2021 Bitcoin Prediction
2021 Gold Prediction
2021 Silver Prediction
“The computational power that runs Bitcoin – it’s running at about 160 quintillion calculations per second – is beyond the reach of any government or group of governments. It has achieved escape velocity.” – Max Keiser
Bitcoin was created in 2009 by cypherpunks and everyone who was objecting to central bank authoritarianism. They got together and said, “We’re going to make our own money. It’s called Bitcoin. It’s passive resistance and it’s going to topple the central bank empire and central banks around the world.
Max Keiser prediction #1 for 2021:
One of the major central banks in the world will collapse in 2021.
The central banks are leveraged at 50, 60, 70-to-1.
They’re leveraged more than Long Term Capital Management was at its highest point of leverage. Jim Rickards knows about this stuff.
When the first central bank collapses it will start an avalanche out of fiat money and paper money. The top beneficiary of that will be Bitcoin and it will be the catalyst for Max’s price prediction of $220,000 per Bitcoin for 2021.
Bitcoin is a protest against fiat money and central bank authoritarianism.
The way the protest works is that the cypherpunks and everyone involved with Bitcoin made our own money that has nothing to do with the state.
It’s the first time that money has been made separate from state. It’s never been done before. Ever.
It’s been launched and working for 10 years and the nation state as it has been known is going to dissolve.
Banks are going to dissolve and fiat money is going to go the way that all fiat money has gone.
Not a single fiat money system has lasted. They’ve all their gone to zero or else lost 99% of their purchasing power.
So, it should be no shock to anyone that the U.S. dollar will go to zero.
The British pound is in horrible shape and is definitely going to go to zero.
As the central bank fiat system fails it will be Bitcoin that benefits.
GREED INTO ALTRUISM
Bitcoin is this magical metamorphosis that turns greed into altruism.
Bitcoin attracts a lot of greedy people who want to make money trading on it. But as they are they’re de-funding central banks and de-funding fiat money and de-funding the nation state.
So, it’s an interesting technology that’s turning greed into the hardest money in human history.
The protest against the central banking system needs the greedy folks.
People come for the greed and stay for the revolution.
BITCOIN IN A BUBBLE?
Bitcoin is in the opposite of a bubble.
The biggest bubble in the world, by far, is the bond bubble. It took 300 years for the bonds in the UK to get this extended and into a bubble, and it took over 240 years for the U.S. debt market to get into this bubble.
The bond market is so far into a bubble that interest rates in the sovereign bond market have gone negative.
Not even Bernie Maddoff got his Ponzi scheme into that level of extremity.
The U.S. bond market and the sovereign debt market is by far the biggest bubble.
After that, the U.S. dollar fiat currency is in an enormous bubble. Some property markets are in a huge bubble.
Probably the one asset in the world that is undervalued the most is Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the cheapest asset you can buy.
Paul Tudor Jones said it’s the fastest horse in the race, and that Bitcoin is mispriced. What he means is that it’s one of the only assets that’s not in a bubble, and it’s one of the most undervalued assets in the world today.
CENTRAL BANKS IN A BUBBLE
Central banks are in a bubble. If you have 50, 60, 70 Xs leverage it’s an enormous bubble.
Stocks are trading at 1,000 times earnings and 1,500 times earnings.
Tesla stocks are trading at over 1,000 times earnings.
Any standard evaluation puts that in bubble territory.
You have a lot of asset bubble going right now that are fuelled by central bank printing.
M2 money supply is growing at 20% per year and Bitcoin’s rise in price is the only thing rising as the M2 money supply grows. It’s the only asset with true price discovery.
Gold does not have good price discovery because it’s been almost 100% financialized. That’s why it’s lagging and isn’t a good store of value in this money printing environment.
JPMorgan just paid a huge fine for manipulating the gold price. They paid a $1 billion fine and paid that fine by making money manipulating the price of gold.
The money printing is also the reason why Michael Saylor says the real inflation rate is 20% per year. It’s not 1.5% per year that the governments publishes as the official number. The 1.5% per year doesn’t take into account the massive asset valuation that’s in bubble territory. The number they put out is convenient for those doing the money printing.
Is it a coincidence that those printing the money are the ones benefiting from the printing of the money?
No. It’s by design. It’s incredibly corrupt.
The true inflation is 20% and Bitcoin is true price discovery that’s outside the government and central bank’s control.
The 20% growth in money supply is resulting in a hyper-inflationary collapse of the U.S. dollar against Bitcoin.
