COVID 19: A BLACK SWAN EVENT??


Here’s a little bit of mind bending thought: given the growing Democrat delegate support for Bernie Sanders’ as Democratic Nominee for the 46th Presidency of the United State; yet, the simultaneous hesitancy of the Democrat Establishment to endorse Sanders’ democratic socialist agenda platform; feeling it will not meet with approval of the general electorate. The Democratic party is re-enforcing this sentiment by paralleling: socialism with communism , to undermine Sanders, and by nominating a more progressive, middle of the road candidate, will avoid Trump’s win of the November, election. 

Could the advent of the Corona Virus be an advantage to aid Bernie Sanders?

VIRUS

The Corona virus, a.k.a.: COVID 19, is on the verge to potentially ravish the globe. And, not necessarily from a public health, and mortality perspective; but, the ripple effects the panic, and anticipation of COVID 19, becoming a pandemic, is already show signs of developing.

Could COVID 19 materialize as 2020’s Black Swan event; a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact.

It’ is the growing condition of uncertainty that begins to impact the global economy dramatically. Work stoppages, production shutdown, lay-offs, commercial and retail sales decline, etc., etc..

As this condition grows, global stock exchanges see sell-offs; as the virus concern spreads further sell-offs at an increasing pace downward, spiraling to collapse, in all sectors, globally.

Just a few weeks since the outbreak, and cracks in the financial sector are beginning to appear:

Given what has transpired to date with quantitative easing measures, the Federal Reserve, and Central Banks might be powerless to plug the dam of liquidity outflow that have signs of materializing leading to exhausting of the financial system and fortunes being lost overnight.

It essentially, could have the effect of what the 2008 Sub-prime loan debacle did to trigger the financial collapse that almost brought on a depression; but this time: it will likely be from the top – down, and could be 1929 all over again but WORSE!

This potential Black Swan event could serve Bernie Sanders’ campaign well; to put front, and center, his Social Democratic policy platform, of the last forty-years.

The message to the electorate: recognize the collapse being suffered is the direct result of run-away Capitalism. Draw specific example to illustrate clearly, for the majority of the populace, how a purely corporate driven capitalist economy, and financial system is a pipe-dream, the American Dream; devised to benefit, and serve only the few.

Democratic Socialism, as Bernie Sanders has professed his entire life in service to the [Re]-Public; counters all the false promises sold over the last several decades of left-right politics, and promulgated through the corporate owned, and directed Main Stream Media.

A possible Campaign Slogan: BRING BACK THE FUTURE!, with the tag line: “For Hopes, and Dreams? NO, FOR REALITY!

 And should the Democrat Establishment impede Bernie’s rightful claim as Nominee for President; he declare himself an Independent, carrying his electoral support with him.

Then, to guarantee the passing of Bernie’s policies through Congress and the Senate, to vote for Democrats, and Independents, due for re-election, who advocate and fully support Bernie’s platform.

It’s just a thought; what do you think?

Deviousness of Plan?


a

Are we, the common Peoples of this world who cry,
Ponds to those whom sit on true power of high,
Source to the strings to what does unfold,
Devious, detached to what scourge they behold?

The birth to this historical era of fright and death,
Were it a forethought or spontaneous plan,
Either way, it has taken on a life that flourishes,
Fed by the rancour of unyielding, insatiable foes.

Unrelenting, seems the flow of blood spawned by hate,
Instigated in defence of distorted, theocratic ideology
Yet, questionable to the camouflage cover it provides
Scrupulously; the truth to reason and purpose it hides.

If this be rai·son d’ê·tre to those whom look down,
What they serve to accomplish is more blood soaked ground;
For the illness of mind that is now ravenously being unleashed,
Finds service of comfort to Faith, the more of their enemy to defeat.

Borderless, this trauma seems likely to find its course,
Opposition to its viral spread made more difficult to source,
Like a pandemic virus inoculation of remedy taking time to find,
All the while, liberty of life and freedoms obliged to decline.

The darkest of clouds bought by the unrest has yet to manifest,
To be avoided, those of righteous standing must come to the test;
Knowing full well the cause to what incites this scourge to unfold,
In service to humanity; they must come forth, let the truth finally be told.

Naykd Poet


cropped-naykdpoet.jpg

Since December 2011 by this blog, I’ve purged my heart, mind and soul; laying Naykd my thoughts to all, to know but, with time of near four years passage, what most did not grow, is awareness to a wisdom, my words, with hope, would sow. Yet, undaunted I pursue this work, not for the charm of accolade or renown but, for the mere chance of survival from that which ails this world; I feel so emotionally, so profound.  It is my only vehicle to solution short of violent revolution upon the corruptness metastasizing throughout this Human institution but to remain discouraged, by its prolific infusion. `Words can be mightier than the sword’ but, for that truth to be known, the right words need be shown, for the courage of strength, to be sown.

