We are very tired of having to discuss secret societies when discussing US public policy-----the two are OPPOSITE discussions. This week we want to spend a day reminding what DEPOPULATION means to global banking 1% and their ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE policies------and then look at what captured our US 3 branches of government----killed our thriving and strong US DOMESTIC, LOCAL FREE MARKET ECONOMY-------and it is the same global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS KNIGHTS OF MALTA TRIBE OF JUDAH.
THE INFERNO with all those global banking 1% freemason STARS simply draws our US 99% of citizens into DARK AGES LAISSEZ FAIRE economic structures. These few decades of Clinton/Bush/Obama has been nothing but global banking US FED meets global MITRE CORPORATION.
'The various deans of a university's various schools, colleges, or faculties generally report to the provost or jointly to the chief executive officer (variously called president, chancellor, or rector) and the provost, as do the heads of various interdisciplinary units and academic support functions, such as libraries, student services, the registrar, admissions, and information technology. The provost, in turn, is responsible to the institution's chief executive officer and governing board or boards (variously called the board of trustees, the board of regents, the board of governors, or the corporation) for oversight of all educational affairs and activities, including research and academic personnel'.
If we read THE INFERNO-------with the character of THE PROVOST -------we are seeing the structures having been built in our US public and private universities these few decades.
INFERNO - Teaser Trailer (HD)
#InfernoMovie - In Theaters October 28 Academy Award® winner Ron Howard returns to direct the latest bestseller in Dan Brown’s (Da Vinci Code)…
When REAL LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE academics were pushed from US universities both public and private we have known these few decades have filled our US universities with PROVOSTS tracked from of course global banking 1% hedge fund universities. What THE INFERNO by Dan Brown creates as a character and global business-------THE PROVOST and his network are simply modeled upon what TRINITY COLLEGE/OXFORD/HARVARD/KNIGHTS OF MALTA have installed in our US universities.
It is interesting to read INFERNO looking at THE PROVOST and his global corporation operating as that OFF-SHORE CORPORATION.....and think about what these few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA have installed in our US cities as FAILED STATES and counties.
Remember, this circulating players tied to global hedge fund university corporations into leading US city institutional leadership occurred in each of our RELIGIONS as well----these are those global banking 5% freemason/Greek FAKE religious and education leaders we always discuss.
Leading U.S. Deans and Provosts to Explore Innnovation and Bilateral Academic Opportunities in Israel

Leading U.S. Deans and Provosts to Explore Innovation and Bilateral Academic Opportunities in Israel
Provosts and Deans of Smith College, Catholic University, Sarah Lawrence, Bard College, Rice University, Brown University, Dominican University of California, University of South Florida, University of Louisville Participating
AJC’s Project Interchange 8th Delegation of University Leaders; 1st for Deans, Provosts
(Jerusalem, Israel) - A delegation of provosts and deans from top U.S. universities is visiting Israel to investigate opportunities for bilateral academic partnerships and collaboration through an educational seminar conducted by AJC’s Project Interchange (American Jewish Committee).
The delegation will visit Israeli universities and centers of higher education, including Tel Aviv University, the Israel Institute, and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, for a series of meetings in areas relevant to their universities such as science, environmental sustainability, biotech, diversity, and women’s leadership. The delegation will learn about state-of-the art research initiatives and ground-breaking innovation at Israeli universities, as well as unique academia-to-industry technology transfer that has contributed to Israel’s reputation as the “Start Up Nation”. Participants will also meet with high-ranking Israeli officials and experts and will travel to Ramallah for high level discussions with Palestinian leaders.
The impressive group of deans and provosts serve as their campus’ chief academic officers, with oversight of their campus academic affairs and primary focus on faculty, bilateral cooperation, and curriculum. The delegation includes experts in the fields of women and gender; research with direct implications for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other diseases; K-12 STEM education; cognitive science; linguistics; cultural studies and globalization; and communications.
The seminar was designed by Project Interchange in consultation with the participating university presidents and chancellors, and will offer broad exposure to the complex issues facing Israel and the region, with the delegation scheduled to meet with senior government, academic and civil society leaders across the Israeli social and political spectrum, and traveling to the West Bank to meet with Palestinian leaders. The delegation is chaired by Marilyn R. Schuster, Provost and Dean of the Faculty of Smith College.
“We are tremendously pleased to host this impressive delegation of important American university deans and provosts for their first of hopefully many trips to Israel. The world-class research and educational facilities at Israeli universities and colleges, a number of which will be visited during the program, provide a fitting setting for great minds to share information, discuss research partnerships, and explore opportunities for mutually-beneficial cooperation,” said Project Interchange Executive Director Sam Witkin. “Israel’s world-class research and educational innovation attests to its role as a global player.”
The program marks Project Interchange’s 8th annual seminar for university leaders, and first for deans and provosts. At the same time, Project Interchange is concluding two simultaneous annual Project Interchange delegations for American university student leaders, ranging from California campus leaders to university newspaper editors across the U.S.
Previous Project Interchange seminars for university leaders have resulted in numerous instances of collaboration for the mutual benefit of participant universities and their Israeli counterparts, including but not limited to: the joint Cornell-Technion technology/science campus; University of the Incarnate Word which is collaborating with the Sackler School of Medicine to create a medical school at UIW; University of Michigan’s three-year, $2 million partnership with Ben Gurion University to develop renewable energy technology projects; and University of California-Irvine which has signed ten bilateral academic exchange agreements with Israeli universities and hosted an Israeli innovation conference.
AJC’s Project Interchange University Deans and Provosts delegation includes:
The Catholic University of America
Sarah Lawrence College
Dominican University of California
University of South Florida
University of Louisville

When we say these few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA are far-right wing global banking 1% filled with LYING, CHEATING, STEALING----NO MORALS OR ETHICS ----NO US RULE OF LAW ---NO GOD'S NATURAL LAWS------this is from where it originates. Our US universities graduating from a few universities building networks looking just like THE PROVOST'S -------THE MENDACIUM.
THE MENDACIUM-------THE PROVOST's global corporation means in Latin -----
- telling lies, especially habitually; dishonest; lying; untruthful: a mendacious person.
- false or untrue:
We would suggest to all our 99% of citizens that looking for CLUES to what global banking 1% has in store in MOVING FORWARD FINAL FINAL SOLUTION in these 5% freemason STAR cultural arts will lead you down that BLIND ALLEY.
