Unfortunately the long term solution is education, looking at some of my university provided course material that would not pass an english exam with a decent mark i have to wonder.

I've met and trained graduates that made me question the value of a university education...

For sure, to be a gov. official, especially at developed world, you need at least uni graduate, right ? Cmmiw, but, fact is thing like this still happening -> HERE:palm:

As far as I know, there are no particular educational requirements for elected positions in the US government, it's entirely up to the citizens to decide who to elect.

In fact, sometimes, you don't even need to be alive to get elected https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/26281/4-dead-politicians-who-still-got-elected

It is a sign of the times that no matter how cuckoo, people aren't being fired...

They are (finally) when they do stupid things.

Weird that, the coincidence between anti maskers, anti vaxxers, anti 5G/4G/3G/WiFi, extremist political views, anti-islam etc. etc.

It's almost as if there's an advantage to be gained by sowing division and distrust in science and government.

Anti mask rally. What a bunch of fucktards.

Really wish that there is/are volunteers that known to be fully asymptomatic with Covid19, and while he/she/they are medically tested positive with their body full of the virus load, then join and infiltrate the rally, and stand in front and close to those f**tards while chanting NO MASK ! out loud again and again, while spraying the load, and let the virus and the body immune system decide.

Sounds nasty and evil, but maybe this is needed.

From that recent thread  "WiFi Router Guard (Blocks About 90% of WiFi Router EMF!) Blocks 5G"

It looks like they gone from tin foil hats to kitchen utensils for the metal mesh.

Does that make him not eligible for having a personal opinion about something ?

Absolutely he's entitled to an opinion, but that doesn't entitle him to a position of influence to express it from.

In case someone thinks that 5G conspiracy theories are harmless:
A large car bomb was exploded in downtown Nashville, TN on Christmas morning, causing extensive damage but fortunately only three injuries.
The authorities have found pieces of the perpetrator, who was blown up in the explosion, and matched his DNA.
This is preliminary:  lacking any other known motive, it is suspected that he was motivated by 5G conspiracy websites, since the explosion was outside of an AT&T switching facility, which was seriously damaged.

I must admit that also was my first thoughts about the bombing as well.  We here in the UK have had 5G repeater towers destroyed by fire etc. I think it's only a matter of time before lives are lost as a direct consequence of such nutters and I think its high time the authorities took a more active role in shutting down these websites and other platforms they use to deny them the access to spread their sick beliefs onto others who may be easily swayed towards such beliefs and more.

I agree that conspiracy theorists are harmful.  E.g. recently China has thrown a Covid conspiracy theorist in prison for 4 years for this reason.  The reaction to this by the right wing in the West was predictable: it is an affront to freedom!

Well, my mother in law told me a couple of weeks ago about her hair stylist suggesting the vaccination will also implement a chip created by Bill Gates to control the whole world.
You can't make this up, can you?
Luckily I could talk her out of it (she trusts me in these "technical" things), but those diffuse fears are obviously more widespread than one would expect. At least the church still uses the concept of "devil" and "hell", which is similar fearmongering, and it worked perfectly fine for centuries...

I saw the still picture version a while ago and I thought it was photoshopped. Apparently not. What the actual fuck.
Imagine thinking this video is real and looking down on 5G nuts ::)

Because they would do it if they could and not everybody has the technical knowledge to be sure that they can't :P
It's a major problem which isn't going to be easily resolved anytime soon.

Clarke's third law springs to mind: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

Of course, your level of technological understanding / savvy sets the threshold for what "sufficiently advanced" means...   I suspect we all have a threshold, no matter how good we are!
