The inhabitants of Earth are being systematically marshalled into a compliant state. “Globalisation” is a euphemism for a long-planned totalitarian government on a planetary scale, affecting every detail of our lives. The means of accomplishing this sweeping goal are legion and concerted. What is taking place above our heads is just one of the numerous multifunctional “weapons” designed to facilitate complete control over the bodies, minds and souls of every human being on Earth.
That aerosol spraying is taking place globally cannot be credibly denied. And that no government is willing to take responsibility for explaining the phenomenon is in itself both disturbing and revealing. The aerosol trails cannot be dismissed as “normal aviation activity” or even as benign. Neither can the proliferation of man-made clouds, spread by means of electromagnetic stroking, be explained as consistent with historic meteorological patterns. Attempts to justify it all in terms of “mitigating global warming” are futile.
Nano-technolgy has produced new phenomena that combine aerial and terrestrial components in a deadly mix that is able to decimate entire populations.

No amount of placard waving or amassing of signatures will change the outcome. The issue lies far deeper than the merely political level.

By very definition, Chance cannot guide us on our quest. I have stood by the graveside of my young and very lovely wife and, later, a devoted, married son and voicelessly asked the quintessential question, “Why!” No “mathematically unified theory” can possibly respond. Sooner or later we must all stare this tiger in his burning eye. And intuitively we sense there is an answer somewhere well beyond the arbitrary descriptors of natural science.
