Year Zero

2020 was GloboCap Year Zero. The year when the global capitalist ruling classes did away with the illusion of democracy and reminded everyone who is actually in charge, and exactly what happens when anyone challenges them.

In the relatively short span of the last ten months, societies throughout the world have been transformed beyond recognition. Constitutional rights have been suspended. Protest has been banned. Dissent is being censored. Government officials are issuing edicts restricting the most basic aspects of our lives … where we can go, when we can go there, how long we are allowed to spend there, how many friends we are allowed to meet there, whether and when we can spend time with our families, what we are allowed to say to each other, who we can have sex with, where we have to stand, how we are allowed to eat and drink, etc. The list goes on and on.

The authorities have assumed control of the most intimate aspects of our daily lives. We are being managed like inmates in a prison, told when to eat, sleep, exercise, granted privileges for good behavior, punished for the slightest infractions of an ever-changing set of arbitrary rules, forced to wear identical, demeaning uniforms (albeit only on our faces), and otherwise relentlessly bullied, abused, and humiliated to keep us compliant.

None of which is accidental, or has anything to do with any actual virus, or any other type of public health threat. Yes, before some of you go ballistic, I do believe there is an actual virus, which a number of people have actually died from, or which at least has contributed to their deaths … but there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any authentic public health threat that remotely justifies the totalitarian emergency measures we are being subjected to or the damage that is being done to society. Whatever you believe about the so-called “pandemic,” it really is as simple as that. Even if one accepts the official “science,” you do not transform the entire planet into a pathologized-totalitarian nightmare in response to a health threat of this nature.

The notion is quite literally insane.

GloboCap is not insane, however. They know exactly what they are doing … which is teaching us a lesson, a lesson about power. A lesson about who has it and who doesn’t. For students of history it’s a familiar lesson, a standard in the repertoire of empires, not to mention the repertoire of penal institutions.

The name of the lesson is “Look What We Can Do to You Any Time We Fucking Want.” The point of the lesson is self-explanatory. The USA taught the world this lesson when it nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. GloboCap (and the US military) taught it again when they invaded Iraq and destabilized the entire Greater Middle East. It is regularly taught in penitentiaries when the prisoners start to get a little too unruly and remember that they outnumber the guards. That’s where the “lockdown” concept originated. It isn’t medical terminology. It is penal institution terminology.

As we have been experiencing throughout 2020, the global capitalist ruling classes have no qualms about teaching us this lesson. It’s just that they would rather not to have to unless it’s absolutely necessary. They would prefer that we believe we are living in “democracies,” governed by the “rule of law,” where everyone is “free,” and so on. It’s much more efficient and much less dangerous than having to repeatedly remind us that they can take away our “democratic rights” in a heartbeat, unleash armed goon squads to enforce their edicts, and otherwise control us with sheer brute force.

People who have spent time in prison, or who have lived in openly totalitarian societies, are familiar with being ruled by brute force. Most Westerners are not, so it has come as a shock. The majority of them still can’t process it. They cannot see what is staring them in the face. They cannot see it because they can’t afford to see it. If they did, it would completely short-circuit their brains. They would suffer massive psychotic breakdowns, and become entirely unable to function, so their psyches will not allow them to see it.

Others, who see it, can’t quite accept the simplicity of it (i.e., the lesson being taught), so they are proposing assorted complicated theories about what it is and who is behind it … the Great Reset, China, the Illuminati, Transhumanism, Satanism, Communism, whatever. Some of these theories are at least partially accurate. Others are utter bull-goose lunacy.

They all obscure the basic point of the lesson.

The point of the lesson is that GloboCap — the entire global-capitalist system acting as a single global entity — can, virtually any time it wants, suspend the Simulation of Democracy, and crack down on us with despotic force. It can (a) declare a “global pandemic” or some other type of “global emergency,” (b) cancel our so-called “rights,” (c) have the corporate media bombard us with lies and propaganda for months, (d) have the Internet companies censor any and all forms of dissent and evidence challenging said propaganda, (e) implement all kinds of new intrusive “safety” and “security” measures, including but not limited to the physical violation of our bodies … and so on. I think you get the picture. (The violation of our bodies is important, which is why they love “cavity searches” in prison, and why the torture-happy troops at Abu Ghraib were obsessed with sexually violating their victims.)

