This is a post crystalised in my head by the news of Boris J and Billy G's meeting yesterday - just the fact that it happened is all.
When I worked in a corporate environment we used to have a "house view" on any important subject, a company position if you like.
Not quite groupthink but with some similar attributes.
"Build, back better" - shared by Boris and Joe is an example.
But I now believe that, collectively, the important political (tempopower) and billionaire (permapower) players have a much larger house view and that it concerns the Green Agenda/Great Reset/Housekeeping of the Earth.
Also, I believe that Putin and Xi are in on it and that the divisions you see between the West and the East, for example, are just political theatre intended for the masses of both hemispheres - divide and conquer if you like.
Maybe this is being done for all of our sakes or maybe just for the rich and powerful..
However, the project is going to be very expensive, and we will all have to pay for it.
The unfortunate aspect to this is that the rich can afford a little financial discomfort whereas the poor will suffer real hardship.
Whether the power players get the balance right between rich discomfort and poor suffering will determine the outcome, but based on what I have seen so far arising out of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the poor are more likely to roll over.
Regardless, it's great for the permapowers that they have the tempopowers to shovel their shit for them... 💩🤪
