Covid-19: Hollywood’s Blueprint

Human Population Control.
Simply put, it is altering the rate of growth of the human population. This is primarily accomplished by limiting a population’s birth rate, mostly as a response to factors like overpopulation. Thus far, the two most widely used forms of population control have been contraception and abortion. While the former has been adopted in many a country, the latter is a hotly contested topic the world over.

10 Effective Ways to Control Population - Listontap


Though famine and war have in the past reduced human population unintentionally (WWI & WWII), they are both extreme lines few people in power want to straddle. With Earth’s population almost at the 8 billion mark, many would think the conversation to control the Earth’s ballooning population started only recently… and by “recently” I mean from three decades ago.

Far from it.

From Plato (427BC – 347BC) to Ibn Khaldun (1332AD – 1406AD), this discussion has been thrown around between eras, but where some of these older discussions mostly sought to find the optimum population density for city planning, recent talks, as championed by Hollywood, seeks to wipe out chunks of the world’s population so the rest can live more comfortably.

In 1968, a US biologist and environmentalist, Paul R. Ehrlich published a book that made a strong case for the adoption of stringent population control policies. In his book, The Population Bomb, Paul Ehrlich likened the human population to cancer; treating only the symptom of human population would grant temporary reprieve from the problem. If the root cause, the cancer, is not cut off – with brutal and heartless decisiveness – the world would meet a grim fate.

His solution to the problem? Compulsory birth regulation through sterilization. Staple foods, along with the water supply would be “poisoned” with sterilant, with the antidote carefully rationed to produce the desired family and population size.

As twisted as that might sound today, back then Paul Ehrlich’s book was so convincing, the US government bought into the idea, influencing its policies in the late 60’s, leading into the 70’s.

Crazy right?

However, after his book was published, the world’s population growth rate started a downward trend; from its 1968 peak of 2.09% to 1.09% in 2018. Make of that what you will.

On the other end of the spectrum, China’s approach to population control appeared to have been successful; at least according to the Chinese government officials. Introduced in 1980, the one-child policy was proposed to lessen the social and economic problems of China. Under this policy, couples were discouraged from having more than one child, with non-compliance often resulting in fines. Extreme cases, according to unofficial reports, cite forced abortions and sterilizations.

Though the government ended the program in 2016 (after operating for 35 years), with couples allowed two children, the Chinese government estimated around 400 million births were prevented during that period.

Achievement Unlocked.

Now, Hollywood has for the past decade (and then some) used its “big screen” platform to push interesting but specific themes in its movies; Human Population Control. Culling out significant portions of the population in order to ensure the survival of humanity and mother Earth.

“Natural resources are dwindling, the world is headed towards collapse, humans are doing their absolute best to kill our beautiful blue planet. What can we do about that?”

Does that sound familiar?

I just gave you the plot a lot of blockbuster movies in Hollywood have recycled often this past decade. From the hugely popular Avengers: Infinity War/Endgame, to the bland and rather anaemic Inferno, Hollywood has for the greater part of the just-ended decade been pushing movies that force viewers to consider overpopulation as a threat to humanity and our way of life.

The main villains from the aforementioned movies, Thanos and Bertrand Zobrist, share similar goals; sacrificing half of the world’s population in order to fix the world and/or bring balance.
As dark and inherently twisted these villains might seem, they execute their plans with unyielding conviction, believing themselves chosen for the “righteous crusade”.
Indeed, they are evil but they have accepted sometimes you need to crack more than a few eggs to make an omelette.

Thanos | Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki | Fandom
“You were going to bed hungry, scrounging for scraps. Your planet was on the brink of collapse. I’m the one who stopped that. You know what’s happened since then? The children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. It’s a paradise.” – Thanos


I have for the longest time held the belief that the higher ups in Hollywood just want to feed their blueprint of “extermination” to an individual or group of people crazy enough to follow through; to bring balance.

Why put out so many movies in that vein if you secretly don’t wish for it to happen?

