As a graduate from two top US universities, the School of International Service – SIS – from the American University and the Paul Nitze School of Advanced International Studies – SAIS – from Johns Hopkins University, I can confirm that every word spoken by Gonzalo Lira are true and spot on. Listen to the man, every word he says is 100% true!
Gonzalo needs to exercise. He’s under enormous stress and there is no better way to dissipate it. Healthy body, healthy mind, all that shite.
Plus, can someone get him a weapon, please? I’m scared for him.
I guess your American. Arming him would make him an enemy combatant in hostile territory and his life expectancy would drop to zero. Are you trying to get him killed ?
Having a gun (i.e. at home) is something. Carrying a gun around is something else. Go safari with machine guns, in an under siege city (like Kharkov) is the thing that can, sure enough, get you killed. So, I think having a gun in home doesn’t hurt. And by the way, who said Gonzalo doesn’t have one? A good old AK-47 is a “must have” in a fvcked up zone.
You are only half right. Exercise is very good for you if not overdone but you cannot fix a terrible diet with exercise.
In all the G8 countries if you eat in restaraunts and or cook only pre processed boxed food, you are destined for heart disease and cancer etc etc.
not sure about food quality in Ukraine though?
The current Western/Russian diet is carbo-heavy – that will cause obesity, and poluted, that can be cleaned out with detox.
Animal fat is presented as a “bad diet”, while it is healthy, Bacon is good. Source Joel Wallack / youngevity.
He can bullshit his way out. A gun will not help if shiet hits the fan.
When Gonzalo used the Hedge Fund example, it reminded me of a scene in Oliver Stone’s movie Wall Street (1987).
In the scene the villain character Gordon Gekko said “You want to why fund managers cannot beat the S&P 500? Because they are sheep, and sheep get slaughtered”.
– why fund managers cannot beat the S&P 500?
There is no way to beat S&P500.
If some company like Apple is making tons of money they will put Apple into S&P500, so S&P500 will reflect Apple. And if some company is going burst they will remove that company from S&P500.
While we other have to predict Apple will go North and the other company will go South to make money.
If 50% of the companies in US are losing money S&P500 will still go to the moon.
Let us test that theory:
S&P500 2020-02-10 = 3380
S&P500 2022-03-23 = 4543
Fortune 500 companies are getting zero interest loans from the FED.
With that money they are buying up their own stocks inflating the stock price, when its high enough they sell it to losers, they get real money and gold for a few virtual ones and zeros.
Thats how stock bubbles are created.
You really thought Facebook has the same worth as Toyota or the VW Group whom each manufacture 13million cars per year?
Its smoke and mirrors.
There is no real production behind the U.S. GDP.
They export less than Germany.
The U.S. economy cant compete with the EU or China.
Thats why they are creating conflicts and wars all over the planet taking out or weakening their competition.
And many dint even realize whats happening.
For example the UK and German leadership are total braindead.
France knows exactly whats happening but they are coward opportunists.
The U.S. is dead man walking.
With these sanctions on half the planet they are shooting themselves in the foot which is no very smart when you are already in your knees.
There is a global shift happening and the best part is the crumbling americant empire thinks they are winning.
– There is no real production behind the U.S. GDP
That will be another narrative. My narrative was the Gordon Gekko angle:
1. If one bought 1 contract size $1000 on S&P 500 2020 (from example), and used X2 leverage (which is offered by them all, even X10) …
2. That contract would have been worth $1680 today
3. Even with 10% inflation that +$680 is fantastic return (ROI), and better than buying Sberbank shares (most profitable business in Russia?)
The return on Bitcoin vas -4% YTD, and -20% for 12 months.
The magic here is Bitcoin is basically nothing except a rip off for some brokers, USD / EURO / RUB have no annual return, while S&P 500 is better than money in the bank.
We have learned Bitcoin rally has been financed by stablecoins – that was pure paper (think mafia operation)
S&P500 bottomline. Buying S&P500 with leverage will make you tons of money. Buying real estate will be boring compared to S&P500.
