the Social Aspects of the Corona Pandemic

“Humanity has entered upon a stage of evolution in which evil and untruth must become visible. It is already there: evil, horror, lies, decline – it is all there, only it is still glossed over. But it must be exposed. It will reveal itself in the details of indi­vidual lives – in marriages, families, friendships and, above all, in enmities – just as in the mutual life of peoples and states. In certain things there will no longer be restraint. Only those people will be able without spiritual decay and without taking spiritual harm to withstand all that is to come, who are able to distinguish both without and even more within themselves the essential from the unessential, who without as well as within them­selves are able to differentiate between truth and lies.”

HOW TO PERSUADE AND CONTROL THE MASSES

ON THE ORIGIN OF MANIPULATIONS OF PUBLIC OPINION

An almost 4 hours long documentary about the invention of so-called 'public relations' (euphemism for manipulation of public opinion) by Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud in 1920s. Bernays was one of the main architects of modern techniques of mass-consumer persuasion, using every trick in the book, from celebrity endorsement to eroticising the products. This sophisticated approach of mass-consumer persuasion has become the standard tool of corporations and political organisations to stir public demands and opinions in the direction they prefer.

INFLUENCING BEHAVIOUR OF PEOPLE AS CORNERSTONE OF PUBLIC POLICY

This report, published in 2009, was exploring the application of behavioural theory to public policy for senior public sector leaders and policy-makers. It was a key part of a programme of work designed to build capacity and capability in this area across the Civil Service in UK. Influencing the behaviour of people is central to public policy. For policy-makers, behavioural approaches offer a potentially powerful new set of tools of ‘nudging’ citizens into directions they want. There is no safeguard against misuse of this knowledge, except the continuous public scrutiny of those who are claiming that they use behaviour theory for the “benefits of all.”

BLACKROCK & VANGUARD OWN MAINSTREAM MEDIA & BIG PHARMA

Just two asset management firms, Vanguard and BlackRock are the top two owners of the four media companies that control more than 90% of the US media landscape. BlackRock and Vanguard form a secret monopoly that owns just about everything else you can think of too. In all, they have ownership in 1,600 American firms, which in 2015 had combined revenues of $9.1 trillion. When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms (the largest US publicly traded companies). And the owners of these three asset management firms are the members of the richest families and individuals in the world.

THE DELUSIONS OF AN OBJECTIVE MATERIALISTIC SCIENCE

In this short talk the author presents his view that inside the science world there exists a conflict between science as a method of inquiry based on hypothesis, reason, evidence and collective investigation, and science as a belief system or a worldview based on philosophical materialism. This restricted worldview has produced many dogmas that inhibit free inquiry. If these dogmas are turned into questions then we can discover that none of them stand up very well from the perspective of genuine science. By moving beyond these dogmas, science can be regenerated and became interesting again and hopefully life-affirming.

THE CORRUPTION OF THE MEDICAL SECTOR

HEALTHCARE AS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS MODEL

The United States runs the by far largest and most bloated healthcare sector in the world when measured as a share of the total economy. Exorbitant prices on drugs, medical treatment and health insurances are crushing consumers. In addition to the original sin of corporate greed, the exorbitant costs of the US healthcare system stem from layers upon layers of distortions with which the system is infested. Each part of the healthcare industry contributes to what is a giant monopoly scam: the pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment manufacturers, drug wholesalers, drug stores, group purchasing organizations, health insurance companies, doctors, clinics and hospitals, and even what should be impartial university research.

WESTERN MEDICINE LIVES IN the ORBIT
OF THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

Nowadays the doctors in the USA and in many other western countries are trained, funded, and accountable to the pharmaceutical industry. Medical schools teach doctors how to match symptoms with prescriptions, hospitals negotiate with insurance companies based on the cost of drugs, and the race is ongoing to create new drugs. There’s far more money in prescription drugs and medical equipment than there is in holistic and homeopathic treatments. Therefore it should not be a great surprise that, for example, the American database contains over 11.5 million records between 2013 and 2017, reflecting $8.4 billion in gifts and payments from the pharmaceutical industry to the doctors.

WIKIPEDIA'S BIAS AGAINST ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES

If you have the perception of Wikipedia as a legitimate encyclopaedia then you should read this article which is exposing it as nothing more than a propaganda machine disguised as an encyclopaedia. This is more than evident from the content based upon the pharmaceutical paradigm of therapy which is always presented as acceptable, while all other methods of healing are rejected and degraded as pseudoscience, quackery or charlatanry.

No reason to trust the World Health Organization

The World Health Organization (WHO) is a sort of transnational superministry for health. Its power overrides that of its national equivalents. It is not subjected to genuinely democratic electoral procedures, in the sense of representing the choice expressed by the populations of its member countries. In this case globalisation has not brought about a world that is better governed, more just, more transparent, but on the contrary, has created a system that is harder to decipher and understand, and is all-powerful.  This brew of omnipotence and dense secrecy, of being all-powerful and totally resistant to democratic investigation, is deadly. Therefore the world would be getting much better health without the WHO whose original mission has been hijacked for the sake of financial profits for the few.

A PSEUDOPANDEMIC BASED ON LIES, FEAR AND CENTRALISED AUTHORITY

The author of the book has arrived – on the basis of incontrovertible evidence – at the conclusion that COVID 19 was a pseudopandemic. The threat level suggested by those running the psychological operation was a lie. It was a fraud designed to fool people into abandoning their inalienable rights and freedoms. COVID 19 was a pseudopandemic because a powerful group capitalised upon a respiratory disease, with a relatively low mortality rate, to create the illusion of a dangerous global pathogen. This risk was compounded by the global reliance upon tests which were not diagnostic tools and were incapable of identifying a COVID 19 ‘case’. For all these reasons this pseudopandemic is first and foremost a crime. There are real people who are guilty of it. The author has written this book in the firm hope that the plan ultimately fails and that we never allow our society to be manipulated by criminals again. This can be achieved only if enough people are capable to see through the fog of lies and if we dismantle the existing authoritarian structure that enabled the enactment of such a vast psychological operation and behavioural control of billions through fear.

THE STARK REALITY OF CORRUPTION OF THE MEDICAL SYSTEM IN THE USA

The author’s 40-year career as an environmental and public health advocate gave him a unique understanding of the corrupting mechanisms of ‘regulatory capture’, the process by which the regulator becomes duty-bound to the industry it’s meant to regulate. The CDC, for example, owns 57 vaccine patents and spends $4.9 of its $12.0 billion-dollar annual budget (as of 2019) buying and distributing vaccines. NIH owns hundreds of vaccine patents and often profits from the sale of products it supposedly regulates. The FDA receives 45 percent of its budget from the pharmaceutical industry, through what are euphemistically called ‘user fees’. The book presents the extraordinary role of Dr. Anthony Fauci who dispenses $6.1 billion in annual taxpayer-provided funding for scientific research, allowing him to dictate the subject, content, and outcome of scientific health research across the globe. Fauci uses the financial clout at his disposal to wield an extraordinary influence over hospitals, universities, journals, and thousands of influential doctors and scientists – whose careers and institutions he has the power to ruin, advance, or reward.
