It never fails to surprise me how human instinct can sense differences in the atmosphere, events, and social happenings without really knowing why, or what is happening.
My last two posts discussed the strange "silence" out in the media that has raised my own curiosity level to the extreme. I wondered if it was 'official' silence, or just perceived.
It turns out there is much more to come about "silence" . It seems I am not alone.
I'll refer the reader of Incoming Bytes to a new article in "Before it's News" and encourage all of our readers to think for yourselves...and pay a lot of attention to the article:
"12 Things That the Mainstream Media is Being Strangely Quiet about Right Now".
http://members.beforeitsnews.com/story/730/999 The "12 things" are listed short-listed below for your convenience, but the reader really should read the article in its total form.
1) The crisis at the Fort Calhoun nuclear facility in Nebraska
2) Bombing in Yemen and Pakistan and rumors of the US invasion of Libya
3) Fukushima in Japan: the nuclear crisis is worsening, far worse than Chernobyl
4) Christian groups are considered to be a threat to National Security
5) Flooding in China is the worst in 55 years
6) The Dodd-Frank Act is closing down Forex gold/silver trading by July 15, 2011
7) Huge cracks in the earth 3km long have appeared in the earth in Peru, and a huge crack has appeared in Michigan
8) Arizona wildfire is now over half a million acres
9) North Korea has tested a "super EMP weapon"
10 "Active shooter drills" are being conducted American public schools without notice
11) " Emergency preparedness" initiatives for NASA employees and their families are being conducted
12 NO-fly zones--40 of them--have been declared by the FAA in the last week.
What is really going on here? Clearly our instincts work overtime even when our media does not, or is ordered not to. Why are public officials sanctioning the media "SILENCE"? Are all disasters, events, and threats now on the " information based on need to know" principle? Is "Big Brother" deciding what we shall or shall not be informed about?
Meantime, back in the fog surrounding the garden, the beans are growing peacefully, cabbage is doing just fine, the corn is growing in leaps and bounds, and everything else is sprouting in the finest possible fashion, with nary a news flash.
I have to wonder which of these two subjects is more valuable to me as a human being? Which do I have the most control over? I ask again, is it better to be uninformed? Big Brother seems to think so.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
