James Howard Kunstler and John Michael Greer

John Michael Greer, an old friend of the podcast, blogs at Ecosophia, subtitle, Toward an Ecological Spirituality. JMG has been an astute observer of the Western world’s arduous economic and cultural descent, and is the author of many books, both novels and non-fiction, including Green Wizardry, After Oil, The Wealth of Nature, and Not the Future We Ordered. Star’s Reach, is a novel set 400 years ahead in America’s neo-medieval future. We chat about his latest book, coming out this spring, The King in Orange, a meditation on the relationship between archetype psychology and the occult as acted out in politics and culture.

The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger.

    Apneaman is a closet homosexual himself, he talks about nothing else.

    In the case of TalmudTurk, that means a mouth full of sperm.

    “The world is dangerously dependent on Taiwan for semiconductors”

    https://www.scmp.com/tech/big-tech/article/3119321/world-dangerously-dependent-taiwan-semiconductors

    “By dominating the outsourcing of chip production, Taiwan is potentially ‘the most critical single point of failure in the entire semiconductor value chain’”

    Fascinating info if you know that Taiwan is preparing to declare itself independent of China, a move China has always said it could trigger an invasion.

    Consequences: the world would be without microchips, if it would retaliate against China for the invasion. Already the global car industry is suffering supply shortages.

    Another fun fact: Taiwan is for 100% dependent on delivery of chip machines from AMSL from the Netherlands, that enjoys a global monopoly on these key machines. The EU already pouring tens of billions into the expansion of a European homegrown chips industry from 10 to 20%.

    “[Taiwan’s Representative to the US] Hsiao’s invitation to Biden’s inauguration, taken together with Blinken’s language at the confirmation hearing, indicates that the Biden administration is willing to adopt a large chunk of the Trump administration’s Taiwan policy.

    While in office, Pompeo pushed back against China and acted as a guarantor to Taiwan — Beijing viewed him as an outright enemy.”

    “The crisis of American power: How Europeans see Biden’s America”

    https://ecfr.eu/publication/the-crisis-of-american-power-how-europeans-see-bidens-america/

    European Council of Foreign Relations:

    SUMMARY
    1. Most Europeans rejoiced at Joe Biden’s victory in the November US presidential election, but they do not think he can help America make a comeback as the pre-eminent global leader.

    2. Europeans’ attitudes towards the United States have undergone a massive change. Majorities in key member states now think the US political system is broken, and that Europe cannot just rely on the US to defend it.

    3. They evaluate the EU and/or their own countries’ systems much more positively than that of the US – and look to Berlin rather than Washington as the most important partner.

    4. There are geopolitical consequences to American weakness. A majority believe that China will be more powerful than the US within a decade and would want their country to stay neutral in a conflict between the two superpowers. Two-thirds of respondents thought the EU should develop its defence capacities.

    5. There is a great chance for a revival of Atlanticism, but Washington cannot take European alignment against China for granted. Public opinion will have a bigger effect on the relationship than it once did, and needs to be taken into account.

    1. Correct
    2. Correct
    3. Correct (well, Berlin AND Paris)
    4. Correct
    5. Correct, we don’t want to break with the US, instead we want to get the upper hand in America and be its protector (of European America), eventually and regain massive influence in a Balkanized USA, approaching pre-1776-levels and as such restore pre-1939 European global grandeur.

    There may be 500 Jews in the Philippines today, which is 0.000005% of the population. No problem. The Chinese/Filipino families own all of the major corporations here.

  20. Biden's hairplug on Wed, 10th Feb 2021 4:47 am 

    “Super Jews will run (continue) the 21st century & delete losers from the internet at will.”

    Joe Biden as the “super jews”, like apneaman/famousdr, loves him as a corrupt, useful tool to destroy white civilization, in North-America:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peF-ae2AINU

    “Joe Biden Whites will be a Minority in US by 2017 and that’s a good Thing”

    http://ihr.org/other/biden_jewish_role

    “Joe Biden Acknowledges ‘Immense’ Jewish
    Role in American Mass Media and Cultural Life”

    Will these “super jews” succeed? In North-America perhaps. But with the death of white America, comes the death of ZOG. You can’t run a superpower with negros and spics.

    And not even the death of white America is certain, as Trump was the first real monkey wrench thrown into the gears of ZOG-system and he is not done yet, causing a deep polarization of America that won’t go away, severely limiting the options on the international stage of Washington, as they always will have to fear a white insurrection and every foreign power knows that. Expect the founding of a Patriot Party that will blow up the fake democracy called Dems-Reps circus.

