Today’s world looks quite chaotic, threatened and stressed. But could the players and motives commonly cited by investigative journalists be symptomatic first, causal second?

Issues come ‘fast and furious,’ such as ever-increasing threats to health, freedom, self-determination, and most critically to the ecosystem, thus survival.

Technological society (TS) now faces conversion from an ‘analog’ form of socioeconomic and political thralldom (sold as freedom) to a digital, microwave-mediated, robotized, total-surveillance and direct human-control system, where one’s thoughts, feelings, choices and behaviors can be (wirelessly) programmed.

The hypothesis here is that the chaos, threats and stress, regardless of commonly perceived motive/sources, are ultimately symptomatic of a form of societal mental illness. Or perhaps more accurately, a predisposing psycho-spiritual imbalance.

TS has traditionally been primed and ready to identify individual mental-emotional imbalances, recognized by the affected individual or not. For example, suicidal tendency is usually characterized as a mental illness.

But if, as suggested here, there is a specific, fundamental, conditioned or/and reinforced collective imbalance, might we have been, and be, a bit slow to acknowledge and, especially, address it? If a pathological condition and its attendant thoughts, beliefs and behavior are widespread/dominant, does the syndrome becomes ‘normal’?

It’s suggested that a normalized systemic imbalance is the paradigm, or soul, of cultures that develop and embrace ever-advancing technology:

What good man would prefer a country covered with forests and ranged by a few thousand savages to our extensive Republic, studded with cities, towns, and prosperous farms, embellished with all the improvements which art can devise or industry execute, … and filled with all the blessings of liberty, civilization, and religion? – President Andrew Jackson, “Case for the Removal [of Indians] Act” December 8, 1830

Piece of the Pie

Obviously, Andrew Jackson didn’t consider those who preferred forests to be good “men” by definition. Today, many if not most folks regard the way of life he described as positive, and want their ‘piece of the pie.’

Even though there’s ‘background’ awareness, not often by any means in daily life does the price of the pie get right in our face. That price is the ongoing liquidation of our primary asset – our source of life – willing participation in the physically devastating and toxifying process of turning it into money.

Is Technology Enabling Human CULLING? The Rise of Genetic Editing Suggests It Is

Human genetic editing has become a reality. This terrifying advance in technology comes with high risks to not only those children who are genetically modified (without their permission I might add,) but to the whole human race. The repercussions of such meddling are far-reaching and potentially devastating.

What was once science fiction has now become a confirmed scientific possibility not only within reach, but being practiced illegally in China.

Scientists have discovered how to genetically edit embryos.

Frontiers in Genetics reports in the Journal article Parental Selective Reproduction: Genome-Editing and Maternal Behavior as a Potential Concern by Andrea Lavazza that a Chinese geneticist implanted two modified embryos into two women. Two women were impregnated with genetically modified children.

At the end of November 2018, Chinese geneticist He Jiankui declared he implanted embryos, that had been genetically modified with the CRISPR-Cas9 technique (Ran et al., 2013; Doudna and Charpentier, 2014), into two women…In January 2019, He was suspended from his university—Southern University of Science and Technology of China, in Shenzhen—and placed under house arrest by the Chinese authorities. (source)

The Chinese geneticist He Jiankui implanted the genetically modified embryos into two women after modifying the embryos in an attempt to make them more resistant to HIV. However, most research says that his experiment is unlikely to be successful. He is unlikely to have prevented HIV in the children and there are a whole host of side effects that come with his meddling, including the weakening of the immune system and risk to vital organs.

Lavazza continues:

The procedure [CRISPR-Cas9 technique] has been the object of much criticism from the strictly medical-scientific point of view: among other things, it has been defined as “misguided, premature, unnecessary and largely useless” (Cyranoski, 2018). On the one hand, guaranteeing only partial genetic protection against HIV, which could also be obtained with other medical methods, the procedure, which has not yet been sufficiently tested, does not seem to compensate for the high risks it entails. (source)

The proponents of human genetic editing cite the possibilities of curing or preventing diseases as reasons to start (or in some cases continue) using the technique.

5G Cell Phone Technology Contravenes Human and Environmental Laws – Global Research

5g-cell-phone-technology-contravenes-human-and-environmental-laws-–-global-research

05-11-19 04:07:00,

Attorney-at-law Christian Jensen, of Bonnor Lawyers in Denmark, examined potential health damages and risks of 5G in relation to human rights and environmental conventions.

