Chaos – disorder, confusion, things out of control. Kind of like much of our world today. When will our chaos go away? But what if chaos is an essential precursor to great change. Change rarely flows from stability and order. Disruption is what creates an environment favoring change. Chaos is often its marker. Chaos allows big changes to happen.

Things seemingly out of control. So much instability. So many big changes without warning. Such chaotic conditions appear to characterize much of our world today. There seems to be little that we can hang on to for balance and direction, or even for just a brief respite.

So much for the good news. The bad news is that some very powerful people and groups are making great efforts to restore calm, stability, and predictability. They will end chaos, but using authoritarian measures. The current persistence of chaos is making this drive for control and stability – their way – inconveniently difficult. Maybe chaos is good?

The bad news: Continued chaos may actually be just what we need

Change almost by definition does not occur under stable, calm, orderly conditions. Changes – good and bad – happen mostly under what we perceive as chaos. In this sense, chaos is change-ready or change-in-progress. No chaos, no changes.

This aspect of reality is why revolutions and wars happen. Big changes can only take place when the status quo is greatly disrupted. Without the impetus of major disruptions, changes of any significant nature are unlikely.

Most people don’t like big changes of almost any kind. They strongly prefer stability and predictability, even if such conditions are actually quite restrictive. Uncertainty is unwelcome.

Fortunately, huge, highly-interconnected, complex systems like our world today are inherently fragile, as a post from a while back argues. Such systems are highly prone to disruption and breakage – even from quite small events.

Our complex, highly-interconnected, fragile world system – ready for big changes.
Our complex, highly-interconnected, fragile world system – ready for big changes.

Who needs chaos?

Chaos, unfortunately, seems to be a common state of our world. Non-chaos periods are rare and fairly brief – depending of course on how you define “chaos”. Wars in many cases generate chaos, or are caused by chaos, or both. Chaos may well be a central feature of human reality.

Reality is what most of us have to deal with every day, like it or not. Well, probably not politicians, bankers, and global mischief-makers like the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the United Nations (UN), among others. We normal folk tend to prefer a reality with relative stability and predictability. Constantly adapting to seriously-changing situations is way too hard for the majority while they are struggling simply to cope with life or whatever. Who needs chaos anyway?

Those who are trying to generate huge change need chaos. Why? Because that’s pretty much the only way such change happens. Huge change takes forever or longer unless it is being initiated and helped along by chaotic conditions.

And just who is trying to create huge change right now? The usual suspects, obviously: the WEF and its global public-private partnership (GPPP) friends and supporters, the UN, the World Bank, the World Health Organization (WHO), and various other globalists who are trying to dominate our world today. A recent post had a look at these folks.

António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations.
António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations.

History may well be the story of chaos creators – such as Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao – and chaos victims – aka everybody else. Us everybody-else folks strongly prefer non-chaos conditions of order, stability, and predictability.

This is actually a serious conundrum.

We want non-chaos, but in order to achieve it while the chaos-creators are so busy at work, we need chaos to achieve our state of non-chaos. Not convenient to say the least.

Chaos is being created so that folks will demand its end

Chaos today seems to have a clear purpose. It provides the problem that the chaos-creators can use to offer folks a clear non-chaos solution. Out of chaos comes order, so it is said:

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”

― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Order Out Of Chaos, or in Old Latin Ordo Ab Chao – is also associated with another Latin phrase, Lux In Tenebris, which translates to Light from Darkness. Invention of this motto is attributed to the Supreme Council of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite (i.e., Freemasonry) in the early 1800s.

In our times, this theory of how order emerges from chaos has been picked up by British author David Icke to the great annoyance of its current perpetrators:

“When there is a problem in the world, we say ‘What are they going to do about it’. At which point they, who have secretly created the problem in the first place, respond to this demand by introducing a ‘solution’ – more centralization of power and erosion of freedom. If you want to give more powers to the police, security agencies and military, and you want the public to demand you do it, then ensure there is more crime, violence and terrorism, and then it’s a cinch to achieve your aims. Once the people are in fear of being burgled, mugged or bombed, they will demand that you take their freedom away to protect them from what they have been manipulated to fear. … I call this technique problem-reaction-solution.”

