SAFE G: Empowering Resilient Communities


Mission. To empower local communities to design immediate and effective SAFE G solutions that implement optical fiber wired to the home and office. Local taxpayers and ratepayers are entitled to this alternative to wireless, because they have already paid for it. Please see: Irregulators v. FCC.

5G/AI/Internet of Things Juggernaut presents an imminent threat. The harms to our community’s physical and mental health, the local environment, violations of citizen’s rights to due process, property, and personal privacy are foreseeable and preventable. The threat is especially dangerous to our children, elderly people, those with special sensitivities, disabled persons with chronic illnesses, caregivers, and our economically disadvantaged and minority communities that have no escape in their homes or workplaces.

Remedy: Community Empowerment: An effective remedy begins with widespread education and training in a proven system of wise leadership, community organization, team building, and negotiation. With this purpose we have created a 5G Dojo to support local communities around the world that are facing similar challenges. The key is to share negotiation successes and practical experience, so these lessons can be immediately deployed within the network. Equally essential is to fortify community-wide resilience rapidly and effectively. (See: 5 Minutes toResilience)

Resilience and Viruses

We are only just becoming aware of the complex processes that enable viruses to become resilient to antiviral drugs.  Viruses are also opportunistic and can take advantage of impaired immunity (reduced resilience) from stress and anxiety to some illnesses such as influenza.

We are only just becoming aware of the complex processes that enable viruses to become resilient to antibiotics. Viruses are also opportunistic and can take advantage of impaired immunity (reduced resilience) from stress and anxiety to some illnesses such as influenza. But there is also a great upside. Viruses can potentiate resilience to drought in some forms of plants. And some viruses play a critical role in building immunity and resilience to pathogenic bacteria in the gut.
