There are still many people who instantly place those who question the official narrative of 9/11 within the conspiracy realm. They do this automatically, without ever investigating or questioning for themselves, simply trusting in whatever narrative is provided to them via mainstream media. This is partly due to fear — it’s easier, and more comfortable, and less frightening to believe there are enemies far from home who wish us harm than to consider that the people we chose to put in positions of great power here in our own country are manipulating us, and lying to us. It would definitely bring up some cognitive dissonance, and this is why the “conspiracy” reaction is still prevalent, because there are some who believe that ignorance is bliss.
More Than 165 Million Americans Don’t Believe The Official 9/11 Story and Think the Government Is Covering Something Up
The latest polls show that 54.3% of the American population doesn’t believe the official story that their government told them, and that they “strongly agree” or “report” their belief that something else actually happened on that day.
We’re talking about approximately 160 million people, and that’s just in America. Imagine what the numbers would look like if the polls were conducted globally?
Do you really think this many people could believe in such a “conspiracy theory” just because? The reason why the majority of the American population does believe that a false flag event occurred on 9/11 is because a wealth of information has emerged, in the form of documents, videos, witness testimony, studies, and more, that clearly points to the fact that our own government lied to us. People are not stupid, and 160 million people aren’t simply going to believe something just for the sake of it; there are reasons behind their beliefs.
What frustrates me is the fact that a popular news network, like CNN, can suddenly grab hold of an event and provide the “official” narrative provided to them by the global elite, and that’s because the small group of corporations that controls mainstream media is actually owned by them. Why is a television news anchor so readily believed, yet any information that surfaces via other means is dismissed as fake news? It’s not real until it’s on CNN, right?
This is a big problem, especially because we now have proof of mainstream media’s relationship with intelligence agencies. See the below articles for more details on that:
Academics Are Getting in on It, and Studies Are Being Published
It’s unfortunate that we rely on academia for so much. This trust has been used against us many times, a fact made clear through the close relationship intelligence agencies actually hold with academic institutions and university/college curricula in general. But the truth will prevail — it always does — and even those within the field of academia are coming forward on this issue, which seems to become more obvious every single year.
One of them is Professor Lynn Margulis, from the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts, whose research has led her to believe that “all three buildings were destroyed by carefully planned, orchestrated and executed controlled demolition.”
It bears repeating that fires have never caused the total collapse of a steel-framed high-rise before or since 9/11. Did we witness an unprecedented event three separate times on September 11, 2001? The NIST reports, which attempted to support that unlikely conclusion, fail to persuade a growing number of architects, engineers, and scientists. Instead, the evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that all three buildings were destroyed by controlled demolition. Given the far-reaching implications, it is morally imperative that this hypothesis be the subject of a truly scientific and impartial investigation by responsible authorities.
The study also emphasizes that the collapse mechanics are only a fraction of the available evidence indicating that the airplane impacts and fires had nothing to do with the building collapse:
Videos show that the upper section of each tower disintegrated within the first four seconds of collapse. After that point, not a single video shows the upper sections that purportedly descended all the way to the ground before being crushed. Videos and photographs also show numerous high-velocity bursts of debris being ejected from point-like sources. NIST refers to these as “puffs of smoke” but fails to properly analyze them. NIST also provides no explanation for the midair pulverization of most of the towers’ concrete, the near-total dismemberment of their steel frames, or the ejection of those materials up to 150 meters in all directions. NIST sidesteps the well-documented presence of molten metal throughout the debris field and asserts that the orange molten metal seen pouring out of WTC 2 for the seven minutes before its collapse was aluminum from the aircraft combined with organic materials. Yet experiments have shown that molten aluminum, even when mixed with organic materials, has a silvery appearance—thus suggesting that the orange molten metal was instead emanating from a thermite reaction being used to weaken the structure. Meanwhile, unreacted nano-thermitic material has since been discovered in multiple independent WTC dust samples.