THE MENDICIUM describes the entirety of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA----while a STEYER is calling TRUMP corrupt.
The Keys to Dan Brown's Inferno
The Mendacium – The Mendacium, captained by the “provost” is a 300 million dollar, “237-foot luxury yacht” equipped with a “spa, pool, cinema, personal submarine, and helicopter pad” (Brown, 37).
Manned by a staff of two dozen, The Mendacium includes “a small-unit of military-trained soldiers, two missle-detection systems, and an arsenal of the latest weapons available (Brown, 37). Also, according to Legal Dictionary, the word mendacium is a Latin term meaning “falsehood” or “lie.” The Latin meaning adds to the mysterious and criminal aura of The Mendacium.
Yacht – A yacht is typically a boat or small ship that is recognized as unique for being particularly luxurious.
The Consortium – A group of individuals or organizations that collaborate to achieve a common goal. In Dan Brown’s Inferno, the Consortium is a powerful organization that works for the “provost” and provides services to the clients of the “provost”. The word is also frequently used in academic circles.
Provost – Provost has a number of meanings, most associated with a high-ranking official or figure of authority. In Inferno, the “provost” provides services to clients of the Consortium. His client, we will subsequently learn, is Bertrand Zobrist.
Vayentha – “Vayentha is the name of the spiked hair young woman in a context that recalls Buddhism may give a clue to her name. Another possibility is from the avatar world of Subeta where someone named Vayentha identifies herself as a Time Lord, the inhabitants of a science fiction series on British television” (anonymous). The young woman will bring to mind for many The Girl with Dragon Tattoo, a character in one of the books and films from the bestselling trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani
sheikh -The term sheikh is an Arabic term meaning “elder” or “leader.” The “provost” in Inferno provides services to powerful people such as sheikhs throughout his life.
The decisions of our past are the architects of our present – We have mentioned the criticism Brown has evoked for his use of italics. Here the statement while original in this form may be related to the Buddhist concept of karma: According to Buddhism, this inequality is due not only to heredity, environment, “nature and nurture”, but also to Karma. In other words, it is the result of our own past actions and our own present doings. We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
We want to bring another term we see often in global banking 1% FREEMASON STAR cultural arts ------creating FADS-------that manufactured media and arts using THE BOOK OF REVELATIONS as the indicator that END TIMES are MOVING FORWARD just as does DAN BROWN'S INFERNO.
Below we see WORMWOOD. It simply refers to Biblical prophesies that END TIMES will look like FIRES, FOULED FRESH WATER, TAINTED SOILS-----you know, all that global MONSANTO/global FRACKING-----global MINING which is indeed fouling all our Earth's land, fresh water, and air.
Now, the SOCIOPATH GENIUS wanting to DEPOPULATE the Earth to SAVE humanity-----chose to use an AIRBORNE DISEASE VIRUS VECTOR which the WHO character rightly claims is no where in site in research and development. So, this PLAGUE and all these FEAR-MONGERING over global pandemics through genetic manipulations are FAKE NEWS FAKE DATA.
As we discuss over and over and over----global banking 1% depopulation does not need EVIL GENIUS VIRUS VECTORS----simply unleashing all our normal disease vectors eliminated by a few centuries of VACCINATIONS and PUBLIC HEALTH policies will do the same as EVIL GENIUS VIRUS VECTOR.
What is the meaning of wormwood in Revelation?
Question: "What is the meaning of wormwood in Revelation?"
Answer: "Wormwood" is the name of a star in Revelation 8:10-11: “The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.” This is the third of the “trumpet judgments” described in Revelation. The seven trumpets are the judgments of the seventh seal (Revelation 8:1-5). The first trumpet causes hail and fire that destroy much of the plant life in the world (Revelation 8:7). The second trumpet brings about what seems to be a meteor, comet, or other heavenly body hitting the oceans and causing the death of one-third of the world’s sea life (Revelation 8:8-9). The third trumpet is similar to the second, except it affects the world’s lakes and rivers instead of the oceans (Revelation 8:10-11). It will cause a third part of all fresh water on earth to turn bitter and many people will die from drinking it.
The word “wormwood” is mentioned only here in the New Testament, but it appears eight times in the Old Testament, each time associated with bitterness, poison and death. The Revelation passage may not be saying that the star falling to the earth will actually be called Wormwood by the inhabitants of the earth. Rather, wormwood was a well-known bitter herb in the Bible times, so by naming the star Wormwood, we are told that its effect will be to embitter the waters of the earth, so much so that the water is undrinkable. It won’t be a matter of simply a bitter taste to the water; it will literally be poisonous. If drinking water is unavailable to one third of the earth’s population, it’s easy to see how chaos and terror will result. Humans can only survive a couple of days without water, and the inhabitants of the affected areas will be so desperate as to actually drink the poisoned water, causing the death of thousands, if not millions of people.
This is a prophecy that is yet to come in the last seven years of this age, also known as the 70th week of Daniel. This is only one of the natural disasters in the seven trumpets that will usher in the rise of the Antichrist to world power very quickly (see Revelation, chapter 13). Since one-third of the earth is destroyed by these trumpet judgments, this is only a partial judgment from God. His full wrath is yet to be unleashed.
DEPOPULATION of EARTH MASTER PLAN having solidified during CLINTON era 1992-----with WORLD HEALTH WORLD BANK'S ---SUSTAINABILITY policies----remember, sustainability used by far-right wing global banking 1% means how to build extreme wealth and corporate power using our 99% of global citizens. It is the opposite of our 99% WE THE PEOPLE sustainability.
So, yes, this is when UNITED NATIONS WORLD BANK pushed into motion what was a MARGINAL policy held by a small group of people as DAN BROWN INFERNO describes in his novel. That MARGINAL SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE of course being those global banking 1% and their 2%----
'International Conventions: Earth Summit 1992 (UNCED) | CBD ...
UNCED – Earth Summit 1992, Rio De janeiro Brazil. Earth Summit 1992 is also known as The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). As a follow-up, the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Rio+10) was held in 2002 in Johannesburg, South Africa'.
Our US cities and counties were never captured by OLD WORLD secret societies as they were MOVING FORWARD CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA.