“Create the problem, encourage the reaction ‘something must be done’, and then offer the solution. It is summed up by the Freemason motto ‘Ordo Ab Chao’ – order out of chaos. Create the chaos and then offer the way to restore order. Your order. The masses are herded and directed by many and various forms of emotional and mental control.”

― David Icke, … And The Truth Shall Set You Free (1995)

Problem-reaction-solution theory applied

Well, we sure do have a global case of the chaos part of ordo ab chao, which seems to be getting amplified almost daily. This for most of us normal folks is certainly a major, real problem. So, problem: check.

Next up is some kind of visible reaction. For me, it seems hard to untangle the problem from its reaction. Reactions appear to be part of the problem, which may well be intended. Perhaps the right way to go about this separation, assuming that it is necessary, is to identify those who seem to be creating the chaos, and those who are reacting to chaos.

Chaos-creators have been roughly identified above: the WEF, WHO, UN, most governments, and sundry ruler-wannabes and supporters. Chaos-reactors probably include almost everybody else – folks whose lives are being hugely disrupted and confused. Unlike the chaos-creators, us chaos-reactors are almost entirely disorganized and frequently in conflict amongst ourselves.

Chaos-creators today are largely effective, at least so far. Chaos-reactors are either mostly ineffective or are thrashing about in ways that add to the problem. Nasty situation where chaos-reactors are inadvertently helping the chaos-creators. Perhaps intended. So, reaction: check.

Without doubt, the solution (or in reality, solutions) is evident and clear. It mostly involves control, as you will surely have suspected. A recent post had a fairly good look at how this control is being implemented: digital IDs for surveillance, plus digital money for control. Both are being rolled out at, say, warp speed (like almost everything these days). So, solution: check.

And there we have it. If you are a bit skeptical of David Icke, like most of the world, you can step back into philosophy and the Hegelian dialectic. This, as almost everybody knows, refers to the particular dialectical method of argument employed by the 19th Century German philosopher, G.W.F. Hegel. Thesis-antithesis, and synthesis. I’ll leave it at that.

So where does all of this leave us in our chaotic reality of today?

In particular, I think, it leads to the question of what, if anything, might we do about our currently successful chaos-creators and solution-providers? Are we simply doomed, or destined if you prefer, to be surveilled and controlled into a non-chaotic state of order, stability, and predictability?

The chaos-creators are, for the most part, globalists of various flavors. One World Government (or New World Order, to reflect ordo ab chao) purveyors. Klaus Schwab’s WEF and its GPPP supporters and enablers appear to be leading the charge toward order here. Their definition of “order” of course, not ours.

Order, stability, and predictability – non-chaos attributes – are being aggressively and globally pursued via coordinated control by the world’s dominator-wannabes. Control appears to be their endgame, using money – especially digital money – as the mechanism.

However, the world meanwhile appears to be splitting into at least two major blocks – the West (U.S., EU, UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, …), and the rapidly emerging and coalescing Eurasian nations led by Russia and China. The latter includes roughly 70% of the world’s population. Worse yet for the globalists, the multi-polar Eurasian nations do not seem especially interested in global domination. At least for the moment.

This situation is extremely inconvenient for the chaos-creators of the West.

The West it seems is so deeply committed to world domination – even if their “world” is being downsized rather rapidly – that they are unlikely to abandon their domination aims. No matter what the cost. To us.

Protests are not likely to win, but they may keep the chaos active.
Protests are not likely to win, but they may keep the chaos active.

Collapsing the financial system is underway

Well, perhaps just the West’s financial system, since the Eurasian nations are busy extracting themselves from the West’s systems and replacing them rapidly with their own. This transition appears to be succeeding and is steadily moving ahead.

For us members of the “West”, it appears that the now mini-world domination and chaos-creation efforts are primarily aimed at us. It is mostly our financial system that is being collapsed. The US dollar collapse especially.