Dr. J Leroy Hulsey, Chair of the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, has teamed up with Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth to commence a rigorous academic study into what really caused Building 7 to collapse. World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC) is the building that collapsed on 9/11 despite only experiencing some small fires on a couple of floors — it was not hit by a plane. You can read more about that here, as the results are in.
Thousands of Architects and Engineers Still Condemn It
Another piece of information that people are still waking up to regarding 9/11 is the fact that over 2,500 architects and engineers who come from the top of the industry and academia have crushed the ‘official’ 9/11 commission report.
Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect of 25 years, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and the founder and CEO of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth.org), a 501(c)3 educational charity representing more than 2,000 degreed/licensed architects and engineers who have signed a petition calling for a new, independent investigation, with full subpoena power, into the destruction of the Twin Towers and the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7 on 9/11. The more than 17,000 non-A/E signatories include many scientists, attorneys, and other responsible, educated citizens in the U.S. and abroad. They cite overwhelming evidence for explosive controlled demolition.
Below is an interview with him from a few years ago.
Now, More People Know About False Flag Terrorism
David Steele, the second-highest ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence and a former CIA clandestine services officer, said:
Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.
False flag terrorism refers to the idea that a group of powerful people, who run, in this case, the United States government, had their hands in this attack, and them blamed it on another entity, for the purposes of invading that country, installing our own government, for the acquisition of natural resources and various other ulterior motives.
We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level . . . and there is an ongoing war, it is led by the United States, it may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington . . . The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. . . . They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor. . . . The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.

Below is a great video describing this type of agenda, or “stories manufactured by a small group of people.”
A Missile Probably Hit the Pentagon, Not a Plane
To the left you will see a quote from from Major General Albert Stubblebine, one of many insiders who has spoken out about 9/11. Here’s another video of him openly discussing the incident, with emphasis on the fact that a plane never actually hit the Pentagon, as reported by mainstream media news outlets.
Just as people forgot the that there was a third building (Building #7), they also forgot about the Pentagon. The official story was that a plane also crashed into it, but that doesn’t seem to be panning out.
Below is a video sharing one of several reasons why more people have started asking more questions every single year since the event took place.
It Created Islamophobia
“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda, and any informed intelligence officer knows this. But, there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an intensified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the United States.”
– Robin Cook, former British Foreign Secretary (source)
What is Islamophobia? It’s the dislike of or prejudice against Islam or Muslim people, and it’s running rampant in the United States right now. Thanks to biased media representation, endless fear campaigns, and many other factors, much of the general public has unjustified and negative preconceived notions about Muslim people.
Religion, in this case, is being used to create more hate and division. 9/11 was a big catalyst for this, and was used to heighten the threat of “terrorist” attacks from Muslim people.
If the Islamic State were indeed a creation, funded by the Western Military Alliance, just ask yourself, where does your hatred really come from?
In America, people are being given a false depiction of Islam. We are blaming ‘terrorist’ events, created by the Deep State, on an entire religion. Consider that the next time you witness hatred against a Muslim person. Speak up and speak out, because we are all one.
The ironic thing is that this hate is completely manufactured and then programmed into our collective consciousness.
Firefighters Heard Bombs
Below is a video of two firefighters discussing how secondary explosions occurred immediately before the collapse of the Twin Towers, after the planes had already hit. Even though it’s an old video, it’s useful to share given the fact that people are still waking up to the possibility that the official story presented to the public was false. The firefighters discuss how bombs were going off in the lobby of World Trade Center Tower 1 (WTC1) as they were moving up the building, and it’s not the first time a 9/11 firefighter has come forward expressing the same thing. Many have done so. Again, the planes had already hit and the fires were already burning. They go on to state that after a third explosion went off, the entire lobby collapsed.
Multiple World Leaders Have Told Us That This Was An Inside Job
“The hypothesis that is gaining strength … is that it was the same U.S. imperial power that planned and carried out this terrible terrorist attack or act against its own people and against citizens of all over the world. Why?Why? To justify the aggressions that immediately were unleashed on Afghanistan, on Iraq.”