What is important to understand with all this FEAR-MONGERING CULTURAL ARTS-----the GMO HUMANS and animals VIRUSES/BACTERIA et al really are not ready for PRIME TIME. Yes, scientists can MANIPULATE genes ------yes, they can operate effectively in some cases in contained environments like our human body. The problem for our 99% of citizens black, white, and brown citizens is not the building of this PLAGUE GMO-----it is having people controlling our US government and agencies WANTING to depopulate the EARTH.
- "In theory, we could add gene sets and essentially recreate any organism," Venter said. "It would be an important experimental tool."
This is the point where what was a REAL left social progressive US CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL wanting to protect public health ----went FAR-RIGHT WING and has during CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA embraced a mission of depopulating EARTH under the guise of a MORAL goal of saving HUMANITY from itself.

DAN BROWN INFERNO uses what were MALTHUSIAN population growth mathematical models which were DEBUNKED when originally created as too SOCIAL DARWINISM/EUGENICS. All three of these concepts were MARGINAL until these few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. This is because global banking 1% are using these models for ECONOMIC BENEFIT for those extremely rich-------it is not a REAL BASIC SCIENCE mathematical model.
Malthusian Theory of Population
| Intelligent Economist
The Malthusian Theory of Population is a theory of exponential population growth and arithmetic food supply growth. Thomas Robert Malthus, an English cleric, and scholar published this theory in his 1798 writings, An Essay on the Principle of Population.
POPULATION studies whether looking at ANIMAL or HUMAN populations have never indicated that HUMAN POPULATION DENSITY was becoming an EXTINCTION EVENT. Despite all that FICTION in Dan Brown's INFERNO about EXTINCT EVENTS-----images of cities allowed to become TOO CROWDED IN COSMOPOLITAN development----
Each animal, plant, and human species has for millions of years a built in depopulation structure tied to culling down populations when the numbers are too high----as well as building populations back up when they are too low.
THAT IS BASIC POPULATION DENSITY SCIENCE.
A MAalthus & Population Theory Debunked
August 1, 2009
Rev Thomas Robert Malthus (February, 1766 – December 23, 1834), was an English demographer and political economist best known for his pessimistic but highly influential views.
Malthus was born to a prosperous family. His father was a personal friend of the philosopher and sceptic David Hume and an acquaintance of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. The young Malthus was educated at home until his admission to Jesus College, Cambridge in 1784. There he studied many subjects and took prizes in English declamation, Latin and Greek. His principal subject was mathematics. He earned a masters degree in 1791 and was elected a fellow of Jesus College two years later. In 1797, he was ordained and became an Anglican country parson.
In An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in 1798, Malthus predicted population would outrun food supply, leading to a decrease in food per person.
This prediction was based on the idea that population if unchecked increases at a “Exponential rate” (i.e. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc.) whereas the food supply grows at an “Arithmetic” rate (i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.) (See Malthusian catastrophe for more information.) Only misery, moral restraint and vice (which for Malthus included contraception) could check excessive population growth. Malthus favoured “moral restraint” (including late marriage and sexual abstinence) as a check on population growth. However, it is worth noting that Malthus proposed this only for the working and poor classes. Thus, the lower social classes took a great deal of responsibility for societal ills, according to his theory. Essentially what this resulted in was the promotion of legislation which degenerated the conditions of the poor in England.
HMMMM, WHO IS LYING, CHEATING, STEALING, NO MORALS OR ETHICS, NO RULE OF LAW, NO GOD'S NATURAL LAW -------NIHILISM? THAT WOULD BE GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS AND THOSE DASTARDLY 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYERS GRADUATING FROM FAKE JESUS COLLEGES.
The foregoing is all taken from “Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.htm” – An Essay on the Principle of Population. Ch 1
The different modes which nature takes to prevent or repress a redundant population, do not appear, indeed, to us so certain and regular; but though we cannot always predict the mode, we may with certainty predict the fact. If the proportion of births to deaths for a few years, indicate an increase of numbers much beyond the proportional increased or acquired produce of the country, we may be perfectly certain, that unless an emigration takes place, the deaths will shortly exceed the births; and that the increase that had taken place for a few years cannot be the real average increase of the population of the country. Were there no other depopulating causes, every country would, without doubt, be subject to periodical pestilences or famine.
“…the Malthusian doctrine, that population tends to increase faster than subsistence. Examination, however, shows that this doctrine has no real support either in fact or in analogy, and that when brought to a decisive test it is utterly disproved”
– H .George. Progress & Poverty (Preface 1880ed)
“The current doctrine as to the derivation and law of wages finds its strongest support in a doctrine as generally accepted—the doctrine to which Malthus has given his name—that population naturally tends to increase faster than subsistence. These two doctrines, fitting in with each other, frame the answer which the current political economy gives to the great problem we are endeavoring to solve.”
H. George, Progress & Poverty Bk II, Population and Subsistance.
It is evident from the above sources that the Malthusian theory “that population tends to increase faster than subsistence” was used to blame the poor for their own condition. A very prevalent argument used today by politicians and others who advocate that nature is tardy and has not provided adequately for her offspring: Which is what George objected to and showed how it was wrong.
It was necessary for Henry George to debunk the Malthus theory for the simple reason that it was the accepted reason for the condition of the poor. If that theory was correct then no other reason was of any consequence. George spent four (4) chapters on the subject. Like all things, whether or not you accept his logic, it is a matter for mind and logic. There is little evidence that, today, the world suffers from any Malthusian ailment and the population is greater than anything Malthus could have imagined.
Julian Simon (late professor of business administration at the University of Maryland wrote in a policy report for the Cato Institute – a non-profit public policy research foundation.
“We have in our hands now – actually in our libraries – the technology to feed, clothe, and supply energy to an ever-growing population for the next 7 billion years.”
WE DO INDEED NO THANKS TO THE CATO INSTITUTE WHICH IS OF COURSE GLOBAL BANKING 1% OLD WORLD KINGS KNIGHTS OF MALTA TRIBE OF JUDAH AND ITS ENDLESS WARS.
“This is the economic history of humanity in a nutshell:
“From 2 million or 200,000 or 20,000 or 2,000 years ago until the 18th Century there was slow growth in population, almost no increase in health or decrease in mortality, slow growth in the availability of natural resources (but not increased scarcity), increase in wealth for a few, and mixed effects on the environment. Since then there has been rapid growth in population due to spectacular decreases in the death rate, rapid growth in resources, widespread increases in wealth, and an unprecedently clean and beautiful living environment in many parts of the world along with a degraded environment in the poor and socialist parts of the world.