And the “pandemic” is only one part of the lesson. The other part is being forced to watch (or permitted to watch, depending on your perspective) as GloboCap makes an example of Trump, as they made examples of Corbyn and Sanders, as they made examples of Saddam and Gaddafi, and other “uncooperative” foreign leaders, as they will make an example of any political figurehead that challenges their power. It does not matter to GloboCap that such political figureheads pose no real threat. The people who rally around them do. Nor does it make the slightest difference whether these figureheads or the folks who support them identify as “left” or “right.” GloboCap could not possibly care less. The figureheads are just the teaching materials in the lesson that they are teaching us.

And now, here we are, at the end of the lesson … not the end of the War on Populism, just the end of this critical Trumpian part of it. Once the usurper has been driven out of office, the War on Populism will be folded back into the War on Terror, or the War on Extremism, or whatever GloboCap decides to call it … the name hardly matters. It is all the same war.

Whatever they decide to call it, this is GloboCap Year Zero. It is time for reeducation, my friends. It is time for cultural revolution. No, not communist cultural revolution … global capitalist cultural revolution. It is time to flush the aberration of the last four years down the memory hole, and implement global “New Normal” Gleichschaltung, to make sure that this never happens again.

Oh, yes, things are about to get “normal.” Extremely “normal.” Suffocatingly “normal.” Unimaginably oppressively “normal.” And I’m not just talking about the “Coronavirus measures.” This has been in the works for the last four years.

Remember, back in 2016, when everyone was so concerned about “normality,” and how Trump was “not normal,” and must never be “normalized?” Well, here we are. This is it. This is the part where GloboCap restores “normality,” a “new normality,” a pathologized-totalitarian “normality,” a “normality” which tolerates no dissent and demands complete ideological conformity.

From now on, when the GloboCap Intelligence Community and their mouthpieces in the corporate media tell you something happened, that thing will have happened, exactly as they say it happened, regardless of whether it actually happened, and anyone who says it didn’t will be labeled an “extremist,” a “conspiracy theorist,” a “denier,” or some other meaningless epithet. Such un-persons will be dealt with ruthlessly. They will be censored, deplatformed, demonetized, decertified, rendered unemployable, banned from traveling, socially ostracized, hospitalized, imprisoned, or otherwise erased from “normal” society.

You will do what you are told. You will not ask questions. You will believe whatever they tell you to believe. You will believe it, not because it makes any sense, but simply because you have been ordered to believe it. They aren’t trying to trick or deceive anybody. They know their lies don’t make any sense. And they know that you know they don’t make any sense. They want you to know it. That is the point. They want you to know they are lying to you, manipulating you, openly mocking you, and that they can say and do anything they want to you, and you will go along with it, no matter how insane.

If they order you to take a fucking vaccine, you will not ask what is in the vaccine, or start whining about the “potential side effects.” You will shut up and take the fucking vaccine. If they tell you to put a mask on your kid, you will put a fucking mask on your fucking kid. You will not go digging up Danish studies proving the pointlessness of putting masks on kids. If they tell you the Russians rigged the election, then the Russians rigged the fucking election. And, if, four years later, they turn around and tell you that rigging an election is impossible, then rigging an election is fucking impossible. It isn’t an invitation to debate. It is a GloboCap-verified fact-checked fact. You will stand (or kneel) in your designated, color-coded, social-distancing box and repeat this verified fact-checked fact, over and over, like a fucking parrot, or they will discover some new mutant variant of virus and put you back in fucking “lockdown.” They will do this until you get your mind right, or you can live the rest of your life on Zoom, or tweeting content that no one but the Internet censors will ever see into the digital void in your fucking pajamas. The choice is yours … it’s is all up to you!

Or … I don’t know, this is just a crazy idea, you could turn off the fucking corporate media, do a little fucking research on your own, grow a backbone and some fucking guts, and join the rest of us “dangerous extremists” who are trying to fight back against the New Normal. Yes, it will cost you, and we probably won’t win, but you won’t have to torture your kids on airplanes, and you don’t even have to “deny” the virus!

That’s it … my last column of 2020. Happy totalitarian holidays!

  1. Without a doubt, the best article that I have read on this subject since this whole nightmare started. You hit EVERY nail right on the head.


  2. Rather to the point this article, nice, loved it.
    However I might rephrase Global Capitalism as Corporate Fascism, or Corporatism. Years ago the term was coined by Reese Mogg and others but I digress.


