That doesn't make any sense. You might want to try using a dictionary. Maybe a little bit of punctuation here and there to make it easier on the eyes,
too. But back to that sentence again. What does it mean ? Please elaborate. The idea that Fukushima is used to draw attention away from anything is
in itself utterly ridiculous, since Fukushima is almost not mentioned in the news. How can something that's not mentioned in the news draw attention
Punctuation smunctuation. But I will try.
Consider for the way we get our news. Mostly through the TV. Mostly in 30 second items that tell us nothing in depth. We are given very little to
explain what is happening. Very little in the way of analysis. And by analysis I don't mean a summary. I mean an attempt to draw connections to points
past present and future, to facts we need to know about to understand a story. And most of all explanations that go beyond the immediacy of mere
description. So that we understand the wider implications.
Investigative journalism in MSM has ceased to exist. The last time we had a real investigative story in MSM was Watergate. Since then we have had
corporation dictated propaganda. Look at what the news coverage of Libya, and of Syria now. Coverage that was spin to lay the ground work for war,
So apart from not feeding us the full facts any longer, we are lied to. The news through TV is reduced to a spin, and magazine type sensationalism. We
learn very little, and yet we think we get informed. The news has become a vehicle for propaganda and very little else. That is an effective coverup
In the case of Fukushima since the very beginning of the disaster, there has been an attempt to divert attention away from the seriousness of the
disaster. The fact the danger from the power plant has increased not decreased since March 2011. The fact we who are not living in Fukushima province
Japan should be concerned about radioactive contaminants (radioactive isotopes) that lodge themselves in our tissues and that cause eventually severe
damage to the surrounding organs. We need be less concerned about say gamma rays coming from the damaged power plant. These contaminants are carried
in water and in food and in particals of dust right to us. No one in the Northern hemisphere is safe from them. In fact eventually contaminants from
Fukushima ejected into the jet streams and into the ocean find their way to the Southern hemisphere.
We hear a lot about the tsunami, and the earthquake, the victims, the damage we hear very very little about the state of Fukushima and the
contamination it is bringing to all of us. That is a cover up. Japanese people are learning more about it every day. They have been lied to constantly
by their government and by officials since the catastrophe began. However, protests grow bigger as people realise the situation is far worse than they
were told. The Japanese government has responded to public demand by ceasing the production of power from their nuclear plants around the country. But
this is only a temporary measure aimed at appeasing the population.
Don't you think a catastrophe on this scale, with the potential to cause the extinction of perhaps all of humanity eventually should get a little more
coverage in the media? Wouldn't you think by now, rather than governments attempting to focus on the 'war on terror', on the 'threat' of nuclear
strikes from Iran, from North Korea, from China, from Russia, would be very concerned about the most immediate nuclear threat of Fukushima?
Shouldn't Fukushima be in the news EVERY night? What are we getting instead? News about impending civil war in Syria, the need to end the rule of
Assad, and the rule of Ahmadinejad in Iran. We are being primed for war again. And yet the real war should be exacted against the ongoing
contamination spreading from Fukushima.
You might well ask yourself why they are not talking about Fukushima every night? Telling us what they are doing to assist the Japanese. My argument I
have already stated in bold type at the bottom of my post above. Re Frankenstein and the villagers
Consider the role opportunism plays in all of this.
Consider since March 2011 how the GFC has become far far worse, and how now there is every attempt being made to divert us all from disaster that is
the world economy.
Consider why nothing, nothing at all has been done to stop Fukushima puffing away in the light of the GFC and the collapse of Capitalism.
Big ideas to consider. It is the kind of stuff that makes you question your understanding of the world you live in and what you have been taught, of