That is, more people and more wealth has correlated with more (rather than less) resources and a cleaner environment -just the opposite of what Malthusian theory leads one to believe.
The task before us is to make sense of these mind-boggling happy trends.”
“…when I began to work on population studies, I assumed that the accepted view was sound. I aimed to help the world contain its “exploding” population, which I believed to be one of the two main threats to humankind (war being the other). But my reading and research led me into confusion. Though the then-standard economic theory of population (which had hardly changed since Malthus) asserted that a higher population growth implies a lower standard of living, the available empirical data did not support that theory.”
“Let us start the analysis with a given population of workers and a given supply of physical capital – a given farm acreage, a given number of factories, and a given number of machines. If the number of workers increases, then the supply of capital will be diluted; that is, if there are more workers, there is less capital available for each worker to use. If there is less capital per worker, output (and income) per worker will fall. This Malthusian dilution effect is one of the main liabilities of additional population. The extent of the loss can be calculated easily. Twice as many workers with the same capital implies half as much capital per worker. In a typical modern economy this would reduce each worker’s output (and hence income) by about one third.”
Dr. Julian Simon wrote extensively on population:
The Hoodwinking of a Nation – Scarcity or Abundance? A Debate on the Environment – The Ultimate Resource II: People, Materials, and Environment
The Professor devoted much time to debunking ideas of doom, particularly Malthus. Whilst he showed the fallacies of the arguments he did not show or demonstrate an alternative policy for the relief of the poor.
We are left with the policies of George or those of Marx/Engels. All three wrote against Malthus.
The character from WHO racing around seeming to be fighting this PLAGUE RELEASE-----calling it constantly EVIL-----not what the WHO wants to see while somehow praising THE GATES FAMILY for being SOCIALLY GOOD. At the end this WHO leader comes to the same conclusion as the EVIL GENIUS-----a airborne VIRUS infecting the entire planet of humans bringing staged STERILITY might be a good thing after all.
Related to virus: computer virusvi·rus (vī′rəs)
n. pl. vi·rus·es
a. Any of various submicroscopic agents that infect living organisms, often causing disease, and that consist of a single or double strand of RNA or DNA surrounded by a protein coat. Unable to replicate without a host cell, viruses are typically not considered living organisms.
b. A disease caused by a virus.
2. A computer program or series of commands that can replicate itself and that spreads by inserting copies of itself into other files or programs which users later transfer to other computers. Viruses usually have a harmful effect, as in erasing all the data on a disk.
3. A harmful or destructive influence: the pernicious virus of racism.
The SYMBOLISM of releasing a VIRUS to create STERILITY in all HUMANS is simply the REAL goal of global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS and today's WHO in using remote control contraception MICROCHIPS which when implanted under our human skin releasing a biochemical aimed at CONTRACEPTION would be called A VIRUS. A VIRUS is simply anything that is destructive to civil society ----destructive to our human bodies.
THIS IS WHAT DAN BROWN INFERNO MEANT IN CREATING PLOTS SURROUNDING THE RELEASE OF A VIRUS VECTOR TO CREATE STERILITY WORLDWIDE.
The TRUTH as IRONY sent by DAN BROWN was that it is the WHO MOVING FORWARD these global sterilization policies ------no one fighting this at WHO or what was once a strong CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL.

Bill Gates’ new remote-controlled contraceptive microchip could be used for eugenics: critic
abortifiacients, bill gates, contraception, gates foundation
Updated at 2:16 p.m. EST to include comments from Fr. Shenan Boquet and information from Wired magazine.
LEXINGTON, MA – The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding the development of a contraceptive microchip that can be remotely controlled to release hormones that can act as abortifacients into a woman's body for up to 16 years. Both the chip's potential to take a life and the potential privacy concerns have drawn criticism.
The chip, which measures 20 x 20 x 7 millimeters, can be implanted under the skin of a woman's buttocks, upper arm, or abdomen in 30 minutes. The device contains a 16-year reservoir of the drug levonorgestrel, releasing 30 micrograms a day – but the dosage can be altered by remote control, as well.
The technology was originally intended, and tested, to release osteoporosis medication in elderly women, but Dr. Robert Langer of MIT changed his focus to contraception after a personal discussion with Bill Gates. Gavin Corley, a biomedical engineer, told the BBC the technology could be used to achieve contraceptive targets in the developing world, indicating “a humanitarian application as opposed to satisfying a first-world need.”
The announcement comes as the Gates Foundation is spearheading an international, multi-billion-dollar push for expanding birth control in the developing world, bringing charges from pro-life and political that they are engaged in global population control. In June, Melinda Gates wrote that the foundation “has decided not to fund abortion” as part of its efforts.
But numerous studies have indicated that levonorgestrel, the hormone used both by this chip and the morning after pill, has a strong anti-implantation effect, meaning it acts in part by preventing a newly-conceived embryo from implanting in the uterus. One study found the hormone only has an “effectiveness rate” of 49 percent when blocking ovulation alone.
"Administration of dangerous hormonal contraceptive drugs, whether through new technologies or traditional oral methods, should not be considered a boon for women’s health, as the serious risks of these drugs are better known every day," Fr. Shenan Boquet, president of Human Life International, told LifeSiteNews.com.
"Our concerns are only heightened when we see reporters promoting this effort of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation without mention of the harm done to women by other versions of these drugs, as if this only promises good health and empowerment for women," he added.
This isn’t reporting; it’s propaganda, and it is especially dangerous given the risks involved."
Then again, a remote-controlled computer chip that potentially leaves the patient's health at the mercy of anyone with sufficient computer skills presents its own issues.
Dr. Robert Farra of MIT said the subcutaneous computer chip must be given “secure encryption” so that “someone across the room cannot re-program your implant.” To date, that security has not been developed.
Civil libertarians worry about how hackers – and rogue government agencies – could exploit that technology. “Whatever that chip transmits will go into a government file,” John Whitehead, a constitutional attorney and founder of The Rutherford Institute, told LifeSiteNews. “The chip may actually know when you're having sex. So, there will be no privacy, no.”
