Good article, Patrice. It is amazing how the forces are aligning on massive paradigmatic change. Sadly, they produce change but do not guarantee success for either human or planetary wellbeing. We will need to fight for it and the forces of evil have been allowed to rule for some time now.

I noted your reference to the new crop of conspiracy theories attacking 5G. All of us in the tech world are very aware of potential problems with radiation of various types. There is no scientific basis for the theories from the usual suspects attempting to destroy confidence in science to further their own agenda.

Once this stuff gets started people make no distinction between science and the failure of our existing governmental structures. The later is filled with corruption, ignorance, and general stupidity. The international standards bodies are independent and doing what they can.

Here’s a link if you haven't seen it. I avoid US media as sources for anything but US politics. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/mar/12/5g-safe-radiation-watchdog-health

These things really bother me because: 1) I’ve worked in IT, TV, and DataCom for forty years and; 2) I was trained in Intelligence operations during the Cold War when the USSR’s KGB was developing this type of attack on target societies.

We must maintain trust in the scientific process but not a mindless faith. Without that, we are lost.
