SELCO: People with a “Perfect Solution” Will Use Our Hard Times to Take Control
by Selco Begovic
In the last few months, I saw several people dying from COVID. The last one that I saw was a big man in his 50s. He did not die easily. He fought for his life while he was suffocating from fluids in lungs that did not work.
One moment there was a will to live in his eyes. The next moment there was nothing.
I saw much more than several people suffering at their homes, diagnosed with the same illness. Some of them had a whole bunch of other medical conditions, like diabetes, or high blood pressure, or COPD, or something else.
Mostly they are older folks, but there are young ones among them, too.
I also saw cases of people being sick but their closest contacts like a spouse being healthy, not positive on tests.
I heard whole bunch of theories, from blaming 5G networks to absolutely ignoring the disease and calling it fake. I have been through living in total curfew (because COVID) to total the government totally ignoring it and acting like nothing happened.
Whatever actually happens, and whatever the exact reason is for this, it is clear that it is BAD and it brings resources to the breaking point, much faster and much worse then is portrayed in media.
Public opinion is easy to form, and it is quite easy to “push” people like sheep in the wanted direction if you have enough power to do it. If you have that power you can do stuff that in normal times you could not imagine.
The greatest motivator for that is fear, and among all fears, the greatest one is fear of the unknown.
Through all the happenings in the last few months, the general public feeling is that they are not sure where all this will lead, and how all this might end.
They are in fear of the unknown, and how that unknown future is going to reflect on their lives, jobs, families, and in relation to the world scene…
There is rage in people that boiling under the surface, because they are afraid, and they want their “known future” back.
In the last few weeks, I saw riots erupt every single day because people lost their confidence in how the situation was being handled here with all events. People went out in the streets in big numbers, kicking police, smashing windows… I think the main reason for it was the feeling that their lives are being taken away, or to put it more clearly their future is getting taken from their hands by the people who do not know what they do.
So folks went out on the streets, letting that rage out on the system
It is nothing particularly new. When emotions like rage and fear erupt after boiling for a long time, these things happen.
There’s always someone with a “perfect solution.”
What I noticed too is among a huge mass of those people there were movements with ideas that are very violent and radical, trying to take that rage and fear of the common folks and use it in their favor, in order to steer people. They want to “ride” on the common folk’s rage and fear, and they want to get more power.
So they can rule.
That is nothing new either. It happened through history frequently. In very hard times, a movement with a dangerous and radical agenda took all those people’s desperation, rage, and fear and used it in their favor.
Who would people listen to during hard and desperate times? A movement with radical ideas that promises a solution to all problems, of course.
It is the perfect time for movements, or people, or some man with “solutions” to everything. What you just have to do is to follow their ideas. Yeah, some of those ideas sound…hmmm… maybe weird, or a bit radical, but what the hell? I mean those folks will “save us”, right?
I am afraid of those “perfect solutions” that are coming, at least coming here in my region. Who knows, maybe those “perfect solutions” are coming everywhere.
It is not about conspiracy theories now. It is about how much people must be desperate in order to accept something which in essence could be even worse than the actual situation?
How desperate must a family man who has lost his job, home, health, and safe future be in order to accept something which is, at its very essence, wrong?
Is all this only a prelude to something even worse after which we will all welcome the “solution”?
I do not know.
What the future holds
As things continue to erode here, I feel like I know less.
Or maybe in a way, I want to know less about things that I cannot change, and I invest more in things that I can change.
And again, as much I do not know exactly what the future will bring, I am positive it is not going to be good. Too many things are happening. Too many people are losing everything, including hope.
I am kinda waiting for something that will be even worse than this.
Maybe it is about my gut feeling. Maybe it is things that I experienced in my past, or maybe I am simply wrong here, but I think in the next period of time we are gonna witness major changes in our lives worldwide.
It can happen suddenly, or gradually, but it will happen for sure. We are just not able to see it because too many things are happening around us. We are overwhelmed by current events.
I am not talking about the end of the world. I am talking about the hard times that are coming. Even harder times than these we face today. On the positive side we are into preparing for hard times, so do not be surprised by what comes next.
Be ahead of the majority of others who are not aware of how things will get worse.
