  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Scientists have warned of a mystery decline in the nation’s beetles, with three quarters of the most common species recording declines in numbers, with several falling to “endangered” levels.

They didn't say anything about pesticides.  Usually that it is biggest cause of insects being in decline is it not?

tut tut, they are not going to admit it is  their  inventions that are wiping out some of the insects.
It did not take rocket scientists to find this out, years ago it was mentioned by farmers and people living in rural areas that the pesticides were having a dramatic effect on the insects, some mutated and some are slowly dying out, like the beetle.
the crops which have been sprayed with pesticides could quite easily have affected humans, but no doubt the scientists are not going to admit to this one too.

Beatles? Well there's only two left now anyway, aren't there?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

We still have Ringo and Paul. Well, Paul's double, at least.

Aha, another prophecy from a Beatles cover.

Yes, there's a big difference between the Beatles and beetles.  Might want to fix that topic heading.
