What if we just sped up your life by a magnitude of 5? Would that be a good thing? Well, our society is on the cusp of a big change and that is the technological change from 4G to 5G.

What is 5G? 5G is the fifth generation technology for cellular networks that is currently being assembled. Once the infrastructure is in place, 5G technology will greatly expand bandwidth allowing for a faster internet and for much greater amounts of cyber information being communicated. This will revolutionize our modern world, opening the floodgates to the latest technology and everything will be greatly sped up.

Right now the floodgates of technology are held shut by the limitations of 4G networking capabilities.However, the technology exists in tech towns like Silicon Valley and many others to revolutionize our societies. Driverless cars, wireless VR, wireless homes and much more is coming to your life, your workplace, your city. Computers will do the thinking for us through artificial intelligence, all made possible through 5G.

Yes, that's right. Computers will think for us. Did you know that computers can think? You say, “How can a computer think when it is not alive?” Well, it might as well be alive. Artificial intelligence is so far developed that it would shock us all to know just how much computers can analyze, forecast, organize, plan and command.

For computers to organize and command our lives, 5G needs to be operational. 5G is that point of connection between technology and our personal world. 5G brings this technology to us, facilitating the big change.
“Change” will take on new meaning with the enablement of 5G. Wave after wave of technology will roll in, affecting everything. Your employer, and also the government, will have many new tools to micromanage your life. Managers and foremen will delight in all of the new tools, that is until the next wave of technology rolls in and sweeps them away too and our new manager is a computer.

Welcome to 5G. This technology will also expose us to new threats. Cyber bullying, cyber hacking, cryptojacking, cyber terrorism and cyber war will be propelled to the next level. Cyber criminals never dreamed of all of the new opportunity that this technology opens up to them.

Do we need more technology? Do we really need more technology? Is your life going to be better for it? Everything will be faster but will it be better? Do you need a wireless smart home to have a home? Do you need cell phone reception that reaches Everest's peak? Do you need a driverless car to be happy? Imagine the NASCAR race driver who is told, “You don't need to drive the car anymore, just sit in the driver's seat and look out the window.” “What if I like driving the car?” he responds.

Do we need more technology or does our government need more technology to reign and rope us in? Some would say “Yea, but 5 G is progress.” Really? Progress for who? Be careful that your life, your livelihood, your future is not wiped out by “progress.”

5G is also about making us more globaly connected. It will streamline globalism. In this new world that we are on the cusp of, what you do tomorrow will depend on what happens in the financial markets of China, India or Bangladesh, today. What you do tomorrow will depend on the political winds in Russia or Turkey, today. What you do tomorrow will depend on political and economic shifts in Saudi Arabia or the European Union, today. What you are to do in response will be calculated by a thinking computer, in a nanosecond, and you will be made to know the where, what, how and why on a need-to-know basis.

I happen to like the freedom that low technology delivers. They haven't got their cyber tentacles around me yet. I would be fine with going back to 3G or better yet, going off grid.

Off-grid is the ultimate way of saying “NO!” to the governmental, institutional, regulatory, technological, elitist dominators who are trying to reign and rope us all in. The person who is off-grid is unplugged from the whole system, from the entire system. He or she is turned off. Turned off to control and turned on to freedom. Are you turned off?

Many forward-thinking people today are embracing an off grid lifestyle. One that involves living remotely, running a homestead, having a hobbyfarm, raising chickens, living off of the land. Off grid living may still include some technology. Solar panels bring electricity to many homes. These people are not running away from the world; they are creating their own little world, a better, freer world that is free of manipulation, cyber bullying, control, and rat-racing.

“Less is more.” Whether you or I take the plunge into off-grid life, or not, it is still possible to live a more minimalistic lifestyle. Any amount of readjusting to a minimalistic lifestyle is a step away from the system and a stepping forward to freedom and independence. Minimalism is scaling back. It is embracing a life that is less cluttered and that needs less. A life that needs less also costs less. The minimalists find themselves more and more free, expectation-wise and financially. This may look different for each one of us but I encourage you to start unplugging, get turned off, scale it back and pursue a minimalistic lifestyle. I am trying to as well. God bless you.

5G GOODBY SECURITY, HELLO CHINA

Today you sit at your secure computer. You have a firewall set up. You bought anti-virus software. Your online banking info is encrypted. You have the latest version of your operating system. You turn off your computer when you are not using it. You fold your hands and say, “I am safe.”

Well sorry to burst your bubble but there is a wrecking ball swinging towards you. It is called 5G. What is 5G? 5G is the fifth generation of cellular networking that is rapidly being developed to replace 4G networks. It will increase bandwidth and allow for much more cyber information to be communicated in shorter periods of time. Everything will be greatly sped up and we will be propelled into a new age of internet capability.

The problem is that the world is moving way too quickly towards 5G and has gotten its one foot tripped up by its other as it is headed for a toppling over. 5G is moving forward without addressing serious problems and threats inherent in the system.