When 11,323 people died from the Ebola epidemic of 2014, the devastation left in its wake was gut-wrenching and brutal; Lives taken, families shattered. Although a lot of conspiracy theorists believed the virus was reintroduced to “thin out” the African population, I think anyone following Hollywood’s plan would have favoured a global rollout.

Thank God that didn’t happen though. At least not with Ebola.

Fast-forward a few years however and we have a situation that could easily have been a Hollywood movie, if Contagion didn’t already exist.

Coronavirus - ISGLOBAL

Enter the CORONAVIRUS.

Since its discovery in Wuhan (China) back in December 2019, the virus has invaded virtually every country on Earth and has killed tens of thousands of people. Though not as deadly as Ebola, the Coronavirus has a tighter grip on the world right now.
The near-universal lockdown imposed across countries has all but frozen the world in place. Whiles this lockdown aims to flatten the curve and restrict the spread of the disease, something some struggle obeying, the world has been utilizing this time of human “inactivity” to detoxify itself.

The skies are clearer because there are less vehicles on the roads, less smoke-spewing factories in operation and generally less people burning stuff – especially in Africa and India.
These changes have invariably made the air cleaner in cities that observe the lockdown.

Waterbodies are cleaner and clearer now because there are less boats and ships churning up dirt in the water – though I cannot say the same for the rivers in Ghana suffering the effects of illegal gold mining. The reduced activity might provide some needed respite for the creatures within from overfishing.

With almost everyone indoors, the streets are freer now. If people do leave home, they can rest easy knowing they won’t be stuck in traffic, breathing in fumes or suffering through the constant car horns.

Though these changes don’t measure up to Hollywood’s standards, they illustrate the impact we’ve had on the planet. A lot of the movies advocating for stringent population control believe there are no alternate methods.

While the Coronavirus has dealt a heavy blow, the world’s response to fighting it has proven we can take care of ourselves and Earth at the same time. We kinda found the balance.
Too bad we needed a pandemic to see it… but as we wait for the cure and the inevitable economic fallout, we can at least take the good with the bad.

The Failures of A.M.A and the EPA

In September of 2015, a massive scandal hit the automotive industry that sent shockwaves around the world, but somehow, a great(er) portion of Africa felt nothing. The diesel versions of Volkswagen (VW) cars cheated emission tests by spewing out clean(er) test results… thus, fooling authorities into allowing these cars roam the streets as though they were indeed environmentally-friendly. It’s no secret that diesel vehicles have always produced more pollutants than their petrol counterparts.

The increase in the car population, and the need for more fuel-efficient cars, which diesel cars have down to a science, has pushed manufacturers to explore creative ways to beat the system, amid growing reports of a steady increase in global pollution. Making money and fulfilling a perceived need is, by and large, the reason companies exist… so who are we to judge when VW breaks some rules, right? Especially when other companies practically made the rule book.

 

Image result for vw emissions scandal

 

It turns out what VW did was a big No-No, so aside lawsuits and sanctions, VW had to recall all affected cars. This cost them billions of dollars and invariably, hurt their brand image as well.

So, whiles the rest of the world was reeling from this shock, and rightly so, countries in Africa (save for South Africa) could do nothing about it.
Days turned to weeks, and weeks into months, but the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (A.M.A) and VW dealerships in my country – Ghana – stayed mute about this serious environmental issue, which didn’t just affect Europe and America, but Africa too. Every single day I would see “defective” VW vehicles roaming the streets of Ghana and wonder if the drivers cared even a little about the environment they were killing.

But alas, why blame them?
They are just unwitting consumers driving around in cars that should have complied with every regulation… but don’t. I cannot in good conscience blame “innocent” consumers, but I will throw a lot of blame on the A.M.A, EPA and VW.

When a scandal that big hits, a press release is rolled out to all media platforms; the first phase of damage control. The local and international authorities then follow suit in order to assure the concerned public the matter has been flagged under “very important”.
Well, let’s assume the organizations in Ghana at the time of the VW Emissions scandal had more pressing issues to deal with, because when the scandal hit, we got nothing from them.

