Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs a world of lies.


If perchance a post of mine you think extreme

heed this from Kahlil Gibran:

“In battling evil, excess is good;

for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth.

He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath.”


One of my goals is to think and act as if I fear no man’s wrath or deed.

Strange that the UN would publish then delete an article talking about ’The Benefits of World Hunger’. These are the same people that think we should be eating bugs. Good thing it has been archived.

Interesting Conclusions
Mouse In Cheese

(Tom: I think people are best studied directly, rather than studying rats to learn about people. For instance it can be observed that most drug addiction comes from trying to overcome physical or spiritual pain, of which boredom is only a small factor. Nevertheless, some interesting conclusions.)

The first experiment was called “Universe-25“. 4 mice were placed in a mouse paradise, where there was unlimited food and drink and there was no danger at all. In such conditions, mice began to reproduce very quickly. When the number of mice reached 600, competition appeared between the “old“ and “new“ generations. There were the first “rejected“ mice, which got from the others. Males became more passive and females became more aggressive. The population is slowly shrinking. Over time, there appeared handsome males who stopped fighting, fighting for females, they only ate, drank and slept. Such males followed by single females who stopped giving birth, and the rest began to kill cubs. Mice began to practice homosexuality and cannibalism. As a result, 18 months after the experiment began, the last inhabitant of the mouse civilization died. The most interesting thing is that the experiment was called “Universe-25“, because the experiment was conducted 25 times and always ended equally - tragically.

Conclusion In ideal conditions, when the body does not need to use complex behavioral functions for survival, “death of the spirit“ occurs - the degradation that inevitably leads to the “death of body“. Thus, general or personal happiness cannot be the goal of life, it is only a byproduct. Only movement and development as processes is the meaning of life.

The second experiment was conducted on rats. When rats were immersed in conditions of stress, danger and conflict, they began to get sick and quickly died. When rats were given only positive emotions in the form of a comfortable life devoid of negative components, they also got sick and died, but a little later (the results of the previous experiment are confirmed). It has been scientifically calculated that the ratio of positive and negative emotions should be 3 to 1. In such conditions, a living creature feels comfortable and lives longer.

Conclusion Defeat, pain, loss, setbacks, stress are an integral part of life without which life is impossible. What is sane to watch tomorrow? This means to understand that in addition to good events, there will also be bad ones, and this is necessary for human development. But it is better that the proportions of positive and negative in life should be 3 to 1.

The third experiment clearly demonstrated a clear hierarchy in the rat world. 6 rats were placed in a box that had one exit leading into the pool. The pool led to food. As a result, the rats were divided into 4 groups: 2 leaders, 2 known, 1 loner and 1 rejected. Famous people swam for food and gave food to the presenters (after beating), only after the presenters ate, the famous people ate. A lone woman was getting her own food and was able to stand up for herself. The rejected one was offended by everyone, and he ate on garbage. The experiment was conducted 20 times and each time the results were the same - divided into 4 groups. At the same time, even if all 6 rats leading or loners, known or rejected, were placed in the box, again the division of roles took place.

Conclusion There is always hierarchy in society, human equality is a utopia. If you don’t like your social role, fight for your place in the sun, including the option of changing the society. Happiness is being comfortable with your social role in life.

The fourth experiment has proven that addiction can be controlled. 20 rats were placed in a park, which had various walks, tunnels, wheels, houses, swimming pool, long walkways and lots of food. The other 20 rats were kept in traditional cages. The first and second groups were given 2 drinks: one with ordinary water, and the other with sweetened drug solution. The inhabitants of the park drank only water. Even if one of the rats drank water with a drug, they were not addicted, they still preferred to drink regular water. In turn, the cage rats quickly became addicted to the drug. After a while, the rats changed their places. Caged amusement park rats quickly switched to drugs. And the rats that were placed in the park began to drink regular water more.

