SPACE JUNK FOLLOW-UP
(Just in case any of you like science or technology or . . . freedom.)
Remember the picture in the last post showing what all the space junk in orbit around our earth would look like?
That “space junk” is doing things, we know.
Well, there’s a follow-up in the news today, kind of an “addition.” The headlines for the article from Wired . com reads: “88 New Satellites Will Watch Earth All The Time All The Places.”
The 88 new satellites from the company called “Planet” (and they’re buying more) will be “imaging” the earth and everything on it. The article concludes by saying that every day the entire land mass of the planet will be photographed and databased. Every day. The whole planet.
And there is a long list of people, entities, corporations, and government offices who are buying this information.
Word for the day: Luddite – Not liking all this technology.
I’m not a Luddite, probably, but I just can’t think of one technological “advance” that has a net positive effect on human society. (That is, add up both columns, positive and negative, compare, and the negative columns will be greater, slightly greater or massively greater.)
Don’t tell me the medical industry is a positive. We should have done it all differently, focusing on the health of the person , not on the disease. Health officials take care of the disease, not the person. How much do you think medical “advances” are worth?
How much of a price would you put on these cute little twins?
Healthy little twins. Just beginning to smile and get social. How much do you think they were worth to their parents and family?
The world was recently relieved of the presence of these little ones.
The medical industry declared that they were Sexually Active.
They were vaccinated to death. Routine vaccines. Routinely too many at once. Including the vaccine for a disease you catch after doing the “marital act” with multiple partners – people like lotharios, prostitutes, and nymphomaniacs.
The medical industry thought these infants were a pair of immoral sluts.
Net positive effect? Not if they were my babies. America has the highest infant mortality rate of the industrialized (technological) world.
