“ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE RECORDED”: What is surveillance really all about?

Two years ago I wrote an article about surveillance, censorship and privacy because I had become quite alarmed about the blatant attack on privacy and freedom that was taking place. You can read that article here. Since then there has been a drastic escalation in both the amount and the types of surveillance being forced on the population – 99.99% of whom are largely innocent of any crime. In my own life I have experienced some deeply troubling developments and so I have been moved to write an update. I hope this article is helpful and informative and I trust that it helps to open people’s eyes about what the surveillance revolution is really all about. Hint – it’s not about catching “the terrorists”!

Today I was in a Woolworths supermarket in regional Australia. At the self-checkout I was confronted with a bold new sticker which literally yelled at me “ALL TRANSACTIONS ARE RECORDED”. Shocked, I looked around and saw that all of the self-checkout screens had the same offensive sticker. WoolworthsI asked the supervising attendant what the sticker meant. She replied “it means that all transactions are recorded”. Wow, that was so helpful. Trying my very best to be patient, I clarified “exactly what is recorded about the transaction?”. And then the propaganda began to gush… “everything is recorded”… “account details”… “personal information”… “it always has been”… “it’s required by law”… “those stickers have always been there”… “by choosing to use a credit card you give us your details by choice”… etc. I was utterly shocked by the intolerant and aggressive tone that accompanied the propaganda, not to mention the blatant lie that the sticker had “always been there”. When I raised this seemingly obvious point she became even more aggressive and asserted that the stickers had indeed always been there. Something in me said “No. No more”. And I refused to allow her to get away with this aggressive campaign of shameless lies.

The only reason I was at Woolworths in the first place is because I recently discovered that my local IGA is in fact not actually “I” (as in “Independent”), so I have reluctantly returned to Woolworths in protest. I discovered that what I knew as Independent Grocers Association (IGA) is in fact now called Independent Grocers of Australia (still IGA) and it is owned by Metcash. I discovered that by-and-large each supposedly “independent” IGA franchise has little control over the stock they carry. The vast majority of product lines they carry and the stock levels they carry are decided by the warehouse managers at Metcash. My recent email inquiry to Metcash about this contradiction in their advertising campaign remains unanswered.

Propaganda

But I digress. Back to the propaganda campaign.

The supervising attendant’s manager was called and promptly appeared. They could be related. In this town they probably are.

The supervising attendant’s manager’s manager was called. The store manager no less. A very decent man who, after initially taking the same line as his subordinates – “by law we must retain and store your information for seven years” – did a magnanimous job of getting the answers I was after. When I requested to view the Woolworths policy and procedure documents outlining the government legislation that necessitated such privacy breaches as well as the documents outlining how staff are to be trained to implement the program, Mr Manager disappeared into the bowels of the store. Several phone calls later and many searches of Woolworths policies later he conceded that they were in the wrong. Whilst ripping the offensive sticker off my self-checkout screen Cash(where I had already paid for my shopping with CASH) he admitted that Woolworths had no right to store and retain my personal details. The store had apparently misinterpreted the initiative known as “Wave One”. The stickers were meant to be placed on staff-operated screens and to be seen by the checkout personnel only. “Wave One” is apparently a new Woolworths loss prevention program – to prevent cash being stolen from checkout tills by checkout staff.

Always been there, eh?

Stickers were ripped off screens.

The aggression vanished.

I was given a box of chocolates and a $20 gift voucher for the inconvenience.

But you know what? I don’t buy it. I can’t believe it. They were all so certain of the meaning of the stickers. That it was about storing the details of every transaction – credit card numbers; bank account details; items purchased. And they were so sure that “it has been government policy for twenty five years” to store the details of every transaction. The only thing that has changed is that “now we have to tell you that we are doing it”. This is the scary part: the aggressive totalitarian surveillance propaganda just spewed out of them automatically and it was only because I asked for evidence of their claims that they retreated and stopped snarling at me with salivating bared teeth.

