That is exactly the problem. Why is the information kept secret, classified
or confidential? Who is keeping it secret and why and for what purpose?What are
the motives and reasons and intentions for doing so. Contrast that with the
loss of the privacy of the individual and their data...And most importantly of
all... how do we get important information declassified... and develop habits
amongst the ruling elites of making it open source in the first place.
Until then, we are all prisoners of propaganda, false flags and deception. The
best one can do is not to believe anything these fantasists say and do ones own
research, become a forensic political detective and scientist and never trust
politicians and governments until such time as you are satisfied that you are
getting some semblance of the truth. Goodness knows how many times in my life I
have become misled, as much through my own fault or mistakes or confusions as
that of others. The temptation of wanting to believe when the facts demand the
opposite is very seductive, a honey trap in itself. Its called free thinking,
and confusion and testing and making mistakes is part of the learning. The
quest for truth is not an easy task, there are so many of them.
John Young at cryptome and many others have been banging on for years about
how f*cked up the internet is becoming. That is one of the reasons he created
cryptome, warts and all. The virtual reality of the internet appears to be
getting taken over by fantasisers, liars, deceivers and snake oilers and
general nitwits. I personally check out what I can, go to original sources
where possible trying to check out the facts and the twists and distortions in
the reportage so that I can make up my own mind, but even the universities and
research establishments are riven by ulterior motives other than research, from
government funding to protecting their copyright. And there is so much
disinformation that a person on their own cant keep up with it all.
Lobbyists and cultural heritage organisations, charities and philanthropics
and other NGOs provide the soft power to back up the hard power of the most
powerful nation states.
The intelligence agencies are of no help either, joining in on the game with
their massive resources and power, the result of their interference being
confusion of the masses, and more importantly themselves! Rarely do they
predict anything of value or substance apart from when it comes to gearing up
their own case for extra funding or legal and political power.
It is a strange paradox that we now live in a world where great numbers of the
worlds' citizens have access to a wonderful world wide learning and knowledge
resource only to be befuddled, bemused and deceived by organisations and people
paid to deliberately lie, distort and deceive and misrepresent or sell bum
goods and services; either because they are following the utopian dream of the
perfect society or following the money and quest for absolute control and power
through international corporate governance. Their quest knows no bounds.
Chemicals of all kinds rule the roost, from alcohol and other hallucinatory
drugs to plastic and rare elements to other nerve gases and agents. Consumption
and instant gratification have become the norm. Far more important than
establishing truth...whatever that is...😉
Sorry but I don't have any easy answers. That's the way of the world...tough
though it may be...and my feeling is that it is going to get even more diverse
as we go along.
Still it makes life so much more interesting, far better than living in the
infinities of heaven or hell...don't you think😁🤔

Lavrov said the document indicated that the samples from Salisbury contained
BZ nerve agent and its precursor. He said BZ was part of chemical arsenals of
the U.S., Britain and other NATO countries, while the Soviet Union and Russia
never developed the agent.
