Ten Predictions For 2014

Ten Predictions For 2014

By Activist Post
December 30, 2013

As this year comes to a close it is once again time to reflect,
learn from events, and plan for a new year with some
predictions.

Without question, 2013 was not the best year for freedom,
economic prosperity or peace.

The police state has gotten more militarized, intrusive and
violent.

More laws against protesting and press freedoms infested the
Western world.

More money was funneled from the poor to the rich.

And more war was waged with a careless joystick trigger finger.

It is often difficult to see the bright side amid such a maelstrom
of injustice, until one realizes that the greater the oppression
grows, the closer we are to reversing the trend.

2013 also gave us many reasons to be optimistic about the
future for peace, love, and liberty.

In 2013, we witnessed a global uprising to halt unprovoked
military action in Syria.

The powers-that-be demanded war and the people said no.

For those keeping track, it's the first time in history that's
ever happened on a global scale.

Also in 2013, we saw the rise of a global peer-to-peer barter
economy and Bitcoin, which level the economic playing field
much like the Internet did for information dissemination.

The media this year was clearly dominated by the independent
media with the help of whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.

In dictatorial fashion the US government blocked millions of
computers from viewing NSA abuse articles and it was still by
far the biggest story of the year.

There's tremendous momentum for the alternative media going
into 2014.

Finally, the militarized police state is being opposed just as fast
as it is being built.

Its unjustified presence is accelerating the support for ending the
war on drugs and calling into question the role of police in society,
as well as the need for further runaway prison expansion.

We have nearly reached the zenith of the ability for the few
to control the many.

This is evidenced by their great desperation manifesting in
overtly insane and despotic behavior.

2014 will be pivotal. But this is mostly cause for optimism.

That said, there is no question who still currently holds the keys
to unleashing truly devastating weapons, both virtual and real.

2014 certainly could see the realization of something horrible
as the cornered beast lashes out.

Their options to maintain control are becoming scarce, however.

Short of a total Internet take down, full-scale banking collapse,
or the use of a large-scale and devastating false flag event (EMP,
nuclear, "alien"), the elite controllers will almost surely continue
to lose their grip on humanity.

The victories we have experienced in previous years by pressuring
the ruling elite out into the open for all to see is irreversible.

Nearly all establishment institutions are now held in wide disregard
and condemnation for their corruption, dishonesty, manipulation,
ineptitude, and subversion of universal human rights.

2014 very well could mark the critical battle between the dinosaur
system of the feudal elite milking the "commoners", and the
evolution of a new open-source, peer-to-peer model of prosperity
that trusts the power of individual creativity, reputation, and
planet-wide cooperation toward solutions that begin from the
bottom up.

The pyramid of power has been wobbled by pressure from the
bottom in 2013.

We believe that 2014 is the year when that structure begins to
fall.

Here are 10 predictions for 2014:

1. Obamacare Nightmare

The implementation and enforcement of Obamacare will be a
catastrophic failure in 2014.

It will lead to a political awakening on the Left who in large numbers
will lose faith in the ruling class to solve this and other problems.

Some will attempt to offer a solution of a single-payer option like
Medicare for all, which will seem to temporarily calm the storm.

That is until everyone realizes they'll be required by law to accept
"mandated" treatments and untreatments (death panels).

We must, as individuals, become healthier in order to weather
the coming healthcare storm.

2. Growth of Independent Media

2013 saw record traffic to independent media outlets.

Also, big names like Ben Swann and Amber Lyon became
independents.

David Icke's non-profit, uncensored media project The People's
Voice raised over $400K in crowdfunding and launched in 2013.

Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill announced plans for a new
media platform in 2014.

Are these biased, activist reporters? Yes, and thank goodness.

The very fact that there is a growing market for peace and liberty
information is a bellwether for where we're heading as a society.

3. Wide Adoption of Cryptocurrencies

The wild volatility of Bitcoin and its competing cryptocurrencies
has overshadowed the ideological and technological revolution
that has been unleashed.

While many have focused merely on the monetary value of Bitcoin,
we predict that a new wave of understanding will mark the wide
adoption and perhaps the stabilization of the cryptocurrency economy.

Central banks have been exposed all across the planet for the
thieves they are.

People are realizing who the true enemy really is, and they are
beginning to feel empowered by the ability to disrupt that predatory
system.