What if I hadn’t protested? What if, like most people, I just accepted their surveillanceCensorship propaganda? What if I just accepted that they had a right to record and store my personal information and there was nothing I could do about it? Clearly everyone around me was doing that. The looks, the headshakes and general embarrassment told me that I should just shut up and get on with my day. The level of aggression and intolerance and discomfort told me to stop “questioning”. Stop “making a scene”.

Stop… making sense.

I imagine I will be waiting a long time for the Woolworths “Wave One” documents I requested. They have my email address but I won’t be holding my breath. “Wave One” of what I wonder? Will “Wave Two” be the actual implementation of such an aggressive surveillance policy? Is “Wave One” just a trial run to see how people will react to it?

(UPDATE 19/10/2017:  I was recently in another Woolworths supermarket in a different town in regional Australia and guess what? The same stickers were plastered on all of the self-checkout screens. Deja vu. What are the chances that two managers from two different stores have misinterpreted the “Wave One Loss Prevention Program” in exactly the same way? Pretty slim to none would be my answer. So I now have good reason to believe that my gut reaction was correct – “Wave One” is a trial run of an aggressive privacy-destroying surveillance program.)

Orwell. That’s what I keep coming back to these days. More and more. Orwell. 1984. It was no ordinary novel. Power. Control. Fear. And we are living it in Australia in 2017.

Since I wrote that first article on surveillance two years ago I have been the target of surveillance in my own home. My house has been broken into several times with nothing stolen. Locks have mysteriously broken. Electrical appliances have been interfered with. I have evidence that my movements are under surveillance. Text Surveillance1messages have been intercepted and interfered with. My computer has been accessed remotely. My email files have been altered and a program has been installed that can re-direct my incoming messages, and reply to my messages before deleting them – possibly before I read them. I recently found a device that appeared to be a bug or transmitter of some sort. I didn’t have my glasses on at the time and I just presumed it was part of my son’s electronics project, so after handling it I left it in the box where I found it. It was a small white plastic device with two or three tiny aerials coming out of it, in a miniature zip-lock plastic bag. When I questioned my son about it later that day, he denied any knowledge of the device. I went looking for it to show him, only to discover that it had vanished. I turned the house upside down in a frenzy looking for it but eventually I had to concede that it was gone.

Therefore, I had to face the fact that someone had broken into my home and removed the device that afternoon when I went out to pick up my son from school.

Therefore, I had to face the fact that someone was watching my home and monitoring my movements.

As these incidents have mounted so has my dismay. Why me? Why am I such as threat? I’m such small fry. In the scheme of things I’m a nobody in the world of alternative journalism – or “fake news” as it is now called. There are so many other highly successful independent journalists and publications who reach hundreds of thousands of people with their work. I’ve written five articles (read them here) and I publish information on a Twitter account which hardly anyone reads because of the restricted reach algorithm that was applied to it shortly after I started it. Ditto for the Facebook page I abandoned a few years ago.

Truth5

Five articles. A largely inactive Twitter account and a totally inactive Facebook account. That’s it. And I’m being treated like a dangerous underworld criminal.

Many of my friends and associates have distanced themselves from me. Business relationships and transactions inexplicably go sour and are often destroyed for no apparent reason. People seem unusually suspicious and avoidant of me. The only people who still contact me voluntarily are the ones who don’t do social media of any kind. And I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

I eventually came up with several explanations for this harassment. One is that I’ve been targeted by an asshole with too much time on his hands who has worked out that I do not entirely practice what I preach when it comes to privacy and surveillance. He’s getting some sort of sick kick out of showing me how easy it is for him to access my home and my computer, making me look like a fraud for promoting privacy in this era of surveillance. But that doesn’t explain the destruction of my personal and business relationships.

