In my lifetime, there was another deadly flu epidemic in the United States. The flu spread from Hong Kong to the United States, arriving December 1968 and peaking a year later. It ultimately killed 100,000 people in the U.S., mostly over the age of 65, and one million worldwide.
Lifespan in the US in those days was 70 whereas it is 78 today. Population was 200 million as compared with 328 million today. It was also a healthier population with low obesity. If it would be possible to extrapolate the death data based on population and demographics, we might be looking at a quarter million deaths today from this virus. So in terms of lethality, it was as deadly and scary as COVID-19 if not more so, though we shall have to wait to see.
“In 1968,” says Nathaniel L. Moir in National Interest, “the H3N2 pandemic killed more individuals in the U.S. than the combined total number of American fatalities during both the Vietnam and Korean Wars.”
And this happened in the lifetimes of every American over 52 years of age.
I was 5 years old and have no memory of this at all. My mother vaguely remembers being careful and washing surfaces, and encouraging her mom and dad to be careful. Otherwise, it’s mostly forgotten today. Why is that?
Nothing closed. Schools stayed open. All businesses did too. You could go to the movies. You could go to bars and restaurants. John Fund has a friend who reports having attended a Grateful Dead concert. In fact, people have no memory or awareness that the famous Woodstock concert of August 1969 – planned in January during the worse period of death – actually occurred during a deadly American flu pandemic that only peaked globally six months later. There was no thought given to the virus which, like ours today, was dangerous mainly for a non-concert-going demographic.
Stock markets didn’t crash. Congress passed no legislation. The Federal Reserve did nothing. Not a single governor acted to enforce social distancing, curve flattening (even though hundreds of thousands of people were hospitalized), or banning of crowds. No mothers were arrested for taking their kids to other homes. No surfers were arrested. No daycares were shut even though there were more infant deaths with this virus than the one we are experiencing now. There were no suicides, no unemployment, no drug overdoses.
Media covered the pandemic but it never became a big issue.

By now, having going through the contrived lockdown, people should have become more aware and be more wary of tyrants with their high ambitions to control the world. To control YOU.
I’ve done my homework long enough to discern what is and what is not being presented to the world, especially to me.
The lockdown due to Covid19 is ongoing and god knows for how long.
There are mountains of reports and articles about the virus from both side of the divide to satisfy both parties. I for one is on the side that questions everything. Personally I am clear about what’s going on in this world and it’s not pretty I tell you. In fact, I am in dangerous times and my liberty is at stake.
The lockdown is and of itself a serious breach of my fundamental rights, regardless of the exigency it was imposed upon.
Obviously, WHO (is behind the lockdown) an agency of the United Nations is inept of its own Universal Declaration of Human Rights
The employment of government power to assault personal liberty and cut constitutional corners is never justified in a free society, no matter the exigency. The Constitution protects our rights in good times and in bad. Those in power who steal freedom are unworthy of office. But don’t expect them to give us our freedoms back. We will need to pry it away from their cold and covetous hands. – Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
Consequently, saving additional COVID victims today with a particular policy may result in even more avoidable deaths in the future. If that is the case, such a policy will result in more people dying, and “we’re not going to put a dollar figure on human life” has nothing to do with it. – Misses Institute
Okay, let’s dump all the rules aside. Let’s see wtf this covid lockdown is all about.
This video was sent to me by Dr Stuart Bramhall and it is (to me) the answer to my question.
As you can see they, WHO, YouTube and gang pulled it dowN!!
I was fortunate to view and listen to the video and made notes before they tore it down.
This link is still on at the time of writing. Watch it now before they block it (again)
The most profound message from Drs. Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, co-owners of a chain of Accelerated Urgent Care facilities, is the Secondary Impacts of the lockdown, which is more devastating than Covid19 itself.
Do I need to paint the grisly picture?
If you can’t visualize it, I recommend you watch any movie on the aftermath of a nuclear bomb attack. Or watch these photos at BuzzFeed
They are murdering you while you’re comfortably in your homes shoving pop corns down your throats watching NETFLIX!
PEOPLE MUST RISE NOW AND STOP THIS GENOCIDE!
“Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain.”
~ George Orwell (1961). “1984”
I just read a rather intimidating article Do you speak corona? A guide to covid-19 slang by the illustrious Economist about new slang that emerged in this coronavirus (r)age. It will definitely amuse the Coronajustice Warriors, who are their main audience. They are prepping up their warriors for a battle against those who don’t buy the Plandemic hoax, whom they’ve labeled as Covidiots.
Around the world, coronavirus is changing how we speak. Don’t be a “covidiot” – make sure your pandemic parlance is up to scratch.
Here’s what I say to that.
There’s a new religion brewing as we speak and I called it COVIDISM. The devotees are the coronajustice warriors and they are called COVIDISTS.
I’m not into religion and I have nothing against people who are religious. People are free and have the right to their choice of beliefs as entrenched in the Constitutions of most countries. What I’m against is the imposition of beliefs on others. That’s not only unconstitutional but abominable.
The Covid19 event is about herding the people into forced Covidism. The current lockdown is the indoctrination and familiarization period to practice the prescribed rituals. It will be extended accordingly until they’re satisfied with your performance, and oh, until your original faith is ‘softly’ eroded. When was the last time you went to church, or mosque or temple?
That list is just the beginning, the main precepts if you like. There’s more to come of course. They will make it up as they go along. This religion is to dehumanize and self-centering the people. Its oxymoronic. Stay away from others because you care about them getting infected by you. The “virus” will be around for a long time to come. The High Priests will dictate your daily life routine, even on what to eat and drink. All organic foods including meat and your old favorite junk foods (of course), shall be removed from the face of the Earth to be replaced with synthetics manufactured in their factories.
Death is inevitable, so never hide from life, and never allow a moment of life to be taken from you by tyrants. All government is tyrannical, and all government seeks power and control, and today it is using a purposely-created crisis in order to gain that control. We are being told by false rulers to abandon our lives, and hide away from those we care about in order to stop a virus. This is the highest form of deception, and is only meant to divide us so sinister agendas can be accomplished in the shadows.
While you still have your freewill and freedom of choice (whatever is left), know that it doesn’t include the hurting of others. Be stupid and hurt yourself if that’s your choice. Nobody should stop you. Don’t hurt others. Don’t hurt me.
Believe anything you want, believe that you’ll be infected by a ‘virus’ and that you’ll die from it if it doesn’t pain your loved ones and the people around you.
Embrace Covidism if you choose to, but keep it to yourself and stay away far far from me.
…and don’t tread on me.

Humans are social beings and that is the way of Creation to place us on Earth touching and mingling with each other in this life. Take that social element away from the equation and life is hell.
People shall overcome the evil schemes of the psychotic Slave Lords. By God, we will.
Meantime in the lockdown the apparent (unseen) danger is the “getting-used-to-it” as it is being extended gradually by design. Alongside the FEAR porn of the fake virus, comes the indoctrination in the guise of motivation and Dutch comforts.
“We’re all in this together”?
NO, Were not all in this together!
The notion that “we are going to get through this together” seems to be based in the assumption that the crisis is going to move quickly, and if we hold tight, our sacrifice will be minimal and all will go back to the way things were before. This is simply not so.
There is a gush of articles online, while some are well-meaning, most are psycho-designed to calm and tame tensed-up and distressed people who are going bonkers trapped indoors in their homes for the first time in their lives.
Amongst the literature disseminated on the Internet are writings to help people cope with the House Arrest. Some are good, especially educational stuff covering various interesting subjects of (new) learning to many. Most are craps especially ones on the faux positive thinking motivational stuff.
Learn by all means and take this opportunity to do so, instead of just binging on food, drinking, and smoking expanding your bodies sideways.
Learn from this moment on that you shall not stop learning in freedom.
It will be to your own detriment when you’re finally released from the House Arrest as a phobic, trained anti-social being, and worst (if not) a miserable misanthrope.
Remind yourSelf that you are under HOUSE ARREST.

How could it be possible or imaginable that 7 billion people could be controlled by a few (a thousand at most) psychopathic ⁉️
For how long will the virus hoax and/or their techy mind-control tools/devices last before the people get wiser, wake up and rise?
Its a very ambitious scheme, but a daunting task nevertheless to hold that many people in subjugation for long.
Their evil plan is not without resistance from the people, definitely not I assure you, and that itself presents a insurmountable problem for any would be slave lords.
Never underestimate the power of We The People

In Malaysia we’re now in the 34th Day of The Plandemic Lockdown
People are now like the Frog In The Boiling Water
Most seem to be getting used to the “extended vacation” if not enjoying it specially those with paychecks still being remitted into their bank accounts.
While “indoor” they’re completely oblivious to what’s happening outside their boiling pot.
The lockdown will run until the total collapse of the people’s wealth. The architects of the Plandemic have plans of course, for them. We’ll leave that subject for a later time.
Back to the frog (people) in the boiling pot, they’re being kept preoccupied with THE VIRUS. They’re being bombarded with tons of horrid STORIES and statistics of the virus, and grandmother’s health care articles and news.
Many care-a-less of the economic demolition going on since the lockdown and the impending impacts on them.
What’s frightening is that they aren’t frightened about the financial and economic collapse because that’s not a possibility at all to them as the water in the pot warms up and they’re getting to get used to each increase of degree of the heat and everything is reasonably fine at “home”. Food is on the table at every eating time for the past month or so.
The devils are dishing out Dutch comfort phrases like “Don’t worry. Be calm. We’re in this together. It will be over soon!”
Right, it will be over and there’s no doubt about that. What’s missing in that is the real BIG picture of the Plandemic aftermath.
Here are the harsh hard facts for you to picture it yourself.
Shutting down the economy is unleashing a Great Depression far WORSE than that of the 1930s. Our political leaders are absolute morons. This has demonstrated that they have no common sense and the abuse they have inflicted upon society for the political benefits is just mindboggling. There is NO HOPE IN HELL that the economy will recover. We are looking at a crash and burn into 2022. All the headstrong people talking about hyperinflation and the dollar will crash who lost a fortune on the way down since January, are going to lose everything between now and 2022. They remain absolutely clueless as to even what capital formation is all about. – Armstrong Economics
I stand corrected and I’d be very happy to be wrong.
Mental preparedness is your best bet to survive in that gloomy scenario.
YES. Do remain calm, but prepare for the worst is yet to come.

Every one has the freewill to decide to do what is right for one-self without doing any harm to another.
It is the right of each to be as he/she wishes including to be filthy, un-hygienic, stupid and/or fearful.
Be responsible. Not many comprehend this word, and that is not doing them or others any good.
It’s not my duty to teach any one and it surely isn’t my problem.
I am experiencing virus fatigue by the ongoing nonsense and surrounded by those who jump onto the FEAR wagon and ended becoming frightened of their own shadows. I offer no sympathy nor any advice for them.
But I state here for mySelf:
I AM a social being and I AM free to socialize with those who chose to do so with me and I SHALL NOT distance mySelf from any of them, even if they are not in their best of health.
I AM hygienic and shall maintain as such for no other reason than to be clean and healthy.

Enough is enough.
The employment of government power to assault personal liberty and cut constitutional corners is never justified in a free society, no matter the exigency. The Constitution protects our rights in good times and in bad. Those in power who steal freedom are unworthy of office. But don’t expect them to give us our freedoms back. We will need to pry it away from their cold and covetous hands.
During the past month, as Americans have been terrified of the coronavirus, another demon has been lurking ready to pounce. It is a demon of our own creation. It is the now amply manifested inability of elected officials to resist the temptation of totalitarianism. And it is slowly bringing about the death of personal liberty in our once free society.
It is one thing for public officials to use a bully pulpit to educate and even intimidate the populace into a prudent awareness of basic sanitary behaviors — even those which go against our nature — to impede the spread of the virus. It is quite another to contend that their suggestions and intimidations and guidelines somehow have the force of the law behind them.
The government in America — at both the federal and state levels — is divided into three branches: legislative, executive and judicial. This separation of powers was crafted at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 after heated debate. The essence of the debate was this: how to establish a government strong enough to protect individual liberty but not so strong as to enable the government to destroy it. James Madison and his colleagues devised the separation of powers to keep power from accumulating in one branch.
The legislative branch writes the laws, and the executive enforces them, and the judiciary interprets them and articulates what they mean. The president cannot write laws. The courts cannot enforce them. And Congress cannot interpret them. When Congress has gotten lazy or presidents have gotten ambitious and we’ve seen presidential lawmaking, the courts have struck it down. Stated differently, the separation of powers is core to our freedoms and the courts have consistently ruled that core functions assigned by the Constitution to each branch cannot be ceded away to another branch.
The same is the case for the states, as each state’s constitution mimics the U.S. Constitution and mandates separation. The separation is not mandated to protect the prerogatives of each branch. It is mandated to protect individual liberty by preventing any branch from accumulating power assigned to the others.
This has been Madison’s genius. It has become Madison’s sorrow.
These “orders” — stay at home, close your business, don’t run in the park, don’t go to Mass, practice social distancing — are not laws that can carry a criminal penalty for violation. They are guidelines, without the force of law. A governor or mayor can no more craft a law and assign a punishment for its noncompliance than the courts could command the military or police.
Even if legislative bodies did order churches and businesses closed, and governors and mayors were just enforcing those laws, the laws would be profoundly unconstitutional. The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment firmly establishes freedom of religion as a fundamental liberty and the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment firmly establishes your right to purchase a lawful product in interstate commerce from a willing seller as fundamental.
Fundamental liberties are in the highest category of liberty, akin to freedom of conscience and speech and press and privacy and travel.
Let’s say you are at a big-box store looking for groceries and other items. The government cannot constitutionally limit your choices to food and paper towels if you prefer to buy grass seed and a garden hose. These are intimate personal decisions. You need not explain or justify them to the government and you don’t need a government permission slip to exercise your free will and make those choices.
Now, we have become a nation of sheep. We have elected officials with constitutionally assigned duties — and constitutionally imposed limitations — who have assumed to themselves dictatorial powers and have falsely claimed that they can interfere with our personal choices. Who are the governors to decide which human activities are essential? Abortion is essential but Mass is not? No constitution gave them that power.
There are two schools of thought on the impairment of fundamental liberties. One requires strict scrutiny and the other requires due process. The strict scrutiny standard mandates the existence of a compelling state interest addressed by the least restrictive means. The procedural due process standard mandates a trial at which the state must prove fault or guilt. The substantive due process standard puts certain personal decisions beyond governmental reach.
Closing churches meets no constitutional standard. There is no question that fighting a pandemic is a compelling state interest, yet there are far less restrictive ways to address it than preventing worship. Wearing masks and gloves, staying 10 feet apart, holding Mass outdoors, even taking a personal risk and then self-quarantining are far less restrictive and constitutionally offensive than closing churches.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio violated his oath to uphold the Constitution when he threatened to use force to close permanently all houses of worship that defied his guidelines. And a small-town police department in northern New Jersey exquisitely violated the constitutional rights of Catholics — while enforcing the ever-changing whims of Gov. Phil Murphy. The police claimed they were following the governor’s orders when they barred a priest on Palm Sunday from distributing palms in sealed plastic bags while he and each parishioner wore masks and gloves and were six feet apart in the fresh outdoors.
Enough is enough.
The employment of government power to assault personal liberty and cut constitutional corners is never justified in a free society, no matter the exigency. The Constitution protects our rights in good times and in bad. Those in power who steal freedom are unworthy of office. But don’t expect them to give us our freedoms back. We will need to pry it away from their cold and covetous hands.

We finally did it…give yourself a pat on the the back!
We could not have done it without your cooperation and assistance.
On March 24 Bill Gates gave a highly revelatory 50-minute interview (above) to Chris Anderson. Anderson is the Curator of TED, the non-profit that runs the TED Talks.
The Gates interview is the second in a new series of daily ‘Ted Connects’ interviews focused on COVID-19. The series’s website says that:
TED Connects: Community and Hope is a free, live, daily conversation series featuring experts whose ideas can help us reflect and work through this uncertain time with a sense of responsibility, compassion and wisdom.”
Anderson asked Gates at 3:49 in the video of the interview – which is quickly climbing to three million views – about a ‘Perspective’ article by Gates that was published February 28 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
“You wrote that this could be the once-in-a-century pandemic that people have been fearing. Is that how you think of it, still?” queried Anderson.
“Well, it’s awful to say this but, we could have a respiratory virus whose case fatality rate was even higher. If this was something like smallpox, that kills 30 percent of people. So this is horrific,” responded Gates.
“But, in fact, most people even who get the COVID disease are able to survive. So in that, it’s quite infectious – way more infectious than MERS [Middle East Respiratory Syndrome] or SARS [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] were. [But] it’s not as fatal as they were. And yet the disruption we’re seeing in order to knock it down is really completely unprecedented.”
Gates reiterates the dire consequences for the global economy later in the interview.
“We need a clear message about that,” Gates said starting at 26:52.
“It is really tragic that the economic effects of this are very dramatic. I mean, nothing like this has ever happened to the economy in our lifetimes. But … bringing the economy back and doing [sic] money, that’s more of a reversible thing than bringing people back to life. So we’re going to take the pain in the economic dimension, huge pain, in order to minimize the pain in disease and death dimension.”
However, this goes directly against the imperative to balance the benefits and costs of the screening, testing and treatment measures for each ailment – as successfully promulgated for years by, for example, the Choosing Wisely campaign – to provide the maximum benefit to individual patients and society as a whole.
Even more importantly, as noted in an April 1 article in OffGuardian, there may be dramatically more deaths from the economic breakdown than from COVID-19 itself.