I guess the health and welfare of Africans does not matter as much as those in Europe and America.

VW, the mastermind behind the disaster, funny enough, can rest a little easy knowing that a lot of their “defective” cars in Ghana were not sold through their licensed dealerships, but shipped from different countries by individuals or unauthorized road-side dealerships.
Press VW hard enough and trust that lawyers would crawl out of the woodwork to pull out an incomprehensible clause that would compel VW to only deal with customers who bought cars through the authorized dealerships.
That’s how international conglomerates operate.

For A.M.A and EPA though, we cannot give them such a long leash… but to even think they would crack down on the VW scandal when it happened was incredibly naive on my part.
Why?
If A.M.A and EPA, after all these years can’t put a handle on the chimney-smoke-spewing cars polluting the air, what the heck can they do about a bunch of VW’s killing us slowly with invisible air?

Ever-present… ready to tag your uncompleted building in red paint.

 

From green to black smoke, one can’t go a day in Ghana without seeing all manner of vehicles sputtering out toxic smoke. As if making us wheeze ain’t enough, vehicular fumes contain a boatload of hazardous pollutants that have been identified and listed by… wait for it… the EPA. No! That isn’t the EPA in Ghana, but does that matter? Shouldn’t they all be as active and vigilant irrespective of location?
They have slowly adopted the Ghanaian mentality; it ain’t my problem if someone else can solve it.

So, how do these smokey cars pass through the Roadworthy test and come out with a seal of approval? Beats my mind.
But, according to Regulation 33 in the Road Traffic Offences Regulations (1974 LI 952),
No person shall drive a motor vehicle which emits exhaust fumes in such quantities
as to be a hazard or annoyance to road users or pedestrians.
There you have it; it’s actually very illegal to drive around town in a smokey vehicle, yet the police pay no mind, ever ready on the other hand to take off their authority for a measly Gh¢5 or less.

There are so many cars in Accra, and so much traffic as a result… forcing us to sit still and inhale the unholy concoction of chemicals these cars happily cough out for our enjoyment.
We risk lung cancer, headaches, runny eyes and other serious diseases if this issue is not tackled and/or resolved.

The A.M.A and EPA are effectively powerless against this and yet claim to defend our environment. How could they, when they can’t even shutdown a single factory endangering the lives of people living in the La Dadekotopon Municipality of the Greater Accra Region. Edisaw Company Ltd, the factory in question, has been oppressing the unlucky people living in close proximity with thick clouds of smoke. The EPA shut them down in February of 2018 only to have Edisaw spring up again two weeks later. This remarkable display of ineptitude has unsurprisingly, forced the residents affected by the manufacturing processes of Edisaw to sue the EPA and Municipal Assembly for failing – rather disastrously – at their jobs.

It is easy to lay down the rules but hard to put into practice, isn’t it?

 

I hope they win the lawsuit; too long have Ghanaians been content with mediocrity.
We’d rather talk about troops invading our country than fix the broken infrastructure every government in power promises to rectify.

The inter-connectivity of government agencies ensures that, when one arm fails, the rest will all fall short.

But Wait! Ghanaians burn rubbish all the time, so what’s new right?
AH! God Bless Ghana.

If there isn’t a fundamental change in how we deal with these half-competent entities, they will always chop our monies, hide in expensive houses and fail us every single time.

Priado Wealth Alliance: HelpGhana’s Legacy!

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/VvNIaXgpGG4/maxresdefault.jpg

Technology is now the criminals best friend; there’s now less effort in stealing a lot of money. When done right though, clueless people practically throw their hard-earned money at criminals.

How criminals utilize this power nestled within technology determines how smart or “unsmart” (I can’t say stupid) they are. Few criminals have shown themselves smart enough, but others are just plain dumb.
But then, the “inbetweeners” enjoy the spoils of decaying foundations and hope for the best.
The merry men at HelpGhana blazed the trail Priado Wealth Alliance carefully walk on now…however, no matter how professional a website looks or how sweet an offer appears, the truth will out.

