Is A Carbon Tax What We Really Want?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Carbon Tax (and its sinister partner the Cap-and-Trade market) is the only "solution" that our leaders are proposing for Climate Change.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it not time to question specific 'solutions' to global problems that seem to always benefit the elite, and consider what might be proposed if the health and prosperity of humanity was really the sole concern?

If you are a person who actively supports the implementation of a worldwide carbon tax, it is likely that you have humanity’s best interests at heart. If you have participated in climate marches in order to help speed up the implementation of the carbon tax within your country, you are walking your talk. At CE we certainly appreciate those who take the time and effort to act selflessly in the interests of humanity. Ultimately, we believe that this is an important aspect of how we will improve living conditions on the Earth and actually evolve as a collective.

But let’s get into specifics here. Not about whether or not the science is settled on the matter of carbon emissions being the main cause of global warming, or even if the planet is actually warming–I have extensively questioned the mainstream perception here, here, and here. But for this article, I will assume the science IS settled, and therefore presume your activism is rightly based on your belief that rising levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere will cause catastrophic warming of the planet in the coming years. Let’s get specific about one particular ‘solution’ to the problem, which is the carbon tax.

In supporting a carbon tax, your recommendation is that the citizens of each country should be willing to contribute some more of their own wealth to their government in order to enact their regional or national carbon tax scheme (I’m assuming you realize that all ‘taxes,’ regardless of who they are directly levied upon, eventually trickle down and affect everyday citizens). Another way of saying this is that you are advocating for citizens of the world to be willing to experience an overall decline in their current standard of living in order to implement the global carbon reduction targets of the Paris Accords. This is simple economic math.

How Does The Carbon Tax Work?

First, let’s define what a carbon tax is:

Carbon tax is a form of pollution tax. It levies a fee on the production, distribution or use of fossil fuels based on how much carbon their combustion emits. The government sets a price per ton on carbon, then translates it into a tax on electricity, natural gas or oil. Because the tax makes using dirty fuels more­ expensive, it encourages utilities, businesses and individuals to reduce consumption and increase energy efficiency. Carbon tax also makes alternative energy more cost-competitive with cheaper, polluting fuels like coal, natural gas and oil.

Carbon tax is based on the economic principle of negative externalities. Externalities are costs or benefits generated by the production of goods and services. Negative externalities are costs that are not paid for. When utilities, businesses or homeowners consume fossil fuels, they create pollution that has a societal cost; everyone suffers from the effects of pollution. Proponents of a carbon tax believe that the price of fossil fuels should account for these societal costs. More simply put — if you’re polluting to everyone else’s detriment, you should have to pay for it. (source)

And so, if you support a carbon tax, then you agree that ‘the price of fossil fuels should account for these societal costs.’ And the societal costs are, presumably, a monetary equivalent to the deleterious effects of global warming on humanity. But does the carbon tax actually fulfill your main objective, to save the planet and create a better future for our children? The next series of questions is designed to address this.

Pertinent Questions

1. Are carbon emissions really “pollution”? I believe the above statement is misleading when it characterizes carbon tax as a form of ‘pollution tax,’ wherein CO2 emissions are naturally equated as ‘pollution.’ I feel ‘pollution’ refers to something that has a direct negative effect on life on the planet, that slowly poisons humans, animals and plants that breathe in these substances. Indeed, in the case of plants, CO2 is their oxygen, and CO2 has no harmful effects on living beings. If there is genuine concern for living beings, why has there been no concerted effort to stem the real air pollution factories put out, that cause a haze in some major cities that actually makes it hard to breathe?

2. Does a carbon tax guarantee a reduction of carbon emissions? Quite simply, no. At best, a carbon tax “encourages utilities, businesses and individuals to reduce consumption and increase energy efficiency.” I think it would be more accurate to say that the carbon tax is financial punishment for people and businesses who want to maintain their current standard of living. In most cases, those who can afford the cost of maintaining their standard of living will simply pay the extra money to do so, and, as we have seen so far, CO2 emissions will continue to rise.

