Read his book :

You print money it causes inflation. You take actions of trying to control (money, the economy, whatever) aspects of the economy in a complex interconnected global economic system it can backfire (sanctions on Russia, the recent example of Turkey trying to limit interest but they themselves being in a system where all money is valued against the dollar (what happens, or happened was then that they get massive inflation, not to mention their other economic difficulties after doing very well for a time) - the dollar, which is manipulated and created by one central authority but they themselves don't have all the power in the world - they don't own all the resources of the world and the means of production and telling other countries how to organize their means of production and who owns what and gets to control and therefore also profit off the resources or product(s) and also how profits are distributed and also where they go, what they're used for...).

Read! : - (am learning and gaining knowledge) - Much respect : (GREAT)

right now there's a prospect of endless wars then the

33:59 status of democracy seems to be rather

34:04 dismal and what about free speech

34:11 and what about the first amendment now there are two again

34:16 ah we we learn about the bill of rights we learn about the first amendment congress shall make no law bridging the

34:22 freedom of speech and other things and

34:28 it doesn't say congress may make no law abridging freedom of speech except in time of war it doesn't

34:34 say that it's absolute congress shall make no law bridging the freedom of speech

34:39 but what does the supreme court decide well when it's wartime

34:45 uh you don't have free speech like you have in peace time i mean the man who said this was the man who is the great

34:52 liberal jurist in the history of the supreme court oliver wendell holmes i mean how can you get more

34:57 distinguished than that man with three names

35:10 and so you know a man was sent to jail unanimous decision of the court

35:16 written by holmes sent to jail for distributing

35:22 leaflets on the streets of new york against the draft because it's wartime

35:29 and we cannot have that kind of freedom in war time

35:35 well it's interesting if you can't have freedom of speech in wartime when can you have it

35:42 and and when is it most important to have it and when is it most important to have free discussion on foreign policy so

35:48 exactly at those times exactly in those situations when you need discussion on foreign policy most

35:55 exactly in those situations we need freedom of speech most at best moments at those moments you don't have it

36:03 that doesn't speak well for how much democracy we have whatever is written in the constitution and

36:08 whatever is told to us in junior high school well

36:18 one of the requirements i suppose of a democracy is a well-informed public and

36:26 and one of the media for a well-informed public is the media the the

36:33 newspapers and television radio and they're supposed to

36:38 help us they're supposed to that's their job they're professionals

36:44 they have their time they're supposed to investigate what the government does they're supposed to be like i have stone

36:50 but they're not you say they're supposed to uh inform

36:56 the public what's going on and be critical of what is happening and be a kind of intermediary between the

37:03 government and the people but what do we find instead we find the media the mass media the big media

37:09 the corporate owned media of this country are going along with war

37:15 i mean all your president has to declare a war and immediately the media come on board and you saw this right at the

37:21 beginning beginning of the iraq war and sort of flags go up on the stands of the

37:26 television commentators and you saw you heard dan rather saying talking about

37:33 the decisions made by the government of god boy using the word we immediately associating himself

37:39 uh i'm just a small example of the obsequiousness of the press

37:45 uh in in situations of war

37:50 and and near war and impending war and you remember that a month before

37:58 uh we went to war uh in iraq in february of of

38:03 2003 colin powell made that famous speech before the u.n

38:08 which he laid out this long long list of weapons

38:13 of mass destruction probably uh there's no speech ever made

38:20 at the u.n that contained more falsehoods in one speech than that one

38:26 uh the press asked questions did they ask uh hey where's your

38:33 evidence did they remember that two years before colin powell being nominated for his post had said

38:39 iran iraq is a iraq is a beaten country iran is a weak and

38:46 helpless country that was two years before can they remember that since then

38:51 there'd been hundreds and hundreds of inspections of iraq by an international team that had found no evidence of

38:56 weapons of mass destruction nicole and paul made a speech the big newspapers

39:03 climbed on board immediately i mean the new york times fell all over itself in admiration of the speech

39:10 i mean and by now you know it is accustomed to that acrobatic feat

39:15 and the washington post uh said

39:21 it is hard to imagine how anyone could doubt that iraq possesses weapons of

