Where’s the best place to live in light of collapse?
Ok we are 323 comments in on the collapse post and 98% didn’t bother to make even a slightly thoughtful answer. So... i guess i will be the change i want to see in the world First off, If you are the fatalistic nihlistic type you can just go where you think it will be nice to die, maybe that is with friends and family, maybe it is on a beach in mexico, or feeding your body to the last polar bear. For everyone else that still has the instinct and drive for self-preservation….
What are the best places to be leading up to or during collapse?
First let's question the question.
What difference does it make to know "What are the best places to be leading up to or during collapse"? The answer is dependent upon your own personal situation. Your personal situation has limiting factors.
Imagine you are a goat herder in Somalia during a multi year drought and there is no grass for feeding your animals. You have to sell them for dirt cheap because everyone else is also trying to sell off everything they can to get money thus depressing the goat prices further. Now the price of food is skyrocketing because there is no grass and the farmers crops failed, everyone is trying to buy up a hoard of food because everyone knows it is going to be a hard year. You manage to get the equivalent of $120USD in cash after selling practically everything you own but held onto one breeding pair of your healthiest goats you plan to use to regain a livelihood after the drought is over.
Imagine you are a billionaire with a fueled up superyacht, a helicopter, and a private plane. You have practically unlimited money, friends who are rich and connected in other countries, and a whole slew of passports, visas, and secondary citizenships, all else failing you can buy citizenships in most countries for less than $2million investment and pay a teams of specialists to expedite the process.
Your personal Limiting Factors constrain you usually somewhere between those extremes, everyone has different options. If we assume you are asking the question "What are the best places to be leading up to or during collapse" because you want to have the best standard of living available for as long as possible or simply survive the incoming population bottleneck, then the practical question becomes ...
"What are the best places to be, leading up to or during collapse, that i can get to, and establish myself in such a way that I can maintain the best standard of living possible for as long as I can or simply increase my probability of surviving the incoming population bottleneck."
It is important to ask this question to constrain the search space to the possible. It makes fuck-all difference if a somali goat herder knows about the ToP SeCret ElitE mULtibiLLioNaIre New ZEaLand sOUth IsLaNd ReDoUbt BuNkeR CoMmUnITy It is not going to help him and should not be in the search space as a survival strategy. TL:DR Constrain your search space to what is realistically achievable for you.
Start with your baseline probability of survival and increase it.
Don't let a search for "best place" stop you from achieving "good enough place" or "better than where i was previously place".
You are just trying to be an early adopter of increasing your survival probability stats before the non collapse-pilled masses.
Think of surviving bottlenecks like surviving a charging bear attack, you don't need to be able to outrun the bear, you only need to be able to outrun the slowest people in the group up to the point the bear's appetite is satiated.
What are the best places to be, leading up to or during collapse, that i can get to, and establish myself in such a way that I can maintain the best standard of living possible for as long as I can or simply increase my probability of surviving the incoming population bottleneck."
Ok now lets question the new question some more...
In order to answer this we need to untangle some of the subjective and objective elements. The objective elements of human survival are well known.
Optimizing location is a series of subjective trade-offs. There is no perfect place, they all have advantages and disadvantages. So you must decide your personal preference of which goods and bads you most desire and what your scenario expectations are of the future. Your personal preferences and collapse expectations mean the “best area” is specific to you. What you can achieve and what do you desire, find the overlap between the two, then do research to find the place that gives you the most goods with the least bads and increases your probability of survival and standard of living. One of the best strategies is to adapt yourself to your local circumstances to take advantage of the advantages, and plan ahead to mitigate the disadvantages, it is really all most people can do for themselves. Do you like not living in unbearable heat, maybe moving to greenland is NOT a better option than just buying 400watts of solar panels and attaching it to a small efficient AC that keeps one room of your house cool even during summer electricity blackouts. Most problems have multiple solutions, it is worth it to take time and think about things from an economic perspective and different time horizon perspectives. Increasing your optionality is better than narrowing it when it comes to survival, rather than the binary thinking, of “go way out into the northern mountains, farm and live in a bunker” versus “be a full time yuppie and ignore collapse issues”. Getting 2 acres you can put a cheap used rv camper on and go do permaculture on during weekends, near enough your place of employment/where you live, is probably a better plan. Indeed the small dacha’s and country gardens helped many people survive the collapse of the USSR. They would spend weekends and haul potatoes/veggies back to the city with them on the bus. Hedge your bets to cover the most scenarios including the most likely scenarios like losing your job or getting in a car accident. Survival and thriving always has and always will involve dynamic adaptation. Here is a very short list of some of potential trade-offs that you may need to think about and some brief descriptions of how they can affect things. This is NOT meant to be a systematic or exhaustive analysis, this is just me stream-of-conscious flowing on strong coffee to help others start thinking about it for themselves. There are unlimited variables
Hot versus cold
A lot of people in the forum think they it is somehow optimal for them to move to canada or greenland. Someone in eastern kansas moving to canada is not necessary, remember even in RCP8.5 business as usual scenario kansas by the end of the century still won’t be as hot as texas is currently. If there are already people living in hotter dryer areas now, then it doesn’t make a lot of sense to pack up your shit and move to the arctic, just enjoy the longer summers. At least base it on something scientific like the expectation of when that area will cross the 35C wetbulb survivability threshold, so if you live in Bandar Mahshahr then yes move somewhere else now is time.
Do you have children?
Moving somewhere may not be needed if you can live out your expected natural lifespan before things get too bad, especially with the climate. If you have children you may want to move to account for the expectations during their future lifetimes.