Alternatively, maybe I’m a randomly chosen TI (targeted individual) ie. the random victim of covert electronic surveillance and harassment. This is an increasing global phenomena and more information can be found about it here, here, here and here. Women are far more likely to be the victims of such harassment, but considering that I found the device in my son’s room he may be a target too. The other possibility is that I am/we are non-random targets of covert electronic surveillance and harassment ie. it is being done because of who we are. I was reluctant to go with this option because it’s a pretty out-there thought to think – “I’m being surveilled by ASIO or MOSSAD or the NSA because I write articles about the New World Order in my spare time” or “Maybe it’s because I was in Moscow in 1991 during the Gorbachev coup” or “My son is being surveilled because his grandfather had something to do with ASIO and they tend to recruit nepotistically, don’t they?“. Yeah, thoughts like that are a recipe for being locked up.

Truth6

Then a few days ago I had the a-ha moment I’ve been searching for. I stumbled across this eye-opening interview by Abby Martin about the Deep Web. The Deep Web contains a small encrypted online communication network called the Dark Web or Dark Net. It is an encrypted space offering anonymised private communication. I wrote about the Dark Net, encryption and anonymising software in my article two years ago and made reference to them (and other methods for maintaining your privacy and freedom) in my very amateur unrehearsed one-take You Tube clip here. Martin’s interview outlines how so-called national security organisations such as the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) are highly threatened by individuals who develop and promote such privacy methods because it gives the innocent public avenues for conducting private communication – away from the spying eyes of the government. Outrageous precedent-setting prison sentences have been handed down to people like Barrett Brown, Ross Ulbricht and Aaron Swartz who have developed and promoted methods for circumventing totalitarian anti-privacy surveillance imposed by the state.

And it suddenly dawned on me why someone seems to want to know what I’m up to – because I promote ways of maintaining privacy and freedom, and I give my readers the ability to access the truth. And these are the things that are most threatening to the powers that be. In my original article on surveillance I actually showed my readers how to access methods to maintain their privacy and freedom, and on my Twitter page I give my readers access to sources who disseminate truth. And because privacy and freedom and truth are antithetical to surveillance and antithetical to state-sponsored totalitarian control of the population, I am now apparently a ‘tFreedomhreat’. If people knew the truth about surveillance they certainly would not be begging the government for more of it to protect them from ‘the terrorists’. As I stated in my article two years ago –

“Spying on innocent people is clearly a pretty lazy, unsophisticated and ineffective approach to national security. Clogging up security storage networks with vast amounts of information on innocent people only hinders an agency’s ability to focus on any actual terrorists due to the massive information management burden it creates. It’s obvious that the extent of surveillance we now deal with on a daily basis is not really about catching “the terrorists” at all.  It’s increasingly about monitoring everyone’s movements. Monitoring what we do, where we go, who we associate with, and most disturbingly it’s about monitoring the flow of information. Recent changes to the policies of government minions Facebook and Google indicate that these corporations have actually taken the next step. They are now controlling the flow of information.”

Since I wrote this passage we have seen the rapid escalation of online surveillance and censorship to prevent so-called “fake news”.  This is what I meant back then by “controlling the flow of information”. In other words, denying access to ‘unauthorised’ information; forcing a particular version of events on people; telling people what ‘the truth’ is; controlling what people can know; influencing what people believe.

It’s a form of mind control.

And that’s what surveillance is about. That’s why I’ve been targeted. Control. Control of people. Their thinking. Their behaviour. Control of their entire lives. Surveillance is about keeping the public dumbed-down, fearful, powerless, too afraid to think for themselves, and unable to identify the truth. We used to call it igRebellionnorance or stupidity and it was a much-maligned state of being. But according to my former friends and the shoppers in the regional Woolworths store I was in today, it’s now highly encouraged. In the past we used to make up our own minds about issues. Now groupthink is forced upon us through fear-laden war porn and propaganda from monopolised media outlets, as well as through new phenomena such as social media, ‘political correctness’, targeted advertising and ‘advertorials’, and politicised school/university curricula. The intrusion of power-hungry corporations into our lives under the guise of ‘knowing what’s best for you’ because ‘experts know best’ and ‘the research proves it’ is particularly insidious and confusing for most people. I spent many years in academic research and I know damn good and well how easy it is to conduct fraudulent research in order to get the results you want. The non-disclosure agreements that researchers must sign ensure that the public is never alerted to dodgy methodology or ‘inconvenient’ outcomes.