One source of privacy violation is hackers. In April, Wired magazine reported on a two-year effort led by Scott Erven that successfully hacked hospitals' drug-infusion pumps, allowing them to alter the amount of morphine administered to patients; accessed defibrilators, creating unnecessary shocks or preventing life-saving shocks to restart a patient's heart; refrigeration units that house blood, changing the temperature and potentially allowing the blood supply to spoil; viewed X-rays; and had the ability to change patients' online medical records.
Another is government. Whitehead extensively researched the extent of government surveillance for his new book, A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State.
“Here's what I've learned about government – whatever technology we have, theirs is much greater,” he said, noting the potential for abuse leads to inherent privacy issues and violations of the Fourth Amendment. “The FBI is collecting a huge DNA database now,” he told LifeSiteNews. The Supreme Court upheld widespread DNA collection in its 2013 Maryland v. King decision.
“I'm afraid the chip could be activated in some harmful way,” such as a future eugenics program, Whitehead said. “It could basically bar certain people from having children.”
Instead of protecting citizens' liberties, “Congress has given us no guidelines” about invasive forms of technology, he said. He believes that is because Congress is “funded by the same groups that are providing the technology.”
Pre-clinical testing of the new microchip begins next year. Langer's development team at MicroCHIPS Inc., based in Lexington, Massachusetts, hopes to introduce the product by 2018, pending approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“People can voluntarily do it,” Whitehead said, “but they need to know what the dangers are.”
"The Gates Foundation and its partners are likely to continue this assault on women’s health until a sustained world-wide backlash ensues," Fr. Boquet said.
We wanted to make two points about all that FIRE, TAINTED FRESH WATER AND LAND signalling END TIMES in REVELATIONS-------as we discuss often---that is indeed what global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS KNIGHTS OF MALTA---TRIBE OF JUDAH are doing in MOVING FORWARD. They are tainting all of our fresh water resources----draining them dry on ridiculous levels of product consumption with the goals of leaving several billion of global citizens without these ordinary resources to induce DEPOPULATION.
FRACKING as MONSANTO GMO SEEDS -------GREEN REVOLUTION FAKE FERTILIZER/CHEMICAL treatment of our fertile soil----which was spawned from that 1992 SUSTAINABILITY CONFERENCE all policies MOVING FORWARD Kissinger's CONTROL THE FOOD control the people----CONTROL THE ENERGY control the nation.
This is the plot line of DAN BROWN'S INFERNO. Let's remember a little DANTE era public policy. Back then there were global banking 1% as WHITE AND BLACK------ GUELPHS----- GHIBELLINES. DANTE being WHITE GUELPH which the OLD WORLD ROYALS divided themselves back in MEDIEVAL TIMES. UK royals claim to be white guelphs like DANTE-----French/Spanish had those BLACK GUELPHS/GHIBELLINES. That is what all the history over DANTE'S death mask and hidden messages in DANTE'S INFERNO refer.
The designations Guelphs and Ghibellines originated in the 12th century from the names of rival German houses in their struggle for the title of Holy Roman Emperor. The election of Lothair II (c. 1070–1137), German king from 1125 and Holy Roman emperor from 1133, was favored by the pope and opposed by the Hohenstaufen family of princes.
This was the start of the feud between the house of Welf (Guelph), the followers of the dukes of Saxony and Bavaria, and the house of the lords of Hohenstaufen, whose castle at Waiblingen (near present-day Stuttgart) lent the Ghibellines their name.
Eventually, the Guelph-Ghibelline conflict gave way to a civil war that was finally settled in 1152 by the election of Frederick I (Barbarossa), the son of a Hohenstaufen father and a Welf mother (When Henry the Lion, a Welf, incurred the disfavor of the Holy Roman emperor Frederick Barbarossa, a Waiblingen, in 1180, his lands were forfeited to a duke of the Wittelsbach family, a dynasty that was to dominate Bavarian history until the end of World War I.).
Indeed, MENDICIUM is tied to FAKE GLOBAL GREEN CORPORATIONS---------so, this is WORMWOOD at work pretending to be END TIMES in REVELATIONS

A comment from a FB friend:
Do people understand or CARE about the process of retrieving Natural Gas called FRACKING??
Fracking Does Contaminate Groundwater: Carry on Drilling ...www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2011/12/10/...
The EPA's report on groundwater contamination by fracking (or frakking to taste) for natural gas says that the process does indeed contaminate ground water.
The EPA's report on groundwater contamination by fracking (or frakking to taste) for natural gas says that the process does indeed contaminate ground water. So now we've got to decide should be the reaction to that: my contribution to the debate is that we should carry on drilling regardless.
ProPublica's report on the EPA's paper is here, the EPA's paper itself is here and a very good indeed technical precis is here at Ars Technica.
Stripped right to its roots the report states that deep groundwater has been contaminated as a result of frakking. Both from the frakking chemicals themselves and also with methane that has, as a result of the frakking, seeped into the water.
Similarly, well water (taken from much shallower depths) has been contaminated, not directly (as far as anyone knows) as a result of frakking but as a result of the waste pits from previous oil and gas drilling activities in the area.
Finally the report notes that the shale being drilled is in a much shallower formation than exists in other areas and that there isn't, again as there is in most/many other areas, an impermeable barrier between the shale beds and higher rock formations.
That's a reasonable and non-biased summary there. Now for a little bit of bias: how you interpret these results.
I interpret then as saying that there are specifics about this particular shale, the shallowness and the lack of a barrier layer, which make this contamination happen. I agree that it's possible to assume that the same contamination will happen everywhere: I don't agree, but I do agree that it's a possibly logical position to hold.
Now of course we've got to decide what to actually do.
As I've said above, my contribution to the debate is that we should carry on drilling: although perhaps not regardless. With a proper attention to the costs and benefits. What I would not say is that this provides a sufficient argument to ban frakking at all, even though that's what Josh Fox (of Gasland fame) says should happen:
Beyond the US, Europe, South Africa, China and Australia are right now contemplating embarking on the "shale gas revolution"; they should take note of the EPA's findings. As the story unfolds, the real answer bubbles inexorably to the surface: fracking is deeply flawed; it is inherently contaminating in its present form and must be halted immediately. The empty excuses of the gas industry and the pro-fracking politicians who defend them just don't hold water.
