#4 The Manipulation Of Science
As get deeper into the government secrets, one has to stop and pause a moment. Major corporations have been in on and right behind some of it’s shadiest plots. Science used to be a pure, logical, and truthful pursuit. Now the race isn’t on for the next great discovery, it’s being manipulated and abused to fill corporate and government needs.
It lies on the scientists themselves, a big corporation leans on you and what are they supposed to do? Who will help them? They are paid of, threatened, misled, framed and black bagged. Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and long time Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal, had this grim realization to share,
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”
The fields of science are controlled, so that the general public doesn’t accidentally lay hand on something valuable. Something that could shake the government’s crippling hold on us. Even if we can’t get an amazing gadget, the proof of the government’s influence on our progress would likely have a rejuvenating effect on the people. The ‘training wheels’ will finally be off and we can fly off.
#5 Invention Secrecy
The Freedom of Information Act was the key to realizing, how far the government has gone to keep us in dark. Not necessarily the dark rather more than a couple of steps behind where we should be. The patent office has been implementing a way to slow down the approval of applications.
The program is called the Sensitive Application Warning System. It slows down the estimated time of approval from a year or two, to decades. One example that sums it all up nicely is the case if Dr. Gerald F. Ross. He came up with a way to defeat the jamming electromagnetic transmissions at certain frequencies. His patent was granted some 37 years later in 2014.
In 1951, the ‘Invention Secrecy Act’ was passed in 1951. This lets the government place secrecy orders on any invention they want. They don’t even have to explain their actions to anyone. The end of the 2014 fiscal year saw over 5,000 inventions get black bagged under this dubious act. This is the most secrecy orders in effect since 1994.
#6 The Trans-Pacific Partnership(TPP)
It scary that this isn’t in the news. The TPP is the largest trade agreement since the creation of the World Trade Organization. The US has been talking to twelve Pacific nations over the finalization of a free trade agreement. Brunei, Chile, New Zealand, Singapore, Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Peru, Vietnam and the US have been working on this deal since 2005.
IT isn’t a secret per se but it has avoided the main stream media the world round. Which is why this is so scary. The TPP’s mission statement can elaborate on how good this is going to be great for everyone involved, but I won’t believe it until I’ve seen it. The negotiations were complete on November 2015.
Yet I haven’t heard anything on what this means for the America’s economy and international position in the free market. Slowly, bit by bit the American people are being forced out of the decisions, information and rewards we work hard for. See the video below for an overview of the TPP.
