Once again our Israeli correspondent MC does battle with the Narrative of the Great Pandemic of 2020.
Sacrificing Liberty for Fear
Bolshevik Communism was supposed to take over the world. The Third Reich was also to be a worldwide movement. So what is ‘Globalism’ but a reincarnation of both at the expense of our liberty?
Men rise to power, and then the ‘power’ takes over. They see themselves as gods, having a vision of world betterment, creating ‘new men’ to follow their doctrines and their beliefs, or to die in their dissidence.
There has been much talk of the mRNA vaccines being a mass elimination event. Although they are probably not, it has demonstrated how easy it is now to use fear to get people to voluntarily submit to be injected with strange experimental substances, to willingly sacrifice their hard won freedom of choice for an insubstantial but highly propagandized fear.
First a word on Spanish Flu. SF is the benchmark for ‘pandemics’, but like the plagues and black deaths before it, we know very little about it except that the described symptoms match those of Reye’s Syndrome (not influenza).
The existence of the first viruses was confirmed in the 1930s with the advent of the electron microscope, but there has been a tendency to equate all undefined illness with ‘viruses’ ever since. One can read about this in the Japanese ‘enteroviroform’ (SMON) issue of the 1960’s. Here is a 1974 paper where scientists are still looking for a ‘virus’ causing SMON.
It is assumed that the Spanish Flu came back with the soldiers from the WW1 trenches, but there is an alternative explanation as well (note: aspirin is acetyl salicylic acid):
The high case-fatality rate — especially among young adults — during the 1918-1919 influenza pandemic is incompletely understood. Although late deaths showed bacterial pneumonia, early deaths exhibited extremely “wet,” sometimes hemorrhagic lungs. The hypothesis presented herein is that aspirin contributed to the incidence and severity of viral pathology, bacterial infection, and death, because physicians of the day were unaware that the regimens (8.0-31.2 g per day) produce levels associated with hyperventilation and pulmonary edema in 33% and 3% of recipients, respectively. Recently, pulmonary edema was found at autopsy in 46% of 26 salicylate-intoxicated adults. Experimentally, salicylates increase lung fluid and protein levels and impair mucociliary clearance. In 1918, the US Surgeon General, the US Navy, and the Journal of the American Medical Association recommended use of aspirin just before the October death spike. If these recommendations were followed, and if pulmonary edema occurred in 3% of persons, a significant proportion of the deaths may be attributable to aspirin.
Given that our obsession with viral pandemics is centred upon the assumption that Spanish Flu and its extraordinary death rate amongst young people was actually a viral pandemic rather than an iatrogenic accident, it is incumbent upon us to understand what is known of the event, and understand as well the many unanswered questions that still exist a hundred or so years later. I suggest reading the whole article as it throws some light on modern pandemic planning, and the assumed narrative of the ‘killer virus’ that is behind the great 2020 plandemic.
Covid-19 may well be new, and may well be the result of careless handling of bio-warfare pathogens, but its effects were minimal except amongst those compromised by age and chronic disease. It was no worse than the ‘Asian flu’ of 1957 that I can just about remember (extra school holidays).
What is new about Corona was the fanning of the flames of fear by highly paid and connected public servants and the ultra-rich, probably for their own benefit but basted with a liberal virtue-signal of supposed philanthropy. Is Fauci a hero or a cheat?
World domination has long been a theme amongst those people that believe that they have the answers to the ills of the world. “If only I had control, none of this would have happened,” and “if you want to make an omelette you have to break eggs.”
In essence, for the greater good of all, some (old ladies in nursing homes?) have to die.
Thou shalt not (kill) murder says Mosaic Law. But who cares about Mosaic Law anymore…?
If the ends justify the means (and for the greater good) then just maybe, in our opinion, mass murder is justified after all. Most “world domination” regimes single out one group for extermination. Marx did it, Stalin did it, Hitler did it, and others are still doing it.
The wokistas have singled out white Christians as their favourite cause of all the world’s ills, and if they are allowed to continue to pursue their utopian dreams of a new ‘coffee-coloured’ man, then unspeakable harm may well befall many otherwise innocent people.