All they needed was a choice to opt out, and now they have it.

4. The Awakened Take Action

It seems like the whole world is in a state of civil unrest.

It is precisely what arch-globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski warned
his cohorts of.

People are tired of talking and they have lost too much.

Violated, hungry people have nothing to lose by directly
confronting their oppressors.

This does not have to mean physical violence, but it does mean
physical demonstrations of power and a refusal to remain quiet.

We also believe that people will become clearer about making
specific demands, rather than merely being satisfied to show
their outrage.

5. More Whistleblowers Come Forward

2013 may very well go down as the year of the whistleblower;
Edward Snowden being the most prominent among them.

As more people view Snowden as a hero for giving a face
and voice to the human right to privacy, we expect more
whistleblowers to put their lives on the line to expose
hidden truths.

Consequently, we will shift closer to more transparency for
the top and more privacy for citizens; the way a free society
is supposed to function.

6. Expansion of Open-Source Technology

2013 was an incredible year in the area of 3D printing.

We saw the rise and subsequent stifling of 3D printed weapons,
but the technology is still out there and is increasingly open and
falling in cost.

Inventors are launching open-source vehicles, alternative energy
generators, and so much more.

2014 will be a truly breakout year for 3D printing especially, as
well as open-source technologies for everything from farming
to governance.

7. Manufactured Tension With China

We have heard the rhetoric of wars, economic and military,
with China beginning to escalate toward the end of 2013.

We happen to believe that an outright war with China is
very unlikely.

China is part of the very same centralized control system
as the West.

In other words, Coca Cola who just invested $4 billion in China
doesn't want to lose that market and vice versa, so there will
be no war.

Therefore any aggression with China should be viewed as complete
theater to maintain control of domestic populations on both sides.

Rather, we will probably continue to see a series of calculated
economic moves on both sides that tip the balance of "super"
power away from America and toward China.

Nothing new here.

8. Economic Crisis

Some form of great economic crisis is probable in 2014.

Perhaps it will be many small dominoes that lead to something
bigger, but it will no doubt manifest as centralized theft and
more controls.

The kickoff could be the Fed's tapering of quantitative easing
which could crush the momentum in stock markets around the
world.

Or it could be the next battle to raise the US debt ceiling
in February.

As mentioned above, it could be an extension of moves
already made by China.

Whatever the trigger, expect and plan accordingly for more bank
bailouts and bailings, higher food and energy prices, less jobs and
more capital controls, all while fiat currencies continue their steady
or abrupt decline.

9. Attempted Crackdown On Internet Freedom

Warnings of imminent cyber attack and other infrastructure
weakness herald an attempt at a full-scale military takeover
of the Internet.

However, such an extreme measure is probably unlikely in
the short term.

More likely, what will come first is an extension of the attempt to
criminalize whistleblowers, as well as imposing Dianne Feinstein's
suggestion that there be government-approved journalists.

Coupled with the severe penalties for copyright infringement
and other methods of backdoor censorship contained in the
Trans-Pacific Partnership, and 2014 could see a new level of
information warfare.

10. False Flag Watch

As alluded to above, warnings of imminent cyber attacks or a
so-called Pearl Harbor for the Internet have been broadcast by
US security officials for some time.

In our opinion, an attack on the Internet is the most probable
false flag event for 2014.

If it happens, it won't be long before world leaders demand
ending online anonymity.

Also, small, FBI-orchestrated bombers and shooters may make
an appearance as well, but it worked so poorly for them in 2013
to move policy that we think there'll be less of those types of
false flags in 2014.

Finally, the biggest false flag could be whatever economic crisis
manifests in 2014 (see #8).

At minimum, expect desperate manipulation by Wall Street and
Central Banks.

As fragile and interconnected as things are, one spark can set
off the powder keg.

Many of these predictions might seem like wishful thinking,
but to admit that we are powerless to affect change is only
to embrace our own destruction.

We have enough evidence of that already.

And to ignore our victories, no matter how small, is to consign
ourselves to fear, defeatism and worthlessness.

We would do well to identify positive developments and trends,
shifting our focus to the areas we can improve upon, while having
the courage to ignore the increasingly irrelevant concept of power
coming only from the top.

The elite mindset and the top-down philosophy will never disappear
entirely, but it is up to us to build something better and render that
outdated form of control powerless.