The notion that “carbon tax also makes alternative energy more cost-competitive with cheaper, polluting fuels” is another red herring. Corporations and businesses are driven by profit, nothing else. There is no chance that the majority of businesses will adopt the currently available alternative energy sources unless they are proven to be more cost-effective. Does this mean that taxation will increase until companies are essentially forced to adopt alternatives? Likely, if those in charge really press for meaningful reduction of CO2 emissions. Please note, though, that this can bring many companies to the breaking point, where they will have to reduce wages and compromise on working conditions in order to stay in business and continue to make a profit. Does this sound like a solution for the benefit of humankind?

3. Is the carbon tax the only solution available? Certainly not. There are undoubtedly many alternative solutions, including the large-scale cultivation of hemp, a proven carbon-sequestering crop which I speak about here. We just never hear about these. They are never promoted by Big Money. If we pay close attention, we will see that any natural, truly communal solutions to global warming, actions that have a direct impact on human well-being, are not even considered by the authority, let alone studied. Only the carbon tax and it’s even more sinister partner, the cap and trade system, are promoted by the authority. And that’s because there is money to be made for the elite with these solutions.

4. Where does the tax money go? This is the crux of the matter. There is no promise that the tax money collected by governments will somehow find its way to directly benefit the people. And even if there is a promise, it is unlikely that the promise will be kept. Few would disagree that government taxation has been uncovered as a black hole that ultimately enriches the global elite and the corporatocracy and only scraps filter down to the general population. Powerful interests provide money to politicians, and in turn, the politicians give tax money back to those same powerful interests in the form of government contracts. When we support a carbon tax, we support the maintenance and enrichment of a corrupt system.

5. Does a carbon tax represent humanity coming together to create a better future for itself and the planet? The carbon tax is founded in the old-world notion that only fear tactics and the manipulation of individual self-interest can bring about positive change. We will never be able to ‘come together’ as a global community if what we are really supporting is a mechanism that works off of fear and self-interest. It is important to distinguish a true grass-roots movement that comes together spontaneously through individuals who want to create change for the betterment of the human community. Currently, these are movements that not only DON’T get support from Big Money (because there would be no return-on-investment), but are often actively THWARTED by Big Money. It is clear which movements these are, because participants are subtly condemned by the mainstream press. The Yellow Vest movement is an example. The Brexit movement. The ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, at least before it got co-opted. Meanwhile, nothing but praise is heaped on climate activists, gun-control activists, or people raising money to help Western medicine find a cure for cancer. This is because these movements ultimately support the financial elite’s infrastructure and agenda.

The Takeaway

I have spoken to several people I respect who take the attitude that the carbon tax is not ideal, but at least it’s something. That they know the carbon tax leads somewhat to the enrichment of powerful people, but there’s no way around it, as that’s the only way anything gets done in the world. I question that notion. I question people’s acceptance of a very limited, even cynical, view of what humanity is capable of. We are at a time in history where we are ripe for making a shift in what we do and how we see ourselves, where we start to believe that the majority of humanity can be motivated to act purely out of love for one another. This shift will be fuelled by the desire to reach for our individual sovereignty and no longer have global elite ‘leaders’ that control our destiny. When we collectively put more of our time and energy into this new paradigm and less into the old control mechanism that has hung over us all our lives, true solutions to the world’s problems will be readily at hand.

A Video of President Trump Supporting Bill & Melinda Gates’ Vaccine Alliance, Gavi

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Donald Trump/U.S. Government have donated more than a billion dollars to Bill & Melinda Gates' vaccine alliance, called Gavi.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do people still think this is fake news even though it came straight from President Donald Trump? Why do people think one person, like Trump can "save" humanity? Why do we keep giving our power away to other people and expect them to make change?

Politics is a funny thing, if there’s one common theme that can constantly be seen, it’s the fact that throughout the years, presidents and politicians are constantly flip flopping when it comes to their opinion on various topics that are controlled by political policy,  or should I say corporate policy instead? Why do they (presidents and politicians) flip flop so much? Is it because they’ve been entrapped or black mailed in some sort of way? Perhaps threatened in some sort of way to take a particular stance on a particular topic? Are decisions and opinions given simply to appeal to the masses and collect the popular vote? With such a large lack of transparency existing within big politics, why do we even continue to vote and uphold a system that doesn’t seem to be capable of helping our planet, people and all life on it thrive? Why are there so many solutions to our problems that have trouble seeing the light of day? These are important questions to ask ourselves, especially in today’s day and age.

