The Financial Jigsaw Part 2 – SPECIAL - Peaceful Resistance – It's Safe & Effective
"Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's;
My readers will know that I have been consistent in my commitment to peaceful resistance by withdrawing my consent and refusing to comply with diktats and edicts from Her Majesty's Government (HMG) together with global institutions like Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum (WEF) Great Reset & 4th Industrial Revolution.
I also include other unelected, self-appointed global 'authorities' such as the United Nations (UN), with its UN Agenda 2030, and the World Health Organisation (WHO). But not least of which are the most influential financial institutions represented by worldwide Central Banking cabals such as the Federal Reserve of America (Fed) and its multifarious, nation-based spawn such as the Bank of England (BoE) et al.

These central banks, ably supported by global investment mega-corporations like Blackrock, come under the supervision of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and comprise a formidable power-base which dictates the future of the common person and the socio-economic direction of our world in general. We are currently suffering some of the worst privations vested upon us by these technocrats. Readers can engage in their own research because all these global plans are publicly available through the wonder of the internet.
Normal methods of resistance, such as armed revolutions, are futile against such potent global powers owned and controlled by over 2,700 billionaires worldwide, most of whom have no interest in the well-being of the remaining 99%. In fact the deep state are actively inciting an insurrection in America so as to deploy their overwhelming powerful militarised agents: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08-29-its-all-rigged-deep-state-pushing-for-blood-in-the-streets.html This article proclaims clearly: "It is critical that 'We the People' do not fall for the provocations. Violence is what the regime wants to provoke, which means violence is exactly what we must reject."
These ruling elites view us no better than cattle, to live or die, or be herded, corralled and vaccinated at their command much as Elizabeth II, the queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, claims sovereignty over all her people who were in the past subjects, being at her command and pleasure.
By way of clarification, Britons actually ceased to be British subjects from 1 January 1983. This situation still survives as a legal status and government will continue to use it as witnessed by the recent illegal lockdowns perpetrated upon Britons without authority, under a declared State of Emergency, a common tool of despots.
This is a highly complex legalistic area of nationality law which demands a book in its own right. Suffice to say that in its truest sense we, the British people, are not free, we are corralled by a highly complex compendium of laws and edicts which are beyond the understanding of even 'educationally qualified' lawyers to fathom; hence the aphorism; "the law is an ass"
Note: theoretically a subject (derived from the Latin words, sub and jacio) means one who is under the power of another; but a citizen is a unit of a mass of free people, who, collectively, possess sovereignty; (if you want to believe this, I have a bridge to sell you).
Thus, to exercise our rights, we are able to peacefully protest, remove our consent and refuse to comply with whatever our ruling class decree. In this regard I turn to my close friend and colleague, Maj, Niall Warry (Rtd) who heads up a political Ginger Group: 'The Harrogate Agenda' (THA)
You will read that we have published our own agenda, but unlike the UN, it is directed to the benefit of 'We the People' following in the footsteps of the 'Chartist Movement' which was the first mass movement driven by the working classes. It grew following the failure of the 1832 Reform Act to extend the vote beyond those owning property in Great Britain: https://www.parliament.uk/about/living-heritage/transformingsociety/electionsvoting/chartists/overview/chartistmovement/
I now hand over to Niall Warry who will describe 'How non-violent struggle works' offered in part by Gene Sharp: "I have often quoted Gene Sharp’s little book from ‘Dictatorship to Democracy’ when talking about the importance of peaceful protests pointing out how violent protests play to a government’s strengths. So, the other day I when I came across a combined précis of three other books he wrote, called ‘How Non-violent Struggle Works’ I was keen to read it and have now had the chance to condense it down to this summary. This book has definitely helped confirm my view that peaceful protests are the only realistic way forward to achieve the reforms and changes we need to our governance.
This short book of around 100 pages starts by pointing out that there are not only two alternatives to protest, namely, ‘Passive Submission’ or ‘Violent Reaction’ but a third ‘Non-Violent Protest’- (NVA). The other key issues are covered in around half a dozen Chapters which I summaries below in a number of bullet points of key issues:
First it is important to understand: ‘THE EXERCISE OF POWER DEPENDS ON THE CONSENT OF THE RULED WHO, BY WITHDRAWING THAT CONSENT CAN CONTROL OR EVEN DESTROY THE POWER OF THEIR OPPONENTS.’
· The politics of NVAs can require up to 15 years to succeed.