The truth? Priado Wealth Alliance is the newest member on the Let-Us-Scam-Ghanaians campaign: stealing our monies GH¢30 at a time.

Following HelpGhana’s terrible example, Priado is built on a system that requires every new member pay out GH¢30, which ultimately goes to the referrer…with these new members referring new people to the platform so they can all get a piece of the action (a ponzi scheme).
Rinse and repeat until the whole world loses GH¢30

The fact remains, ponzi schemes don’t work unless somebody loses. Those at the bottom of the scheme are essentially defrauded by those on top. It’s a mathematical fact that no matter how many people join the scheme, 88 percent of the members will be on the bottom level and will lose their money.
The scheme revolves around the process of paying old investors with the money you get from new investors. The central method remains the same. All one has to do is hook a few investors who are willing to get in early on a once-in-a-lifetime business venture. The details of the investment don’t matter too much. What suckers people in is the promise of fantastic returns on investments. (Source: How Stuff Works)

After a lengthy conversation with a self-appointed “spokesperson” for Priado Wealth Alliance, it was obvious he didn’t know what he had gotten himself into. His description of the Priado’s business model is a textbook definition for a Ponzi scheme, but he just can’t understand why it’s illegal. That is a problem.

I have scoured the entirety of the Priado website in hopes of finding how the company generates wealth for it’s clients, wondering how they manage to stay afloat and be relevant when they have no clear-cut plan on making money. There is no such mention of that plan…but, they do encourage their members to bring in more “affiliates”. These affiliates come forward with their money, which is given to “older” members on the platform.

Priado is not a bank or a financial institution, but they promise members a whopping GH¢ 699, 940 for the initial deposit of GH¢30. Of course you’d have to jump through some hoops first but in the end, no legal company has what it takes to honor that promise.
What? Are they plucking out money from trees?

The “clueless” people in this venture consider this model as “networking”, but if the money is not generated by Priado but by the new recruits and then redistributed to the members, what happens when these members spend their “hard-earned” money but can’t convert new members?

There are no official social media pages for Priado, just a lot of obscure scam-looking pages with no obvious ties to the company…save for text-heavy low-res images with the Priado logo plastered all over. For a company that is allegedly legal, it does little to differentiate it’s business model from a Ponzi scheme.

What breaks my heart? My fellow Ghanaians still fall to this scam. When a new company crawls out of the woodwork with a get-rich-in-no-time offer, 9 times out of 10, that offer is most probably false and illegal.
But alas, the life of opulence blinds people to the red flags these preposterous offers raise.
Until people change from such childish fantasies, I fear we will always fall to such trickery.

Priado Wealth Alliance, you are on the radar now.

Demolish HelpGhana!

What if I told you that the smartest people in this world don’t know everything. Even the greatest minds belonging to fictional characters – Batman, Sherlock Holmes and Sheldon Cooper – falter when they are tested in areas beyond their knowledge. Artificial intelligence doesn’t fare any better, because, in the end it was put together by “insufficient” people – but God help us when a fully realized AI is built.

The simple truth to what I’m trying to say is, no single person on earth knows everything.
If the people who built spaceships and calculate the speed of black holes don’t know everything, that doesn’t speak well for the average Joe like myself.
So, in times of self-doubt, I reach out to friends who are more “enlightened”.

A couple of months ago a friend sent in a too-good-to-be-true kind of offer. This offer, made by faux-altruist group, HelpGhana, promised Ghanaians millions of Cedis if they embedded themselves into the group. I liked what they were selling but I knew something was wrong, so, in my I-need-a-smarter-friend moment, I contacted an investor.

Long story short, he confirmed my suspicions; the offer was fraudulent.
Most pyramids schemes are.