So this is the sad and sorry state of affairs in 2017. As I have discovered, if you dare to step out of ignorance you will be ostracised, treated with suspicion, and potentially become the victim of covert surveillance and harassment. If you want to ‘fit in’ and not draw attention to yourself then don’t think for yourself and always believe what ‘authorised’ sources tell you to believe. Don’t rock the boat and don’t question authority. And above all, don’t engage in any behaviour that even remotely resembles the promotion of freedom and truth.

Is this really the future you want for your kids?

The Panama Papers: The Bigger Picture

I could be wrong. But the current global tax evasion drama has all the markings of a manufactured Problem-Reaction-Solution ‘scandal’ used to manipulate the public for geopolitical gain. Whilst I’m not questioning the quality of the investigation or the facts contained in the leaks, I certainly am questioning important aspects of the leaks. Who leaked this information? What do they have to gain from leaking this information? And why now? After decades of tax-free foundations and offshore tax havens, why bother to alert the public now? As far as I’m concerned the globally-coordinated release of the Mossack Fonseca “Panama Papers” reeks of a well-timed strategic geopolitical manoeuvre.

Propaganda

Do you think it’s a coincidence that here in Australia we are currently in the middle of an emotional class-driven ‘debate’ on tax reform? Do you believe it’s a coincidence that only recently the issue of corporate tax evasion was dangled in front of us by the government? And do you really believe that it’s just a coincidence that Four Corners aired their Panama Papers expose on the same day that the whole scandal hit the headlines globally? See the episode here. The journalists and politicians involved in the Four Corners expose have clearly known about these leaks for months and there has obviously been a planned program of ‘release’ to the public, worldwide. The leaks occurred a year ago so this information has been circulating under the radar for a year, and suddenly they dump it on the public expecting us to believe it’s a fresh new scandal? I don’t buy it. Soros1All throughout the hearings into tax avoidance last year and all throughout the current debate on tax reform, these leaks have been known about by our politicians. And the smoking gun that tells us there is another layer attached to this? Look closely at who is being singled out in the media coverage of the Mossack Fonseca leaks: Enemies of the Western elite. This comes as no surprise when one looks at who funds the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) – the organisation handling the leaks. Open Society Foundations is a major financial backer of ICIJ. It is one of George Soros’ foundations. If you are unfamiliar with George Soros, he has evil flowing through his veins. Like Zbigniew Brzezinski, he can generally be found behind the scenes making strategic moves on the geopolitical chessboard. You can get an idea of Soros’ objectives here. Another backer is the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) – the agency supposedly responsible for administering civilian foreign aid. They’ve been linked to the CIA and you can get an idea of their agenda here. When you dig a bit deeper you find more members of the global elite funding the ICIJ – Ford Foundation, Carnegie Endowment, Rockefeller Family Fund, W K Kellogg Foundation. It’s a veritable who’s who of the global elite. It really does cast a grim shadow on any claims of ‘independence’ made by the ICIJ.

Unsurprisingly, not one prominent American or Israeli is mentioned in the release. However we keep hearing “Putin” and “Assad” over and over, Brzezinskibut when you read the information closely the people involved are associates of Putin and Bashar-al-Assad’s cousin. Putin and Assad are not mentioned once in the release. Guilt by association doesn’t stand up in a court of law but it does stand up in the court of public opinion. And that’s all that matters these days. Mainstream media (MSM) have perfected the art of manipulating public opinion to blindly and unknowingly support global corporate and geopolitical agendas. Most people haven’t got a clue what’s really going on in the world but they certainly can repeat, parrot-fashion,  the op-ed version of every current scandal.

