Whenever I reflect on my role in Michaelangelo & Partners, the group of companies I plan to start after the Reval, no matter what way I scale the mountain, I seem to arrive at the same place.
I must be an independent decision maker. That’s job one. That must be in place before anything else.
That’s what’s missing in our society right now, I think, and the degree to which it’s missing is the degree to which our society is not working.
Many of our decision-makers in government have taken gold rather than lead. Some have been blackmailed with photographs of pedophilia or “escorts.” Others have been incriminated and compromised through other means, by the deep state.
Given that we’re building Nova Earth, our response needs to be that we remain independent decision-makers, beholden to no one and nothing but the truth. We already have the gold and soon we’ll be beyond the reach of lead.
We may have to wall ourselves off for a while from scammers, shills, and trolls. But our promise is to remain uncorrupted. And uncorruptible.
That could be an everyday challenge. For some of us it will be. I’m sure it will for me.
And not because of the gold itself but because of what it can buy. I’m sure we’ll all wrestle with our personal, unresolved devils – to some extent – before things settle down. OK, OK, I’m gonna have Crepes Suzette every night for a week.
I don’t feel I need to ask AAM if uncorruptibility is the new baseline. I’m pretty sure it is. Even if it weren’t, I’m making it the baseline for myself.
