🦾 Toxic baby powder = 💸
Organizations that get too big start to crumble... we are seeing this in real time
There is a slightly new format below.
I think I like this one… it’s a bit easier to skim and digest and some commentary on a few links.
Change is good, yet we fight it.
Consistency is key.
Action is the foundation.
Comfort makes you weak.
Openness helps you grow. Closedness makes you fragile.
All life is motion and learning, these are inviolable principles of human existence.
Ignore them at your own peril. (That means DON’T ignore them!)
What to expect today:
More censorship… via feature removal.
Carbon is not the real threat…
Johnson & Johnson trying to get out of paying billions in legal fines… not surprised
📰 News 🚨
👼 Johnson & Johnson has invoked a Texas legal loophole in an attempt to protect the bulk of its corporate assets from claims that its baby powder caused ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
Big corporations are a byproduct of being the superpower after WW2. The promise to the American consumer was, “Trust us, we’ll take care of you.”
Americans got addicted to convenience and a constantly expanding barrage of product options.
Inherently, that’s great. It’s the free market doing its thing.
The problem always has been and still is the corruption and mingling of government.
This creates monopoly-like situations that lead to bigger-than-nature-would-allow corporations.
And I believe we are witnessing their collapse in real-time.
This is another example of our world moving to a more decentralized way of life.
We are going from peak centralization to decentralization, as history has done many times.
Things grow too big for their own good... then they crumble.
This is nothing new—it just feels that way to most people since few are students of history.
If you’re born into one world and it starts becoming another way, you fight it. You stick your head in the sand. You cling to your beliefs about why things should stay the way they are because that’s what you want.
Then you get left behind.
The masses are always the last to come on board, and only when it’s so painful that not switching hurts more.
📺 🤬 YouTube Is Banning All Content That Spreads Vaccine Misinformation
They put "misinformation" in the title as if they are the final say and "know."
The hubris is unbelievable.
Also, from this perspective comes the idea that we can't think for ourselves.
If their claims were valid, then they shouldn't care about censoring anything. The market and truth will always come out.
The idea that companies and even governments control information is fascism 101. IT's propaganda. It's nazism.
There are no exceptions here.
Free speech is the bedrock because it is humanity’s best defense against tyranny, and censorship and control of information is always the tyrant's primary tool of choice for controlling the masses

🍳 Cooking: Use more vinegar. Does your dish lack brightness or a flavor punch? You probably need some acid. Lemon/vinegar are excellent seasoning agents that most people don’t consider.
🏕 Being Prepared: Buy Bitcoin. Buy a few 1oz silver rounds. Buy Ammo. Buy knives. Buy a hatchet. Buy paracord. Buy a portable cooking stove. Buy fire starters. Buy matches. Buy extra water and food.

The Lawless State by Karl Hess
Read the entire article. Here are some of my highlights:
In terms of actual change, as a matter of fact, there hasn't been an election in the United States since its inception that has driven the country solidly onto a course toward less government and more liberty. Each, rather, has driven the country toward more government and less liberty.
Parties and promises notwithstanding, this is the way it is. To not recognize that one overpowering fact is to let the meaning of the entire political history of our time utterly escape you.
The nature of the state, the growth of government has been unchanged by politicians. Only the politicians themselves have changed. Too many Americans for too long have been diverted by the changes of faces and factions. They have permitted their attention to be diverted from the unchanging problem of government itself.
To the extent that they continue to be so diverted, government has a free hand to continue its development toward despotism.
Particularly now, with one more election and with one more chorus of paeans and plaints, one more magic-lantern display of changing images in an unchanging show, those who profess an interest in liberty need to turn away from illusions and shadows and look at the actual and concrete facts of government here and around the world.

*I’m trying a shorter response style for this section.
Wind tower: Vestas, a Danish manufacturer, announced plans to build the largest wind turbine in the world in 2022, and expects it to power ~20k homes. #CLEAN-ENERGY Source: The Hustle
This is not hashtag CLEAN-ENERGY.
This is a joke.
Wind turbines require a massive amount of fossil fuels to produce and ship and dispose of.
There is no natural way to dispose of them, so it's becoming an environmental disaster to do something with these huge things that have short lifespans (~10ish years).
The rare Earth materials mined out of the ground to build these monstrosities destroy local environments. So locals live next to pools of toxic materials, not to mention all the other destruction from mining.
So basically, the poor suffer while making a few of the rich in the west "feel good" based on a false environmental narrative that's literally nothing to do with the environment and is instead based on politics, money, and greed, as it always is.
It's also an example of how the climate narrative is about carbon, something completely unproven and mostly debunked if you look at it even a little bit. (And any impact humans have on carbon is negligible—BTW: Earth is cooler now than in MANY periods in the past).
So you can destroy the environment and use up a bunch of fossil fuels as long as you get to prop up some unproven, non-economically viable "green" solution that will run for maybe ten years at best?
It's such a joke.
This nonsense reminds me of the food pyramid. When you finally see how fraudulent the food premiered is, and when you look into "research" and "studies" and grants and funding and how Big Food and Big Pharma pays for it all, you see precisely WHY we have something as backward as a food pyramid.
Green energy is the same.
I'd like to see less POLLUTION of water, land and less destructive mass agriculture. I believe that's the real threat, with the threat to our soil at the top.
