Cashless society

Food for thought 💲 ….A cashless society means no cash. . Zero. . It doesn’t mean mostly cashless and you can still use a ‘wee bit of cash here & there’. Cashless means fully digital, fully traceable, fully controlled. I think those who support a cashless society aren’t fully aware of what they are asking […]

The consciousness revolution

I read this post today. It resonated. Caitlin is bang on the money. The fight to liberate humanity from oppression, exploitation, butchery and madness is really a fight to expand consciousness.

Lunges

Billionaires did this

While we had our attention diverted to the covid pandemic, billionaires made a truck load more money. It’s the greatest transfer of wealth in recent history. A bunch of CEO’s quit their jobs, cashed out their shares, making a killing. It’s bordering on insider trading but heck, these loopholes exist for the rich and powerful. […]

The data on which the UCL models for the lockdown were based have proven to be incorrect. Neil Ferguson’s estimates have been wildly inaccurate throughout his career. The lockdown may have been for entirely avoidable. An expert fail. It would be difficult to surpass the Iraq blunder, but emerging evidence on COVID-19 suggests the experts—again: […]

A stiff upper lip

The British response to the covid pandemic has centred around a familiar mantra. Courage in the face of adversity. Perseverance through the tough times. Keep calm and carry on These are commendable traits that echo the collective war time effort that saw the British defeat the Nazis. This popular ideology has been politicised and weaponised […]

Cirrus

Crossing the Siolim bridge this morning I saw the sunrise. It was a rare privilege to see it. A beautiful way to start a new day. Rolling home from Cirrus after a night of revelry felt like a fitting celebration of the world’s greatest festival at fifty. The gentle afterglow of a tribal shakedown carrying […]

Hedonism is an important part of the cultural mix and festivals are certainly my preferred shakedown. I had a conversation recently about how in […]