What Happened: Today, Trump has completely reversed his position on some issues, like vaccines, for example. Is this a result of the influence that the “secret government” (Roosevelt) has over the presidency? Who really knows. During his 2016 campaign Trump was quite outspoken about vaccine safety concerns, but since then he has publicly stated how important they are, and he recently gave more than a billion dollars to a vaccine alliance called Gavi that was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. He also inked a deal with Pfizer for 100,000,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine while simultaneously stating that “big pharma” doesn’t like him for lowering drugs prices.

I wrote about this and published an article about it a couple of weeks ago titled  “Trump Gives 1.16 Billion to Bill Gates’ Vaccine alLIANCE & Inks deal with Pfizer of a COVID Vaccine.” As a result, we received a lot of comments on Facebook stating that it’s “fake news” or to simply “trust the plan.” The number of comments on the article claiming that it was “fake news” was quite overwhelming, and most of them obviously Trump supporters.

I am writing this article to let these people know, again, that this isn’t ‘fake news.’ US President Donald Trump “donated more to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to prevent the spread of infectious diseases worldwide.” He did so in a statement of support for Gavi at the public Gavi pledge conference, which was hosted by the United Kingdom, on June 4th. So far, the United States has donated more than $12 billion for the development of COVID-19 vaccines and therapies, and “the U.S. commitment to immunization complements the work of innovators in the United States and other countries who are racing to find a vaccine and treatments for COVID­19.” (source)

Here’s a video clip of Trump talking about his decision, as the headline of this article promotes. Clearly, this isn’t fake news. 

Shortly after this, Trump announced that they will give nearly $2 billion to Pfizer, a big pharmaceutical company, for 100 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that could make its way into the public domain sometime next year.

It really goes to show you how many people simply read headlines without actually reading the article and examining sources for themselves.

Sure, Trump may be playing both sides. He has promoted alternative treatments like Hydroxychloroquine, which was supported by countless doctors, scientists and evidence. He has called the coronavirus pandemic “artificially induced” and more, which many of us in the ‘alternative media’ world would agree with for a number of reasons. But again, he is also simultaneously supporting the vaccine.

Are politicians forced to do and say things they really don’t agree with? Why? What’s going on ?

Has science become politicized?

Why This Is Important: If we write an article about how Trump has been the only president to make any real progress on human and child sex trafficking, we get demonized for being “Trump supporters” which we are not. If we write an article that raises concerns, like the topic discussed in this article, we get demonized for not being a Trump haters” , which we are not.

This is what happens when you look at and write about politics from a neutral perspective without taking sides. The idea that one man or woman in the position of the presidency can make changes our world needs is upsetting to me, because we are constantly giving our power away every four years thinking someone else is going to “take care of the problem.” We look to these people as idols and saviours of humanity, when really we are simply prolonging problems that plague our world by putting power into the hands of people who don’t always have the best interests of humanity at heart, all the time.

The fact that so many people claimed that Trumps donation was “fake news” goes to show just how many people don’t read articles and examine sources. This makes it easy for “fact checkers” and provides more of a justification for governments to censor real information and label it as fake news. Simply reading a headline and then jumping to a conclusion is a huge problem people have today, especially when it comes to information that contradicts ones belief system.

Big politics is a big game, and those who play it have to go up against those who sit above government, a power so great that dozens of presidents and politicians have mentioned it, and most of them in recent history have given in to the will of those who sit above the presidency. Donald Trump, in my opinion, is a difficult person for this group of people, which is why he has been bombarded and demonized by the mainstream media and his opposition with false accusations, like the “Russian hack” for example. All these and more have been an attempt to get the president out of his current position.

As New York City mayor John F. Hylan once said“like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation.” This “little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties … [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.

Again, this doesn’t mean that he is the “solution” or represents the type of change we need. Ultimately, a shift in consciousness is required and humanity needs to begin creating and making decisions from a place of peace and good will, and an elevated level of thinking.

