“All mistakes originate with people’s acting like experts thoroughly familiar with a subject, and looking down with an air of superiority on others.”
Yoshida Kenkō — Tsurezuregusa (ca. 1330)
April 23 2020 — Our blog is under serious attack. Over the years, I may perhaps have been right too many times and the recent confirmation of my old story on Crypto AG has surely upset a few people. So, I have reasons to fear that a decision to shut down this blogger may be under discussion. But, today, I will not talk about this threat. As this old man celebrates another birthday, I think I should reflect on a very simple question: Why do I blog anyway? Is it worth the troubles? Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY

Whether the day has been a good one or not, I always end the evening reading a few words from the Tsurezuregusa, both in old and modern Japanese.
Tsurezuregusa — Essays in Idleness, also known as The Harvest of Leisure — is a collection of essays written by the Japanese monk Yoshida Kenkō between 1330 and 1332.
The work is widely considered a gem of medieval Japanese literature and one of the three representative works of the zuihitsu genre, along with Makura no Sōshi and the Hōjōki.
There is no doubt that Yoshida Kenkō was an amazing fellow. Surprisingly, I also like to think of him as one of the first bloggers.
Every day, Kenkō posted a short note on his walls, not Facebook at the time, but the walls of his cottage.
Seven centuries later, these stories still inspire us to reflect on the meaning of life, truth, love, beauty, uncertainty, and death.
Truth despite uncertainty, Love, and Beauty are themes I enjoy writing about. These ideas are worth living for, and thus dying for.
If the Deep State wants to shut me down, so be it…
PS: This week, the Belgium Intelligence Services have issued a warning about “useful idiots” spreading disinformation about 5G in order to propagate Russian interests!
This is simply Orwellian. Let me repeat. The link between microwave exposure and cancer has been clearly established by a $30 million animal study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program [NPT]. That is the United States of America, not Russia!
A few days ago, I was asked if I wish to nominate someone for a very important scientific prize. I have decided to nominate the NPT scientists who conducted this experiment. Perhaps, it will help people to understand that “these tumors are no rumors.”
The Belgian State has lied about COVID-19 since day one, just like they have lied about 5G for years. Criminal collusion between Belgian politicians and a Telecom operator can be proven. I can also provide evidence that public servants have helped China to mount an espionage operation in Brussels. In all these stories, the complicity of the Belgian media was a necessary condition. At least one newspaper was paid to spin Chinese 5G propaganda. But even the [French language] Belgian Journalism Ethics Commission appears to have been corrupted by Chinese money. I guess that I have a few stories to tell. And that is why I will keep on blogging. My friends, Stay tuned…