Price discovery in the market is completely manipulated. The signals are manipulated. The only asset that isn’t manipulated and controlled by governments and the central bank is Bitcoin.
False! Bitcoin is not a Ponzi scheme. Bitcoin is a reverse Ponzi. In a Ponzi Scheme the base has to constantly get wider. There has to be new investors to pay off the investors that got in early.
It’s named after Charles Ponzi for a stamp scheme, and it’s used to describe Bernie Maddoff, who paid investors a return using new money coming in from new investors.
Bitcoin is the opposite.
Every four years the amount of new Bitcoin mined shrinks by 50% in what’s called a “halving”.
We start with 50 coins on the distribution per mining output every 10 minutes, and then we halved that down to 25 per 10 minutes being mined. Then it was halved down to 12 1/2, and then a halving down to 6 1/4.
The amount of money entering the system is shrinking not growing.
It’s not a Ponzi. Anyone who says that doesn’t understand what Bitcoin is, hasn’t looked at it for more than 5 seconds or else just accepts someone’s tweet as a fact without looking at it.
THE ONLY THING GOING FOR IT IS A RISING PRICE?
Bitcoins is the best savings technology ever invented. It’s the best hard money ever invented.
Humans like to trade and they want a hard money for trade.
Gold was a great way to trade in that you had a store of value. You would trade something for gold and then re-spend that gold for something in the future.
People have tried to do that with beads and shells and other things.
Gold was doing a pretty good job for a long time and then Bitcoin came around and is doing a better job.
Bitcoin is more scarce than gold so it’s “harder” than gold.
Bitcoin will only have 21 million coins mined. Ever. Gold is inflating at 2% per year as more is mined. And if gold goes up in price then the technology to mine more gold will also increase. The supply of gold grows.
Bitcoin can’t be confiscated or censored by a government. It’s more portable than gold and more divisible than gold.
That’s why it does a better job at being hard money than gold does.
The price of Bitcoin is rising because of the quadrillions of dollars that are being printed and are destroying people’s lives and economies. The money printing is creating income gaps that are creating social unrest.
And every time the banks make a mistake the governments covering is up by printing more money.
Just like all the other countries in the G20. If they make a mistake with their policy they just paper it over and print more money.
That creates more gubazillionaires at the top that control more of government. So the corruption goes wider.
The people at the bottom get poorer as their purchasing power is weakening.
The people printing the money and putting it in their own pockets don’t care.
TETHER BUYS WHEN NEW BUYERS STOP BUYING?
Tether is only 7% or less of the market. It’s not a factor in the Bitcoin price.
Tether was brought about in 2017 as a US dollar surrogate to have a way to buy in and out of Bitcoin .
It’s basically a money market, which has a use. If you’re in the stock market you can put your money into a money market until you choose a stock. Tether is like any stable coin in that it acts as a money market to go in and out of Bitcoin.
But money markets have counterparty risk. So does Tether, and so does every stable coin. So does every security in the world. So does every exchange in the world.
The only thing without counterparty risk is Bitcoin.
Gold has counterparty risk in that it costs money to verify it, transport it and store it.
Max owns a lot of gold and silver. He started buying when gold was $400 per ounce. He says it’s actually not that easy to sell it and to transport it. It’s not an easy asset class to deal with. (I’ll ask him whether he means specifically large amounts of gold, so it works for banking but is harder for individuals in large amounts.)
HISTORY OF BITCOIN
The cypherpunk 20 year history that preceded Bitcoin is well documented. There were four or five attempts to create a bitcoin.
Back in 1995-96 Max created the virtual specialist technology. He has a patent on the first digital currency in the world. He sold it to a company on Wall Street which uses it to make hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue on that patent.
Max a very familiar with the history and technology and software, but he isn’t the guy who wrote the White Paper in 2008.
“Keiser Soze” is that thing you never saw coming but obliterates everything in its path. Max kinda likes that name. Haha.
CAN GOVERNMENTS STOP IT?
There is nothing the government can do to stop Bitcoin.
There’s no way to regulate it. That’s what the government is finding out.
They would love to regulate it and stop it but so far they’ve been unsuccessful.
The computational power that runs Bitcoin – it’s running at about 160 quintillion calculations per second – is beyond the reach of any government or group of governments.
It has achieved escape velocity.
Maybe five or six years ago, if governments had really wanted to they may have been able to thwart bitcoin, but now it’s too late. It’s simply reached escape velocity and there’s nothing any government can do.