39:27 mass destruction well

39:34 can't depend on the press and the public is on its own that's an

39:42 important thing to know that we are on our own that the checks and balances won't help us and

39:49 the press won't help us we are on our own as citizens if democracy is to have any life it will have it because of us

39:57 and not because of the organs of government not even because of the constitution because the constitution

40:03 can be set aside very easily and is being set aside so it's up to us but we have problems

40:11 uh in knowing what is going on for

40:16 a number of reasons one of them is a loss of history

40:22 if we are not given a a really good historical education we're

40:27 not really in a position to understand what is going on

40:34 if we don't know history as if we were born yesterday

40:40 and if you're born yesterday anybody in authority can get up before the microphone and say we must go to war for

40:45 this reason or that reason or another reason and you have no basis for uh challenging that uh

40:53 and if you know some history it's a different matter and when i say no history i don't mean the history we

40:59 get yes again in junior high school and in high school and in college and so and in the university i'm afraid i mean i i

41:06 went all through you know the history program right up to the phd and i must say that there was a

41:12 lot that was missing in that history ah so i don't know i don't mean the history

41:17 that that glows with admiration for our various presidents doom andrew jackson

41:25 is a hero the andrew jackson the racist the indian killer the slave owner to

41:31 whom theodore roosevelt is a hero theodore roosevelt the lover of war the

41:36 defender of massacres in the philippines you know the the

41:41 those laudatory uh histories of military

41:47 heroes i don't mean that kind of history i mean history which is uh critical which is

41:53 uh which is independent of previous histories of the of the tradition of independent

42:01 of of orthodox history no if you but if you knew some history uh which you

42:07 learned by yourself or what you got from the library because the library is always a much much better source

42:14 of information than what you can get in the press and very often what you can get in the institutions of learning uh

42:23 and uh and if you get if you have that kind of history then uh when the president gets up to

42:29 tell you go to war you would be skeptical because you would know how often presidents have lied to the public in

42:35 order to get them into war you would know about how president polk lied to the american nation about the

42:41 mexican war in 1846 and oh well you know there's been a clash on the border and

42:46 american blood has been shed on american soil wow you know it's like pearl harbor it's

42:52 like the gulf of tonkin i'm jumping a little ahead with my but you know i don't have that much time

42:59 you see and uh

43:04 and uh and

43:09 lies told for every war lies told about the spanish miracle you know oh we're going into

43:14 cuba to liberate the cubans from spanish rule uh well

43:21 sort of a half truth we deliberate the cubans from spanish rule but not from our rule

43:26 spain was out we were in spain was out and united fruit was in spain was out and the american banks and american

43:32 corporations were in and now cuba was ours until that terrible moment

43:38 in 1959 well you know when castro

43:43 ruined everything and uh and uh

43:49 and because we're against dictators we're against you know we want democracy

43:54 and so we supported all of his dictatorial predecessors until until he came along but cuba was

44:00 ours and lies told about the philippine war and lies told about world war one and

44:07 lies and go on and on and on and you know about the more recent lies the lies about the gulf of tonkin

44:13 and and about panama and grenada there was always there was a reason for going

44:19 to war and turned out of course those were not the real reasons there were motives there were other murders that

44:25 were not told to us we're not told that that the reason we get into the mexican war is not because

44:31 of this clash on the border but because president polk wanted california

44:36 i mean who can blame him but he wanted california

44:41 he wanted that whole great beautiful area of the southwest which is now ours which is now trying to keep the mexicans

44:48 out of trying to keep them out of the land we stole from them this is really

44:53 you know yes of course

44:58 lies yeah yeah there were murders just we're told

45:04 one thing and then there were real reasons for going into these places and we told

45:09 we're going into the philippines to you know bring civilization and christianity to the filipinos

45:16 yeah we brought death and destruction to them and why was it to bring democracy was it to

45:22 bring civilization christianity to the filipinos no because the philippines were a

45:28 wonderful entry to the mineral wealth of all of asia

45:34 i mean senator albert beveridge of indiana sort of held up a nugget gold nugget in the

45:40 senate and said this is what they have in the philippines they're a little more

45:46 honest then you don't see senators getting up now saying and here is a gallon of oil