For the following logic does not work: something bad happens when frakking is done therefore we must halt frakking. The reason this logic does not work is that whenever anything is done something bad happens: and there's not much point in our all being around if we're therefore to ban absolutely everything.
In the specific case of frakking, OK, so there's groundwater contamination as a result of it (assume that it's not something limited to Wyoming if you wish). There are also good things that happen as a result of frakking. People get cheap energy as the most obvious result. This stops people freezing in winter, boiling in summer, allows them to cook their food and, something that is generally not appreciated, natural gas is the major input into fertilizer production (along with air) and that's what allows us to grow all the food that we then want to cook. No, you cannot then state that we should all be doing the organic farming thing and we won't need the gas: there aren't enough animals providing enough ordure to produce the organic fertiliser that would be needed.
So, if we don't frakk then energy becomes more expensive: this will make life worse for many and will, in a statistical sense at least, kill some number of people. Which would be bad.
WOW! ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THAT IS TRUE.
It's also true that if we don't frakk, if we limit the drilling for natural gas, then more coal will be used to provide us with those same energy requirements. That's worse for the climate as well as being more expensive: so that would also be bad.
There's no use in saying we should replace natural gas with, say, solar power either: because solar power kills people too. California has at least three deaths reported from solar installing: that is, at least I think it is, three more deaths than have resulted from groundwater contamination by frakking. That's bad too.
And here is where we get to the central tenet of economics. No, contrary to what people are wibbling about at Occupy Wherever, economics does not insist that corporations are more important than people, that profit is all that matters, nor even that you are a peon and should shut up and accept what your betters deign to throw your way.
No, the central tenet of economics is that there are no solutions: there are only trade offs. It is not possible to have all that we desire, we cannot all have a pony and unicorns will not poop rainbows for our delectation. We have to make choices about which of our desires we will satisfy with the limited set of resources available to us. We simply have to weigh up the costs and benefits of various courses of action and thus, if we're to be rational at least, pick those that provide the most benefits as against the least costs.
Which is what we have to do with frakking. We have new information here, that it really can, under certain circumstances, lead to ground water pollution. And I'm enough of a Keynesian to agree that when the facts change I should at least be open to changing my mind. However, I don't think the facts have changed enough for me to change my mind just yet.
If we do not frakk then we do not get the cheap natural gas that we get by frakking. This leads to one of two things.
We will use more of other forms of energy to replace the cheap natural gas that we're not going to get by frakking. This might be coal (almost certainly would be in part) which would be worse for climate change. It might be more solar, which as we can see above kills people. Could be that we burn more wood: that also kills people as being a lumberjack is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. Could be wind power and that kills people too (yes, really, people do sometimes fall off 400 foot towers, amazing, I know) and it definitely kills tens of thousands of birds each year, eagles among them.
All of these things are bad: whether you think they are worse than ground water contamination is up to you, whether you think they are less bad similarly. Myself I tend to thinking that they're worse than having to truck drinking water into a few sparsely populated rural areas: but I agree that this is an opinion, not a fact.
Alternatively, we could use less energy. This would also be bad as it will be true that some who use less energy will die as a result. You might think this is less bad than ground water contamination: I don't, but your moral values are your moral values.
Given that economics insists upon this rather stark calculus, someone is going to lose out in terms of either living standards or even life itself, whichever way we decide, you might be wondering whether economics has anything to say about how we might reach a decision.
Well, yes, it does, one description of it would be Coasean bargaining. We, the mass of the nation, desire the cheap gas (yes, really, we do, we can tell that from the fact that people are buying it). The people who live above the cheap gas don't mind supplying the gas, but they really would rather not have the ground water contamination. Or the noise, the trucks, the congestion and everything else that goes with frakking.
All Coasean bargaining says is that we who want the gas should just keep raising the price we offer in compensation to those who are affected by the frakking until they agree. That is, until they agree that we are compensating them enough for the ground water pollution, the noise, congestion and everything else.
And one of the great joys of the way that minerals are owned in the US is that the system already does this. Those who are most affected by frakking are those who live above the shale that is frakked. And those who own the land above the shale that is frakked also own the gas (matters are very different in Europe where it is mostly the government which owns fossil fuels). So when they receive royalties for the gas that is frakked they are being compensated for that pollution. If they think that the royalties on offer are not sufficient to so compensate them then they are entirely free to refuse permission to drill. As indeed some do.
So we already have in place the system to deal with this new information. Those who are worried about ground water pollution can simply demand a higher royalty rate from the drilling companies. If the drilling companies won't pay up then they don't get to drill and there is no such pollution. The reason the drilling companies might not pay is because they don't think they'll be able to reclaim that money from us, the consumers. Which is just fine: if we're not willing to pay for the pollution that our energy desires leads to then we're not paying the full cost of those energy desires and don't get to satisfy them.
So in the end we reach this conclusion. The EPA's report shows that, in certain circumstances at least, frakking can lead to water pollution. We therefore need to reach some decision about whether to continue to frakk in the light of this new information. And we already have a decision making method available to us. Those who prefer money to clean water will allow drilling, those who don't will not. Royalty rates and quite probably the natural gas price will change to reflect those individual decisions.
Everyone gets what they want: well, actually, not quite everyone. There are those who will insist that they should get to decide what values everyone else should have. Those who insist that their values for clean water in Wyoming should prevail over and above the values for clean water and gas decided upon by those who actually live in the gas fields of Wyoming. These people won't get what they want because they won't be able to impose their values upon other people.
But then allowing people to live their own lives by the lights of their own values is what being a good little liberal is all about. So we don't actually want or need to listen to those who are so illiberal as to try and over ride those values of others, do we?
DAN BROWN'S novels love the image of TRUMPETS-----lot's of references to JERICHO'S WALLS COME TUMBLING DOWN ------as we discuss often in detail---the goals of MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE including END TIMES DEPOPULATION ----has been in progress throughout CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA. It is the far-right wing global banking 1% FAKE GREEN REVOLUTION ------it is ONE WORLD ONE ENERGY/TECHNOLOGY GRID making it impossible for our 99% of WE THE PEOPLE to access ordinary infrastructure needs including FOOD AND ENERGY.