The legal opinion is centred around results that have positively documented actual damages or risks to humans, animals and plants.  Jensen points out that this research is “inherently of much greater significance than examinations which have been incapable of identifying a damage or risk thereof, since the latter group does not in itself exclude the possibility that there exist real damage or risks”.

He explains that

“If it has on one occasion defensibly been scientifically proven that there is a damaging effect or risk of damage, then the fact that ten other defensible trials did not show such an effect or risk is irrelevant.  It is then merely up to the scientific community to clarify why the ten defensible trials did not show what is scientifically proven, in order to better understand why and how the damages occur or could occur”.

In his final remarks, on page 64 of the 75-page document, Jensen states that:

“It is the conclusion of this legal opinion that establishing and activating a 5G-network, as it is currently described,  would  be  in  contravention  of  current  human  and  environmental  laws enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, EU regulations, and the Bern- and Bonn-conventions.

The reason is the very significant body of scientific documentation available, showing that radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation is harmful and dangerous to the health of humans (particularly children), animals and plants.

This also applies when the radiation remains within the limits recommended by ICNIRP and currently used in Denmark as well as broadly within the EU.”

The legal opinion was provided at the request of the Danish Institute for Public Health, the Council for Health-Safe Telecommunications, the EHS-association and the Danish Health Association May Day.

This opinion is also relevant to Australia.  Australia is a signatory to both the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Bonn convention (also known as the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals).

5G Is Millimeter Wave Technology. How The ACLU Weighs In On “Directed Energy Devices.”

5g-is-millimeter-wave-technology-how-the-aclu-weighs-in-on-“directed-energy-devices.”

By B.N. Frank

5G is millimeter wave technology.  Despite growing widespread opposition, it continues to be promoted and installed even though

  1. The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that it’s safe
  2. Research has already proven 5G is harmful (see 1, 2)
  3. Credible individuals and organizations (including the U.S. Navy) have issued warnings about 5G for reasons other than biological and environmental harm

Millimeter wave technology can be weaponized as used as “directed energy devices.”  The ACLU doesn’t seem to look upon this favorably.  They aren’t alone.

Wireless Technology: The Plain Physics & Biophysics | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

wireless-technology:-the-plain-physics-&-biophysics-|-light-on-conspiracies-–-revealing-the-agenda

21-06-19 10:01:00,

By Peter Tocci

Many organizations/sites sharing warnings about the wireless health threat have names like ‘such-and-such for responsible technology.’ Or ‘safe technology.’ Or ‘safer.’ This article endeavors to show that the physics and biophysics of it indicate that all such and similar names are deceptive.

Clearly problematic also is disproportionate focus on human concerns. The worst threat by far is to the ecosystem, which 4G wireless is now collapsing. Even though environment is acknowledged in warnings, emphasis remains on humans. This backwards priority suggests a dangerous disregard for, or lack of, complete understanding.

I won’t say the misguided cautionary campaign, including the opposition to 5G per se, is ALL deliberate controlled opposition, but wittingly or not, these entities flirt with terminal disaster by perpetuating the threat. They suggest we can dance with the devil (a reined-in 4G), but ‘OMG,’ 5G must go! Well, the principles of physics are not forgiving. 2G-4G is a quite sufficiently terminal nightmare.

Wireless technology obviously exists within the context of technology per se. One thing is certain about most of that, regardless of benefit: It’s toxic. Somewhere along the line from the mining of hard resources (extractivism), to manufacture, use, and disposal, it’s chemically/energetically toxic to planet/biosphere. Wireless encompasses that entire line. Of ecosystem, smaller species, such as insects, already massively declining, are most susceptible to the radiation. Of humans, fetuses and kids. Tacit: we agree to poison the kids for money, convenience and comfort.

No exposed living thing is exempt. Bee, bird, tree, pet. (see also)

It’s not difficult to make the case that there’s no such thing as responsible (advanced and high) technology of any kind, never mind wireless (more below). All ‘unnatural’ environmental disaster and damage is tech-sourced. Natural disasters are often worsened. The mantra is: “Technology is the sanctified pride of Western ‘Civilization,’ bringing profit, convenience, a high standard of living; and meeting human needs.” Or is that selfish wants, common sense and Wisdom be damned.

It’s also not difficult to make the case that what’s been done to the planet to bring Western ‘Civilization’ to where it is now is solid proof that where we are is not a good place to be.
