The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure.

More from an extraordinary Indian student

 

 

On October 7 Global Network board member Dr. Aruna Kammila organized a space week webinar for students and faculty at the law school where she teaches at Galgotias University near New Delhi - as well as students from around India. Several leaders from the GN spoke during the event.

I previously briefly mentioned here that after this webinar (which was attended by 103 people) one of the students contacted me and said she wanted to know more and do her school project on the space issue. So I made some suggestions including checking out the monthly Global Network space videos made by our board member Will Griffin. 

A couple days later the student (I'm withholding her name to protect her privacy) wrote to me again. I was brought to tears as I read the following:

Sir, I watched all the videos from Global Network's site and it was all very informative. I sat for 10 hours straight and took lots of notes not only for my project but also for the awareness.

Needless to say I was more inspired by all those videos and learnt so many things that have happened and are happening on our mother Earth.

I also learnt how the industrial corporations are liberally treated by violation of laws and how dangerous it is to establish 5G networks which again have connections with the Pentagon.

I could talk on and on about this issue now and I can't wait to break this information to my peers and I wanted to say I was never really interested in History of any kind of revolutions or any countries.

But the origin of this space warfare right from Hitler's appointment of Von Braun till Elon Musk's mission of hydrogen bombs [his plan to explode them over Mars] got me lots of thinking regarding our Earth.

I am an admirer of the sky. I go out of my home and watch the sky for hours and hours and admire how the clouds are moving and how the colors of the sky are painted with Sunsets and everything. But after learning everything, I do feel as a citizen of mother Earth, I do feel responsible to spread words around about what is going to happen in the next 5 to 10 years where we can't find any difference between satellites and stars in the sky.

I still have some of your blogs and Mr. Karl's blog and some of the documents like NATO's 2030 Plan that Tamara [Lorincz] mentioned to study and then I will start with my projects.

So far, this is the progress I made till now and I guess it's just a small amount and I will learn a lot in upcoming days for sure sir.

And I saw on the GN's website that you have a webinar coming on the 16th OCT I guess. Can I also participate if you allow me sir? It would be great to learn from all the speakers regarding the space issues and I would be happy to attend any of your webinars in forthcoming days.

And Sir, I am just a 19 year old third year college student studying law in Tamil Nadu, India. Probably I would be an advocate or magistrate after 4 years I guess. I would be happy to be part of your organisation and I am looking forward to meeting you if you come to India.

Now that I am not financially independent, I would surely donate funds for your organization once I am financially stable. Until then, I would spread words among my peers and my journey to talk about Space issues will never end till the weaponization and militarization ends.

This is what every organizer like me lives for - to hear from a young person that is responding and motivated, wants to learn more, and wishes to share with others. Fantastic!

It is quite difficult to get people to engage in political activity in today's world, with all the many problems facing the future generations. The level of despair and hopelessness is greater than I can ever recall.

So I thank this young woman for her courage to reach beyond all that and come to the conclusion that there is something important to admire and protect in the night sky. She is asking the profound questions of where does humanity come from, how do we protect our Mother Earth, and how can one person make a difference? 

These are all fundamental elements of what it means to be a human being.

Thank you for sharing with me this gift of your curiosity and determination.

Bruce
