The Royal Flush in Spades, Part I, Introduction




Introduction




It was during the winter of 2006, when I began to prepare the people who were posting over at BNB, (Bullnotbull.com) to hear this message. Most of the people on this board were Wall Street traders, investors, gold bugs and people who had a "bearish" view. I had been following Michael Nystrom's book reviews and the comments being posted for about a year. At the time, this was a large site and comments would range in the hundreds, after each article. Of course, speculation dominated the conversation over there. The people over there were very well read, educated, a very articulate bunch of people! I was just heart broken when the board finally went down mid-April. I had "lost" a lot of good friends that I truly cared about.




Peak Oil, was not a new topic of discussion for these people and it was often apparent this was on their mind when speculating into the future. People often discussed the thoughts of James Kunstler, The Archdruid, Carolyn Baker and the like. However, when it was revealed, that I would describe a die-off having run it's course in a couple of years, did people ever take notice! Furthermore, I predicted that a quarter of world wide population could expire within a month. One half by the end of three months, three quarters by the end of six months, to finally settle at 300,000,000 within one or two years. This prediction is not an uncommon one and is probably one of the oldest going back fifty years or so, regarding the die-off.


It's one thing to talk about Peak Oil, yet another to talk about die-off. Not many people are willing to listen to arguements supporting Peak Oil, any mention of "die-off" and you've lost your audience altogether. This is why many writers refuse to refer to it, it would be shear suicidal to their career if they did so. I would attempt to break this mold, in being forceful to this group of people when discussing this matter. Although this was a "turn-off" to many on the posts, as one reader put it, "why am I preparing, if such a scenario couldn't happen?" Another reader who I suspect is a very well respected Peak Oil commentator asked, "Why must I tell him that he is going to die?" Indeed.....


Of course, this conversation drew many of the Peak Oil writers to the board, as well as many others who have been predicting dire forecasts of the future. If one were to investigate this matter by going through the achieves in the months of February and March, 2007, one can only speculate who "Kentar", "Sharon", "Rich" and "Whatmeworry", are, however, every writer does have their signature. I likened this conversation as players sitting around a high stakes game of poker with the whole casino watching on. The discussion board changed to a new format, accommodating for the "game". Being more comfortable in this new arrangement, the players began to reveal their "hands". This is where I supported my case of such a scenario in five parts, points or concepts in cards.
This new format did'nt last long, perhaps a month. As convenient and subdivided in category the new board was, it was susceptible to spam, eventually to fall victim to a hacker.


In the weeks ahead, I'll turn over one card at a time and explain what it might mean in the future. I'll also discuss for the first time how the others were playing their hands. So not only will you be getting a version of the future from me, but from three others, as they envisioned it.


Naturally, this converstation is not for the timid. The reader will have to be as bold to read it, as I am to write it. Hope you can join in!

You really know how to write a teaser. Are you sure you're not Robert Traver, risen from the dead?

(My dad was fortunate to have met him, and had a couple of his books, autographed. Unfortunately, the fire that took his house took them too.)

Thanks Far. It's a shame you weren't one sitting around this table! I have the utmost respect for my fellow players in this game, as well for many of the spectators who would contributed to this debate.

However, this became almost a two personality debate even early on. The personality Whatmeworry in the earlier post came across as a women, then in the new post changed to Lord Rothschild in the new format. At one point Rothschild had posted over thirty times in one day! ha!

One thing that Rothschild and I have in common, is that we both agree about the timing and the severity of the die-off. There was no conviencing this personality of the dynamics of die-off, "they" already knew. However, I insisted that this will come "natually" and "they" thought it'll come in an orderly matter completely controled by the elites. We both see this as an event, or a series of events.

I'll get much deeper about this as the story goes on. Hang in there with me Far, put on your tin foil hat because we're going for a ride!

Thanks, yooper

Have you read any of Derrick Jensens' books yet?

There are some things about Hope and delusions of civilization that you might like. If you want to tell the story of the coming dieoff, it's a nice hobby, but don't quit your day job. I don't mean you can't tell it, just that telling people who have created a narcissistic way of advertising to themselves about how great they are isn't going to get very far. Yup, most are going to die that are dependent upon the System unless someone comes up with a way to run the System on something besides oil and coercion (oh yeah, and somebody has to come up with about 4 more planets to put the trash on).
The liberals don't want to hear anything depressing (it interferes with the Zoloft), and the conservatives don't want to hear anything that doesn't have growing dollar signs in front of it.
Since you and I know that the future pretty much consists of depressing news and falling dollars, welcome to Frustrato-World.
I'm trying to focus on my own work and survival, but people keep bringing up inane subjects like the stock market or the war in Iraq.
Better to look at the UFO stories http://www.theparacast.com and see how frustrating that has been for 60-odd years. Then you see how useless it is to try and get anything truthful into the public eye when it doesn't sell advertising for cars.
If you want to get a message out, you have to strap it to a bus or a Humvee or paint flames on it.
First, we eat the lawyers, then the economists, then the missionaries and the salesmen that followed them to the ends of the earth.
Charlie still has a bunch of these books left

He apologized for the editing, since he was getting some dire surgery at the time and wanted it published before he possibly died. It's still a good story. He did some good work with the picture of how fast New York would burn if the power goes out.

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

yooper said...

Thanks glad you it! Stay tuned, I'll likely venture if the U.S. has seen it's "limits to growth"? This has been on the "back burner" for about three years now. Just have to find the time to present this case...

thanks, yooper
