Residents of Windsor, a Canadian city near Detroit, have been complaining about a mysterious noise interfering with their daily lives for over eight years now, but despite numerous attempts to establish its origin, nobody has been able to figure out what’s causing it.
Called the ‘Windsor Hum’, the mysterious noise plaguing the Canadian city of over 210,000 people reportedly varies in intensity and comes and goes at random intervals. Sometimes it can be heard for just a few hours, and other times it lingers for days, causing those who can hear it to suffer from symptoms like severe headaches, sleeplessness, irritability, depression, among others. Some residents have been so affected by the Windsor Hum that they packed up and moved far away just so they could escape it.

“You know how you hear of people who have gone out to secluded places to get away from certain sounds or noises and the like? I’ve wanted to do that many times in the past year or so because it has gotten so bad,” Windsor resident Sabrina Wiese wrote on a closed Facebook group dedicated to finding the source of the hum. “Imagine having to flee all you know and love just to have a chance to hear nothing humming in your head for hours on end.”
“You can’t get away from it. You go outside to work in your garden, you go outside to enjoy the sun, the noise is there,” 64-year-old Mike Provost told The Guardian, two years ago. “If you think of thunder, and you take that thunder and constantly repeat it for hours and days, weeks, that’s all it is.”
Some residents describe the Windsor Hum as the sound made by a subwoofer, others as an idling diesel engine, and some even compare it to the the Star Trek Enterprise preparing to go into warp speed. The one thing that all those who can hear the Windsor Hum agree on is that it is debilitating. Because it’s so inconsistent, coming and going at various intervals, and varying in its intensity, it’s virtually impossible impossible to get used to.

Animals apparently have it even worse, according to Gary Grosse, a Windsor resident who has dedicated thousands of hours to finding the source of the hum and silencing it.
“Animals are being medicated for anxiety too. It sounds really freaky, but there are dogs crying all the time because animals are more susceptible. We even have some cats that won’t go outside,” Grosse said.
Identifying the origin of the Windsor Hum has been compared to chasing a ghost. Mot only is it inconsistent, but it’s also not heard by everyone in the city of Windsor and its vicinity. However, its existence is hard to deny if only by the number of reports about it. Six years ago, over 22,000 people dialed in to a local teleconference to complain about the hum and the effect it could have on their health and on the foundation of their home.
“It’s as if you had a fire hose moving back and forth and the people who have the water falling on them hear the noise, and if you’re outside that stream, you don’t hear the noise,” said Tim Carpenter, a retired consulting engineer who specialized in geotechnical engineering and machine vibrations.
Over the years, the Windsor Hum has been associated with all kinds of crazy conspiracy theories, like secret tunneling, UFOs and covert Government operations, but while you can’t rule out any possibility at this point, many Windsor residents are convinced that it has to do with the blast furnace operations on the nearby Zug Island, owned by US Steel.
“We didn’t identify the smoking gun, but there’s enough evidence there to strongly suggest that that’s the likely source,” said Colin Novak of the University of Windsor, one of the lead researchers on a 2013 Canadian government study of the hum.
Over the years, activists trying to solve the mystery of the Windsor Hum have complained that US Steel has been uncooperative and secretive about its operations on Zug Island. Both the New York Times and The Guardian attempted to contact the company about this issue, but it did not respond to requests for comment.
Gary Grosse and several other Windsor residents even pushed the idea that US Steel be given immunity from a lawsuit if its machinery proves to be the cause of the hum, on the condition that the company investigate the noise and take steps to mitigate it if it turns out their machines are causing it. Unfortunately, that proposition was put forward two years ago, but nothing has changed. The Windsor Hum still torments people, and there’s virtually nothing they can do but abandon their homes and move somewhere far away.

exist, and are even widely known, but the first things to get past are your own doubts and fears. It can be hard to step out of the box of orthodox, conventional, mainstream, allopathic Western Medicine, especially when faced with a serious illness like cancer. However, the prospect of facing surgery, radiation or chemo, each with its own set of toxic and even lethal side effects, is not appealing. Below is a summary of a variety of natural cancer cures; many are proven natural cancer treatments with a solid record of efficacy, while others are natural cancer remedies which are promising enough to consider.
