Objective:Health #15 - The Dangers of 5G & WiFi - With Scott Ogrin of Scottie's Tech.Info

O:H header
On this episode of Objective: Health, Elliot Overton and Doug DiPasquale are joined by Scott Ogrin of Scottie's Tech.Info for a discussion of the health implications of 5G wireless technology.

While wireless technology is progressing at a break-neck pace, with newer, better, faster innovations seemingly appearing every year, little attention is paid in the mainstream as to the possible negative repercussions.

It seems that technological progress is treated as of ultimate importance, with almost no attention paid to the health consequences. While many scientists (backed up by over 28,000 scientific studies) are sounding the alarm on the negative health effects of wireless communication, its infrastructure and devices; they are ignored by the regulatory bodies, industry and governments who continue to push things forward - beholden to the almighty dollar.

With promises of a 5G digital utopia just around the corner, is anyone listening to these very real concerns? Are we on the verge of a health apocalypse? Is 5G really that bad? Can anything be done on an individual level to mitigate the damage?

Join us as we talk to Scott Ogrin of Scottie's Tech.Info, who has done a deep dive on the research and helps us answer some of these questions and more.

MindMatters: Forgotten Ideals: Christianity and the Foundation of Western Civilization

stark christianity
© SOTT.net
Everyone is by now well aware, whether through personal experience or vicariously via the news, of the toxic legacy of Christian fundamentalism. Whether it's authoritarian dogma or the many scandals that have plagued the Catholic church, many so-called 'Christians' have given plenty of ammo to their accusers. Meanwhile individuals are largely left to fend for themselves in a society that was founded on Christianity but that is overwhelmingly nihilistic and materialistic, denying its own history in the process.

So today, on MindMatters, we discuss those aspects of the Christian belief system that may well be worth keeping and that have definitively shaped our world. Using sociologist of religion Rodney Stark's book Victory of Reason: How Christianity Led to Freedom, Capitalism, and Western Success, we discuss how Christian beliefs formed the moral matrix of the Western mind from the collapse of Rome onwards. As Stark argues, centuries of belief in free will and individual responsibility in an intelligently designed universe provided the primary impetus for the West to abolish slavery, institutionalize science, use capitalism to improve the lot of the common man, and even pursue the freedom to repudiate Christianity itself.

If he's correct, then losing sight of what these Christian beliefs once stood for (and no they're not just 'fairy tales and dogmatic superstitions') we lose sight of the higher motivation that led ordinary people to found these great enterprises - arguably the few positive aspects of Western society left. So, while today it is fashionable to deny that consciousness exists, and that beliefs can have any impact on reality, today we will be entertaining a different hypothesis - that what we believe matters, and that, in order to understand our history, we should understand the good inherent within Christianity and not just the bad.

Objective:Health #14 - Booze You Lose - The Myth of Moderation

O:H header alcohol
The relationship between alcohol and humans has been around for millennia. Yet it seems we're still not entirely sure about our love-hate relationship. The news headlines don't help - one day a 'study' is saying moderate alcohol consumption will prevent any number of illnesses, the next another 'study' says even a drop will eventually kill you. And what the heck does 'moderate consumption' mean? How much is too much and how do we know if we're over-indulging?

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we discuss all things boozy; looking past the exaggerated alcohol industry sponsored claims, getting down to the reality of drinking and some interesting methods of treatment for alcoholism.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, as she shares some tips on car rides for anxious doggies!

MindMatters: How Psychopaths Infect and Destroy Hierarchies of Competence

© SOTT.net
Can a government of, by and for psychopaths exist when the vast majority of individuals governed by such a group can be said to be relatively normal? Psychologist Andrew Lobaczewski believed that it could, outlined the factors that allow for its functioning, and coined a term for such a social structure: a pathocracy. On this week's show we will be delving deeper into the workings of pathological groupings - groupings that wield enormous amounts of power both overtly, and covertly, and over populations both large and small.

Hindsight is 20/20 when we look back at the acts of the 20th century's most notorious and dangerous political movements. But what did those systems anticipate about certain trends we see today? What, if anything, about the psychological health of an individual - or a whole society - can be strengthened to ensure that an oppressive and inhuman power structure doesn't take the reins completely? And if a bonafide pathocracy has assumed control of a population, how can the mere act of seeing it for what it is assist us in dealing with it?

Objective:Health #13 - The Anti-Human Agenda and the Children of the Quorn

O:H header
Does "extinction rebellion" ring a bell? It should because this "rebellion" is not against - but for - the extinction of humanity. Sound crazy? That's because it is.

We've just come through International Workers' Day, a holiday with leftist origins meant to celebrate the work of the working class, the unsung heroes who keep society functioning despite the constant threat of exploitation.