We are in the throes of a “bread and circuses” revolution, but the bread is so tasty and the circuses so entertaining that we are content to wallow in the slime of the bleachers. It is no longer the Biden administration, but the Biden-Harris administration. But Kamala must wait until the halfway point to take over; she then gets to rule for ten years, two and a half terms. So the historic art form of propping up an ailing POTUS must therefore be rediscovered — FDR and his polio, Woodrow-Wilson and his stroke…
Is this a phenomenon limited to Democrats? Like hiding a history of political racism and Fascism behind the shouting of moralistic accusations of the same type at the enemy, innocent or not.
All the while lies and deceptions are rife, and dissent is squashed and exiled to the extremes of the mainstream, so that those who can be fooled most of the time just will not see ‘it’ coming.
Sorry, folks, the Age of Enlightenment is coming to a messy end. The wokist religion is rapidly precipitating us back into an age of superstition and boogaloo, an age where pigs are hanged for
The sojourn of the “Witchfinder General” in the UK was bloody and cruel, and it was worse in Europe. It wiped out the healers and their herbal artistry, and put medicine into the hands of the barbers, their razors and their cash boxes. The ‘health’ industry has never recovered.
The Guam episode of the “Victory at Sea” series (episode 17) starts with a propaganda hit and pictures of young South Seas islanders benefiting from US benevolence in the form of vaccines, etc.
We grew up with the idea of vaccines being the answer to every medical problem. An idea that was purposefully planted by propaganda. I can remember the polio panic, and queueing up in a doctor’s garage to receive the ineffective and dangerous Salk vaccine in 1955/6. This was the first injection I had ever had, administered from a huge multiple use needle, and it hurt like hell.
There was much uncertainty about polio and its causes:
Sixteen new cases of the paralyzing infection poliomyelitis were recorded in Winnebago County, Illinois, on Thursday, August 9, 1945. The cases brought the county’s total to sixty-two since the beginning of July, not enough to constitute an official epidemic, local papers reported, but a “flare-up” serious enough to justify emergency measures. Soldiers stationed in nearby Camp Grant were already barred from entering the area, and picnics, dances, and all festivals had already been canceled. At a meeting the next day in Rockford, the county seat, Health Commissioner N. O. Gunderson announced that the city was going to try something new. The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (NFIP) — the nation’s large and powerful polio-fighting philanthropy — was “rushing three specially equipped trucks and three pumps to the Rockford area” to coat the city with DDT, the new war-developed pesticide. It would be “the first time,” said Gunderson, “that the powerful insecticide would be used to combat poliomyelitis.
Americans had become by the 1940s, the decade of DDT’s debut: with once significant sources of death and disability — including tuberculosis, cholera, diphtheria, and malaria — in marked decline or at historic lows, this generation “was arguably the healthiest population in the nation’s history.” Only polio remained an “unexplained horror” (alongside cancer, also on the rise). In David Oshinky’s work on polio, DDT makes two brief appearances: first, as one of many tools employed in desperation against a 1949 outbreak in San Angelo, Texas, and again a few chapters (and three years) later, as a suspect in polio’s spread, given its environmental ubiquity. This contrast — between DDT as a possible solution to and possible cause of polio — paired with polio’s reputation as the last disease of a bygone era, captures how the two’s shared history points to an important moment of transition in both public health and etiologies of disease. This essay explores this shared history not only to examine the tensions at play in this transition, but also to offer deeper understanding of the assessment of postwar chemical risks in the pursuit of public health.
In the summer and fall of 1946, DDT was thus sprayed as a means of restoring social order to American life, by “sanitizing” the very gathering places that had been shuttered and depopulated by polio fears. Colorado’s state fair organizers, “spurred by the polio scare,” widely publicized the fact that the fairgrounds had been generously sprayed by DDT, and that the fair was thus safe to attend.