45:53 uh

46:00 so yes a little knowledge of history uh

46:05 would make people more skeptical uh when the government urges us

46:11 to go to war and


...


i think one of the reasons we're we're not ready to be

46:45 skeptical is that we i think we grow up in this country with the

46:50 idea that the government is looking out for our interests

46:56 in other words if something goes wrong it's because the government has made a mistake they really care about us

47:02 they really want to do the right thing by us it's just that they make mistakes we cannot get it through our heads that

47:09 the government may not be making mistakes it may have different interests than us

47:14 that is all that language that we get in the culture about

47:20 the national defense and the national interest and national security all those

47:26 abstractions which bind us all together those first words in the preamble to the constitution we the people of the united

47:32 states just and so we all grow up with the idea yeah we're all you know one big happy family

47:40 and that all of our interests are the same uh but

47:46 some history would just abuse us of that i mean really but

47:52 you mean george bush's interests are the same as the interests of the young person he sends to iraq

47:58 you mean exxon's interests are the same as the interests of working people in this country who may work for exxon exa

48:08 well some yes some history would show us that from the beginning this country was not united by a common

48:15 interest long before the american revolution

48:20 there clashes all through the american colonies between landlords and tenants between slaves and slave owners

48:28 there were riots of the poor in boston and philadelphia and new york and then

48:34 when the revolution came although we we learned very often in uh you know in our history courses that well you know there

48:40 were the united uh colonists uh uh against

48:46 england and british oppression they were not united at all the working guys went into the

48:53 revolution very often because they were promised land not because they they had any ocean notion that they had

49:00 common interests with the well with the founding fathers

49:05 uh and uh and in fact there were mutinies in the and this i never learned in school uh

49:13 there were mutinies in the revolutionary army against washington and the officers

49:18 because of the way the privates were treated their lack of food their lack of clothes

49:23 their lack of pay and the way the officers was treated with splendid clothes and plenty of money uh mutinies

49:30 of thousands of soldiers in washington's army and then when the revolutionary war ended that conflict continued

49:37 rebellions of farmers in massachusetts and other places probably you know about shae's rebellion many people know about

49:44 it only because it appears on multiple choice tests but shea's rebellion

49:50 yeah was a huge uprising of thousands and thousands of farmers in

49:55 western massachusetts and emulator other states poor many of them veterans

50:01 of the revolutionary war facing the same problem that veterans of any war face and that is when they come home and they

50:08 find that the promises made to them as veterans are not being kept and they find that the country which

50:13 they thought they had fought for is not exactly the same uh

50:19 there was a an uh aftershave's rebellion there was a letter written by to washington by uh one of his men

50:26 who was general with washington henry knox and uh

50:32 and after shae's rebellion which put a kind of fear into the founding fathers remember shane's rebellion was 1786 the

50:39 constitution was 1787. and after shae's rebellion knox wrote to

50:44 washington and he said well i'm paraphrasing that

50:50 they wrote more elegantly in those days our founding fathers whatever you can

50:56 say about them they could write they could speak

51:01 you know so anything critical that i may say of them should be you know levened by that

51:08 thought and but knox said to washington after shae's

51:14 rebellion said these people out in western massachusetts

51:20 they think that because they fought in the revolution they deserve an equal share of the

51:25 wealth of this country no the constitution was not drawn up for

51:31 the benefit of all and the common interests of all the constitution was drawn up by men of means by slave

51:37 holders and merchants and and it was drawn up basically to

51:43 present a strong central government would you be able to put down rebellions

51:50 which would be able to put down slave rebellions would be able to protect the settlers as they moved out west to get

51:56 rid of the indians who thought it was their land

52:01 conflict from the beginning of different interests from the beginning from the

52:07 revolution on from before the revolution after the revolution down to the present day bringing traces in the legislation

52:13 congress passes all through history class legislation

52:19 legislation that serves the interests of the privilege all through the subsidies to the railroads the subsidies for the

52:25 corporations there were moments when there was a break in that

52:31 there were moments when when congress did pass legislation for the poor those were moments when people rebelled

52:37 like the 30s on the great strikes of the 30s or the 60s when the great movements of the 60s and then we got some reforms