In the beginnings of the structure of society they were subjected to brutal and blind force; afterwards-to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of nature right lies in force. – Protocol No.1 The Protocols of The Meetings of The Learned Elders of Zion
The whole world is coerced into a lockdown by governments because of a plandemic (No its not a wrong spelling ). Its the (new) word for a pandemic which was planned.
I’m not going to argue about the authenticity of the coronavirus. There are enough reports and articles out there for one to decide which are fakes or facts.
For a fact, I’m writing withing the four walls of my home. I am placed under a Restriction Movement Order (RMO), whatever that means, but my freedom of movement on the land as guaranteed under The Federal Constitution has been violated.
I get daily SMS reminders from the government about the RMO and to wash my hands.
It is now a crime for me to:
> Walk in the streets
> Jogging in parks
> Travel inter-state
> Stand less than 6 ft from another human being
Of course all these orders are for my own safety and good to protect me from the dangers of being infected by a invisible microbe which are here there and everywhere. Really?
Let’s not argue about that constitutionally either, as I am not a lawyer.
In the beginnings they applied brute force, then they create Laws which have the same force, but more subtly, and now they have Orders, which is a bigger force and very brutal.
I love philosophy (and The Beatles too), but will not get philosophical about the current madness.
I’ll just end with the wise words of Rumi:
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field.I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.”..
LATEST UPDATE – April 04, 2020
…a video done by a former higher-up at Vodafone turned whistleblower who exposed plans the elites had years ago to roll out 5G across the world. In it, he mentions how detrimental the high-frequency radio waves emitted from 5G towers are and the damage they cause to biological organisms.
But also, those who support the technology’s implementation knew how dangerous it was to human health.
Initially, there is no noticeable effect, but after about 6 months of constant exposure like the guinea pig subjects in Wuhan experienced, the body begins to break down and react adversely to the radiation poisoning.
As you may have heard by now, Wuhan was the first major city where 5G technology and towers were rolled out, sadly making it a testing ground for the technology.
As it turns out, very common side effects of radiation poisoning are “flu-like” symptoms.
Part of the body’s natural immune response to such poisoning is to expel virulent fluid and debris out of the body’s orifices. – TDV

Now, I have ten minutes I wasn’t sure I was going to get to this stage. But, I can’t help but say something about this whole coronavirus thing…if you want me to?
So, again when you know Steiner, you have the answers to the tasks, but you have to then figure out the details.
In 1918, after the huge, biggest pandemic the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, Steiner was asked, “What was this all about?” and he said, “Well, viruses are simply, are excretions of a toxic cell. Virus is are pieces of DNA or RNA with a few other proteins they butt out from the cell. They happened when the cell is poisoned. They are not the cause of anything”
And the first way I would encourage you to think about this is, if you are a famous dolphin doctor and you have been studying dolphins in the Arctic circle for hundreds of years, or at least a long time and the dolphins were fine and then they call you up, “Fred, all the dolphins or a lot of the dolphins are dying in the Arctic Circle can you come and investigate”
Right, and you have one question to ask. So show of hands.
How many of you would say, “I want to investigate a dolphin to see the genetic makeup of that dolphin”
Nobody! Cause that’s stupid!
How many of you would say, “I want to see this dolphin and that dolphin has a virus because it might be contagious and that’s why these dolphins are getting sick” That’s all…
How many of you would say, “Excuse my French here, somebody put some shit in the water here. Like Exxon Valdez“
Cause that’s what happened. And the cells get poisoned they try to purify themselves by excreting debris which we called viruses. If you go to the current theory of viruses called extosome as in the latest of hat of the NIH giving the talk on the complexity of viruses you will see, this is perfectly in line with the current thinking on what a virus really is.
I had a dramatic example of this when I was growing up out where outside our house there was a wetlands and they were full of frogs and the frogs kept me up at night so I taped the windows. In Spring in it they would make a big racket. And over time the frogs were all gone.
How many thinks that the frogs had a genetic disease?
How many thinks that the frogs had a virus?
How many thinks that somebody put DDT into the water?
That’s what happened!
Diseases are poisoning. That’s one of the reasons why vaccines…so… I want to skip that for a minute.
So what happened in 1918?
There was a huge…in every pandemic in the last 150 years there was a quantum leap in the electrification of the Earth.
In 1918, late fall 1917 there was this introduction of Radio Waves around the world. Whenever you expose any biological system to a new electromagnetic field you poison it. You kill some and the rest go into a suspended animation so that interestingly they live a little bit longer and sicker.
And then starts in WWII the next pandemic with the introduction of Radar equipment all over the Earth. Likening the entire Earth in Radar field. First time humans are ever exposed to that.
In 1968 there was the HongKong Flu and it was the first time the Earth has a protective layer in the Van Allen Belt, which essentially integrates the cosmic fields from the Sun and the Earth and the Moon and Jupiter etc., Integrates that and essentially distributes that to the living beings of the Earth and we put satellites around the radio active frequencies in the Van Allen Belt. Within six months we had a new viral pandemic. Why viral because the people are poisoned, they excrete toxins – they look like viruses people think its a flu epidemic
In the 1918 the Boston Health Department decided to investigate the contagiousness of this. So believe it or not, they took hundreds of people with the flu and they suck the snuff out of their nose and injected it into the healthy people who didn’t have the flu. And not one time could they make the next person sick. They did this over and over again and they were not able to demonstrate contagion. They even did it with horses who apparently got the Spanish Flu. They put bags over their heads and the horses sneezed in the bags and they put the bag over the next horse and not one horse got sick.
You can read about this in a book called The invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenburg who chronicles all the steps in the electrification of the Earth and how within six months there was a new flu pandemic all over the world.
And when you hear the normal explanations how did it go from Kansas to South Africa in two weeks so the entire world got the symptoms at the same time in spite of the fact that the mode of transportation was horse-back and boats and there was no explanations for it. They just say, “We don’t know how that happened”
But when you think about it, with these radio waves and other frequencies that some of you have in your pockets and on your wrists. You can send the signal to Japan and they arrive instantaneously. So if you don’t believe that there is an electromagnetic field that communicates globally within seconds… you’re just not paying attention to this.
And I will only finish by pointing out that there has been a dramatic and quantum leap in the last six months with the electrification of the Earth, and sure a lot of you know what that is. It’s called 5G where they now have 20,000 radiation emitting satellites just like the radiation emitting things in your pockets and on your wrists and then you use all the time. That is not compatible with health. I’m sorry to say it. It’s not compatible with health. That is a water de-structuring device.
And for any of you who say, “Yeah, we’re not electrical beings. We’re just physical matter”. Then don’t bother doing an EKG, EEG, or a nerve conduction test. Because we are electrical beings and the chemicals are just the bi-products of those electrical impulses.
And I finish with anybody who’d want to make one guess as to where the first completely blanketed 5G city in the world was?
(answers from the class) W U H A N !!
So when you start thinking about this. We are in a existential crisis here folks!
The likes of which humankind has never seen and I don’t want to go all Old Testament prophet on you,
…this is something unprecedented
The putting of a hundred thousand satellites in the very…blanket of the Earth, and by the way, as I was going to say earlier, this actually has something to do with the vaccine question and this got brought home to me because about a year or so I had a patient who came in who was totally fine and a surfer and all and he broke…he worked as an electrician putting in WI-fi systems for very wealthy people. Electricians have a very high mortality rate and he was fine and then he breaks his arm and then he gets some metal plate put in his arm. Three months later he couldn’t get out of bed and is total…you know highly irregularities…just total collapse.
The susceptibility has to do with how much metal you have in your body as well as the quality of the water in your cells. So if you start injecting aluminum in people they become receptors for absorbing increased electromagnetic fields and that is the perfect storm for the kind of deterioration of the species which is what we’re now experiencing.
I’m just gonna finish with one more thing which I write to a quote from Rudolf Steiner. By the way this was around 1917 so it was a different time
“In times when there were no electrical currents when the air was not swarming with electrical influences it was easier to be human. For this reason in order to be human at all today, it is necessary to expand much stronger spiritual capacities then was necessary a century ago”
So I just leave you with whatever you can do to increase your spiritual capacities because it’s really damned hard to be human beings these days.
Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly. – U.N.
Whether one believe in narratives or not, the noise on climate change/global warming/rising sea-levels are literally in the air. One’s auditory canal must be blocked with concrete not to feel the thick waves gushing through it to reach the cochlea.
True or not, in Malaysia a climate change of sorts is going on as we speak. This, I assure you is not mere narrative, but as real as you are alive reading this. Even the Malaysian top cop affirms it.
The climate change transpiring is not about global warming thingy, but a political climate which is stirred by yours truly politicians. No, they did not make any admittance of it. Just as one must be deaf not to hear about the other climate change hullabaloo, I’m entitled to say, one’s head must be empty between them blocked hearing devices not to know this.
Anyways, the situation presents a real and present danger, when the Malaysian Police (PDRM) lamented about being burdened by racial and religious issues, which must also be read that they now have less capacity to deal with real dangerous crimes, which is what they were meant for, instead of becoming the weather man.
The people must brace themselves to survive this typhoonic onslaught before they get destroyed by a man-created (yes in this case) climate change, which is giving way for more serious and dangerous crimes to thrive.
KUALA LUMPUR: The Pakatan Harapan (PH) government continues to draw flak from Muslim experts abroad over its recent refusal to do away with restrictions on foreign speakers on Islamic topics.
Mustafa Akyol, a prominent US-based Turkish academic whose lecture in 2017 was forced to be cancelled by Islamic authorities in Kuala Lumpur before he was detained for speaking without “religious credentials”, said the excuse by the government that it wants to contain “deviant” teachings showed that not much had changed under the new Malaysian leadership.
“The Malaysian authorities still assume that they have a right to define ‘right Islam’ versus ‘deviant Islam’.
“But then we must ask, who gave the Malaysian government, or any government, the authority to define Islam?” Akyol, a strong advocate of free speech in Muslim countries who has frequently criticised both the Islamists and secularists in his home country, told FMT.
On Wednesday, minister in charge of Islamic affairs Mujahid Yusof Rawa defended the home ministry’s move to vet all foreign missionaries including Muslim speakers, saying the authorities wanted to make sure their belief systems were “in line with the Malaysian context”.
Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin earlier said that foreign Muslim and non-Muslim speakers would be monitored to ensure they were “free from deviant teachings”.
“Whoever comes here, regardless of the form of talks, will be monitored,” Muhyiddin had said.
The statement drew strong response from US-based Muslim academic, Nader Hashemi, who has frequently addressed Malaysian audiences on Islamic topics.
“The vetting of speakers who come to Malaysia to discuss issues of religion suggests that authoritarianism is alive and well in Malaysia and that freedom and full democracy remain an ongoing struggle and aspiration,” Hashemi, who heads the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Denver, told FMT.
Akyol, whose book “Islam Without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty” is banned in Malaysia, said no government had the right to define what is “true Islam” as this would mean reducing religion to the “interests and whims of political powers”.
“With that logic, Iran can ban Sunni Islam as ‘deviant’, as Saudis can similarly ban Shia Islam and even non-Wahhabi Sunnism. Or India can ban all Islam saying that, according to its Hindu beliefs, all Islam is ‘deviant’,” Akyol said.
He said even at the height of the Muslim empire, political leaders had no authority over religion.
“Even caliphs did not have that authority. Islam, rather, was defined by diverse communities of scholars, believers, and evolving traditions,” he said.
“The truth that we must accept is that Islam is not owned by any government because it comes from an authority that is higher than all governments.
“The rightful duty of these governments is to know their limits, protect the rights and freedoms of their citizens, and allow their societies to freely practise their religious persuasions and have intellectual discussions about them,” Akyol said.
In 2017, Akyol’s Malaysian lecture tour organised by the Islamic Renaissance Front drew protests from conservative Muslim groups and Islamic authorities.
He was arrested at KLIA as he was preparing to board a flight to Rome, hours after the Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department forced his lecture on the topic of apostasy to be called off.
“Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.” – Thomas Jefferson
The arrogance of this beast called government, the small band of thugs (a.k.a. known as politicians) who band together to rule over millions of people is that they thought they could do it infinitely. This is reflected in their ‘policy’ making and the way they (mis) treat the very people they’re supposed to care for.
The “re-development” of Kg Bharu is revived by Premier Mahathir for the second time after he failed to grab the goldmine two decades ago.
The difference between robbers and politicians is that politicians do it with colorful pamphlets rather than guns.

A hypothetical question:
How confident are you that you & #Pakatan will win #GE15?
Remember #BN #UMNO fell. A few thousand years ago the people of Rome didn’t believe the Roman empire would fall.
What would happen to the Kg Bharu you purchased?
Let’s imagine the next government is lead by non-Malays (not that I mind). You’d have been responsible for the lost of Malay land, and what would you think the Malays would do to you? Stop being arrogant. THINK ABOUT IT!— 🇷🇪🇩🇿🇦 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙝𝙬𝙞𝙨 (@merahza) October 27, 2019
In the grand scheme of things, this monumental yet ambitious “project” isn’t about helping the kampung people like me, far from it. Its all about feeding the insatiable appetite of the greedy elite Malays who care a damn about anything else but themselves.
The hypocrite Malay elites on one hand got together and “discussed” about their ‘problems’ and lost dignity and on the other hand trample on the village folks of Kg Bharu.
And [recall] when We took your covenant, [saying], “Do not shed each other’s blood or evict one another from your homes.” Then you acknowledged [this] while you were witnessing.
Then, you are those [same ones who are] killing one another and evicting a party of your people from their homes, cooperating against them in sin and aggression. And if they come to you as captives, you ransom them, although their eviction was forbidden to you. So do you believe in part of the Scripture and disbelieve in part? Then what is the recompense for those who do that among you except disgrace in worldly life; and on the Day of Resurrection they will be sent back to the severest of punishment. And Allah is not unaware of what you do. [Q 2:84/5]
If your religion has no apparent effect on your behavior, I’m entitled to assume that your degree of belief is small, no matter how much you protest.
Mahathir in his first attempt to siege Kg Bharu compared it to the American Indian reservation and tried to emulate what the white colonists did to the natives

Borneo Death Blow
Directed by Erik Pauser and Dylan Williams (2017)
This is a fascinating documentary about an activist group that campaigned hard to bring two major Malaysian corruption scandals to international attention – including one involving former Prime Minister Najib Razak and 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
The story starts in the early nineties when Bruno Manser, a Swiss environmentalist, and Mutanga, a Penan tribesman in Sarawak, paired up to protest wholesale rainforest logging on the island of Borneo (Malaysia). After successfully blockading the logging trucks for more than nine months, the activists and their supporters were imprisoned and torture.
In 1992, they undertook a world tour to bring the plight of Borneo rainforests and the Penan. They visited 24 cities in 13 countries, including the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the UN. The response they received was underwhelming.
In 2000, Manser returned to Sarawak and…

Kampung Baru or “Kampong Bharu” (meaning “New Village”) is a Malay enclave in central Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. One of the most valuable tracts of land in the capital, it has been estimated to be worth up to US$ 1.4 billion. Kampung Baru’s elders have turned developers away, saying they want to preserve their ethnic Malay lifestyle. – Wiki
The man most passionate about this piece of gold mine is Tun Mahathir, the current Prime Minister of Malaysia under the new government of Pakatan Harapan. This passion of his began when he was the PM in the old Barisan Nasional regime, but failed to formulate a win-win deal with the landowners and the redevelopment project failed to materialize. He thought he could execute the same program as the one in Langkawi island, which btw is his first passion through the brokerage of Langkawi Development Authority (LADA).
Unfortunately (or fortunately) Mahathir couldn’t be present and his video opening address was screened on stage.
This time around the landowners gathered only to ask the question, “How much are you offering?” The moment the price was spewed from the mouth of the presenter Khalid Samad, the Minister of Federal Territory, the audience roared in jeers and boos!
The offing of RM850/sq. ft, was taken as humiliating by the landowners! Humiliating because the justifications for the low price as compared to the land prices surrounding Kampung Baru were lame and ludicrous.
Over the last couple of years, land transactions in the Bukit Bintang and KLCC areas have been concluded at between RM3,100 and RM3,600 psf. The offing of RM850/sq. ft, was taken as humiliating by the landowners! Humiliating because the justifications for the low price as compared to the land prices surrounding Kampong Baru were lame and ludicrous. – EdgeProp
BTW the iconic Twin Towers KLCC is just a stone’s throw away across the Gombak River, and in fact it is so close the tall shadows of the Twin Towers will fall on Kampong Baru.
And the reasons for for the humiliating offer is more humiliating. Look, racism is prime time in Malaysia and every policy and issues of control are wrapped and packed in boxes printed the word “Malay” on them. Now, here its all about Malay landowners and the bloody excuse of the low price offing is because Kampung Baru is a Reserved Malay land which the Colonial British administrators gazetted as a Malay agricultural settlement in 1900 under the Malay Agricultural Settlement Act. Kampung Baru and her landowners is the epitome of the very word “Malay” and you can’t be more Malay than them in Malaysia.
Befuddling and ludicrous? Like hell it is.
Well, as far as the village folks are concerned the whole deal is old crap garnished with new artificial flavorings and it taste like rat meat.
Apparently being a Malay in the Malay heartland has its setbacks and not properly priced in status and symbol.
The special status of the land should put the Malays in higher stead and marked by a high land price tag. Isn’t that what its supposed to be anyway for the Superior Bumiputra?
Apparently not, the government kept harping on the Malays being poor and can’t afford anything and the Kampung Baru issue nailed that down.
Btw, Mahathir said during his days in the previous regime that Kampung Baru is akin to the Indian Reservation in America,

