Charles Hugh Smith: Fatal Synergies, Benign Synergies, Steele Comment

Answering the question, why does one system survive crises and another does not?

The answer lies in what author Geoffrey Parker termed Fatal Synergies and Benign Synergies in his book Global Crisis. 

I think we can distill the difference between Fatal Synergies and Benign Synergies into two questions:

1.  What problems cannot be resolved by the system/state, no matter how many reforms are thrown at them?

2.  Which groups have a meaningful voice in communal decision-making / governance and which groups are effectively voiceless / powerless?

The first question identifies the structural weak points in the system.

The second question identifies how many groups have been suppressed, silenced or ignored by those at the top of the heap.

Crises are constraints which reveal the problems the system is incapable of resolving.

Systems which cannot adapt fast enough and successfully enough to resolve novel problems die.

Above is sharply abridged extract.


ROBERT STEELE: Charles in his longer response that is privileged (limited to paying subscribers) ably touches on the fact that the 1% can buy the political class. This is not a new finding. What is new is that Dr. Cynthia McKinney and I are leading the charge for #UNRIG ELECTIONS, and my four movies are connecting the dots for the public.

DOT 1: Rigged elections are how you get a rigged Congress that enables a rigged Wall Street, with Satanic pedophilia as the glue that holds it all together.

DOT 2: Most — not all — federal, state, and local officials are too easily bribed, blackmailed, or brainwashed to betray the 99% in favor of the 1%.

DOT 3: Creating a Smart Nation, a topic for which I am arguably the foremost thinker on the planet, standing on the shoulders of thousands of others such as Nassim Nicholas Taleb, requires three things:

  • World Brain / Web 3.0
  • Local power — plus pastors and armed deputized citizens
  • All Source Counterintelligence starting with 100% weaponized NSA

God Bless  President Donald J. Trump and the people that have helped him confront the Deep State and expose the digusting underbelly of the Deep State, the Zionist Red Mafiya that traffics in children and uses Satanic Pedophilia — as do its Catholic, Mormon, and other allies — to pervert and control federal, state, and local networks. Without President Trump my voice would have  been repressed. Without Cynthia McKinney and Mike Flynn and Sidney Powell I would not have had the holistic credibility I enjoy today.

All that is required for us to Make America Great Again is for all of us to come together — the populists of the left joining with the populists of the right and embracing Independents, Libertarians, Greens, and others — to take back the power from the local level on up.

People, not parties. Authentic, inclusive, truthful.

Dr. McKinney and I plan a national tour — 50 states in 50 days — in June and July.  We will announce plans and start fund-raising on 1 April 2021.