52:44 but in general the history of legislation in this country is a history

52:51 that is class legislation so i always get a kick out of it when

52:56 election time one candidate says of the other accusingly

53:02 he's appealing to class antagonism

53:07 well it's the right thing to do

53:14 so

53:20 there's another problem we have in uh

53:26 being skeptical another sort of psychological ideological

53:32 obstacle to being uh properly critical to seeing

53:38 our nation and its policies very clearly and that is what well that's what social

53:43 scientists call uh american exceptionalism

53:49 the myth of american exceptionalism the idea that we're the best we're the greatest uh

53:54 we're number one well there are ways in which we are number one and there are ways in which we are great and then a lot of

54:02 really good things you can say about this country but to blanketly declare us the best and the

54:08 most virtuous and that's going too far and that's where history comes in handy

54:14 history makes us honest it's not a matter of putting ourselves down it's a matter of being honest about ourselves

54:20 and our past and you can't say as many people that well it's true you know i mean this is a great country sure we've

54:26 had a little problems like slavery you know but basically no

54:33 well no it's not it's not as simple as that

54:38 and our our history is is a history of a country of great wealth enough wealth

54:45 to create a middle class

54:50 but a country which has always had an underclass a large underclass where the wealth has always been unequally and

54:57 unfairly distributed a country of slavery and then of uh

55:03 100 years of racial segregation after slavery remember it's very recent only

55:08 very recent that racial segregation in this country was outlawed

55:14 so uh and then of course our activities abroad they say well in the united states we're

55:19 the good guys of the world oh well we've made a few mistakes here and there no we haven't been the good guys of the

55:26 world you know but that's the well you grow up with we're the boy scouts

55:31 of the world we help nations across the street

55:43 we haven't and sometimes we've helped other countries most often we have not

55:50 most often our aims have been imperial

55:55 and in the record of the united states there's a record of expansion of continual expansion

56:00 first across the continent destroying native american tribes

56:05 annihilating them pushing them farther and farther into smaller parts of the country and then moving into the caribbean and

56:12 then moving into the pacific

56:17 uh and across into latin america and and

56:23 recently of course all over the world and it and it hasn't hasn't been

56:29 a picture of of benign imperialism as some people like to think

56:34 of it well we're imperial but they've even used the term imperialism

56:40 light which may be okay for a beer but not for

56:45 imperialism

56:52 and this idea

57:03 you all have a right to take out your bottles of water i feel that i'm sort of taking advantage

57:08 of the situation

57:14 uh you know this uh

57:23 this idea of us being the greatest and so on very often it's accompanied by the idea that

57:30 god has given us special dispensation and uh

57:35 and this this goes way back goes back to you know the first governor of massachusetts goes back to the middle of

57:41 the 19th century and the idea of manifest destiny and that providence that's the word they use

57:47 providence has ordained that we move across the continent

57:52 and as if god believed in ethnic cleansing and uh

57:58 you know and uh wilson invoked god it's interesting all this talk about this sort of

58:05 very pompous talk about if you know the separation of church and state it's never been a separation of

58:12 church and state every president has invoked god to support what he has done wilson did it

58:18 all the time and and clinton did it and of course bush

58:24 has carried it too uh well

58:31 the i mean before bush of course mckinley

58:37 had said god told him to take the philippines

58:43 and he did so bush uh

58:48 uh and bush this was reported in high rates newspaper in israel

58:54 that uh that palestinian leader reported this that he had spoken to bush

59:00 and bush told him quote god told me to strike al-qaeda

59:06 and i struck them and then he instructed me to strike at saddam which i did

59:12 well uh it's a little suspect actually that that's you know it's not a second-hand

59:18 source and and and the grammar isn't quite right

59:26 uh there's a more likely source

59:31 and this is a an official of the southern baptist convention who says that during

59:37 during bush's first campaign bush said to him i believe god wants me to be president

59:45 but if that doesn't happen that's okay i thought that was generous

59:57 but so i think we

1:00:04 we need to be honest about the historical record i um

1:00:12 the people i i think that portion of our population

1:00:18 uh which is least susceptible to

1:00:24 the claim that you know we are the greatest and so on and we have a liberty and

1:00:29 democracy and so on


...