The Takeaway: Everytime I examine big politics, I am amazed as to why humanity continues to play with it and participate in it, thus perpetuating it. Why are we made to feel like our vote actually counts and that one person (president) can make any significant change on the planet? Presidents prior to Trump have been used as celebrity figures. They are marketed and portrayed as idols and bearers of good will, and in many cases a distraction. We are made to believe that our ‘leaders’ are solving and tackling the issues that need to be tackled, but are they? Nothing significant ever seems to get accomplished.  If we can lock down the world and take action for the coronavirus, why can’t we lock down the world and take action for more important things?

Canada Inks Deal With Pfizer & Moderna To Prepare The Nation For “Mass Vaccinations”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Canada recently announced that they signed a deal with Pfizer & Moderna to secure millions of doses of a coronavirus vaccine when it's ready.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is vaccine hesitancy growing? Should the freedom of choice always remain? Are people who refuse made out to be the "bad" ones as a result of mainstream media/government/big pharma perception manipulation?

What Happened: The Canadian government has inked a new deal with pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Moderna to secure tens of millions of doses of the new coronavirus vaccine in 2021, which is still currently in the developmental stages. Procurement Minister Anita Anand recently made the announcement after Pfizer tweeted news of the new deal, stating that “We are increasingly focused on the next stage of our recovery, including preparing Canada for mass vaccinations”

This comes shortly after the U.S. government gave more than a billion dollars to Bill Gates‘ vaccine alliance called Gavi, which was co-founded by Bill & Melinda Gates. President Trump also signed a deal with Pfizer for one hundred million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. You can read more about those stories here.

Why This Is Important: Many people are wondering if the coronavirus vaccine will be mandatory, or perhaps similar to recent mask mandates that multiple governments have put in place in certain areas. In Canada, masks are mandatory when inside many public buildings, and many people are starting to see that these types of mandates may actually become permanent, and also worry that other permanent changes are being put in place that will remain as “then new normal” under the guise of necessity.

 Survey results released on Tuesday from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute found half of Canadians say they have no reservations and are ready to get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as it’s available. But 32 per cent — roughly a third of respondents — say they’d likely wait a while. Another 14 per cent don’t want to get a vaccine at all. This comes from CBC, a major mainstream media organization in Canada. I do have a hard time trusting these numbers, and personally feel that the number of those who do not desire the vaccine may be much greater than 50 percent, but I could be wrong. At the end of the day, mainstream media and poll organizations could easily team up and manipulate numbers, it’s so hard to trust anything that comes from mainstream media given their relationship with corporations and governments. We’ve already seen a great amount of manipulation when it comes to the new coronavirus, as with many other topics over the years.

Are powerful people creating a problem in order to propose a solution? In today’s day and age, this is an important question to ask.

According to Edward Snowden, “Governments around the world are are exploiting the pandemic to monitor us like never before.” He and many others have been pointing out how society is moving fast towards an authoritarian type of existence, and how it’s already here. The enforcement or advocacy of strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom has been here for quite a while, and it’s done in a very clever way, often hiding under the guise of good will, or making people feel that they may be harming others if they do not comply.

This pandemic has been a catalyst for many people to question actions taken by government and if they’re actually in societies best interest. Are governments simply following the will of their masters, without question, like we follow the will of our government? Global chaos seems to be a recipe for change, awareness, and for more people to see through potential lies and manipulation.

Can human beings do better? We have unlimited potential to create a human experience where everyone can thrive. We have solutions, finding them is not the problem, implementing them seems to be the case and solutions that can change our world for the better have long threatened powerful interests and their ability to control the human population.

Is COVID-19 doing what 9/11 did for human consciousness? 

A common theme throughout this pandemic is the ‘waking up’ of humanity. Given the discrepancy that’s existed around the world with regards to categorizing coronavirus deaths when they are not the result of COVID-19, the controversy surrounding masks, an infection fatality rate that is no different from a seasonal flu (read more about that here and here), treatment options that have worked yet have been constantly ridiculed, and the unreliability of the tests used to detect the new coronavirus, many people are asking themselves what’s really going on?