Another example of the real intent behind this apparent ‘data dump’ is that Iceland’s Prime Minister gets a prominent mention in the scandal. Why? Who cares about Iceland for heaven’s sake? Most people are unaware that Iceland recently fought and won against their corrupt central bankers. Most people don’t know this because the MSM failed to report on this significant development in sovereignty. The corrupt bankers were jailed for heaven’s sake but it wasn’t reported in the Western press. The international banking cartel and Western elite don’t want people to know about what happened in Iceland but they most certainly do want revenge on Iceland’s PM for what he did to them. As far as I’m concerned this latest manufactured scandal is a ramping up of the attack by Western elite on their enemies to further implement their totalitarian agenda. It’s just another in a long line of 9/11-style events designed to instil fear and hatred in people. Whenever there is an event like this always ask yourself, cui bono? Who benefits? And take note of the fallout. You’ll eventually see the pattern. It’s NEVER the people who benefit. It’s ALWAYS big government and big business who benefit, and the people ALWAYS lose more of their privacy, freedom and way of life.

RoundTableThe two main avenues being used to achieve this totalitarian agenda are Terrorism and Climate Change/Global Warming. Terrorism is the method of choice of the Right, using surveillance and censorship to take our privacy and freedoms. Climate Change/Global Warming is the method of choice of the Left, taking our property rights and way of life in the name of Sustainable Development. So they suck all of us in, irrespective of political persuasion. In one way or another we have been primed into believing that we must surrender our rights for the ‘greater good’. And this latest scandal is a particularly disturbing ramping-up of the elite globalist agenda.

Most people are in debt. Quite a lot of debt. We are feeling the pinch of a contracted economy on the brink of collapse. We are stressed and ripe for emotionally-driven attacks on our already-precarious quality of life. Now that we in Australia have been primed to revile wealthy tax cheats by the recent government/media collaboration on tax evasion, we are now faced with the same problem on a global scale. It’s a bit overwhelming isn’t it? This is the reaction part of manufactured Problem-Reaction-Solution projects. The problem of greedy elitists cheating the good people of the world out of national revenue creates an emotional reaction. And if the last few years of my personal research serves me well, the solution will soon begin to appear in op-eds and talkback chatter all over the Western world.

There’s been rumblings for some time now about a United Nations (UN) global tax. It’s been touted as the solution to tax evasion, but to date there hasn’t been a loud enough cry for help from ‘global UNGlobalTax
citizens’. Well, hey presto! Here’s the ‘Pearl Harbour’ of tax evasion, folks. Here’s the final straw for those of us in dire financial stress who are sickened by the greed and injustice evidenced by the Panama Papers. The call for global taxation will now have billions of supporters begging the UN to bring ‘equality’ to the planet. Yes, in times of trouble we all turn to a Saviour to ease our worries. And mark my words, the UN is waiting in the wings to implement the final leg of their global Socialist dictatorship. A global tax grid is the final cog in the wheel of Global Governance. Complete control of the world’s people, land and money. Everything. See more herehere and here.

The UN already controls our way of life through planning policies implemented via our local governments. Have you tried to build anything recently? Are you a farmer? Have you tried to get a dangerous tree cut down, legally? Then you’ll know all about UN planning policies. These policies came out of the 1992 UN Earth Summit conference we know as ‘Rio’. The ‘Programme of Action’ developed from the summit was called ‘Agenda 21’ but it is known by various titles depending where you live. In the US it is generally known as ‘Local Agenda 21’  or ‘Smart Growth’ or ‘Smart Cities’ but anything endorsed by Bill Clinton’s ‘President’s Council on Sustainable Development’ (PCSD) is an implementation of Agenda 21. You can learn more about Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development hereAgenda21
In Australia we have lagged behind the US a little, so the tarnished reputation of Agenda 21 in the US has meant that we do not use that term here. In fact whenever the term Agenda 21 is used by anyone making inquiries about UN policies they are immediately ridiculed as being a ‘conspiracy theorist’ and told “Agenda 21 does not exist”. Well folks, my 348 page printed hard copy certainly exists as does this digital copy here. Examples of Agenda 21 in Australia include ‘Urban Growth NSW’ (more information here), the proposed “stack and pack” developments over Sydney railway stations (see more here) and the proliferation of high density housing along suburban railway lines. Our farmers know all about Agenda 21 through their battles over property rights and water rights. And with other policies such as the 1975 Lima Declaration the UN are progressively destroying strong western democracies in order to “equalise” the world, ie. enforced socialism. The Lima Declaration is a blueprint for the transfer of technology, tools and jobs to developing nations. As a result Australia has lost 90% of our agricultural and manufacturing industries. See more here.

