Simon Sinek explains what’s missing with the Millennial generation, with Tom Bilyeu
Yes. When there were no cellphones, people had to plan their days ahead and had to be consistent, because they could not change or “adjust” their plans on the go. So, they had to plan their future, develop timelines and structures. They learned to be reliable and responsible. They learned to do things on time and meet deadlines. They had to do math mentally and manually with no access to a calculator which only requires the input but not the process. And they had to remember things in their heads. And learn with understanding, not by memorizing, because they could not retrieve information on any topic from internet within seconds, whenever they needed it. So, they learned to connect the dots and draw conclusions.
It’s like with the physical shape – you have to practice and work out, because “if you don’t use it, you lose it.”
One more thing – cellphone addicted people lose connection with the surrounding real world (natural and social) because they begin to live their lives in a virtual reality. First cartoons and video games, then TV, internet and cellphones. No interaction translates into no relationship. Sad. When I bike at the MacMaster grounds, I see students walking around “submerged” in their cellphones, not seeing what is around, not enjoying their surroundings, not connecting with real world, not talking to each other, walking into trees and cars – (the last one being a habit acquired during childhood thanks to the cross guards, which results in lack of basic self-protection and survival skills – but this is a slightly different topic).
“There is a campaign under way to essentially destroy the public education system along with every aspect of human life and attitudes and thought that involve social solidarity. It’s being done in all sorts of ways. One is simply by underfunding. So, if you can make the public schools really rotten, people will look for an alternative. Any service that’s going to be privatized, the first thing you do is make it malfunction so people can say, “We want to get rid of it. It’s not running. Let’s give it to Lockheed.” — Noam Chomsky, The Progressive Magazine, September 1999, p.37 –
Shortly after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, the Canadian Public Affairs Channel (CPAC) televised a speech delivered to the Toronto business leaders by a president of one of the major Canadian banks. Addressing the necessity of restructuring, he also mentioned education. He said, “Our education has outgrown the capacity of our economy in terms of employment.” The meaning of this statement was clear: we had too many educated people, our economy did not need them, we should not over-invest in education. In other words: our education was too good.
“On Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that marijuana will become legal nationwide starting October 17. Canada’s Senate passed the federal government’s bill to legalize marijuana nationwide Tuesday.”
I am a senior citizen and a resident of Dundas. I have been buying food in this store for at least 12 years. They used to have expiry date printed on most food products, including the meats, sausages, and cheese. Then, they replaced the “Expiry date” with the “Best before” date. A few years ago, I was told by the manager that the “Best before” date allows them to keep food items on the shelf and sell them even past the date indicated as “best before”. Nowadays, the “Best before” date is not always shown. Instead, you have the “Packaged on” date, which is the date and time that you are buying it. (Or, sometimes, a meaningless code.) This is useless, as it does not tell you how fresh the product is – it could have been sitting on their shelf for weeks and you would not know about it based on the “Packaged on” date.
Yes, Mr. Zuckerberg, despite all your money, there is and authority above you and laws that you have to obey, whether you like it or not. So don’t react with anger, you are the one who is wrong.
During the last six months, my FB account has been “blocked” three times, (first for 24 hours, then for three days, and then for 30 days), as a result of purely political comments I had placed under articles in Russian news media with FB comments logins. I checked their “community rules” and did not find anything related to my comments. I followed the FB own guidelines to dispute these decisions but never received any answer from them. I can confirm that they are deeply engaged in political censorship. This violates our freedom of speech and our democracy that depends on it.
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is an agency for the deception of the public at public expense. Almost any snatch of a CBC news broadcast or public policy discussion will, on examination, be found to encapsulate a lie.
A meme currently being foisted on the public by the CBC is that trade protectionism hurts the public by raising prices. The inference being that higher prices due to trade protectionism hurt every Canadian.
That is the lie.

Partition of Syria has always been plan “A” for the US. Now, it has been renamed as Plan “B”, but it still is the same plan. The US wants to control the NE part of Syria for two reasons:
- That’s where the Syrian oil and gas deposits are located;
- That’s where the projected new pipelines, connecting the Gulf States through Turkey to Europe, are to merge.

Here is an extremely interesting article on the topic of education in the US, recently published by Global Research. This is an important information for parents whose children attend educational institutions at various levels: – The Dumbing Down of America – By Design
I am aware that United States and Canada are not the only Western countries in which this phenomenon is taking place in a highly organized and coordinated manner. As an elementary public school teacher in Ontario, I have witnessed a similar “reform” in our education system that was initiated by the Mike Harris conservative government in late 1990’s.
It is entirely possible that some influential “elites” carry out a depopulation project and that the governments go along because it eliminates the need of providing populations with jobs, food, and shelter. It also solves the problem of paying pensions to retiring baby boomers. Of course, they could not pay our pensions for XX years, if we were healthy and lived long. Why? Because they had already spent the money. Also, because the inflation has eaten the money.

As the winter approaches and soon we will see, again, closed trails and native hunters roaming our conservation area based on a fraudulent “treaty rights” claim, here is a reminder of the work that was done on this topic by a group of researchers who oppose the annual hunt:
Since the chemtrails in our neck of the woods appeared in mid-1990-s, a drastic reduction of fish population was noticed in lakes and rivers in Ontario, Canada. This was “explained” in various ways, for example as a result of winter kill, but there were some warm winters afterwards and the fish population did not recover.
