Visualizing The 4,000 Year History Of Global Power

Imagine creating a timeline of your country’s whole history stretching back to its inception. It would be no small task, as VisualCapitalist's Nick Routley explains, simply weighing the relative importance of so many great people, technological achievements, and pivotal events would be a tiny miracle in itself. While that seems like a challenge, imagine going […]


A Europe We Can Believe In

Via Oriental Review, In early October a group of European intellectuals published a conservative manifesto with 36 tenets defending 'old Europe' and its values, which we are republishing today in full: 1.

What Will Push Them Over The Edge?

Authored by Jeff Thomas via InternationalMan.com, Recently, the people of two of Italy’s most prosperous regions voted in a referendum, on whether they wished to have greater autonomy from Rome.

Why So Many (In The West) Are So Pissed Off

Via BusinessCycle.com, Campaigning to “Make America Great Again,” Donald Trump swept to the presidency last November 8, buoyed by a wave of anger and sense of betrayal in the American heartland.

What Could Pop The Everything Bubble?

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via PeakProsperity.com, I’ve long held that if a problem can be solved by creating $1 trillion out of thin air and buying a raft of assets with that $1 trillion, then central banks will solve the problem by creating the $1 trillion out of thin air – nothing could be […]


Washington Is “The New Rome”

Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning, I just got back from a trip to Washington, or what I call “New Rome” because Washington’s relationship to the rest of America is the same as Rome’s relations with the agrarian and plebeian citizens of its vast domains in late antiquity. Washington is a parasite that […]


Globalization Is Poverty: “The Endgame Is Painfully Obvious”

Authored by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog, Central bankers have never done more damage to the world economy than in the past 10 years.

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com, There was a time, centuries ago, that France was the dominant superpower in the world. They had it all. Overseas colonies. An enormous military.

Jim Kunstler’s Solution To Uniting American Citizens – Overturn ‘Citizens United’

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com, Poor old Karl Marx, tortured by boils and phantoms, was right about one thing: History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. Thus, I give you the Roman Empire and now the United States of America. Rome surrendered to time and entropy. Our method is to drive […]


Embrace The Suck: Debt-Serdom and Our Neofuedal Status Quo

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog, Democracy (i.e. political influence) and ownership of productive assets are the exclusive domains of the New Aristocracy. I have often used the words neoliberal, neocolonial and neofeudal to describe our socio-economic-political status quo. Here are my shorthand descriptions of each term: 1. Neoliberal: the commoditization / financialization […]


The Clinton Private Rooftop Garden: An Obscene Violation Of Charity Law & Principles

Authored by Stuart Dean via Medium.com, At least as far back as the days of decadent Roman emperors such as Nero and Caligula, elaborate gardens have been notorious as an unseemly indulgence by those with wealth or power or both.