1:07:10 people died in vietnam because people were made hysterical about

1:07:16 communism and this country has spent trillions of

1:07:21 dollars on war for the purpose of defending ourselves

1:07:29 against a menace that was enormously exaggerated

1:07:35 and that fear communism now is fear of terrorism

1:07:43 and terrorism is used as a way to make people stop thinking and uh and as a justification for

1:07:50 everything that is done to us as justification for stealing the wealth of this country and justification to taking

1:07:56 away our liberties and our justification of going to war again and again

1:08:01 and not giving people a chance to think

1:08:07 about war and the war on terrorism and how can you make war on terrorism

1:08:14 when terrorism itself is war and war is terrorism

1:08:22 war is the greatest terrorism are the terrorism of small bands of people who blow up and

1:08:28 buildings and who are suicide bombers i mean that's terror bad and that is terrorism but

1:08:35 that's very small compared to the terrorism of governance governments have enormous capacity to

1:08:41 kill millions of people and they do but that is

1:08:46 concealed from us by making us focus focus on these bands of people who are

1:08:51 terrorists we need to think about the way terrorism

1:08:57 is used we need

1:09:03 and we need to think about war itself i don't mean just this war i don't mean

1:09:09 just the war in iraq because we will the war in iraq will come to an end i

1:09:15 don't know when but it will come to an end at some point who knows at what cost but

1:09:20 it will come to an end it has to because we we don't belong in iraq this

1:09:26 our presence there is already crumbling and crumbling and we are not going to

1:09:31 stay in iraq and so the war in iraq may be over at some point but then what about the next

1:09:37 war and the next war and the next war are we going to have anti-war movement

1:09:42 after anti-war movement after anti-war movement it seems to even we must and i know this

1:09:48 is a big big job you must think about the abolition of

1:09:54 war itself war war is the enemy



I had never heard of Howard Zinn before, this video led me to that one I believe (Youtube algorithm's) and...al hamdu lillah rabbil alameen - :


there's a reservoir of possible terrorists among all those people in the world who have suffered as a result of

29:02 U.S foreign policy now I don't know if you think I'm exaggerating when I say there are

29:08 millions of people in the world who have suffered as a result of U.S foreign

29:13 policy uh but yes there are and Bush at a recent press conference

29:22 said something like

29:28 I don't understand why these people hate us no I don't I

29:35 you know said we are good that's what he said we are good you know

29:42 look at me good you know

29:49 well sometimes the United States is good yes

29:54 there are a lot of good things about the United States and yes there are times when the United States is good and then there are times

30:03 unfortunately many times too many times when the United States has been bad

30:09 evil really and has carried out policies that have resulted in the deaths of yes millions

30:16 of people this is democracy Now democracynow.org The War and Peace report I'm Amy Goodman

30:22 as we continue with our Centennial that's right the legendary historian

30:27 Howard Zinn would have been 100 years old today in 2006 we featured a speech

30:34 then delivered in Madison Wisconsin as he received the Haven Center's award for Lifetime contribution to critical

30:39 scholarship his lecture was titled the uses of history and the war on terrorism

30:45 I was talking to my barber the other day because we always discuss World politics

30:51 and he's totally politically unpredictable as most Barbers are uh

31:01 he said he said Howard he said um you know you and I disagree on many

31:07 things but on one thing we agree War solves nothing

31:15 and I thought yeah it's not hard for people to grasp that

31:21 and there again history is useful we've had a history of war after war after war



the war in which I'd volunteered the war in which I was an enthusiastic Bombardier I came out of that war with

32:07 certain I ideas which just developed gradually at the end of the war ideas about war

32:15 one that war corrupts everybody who engages in it War poisons everybody who

32:22 engages in it uh and you start off as the good guys as we did in World War II

32:28 they're the bad guys they're the fascists what could be worse uh

32:34 so they're the bad guys we're the good guys and as the war goes on the good guys

32:40 begin behaving like the bad guys you can trace this back to the the Peloponnesian

32:46 War you can trace it back to the good guy the Athenians and the bad guys the Spartans and after a while the Athenians

32:53 become ruthless and cruel like the Spartans and we did that in World War II

