I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon in my 12 years of watching the news headlines for a living: Stories often pop up in mirror image pairs.
Take these two recent stories, for example.
One from the US Department of (in)Justice: “Manhattan U.S. Attorney Announces Arrest Of United States Citizen For Assisting North Korea In Evading Sanctions.”
And the other courtesy of the Pentagon . . . uhhh, I mean, the MIT Technology Review: “China may be just about to launch its digital currency in two cities.”
Just glancing at the headlines, it would seem that these are two completely unrelated stories. But once we look at the details, we will see how these two tales represent a fork in the path. Down one path we can see the promise of currency decentralization and the real threat that it poses to the existing establishment. Down the other path lies a future in which all transactions are centralized once and for all, a nightmare of constant and total surveillance from which there will be no escape.
Once we recognize this fork in the road for what it is, we can make an informed decision about which path we wish to follow. But we don’t have long before this window of opportunity closes and the elitists choose our path for us.
The problem, as usual, is that most people are unaware we are even at this fork in the path, let alone that we have a decision to make. So let’s examine these stories and see what they tell us about where humanity is heading in the next decade.
Learn about the future of currency and how it will shape our future as a species in this week’s edition of The Corbett Report Subscriber. Then, stick around for this month’s subscriber exclusive video where we’re joined by Vinnie Caggiano for some music analysis.
