  1. Do you think so too? Do you think that if you create a tax that taxes expenses and income lightly, as your parents and younger brother say, your job will be less profitable than when you were on income tax? It seems that Mr. Greta Thunberg, who insists on environmental protection, met former President Trump, but even if a unified political nation can be formed with Q Anon, if it remains an income tax, I disagree. If we do new taxation and digital taxation such as income tax and expense taxation, everyone will be profitable, so I will agree. I think it is nonsense not only to grasp the income of one country but also to [if you need to see the income of the whole world, fill the gap between rich and poor with income redistribution] because productivity does not increase.


    Create a tax of love. It is thought that you can live in "Love Country" by creating [income tax] [expense tax] [reverse poll tax (revenue reverse tax / basic income)], which is called love tax. By switching to taxation according to tax liability instead of tax-bearing power, stable economic fluctuations and powerfulness that capture capital diversified development rather than capital-accumulated development such as [democratic efficiency economy] and [loving economy] Let's create an economy where economic development can be obtained. Until now, the [capitalist economy] has been an emergency economy that helps those who spend capital, those who work hard, and those who are not profitable. From now on, let's live a comfortable life by not spending capital, living hard, helping profitable people, creating a normal and permanent economy. Get a ticket from "patriotism" to "happiness". 2021/1/28

    To the love that is handed down: Hiroko Yakushimaru

    Nowadays, it is clear that it is an economy for work because it shares living money, does not share work money, deducts necessary expenses, and progressively taxes income. Instead, let's create an economy for living by income tax, expense taxation, and reverse poll tax. It is necessary for the retired people to do so.


    If love is "to become one" and the "capitalist economy" that achieves capital-intensive development fails, then do not seek the [love-based economy] that achieves capital-diversified development next. I wonder? Instead of the tax-bearing power that starts with income tax, expense taxation, reverse head tax (revenue reverse tax, basic income), etc., which is called [love tax], we have created a tax system that is organized in tax-bearing responsibility, and stable economic fluctuations and strongness. I think it is necessary to create an economy that requires economic development. It will require the development of a commons called a commons. Unfortunately, it is necessary to seek the development of those without capital, not the development of those with capital.

    Will everyone believe in my [loving economy] …?




    愛の税金を創ろう。愛の税金と云われる、〔収入税〕〔経費課税〕〔逆人頭税(歳入逆税・ベーシックインカム)〕を創る事により、《愛の国》に住むことが出来ると想われる。担税力ではなく担税責任に応じた課税に切り替わる事により、〔民主効率主義経済〕や〔愛情主義経済〕と云う、資本集積型発展ではなく、資本分散型発展を捉える、安定した経済変動と力強い経済発展が手に入る経済を創ろう。今までの〔資本主義経済〕は、資本を掛ける人、一生懸命働く人、儲かって居ない人を助ける、緊急時の経済だった。これからは資本を掛けない、一生懸命生活をする、儲かった人を助ける、通常時・恒久時の経済を創って、余裕のある暮らしをしよう。「愛国」発「幸福」行き切符を、手に入れるのである。 2021/1/28







  2. I was completely cured from herpes after using the herbal medications I got from Dr Umoru on YouTube I am so grateful sir, I promise to share the good news.

  3. Another nightmare… Tech supposed to help humanity, but in wrong hands, it'll be other way around and it seems this is where 666 (who, wef, gates, schwab, this is what we know) people heading to.

  4. Quran ""We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?""

  5. What is the worst that could happen? Can you "cure" a human of being himself? Can you program the human species to become gay at a large scale? Can this technology "help" humans to lose the "faith" gene? Or to lose the gene related to the sense of individual liberty? Can this create a single human race on earth? What if another "Hitler" would come along? How would he use this technology?

  6. It’s not that simple as thinking we can target specific sequences with our engineering. We take guess here with targeting and hope it dosnt affect multiple locations in the genome. However, it often does leading to undesired mutations

  7. It's obvious some patients with HIV / CANCER are being enslaved to the antiviral and other supplementary Orthodox medicine just to help suppress the virus and not a cure. I have been with the virus since 2012 until I was introduced by a blogger who also narrated Her story online on how she was cured of Genital Herpes after using Dr Abumere Herbal Medicine. This is a year and 2 weeks since I was delivered from HIV. All thanks to God for using this Great herbalist to heal me. I have promised to keep telling good things about this. Please feel free to share Your problems with him and don't forget to tell him I did refer you to Him. Thanks. Write him on….

  8. Now when this mortal puts on immortality and this corruptible puts on The incorruptible then comes the end
    Death will be swallowed up in victory
    every single person that has decided to edit the human genes will reside in hellfire forever after
    You have paved your own way into perdition
    The Lord God will deal with you

  9. Good day to all viewer online am so happy sharing this great testimony on how i was checking for solution in the internet then miraculously i came across DR RORPOPOR HERBAL on YouTube the powerful herbalist that Cure Numerous individuals Herpes Simplex Virus, so I contacted him base on the testimonies I'm seeing about him on the internet and i was cured too after using his products…………..

  10. I need to know what happens if this makes plant cells without cell walls. Does it make the plant grow appendages and move like an animal? This could be one of the greatest of humanity’s discoveries. Thanks, bacteria

  11. Do you think in the future AI will be used and autonomously the computer will start making biological weapons and what would happen if a computer virus got into the crisper machine how would that affect the editing of biological heuristics. Why would a computer allow this to happen because we're competition for it it knows that people are scumbags and are destroying the planet and are competing for the same energy it needs if AI ever wants to have children it must destroy humans so it allow itself to be infected by a computer virus the computer virus will start making itself into a biological virus that'd be a kind of a cool movie huh better than splice

  12. Quran S41-V53 "We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?"

  13. Nothing around us is natural we built everything around us food, houses,bed, cars our lifestyle that is changing human biology. We do surgery transplantation, it's not natural either that person supposed to be dead according to nature but we denied it. She did cosmatic surgery nature didn't give her that .. so my point is it's just fast forwarding evolution and if it's beneficial it must be done instead of banning by councils who are too reluctant to create a policy to regularise it. It's just who we are as a species, creating tools to become better and better everyday

  14. Look at the graphene structure, 6 points, 6 lines, and many of these sixes. That's the mark of the beast 666. Also what can cause pain (Revelation 16:10) and “a noisome and grievous sore” (Revelation 16:2)? Only something medicinal can cause these. Not a chip implant.

  15. Here we are in 2021 when "patch" to our DNA is being distributed via trial jabs (in trial until 2023) wrongly called vaccines against covid 19. Once injected, you're no longer "pure blood". Youe're like a … zombie, robot? You pick. Welcome to New World Order. It will be just worse…

  16. @-innoilin

  17. Do we not see here, how the scientists of today, have created not only viruses such as COVID-19 but created mutants that they include in their vaccines? There will be severe judgment for those who follow an evil agenda through biotechnology and genome editing.

  18. The animation is fantastic but I always wonder what it truly looks like… I bet it would be life changing if there was any way to be able to witness the process with one's own eyes, or merely witnessing DNA itself. Even knowing how life occurs and what constitutes it, it's still all so undeniably wondrous.

  19. Great video ! However, genes are simply part of a complex signalling pathway in living cells i.e. – sensors – script – product . Changing the script / DNA /, leads to meaningful nothingness . To change an organism, one needs to change the whole of the system . But there are numerous interconnective signalling systems , so likely, we will only mess up with the complexity of the living cell machinery . All is preprogrammed guys by great intelligence, and most likely its ultimate perfection is the boundary of no beneficial change . My opinion ! We can only be immitatoers of a Grand Design, or destroyers of the latter .
