When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on church reform to the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517, he changed the world. The Catholic Church got furiously angry, but the damage was done in this singular public act. When Electrosensitivity UK put up posters about the dangers of 5G around Britain last year, they were attempting to change the world. This so upset the government that a court ordered the posters taken down, an act of censorship. Still, many people saw the posters. Some were influenced. And censorship in an allegedly free society bespeaks fear.
Public protest grabs public attention: it’s in your face. Internet protest is less effective: people have to look for it. Governments encourage Internet protest; it masquerades as democracy while keeping people off the streets. The man or woman on the Internet or texting on a smartphone isn’t throwing bricks or Molotov cocktails. The Internet keeps people quiet.
The Internet may have its uses; it also has severe limitations. For one, people tend not to read online text the way they read the printed word. One study found that people rarely read more than six paragraphs before their attention wandered. People do not retain information they have read online as well as information they have read in print. And people do not necessarily believe what they read on the Internet.
In short, the Internet is not the real world, while printed matter is printed matter. Do you want to influence people? Do you want to warn them about the dangers of wireless, the dangers of 5G? Do you want them not to buy a 5G phone, not to invest in telecom companies installing 5G, not to allow 5G small cells into their town or city? Then you need to get the information offline and into the real world. A man I greatly admire, Dr. Theodore Metsis of Athens, Greece* has informed thousands of people that wireless technologies are harmful, and that 5G will be worse. He wrote and self-published a book about the health effects of wireless technology, which he distributes free to anyone who wants it. Seeing the information in print is very persuasive. I know because I’ve lent my copy out again and again.
Not everyone can write or publish their own book, but you can print off articles about wireless technology and 5G that you find informative and pin them up them somewhere. Bulletin boards. Bus shelters (these are good because people can spend a long time waiting for a bus). Lamp posts. Underground and Metro stations. Anywhere they will catch people’s eye. They’ll get torn down, but till they are, they’ll get read. Again and again. Then print another article. Stick that up. And so on.
My six paragraphs are up. I hope you get my point. Print the information you want people to read and get it up on a wall, in the real world. Because that’s the only place that makes any real difference. We’re fighting a war against wireless technology, and we are the resistance. Vive la Revolution.
* Dr. Metsis, also writes many articles about the dangers of wireless technology and 5G for Greek newspapers, and was instrumental in persuading the city of Kalamata to refuse to become Greece’s first 5G “smart” city.
Read the ruling against ES-UK at https://www.asa.org.uk/rulings/electrosensitivity-uk-G19-1029264.html Ask yourself whether an ordinary member of the public is likely to make a formal complaint against such a poster. Do the public NOT have the right to be informed about the potential dangers of 5G?
