Compounding Interest


Capital Gains

Warrior

The greatest warrior wins without fighting, and converts his opponent into an ally or friend.

Well the post Independence land is settling back to a new sense of purpose, the natives have found out just like every other nation on the land that the media is telling them all fibs to create a world vision that does not in any way reflect the actual state of things. Either in their own land nor in their neighbours. The conglomerate overview mindset has a plan of keeping its status quo involved with that vision. And as all the national papers in Britain and all the broadcast media have proven that they will work to their master commands. Media blackouts, propaganda releases. Like the conspicuous by their absence Scottish No vote campaigns and rallies on the streets of Scotland as unreported by the mainstream media. While the social media reporting of the Scottish Yes campaign and rallies that generated the flowering of a nations youthful pride is still very much under a media blackout, but it has not been contained the word is spreading throughout the world, and the sudden swelling of the SNP ranks as reported in the social media forums and they are now being reinvigorated by the day and extended in the Yes camps and the Independence rank and file.

The news from the street is a generation of politically active youth in a glorious land think that investing has everything to do with trade. Trade is good with ourselves by ourselves say with a credit coin like the bitcoin. Say a Scotcrown a unit that has halves and quarters to trade with ourselves, for services and goods just a stamped coin with no reference to monarchy just kith and country. Just people trading goods and services and this could include cooperative funded second-hand goods by donation, for people who cannot afford to replace stolen goods because they don’t have insurance from conglomerate cash stripping, existing, defaulting companies.

The corporate mindset that thinks it’s vision for the world will be materialised when every nation has been brought under its jackboot tactics has learned nothing from history about man. The war of attrition is still focused on the same tactics.

The tactics that shut down your local shopkeeper and saw the rise of the supermarkets and superstores, was won by the suppliers that later became the superstores, that just added a shop front end on to their existing warehouses, hiked their prices to the small shop keeper until they were forced to raise prices and then with just an added shop front on a warehouse, they got the mobile new worker to travel to their new superstores and so could undermine the local shops artificially inflated prices by underselling to the cattle market shoppers. This was a war of attrition and it still has and owns all the transportation outlets or has substantial shares in them. It also has contractual agreements with producers and manufacturers that quite frankly even a large cooperative collection of small shop keepers will find hard to compete with. It would take locals sourcing goods and produce, transporting it and storing it, the small communities like the Asian communities took the step of using trade marts like booker and such to run small outlets, ice cream, hotdog, chip and groceries vans which are better for small local districts or isolated areas can and do use the same facilities which manage to produce a modest income for small families, and will expand to cafe’s, restaurants and invest the income into future development and expansion.

Now this brings us to what investment truly is. The true meaning of this is best seen when you make a gain that you capitalise on it, you use it as seed investment either back into the business base or into expansion or diversification. This like the first venture that brought the returns is a risk there are no guarantees in any venture, all the hard work into a diminishing market, or an occasional one with fluctuating trends and interest is a high risk one. There are no real growth markets or breaking innovations as the latest Apple iPhone6 proved when one was accidentally dropped right in front of a camera in a crowd on its first day of release. Proving that what a manufacturer claims in a shrinking market share to get ahead of its competitors is all PR and smoke and mirrors. As the device is just the old one but bigger and still smashes very easily no real future in that then is there, my how we are living in strange times.

The foreign interest in oil rich countries and the use of tech and lifestyle devices and paraphernalia to woo new trade markets has had some small success, the Arab nations that are currently aided by the very kind altruistic Americans that are killing of a reported terrorist fledgling nation as reported by the west’s media are proving to be early converts to the bribe of lifestyle and stance that some nations can impose their will on others as they see fit because they are big enough and they control the press releases, both at home and abroad.

The bottom line for the commercial world as it started out as is that it has become dictatorial about other people’s behaviour and ways and has started to dictate lifestyle choices, they are taking personal details and honestly they are not using them to track and hold to blame or to hold people to task as they dictate, honestly they can be trusted.

Now to not read their press releases is to not know their lie and to not see their areas of interest is to be blinded to the state of play, but to ask them to relinquish control and to consider those that are under foot as they trample the earth throwing their weight about. Now that is naive. Do not engage but keep informed and know the nature of the beast and avoid its track, watering times and dens, create your own and keep a united front, segregation and isolation are part of the tools of the armoury of contrition.

Money as ever is simply a token it long ago lost its intrinsic value and scrap value basis from the time when there was real silver and the weight meant something, unfortunately those days are long gone. The reality of what money has become is the token is representative of time spent to get it, effort used to earn it and worth by how satisfying it was to gain. The energy of earning is the only value left in any so-called cash, the credit system has just proven that the mass has given the liars, cheats and thieves the job of looking after their money, and with unrestricted access to easy pickings look what they do with it, they simply cannot help themselves.

To stand independent of a failing warring lying system and to weather the tirade and to invest in a counter system that puts people first again and stops treating people as commodities is a noble quest, but one or two people are but seeds on the wind of change and may well just land on rocky ground. But a ground base of say two million like-minded souls, or even a registered and known base of an entire nation that stands together under a shared ideal and with a unified cause that are linked and united and informed and that does not try to attack the old order. That just lays down the seeds of the new, tends the ground and cultivates it and waters and nurtures the sprouts and new shoots, trims and tends the growth till the first harvest will see the blossoming of a new order. Not an easy route not being bated or dragged into conflict, standing your ground and guarding the crop, harvesting the fruit and separating the investment for the next planting and marketing the surplus or saving the produce for trade or diversification, to live within the moment and to provide for tomorrow.

The talent that was displayed in the referendum in art, poems and song and the innovations with the passion that was ignited in the debates that followed and the new growth in the ground base of the converted is the capital of our investment, it is the first step to throwing of an imposed imperial order, for the first time without conflict to win a nation, to set a standard and to have ignited an interest in a true democracy around the globe, the echoes of which are igniting the scattered parts and will unify their beating hearts. That this is empowered by the collective rights of each and every individual that lends its power to its servant government body will end the centuries of tyrannical order that have become the core of the nature of the beast of creation. The best advice for the strategy for the way forward is best summed up in this from the statement. ‘The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not in fighting the ‘Old order’ but on building the New order’.