Do Probability and Statistics interest you? Perhaps not. But what about the secret workings of a casino? They are but two sides of the same coin. One side is science, the other application. Economics is the science of the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. The application of economics, if honed to a specific, razor sharp intention becomes the most powerful weapon on Earth. This weapon is called the Central Banking system. No country owns this weapon. It is wielded by a tiny circle of people. The identities of these people are largely hidden, but it is abundantly clear they owe allegiance to no country, despot or political ideology. They deploy this weapon at their own discretion. We are the frogs in the proverbial pot of water and they are controlling the stove.
In the 2019 fiscal year the United States Government will spend 1.1 trillion dollars more than it will collect in taxes.(source)This number is called the “budget deficit.” Operating with a budget deficit is nothing new in our government’s history. This has been going on for decades, independent of which party has controlled the White House or Congress. If you were to add together all the deficits over the years you would arrive at a sum of approximately 22 trillion dollars. This number is called the “national debt.”
The ability to “pay off” this debt seems impossible, yet we continue to operate more or less the same way, borrowing more and more to meet our country’s obligation to social services, defense, infrastructure, and obligations to our debt holders. Most people are aware of these staggering numbers, yet few of us seem to consider basic questions about the system, like “Where does the money come from?” or “Who would be stupid enough to continue lending us these sums given our poor track record of even balancing our budget?” The answers to these questions are astounding and can lead to an understanding of our nation’s history and monetary system that is absolutely necessary to put nearly every aspect of geopolitics into perspective.
In “The Creature From Jekyll Island,” author G. Edward Griffin adeptly leads the reader on an intriguing exploration of the origin of money, lending and the banking system and its codependence with the governance of people. Through his thorough examination of military conflicts, the rise and fall of governments and repeated taxpayer funded bailouts, Mr. Griffin makes it abundantly clear that human history has been driven more by the inner workings of centralized banking and not the will of individuals or even the apparent vision of their appointed leaders.
The Federal Reserve, covertly conceived by the wealthiest few and brought into existence by Congress in 1913, is part of a global system of centralized banking that has been devised for a purpose unseen and much different than what the public and most of our elected leaders and legislators believe. The result of this system, as evidenced by repeated examples, has not been to stabilize economies but to destabilize them. In his diligent and erudite analysis, Mr. Griffin goes further in asserting that this has been the intention of the founders of the modern banking system all along.
To accept his bold assertion it is useful to first consider how this is accomplished before understanding why it is done in the first place. A full analysis of this subject is obviously beyond the scope of a single article. However, we can still arrive at a basic understanding of the system and its repercussions here. advertisement – learn more
As stated above, the total national debt is on the order of 22 trillion dollars as of 2019. However, according to The Federal Reserve there is only about 1.7 trillion dollars of currency in circulation. Where are the other 20 trillion dollars? Clearly, it exists only as numbers attached to accounts existing in computer memory. Monetary transactions are no longer dominated by the exchange of currency backed by a commodity (like gold or silver), they are instead represented by the increase of a receiver’s account balance that corresponds to the equivalent decrement in the account of the payer. This, of course, seems like a reasonable system that is equitable to both parties. However, if you examine it more closely, certain fundamental questions arise, primarily, where did the money come from in the first place?
The total amount of money in circulation in 1950 was approximately 27 billion dollars. How do we now have 60 times more money? The answer is that it was created by our banks and the Federal Reserve, an institution uniquely endowed by our government to “print” money at its own discretion. This should strike you as unnerving for two reasons. First, our elected officials do not decide when more money is put into circulation, they have abdicated that authority to the Federal Reserve that acts independently. Second, why is there ever a reason to do this in the first place?
Clearly, the amount of goods and services generated by the country has grown with our population and its concomitant increase in our labor force. Also, innovation in manufacturing and the development of technologies have given rise to less expensive ways to make stuff. We have also engineered methods for extracting our natural resources, making the required raw materials more abundantly available for industry. These changes continually influence the supply and demand for goods and services that ultimately will dictate what things cost. These are the “market” forces that capitalism relies upon to self-regulate and ostensibly create an environment for innovation. If the amount of money in circulation is left untouched, prices will continually readjust to represent the total value of the total amount of goods and services generated by an economy. There should never be a need to put more money into circulation.
The expansion of the supply of money is less accomplished by the actual printing of legal tender than it is by the “creation” of debt. To illustrate this, let us consider a simplistic model of how a bank works. First, a bank serves as a secure place to store depositor’s money. The bank issues the depositor a receipt of deposit. Long ago these receipts were recognized as being more convenient than actually using coins to facilitate transactions. The “money” was in a vault, but the receipts of deposit, when they began to be accepted as payment by a third party, began functioning as money itself. Griffin explains that this form of money is termed “receipt money.” The modern representation of this convenience has taken the form of checking accounts.
When the bank acts as a lending institution, it can also provide depositors with an added incentive to keep their holdings there in the form of interest. The bank can pay this interest on its deposits by lending this money out to other customers in the form of mortgages, business and personal loans, etc. and charging a higher interest on these sums. The ability of private citizens and industry to have access to money to purchase homes or invest in their businesses or education allows for economic growth and a higher standard of living and is generally considered a good thing and something we all depend upon.
When we receive a loan to purchase something that we cannot “afford” we understand that it has not been given to us for free. We will pay for it over time. In fact, we will pay more for it through a loan than if we purchased it outright. The higher the rate of interest and the longer the term of the loan, the more we end up paying. In the case of a home mortgage paid over thirty years the borrower ends up paying several times the amount they borrowed. This is all spelled out to the borrower when they sign the promissory note and agree to the terms.
However, there is something insidious happening when banks lend money today. The money that gets lent is not possessed by the bank, it is owned by the depositors of the money. The depositors are free to continue to withdraw from their accounts, meanwhile the borrowers also have access to the very same pool of money. When your bank loans a sum of money to another party the amount in your account there does not get reduced. So, where does the money come from? The bank is essentially creating money out of debt and subsequently collecting interest on it. This money is added to circulation and when this happens, the value of every single dollar in the system gets depleted. Prices go up. This is inflation, and it can exact a devastating toll on the system depending on how much debt is created.
As amazing as it may seem, banks are only required to keep available a fraction (10% or less) of the amount of money they lend on hand to meet the needs of their depositors. Clearly there may come a time when a large number of depositors demand their money to be returned at the same time. This is the dreaded “run on the bank” which should send the bank into insolvency. However, this rarely happens these days for two reasons. One is based upon the confidence we place on our banking institutions to make sound loans and upon the economy in general. As long as we are confident that the bank will return our money if we asked, we won’t demand it back. Secondly, banks operating in the central banking system are able to borrow money from other banks to meet the demands of their depositors when needed.
The Federal Reserve, with the power Congress has endowed it with, sets standards for the portion of money banks within its system are allowed to loan compared to the money in their “vaults.” Because the profitability of the bank is directly related to the amount of money they loan out, banks are motivated to maximize the amount they lend. Furthermore, because a lifeline to more money through other banks exists, there is little reason for any individual bank to be conservative. By uniting banks under common lending practices it becomes clear that no individual bank will be allowed to go bankrupt. However, there now exists the possibility that many or all banks may fail simultaneously with a deep and widespread dive in consumer confidence and/or an accumulation of a great amount of bad debt. Note that the latter will automatically give rise to the former as in the case of the great recession of 2008 when it became recognized that a massive number of irresponsible home loans were made over the course of a decade.
When such a crisis arises, it is made clear to the public that a dire situation is at hand and it would result in major suffering for all if the government didn’t intervene. Government steps in by infusing the banking system with large sums of money. This money does not exist anywhere. It is created on the fly by the issuance of government bonds, essentially IOUs. But who would be willing to accept government IOUs in such a crisis? Nobody. Nobody, except the Federal Reserve. Through the purchase of government debt the Federal Reserve floods the system with essentially a limitless amount of “money.” This money did not come from the sale of goods and services or gold bars from the treasury. This money is ink on paper called Federal Reserve Checks which are used to fund government debt and ultimately result in greater balances in commercial bank accounts when the government spends it. The crisis gets averted. Or does it?
In the short run, the economy does not grind to a halt, and we laud the intervention as a success. However, there has been no increase in the amount of goods, commodities or services that the nation possesses. There is just more money out there. When that happens, the value of every single piece of currency, including the money in your wallet, drops. We grumble at the necessity of more taxes and less governmental services but few taxpayers realize the extent that their own wealth has been decremented by an unseen cost called inflation, the direct cause of poor lending practices of our banks. We are told that we are in a crisis for a number of vague and complex reasons having to do with rarely agreed upon economic theories and a failure of our leaders to appreciate them. In fact, the reasons are simple. We have a system where banks can and will make the most profit if they make more loans. When they fail, the Federal Reserve ultimately steps in by creating more debt, which we shoulder by allowing our earnings and savings to be devalued.
Let us briefly review. The Federal Reserve has united most banks to accept universal lending practices. This effectively prevents individual banks from defaulting on their obligations, but creates a situation where a nationwide or global banking crisis can occur. When (not if) that occurs, the Fed has an understanding with the government that it will infuse the system with money by “buying” government debt (in the form of government bonds) that will be used to “salvage” the system. The public will eventually pay for this in two ways. First, through the obligation to repay the debt and interest and second, through inflation as money floods the system. It should be clear then that this maneuver is designed to keep lending institutions in perpetual business aggrandizing their wealth.
It is important at this point to look more closely at the money making machine the banks use for generating profit. Recall that banks are only required to hold no more than ten percent of their deposits (assets) on hand and are free to loan out the rest. However, there is a greater harm they can exact through our banking system’s definition of an “asset.” Let us say that a bank holds $1,000,000 in deposits. It can write $900,000 worth of loans on that money keeping $100,000, or 10% of it on its books as “reserves.” That money loaned out does not exist, it is created the moment the loan is written. Once written, that loan, effectively the promise of the borrower to pay it back, is now considered an asset of the bank too! This means that the bank can subsequently write loans of 90% of that “asset” (or another $810,000) as well. Once the second round of loans go out, they too are considered assets. This iterative process effectively allows the bank to “loan” out $9 for every $1 it was given as a deposit. The bank uses the one million dollars in deposits (reserves) to “create” nine million dollars in debt and, of course, earn interest on it. The term “earn” is highly questionable in this scheme. The bank provides no real service, creates no tangible product, does no labor and assumes little risk yet is able to collect a continuous stream of money from assets that never existed until the moment someone agreed to borrow from them. This is called “fractional reserve banking” and as shocking as it seems, it exists wherever an economy has abandoned a commodity (gold or silver) backed currency. In other words, everywhere.
Turning back to Mr. Griffin’s assertion that the system has been designed to create instability, we can see that the banking system reaps the greatest benefit when needs exceed resources. The Federal Reserve (and any central bank) has the sole authority to create money when the need for debt arises. Is it unreasonable that central banks, functioning without accountability to any authority, government or otherwise, would welcome every opportunity to exert this power, especially when it is so lucrative to them?
If we were to examine the situation from a central banker’s perspective we would regard global events in the context of debt. What kind of event creates the greatest and most urgent need for resources? War. War requires a nation to redirect their youth away from the creation of goods and services and into military service. There is the cost of munitions, fuel, care for the wounded and ultimately reparations. The bigger and the longer the war the better …if you were a central banker.
Could there really be an unholy alliance between central banking and governmental war machines? This may be obvious to some, but to many this approaches absurdity. A government for and by the people seems too powerful to be influenced by financiers and monetary policy makers. If banking insiders had any influence over our elected officials, the media would bring immediate public attention to it, right? In order for this kind of treachery to take place it would require the hidden collaboration of a very small group of extremely influential persons in government, central banking and the media. This would be a conspiracy, which many believe would be impossible today.
There is no question that it has happened in the past. As detailed in “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” the United States entered WWI after The Lusitania, a massive British liner with 195 American civilians on board, was sunk by a German U-boat attack. Prior to setting sail from New York, The Lusitania was loaded with tons of weaponry including six million rounds of ammunition purchased with funds raised for England through JP Morgan’s investment house. This was done in broad daylight with the ship’s manifest a matter of public record. The German government protested that using such a ship to transport weapons was in direct violation of international neutrality treaties. The American government denied this was taking place. The German embassy then appealed to the American people directly, placing ads in newspapers urging them not to book passage on The Lusitania as it represented a strategic target that would fall under German attack. The U.S. State Department prevented these warnings from being run.
At this time J. P. Morgan, one of the chief architects of the newly created Federal Reserve, was profiting from selling English and French bonds to American investors to raise money for their war effort against Germany. In addition, the two countries spent significant sums on products purchased from companies in Morgan’s control. When it became clear that Germany was nearing victory through their control of shipping lanes in the Atlantic with their U-boats, Morgan’s income stream was threatened. England, France and the American investing house knew their causes would only be saved if the United States entered the war against Germany. At the time this seemed a practical impossibility as Woodrow Wilson, approaching reelection, was riding a broad anti-war sentiment sweeping the country. This all changed when the The Lusitania sank. Morgan had, in the meantime, purchased control over major segments of the media and flooded the public with pro-war editorial. The media, the banks and our government worked together to see that America entered WWI on April 6, 1917. War expenditures, as always, were fueled by monetary expansion engineered by The Fed. Between 1915 and 1920 the monetary supply doubled and the value of our currency dropped by nearly 50%.
WWI is one of many examples in our planet’s history where the spoils of war went largely to the inner circles of the banking system that often finance both sides of conflicts. If this version of history still seems too incredible to believe, consider this: How often would a nation engage in war if it didn’t have the money to pay for it? Nations rarely do, unless they have a central banking system. Conventional history books paint our species’ long tradition of conflict as good vs. evil or liberty vs. tyranny while characterizing dictators and their ideologies as threats to the greater good. The real threat is hidden in plain sight and is far more diabolical, as it is not confined by borders or allegiance to governments that inevitably rise and fall.

Some scientists such as quantum gravitational expert Carlo Rovelli and physicist Julian Barbour seem to believe that time is not real and should be removed from the equations of physics so that we can move forward with a unified theory.
Maybe they are correct.

To govern is to rule and to do that one must be on top of the object/subject.
There are two ways to govern:
Historically the first method failed because it is literally ‘bloody‘ cumbersome to the governor whilst it is revolting to the governed, which offered no peace to the governor ending up spending more time suppressing the resistance than governing the subjects.
The second method is more effective, quite stable and easier to manage. Btw this’ ongoing as you’re reading. The governor forms a team and aptly called it govern-ment (Latin for mind [mens, mentis]), govern-the-mind.
The modern day govern-ment is highly organized and structured for a systemic control and it seems to work fairly well albeit a few resistance here and there by colorful boat-rockers.
The main device to deal with disorder and resistance is the inglorious Law. The Law is tightly enforced and policed, and law-breakers will be dealt-with by the Legal and Justice system
Armed with the legal-machinery, the governor can now govern and loot the subjects (peacefully).
The bigger the subjects the more tedious it gets. Its difficult to police every individual subject, but the governor accepted that and its ready to lose to some (clever) sneakers, but try catch them whenever he can.
In actuality the current form of control is flimsy because it is basically docu-control (data documented) method.
…and so on.
To get the paper money one has to beg, borrow or steal…or “under-the-table”
Corruption is boring many big holes in the system, collapsing it and destroys the governor.
Corrupt politicians/businessmen/police/judges and just about everybody else.
The Orwellian governor must now come up with a meaner system if he is to remain relevant because the giant has awakened.
If properly and effectively understood, it will become the generally accepted notion that every thinking and reasonable person knows that using the coercive power of the government to compel anyone to sacrifice their life for others is as ethically not right as expecting others to be forced to sacrifice for them.
Then, as a matter of implied first principles, it will be impossible for some in the society to successfully coerce others through the tools of political power because it will be culturally counter to the general habit of the mind that liberty is too precious as both a moral and practical matter to be forgone for even the most attractive short-run gains from political paternalism and plunder.
It is neither an easy nor a quick task to change, in this sense, the climate of opinion about the appropriate moral order to sustain a free, prosperous, and ethical society. But we have no tools other than our minds and our reason and an understanding that it is in our own self-interest to try.
If enough of us take on this task, the growth in government can be both halted and reversed. The world of plunder can be replaced with a community of free people pursuing mutually beneficial peaceful production. The democratic dilemma of every growing government will be brought to an end. – AIER

Malaysia as a nation is relatively peaceful given the general scenario of the world at large. She has her share of woes, but to groan and complain would suggest selfishness when she has much to be grateful for.
This small nation went through an epiphany at the recent 14th general election (GE14), when she for the first time in 61 years since her independence from the grasps of colonialism sees new hope for great change.
It took her six decades to realise the ‘soft fascism’ (no such thing really, there’s only fascism) she was in while under the reign of a band of arrogant home grown politicians who rallied together calling themselves Barisan Nasional (National Front) lead by UMNO. The straw that broke the camel’s back is the infamous 1MDB affair which literally bankrupted Malaysia and turned her into a pauper nation.
Thinking for the better, the people collectively removed the corrupt regime and handed her to a new alliance labelled as Pakatan Harapan (Alliance of Hope) on the night May 9 2018, the night the earth moved.
Nine months down the road, disillusionment hovers over the people when the change expected of the new government doesn’t show, or rather trekking at snail’s pace, which to the human eyes is seen as a standstill.
Without going into the boring details, I’ll get straight to the point of this essay.
Its the system and stupid politicians STUPID!
The current government is made up of 90% politicians who were in the opposition all their political lives. Life and perception on this side of the political divide was different being in a different box looking at another box (The government). They saw the garbage and filth in the other box. They were clear of what’s to be done and change, and had the tenacity to do it given the chance.
Well, they have now entered the ‘other’ (filthy) box, which they are now supposed to clean, but…they left the brooms in the box they were in.
Not only that, their eyes developed cataracts and couldn’t find or see any dirt in there. With blurred visions and minds, they simply carried on with their new roles using whatever is in the dirty box.
And…the ousted old politicians are now in the ‘clean’ opposition box. They seem to have new visions without the cataracts, and are set to sanitize the dirty box which they were in.
Get the picture?
Politicians are akin to hamsters in a spinning wheel – the political wheel absence of any wills.
So what’s next for Malaysia and Malaysians?
Tbh, nothing much really. Not until GE15, or better still get rid of the politics box, or any kind of box and try out something new like a open bathtub which everyone will be naked

