While Arlene Foster with the complicity of Sinn Fein, keep NI on lockdown even though our figures are minuscule, I noticed that, around my town, new cameras have been put up. These are not CCTV or traffic cameras, these are face recognition, track and trace cameras to keep an eye on us wherever we go. There are 2 on the main bridge in the centre of town and 4 on the new bridge. Big Brother has arrived and our political representatives remain silent. This is why we have been kept on lockdown, to give them time to get them in place - coming to a road near you any day now that's if they are not already up.
I watched an interview with Dr Judy Mikovits on the London Real website, she is a virologist. I thought that all this was just to do with oil and money, which I am sure is a part of it, but the threads run deeper and darker and, to be honest, I am frightened of where this is leading. If you care anything about your health, or your family and friends, then please, take the time to watch this, it is an hour and 40 minutes long and well worth a look. I will put the link down below.
I am also reading Carl Sagan's The Demon Haunted World at the moment, I'm only a couple of chapters in but I came across this passage and I felt I had to share it with you, it's very prescient especially when you consider that it was written in 1996 about America but just as easily applies to the UK:
“I have a
foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time -- when the
United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the
manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome
technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing
the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the
ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority;
when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our
critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good
and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and
The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance. As I write, the number one video rental in America is the movie Dumb and Dumber. Beavis and Butthead remains popular (and influential) with young viewers. The plain lesson is that study and learning - not just of science, but of anything - are avoidable, even undesirable.
We've arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements - transportation, communication and all other industries; agriculture, medicine, education, entertainment, protecting the environment; and even the key democratic institution of voting - profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.”
I think it just did. Carl Sagan must be spinning in his grave.