Humanity has a very good idea of how to handle cancer for a long time – it’s just the top natural cancer cures have been suppressed because there was no money in them (couldn’t be patented by Big Pharma) and because they threatened the Big Pharma monopoly, which is carefully guarded by the likes of the CDC and FDA.
The brilliant discoveries of Royal Raymond Rife were suppressed by the FDA and AMA, but luckily Rife Frequency Therapy has survived. It uses radio frequencies to kill germs. There is always a frequency at which a germ will vibrate until its structure is destroyed, just as the opera singer can shatter a wine glass with her voice. Most bacteria, viruses and other pathogens have very weak outer cell walls; when the right frequency is aimed at them, they dissolve. There are also a range of zappers, blood purifiers and devices based on this principle, either made by or named after Bob Beck and Hulda Clark.
In my earlier article Natural Cancer Cure Laetrile (Amygdalin, Vitamin B17) Works Better than Chemotherapy, I outlined how laetrile has the prized ability to target cancerous cells while leaving healthy ones intact. In this way, it is far superior to chemotherapy which is an indiscriminate killer. I am still amazed by the fact that the solutions to cancer are to be found in Nature right in front of our noses, if we just care to broaden our perspective. Here’s exactly how laetrile works:
“Laetrile is made of 4 parts, two of which are glucose, the third of which is benzaldehyde and the fourth of which is cyanide. The mere mention of the word “cyanide” tends to send people into mild shock since it is a well know poison. However, the cyanide and benzaldehyde in laetrile are not free molecules, and come naturally bound within other molecular formations. In fact there are many foods including vitamin B12 that contain cyanide, but they are safe since the cyanide remains locked up as part of another molecule.
Now here’s the brilliant part: cancer cells contain an enzyme that healthy cells do not, beta-glucosidase, called the “unlocking enzyme”. This enzyme causes the release of both the benzaldehyde and the cyanide, thus destroying the cancer cell, but cannot occur in a healthy cell, since it doesn’t contain this unlocking enzyme. Additionally, there is an enzyme in healthy cells, rhodanese, which catches free cyanide molecules and renders them harmless by combining them with sulfur. By binding the cyanide to sulfuric rhodanese, it is converted to a cyanate, which is a neutral substance. Cancer cells don’t contain enough sulfur to do this!”
Another important aspect to laetrile are the 2 glucose parts. Recall that cancer cells do not gain energy aerobically (through oxygen) but rather anaerobically (by fermenting sugar); in fact, cancer cells consume around 15 times more sugar than normal healthy cells. This means they steal the energy from the food you eat, but you can use this fact against them. Cancer cells are way more attracted to sugar molecules, so when you pair a cancer-killing molecule with the sugar molecule, the cancer cell will consume both and end up dying. It’s a kind of Trojan Horse killing method and is the exact same principle by which the other natural cancer cures work, such as ones with baking soda.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate or NaHCO3) has been used in a variety of ways to heal cancer. As mentioned in part 1, the Italian medic Dr. Tullio Simoncini believes cancer is a fungus and has had great success in treating patients with IV (intravenous) baking soda. Others have paired baking soda with a sweetener such as maple syrup, in a Trojan horse like way. Since cancer cells consume 15 times more sugar than normal cells, they are attracted to and gobble up the maple syrup, which is bound to the baking soda. Then the baking soda (a very alkaline substance) forces a rapid shift in the pH of the cancer cells, killing them. The cancer cells can’t withstand such alkalinity.
DCA (short for Sodium Dichloroacetate) became widely known after cardiologist Dr. Evangelos D. Michelakis, working at the Department of Medicine at the University of Alberta, Canada, found in 2007 that it led to regression in lung, breast, and brain cancers – sometimes causing the tumor mass to shrink by 70% in just 3 weeks! As discussed in part 1, one of the hallmarks of cancer is that the cancer cells have overridden the command to commit suicide (apoptosis). DCA corrects this by turning on the mitochondria of cancerous cells, which directs them to commit apoptosis.
DCA is an ordinary molecule with extraordinary abilities. It is non-toxic, odorless and colorless. DCA is a small, simple compound that cannot be patented – and so, since it is not a drug and does not require a prescription, it threatens the profits of Big Pharma, who don’t want you to know about it. It only affects cancerous cells and leaves healthy cells intact.
