How is it that none of the 2020 presidential candidates has spoken out about the accelerating deployment of 5G? Not a peep. Can they really be unaware of the dangers— the foreseeable and preventable harms to public health, the environment, and privacy from corporate and government surveillance? And what of over one trillion dollars in misdirected taxpayer funds and ratepayer overcharges during the past twenty years, as alleged in Irregulators v. FCC?
Why are they so blasé or ill-informed about the mountains of scientific evidence and reliable data showing harms from exposure to Radio Frequency Microwave Radiation (RFR) by a growing number of people? Why are we, the public, standing by helpless when we are being asked to shoulder hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and fees under a startling “public pays principle” (as contrasted with the 1972 standard OECD polluter pays principle) to subsidize the shareholders of a few wireless companies? Are we collectively in a Consensus Trance?
