I don’t know how many people have noticed this, but in the past three months it has been impossible for a person to throw a beef burger patty in any direction on the compass without hitting a news article on the “destructive effects” of the meat industry in terms of “climate change”. There’s also been endless mainstream articles on the supposedly vast health benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet. This narrative has culminated in a tidal wave of stories about vegetable-based meat companies like Beyond Meat and their rise to stock market stardom. The word on the street is, meat based diets are going the way of the Dodo, and soon, by environmental necessity, we will ALL be vegetarians. Continue Reading
You can bet that whenever you find people analyzing the root of a problem you will also find other people trying to derail those efforts with dishonest arguments. For reasons that we can guess at but are rarely able to confirm, there are some folks out there that get rather agitated at constructive discussion among their fellow humans. One of the most common tactics for hijacking the discussion of a problem is to suggest that it is “all pointless” unless those same people can offer a grand solution to the problem. This is Alinsky-style disruption 101. Continue Reading
No one is talking about it openly, but, let us face it: those U.S.-made planes are crashing; the performance of Apple phones and computers is falling far behind those made by Huawei and other Chinese companies. Lenovo took over IBM and is doing extremely well. NASA is absolutely incapable of building decent rockets that would be able to deliver people or even satellites to space, cheaply and safely. Continue Reading
With their inventiveness, perhaps not always very healthy and constructive, human beings have managed to cheat on many things: on the amount of gold they possessed, covering for example lead with a thin gold leaf ; on gasoline to which water can be added at the risk of having to clean the carburetor; on the ground beef that can be substituted for skin, beet juice, crushed bones and fat without giving it the proper taste, but this substitute can still be passed on to poor people who have never before eaten real steak … However, there is one thing on… Continue Reading
Transcript of the Interview with Claudia von Werlhof on Geoengineering, CO2, Ozone Depletion, Bertell, HAARP, 5G Professor Claudia von Werlhof wrote to Greta Thunberg. In this letter von Werlhof tells that the disruption of the global climate is not due to CO2. Following questions arose from this letter for Silvia Terribili, who asked von Werlhof to give an interview for her radio show Onda Italiana on salto.nl, April 9th. Where can we find scientific evidence for this, since the mainstream information tells us every day that the climate disruption is due to CO2? Some 30 years ago concerned environmentalists already asked for a drastic… Continue Reading
One million children joined the V-Star Change the World, which is a Buddhist annual meditation event that occurred at the Phra Dhammakaya temple near Bangkok.
This meditation lasts for a day and is believed to be able to change the world. Continue Reading
The weekend just gone, Manifestation 23, marked a seismic shift in the five month battle between the Gilets Jaunes and the French state. The Notre Dame fire has brought into the open the strategic shift in public opinion that has occurred over the winter; shifts all to the advantage of the Gilets Jaunes. While the cold winter months with their looming darkness only allowed us to glimpse two equal parties grinding away at each other in the gloom, the advent of spring and its clear light, reveals how the Gilets are gathering reserves of strength all over France, and how, now, they are slowly winning in Paris as well. The sight of French police surrounding Notre Dame and denying access to its ‘own’ population, starkly illustrates what the state seeks to deny. After all, these sort of monuments are the materiality through which states demonstrates their connection to the population, their right to rule and their own power. Continue Reading
As a parent and spouse, you try to ensure your family is healthy and happy, and you do everything within your power to keep them safe. It doesn’t cross your mind that the products that you are using to keep them safe may actually be placing them in harm’s way.
When you think of health and well-being, proper nutrition and supplementation are often on the top of the list of ways to keep your family safe. You don’t consider analyzing the products you use for cleaning purposes, for example.
