friends you can count on, your reputation for honesty, your dependability, acquired skills and your health, physical and psychological.

The WEF won’t be able to impose its Globalist nightmare of elite transhumanism and surveilled bug-eating serfs, and they know it now. They’re running scared. The vile Yuval Noah Harari has even said so publicly. The political figures and agents serving that cabal will be lucky if they are not hanged in the public squares.

The political criminals here in America, the hoaxsters, the grifters, the seditionists, the Lawfare agents, the election fraudsters, know very well the danger of their looming prosecutions, and that’s exactly why they and their blob henchmen and flunkies are acting like desperate lunatics.

Expect: failed national governments, maybe even state governments; failed supply lines; failed electric supply, failed trucking, failed big-box stores, failed supermarkets, failed giant companies; failed banks, failed investments, failed money, failed news orgs, failed airlines, failed car dealers, failed hospitals, failed colleges and much more.

But don’t discount human ingenuity and resourcefulness, our ability to work-around and reinvent systems for daily life, even if it’s on a downscaled and more modest level.

Ah, the stark contrast between the decaying West and the rest of the world, which appears to be in a perpetual state of development. Things certainly move fast, and the landscape isn’t what it was a mere 10 years ago—definitely not what it was 20, 30, or 40 years back. I remember it well; I was visiting this region on the regular in the 1980s, and I lived in Japan. Back then, Japan was the beacon of advancement juxtaposed against its less-developed neighbors. But I’ve witnessed Korea’s meteoric rise from underdevelopment to being nearly on par with Japan, all unfolding right before my eyes in the early to mid-80s. It was rapid, yet they managed to retain their essential culture and conservatism.

Perhaps they learned from the West’s mistakes because they certainly haven’t flung the gates wide open to the torrent of putrid bullshit that floods our Western streets. Sure, Asia has its fair share of what we’d call “dens of iniquity,” but there’s a nuanced approach there—a sort of tacit understanding that these things, while perhaps normal or expected human behaviors, are better kept out of the public eye. They’re not about to be sanctimonious on one hand or brazenly parade it all for the world to see on the other. Instead, they’ve managed to keep it under wraps, maintaining a far superior sense of decorum and public decency.

And that’s something the West could stand to learn from. Instead of either feigning shock and moral outrage or celebrating every proclivity regardless of its nature, there’s something to be said for a culture that recognizes human nature but chooses to uphold a standard of public respectability. It’s a balance, a tightrope walk that the West has fallen off of in the most disgraceful of fashions.

What You Can Expect

Expect rebuilt local economies from production to wholesale to retail. Expect smaller stores, fewer things to buy but much of it better quality. Expect a lot less long-distance travel but a lot more happening in your locality.

Expect the rebirth of local culture — theaters, live music, newsheets, dances — to replace all the canned entertainments we’re used to. Expect small private academies to rise to replace the shuttered central schools. Expect small local clinics to appear from the ashes of the medical conglomerates. Expect Americans to return to churches as an organizing mechanism for community relations.

Expect more formality and less slobbery in public. Expect all of us to feel a renewed sense of gratitude for being here instead of rage, resentment and grievance, because it’s likely there will be far fewer of us around.

It’s perhaps the advent phenomenon of social media that we have to thank, in part, for this cultural shift. At one point, everyone got all jazzed up about having their digital soapbox on Facebook, boasting an international audience. Facebook, in particular, had the gall to label connections from every corner of the globe as “friends.” It’s a cheapening of the concept. People aren’t stupid; they get it. So, you end up with people boasting thousands of “friends,” engaging in countless interactions that are, for the most part, meaningless.

Why are they meaningless? Because they’re not local. They’re not people you’ve ever met in person. They’re like those distant relatives you awkwardly nod to once a decade at family reunions. You share a last name, but you don’t know them; you haven’t the slightest clue what’s really going on in their lives.

It’s ironic, really. This whole globalization wave, embraced by the institutional and elite classes—and let’s be honest, many of us bought into it too—because there is undeniable value in global communication. Everyone can be a content producer, and dammit, some of that content is good. We’ve reached a point where folks with smartphones in their pockets are doing better journalism than any major news media outlet. They’re out there, capturing footage, providing commentary, going viral whilst pro journalists sit and Google shit —so there’s value in this, no question.

But how does it all pan out? My sense is, reflecting on what’s written in this article, that people are starving for, and developing a newfound appreciation for, human face-to-face contact and interaction. That’s what’s driving this resurgence. We’re humans; it’s in our nature to be social creatures. True social interaction requires engaging all of our senses, and while video chats are a step up, they still can’t replace the interactions you have with your friends, family, and local community.

All these digital advancements, once envisioned to cement centralized control, have backfired. They’ve made people realize the value of local interactions—face-to-face connections, friends and family, small community ties, mom-and-pop shops, artisans.

And that brings me to another point. The moment a digital copy of information was transmitted from one node to another, it spelled the doom for all intellectual property laws—copyrights, patents, and so forth. Now, with AI, where you can reproduce or closely mimic anything, it raises the question: if you miss a piece of music, and someone can replicate it, bypassing copyright laws, does it matter? What people desire is to connect with the artist directly, to support them. It becomes a local, personal endeavor.

So yes, we’re coming full circle back to local, personal, meaningful, valuable contact with other human beings. We use our tools and the mass distribution at our disposal not to replace but to enhance our local and intimate experiences. That’s the future as I see it. We don’t discard our tools; we simply use them differently. And that, my friends, is a revolution worth embracing.