Yet it seems the left has moved away from protecting the little guy toward oppression from the top down under the globalist guise of 'saving the planet'. Environmentalism is now the most important issue, stopping climate change its new rallying cry, and the oppression of the lower classes in order to reach environmental goals - no matter how misguided - is the order of the day.

Whether its AOC or Bill Maher expressing anti-natalist sentements, French President Macron trying to impose austerity measures against the people's wishes to save the environment, George Monbiot telling everyone they need to become vegan and stop air travel (and overthrow capitalism) or a little autistic girl, child of the Quorn Greta Thunberg, telling everyone it's too late and leading a rabid movement into panicked actions, the Anti-Human agenda has worked its way into the mainstream.

Working towards a better life, "abundance for all", is now considered a bad thing - we need less abundance, less freedom, less wealth, more austerity and more restraint. As Monbiot cries out - "Bring on the recession!"

Join us for a lively discussion on the origins and character of this anti-human sentiment and how it shapes our current thinking and discourse.

MindMatters: What Is A Pathocracy?

© SOTT.net
Most people have a very common sense understanding of politics and various forms of government. Aristotle divided governments into three distinct forms: the monarchy, the aristocracy, and the polity (similar to modern notions of the republic), and revealed what they looked like when they were corrupted: the tyranny, the oligarchy (or in more modern terms, the technocracy), and democracy, respectively.

However, over the course of the early 20th century there appeared qualitatively different forms of government - forms which defy every sense of humanity and, when using the language offered by political philosophy and political science, cannot be adequately understood. We're speaking now, of course, of the Nazi Reich and the Soviet Union, although other forms, such as the Islamic State, would seem to fit these criteria as well.

For that reason today we begin an examination of Chapter 5 of Andrew Lobaczewski's seminal work, Political Ponerology, in which he sketches an outline for understanding a completely different form of government - a pathocracy. A pathocracy is the result of a society's complete moral, religious, and cultural collapse and its subsequent brutal indoctrination by agents that have very specific forms of pathological personality disorder. In this episode we discuss under what conditions they arise, the stages in their development, and what can be done to protect ourselves and our societies from their depredation.

Objective:Health #12 - The New Red Scare - Freaking Out About the Measles

O:H Measles Header
The measles are coming! The measles are coming!

Recent "scare media" reports would have us believe the measles is a deadly 'disease', and our governments are reacting to any surfacing of measles infections with quarantines worthy of an Ebola outbreak.

However, prior to the release of the vaccine, measles was thought of as being relatively benign - requiring only a few days of rest before being completely free of the infection, while getting the benefit of lifetime immunity from future infections.

So why is measles currently treated as a deadly modern plague while the last generation used it as a plot device for comedy on sit-coms? Is all the panic really justified?

Join us for a fascinating discussion of the measles, including the media and government's overreactions, mandatory vaccinations, as well as actual health BENEFITS of natural, wild measles infections and new research involving therapeutic uses of the measles virus in fighting cancer.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment, where she talks about reading cat behavioral cues.

MindMatters: The Great Peterson Vs. Žižek Debate: Ideological Slugfest or Meeting of the Minds?

© SOTT.net
What happens when two of the biggest and best known minds in the Western world decide to come together under one roof and publicly debate one of the most contentious and divisive of all political ideological issues - Capitalism Vs. Communism - and which one confers happiness to the greatest number of people? Well that's exactly what Jordan Peterson and Slavoj Žižek did recently much to the delight, disgust or confusion of many thousands. How would Žižek defend Communism? How would Peterson take it apart? Would there be rancor between these two intellectual giants - who both ostensibly fall squarely on either side of the fence? Or could they accommodate each others' points of view in a coherent and respectful manner? Join us this week on MindMatters as we share our reactions to their truly great discussion and point to its virtues, its values and its deficiencies - as well as how it excelled in defying many expectations.

MindMatters: Suffering To Be Happy: The Fool's Paradise of Feeling Good

mindmatters happiness
Today's Western cultural landscape seems to give us all the wrong messages of what happiness is, and how one should go about attaining it; we're programmed for unhappiness and seemingly trapped in ways of thinking and being that only make for more unhappiness! On this week's MindMatters we discuss John F. Schumaker's book In Search of Happiness - Understanding An Endangered State of Mind and delve into what happiness actually is, what it isn't - and some of the perennial values which nurture the meaning in our lives that deep happiness is quite often an outgrowth of.

On this week's show we'll also be looking at what some great minds had to say on bringing happiness about. Everyone wants to 'be happy,' but how does this feeling really come about and what, if anything, is the process to be engaged that could make it available to us? Can happiness even be experienced without knowing its opposite - and how willing are we to sacrifice short term gratification for the deeper more fulfilling life that nurtures true happiness. Join us this week as we put away the happy pills, the happy meals, the happy faces, and choose to suffer through a more objective understanding of a mostly elusive state of mind.
