November 2021: heard in outer space

Starlog 20983.XXI.B.332.41.C More than 4,500 extraterrestrial vessels recorded around Saturn, chatter captured, decryption …

So, son, now you will understand why I brought you here on Cosmic Tours for your tenth birthday. Now what you are going to see and hear will make you laugh but it is not funny, not at all, especially if this species comes out of here and infects the Universe. It’s not a comedy, it’s a warning.

What do you mean, daddy?

Now, look here at this screen. It’s that tiny point over there, the third planet from this Sun, T2331.87243.1009.256, the Planet is called Earth in their most spoken language, translated to a similar concept in others. Earth means “mud”.

Son laughs. So what’s so special about it, dad? Their Sun is small, isn’t it? What is all this around their planet?

This is called space waste. The place is polluted from the bottom of the oceans to rivers to the earth itself and to space

Son bursts out laughing. Why?

Well, they even dumped toxic chemicals in the sea and dropped biological weapons there, out of sight, out of mind. They buried viruses in the polar ice, which is melting. They dump plastic in rivers and sewers, and there is now almost as much plastic as there is fish.

Son stop laughing. So what about their balance with their biosphere?

Yes, they call it nature. Well, they don’t. Their approach is to consume the resources without replacing them, to invade the forests and cut them down without replanting them, to slaughter the animals, to destroy the vegetation and they do it on a large scale, so the planet and its resources are not sustainable. In many countries, more than a quarter of species are now threatened with extinction and they destroy species that could be useful to them before they discover them and their qualities.

Yes dad but if they don’t know better why don’t we teach them?

Oh they know very well what they are doing. They have scientists, good scientists, and a lot of people are determined to protect the environment, animals, etc., but the planet is dominated by powerful economic groups called Lobbies. A journalist over there calls them the BARFFED (Banks, Arms, Finances, Food, Energy, Drugs). These filter the information available by controlling their media.

How do they do this?

Well, the media is funded by something they call advertising, it’s paid advertising for individuals and businesses, they pay the media to advertise them or their products, and they do it through the agency bias. It is these agencies that decide whether a medium thrives or fails and they do so by controlling access to advertising money based on the content of the medium. If they don’t agree, they turn off the tap.

The microphone crackles. Spaceship 2B.13.4572.C12 Please inform your son about the socio-economic vectors that govern this human species. I’m sharing your mic with educational units on the D34.619.V282 band.

OK Check. Yes, son. Hello everybody. So let’s start at the beginning. To begin with, not all children have the same rights (gasps heard in every spaceship). So the way it works is like this. The administration of the planet is based on invisible lines called “countries”. These have been developed in many cases by powers of the continent they call “Europe” who have invaded other territories around the planet by setting up governments favorable to their objectives (siphoning of their resources). Those who oppose it, often defenseless or armed with shields and spears, are slaughtered with machine guns. This violence escalated, to the point where one nation, a powerful one, used two atomic explosive devices on towns full of civilians, including babies and family pets, and the same nation strafed children in screaming with napalm, burning their skin and calling them “legitimate targets”.

Hiccups of widespread horror.

Thus, people living in these “countries” have different rights. If you were born on one side of the line, called a “border” or “border,” you have certain rights. If you were born an inch across the line, you may be classified as an outcast.


And the identity of a “country” is formed by what is called a “flag”. It’s a piece of material with symbols, often crosses or stars and lines and when they lift it everyone stops and they sing this stupid song called “national anthem”, each one with a different music and some of them with belligerent words, referring to the murder of other glorious people, hands over their hearts, a stupid expression of their faces, looking at the fucking sky, sorry. I … I can’t … BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! (he collapses laughing helplessly)

The whole fleet explodes with a hoarse laugh.

Question: Sorry to interrupt you, Mr. Speaker. But then, murdering another person is illegal!

No problem, you can all ask questions whenever you want. Murder is illegal. Yes. Unless it is done by a country with the permission of the government, they call it a “war”, then they can murder as many people as they want, including children, and it is not illegal.

Question: So could I say that for them, the more people you murder, the more legal it is?

Yeah, something like that. Let’s move on to education… depending on the “country” in which they were born, and sometimes depending on their gender, they receive different levels of education and have access to it depending on their place of birth and their gender.

Question: Does this mean that some of them finish their education phase better prepared than others, depending on the accident of birth and their sex?

Yes correct.

Troubles detected in all spacecraft.

Now, higher education after the second phase is as a rule paid in most countries, which means that if you can afford it, your child is in third phase education, which they call university.

Question: But how can it be called University if it is not universal?

One of the many puzzles on this planet, young citizen. And it can be very expensive, sometimes as much as a house. And how does it work ? Housing is not universally available and free. It used to be in some social systems, in which education, housing, public services, transport, leisure activities, medical care, including dental care were free, even the distribution of food, but this system was destroyed by the so-called BARFFED who today continues to spend a lot of energy to ensure that this model is no longer adopted, it cost them a lot of money, you see.

Depending on the location, a house costs money. In the cities, a lot of money, less in the countryside, but then they have a problem, how to get to work because although they have the technological means to work remotely, many refuse to adopt it.

general bursts of laughter,

So people have to apply to a bank for a loan, which they call a mortgage. Banks often only lend 70 or 80 percent of the loan, which means the buyer has to find tens of thousands of what they call dollars to make an upfront payment.

Question: How can they do it if they are starting their professional life?

Another enigma, young citizen. And another is health. Public health systems are under attack today by private insurance companies who want people to pay for their health care, which …

Interrupted by a deafening roar of sustained laughter

…. which means if you have money you survive, if you don’t have money then you will die. Let’s take as an example their latest vaccination program against a pandemic virus called Covid-19, let’s actually see their whole approach. Now sit down, you’re not going to believe it.

First, there is an alert for an unidentified virus. They believe it is from a lab in a country they call China, which was investigating bat coronaviruses.

Question: But the coronavirus is easy to cure!

Yes but they are not there yet, they still do not understand the transmission mechanism and they have no idea of ​​a holistic biological approach to infections / reactions, no idea at all, they are three centuries away from their time this. Anyway they are therefore developing several vaccines which give them some protection but only some countries have high vaccination rates, for example they have one at 90 percent, called Portugal, others richer than Portugal but where people refuse to be vaccinated …

General laughter

… and others with vaccination rates below 20 percent, so they’re going around in circles. New variants appear all the time and there are cases of people being fully vaccinated and catching the same disease twice (probably the vaccination saved their life).

Hoarse and sustained laughter, clicks on the consoles heard.

Question: Again, whether or not they get sick or protected depends on which side of an invisible line they are drawn and what stupid song they sing?

Mayhem in space as everyone laughs out loud.

Guys, who has to pay to go on a comedy show when we have Planet Earth 2021 to tune in to?

Check: time is up! It’s time to head back to base, there is another fleet waiting to see this monster show.

Lively discussions accompanied by sustained laughter as space travelers return to base