What threats are inherent in the system? There are a number of serious concerns. For one, most 5G is not yet “quantum resistant.” One of the up-and-coming waves of technology that will hit us after 5G is quantum computers. This is a completely different kind of computing technology than what we use today. It has new capabilities, one of which is to undo encryption. Right now most personal information (including your banking info)on the internet is encrypted in some way. This protects you from having it deciphered by a hacker. However it is believed that quantum computers will be able to undo 99% of encryption. That means that unless something is done, you have a 1% chance of protecting your personal info.

Criminals, cyber-bullies, cyber-terrorists, and other hackers are tickled pink over the greater access and expanded capabilities that 5G will afford them. Hacking and crypto-jacking will be taken to a new level with 5G technology. Spam, malware and scamming will potentially increase exponentially.

Bad news, just wait, it gets worse. While society is racing forward and tripping over its own feet, it is about to fall into the arms of the communist party of China. Why do I say this? Because China is at the head of this technology. The concern is because Chinese hardware and software could contain backdoor surveillance components to it. In fact, the hardware could be made to shut down on hidden instructions. Don't Chinese manufacturers work independently from their government? No not necessarily. China's Internet Security Law compels Chinese companies to help the communist government whenever called upon. In China, the government takes the right to do anything it wants and answers to no one.

China has soared to the top of the technology ladder with its companies Huawei and ZTE being the most ready providers for this new technology. The free world is lagging behind; however the European companies Nokia and Ericsson claim that they can also deliver this technology. There are at least 50 countries that have signed up with China's inexpensive, ready-to-go 5G provider, Huawei.

How did Huawei beat out their competitors? Well, in China they don't really have competitors. All wireless carriers are state owned and, if necessary, are bailed out by the state. Huawei has been accused of intellectual property theft  and corporate espionage, as well as copying proprietary source code from Cisco Systems equipment. China doesn't play by the same rules as the rest of the world and so they rise to the top.

Would China, not playing by the rules, turn other nations off from buying the technology off of them? The United States under president Donald Trump has stopped his country from using Huawei for 5G. Canada is undecided. However, many of the European countries, and others, have signed up with China. Their eyes are on the money and on the speed by which it can be set up. They want Huawei's ready-to-go system. However, Trump has thrown another curve ball at China by banning U.S. machinery and software from being used for manufacturing semiconductors for Huawei.

As the United States and China wrestle over the new technology, other countries are rushing in to buy 5G. Canada is holding out, but for how long? If we cave and go with a Chinese 5G, then be ready for the wrecking ball because most of 5G is not quantum resistant. Encryption will be obsolete, your personal information will be available like never before. Cyber criminals will be handed an incredible technology to propel them forward. Spam, malware and scamming will be facilitated like never before. China will be rewarded for its intellectual property theft  and corporate espionage. China has its fingers on the controls and we will be subject to their surveillance as we go flying into their arms in one big fumbling fall, tripping over our own feet.

Can we just skip 5G?

IS 5G HARMFUL TO YOUR HEALTH?

One vigorous debate over the years is over the question of whether or not low frequency radiation is detrimental to our health. This is not a debate that we can ignore. Micro-waves, routers, smart meters and cell phones all emit low frequency radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is commonly classified into two types: ionizing radiation and non iodizing radiation.

Everyone agrees that exposure to ionizing radiation causes damage to living tissue, and may result in radiation sickness, cell damage, radiation burns, cancer and death.

Debate persists over the dangers of non iodizing radiation. Many have accepted the position that non-iodizing radiation is harmless because the United Nations World Health Organization does not broadly condemn it in clear black and white language. However, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is also a part of the United Nations, has admitted that there could be some dangers posed by non-ionizing radiation to humans. In summary, they say “The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer1, associated with wireless phone use.” (May 31, 2011, press release n° 208 31 may 2011 iarc classifies radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans).

Wikipedia offers a chart that graphs the source, frequency and biological effects of different frequencies of non-iodizing radiation. This can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-ionizing_radiation. This gives very conservative estimates that those sounding the alarms for the dangers of low frequency radiation would say do not go far enough. How much radiation will 5G towers emit? We don't exactly know. Low estimates range from 24 GHz and 90 GHz frequencies. However, it has been suggested (not by wikipedia) that 5G cell towers could emit frequencies as high as 300 GHz. According to Wikipedia this would put them on the same level as Mobile/cell phones, microwave ovens, cordless phones, millimeter waves, airport millimeter scanners, motion detectors, long-distance telecommunications, radar, and Wi-Fi. Again, according to Wikipedia, this would lead merely to a heating of body tissue. However many scientists and doctors warn of potentially much more dire consequences of exposure to such frequency of radiation.

I would like to encourage you to hear the testimony of many scientists and doctors who have very serious concerns over 5G radiation and over low frequency radiation devices. The most comprehensive list of information that I have found is at https://www.radiationhealthrisks.com/scientific-studies/. This is not my website but from the portion of it that I have sifted through it is very interesting and informative. Here you will find scientific studies, letters from doctors, video testimony from British Physicist Barrie Trower On 5G, Wikipedia,General RF Radiation Studies & Information, an excerpt from Dr. Oz and countless professional reports and studies. All of the material is well laid out and easy to sift through. Have I read all of it? No. However, I have spent time looking through much of it and I invite you to do so also. God bless you as you come to your own conclusion on the health risks of 5G.
