The propagation of "fake news"

Notice the quotes; I'm passing along information, not starting a fight.

The editors of Wired, a pro-device bunch, have published much on this topic recently and seem worried.
According to the last ¶¶, Brazil is subject to this in part because of its history of class-ridden governments. With the rising of self-made absolute monarchs this may increase.
All of this, on just one country, and look how complex.
Disease is not global warming. Bloody vomit is real and immediate. ["the Mayans called it xekik, or 'blood vomit'"] When hypothetical Mr Breitbart watches his wife succumb he'll know the vaccine will be too late for him. Perhaps he'll know why.
At this point, Toni, Dafydd, Bill, James, Bob please leave the room ...
OK.
Luke 21 prophesies an increase in pestilences. 2Tim 3:1-5 prophesies an increase in badnesses, including some [lack of affect e.g.] that make self-made absolute monarchs worse and encourage fake news of this type. Now, if they became somehow connected ... Oh, wait. They're both about the last days ...
The oft-maligned religion I belong to has had accurate knowledge of these things for some time. Works for us.

My, my, you do ramble on...

Solomon once said "there is nothing new under the sun" and neither are plagues, earthquakes, wars, etc. Be sure to drop some water bottles into your foxhole in the back yard.

Christians won't need foxholes

or guns. Luke 21:28. We'll "stand up straight and lift up [our] heads."

Oh, do you mean invisibly, the way he left

["Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky?"], seeing him with our spiritual eyes of faith? Gal 5:16. Already have. Left invisibly; returned likewise.
He arrived in his prophesied and appointed kingship in 1918. Rev 5:12.
Since then his main task has been active oversight of the worldwide preaching work he commanded at Mt 28:19,20.

Visible departure and arrival

Acts chapter 1

Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

Revelantion chapter 1

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him,

Mark chapter 14

Again the high priest questioned Him, “Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?” “I am, said Jesus, “and you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.”

chapter 13

Then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And He will send out the angels to gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.

Matthew 26:64
"You have said it yourself," Jesus answered. "But I say to all of you, from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."

Daniel chapter 7
And behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him. 14"And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed.
