Last week, we covered the topic on how the left or progressive media refuses to factor in the full deployment of a massive weather control apparatus when reporting on climate change. Vivian Warkentin’s article The Real Inconvenient Truth published online at the Berkeley Daily Planet directly explains the details of why that is. That article was read verbatim on the air last  week. The phone calls during open lines that followed we’re mostly on point and very informed.

The last caller in response to Vivian’s article brought up the concept that at the root of all the weather control, carbon credit tax, agenda 21, smart growth, surveillance, etc; is consumerism and the disposable society. Nothing is really made to last, for decades hidden within electronics, cars, trucks, etc go down the list is a built in obsolescence.

I mentioned a form of activism to at least make a dent in this runaway disposable society which would be a form of the Boycott Divest Sanctions movement or BDS, is a Palestinian-led movement for freedom, justice and equality. Inspired by the South African anti-apartheid movement, the BDS call urges action to pressure Israel to comply with international law.

BOYCOTTS involve withdrawing support for Israel and Israeli and international companies that are involved in the violation of Palestinian human rights, as well as complicit Israeli sporting, cultural and academic institutions.

DIVESTMENT campaigns urge banks, local councils, churches, pension funds and universities to withdraw investments from all Israeli companies and from international companies involved in violating Palestinian rights.

SANCTIONS campaigns pressure governments to fulfil their legal obligation to hold Israel to account including by ending military trade, free-trade agreements and expelling Israel from international forums such as the UN and FIFA.

This is a powerful non-violent form of activism that has a history of success.

What could that look like? We know the BDS movement has been very effective to the point where 9 states have issued legislation requiring the state to create a blacklist of institutions and companies that engage in or promote boycott, divestment, and sanction (BDS) activities against Israel—and then further requires the state to withdraw or forgo investments in these blacklisted entities. The move has earned well-deserved comparisons to the red-scare tactics of Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy.