Dr. Max Gerson was a brilliant German doctor who took in weak cancer patients after Western Medicine was done with them and said “You’ve tried all our treatments. There’s nothing more we can do for you.” Gerson then managed to heal an amazing percentage of them. In his day, skin TB was the scariest thing, not cancer. Gerson cured 446 out of 450 skin TB patients, which is a greater-than-99% cure rate!
The Gerson Therapy is predicated on the fact that the 2 main causes of cancer are deficiency and toxicity. The Gerson Therapy is basically 3 things:
1. Salt and Water Management (restrict sodium, increase potassium)
2. Toxin Removal (performs coffee enemas, restrict animal protein)
3. Energy (ATP) Production (add iodine, perform hyperalimentation [best nutrition in largest possible quantity])
The Gerson cancer protocol basically consists of 13 vegetable juices (8 oz each) per day, 1 vegetable soup, herbal teas and coffee enemas. There are no animal products, no alcohol, no caffeine, no salt, no white sugar (a little honey is OK), no grains (except a little rye), no legumes, no berries, no pineapple and no mushrooms allowed. The tumors do not grow on the sugar in the vegetable juice, because the enzymes keep them in check.
Gerson’s work has continued on under the watchful eye of his daughter Charlotte, who has fine-tuned the protocol. They discovered that cancer tumors grow on sodium, animal protein and fat (the one exception is flax oil which is the only oil that does not grow tumors but helps supply patients with essential fatty acids). Charlotte claims that salt/sodium is a type of poison (since it’s an enzyme inhibitor), and unnecessary for human nutrition needs, and therefore not part of the Gerson cancer protocol. In 1957 Danish scientist Professor Jens Christian Skou of Aarhus University discovered there is a sodium-potassium pump in the cell (for which he later received the Nobel Prize in 1997). Sodium resides outside of the cell (saltwater), whereas potassium is inside of cell (freshwater). Cancer patients need to eat lots of foods with high potassium/sodium ratios (e.g. banana, guava, fig, nectarine, peach) to rebalance the sodium overload. Just as there is a big lack of potassium and overuse of sodium in modern diets, there is likewise a lack of magnesium and overuse of calcium. The Gerson approach is very scientific in deliberately increasing the potassium and magnesium levels of its patients to starve the cancer of fuel. The results have been very impressive.
Another German doctor (Dr. Johanna Budwig) came up with a clever cancer cure based on combining 2 relatively common foods. In 1951, she found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in some essential substances (e.g. phosphatides and lipoproteins) which a healthy person’s blood always contained. She discovered a way to easily replace these substances using just 2 common foods, flax oil and cottage cheese. When mixed together, amazing results can be achieved, such as the disappearance of anemia and weakness, and the healing of diabetes and cancer.
The Budwig Diet works because it recognizes that the human body is electric, and that we acquire cancer when we let our inner voltage get too low:
“In Germany in 1952, [Dr. Budwig] was the [German] central government’s senior expert for fats and pharmaceutical drugs … considered one of the world’s leading authorities on fats and oils. Her research has shown the tremendous effects that commercially processed fats and oils have in destroying cell membranes and lowering the voltage in the cells of our bodies, which then result in chronic and terminal disease … The cells of our body fire electrically. They have a nucleus in the center of the cell which is positively charged, and the cell membrane, which is the outer lining of the cell, is negatively charged … when unsaturated fats have been chemically treated, their unsaturated qualities are destroyed and the field of electrons removed. This commercial processing of fats destroys the field of electrons that the cell membranes (60-75 trillion cells) in our bodies must have to fire properly (i.e. function properly). The fats’ ability to associate with protein and thereby to achieve water solubility in the fluids of the living body—all this is destroyed.”
It’s all about polarity. When the polarity is missing (due to the lack of electron-rich highly unsaturated fat), your body can’t make new cells properly. This can be reversed by providing flax oil and cottage cheese which together revive the stagnated growth process. This naturally causes any tumors present to dissolve.
