The collapse of the current world order is here
The Oh-So-Woke Sooper Geenyuses that think they know better how we are supposed to live are reaping the fruit of their Wokeness. In Sri Lanka where the government decreed that farmers should not use fertilizers on their fields but grow crops “organically” and “sustainably,” the harvest has failed catastrophically, kicking off a cascade of failure from which no immediate recovery is possible.
Sri Lanka’s economy has collapsed. This is what an actual January 6th looks like not the fake one that America scripted. The IMF won’t bail them out either. 80% of the population currently can’t get daily meals. They had a middle class last year. This was the country that known pedophile, science fiction author, and inventor of frauds like the satellite, Arthur C Clark fled to to avoid arrest and openly live with young boys. The country has been morally broken for a long time. But now it’s financially broken. They also just ran out of all fossil fuels and no one will ship them any because their money is worthless.

The President of Sri Lanaka has fled the country just ahead of the mob that burned his house to the ground, the Prime Minister resigned and was last seen boarding a ship with a suitcase shortly before his house was also burned to the ground. Last week Sri Lanka had a middle class, today 80% of the people have no money, no fuel, no food, and no resources. It is going to turn into an absolute dog eat dog (literally) hell hole from which they will likely not recover for a century or more. It will probably take them twenty years just to descend back into the stone age.
This is what insurrection looks like. Take note, America, this is what the preening arrogance of our self styled aristocracy will get us to. Best we put a stop to it before the whole country goes over the edge. No, of course these nitwits don’t believe that it will come to this, blinded by hubris and the wicked dogmas of the corrupt and murderous Church of, let’s face it, Communism. They will be just as surprised as the Sri Lankan leadership when it all drops into the pot. Oh, yes, the High Priests and Thought Leaders know what’s up, are pillaging the country as they are poised to skip out on the inevitable consequences once the con collapses.
Sri Lanka is the first domino to fall, but not the last. Again from Vox Day:
The head of the Swiss gas industry, André Dosé, warns about the dangerous energy and electricity situation facing Europe in the aftermath of the self-destructive decision on the part of the European governments to go to war with Russia and China on the orders of the US-based neocons. Of course, if the Swiss had maintained their historical neutrality, they could simply ask the Russians for help, but instead they’re being retaught the painful lesson of a) taking sides and b) aligning with the losers.
How dire is the situation?
We have a huge problem. There are currently increasing signs that no more gas will flow from Russia to Europe via Nord Stream 1 after the maintenance in July. The gas shortage in Germany could be declared in the next few days. Coal-fired power plants are now being used in Germany to produce electricity. At the same time, 40 to 45 percent of the nuclear power plants in France are out of operation. And the world’s largest gas supplier, Uniper, has asked the state for stabilization measures because of liquidity problems. Under these conditions, it takes very little for energy to run out in winter.
Does that also apply to Switzerland?
Yes. We depend on year-round gas imports and electricity imports in winter. This crisis in Switzerland is largely self-inflicted. The Energy Strategy 2050 is built on sand. It was assumed that there was no population growth, the population reduced electricity consumption. Likewise, electromobility was not included in the scenarios when voting. It was a dream that would never have worked one way or the other. The Ukraine war is now forcing us to rethink dramatically.
What must Switzerland do now?
There is no short-term solution. The expansion of photovoltaics is all right and good – but it won’t get us through the winter. Switzerland lags behind other countries in Europe. In addition, we do not have an electricity agreement with the EU, which does not improve our situation.
The “Perfect Storm”.
Yes, unfortunately. And I don’t have the impression that people in this country are aware of how dangerous the situation is. If the population is now called upon to take a shower instead of a bath, then the scope of our problems is fundamentally misunderstood.

The situation is economically catalysmic, and may even prove to be societally cataclysmic. Three years ago, a megawatt hour of gas cost EUR 7. The price is now EUR 175, and is expected to rise to at least 250.
Spot electricity and gas markets are blowing up. But, less noticed, so are 2023 and 2024 gas prices.
Germany’s gas situation is dire. They are issuing official warnings about rationing. Lots of manufacturing will get turned off. People who hedged forward will face massive margin calls. Industry experts are predicting governments will have to do bailouts.
I do not think Europe will sustain its current position on UKR/Russia through this winter. And Putin can squeeze much harder. European voters will not support large hits to their living standards to fund turnign UKR into rubble and fighting between people screaming in Russian at each other.
The media and much of academia has cheered for the war so it’s very hard for them to cover this story…
The war against Russia was always and obviously going to be a complete disaster, without even taking China and the other BRICSIA nations into account. The European countries absolutely need to surrender now, before the weather turns cold and their need for heat and electricity rises. But as with the defeated Ukrainian military forces, it is unlikely that their globalist masters will permit them to do so. After all, the globalist elite doesn’t care about freezing Poles, Germans, or Swiss any more than they do about their starving Ukrainian cannon fodder.
Too late the Eurocrats are beginning to realize their mistake and are trying to turn their policies around to keep from going over the cliff. They, and we, have been kicking the can down the road for decades, not the Euros are trying to pull it back. Your Irascible Correspondent does not believe that it will work. They have gone all in on the Marxist Madness and now they don’t have enough left to restore the status quo ante. Many ancient peoples will be destroyed. Economies will collapse, the people reduced to starvation and then brought into subjection by the Muslim populations they foolishly imported. It will be worse in Africa.
Here in the US we will have much to suffer as these self-styled elites crash the economy and bring us to the brink of starvation, believing they can enslave us too. I do not believe they will succeed either in whole or permanently. We will get through this. The sooner we make clear to these morons that they do not have the consent of the governed and make it stick by peaceful civil disobedience the better off we will all be.