Focus right now is on the banking part of our overall financial system. In particular, the means of control over money, and over those odd folks who use money, is under attack. As noted above, control via money is being pursued in the digital realm: digital “money” (which it isn’t – see here and here) in the form of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and inescapable surveillance via digital IDs.

Banks worldwide – if you redefine “world” as the West – are being destroyed. Well, not all, such as the systemically too-big-to-fail banks, but in particular those large banks who are for some unknown reasons deeply involved in supporting cryptocurrency businesses. Like Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank, and crypto bank Silvergate (now liquidated). Cryptos and CBDCs are direct competitors and, as you know, government doesn’t do competition.

Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, is up next according to Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge: “Cryptos Tumble After CFTC Sues Binance And CEO Changpeng ‘CZ’ Zhao”:

“’Operation Choke Point 2.0’ is a term coined by Coin Metrics co-founder Nic Carter to refer to an apparently coordinated effort to discourage banks from holding crypto deposits or providing banking services to crypto firms on the basis of ‘safety and soundness’ for the banking system.”

“In a time when millions of Americans are pulling billions in deposits from failing banks and allocating them to gold and bitcoin, US regulators were scrambling to come up a means to hammer cryptos and punish those who fled the fiat realm and ran toward bitcoin. They may have just come up with one solution.”

“Just days after Coinbase was served a Wells Notice from the SEC, Bitcoin and cryptos are in freefall following a Bloomberg report that Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, and Chief Executive Officer Changpeng Zhao, are being sued by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission for allegedly breaking trading and derivatives rules and with violating laws around offering futures transactions, ‘illegal off-exchange commodity options,’ failing to register as a futures commissions merchant, designated contract market or swap execution facility, poorly supervising its business, not implementing know-your-customer or anti-money laundering processes and having a poor anti-evasion program.”

“The complaint alleges that Binance ‘actively facilitated violations of U.S. law’ by assisting U.S. clients in evading compliance controls and instructing customers to obscure their location using virtual private networks, or VPNs.”

“The CFTC filed the lawsuit Monday in federal court in Chicago.  The derivatives regulator said Binance shirked its obligations by not properly registering with it.”

CBDCs are coming and cryptos are going, like it or not, as a recent post outlined.

Chaos is a financial system collapse

Money is kind of important to our way of life, and probably any way of life since our post-tribal days ended. What better way to implement a problem-reaction-solution strategy for “world” domination than to create a financial system or banking system collapse. Who among us chaos-reactors is going to survive such a hit?

Many or most are going to call for order, stability, and predictability – non-chaos – asap or sooner. Sorry preppers, but this flavor of chaos is far from what you are prepping for. This is an entirely different world.

The advantage for chaos-creators is that such a collapse can be largely managed, unlike a nuclear WW III which seems to be very popular at the moment. Failure of a bunch of small and regional banks is going to be so messy, technically speaking, that normal folks are going to be agreeable to almost any sort of fix. Like CBDCs and associated digital IDs.

Right now, this outcome looks inevitable.

CBDCs are coming, like it or not.
CBDCs are coming, like it or not.

So, is the outlook hopeless for us non-chaos folks?

It may well be, as long as the majority continues a willingness to accept non-chaos solutions on highly-unfavorable terms. Despite what the chaos creators claim, their “solutions” involve control via surveillance and digital money. Aka domination.

Is there any hope at all?

Well, yes – or at least I think so. And it is actually happening right now. Chaos is inherently self-destructing in very large highly-fragile complex systems like our world. Random events and situations occur continually. Some have little or no impact, but others will hit a place that is systemically fragile. A small hit in such places can cause huge consequences and move the system closer to an equilibrium (stable) state. A temporary equilibrium (i.e., non-chaos or less-chaos state) at least.

A brief detour into the rather obscure field of chaos theory might be helpful here.

Chaos theory is a theory of our reality

We live in a highly-complex fragile world system. Even the wannabe-dominators have to live here. Such systems are inherently unstable, but to cause significant change you have to hit them in the right places – places which are largely unknown and unpredictable. Here is what the experts have to say:

“Of course the word chaos is used in rather a vague sense by a lot of writers, but in physics it means a particular phenomenon, namely that in a nonlinear system the outcome is often indefinitely, arbitrarily sensitive to tiny changes in the initial condition.”