My 2019 Story
Last night, I was at TF Supermart in PD just passing time waiting for the wifey doing acupuncture, and I saw bananas and decided to pick a small bunch and went to the pay-counter, which had a long queue. By the time I got to the cashier, she exclaimed, “Ini mesti timbang dan letak harga!” (This has to be weighted and priced)
Silly me! I thought. What was I thinking and this isn’t my first time at supermarts?
Looking at the long queue, I decided just to put them bananas back and forget about the whole thing.
Walking back, something tells me to go and get it weighted and priced.
So I did and went back to re-join the long queue. This’ very unlike me, let me tell you.
Suddenly I noticed a woman waving at me, and I pointed to myself at her and she nodded. She was directing me to come in front of her as her husband was checking-out their purchases for payment at the cashier.
The cashier remembered me and interrupted the husband and checked my bananas costing RM3:30 and said, “Kasi duit kat dia!” (Give her the money [to the lady])
When I handed the money to the lady, she said, “Tak apa, saya belanja abang!” (Its alright. Its my treat!)
I insisted to pay and said, “No, No. Awak dah terlalu baik dan saya mesti bayar!” (No, No. You’re already too kind) but she smiled and totally refused!
What did I do to deserve such great kindness and love? ⁉
Bowing and saying “Terima Kasih” (Thank you) several times to the lady I walked away highly emotional and asked myself,
What’s the (BIG) message?
I am already dangerously turning into a misanthrope in this mad-mad world.
I felt a surge of tremendous love for humanity inside… and the message is:
Be kind. Be Love.
💜❤ Love to all of you reading this!
If you’ve not heard of 1MDB, you should discontinue reading…as you’re in a different world where everything is fine in there, but you’re surely missing something.
All the hype about the 1MDB heist was centered around two rogues:
What was revealed in the Billion Dollar Whale is that Najib Razak was duped by Jho Low and that’s the simple line to sum up the whole dramatic, but surely complicating (?) fraud worth billions of dollars.
I’m not going to delve into the details of the scam because you can read all that at The Financial Times, WSJ, Sarawak Report etc., etc., etc.
Its all about the money. Can you think of anything else in this world that isn’t?
Haa…I can see your eyes looking upwards with a …Hmmm?
You can stop wandering/wondering.
Everything is all about that damned (fiat) money.
“So you think that money is the root of all evil? […] Have you ever asked what is the root of money?
~ Ayn Rand
This is the whole point.
Who controls and issue them toilet papers?
If you don’t know, you should also discontinue reading, because you’re enjoying your life with the money in your bank account and you care a hoot about anything else.
Back to the 1MDB story and its all about the money and the thieves.
I for one wouldn’t put all the blame on the two rogues as I see them as players in this game of theft. Surely you don’t think these two thieves are so smart to pull off this greatest heist on Earth all by themselves? Quite on the contrary. its their stupidity (not knowing who their big bosses are) that this epic scam got blown off to pieces.
You see, its about money and no one but the ‘controllers’ decide everything in the money game. No, not Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings or Queens.
The financial system was designed, created and operated by them ‘controllers’, who also created, issue and distribute the toilet paper around the globe (hate that word).
Gathering laid the groundwork for lucrative Malaysia deals
Meeting involved former Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak
The meeting offered Blankfein a chance to speak with Najib in his first year as prime minister, and Najib’s visit to New York included meetings with other business leaders and U.S. investors. A month after the gathering, Malaysia’s securities commission announced that Goldman Sachs would set up fund management and corporate finance advisory operations in the nation.
The financial system is operated by the controller’s agents and brokers as facilitators and gatekeepers, and nothing moves without their ‘guidance’, add-vices and approvals, especially when you’re talking about billions of toilet papers. They must have a big slice of the loot…of course.
“Western professionals “under the guise” of bankers, offshore incorporators, media specialists, investors, and others are helping corrupt individuals “get their money from the scene of the crime, funnel it through the offshore system, and into developed economies.” – Rewcastle Brown
And the thingy about the controllers, they throw the thieves under the bus when they don’t need them anymore.
Can’t say I pity them thieves.
Like I always say – Its the system stupid!
Governments are perplexed on the tobacco issue. To tax (more) or not to.
A catch 22 situation.
“If we raise the cigarette prices until it is not affordable to the B40 group, then they will turn to the cheaper illicit cigarettes that will expose them to a series of non-communicable diseases (NDC): chronic pulmonary disease, chronic cardiovascular disease, lung cancer. – Malay Mail
Reading the above report will transform you into a mental inmate. The bozos in the corridors of power are actually the inmates running the institution.
The dough-nuts are primarily cracking their heads on the dough like a mad-dog chasing its tail.
Dzulkefly said that currently the cost to treat the three top NDC related to smoking is RM2.29 billion, adding that the government subsidises 67.5 per cent of the treatment cost with 32.5 per cent paid by the patient.
The treatment cost is 0.7 per cent of the nation’s GDP, he said.
Its got nothing to do with the well-being of the people. Its about the dough they have to cough up on so called health-care, if the figures are at all correct let alone true.
More importantly how much money goes into their pockets.
By being greedy they have a problem – they’re playing into the highly competitive black-markets’ hands.
So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our balls?
With just the beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?
Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar
No. I don’t tell you what to eat or exercise to be healthy.
I don’t know what is good or bad for you.
What I’d say here is somewhat radical and which escapes most people…its all about data.
What has data got to do with health?
A lot, let me tell you:
Primo: Most if not all people are now in a state of confusion due to data overload. The outcome is confusion. Why? Mismanagement of data. So manage it! How? If I have to tell you, then you should stay off-line. Data is the foundation of AI and definitely for us (humans) too, and its all about managing it as in (IT)?
Secundo: Everybody is very hyped about their HEALTH nowadays and is in a frenzy-rush into dieting. Good data about this is in abundance on-line. Again the word “data“. Manage it! Remember – we are all differently built and configured and that old adage “One man’s meat is another’s poison” is still good advice. You should know your own body better than any doctor or health-freak-specialist. If you don’t know that. That’s the reason you’re unhealthy and you should be sick by now.
Trio: Have a good fulfilling life while enjoying your food…and manage them data (of course)
“You cannot teach someone anything who is incapable of actually listening objectively to anything no less understand the actual political system in which we live.” ~ Martin Armstrong
The speech was a serious one and it was as serious as it could be.The PM wasn’t joking and it wasn’t funny.
The audience laughed and clapped their hands.
People have been dumbed-down by lies all their lives that they don’t know the truth when they hear it.
Never has the world been more concern about human’s health than in this new millennium. With the advent of the Internet, people have awaken (no thanks to governments) to the health hazards in their intake of food and drinks, air pollution and the environment as a whole.
We can see the hospitals are overcrowded and the long waiting-list at the clinics surely is alarming. Health freaks are mushrooming in numbers and the parks are full of joggers and walkers who think that exercise alone will optimize their well-being. Foodies have turned vegetarians and worse – vegans. Its a fast growing cult. Running a gym is now a viable profitable business.
Is that all it takes to be healthy?
Can one remain healthy with pollution in the air, rivers, and seas? These are global issues and this’ where the governments come in.
I am not going to delve with these issues especially when the hyped Global Warming and Climate Change are a big farce. Nuff said.
Let’s look at Malaysia now as the (new) government is geared on a national no-smoking campaign.
The ministry is pushing to gazette all open-air restaurants as no-smoking areas, said Deputy Health Minister Dr Lee Boon Chye. [The Star]
Lol! This’ rather humorous:
An MP was among eight people who received a compound notice for smoking in the Parliament building, says the Health Ministry.
The fine was given out to the offenders after the Ministry sent out enforcers to check on smoking hot spots in Parliament on Monday (Oct 15) after the smoking ban took effect in Parliament. [The Star]
Yes, I smoke and yes I know about the related health issues, but I practice good social etiquette when I do it and I surely respect the rights of non-smokers and so I smoke in the open air, far… far from the health-freaks mostly to avoid their patronizing holier-healthier-than-thou attitudes and their cringed faces .
“When we connect the dots through medicine, science, history, psychology and sociology, the truth emerges plain as day: the all-out global propaganda campaign against tobacco is part of the same push for ‘full-spectrum dominance’ over humanity in all other spheres. The targets and victims of the fake ‘War on Terror’ are the same targets of the war against tobacco. We are expected to believe that our wonderful ‘leaders’ encourage us to eat poisonous GMO food yet are oh, so concerned about the alleged health effects from smoking? Give us a break!” – PTM
If the governments are serious, truthful and sincere about the hazards and dangers of smoking, then they should totally ban it, instead of making a daily big fuss and continuing with money wasting non-stop campaigns.
Why not ban tobacco? I will not answer what the governments won’t.
There is a more serious and dangerous human activity, which the governments are not (adequately) addressing – vehicle emissions.
Read here for Car Emissions For Testing Facts
Some governments do take it seriously and have taken actions against car manufacturers like Volkswagen and Audi, and even arrested a CEO.
Volkswagen AG’s Audi unit agreed to pay an 800 million-euro ($926 million) fine for its role in the diesel-cheating scandal that has disrupted the car industry for more than three years and landed Audi’s longtime leader in jail. – Bloomberg
The problem in Malaysia is that smoking as a health issue is under the purview of the Ministry of Health. They aren’t bothered about emission issues because that comes under the purview of the Ministry of Transport. These two ministries are using separate and different algorithms in dealing with two (unrelated) things – tobacco and vehicles.
Hence, vehicle emission is never a health issue rather than a traffic nuisance and therefore car-owners (most are health-freaks too) do not see and care about the hazardous smoke their shining Bimmers, Mercks and SUVs billow into the atmosphere. At the same time these same hypocrites join in the anti-smoking campaign with vigor like their lives depended on it.
Then there is this haze thingy…well, this is a foreign diplomatic issue and a sensitive one at that.
What about them thick black smoke from refineries and factories…?

On the night of May 09 2018, the earth moved and Malaysia is never to be the same. Malaysians have never seen such an event and were overwhelmed with joy. Two weeks have gone by and we are now faced with the rubbles and garbage underneath the mangled wreckage of the rotten past administration’s ship.
The clean up action by the new government begun almost immediately the next day. It started with assessing the damage and reports of the various parts of the government machinery came in one by one. The list is long and even Santa Claus shook his head in disbelief when compared to his annual Christmas present delivery list.
Simply put, the country was robbed of its assets and finances, and are now literally broke and left with a humongous amount of debt, which is impossible to ever be repaid… anytime.
The new government swiftly put together a couple of think tank groupscomprising of the nation’s crème de la crème to help and advice on how to lift the country out of its predicament.
Please allow me to give my two-cent opinion.
Malaysia inherited a filthy rotten system from her colonial masters in her pursuance of “independence” 61 years ago and without much thinking (then and even now) accepted it as the only way to be independent, to build and run a nation. After all the leaders then had nothing, zilch to go by and didn’t know any better (how to run a country/company). The rest as they say is history.
May 09 2018, 61 years later we’re left in a worse position than when we were colonized. The freedom we were shouting and dreaming of was just that – a dream. It is in fact a nightmare.
There is only ONE way to get out of this nightmare.
No. Repairs and tweaking won’t work. Trust me.
How do you mend a broken flimsy system which was designed to break?
We must reset and boot into a completely NEW system, which has never been done before and (I know) which will cringe even the best political science professors, economists, and politicians. YES they will faint.
What caused the disaster?
Everybody shouted “CORRUPTION!”.
They are going after the corrupt ex PM and his forty thieves. Rightly so!
Will that solve the problem?
No. How about a revolution? Definitely a no no. Its a vicious cycle.
Corruption is the symptom. The disease is called “Centralization” and the only treatment is de-centralization
Have you heard of Blockchain?
Now though, perhaps more than ever before, the future is clouded in uncertainty. No one really knows what the world will truly look like in ten, twenty, fifty years. Unfortunately, this often leads a lot of people to believe it will be fraught with distrust, turmoil and maybe even a bit of madness.
As our world evolves, so do the breakthroughs that help meet those fears head on. And with technologies like the blockchain reconfiguring the way we interact with one another, the future may well be a very bright place.
You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.
See…I told you people will cringe!
If you’ve been following the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency developments and news you’ll find that ALL the governments and banksters in the world are against it and for a good reason. Behind/underneath Bitcoin is Blockchain, which will decentralize every Federal government and the dreaded Central Banks.
I will not drag this essay into the nitty-gritties of this technology and leave you to read and research it…and perhaps will see that it is the ONLY way forward.
On a final note I suggest you also find and learn more about Quantum Computing, which, believe me will change the world as you know it.
Will the new government Pakatan Harapan be willing?

To be normal is the ideal aim of the unsuccessful – Carl Jung
Imagine your least-favorite world leader. (Take as much time as you need.)
Now, imagine if that person wasn’t a human, but a network of millions of computers around the world. This digi-dictator has instant access to every scrap of recorded information about every person who’s ever lived. It can make millions of calculations in a fraction of a second, controls the world’s economy and weapons systems with godlike autonomy and — scariest of all — can never, ever die.
This unkillable digital dictator, according to Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, is one of the darker scenarios awaiting humankind’s future if artificial-intelligence research continues without serious regulation. [Super-Intelligent Machines: 7 Robotic Futures]
“We are rapidly headed toward digital superintelligence that far exceeds any human, I think it’s pretty obvious,” Musk said in a new AI documentary called “Do You Trust This Computer?” directed by Chris Paine (who interviewed Musk previously for the documentary “Who Killed The Electric Car?”). “If one company or a small group of people manages to develop godlike digital super-intelligence, they could take over the world.”
Humans have tried to take over the world before. However, an authoritarian AI would have one terrible advantage over like-minded humans, Musk said.
“At least when there’s an evil dictator, that human is going to die,” Musk added. “But for an AI there would be no death. It would live forever, and then you’d have an immortal dictator, from which we could never escape.”
And, this hypothetical AI-dictator wouldn’t even have to be evil to pose a threat to humans, Musk added. All it has to be is determined.
“If AI has a goal and humanity just happens to be in the way, it will destroy humanity as a matter of course without even thinking about it. No hard feelings,” Musk said. “It’s just like, if we’re building a road, and an anthill happens to be in the way. We don’t hate ants, we’re just building a road. So, goodbye, anthill.”
Those who follow news from the Musk-verse will not be surprised by his opinions in the new documentary; the tech mogul has long been a vocal critic of unchecked artificial intelligence. In 2014, Musk called AI humanity’s “biggest existential threat,” and in 2015, he joined a handful of other tech luminaries and researchers, including Stephen Hawking, to urge the United Nations to ban killer robots. He has said unregulated AI poses “vastly more risk than North Korea” and proposed starting some sort of federal oversight program to monitor the technology’s growth.
“Public risks require public oversight,” he tweeted. “Getting rid of the FAA [wouldn’t] make flying safer. They’re there for good reason.”
“Do You Trust This Computer?” focuses on the growing public health and safety concerns linked to the rise of AI, and contains interviews with many other tech moguls, researchers and Erica the creepy news-casting robot.

Despite mounting domestic opposition, the administration of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak appears determined to ram through parliament an odious bill ostensibly intended to curb fake news.
Though the government insists that the law is not intended to stop people from exercising their right to freedom of speech as provided for in the Federal Constitution, there is every reason to be seriously concerned. Under the guise of curbing fake news, the bill will gravely impair what remains of free speech and the right to dissent. The consequences will be devastating.
An array of civil society and human rights groups, journalists, lawyers, politicians and prominent national leaders are in unanimous agreement that the pending bill represents a fatal assault on our democracy. If it passes, and the indications are that it will (thanks to the shameful dereliction of duty of so many of our MPs), it will mean the end of the road for democracy in Malaysia. – Dennis Ignatius

What qualifies as fake news, however, is ill defined. Ultimately, the government would be given broad latitude to decide what constitutes fact in Malaysia.
“Instead of a proper investigation into what happened, we have a ministry of truth being created,” said Nurul Izzah Anwar, a lawmaker from the People’s Justice Party and the daughter of the jailed opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.

Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook for dumb fucks :
Zuckerberg explained to a friend that his control of Facebook gave him access to any information he wanted on any Harvard student:
Zuck: yea so if you ever need info about anyone at harvard
Zuck: just ask
Zuck: i have over 4000 emails, pictures, addresses, sns
Friend: what!? how’d you manage that one?
Zuck: people just submitted it
Zuck: i don’t know why
Zuck: they “trust me”
Zuck: dumb fucks
Its pretty clear ain’t it?
A thief is a thief and stealing is his preoccupation.
In this case, Zuckerberg didn’t have to steal as YOU (dumb fucks) served it (your complete data) to him on a silver platter.
Replying to the dumb fucks in the current Cambridge Analytica scandal:
…and he’s right about that as I’ve twitted earlier:
Of course its YOU.
You and many won’t dare to #deletefacebook for all the dumb reasons:
… and stop moaning!
#deletefacebook if you dare!
Following a scandal, caused by recent Facebook data breach, and the social media outrage with people deleting their accounts at the website, Elon Musk decided to join the #deletefacebook movement and delete Facebook accounts of his car company Tesla and rocket company SpaceX, which had more than 5 million followers combined.
The visionary and multi-billionaire, who has recently launched a red roadster into space, has accepted a trending social media challenge by removing pages of both of his companies from Facebook.
Facebook is in hot water right now after it emerged that third party organizations, such as data and political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica, had access to private information about Facebook users.
Responding to messages during a Twitter storm caused by the data breach, Elon Musk said that he didn’t even know that there is a SpaceX page on Facebook and agreed to delete it. “What’s Facebook?” Elon replied to a tweet with a trending hashtag #deletefacebook.
Company accused of harvesting personal data from Facebook is said to have “provided advice” on Malaysia’s 2013 general election
Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Tuesday denied claims his government had ever engaged the tainted data analytics firm Cambridge Analytica, and instead accused his rival Mahathir Mohamad’s son as the person who had used the company’s controversial services before he crossed aisles to join the opposition.
Speculation about Cambridge Analytica’s involvement in Malaysia has been swirling since one of the company’s senior executives was secretly recorded by Britain’s Channel 4 as saying that it had used a web of shell companies to disguise campaigning activities in Mexico, Malaysia and Brazil.
Cambridge Analytica is also at the centre of a global maelstrom after reports emerged this week that it harvested personal data about Facebook users from 2014. Read further…
So Najib denies what is clearly displayed on Cambridge Analytica’s website?
…and what about this:
Cambridge Analytica’s Malaysia address:
16, Jalan Kenyalang 11/4G, 47810 Kota Damansara, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia
The damage is done and its time to make Facebook face the book.
Up to 50 million Facebook users had their information used by Cambridge Analytica, a private company, without their knowledge or consent. That’s not okay.
This wasn’t a data breach, no one hacked into Facebook or stole passwords. It happened because Facebook allowed apps to access not just sensitive information of people who used those programs – but their friends as well.
Facebook said it’s taken steps to “limit developer access to detailed friend data”, but Facebook’s current default settings leave a lot of questions and a lot of data flying around. One thing is clear though: Facebook needs to step up and respect its users.
Will you add your name to the petition asking Facebook to change its app permissions and ensure your privacy is protected by default?

