You won’t see cell phones or personal computers much in movies or TV shows until the late 1990s because most people didn’t own them.  Of course most people didn’t need them either.  If you couldn’t afford a “home phone” – pay phones usually weren’t hard to find.  Anyone who needed to be “on call” – like doctors – wore pagers.

People who grew up without new technology know firsthand that it has made the world better in some ways.  We also know that it has made it worse in others.  People who never knew the world without new technology have been conditioned to believe that all of it is necessary as well as beneficial.  Unfortunately, that’s not the case.  5G is very dangerous (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).  Artificial Intelligence (AI) is associated with many risks as well.

There will always be people who want more technology regardless of the human and environmental consequences.  Those kinds of people are not going to like Frontline’s “In the Age of AI”.

FRONTLINE investigates the promise and perils of artificial intelligence, from fears about work and privacy to rivalry between the U.S. and China. The documentary traces a new industrial revolution that will reshape and disrupt our lives, our jobs and our world, and allow the emergence of the surveillance society.

New Website Provides Details on a Safe Alternative to Harmful 5G

The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is biologically safe and researchers have already determined that it isn’t (see 1, 2).

Doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, meteorologists, security experts, the U.S. Navy, utility companies and others have been issuing very scary warnings about the consequences of widespread 5G deployment.  Despite this AND lawsuits AND few subscribers where it’s already been installed AND growing opposition, 5G proponents continue to promote and force installation.

Opponents are now trying to raise awareness about a safer alternative: SafeG.

From their website:

SafeG means safe, fast, reliable, secure internet and telecommunications services brought into our homes and businesses by wired technology. It means technology that safeguards our health, privacy and security and that evolves over time with the goal of reducing exposure to harmful wireless radiation.

Why you should consider SafeGTM over 5G

The wireless industry has fired the starting gun for the so-called “race to 5G.” Why 5G? The simple answer is that it comes after 4G. That’s the previous generation of wireless technology, and the industry is desperately seeking a way to increase its slumping profits by selling an expensive and unnecessary “upgrade.” (Seasoned activists may wish to go directly to this special message.)

Canada Provides Safe Haven to White Helmet Terrorist Factions – Global Research

Canada Provides Safe Haven to White Helmet Terrorist Factions – Global Research

21-10-18 06:02:00,

Whereas there are untold numbers of Western-created refugees throughout the world, what author Franz Fanon appropriately named “The Wretched of the Earth”, Canada has chosen to prioritize the “White Helmets” evacuated from Syria.

As with similar colonial narratives, the lies wrapped around this operation constitute war propaganda. White Helmets are not “saviours” to be protected. In fact, they are — in some instances by their own admissions – terrorists. 

Investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley explains in “Syria: The White Helmets and Armed Group Leader in Daraa Al Balad”[1] that  

“if a White Helmet faction is led by Nusra Front (many are according to Al Mahamid), then it follows that the whole group will be Nusra Front. The White Helmets in Dara’a were originally led by a member of the FSA – Abdellah Assarhan. Following Al Mahamid’s logic then all members of the Dara’a White Helmets will be FSA and involved in furthering the sectarian aims of the FSA in Dara’a.”

When Beeley asked if a White Helmets member might be Nusra Front (al Qaeda), Al Mahamid admitted, 

“Of course!  They might be Nusra Front and run a White Helmet center so this means all his colleagues are also Nusra Front … “

Additionally, White Helmets operatives told Beeley that 50% of the evacuees were terrorist leaders and ISIS fighters.[2]

 Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, for her part, told the Global and Mail[3] that,

“…  the fact that a group of White Helmets and their families were able to escape Syria and are now finding refuge around the world is a real example of not cursing the darkness, and lighting a small candle …”  

Evidence-based reality paints a far different picture.
