October 3, 2021 | Norway Abandons all Restrictions & US Turns Authoritarian

Martin Armstrong

Martin Arthur Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed.

QUESTION: Hi Martin,

You’ve taught the current “loss of confidence in government” cycle doesn’t peak until 2032.

Are you surprised how much confidence has been lost and how authoritative government has become this early in the cycle?

Hell, it’s only 2021 and it’s already a shit show.

ANSWER: No. Everything is on track. Even the forecast from 1985 that the 2016 election would be the first opportunity for a third party president to take office. That was indeed Trump. Forget if you liked or hated him. He was the FIRST nonpolitician to ever take office who also was not elected because he was a military general like Washington of Eisenhow. He took office right to the day of the Pi Target in this wave – 1985.65 + 31.4. = 2017.05. We should have entered the authoritarian phase in 2020. That has unfolded. They are using Biden as a puppet. He just reads the cards and goes from they will never impose mandatory vaccines to fining companies $70,000 per incident for an employee refusing to be vaccinated. What the hell is so dam important with the vaccines?


Norway has dropped all restrictions because the death rate is no worse than the flu. This COVID mandate is clearly for some nefarious political agenda, which has yet to come out.


Now we have Panic Cycles in politics for the first time since the 1930s. These are due in 2022 and 2023. This has been laid out in this year’s WEC reports.

    With COVID-19, we have a novel virus that spreads rapidly and easily. The full spectrum of symptoms and health effects is only just beginning to be cataloged, much less understood.
    So far the symptoms may include:
    Acute respiratory distress
    Lung damage (potentially permanent)
    Loss of taste (a neurological symptom)
    Sore throat
    Difficulty breathing
    Mental confusion
    Nausea or vomiting
    Loss of appetite
    Strokes have also been reported in some people who have COVID-19 (even in the relatively young)
    Swollen eyes
    Blood clots
    Liver damage
    Kidney damage
    COVID toes (weird, right?)

    People testing positive for COVID-19 have been documented to be sick even after 60 days. Many people are sick for weeks, get better, and then experience a rapid and sudden flare up and get sick all over again. A man in Seattle was hospitalized for 62 days, and while well enough to be released, still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Not to mention a $1.1 million medical bill.

    Then there is MIS-C. Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. Children with MIS-C may have a fever and various symptoms, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes, or feeling extra tired. While rare, it has caused deaths.

    This disease has not been around for years. It has basically been 6 months. No one knows yet the long-term health effects, or how it may present itself years down the road for people who have been exposed. We literally *do not know* what we do not know.

    For those in our society who suggest that people being cautious are cowards, for people who refuse to take even the simplest of precautions to protect themselves and those around them, I want to ask, without hyperbole and in all sincerity:

    How dare you?
    How dare you risk the lives of others so cavalierly. How dare you decide for others that they should welcome exposure as “getting it over with”, when literally no one knows who will be the lucky “mild symptoms” case, and who may fall ill and die. Because while we know that some people are more susceptible to suffering a more serious case, we also know that 20 and 30-year-olds have died, marathon runners and fitness nuts have died, children and infants have died.
    How dare you behave as though you know more than medical experts, when those same experts acknowledge that there is so much we don’t yet know, but with what we DO know, are smart enough to be scared of how easily this is spread, and recommend baseline precautions such as:

    Frequent hand-washing
    Physical distancing
    Reduced social/public contact or interaction
    Mask wearing
    Covering your cough or sneeze
    Avoiding touching your face
    Sanitizing frequently touched surfaces

    The more things we can all do to mitigate our risk of exposure, the better off we all are, in my opinion. Not only does it flatten the curve and allow health care providers to maintain levels of service that aren’t immediately and catastrophically overwhelmed; it also reduces unnecessary suffering and deaths, and buys time for the scientific community to study the virus in order to come to a more full understanding of the breadth of its impacts in both the short and long term.

    I reject the notion that it’s “just a virus” and we’ll all get it eventually. What a careless, lazy, heartless stance.”
