Has the sun set permanently on great leaders? No? Well, where are they – today I see none. I see only powerful groups and many rulers and ruler-wannabes. Exercise of power and leadership are different. We have lots of the former, but a serious vacuum in the latter. Why should this be? Is it ever likely to be corrected – somehow?

From a professor of computer science at UC Berkeley: “The arrival of superhuman machine intelligence will be the biggest event in human history.” The NY Times article was titled “How to Stop Superhuman AI Before It Stops Us”. Interesting conjecture, but is such a happening truly possible, and if so, at all likely? There is at least one very good reason why not.

Roughly 18% of the U.S. workforce is employed in federal, state, or local governments, nearly 30 million people. About half the country thinks that’s too many while the other half thinks that’s too few. Yet, government as a percentage of population has been decreasing for 50 years.

The increasingly powerful Klaus Schwab, his WEF, and his fast-growing army of supporters and implementers seem to have focused on an approach to a one- world-order that is working. Government-issued digital ID’s plus government-created digital money. And rapidly becoming non-optional. Global leaders are quite open about their objectives. Is this 1984’s obey-or-else time? Or just maybe – something good?

Lots of evidence recently of COVID-related health damages and deaths. Hiring qualified replacements is increasingly difficult. For a business today, this is a scary but terribly real situation. But, what if a business lost, say, up to two-thirds of its workforce as a result? Is there anything it can do to prepare, especially given the possibility that no such worker-loss horror will actually occur?

Decentralized cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are being seriously challenged today by rapidly developing, government-controlled, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) technologies. 112 countries, representing over 95 percent of global GDP, are exploring a CBDC. This is a big problem, since any type of digital money is not money. Real money is very different. Do you know why?