    How to destroy ZOG?

    WW3, that is Eurasia vs Anglosphere (causing the dismemberment of the latter), triggering CW2, causing the Balkanization of the US, highly desirable from a pan-European white nationalist perspective.

    Unfortunately, not even apneaman’s fellow super jews believe in the victory of ZOG, which should result in Global Zion:

    Applebaum – “The World Is Never Going Back to Normal”

    Other countries are learning to live without America. Biden can’t restore the pre-Trump status quo.

    Sorry apneaman, but your time is over. The 20th century may have been “the jewish century”, as this jew correctly observed…

    “WHO attacks AMERICA after Wuhan whitewash: Investigator says US Covid outbreak intelligence is ‘wrong on many aspects’ and President Biden wants ‘to look tough on China’”

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9244211/WHO-attacks-AMERICA-Wuhan-whitewash.html

    The WHO rules out escape from Wuhan laboratory and can’t identify which animal was responsible for the Covid outbreak.

    My top 2 hypothesis ranking:

    1. CIA tipped Wuhan wet market animals to distract from real source (CIA) and put the blame on “bats”. Time: Wuhan military games
    2. some pharmaceutical firm released the virus to make big bucks

    https://www.infowars.com/posts/breaking-one-america-news-offers-lou-dobbs-job-after-fox-news-fired-him-following-2-7-bn-smartmatic-lawsuit/

    America is facing a split. While libtards go along with Big Tech, white America switches to Gab, Infowars, MeWe, DLive, Telegram, Session and potentially a new Patriot Party with Confederate flag and its own MSM, like “extreme right-wing” One America News Network.

    A possible “impeachment” (from what) won’t make a difference. Trump could still be the Godfather of a Patriot Party and support some hand-picked candidate, while Trump does the rallies.

    “They say that a man was so annoyed because his in-laws voted for Biden that he stopped visiting their graves.”

    “Trump was the last wholly human statesman at the helm of the Republic, and he was defeated by the mail-in vote.”

    “Whenever Trump complained that it is open to fraud, Bezos’ Washington Post screeched, ‘President Trump has peddled false claims or imaginary threats about voting by mail’. Three days after Trump’s removal, Amazon (owned by the very same Bezos) rejected mail-in voting for its unionising employees as the mail-in vote is notoriously unreliable.”

    “Amid Biden pressure, China calls for EU autonomy”

    https://www.politico.eu/article/china-wang-yi-calls-for-eu-autonomy-competition-trade/

    “Despite being labeled by Brussels as a systemic rival, China is encouraged that the EU is emphasizing “strategic autonomy,” which would preclude Europe veering too far into a U.S. orbit to confront China. Indeed, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have been quick to snuff out the idea that Paris and Berlin would join any kind of U.S.-led democratic alliance against China.”

    More signs that the empire is fading into the dark night on a one-way ticket. One wonders what apneaman’s invincible “super jews” are going to do about it.

    clog, the Super Jews are transnational. They have no loyalty to the US or anyone else. When the empire no longer serves them they’ll move along. I’ll wager their kids are learning to read, speak & write modern Mandarin.

    You really don’t get how power works. It’s pragmatic. You have too much skin in the game, as emotional investment, to get it. Due to your strict fantasy narrative & fragile ego you’re unable to push the pause button & put yourself in the shoes of your enemy. Moreover, you have no respect for your enemies abilities – these are dangerous weaknesses.

    Your emotion blinds you. Your notion that things are wrong & need to be righted & that things should & need to be a certain way is very religious like & also sets you up for a lifetime of disappointments.

    You’re a real trooper though clog. No matter how many things don’t go according to your vision of a Euro white utopia, you always get right back up, dust yourself off & climb back on your fantasy pony. Truly you are a man of great faith clog.

  27. FamousDrScanlon on Wed, 10th Feb 2021 3:45 pm 

    OMG clog did you hear what person A just said?

    Person A “Bla bla bla something something something”

    If you think that’s earth shaking just wait until you hear what person B had to say about what person A just said.

    Person B “Bla bla bla something something something”

    Ooooo that is so important that I’m getting it carved in stone for posterity.

    Keep up the good & all important work of quoting ever utterance of persons A, B & other persons clog. Nothing is more important.

    The very fate of humanity hinges on their words.

    Gossip makes up 80 percent of our conversations

    https://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/gossip-80-percent-conversations-experts-article-1.403005

    Do Women Gossip More?