· NVAs are performed by ordinary people not pacifists or saints.
· They work – consider most successful union wage disputes.
· Governments will always try to suppress NVAs.
While central power sees people as dependent upon goodwill decisions of the government, governments themselves are also very dependent on the people’s goodwill. ‘OBEDIENCE IS AT THE HEART OF POLITICAL POWER’.
Whilst people generally do obey, obedience is not automatic as all governments are based on consent.
· NVAs must not be half-hearted to win.
· They need discipline, control, intelligence, good timing and the right strategy and tactics as with any military action/campaign.
· Refusing consent requires the protestors to have self-confidence, motivation and involves inconvenience and suffering.
· Success comes from maintaining non-cooperation despite repression.
‘FREEDOM DOES NOT COME FOR FREE’ There are numerous methods of NVAs to consider and adopt from economic, social and political actions employed using a variety of non-violent ‘weapons’ - Protest and Persuasion:
· Non-cooperation and Non-Violent intervention. Choosing the right tactics for the methods used is very important.
· Success is accelerated once institutions join the struggle.
· NVA is fluid not static and involves risks – cowardice does not mix with success.
· Success comes from spreading knowledge widely.
· Don’t launch a struggle on general objectives like ‘World Peace’ be specific. (see: THA’s six demands at the above link!)
· Focus on the opponent’s weaknesses - limited victories are better than no victories – quality is better than quantity.
‘RESORTS TO VIOLENCE BRINGS DEFEAT’
· Publicise all campaign developments.
· Whether one or several groups involved coordination is vital and openness helps the cause.
· Maintain the moral high ground – attack ‘evil’ government actions.
· Give notice of NVAs to avoid government over reaction.
· Timings - don’t start before the people are ready, (as I believe they are not yet ready in UK)
· Vary tactics, concentrate on success and drop those that are unsuccessful.
· Avoid giving ultimatums to governments and it is better to act against an order than a prohibited area and the more successful the NVAs the greater the risk of government retaliation and repression including confiscation, economic sanctions, bans, arrests and even imprisonment.
· Be aware of government propaganda used to weaken the resistance.
‘PERSISTENCE IS VITAL AS THE WORSE GOVERNMENT REPRESSION COMES BEFORE THEIR CAPITULATION’
· Maintain moral by explaining the aims.
· Success is more likely without hate.
· Disperse leadership into independent cells.
· NVAs benefit from government overreaction so don’t resort to violence which will draw more support from home, the people in government and from abroad.
The four ways to achieve success against a government include: Conversion, General Accommodation without total acceptance, non-violent coercion as the government sees the writing on the wall and disintegration as the government falls apart.
‘DEFEAT COMES FROM GIVING UP’
· Of the 198 methods and techniques listed in the book, 61 are directly economic.
· A partial win is better than no win.
· Don’t be over confident in success.
‘A RE-DISTRIBUTION OF POWER BROUGHT ABOUT BY NVAs MAKES LASTING CHANGES TO SOCIETY.’
· NVAs strengthened People as they end submission, lose their fear and make a stand.
· During the campaign people gain an increased in self-esteem, enthusiasm and hope.
· NVAs reduce anti-social behaviour.
· Increases group unity and cooperation as the benefits achieved spread.
“A FREE SOCIETY NEEDS STRONG SOCIAL GROUPS AND INSTITUTIONS CAPABLE OF INDEPENDENT ACTION AND ABLE TO WIELD POWER IN THEIR OWN RIGHT.” (THA’s six demands again)
· Violent revolutions often end up with a greater centralisation of government power.
· NVAs usually lead to decentralising of power and improved democracy.
· A plan is needed to maintain the gains. (THA’s six demands yet again)
‘A PLAN IS NEEDED TO MAINTAIN THE GAINS WON AND TO AVOID A RETURN TO THE OLD WAYS’ Finally, this is where THA’s six demands really come into the equation as they set a template to follow with the reforms to our governance giving us lasting improvements to our democracy in line with the original meaning of the Greek word: ‘demos’ meaning people, and ‘kratos’ meaning power – for without real effective ‘People Power’ you have Democracy in name only which is of course our present circumstance."
Thank you Niall for laying out such powerful messages which I trust will encourage those wishing to engage in reconstructing our failing political institutions so obviously demonstrated by the present fiasco of the Tory Party leadership race. When our zombie government magically transmogrifies into a 'fairy godmother' on September 5, we will know whether the new PM will be an improvement on those wasted 12 years yielding nothing but austerity and impoverishment. I hope it will not be "Welcome new boss, same as old boss."