So what does all this have to do with the Panama Papers? It shows how the UN quietly bullies its way into our lives in the name of justice and equality only to destroy our way of life for the “greater good”, and the Panama Papers scandal reeks of the type of geopolitical strategy used to justify such UN intervention. Gro Harlem Brundtland and Maurice Strong (dec), Agenda21GreenIsRedthe two driving forces behind the creation of the UN ‘Sustainable Development’ behemoth, have instilled a fierce Socialist agenda at the UN. Volumes could be written about these characters but to get to the point – Brundtland is the former Vice-President of the World Socialist Party (Socialist International) and Strong had close ties to the Canadian Socialist Party and Communist China. Their Socialist/Communist ideals permeate UN policies and practices. Global taxation is simply the feather in the UN cap of socialist Global Governance. The ultimate UN goal of transferring wealth from rich countries to poorer ones will be handed to them on a sliver platter if we all call for global taxation.

Do not fall for this propaganda. Educate yourselves on how the media manipulates your beliefs and emotions. Educate yourselves on how forces behind the scenes manipulate world events and sovereign governments. And most of all, educate yourself on the United Nations and what they really stand for. Stop relying on MSM accounts of world events and start including some dedicated independent journalists in your research. Several relevant examples can be found here, herehere and here.

Global Governance

Global Governance is a stated goal of the UN. In short it is the dissolution of sovereign nations and their national borders, with the introduction of a global cashless currency and global taxation. And the emphasis is on cashless – see more here.  The creation of the European Union (EU) and their currency, the Euro (€), was one of the first steps towards this goal. The proposed North American Union (NAU) and their currency, the Amero, is the next step. Last year the UN employed the Pope to push its climate change agenda in his Encyclical – see it here. You’ll remember that his solution to climate change was global governance; only a global government can “control” the corporations who are uncontrollably polluting the planet with CO2. Now we have a global tax evasion scandal and you can bet your bottom dollar that global taxation will be pushed as the only solution to “control” these individuals and corporations and their uncontrollable greed. What you need to remember is that tax minimisation in off-shore tax havens is completely legal. The only thing that global taxation will eradicate is the financial freedom of innocent good people like you and me. Just as it was planned to do.

The Silencing of Climate Change Dissent

The politics of climate change hit me square in the face last week. BOOM! Right between the eyes. And I really wasn’t expecting it.

I know that whenever I write about climate change it makes peopleClimateIrony uncomfortable and defensive. It’s a given. All those good people truly believing they are doing the right thing by eagerly repeating the global warming and sustainable development mantras. Truly good people. All without ever doing any actual reading of any literature themselves. Good, but sadly misled. I think the technical term for it is ‘groupthink’.

Anyways, there I was calmly having an exchange with a ‘believer’ over an article he had written about one of those pesky ‘deniers’. As usual the article was nothing more than an ad hominem against an intelligent well informed man – this time it was Mark Steyn – who dares to question climate change/global warming propaganda. In the most extraordinary example of doublethink I have seen for a while the article managed to suggest that Steyn shares David Icke’s views on Reptilians whilst simultaneously printing Steyn’s own words that “David Icke is a weirdo“. DavidIckeAnd I do believe that the author actually got away with it. Sheer brilliance. I am familiar with Icke’s work and I came away from the article feeling that Steyn’s reputation had been tarnished and he was forever associated with Icke’s more radical ideas – ideas that require quite a sophisticated understanding of modern society in order to comprehend them accurately. Edward Bernays would be so proud. Give the man a medal. Pronto. A mind-blowing degree of deceptiveness heretofore unknown by this little chickadee.