Vladimir Putin is the most recent politician to reference false flag terrorism, stating directly and live that the recent supposed chemical attack in Syria was a “false flag” and that “more are being prepared in Syria.”
He’s said a number of times that these so-called terrorists are not being organized by who we think they are, and he calls out the “imaginary and mythical threats” being used to control us.
This was the sentiment expressed by multiple speakers, including Putin, at the 13th annual meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club, whose theme this year was “The Future in Progress: Shaping the World of Tomorrow.”
You can read more about that and see what else he had to say here.
It Brought The World Together in Prayer, as These Attacks Always Do, But….
As always, these terrorist attacks seem to unite humanity, and show just how much empathy we have for others. This is a clear example of the collective voice of our planet, which really does not wish this type of violence on anybody, and would like to see our world rid of it.
The problem, however, with constantly seeing 9/11 memorials pop up on television, is that they are being used to fuel the flame of national security, a heightened military presence, more defence funding, and the lies that surround the “war on terrorism.”
“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”
It’s beautiful to remember, to pray, and to honour victims of tragedy, but when our memory and our heart are used to push a specific narrative, it’s a problem. And it further shows that, every time something like this happens, we put our own power into the hands of others instead of tackling the problem ourselves.
Praying is wonderful, but how can we ever stop what is happening without recognizing or identifying what exactly happened? This is more important. I expand on these thoughts in an article (linked below) I published after the “terrorist” attacks that occurred in Paris last year.
According to the official explanation, Building #7 came down as a result of structural instability and fires. I would suggest that anyone who hasn’t researched WTC 7 yet spend a bit of time checking it out. WTC 7 also fell on 9/11 and was not struck by any planes. For me, it was another nail in the coffin to an already obvious truth.
Here is a video of billionaire Larry Silverstein, CEO of Silverstein Properties, who acquired the World Trade Center Twin Towers six weeks before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, stating that it was actually a controlled demolition. It counters the mainstream narrative, as does all of the evidence showing that it was clearly a demolition. He admits it.
Rudy Dent is one of many firefighters who has questioned the official story of what happened that day, based on his firsthand experience of the event and also his professional expertise. He is a Vietnam War veteran, a four year member of the NYPD, and has spent thirty-two years as a NYC firefighter.
The following interview was conducted by Infowars reporter Lee Ann McAdoo with another firefighter.
Below is a video of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld talking about World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC), interviewed by Luke Rudkowski from We Are Change.
Did you know that BBC correspondent Jane Standley reported the collapse of WTC 7 (Soloman Brothers building) 20 minutes before it happened? You can watch that broadcast here.
Mainstream media is completely scripted — perhaps they messed up here?
It Created Awareness About Governments Within Governments
The Deep State refers to a coordinated effort by career government employees and others to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership.
When Eisenhower coined the term “Military Industrial Complex,” his main concern was the potential for the “disastrous rise of misplaced power.” After him, John F Kennedy (JFK) warned the citizenry that we are living in “a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.” He went on to state that “its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
Before both of these two, 28th President of the United States Woodrow Wilson revealed:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
The list of presidents and politicians who have acknowledged this secret government is a long one. Here’s one of my favourites from Theodore Roosevelt:
Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.
From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.
To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.
Here is an article regarding the Deep State institutions that now control America, and events like 9/11.
A Heightened National Security State and the Loss of Our Rights
Since 9/11, and other “terrorist” attacks, the terror threat has been used not only to justify the infiltration and takeover of other countries, but also the stripping away of our rights here in North America.
As NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake pointed out to VICE news:
In the years after 9/11, Thomas Drake, then a National Security Agency (NSA) executive, saw something he couldn’t abide: an NSA-led program named Stellarwind. The dragnet-surveillance operation was spying on American citizens using a combination of wiretapping and mass-data collection through the internet.