Conclusion Addictions come to life from monotony. If your life is bright, interesting, you are always in motion and creative search, then you will not need drugs, alcohol, or other addictions. You will still be euphoria from your own life. Escape from routine and boredom, create an interesting life filled with travel, vivid events and interesting projects. Perhaps this is the meaning of life.

Slow sand filter can remove 99.9% of nanoplastics from drinking water
Slow Sand Filter

Microplastics are ubiquitous in the environment and have been detected in marine water, wastewater, and even in drinking water, both bottled and tap water. This has led to concerns about the efficacy of current drinking water treatment processes to remove these contaminants.

In 2019, Eawag and the Zurich Water Works launched a joint project to find out whether the tiniest of particles, measuring less than a thousandth of a millimeter across, actually find their way from lake water into drinking water pipes and therefore into homes, hospitals and restaurants. The team has now published the results in the Journal of Hazardous Materials.

The new study investigated the performance of different techniques when it comes to removing nanoplastics from drinking water. Researchers found that the biologically active slow sand filter was the most effective at retaining nanoparticles – achieving an efficacy level in the region of 99.9%. This was shown both in the laboratory tests and in larger, realistic tests and modeling.

Democracy Is Not Working
Democracy Is Not Working

Once upon a time, when democracy was newly born, we elected people to represent us.

Because they had ideals, a vision and could communicate those well to others some grew to become statesmen..

Later on, those who select the candidates from whom we elect, nominated those who would practice politics rather than be our representatives.

Now we have descended to electing from a choice of people who hold office like crises actors reading from a prepared script handed to them by those who rule from the shadows, caring not what damage they do, looking not at the consequences of their action and taking zero responsibility for them.

It is time for change. We are ready for a new paradigm.

I for one would rather have leaders with a proven track record of successful management rather than those who have been educated to believe there are too many humans on the planet and we need to reduce our numbers.

What life advice do people not take seriously enough?

Saw this online written by Julie Gurner and thought it well worth sharing with you.

10 pieces of life advice I find that people do not take seriously enough:

“Don’t Make Decisions When You’re Angry” - I’ve seen people relapse on drugs, cheat on their spouses, get into physical fights, and quit their jobs simply because they were “angry.” Don’t do it.

“Be Yourself.” - So many people suffer because they feel pressure to be something they’re not. They can feel this pressure from parents, peers, co-workers, friends or even their significant others. I’ve seen women get breast implants because of this pressure, men marry women (when they are actually gay), and people going into careers they hate because it will make someone else happy. Be yourself, because being something else will make you miserable.

“Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.” - This is solid advice for a happy life. Choose your battles, and be able to let the little things go. Once you realize what “big things” are (cancer, financial hardship, etc.), you will wish you focused on the right things.

“Know Your Worth” - When you know your worth, you don’t put up with things that devalue you…and that is *very valuable.* It will impact what you’ll put up with in relationships, in your jobs, and in life. Knowing your worth has the ability to protect you from a lot of life’s struggles - if you act consistently with it.

“It’s Okay to Ask for Help.” - Yes! Do you know how many people I’ve talked to, that wished they would have gotten help earlier? It would have given them back *years* of their life…but instead they waited until they were at an absolute breaking point - losing opportunities, jobs, relationships, sometimes even their kids. Ask for help, and ask for help early.

“Who You Marry is One of the Most Important Decisions You’ll Make.” - Take this one seriously. You will literally have to see this person every day of your life, you will spend more time with them than anyone else…so make it someone uplifting, supportive and wonderfully fitting to you. You will also have a financial future largely impacted by their spending habits, earning, saving ability, etc.. Man or woman, divorce can devastate you emotionally and financially.

“Make Time for People You Love.” - Putting off seeing your grandmother or parents because you wanted to do other things might not seem like a big deal today…but one day it will be.

“The Best Time to Start is Now” - Whether saving for your future or trying to write that novel, start today. Time gets away from us very quickly, and before you know it 20 years have passed and you didn’t do those things you wanted to do. I have seen a lot of people who hold regrets…try not to have them.

