For instance, Dr Rosalie Bertell's research about geoengineering has to this day still not been properly debated in public.
Not only the powers that be, but also the social movements of today have not allowed this to happen. Very often, people reject radical new thoughts right away because they are too shocking for them.
A first reaction typically consists of ignoring them instead of trying to learn and do something about these perilous matters.
Most people simply deny
the possibility that something like 'military
geoengineering' may even exist. In an effort to avoid
confronting these uneasy truths, they repeat the term prepared by
those in power who want to do away with this sort of 'evil
knowledge' and call it a 'conspiracy theory'.
Of course, we know what the violence of our system - our 'modern civilization' - is based on.
It is rooted in 'patriarchy', as I name it in my critical theory approach. The intention of patriarchy is to change all of life, nature and humanity, in fact the entire world into a 'man-made', artificial one, that is not allowing life to exist any longer in its organic, natural and motherly ways on Planet Earth.
This man-made world is by definition a pater-arché one, a 'creation' of so-called human fathers instead of human mothers together with Mother Nature.
During the time to reach this patriarchal utopia, which is several thousands of years old, much violence has already been applied.
This violence has turned into trauma, but at the same time, it is considered 'forbidden knowledge' and is suppressed. It has been hidden on all levels and cannot be addressed openly.
And as long as this
patriarchal 'civilization' has not totally succeeded in transforming
life, nature, humans, the whole world - and the Planet itself - into
a completely man-made world, more violence will continuously
be applied as a necessary means of achieving its dangerous end
Because the patriarchal narrative tells us that there is no violence in the transformation process from the natural to the artificial - the machine - we are also always told that the result will be superior.
But the secret we must reveal tells us that violence does not lead to the better and improved worlds we are promised, but to what it actually produces:
Destruction is the overall outcome of this 'alchemical' - as I call it - transformation process through violence.
This is its logic, but nobody is allowed to name it. This is the 'evil' knowledge, the forbidden one, the forgotten one, the knowledge driven into the underground and thus made subconscious.
I call it,
Understanding this makes it clear how difficult it is to acknowledge what Rosalie Bertell is teaching us.
She teaches us that patriarchy in the form of the Military Industrial Complex (MIC), has started to destroy our living conditions and the Planet itself. I believe we are forced to do something against this, if we want to continue living on this earth.
This means that we have
to address patriarchy and its systemic, direct and structural
violence, running the risk of becoming the ones who break the taboo.
Just for quoting those sources I was immediately called a 'conspiracy theorist'...
As a result I was publicly 'murdered' and discredited, robbed of my good reputation as an academic, an activist, a person and a woman.
I was threatened by the Deep State and the Institute of Political Science at the University of Innsbruck where I had worked for more than 20 years.
The official Austrian media threatened me - being instructed from above, as I was informed by a whistleblower.
This is an indication of the deep hatred of the patriarchal system against life and truth, the real knowledge that is now emerging everywhere.
It shows patriarchy's need to cover up the truth, as quickly and as brutally as possible, by using its paid defenders.
The Haitian case had put me on the road to Rosalie Bertell's knowledge that was completely unknown to me.
With the help of her
research I learned how to explain what might have really occurred in
Haiti - and not only that, but much more. I wished that I had been
wrong, but I wasn't.
I decided to do the
latter. Otherwise, we would not celebrate the tenth birthday of the
Planetary Movement for Mother Earth in 2020...
It was as if She was calling me, and loudly so.
Knowing already what this decision of mine meant, I began my new life.
I informed my friends overseas who - contrary to those in Europe - were full of solidarity and support. They started a campaign for me that passed through many parts of the world, as I had done research in earlier years in different places and had many colleagues from social movements in many countries.
It was wonderful and it gave me strength so that I could move on.
The people of Haiti,
however, probably never knew about this debate that began after
their disastrous experience. Even the NGOs kept it away from them.
Hundreds of women
applauded in agreement, and we began organizing this movement from
However, we could not find a publisher! It felt like a boycott on all levels.
When we finally found one and succeeded in publishing Bertell's work in German, at the end of 2011, there was a second wave of hatred, discrimination and defamation occurring that appeared to me as if some people wanted to take revenge for being unable to prevent us from publishing Bertell's research.
So I had to stand up to
this new wave of insulting personal and fierce political attacks.
Where did she gain her power and energy from to do this work by herself?
Her 'dynamo' surely was
her immense and deep love for Mother Earth, our beautiful fantastic
planet that gives us everything we need. So, things were very clear
for her. And things should be very clear for us, as well.
My experience in these difficult last ten years with the PMME taught me the same.
I learned to love the Earth much more than I could have imagined, I learned about her as a huge cosmic living being, I learned to listen to her, to trust her, and to accept her power as mine as well.
Because, the power to go
on with this struggle stems from Her - not from patriarchy, of
For example, what should
we give up?
The time has come to
change from the patriarchal hatred of life to the love of life again
- which is the natural attitude of human beings. We have to
re-awaken this love, so we become aware and develop a planetary
Together with a 'weaponization' through,
...geoengineering belongs to the Fourth Industrial Revolution that has been proclaimed to build our future - or our no-future - in the twenty-first century.
The problems we are confronting are all related to each other.
The laissez-faire attitude towards the question of technology being welcomed as progress has to stop. There is a need to really look at patriarchy, the intentional destruction of the world including us humans.
The vaccines against COVID-19 intending to turn us into genetically modified zombies with implanted chips and nanobots, are in the process of application right now.
They are intended to lead
us towards 'transhumanism',
the end of mothers and of humanity...