Harry Hoxsey reportedly had a flamboyant personality, and he was certainly not the first (nor the last) natural cancer healer to go up against the Big Pharma-Western Medicine establishment, including the AMA and its guard-dog the FDA. After the AMA/FDA forced him out the US, he set up a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. Hoxsey cured many people of cancer with a concotion based on roots and bark that had worked for his family (of veteranians) to cure their horses of cancer. Ty Bollinger writes that the Hoxsey formula contained:
“A solution of cascara (Rhamnus purshiana) and potassium iodide served as a base for the following herbs, added according to individual cancer cases:
- Burdock root (Arctium lappa)
- Barberry or berberis root (Berberis vulgaris)
- Buckthorn bark (Rhamnus frangula)
- Stillingia root (Stillingia sylvatica)
- Prickly ash bark (Zanthoxylum americanum)
- Poke root (Phytolacca americana)
Hoxsey’s understanding of cancer was that it is a systemic disease created from metabolic imbalances that needed to be restored. His tonics were meant to help create homeostasis (internal stability), kill cancer cells, and remove the toxins created from killing cancer cells. This perspective is in line with almost all natural cancer treatments and practitioners.”
Interestingly, both Hoxsey and Dr. Gerson emphasized the importance of iodine in their natural cancer protocols.
Former Canadian cancer nurse Rene Caisse successfully treated the terminally ill for over 50 years with her remarkable plant-based formula. It removes toxic accumulation in the lymphs, bone marrow, bladder and alimentary canal, clears the respiratory channel, purifies the blood, protects the body against radiation, relieves pain, increases appetite and boosts energy levels – as well as curing cancer. Her formula came to be known as “Essiac” tea (which is her last name Caisse spelt backwards). The basic components of Essiac are sheep sorrel and burdock root which are known to kill cancer cells.
Essiac Tea is a long-proven method of curing cancer. It dates back to the 1920s and earlier. There are several brands on the market, however what is most important are the quality and freshness of the herbs (and how well they are processed so as to keep their nutrients intact), not the exact secret recipe or secret formula with certain proportions.
The ICRF rates the Essiac Tea treatment as only being effective on newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have fast-growing cancer.
There are also certain fruits which have been known to kill cancer, including graviola (also known as soursop) and paw paw:
“We [the ICRF] recommend graviola on the basis of several scientific articles, several testimonials, and several comments by practitioners (mostly from Brazil), however, Paw Paw is actually stronger than graviola at treating cancer. Paw Paw is the more potent of the two because of its more sophisticated and larger molecular structures. Graviola is sometimes called “Brazilian Paw Paw,” which can cause some confusion … Graviola only has single ring compounds, while the Paw Paw’s acetogenins have several double ring compounds (e.g. bullatacin) which makes Paw Paw much more powerful.”
These fruits work by decreasing or eliminating the production of ATP (the main energy fuel of a cell). This in turn lowers the voltage of the cell. For normal cells, there is plenty of ATP, thus lowering the level of ATP has no real effect. However, with cancer cells, due to the fact they create energy by fermentation, ATP is far more critical. When the ATP level of the cancer cell falls to a critical level, the cell falls apart.
These Central and South American fruits kill cancer in a different way to other protocols, and thus should never be combined with them.
Just as with the Essiac Tea treatment above, the ICRF rates the graviola/paw paw treatment as only being effective on newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have fast-growing cancer.
IP6 is short for inositol hexaphosphate. It’s a natural carbohydrate molecule present in most plant and animal cells. Your body makes IP6 from inositol, and you can also intake it from grains, legumes and meat. It regulates numerous intracellular functions, such as signal transduction, cell growth and differentiation, platelet function and cholesterol metabolism. Its anticarcinogenic properties are based on its ability to stimulate the immune system, act as a powerful antioxidant and its capacity to stop angiogenesis (one of the 6 hallmarks of cancer in part 1).
Stay tuned for part 3 where we continue to list more of the natural cancer cures that are abundant in our world.
Makia Freeman is the editor of alternative media / independent news site The Freedom Articles and senior researcher at ToolsForFreedom.com, writing on many aspects of truth and freedom, from exposing aspects of the worldwide conspiracy to suggesting solutions for how humanity can create a new system of peace and abundance.
Take off the terrorist’s mask, and it’s the CIA. Take off the revolutionary’s mask, and it’s the CIA. Take off the Hollywood producer’s mask, and it’s the CIA. Take off the billionaire tech plutocrat’s mask, and it’s the CIA. Take off the news man’s mask, and guess what? It’s the motherf*cking CIA.
CIA influence is everywhere. Anywhere anything is happening which could potentially interfere with the interests of America’s unelected power establishment, whether inside the US or outside, the depraved, lying, torturing, propagandizing, drug trafficking, coup-staging, warmongering CIA has its fingers in it.
