I saw and yes hold on, a snippet of an article in the Swedish MSM talking about above?!! Obviously this text was not written by a Swede, or? This was my first hunch anyway only seeing a snippet..
.... and so I was spot on!! After buying a 2 months subscription I could access the full piece! The article was actually translatet by a Torbjörn Isaksson who found the publicated text in Medium?! That was the only reference I found about the text.. no link what so ever to the original article?!
This news outlet Svd Näringsliv (Svenska Dagbladet Business) leans more towards business then anything and they have been writing about the banking system to some extent in the past if I remember correctly.
Here is the first snippet of text that caught my attention...
How do I survive the downfall and how do I pay my security force when money has become useless? The questions from the financial elite surprise Professor Douglas Rushkoff. This is his story and reflections on their future anxiety and plan for survival according to what they call the "event", caused by the breakdown of the atmosphere, nuclear explosion, or an unstoppable virus.

From the article page:
"The American Douglas Rushkoff, 57 years, is professor of media theory and digital economics at the City University of New York, Queens College. He lectures on, among other things, community development and has written several books, such as "throwing rocks at the Google Bus " and "Present Shock. " He also writes recurring in British the Guardian."
Why on Earth does a Swedish journalist want to translate an article talking about things like this if not trying to tell us something??
Ok lets dive more into the article .. here some more quotes..
Last year I was invited as a keynote speaker to an exclusive private resort. I assumed there would be hundreds of investment bankers in place. The compensation for sharing my insights under the heading "The Future of Technology" was by far the highest I have ever offered – about half of my annual salary as a professor.
I have never liked to talk about the future. Question Time usually ends as a kind of board game where I am expected to express my views on the latest modern word in technology: block chains, 3d printing, CRISPR...
In addition, the audience is rarely interested in learning about these techniques or their potential effects, at least not beyond the binary choice if they are to invest in them or not. But money is money, so I took on the mission.
When I arrived, I was piloted to a room where I thought I would wait until it became my turn to speak. But instead of getting a microphone and being brought up to a stage, I ended up at a regular round table with my audience: five Super rich but – yes, it's just but – from the Hedge fund world top layers.
The Event was their rewriting for environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, unstoppable virus or some sort of robot that destroys everything.
After some small talk, I realized that they had no interest in the presentation that I prepared for the future of technology. They had come to get answers to their own questions.
They began rather innocently. Ethereum or Bitcoin? What did I think about quantum calclulating? Slowly but surely they approached the subjects that really interested them:
Which region will be affected at least by the forthcoming climate crisis: New Zealand or Alaska?
Does Google really build a home for Ray Kurzweils Brain (American futurist, Reds note.), and will his consciousness survive, or will it die and reborn again?
Finally, the CEO of a finance company explained that he had almost completed the construction of his own underground bunker system. He asked straight up and down: "How do I maintain control of my security force after the event? "
This is very interesting cause it only underlines how narrow their thinking is. This is also one of the reason why we have not yet build a world that benefits all .. cause we have road blocks like artificially wealthy people "calling the shots" by their limited thinking!!
Professor Rushkoff also says the following... "The Tv series "Westworld " ended its second season with the ultimate revelation: people are simpler and more predictable than the artificial intelligence's we create. "
Now the content of this article and the timing of the posting of it.. makes my jaw drop.. I still firmly believe we have seen nothing yet when it comes to our potential.. look at Europe and the US, people are waking up .. and not taking the establishments bullshit anymore.. France is a perfect example.. if you think this is about tax hikes you are simply not informed... in the meanwhile Sweden did not have a proper government for over 70 days after the general elections!!!
If people only knew about the SSP(Secret Space Programs) programs and other burried tech.. they would simply don't be afraid of the future!!
Nothing to see here keep moving.. :oP
