The human race, being a collection of stupids, continues to make decisions that imperil itself.

For example, a simple mistake in a warning system about incoming ICBMs can end all life on earth. The super-smart idiots who invented nuclear weapons did not think about the possible unintended consequences of their handiwork. They wanted to defeat the Nazis, and that was the limit of their imagination.

If you don't like that example, consider this one. The digital revolution has made us dependent on communications and control systems, such as those that operate power systems, that can be fried by super-flares, which the sun on which we depend has every two or three thousand years, and shut down by hackers.

As I understand it, the same thing can happen from a nuclear blast in the atmosphere. When power systems go down, nuclear reactors can overheat and produce Fukushima meltdowns. Try to image the consequences of a large number of such meltdowns. Yet, we have adopted a technology that subjects us to these kind of risks as well as to an Orwellian police state existence.

Why? Because the human race is mindless. Unlike highly intelligent non-human animals who are capable of rational decisions, humans can't see beyond the end of their noses. The smell of money is what they respond to.

And there are health risks of technology, such as those associated with the roll-out of 5G. See for example, this.

Nevertheless, 5G is rolling out as it serves material interests, that is, corporate profits. The external costs of these profits, if the many dissenting scientists and medical professionals are correct, will greatly exceed in medical bills, infertility, anguish, shortened life spans, and so forth, the totality of profits from 5G.

But don't think your government, or the 5G corporations care.

Americans take their soma in the form of brainwashing and have become brainwashed sheep. As far as I can tell, they will remain brainwashed sheep until they are beat into non-existence. Are brainwashed people capable of rebellion?

No one on the coming 4th of July will call for an uprising against our easily identified oppressors. The reason is that everyone allowed to speak publicly is in the pay of our oppressors.

Americans are so firmly locked into The Matrix that it is problematic that they can be rescued.

When the world faces "the Great American Democracy," the world faces a brainwashed public in the grip of material interests who are backed up by nuclear weapons, controls over the use of which have been consistently removed since the Clinton regime.

On the Fourth of July brainwashed Americans will wave the flag and chant: USA! USA! USA!
