This worldwide coronavirus imposed lockdown is the necessary crisis to now allow the inevitable collapse of mass consumption based Capitalism that I wrote about in 2018.(1) So let me give you some information to ponder on.
In 2009, PREDICT a research program, part of the Emerging Pandemic Threats program, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID, motto “From the American people”) was initiated. It was described as “Surveillance for new pandemic threats in “hot spot” countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America […] focuses on wildlife (particularly non-human primates, bats, and rodents) as well as people with close contact with wildlife.”(2)
In Sept 2019 the 2nd phase of the program came to an end, it had “identified 1,200 different viruses that had the potential to erupt into pandemics, including more than 160 novel coronaviruses…trained and supported staff in 60 foreign laboratories — including the Wuhan lab that identified SARS-CoV-2, the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19.”(3)
However labs around the world were now not just identifying natural viruses they were engaged in “the creation of potential pandemic pathogens (PPP), often termed “gain-of-function” (GOF) experiments.”(4) This research “involves experimentation that aims or is expected to (and/or, perhaps, actually does) increase the transmissibility and/or virulence of pathogens. Such research, when conducted by responsible scientists, usually aims to improve understanding of disease causing agents, their interaction with human hosts, and/or their potential to cause pandemics. The ultimate objective of such research is to better inform public health and preparedness efforts and/or development of medical countermeasures (well that worked!). Despite these important potential benefits, GOF research (GOFR) can pose risks regarding biosecurity and biosafety.”(5) In fact it was deemed so risky that in 2014 funding for these experiments was halted while a review was conducted, but in 2017 was resumed.(6)
There are outspoken critics of this research. “If the [new] virus escaped, nobody could predict the trajectory,” [stated] Simon Wain-Hobson, a virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. “The only impact of this work is the creation, in a lab, of a new, non-natural risk,” [stated] Richard Ebright, a molecular biologist and biodefence expert at Rutgers University.(7) One example of a specific experiment was in 2015 “Ralph Baric, an infectious-disease researcher at the University of North Carolina… published a study on his team’s efforts to engineer a virus with the surface protein of the SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, and the backbone of one that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in mice. The hybrid virus could infect human airway cells and caused disease in mice, according to the team’s results.”(7) This sort of experiment however would leave a signature and “While the scientists state that there is no known laboratory “signature” in the SARS-Cov-2 RNA, their argument fails to take account of other lab methods that could have created coronavirus mutations without leaving such a signature.”(4) An example being serial passage in animals. “Ron Fouchier of the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, who performed research on intentionally increasing rates of viral mutation rate by spreading a virus from one animal to another in a sequence… Working with ferrets, the animal that is most like humans in responding to influenza, the researchers found that a mere five genetic mutations allowed the virus to spread through the air from one ferret to another while maintaining its lethality. A separate study at the University of Wisconsin, about which little is known publicly, produced a virus that is thought to be less virulent.”(4)
“The legal scholar who drafted the main U.S. law on [biowarfare], Francis Boyle, warned in his 2005 book “Biowarfare and Terrorism” that an “illegal biological arms race with potentially catastrophic consequences” was underway, largely driven by the U.S. government.”(4) The US are now blaming China, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisting “there is significant evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan” and suggested that it was in fact man-made.(8) Are they preparing to take the world to war?
However there are non-western hypotheses that this did not originate in China, not just coming out of China or Iran. “In February of 2020, the Japanese Asahi news report (print and TV) claimed the coronavirus originated in the US, not in China, and that some (or many) of the 14,000 American deaths attributed to influenza may have in fact have resulted from the coronavirus.”(9)
Obviously deadly viruses can occur naturally but the timing of this out break for me is too much of a coincidence. The following requirements had been voiced away from main stream media, pre global lockdown, that only a fearing public during a crisis would accept.