90 mins to learn that the West has no moral compass & dare not be second rate communists, but missing that YouTube is the ultimate conformity to their tribe. Offers of nudging the pilgrims to share the world wide wealth decade after decade were spurned & lost, like themselves, at last. All this from Kyiv celebrating corruption 0_0 – 250yrs of centuries of competitive sadness was never life
Great video. Good to see I’m not the only dissident out there. Interresting observations.
In my opinion the education system has been going down the drain after the end of the cold war. It was accelerated with the ‘bologna?’ standardization of uni degrees, anglofied. I was considering going back to uni a decade ago, not for a degree … but to study a variety of diverse topics of interesst. No longer possible. Discovered the universities where no longer a place of learning and discovery, but a factory pumping out robots according to the specs of corporations. The focus was shifted from learning for the sake of learning, to getting the skillset for a job.
The degree production have significantly increased, and we never before had such an ‘educated’ population. The minimal standards have of course needed to be lowred to achieve this result, that comes on to of studies showing that the general IQ level in western societies have been in steady decline since the 70’s.
I’m more optimistic long term about the future of the US, and the west in general. One of the problems with Empires is that at some point it goes from being a profitable venture for the center as it expands, however at some point it turns into an unprofitable loss making operation. The Empire seems to have hit the wall with Russia. The rasjonal thing to do is, like the Soviet Union, to peacefully abandon empire. There will be an adjustment period while societies adjust from a external plundering way of life to one of producing true wealth again. The US can come out of this in a cleansed way, like Russia without the Soviet.
Is this guy delusional? he cant be 3-4 std deviations smarter than average? ! what 145-160 IQ man cant see how wrong his statement is or could be?
in what world does photoshopped childpord not hurt anyone? I would say, alot of them !
it could hurt everyone, whose face is attached to the person in said photos with the child !?
this is probly the basis of 25% of the blackmailed politicians, who thought they were having drinks with a beautiful adult woman with a sexy accent only to wake up 12 hrs later with a severe hangover in their hotel room with glossy photos of themselves doing nasty things to children. Now some maybe all those pics could be photoshopped, I would think in 99% of cases its gonna be easier to fake photos like this than to convicne even a severely drunk politician to do nasty sexual things to children.
hell they can even video photoshop you into supposed live action fake videos.
the average person with a blacked out memory will not know for sure what happened, if anything? !
I think this guy is a confidence trickster. Isn’t it obvious how he weaves a story to “hook the viewer in” ~ to get them on-side . . and then he can come out with wacko “insights”, like this one about Photoshop/KiddiePorn.
I don’t see how someone in the 3% IQ range would take so long to verbalize obvious common sense the way he does.
But hey, if you like your ego stroked then go for it.
Another relevant talk – https://youtu.be/S4EwvZuROfk
Relevant to what, sadness? Why should I click on your link? Say something, explain why you post it, or it is useless.
Credible explanation of why elites support similar policies and memes. But thinking of them as schools of fish just explains how changes of direction happen, not why.
If I understand conspiracy theories at all, most would not deny Gonzalo Liras ideas of the elite. Rather, they would additionally/initially look for explanations of who leads and profits from the direction(s) in which these elites are being driven.
– If I understand conspiracy theories at all
Now they teach “conspiracy theory psychology” at the campuses ???
Next they will teach “Russia collusion denialism” …
It so, Gonzalo Lira got everything right
Besides his foul potty mouth, he is spot on. Clever, yet outcast. Everything resonates with my own experience of US and UK ivy league universities, military service and subsequent officer training and career, and business career in private multinational corporations.
Large number, if not the majority, but almost, of people I have encountered over the years, are all zombies and drones, fearful, morally corrupt, untrustworthy, mortgage paying slaves. Few I would bring with me to the trenches. It’s getting worse.
Somewhat related… I have over the years known a lot of russian people, and among them i still have an unproportionally large number of friends that would die for me, and vice versa. No one of my fellow European or American acquaintances would do the same for me.
Interesting. First time Ive ever listened to the guy. I enjoyed it. I tend to switch off if I dont.and I listened all the way through and its now 3.40 am here in the UK. Spot on. Made a lot of sense to me . I will be looking out for his stuff.