As a supplement to end Niall's discourse, I link an important article on the subject by my revered fellow writer, Colin Todhunter: https://off-guardian.org/2022/07/07/covid-capitalism-friedrich-and-boris/
AND to add to Niall's excellent manual for resisting, I would like to add my observations of the subject matter extant in Britain today, as an addendum:
"Resistance, it is said, is fertile." Aside from the many anti-restriction/pro-freedom rallies during COVID, we are now seeing a more strident trade unionism coming to the fore – in Britain at least – led by media-savvy leaders like Mick Lynch, general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), who know how to appeal to the public and tap into widely held resentment against our soaring cost of living.
Teachers, health workers and others could follow the RMT into taking strike action. Lynch says that millions of people in Britain face lower living standards and the final stripping out of occupational pensions. He adds: "COVID has been a smokescreen for the rich and powerful in this country to drive down wages as far as they are able.”
Just like a decade of imposed ‘austerity’ was used to achieve similar results in the lead-up to COVID; the trade union movement should now be taking a leading role in resisting attacks on living standards and further attempts to run-down state-provided welfare and privatise what remains.
The strategy to wholly dismantle and privatise health and welfare services seems increasingly likely given the need to rein in (COVID-related) public debt and the trend towards AI, workplace automation and worklessness.
This is a real concern because, following the logic of capitalism, work is a condition for the existence of the labouring classes. So, if a mass labour force is no longer deemed necessary, there is no need for mass education, welfare and healthcare provision and systems that have traditionally served to reproduce and maintain labour that capitalist economic activity has required in the past.
In 2019, Philip Alston, the UN rapporteur on extreme poverty, accused British government ministers of the “systematic immiseration of a significant part of the British population” in the decade following the 2008 financial crash. Alston stated:
"As Thomas Hobbes observed long ago, such an approach condemns the least well off to life that is ‘solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short’. And so the British social contract slowly evaporates, Hobbes’ prediction risks becoming the new reality.” Post-COVID, Alston’s words carry even more weight.
As this article draws to a close, news is that, according to our delusional outgoing PM UK is predicted to emerge "stronger and more prosperous the other side’ of the cost-of-living crisis" I don't know what he has been smoking, but I would like to try it! The Evening Standard has the copy: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnson-uk-energy-bills-cost-of-living-winter-putin-ukraine-britain-prime-minister-vladimir-putin-nadhim-zahawi-b1021431.html
"I have never seen a 'ruling class' so deeply demoralised, so incurably debased by selfishness, so corroded within, so incapable of progress, as the English bourgeoisie. For them nothing exists in this world, except for the sake of money, itself not excluded. It knows no bliss save that of rapid gain, no pain save that of losing gold. In the presence of this avarice and lust of gain, it is not possible for a single human sentiment or opinion to remain untainted;" said long ago: 'The Condition of the Working Class in England (1845), p.275'

...."the queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, claims sovereignty over all her people who were in the past subjects, being at her command and pleasure."....
Between 1990-1991 during the Desert Storm (Gulf War I), Gen. Colin Powell and Gen Norman Schwarzkopf killed at least 250,000 Iraqis and poisoned 250,000 US soldiers and 33,000 UK soldiers using untested Anthrax vaccines (prior to their deployment to Kuwait and Iraq). Vaccine related diseases were called Gulf War Syndrome.
Guest what happened to the war criminals? They were knighted by the Queen after the war.
In 2003, the same Colin Powell proved (empty vials!!) to the UN that Saddam Hussein had WMDs and Bush and Tony Blair invaded and killed more than 1million Iraqis. US troops are still in Iraq in 2022.
Tony Blair lied to the British parliament and slaughtered more than 300 British soldiers in Iraq.
Guest what happened to this war criminal? He was knighted by the Queen in 2022.
I have no clue what the institution of monarchy in the UK represents - maybe they represent some extraterrestrial Reptilians (David Icke)!!!
"Obedience is at the heart of political power". Absolutely. I have a habit of reducing the relationship between governments and we the people to the level of individual relationships. We are being exposed to repeated abuse. The agreement between the abused and the abuser is a central feature. But weakened people are far more susceptible to becoming abused. So are weakened leaders.