    1. In reality it seems the author is afraid to mention the REAL meaning of “GloboCap” and even more of writing Their names! The Secular Ruling Families owners of the MONETARY SYSTEM (the main system) are the “Globocap”. These Families are assisted by the Billionaires class. And we are just Their cattle.


  3. Picked up this fabulous read from Citizen Free Press (a new and Much, Much Better follow on to Drudge). After CFP, CJ has become my newest, bestest read on the net. Thanks CJ for a true masterpiece article. Well done, Bravo Zulu!!


  4. Reads like some “Quick notes” outline review and study of “1984,” or “Animal Farm” except it’s more timely and accurate, footed in what is happening to us right now, yesterday and sure certain tomorrow. This CJ Hopkins fella is spot on and deadly accurate. Bravo, I say Bravo.


  5. C. J. Hopkins in Berlin has a time machine that he uses not to make shitloads of money but to stop the GloboCap at Zero.


  6. My friend sent me this link. It’s a trap. It’s a regurgitation of how psychopaths want to claim power over everyone. They want you to propagate it and bring it into reality. These articles are another version of victim mentality that enables people to put responsibility outside of themselves.

    The power game played by broken psychopaths is the way it always was. Broken children who grow up and then want control over others in order to placate themselves. These are the psychopaths who are the most power hungry and they end up in government, or higher up as international bankers.

    Why is eugenics happening? Broken children who never grew up mentally are getting back at those who abused them in different ways. They don’t lie about it. Everything is in plain sight unless people are wilfully lying to themselves. But lies are necessary where reality is too uncomfortable.

    People don’t know where money comes from and what is on the other side of the balance sheet. Or what its purpose is, which is primarily a tool of distortion. Or how it works. But they enjoy the excess unearned comfort/ignorance/sin (all the same thing) that the system provides, facilitated by monetary exchange.

    People don’t know why they have the worldview that they have. But they think they are right, and they get pissed off because things are not the way their mind thinks it should be. There is a price for this ignorance.

    Less dark way of looking at it is that people have offloaded their responsibility for food and other things onto the systems regulated by government. The only responsible thing for government to do in such a scenario is to manage this herd of people who are overgrown spoilt children, like a farmer manages cows.

    This includes population control especially when food is not as abundant. Vaccines and poisoned food are some of the mechanisms by which this is achieved. I am guilty too. Took out debt. Was never taught how to do anything real like build or grow anything. Government sees people like me as parasites to be fed and managed/culled, because that is what I acted like because I was not taught anything useful.

    People can only become less ignorant and part of this is by suffering due to previous ignorance/comfort. Everything happening is necessary. All one can do is think for oneself and influence people directly. I think it’s about reality versus artifice/ignorance/comfort/outsourcing. Most important thing is to protect and educate own children.

    No longer do I don’t think about what other people should know. I don’t claim to be right about internet facts, and I don’t read stuff like this anymore. By the way nobody can force anyone to take a vaccine — but if enough people consent to it out of ignorance, then it may become a requirement in order to participate partially/wholly in babylon. That’s fine. It’s burning anyway.

  7. Thanks CJ for all your great writing this year. I am sure you have taken no small amount of flack for your positions as I have when paraphrasing your ideas which I share. It is going to be very interesting to see how 2021 unfolds. Especially when they start to enforce mandatory vaccination while presenting no evidence as to whether or not a vaccinated person can still spread the virus. Stay safe and keep up the good fight!

    1. when vaccinations starts, soon, fortunately will be a great part (the majority) of doctors and nurses will NOT be vaccinated because they don’t wants, ALL AROUND THE WESTERN WORLD!!! which is the final death of social experiments on the people.
      Then if people don’t do anything they must be aware of the fact which they are the easy door of these social experiments.
      The elites, as in french revolution, must be hanged!!! they are easy to find, they can’t be under umbrella of police because also police before or after will came to help the population to not be killed with the venom of vaccines
      …. I hope…..


  8. “The line between fascism and Fabian socialism is very thin. Fabian socialism is the dream. Fascism is Fabian socialism plus the inevitable dictator.” – John T. Flynn

    A Fascist State cannot come into being until a Corporatist State precedes it, as its foundation.

    There is nothing new about that reality. The last piece of Mussolini’s plan was when he finally managed to get the Vatican to come on board with all of the other large corporate interests in 1930’s Italy. Once that occurred, the Fascist State was born.