Due to my good nature, I reached out to a lot of my friends who were considering the devils deal – and sold them off it – but that wasn’t cutting it.
So, in order to save everybody from the gut-wrenching heartache of losing “just” Gh¢10 ($3) to HelpGhana’s unethical pyramid scheme, I reported the group to a lawyer friend who promised to throw a Kantanka-branded bomb into their “operational headquarters”.

My personality rarely welcomes optimism, so after a while I was compelled to go looking for the smoldering remains of a fallen pyramid. My faith in my lawyer friend wasn’t misplaced…I just don’t trust Kantanka products.

Though HelpGhana’s activities on all platforms had crawled to virtual halt, it wasn’t entirely indicative of a dead enterprise. The higher-ups of any pyramid scheme convert as many people as possible to their cause, then sit back and enjoy the spoils of their clueless followers who keep recruiting more people;
A demonic” equivalent of a domino effect.

Continuing with promotions at this point would be unnecessary. Thus, not seeing anything in the way of advertising does not connote the destruction of HelpGhana…but an existence that has forgone the need to remain public. If that is their current state of being, then people are still losing money.

I saved a few of my close friends when HelpGhana first came to light, but now Ghana calls for my attention.
The simple and ugly truth is, pyramid schemes by nature are unsustainable; as more people are recruited, finding the next person to sway to the cause becomes nigh impossible. At this point, recruits late to the party are unable to profit since all money is funneled to the top. Before anyone catches on though, the higher-ups of this illegal venture would have made their money and Houdini’d themselves out of existence.

Like all evil and self-serving companies out there, HelpGhana offered Ghanaians a promise of a better life by choosing a proven system that allegedly rakes in a lot of money. It seemed simple enough, so scores of Ghanaians bought into the idea hook, line and sinker.

From my borrowed math above, if this vile venture started with one individual recruiting two people with each one recruiting two people, and so on, we’d exceed the population of Ghana in just 25 levels.

What do we do then?
Well, I guess West African countries are pretty “tight”, so why not invite them to the lose-your-Gh¢10 party.

People of Ghana, let me be your “smart” friend; if you’ve been tempted and you’ve made it this far in my post, I’d love to believe you’d save your small money.

If you fell victim though, please be wary of offers that sound way too good to be true.
Be the cautious Roadrunner and not the ostrich.

And…to the masterminds behind HelpGhana, I hope you all go to jail.
No! I won’t mince words.
You planned to steal money. You knew it was illegal…but carried it out anyway.
God forgive you evil lot.

The Creative Struggle

A killer intro; a mandatory aspect of any great literary piece.

That’s what I aim for, but sometimes I can go through loads of intros before I settle on “the one”.
Other times I just give up and move on to other distractions…ever hoping for a bulb to light up amid the chaos.

Deciding on what to write isn’t the problem, but creating that perfect intro cripples my creative spunk. It is the “easiest” to put together but the hardest to craft and master.

I am not a perfectionist…but I do try my best.

It is indeed gut-wrenching to find readers skip past the intro that kept you up many a sleepless night. This is my umpteenth attempt at this intro, but who is counting, right?

I break my squishy brain for the “perfect intro” and no one reads it.

SIGH!

My creative foibles aside, this little predicament raises a concern that haunts creatives the world over: the infamous “Creative Block”.

If you find yourself in the creative sphere – writers, musicians, performers, artists –  then you know how far-reaching this “block” really is.

It is a deep pit of despair from which only the determined can escape…and mind you, the act (of escaping) may last for days, weeks, months or even years.

When you lose your muse, you better put on the best show of your life to win her back, or in the very least, break down every door known to man until she’s nestled safely in your arms once again.

Being creative isn’t the cakewalk some claim. Sure, it might come easy to some but the truth hits hard when you realize even the best of the best plunge headfirst into the “block”.

It comes with the territory and quite normal to wander its labyrinthine maze on occasion.
Heck! It took me quite a while to put this post together, so yeah…it is a global epidemic.

