What do atmospheric aerosol geoengineering, the genetic engineering of foods and the reordering of the human genome – have in common?
They are all part of an attempt to alter the fundamental building blocks of life and to put in their place an artificial substitute that is one hundred percent subject to the will of its owner-controllers.
Clearly these owner-controllers fully believe their personal vision of ‘the perfect life’ to be greatly superior to any other. But no megalomaniac knows that he is a megalomaniac, so unless physically removed from their position of influence – much damage can be expected to result.
Many of us today puzzle over the weird, surreal even, diversion that life appears to have taken to have allowed such anti-life authoritarian figureheads to gain any traction at all on this planet. Not just to espouse their insane visions, but to actually garner enough support to set them in motion.

While such a kink in human kind might tell some of the story, it does not tell the whole story; although there are obvious grounds for arriving at such a simplistic conclusion. Not least the fact that various forms of intellectual laziness are – and have been – fashionable for a long time. And if people don’t want to be seen as ‘different’ they will go to great lengths to fit into the accepted pattern of the day, decade, century.
