Mike Adams Recognizes the Internet Reformation, Too
11 shocking things you now realize to be true (but you never would have believed just three years ago) ... We are living through a time of great awakening. The people of our world are beginning to open their eyes and realize the stunning depth of the scams and collusion taking place all around them. These scams that steal their wealth, poison them with chemicals, enslave them with financial trickery and control their minds with propaganda. These scams are the very fabric of modern government, the mainstream media, universities and so-called "science" institutions. – Mike Adams, Natural News
Dominant Social Theme: Everything is OK and just the way it is supposed to be. Things could not be better.
Free-Market Analysis: Good-health warrior Mike Adams recently posted an article on how much people are learning about the societies they live in. (See excerpt above.) This story, unconsciously or not, reinforces a meme that DB has been presenting for nearly a decade now.
What is it? That an Internet Reformation is challenging the hold of the power elite on society and leading to a good deal of increased freedom. This freedom first manifests itself as thinking that goes beyond the mainstream. Later on, it shall manifest itself in sociopolitical and economic ways. In fact, that process is underway currently.
Mike Adams is not the only incisive observer of the modern theme to point out how Internet information is changing the world. Recently, Saman Mohammadi of The Excavator wrote about The Second Western Enlightenment. We noticed and responded here: Is It a New Enlightenment Yet?
We are encouraged to see a viewpoint taking shape in the alternative 'Net community that supports the idea that the 'Net is changing the context of our times. The Gutenberg Press led to the Renaissance, the Reformation and ultimately, the further populating of the New World and an era of freedom that led to great advances in numerous arenas of human endeavor.
Adams is not just content to assert that the Internet is changing the modern knowledge base. He actually lists the ways that people are growing more aware. "Here are 11 of those scams that you probably never would have believed just 2-3 years ago," he writes. They are as follows:
#1 – Most of the honey you buy in the grocery store contains no actual honey whatsoever
#2 – The fluoride that's dripped into municipal water supplies is actually a highly toxic industrial chemical byproduct
#3 – Flu vaccines often contain live flu viruses and actually cause the flu as a way to worsen the flu season and scare more people into buying
#4 – Ron Paul is deliberately stripped out of mainstream news reports, online polls and debate coverage in order to "game the system" against him.
#5 – The United States government openly traffics illegal guns into Mexico as a way to cause gun violence in the
#6 – Prestigious U.S. hospitals are widely engaged in black market organ trafficking and organ transplants
#7 – The child sex slave industry is huge, highly profitable, and found everywhere across America (and the world)
#8 – Commercial chickens are routinely fed arsenic, and commercial cows are routinely fed chicken poop
#9 – "Natural" foods and cereals are routinely made with genetically modified ingredients
#10 – The global banking industry is a criminal racket that steals wealth from working
#11 – The U.S. government routinely conspires with pharmaceutical giants to conduct criminal, inhumane medical experiments on innocent people
You can read the details about each of these points in his article. We are interested in his larger point, which is that the Internet itself is providing a new way of thinking about our world and how it is controlled by a power elite that is seeking even more control and wealth via one-world government. Adams also writes:
Discard your blinders. Maybe it's time we opened our eyes to reality and stopped lying to ourselves about the depth of corruption and evil in our world. And why would we do that? Because that's the first step to positive revolution where we work together to create a better world... a world where such criminality and suffering is ancient history.
We believe that the Daily Bell's Internet Reformation paradigm has significance for the modern age. Mike Adams and others are obviously noting the impact that the Internet is having as well. It is a process, after all, rather than an episode.
In the 20th century, the power elite seems to have created history at will. But in the 21st century, we've been able to see just how much of the narrative was driven by the elites' goal of creating one-world government. We call what's going on directed history.
Conclusion: It's quite shocking how much directed history took place in the 20th century when the power elite fully controlled the means of communication. Today, in the 21st century, that control has crumbled, and we think it may take the elites decades to counteract the damage that has been done.

why would the internet set them back? It gets the people to post and make comments, thus exposing 'troublemakers' for the first round of arrests by stormtroopers when the hammer falls
Reply from The Daily Bell
So your argument is, what? ... Shut it down so everyone can hide "in secret?" If no one knows anything then everyone will be safe?

"why would the internet set them back?"
Gee, how would you know about "them" in the first place - WITHOUT the internet?

Mike Adams: "#2 - The fluoride that's dripped into municipal water supplies is actually a highly toxic industrial chemical byproduct"
From today's Click to view link , "What's in your Water?":
"Now declassified files of the Manhattan Project and the Atomic Energy Commission shows that the original motivation for promoting fluoride and water fluoridation in the U.S. was to protect the bomb and aluminum industries from liability"
"Originally, the fluoride used to fluoridate water supplies came from the aluminum and atomic bomb industries. A couple of years later, they switched to an even more hazardous waste product: hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate fertilizer industry"
"This hydrofluorosilicic acid also typically contains arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury, plus a variety of other contaminants that are part of the phosphate ore, and, shockingly, it does not have to be refined or filtered prior to being shipped and dumped into municipal water supplies"
" Studies on the health effects and safety of fluoride have always used pharmaceutical grade fluoride - not the far more toxic hydrofluorosilicic acid from the phosphate fertilizer industry. In the last two years, only TWO studies have finally dealt with the continued use of hydrofluorosilicic acid, and found it increases lead accumulation in blood up to seven times. It also increases lead absorption in bone, teeth and other calcium-rich tissues"

I was the happy ignoramus pursuing my interests (being in good health is one of them) and what not and then 911 came around. Now I see what has been done to mankind and I am literally in a shell shock each and every day. Why is it that I have been able to figure out things in less than 10 years, what others who have been involved in politics and world affairs for years, have not seen as clearly as I do? Because of the Internet, so yes, I agree with the topic of this article. It is because of the World Wide Web that caught me hungry for information and looking for the truth. And like any other cliche: truth is stranger than fiction! You can take that to your zombie bank.