Wet versus dry
Wet places usually have more disease and insect loads for people and crops. In dry places it is harder to raise food, net primary productivity is usually lower, except where irrigation is available but there are usually less pests including plant fungal diseases like powdery mildew. There are Europeans living in certain parts of africa whom can only inhabit those areas currently because of antimalarial drugs, pesticides and mosquito nets. The native populations are full of people heterozygous for sickle cell which gives them resistance/immunity to the malaria, just a long view consideration.
Seasonality of rainfall
if you get all your rainfall in the summer you usually live in a region where the muggy wetbulb temps are higher and will be getting higher. You are more likely to get floods during the growing season. If you get rainfall mainly in the winter like mediteranean climates you will usually have dry summers with low humidity so deadly wetbulb temps should not be a problem but maintaining summer vegetables requires irrigation. If using rainfed agriculture you will have different crop choices, which areas grow the types of food you like?
Sunny versus overcast
Sunny areas are great for some dark skinned people and needed for vitamin D production in post collapse scenarios unless you have a good dietary source, black people in dim areas get Vitamin D deficiency diseases like rickets and have higher mortality in a hard enough crash. Gecko skinned gingers thrive better in overcast areas. Lots of people currently exist in environments they are biologically maladapted to, they are only able to live there because of modern fortified foods/supplements and medical care. Bright sunlight destroys folate (needed for reproduction) in pale people and causes skin cancer. Some people get S.A.D. and commit suicide in the gloomy winters of the pacific northwest USA. Just because a place is good in lots of other ways, you should not consider it if it will leave suicidal.
Growing season, long versus short
Long growing season usually means more heat for longer, more times to grow crops but usually less optimal conditions. Short seasons means you have to compress a lot more work in a shorter amount of time. It also means trees grow slower and growing your own fuel supply takes more land footprint while you simultaneously need more heating fuel. Places like iowa have moderate/short growing season but the high lattitude makes for long daylength which increases productivity during the moderate/short growing season. Rainfall is concentrated during the summer and soils highly fertile but it is practically one giant biocide saturated monoculture of death. It doesn’t matter if the you live in a fecund area if your future children die of bluebaby syndrome from the nitrate pollution in the well-water or end up mentally retarded from the chlorpyrifos spray drift bioaccumulating and destroying neural development in utero.
Let's be real here, most of you need to have employment to live, even as things crumble in a slow crash the vast majority will be dependent on employment and purchasing in the marketplace that which they need for subsistence. Cities are almost always better for employment. Keep in mind recently and historically, even prior to the industrial revolution, people were more often moving to cities to escape collapse scenarios in real life. You can look at africa and the middle east today. The reason is the city with its dense network effects can command food from a diversity of sources and the economics incentivize shipping surplus to cities. In times where the economics don't incentivize it governments usually seize it and send it to the cities. There is lots of historical precedent showing this, despite the general ruralist zeitgiest among collapsniks thinking that they need a homestead in the country. Employment or entitlements has been and will be the primary way people meet subsistence needs even in most collapse scenarios. Even in 3rd world areas that are experiencing famines, war, full infrastructure breakdown and conditions that are equivalent to 1st worlder visions of total collapse, people still wake up, go to work pulling weeds for the local land baron, get paid and then go buy a bowl of millet from the store.
High versus low wages.
some areas have low wages but this can come with benefits like low cost of living and people being pre-adapted to living through cooperative social behaviors and "ghetto rigging" improvisation. Last time i was in some shithole parts of arkansas i noticed just about every rural person had a decent sized garden, more than any other state i've been to. They feel compelled to share unlike some high-income places where people are clawing for money to pay rents or status seeking in a dog eat dog competitive environment. I have lived in quite a few homeless encampments and one thing that surprises people is how everyone gives away all surplus among each other, this is a paleolithic variance smoothing strategy, it is supernaturally effective and feels natural once you do it. I see it re-evolve over and over in poor people.
Education levels and sociability of the population
Is the area culturally acceptable to you? Are you acceptable to the people of the area?
There are places that may have all sorts of good qualities but they are filled with ignorant racist meth head bible belt sociopaths who will torment you out of sheer boredom. Some places get full of these people and they reinforce the ignorance and shittiness into a dominant culture that you will be fighting against if you move there. When moving to a place where you are an outsider and the community is hostile to allowing assimilation that can reduce your survival odds. See various historical genocides.
Distance from food sources
Being close to a food source like right on a farm you grow on is great but if you have crop failure you may have no draw to bring in the food. Distance should be measured multiple ways including the strength and reliability of the transportation networks and the energetic distance for transport in energy descent scenarios. Think of the number of connections in the network you can draw from. In a city there are many stores each store sourcing from thousands of farmers, if a few farmers or stores fail there are still plenty of options. Some small rural towns depopulate once the single local walmart closes. Do you trust the local weather and your own potential self sufficiency more than markets/entitlements and transport resilience? Across what scenarios and time spans?
Legal rights and entitlements availability
Solid legal rights and strong property law is great if you are part of the ownership class but when you are dispossessed, lack of legal enforcement can give you a higher standard of living because you can build shelter and do side hustles things without having "the man" come slap you down. In a place like western Europe you may have recourse to welfare entitlements and unemployment insurance payments to buy food in financial crashes and slow crash scenarios, in some countries things like this are not available, this is more important than most people think. Indeed most recent famines occur where food is present but people just have no way to buy it because they are brokeAF, you don't see rich people in those areas starving.
Water flows towards money. Just because there is a stream nearby doesn't mean you will be able to take water from it, you may need water rights while government is still able to enforce such edicts. Alternatively you may have impeccable senior water rights but the government enforcement is defunded and someone with zero water rights is upstream from you sucking the entire creek dry during a crash. Rainfall vs irrigation. rainfall allows a form of independence but having reliable irrigation can smooth out catastrophic variance in rain shortfalls. Don’t forget irrigation management was a major factor in the formation of early oppressive states.
