I practice investigative journalism as a way of living. This includes intensive discussions with humanity through all the means available to me in this modern day and age.
The internet facilitates this to a considerable extent. This is because there are email communications, smartphones, social media, and private letters that can be exchanged with all important people holding pivotal positions in society.
It has served me well to protect myself from evil components of Nature that seek to disrupt my way of life as a human being.