“The Best Revenge is Living Well.” - So many people get stuck in grudges and anger that it messes up their own lives - especially emotionally. There is a great saying that states that “anger is something you carry for someone else’s mistakes” and it’s the truth. Leave those who have hurt you in the past, take care of your own needs, and live well. It does you no good to do otherwise.

“Treat Others the Way You’d Want to be Treated.” - This is certainly advice we don’t take seriously enough. If we all treated others how we’d wish to be treated, the world would certainly be a much better place for us all.

IQ Alone Is Not Enough

According to psychologists, there are four types of Intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)

1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
This is the measure of your level of comprehension. You need IQ to solve math’s, memorize things, and recall lessons.

2. Emotional Quotient (EQ)
This is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others, keep to time, be responsible, be honest, respect boundaries, be humble, genuine and considerate.

3. Social Quotient (SQ)
This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.

People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go further in life than those with a high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize on improving IQ levels while EQ and SQ are played down.

A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ. Your EQ represents your Character, while your SQ represents your Charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs, especially your EQ and SQ.

Now there is a 4th one, a new paradigm:

4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ)
The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life, and come out of it without losing your mind.

When faced with troubles, AQ determines who will give up, who will abandon their family, and who will consider suicide.

Parents please expose your children to other areas of life than just Academics. They should adore manual labour (never use work as a form of punishment), Sports and Arts.

Develop their IQ, as well as their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of their parents.

Finally, do not prepare the road for your children. Prepare your children for the road.

(Tom: Just off the top of my head I thought of three others...

5. Financial Intelligence
How many people do not know of apply the basics of financial management?

6. Integrity, Ethics and Discipline
How many people can be coerced or blackmailed into doing something against their better judgement?

7. Situational Awareness
How many people fell for the lies over the last three years because their awareness level was not adequate to smell the inconsistencies or their data collection was too limited to give them pause to consider the illogics?)

Samir And Muhammad
Samir And Muhammad

This photo was taken in Damascus in 1899. The dwarf is Samir. He is a Christian and cannot walk. The one who carries him on his back is Muhammad. He is a Muslim and he is blind.

Mohamed relies on Samir to tell him where to go, and Samir uses his friend’s back to navigate the city streets. They were both orphans and lived in the same room.

Samir was a hakawati, he had the gift of narration and told stories of a thousand and one nights to the customers of a cafe in Damascus, Mohamed sold bolbolas in front of the same cafe and liked to listen to his friend’s stories.

One day, when he retired to his room, Muhammad found his companion dead. He wept and mourned his friend for seven days straight. When asked how they got along so well, being of different religions, he said only this:

“Here we were the same”, pointing with his hand to his heart.

Angels Walk Among Us
Angels Walk Among Us

“A beautiful miracle happen to me today. Sitting in Pimpama McDonald’s carpark waiting for an appointment a gentleman who I later found out was named Tony approached my car window. He asked if I knew about the state of my tyres. I explained that I knew I needed new ones but at the moment simply couldn’t afford it. He asked me if I would follow him to Bridgestone Pimpama across the road to see what they could do for me. This complete stranger, Tony explained he couldn’t live with himself if he walked away from the situation knowing they were about to blow at anytime. Tony didn’t expect anything in return but asked me that one day when I’m in the position where I’m able to help someone I pay it forward. $535 dollars, a lot of tears on my behalf, a few hugs, three brand new tyres, a wheel alignment later and the offer to fuel up my car he left. No last name, no contact number, Just Tony the gentle giant with his two beautiful sons teaching them a life lesson.

Tony if this ever reaches you, thankyou! Thankyou for your utterly selfless act, your kind words, for restoring my faith in humanity. From the bottom of my heart thankyou!

Also a big thankyou to Bridgestone tyres Pimpama for fitting me in on a fully booked out day and for the great service, you guys are champs!”

