Vox Day highlights a new development of the Game Stop saga:
Vladimir, yes founder Vladimir, and the C-Suite, received calls from Sequoia Capital and the White House that pressured into closing trading on GME etc. I guarantee you the same took place at E-Trade and the others who closed trading.
File reports on the SEC page. If I wasn’t scared to be out of work in a pandemic I’d quit. I’m disgusted. We all need to rise up, this is as bad as it gets when we talk about how the rich get one set of rules, and the rest of us get screwed over, and over, and over again left to bail them out and pick up the tab for their trillion dollar tax breaks. We need to pile pressure on every government and financial institution involved in this travesty of justice.
As Vox notes, the rule of law is crashing down, which was the point of my article on the subject. But I write to draw your attention to a related article which I recently read.
The writer examines the words of a saint:
In this post I would like to contemplate the words of a prophet of the 20th century, St. Paisios of Mt. Athos. Although I first read his words years ago, I have since revisited them. I was overwhelmed at how in reading them I felt as if he were simply describing the world around me today.
He then muses on our current circumstances:
What will be another mode through which the culmination of the Antichrist will come? Global economy, an economy in which only those approved may participate. We are witnessing such structures being erected around us today.
Rather timely when you consider the events of the past few days.
The pertinent extract:
“Little by little, after the credit card and the ID card; that is, after the personal ‘record’ of each person, they will proceed insidiously to the seal. Through various cunning means, they will compel people to accept the seal on the forehead or on the arm. They will force the issue and say, ‘You can only use the card; currency will be abolished’ … Whoever does not have a card will not be able to buy or sell. On the other hand, they will begin promoting ‘the other more perfect system’ by marking every person with the 666, using laser beams on the forehead or arm, which will not be visible on the outside.” (pg. 209)
“Anyone who is not sealed will simply not be able to live normally in society. They will then again say, ‘Your troubles come from not being sealed; if you accept the seal, you will not have these difficulties.’ If anyone happens to have gold sovereigns or dollars, he will not be able to use them
The global economy is run by those and for those who have deserted God. The Biden Pox has been the warm up to test whether the people of the world are ready and willing to abandon all trace of God in favor of comfort and security. The rules of the game are their own to break at their whim and need. The signs of the times are all around us but we are still each of us beholden to open our own eyes and see.
A Christian is reminded of the words of St. Antony the Great, “A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad. You are not like us.’”
