Space Junk Threats Highlighted by Smashed Russian Satellite; FCC Approves Up to 65,000 More Internet Satellites Anyway – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/11/space-junk-threats-highlighted-by-smashed-russian-satellite-fcc-approves-up-to-65000-more-internet-satellites-anyway.html – “It was recently reported that insurance companies are less willing to insure satellites due to collision risks.  Of course, warnings about space junk from satellites and similar vehicles have been ongoing for years (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).  In 2020, a lawsuit was filed against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regarding satellite deployment (see 1, 2, 3); a few months ago, an astronomy professor filed an amicus brief with it.  In March 2021, a petition was also filed with the FCC to pause satellite deployment due to various safety risks.  Nevertheless, tens of thousands of satellites and similar vehicles have been and continue to be approved for launching in the U.S. to blast biologically and environmentally harmful 5G and Wi-Fi at Earth (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18).  Of course, the recent Russian satellite situation has highlighted risks of already dangerously high levels of space junk.  Additionally, space junk could also reduce the quality of internet connections.  That would defeat the purpose of launching more satellites to “bridge the digital divide”, right?.. The Russian missile test that shattered a dead satellite this week highlights a growing threat of space debris just as companies such as SpaceX and Boeing Co. make plans to launch as many as 65,000 commercial spacecraft into orbit in coming years.”

Taxpayers to Be Held Liable After Innocent Man Locked Up, Forcibly Drugged for YEARS Because No One Cared to ID Him – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/11/taxpayers-to-be-held-liable-after-innocent-man-locked-up-forcibly-drugged-for-years-because-no-one-cared-to-id-him.html – “Every time Joshua Spriestersbach tried telling the doctors, nurses, and staff at a state hospital in Hawaii that they had the wrong man, no one listened and his protests were answered with drugs. After nearly three years, the blithering idiots running the hospital finally figured out their blunder and instead of fixing their mistake, they covered it up by quietly kicking Spriestersbach out on the street with only 50 cents to his name… Now, after they tried covering up their mistakes, Spriestersback is suing and he will undoubtedly win… In a lawsuit filed Sunday in U.S. District Court in Honolulu that Hawaii officials apparently seem unconcerned with their actions and haven’t even responded to a petition seeking to correct his records to ensure the error never happens again… Spriestersbach’s lawsuit alleges false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, malicious prosecution, abuse of process and other claims, according to KHON… ‘Prior to January 2020, not a single person acted on the available information to determine that Joshua was telling the truth – that he was not Mr. Castleberry,’ the lawsuit said. ‘Instead, they determined that Joshua was delusional and incompetent just because he refused to admit that he was Mr. Castleberry and refused to acknowledge Mr. Castleberry’s crimes’.”

The Great Narrative and The Metaverse, Part 1: A Dystopian Vision of the Future – by Derrick Brozehttps://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/great-narrative-metaverse-dystopian-vision-future/ – “As the World Economic Forum prepares for the return of their annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the “international organization for Public-Private cooperation” is launching the next phase of The Great Reset agenda – The Great Narrative… On November 11th and 12th, the World Economic Forum held a 2-day meeting called “The Great Narrative” in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to discuss “longer-term perspectives” and “co-create a narrative that can help guide the creation of a more resilient, inclusive and sustainable vision for our collective future”. The WEF gathered futurists, scientists, and philosophers from around the world to dream up their vision of how to reset the world and imagine what it might look like in the next 50 years. The discussions will be collected and published in a forthcoming book, The Great Narrative, in January 2022… The release of The Great Narrative book will coincide with the annual WEF meeting on January 17 to 21st, 2022 in Davos, Switzerland, with the focus “Working Together, Restoring Trust”. According to the WEF, the ‘meeting will focus on accelerating stakeholder capitalism, harnessing the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and ensuring a more inclusive future of work’… ‘The idea of a great narrative is something that the French philosopher Jean-Francois Lyotard called a “grand narrative,” (aka “metanarrative“) which,  according to Philo-Notes, “functions to legitimize power, authority, and social customs” — everything that the great reset is trying to achieve… Authoritarians use great narratives to legitimize their own power, and they do this by claiming to have knowledge and understanding that speaks to a universal truth… At the same time, authoritarians use these grand narratives in an “attempt to translate alternative accounts into their own language and to suppress all objections to what they themselves are saying.’.. With this understanding, the WEF’s call for a “Great Narrative” should be seen for what it truly is – an attempt to displace all other visions of the future of humankind by placing the WEF and their partners at the heart of a narrative which paints them as the heroes of our time.”

The Great Narrative And The Metaverse, Part 2: Will The Metaverse End Human Freedom? – by Derrick Broze – https://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/great-narrative-metaverse-part-2-will-metaverse-end-human-freedom/As the World Economic Forum announces the need for a “Great Narrative” to unite the people around their Technocratic ideals, the public is learning of the WEF and their partners’ plans to build a dystopian virtual world known as The MetaverseIn mid-November, Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, sat with Mohammad Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, to announce the launch of The Great Narrative. This announcement represents the next phase in the WEF’s “Great Reset” agenda…‘We are here to develop the Great Narrative, a story for the future,’ Schwab stated during a panel titled Narrating the Future. ‘We meet today to develop a great narrative; a story for the future. I quote His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, when H.H. said “The future belongs to those who can imagine it, design it, and execute it.” We are here now to imagine the future, design the future, and then execute.’.. If the Technocrats have their way, we will have a physical world made up of smart cities where you will own nothing and be happy, with privacy and individuality a thing of the past. The smart cities could potentially lock people in their homes and shutdown essential services during Climate Lockdowns or flare ups of the latest COVID variant. Meanwhile, in your smart home you could ignore the problems of the physical world by wearing goggles, contact lenses, or, eventually, an implant that plugs you direct into the Metaverse.”