As Jack Reacher Says, “Hope for the best, plan for the worst.”

(Tom: From Dr Mercola, a heads up to prep for predicted food shortages. Even if you cannot afford to do much, buy some rice and an extra tin or two of beans when they are on special and plant some potatoes.

If I could distill to one sentence all I have read on what is planned/predicted in our immediate future, it would be this, “The International Bankers plan to produce extreme chaos so people will accept their offered slavery to escape the chaos.”

I am talking riots in the streets level chaos such as Venezuela and Sri Lanka went through due to food shortages.

My wisdom to share with you: “An emergency is only an emergency because it is not planned and prepared for.”)

Across the world, experts and analysts are now warning of skyrocketing food prices and catastrophic food shortages. In mid-May 2022, United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said the world is facing years of famine.

Blame for this global food shortage is, officially, being laid at the feet of climate change,” the COVID pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict, but other factors are also contributing to bring our food system to the breaking point.

Crop failures and low yields have caused several countries to reduce or halt food exports, and fertilizer, fuel and energy shortages further worsen this already strained food supply.

President Biden’s decision to transition the United States away from energy independency by shutting down the Keystone pipeline, canceling offshore oil leases and freezing new leases and permits for federal oil and gas drilling doesn’t help the situation in the U.S. It also doesn’t help that the U.S. and U.K. continue paying farmers to not farm or to grow less.

Globally, food prices increased by 29.8% between March 2021 and March 2022, while meat prices rose 2.2% in a single month between March and April 2022.

Across the world, experts and analysts are now warning of skyrocketing food prices and catastrophic food shortages. In mid-May 2022, United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said the world is facing years of famine, and urged Russia to permit the safe and secure export of grain stored in Ukrainian ports” to ease shortages.

Blame for this global food shortage is, officially, being laid at the feet of climate change,” the COVID pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict. But while all of those have played their role, other factors are also contributing to bring our food system to the breaking point.

Death by a Thousand Cuts

For example, between January 2021 and April 2022, at least 20 food processing facilities have gone up in flames, and a string of barn fires has also impacted farmers. While most of these fires have been blamed on equipment or safety failures, and fact checkers insist fires are common in these kinds of facilities, there were only two such fires in 2019, and at least some of the barn fires at the end of 2021 were suspected arson.

In 2020, wildfires also destroyed a number of farms, and in in early 2022, bird flu outbreaks among poultry resulted in the culling of millions of chickens, ducks and turkey.

In March 2021, a massive container ship became wedged across the Suez Canal in Egypt — blocking an artery of world trade,” triggering a rise in oil prices and leading to fallout that affected shipping around the globe.

More recently, there was the U.S. infant formula shortage, precipitated by the Food and Drug Administration shutting down one of the manufacturing facilities that is part of the U.S. formula monopoly.

Russia is also withholding fertilizer exports in response to the EU’s decision to ban seven of the nine Russian banks from the SWIFT system, and anyone who wants to buy Russian oil or gas has to pay in Rubles.

On top of the fertilizer shortage and subsequent price increase triggered by Russia’s ban on exports, Union Pacific (a key investor in which is BlackRock) is also restricting fertilizer shipments by train, causing shipment delays and higher prices. A Canadian Pacific freight train carrying potash (a key fertilizer ingredient) also recently derailed in Alberta, Canada.

President Biden’s decision to transition the United States away from energy independency by shutting down the Keystone pipeline, canceling offshore oil leases in Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico, and freezing new leases and permits for federal oil and gas drilling doesn’t help either.

We need fuel to farm and to ship food and fertilizer, so rising prices at the pump automatically result in higher outlays for farmers and higher food prices. It also doesn’t help or make sense for the U.S. and U.K. to continue paying farmers to not farm or grow less when a global famine is looming. And, let’s not forget the elephant in the room — out of control money printing — which is the real cause of inflation.