- A new global currency (all currencies carry too much debt now, especially the dollar.(10) The Fed had already been intervening in markets since Sept 2019, similar to 2009 recession)
- Global mass implementation of robotics (fourth industrial revolution(11))
- The resulting rise in mass global unemployment requiring Universal Basic Income (advocated by the likes of Zuckerberg and Gates and now coming into law worldwide(12))
- Population control which is the reason given for the ecological meltdown. When in fact it’s the result overwhelmingly of profit driven, western based Capitalism driving huge amounts of deforestation, pollution and non biodegradable waste.(13)
The result will be a cut down in freedoms, increased surveillance (governments will roll out “experts” and “data”, stating “we are protecting you”) and a massive drop in standard of living, especially in financially poorer countries where there is talk of unimaginable famine.(14) This is the new “normal”, but guaranteed as history shows the super rich dynasties have plans and will retain their power (their companies are being bailed out globally, your mortgages and loans will remain).(15) An historical example being the abolition of the British Empire’s slave trade in 1833. However monetary compensation was given to the slave owners(16) which was used to stimulate and further profit from the first Industrial Revolution, labour demand replaced by the Indian indenture system(17) and the loan for the bailout not paid back by the tax payer till 2015!
They are masters at backing violent regimes to further their agenda, then later creating them into an enemy to wage war against. All in the name of profit and power. An example being Operation Cyclone, where the CIA together with MI6 armed and funded militant Islamic groups to fight the Soviets.(18) They would later morph into Al-Qaeda and lead to the “War on Terror”, resulting in countless deaths in the Middle East, a fearful Western public, justification for mass surveillance and insane profits for the arms industry. After what is known in China as the “century of humiliation”, where after losing the Opium wars they were controlled by Western powers, Russia and Japan and now again the US over several years are threatening, have China unleashed a bioweapon? Perhaps… but more likely after the US negotiated with the “Communist” Chinese upper class in the late 1970’s that allowed US companies to exploit mass Chinese cheap labour(19)(20), Chinese usefulness has come to an end and the US have created the necessary crisis to get the job done.
Just to add, after funding for PREDICT came to an end in Sept 2019, 2 events happened in Oct 2019. Event201, a global pandemic exercise hosted in New York(21) and the 2019 Military World Games hosted in Wuhan where the US sent troops to participate.(22) If the US and China are on such bad terms, why would the Chinese allow US troops to compete and why would the US send military troops, even if it is a sporting event?
The US Center for disease control and prevention (CDC) “has recently acknowledged, during a hearing of the House Oversight Committee on March 11, that its biosurveillance program has uncovered evidence that Americans who had previously died to what had been originally diagnosed as influenza have, through post-mortem testing, been found to have actually have perished from the coronavirus. Normally, the details obtained from this kind of biosurveillance would be widely shared to better understand the scope and potential spread of the infection, as well as to better pin down the source and timing of the infections.
However, the initial meetings [since at least mid January] regarding a national-level coronavirus response conducted under the auspices of the Department of Health and Human Services, where intelligence gathered as a result of any such biosurveillance activity would logically be discussed, were all treated as classified events, under orders from the National Security Council. As a result, many people who otherwise would have been present were excluded, and those who did attend these meetings were precluded from discussing what occurred. This lack of transparency on the part of the Trump administration only fuels speculation about the reasons for meetings normally conducted in the open suddenly being classified, as well as precisely what information is being hidden from the public.”(23)
So I don’t think this is natural or even an accident, but a deliberate release via the US (larger military budget than the next nine countries combined) to create the next necessary enemy and crisis to enact necessary laws and perhaps take the world to war, all in order to maintain private power.
For those that do believe this is a natural event and it could very well be, with vaccinations we have forgotten our susceptibility to disease. Take a minute to step out of this craziness and think that this virus maybe targeting humans but we have and are unnaturally wiping out thousands of species! The impact of modern Capitalist led human activity on the Earth is devastating, we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction of species.(24)
I have subscribed to James Corbett on YouTube for some years and a recent upload led me to looking into this deeper.(25)
Last but not least, from the eastern point of view we experience a cyclical universe where physical life cannot exist without physical death. However death is not the end, that’s not to discount life’s importance but we have a spiritual component that lives on.
Thanks for reading, peace.
