"A Stitch in Time, Temporal Suture,

In a Wink They Planned The Future,

The Fourth Industrial Revolution,

Mandated Poverty to be Solution,

A Slavery, Years in the Planning,

Our Lives Owned, Report is Damning."

© Alan Watt, Oct. 11, 2020


In this talk from Oct. 11, 2020 entitled “A Stitch in Time, Temporal Suture, In a Wink They Planned The Future”, Alan Watt quotes the last line of the T.S. Eliot poem The Hollow Men, referenced as The Straw Men. One does visualize straw men or scare crows when reading this verse:

We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men

Leaning together

Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!


Now that we’ve corrected that, here’s the last line:

[Man goes out]

Not with a bang but a whimper.


This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

Not with a bang but a whimper.


Eliot’s poem makes references to hopelessness, to post-World War I Europe under the Treaty of Versailles and even Guy Falkes Night, the 5th of November where Falkes’ straw effigy is burned to remember the Gunpowder Plot against King James I. So there’s a lot going on in the poem just like there is always a lot being covered in a talk by Alan Watt.

In this talk, Alan says that we’re living through a much bigger agenda than just to do with Covid, and much, much bigger than the general term “The Great Reset.” It is the 4th Industrial Revolution, a whole new way of living and a completely different structure to the system, globally. Agenda 21, The Century of Change, Transition. This new system is The Internet of Things, 5G where all nomadic devices, e.g. cell phones, tablets, smart watches, chips in your clothing and shoes, the smart cities and smart homes are interconnected. This is what it’s all about. Totally tracked and traced throughout your entire lives.

We’ve selected talks and excerpts of talks over the last few months to illustrate the complete interconnected nature of this one agenda. We have been highlighting the use of psychology and technology and the elite families who have planned and implemented this intergenerationally. Starting with the Redux on November 14, we will be bringing back to your attention some of the current players in this world takeover.

These Redux and the selection of topical news that is included each week have been done only because one listener in Canada has remained committed to scouring the archives, making suggestions and doing some incredible work to help us keep Alan Watt’s work alive and resonating week in and week out.

Over the months since Alan passed, quite a few listeners have asked us to bring specific talks back. When we uploaded the Coast to Coast AM George Noory w/ Alan Watt as guest on the 15th Anniversary of April 10th 2006, that was listener suggested. Ditto for Alan’s Father’s Day talk from 2007 where he featured his original composition and his fine singing voice in "Father Farewell (For Laura)" by Alan Watt, aka "A Song for Dads". So we remain listener-supported in ways that go far beyond your donations and orders, which are essential to keep this going.

This is an excellent little excerpt that chastises us just a wee bit for willingly giving up freedom, for sharing our personal data without thought, for losing the knowledge that privacy has been fought for in generations past because without that there is no freedom. Could the World Economic Forum bring us into the 4th Industrial Revolution without our help? As Alan so often said, we buy our own chains.

In researching some articles that would tie in with this talk, we found a couple of pieces by Jeremy Loffredo and Max Blumenthal that cover vaccine passports, surveillance capitalism and a military-intelligence outfit behind the U.S. push for the digital vaccine passport.

A federal appeals court temporarily halted Joe Biden’s federal Covid-19 vaccine mandate for businesses on Saturday. But White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain said today that he expected the mandate would ultimately be upheld. The mandate would require businesses with at least 100 employees to require COVID-19 vaccinations or weekly testing. As Alan said, the point is not Covid, it’s the system coming in under the cover of Covid.

We’re also bringing to your attention a series of articles by Joachin Flores for Strategic Culture in which he covers the World Economic Forum, smart city imprisonment and the social credit system.

Alan concludes this talk by saying that it’s your right to have privacy and to have your own thoughts. Most folk will give up every right that they have to be the same as everyone else. If they see their peer group rushing toward a cliff because it’s a great experience, it’s in 3D, then they’ll want it as well. Imagine spending all that money on a phone that will be loaded with apps to track and trace you. “What’s wrong with you?” This technology is to standardize the population on behalf of those who rule you. “It took centuries to fight to get the rights to privacy and with a little flashing screen, the light of Lucifer as they say, eh, they just give it all away so quickly ‘cause it’s so magically enticing isn’t it? Oh, it’s hypnotic. Oh! Wow!”

The Hollow Men  by T.S. Eliot

Mistah Kurtz-he dead

A penny for the Old Guy




We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men

Leaning together

Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!

Our dried voices, when

We whisper together

Are quiet and meaningless

As wind in dry grass

Or rats' feet over broken glass

In our dry cellar


Shape without form, shade without colour,

Paralysed force, gesture without motion;


Those who have crossed

With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom

Remember us-if at all-not as lost

Violent souls, but only

As the hollow men

The stuffed men.



Eyes I dare not meet in dreams

In death's dream kingdom

These do not appear:

There, the eyes are

Sunlight on a broken column

There, is a tree swinging

And voices are

In the wind's singing

More distant and more solemn

Than a fading star.


Let me be no nearer

In death's dream kingdom

Let me also wear

Such deliberate disguises

Rat's coat, crowskin, crossed staves

In a field

Behaving as the wind behaves

No nearer-


Not that final meeting

In the twilight kingdom



This is the dead land

This is cactus land

Here the stone images

Are raised, here they receive

The supplication of a dead man's hand

Under the twinkle of a fading star.


Is it like this

In death's other kingdom

Waking alone

At the hour when we are

Trembling with tenderness

Lips that would kiss

Form prayers to broken stone.



The eyes are not here

There are no eyes here

In this valley of dying stars

In this hollow valley

This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms


In this last of meeting places

We grope together

And avoid speech

Gathered on this beach of the tumid river


Sightless, unless

The eyes reappear

As the perpetual star

Multifoliate rose

Of death's twilight kingdom

The hope only

Of empty men.



Here we go round the prickly pear

Prickly pear prickly pear

Here we go round the prickly pear

At five o'clock in the morning.


Between the idea

And the reality

Between the motion

And the act

Falls the Shadow


For Thine is the Kingdom

Between the conception

And the creation

Between the emotion

And the response

Falls the Shadow

Life is very long

Between the desire

And the spasm

Between the potency

And the existence

Between the essence

And the descent

Falls the Shadow

For Thine is the Kingdom

For Thine is

Life is

For Thine is the


This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

Not with a bang but a whimper.