For some though, getting out of the “block” can be as easy as staring at a blank page for 3 straight days…or as daunting as seeking inspiration from someone else’s works.
Inspiration does works: I do it often, although my case requires I stare at random images till the lazy brain hamsters start showing their worth – they are quite the lazy lot.

But where does “getting inspiration” end and “stealing’ begin?

A creative mind is oft lauded and appreciated, even when most don’t know the hardships (and headaches) such a mind endures. We love the creative people who have made an enviable living out of selling the crazy and innovative ideas scurrying around in their heads…and some of us hope to someday walk beside them, or better yet, ahead of them.

But how can we push boundaries and break down restrictive molds if we forgo our ability to think and glaringly steal ideas?

People are fierce at stealing ideas, but for today’s lesson we will focus on Ghana and her many green-eyed citizens. I know you’d all love to see me point just one finger at Kofas (a Ghanaian movie director) and watch him run into hiding again, but that won’t be fair to him.

The sad truth? This sin of intellectual thievery goes beyond Kofas’ blunder; it is a canker in Ghana’s creative sphere that just won’t die (T1000).
Ghana’s creative industry is actually not as competitive as those in western countries, but the breakneck speeds at which content – videos, music and pictures – is pushed to the public opens up a very big avenue to steal intellectual properties with us none-the-wiser.

Local production houses steal entire movies – foreign and local – and then repackage them as new.
In an industry where a single production house can shoot 4 full movies in a week with barely any script, we should not be surprised if new movies recycle plot from old movies.
Heck! Even Hollywood is doing that…so why not Ghana.

That much content in such short a span negates the need for brainwork for some creative individuals in Ghana. A few put up a valiant effort, but like moths to a flame, they embrace the system: recycle and steal…because no one cares.

From the Shadows

When Kofas and his merry band of actors announced John & John, a movie that bears an uncanny resemblance to Skeem, I doubt they were ready for the backlash that was to follow.

All things considered though, Kofas’ “remake” of Skeem could have gone unnoticed if both movies had been obscure:
BUT NOPE! They were as high-profile as they come, with Skeem benefiting from the publicity and media coverage that comes from being critically acclaimed.

John & John, a blatant and unrepentant copy of Skeem could have been a remarkable hit in Ghana, if Kofas’ folly had not reared its head.

He has since gone into hiding, but this blight on his record invariably calls his prior endeavors into question…and that is a shadow I fear he might never pull away from.

I would like to think this issue would educate the creative public in Ghana about intellectual thievery…but I fear I might be asking for too much, considering the first presidential speech from President Nana Akufo-Addo lifted passages from the speeches of former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

What can I say? It’s in our blood.

 

NB: Go here for a surprise.

Starting Over…

Hi! It is a new year again (for a full month now) and after a very unremarkable 2016 – if you don’t count the elections – I’m somewhat suspicious of this year. I had big plans I’d have loved to see grow in 2016 but my feet moved way too slow (ask Ransford).

Like all attempted failures in a person’s life, we have to at least accept a smidgen of that blame; we blame life (and others) too often.
I am guilty of treading along that particular path – avoiding the blame for my life choices and shirking the responsibilities that come along with it.

I cannot say I had an easy childhood…but it wasn’t hard either.
The honest truth? My temperament and outlook on life has pretty much bestowed upon me a laissez-faire approach to how I live life. I have gotten by quite fine but it is time I got more hands-on with my life and the decisions that happen therein.

Trust me, this year would like nothing more than to copy and paste the ole boring tripe of 2016, but I do believe we owe it to ourselves to walk down a different path.

reset

Winding the clock down to zero.

So then, what have I planned for myself this year? The sad reality is, my plans for this year mirrors that of the infamous 2016…but this time around I want more money and a greater life-purpose.

I can’t say I have it all figured out, but at least I know I can’t stay in this rut any longer.

Pray with me and let’s make a great big difference this year.

 

PS: Good News; This year won’t be as boring…only because I’m expecting an Xbox 360 to replace my non-existent love-life.
*sigh*…This is going to be good.