Plus, there are people inside government that are now pro Bitcoin.
There’s a Senator from Wyoming who wants to make Wyoming a bitcoin state and the state has a bitcoin bank.
It’s made inroads in the U.S. Senate.
There are members of Congress and the Senate who are not going to fight Bitcoin because they own it and benefit from it. They’re not motivated to thwart it.
It’s acting as the fifth column inside government.
Max’s prediction #2: In the next few years the IRS will offer Bitcoiners a 90% reduction in taxes if they pay in Bitcoin, because the government will be woefully underrepresented in Bitcoin.
The U.S. hasn’t even joined the race. (The phrase “the race” is in the song Bitcoin Barbarians.)
In the 1960s the U.S. entered the space race to compete with the Soviet Union to get out into space. And there was this “Sputnik Moment”.
The U.S. hasn’t had its “Bitcoin Moment” yet. It’s still letting other countries race ahead and potentially become the richest country in the world.
Prediction #3: The U.S. will set up a policy to mine Bitcoin because they want the U.S. to be number 1.
ANY BITCOIN PRICE CORRECTIONS COMING?
The corrections in Bitcoin have been getting successionally less and less.
It has gone through three 80 – 90% corrections since 2011. Since then it’s been less and less and less.
We just had a 20% correction. That correction is over and the price is going higher.
The bitcoin market has become a lot bigger so the corrections will become more in the 10 – 20% range.
The biggest money funds in the world are on the sidelines with an enormous amount of money, waiting to get in.
That’s only going to get bigger and bigger.
Sovereign Wealth Funds are going to come in.
(Here’s an article re: big players starting to buy and hold bitcoin, in USA Today published Jan. 8, 2021 )
The corrections will become less and less.
BITCOIN AND POLITICS
Bitcoin intermediates the nation state. It’s not right or left – it’s on its own vector, it’s on its own path.
It doesn’t need politicians.
You’re free to trade with anyone. It’s the hardest money in the world.
Fiat money promotes war. Paul Krugman said in the New York Times that the U.S. dollar is backed by men with guns. It’s backed by violence.
Bitcoin is peace.
It’s unconfiscatable so you can’t use coercion.
You can’t confiscate it or coerce it out of someone. You can only get Bitcoin through peaceful trade.
Hopefully it moves us away from fiat money backed by violence and appeals to the angels of our better nature.
MONEY AND FEAR
Bitcoin gets rid of the fear that holds us back, and replaces it with love. Then we can move on to an evolutionary step towards greater good.
That’s what we need to do.
Max started buying Bitcoin at $1 per bitcoin, ten years ago. He and Stacy’s HODL is a number followed by a lot of zeros.
A book Max loves is “Critical Path” by Buckminster Fuller.
Fuller speculated about a money made of energy by energy, and decided to only do things that benefit the world as a whole.
Max read that book in the womb.
Max was born breech so he came out basically telling the world to kiss his ass because he was busy trying to finish his book. :)
2021 BITCOIN PRICE FORECAST
Max’s forecast for 2021 is a U.S. price of $220,000 per bitcoin.
He thinks there was be a $4Trillion market valuation.
That’s not quite half of gold’s valuation.
The catalyst for the price rise will be a major central bank failing plus the Weimar Republic level of money printing.
The supply of new bitcoin available to mine gets cut in half every four years.
That means the supply is shrinking as the demand from big money people is entering the market.
Right now there are 900 bitcoin per day being created and the demand is over 4,000 per day.
The amount circulating is shrinking because institutions are coming in now and gobbling it up.
Prediction #__ (where were we?) – In 2021 we’re going to see gap pricing. Once the price goes above $40,000 the panic buying from institutions will come in and the price will jump up in larger leaps. The corrections will be in the 10 – 20% range and then up again.
The $220,000 prediction will probably be seen in October or November.
The bank in the deepest quagmire is the ECB.
The ECB will be dissolved. It will be replaced with something else without saying it crashed.
They’ll make something with maybe $100 trillion credit facility with Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) from the IMF and they’ll try to bail out the eurozone.
They’ll call it a “Reset” or a “New Bretton Woods” and one of the banks will be dissolved.
Just like in 2008 where they all got into a room and then the investment bank Bear Stearns was sacrificed to take one for the team.
Gold will go above $3,000 per ounce in 2021.
Gold is not going to go away. It is still the primary asset for central banks.
Gold is the base layer money that runs the global economy.