The truth is that there are a number of known carcinogens in our homes lurking in the shower, the toilet, the kitchen cupboard, and the rest of the house that have the potential to substantially increase the risk of you or your family developing cancer. Continue Reading
Three lessons from the ‘failed’ Mueller inquiry 25 March 2019 Here are three important lessons for the progressive left to consider now that it is clear the inquiry by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russiagate is never going to uncover collusion between Donald Trump’s camp and the Kremlin in the 2016 presidential election. Painting the pig’s face 1. The left never had a dog in this race. This was always an in-house squabble between different wings of the establishment. Late-stage capitalism is in terminal crisis, and the biggest problem facing our corporate elites is how to… Continue Reading
What can we Learn From the Middle Ages About Collapse? The Great Challenge of the Seneca Bottleneck The idea that a collapse is awaiting our civilization seems to be gaining ground, although it has not reached the mainstream debate. But no civilization before ours escaped collapse, so it makes sense to think that the entity we call “The West” is going to crash down, badly, in the future. Then, just as it happened to the Romans long ago, we are going to enter a new world. What will it be? Will it look like the Middle Ages?… Continue Reading
[NW’s Note: Chris Hedges’ vision may seem very pessimistic, but many elements are already present and others close to manifest themselves. However, nothing in the matter seems eternal, not even such a totalitarian world. Will the delivery of a desirable New World for Humanity be painless?] The World to Come The ruling elites are painfully aware that the foundations of American power are rotting. The outsourcing of manufacturing in the United States and the plunging of over half the population into poverty will, they know, not be reversed. The self-destructive government shutdown has been only one of… Continue Reading
Author: John PILGER THE PRISONER SAYS NO TO BIG BROTHER 4 March 2019 John Pilger invokes George Orwell in calling on his compatriots to stand up for the freedom of ‘a distinguished Australian’, the founder and editor of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, and for ‘real journalism of a kind now considered exotic’… Whenever I visit Julian Assange, we meet in a room he knows too well. There is a bare table and pictures of Ecuador on the walls. There is a bookcase where the books never change. The curtains are always drawn and there is no natural light. The… Continue Reading
Venezuela, Gangsters Return to Assault Democracy Author: ALEX ANFRUNS Venezuela is today facing great danger of war, chaos and destruction, with the active participation of the US, the EU and Colombia. These countries have economic interests and use a sector of the Venezuelan opposition to make believe that a “parallel government” exists. In fact, their strongest bet has always been coup d’état. Let’s remember a few things. After winning a majority in the December 2015 legislative elections, the Venezuelan right wing defended a “Law of Amnesty and National Reconciliation”. The objective was not to free so-called “political prisoners”,… Continue Reading
“Men Have Forgotten God” – The Templeton Addressby Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. Since then I have spent well-nigh fifty years working on the history of our Revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that… Continue Reading
The total enslavement of an individual or a human group cannot be done as long as this one has free access to the resources he needs to fulfill his corresponding needs . Since some of the needs are more vital than others, controlling the corresponding resources is particularly important and a priority. Those who seek to enslave give priority to monopolize them. And those who seek to preserve their freedom gain to keep them or to discover equivalents. History can be read as a long struggle between, on the one hand, elites eager to… Continue Reading
The U.N.’s Global Warming War On Capitalism: An Important History Lesson Larry Bell ContributorI write about aerospace, environment, energy, Second Amendment policy The U.N.’s latest climate alarmist meeting in Doha, Qatar experienced somewhat of a different sort of man-made crisis in December in the form of a typhoon named Christopher Monckton, the third viscount of Benchley, advisor to former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and climate realist. Temporarily purloining a vacant microphone assigned to a delegate from Burma, he gave the entire audience some very terrifying news…announcing that “in the 16 years we have been coming to these conferences,… Continue Reading
In some esoteric or spiritual circles or networks, there has been for some decades an increasingly popular theory according to which a significant number of human beings would have no soul. Before examining the possible consequences of such a vision of things and in particular to whom it can benefit, we will make a short summary and a quick evocation of its more distant origins. The evoked theory presents various variants, but most often exposes that nearly half of the human beings, of pre-Adamic origin, would be devoid of soul and thus simple “organic portals” just good to be manipulated… Continue Reading
Have you ever met someone face-to-face that seemed relatively normal at first, but after a short time they began to reveal odd and disturbing character traits? They showed an inability to laugh at their own mistakes and only laughed at other people’s expense? They had an obsessive need to tear down the legitimate accomplishments of others to elevate themselves? They were robotic and overly predictable in their daily routines? They lacked remorse for any actions that harmed other people? They tended to exploit the people around them for entertainment or personal gain? They often bragged… Continue Reading
If we define art as the materialization, the manifestation, the representation or the expression of a set of sensations, emotions or feelings and as a way to make them reflect, then there is a close relationship between the art of a civilization and the sensory, emotional and sentimental life of the individuals who compose it. In other words, by studying the various forms of art of a civilization, one can know in particular the emotions and feelings that dominate and influence it. We can notably know if these favor the elevation of the souls or on the contrary their descent… Continue Reading
The article “Macron Resigns” shows how users of social networks tend to consume information, and even more, often only that which reinforces their beliefs, without seeking or verifying its veracity or deepening by additional research and reflection on the topics covered. In the era of fast food and ephemeral fashions, the phenomenon is not really surprising. Even particularly exceptional or dramatic “news” will be forgotten after a few days or weeks, even if they are broadcast repeatedly for several hours or days by the mainstream media. People absorb emotion without much effort, since it is enough for them to slouch… Continue Reading