    You may be surprised to find out that contrary to popular belief, men gossip just as much as women do. For example, a study conducted by the Social Issues Research Centre (SIRC), a UK-based non-profit organization that conducts research on a variety of social topics, found that men gossip as much as women do, particularly on their cell phones.

    https://www.everydayhealth.com/healthy-living/women-vs-men-who-gossips-more/

    “Did you hear what person D said about person F?”

  28. Biden's hairplug on Wed, 10th Feb 2021 3:54 pm 

    the Jews are transnational.

    The topic was race, not nation or blood & soil. Don’t move the goal posts.

    How come Jews have so many Nobel Prizes and Africans almost none? Answer Race, something you quietly acknowledge, but refuse to admit publicly, otherwise your “race-doesn’t-exist” myth evaporates. And you need that to (attempt to) destroy us.

    “They have no loyalty to the US or anyone else.”

    True, your kind is only loyal to its own race and its “divine mission”, a global slave state, with your race on top and with the worst elements, the dregs being the slave guards. Like happened in the USSR and could very well happen in the US.

    “When the empire no longer serves them they’ll move along.”

    Translation: after pogrom #110, in the US, finally a holocaust one can believe in.

    “I’ll wager their kids are learning to read, speak & write modern Mandarin.”

    Yep they do probably because they know that their time in the US is coming to an end and they have to milk somebody else:

    http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2019-07/01/c_138187088.htm

    “Increasing number of Israelis learn Chinese for greater opportunities”

    Won’t be easy to achieve that with the Chinese. The jews rose to prominence on the back of the Romans, whom they managed to destroy by Christianizing them. You are specialized on Christians, won’t be easy to achieve a similar role in China, a new dog for our notorious parasites to jump upon.

    “You really don’t get how power works. It’s pragmatic. You have too much skin in the game, as emotional investment, to get it.”

    I perfectly understand how J-power works, but I’m not a jew and have zero interest in becoming one.

    “Due to your strict fantasy narrative & fragile ego you’re unable to push the pause button & put yourself in the shoes of your enemy.”

    Huh, on this board I’m the only one who confronts you, the rest remains silent at best or most likely is clueless. What else is new with Americans.

    “Moreover, you have no respect for your enemies abilities – these are dangerous weaknesses.”

    So far I’m not meeting much resistance from your side. Show me something to respect. So far you are merely reacting and hiding behind nicks and even lower yourself in denying your obvious identity. Now that must be humiliating for you, little pride you must have.

    I dominate the narrative on what should be your turf, about history, about renewable energy, about current affairs, where the rest dwells in collapse nihilism.

    Jews btw had never a real chance in Europe (except Russia and to a lesser extent in Britain), until your Yank water carriers catapulted you unwittingly into planetary pole position, but that position is evaporating, don’t take it from me, ask Anne Applebaum, Paul Krugmann, Bloomberg, the list goes on:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2019/01/07/the-good-news-zog-is-dying/

    “Your emotion blinds you. Your notion that things are wrong & need to be righted & that things should & need to be a certain way is very religious like & also sets you up for a lifetime of disappointments.”

    For what exactly am I blind? The J-menace? I’m not religious, just in a Darwinian fashion, I identify those who want to subjugate me and my kind and battle those. I have not a shred of a doubt that the J-problem will be solved soon, certainly in Europe. The US simply has too many enemies and is divided to the core.

    “You’re a real trooper though clog. No matter how many things don’t go according to your vision of a Euro white utopia, you always get right back up, dust yourself off & climb back on your fantasy pony. Truly you are a man of great faith clog.”

    I take that as a compliment. Not that I have to dust myself off here very much. Can’t be said of you.

    The losers of the Covid drama: travel and hospitality industry, retail (minus food).

    But… western countries are like “coiled springs”, ready to bounce back with a vengeance:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9251595/Bank-England-chief-economist-predicts-Britain-roar-spending-boom.html

    “UK is set to roar back! Bank of England chief economist declares Britain a ‘coiled spring’ and predicts a spending boom when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted after we saved £250bn during lockdowns”

    The British population had little spending opportunities for a year and has 250 billion too much money burning in its pockets to spend on pubs, cloths, holidays and what not.

    The rest of the West, same story.

    Gonna be difficult to find a cheap hotel anywhere, especially locally, because it remains to be seen if airplane travel will bounce back as well, without corona passports. Probably as of 2022, not earlier if the entire herd has been jabbed or “pricked” (“geprikt”), as we say in the Netherlands.