One thing we know will open the door for ordinary disease vectors once eliminated by vaccine and public health ---now being allowed to gain traction and spread worldwide------our US 99% of WE THE PEOPLE have weakened immune systems from too much GATEWAY MEDICINE.
These are the mechanisms for meeting global banking 1% goals of DEPOPULATION------so, let's look at REAL PUBLIC POLICY and not be made FEARFUL by novels creating FAKE DISASTER situations.
The second issue with these goals of TRANSHUMANISM-----DEPOPULATION OF NATURAL HUMANS-----is how deeply entrenched into our US national media, cultural arts, and research coming from far-right wing global banking MENDICIUM hedge fund universities that there really is a THREAT FROM OVER-POPULATION. These global banking 5% freemason/Greek players/pols are selling these FAKE DATA----FAKE NEWS as hard as they can.
All these END TIMES -----REVELATIONS depopulation policies are MOVING FORWARD in all US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES ----our local city councils/county councils with mayors and county executives are installing all these ONE WORLD for only the global 1% policies.

We posted an article that correctly DEBUNKS MALTHIUS and his population studies. In Dan Brown's INFERNO we see an actual POPULATION GRAPH both the WHO character----and the EVIL TRANSHUMANIST GENIUS use as REAL POPULATION DATA. If we look at this graph what WE SEE is a graph of EXTREME WEALTH EXTREME POVERTY from these few decades of CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA.
The graph shows a flat line with expedental growth from 1980s to present. That flat line soars. We are told that flat line was population growth---and indeed, human population has maintained equilibrium. Then we are told by DAN BROWN'S characters that the SPIKE in 1990s was POPULATION when the spike was EXTREME WEALTH---------
What happens to flat line steady population stats when extreme wealth and power hits? Well, we can look at population stats during last ROBBER BARON sacking and looting followed by civil unrest civil wars----followed by MADMEN as far-right wing global corporate HITLER/STALIN/MAO FASCISM and we see DEPOPULATION.
SIMON writing for global banking 1% PRE-CHRISTIAN CATO, NERO, SENECA---------CATO INSTITUTE------being LIBERTARIAN is trying to sell the idea that a MARX/LENIN/ENGELS were not into depopulation when of course they set the stage for it. Please do not believe there is s 'left libertarianism' at play------SIMON is pretending LIBERTARIANS are SOCIAL BENEFIT in not wanting DEPOPULATION.
'Julian Simon (late professor of business administration at the University of Maryland wrote in a policy report for the Cato Institute – a non-profit public policy research foundation'.
'We are left with the policies of George or those of Marx/Engels. All three wrote against Malthus'.
It is SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM that is driving OLD WORLD KINGS to use economics to depopulate.
This is FAKE LEFT political discussion.
It is Bernie Sanders and the FAKE OUR REVOLUTION crowd morphing from far-right wing Clinton neo-liberalism to far-right wing LIBERTARIAN MARXISM.......all those people loving DAN BROWN'S INFERNO----and THE PLAGUE.
Marx and Engels: Scientific Socialism 1848 1884
Click the links for timelines and resources
Science and materialism Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Friedrich Engels (1820-1895) are the creators of what they called "scientific socialism". As you are reading this document try to work out what they thought made their theories scientific, and whether you agree with them.
It seems to me that they thought their theory was scientific because of its content, because of the kind of theory it is. This is what they focus on, rather than issues such as empirical method.
One feature Marx and Engels stressed was that their theory was materialist, not religious, or idealist. Because they tried to explain history by looking at the material conditions of human existence their theory is called: historical materialism.
The religious views of history they criticised were the Jewish and Christian accounts found in the Bible. In the mid 19th century many people saw science as the opponent of religion.
The idealism they criticised was mainly Hegel's philosophy of history. Hegel argued that history is not meaningless chance, but a rational process - spirit or mind making itself real in history. Marx and Engels thought the material world determines our ideas rather than our ideas determining the material world.
To explore what this means, read the extracts from Hegel that illustrate his idealist view of history and compare them to the summary of historical materialism.
Historical materialism was not the only materialist theory developed in the 19th century. The other major one was Darwin's theory of evolution. Marx and Engels thought of their theory as complementary to evolutionary theory.
We will discuss in detail not so much the goals of depopulation which we discuss often----but how global banking 1% is using cultural FADS to hide and lie about the goals MOVING FORWARD. We try to educate by using a simple phrase-----ONE WORLD FOR ONLY THE GLOBAL 1%.
We discuss how ONE WORLD ONE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY GRID will indeed be used for global business for only global 1%. The goals of SUPER-DUPER BIG DEAD HEAD-----replacing the need for HUMAN GENIUS is real.
What DAN BROWN does in INFERNO is create an EVIL GENIUS who in the end of the novel is transformed into a MISUNDERSTOOD RATIONALIST. So, his efforts may have been MORAL-----SAVING HUMANITY say the novels heroes WHO character ----as too LANGFORD from HARVARD.
The FALSE morality in EVIL GENIUS releasing an airborne VIRUS was this---it would infect all 100% of people ---rich and poor---powerful and weak. MOVING FORWARD has that same goal----but not for those global banking 1% OLD WORLD KINGS AND QUEENS who are the one's needing their 1000BC DNA placed on the extinction list.
We want to be clear----so far everything called GMO has caused mass collapse of population groups it targets-----crops, virus/bacteria/animal manipulations will cause natural disaster----not IMPROVING THE HUMAN SPECIES.
Transhumanism, and What it Means for Humanity
There’s a lot of really cool stuff on this website. We have robots, powered prosthetics, genetic engineering, and so much more. Googling for any of this stuff could have brought you here, but that’s not actually what this site is about.
Instead, it’s about a philosophy and an overarching idea about what it means to be human, and our destiny as a species. It re-imagines what it means to be human and how we can plot our way into the future. It’s a philosophy that holds at its core the belief that human beings can transcend their limitations to become something more than they are.
The Hand of Fate
Why are we the way we are? Human beings are the results of a long evolutionary process that spans billions of years into the past. We are the most intelligent and arguably most successful species to emerge from the vast variety of life on Earth; the result of an unbroken chain of evolutionary successes.
This does not mean that we’re the end of that chain, however. Humanity has room for improvement in many different ways.
Taking it Day-by-Day
Over the course of history and especially during the 20th century, our knowledge of the universe and our own biology has improved dramatically.