Which is why its former director made a cutesy wisecrack and burst out laughing when asked if the US is currently interfering in other democracies.
Fox’s Laura Ingraham unsurprisingly introduced former CIA Director James Woolsey as “an old friend” in a recent interview about Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 alleged members of a Russian troll farm, in which Woolsey unsurprisingly talked about how dangerous Russian “disinformation” is and Ingraham unsurprisingly said that everyone should really be afraid of China. What was surprising, though, was what happened at the end of the interview.
“Have we ever tried to meddle in other countries’ elections?” Ingraham asked in response to Woolsey’s Russia remarks.
“Oh, probably,” Woolsey said with a grin. “But it was for the good of the system in order to avoid the communists from taking over. For example, in Europe, in ’47, ’48, ’49, the Greeks and the Italians we CIA-”
“We don’t do that anymore though?” Ingraham interrupted. “We don’t mess around in other people’s elections, Jim?”
Woolsey smiled and said said “Well…”, followed by a joking incoherent mumble, adding, “Only for a very good cause.”
And then they both laughed.
They laughed about this. They thought it was funny and cute. They thought it was funny and cute that the very allegation being used to manufacture support for world-threatening new cold war escalations against a nuclear superpower was something they both knew the United States does constantly, usually through Woolsey’s own CIA.
The US government’s own data shows that it has deliberately meddled in the elections of 81 foreign governments between 1946 and 2000, including Russia in the nineties. That isn’t even counting the coups and regime changes it facilitated, including right here in my home Australia in the seventies.
The US meddles constantly in other democracies, not “for a good cause” as Woolsey claims, but to advance the agendas of the loosely allied plutocrats, intelligence and defense agencies which comprise America’s permanent government. It does this not to improve or protect the lives of ordinary Americans, but to make the rich richer and the powerful more powerful, usually at the expense of the money, resources, homes, governments, livelihoods and lives of people in other countries. It does this with impunity and without hesitation.
And now we are in the middle of a steadily escalating new cold war between two nuclear superpowers, all under the extremely flimsy pretense of punishing Russia for its alleged election meddling but really to cripple the Russia-China tandem and prevent the rise of a potential rival superpower.
This is not cute. This is not funny. This is endangering the life of every terrestrial organism to advance the power-hungry geopolitical agendas of the US-centralized empire. Stop giggling, you f*cking freaks. We see you.
Comment: When the US bothers to look in the mirror, it always sees someone else.
We are now in the vortex of a major sexual epidemic. Are they putting something in the drinking water?

The other day I received an email from a young man with an odd polysyllabic name of African provenance. I copy and paste his email exactly as written:
I read your article on pornography and I’ve read so many other articles. I’ve been a porn addict for the past 7 years now and it’s quite scary that masturbation and porn damages the brain. Im just 20, with that, it raises questions like can I ever be someone great in life. I have dreams just like everyone else and I feel like I’m plunging greatly into my fall and demise. Even if I live, I don’t think I can live my full potential. Its quite sad. I just need to know if there’s hope to quitting this addiction and if at all I eventually quit, can I become fully okay from the effects. Thank you. Please Reply.
This was not the first request for sexual counseling I have received. Ever since my early articles on sexual politics in the Occidental Observer, I have received dozens of letters from all over the world asking for advice on sex problems. Needless to say, I am not a qualified sex therapist and the only advice I can dispense is the advice of an amateur agony aunt.
The sexual temptations that are nowadays dangled in the face of most men (and women too) are so outrageously extreme that the heroic St Anthony himself, had he encountered such powerful stimuli, would have been driven to despair. Ever since the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s, the sheer toxicity of this imagery has increased tenfold. As I noted in my essay on porn addiction:
“Pornography is no longer the relatively mild aphrodisiac it used to be in the Summer of Love, 1967, when the Sexual Revolution first began to take off. With the advent of the internet and the advance in audiovisual communications, its lethality has increased exponentially.
Future advances in the area of holographic images and reality drugs threaten to make porn so irresistible to future generations that ordinary sex as we know it will pale into insignificance and fail to exercise its customary charms. Autoeroticism will then reign supreme; and the zombie sex addict, dead-eyed and drooling with unquenchable lust, will inherit the earth and turn it into a vast masturbatorium.
