Every year, the Economist shows their “cover for that year”. Not in December at the end of the year, but before the year starts. They suggest, to have a serious opinion about what lies ahead of us, in terms of developments in the world.
How can they do that? Either they are truly gifted, or they admit to manipulating world events beforehand. The latter is less complicated. It only requires control of politicians and secret services, who together can manipulate world events.
Yes, the Economist does this every year. And every year journalists try and interprete what is “planned for us” that year. Well, I am not wasting my time again. I do want the readers to realize, this is what they try and do.
These are tarot cards, but adjusted to include en contemporary twist.
- The Tower.
- The World.
- The Hermit.
- The Magician.
- Wheel of Fortune.
- The Star.
The Wheel of Fortune is often seen as major change. Tied to the Wheel of Fortune is President of the French National Front Marine Le Pen and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The third person holds the Dutch flag. In that case, you would expect Mark Rutte tied to the Wheel, but to me it looks like Plasterk or maybe Wilders. The card suggests a major change in power on European grounds. With the BREXIT ahead of us, this could make sense. Also, in 2017 there are elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany, in that order. So for the wheel to be correct (in terms of order in which the are tied to the wheel and change might be exected), the wheel must turn counterclockwise and feet go first. The Dutch flags suggests the wheel turns clockwise (heads first).