Vaccine hesitancy hasn’t only increased among the citizenry, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, recently emphasized that, “The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines.” She did so at a World Health Organization (WHO) conference on vaccine safety. You find find links to the conference and read more about it here, if interested. She cites multiple studies proving her point.

Doctors and scientists are starting to distrust pharmaceutical companies, and many don’t feel comfortable prescribing certain medications, another point emphasized by Larson at the conference, and the research she cites.

Multiple clinical trials for COVID-19 vaccines have shown severe reactions within 10 days after taking the vaccine. Meanwhile, the US government and Yale University are collaborating in a clinical trial to determine the best messaging to persuade Americans to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, we have to ask ourselves, why is there a digital authoritarian Orwellian “fact-checker” going around the internet censoring any information that contradicts the WHO on health issues? Why are so many scientists and doctors experiencing censorship, and why is mainstream media bringing no attention to what these doctors have been saying? What’s really going on here? How long has our perception of major global events been completely manipulated? Should we not have the right to examine information openly and freely, and determine for ourselves what is and what isn’t and choose, for ourselves, what decisions we desire to make?

Study: Exercising With Mask Induces a “Hypercapnic Hypoxia Environment” – Not Good

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A study published in June 2020 raises some health concerns about people wearing masks while exercising. It also calls into question the ability of masks to stop Covid-19.

  • Reflect On:

    Are the mandatory orders that we are being given from government health authorities really the right thing to do? Why is there such a back-lash for questioning these measures? Should we not encourage questioning and discussion?

What Happened: A recent study published in the Journal Medical Hypothesis titled “Exercise with facemask; Are we handling a devil’s sword? – A physiological hypothesis” claims the following:

Exercising with facemasks may reduce available Oxygen and increase air trapping preventing substantial carbon dioxide exchange. The hypercapnic hypoxia may potentially increase acidic environment, cardiac overload, anaerobic metabolism and renal overload, which may substantially aggravate the underlying pathology of established chronic diseases. Further contrary to the earlier thought, no evidence exists to claim the facemasks during exercise offer additional protection from the droplet transfer of the virus. Hence, we recommend social distancing is better than facemasks during exercise and optimal utilization rather than exploitation of facemasks during exercise.

According to the authors, exercising with facemasks induced as “a hypercapnic hypoxia environment [inadequate Oxygen (O2) and Carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange] . This acidic environment, both at the alveolar and blood vessels level, induces numerous physiological alterations when exercising with facemasks: 1) Metabolic shift; 2) cardiorespiratory stress; 3) excretory system altercations; 4) Immune mechanism; 5) Brain and nervous system.’

Further, poor saturation of haemoglobin would be anticipated due to increased partial pressure of CO2 at higher exercise intensity Fig. 2 demonstrates the extreme right shift of the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve, which would be higher than that expected during exercise. This acidic environment would unload O2 faster at the muscle level, but due to higher heart rate and reduced affinity at the alveolar junction, the partial pressure of O2 would substantially fall, creating a hypoxic environment for all vital organs.

In the figure below, the authors present a dissociation curve that “is showing the extreme right side shift with the carbon dioxide rebreathing (PaCO2) and inadequate available Oxygen (PAO2). Red dotted lines show the right shift of the curve due to exercise without masks (↑PaCO2, PH and temperature). Violet dotted lines show the extreme curve shift during exercise with masks (↑↑↑↑PaCO2, PH and temperature). (For interpretation of the references to colour in this figure legend, the reader is referred to the web version of this article.)”

The authors also point out that “wearing of facemasks to prevent the community spread of the novel Covid-19 is itself debatable, considering the limited evidence on the subject matter. WHO recommends masks only for Covid-19 patients but the usage of masks is morally “exploited” among community individuals.”

This is important to recognize, the use of masks is indeed debatable. Right now, “fact-checkers” are going around the internet censoring and labelling any information that seems to question the efficacy of masks when it comes to Covid-19, or anything that contradicts the WHO organization. Why do voices looking at facts ad science, and providing another perspective get silenced?

The purpose of the paper cited in this article is to explore and question: Does the use of facemasks offer any benefit for ‘social exercisers’ during this pandemic; 2) Does exercising with facemasks alter normal physiological responses to exercise; 3) Does exercising with facemasks increase the risk of falling prey to Coronavirus; 4) How could “social exercisers” combat the physiological alteration?