— Murray Gell-Mann, physicist

“As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.”

— Albert Einstein

“Chaos is the science of surprises, of the nonlinear and the unpredictable. It teaches us to expect the unexpected. While most traditional science deals with supposedly predictable phenomena like gravity, electricity, or chemical reactions, Chaos Theory deals with nonlinear things that are effectively impossible to predict or control, like turbulence, weather, the stock market, our brain states, and so on.”

— The Fractal Foundation, on “What is chaos theory

Tiny changes – impacts – can have huge consequences. Since the most vulnerable places are mostly unseeable, you need many small impacts to increase the likelihood of hitting one of these. Many small impacts, hopefully with consequences occasionally favorable to us. This may well be doable, and seems in fact to be what is going on today, mostly below the radar. Chaos is our friend.

A possible game plan for winning – our way

The key seems to be allowing chaos to at least some degree to continue. Providing a steady stream of “random occurrences” is the important part. So long as a few brave folks among the chaos-resistors keep generating system disruptions and disturbances, the likelihood of hitting system vital points is increased.

Getting things moving our way requires continued chaos. The random nature of complex fragile systems means that big impacts from small impacts can generate huge changes. Lots of small impacts from brave folks are essential.

Most folks as always are going to go along to get along, as noted in this post. This inevitability is probably good. It helps avoid uncontrollable game-changers like war and revolution. Redirecting chaos toward our interests is not likely to be possible during wars and revolutions.

So, we fortunately have a highly chaotic, change-ready world already in place. We don’t have to fuss with creating this essential foundation for major change. Politicians and their kin, especially the ruler-wannabes, are doing a great job on maintaining this change foundation right now.

The trick then is to trigger the desirable system changes before the bad guys of whatever flavor succeed in reaching their intended state of autocratic stability and control. Not an easy challenge, but one that is being pursued by a growing number of surprisingly effective human disruptors and irritants.

These helpful good-guy people are certain to hit some of the right places simply because they are aiming at so many, and such a diversity of, places. They don’t know what will work best so they wisely try as many approaches as they can devise. Or so it appears to me at least.

The main problem here is that these chaos disruptors and repurposers all have their own agendas, and as such are mostly uncoordinated and often conflicting. They do hit diversely and hard at the mainstream chaos-creator forces, but their impact is not especially effective in most instances in slowing down or diverting the various powers that be. The ruler-wannabes and kin are still on a roll in our particular mini-world.

This situation may however be valuable in that the chaos-resistors do not present any clear challenge to ruler-wannabes and their domination kin. More of a nuisance or distraction. It may well be that this approach is their underlying survival strategy.

What can we do?

Realistically, those who are able and willing to jump out in front of the chaos-creator battlewagons are very few. That is probably how it should be. The good news here is that we don’t need big groups of people directly fighting what is happening. In fact, it is this cooperating majority that will provide essential cover for those who are messing with this domination lava-flow.

What can help is assistance, encouragement, and support as individual situations and survival permit. Good folks do not need to take aggressive positions or major actions. They simply need to remain supportive, in whatever ways they are able, of those who few are leading the battle. So much good can be done from the shadows.

Bottom Line:

World domination is big business, literally, even if the world involved is shrinking. Rulers and ruler-wannabes have to create chaos – problems – in order to get folks to accept their non-chaos solutions. Their solutions, which offer order, stability, and predictability but require surveillance and control (obedience), are achieved by means of digital money.

What us non-rulers need is an effective way to change things in our favor, which mostly opposes whatever the powers that be are up to. But we also need chaos to cause our big changes, such as freedom from ruler control, surveillance, and general domination. Fortunately, our fragile complex world can respond greatly to small impacts that strike the right places. Doing small things can have a big impact. This fact may well be our most effective approach going forward to achieve our non-chaos design, not theirs.

I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one – big hitter, the Lama – long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga… gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, ‘Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.’ And he says, ‘Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.’ So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.”
