Facebook, Google and Microsoft follow China’s Communist Business Model

While the Chinese work within a tightly controlled and impenetrable firewall, which allows them to build 5G networks and software platforms, Big Tech strives for dominating the markets for money, and not too long into the future, for complete control of the internet outside Chinese walls. The XXI century’s equivalent of fossil fuels is data, your data. The new wars being fought as we speak are for access and ...Read full article...

Immunotherapy goes beyond treating cancer

Why are parents not able to educate anymore?

Mothers and fathers don’t seem to be academically or psychologically prepared to educate. Parents were good educators in the twentieth century, especially at the beginning, when they had a single priority: that their children would survive without starving.

Por que os pais não conseguem mais educar?

Os pais investem na educação infantil de seus filhos como se fossem um fundo de pensão. Mães e pais não parecem estar academicamente ou psicologicamente preparados para educar. Não há coerência, capacidade de relativizar e isso torna o processo educativo dos filhos em experiências inflexíveis e ridículas. Os pais eram bons educadores no século XX, especialmente no começo, quando tinham uma única prioridade: que seus filhos sobrevivessem sem passar ...Read full article...

The Real Story about Ukraine

Recent history about Ukraine, as portrayed by the mainstream media, is far from accurate, not to say that it is totally wrong. Thankfully, honest video and film producers still exist and are able to document what the Establishment does not want the public to learn about their plans and modus operandi. What happened in Ukraine is, well, the same thing that happens to small defenseless nations: They are toyed ...Read full article...

Why Big Tech wants your data?

In his book 1984, George Orwell describes a world where surveillance is everywhere, even in people’s bedrooms. There are microphones that listen to everything and screens that record it all while brainwashing victims into submission.

One ...Read full article...

Airports are neutral islands within countries that operate under their own rules. Facilities at transportation hubs such as airports have changed over the years. They’ve become more comfortable, cozy, modern and above all convenient places for travelers. With the advent of technology, airports ...Read full article...

Violência como sinal de rebelião social

Atos mitológicos e romantizantes de violência contra oponentes políticos ou ideológicos – algo que muitas vezes é feito pela mídia e especialistas – ajuda a multidão a assumir identidades coletivas que, apesar de populares, não são virtuosas, mas servem ao seu propósito de cometer atos hediondos. Um caso em questão é Antifa nos Estados Unidos, mas os movimentos sociais são mais efetivamente usados ​​como ferramentas para a violência na ...Read full article...