YOU


Image result for you

The world feeling stress at the seams;
Truer than life are its worst of dreams;
Hesitant are most to give it a voice;
But there comes a moment, there is no choice.

Every avenue, every domain,
Every institution, established name;
Feeling the pressure, fracturing apart;
Traditions failing those worn closest, to a civil heart.

What remedy, what resolve
Need manifest to this malaise, solve;
Far too great is their weight of dismay,
Leaving loss of hope, to see light of day.

Prophecy of scripture, resigned to by some,
Rendering providence to returning mythical Son;
But reality holds to a much stronger truth:
Solutions reside in the hearts of everyone and, YOU!

Fabric Of Dreams


GRAFFITI 5

(Interpret the following in the context of your choosing; a challenge to its meaning)

The walls of confinement are real

Not the kind that are meant to feel

But to their prisoner, the deal

A mind’s creation, to hide, or conceal?

What a lonely life is here led

No more emotions left to be bled

Into a dark abyss consigned – defeated

Is hopelessness here to be conceded?

Observing eyes shut to what’s seen

Presuming all goodness and serene

Not to tamper with illusion-dream

Is all the pain as real as it seems?

A mind’s creation, to hide, or conceal?

Is hopelessness here to be conceded?

Is all the pain as real as it seems?

Answers lie in the fabric of dreams.

World Affairs – Slowly Unravelling


crisis

Epicentre: Ground Zero – SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 a.k.a.: 911

Thanks to President George W. Bush Administration’s knee-jerk response to a planned execution to derive the response it has garnered some fifteen years later, finds the world spinning out of control in a futile attempt to counter every conceivable issue imaginable that is detrimental to the longevity of human existence on this space cycling planet.

Migration of displaced humans a.k.a.: migrants, is imposing untolled hardship on every aspect involved in the issue from the unfortunate migrants themselves, innocent ponds in the senseless and brutal conflicts imposed by out-of-touch psychopathic politicians and bureaucrats, to the innocent citizens of the countries literally being invaded by scores of men, women and their children generating purely hateful, dogmatic reactions on a scale to be considered a crime against humanity.

The following video plainly illustrates the growing, divisive issues gaining momentum as the flow of refugees from primarily African nations, who are primarily Muslim representing all strata of this faith’s beliefs. The result; it creates a two-pronged problem in the eyes of those vehemently opposed to opening their nation’s borders.

Firstly, the threat jihadist elements will be amongst the migrants raising potential for terrorist actions on their soil and second, the direct and physical assault on the civility and traditions they do not wish imposed upon.

The irony lies in what the migrant, questioned as to why Britain and not France states: `Britain is a `Kingdom’, a place where he and his family can flourish. The United States is first and Britain is second.’ This undoubtedly stems from the false and misleading propagandist imagery and rhetoric fed to poorer nations by way of international western media of every sort, now coming to bite them in the proverbial ASS!

In the meantime, the People of Greece already repressed due to unimaginable austerity measures imposed upon they and their government by the European Union principally enforced by Germany, seconded by France, are being over-run by migrant refugees attempting to escape the death and destruction in all parts of the Middle East and northern and central Africa. Though the Greek Islands are serving as a way-stop for refugees targeting Germany as their ultimate destination, here too, the local populace feels unduly pressured to morally respond to the crisis, a crisis created by leaders of other countries. An imposition difficult to accommodate even in the best of economic times.

To where this growing humanitarian crisis will ultimate lead is open to speculation, informed or otherwise but, given the timid international response to the dire state for so many and growing, the outcome in any framework of common sense knows it is not favoured to be good.

Lore’s Truths Hidden


a
Each generation to human creation dilutes meaning to experience;
History etched in text accounting for pain, blood and life lost
Fade, obliterated from present minds’ tangible suffering
Only to be relived, re-enacted and resolved to be unique,
Yielding but another, duplication, to historical records’ accounting.

What manifestation need arrive to dissolve this endless cycle
Of seemingly pointless toil; to render permanent solution;
Elimination of permanent state of sufferance by the many
Whose wish goal is to purely reside harmoniously; in peaceful
Collaborative purpose and mutual enjoyment of prosperity?

For those with whom resides the mind to seek it,
Telling truths, hidden in ancient lore; wisdom is to be found.
Words that speak not only to the past but, to days yet to come.
Though failing to heed the messages’ veracity to experience lived,
Is reason sure, world peace, yet again, stands to become undone.
