I had read about the dangers of 5 G technology about a year & half ago..& what I read made me cautious about jumping on the 5 G bandwagon;with the towers that they are installing all over certain cities..As many already know the Trump administration & China are at loggerheads over China big tech company that wants to roll out 5G to the world..But America an't having it ..it's about money, power, & who gets to rule the world with this technology... so my boy Ralph just made a video about it's dangers..also I found another video that also should be checked out..They want to drag every body into this world of being a cyborg...
True a power/money equation at hand and also control. The network is increasingly embedded not only in specific user devices but in refrigerators, air conditioning, etc any type of machinery or product. Thus enhances monitoring and control. Add this on top of the electromagnetic fallout and health/psychological/emotional effects that can tie into brainwaves, and enhance manipulation of emotions and attitudes, and things are not necessarily the shiny future world boosters are pushing. Disturbing videos..
Note: I am not an "Egyptologist" as claimed by some still bitter, defeated, racist trolls creating fake profiles and posts elsewhere. You still fail.. LMAO..
I cant judge the pro or con of new technologies right now, usually it's both good and bad, but I say give it a chance.
anansi,that's a good way of thinking about technology..but my trust level is low concerning this G5 ..been hearing about the dark side of this technology for a long time now & with the rise of the( Far Right & Right) mix with totalitarianism (China) around the world ..well leaves me with a bitter taste...Power & control is like a drug & can be very seductive..it is said between Now & 2020 we will all see the handwriting on the wall...technology like anything else is neutral...but with evil intent or low level thinking..( greed, selfishness, & need to dominate,control) can easily produce a dark dystopia...do we really need all this technology ? Just because we can... does not mean we need it...should we measure progress by a straight t line with high tech being the goal of the highest achievement of Human kind ? Where Man creates himself as God ??.... And losses his/her Soul in the process...? ?
We are all at the Cross Roads in History...so which road does one want for him/herself ?? The picture below called" Time Wipe" by Kilart is my answer....
Just saw the film" Elysium " 2013 by the director who did" District 9" about South Africa which was a big hit in 2009 ....but" Elysium" did not get as much love...I think it is a fine cautionary tale about the future...with the income gap, divide ever widening & technology getting ever more invasive & scary.... add to that emigration being what it is not only in America but growing around the world..I feel this film speaks to this.. & needs another look IMHI

I find it quite ironic when you compare early 20th century depictions of a heavily technological driven future as this harmonious ideal utopian society where all basic human needs and necessities are met which no longer leaves mankind in wanting. Yet as the years went on the depiction has certainly gotten bleaker from Y2K to dystopian visions projected within various media platforms i.e. movies, video games, etc., with the most popular one being "The Matrix" and the ongoing battle over net neutrality.