This is one vision of the sex dystopia to come: a science fiction nightmare that has every chance of being realized. This is a world in which only the sexually fit will survive as the masters, those schooled to self-discipline and impulse control. The weak-willed and degenerate will not necessarily die out. They will simply sink into the amorphous lumpenproletariat as permanent slaves.”
Faced with acute problems such as these, many men are helpless and hopelessly addicted to pornography. Contrary to public misconceptions, women are by no means immune to these new vices, and even children in vast numbers are being sucked into the net of sexual vice.
Here is a young woman who was hooked on internet porn at the age of eleven:
It started as an innocent Google search. I was eleven. I wanted to know more about one of my favorite singers, so I searched her name. I ended up on a fan site, which had a chat room.
A few weeks later, I was chatting with a few people and one of them sent me a link. They told me to click it and not to worry about the part where it asked if I was eighteen, I’d like what I saw. I naively clicked and opened a porn site. At first, I was mostly surprised. I didn’t know it was wrong. I was curious. Something in me was shocked, but another part of me wanted to know and see more.
So I came back. Again. And again, every day. Soon I was saying goodnight to my parents then waiting until I heard my dad snoring to sneak back downstairs to the computer to watch porn. Every night, for hours and hours. I’d be quiet, turn off the sound, and clear the history after I was done.
Inevitably, I began to mimic what I saw on the screen. I started masturbating every day. Several times a day. I was hooked. I loved it, it was my secret and nobody knew. I withdrew from my family and friends.
I started making excuses to stay home alone…especially on Sundays when the whole family would go out to church. I’d say I was sick, or some other excuse. I didn’t really believe in God, anyways, so I didn’t care. I just wanted sex. I wanted to watch more porn. It got so bad that I’d go to my job as a babysitter, put a movie on for the kids, and then watch porn until the parents came back. I almost got caught more than once. But I was good at lying. My parents and family were too caught up in the busy chaos of homeschooling and taking care of the babies to notice. They never knew.
I built a world in my head. A world where I was that bad girl with huge boobs and all those guys going crazy for me. I was a stripper, a hooker, or a famous porn star. And I was good at what I did. But none of it was real.
I started cheating in schoolwork to make up for my lack of sleep and addiction. I had no desire for anything else. I became even sneakier, telling lies was my first language.
Thankfully, God radically broke in and saved me a few months before I turned fourteen. But three years of my life had been wasted, utterly consumed by my pornography addiction. I haven’t masturbated or been involved in porn in over six years now, but it still affects my life seriously. I would have reoccurring rape nightmares, and my mind is still a battlefield as I try to forget the thousands of images and filth that filled those years…. (See here)
That porn addiction has an even more devastating effect on little boys is another closely guarded secret.
Oxbow Academy (pictured here), an expensive residential treatment center in the wilds of Utah, is in fact a lock-down facility reserved exclusively for 13-to-17-year-old boys. Internet pornography has turned these youngsters into virtual masturbation machines.
Here in a soothing therapeutic atmosphere —”New Hope, New Help, No Secrets” is the school motto—emotionally damaged little boys who cannot stop masturbating to online porn are sent by their worried parents to be “cured”.
As part of their therapy, Oxbow has implemented a prison-like regimen for the boys. Kept under constant supervision by staff members and allowed only 10 minutes in the bathroom, the boys are monitored by video cameras and motion detectors at all times. Even while asleep. This is to stop them masturbating to past memories of porn. These memories torment them night and day, months after their last contact with inflammatory online imagery.
Shawn Brooks, founder of Oxbow Academy, admits ruefully: “They have a hard time not masturbating every 15 or 20 minutes.”
OBSESSION WITH INTERNET PORN
“Most porn addicts get agitated when they’re deprived of their online sources. But one boy from Chicago actually got the shakes, like a drug abuser. He was in very poor shape when he arrived. He’d been on his computer 10 to 12 hours a day looking at porn. He wasn’t eating, he was dehydrated, had poor hygiene. He’d done nothing but watch porn.” — Stephen Schulz, director of Oxbow Academy.

Some months ago I received this email from a man in a Scandinavian country. I copy his letter verbatim — no changes. Make allowances for his poor English:
I have red your article Pornography’s Effect on the Brain. It says all the details. I am almost driving in that direction where my sex appetite looking for different paths.