Here’s another interesting claim by the researchers:

The study concludes:

Exercising with facemasks might increase pathophysiological risks of underlying chronic disease, especially cardiovascular and metabolic risks. Social exercisers are recommended to do low to moderate-intensity exercise, rather than vigorous exercise when they are wearing facemasks. We also recommend people with chronic diseases to exercise alone at home, under supervision when required, without the use of facemasks. Given the identified and hypothesized risks, social distancing and self-isolation appear to be better than wearing facemasks while exercising during this global crisis.

This isn’t the only paper that has called into question the use of a mask. This study, is one of multiple that conveys the idea that they might in fact increase one’s chance of contracting a respiratory infection.

For example,

According to a study published in BMJ Open in 2015,

This study is the first RCT of cloth masks, and the results caution against the use of cloth masks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Further research is needed to inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally. However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masks should not be recommended for HCWs, particularly in high-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.

We have provided the first clinical efficacy data of cloth masks, which suggest HCWs should not use cloth masks as protection against respiratory infection. Cloth masks resulted in significantly higher rates of infection than medical masks, and also performed worse than the control arm. The controls were HCWs who observed standard practice, which involved mask use in the majority, albeit with lower compliance than in the intervention arms. The control HCWs also used medical masks more often than cloth masks. When we analysed all mask-wearers including controls, the higher risk of cloth masks was seen for laboratory-confirmed respiratory viral infection.

According to another study published a year after the one mentioned above,

The physiological effects of breathing elevated inhaled CO2 may include changes in visual performance, modified exercise endurance, headaches and dyspnea. The psychological effects include decreased reasoning and alertness, increased irritability, severe dyspnea, headache, dizziness, perspiration, and short-term memory loss. (source)

There are many examples. Doctors have been making YouTube videos and giving interviews about the same concerns as well. Again, many of these videos and interviews have been deleted from big tech platforms like YouTube.

Why?

Why This Is Important: We are living in a time where simply questioning information that’s dished out to us is becoming harder and harder to do and talk about on the internet – a place where ideas are shared. When something credible opposes a narrative handed to the population via some very powerful people, not only is it censored and often removed, but a mass media campaign of ridicule ensues. Of course, the main strategy used in the mainstream is to call these ideas a “conspiracy theory” and cast doubt. Censorship + Ridicule = massive perception manipulation.

Below is a screenshot of what has happened with our YouTube channel January 1st 2019. We were demonetized and shaddow banned. This is just one example of big tech censorship we have experienced. Our Facebook page has been heavily cut, and we no longer get ranked in Google search. We often joke at the office that, if people knew what we’ve gone through to keep Collective Evolution afloat for the past 11 years they wouldn’t believe it.

This is why we created CETV. Our own platform we created to help us continue doing what we do. CETV is our inner circle membership site that provides news and tools to raise collective consciousness.

We thank everybody who has joined so far, you’ve truly kept CE going!

Why are there a digital authoritarian “fact-checkers” going around the internet and censoring information? Should people not have the right to examine information openly, freely and transparently and decide for themselves what is, and what isn’t, instead of having people in positions of power do it for them? Does this not leave room for mass manipulation of information?

The good news is that the censorship of information has drawn the attention of even more people, and has been a catalyst for some to recognize what’s really going on here.

Our physical rights are slowly being taken away under the guise of good will. Crisis’ like the coronavirus, or terrorism have always been used to do this. Create the problem, propose the solution and make it justified in the eyes of the masses. If we continue down this path and choose to be governed by those who do not have the best interests of humanity at heart, we are going down the path of total and complete population control.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, there is so much controversy and information out there that completely opposes the mainstream media narrative. This information and evidence, once seen, has such a big impact on one’s consciousness and perception of the world we live in. Just like 9/11, this coronavirus incident is serving the collective and sparking more questions about what exactly we are doing here. Why do we live the way we live? Why do we respond the way we respond? Why do we continue to follow orders from those whom we choose to let govern us when it isn’t even clear that their recommendations are for the best interest of humanity?