Even prior to the industrial revolution, in cities that had Sea Ports, the population in those cities had higher survival rates than those living in the countryside during famines. Transportation is critical. More transportation modes plane, train, automobile, bikepaths, all different roads, rails, canals, rivers etc. These transports allow goods to flow, which generally helps satisfy regional shortages. Some people judge the main threat to be people taking what they have, usually it is governments doing the taking in the historical record but many are concerned with mythical hordes. If you subscribe to this paranoia about people robbing your homestead you may enjoy being as minimally connected as possible to the transport system. You must determine based on your own preferences and expectations. Good transport is a double edged sword, it means food/resources can also be shipped out of your area towards money/powerful people, remember ownership norms and enforcement rarely disappear during collapse-like periods, indeed the ownership class still sends supplies to the highest bidder which may not be you, see Irish Gorta Mor for example.
In places like london way back when they still burned wood as cooking and heating fuel there were estates just outside the city that were highly organized coppice producers that fueled the city. Wood is heavy and only so much could be carried in a cartload considering they relied on animal traction. There was a distance where bringing the wood to london to sell would not make you any money even despite you getting wood for free because the cost of the journey feeding yourself and animal took the entire value of the wood. These effects are worth thinking about across different transport scenarios. Assets become stranded and likewise things can become uneconomical to ship to you when you need things produced in the city. The wood producing estates outside london were well off financially and smaller estate size could provide higher income than the much more distant estates that were an order of magnitude larger. Transport matters, markets and trade continue to exist in practically every collapse and even in supermax prisons, expect to use markets as a survival strategy, it is more likely than you living some isolated mountain man scenario.
(the older a soil is geologically X how much rainfall it gets) is what generally determines how fertile it is. The best soils are those that are relatively new and have been subjected to just enough rainfall to match the evapotranspiration rate, this minimizes nutrients leaching out, these are the mollisols/chernozems of the prairies. Because the water is just-enough in those zones they are also right at the edge where they can have major droughts with even slightly less rainfall. Wetter areas generally have less inherent soil fertility because of more leaching of nutrients but have more room for rainfall variability without plants meeting water deficiency.
your social ties family friends locations
Having a positive social environment with people you love while just getting by, is better than doing well financially and being socially isolated, for most people. Don’t abandon good family and friends if you can avoid it, it is usually not worth it. “Social capital” has always been a key to human flourishing. Many people in the collapse of the USSR survived on “blat”, not by relocating. A real world social network for altruistic reciprocity is a survival tool.
Proximity to imperialist countries with militaries that may want/need your resources for themselves or their people
Places like ukraine, some of the best farmland in the world, a country may seem optimal in many ways but historically this advantage was noted by outsiders and it has been at the crossroads of empires which means they suffered tremendously in war. The devastation of war and imperialism negated much of the natural benefits of the area when it comes to survival rates. This is something to consider. In parts of africa there is more conflict in abundant zones with more food, outside of famine zones because paramilitaries are supported from the land there and controlling the food supply is used as weapon of political power. Concentration of resources can make areas more dangerous, it makes attacking them economical.
Mirror Trading International | Online Articles about Mirror Trading International
Mirror Trading International – Have you done a search on Google to find out about Mirror Trading International? The results are normally articles that question the existence and business of Mirror Trading International. I am not a financial advisor, so I am unable to give any advice and the following article should not be considered financial advice. I share my opinion and it is up to you to make your own conclusion. Mirror Trading International These are answers that I give people who ask the following common questions. I try to be as factual as possible, but in many cases my opinion based on logic has been added. So let’s look at the questions: Does Mirror Trading International rely on pyramid style recruitment to get new members? No, Mirror Trading International is not a pyramid scheme. Mirror Trading International has an optional affiliate program where you can earn a referral commission of 10%. Pyramid style recruitment plans are designed to attract lots of members quickly to keep the pyramid scheme afloat. If schemes cannot double their membership every month they will typically fail quicker than expected. Let me explain what a typical pyramid recruitment plan looks like: they will pay 10% direct, 5% 2nd level, 3% 3rd level, 1% 4th level and 1% 5th level. When you see this kind of plan, it is almost always a pyramid. In terms of membership Mirror Trading International has just more than 7000 members after 8 months. In the first month they had 500 members, and if they needed members to sustain the business they should have had at least 64000 by now to sustain any sort of scheme. Does Johann Steynberg have trading experience. Johann Steynberg the CEO of Mirror Trading International is exactly that, the Chief Executive Officer. To my knowledge he has been involved in investments and trading, but is not a master trader, therefore in his position as CEO he has selected the experienced traders. Johan has negotiated that these traders look after the EA Software, ensuring that the results are consistent. This question actually makes me laugh, it is like expecting the CEO of an airline to also fly the planes on a daily basis. Is Mirror Trading International registered with the Financial Services authority in South Africa or Internationally? The objective of MTI is to grow your Bitcoin, therefore all trading and balances are shown in Bitcoin, your investment is never exchanged for normal currency (FIAT) and always remains in Bitcoin. Bitcoin is not regulated as it is not considered to be electronic money according to the law. Therefore it is not possible to become registered with the authorities as they do not accept Bitcoin as legal tender. MTI would need to take deposits in FIAT currency if they were registered and then the registration would prevent them from trading in Bitcoin. Over and above that, the financial authority would not allow the type of returns that MTI gets for its members. Is Mirror Trading International operating illegally? No, they are registered as Mirror Trading International (PTY) LTD in South Africa and the Registration Number is 2019/205570/07. They are a fully legal entity and Johann Steynberg is the responsible Director, therefore should anything happen to MTI, Johann Steynberg would be solely responsible. The fact that MTI has members in over 100 countries also means that he could be summoned to any court internationally, should some type of fraud occur. The legal team of MTI ensure that MTI is 100% legally compliant. What evidence is there of real trading taking place? Mirror Trading International is prevented from showing live trades due to their licensing agreement with the EA Software providers. This is the fact that makes most investors nervous and it is good to do a risk assessment based on the historical results. The current historical results, as at 24 January 2020, utilising the EA system are as follows: Total Trading Days: 134 Total Profit made by Members (40% of the Daily Trading Results): 72.0016% Daily average Profit made by members: 0.5373% Total Binary Profit Sharing with Affiliates (20% of Daily Trading Results): 36.0008% If MTI was a scheme, 7000 members would not be sufficient to support the profits paid to date. Therefore my conclusion is that the trading is real. Profits are derived from the trading activities, and members receive personal statements the following day detailing every trade placed. These could be compared to the previous day’s trades should you wish to take the time to do this. The reality is that Mirror Trading International is going to be around for a long time and there is no need to rush in quickly hoping you are going to make something. My experience is that you will grow your Bitcoin with Mirror Trading International and even if the Bitcoin price never rises significantly above the current level your Bitcoin will be growing. In time you will have a good number of Bitcoin more than when you started, thus you will have more value as you have more Bitcoin. Therefore should the price of Bitcoin increase significantly or not, you will still have more value in your investment.
