Talking about money is a turn off. Which is why it’s the bankers’ favourite weapon. We’re so eager to end the discussion we’ll sign almost anything.
One of the techniques of bureaucratic or corporate warfare is to bore your opponent into submission, by meeting or filibuster. Another is to make the simple confusing by spinning a web. The third is illusion: to create and inhabit a parallel reality, and refuse to acknowledge the world your rival sees.
There was a time when the foot-in-the-door salesman sought to make the ground shift under your feet — as did the sectarian party hack. Back then you still trusted the politician and the grey-suited banker. Nowadays reality-bending is everywhere.
We are told our “normal” is over. We are not yet told how it will end, nor what will replace it. Only that is unsustainable.
Hyperinflation or new digital currency are the fetters and chains that bankers proffer. Identity tracked by 5G, via phone or wedded to the body. Only the most tendentious miscreant now ignores the evidence that matches patents for injected or attached materials that surveil the human individual. Does it do what it says on the tin?
We are living in crisis times: what Russians call Crisis Genre. It’s the name of a club in Moscow. As is Propaganda. They know whereof they speak. They lived for three quarters of a century with illusion. Originally there was a Potemkin village to deceive the Tsarina. Now it is erected to deceive us.
It’s most clear in the economy. When the bulk of the labour force was told to “work” from home — many were given stimulus cheques to do nothing — the stock market continued to boom. It’s true that small businesses suffered and many were closed. But that was the productive economy. The big name corporations didn’t seem to notice.
The stimulus extended to government: from austerity to bonanza in the blink of an eye. Where was the money hiding before the pandemic?
Illusion is nothing new. The anthropologist David Graeber, best known for his article “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs,” argued that a huge layer of society is paid to do nothing, because they maintain the power of finance capital. 
Graeber, one of the instigators of Occupy Wall Street, would have had much to say about The Great Reset. He died surprisingly, aged 59, in Sep 2020.
He wasn’t the first to notice that companies don’t do “what it says on the tin.” The big car manufacturers are really banks, profiting from the loans they make to customers. Autoworkers make cars but their work only partly determines their company’s share price.
It’s not a question of whose job is more valuable. It is finance and politics that sets a value on work that keeps the powerful and the rich on top.
Economic growth is partly an illusion, says Dr Richard Werner: you cannot create energy but only change it from one state to another. It follows that it is a false narrative to say economic growth is bad for the environment, and that we should have zero growth.
This illusion, this parallel reality, promoted by media filibuster is a cover for a very real agenda. Real, because it involves capturing the most valuable elements of the Earth: its minerals, fuels, land and resources.
A professor of economic bubbles, crashes and deceptive central bankers, Dr Werner says the agenda is to make much of the economy unviable, by closing small banks that lend to small businesses, which create 80 per cent of jobs, and to concentrate wealth in a few privately-owned central banks. That would kill growth but it would concentrate resources. 
Some environmental economists say they don’t want economic growth and nor do they want people. The UN Population Fund has the goal of reducing the population.
Still to come (1,500 words or 9-minute read)
Bankers have a well-practised path, from bubble inflation to crashing the market and calling in collateral. The offer of universal basic income is really a bait to get society to give up Medicare, benefits and national insurance. The result will be to enrich the wealthy on the greatest-ever scale. The dénouement will be the crashing of the system in which everything will collapse, to be built back better: banking, the money system, welfare, society and even the protagonist: the pharmaceutical industry itself.