Drake protested internally, feeling that Stellarwind violated the Fourth Amendment and was highly illegal—a warrantless surveillance of citizens on home soil. But Michael Hayden, then the head of the NSA who presided over the program, believed American spies had to do whatever it took to prevent another such tragedy.
According to Drake, when the September 11 attacks happened—15 years ago—the military-and-intelligence-industrial complex became so obsessed with hunting terrorists that the rights of American citizens were trumped. He complained through every legal channel and whistleblower-protection law to no avail. So in the winter of 2006, he contacted a reporter at the Baltimore Sun and helped her expose some of the NSA abuses he loathed.
For his actions, the FBI raided Drake’s home, and he was charged under the Espionage Act of 1917, narrowly avoiding 35 years in jail.
Unfortunately, national security can now be used to justify keeping anything and everything a secret.
We are talking about Special Access Programs (SAP). From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘Deep Black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.”
How far is too far, and how many more rights will be taken away from the American people? This is done constantly each and every year, and a heightened national security state is the key. War, terrorism, and other threats are needed to impose these restrictions on the citizenry.
It’s a big problem.
The 9/11 Commission Was Railroaded
Did you know that the commissioners were given very limited funds to conduct their investigation? Only $15 million, compared to the more than $60 million that was spent on investigating Clinton’s affairs with Monica Lewinsky. Doesn’t make much sense, does it? Especially considering that this was the largest act of murder in recent American history.
I’m saying that’s deliberate. I am saying that the delay in relating this information to the American public out of a hearing… series of hearings, that several members of Congress knew eight or ten months ago, including Bob Graham and others, that was deliberately slow walked… the 9/11 Commission was deliberately slow walked, because the Administration’s policy was, and its priority was, we’re gonna take Saddam Hussein out.
In 2006, the Washington Postreported that several members of the 9/11 Commission suspected deception on part of the Pentagon:
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.
President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney also old the commission that they would not be formally interviewed in relation to the attacks on September 11. They instead interviewed them behind closed doors, together, in secret. Very little was publicly disclosed.
The Global Elite Wants to Make You Look and Feel Stupid for Questioning These Types of Things
As with many other topics, propaganda is used to keep us in line and prevent us from questioning, to the point where we’re made to feel stupid for questioning the narrative put out by mainstream media. We see the same type of ridicule technique being used bythe pharmaceutical industry, especially when it comes to vaccines. The day we stop questioning is the day we will be completely controlled. This tactic is the reason so many people simply trust the story that’s presented to them on television and fear considering other options. The global elite understands and capitalizes on our innate fear of being judged by others.
If mass media, marketing, and other techniques succeed in preventing us from sharing our thoughts, opinions, and feelings, simply because they oppose the popular narrative, we’re in trouble. This is why it’s so important to speak out, to think, and to critically investigate.
It Woke Up Millions of People, And Helped Birth “Alternative Media”
I recall a conversation I was in on with Ben Swann, and a few others. He expressed his dislike for the term “alternative” news, given the fact that it’s simply just news. It was a great point.
After 9/11, there were so many holes in the story that people began to investigate other sources of information. Not many people know that our sources of information lie in the hands of a very few, with special interests, through a handful of corporations and the people who run them.
Websites like Collective-Evolution started to pop up, and a few years after 9/11, started gaining more traction. Our website alone has amassed over 1 billion views since its inception. Over the past decade, so much has been exposed in the form of credible sources, from documents released via the Freedom of Information Act to high ranking whistleblowers and much more.
People started to realize that the world we live in is not the world that we’ve been presented with, and that the disclosure of information actually threatens the global elite’s plans for us, whatever those plans may be. They started to realize that “news” was not really news, that they were just selected stories, and that a whole lot more is actually going on behind the scenes, with regards to major global events, than we’re made aware of.
It also birthed movements like Wikileaks.