I introspected my self and it’s not me. I am wasting marriage life. My actual problem is fantasy. I don’t watch everyday but those images stocked in my brain. Now a days, when i see ordinary beauty women I feel to intimate with her. This is very annoying me. Mostly, i ejaculate in early mornings with masturbation in bed due to fantasy dreams. After ejaculate, I woke up and feel guilty. I am unable to enjoy the pure essence of sex with my spouse.
I used to practice mediation 3 years ago very sincerely. But now, during mediation brain can’t stabilize and over took bye sexual fantasy images.
Can you tell me what are the best practices to come out of this addiction?
Looking forward for ur reply.
K.P. (name redacted)
No, dear K.P., I cannot help you! Nothing I say will be of the slightest use. If even your wife cannot help you, how can I?
Yesterday, an article in the Daily Mail shocked me to the core. It was about a Church of England vicar, the Reverend Stennett Kirby, who spent most of his time, while not conducting religious services for his parishioners, masturbating to pornography and obtaining multiple orgasms with the help of crack cocaine, legal sex poppers, and other powerful aphrodisiacs.
“I’M A VERY HAPPY MAN.”
Rev Stennett Kirby, shown in a secretly-recorded video sitting on a sofa with a friend and apparently watching porn and talking about sex escorts.
It isn’t clear to me how this sexually hyperactive man of God managed to get himself ordained by the Church of England. It obviously took some doing. Shocking footage shows the sex-crazed vicar inhaling from a crack pipe and snorting cocaine before declaring “I’m a very happy man.”
The Daily Mail reports:
The 64-year-old is seen lighting some sort of pipe before snorting a suspicious white powder, in footage published by The Sun on Sunday. He is said to have talked about paying for a female escort, adding: “I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I’ve only got £10 left.”
The priest also apparently discussed buying the legal drug poppers on a visit to Soho in central London.
Mr Kirby is the vicar of West Ham Parish Church in Stratford and has held the position since 2007.
At a service on Sunday morning, the Rev Stephen Chandler, an associate minister at the church, broke the news to the congregation. He said:
“By now many of you may have heard of an article which has appeared online today concerning your vicar, the Revd Stennett Kirby. I am trying to support Stennett pastorally at this demanding time for him and he is very much in my prayers and Bishop Stephen’s [of Chelmsford], as are you all here at All Saints.
“The article contains serious allegations with regard to drug taking and other matters of an ethical nature. These allegations will now be investigated by the archdeacon.”
I really feel sorry for this pill-popping, porn-addicted seeker of multiple orgasms. Surely he could have picked a more appropriate line of work? Like, for example, a bouncer for a strip club. Why become a priest if all you’re interested in is sex escorts, crack cocaine, and jerking off endlessly to porn videos?
It makes no sense to me. Something’s seriously wrong. As the witch in Macbeth said, “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”
A parishioner of the masturbating man of God, who did not want to be named, is quoted as saying: “No-one would have known about this before the announcement. Everyone is very shocked.”
You can bet your life everyone’s shocked.
I keep saying to my friends almost every day, “Nothing shocks me anymore.” And then the next day I’m proved wrong. Something crops up that shocks the hell out of me.
What next? Is the Pope going to put in a good word for cannibalism and pedophilia? Are child sex brothels to be legalized in Europe, prompting the British people to abandon Brexit and apologize for voting to leave the enlightened European superstate?
Anything’s possible; the unexpected is the new expected.
One of these days, the way we’re going, we’re going to have explicit porn on every TV channel. MPs, not particularly well known for their sexual restraint, will be jerking off in parliament while passing new laws to make everyone else model citizens.
I said this a few years ago. I haven’t changed my mind. This is truer than it ever was before:
That pornography damages the character, weakens the will, and produces sexual deviance in those it infects, can no longer be doubted. That it can even, under the influence of drugs such as cocaine, occasionally turn heterosexuals into homosexuals, is an even more sinister development.
That long-term pornography use, accompanied by compulsive masturbation, actually causes structural changes in the brain is now beyond dispute. Whether this amounts to “brain damage” in the classic sense is a contentious issue and will be hotly denied by the Masturbation Lobby and all those who believe, erroneously, that masturbation is a stress reliever and a cure for depression.
Porn addiction and its invariable accompaniment, compulsive masturbation, are in fact stress increasers. They are often found as major symptoms in obsessive-compulsive disorders. Far from relieving depression, they intensify it. Indeed, they are all too often the underlying cause of the depression in that they generate a huge loss of self-esteem. These are truisms, patently obvious to all except the merchants of lies.