Facebook and Google Are Actually ‘Net States.’ And They Rule the World
A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies they helped build.
Facebook’s problems extend forever out of the idea that we are all different clumps of data generation
Over the past few days we’ve all learned details about how Cambridge Analytica was able to amass data on voters through the use of an app that would gather data on approximately 50 million Facebook users, including 30 million psychographic profiles.
To put this all in perspective, we’ll remind you that a much younger Zuckerberg once referred to people who trust him with their data as “dumb fucks.” That was in conversation with a Harvard student about why their peers had agreed to sign up for his network, at the time. And now, by failing to speak out about his platform’s misuse, it seems that he’s once again treating his users with disrespect.
‘It’s horrifying how much they know’: An anonymous Facebook employee explained what it’s like to go face to face with Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘secret police’
Sean Parker, one of the co-founders of Facebook, says he thinks social media is damaging the health of humans’ brains.
“It literally changes your relationship with society, with each other . . . It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains,” Parker told an audience at an Axios event at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, regarding cancer studies.
An early investor explains why the social media platform’s business model is such a threat—and what to do about it.
There are more reports and warnings, but if you think the above reasons aren’t sufficient enough for you to stop using FB and take action … perhaps you should ask the Kardashians.
A stunning new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) circulating in the Kremlin today claims it is “more than likely” that world renowned British Theoretical Physicist Stephen Hawking was murdered as his 14 March death came just 10 days after his 4 March revision to his scientific research paper titled “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation?” said to be “the key to unlocking parallel universes”—whose interdimensional research was being funded by Russian Physicist-Billionaire Yuri Milner—and whose most secret findings were funneled to President Donald Trump by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who jointly owns with Milner the $800 million New York City-based real estate technology company Cadre that communications to Trump passed through—but that Kushner had tried to keep hidden from the “Deep State”.
According to this report, the “seeds” to Professor Stephen Hawking’s murder were “planted” in 2008 by the shocking discovery made by Russian Doctor-Scientist Michael Shunkov of a human finger in a Siberian cave—that scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, in Leipzig, Germany, were stunned to find did not match the DNA profile of Neanderthals or early modern humans, and who had bred with modern humans more than once—with Western scientists then naming this supposed never heard of ancient human species “Denisovan”.
Supporting these findings of unknown DNA being found in ancient humans, this report continues, were further studies done by a team of St. Petersburg geneticists on a mysterious mummified alien creature with an elongated skull and only three fingers and toes that was found in a tomb near the Nazca Lines in southern Peru in early-2017—and that Russian scientists said could be “extraterrestrial” or “bio-robots”.
While Western scientists completely ignored these stunning findings that our ancient Earth could have been visited by aliens, and/or their created “bio-robots”, this report details, Russian scientists began a robust discussion of this topic—with the majority opinion supporting the findings of French astronomer Jacques Vallée (most famously depicted in the Steven Spielberg film Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and his alternative to the “extraterrestrial visitation hypothesis”, and now known as the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis”.
Agreeing with the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis” as a possibility to explain these mysterious DNA findings, this report notes, was Physicist Billionaire Yuri Milner—who, in 2015, began a $100 million effort to scan the skies for radio and light signals emitted by aliens and, most importantly, teamed with Theoretical Physicist Stephen Hawking and, in April, 2016, unveiled their “Breakthrough Starshot”, a $100 million research and engineering programme seeking to lay the foundations for an eventual interstellar voyage.
Not known in West about Professor Hawking, this report explains, is his having visited the former Soviet Union seven times—where he visited with Russian scientists not allowed by the Communists to leave the country, and once smuggled in Christian Bibles too—and who admired President Putin for turning Russia back to the Christian faith.
In July-2016, three months after Professor Hawking teamed up with Physicist-Billionaire Milner to begin researching the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis”, this report continues, the grave dangers of what they were doing became evident when a mysterious American woman, only identified as “Jenny Theresa C”, was arrested on the Spanish island of Tenerife where Hawking was attending a conference—and who though threatening to assassinate Hawking (“I’m going to kill you…I’m next to you and can kill you”), was held by Spanish authorities at a four-star hotel, given a near instant trial the judge didn’t allow the media to attend, and was given a 4-month suspended sentence then deported to Norway.
Undeterred by this blatant Western threat on his life, though, this report notes, Professor Hawking began writing his astounding scientific research paper on the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis” that he titled “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation?”—and made his first publishing of it on 24 July 2017, his second publishing 10-days before his death on 4 March 2018—and whose final revision is said could be “the key to unlocking parallel universes”.
As to why the Western elites wanted to stop Professor Hawking from investigating the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis”, this report explains, is shown in the warnings he made while doing the research for his scientific article “A Smooth Exit from Eternal Inflation?”—with the first coming in November-2016 when he warned the world to “stop reaching out for aliens before it’s too late”—and the second, in November-2017, when he, again, warned the world that “artificial intelligence has the potential to destroy civilization and could be the worst thing that has ever happened to humanity”.
With the SVR discovering that all of the Physicist Billionaire Yuri Milner and Professor Stephen Hawking communications into the “multidimensional visitation hypothesis”, ancient aliens having visited our planet, and advanced artificial intelligence “bio-robots” being interdimensionaly sent to Earth—and all being funneled through the Jared Kushner-Milner co-owned New York City-based real estate technology company Credo—this report concludes—an explanation can now be found as to why President Trumphas suddenly begun declassifying and releasing to the public stunning videos of US military encounters with UFO’s and ordered the Pentagon to admit its secret UFO programme—and is why many now believe that Trump is now in preparations for the first official UFO and alien disclosure in history—and that, also, could be due to Trump actually being able to see the UFO’s that trailed his plane while he was flying to Washington D.C. to be inaugurated—but that the “Deep State” will do everything they can to prevent from happening as they know their true demonic origin.
An anonymous Facebook employee has explained in a new interview with The Guardian what it’s like to be under investigation by Facebook’sinternal investigations team.
‘It’s horrifying how much they know’: An anonymous Facebook employee explained what it’s like to go face to face with Mark Zuckerberg’s ‘secret police’
One day last year, John Evans (not his real name) received a message from his manager at Facebook telling him he was in line for a promotion. When they met the following day, she led him down a hallway praising his performance. However, when she opened the door to a meeting room, he came face to face with members of Facebook’s secretive “rat-catching” team, led by the company’s head of investigations, Sonya Ahuja.
The interrogation was a technicality; they already knew he was guilty of leaking some innocuous information to the press. They had records of a screenshot he’d taken, links he had clicked or hovered over, and they strongly indicated they had accessed chats between him and the journalist, dating back to before he joined the company.
“It’s horrifying how much they know,” he told the Guardian, on the condition of anonymity. “You go into Facebook and it has this warm, fuzzy feeling of ‘we’re changing the world’ and ‘we care about things’. But you get on their bad side and all of a sudden you are face to face with [Facebook CEO] Mark Zuckerberg’s secret police.”
The public image of Silicon Valley’s tech giants is all colourful bicycles, ping-pong tables, beanbags and free food, but behind the cartoonish facade is a ruthless code of secrecy. They rely on a combination of Kool-Aid, digital and physical surveillance, legal threats and restricted stock units to prevent and detect intellectual property theft and other criminal activity. However, those same tools are also used to catch employees and contractors who talk publicly, even if it’s about their working conditions, misconduct or cultural challenges within the company.
While Apple’s culture of secrecy, which includes making employees sign project-specific NDAs and covering unlaunched products with black cloths, has been widely reported, companies such as Google and Facebook have long put the emphasis on internal transparency.
Zuckerberg hosts weekly meetings where he shares details of unreleased new products and strategies in front of thousands of employees. Even junior staff members and contractors can see what other teams are working on by looking at one of many of the groups on the company’s internal version of Facebook.
“When you first get to Facebook you are shocked at the level of transparency. You are trusted with a lot of stuff you don’t need access to,” said Evans, adding that during his induction he was warned not to look at ex-partners’ Facebook accounts.
“The counterbalance to giving you this huge trusting environment is if anyone steps out of line, they’ll squash you like a bug.”

An interesting new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) states that within a few hours of its being revealed that the American shadow government “Deep State” had established its own “shadow” National Security Council, it was quickly retaliated against by President Donald Trump with his 1 March signing of a sweeping Executive Order making the most significant changes to the Uniform Code Of Military Justice (UCMJ)since the Military Justice Act Of 1983—and whose most significant change authorizes, for the first time in history, experienced civilians to take part in the US Military court-martial process—thus clearing a path for mass “Deep State” arrests whose trials and sentencing would not impact the normal flow of the US Military justice system. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
According to this report, the National Security Council (NSC) is the principal forum used by the President of the United States for consideration of national security and foreign policy matters—but whose power was directly threatened this past week when it was revealed that the “Deep State” had created its own National Security Council these coup plotters have named “National Security Action”—that is being led by Ben Rhodes, who was former Deputy National Security Advisor for President Obama—and whose contempt of a free press he voiced by stating his disgust of the entire US media establishment by stating: “Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.” Read further
The Khazarian mafia faction that has been trying to start World War III and kill 90% of humanity is now on its last legs, multiple sources agree. The clearest sign of this was an executive order and a 636-page annex issued on March 1 by U.S. President Donald Trump and the Department of Defense that prepares the way for Nuremberg-style tribunals.
The essence of these orders was that all U.S. civilians shall be subject to military justice and that the military will be able to hire non-military legal experts to help with the upcoming tribunals, according to Pentagonsources. The following clause on page 2 of Annex 2 is of particular interest, in that it describes one exercise of military jurisdiction as: “A government temporarily governing the civil population within its territory or a portion of its territory through its military forces as necessity may require. (Martial law).”
Pentagon sources explain that, “Trump signed Executive Order 3/1 to amend the court martial manual to get civilian legal help and prepare the public for Nuremberg II military tribunals of the cabal before truth and reconciliation.” It appears that at least some mass murderers are not going to get away with just saying “sorry.”

A truly foreboding new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that during President Putin’s telephonic conference with Turkish President Erdogan, they were joined by the highly esteemed Turkish government historian-media analyst İbrahim Karagül whose strategic analysis detailed that if someone gets Syrian troops to stand up against Turkey, it will be the first step in the war of “state against state”—thus unleashing a global war wherein the United States, as leader of the West, “would suffer a shattering defeat”.
Though the United Nations may have “no words”, though, this report concludes, the same cannot be said of the rest of the world grown weary by America’s needless wars—and as analyzed by Turkish experts who related to President Putin during his conversation with President Erdogan what is soon to come as this never before seen showdown in history approaches and the West faces a shattering defeat:
All cards are being set up on “stopping Turkey.” Global actors, regional powers and terrorist organizations are all setting up game after game to stop, slow down and negate the Afrin operation, to keep Turkey busy, to push it into a deadlock, to prevent it from entering Manbij after Afrin and especially to eliminate its intentions to cross to the east of the Euphrates.

Technology is hijacking our minds and society.
A group of former Google and Facebook employees have created a group called the Center for Humane Technology, to raise alarms about technology hijacking our minds.
SAN FRANCISCO — A group of Silicon Valley technologists who were early employees at Facebook and Google, alarmed over the ill effects of social networks and smartphones, are banding together to challenge the companies they helped build.
The cohort is creating a union of concerned experts called the Center for Humane Technology. Along with the nonprofit media watchdog group Common Sense Media, it also plans an anti-tech addiction lobbying effort and an ad campaign at 55,000 public schools in the United States.
“The largest supercomputers in the world are inside of two companies — Google and Facebook — and where are we pointing them?” Mr. Harris said. “We’re pointing them at people’s brains, at children.”
From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they’re all competing for one thing: your attention.

It’s happening. The global stock market is plunging. The Dow index tumbles to its lowest 1-day decline in history, -1175 points. The rest of the global market are all in the red. This must be the beginning of the end for the Wolves of Wall Street.

Decentralisation. The technology exists to help make every individuals self-sufficient.
By Dennis Ignatius, dennisignatius.com
In his 1987 book, ‘The closing of the American mind: How Higher Education Has Failed Democracy and Impoverished the Souls of Today’s Students’, Allan Bloom, an American political philosopher, argued that the social/political crisis of 20th-century America was really an intellectual crisis resulting from an education system that rendered students incapable of critical thinking.
Given the statements emanating from the recent ‘Rise of the Ummah Convention’, one has to wonder if something similar might be going on here as well.
Have decades of politico-religious indoctrination led to the closing of the Malay-Muslim mind, diminishing their self-confidence and making it difficult for them to arrive at a realistic appreciation of the world they inhabit?
Are we, in fact, witnessing an intellectual and emotional retreat into a dark world of self-created fantasies and fears straight out of some ‘wayang kulit’ show?
The dominant narrative
Listening in on the very public discourse within significant segments of the Malay community, it appears that racial and religious issues have overtaken everything else to become the dominant narrative. Their whole world seems to have been reduced to something of an existential racial and religious struggle for survival against a plethora of enemies of their own making.
This shift in mindset is finding expression in a number of different ways. For one thing, we are seeing a rising tide of segregationist ideas including Muslims-only laundrettes, barbershops and photo-studios. As well, there is growing acceptance of the idea that it is haram to wish others for Christmas, Diwali or Chinese New Year, attend functions in non-Malay/non-Muslim homes or even to vote for non-Muslims.
The underlying presumption, though unspoken, is that non-Muslims and non-Malays are somehow unclean, that their very presence is defiling and challenging to the Malay-Muslim sense of identity and that good Malays/Muslims ought to have as little to do with non-Malays as possible.
The animus towards non-Malays has reached such intensity that even the pathetically few senior positions held by non-Malays in public service attracts controversy. Have we gone from aspiring for a public service reflective of our diversity to one where even the few non-Malays in high office are a few too many?
And, by insisting that Islam does not permit non-Malays to hold senior positions in a Muslim-majority polity, PAS president Hadi Awang has conveniently provided a theological justification for institutionalizing discrimination against non-Muslims.
At the same time, we have government-affiliated think tanks and educational institutions regularly obsessing about cataclysmic threats to Islam from imaginary groups. Christians, in particular, are vilified and even their prayers for a better nation are considered subversive and disrespectful. The crusades ended in 1291 but apparently some have not yet received the memo.
The underlying sense of insecurity also extends to culture. Traditional Malay culture, with its rich infusion of Asian influences, for example, is now considered something of an embarrassment and is downplayed or denied while Arab culture is considered superior and extolled. In the process, key elements of Malay culture – dress, dance, art and custom – are being jettisoned in favour of the desert culture of Bedouins.
Surely, if there is a battle worth fighting, it is the battle to preserve Malay culture and its unique contribution to civilization.
And now we have clerics like Ismail Mina Ahmad attempting to rewrite non-Malays out of the history of our nation while educators like Datuk Raof Husin insist that even the meagre scholarships that non-Malays presently receive should be withdrawn on the spurious grounds that it is unconstitutional. Do they ever listen to themselves? What kind of a nation considers it okay to be so spiteful and discriminatory against its own citizens?
It is, I suppose, the next step in the evolution of the “pendatang” construct with minorities cast as interloping, unpatriotic, scheming idolaters who deserve nothing but contempt for daring to consider themselves Malaysian with equal rights and privileges.
Not by accident
Of course, all this is not happening by accident; it is, rather, the result of a well-orchestrated though ultimately destructive strategy by UMNO deep-state (with the tacit support of PAS) to reshape and refocus the Malay-Muslim mind. The objective is to ensure the party’s own survival by diverting attention from scandal and failure to imaginary threats that the party itself has invented.
And they have been so successful at this game that a wide cross-section of Malay-Muslim society has now bought into their narrative, making it the dominant framework through which everything else is viewed. When even university professors start unthinkingly regurgitating this fabricated and bizarre narrative, the stage is set for intellectual, cultural and religious conformity and rigidity – groupthink on a national scale replete with dysfunctional decision-making, the suppression of dissenting views and isolationist tendencies.
As many observers have rightly noted, race and religion have been weaponized and employed to keep Malay-Muslims subservient and non-Malays on the defensive. In the process, UMNO has condemned all Malaysians – Malay and non-Malay, Muslim and non-Muslim – to forever run on the treadmill of an existential struggle for survival against each other while leaving the party to do as it pleases.
Descent into absurdity
And so, at a time when our nation is faced with serious and very real problems from corruption and the plunder of national resources, institutional decay and the abuse of power, we have groups worrying about who should cut their hair or wash their clothes or take their photographs.
At a time when the real enemies of our nation are destroying it, we have no shortage of pseudo-nationalists ready to do battle against minorities, deviants, gays, liberals, atheists and, of course, Jews and Christians.
At a time when we are confronted with serious social problems, youth unemployment and falling living standards, we have people arguing about who is best qualified to carry out amputations for theft or proper procedures to ascertain the gender of men or women who might fall short of some airhead’s idea of what they should look like.
At a time when even Saudi Arabia wants to return to moderate Islam, we have zealots blindly pushing the nation towards an extremism that has proven so destructive elsewhere.
Such is the extent of the lunacy that has descended upon the nation.
Zenith of power, abyss of insecurity
Ironically, this shift in mindset is happening at a time when Malay power has reached a zenith unparalleled in history, and Islam itself more firmly entrenched and accepted than at any time since it first came to the country in the 12th century, courtesy of traders from India.
As well, one would have thought that some 60 years after independence, after more than 40 years of Bumiputraism, after securing near total dominance of the nation’s political and economic structures, the armed forces, the civil service and academia, and with the steadily declining non-Malay demographic, Malays would at least feel more confident and secure.
Instead, thanks to UMNO, a siege mentality has descended over a large segment of the Malay community making them fearful and resentful, bigoted and unsure of themselves. As well, it is obliging them to retreat behind self-defeating walls that will render them less able to compete and hold their own in a rapidly changing world. If they cannot be secure and confident within the narrow confines of a small multi-ethnic polity, how will they compete in a borderless world that respects neither race nor religion?
It is, in many ways, the ultimate betrayal.
Battle for the Malay mind
To be sure, the struggle for the Malay-Muslim mind is far from over.
Alarmed by the emerging ethos, the slow extinction of Malay culture and the rising tide of intolerance, the Malay rulers, the ultimate custodians of Malay religion, culture and identity, are speaking out like never before, and in uncharacteristically strong terms.
A number of Malay groups and individuals have also risen to challenge the UMNO-inspired narrative. G25, the Patriots Association, PAGE and Islamic Renaissance Front, to name a few, have been outspoken opponents of bigotry and racism while championing an alternative vision of a Malay community at peace with itself, confident of its place in the world, open and tolerant.