32:58 we after Hitler committed his atrocities we committed our atrocities

33:04 now our killing of 600 000 civilians in Japan are killing a probably an equal

33:10 number of civilians in German it is they warned Hitler they weren't told you they weren't no they were just ordinary

33:17 people like like we are ordinary people with living in a country that is a

33:24 marauding country and they were living in countries that were marauding countries and they were they were caught

33:29 up in in whatever it was and afraid to speak up uh

33:36 and I don't know I came to conclusion yes War poisons everybody and War uh

33:43 this is an important thing to keep in mind that

33:48 when you go to war against a tyrant and this is one of the claims oh we're going to get rid of Saddam Hussein which was

33:53 cost nonsense they didn't that our government care that Saddam Hussein who

33:59 tyrannized his own people we helped him tyrannize his people we helped him gas the Kurds we helped him accumulate

34:07 weapons of mass destruction really uh and

34:13 but when you go to war against a tyrant the people you kill in the war are the

34:19 victims of the tyrant people we killed in Germany were the victims of Hitler the people we killed

34:25 in Japan were the victims of the Japan and Imperial Army you know

34:30 and uh and the people who die in Wars

34:37 are more and more and more people who are not in the military you may know

34:42 this about the different ratio of Civilian to military deaths in war how would World War One

34:49 ten military dead for one civilian dead in World War II it was 50 50 half

34:56 military half civilian and Vietnam was 70 percent civilian and 30 percent military and in the war since then it's

35:04 80 and 85 percent civilian uh

35:09 I became friends a few years ago with an Italian War surgeon named Gino Estrada wrote a spent he spent 10 years 15 years

35:19 doing surgery on war victims all over the world and he wrote a book about it

35:26 green parrots Diary of a war surgeon he said in all the patients that he

35:31 operated on in Iraq and Afghanistan and everywhere 85 percent of them were

35:37 civilians one-third of them children if you understand and if people understand and if you spread the word of

35:44 this understanding that whatever is told to you about war and how and how we must go to war and

35:50 whatever the threat is or whatever the goal is democracy or Liberty it will

35:56 always be a war against children they're the ones who will die in large numbers

36:02 the war well Einstein said this after World War

36:08 one he said war cannot be humanized it can only be abolished War has to be abolished you know and uh

36:15 it's uh I know I know I know it's a long shot I

36:23 understand that but you have to when something's a long shot but it has to be done you have to

36:29 start doing it just as the ending of slavery in this country in the 1830s was a really long shot but people stuck at

36:36 it it took 30 years but slavery was done away with and uh we can see this again

36:42 and again so we have a we have a job to do we have

36:49 lots of things to do one of the things we can learn from history is that history is not only a history of

36:56 things inflicted on us by the powers that be history is also a history of

37:01 resistance as a history of of people who endure tyranny for decades but who

37:10 ultimately rise up and overthrow the dictator we've seen this in country after country surprise after surprise

37:17 rulers who seem to have total control they suddenly wake up one day and there are a million people in the streets and

37:25 they pack up and leave they this has happened in the Philippines and and uh

37:33 in Yemen in all over in uh

37:39 Nepal million people in the streets and then the ruler has to get out of the way uh

37:48 so uh this is what we're aiming for uh in this

37:53 country everything we do is important every little thing we do every every picket line we walk on every letter we

38:01 write Every Act of Civil Disobedience we engage in uh any recruiter that we talk

38:07 to any parent that we talk to any GI that we talk to any young person that we

38:13 talk to anything we do in class outside of class everything we do in a direction

38:18 of a different world is important even though at the moment they seem futile

38:24 because that's how change comes about change comes about when millions of people do little things which at certain