    Bush 2 was a Corporatist masquerading as a conservative Republican. Obama was a Corporatist masquerading as a liberal Democrat.

    It took them 16 years to get both sides of the left vs right Dialectic on board. Then the 2 large populist Black Swan’s (Brexit and Trump) came out of nowhere and threw a large spanner in the works. So they had to play their hand while showing all of their cards.

    The good news is they’ve shown their cards. The bad news is they can just dump the card table over, and start a new game.

    That’s when the shooting starts.

  9. This is the most lucid and clearest text so far about the actual situation. I translated it and would like to put on my Blog. If you say yes, I’ll make it visible there.


  10. all brilliant, thanks a lot.
    The only thing I would question is ‘the way out of the dilemma’, “..and join the rest of us “dangerous extremists” who are trying to fight back against the New Normal. Yes, it will cost you, and we probably won’t win..”
    For the right answer to that, please read Kaleb Seth Perl’s four books: “Tyranny against human consciousness”, “Welcome to the machine”, “Operation: Human Freedom” and “Own your sovereignty”.
    All best wishes and ‘good luck’.


  11. Anyone who does real research realise that what you are saying is true. And, there are numerous bloggers , from practically all over the planet, reflecting the same viewpoint. The collective ‘we’ know that the BIG controllers are using puppet politicians to relay their agenda. Meanwhile the BULK of humanity tune into the cooperate owned mass-media which results in the propaganda brainwashing them into meek submission.
    So…we have this small stream of people who know about the global manipulation and agendas, contrasted against a sea of humanity thanking the elites for their concerns/cares blinded in this Stockholm Effect. The small international stream do what we are doing now, (building-up our awareness, comforting ourselves with truth amid the lies/cover-ups, however, that’s all we do). We can’t take to the streets, our political representatives basically ignore us and we can’t relocate to a safe oasis. They have us! Resist giving ID at a shop or community facility, ‘sorry, no entry’…no public transport… maybe no financial support…That’s why those compounds are going up everywhere. Even down here in safe, quiet care-free Australia.

  12. I read the article twice, perhaps still missed a point? I do not grasp the “why”.
    They gave us a lesson. Hm, may be.
    But why, if it be so much better to let us believe we are the ones who order?
    There must have been a “good” reason why they suddenly showed their teeth and distroyed our delusion.
    The article explains this? If so, I missed the point.
    What is threatening the globocap? Trump? They invented Covid19 in order to facilitate postal ballot voting thus having a means to pull Trump off the office??
    That seems a new version of “we (here USA) are the center of the world”.
    It kind of misses that this is a global phenomenon. Whom do they want to pull off in Europe? Cant see any enemy there for their interests.

    From my certainly limited knowledge, what makes sense to me is: we need an economic reset.
    The debt of world’s largest economies is a problem, to say the least.
    They know the problem, for years.
    We know the problem for years, don’t we?
    But we deny any solution, don’t we? Instead, we ask our governments to continue with their spending politics.
    We think, well, perhaps I will come away with this (my children already not so likely but … who cares).
    They think, this folk is not willing to take a cut and this way we may lose control over the matters.
    So, let’s be proactive and put them in their place which is the place of irresponsible idiots who believe in printed money.
    And they continue, let’s get rid of a part of these idiots and put the rest into dependence.
    Then we may restructure the world financial system in a way that is sustainable (for us).
    I totally understand their intentions but I do not agree, even though I have to agree that most of us do not merit any better treatment.
    So, who is responsible?


  13. My wife (a native German) is convinced things won’t get so bad in Germany itself. Meanwhile, half of NRW was under a 9 p.m.curfew on NYE, with sales of fireworks and alcohol banned, and we are now being forced to register our kid for virtual learning, as NRW schools are closed for another month. Once they have us registered, ofc, it is not only easier for them to continue the sham lockdowns, but we are further integrated into the exciting New Normal of the Great Reset, where our lives go binary.

    The global capitalists own Germany. The voices of resistance within the power structure are too few, and the populace for all of its collective Ausbildung too dense.


  14. I’m wondering when the uninformed people in the military will wake up and realize how used and abused they have been, and get out of that abuse.
    When they finally realize how they have been used and abused, for reasons they probably don’t agree with, there should be a mass exodus from the military.
    Then there will be no more endless wars, or abuse of the rest of society. One can only hope…