Master List Of Left-Wing Youtube AND Podcast Channels - REVISED
Master List Of Left-Wing Youtube AND Podcast Channels ***NOTE: after a discussion with the mods I’ve taken out the original note here. Suffice to say the reason I put together this revised list was to add a number of channels I felt had been unfairly excluded. I’ve taken out a few controversial channels to comply with the mods request that i do so, as well as link to OP at his request. I thank the mods for allowing me to keep the rest of the channels I’ve added to the list. Newly Added channels not on OP: Tovarich Endymion, BrendanMccooney, Red Star Video, Claudia Brown, SJW101, azureScapegoat, Benji Adam Wiskettes, DemocraticSocialist01, Comrade Hakim, FinnishBolshevik, Bat’ko The Manarchist, ProSocialism, Flea Market Socialist, KnowingBetter, and a few others! As a socialist I don't believe masterlists should constitute any kind of intellectual property that should be protected, especially in context of a masterlist that is being shared to spread awareness of leftist channels shared with the leftist community. I believe the channels I added deserve recognition. I don’t mind sharing editing with the community — let me know what you’d like to add and I’ll try my best to accommodate within the word limit here. I’ve had to take out a few of the film related channels to make room for more directly politically related podcasts. I included the Podcast section in post and just removed the NEWS section of the original post, so that can be found in the OP (link in title). Also please note that to accommodate more podcasts and other more directly related leftist channels, I’ve had to remove some more film focused channels. Those can be found on the OP. Thanks comrades. ---------- please give these channels as much help as you can by subscribing and watching their content. We need these things to expand as much as possible if we don't want to entirely lose YouTube to the far-right.

Spiral Dynamics - Crucial knowledge about the current insight on how to increase Awareness [Long but worth it]
before i start, this post is NOT intellectual masturbation, this has a practical use to athene current approach, this knowledge is CRUCIAL to the development of the app and will help a lot of people. my english is bad, i hope you can understand the idea. why i wrote this post instead of apply? i live in south america, athene say i can't apply. the post is long but i can guarantee you that this knowledge will be worth your time Having clarified that, let's start now:
basically the current insight of realtalk is ¿why people with knowledge dont do anything? It's because they dont have the awareness, and you gain awareness by projection and experience. for example a blind person can understand "table" but if you ask them "what color is the table" he will not be able to understand the question, because he doesnt have the awareness of "color". the same way, humans understand and have the knowledge of "right, wrong, responsibility, consistency" but they lack the awareness
i tried the new insight with a lot of people, "be a child in a remote village with a drought" the most common feedback i recieved was basically "oh, i just realized i am selfish and a bad person o_O" (many of them were shocked) "now i am aware of that, but i will not change, i am just like that" this is very similar to the click, is like "i am aware that logic is always the best option.. but i am just an inconsistent person" ¿why change is so difficult even when people grasp the awareness? what is the best approach to change people?
the biggest issue with most people is that they dont know what the fuck to do with their lifes, they lack direction & purpose, many people say "i am fine the way i am" because they believe on a fundamental level that they are in "the final level of awareness" so to speak. but, what if i told you that human awareness evolves following a PATH and you can determine your level of awareness based on science and facts, that way you can say "ok, i am here and i need to move to there", will that make a BIG difference?
the science that study that is called "developmental psychology", this knowledge is CRUCIAL:
"Carol Gilligan", a Psychologist did an study when she was trying to understand female morality, she asked to many woman for many years "do you think woman have the right to an abortion?" then she keep asking the same question to the same group of woman for many years to see how some of them change their awareness over time. basically she received 3 types of answers:
1-"woman have the right to an abortion because i say so and what i said is right" (selfish-ego answer) 2-"woman dont have the right to an abortion because society-moral-law-bible-family say is wrong" (social answer) 3-"woman have the right to an abortion, because if you see the problem from a logical point of view, people that want to do an abortion will do it anyway, so It's better to legalize it, that way you can do it safe for those people, in certain context abortion is very necessary, but in some context is bad" (logical answer)
She made 3 big discoveries with this study:
1-human awareness follow a certain "path" or "stages" during personal development. (me) > (others) > (logic-reality)
2-you can't go back to a previous stage. for example, a selfish person can change to a social person, but a logical person can't change to a selfish person.