As a result of this mass attention, this mass awakening of information, other news outlets that were not part of mainstream media were criticized, and labelled as “fake news.”
Entities like Snopes, in conjunction with Disney (a mainstream media hub), have now begun to censor information, and U.S. national security advocates are using “fake news” as justification.
This is just how much “alternative” media has impacted the globe, and now there is a war to stop it. But truth never stops; it continues to creep out here and there, transforming the minds and perception of the masses, and thus, creating the possibility for the transformation of our world.
It Shifted Collective Consciousness
This is a big point. 9/11 is perhaps one of the, if not the biggest, event that is shifting the collective consciousness, which includes our thoughts, feelings, and perceptions of the world.
Even at the cellular level, organisms can change in many ways, often as a result of changes in their environment. 9/11 is one such change that is shifting the way we perceive our environment. It was a “the Earth is not flat” moment for many, as it woke millions, if not billions, of people up to the deception and corruption that plague our world.
After the event occurred, anyone who questioned the official story was made to feel stupid or crazy. Today, it’s a far different story, and that just goes to show how much information leaked out, and how much transparency there was, despite massive coverup efforts that are still ongoing today.
When our worldview shifts, the entire human experience begins to shift, and by critically thinking and asking questions, and by taking initiative in doing so, we take the first steps toward change. So much happens in plain sight, right in front of our eyes, yet we continually remain blind to it. When we start to see, these events become even more difficult for the elite to manifest.
This is just one way 9/11 has helped to shift consciousness. How are we supposed grow, evolve, and become better as a human race when there is so much secrecy in our world? Information opens the door to discovery, which opens the door for paradigm changing revelations, which in turn opens the door for a new human experience. If we are constantly kept blind to what really happens on our planet, and what really happened with regards to events like 9/11, we cannot shift past all of these experiences of war, hate, and greed, in our own lives or on a collective scale.
Ultimately, a shift in consciousness needs to occur in the hearts of those who push these events forward and manufacture them, because change starts with the individual, and awareness is key for that.
We need to stop allowing these events to trigger us, and we need to step back, and step out of ourselves and see it all from a much larger, cosmic perspective — to simply view it as an experience for the human race, and an opportunity to better ourselves. Let us not dwell on the “fateful events that happened that day” when these so-called “terrorists” did what they did. Let us instead see through the lies that perpetuate war, separation, and fear, and take back our power. Let’s start thinking, questioning, and examining instead of continually having our thoughts about “what is” dictated to us by a small group of people.
Sweden has not enforced a mandatory quarantine or police enforced lock-down, they are still experiencing deaths as well as infections, but have not enforced policies in place.
Just because many governments have taken an extreme approach to "flattening the curve" does not mean that this is the best approach. Sweden trusts it's citizens to make appropriate decisions for themselves and their families, why don't ours?
While the majority of rest of the world is under a state of quarantine and some places with a police enforced lockdown, the country of Sweden takes an entirely different approach. The Western approach has triggered mass panic, fear and confusion about what is going on and when and if they will ever get to go back to how things were. The Swedish government, on the other hand has a close bond with their citizens and they have developed a sense of trust over the years by treating the adults, as adults who are capable of making informed decisions and taking appropriate measures to keep themselves and their families safe.
Sweden Takes A More Relaxed Approach
Unlike most of their European neighbours, Sweden has not closed non-essential businesses, borders or schools. They also have not banned gatherings containing two or more people. Sweden’s response to the global pandemic is being overseen mostly by the country’s Public Health Agency, which by the way, is a separate entity from their government. Sweden puts the power in the hands of the people, trusting that they will voluntarily adopt the recommended measures to delay the spread of the virus. They are still encouraging those who are vulnerable to stay at home and practice social distancing, and those who are ill to do the same, but they are not using force, hysteria, fear and panic to do so.
But in view of the evident worsening of the situation, Lena Hallengren, Minister of Social Affairs and Health and Johan Carlson, Director General of the National Institute of Public Health, presented new guidelines and regulations to try to limit the damage caused by the Covid-19 virus.