Shortages Are Predicted Everywhere As reported by The Economist:19

Ukraine’s exports of grain and oilseeds have mostly stopped and Russia’s are threatened. Together, the two countries supply 12% of traded calories. Wheat prices, up 53% since the start of the year, jumped a further 6% on May 16th, after India said it would suspend exports because of an alarming heatwave ...

Nearly 250m are on the brink of famine. If, as is likely, the war drags on and supplies from Russia and Ukraine are limited, hundreds of millions more people could fall into poverty. Political unrest will spread, children will be stunted and people will starve ...

Russia and Ukraine supply 28% of globally traded wheat, 29% of the barley, 15% of the maize and 75% of the sunflower oil ... Ukraine’s food exports provide the calories to feed 400 million people. The war is disrupting these supplies because Ukraine has mined its waters to deter an assault, and Russia is blockading the port of Odessa ...

China, the largest wheat producer, has said that, after rains delayed planting last year, this crop may be its worst-ever. Now, in addition to the extreme temperatures in India, the world’s second-largest producer, a lack of rain threatens to sap yields in other breadbaskets, from America’s wheat belt to the Beauce region of France. The Horn of Africa is being ravaged by its worst drought in four decades ...

All this will have a grievous effect on the poor. Households in emerging economies spend 25% of their budgets on food ... In many importing countries, governments cannot afford subsidies to increase the help to the poor, especially if they also import energy — another market in turmoil ...

Since the war started, 23 countries from Kazakhstan to Kuwait have declared severe restrictions on food exports that cover 10% of globally traded calories. More than one-fifth of all fertilizer exports are restricted. If trade stops, famine will ensue.”

Food Prices Skyrocket Worldwide Globally, food prices increased by 29.8% between March 2021 and March 2022, while meat prices rose 2.2% in a single month between March and April 2022. The map below, posted on Twitter by Marc Ross,20 shows the areas of the world hardest hit by food price increases.

world grain shortage Not surprisingly, poorer countries notice price hikes the most, while people in wealthier nations can afford to pay more without tipping into starvation. Eventually, however, as inflation continues while salaries remain flat, even the middle-class will start to feel it. And, of course, at a certain point, it won’t matter how much money you have because you can’t buy food, at any price, if there is none.

Great Reset Is Underway By now, you’ve likely heard about the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Great Reset and their plan for you to own nothing and be happy” by 2030. We’re now seeing this plan in motion all over the place.

For example, in the first quarter of 2021, 15% of U.S. homes sold were purchased by corporate investors21 — not families looking to achieve their American dream. Seemingly without warning, we’ve entered an era where home ownership is becoming out of reach for many, and that’s a first step to owning nothing.” As noted in a tweet by Cultural Husbandry:22

This is wealth redistribution, and it ain’t rich people’s wealth that is getting redistributed. It’s normal American middle class, salt of the earth wealth heading into the hands of the world’s most powerful entities and individuals. The traditional financial vehicle [is] gone forever.

Home equity is the main financial element that middle class families use to build wealth, and BlackRock, a federal reserve funded financial institution is buying up all the houses to make sure that young families can’t build wealth ... This is a fundamental reorganization of society.”

Indeed, and it’s right in line with plans for societal reorganization described under banners such as The Great Reset, Build Back Better, Agenda 21, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Green Energy movement. These agendas all work together toward the same goal, which is a global monopoly on ownership and wealth, with a clear separation of the haves and have nots; the owners and the owned; the rulers and the ruled; the elite and the serfs.

If meat consumption, frozen foods, fossil fuel use, home appliances, air conditioning and single-family homes are ’unsustainable,’ it stands to reason that the goal of any sustainable development scheme is to eliminate all of those things, and this process of elimination is now well underway. In 1992 at the Earth Summit, under-secretary-general of the Convention on Climate Change and executive director of the UN Environment Program, Maurice Strong, stated that:25

Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class, involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and workplace air-conditioning, and suburban housing, are not sustainable.”

