Zach Vorhies is a former Google engineer who after 8 years with the company decided he had had enough and released nearly 1,000 pages of documents detailing Google's ambitions to be something much more than the world's #1 search engine. His leak should have had the media clamoring to interview him - a high-profile whistleblower from one of the world's most powerful companies - but thanks to a mainstream media smear-job, only a handful of outlets have dared to give him a platform to share what he knows - information that affects all of us and our very future as a free society. The Google documents can be accessed at Project Veritas here https://www.projectveritas.com/google-document-dump/

Jonathan Haidt is the Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business.

He received his B. A. from Yale University in 1985 and his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. He then did post-doctoral research at the University of Chicago and in Orissa, India. He was a professor at the University of Virginia from 1995 until 2011, when he joined the Stern School of Business.

Haidt is a social psychologist whose research focuses on morality––its emotional foundations, cultural variations, and developmental course. He began his career studying the negative moral emotions, such as disgust, shame, and vengeance, but then moved on to the understudied positive moral emotions, such as admiration, awe, and moral elevation.

A Slow Death by 5G Wireless Technology

Progressive Radio Network, July 9, 2019

During the past year, Senate hearings leading up to the roll out of 5G wireless technology have made it quite clear that the race to capture first prize in the Internet of Things has little do to with popular consumer demands for improved internet access. Being called the fourth industrial revolution, the hype is that 5G will provide internet speeds up to one hundred times faster than 4G. Yet aside from the idealized and perhaps hyperbolic benefits of faster internet connections and downloads, 5G is best understood within the context of the US' competitive race against China to establish global wireless dominance.  The Obama administration's FCC, under the influence of the telecommunication industry's insider Tom Wheeler, who served as the chair of the agency, launched the Spectrum Frontiers rules to mandate the 5G rollout as a "national priority." Therefore, rather than the fundamental incentive to improve the lives of citizens, more important is 5G's role to reinforce American global economic expansionism and military hegemony. For past presidents, and Trump in particular, economic figures hold all-consuming importance. One estimate claims 5G will bring over $12 trillion into the global economy, about $3.5 trillion in the US while providing 22 million new jobs. While 5G surely holds the promise of a huge windfall for the economy, these benefits will be eventually be neutralized by medical and environmental catastrophes.

The Race Towards Extinction:  Climate Change versus the 5G Roll Out

 

Richard Gale and Gary Null

Progressive Radio Network, April 15, 2019

 By now, most of us should have come to realize that plant, animal and human life is not eternal on this planet. For several decades atmospheric scientists have been warning that the orgy of anthropogenic release of greenhouse gases, if it is permitted to continue at current rates, will bring life as we know to an end. Where scientists disagree, and where there remains growing debate, concerns the timeline before global warming's acceleration cascades into runaway conditions leading towards our demise. Nevertheless, one thing seems certain, for anyone who bothers to follow the steady flow of climate change reports and updates, every year conditions are becoming more dire than the previous years. And as scientists consistently have had to reevaluate their earlier predictions, the situation is turning more drastic.