AA and DB- I would NEVER want to shut it down, I just think you are mis-reading the 'enemy's' stregnth. I would love to believe the elite are being setback by the information we receive, but the flow of info is a two way street, and I'm sure all of our IP adresses are on a 'list'. Please tell I'm wrong, I may sleep better at night.

The Internet Reformation is a process not an episode. This is an ongoing evolution and the history of the Gutenberg Press tells us that at least initially it will be hard to shut down, or even slow down. Granted, we could be wrong ... Time will tell ...

There are many instances of this sort of thing. Bisphenol-A is one of the main building blocks of many kinds of plastic. It was known to be a powerful estrogen mimic and to have other toxic properties. It is still used in all sorts of items that come into contact with food, cups, bowls, flatware, can linings and more recently in medical devices. It leaks into food particularly quickly when heated (gotta love those can linings). It may bring on early puberty in girls and feminize boys. It is probably the number one cause of breast cancer and affects many other maladies. These properties were well known to the makers of melamine when it first started becomming common more than a hundred years ago. Articles detailing these facts first started being published about five years ago.

Funny, wanted to highlight a piece from a zerohedge contributer about this theme and found you published one. Some snips
'Manipulation of the marketplace is no longer a subversive and secretive process, but open government and central banking policy!'
'Both U.S. officials and Chinese officials WANT more centralization. Do not be fooled. The notion that American people have been fed, however, is that China wants a weak currency and export dominance for selfish ends. The notion the Chinese people have been fed, is that America wants to have its cake and eat it too; demanding a larger piece of the export market while at the same time expecting ultra-cheap goods from overseas. On the surface, they are both right, but go deeper, and you will find the tides of engineered globalism at work.'
'Ultimately, there is no APEC, at least not one that includes the U.S. There is only the ASEAN trading bloc, which is about to become the Asian Union. That's right…they are ready. In a barely reported announcement from China, a proposal has been announced for the formation of an ASEAN central bank, designed much like the European Central Bank (ECB),'
'What this means, essentially, is that there will not be a 'collapse' of the EU in the traditional sense but, as we discussed here at Alt-Market last year, there will be enough chaos to frighten still sovereign minded Europeans into giving up certain economic and social powers and freedoms. A new EU will form, on the argument that it was 'state sovereignty' and a lack of cooperation that caused the crisis to begin with.
This is total nonsense of course. Central banking policies and insane Keynesian borrow and spend strategies around the world are what caused this nightmare, some would say by design (including myself).'
I think you will enjoy the rest of the analisis as well. Enjoy Click to view link . May the reformation continue!

Internet Reformation is great but how long will that last after Net Neutrality is established on Nov 20th. the beginning of the end.

Change always starts in the mind. What we are witnessing and living through now is the internet driven delegitimization in people's minds of the state and the destructive institutions serving it. Outwardly things look normal, but the internet and personal experience are rapidly eroding public trust in the state, the central bank, the corporate media, the medical industry and the education industry.
People are hurting financially. They feel cheated and are very angry, having gradually woken up to the magnitude of their betrayal by mainstream everything. The Occupy movement, however misdirected its anger, represents the early stirrings of rebellion. The tipping point will be reached when some new ham-fisted outrage, such as revenue enhancing speed cameras in major cities or FDA regulations designed to drive most nutrient supplements off the shelves, will trigger an eruption of mass civil disobedience. Those millions who had obediently gone along but silently seethed in anger at arrogant, abusive officialdom will join the radicals in the street to demand change. The final straw will have been dropped and timorous deference to state power will vanish.
This is how seemingly invincible regimes such as those of the Soviet Bloc are suddenly and unexpectedly swept away.

The Internet is TOO HUGE & GROWS TOO FAST for any one entity to get a handle on HALF OF IT. That said, I predict the impact of this technology is going to be UNIMAGINABLE.

"been able to figure out things in less than 10 years, what others who have been involved in politics and world affairs for years, have not seen as clearly as I do?"
... because... , politics, world affairs, law is about control, unproductive by definition but consuming vast resources. THEY KNOW and KNEW this far before the internet allowed this knowledge to penetrate the body politic and have a serious effect in overcoming statist subverted education and MSM whose only point is to propagate the "big lie" (we are not free, freedom is dangerous and wiser heads must be "in control").
THEY "do see", but their survival (as predators) depends on "we the people" being manipulated and misinformed. This is easily remedied:

The capacity to do damage and the power to rule come from the counterfeiting of money and the unassumed debt it represents.
When people shrug off the debt and won't accept toilet paper in exchange for their labor, the gig is up.
That's one of the biggest undercurrents of the reformation. It's a possible Black Swan event headed broadside into the entire structure.