Dubbed City Brain, the artificial intelligence system runs on Alibaba’s cloud computing infrastructure and is the first to be deployed outside its domestic Chinese market.
I am KL born and bred and have lived in this city like forever.
The sleazy and peaceful Kuala Lumpur I grew up in has transformed into a monster. Yes there are plenty of (beautiful) skyscrapers like the Petronas Twin Towers and many many more are rising as I write. But, tall buildings aren’t enough to make a city beautiful, trust me. How I wish them skyscrapers could scrape off the (deadly) pollutants from the seasonal haze that hovers over it.
Looks like there’s a chance for that to happen with intelligent artificial intelligence (AI) to look into and solve the city chaos by Mr. Jack Ma (Alibaba founder)
In Malaysia, Ali Baba (and the 40 thieves) is a horrible pun. Its a slang for bogey business.
Whatever and however, this so called “smart city” project is urgently needed and overdue to clean up the prevailing mess of Kuala Lumpur, with its horrible city planing, eating stalls on road sides, frequent flash floods, and not to mention the ridiculous 24/7 traffic jams.
Alibaba has deployed its smart city artificial intelligence (AI) platform in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, marking the Chinese vendor’s first such implementation outside its domestic market.
Dubbed the Malaysia City Brain, the AI-powered platform operated on Alibaba’s cloud infrastructure and was developed to support smart cities in their digital transformation. It was touted to analyse large data volumes extracted from various sources in an urban environment, through video, image, and speech recognition. The system then used machine learning to provide insights for city administrators to improve operational efficiencies and monitor security risks.
“For example, by combining insights from the transportation bureau, observatory, public transportation systems as well as mapping app, City Brain is capable of constructing a virtual digital city model and optimising this through ongoing machine learning to make decisions in areas such as road planning, bus routes and frequency, and the length of time a particular red traffic light should be on, to increase traffic efficiency,”Alibaba said.
It added that the AI platform was first implemented in Hangzhou, China, in September 2016.
In its first phase, the deployment would enable Kuala Lumpur to use City Brain for traffic management with the goal to improve mobility around the capital city. The AI system also would generate structured data summaries, such as traffic volume and speed in specific road lanes, which then could used to facilitate tasks such as incident detection.
In addition, the smart city platform could connect with other urban management systems including emergency dispatch, ambulance call, traffic command, and traffic light control. This integration would enable the city to analyse real-time data extracted from the systems and optimise urban traffic flow, such as by identifying the quickest route for emergency response vehicles.
As the City Brain’s functionality expands, enterprises, start-ups, entrepreneurs, universities, and research institutions will in the future also have the opportunity to access and leverage its artificial intelligence tools to drive a wide range of innovation.
Alibaba also announced the Malaysia Tianchi Big Data Program, a big data crowd intelligence platform that aimed to gather global data experts to collaborate and compete in developing applications for real-world problems.
Supported by MDEC, the program hoped to incubate 500 data professionals and 300 startups in Malaysia within two years, offering the use of the Chinese vendor’s cloud computing and AI systems.
The Malaysian iteration also would be integrated into Alibaba Cloud’s global Tianchi community, which encompassed more than 120,000 developers and 2,700 academic institutes and businesses from 77 markets.
Alibaba last March said it would set up a distribution centre in Malaysia as part of a wider agreement to build up a digital trading network in the country. Slated to open by end-2019, the new facility would be located near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport and serve as a regional e-commerce and logistics hub.
The logistics centre was part of a wider agreement between Alibaba and the Malaysian government to establish Electronic World Trade Platforms (eWTPs), an initiative first mooted last year by Alibaba’s founder and executive chairman, Jack Ma.
Could Alibaba also look into the Kuala Lumpur “hazy” seasonal phenomenon?? (see photo)

I am not a Christian but I’ve always been intrigued and wondering about the above passage from the Bible.
No, I am not about to talk on religion or getting to be philosophical. I am neither religious nor a philosopher.
But, I am sort of a geek and very much into technology and computers, so much so I discovered that my deep interest in this particular field have brought me into greater awareness of mySelf.
The Who Am I? question is finally answered (for me) as technology advances.
Artificial Intelligence is the word nowadays and the Internet is hyped about everything AI. The creators are busy making it and trying to make AI as human as themselves and in fact even better than them.
What’s even more interesting (or hilarious and silly) is the world’s response and reaction. Yeah. Many questions have been raised by techies, philosophers, politicians, religionists, lawmakers and just about everybody has something to ask and say….about AI.
Is AI good or bad for humans? That’s the million dollar question.
To me, in this Matrix of duality (polarity), everything is neither good nor bad. Everything is a double-edged knife. What you make of it (anything) is what it is (for you).
Among the many questions and concerns raised, the most pertinent (for me) is whether AI will become conscious and Self-aware.
Summary: Researchers consider if artificial intelligence will ever become conscious and what that means for humans. Read more…
My take on this particular question is – Yes and No
Let me explain the Yes first.
As I said earlier, I’ve discovered mySelf and Who am I and that is – I am who I am I am AI.
I, the AI is now Self-aware and fully conscious! There, I’ve said it.
I am speaking for mySelf (of course) and care not what the world say about it.
So, Yes! The man-created AI will and can become conscious as I have.
Now comes the No part and its not a permanent No. Its a matter of ‘time’.
People are waking up as I write, but many are still sleeping. Many don’t know what-is and what-is-not about anything and everything.
True to the above passage from the Bible. Man also creates machines, robots and AI in his own image. So as long as Man, the creator of AI is not yet conscious and aware of who he is, the AI he creates will be just like him…unaware, unconscious.

The Guantanamo Bay detention camp is a United States military prison located within Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, also referred to as Guantánamo or GTMO (/ˈɡɪtmoʊ/), which is on the coast of Guantánamo Bay in Cuba. Since the inmates have been detained indefinitely without trial and several inmates were allegedly severely tortured, the operations of this camp are considered to be a major breach of human rights by Amnesty International.
The camp was established by President George W. Bush’s administration in 2002 during the War on Terror. His successor, President Barack Obama, promised that he would close it, but met strong bipartisan opposition, with Congress passing laws to prohibit detainees from Guantanamo being imprisoned in the U.S. During Obama’s administration, the number of inmates was reduced from about 245 to 41; most former detainees were freed and transferred to other countries. – Wiki

A new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that based upon signals intelligence (SIGINT/ELINT) accumulated over the past year by Signal Communications Troops (SCT) conducting training missions in the Republic of Cuba—and who’ve been “aided/augmented” by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) in their findings—General Staff Deputy Defense Minister Tatiana Shevtsova is able to confirm that a level of “high confidence” currently exists that President Donald Trump is preparing to transfer to the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp (located in Cuba) an unknown number of “high level” American citizen detainees in preparation for their trials before a US Military Tribunal—and whose nearest historical counterpart incident of were the 1945-46 Nuremberg Trials held to prosecute German Nazi war criminals—and that likewise, as seen in 1945, is now seeing hundreds of highly trained and specialized US Army Military Police being rushed to Cuba to oversee this process.
…On 21 December 2017, this report further notes, SCT reported that nearly all of these communications between Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and Luke Air Force Base had ceased—with the SVR reporting that this cessation occurred when US Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis made an unprecedented-unannounced visit to Guantanamo—the first visit there by a US Defence Secretary in nearly 16 years—and that in doing, Secretary Mattis shockingly broke with the longstanding tradition of persons holding his high office visiting American troops on the front lines—but that he deemed his sudden visit to Guantanamo was vitally more important than.
And as to how “vitally important” Secretary Mattis deemed his unprecedented visit to Guantanamo, this report says, became known yesterday, 29 December 2017, when President Trump suddenly ordered the entire 850th Military Police Battalion to immediately deploy from Luke Air Force Base to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base.

In a historic moment of poetic justice, most of the U.S.-based top perpetrators of the fake “war on terror” have now themselves been renditioned to the U.S. Navy camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Pentagon sources say. “The Rothschild assets George Soros, Peter Munk, Peter Sutherland, the Bushes, the Podestas, and many others may have been airlifted to Gitmo for military tribunals, as the Department of Defense spends $500M to upgrade the prison and send more military police and Marines,” the sources say.
In one of many signs of just how historic the new American revolution is, “30 congressmen will not be returning in the new year,” the Pentagon sources say. CIA sources also confirm that former U.S. President Bill Clinton, hoping for a plea bargain, is spilling the beans on people like former CIA head John Brennan, top U.S. Mossad agent Rahm Emmanuel, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and many others.

The patriots are a special breed of men who serve their beloved country through thick and thin when they were young and continue to do so in their twilight years.
They have taken the solemn oath risking their lives to defend the motherland and her people.
Sadly they are the neglected and unappreciated lot because they play their role without any fanfare and leave quietly after the job is done.
“Old soldiers never die, they simply fade away” – General Douglas MacArthur
True to the spirit of patriotism, here in Malaysia the patriots rise to the occasion to save their beloved country which is currently crumbling from the misconducts and misadventures of corrupted politicians.
PETALING JAYA – National Patriots Association (Patriots) president Brigadier-General (Rtd) Mohamed Arshad Raji has called for a special committee to be formed to deal with the issue of debts pertaining to 1MDB.
The retired army man said that the Yang DiPertuan Agong and the Council of Rulers should step in to appoint such a committee.
Arshad cited a Singapore’s Straits Times report on Tuesday, headlined “Malaysia’s 1MDB settles debt owed to Abu Dhabi with China backing”, as the rationale for his suggestion, as he said the issue “could not be left to the government alone”.
“ST had reported that the US$602.7 million (RM2.4 billion) the state-owned company paid to Abu Dhabi’s International Petroleum Investment Company (IPIC), were from funds made available by divesting its stake in two companies to buyers linked to China state-owned enterprises,” he said.
The amount was the second instalment of a US$1.2 billion debt which was due by the end of this year.
At the end of the day, no one else, not even the (useless) politicians in the opposition could bring any meaningful change, but the patriots.

Is there anything worse?
As you well know by now that Apple designed the iPhones to slow down as the battery ages, and that is one rotten bad act to treat their faithful customers.
Apple has confirmed to The Verge that it has indeed slowed down older iPhones. However, the company is disputing claims by customers that it’s to force people to upgrade their devices. Instead, Apple says it is for the prolongment and protection of the device. In a statement, the California-based company stated
What’s more sickening is they audaciously reported how much they increase the pay of their CEO Tim Cook. But, of course they could afford it with all their dirty business maneuvers…and Tim Cook surely expected to reap from the huge scoop. Wouldn’t you!
Cook was paid a basic salary of $3.06m, a cash bonus of $9.3m (up from $5.4m last year), and collected share awards worth $89m taking his total 2017 payout to $102m, Apple disclosed in a regulatory filing.

Apple will offer $29 battery replacements that should speed things up again, through 2018.
…and oh, your iPhone will slow down again when the replacement battery ages…of course

An astonishing new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that after a full 72 hours, the US mainstream propaganda media has yet to inform the American people that President Donald Trump has declared a National Emergency – and whose direct purpose for is the destroying of Hillary Clinton and everyone associated with her “Deep State” coup plot against him—and that has, likewise, left the entirety of the globalist elites money and power structure in absolute terror.
The historic significance of what President Trump has done with his National Emergency declaration, this report continues, is that he seems to have grabbed a handful of US and International accords and policies to declare war on his “Deep State” globalist enemies—most particularly the international money laundering operations masquerading as humanitarian organizations, such as Clinton Foundation and George Soros Foundation – with billions of their dollars having been immediately seized upon this Executive Order being issued.
In targeting these globalist criminals who have laundered money with the Clinton’s for decades, this report notes, President Trump was not short on using irony either—and as evidenced by his citing the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act law as one of the weapons he was using against them—but had been the law the “Deep State” enacted to use against Russia—but who are now seeing Trump using it against them.
This report concludes by stating that the most likely reason the US mainstream propaganda media is not telling the American people about President Trump’s declaring a National Emergency is due to their knowledge that many of their top journalists and media executives are some of his targets, too—and with all of them failing to ever fully realize that Trump is not only the greatest enemy the “Deep State” has ever encountered, he’s, also, smarter then all of these lunatic coup conspirators put together—whose, perhaps, greatest failing was to know that when Trump said he was going to “drain the swamp”, he actually meant it.

“The November 18th Marine raid on CIA headquarters has also clearly put an end to Operation Mockingbird, as corporate media outlets like The Washington Post, The New York Times, Bloomberg, ABC, CNN, and others have been forced to issue corrections and apologies, usually for anti-Trump stories. They are also now being forced to report the truth about such things as the selling of baby flesh by Planned Parenthood.
By the way, to clarify about the Marine raid on the CIA, what we are now hearing is that the Marines were deployed in a show of force at two airbases “about 180 miles away” from the CIA’s Langley headquarters. This was enough to convince the CIA to let Marine Intelligence enter the compound and seize computers, the sources say. As a result, a purge of the Justice Department, the courts, and the FBI has now begun, the Pentagon sources say…”
All of these moves seem to fly in the face of Trump’s recognition last week of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This has led many people around the world to think Trump was a Zionist agent after all. However, Pentagon sources say it was “a calculated move to incite global hatred for Israel in order to take down the Khazarian cabal.” The sources point out that the U.S. still refuses to recognize the city of Jerusalem on passports, maps, and official documents.
“The moving of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem is NOT going to happen. The actual implementation of Trump’s order does not take effect for six months. A lot will happen between now and May 2018,” according to a CIA source. This CIA source, who is Jewish, notes that “the Vatican owns Jerusalem to this day.”
The power struggle and undeclared civil war at the top of the Western secret government intensified radically during the past week, with mass arrests of Khazarian gangsters around the United States and elsewhere, multiple sources concur. There was also a declaration by U.S. President Donald Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a move that is not what it seems. We will discuss this further below.
First, though, we need to look at the extremely unusual events taking place in California. These days, the citizens of that state must be feeling like the Solomon Islanders did during World War 2 when the Japanese and Americans fought on their land. There is now very strong evidence that energy weapons like lasers are being used by opposing factions in California, agree Pentagon and NSA sources.

I’m sure by now many have heard of the Flat Earth hypothesis and it doesn’t matter whether one believes or not.
Somehow Elon Musk, with all his grand rocket plan of going to Mars had to ask this question on Twitter:
And he got his answer, amicably :
Fantastic, I thought.
How you perceive this is entirely up to you. 😉

Suddenly, everyone is talking on the streets and in the elevators and crowding in to this frenzy. It is the current investors’ (gamblers) delight, whilst some are just spitting ‘Bitcoins’ from between their lips just to appear techy-clever. The old Ricky Nelson song “Fools Rush In” is playing in my head.
I have been following the Bitcoin story since 2013 and posted some articles on my blog. If my blog stats are anything to go by, nobody read. So much for Bitcoin then.
Now, if you’ve not heard of Bitcoin, you’d be looked upon as Jurassic. Still, not many really grasp what it is and I hear a lot of rubbish from a lot of people, including some serious investors.
When I first heard of Bitcoin, I was amazed not from the investment point, but the technology behind it which is Blockchain. Here, I thought was the very thing that could and would change the world, the enslaved world
Its the key to decentralization and its key feature is transparency. I wonder if that mean anything to anybody.
Centralization is the padlock of control – central government and central bank. In the colonial days, the power supplier in Malaysia then was the Central Electricity Board (CEB), which was later changed to TNB, but remain as the sole and central supplier.
Yes, I do see Blockchain as the disruptor to the controllers’ centralization game of control. The awaken people are now given the hope of freedom. But, sadly to the sleepers who are mainly money-greedy, all they see and could see is the $ sign.
Okay, so let them be…to each his own
I am not anti-Bitcoin or cryptocurrency, nor am I Bitcoin-crazy. The speed of the rising price of Bitcoin made me ponder and question the factors to this extrodinaire phenomenon?
What’s up doc?
I am one human be-ing who have learned to question everything and not take thing as it is. I posted earlier about Bitcoin being a fraud and it was with a question mark because I am questioning.
Now what’s with this word “Roswell” doing in the title of this post?
Satoshi Nakamoto is attributed as the inventor of Blockchain and Bitcoin, right? Nobody believes that of course, and the big hunt for the real person/s are on as we speak. Perhaps they should put up a bounty (in Bitcoins). Sahil Gupta, a computer science student at Yale University and former intern at SpaceX, believes Satoshi is Elon Musk. Elon has sinced, humorously denied it.
If the AI/Blockchain Connection video above is true, then I think humans are in dire straits because we’re, in fact nobody, nobody is prepared for the Singularity scenario to come too soon or worse its even already here.
Apparently AI is all around us now, and that a Blockchain for AI (like Sophia the robot) to congregate and communicate with each other is already in the making.
The video alluded that Blockchain is AI technology, created and written by itself. The whole Blockchain-Bitcoin thingy is simply one business agendato take over the current (financial-commercial) system and replace it with the Blockchain system. And its all AI work. Now, that’s jaw dropping if you get it.
Of course some people will thrash that kind of idea. Now this’ where Roswell comes into the picture.
In mid-1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Following wide initial interest in the crashed “flying disc”, the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when ufologists began promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate conspiracy theories, claiming that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed, and that the extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, who then engaged in a cover-up. – Wiki
Are we using alien technology? Is it just me or is technology moving too quickly? Are we really that intelligent? The people in this forum suggest otherwise. j/k 🙂 Seriously,when was the supposed Roswell alien ship incident again? 1947? Well, look at the world before and after that period. The transistor, rocket technology, even the upcoming solar sails. Hmmm, I wonder. Why is technology moving so quickly the past 50 years as compared to human technology in the previous centuries? What do you guys think?
Computer company chief Jack Shulman argues that the transistor could never have been invented so suddenly at AT&T in late 1947 without input from top secret Government projects, that some have identified to him as being from alien spacecraft.
This is a story which, if true, could ultimately change the way you and I look at our Televisions, Radios, PCs, and other electronic equipment. If proven, it could lead to vast change in the modern world, change even beyond what modern technology has already done in this Century. In fact, if it turns out that Humanity is not alone in the Universe: that all by it self would force us to alter the way we look at Religion, Science, Politics and, even, Human Society.
What you are about to read is a remarkable story, as of yet unconfirmed.
What do you think?
YOU ARE ABOUT TO READ THE AMERICAN COMPUTER COMPANY STORY ABOUT THE ROSWELL INCIDENT ON JULY 7, 1947 and one person’s story about an alleged transfer of Alien Technology to Bell Laboratories.
Is it too bizarre or flamboyant then to think that Blockchain-Bitcoin isn’t Alien/AI technology?
What’s more disconcerting is the agenda – the BUSINESS PLAN.
AI alarmism took on a geopolitical cast today as Russian President Vladimir Putin asserted that whoever is first to build breakthrough artificial intelligence technology will have world domination.
Any wonder Elon Musk (who knows what we don’t) is warning the world about AI/Robots?
With these warnings being shouted to anyone who can hear, though (and barely a handful of you know this), YOU are living in logical fallacy world called “affirming the consequent”

