The topics listed below are not officially banned in most countries, bloggers and small niche media touch them. The discussion of these topics in the state-controlled and mass media directed by transnational corporations is prohibited. We break this taboo and make a list of topics that are not discussed in the mass media.
The overpopulation is ignored by both the mass media and the population itself. People are extremely sensitive to this topic, believing that no one should interfere with their biological instinct of reproduction. To say that the excessive anthropogenic pressure on the biosphere of the planet is the main reason for almost all the problems facing humanity is strictly forbidden. Even if someone raises this topic, he will immediately be labeled as “fascist” or “Malthusian” and silenced. The mass media do not let to make a very simple conclusion: without the restriction of the birth rate, our planet is threatened by an ecological catastrophe. Such conclusions are prohibited.
The cause of suicides
The cause of suicides is the poor organization of society. A journalist who will connect the teenager’s suicide with the inhumanity of our society and find the reason in the existing political system will be rapidly kicked out. Suicide cases worldwide are generally ignored and presented as a private issue of a private person, no conclusions are drawn. Even if suicides take on a massive scale, like in India, where about 20,000 small farmers committed suicide in the past 10-15 years because they could not compete with large agro-industrial complexes, you will not read about them in the media.
Oxidation of the oceans
Taboo with some exemptions made. Sometimes it is mentioned, but do not reflect the whole tragedy of the situation. We are still alive with you only because the bulk of carbon dioxide released by cars, aircraft, and ships is absorbed by the oceans. Without the oceans absorbing dioxide, we would have suffocated long ago. Oceans are is slowly dying. Compared with 1980 we have 80% less large fish on the world market. By the middle of this century, the life in the ocean will cease. For example, 1 cruise ship throws out as many air pollutants per year as 1 million cars. The cruise companies keep silent about the huge harm their ships cause. The mass media won’t report about the inhabitants of small islands forced to emigrate because their ecosystem is destroyed, the fish is gone, coral reefs perished.
This is an absolute taboo, in the New York Times, you will never read an article stating that most of the goods and food that you buy in stores are manufactured using slave labor. Have you bought a bunch of bananas? And do you know that the people who collected them live in inhuman conditions, huddle in huts, without any amenities and get pennies? Do you have an iPhone? The box of iPhone won’t contain a reminder:”Thank you for buying iPhone. The people who assembled it you live in a barracks of the factories-reservations in China. Just look around. Most of the things that you use are created by slaves in the most direct sense of the word.
Mass Media enthusiastically write about electric vehicles, alternative sources of electricity, wind generators, solar panels. But it won’t talk about deadly corollary damage in the production of neodymium magnets for wind generators dangerous for ecology. Nobody tells You that the production of a single solar panel requires more energy than it will generate during its lifetime. Manufacture of alternative sources of “green” energy leads to massive pollution of the environment. The companies producing the lithium batteries companies are responsible for children living near mines in Peru and Bolivia. When you buy your first electric car, think about these children.
