The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

Dry Times

The drinking supply has rocket fuel in it. Less than one person regulates bottled water in the United States. Bottled water is not enough, synthetic chemical exposure happens simply by showering. Volatile pollutants enter through the skin. Water is now impossible to bathe in. Water causes itching and scratching.

About 40% of the stomach viruses, or flu's, come from water. Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics get into the water and are hurting us. 

Agriculture uses 70% of the water.
Industry 20%
People 10%

Agriculture grows plants with toxic chemicals requiring 5 to 10 times the water in order to dissolve the pesticides. We should not have industry, nor agriculture, anywhere on earth. It is not a good mix. Birth defects increase near agriculture, cancer rates double.

In some rivers the fish are becoming only females due to hormones put directly into the water by mankind. There are no males. Fish are storing dangerous pharmaceuticals like suicidal Prozac. Industrial waste is now found in human breast milk. A fetus is constantly drinking its ambiotic fluid.

There are no good solutions. These chemicals were designed first for warfare. The corporate world is immoral, all water is being treated as just another salable good, being taken advantage of by pollution. Water is the third largest industrial commodity, behind electricity, oil being the first.

Many great rivers in the world no longer flow into the sea, this is contemptible. Organic matter is totally trapped behind huge dams and rots rather than feeding the oceans. During the 20th century dams have displaced ten's of millions of people, destroying old ways of life which had been held for generations. Sacred graves are submerged. Just who is the State to encroach on lands?

Since ancient times water has been a public source, not owned by anyone. Water is a birthright, like air. Water is not for sale. Water is not to be confused with property, it is a life resource,  it should be illegal to so unnaturally contaminate it. We should conserve what is precious. Don't allow the evil government to takeover everything in this world.

Either we fight, or die. The future is at stake. Let's be a friend to the earth, instead of such an enemy. Let's not spoil our gifts.