The most important of these guidelines concerns the number of customers in shops and stores, public transport and the activities of the country’s sports clubs.
Johan Carlson said, “Everyone should avoid participating in large social events, such as baptisms, weddings and big parties.” (source)
Of course, considering the state of the rest of the world, Sweden has attracted a lot of criticism from within the country and outside of it. The leading epidemiologist for the Public Health Agency, Anders Tegnell told CNBC in an interview that although his country was attempting a different strategy to defeat the spread of the virus, their aim was the same, “My view is that basically all European countries are trying to do the same thing — we’re trying to slow down the spread as much as possible to keep healthcare and society working … and we have shown some different methods to slow down the spread. Sweden has gone mostly for voluntary measures because that’s how we’re used to working, and we have a long tradition that it works rather well.”
Prime Minister of Sweden, Stefan Lofven has announced that times will be tough and has put the responsibility on the individual Swedes rather than having governments enforce strict measures, saying, “We all, as individuals, have to take responsibility. We can’t legislate and ban everything.”
Is Sweden In Danger?
It is interesting to note that as of today (April 3rd) there have been only 6,131 cases of Covid19 reported in Sweden, this ranks Sweden as 19th on the worldmeters.info list. So, in comparison to 18 other countries Sweden is actually doing alright with the measures they have put in to place.
Only time will tell if the measures taken by Sweden were appropriate or not. If they are able to manage the problem and still effectively “flatten the curve” it may be upsetting to the all the countries that are currently being asked to stay inside at all costs. A positive aspect to Sweden’s approach is that they are not using fear tactics as a means to control their citizens, less fear/stress means stronger immune systems.
Imagine if your government trusted you as a citizen enough to make the best decisions for you and your family based off recommendations instead of enforcing measures to control its citizens. I mean, can we get a little credit here to make appropriate decisions on our own during times like these? Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus, he referred to them as “draconian.” You can see his statement and read more about that here.
Only time will tell what the best response to this year’s outbreak turns out to be, but for the moment Sweden’s more laissez-faire approach should be heartening to its population. The government entrusting its citizens to observe advice and adjust their behaviours accordingly without the threat of police intervention is something that should be applauded in a free society. It also maintains a higher level of trust going in the other direction, from the public to the government. On a practical level, not employing draconian measures immediately prevents hysteria from taking hold amongst the public and allows for a slower escalation of measures should they be needed.
Trust is an important factor in a democracy where a government rules by consent of the people. Public trust in Sweden is exceptionally high, with citizens having faith that their politicians are acting in the public interest. Their propensity to treat adults like adults is key to that trust remaining.”
Just because many governments worldwide have enforced these strict measures doesn’t necessarily mean that they are the only option we have and they are the only way to effectively stop the spread. There are a lot of points worth pondering when it comes to the approach taken by most of the western world and it’s important to always keep asking questions. Absolutely stay home if you’re sick or have a compromised immune system, but for those who aren’t don’t forget to get out in the sunshine, get some fresh air, go for walks in nature and try to mitigate some of the fear and stress you may be feeling.
We are all in this together.
Articles From Collective Evolution That Go Into More Detail About The New Coronavirus.
Haidar el Ali, who once served as Senegal's Minister of Environment, has led one of the largest reforestation projects the world has ever seen. The program that has successfully planted 152 million mangrove buds in the Casamance Delta, Senegal.
If one person can do this, why can't the 'global elite' who have access to tremendous resources do more of this type of thing? What's really on?
Haidar el Ali, who once served as Senegal’s Minister of Environment, led a program that has successfully planted 152 million mangrove buds in the Casamance Delta of souther Senegal over the past decade. This represents one of the largest reforestation projects the world has ever seen. He’s been planting since 2009, and the success of the project truly goes to show what the human race is capable of, let alone one person.