3-human awareness can't skip stages. in other words, a selfish person can't just skip to be logical, he needs to have the social awareness first to then have the logic awareness. Years later 2 psychologist "Don Edward Beck" & "Clare W. Graves" did more studies about this discovery, they found out that human psychology evolve in 8 stages of awareness during personal development -each stage has a CORE VALUE that they represented with a COLOR -each stage has his own paradigms that needs to be solved to advance to the next stage. -this 8 core values represent an specific time in human history. -you can be dispersed in various stages, but there is always a stage in which you are "stuck", that is your core value. -each stage think he is right and the others stages are "wrong" or "stupid" -one of the most fascinating discovery is that human awareness evolve in an "spiral" or "cycle" between "life is about me" & "life is about others" that's why is called "spiral dynamics" or "the graves model"
this level of awareness is the most primitive one, i need food, water, warm. -people with this core value: babies, feral childs, senile people -Human history: Prehistory, caveman -less than 1% of world population-paradigm shift to stage 2: "I need to cooperate with others to increase my survival rate, i can't survive by my own"
STAGE 2 COLOR PURPLE, CORE VALUE (BELONGING)(others)
i can trust in my family & i can trust in close friends, i belong to a tribe, my tribe gives me safety, the world is a very mysterious place and the only explanation to things are superstition, magic, spirits & gods. -People with this core value: aboriginal, Shamans -Human History: first tribes -1% of world population-paradigm shift to stage 3: "if i became the leader of my tribe i can increase my survival rate"
STAGE 3 COLOR RED, CORE VALUE (SELFISHNESS)(me)
i am selfish, i want to be the leader of my tribe, i want respect from others, i want more food, i want people to obey me, i WANT things and i will use my FORCE and POWER to feed my ego. life is a battle, survival of the fittest-stronger, life is a competition, social structures based on power. -People with this core value: criminals, impulsive people, bullies, religious extremist, extremely intolerant & selfish people, Cruel people. -Human History: agricultural revolution, first empires, dictators. -20% of world population-paradigm shift to stage 4: "being impulsive and selfish has consequences to me and others, we need order, rules, morals, i need to respect others in order to survive"
STAGE 4 COLOR BLUE, CORE VALUE (COMFORT)(others)
i submit myself to the system because that gives me comfort and safety, i can't stand by myself, i respect the law, authority, religion, i never question anything because my belief are the absolute truth, i felt lazy, empty, conformist, with low Self-esteem, i felt that my life is meaningless, my inaction is ruining my life and the life of others and i felt guilty about it, i felt like a loser and selfish, i dont deserve to be loved or to be happy. -People with this core value: people with 9-5jobs, Twitch chat, religious people, Conservatives, modern society. -Human History: civilization, Modern Age, Religion, church, countries. -40% of world population-Paradigm shift to stage 5: i want to be a winner, i want success, i want to question society and improve myself, i want to be my own boss instead of working as a slave for someone, watch real social dynamics. realizing that Your childhood trauma was not your fault and You deserve to be successful, trust in your intuition and be confident again, develop your social skills.
STAGE 5 COLOR ORANGE, CORE VALUE (VALIDATION)(me)
i want validation and recognition, individualism, life is a game, i am willing to manipulate and take advantage of the rules to achieve my goals and be successful, Even at the expense of others and the environment, i only crave for good experiences, status, money, fame, freedom, fake confidence, selfishness, materialism. -People with this core value: entrepreneurs, corporations, Businessman, corrupted politicians, idols, "successful" people. -Human History: industrial revolution, Capitalism -30% of world population-Paradigm shift to stage 6: validation, money and material things will never bring me Lasting happiness, no amount of experience or drugs will never fill me, i want human connection, purpose, i want to care and give and receive love unconditionally, i am being a cancer to society and my life felt meaningless.
STAGE 6 COLOR GREEN, CORE VALUE (CONTRIBUTE)(others)
humanism, altruism, responsibility, good intentions, human relationships and human connection, selfless, empathy, compassion, fight for a good cause, abundance mentality -People with this core value: save the children, greenpeace, charity, activist, the zeitgeist movement, people in politics with good intentions, some vegans. -Human History: 1950 approximately, hippie movement, declaration of human rights, ecology, etc. -10% of world population-Paradigm shift to stage 7: Facts > Feelings, good intentions is not enough, if i really care about the world then i need to have the biggest impact, we need to value logic, facts, science and reality.
STAGE 7 COLOR YELLOW, CORE VALUE (UNDERSTANDING)(life is about life itself, reality)
systemic thinking, i value consistency, logic, knowledge, facts, science, objective reality, i want to understand the world and other people, neuroplasticity (open minded), overcome excuses, overcome cognitive biases, cognitive dissonance and ego defense mechanism, cognitive empath (you see people as humans, not as NPCs) thinking in probabilities instead of binary, be result-oriented instead of outcome-dependent, sustainability, thinking outside the box and question everything. -People with this core value: Einstein, spinoza, carl sagan, Bill gates -Human History: Right now -less than 0,01% of world population-Paradigm shift to stage 8: logic itself is not enough, you need to understand the emotional component, understand awareness and psychology-neuroscience As a whole. this take a lot of time projecting yourself in others, meditation.
STAGE 8 COLOR TURQUOISE (AWARENESS)(no core value - no attachments)
Holistic global understanding of Awareness, psychology, neuroscience, existence, subconscious, emotions and humans, rational intelligence + emotional intelligence, insane neuroplasticity, constant state of flow, true selflessness, clear mind without noise, ego death, you became water. change the world and change people, global union, you try to spread your awareness to other people (a teacher who creates other teachers), the most intelligent person on the world makes others intelligent, the most good person in the world makes others good. -People with this core value: Athene, Gandhi, Buddha, jesus less than 0.0001% of world population-Human History: Right now
¿why this knowledge is important? because the approach of the Athene therapy is wrong: "with cognitive empathy - projection exercises people get perspective and that increases his awareness" the problem is that is not that simple
i tried the "projection insight" with a RED person, he became aware that he is selfish and a bad person, But he didnt change ¿why? because on a fundamental level he believes that "life is a battle, survival of the fittest", that's why He would not help the dying child, even when he became the child in his mind, even if he is the one that needs help, he still is trapped in that paradigm, in his own words; "i dont except anything from anyone so no one should except anything from me, i am selfish, that's how i am and i will never change" he will never give a fuck about a child in africa, he need to break his RED-awareness paradigm FIRST.
