[KR672] Keiser Report: Nudging, Bludgeoning & Pigeoning

Both of us in a double-header discuss nudging citizen-consumers like pigeons and mental patients into behaving as the technocratic elite wish them to behave – more consumption, more selfies, more fatal masturbation. This behavioural outcome is achieved through rewarding desired behaviour with plastic trinkets and poker chips which make the subjects being controlled feel empowered by their decisions to behave as their controllers had wanted them to. We look at examples of successful nudging in the UK where the electorate is bought off with games of chutes and property ladders for correct behaviour. If nudging does not work, however, there is always bludgeoning as is done in the US where the Inland Revenue Service has been seizing the bank deposits of non-complying citizen-pigeons who have not incurred massive debts.

Here is the referenced Adam Curtis piece on BBC blog.

The Wrath of Draghi: German Savers Hit with Negative Interest Rates

“Punishment Interest” it’s lovingly called in Germany, as the ECB intends to flog savers until their mood improves.

Deutsche Skatbank, a division of VR-Bank Altenburger Land, which was founded in 1859, is not the biggest bank in Germany, but it’s the first bank to confirm what German savers have been dreading for a while: the wrath of Draghi.

Globalization = Permanent Instability

Globalization continually creates imbalances that fuel a perpetual instability that gradually impoverishes every sector other than global capital.

Globalization has two guaranteed consequences: permanent instability and endless boom-and-bust cycles. As noted in Forget “Free Trade”–Focus on Capital Flows, the key engine of globalization is mobile capital: capital that can borrow money for next to nothing in one nation and then move that capital to other nations where yields are higher and opportunities for exploitation riper.

This mobility of capital is an enormous benefit to the owners of the capital, but it creates extraordinary instability for those who are not as mobile.

Central bank heroes: Your thoughts?

Stacy Summary: Your thoughts below.

‘Dangerously high’ levels of airborne carcinogens found at US fracking sites

Stacy Summary: I doubt the claim that the UK will have higher standards reducing these carcinogens to negligible levels. But, no doubt, this news ought to boost property values. And while they will only get £50 for drilling under their property, at least the British people will have an NHS to treat them for any cancer they might develop. And, as for Americans, well, I guess they prove Lenin right: “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”


Levels of benzene, formaldehyde and hydrogen sulphide were many times above the US’s air pollution limits and were detected within residential areas near to fracking wells drilled across five different states, the researchers said.

Some levels of benzene – a known carcinogen – were more than 30 times the concentrations that would be found in the air at a petrol station when filling a car with fuel, they said.

“I think we should be very concerned about these findings. Benzene and formaldehyde are both known to be human carcinogens,” said David Carpenter, professor of environmental health science as the University of Albany in New York, who led the study.

20-Year CBS News Veteran, Sharyl Attkisson, Details Massive Censorship and Propaganda in Mainstream Media

Earlier this week, I published a piece titled, Former CBS Reporter Accuses Government of Secretly Planting Classified Docs on Her Computer, which I thought was incredible in its own right, yet the information in that post seems almost trite compared to the flood of information Attkisson has revealed to the New York Post’s Kyle Smith.

These excerpts will confirm all of your worst suspicions about mainstream media…

Forget “Free Trade”–Focus on Capital Flows

In a world dominated by mobile capital, mobile capital is the comparative advantage.

Defenders and critics of “free trade” and globalization tend to present the issue as either/or: it’s inherently good or bad. In the real world, it’s not that simple. The confusion starts with defining free trade (and by extension, globalization).