In 2011 Max and Keiser had a campaign called “Crash JP Morgan Buy Silver” (here’s the song “Crash the Banks” based on that campaign), that drove silver up from $15 to $50 US per ounce. It fell and now is back up to pushing $30.
Max’s forecast for 2021 silver is well over $100 per ounce.
Gold, Empires and the Rise of Bitcoin
Here’s the rub about money: If we all spent lavishly every day there would never be a dark, stormy economic winter.
Economic summer forever for all of us.
If we all spent all we had and took turns working and resting then the engine of commerce would be a perpetual motion machine.
But that doesn’t happen.
No matter what system is put in place and what the leaders of the policy promise, we never experience eternal summer.
Why is that?
We can’t live in perpetual summer season the “we” always changes.
Like machines with wheels we spin along as families, communities, businesses and nations. Each wheel is capable of refueling and rolling along in a sustainable rhythm of going out to get resources and back home for rest. Each closed system is a wheel interlocking with bigger and smaller wheels.
The wheels made up of groups of ”we”s are all interlocking.
Empires are composed of smaller wheels joining their power together to move as one.
One smaller wheel rests while the other works and this keeps the system machine going. We all sacrifice for the greater good in turn, and we all come out ahead individually. This system doesn’t fall apart.
But when economic summer is going along at a good clip, one part of the “we” of the wheel figures out they can get away with taking more and giving less. If one part stops sacrificing for the greater good the machine keeps rolling. But that change is what brings the fall of the system. Other parts step up to fill the gap but they lose energy after a time. When one part doesn’t give all to the system and starts to protect it’s own interest instead then the machine stops being perpetual. Human nature brings individuals with power or opportunity the chance to loot the system and get away with it.
If one part of the system steals then it stops being a perpetual closed system.
A slow down in spending means a slow down in sales. So less people are hired and less things are made to sell. Less schools are needed to train people and less raw materials are needed to make things.
It all slows down.
That one part stops being part of your “we”, and the machine as it moves into the future cannot survive.
If we can trust that we are a “we” then one part prepares for the winter of rest and rebuilding while another wheel in the machine is in summer. Empires thrives by sharing resources this way.
Winter is a time to slow down, evaluate, remove things that are draining the system, and prepare for a new and better spring and summer. It’s time to learn new skills and bond with “we”.
Without a winter we burn out with endless consuming and expansion, and run out of the resources to keep ourselves going. The system ends from exhaustion. It is invaded without or within and has no resources to endure the winter storms.
Fooling a group into expending energy without depleting your own is a form of covert warfare.
STORIES AND TRUST
Our social selves believe that what is happening now will continue to happen, especially when it is summer. We are tempted to spend resources on artificially prolonging the summer while being fooled into thinking it’s eternal summer. That we fixed the system. Our “we” has the best truth and light. We want to believe we are right and that the world is fair. We tend to believe that whatever the “we” is, that it is good and right for the simple reason that we are a part of it.
When one individual stops looking after the group and instead looks after their own needs, then the group suffers and just that individual benefits.
Those with access to the money tend to be the first to loot in this way.
The looting individual who benefits will want to keep the machine going as long as possible so they can keep what they’ve taken without knowledge of the group. They will hide their benefit. They will cover their tracks so no one can tell it was them who gained personally.
They will continue to tell the group that all is well.
They will lie.
They will tell the group that it’s still summer.
Here is where propaganda comes into a larger wheeled machine.
This is where “we” are now.
MEDIA AND MESSAGES
If a form of media is trusted to give unbiased news then it can be used to tell the group all is well, with data and graphs and crafted stories.
Another way media can be used is to spend time entertaining and distracting from information that would benefit the individual. To confuse facts or stories or use trusted figures to calm and seem in control.
Who owns that form of media? Who benefits from what is being said?
If everyone in a functioning system does their part then the group, nation or society continues on and on, through gentle cycles of work and rest, growing at a sustainable rate.
One party would create as another consumes, and then switch places so each benefits and each works. One sector in summer and another in winter, as intertwined wheels that take turns driving the machine perpetually. A kind of yin and yang. Gaining energy in the motion and rest and tension and release of the sun’s rays in day and night rhythm. What I call the Rod and Ring.
But some larger wheels might not be doing their part. Maybe they are looting and saving for winter while telling you it’s eternal summer. Maybe they don’t care whether the family, company or nation’s machine keeps going.
Maybe they are thinking of creaating a new machine without you.
In that case they would benefit by having your “we” continue to expand into a pretend summer as they quietly loot and prepare to leave and make a new “we”.