If meat consumption, frozen foods, fossil fuel use, home appliances, air conditioning and single-family homes are unsustainable,” it stands to reason that the goal of any sustainable development scheme is to eliminate all of those things, and this process of elimination is now well underway.

It’s All About Creating Forced Dependency
Understand, The Great Reset involves the destruction of supply chains, the energy sector, the food supply and workforce, to create dependency on government, which in turn will be taken over by private interests and central banks through the collapse of the global economy. A large-enough war would accomplish all of these aims, which is why the possibility of world war cannot be discounted. An anonymous correspondent recently wrote about this on

Welcome to the second phase of the Great Reset: war. While the pandemic acclimatized the world to lockdowns, normalized the acceptance of experimental medications, precipitated the greatest transfer of wealth to corporations by decimating SMEs [small and medium-sized businesses] and adjusted the muscle memory of workforce operations in preparation for a cybernetic future, an additional vector was required to accelerate the economic collapse before nations can ’Build Back Better.’”

The article presents several ways in which the current conflict between Russia and Ukraine is the next catalyst for the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset agenda, facilitated by an interconnected web of global stakeholders and a diffuse network of public-private partnerships.”

Disruption to supply chains fit right into this plan, while food shortages, driven by the many factors discussed and, perhaps, orchestrated attacks on food plants, will accelerate the acceptance of synthetic foods, such as lab-grown meat, which has also been championed by Great Reset front men like Bill Gates.

There are solutions, but we have to jump on them now. In my previous article, “Why Food Prices Are Expected to Skyrocket,” I review how biodynamic farming can help us out of these dilemmas, as it doesn’t use synthetic fertilizers and requires far less water. I also discuss new investment opportunities that can support regenerative agriculture projects. On an individual, more immediate basis, however, some key areas of basic preparation include:

Food — Grow some of your own food, make friends with local farmers, create or join a local CSA, and shore up your long-term food stores. (Rather than panic buying mass quantities all at once, consider spreading it out and just buy a little more than you need for the day or week each time you go shopping. You can build up a backup supply rather quickly that way)

Water — Identify sources of potable water and make sure you have one or more ways to purify questionable water supplies

Power — Consider how you might power some of the essentials in your home if there are rolling blackouts, or the electrical grid goes down altogether

Firearms training for self defense and hunting — Learn how to use, store, carry and clean a firearm and work on your marksmanship. Other forms of self-defense training can also be useful, if nothing else, to make you feel more competent and confident in potentially high-risk situations

Communications — Give some thought to how you will communicate with friends and family if cell towers and/or internet goes down

Medicine — Stock up on nutritional supplements, medications, how-to books on alternative home remedies and first-aid supplies

Money — Keep cash on hand, including smaller denominations. Both power grid and internet outages can eliminate your ability to buy without cash. For more long-term protection against inflation, consider buying physical precious metals such as gold and silver

Remember to consider and include analog devices and manual tools in your preparation. We’re so used to having unlimited electricity and continuous wireless communications, it can be difficult to imagine the restrictions you’ll face without them. If need be, turn off the breakers in your home for a day or two, ditch all wireless devices, and see what challenges come up. Then, figure out what you need to solve them.

Also, consider keeping hard copies of useful books and important documents, such as your most recent bank statements, asset statements, the deed to your home or car and so on.

Entire books can, and have, been written on prepping, and some will take it to extremes. But while you probably won’t need an underground bunker stocked with a decade’s-worth of food, everyone, at this point, really ought to be preparing, to some degree, for food and energy shortages.

My list above is merely a summary of some of the key areas of focus. The details of how to go about each one, however, are manifold. As a community, we can help each other with this.

So, please, share your personal ideas for basic (and not so basic) preparation in the Vital Votes comment section below. If you have questions, be sure to post those too, so the community can help answer them. Of course, building supportive communities into a variety of people can bring their skills will become paramount, so don’t just rely on online relationships. Get to know your physical neighbors too.