This is good — I am a man of Gonzalo’s generation, albeit not American, but a civil servant, and my life experiences put me in the same camp as him. “You can tell the truth or move up!” His life story is a cautionary tale for our children.
However, there is another way — hide your idiosyncratic tendencies behind technical brilliance. Take Yannis Varoufakis, or his fellow economist Bill Mitchell (the Australian MMT genius): each were rewarded permanent positions within the academy based on their technical expertise — Varoufakis in game theory and other math, and Bill Mitchell for his expertise in econometric modelling and other math (I understand) — and that allowed them the freedom subsequently to criticize and diverge from our sociopathic orthodoxy. Apparently, when he was hired into a tenured position in Australia, Varoufakis’s new colleagues had NO IDEA of his left-leaning opposition to the status quo, because they considered him only in the light of his technical brilliance. And they were dismayed to find that he was “secretely” a free-thinker and critic of existing power structures.
However, we cannot all be Mitchells or Varoufakises, so only few greats, like those two, sneak through.
But there has to be some group of people who are really above the school of fish in the west who really know what’s going on but are just evil maybe? Perhaps like the sociopaths he mentions that are just mimicking the others. Is it really just fish all the way to the top? Im drunk.
All hereditary elites degenerate.
I watched through the whole two hours of Gonzalo Lira’s latest video from Kharkov. Definitely worth watching.
I disagree with him only on two small details.
It is well known which side the Maidan snipers were working for, as well as the nationalities of some of the killers. The Georgians have confessed to taking part.
There is absolutely no reason to believe that the Russian Federation had anything to do with recording or releasing Nuland’s “Fuck the EU” tape. Every telephone network has facilities for lawful interception. It is also one of the requirements in the GSM standard for mobile networks.
The recording and the release happened before the coup, during the Yanukovych regime. It is known that the SBU under Yanukovych was infested with NATO traitors. But in any case, they would have been recording both Nuland’s and Pyatt’s telephone calls if they were made over Ukrainian mobile service providers. But there is no need even to assume secret intelligence services were involved. Lawful interception is intended for normal police work. Euromaidan was a criminal enterprise. Victoria Nuland should have been tapped and recorded like any common criminal.
Accusing Russian intelligence services of Nuland’s phone comes from the in ´ability of Westerners to distinguish the Russian “Ukraine” from the Russian Federation. Of course everyone involved spoke Russian.
I agree with everything Gonzalo says except for the issue about the development of square melons. The action of Asians who do this, is a sign of good lateral and innovative thinking.and not of system pigs… Those he rejects as following the herd-mentality would not develop such innovations but stick to the simpler traditional route…
I too went through an ‘elite’ school. When there is a Founders Day event, i like to go back and see how things have shaped up since i was there. No one has yet been able to tell me why a private school is called a ‘public school’ …also one issue that disturbed me when i attended the school was the extreme regimentation…one tiny deviation from any dress code, be it school uniform, gym kit or CCF uniform and the teachers became tyrants. But the school was boasting publicly of breeding individualism and free-thinking. I got my free-thinking by rebelling against the restrictions.
In this aspect i was pleasantly surprised when the modern teachers told me that the dress code was not the most important issue since there were too many other topics to worry about nowadays.”
I emphasise fully with Gonzalo that there is no point in being a political animal and becoming a company manager as this position stifles enterprise… backstabbing and intrigues being the norm, …i prefer to be called in when things go totally wrong and gain funds by advising management of the most obvious things that they could do, to improve their business. But, at the same time, the insight i gain into the incompetence and hubris within most organisations, does still shock. One key thing i learnt was that Americans hate hearing bad news. They prefer living in a fantasy world of their own creation.
Excellent talk. I grew up under the same system. I was edged out. God forbid you question the idiots talking at you. Our sham of a government is largely based on nepotism and unfortunately their offspring are much dumber and drugged out than the previous generation. They truly don’t have any understanding or concern for that matter for anyone but themselves.
