WITNESS: The Sound of Silenced Science
Standout media that helps to spread a ‘vital message’, and is almost impossible to silence … deserves/must be shared …
By: Roger Landry (TLB)
I have spent going on fifteen years now trying my best to bring the truth, or at least other ways of looking at the truth to as many people as possible. Some times I have succeed brilliantly, and others failed miserably. Today the TLBProject is comprised of many global websites and media forums which all strive towards the same goal … all originating from that dream I had said fifteen years ago.
But every once in a while something appears on my radar that helps to present and fortify the message. Something so focused and appropriate that not to use or present it would be detrimental to TLBProject’s stated mission. So I grab that football and run with it in hopes of heading tyranny off at the pass!
One such piece of highly pertinent and valuable media is a song originally written by Paul Simon, and performed by Simon & Garfunkel – “The Sound of Silence,” originally “The Sounds of Silence.” This is a song that was released when I was about ten years old and barely had any interest in music, never mind the deep and altruistic lyrics.
It wasn’t until almost six decades later when I was launching a new show on Republic Broadcasting Network, called TLBTalk Radio, that this song resurfaced in my mind, and became the shows theme song. Now listening to the words brings chills and wonder at the crystal ball Paul Simon absolutely had to posses. The lyrics of this song are so descriptive of society today, both its faults and their ramifications. Since I was never a real fan of the Simon & Garfunkel sound, my version of choice has become the very powerful Disturbed version which I present below:
Lyrics: Hello, darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence
Fools, said I, You do not know
Silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence
And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sound
The Sound of Silenced Science

Now we jump to another arena … another creation also based on this song, and in logical fashion the lyrics, of this powerful classic. Does it surprise me that this is the platform chosen to present this recent and vital message … not in the least. Even though my first reaction was a subdued chuckle and a smile, this may be a big part of the reason it proceeded to impressed me with the force of a brick upside the head.
A message is always many times more powerful if presented across multiple sensory paths such as sight and sound … This presentation, as with the one above, serves to validate that concept brilliantly. Today not just America, but most of humanity suffer the biggest confrontation with those who would play God with us we have ever experienced. This modified version of a powerful classic once again puts that reality in your face. Again I suggest you listen to the song and read the lyrics.

Hello Darkest MSM,
I’ve come to face you once again,
Because the horrors steadily streaming,
Grew seeds of fear while I was sleeping,
And the nightmares you planted in my brain,
When you silenced science.
In quarantine I walked alone
Down the halls of my own home
In the halo of a zoom call
I wore a mask ‘cause I was in their thrall
Then my mind was stabbed with a thought of its own free will
I tried until
I understood the science
And on the evening news I saw
Ten million people, maybe more
People jabbing without thinking
People aping without listening
People spewing hate that famous voices shared
But no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence
“Fools” said I, “You do not know
That silence like a cancer grows
Learn the science that it might teach you
Do the math that it might reach you”
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of pseudo-science
And the people bowed and prayed
To the CoVid god they made
And the Science shouted its warning
In the findings that it was forming
And I found that
The words of the prophets are written in Substack mail
and Twitter jail,
and echo against … the silence.
As is easily understandable, even to the most casual of observers … this song, the original song, carries a powerful message regardless of what you intend that message to be. This is huge praise for a song originally published almost six decades ago. And how many more serious to vital messages will it bring forward in the future … God only knows, but I will be watching and listening !!

Welcome to the TLB Project Neighborhood
Stay tuned to …
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