Meanwhile, there is little doubt that the virulent sex epidemic we witness all around us is a deliberately planned sex psyop. This is what governments want. The Puppet Masters who pull the hidden strings of our Western regimes, all masquerading as democracies, have managed to manufacture exactly what we see when we look around us: widespread neurosis, mass misery, the collapse of moral values, Christianity in ruins, and the coarse brutalization of the common man.
No need for gulags for those who consent to their own chains.
Are they putting something in the drinking water? I wouldn’t be surprised.

In 2015 it was reported that up to 50 million American adults had negative wealth and thus numbered among the poorest 10% of the world’s adults. This was disputed by Vox writer Matthew Yglesias, who said, “..that’s absurd. The poorest people in the world are the people with rock-bottom material living standards.”
It’s difficult for many Americans to admit the truth about extreme poverty in our country. Our poorest citizens may not be living in a farming village where they eat millet soup and walk a mile for water. But they have to deal with homelessness, alcoholism, mental health disease, opioid addiction, stress-inducing indebtedness and inequality, and pollution levels that are the highest in the developed world. All of that makes for rock-bottom living standards.
According to Credit Suisse data over the past three years, anywhere from 4 to 10 percent of the world’s poorest decile are Americans. That’s 20 to 50 million adults. It’s likely that many of them are only temporarily in debt, and that they have a much better chance than a third-world villager to climb out of poverty. But it’s just as likely that they’ll be replaced by other impoverished Americans, especially with an aging population woefully unprepared for retirement, and with the great majority of new job prospects temporary or contract-based, without security or benefits.
A Second Denial
“There are millions of Americans whose suffering, through material poverty and poor health, is as bad or worse than that of the people in Africa or in Asia.” That’s the conclusion of Princeton researcher Angus Deaton, who along with his wife Anne Case documented the “marked deterioration in the morbidity and mortality of middle-aged white non-Hispanics in the United States after 1998.” In a recent opinion he cites the rising mortality rates from drugs, alcohol and suicide. Based on World Bank and Oxford numbers, he estimates that over 5 million Americans are absolutely poor by global standards.
Again a Vox writer takes exception, this time Ryan Briggs, who argues that “poor people in rich countries often receive many non-cash benefits that boost consumption without boosting income.” But it goes both ways. As Deaton points out: “An Indian villager spends little or nothing on housing, heat or child care, and a poor agricultural laborer in the tropics can get by with little clothing or transportation.” Overall, the cost of living is much lower in such places. More importantly, among a deeply troubled class of Americans there are aspects of life that too often outweigh the cash or non-cash benefits. For that we need to look more closely at the meaning of poverty.
Poverty is Not Just an Income Number
Using a “dollar a day” estimate to compare poverty levels is impossible. A Brookings report notes: “There is a sad irony in the fact that the analytical tools used to assess welfare in the U.S. are poorly equipped to capture those whose lives are most precarious.” Furthermore, it’s an insult to desperate Americans to suggest that their state in life is better than they might think.
Poverty is not just the few dollars a day coming into the household, cash or non-cash. There is poverty in the diminishing quality of life for the bottom half of America. Poverty is the stress of overwhelming debt; the inability to pay for medical treatment during years of declining health; the lack of community support as part of a true safety net; the near-absence of retirement savings for over half the population; the steady decline of jobs that pay enough to support a family; the well-documented impact of America’s inequality on its citizens’ physical and mental well-being. Part of the definition of poverty is “the state of being inferior in quality.” The extreme level of inequality in the U.S. is battering the poor with a sense of inferiority. It’s ripping apart once-interdependent communities, and it’s triggering a surge in drug and alcohol and suicide “deaths of despair.”
This is not to understate the miserable conditions in many third-world communities. The point is that there are different forms of impoverishment. And, of course, some similar forms. While many villagers in the developing world don’t have sufficient food and water, it’s equally fair to say that millions of Americans have been exposed to contaminated drinking water and live in food deserts, often in frigid climates with substandard housing and insufficient heating. Also, while third-world villagers may not have the opportunities available in the U.S., those very opportunities are becoming less and less available to the neediest Americans.
It’s hard for people with wealth and power to admit all this. Because then they might feel obligated to do something about it.