But wait. There’s more. Much more. That wasn’t the thing that smacked me out of my naiveté. After a few exchanges I could feel the obligatory ad hominem on me begin to take form. So I calmly and very adult-like stated that “I don’t engage in back & forth personal attack. I just point people to the info which is confronting to read” (quoted verbatim). I had already supplied information on a couple of very good books which outline climate change fraud, presuming that the author and the online publication who published his article would want to investigate. Because that’s what journalists do. That’s what journalists without an agenda do, anyway. Not so for these people. I soon discovered that I had been blocked on Twitter by this publication. A so-called independent Australian news organisation who “supports quality investigative journalism, as well as citizen journalism and a diversity of voices. It believes Australians are short-changed by the mass media — and so it dedicates itself to seeking out the truth and informing the public” (quoted verbatim from their website). Hmmm. And the next day the same publication posted an article on freedom of speech. PROMOTING freedom of speech. Double hmmm.

Truth
These are the types of incidents along the path to wisdom that help us to understand what’s really going on. When you sit back and lazily believe the detritus that spews out every day from the TV and newspapers you don’t have a chance of working it out. But if you actively engage in searching for truth you open the door to epiphanies such as the one I had last week. It was truly a blessing in disguise as it helped me to further get a handle on the disturbing politics of climate change. It’s a subject I care about passionately. Because I’m passionate about the truth. As a child I learned to value the truth.

I grew up in the 70s and 80s. It was such a great time to be a kid. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) hadn’t yet decimated the education system in Australia so we were raised on a diet of tried-and-tested accurate information contained within a politically-neutral curriculum. We were taught critical thinking and useful life skills. We weren’t propagandised with politically-biased issues and told what to think about them. We were taught to gather the facts, analyse the issues for ourselves and make up our own minds. Freedom of thought was business-as-usual.
Genuine environmental issues such as pollution and deforestation were absolutely not part of the curriculum. Yet we Gen-Xers have been enthusiastically using our recycle bins for decades. How can that be? It can be because we were raised to be thinking individuals. Back then we were taught to have a grip on our sense of freedom and our PollutionPplasticown volition in the world. Even without guidance from the United Nations (UN) we could see for ourselves that filling the world with plastic was not viable.

But UNESCO has put an end to critical thinking and freedom of thought. Gen-Y (Millennials) and Gen-Z (iGen) have been raised on a diet of pro-climate change, pro-sustainable development and pro-humans-are-the-problem-not-the-solution. They are ‘global citizens’ who go to UN-funded and run ‘Model United Nations’ conferences where they are taught that the UN will save the world – with their help. And seeing as most kids are genuinely good-at-heart they believe it. Because they have to believe it. To give themselves a sense of having a future worth living they have to believe the hype. They are the saviours who are going to fix the misdeeds of their parents. Because the UN said so.
And as time has marched on it appears that some of us Gen-Xers have fallen for this UN propaganda that holds us all responsible for the impending end of the earth. Some of us have been turned into automatons who just repeat, parrot-fashion, that the world is doomed and anyone who questions it is a traitor to be reviled. And silenced. Without even having a critical thought about the information we are being fed. What went wrong?

I had an appointment recently with an intelligent successful professional Gen-Xer. She apologised for being late, saying that she had a situation at home that needed to be dealt with. She had maggots in the kitchen and her partner told her it was “because of climate change”.

Intelligent and successful.

Maggots in the kitchen.

Climate change.

