how London beat the great smog, that deadly thick fog - - Time  News

So, I’m going to be in London on March 25, talking about the New Normal Reich, and the entity I’ve been calling “GloboCap,” so I’m trying to organize my thoughts a bit in order to not make a total ass of myself in front of a bunch of British people. I figured I would reach out to my readers for feedback, as many of you appear to enjoy giving me feedback, most of which I read and appreciate. So, that’s what I am going to do in this newsletter.

First, let me tell you about the event.

The event is one of those all-day conferences, with panels and breakout groups and all that. It’s hosted by a group called Real Left, formerly Left Lockdown Sceptics. They’re calling it “The Left Case Against the World Economic Forum.” I’m on a panel with Dr. Fabio Vighi, Professor of Critical Theory and Italian at Cardiff University. It’s just the two of us. We’re the panel. We probably won’t be talking about the WEF very much, or not specifically about the WEF. We’ll mostly be talking about global capitalism, which is what I want your feedback on.

The other speakers on the other panels are:

Cory Morningstar, an independent investigative journalist, writer and environmental activist. You probably know her work from Wrong Kind of Green.

Paul Cudenec, an anarchist writer in the organic radical tradition who runs an outfit called Winter Oak.

Piers Corbyn, physicist, meteorologist, activist, notorious UK “thoughtcriminal”, and Jeremy’s brother.

Vikki Spit, the first person to receive compensation for the loss of a loved one (i.e., her fiancée) killed by one of the “Covid vaccines” from the UK Vaccine Damages Payment Scheme.

And some other folks. The line-up is still being finalized. The details are here on the Real Left website. There aren’t any names or any biographical information on the site, so I assume Real Left is some sort of nefarious “Covid-denying, conspiracy-theorizing, Putin-loving, democracy-threatening, far-right, anti-vax” leftist outfit that is plotting to storm the House of Commons, or Buckingham Palace, or whatever it is one storms in the United Kingdom.

I’m looking forward to speaking on the panel, and to taking questions afterwards, and to generally meeting and talking to people face-to-face. I turned into a bit of a talking head on the Internet over the last three years, which I thought was important to do at the time but is not something I’m generally inclined to. I’m particularly disinclined to it at the moment. I don’t know about you, but I am feeling somewhat overwhelmed by talking heads, and posts, and tweets, and podcasts, and people bellowing at me at the top of their lungs about the latest detail of whatever ongoing outrage I’m supposed to be all worked up about, and all the limited hangouts, and memory-holing, and smoke- and-mirrors and dog-and-pony shows being desperately presented by people from all quarters. Not that there is any shortage of outrages to be all worked up about. It’s just that we are in one of those phases where we are being barraged with so much random online messaging (and, let’s face it, bullshit) that people can’t even think anymore, and are “distracted from distraction by distraction,” as one old British banker once put it, so it will be nice to get a little break from all that.Subscribe

OK, here’s what I want your feedback on.

Be seeing you