As most of you reading this know, forests are one of the most exploited habitats on our planet, and a number of industries are responsible for their rapid destruction. Animal agriculture, alone, for example, makes up the large majority of amazon deforestation. It’s linked to 75 percent of historic deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. Nearly a third of biodiversity loss to date has been linked to animal agriculture. According to some estimates, 27 per cent – more than a quarter – of the Amazon biome will be without trees by 2030 if the current rate of deforestation continues. (source)
Deforestation is a tragedy that plagues our world, and it’s something that can be solved as we have the potential as one human race to initiate large scale tree planting and reforestation, and this example from Senegal is a great example of that.
In a video interview with BBC, Haidar described how the original mangrove forest in Southern Senegal was disrupted in the 80s and 90s as the nation began to build roads which diverted or ended the flow of rivers. “At the time there were no environmental impact studies, of course.” After this he described lumbermen who clear-cut the mangroves, and then goes on to explain that the salt from sea water ended up coming in as a result and poisoning nearby rice fields. This really got peoples attention to the point where they began thinking about replacing what had been lost.
The truth is, the human race has a tremendous amount of potential. All we hear from politicians and mainstream media seems to be nothing but talk, without the implementation of actual solutions. They’ve been doing this for years, yet you have people like Ali out there who are actually getting things done without access to the resources that the world’s elite have access to. If one man can do something as tremendous as this, imagine if the most wealthiest people in the world came together, pooled their resources and started something similar? It seems that ideas are always given, and conferences are always held and initiatives are always started, but nothing ever seems to get done when it comes to the political sphere. Countries agree to enter into certain accords that really do nothing for the planet, and crisis’ like climate change and pandemics, for example, always seem to be used for the elite to somehow profit off of them.
It’s time to ask the question, do our ‘leaders’ really have the intention to change our world for the better? Are our global organizations and politicians put in place to tackle these issues really making planet Earth a priority?
It’s hard to imagine that we couldn’t change this planet and clean it up in the blink of an eye if it actually were a priority.
If we can shut down the planet for months due to an outbreak, why can’t we do the same to make sure everybody is fed? Why can’t we do the same to spark a massive global reforestation campaign? Why are there so many barriers and obstacles to implementing solutions that can help change our world? The solutions are abundant and available, so one should ask themselves, if the solutions to our problems aren’t the issue, what is? Something to think about…
In the latest White House press conference regarding the novel coronavirus, President Trump and his team predicted that, with the current data available, between 100,000 and 200,000 may die from Coronavirus.
Are we doing the right thing here? How accurate is the date, do we have enough data? Why haven't we taken these measures before for previous outbreaks and already existing coronaviruses that infect millions of people every single year?
In one of Donald Trump’s latest press conferences, it was suggested that up to 200,000 American citizens will die from the new coronavirus. The briefing included projections between 100,000 and 200,000, as a possible best-case scenario, and indicated that they are working hard and that they can end up with a number below one hundred thousand if everything goes well. You may be thinking that one hundred thousand and two hundred thousand deaths out of three hundred and twenty seven million Americans is nothing, and in a sense, compared to other viruses and diseases that are circulating out there, you’re right. The difference with the coronavirus, however, is that the deaths are accumulating in such a short period of time.
That being said, the world, as well as America, has been through major pandemics before, with the last one receiving major media attention being the swine flu. This particular strain of the flu virus infected 1.4 billion people around the world, and in one year took approximately 60,000 American lives. The flu alone is responsible for up to 70,000 deaths every single year in America alone. In fact, a large portion of this with a flu virus, prior to the new coronavirus, already have some sort of coronavirus infection within them. (source)
Some doctors and scientists around the world are raising red flags and calling into question the measures that are being taken as a result of the new coronavirus. Claiming that there is unnecessary panic and hysteria going on. For example, Dr. Martin Dubravec, an allergist-immunologist, wrote an article for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons published on March 29th, in it he states the following in an attempt to provide people with perspective.
