The controlled explosion that is Sri Lanka


A ‘PERFECT storm’ has struck Sri Lanka. A prime target of the globalists’ Great Reset project, this island off the southern tip of India has always attracted imperialists. Following the Romans, Arab merchants, the Danes, Portuguese and the British, after a few decades of independence the country invited in the Chinese government with its Belt and Road infrastructure scheme, resulting in dependence through debt.  

How can a storm be ‘perfect’? A simple meaning is a combination of adversities arising simultaneously, overwhelming the victim. But the wave that swept over Sri Lanka was no accident. The contrived crises of Covid-19 and climate change created the context for a controlled explosion.

Problem-reaction-solution is the globalists’ modus operandi. The problem, quite unnecessary in a land which thrived on tourism and natural produce, began when president Gotabaya Rajapaksa believed the World Economic Forum’s promise that his country would be rich by 2025. The way to wealth was the green economy, and the Colombo government banned chemical fertilisers. The consequence was a failed rice crop, causing Sri Lanka to import its staple food. This exacerbated the economic devastation of the collapse of tourism due to Covid restrictions.  

When I travelled around Sri Lanka back in 2008 the country was a mixture of modernity and timeless tradition: buses bearing both Virgin Mary and Buddhist icons, gleaming towers in the capital overlooking hovels and litter-strewn markets, sewage odours and air-conditioned malls, and a lush interior bordered by a relentlessly overdeveloped coast. I was struck by the ubiquitous propaganda of a ‘socialist’ state: public services appeared basic, and tuk-tuk drivers laughed when I asked about social welfare. No work, no food on the table. 

Civil unrest, as predicted rather too confidently by WEF leader Klaus Schwab, is an inevitable reaction to the radical changes brought by the Great Reset. Loss of livelihood and hunger are strong motives for revolt. After the International Monetary Fund declared Sri Lanka’s debt unsustainable, the government was forced to tell the nation that no more fuel could bought, and the filling station pumps ran dry. Hundreds of thousands of Sri Lankans took to the streets, looking for political leaders to lynch. At least 38 elected politicians’ homes were burned down and the presidential palace was stormed, police helpless to intervene. Rajapaksa fled the country with only a suitcase, while citizens celebrated in his swimming pool.

Interim president Ranil Wickremesinghe talked tough, describing rioters as ‘fascists’. His efforts to quell the uprising have made the authorities more hated, but facing acute shortages of food and fuel, the people were desperate. The country has not yet descended into martial law, but something more insidious has been imposed: the National Fuel Pass. The only way to get petrol will be though rationing linked to the national identification database. No QR code, no fuel.

Launched in Colombo last Monday, the quota regime requires owners of vehicles to register with police. By Thursday the scheme had extended to all 25 districts and the Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera said that 4.25million users have registered on the platform. 158,208 users obtained Fuel with the Fuel Pass QR during the day (27) – – Sri Lanka’s Leading News Site | Breaking News Updates | Latest News Headlines The solution has clearly been instilled. How did people survive before QR codes?

Digital control of fuel enables the government to change availability and permitted amounts with ease. In an emergency only selected workers may be allowed to buy petrol or diesel, and it is no stretch of the imagination to envisage bans on dissidents, protesters or other undesirable elements of society. It is understandable that Sri Lankans signed on to the fuel register. But around the world, people fall too easily for the digital trap, using cards instead of cash, waving their mobile phone to gain entry to events. Every activity and every purchase is recorded by the state, and can thus be monitored and controlled. People unwittingly put themselves at the mercy of their masters.

A digital cage is being erected, with you inside. Your smartphone is becoming a ball and chain, a device that contributes your data to a mass surveillance network. Technology is exploited for the globalists’ design of the Great Reset, which is radically changing society and the status of citizens. The Chinese social credit system, a horrific prospect to the West when introduced a few years ago, is now a model for all but the elite. This cannot be dismissed as paranoia or conspiracy theory: it is already happening.

With surging inflation and soaring heating costs, the West is in for a rude awakening. By problem-reaction-solution, our leaders want us to feel pain. They want us to revolt. Unless we can overcome the dystopian new world order, the solution will be much worse than the problem, as the Sri Lankans are finding out.