38:32 points in history come together and then something good and something important happens thank you

the prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam

0:21 said

0:24 there shall come a time upon my ummah on

0:27 the people who follow me when their

0:30 prayers are not prayed correctly

0:35 and when high buildings spread in every

0:38 place

0:41 when people swear in the name of allah a

0:43 lot about everything without fulfilling

0:46 their oath people curse each other a lot

0:49 bribery and adultery prevails

0:52 people neglect the hereafter

0:55 in order to buy the luxuries of this

0:57 world

0:58 in exchange for the hereafter so people

1:00 become materialistic

1:09 if you see this happening in your time

1:12 then seek refuge seek refuge

1:14 find a solution to get away from all of

1:16 this

1:17 it's not an easy solution

1:19 but you need to stay away from all this

1:21 in one other hadith a man said ya

1:23 rasulallah

1:25 what is seeking refuge how do i seek

1:28 protection what do you mean by that

1:31 and

1:32 gave an expression like this he said by

1:34 adhering to your house and keeping your

1:36 mouth shut and hold your tongue

1:39 and hand from doing unlawful until death

1:41 comes to you

1:42 there's gonna come a time even worse

1:44 than this one brothers and sisters

1:46 where

1:47 a person becomes so confused about what

1:49 is happening in the world

1:52 so deluded by everything that they see

1:54 and hear

1:55 that they're not going to know what to

1:57 do and where to go and who to stand with

2:00 except to stay away from things even if

2:03 they mean sitting at home

2:04 abstaining from all of this because

2:06 there's not much they can do anymore

2:09 they want to do good but where do they

2:10 go

2:11 they want to avoid the bad but it's all

2:12 the way all around

2:15 i heard a lot of young people say to me

2:16 now

2:18 why does islam say everything is haram

2:20 haram

2:21 this is not true islam does not say

2:22 everything is haram

2:24 but when there's so much haram around us

2:26 in corruption islam looks like it's

2:28 forbidden everything

This (again, again): Surah Al Asr ᴴᴰ ┇ Amazing Reminder ┇ by Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan ┇ The Daily Reminder ┇

Real science is...:


5G: The Trouble With the New Phone Network Sabine Hossenfelder 248K views


Five G is controversial because it’s the first to use millimeter waves and the health

4:01 effects have not been well studied.

4:03 I already talked about this in a previous video but let me be clear that I have no reason

4:08 to think that five G will have any adverse health effects.

4:12 To the extent that research exists, it shows that millimeter waves will at high power warm

4:17 up tissue, and that’s pretty much it.

4:20 However, the studies that have been done leave me wanting.

4:24 Last year, one of the Nature journals published a review on 5G mobile networks and health.

4:29 They looked at 107 experimental studies that investigated various effects on living tissue

4:35 including genotoxicity, cell proliferation, gene expression, cell signaling, etc.

4:40 The brief summary is that none of those studies found anything of concern.

4:45 However, this isn’t the interesting part of the paper.

4:48 The interesting part is that the authors rated the quality of these 107 studies.

4:54 Only two were rated well-designed, and only one got the maximum quality score.

4:59 One.

5:00 Out of 107.

5:02 The others all had significant shortcomings, anything from lack of blinding to small sample

5:07 sizes to poor control of environmental parameters.

5:11 In fact, the authors’ conclusion is not that five G is safe.

5:16 Their conclusion is: “Given the low-quality methods of the majority of the experimental

5:20 studies we infer that a systematic review of different bioeffects is not possible at

5:25 present.”

5:26 Now, as I said, there’s no reason to think that five G is harmful.

5:31 Indeed, there’s good reason to think it’s not, because millimeter waves have been used

5:35 in medicine for a long time and for all we know they only enter the upper skin layers.

5:40 But I am a little surprised that there aren’t any good studies on the health effects of

5:46 long-term radiation exposure in this frequency range.

5:49 The 5G network has been in the planning since 2008.

5:53 That’s 14 years.

5:56 That’s longer than it takes NASA to fly to Pluto!

6:00 So scientists say there’s nothing to worry.

6:03 Well, they also said that smoking is good for you and alcohol doesn’t cross the placenta

6:08 and that copies of you live in parallel universes.

6:11 As a scientist myself, I can confirm that scientists say a lot when the day is long,

6:17 and I would much rather see data than just take word for it.





Another good looking video (haven't watched it yet, just saw it now as I'm writing this blog post and is a good tie-in to near the end of the next video):

I like these comments:

Once again. I love this detailed and comprehensive list of facts.


In principle, I think thorium reactors are at least a bridging technology either to renewables or on the way to nuclear fusion as a more advanced bridging technology.