cognitive empathy is the final level of awareness, trying to change low-awareness people with that paradigm is like teaching algebra to a child Who does not know how to add, First you must learn the numbers, then add, then multiply, then equations, then finally algebra. if you start by teaching cognitive empathy people can "Grasp" something, but that eventually will fade away and they will go back to his previous awareness stage in which they are stuck with his current paradigm. in fact, that is exactly what happened to the click. most people never even tried to click, because they where too attached to his current core values and they where not disposed to change in the first place.
you can't change an ignorant-selfish person into a "selfless-logic" person with just ONE insight or ONE click, you need a LOT of insights, mechanical projection exercises, knowledge and existential answers for each stage with their respective paradigm, you need to guide and influence people based on his CURRENT stage of awareness, you need to follow the stages in order because that's how the human brain works, and thats not an opinion, is a fact. self development is CRUCIAL to increase awareness until you reach the stage when you became selfless or logical.
a final example, i tried the "projection insight" with an ORANGE person, he became aware that his problems are meaningless compared to other people suffering, but he didnt change ¿why? because on a fundamental level he believes that human value is based on their success, and that every person has the life he deserves, in his own words "The child needs to overcome his own problems by himself, I am not responsible", he will never care about others until he break that individualism paradigm.
if we really want to change the world, this knowledge needs to be added in the app and in therapy
TL;DR: Awareness evolves in certain stages, each stage Has a paradigm, you can't skip stages because that's how the human brain works, therapy needs to be step by step otherwise the awareness will fade away.
In America, it's quite popular for a particular demographic of people with very little knowledge of history to refer to white people as "privileged". The idea is that no matter how shitty your historical background might be, the fact that your appearance is Caucasian suffices to ensure that you receive preferential treatment in America. This might be true, but in practice it's a phenomenon that applies to non-white Americans too. By virtue of being American they're also privileged, in the sense that they have access to more wealth and opportunities than their relatives in whatever nation they originate from. Few people wish to recognize that Western society is itself full of indigenous groups that are subject to a long history of impoverishment and oppression that reverberates through society today. The Irish, the surviving Slavic people in Germany, the Flemish in Belgium, the Scottish, even the descendants of Celts and Anglo-Saxons in England who are still ruled by a Norman aristocracy, Western society is filled with situations where one ethnic group has historically held power at the cost of another ethnic group. My country, as unexpected as it might seem, is a clear example of this rule. I'm part of a de facto underclass, primarily descended from Catholic labor migrants from Brabant and other parts of the country, who arrived in Holland during the early 20th and late 19th century. My last name refers to a small village in Brabant, where my patrilineal ancestors must have lived at some point. My father to this day uses words and phrases that originate out of Brabant. These Catholics lived as day laborers in Brabant, but agricultural innovations ensured that this was not a sustainable way to live, as the farmers who actually owned the land eventually had no more need for them. Thus the Catholic day laborers migrated to the bigger cities where employment opportunities would be available, as they didn't really have any other option. One of the most popular destinations was the harbor of Rotterdam, still the biggest harbor in the world until a few years ago. My Catholic grandfather worked there, cleaning out the storage silos, but his white male privilege proved insufficient to protect him from the lung cancer he developed from the pollution that led to his premature demise, long before my birth. The minority of people descended from Catholics in my country (33%) tend to be impoverished compared to those descended from Protestants, for reasons that I will go on to explain. In particular, those Catholics who moved to cities dominated by protestants tended to find themselves stuck in a rather marginalized position. Keep in mind that it wasn't until the liberal constitution 1848 that Catholicism and other religions were even considered equal before the law in the Netherlands, until then, we essentially had a protestant state religion. Even after 1848, massive protests erupted among protestants when in 1853 the Netherlands received its first bishops again, who led a religion that was until then legally marginalized in various ways. It shouldn't be too difficult to imagine how the position was of the impoverished Catholics who left to settle in the major cities of Holland. These were the Turks of their own day. Cities like the Hague and Amsterdam are the Heimat of a Calvinist elite, many of whom were descended from those that made a fortune through the colonies we had around the world. It was quite common for people to migrate to Indonesia, oversee the colonial project, then return home to the Netherlands as a wealthy man, occasionally bringing a native wife and mixed offspring with them. An old friend of mine is remotely descended from such a relationship, hints of which can be derived from his family wealth and his dark features. In Rotterdam, something interesting happened, as the arrival of labor migrants from other parts of the world led to the flight of upper class and middle class citizens from Rotterdam to neighboring municipalities during the second half of the 20th century. It's estimated that a third of the ethnically Dutch population of Rotterdam left, which means that those who were left are overwhelmingly ethnic minorities on the one hand and impoverished descendants of Catholic labor migrants like me on the other hand. The thing to understand here is that there is very little consciousness among these people that they are an underclass, or even why they are an underclass. Dutch history lessons we learn in school are very much aimed at generating the impression of a country that rose up in unity against a foreign Spanish king, while the origin of Dutch class differences is largely ignored. After all, if people don't know why one family is poor and the other is rich, or even how to recognize the rich families from the poor ones, it prevents excessive conflict between them. Dutch people are happy that the era of pillarisation is over, so they try not to pay too much attention to it, to avoid the consequences lingering on forever. The upper and middle classes don't wish to fuel anger and resentment in the Dutch poor, nor do the Dutch poor wish to recognize themselves as an historically oppressed underclass. It's not so much the case that people are completely blind to these differences, it's just that they don't really understand them. People recognize that Dutch people from Rotterdam are