Of all the deaths reported in the United States as of today, only 2 have been in patients under 18 years of age. Currently, our death rate (deaths/confirmed cases) has been as high as 2.3% and as low as 1.1% over the past 2 weeks. The President’s COVID-19 Taskforce estimated that as many at 1/1000 New Yorkers may have the virus. If this were projected to the entire United States (population 328,239,523), then the total number of COVID-19 would be approximately 328, 239 and deaths from COVID-19 (1.8% death rate) at 5,909. Even if this ends up being wrong by 1,000 percent, the death rate would still be 59,000, i.e., within range of the estimates for influenza deaths. You can look at it in another way. 98% of people who get COVID-19 fully recover!
As of today (March 29, 2020) there are 123,828 confirmed cases and 2229 deaths (1.8% death rate) from COVID-19 in the United States. Compare that with the influenza estimates so far this year: 29,000 deaths! And the flu season is not yet over, with the CDC estimating as many as 59,000 will die of influenza by May of this year.
The CDC estimates a death rate of 7.4% for influenza like illnesses and pneumonia this year. This death rate is similar to previous years. Who in the media is discussing this? (source)
Coronaviruses have been in existence for a number of years, they infect tens of millions of people every single year worldwide and also contribute to their deaths. It appears that the novel coronavirus will be no different, but I don’t have a crystal ball.
paper recently published in The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents titled “SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data” claims that the problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably being overestimated. (source)
In the recent White House briefing where the president provided the White House’s estimates, Dr. Deborah Leah Birx, an American physician and diplomat who specializes in HIV/AIDS immunology, vaccine research, and global health who is currently serving as the Coronavirus Response Coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, stated that there is not a shortage of ventilators in New York City, as claimed by multiple mainstream media outlets, like CNN. This is also confusing, to see these comments in a White House Press conference directly contradict what mainstream media outlets are reporting. Not to say hospitals are not overwhelmed right now, but mainstream media also using hospital footage from Italy and claiming it’s from New York further contributed to the distrust people have of mainstream media.
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history recently shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus. Bhakdi created a YouTube channel on March 18th, and has since posted four videos that have received more than one million views, total, in a very short span of time. Based on his reasoning, the current measures being put in by global governments are unnecessary and “draconian.” You can watch his last video, which was in the form of a letter written to the German Chancellor, here. If you can’t understand German, be sure to turn on the English subtitles.
Implementation of the current draconian measures that are so extremely restrict fundamental rights can only be justified if there is reason to fear that a truly, exceptionally dangerous virus is threatening us. Do any scientifically sound data exist to support this contention for COVID-19? I assert that the answer is simply, no.
Dr. Wolfgang Wodargm, a well known pulmonologist sharing his thoughts on the new coronavirus. In it, he questions the current lockdown measures being taken by governments worldwide. You can watch that video and read more about it here. Again, if you can’t understand German, be sure to turn on the English subtitles.
These sentiments also echo those of three Stanford professors of medicine who recently shared their expert opinion that extraordinary claims require extraordinary data. You can read more about that specifically, here.
Will Donald Trump and his staff be correct? Will the death toll in the United States be no higher than 200,000. We have yet to see. It should be noted that models are always very inaccurate, and new data is constantly coming in that are changing the projections.
For the most part, it seems that the measures we are taken and have may not be warranted, but is it better to be safe than sorry, or is something else going on here? Just simply suggesting that something else could be taking place will have ‘fact-checkers’ all over one’s platform, censoring it and also flagging it as ‘false news.’
According to Dr. Ron Paul. people should ask themselves whether the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic. He was flagged by fact-checkers for simply sharing his opinion.
Nonetheless, we have provided many tools to not only move beyond fear, but to increase your immune system with food, breathwork and quality supplements. We have also put out some of our latest content o help people shift conversations away from a far narrative and into one where we can question our reality and how we can effectively change it.