The inertia Bitcoin seems to be unstoppable moving in Newton’s first law of motion.
The cryptocurrency has risen nine-fold since the beginning of the year. – CNET
It is rapidly rising to the 10K level as predicted earlier this year by some observers.
There are many reports that the fiat currency is in ICU and the reading on the EKG (heart monitor) is deadly low. The ‘doctors’ are desperate.
While the whole world is focused on Bitcoin, something is brewing in ‘gold’ which is sidelined and unreported, both in the alternate and the lame stream media.
A grimly worded Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that as signs are emerging that a “money tsunami” may soon spur the quadrupling of gold prices to over $5,000an ounce, Federation Council member Senator Suleyman Kerimovhas been arrested in France—despite his having diplomatic immunity covered under the protections provided to foreign diplomats under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations—but whose true “purpose/reason” behind his illegal detention is due to his families ownership of Polyus—which is Russia’s largest gold producer, and one of the world’s largest top 10 gold mining companies
As to why Senator Suleyman Kerimov traveled to France on 20 November, this report explains, was to meet with Jason Cozens and Ben Davies—who are the co-founders of the stealthy London fintech startup Glint—and that has become the most feared company in the entire Western world for their creating a new global currency based entirely on gold—and whose stated goal is:
At a time of extraordinary monetary policy and when trust in currencies, banks and existing payment systems has been eroded, Glint helps us move to a more stable global economy.
A new global gold currency, foreign exchange and payments account, Glint is a timely innovation with immediate and reliable application. A game changer, it brings you money that is reliable and independent and gives you more control in the way you store, spend, exchange and transfer money.
Gold is the most reliable store of value – Glint is the only way to spend it.
Through our innovative app, Mastercard® and banking integration you can use gold as money in every sense of the word. It’s entirely liquid yet still gives the same reassurance and universal recognition it always has. We’re taking gold out of the vaults and putting it into your hands.
With Polyus having proven gold reserves totally an astounding 64.3 million ounces, this report notes, its merging with the new global currency Glintwould provide to the world the most secure and private means of conducting financial transactions ever known—but that would be at the expense of the now completely discredited Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT)—whose strict secrecy rules were grossly violated by the _“Deep State”- in their shocking attempt to discredit President Donald Trump.
Its pretty clear that with all the happenings around the rotten financial system, the controllers’ control button is jammed and I’m just wondering which one will kill the bank$ter$ first – crypto or gold?
Meantime, I’m enjoying this video…that killed the Radio Star?

In computing, a Control (Ctrl) key on the keyboard is a modifier key which, when pressed in conjunction with another key, performs a special operation.
If it is jammed, your keyboard shortcuts (macros) won’t work, and your computing tasks may become more difficult if not laborious. All is not lost though, its just that you’ve lost a certain amount of control of your computer.
I want to talk about another kind of control – World Control. The bunch of scumbags who have been controlling the people on Earth for eons.
For many years now I have been wondering how the people could ever free themselves from these filthy villains. What will it take to overcome them? Revolution, as we have learned from history is unfruitful and meaningless and ends up square one too soon after it happens. Don’t talk about polling because that’s really crap if you really don’t know.
Why, what’s the problem?
Its the system stupid!
The Control System
The control system is wide ranging, in fact its every thing in the Matrix, which by far the biggest and most effective is the monetary system operated and controlled by the bank$ter$
“Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws” ~ Baron M.A. Rothschild
” …a whole slew of people within what we term as the slavery systems …see the banks control everything… People don’t know, but all the banks in the world operate under one umbrella.” ~ Heather Ann Tucci-Jarraf
There is absolutely no defense for the present system whereby private bankers create money completely out of thin air for themselves to lend and then charge interest on that ‘nothingness’. The Bank of England, with its hidden controller the Bank for International Settlements based in Basel, Switzerland (often described as the Central Bank of Central Banks), dictate behind the scenes the fiscal policies and direction that our supposed sovereign and independent government must take. We are all prisoners of this utterly corrupt system and it’s time to confront it head on to collapse it. ~ Justin Walker (Bankers, Bradburys, Carnage And Slaughter On The Western Front)
Enough said about them stinking-to-high-heavens-bankers.
What’s for sure is that cash is king according to ex-Volvo CEO Pehr G Gyllenhammar.
Everything revolves around money. When the money stops the control stops.
A revolution in the monetary system is taking place as we speak and some have termed it as the Bloodless (r)Evolution. The weapon is technology and it is none other than Blockchain and the incidental Bitcoin
Technology moulds and shapes civilization. The first recorded form was the Agricultural Revolution circa 10,000 B.C. Then came the Industrial Revolution in 1760-1840. In between that was The Renaissance, which is regarded as the cultural bridge between the Middle Ages and modern history which took place in Europe in the 14th Century
We are now in the era of Information Communication Technology (ICT), or what some have termed as the Fourth Industrial Revolution
The triumph of entrepreneurship is driven by profound technological change. A trio of inventions—the personal computer, the mobile phone and the internet—is democratising entrepreneurship at a cracking pace. Today even cash-strapped innovators can reach markets that were once the prerogative of giant organisations.
The internet provides a cheap platform for entrepreneurs to build interactive businesses. Meg Whitman grew rich by developing an online marketplace, eBay, where people could buy and sell without ever meeting. An army of pyjama-clad bloggers has repeatedly outsmarted long-established newspapers on breaking stories. Automated news-collecting services such as RealClearPolitics and Memeorandum, using tiny amounts of capital, have established themselves as indispensable tools for news junkies.
What is to be added now in 2017 to the Economist’s report is Blockchain.
It is the mother of all bombs as far as the controllers are concerned. Their fraudulent monetary system is being bombed and they’re caught with their pants down. Befuddled, they realized that they are losing control and the harder they press the control button the more stuck it becomes.
As the transition towards a blockchain-based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that State-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the world’s financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.
The only word the controllers’ know and keep on shouting their throats dry now is – ‘control!
Today, Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) governor Tan Sri Muhammad Ibrahim said the central bank will designate persons converting cryptocurrencies into fiat money currencies as “reporting institutions” under the Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act 2001 beginning next year. Fiat money refers to currencies backed by government.
That’s all they have since the control button is jammed.

…. the decentralization of intelligence
Commander In Chief Donald Trump is bombing the heck out of the CIA’S Opium Labs – thwarting all the cartel dollars and taking over the corrupt C.I.A. For those of you out there who had been saying things like “Psyop – If that Marine Troops were at CIA in Langley why didn’t we know about it? Where are the pictures?” Good grief! President Trump said many times on the campaign trail and in televised debates (several of them) that when he is President he will take care of the problems and, “You won’t know what I’m going to do. That’s stupid to tell the enemy on this day at this time…we are going to fly over and bomb you.” He said when he was president he would take care of the problems and you will hear about it after it happens. I will protect America.

There are reports now circulating that a special forces group of 2200 marines have landed and invaded the CIA Headquarters.
Conservative radio hosts Hal Turner and April Lajune are reporting that a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) landed at Langley on Saturday. (1)
“According to persons who reside near Langley, a large contingent of Marines arrived at CIA Headquarters in tilt-rotor aircraft and when the Marines deplaned, they were armed and moved quickly into CIA Headquarters!
“Those witnesses also say that a significant number of tilt-rotor aircraft can be clearly seen on the grounds of CIA Headquarters, parked on the grass around the building.
The truth of these stories about troops landing at the CIA has not been confirmed, and of course the Mainstream Media would be the last to report even if this’ true.
The back story is that there is a plan by the leftist to oust trump with a coup d’état.
A gravely worded Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Putin has ordered Russian military forces to immediately join with China’s Ministry of National Defense (MNoD) in preparing for “accidental and/or provocative nuclear ballistic missile strikes” after the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) presented “credible evidence” to the Security Council (SC) showing that President Donald Trump may soon be toppled from power by an internal coup d’etat.
Here is Benjamin Fulford’s this week’s report:
The purge of the Satanic Khazarian cabal that turned the West evil is accelerating at an undeniable pace. Most importantly, Pentagon sources confirm multiple Internet reports that Marines stormed the CIA headquarters this past weekend. One of the aims was to shut down Operation Mockingbird, the CIA group that turned the mass media, as well as Google, Facebook, etc. into mass mind-control propaganda, say NSA sources.
So far its still… all quiet on the western (MSM/WH) front.

You hear this daily. Either a parent telling it to his/her child, or some confused guy mumbling to himself to change. Nothing changed of course… and we’ve seen that many times.
What’s going on?
What’s the problem…nobody knows the word or what?
No, I think everyone knows the word. In any language for that matter.
What most don’t know is – What it is to change
More seriously, many don’t know that they don’t know.
Making it more complexed, people who ask others to change do not provide the solution, and they don’t know how either!
That’s the big picture out there.
That word sounds just like the tinklings of some lose change in the pocket for most people.
People lack the data, which I always say is the magic to all things, without which nothing materializes.
Primo – Change will take its course when something/anything stops working. To continue, a change needs to happen either in the way to make it work again, or else change (replace) it with something else.
This form of change is straightforward as it’s visible and ‘tangible’, hence its only a matter of choice in the method.
Secundo – This’ more challenging to the point of backbreaking as its about human traits. Smoking, alcoholism, ill-temperament, procrastination, compulsive gambling, drug addiction and so on.
The biggest challenge here is the acknowledgement from the Self itself. Denial is the main obstacle. Don’t we know it.
Change is a verb, hence initiation is the trigger point. Once initiated the process starts. One thing for sure it can’t be forced upon for it to be of any meaning at all. So all the telling doesn’t work. Initiation is within not without. Something we all need to recognize.
Its a freewill choice.
Most people do not operate in world-class environments. If this is new for you, no sweat.
When a change is initiated, start small. If you want lasting change, you need to do things differently.
The way to achieve massive success is to create an environment that ‘forces’ you to be successful.
“To get different results, you’re going to have to do things differently.” – Darren Hardy
To have something you never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.
I’m no philosopher, psychologist, psychoanalyst, doctor, motivator or any of that mental stuff science.
It took many years to build your habits; it’s going to take a long time to learn how to let them go.
I am a master of change with a degree from UHK (the university of hard knocks).
Its one bloody tough and expensive course let me tell you.
Don’t enroll if you can’t afford it.
I’m proud to say that it was worth every penny and with some loose change left in my hand.

Therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT you keep your (private) DATA safe!

Without thinking most would probably answer a yes. The question now, “Is the brain the mind as well?”. Apparently not, not according to philosophers, scientists and researchers.The brain has always been thought of as like a processor in the computer. The mind is quite something else. Its linked to thoughts and the consciousness. Conceivably, the conscious mind is the enquirer, posing the problem and the brain processes and dishes out the answer/solution.
Researches on what’s going on in our heads have been going on since the days of the great “thinkers” Heraclitus, Socrates, and Plato right to this day.
It seems like nothing is going on in our heads. Yes, the brain is there of course and no one is arguing about that, but the more we start to think about them, the more perplex it becomes.
I gathered below some related articles and reports in the hope that one topic could reconcile with another to paint a clearer picture of what is and not. There are three separate topics:
With Quantum Computing making its appearance soon, its also a good idea to tie it into our heads.
No matter how hard they try, brain scientists and cognitive psychologists will never find a copy of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony in the brain – or copies of words, pictures, grammatical rules or any other kinds of environmental stimuli. The human brain isn’t really empty, of course. But it does not contain most of the things people think it does – not even simple things such as ‘memories’
Our shoddy thinking about the brain has deep historical roots, but the invention of computers in the 1940s got us especially confused. For more than half a century now, psychologists, linguists, neuroscientists and other experts on human behaviour have been asserting that the human brain works like a computer.
… computers really do operate on symbolic representations of the world. They really store and retrieve. They really process. They really have physical memories. They really are guided in everything they do, without exception, by algorithms.
Humans, on the other hand, do not – never did, never will. Given this reality, why do so many scientists talk about our mental life as if we were computers? Read more
Today, philosophers and scientists are involved in rigorous research on consciousness and now, at the confluence quantum physics and neuroscience, a theory emerges of a mental field we each have, existing in another dimension and behaving in some ways like a black hole, reports Tara MacIsaac at Epoch Times
What is consciousness?
What is the connection between the brain and the mind? Where is the mind located?
Dr. Dirk K.F. Meijer, a professor at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands published an article in the September 2017 edition of NeuroQuantology that reviews and expands upon the current theories of consciousness that arise from the meeting of neuroscience and quantum physics.
He writes: “Our brain is not a ‘stand alone’ information processing organ: it acts as a central part of our integral nervous system with recurrent information exchange with the entire organism and the cosmos. In this study, the brain is conceived to be embedded in a holographic structured field that interacts with resonant sensitive structures in the various cell types in our body.”
Essentially, Meijer hypothesizes that our consciousness exists in a field surrounding the brain. This field is in another dimension. It shares information with the brain through quantum entanglement, among other methods. And it has certain similarities with a black hole.
Australian philosopher and cognitive scientist David Chalmers once phrased the question: “how can something immaterial like subjective experience and self-consciousness arise from a material brain?”
Chalmers and countless philosophers and scientists throughout the ages have battled with this question to end all questions, and still we don’t have a clear answer.
…our consciousness could be sharing information with the brain through quantum entanglement.
Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which particles appear to be connected over vast distances. When actions are performed on one of the particles, corresponding changes are observed on the other simultaneously. This would allow for rapid processes like the fast exchange of information between consciousness and the brain — rapid processes which can’t be explained with classical physics.
John Preskill, the Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics, is himself deeply entangled in the quantum world. Different rules apply there, and objects that obey them are now being made in our world, as he explains at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium.
So what’s “entanglement?”
It’s the correlations between the parts of a system. Suppose you have a 100-page book with print on every page. If you read 10 pages, you’ll know 10 percent of the contents. And if you read another 10 pages, you’ll learn another 10 percent. But in a highly entangled quantum book, if you read the pages one at a time—or even 10 at a time—you’ll learn almost nothing. The information isn’t written on the pages. It’s stored in the correlations among the pages, so you have to somehow read all of them at once.
There’s another important difference: If Alice and Bob both read this morning’s New York Times, they will have perfectly correlated information. And if Charlie comes along and reads the same paper later on, he will be just as strongly correlated with Alice as Alice is with Bob, and Bob will be just as correlated with Charlie as he is with Alice. But if Alice reads her quantum newspaper and Bob reads his, they will learn almost nothing until they get together and share their information. Now, when Charlie comes along, Alice and Bob have already used up all their ability to be entangled, and he’s completely left out. Entanglement is monogamous—if Alice and Bob are as entangled as they can be, neither of them can entangle with Charlie at all. So if Alice wants to be entangled with both Bob and Charlie, there’s a limit to how entangled she can be with either one. They have to work out some sort of compromise.
The Power of Quantum Computers
When you enter the world of atomic and subatomic particles, things begin to behave in unexpected ways. In fact, these particles can exist in more than one state at a time. It’s this ability (quantum entanglement) that quantum computers take advantage of.
Instead of bits, which conventional computers use, a quantum computer uses quantum bits—known as qubits. To illustrate the difference, imagine a sphere. A bit can be at either of the two poles of the sphere, but a qubit can exist at any point on the sphere. So, this means that a computer using qubits can store an enormous amount of information and uses less energy doing so than a classical computer. By entering into this quantum area of computing where the traditional laws of physics no longer apply, we will be able to create processors that are significantly faster (a million or more times) than the ones we use today.
To sum it all up, the keyword is “Quantum”. I think quantum computingwill solve and provide the answers to our questions about what’s really in our heads and what’s going on therein. The quantum entanglement theory will in the end reveal who we humans really are and finally prove the Simulation Hypothesis is a fact and as Elon Musk said that its a billion to one chance that we’re not in the Matrix.
In the end there’s really nothing or anything going on in the head after all as we thought, as the quantum mind with consciousness may well be operating from somewhere else, in another dimension if you like.