trashy, they just don't understand why. If you were to look at Dutch Catholics compared to Dutch Protestants, you would find the latter to be taller and more Nordic looking than the prior. It's not at all uncommon for men indigenous to Brabant to look like this. Would you recognize this as being a Dutch man? The 80 year war between the Spanish crown and the Dutch Republic has left its genetic imprints in the South, where many people are descended from Spanish soldiers who bedded local women. As a result, my father looks very dark for a Dutch man, as do I. His blood group is indicative of Spanish ancestry. Not so long ago, an article was published on a Spanish soldier who impregnated a few local women in Brabant and went on to have more (presumably) illegitimate children in Germany. His genetic legacy can be found in a rare form of heart disease common among his descendants. He is hardly the only one who left his genetic footprint. It's thought that the Flemish word estaminé for a cafe, which is also occasionally used in some places for a brothel, derives from Spanish soldiers who would ask "esta mineta?" meaning "are there girls here?". This is of course denied by those who find such history a little embarrassing. If you were to see me, you wouldn't recognize me as Dutch, the stereotypical image of a Dutch person in the eyes of tourists is more similar in appearance to someone from Denmark. If you want to find Dutch people who look genuinely Nordic, you'd have to look at ethnic Frisians. In particular, West Frisia, a part of the province Noord Holland would be a good example. Long ago, ethnic Frisians settled down there to farm the land. The rural villages there still have a population of men and women descended from these Frisian farmers, they almost universally tend to have blue eyes and blonde hair and tend to look quite attractive. In practice, they tend not to be very intelligent however, suicide rates among the youth are very high and they spend a lot of time partying and living empty lives, to the degree that people made documentaries about them. In other words, if you were an American confused about his heritage and did a 23andme test that discovered you to have Dutch ancestry, that might seem nice, but in practice, it doesn't really give you a lot of insight into the lives of your Dutch ancestors. It's useful to know their religion and to know the region they lived in, to gain some sense of insight into the kind of people these must have been and the kind of lives they must have lived. In the 19th century, people were very much aware of these differences. In Limburg, there was a strong movement to leave the Netherlands, some wanted to join Belgium, others wanted to join Germany. In the end, none of these attempts proved successful, despite their popularity among all classes of the population. You would imagine that Dutch people would know about this, but outside of Limburg, most have no clue. Similarly, until this day, it's quite popular for Catholic elderly in parts of Zeeuws Vlaanderen, to raise a Flemish flag, as in reality they are ethnically Flemish, having been conquered by the Dutch Republic half a millennium ago. It should similarly come as no surprise that the hero of Dutch white trash angry at our political elite, Geert Wilders, originates from Limburg. He receives support mainly in impoverished parts of Limburg, but also among white trash in Rotterdam and other cities. Look at this map and you will see a small but noteworthy correlation between the number of Wilders voters and the percentage of Catholics in a municipality. The people who vote for him are people who take great pride in the Netherlands, not realizing that the Netherlands is actually a project that was founded by elites who turned their ancestors into an oppressed underclass. As Karl Marx would say, his supporters have no class consciousness. This is something I wish to elaborate upon now. How was the Netherlands born, how did this country come into existence? If you were to pay attention in history class, you would receive the impression that we were simply all upset about being ruled by a foreign king. In reality, this was not the case. Back in those days, ethnic pride as we know it today was not a very relevant phenomenon, nationalism is a 19th century left wing ideology. It was especially not relevant among the aristocracy who were most directly responsible for the revolt that led to the birth of the Netherlands. The motto of the Dutch house of Orange that led the revolt and continues to rule this country to this day isn't Dutch, it's French. William of Orange barely even spoke Dutch, having learned the language as a second language when he studied in Brussels. He was born in what is today Germany, in the Duchy of Nassau. No, this war had little if anything to do with the kind of ethnic conflict that led to the independence of Ireland, the unification of Italy and Germany or the dissolution of the Austrian-Hungarian empire centuries later. This was about power and religion. As you might recall, the popular issue at that time was the conflict between Catholicism and Protestantism in its various incarnations. The Dutch aristocracy was primarily composed of Calvinists. What's worth noting about the Reformation and the enormous bloodshed that accompanied the rise of Protestantism, is that the situation is a bit more complex than a power-hungry dogmatic Catholic church that wanted to dictate what others should believe and oppress those whose opinion happened to differ. Whereas Erasmus and even Luther raised some reasonable complaints against the Catholic establishment, the Protestant reformer whose creed would come to inspire the Dutch aristocracy led the type of movement that would remind you and me of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq: A radical fundamentalist movement that creates cruel bloodshed anywhere it goes and sees all moderates as apostates who might as well be slaughtered in its effort to recreate the kind of situation that existed hundreds of years ago back when the prophet lived. I am talking here of course about Calvin. Us Dutch people are not taught about the kind of insane figure he was, as the majority of us are part of churches that were inspired by this madman. You don't berate your own ancestors after all. Calvin succeeded in creating a theocratic system in Genève, where he implemented a prohibition on public shows and entertainment. Musical instruments were subject to a prohibition that would last for the next 200 years. He founded a consistory court, where a number of religious elderly preachers would dictate everyone's behavior and cruelly punish those who misbehaved through torture and caning. In 1545, he immolated 20 people accused of witchcraft. He also had his opponent Michael Servet immolated over theological differences on the nature of the trinity, so this was certainly not some kind of advocate for religious liberty. The idea Calvin behind all of this was to create a kind of society where people behaved as they do in heaven. Catholics in his era would have looked at this social experiment the way most Muslims in the Middle East now look at the Islamic State, as a frightening cult that has to be destroyed. You might imagine that this was normal in its historical context, but people were quite shocked by the utopian experiment that was going on in Genève. Polite letters from Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto that invited the government of Genève to cease their experiment and rejoin the mother church had no effect. Thus, when in 1566 in the low countries that were at the time still Spanish possessions, masses of his followers rose up and began to destroy various statues of saints in Catholic churches, it shouldn't be hard to imagine that many people would have been rather worried about these events. Tensions in what is now the Netherlands progressively worsened, until finally, the Spanish decided to seize the property of Dutch Calvinist aristocrats, who fled on boats to the sea and the forests, turning into a kind of marauding warlords that terrorized the Dutch population. They received the tacit support of the English queen Elizabeth, the daughter of the previous king Henry VIII who earlier decided to start his own church after being refused permission to leave his wife. The English Queen of course benefited from harming these competing Catholic empires that would have seen her as an apostate, although she had to limit her support to the degree that she could still deny it. These marauding warbands composed of plundering Calvinist aristocrats are today seen as heroes in the Netherlands, referred to as "Geuzen". These were however not very nice people, especially not towards the poor Catholic peasants who lived in the Netherlands at the time. Their typical behavior was to plunder and rape the poor. It was inevitable that as these bands of Calvinist aristocrats grew, plenty of locals inclined to rape and plunder became more than willing to join them. Until this day, the Catholic church recognizes 19 martyrs in Gorcum who died after refusing to renounce their faith. Not a whole lot is known about the geuzen today, but these were the rebellious nobles that William of Orange allied himself to. The victors of history are not inclined to write down all the atrocities they engaged in. William was a bit of an opportunist. He was born as a Lutheran, converted to Catholicism to receive an inheritance as an 11 year old, then became a Calvinist decades later in 1573 after the insurrection was well under way. Eventually after sufficient bloodshed, the revolt against the Spanish crown proved successful. It's not so much because the revolt was so popular among the general people. The first two invasions of the Netherlands by William of Orange were a failure. In both cases he expected that the general population would rise up in revolt to support his mercenary army, but in both cases, the public did not rise up. The revolt did not just depend on mercenaries, it also depended on French Calvinist foreign volunteers, led by William's brothers to intervene on his behalf. It's not coincidence that we refer to the war as an "eighty year war". It's named such because it took a very long time for these Calvinist aristocrats to carve out their own territory, but eventually it worked. The Netherlands now became an odd kind of Calvinist republic, ruled by what is today the Dutch royal family but back then a family that held a de facto hereditary position within a Republic. Seven provinces with a Calvinist population received representation from the highly decentralized confederation. Because the revolt had been successful however, the Dutch republic had also inherited some territory that served as a buffer zone with its neighbors. What places are these? Parts of Flanders, modern day Brabant as well of parts of Limburg and some small fragmented regions that are today part of Belgium and Germany. Being populated almost entirely by Catholics, these places received no political representation in the confederation, but were instead administered directly as some sort of colonies. They were subject to high punitive taxation, serving as cash crops for the government. And so it happened, that as Calvinist elites in Holland reaped a fortune for themselves with their oversea empires, the Catholic parts of the country remained impoverished. Between 1650 and 1726, the percentage of Catholics in the country declined from 47% to 34%. Why did this happen? Because life as a Catholic sucked. Whereas the Dutch government paid for the Calvinist church's expenses, Catholic priests had to be sustained by their fellow Catholics and their congregations had to be held in secret. Government jobs were off limit, as was membership of any guilds. Thus in practice, Catholics were either part of the land-owning nobility, or part of the working poor. There was no real option through which to escape from poverty. It shouldn't come as a surprise that in 1950, one could still see a strong correlation between poor municipalities and Catholic municipalities. In the same manner as wealth is passed on from generation to generation, so is poverty. So, with all of this knowledge in the back of my head, you can see I am a bit ambivalent about being Dutch. Dutch is ultimately a synthetic identity, created by an aristocracy of religious fundamentalists that carved out a territory for themselves near the delta of two rivers, after they had found themselves sentenced to death in absentia and their property revoked. Here they created a theocratic state, where the pursuit of wealth was a fundamental priority for people who believed that wealth was one of the few signs that might help them deduce that they were probably predestined to go to heaven. People in large parts of the Netherlands found themselves part of this new religious experiment against their will. You could consider the Netherlands a kind of Saudi Arabia that's left to evolve for 450 years. To declare myself Dutch inevitably means ignoring a conflict between my Catholic background and my Calvinist background. It was only halfway through the 19th century, when the Dutch king was forced to accept a constitution in 1848 by being blackmailed with his homosexuality, that the discrimination faced by my ancestors from the Dutch government came to a formal end. Learning about Dutch history in an effort to take pride in a Dutch identity mostly means looking over the big underlying conflicts within Dutch society. You're not always descended from the winners of history, you're often also descended from those who saw no other option but to accept whatever new situation was forced upon them. So what am I then? That's difficult to answer. It's silly to imagine you can choose your ethnicity, but my identity as being Dutch is ultimately a fleeting concept. There was no such thing as the Netherlands 500 years ago, there won't be such a thing 500 years from now either. Many of those we call Dutch today were called Frisians once before the republic came into existence. I mostly feel more interest in a pan-Germanic cultural identity that us Dutch, Belgians, English, Germans, Austrians, Swiss and Scandinavians share together. The boundaries are inevitably arbitrary, as the Suebi who settled in Portugal, the Normans and Lombards who took over Italy, the Franks who become the French, even the Vandals who settled in Northern Africa, are ultimately Germanic too. Similarly, just as I probably have some Spanish ancestry and thereby perhaps even Moorish ancestry, many Germans have some Slavic ancestry. I hope to write a post at some point in the future to outline some of the aspects of the pan-Germanic identity that lead to our cultures having certain similarities we don't have with non-Germanic cultures.