And apparently we now have climate-induced financial distress, climate-induced war and catastrophic conflicts, a climate-induced explosion in viruses, climate-this, climate-that……it just goes on and on. And on. And very few of us are questioning it. While Al Gore and his already-wealthy cronies are making gazillions out of carbon credits we are all being punished with higher power bills, less property rights, less representation with mega-councils …. all because there is apparently more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than before the Industrial RevClimateFraud2olution. More of a substance that is essential for life on earth. Essential for the growth of trees. Yes, toxic carbon dioxide. The substance that is 4% of what we breathe out every few seconds. The substance that is currently 0.04% of the atmosphere. But they call it ‘carbon’ so people don’t wake up to the fact that they are demonising a harmless, vital substance.

It’s heartbreaking for me to see good people sucked into this global deception. It’s heartbreaking for me to see intelligent people manipulated by greedy insiders and their bizarre global governance agenda. Whilst we good people suffer restrictive ‘sustainable development’ plans and programs, these wealthy powerful global bureaucrats make even more restrictive decisions based on manipulated data and remain completely without oversight. I remain in awe at how mainstream media has been used to manipulate good people into hating those of us who dare to question the climate change mantra. The utter demonisation of individuals who dare to do a basic part of science – to question and test hypotheses – is a frightening step in the wrong direction. ClimateFraudThat the media have managed to brainwash good people into devaluing an integral part of ‘doing science’ – not to mention an integral part of a free and open society – is very troubling. That so-called ‘independent’ media who claim to support a diversity of voices are also leading the way in demonising those of us who question climate change politics is indeed troubling. It’s an assault on freedom. It’s an assault on democracy. It shows just how powerful those behind climate change politics actually are. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 50 years on the planet, it’s that if a person or organisation refuses to openly debate and defend the agenda they are pushing, and they bully you into accepting their position by ridiculing you for questioning it, it certainly doesn’t pass the sniff test. In other words, something stinks.

But the buck stops with us. We are the only ones who can get off our reality-TV-addicted bottoms and actively search out the truth. Up until quite recently I was a ‘believer’. But in the course of my own personal research I came across more and more literature telling me that global warming was a hoax. Initially I was very uncomfortable that some ofReadThinkLearn my favourite independent journalists were ‘deniers’. How could this be? How could he/she get this one so wrong? And then I read some more. And when I came across more information that made me more uncomfortable I read even more. And when the penny finally dropped it rocked my world.

It’s not easy to face the fact that, as George Carlin so eloquently taught us, “the government doesn’t give a f**k about you“. But it’s the truth. A f**k they certainly do not give. It is not a priority of our government to furnish us with accurate unbiased information. See more here. And based on the research I have done over the past few years, it’s even less of a priority for the UN to deliver agenda-free factual information to their ‘global citizens’.

The politics of climate change really are quite disturbing. My experience last week showed me just how deep the deception goes; how quickly the lid is put on someone trying to calmly, respectfully and intelligently share dissenting information. Those of us who have uncovered the truth really struggle for opportunities to distribute information to the wider ClimateChangecommunity. We put all our efforts into social media and blogspots, struggling to retain followers. Once Facebook, Twitter, You Tube or Google register that we are disseminating alternative views we have restricted-reach algorithms imposed on us. Some more seasoned and successful researchers manage to build a following of paid-up subscribers which allows them to produce high quality journalism. My hope is that people will start to wake up for themselves; that the outrageous claims now being made in the name of climate change will be enough for my fellow Gen-Xers’ critical thought to kick back in again. When a lie just keeps getting bigger and more outrageous, there comes a point when it becomes so implausible that we can no longer believe it without question. Maybe it’s not magClimateFraudgots in the kitchen, but maybe by the time we have travel restrictions imposed on us and power restrictions are a daily expectation whilst multinationals continue to profit from the manufacture of unnecessary planet-polluting products such as bottled water and coffee pods, maybe then people might start to question the reality of climate change.

Maybe then they’ll start to use what’s left of their critical thought and democratic rights.