They will not give up their turn in order to keep the machine going because they don’t care if the machine rises or falls.
It only needs to keep running until they can drain the last drop of benefit from it. Then they remove their part at the last minute to avoid being scratched when the whole system crashes down.
We’re free to be part of whatever “we” we choose, and to change groups and alliances, but the deception comes when one part lies and pretends all is well while quietly looting before running from the rubble.
EMPIRES AND “WE”
Empires rise and fall because the “we” of each group changes. Humans are human and while an individual can be trustworthy and usually is, the odds of a deceiver in the group rises as the group grows. It’s math. It’s predictable.
Big wheels. Little wheels.
The difference now is that our world used to be mechanical, like the printing press and cars and manufacturing lines, but now we are electrically connected. The world is a field of light and information that is on one moment and then off. Everything happens faster and more intensely than before in a mechanical world. Our nervous system is entwined with others and our media has changed with it.
The wheels are bigger now. The system is bigger and more interconnected, which means the powerful are exponentially more powerful with each rise and fall of a season.
The rises are larger each time and the falls become more and more devastating. The separation between the rich and poor grows until the poor can no longer bear it. They raise voices and pitchforks knowing there is more of “we” than “them”.
Nations are interconnected as wheels within wheels. Alliances between nations make new empires as the technology develops.
The “Great Depression” was in a smaller system than we have now. Much smaller, which would mean that the next one will be exponentially larger.
As the empires fall and rise, either renewed or else replaced, the lack of trust af the falling apart reaches the backbone of the economy.
Trust in paper and promises disappears once the looting is realized by the many of the “we”.
Hard money returns. In the past mechanical world that was the physical hardness of gold. In the new electric world the hard money will be overlaid with the trust in math. Open decentralized math.
PREPARING FOR WINTER
We have historically received news through mass media such as TV, newspapers and radio which transmits a message from one party to many viewers in a “we”.
This media can transmit unbiased news to make us aware of events. But it can also be used to persuade the many consumers to continue consuming long past the time for an individual to start to prepare for winter.
The media outlets are owned by people, and those people are part of someone else’s “we”.
Media is not the fifth estate as it once was, and it’s not unbiased now, if it ever was. Just something to be aware of. Mass media is owned by shareholders, and a company is responsible to make money. It is responsible to it’s own “we”. The owners could also use their power to persuade to the benefit of someone who either owns it or pays those who own.
The wheel of your family spins through seasons which are tied to the larger economic seasons. Be ready for a winter. The wheel of your nation is a larger one that influences your personal wheel, your family wheel. All while your empire is another even larger one spinning.
If the world goes through winter together, and tension builds as the wheels are forced against each other, then prepare for a larger, harsher, devastating winter season before a new spring arrives.
Money rulers make new machines after the present one crashes. The powerful prepare and do fine and the small wheels suffer. But if you’re aware then you can prepare for it by doing what is best for you.
Who benefits when the general members of a society take a longer turn consuming and do not save for winter?
Who benefits from an artificially prolonged summer?
Who wins when the inevitable harsher winter comes to swing back the pendulum?
Imagine a machine where each wheel, instead of interlocking, is forcing its strength against the other wheels.
Wheel grinding against wheel instead of working together to move the machine.
The most powerful wheels grind down and smash the less powerful.
Powerful wheels join together while pretending to be part of the whole system, and surprise the others by abandoning all at once or pushing so hard they explode the system to dust.
Economically that could be the crashing of the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency. The new result could bring peace or war,
First there is some tension. Slow at first, then building but still hard to see.
And then suddenly it smashes apart.
Debris and dust and nothing to trust.
The machine – the family, the community, business or society – breaks and ceases to be as it was.
But that powerful wheel will individually benefit and make it’s own new machine.
Or the few wheels who joined together during the grinding, while pretending to be separate, will now take the resources they saved or looted, and build a new machine together.
Economically, big nations have been storing gold over the last number of years. They are doing it fast and they are doing it quietly. Gold was always a store of wealth in the past when systems crashed. They seem to be turning towards it again.
At the same time the electric age has brought a hard money based on math and decentralization. There are not elite who rule with it and no one who can take it or manipulate with it. That is Bitcoin.
As the world is unravelling there are more individuals holding it. Wealthy individuals are now buying and holding larger amounts which makes it more stable. And now institutions, hedge funds, and nations are buying and holding Bitcoin.
On the other hand, the banking system is also creating digital currencies which will be backed by the nations and ultimately the central banks and gold.