The cited essay on polio and DDT has amazing parallels to the current medical panic; the whole essay is worth reading. But after the DDT fogging came the infamous Salk vaccine, Cutter and SV40 contamination.
They even had to change the name of polio to make the vaccine seem effective.
Whilst vaccines may be effective, they do not appear to be safe; but Big Pharma goes to extremes to hide this data ‘for the greater good’ — making it their decision, not yours (only the liability is yours).
So behind every doctor lurks a corporate monster bending the rules for its own benefit. Hiding behind the fuss created by accusations of ‘Quackery’ and ‘Conspiracy Theory’.
But what happens when the quacks are efficacious, and the conspiracies are true?
Well, that’s where cancel culture comes in. If banning and censorship are enforced, truth becomes irrelevant. So the Washington Pravda and the New York Izvestia along with the CNN Beobachter pump out spin and fakery without ever needing to stop and consider what they are really doing.
The New York Pravda famously applauded Stalin for the Holodomor, and somehow still retained credibility. Now it is even more exposed. But it can hide behind the unintended consequences of the Sullivan Act — the right of the people to know what the media wants them to know (the truth be
damned dumbed) — and pretend that it stands for the greater good.
But, at this moment, what difference does it make? Who even cares? Might is right; mighty ‘truth’ is de facto ‘truth’, for in a tyranny truth is whatever the mightiest deem it to be, like it or die.
Thus the real battle is over intellectual bigotry. The Left claims moral ascendancy, that they KNOW best. But this is not moral, it is amoral; it is intellectual bigotry and is every bit as bad as any other kind of bigotry, maybe even worse, because these bigots seek to rule, to oppress, to create a ‘new man’ to slave for them, to redefine the hewers of wood and carriers of water by their skin colour just when we all thought that we had left that behind us.
They believe that because they consider themselves intellectually and morally superior, they have the right to thrust their (political) religion down everybody else’s throats.
What really is the difference between the Islamic concept of Jihad, and rampant wokism? Not much; they are both political religions of hate and death whose adherents cannot abide any form of doubt or dissent.
Most people are happy to have decisions made on their behalf; some are not. But most people are also capable of making those decisions for themselves. It is here that political Left and political Right differ: the Left wants an elite making ‘one size fits all decisions’ for their
slaves followers; the Right requires that people take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
What it all comes down to is: Are we prepared to let people starve? If so, who, and by what criteria?
Does a working-age adult deserve welfare because he or she is too lazy to earn a living?
Historically, socialism has always been quite prepared to use food and welfare as a weapon to control the populace. However, conservatism requires that people provide for themselves, that all people should be prepared to pay their way, or take the consequences.
Life is not fair. Life is not equal, and no political regime is ever going to create a utopia no matter how much they legislate and coerce. Human nature being what it is, there will always be corruption. The moment one creates a welfare system, it will be abused. The best cure for starvation is a prosperous, low-tax economy where the labourer is worthy of his hire (and gets to keep his wages, too).
“From each according to ability, to each according to need” just does not work. Especially when ‘ability’ is deemed to be a function of skin colour (or social class). History shows us that the straight white male is a powerhouse of innovation and tolerance, willing to share his riches with all who want to participate. Slavery was/is wrong, but it took the lives of many straight white males to remove it from society, and in the case of the UK, fighting black men and Muslims to achieve it. The US Marines, too, did their share of this work on the ‘shores of Tripoli’.
Would the descendants of a real Pudd’nhead Wilson be amongst those to get restitution? Or would his white skin exclude him?
Liberty is something very precious. We should be very careful about giving up liberty for fear of something. The Islamic Jihad continues despite the Patriot Act. Viral illness will not go away despite vaccines, facemasks and lockdowns. The real enemy of liberty is greed, and rampant politicians who have forgotten (or just don’t care about) their oaths of office, or care more about lining their pockets (or those of their close family members).
To swear upon a bible that one does not believe in is a charade; better to make a politician swear an oath to ‘We the people’, one he/she can be held accountable for in a court of law. President Biden just got the maximum four Pinocchios from WaPo — surely an impeachable offence!
