“Inside the flat a fruity voice was reading out a list of figures which had something to do with the production of pig-iron. The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely.”
George Orwell, from “1984“, 1949
The folks in charge knew it was bad and wrong from the very inception of what they called “The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male“. They knew it was bad and wrong from the moment they used DDT for insect control. And they knew is was bad and wrong when they inverted the food pyramid. It’s a very, very long list.
And, most recently, they knew that “Smart” phone technology was bad and wrong from the moment of its creation. Because the folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything, including the Tuskeegee experiment, DDT, the food pyramid, and “Smart” phones.
But there’s no quit in these guys, and we’re going to have to rescue ourselves. They’re not going to teach us the truth about any of these things in schools, or in magazines and newspapers, or on Wikipedia.
But I don’t want to be too much of a downer, in that this thread is about Positive Changes that are occurring at every level of our reality. And the great news is that one of those positive changes is that the populace has recognized that technology has been weaponized against it.
It’s not like it’s a difficult concept, when you read a story headlined “Blue light like that from smartphones linked to some cancers, study finds.”
I highlighted the three layers of hedging in the headline for you. It’s one of numerous stories I’ve featured below.
The story goes on to say that “The researchers found that those exposed to high levels of outdoor blue light at night had around a 1.5-fold higher risk of developing breast cancer and a twofold higher risk of developing prostate cancer, compared with those who were less exposed. Men exposed to high levels of indoor artificial light also had 2.8-fold higher risk of developing prostate cancer, according to the study.”
In that paragraph, they’ve hedged again by putting the most damning statistic – the largest one – down at the end. That’s called “burying it”, in journalistic parlance. It’s an actual term, for the actual technique they deliberately used. And they called a nearly 300 percent increase in prostate cancer a “2.8 fold higher risk“.
I admit that having the entirety of the planet’s media organs covering for you in lockstep might at first seem like an impressive achievement. But is it really buying them anything?
The game’s slipped from their grasp, it’s over for them. This is a story from yesterday:
“It’s summer! Let’s turn off the 24/7 doomporn newsfeed and tune in to some good news for a change. From game-changing legal decisions to the turn away from zombie tech, here’s all the news that’s actually fit to print.”
“Doomporn“? “Zombie tech“? I couldn’t have said it better, myself. Actually, they’re both a bit florid, don’t you find? They’re kind of a “I’m with the program!” over-exaggeration – a sweaty-faced effort to keep their necks out of the hangman’s noose, I say.
I give the “Smart” phone, the Greatest Invention in Human History, that we’re assured will be with us forever, about a year, maybe two.
Because when the school of fish, the flock of birds turns, they do so apparently as one.
How long before communities spring up that begin shielding wiring as part of building code, begin banning wifi? Once it starts, the folks in charge won’t be able to stop it without tipping their hand – hence the sweaty-faced “I’m with the program!” news story they just published.
Can you feel and hear the ring of truth?
This is the time – right now – to press our advantage. If you are on the fence, step up. We’ve lost Don Croft – his Hall of Fame career is now in the books. Who will honor his memory by stepping up and gifting, and posting reports here, now?
If you haven’t already done so, I would urge you to please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work today, or sponsoring a gifter, perhaps even through a vehicle such as this forum.

The California Department of Public Health released a new set of guidelines on cell phone use and radiation risk — revisiting a years-long debate about whether the pocket-sized gadgets we can’t live without are slowly giving us cancer.
The guidelines are cautious. They state that some scientific studies have linked long-term, frequent cell phone use with brain cancer, low sperm count, and learning, hearing and sleep issues. They note that the risks may be higher for children.
But there’s an ongoing discussion in the scientific community about whether those health risks are severe enough to warrant any alarm. The department itself admits the link is not conclusive.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are great phones, but they’re also pretty boring. They look exactly like last year’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and they don’t really offer any innovative new features at all. Instead, they feature a modest step forward in terms of specs, and a new camera. That’s probably why sales have reportedly been quite bad so far, a notion that’s definitely backed up by the fact that the phones’ prices were slashed at three out of four major US wireless carriers within a month of release.

Blue light from digital devices and the sun transforms vital molecules in the eye’s retina into cell killers, according to optical chemistry research at The University of Toledo.
The process outlined in the study, which was recently published in the journal Scientific Reports, leads to age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness in the United States.
(They’ve devious chopped up the main sentence, “blue light from digital devices leads to macular degeneration.” Is it age-related, or is it blue-light-related? They’re thrown “age-related” in there so you’ll think, “oh, I’ll get it because I’m old, anyway.” – ed)