The list of diseases that we cannot cure or manage grows shorter every year. We can restore hearing to those who would have been deaf 100 years ago. Recently we’ve started doing the same for the blind. The average lifespan is now steadily climbing to the natural limit our genetics and current bodies will allow.
We are steadily mastering the art of how to make humans who are broken in some way whole again. Over the coming decades advancements in genetic engineering,biotechnology, AI, robotics, and many other scientific disciplines will likely eradicate most if not all the things that can go wrong with a human being.
We Have the Technology
Already people have realized you don’t have to stop at restoring people to “normality”. Since technological development marches ever on, why not make people better than they were before?
For instance, why not give people sensory acuity that goes beyond what nature gives us? Seeing in infrared or hearing ultrasound are examples. Instead of prosthetics that give our limbs back, why not make those limbs stronger and faster?
One of the most important aspects of transhumanism is delaying or abolishing death itself. Apart from injury and illness, aging is the main cause of death. As we eliminate the other two causes it will become the number one killer.
There are many reasons why we age and die, but in principle there is no reason why each of those factors cannot be addressed.
Who Wants To Live Forever?
Significantly extending the lives of human beings may be one of the most important breakthroughs we can make as a species. Many of the problems that we face are difficult to solve within a natural human lifespan.
Interstellar travel is one of these. Since it’s unclear if faster-than-light travel will ever be possible, the only other option that remains is to somehow endure the centuries in space. One way to do this is simply live longer.
Our relatively short lifespans also contribute to poor short-term decisions. Environmental problems such as global warming would bother people more if they thought they’d still be around in 100 or 200 years.
Do the Robot
Why struggle with a biological body at all? Another strong current of thought in the transhumanism world suggests that we should become machines ourselves, either by becoming cyborgs with a mix of mechanical and biological parts or by uploading copies of our minds into robot bodies or virtual worlds.
This is one of the most radical examples of being transhuman – becoming something wholly other than human.
Smarter Than the Average Bear
Not content to just make us physically better or extend our lives as we are, transhumanism also means increasing our intelligence, both as individual people and as a species. How this will be achieved is an open question at this point. Already today we have a class of drugs known as “nootropics” that have a small but measurable effect.
Today we have a number of emerging brain implants that are used for rehabilitation, but in the future brain implants may add abilities to the brain that it did not have before. Imagine being able to do mathematical calculations or learning any skill in an instant. As research on the neural language of the brain continues we’ll see more and more direct-implant brain augmentations. For example, in 2016 Bryan Johnson’s company Kernel raised $100m to develop an intelligence-boosting chip.
Of course, long before that it’s likely that we’ll have direct brain interfaces that will allow us to communicate with computers using nothing but the power of our brains. Direct stimulation of the visual cortex or optic nerves could pave the way to augmented and virtual reality without any external electronics.
Not History Yet
These are just some of the ideas that have come from the transhumanist movement over the years. The different applications, technologies, and fields of science are impossibly broad. But, they all still center around this one idea that human beings can be more than they are and only we have the power to change our own fate.
When did this school of thought begin? It’s hard to say, since the idea of transcendence is as old as humanity itself. Virtually all cultures have some idea that when we die or when we do certain things we become more than human. There are lots of legends where normal human beings become deified or somehow become something more, or other, than human.
The key difference is that transhumanism tells us that we can use technology to transcend our humanity. This is something that probably first emerged in science fiction in the 20th century, but actual scientists were also in on the idea from an early stage. It’s a logical progression of thought – once we can cure heart disease, what about hearts that never get sick? What about a heart that can pump twice as well?
While a long list of people have contributed to transhumanist thought, there are a few names that you should take note of if you really want to get into this field in a meaningful way.
The first person who has to be on such a list is not one of the earliest or even most important transhumanist thinkers. He is, however, one of the most readable ones and he’s probably done the most to make the public aware of transhumanism. That person is Raymond Kurzweil.
Yes, that’s the same Kurzweil from the company that makes music equipment and pioneered early voice-recognition technology. Kurzweil has written several books on transhumanism that soberly looks at the present and future of the technologies that underlie the movement.
Other notables include aging expert Aubrey de Grey, nanotech expert Eric Drexler, bioethicist George Dvorsky, and Hans Moravec. Not all of these people would label themselves as transhumanists, but their work and writing definitely plays an important role in transhumanist thought as a whole.
What Does it Mean to Be Transhumanist?
Asking what transhumanism is differs from asking what it means to see yourself as transhumanist.
First and foremost, before any of the technology stuff applies, transhumanism is a form of humanism. Many of the values humanism espouses are also present in transhumanism, they just apply to more than just human beings.
Transhumanism is more concerned with beings of a humanlike or greater intelligence level. In many transhumanist texts you’ll read about personhood and how an AI or a genetically-engineered animal may be smart enough to qualify for it. Many transhumanists may be bothered by the treatment of highly-intelligent animals such as chimpanzees and dolphins.
Equality, freedom of choice, freedom of thought, and an overall striving for the maximum well-being of all intelligences play a central role in much of transhumanism. In other words, someone who is pro-human augmentation but does not have any of these values doesn’t really qualify as a tran
ALL THAT FREEDOM, LIBERTY, JUSTICE FROM THE SAME GLOBAL BANKING 1% DISMANTLING ALL OF THE ABOVE IN WESTERN NATIONS?
The Future is Uncertain
Transhumanism has often been accused of being an irrational, almost religious movement for smart people. It’s utopian and unrealistic, they say. These critics of course miss one of the fundamental facts about transhumanists. Transhumanist don’t have dogma or an absolute belief in their desires coming true. There is no guarantee that any of the ways transhumanism thinks the world ought to be is how the world will be. However, to pursue a goal you have to define a goal.
There are many opponents to the ideas in transhumanism. Some people believe that humans should stay within the limitations of human biology and psychology. There are very good logical and philosophical arguments for this and we all should read them, but in general this opposition is driven by emotion and constrained thinking.
Make Yourself at Home
The rest of this site isn’t going to deal much with the philosophy of transhumanism, but more with all the cool things being created that could make a transhumanist future a reality. So even if you don’t agree with all or even any transhumanist ideas, you should still feel welcome to explore every inch of this site if you have any interest in the technologies themselves.
What matters is that you allow your imagination to go where we ourselves cannot or will not yet go.
