Thoughts about recent world events

The recent terror events in Israel and the overall situation around the world have affected me greatly, and I feel quite distressed. So I apologize, but I feel the need to leave the professional realm and share some of my thoughts.

I might be mistaken, but I feel as if we have all have become pawns in a game of chess held by the elite world leaders. They have the tools and capabilities to use the media, technology, pharma, and other means to control our every movement and thought. Our personal and communal freedoms have been disappearing in front of our eyes.

Innocent people are being manipulated and dying through wars, diseases, poverty, and desperation. Fundamentalism and hate are spiraling out of control. Physical and social experiments are being carried out on populations around the world.

Traditional and social media fill our brains every day with frightening scenarios- from war to deadly diseases and poverty. The messaging is “somehow” perfectly synced worldwide. People are being kept in a perpetual state of panic.

Technology has become our best friend and worst enemy, depending on whose hands it is in. Lies are being spread, history rewritten, and a sense of impending doom is overtaking everything. Depression, violence, addiction, and poverty have become commonplace.

Corrupt leaders everywhere are inciting us against each other. And people are falling prey to this culture and spewing hate at anyone who thinks, looks, or feels differently from them.

When we are distracted by hate and fear, it becomes easy for these leaders to do as they please.

They also gather data about everything- from our health, movements, purchasing habits, and more. I wonder what they need it for? Might it be to create laws and policies for their own benefit? Nobody has asked us if we agree to it. And, because we are utterly dependent on the very technology that is monitoring and identifying us, we can no longer prevent it from happening.

It’s become overwhelming. And perhaps because we have become so distracted by the media, we have fallen asleep. So, I believe it’s time to wake up. We have to make a change before it’s too late. Too much is at stake.

I think it’s time we stop and look at those around us. Let’s turn everything off for a while and start trying to assess what’s happening. Let’s try and speak to members of our families and communities and see how they are feeling, physically and mentally.

And let’s simply try to do good. Because everywhere you look, there are people in need. And we all have the power to start making change.

I suggest we try to listen to our inner voices; quietly. We are not robots and must not let technology-led societal experiments take over our minds and souls. It has to stop. We have the power to make our own agendas and to facilitate positive change. And we must begin.

And I pray that G-d will help us accomplish this mission.
