Move over "Climate Change"
5G is a greater boon to business
I'm reminded of my all-time second favourite joke (here's my all-time favourite):
A priest, a minister and a rabbi walk into a bar and the bartender says ...
(See bottom of page for the punchline.)*
This is a continuation of my earlier post: What You Don't Know ...
Yessirreebob; there's no "cap and trade" here; just lots of stuff to sell, and much more affordable than compulsory electric vehicles:
RadiationHealthRisks: 50 Products To Protect Yourself From RF Radiation
Still, this doesn't prove that 5G, or even 4G, is a health problem, or does it? Have things been admitted to manufacturers that regular folk will not be told of -- officially, that is?
Never you mind; there are plenty of website advisories (and solutions) -- none of which advocates wearing vests and marching in the streets -- though, come to think of it, this is one case in which a modified kind of vest might be useful to help protect one's vital organs.
As it is, the following website sells an electric meter that can alert you when you're in danger of being over-cooked.
ElectricSense: 5G Radiation Dangers
(Lili Marlene [YouTube] will have to wait for her soldier lover somewhere else.)
Okay, here's a site that at least hints people ought to get organized against the 5G scourge:
Health Risk: Citizens Push Back On 5G Towers In Moraga, Calif
One of the organizers is a woman whose husband developed a cancer in the very ear to which he had held his cell phone since 1986. And that was during older versions of connectivity.
ScienceBlog: Half of us will hear the words “you have cancer” at some point in our lives
But the good news is that, with agonizing treatments, "one can survive for up to 10 years or more".
MedicalNews: Are X-rays really safe?
Needless to say that a lot of money is being made with the production of cancer detecting machines and treatments. Cancer clinics are obviously seduced into shopping for them, but then they have to actually use them in order to recover the cost ... well, you get the picture.
They seem not to mind taking a chance that you might not recover your health.
Which brings to mind a question I would ask of the kids protesting "climate change". There are two horrible things that cell phones contribute to: one is plastic pollution, and the other may well be cancer. Why are you still using "smart" phones, and where will you dispose of yours when daddy buys you a new, snazzier one?
Another question I'd like to see answered is: who paid for those professional-looking banners the protesting kids are carrying? Spontaneous protests are usually scribbled on cardboard. Was it somebody like a Soros, maybe?
I do acknowledge young Greta's astounding organizational skills and her determination, but did she really think of this all by herself, or was she coached? And if so, by whom?
Okay, I realize that was a bit off-topic.
There are protest groups forming now against 5G pollution:
SafetyNetwork: How to oppose 5G “small cell” towers
The baby diapers thing is ... I can't find a strong enough pejorative for it. Who in their right mind would wi-fi their own baby? Nobody. In other words they are out of their minds, period. Even if 5G were safe, they are still whacko. Babies let you know when they need their diapers changed. End of story. No, not end of story. Social Services should come and take that baby to some place where its parents can't treat her/him like an electronic gizmo! And if governments can mandate seat belts and car seats, they can surely mandate a ban on the Internet of Diapers!
5G is designed to further enrich the technology moguls. I have no particular beef against Huawei's CFO personally. She is no doubt a spectacular brain and business woman and I doubt that the US had any legitimate reason to demand her extradition, unless it's to forcefully pick her brain so that the CIA can gain its accustomed control of Internet traffic. What concerns me, however is ... well, the technology - and how humans are being removed from the picture in the grand scheme.
If you haven't read Ayn Rand's dystopian novella "Anthem" (1937), now might be the time. There is a word that is forbidden in a future society where technology has crashed and burned. I won't tell you what it is, but Wikipedia blurts it out. (Notice I'm not providing the wiki link?)
The book is now free. Here are a couple of places to read/download it:
Prophetic, perhaps, are the earliest words in the book:
Personally? I spent the last 10 years or so of my working life as a tech dweeb, a contract worker for a group of consultants, maintaining their computers and other office equipment, their digital library and their contract files, and making trouble-shooting house calls on the side in downtown Ottawa. So one might think I would be gung-ho on all of these amazing technological advances.
But scratch an intelligent computer buff and you may find that s/he is not keen on wireless. The cable guy who wired my apartment for Internet was happy to talk with me about his own reservations regarding privacy and Windows, etc. (We both are Linux enthusiasts.) He was more than happy to reel off a long stretch of cable for me that would traverse my living room to where my desk and computer are located. Yes, my own Internet connection is wired, as is my mouse, my keyboard, and my printer.
Speaking of printers: they don't come with USB cables nowadays because they are designed to operate wirelessly, so few people realize that they can buy an inexpensive USB cable at a computer store so that the printer can be wired (that is, as long as printers continue to come with USB ports installed, as my recently purchased cheap little Canon did). In fact, if you're replacing an older printer, you might find a USB cable wasting away in your junk box.
And that's all she wrote today.