The big wheels are grinding against each other now and tensions are building. Drums are beating which stir up anger and the joining together of “we” in order to keep a machine going or else to break it apart and make a new one.
Public relations is used to drum up consent.
What if the spinning wheels convinced the less powerful that all was well and they should just keep on spending? What is the message?
What is the message coming from one party, through a medium (TV, internet, newspapers), to many?
Lots of different mediums together are called media.
How much trust do the many “we” have in the message coming through?
The media is saying “Here comes summer!” “Buy, buy, buy!”. The media is offering to let you dance with stars.
They tell you who is an enemy and who is a friend. What if the less powerful wheels continued to spin and consume, and winter came suddenly when the large wheels push hard enough to smash it all down?
All the better for the wheels that prepared for winter to make a new machine after it all settles down.
Media tells a message. The media itself is the message in that it shapes how we think and what we think about.
Who is your “we”?
Heads up. How is your machine really running?
Not how the media tells you it’s running as a nation or empire, but how is it running for you as a smaller wheel within a wheel? As a family?
It is always wise to have enough supplies to take care of your family as the dust settles. – food, water, medical and care supplies for a short stay-in. Natural disasters happen.
And then spring comes.
Here’s the song “Rod and Ring”. It explains the history of moving from wooden wheels, to steel and to oil. Everything moves to the rhythm of a rod, the masculine yang force moving out to conquer and then back home again. It’s not male and female. It’s masculine and feminine. The sun and the moon. Marshall McLuhan called it hot and cold media. One pushes out and one magnetically draws you in. Combined with the electric force of the feminine yin which moves in cycles, around and around as it nurtures, heals and maintains the home. These two forces, a rod of iron going out and back, and a coil of gold or copper going around and around, combine to make electromagnetic energy. That energy is what moves us. It runs the world, really.
Combine the gold which runs the international financial system, overlayed with the wheels of groups of “we” moving together as empires, and the rod of going out to conquer and coming home.
This is the story that repeats. The wheel that spins. The history that rhymes.
Individuals can be unpredictable but groups, especially large groups, move in predictable ways given specific stimuli. Because of this we can have cycles in systems. People as groups rise and fall because humans as a group work in a mathematical fashion. That’s why there are cycles.
The sets and props change but you can see what Act you’re group is in. And prepare for how a story unfolds as all classic stories do.
Spring is glorious and it will come. You will have renewed energy and new ideas. Love. Experiences. Fresh air and expansion. It will come. As wheels spin.
My song, Bitcoin Barbarian, was written based on something Max Keiser said a few years ago. (It needs a new recording I think. :) )
Ruled and run by a dollar and a gun,
The world is spun by some media fun,
And the Ponzi game in Caesar’s name
is virtually done
There’s a new race
The Bitcoin Barbarians at the gate
Opened wide, the peasants can’t wait
‘Cause they were robbed while the bankers played
So the penny’s going to drop in this coin race.
Circus shows for the taxed and owned
Bread in Rome while they reap what’s sown
The Ponzi game in Caesar’s name
is virtually done
There’s a new race
The money of peace. I really like that idea. Thanks, Max. I loved this interview.

A Terrible Breeze (War and Social Media)
The news comes down
A little bluebird sings
Words of war
Fire and furious things
Of testing might
‘Til no patience knows
If keeping still
Still keeps you safe at home
It’s a terrible breeze
They speak of today
Of threats that used to live a world away
We all know wind
Can blow both ways
And a terrible breeze can blow it all away
A worldwide net
Sees our village grow
Until we all forget
What each one used to know
How a blind bird’s wings
Can reach the shore
And turn the wheel of peace and war
Village fools sinking down, down, down
Debt and gold wound in numbered shrouds
Deal of a life it’s bread and clowns
Can we afford another go around?
The news comes down.
It’s a terrible breeze. The news comes down.

The Gods of the Copybook Headings
words by Rudyard Kipling and music by Elaine Diane Taylor
from the album Preparing for the Fall.
The copybooks of the early 1900s gave us all the wisdom we need. The sayings that were copied are the truths, the gods, of our world. All the empires who followed the gods of the marketplace instead have fallen, and there’s terror and slaughter when the gods of the copybook headings return. The lyrics are by Rudyard Kipling. One of my gurus.

“A little grease (Greece) is floating out to sea, and little pigs (Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain) are bobbing up and down, they’ll send a storm and we’ll see, when the tide goes out who’s naked on the beach“. The world is changing as we know it.