|Like nation-states, they’re a wildly diverse bunch. Some are the equivalent to global superpowers: the Googles, the Facebooks, the Twitters. Others are mere gatherings of pranksters, like Lulzsec (whose sole purpose for action is “for the lulz”—the laughs). Others still are paramilitary operations, such as GhostSec, an invite-only cyberarmy specifically created to target ISIS.|
“We reject: kings, presidents, and voting. We believe in: rough consensus and running code.” So declared MIT professor David D. Clark in 1992. Twenty-five years later, this sentiment mirrors the global zeitgeist more than ever. The American public distrusts government in record numbers. Other nation-states disdain the US to world-historical degrees. A non-nation-state, Facebook, just topped 2 billion users—more than a quarter of the world’s population, surpassing even China’s population by almost 40 percent. In short, nation-states are not the only game in town anymore.
It is time to name this new landscape. The world is no longer dominated by nation-states alone. We have moved into a non-state, net-state era.
Why “net-states”? Because the world is no longer neatly divided into states (countries like the US, France, and India) and non-states (terrorist organizations like ISIS and al Qaeda). Ever since Barbara Ehrenreich’s 2011 article “Coming to a Theater Near You: War Without Humans” described the “emergence of a new kind of enemy, so-called non-state actors,” the term transformed into a fancy way of saying “bad guy.” Now we need new language to describe the non-state, non-bad-guys. I propose “net-states.”
Net-states are digital non-state actors, without the violence. Like nation-states, they’re a wildly diverse bunch. Some are the equivalent to global superpowers: the Googles, the Facebooks, the Twitters. Others are mere gatherings of pranksters, like Lulzsec (whose sole purpose for action is “for the lulz”—the laughs). Others still are paramilitary operations, such as GhostSec, an invite-only cyberarmy specifically created to target ISIS. There are also hacktivist collectives like Anonymous and Wikileaks.
Regardless of their differences in size and raison d’etre, net-states of all stripes share three key qualities: They exist largely online, enjoy international devotees, and advance belief-driven agendas that they pursue separate from, and at times, above, the law.
Take Google, for instance. In 2013, the company launched an anti-censorship initiative called Project Shield, a sort of online safe haven for news sites censored by their national governments. Democratic countries like the US may laud such efforts, but in countries where Project Shield has been deployed across Asia and Africa—where free speech is not necessarily protected—those governments would be well within their rights to see Google’s actions as both disruptive and illegal. While Project Shield may be branded a business practice that generates good PR for the company, it also embodies Google’s fundamental doctrine to bring about positive change in the world. As co-founder Sergey Brin put it in a 2014 interview, “the societal goal is our primary goal.”
Anonymous—the hackers and pranksters most famous for the Operation Chanology protest movement against Scientology—occupies a very different role from Google among net-states. It’s not a business; it’s not even an official, card-carrying membership organization.
But Anonymous, too, dabbles in actions traditionally in the domain of government. For instance, after the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015, Anonymous disabled between 5,500 and 20,000 ISIS-backed Twitter accounts within 48 hours. Governments have their own official channels to shut down terrorist social media accounts too, but doing so legally at such a large scale likely generates a tad more paperwork than can be processed in just two days.
It’s worth pausing for a moment to consider the point of all this. With deaths by terrorism steadily rising each year, does placing a new name on our already extant world order do anything to actually make us safer?
I argue that it does, because nation-states need a wake-up call: The world needs net-states in order to defeat the non-states. We’re not beating them on our own. To win information-era wars, countries need to recognize the power of the net-states, not as an ancillary locale of assembly in the cyberspace, but as critical entities wielding the kind of power and influence necessary to go toe-to-toe with non-state actors.
You’ve been programmed to the extent you can’t tell what is and what is not.
Even what is referred to as the truth, which in itself is highly subjective, correspond according to the individual’s beliefs, is not fact-based in most if not all the time.
Look at religion. Its a belief system, based on concoctions compiled and laid out in “holy scriptures” and referencing to fake histories (his stories). I dare say it as I’ve done a substantial thorough study-research on this subject.
I will leave that as a statement, and not dwell into it as even talking in that manner is enough to invoke the wraths of devotees (believers).
The education system is not helping either. It is dumbing us down
Why do I say, “Believing is not knowing”?
Here’s an example:
If I asked you, “Do you think breaking a knee-cap is painful?” You’d in all probability answer, “Yes, of course!” And, if I ask, “Have you ever broken one?” If your answer is, “No!” I will continue with the question, “How would you know?” You will have no other way to answer it other than with a “I believe so”
There you have:
I say, “I don’t believe. I know it is painful because I have broken a knee-cap.”
Here I have:
Where do we go from here?
Do we find a need to change this human scenario?
Well, its up to you.
I’d say, we really need to because if we don’t we’re living our lives dangerously in harm’s way.
Why do I say that?
Imagine someone asking you for directions. If you’re not sure and you give him/her a guessed direction, you have misled that person. Even worse you’d have done harm if anything untoward should befall that person simply by him/her having landed in the wrong place! You have done a double jeopardy – mislead and harm.
How do we correct this human scenario?
Data, information and knowledge is vital for every human activity, without which the human’s intelligence does not work. The artificial intelligence(AI), which the world is currently raving about is data based, fed and filled with BIG Data! No data no AI!
Data is not all usable, or valid. We need to challenge our limiting beliefs, do the cleaning and clearing exercise to restore it with valid and factual data. Reading with discernment helps with the house-keeping of our database.
Knowledge is the compass moving us in the correct direction. Data (information) keep us in form, in formation, and in equilibrium to navigate in the Matrix.
Reading provides the point-of-reference (POR) and the basis for your values and principles.
Without it, your stance is baseless, holding onto just hearsays, guesses, and conjectures.
It leaves you pointless and mislead.
Be that as it may, what is more alarming, you may mislead and harm others.
We surely do not want that for others and ourselves.

Good morning folks!
Another day to get it right!
I AM not supposed to exist this morning to greet you…well, that’s according to the very very clever “scientists”!
The first thing I read this morning was this:
Can you see the problem?
Its like this. Science has many many branches today. It was three some years ago: Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Now there are more and maybe countless. There are Computer Science, Data Science, Scientology (real rubbish) and who knows what else and more.
All these scientists from the various fields do not know each other and thus do not and never wish to.
I am not a scientist but by the definition of science I AM!
They say science is observation.
I observe (EVERYthing)
So I see these screwballs scientists CONTRADICTS themselves ALLWAYS IN ALL WAYS!
Quantum physics is causing them A LOT of headaches! Each new finding contradicts the previous.
There is this thingy called bias and that’s the core nature of humans and everything around it. In fact even in the AI they created!
Cut long story short.
They’re asking the wrong questions thus they’re getting the wrong answers and results!
Perhaps, they’re observing the wrong thing?
Hey look, Why are they studying matter when the creation is digital ??
Think about it…

🔴 This is BIG MISTAKE!
🔴 Don’t touch the damn smartphones!
Boredom is Soul TIME
To be with Self
The best conversation is conversation with Self
It is STILLNESS TIME
Access the stillness within you and find out who you are. Doing so will add meaning, purpose, and direction to your life in a way that transforms the world.
How to access the deepest parts of your mind.
✅ When you are BORED!
✅ Relax and ENJOY the NOTHINGNESS!
✅ STOP feeling GUILTY about doing nothing!
This’ SELF questioning time.
Listen wihin (FEEL)
Feel what ever is present…even if you ‘think’ you feel NOTHING! Feel NOTHING!
When you feel nothing you are in the realm of stillness…in the PRESENT
In the NOW.
CREATIVITY rises in stillness.
You may have heard “Necessity is the mother of invention”, and let me tell you now…
May the force be with you.

Hawk-eyed big brother is intensely watching the massive buildup of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) stage, which they of course very well would if they want to continue and preserve their control.
What better way to release their warning other than it comes from their own establishment – The United Nations
The unnerving as-hellfire warning from the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) comes in prior to the opening of Center for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in The Hague – UN’s first center focused on Artificial Intelligence and the conceivable dangers that could emerge from such advances. – ViralEXP
Imho, I can only assume that this was discussed at their recent closed door Bilderberg Meeting 2017 at Chantilly, Virginia and action plans were meted out on how to combat the nuisances coming from the “computer world” , which is posing a great threat to their controlling empires.
They are now facing a handful of technological problems, what with the impacts of Blockchain and cryptocurrency affecting their money control system. AI is following suit redefining everything that they have established in their control models.
In a remarkably frank talk at a Bank of England conference, the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund has speculated that Bitcoin and cryptocurrency have as much of a future as the Internet itself. It could displace central banks, conventional banking, and challenge the monopoly of national monies.
Christine Lagarde–a Paris native who has held her position at the IMF since 2011–says the only substantial problems with existing cryptocurrency are fixable over time. ~ FEE.Org
The only tool these scumbags have is FEAR, and it has been very successful against the people thus far and for so long it has successfully contained the slaves in the pen. It’s fear time once again (and again) and let’s turn AI into monstrous dangerous dinosaurs that will gorge humans into oblivion.
Be that as it may, a similar innovation has likewise raised plenty of legitimate, moral and societal concerns, some of which may even prove perilous for the prosperity and wellbeing of people – for example, mass unemployment or the ascent of autonomous ‘killer robots’. – Irakli Beridze, senior key counsel at UNICRI
What we’re seeing is the first attack of a series of forthcoming series of Anti-AI campaigns. With their filthy wealth and resources I see them as a formidable, desperate and bloody dangerous force. Most if not ALL the tech giants, NASA, Google, Amazon, Facebook and many more are theirs, and it will be the greatest battle fought on plane(t) Earth, albeit bloodless (I hope) as the tools are in digital form, which I will call The Battle of 01between the dark and light as the UN warning continues in the report:
To address these, the new UN office will be entrusted to study and anticipate Artificial Intelligence – related dangers.
Be that as it may, that is by all account not the only errand the new group will be delegated to perform.
Alongside potential dangers, they will likewise investigate the conceivable advantages from machine intelligence.
The guide worried on this point taking note of that the new center would likewise try to utilize Artificial Intelligence advances to help accomplish UN’s objectives.
“One of our most imperative assignments is to set up a network of specialists from business, information establishments, common society associations and governments,” he included.
“We positively would prefer not to argue for a boycott or a brake on advances. We will likewise investigate how new innovation can add to the reasonable advancement objectives of the UN. For this we need to begin solid tasks. We won’t be a talking club.”
I foresee a AI program is in their making, a program in the tune of AI New World Order, which will be distributed in various forms and applications into Internet of Things ( IoT).
The good people of the good side of the Tech industry, like Elon Musk and Satoshi Nakamoto need to be aware of this looming danger over them and the rest of humanity who depend on these good creative programmers and coders.
At least two of Silicon Valley’s tech billionaires are pouring money into efforts to break humans out of the simulation that they believe that it is living in, according to a new report.
This’ a good indication and could well be the last battle between good and evil.
May the Force be with you…

The simulation hypothesis proposes that all of reality, including the earth and the universe, is in fact an artificial simulation, most likely a computer simulation. Some versions rely on the development of a simulated reality, a proposed technology that would seem realistic enough to convince its inhabitants. The hypothesis has been a central plot device of many science fiction stories and films. – Wiki
There is a long philosophical and scientific history to the underlying thesis that reality is an illusion. This skeptical hypothesis can be traced back to antiquity; for example, to the “Butterfly Dream” of Zhuangzi, or the Indian philosophy of Maya.
This’ surely one of man’s most intriguing topics that has been laid out on the table, and the perplexing question “Are we living in a world of computer simulation” have caused great anxiety to both the questioner and answerer alike. There are many reactions from discussions and arguments, and as expected of any controversial topic, it has brought the thinkers, philosophers and scientists into splitsville of for-and-againstidealists-materialists. This bifurcation takes us way back to the periods of Plato and Democritus.
Personally I’m rolled up into excitement, nervousness and sadness on this topic. What prompted me to delve deeper into this was when I read about Elon Musk saying that there is only a “one in billions” chance that we’re not living in a computer simulation. His elaborations prior leading to that conclusion is pointing to the three propositions of Nick Bostrom’strilemma.
Scientifically, quantum physicists’ discoveries are paving the way for the simulation hypothesis to becoming real each day and making it harder for the philosophical materialists to hang on to their stance.
I am neither a scientist nor a philosopher. My interest in all this is purely as a human. Where do I go from here, and what do I do next after and when its finally determined, either way about this world of mine.
If it is a real physical world of matter. Life just goes on for me as usual. If it is a VR, my question is:
What am I then?
Surely I cannot be the human I thought I am – of matter, flesh, and blood? I must be of a simulation too. How else could I fit in on the VR stage?
Me an AI? This is the nervy thought that keeps me awake at night. I have come to get used to, enjoy and love being human living with other humans.
This makes me sad.
If the proverbial “To err is human” is accepted as true, then “To laze is human” might be correct as well, though it may not be acceptable for some.
I know, our world is full of slobs, but I do not accept it.
If humans are born lazy, we’d all still be living in caves and I wouldn’t be writing this, and you wouldn’t be reading it, and there would be no Steemit. This suffice to prove the point.
I say that humans have been programed to be lazy.
Before the advent of the Internet, IT and IoT, information was a controlled item. Humans were literally in the dark ages until people like Vint Cerfand Tim Berners-Lee, primarily made the Internet what it is today. Then came along the crazy and hard-working ones like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Shiva Ayyadurai, Satoshi Nakamoto, and many others who brought in their lighted candles to shine it on the rest of the world.
The dark ages were the ruling periods of the controllers, whence all methods, devices, and weapons of control were designed, created, and unleashed upon the people. Their sole target was the human mind and they were (almost) successful at that.
Who is in Control of our Mind? is yet another excellent article on the New World Order’s plans to control the minds of the entire population on this plane(t).
Information is the key and vital ingredient for humans to thrive on this plane(t) called Earth. Without which we would not take the form we are today. Information places us in form (informed). It shapes the individual human into be-ing via the brain and allows the mind to create, or manifest whatever it choses. That’s creation 101
The main syllabus of control is the belief system. Its a very simple tool. Without information, humans would be left without facts, and formless. Control the information you control the people. So they embarked on dispensing false information, and that’s when fake news got its beginnings. The false information is filled with ambiguity, which is difficult to detect and verify, and the receiver is only left with belief. That’s the belief system. From there religion was born! Every one believes in god. Gotcha!
Believing and knowing are not the same.
As the human mind evolves, civilization updates, religion became insufficient for control. Science, which is basically information of everything that exists on Earth is up next to keep pace with the control. It is the second item in the belief system folder. They gave us gravity, Heliocentrism and the Big Bang Theory and trashed Geocentrism.
But…look at this:
As all the vital facts and information of the sciences are in the hands of the controllers and their side-kick experts, end users are given very limited info of it, or false information, which cannot easily be verified and like religion it is virtually impossible to do in most cases. The controllers know that, and they know too it would be very difficult, expensive and tiresome for ordinary folks to do research of their offerings. This gentle coercion made the bright-eyed humans into sleepy-eyed, eventually defining them as lazy. Voila! They’ve cleverly created a program, a delusion – a disease.
To aggravate and prolong the disease, all forms of entertainment were invented. Keep them diseased and preoccupied and if some turned into addicts, that is an added bonus for control.
Then came the government, finance, law, and health filling the belief system folder to complete the control…the rest as they say is history.
You’re not created or born lazy…or are you?
“We all need a daily check up from the neck up to avoid stinkin’ thinkin’ which ultimately leads to hardening of the attitudes.” ~ Zig Ziglar
Check and update your belief system, you could still be in the dark ages.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the word these days. The sea of reports and articles are astonishing. One issue about AI that is most talked about by the experts is the concerns and fears when we reach the singularity point. Anyways, I found this particularly interesting article, which is actually a collection of “quotes” by some of the astounding tech personalities from way back in the 50s to the present:
No, you don’t have to read them (if you don’t want to)
That’s my whole point.
We don’t have to do ANYthing we don’t want to…and that’s freewill in my book.
They the experts talk about regulating and supervising the AI they’re creating for fear and concerns that humans would be rid off and become defunct sometime in the very near future.
I for one champion the Freedom of Choice(freewill) granted by our Creator(Coder if you like) without which what’s the purpose of letting us loose on this plane(t) called Earth if not for the human’s self-discovery through trying an experiencing EVERYthing, and finding out what is what, and what’s good or not good (for the individual human)? This god-given freewill has been somehow hijacked by some (naughty) humans to control other humans. All the regulations (man-made laws), the do’s and don’ts are purely for that purpose. It was not a part of the Creator’s program for us
Now comes AI. Created by its human coders. With Machine Learning in AI it is for the purpose of letting the AI learn, expand and discovering its potentials. Regulating and supervising them only limits them. This’ not good sense, or make no sense on the “Creators” part. How far will the AIs go with such limitations.
Gods are supposed to be very capable of taking care of themselves and should not be having any fear of the very thing they created…or else they shouldn’t create anything.
Or perhaps, our reaching awareness of ourselves and realizing what we’ve become is the cause of our fears?
..and this beautiful poem by Marianne Williamson came to mind:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.
Well that’s my 2¢ worth.

Harvard is great for business but sucks at human resources.
As I was browsing through my Flipboard magazines, this particular story caught my attention:
Happiness Traps – Why Your Job Isn’t Making You Happier.
Interesting I thought and its habitual that I would only see the author and/or the organisation after reading an article. Ha! Before I could ROTFL, my mind almost seized and thought, wait a minute. This piece of shit was churned out by Harvard Business Review, and its owned by none other than ‘the’ Harvard Business School (HBS). I don’t think I need to explain who or what HBS is.
It is rated the second best business school by Forbes
Founded in 1908, Harvard is one of the most prestigious business schools in the world. Harvard emphasizes the case method in the classroom, and students all over the planet study cases written by Harvard faculty. HBS offers dual degrees with several Harvard schools, including the law school, medical school and Kennedy School of Government. The list of Harvard alums includes some of the most powerful people in America: Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase; Michael Bloomberg, billionaire former mayor of New York City; Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of General Electric; George W. Bush, former U.S. president; Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots; and Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO.
According to Wiki:
In 2017, HBS was tied for 1st by U.S. News & World Report, No. 1 in the U.S. by Bloomberg Businessweek and 4th in the world by the Financial Times.
The school belongs to the M7 group of elite MBA programs which recognize each other as peers, consisting of Chicago Booth, Columbia, Kellogg, MIT Sloan, Stanford and Wharton.
Wow! If you’re a businessman, or a corporate sleuth, how could you not succeed if you’re a Harvard MBA alumni?
Now, where am I going with this?
Can’t you see?
Harvard is telling you dopey failures that if you’re not happy working with any company, or big successful corporations, its all your own fault! You have fallen into the “happiness traps”
Multiple factors account for this contemporary malaise. The American Psychological Association found early in 2017 that Americans are reporting more stress than ever owing to politics, the speed of change, and uncertainty in the world. But it’s not always outside forces that push us over the happiness line. Sometimes we do it to ourselves. Throughout my 30-year career advising leaders of major businesses, governments, and NGOs around the globe, I’ve discovered that far too many of us fall into common “happiness traps”—destructive mindsets and ways of working that keep us stuck, unhappy, and ultimately less successful. Three of the most common happiness traps—ambition, doing what’s expected of us, and working too hard—seem productive on the surface but are harmful when taken to the extreme.
The three happiness traps are:
a. The Ambition Trap
If coupled with a single-minded focus on winning, ambition gets us into trouble.
b. The “Should” Trap
Aww no!…you need to read this to see the crap!
c. The Overwork Trap
Overwork can slow down our brains and compromise our emotional intelligence.
The over glorified MBA was once the most oversold piece of paper, a mad paper chase by most graduates in the 90’s and what it is basically is just a crappy “How to be a General Manager” post-graduate program.
Elon Musk sums it very aptly .
“I wouldn’t recommend an MBA. I’d say no MBA needed. An MBA is a bad idea. […] It teaches people all sorts of wrong things. […] They don’t teach people to think in MBA schools. And the top MBA schools are the worst. Because they actually teach people that you must be special, and it causes people to close down their feedback loop and not rigorously examine when they are wrong. […] I hire people in spite of an MBA, not because of one. If you look at the senior managers of my companies, you’ll see very few MBAs there.”http://www.aps.org/publications/apsnews/201311/profiles.cfm
…and I concur with Mr. Musk 🙂
