Gates Unhinged: Dystopian Vision for the Future of Food

Colin Todhunter

We are currently seeing an acceleration of the corporate consolidation of the entire global agrifood chain. The high-tech/data conglomerates, including Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google, have joined traditional agribusiness giants, such as Corteva, Bayer, Cargill and Syngenta, in a quest to impose a certain type of agriculture and food production on the world.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is also involved (documented in the recent report ‘Gates to a Global Empire‘ by Navdanya International), whether through buying up huge tracts of farmland, promoting a much-heralded (but failed) ‘green revolution’ for Africa, pushing biosynthetic food and new genetic engineering technologies or more generally facilitating the aims of the mega agrifood corporations.

Of course, those involved in this portray what they are doing as some kind of humanitarian endeavour – saving the planet with ‘climate-friendly solutions’, helping farmers or feeding the world. This is how many of them probably do genuinely regard their role inside their corporate echo chamber. But what they are really doing is repackaging the dispossessive strategies of imperialism as ‘feeding the world’.

Failed Green Revolution

Since the Green Revolution, US agribusiness and financial institutions like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have sought to hook farmers and nation states on corporate seeds and proprietary inputs as well as loans to construct the type of agri infrastructure that chemical-intensive farming requires.

Monsanto-Bayer and other agribusiness concerns have since the 1990s been attempting to further consolidate their grip on global agriculture and farmers’ corporate dependency with the rollout of genetically engineered seeds, commonly known as GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

In her latest report, ‘Reclaim the Seed’, Vandana Shiva says:

In the 1980s, the chemical corporations started to look at genetic engineering and patenting of seed as new sources of super profits. They took farmers varieties from the public gene banks, tinkered with the seed through conventional breeding or genetic engineering, and took patents.”

Shiva talks about the Green Revolution and seed colonialism and the pirating of farmers seeds and knowledge. She says that 768,576 accessions of seeds were taken from farmers in Mexico alone:

…taking the farmers seeds that embodies their creativity and knowledge of breeding. The ‘civilising mission’ of Seed Colonisation is the declaration that farmers are ‘primitive’ and the varieties they have bred are ‘primitive’, ‘inferior’, ‘low yielding’ and have to be ‘substituted’ and ‘replaced’ with superior seeds from a superior race of breeders, so called ‘modern varieties’ and ‘improved varieties’ bred for chemicals.”

It is now clear that the Green Revolution has been a failure in terms of its devastating environmental impacts, the undermining of highly productive traditional low-input agriculture and its sound ecological footing, the displacement of rural populations and the adverse impacts on village communities, nutrition, health and regional food security.

Aside from various studies that have reported on the health impacts of chemical-dependent crops (Dr Rosemary Mason’s many reports on this can be accessed on the academia.edu website), ‘New Histories of the Green Revolution’ (2019) debunks the claim that the Green Revolution boosted productivity; ‘The Violence of the Green Revolution’ (1991) details (among other things) the impact on rural communities; Bhaskar Save’s open letter to Indian officials in 2006 discusses the ecological devastation of the Green Revolution and in a 2019 paper in the Journal of Experimental Biology and Agricultural Sciences, Parvez et al note that native wheat varieties in India have higher nutrition content than the Green Revolution varieties (many such crop varieties were side-lined in favour of corporate seeds that were of lower nutritional value).

These are just a brief selection of peer-reviewed and ‘grey’ literature which detail the adverse impacts of the Green Revolution.

GMO value capture

As for GM crops, often described as Green Revolution 2.0, these too have failed to deliver on the promises made and, like the 1.0 version, have often had devastating consequences.

The arguments for and against GMOs are well documented, but one paper worth noting appeared in the journal Current Science in 2018. Along with PC Kesavan, MS Swaminathan – regarded as the father of the Green Revolution in India – argued against introducing GM crops to India and cited various studies about the failings of the GMO project.

Regardless, the industry and its well-funded lobbyists and bought career scientists continue to spin the line that GM crops are a marvellous success and that the world needs even more of them to avoid a global food shortage. GM crops are required to feed the world is a well-worn industry slogan trotted out at every available opportunity. Just like the claim of GM crops being a tremendous success, this too is based on a myth.

There is no global shortage of food. Even under any plausible future population scenario, there will be no shortage as evidenced by scientist Dr Jonathan Latham in his recent paper ‘The Myth of a Food Crisis’.

However, new gene drive and gene editing techniques have now been developed and the industry is seeking the unregulated commercial release of products that are based on these methods.

It does not want plants, animals and micro-organisms created with gene-editing to be subject to safety checks, monitoring or consumer labelling. This is concerning given the real dangers that these techniques pose.

Many peer-reviewed research papers now call into question industry claims about the ‘precision’, safety and benefits of gene-edited organisms and can be accessed on the GMWatch.org website.

It really is a case of old wine in new bottles.

And this is not lost on a coalition of 162 civil society, farmers and business organisations which has called on Vice-President of the European Commission Frans Timmermans to ensure that new genetic engineering techniques continue to be regulated in accordance with existing EU GMO standards.

The coalition argues that these new techniques can cause a range of unwanted genetic modifications that can result in the production of novel toxins or allergens or in the transfer of antibiotic resistance genes. The open letter adds that even intended modifications can result in traits which could raise food safety, environmental or animal welfare concerns.

The European Court of Justice ruled in 2018 that organisms obtained with new genetic modification techniques must be regulated under the EU’s existing GMO laws. However, there has been intense lobbying from the agriculture biotech industry to weaken the legislation, aided by the Gates Foundation.

The coalition states that various scientific publications show that new techniques of genetic modification allow developers to make significant genetic changes, which can be very different from those that happen in nature.

In addition to these concerns, a new paper from Chinese scientists, ‘Herbicide Resistance: Another Hot Agronomic Trait for Plant Genome Editing’, says that, in spite of claims from GMO promoters that gene editing will be climate-friendly and reduce pesticide use, what we can expect is just more of the same – GM herbicide-tolerant crops and increased herbicide use.

The industry wants its new techniques to be unregulated, thereby making gene-edited GMOs faster to develop, more profitable and hidden from consumers when purchasing items in stores. At the same time, the costly herbicide treadmill will be reinforced for farmers.

None of this is meant to imply that new technology is bad in itself. The issue is who owns and controls the technology and what are the underlying intentions. By dodging regulation as well as avoiding economic, social, environmental and health impact assessments, it is clear that the industry is first and foremost motivated by value capture and profit and contempt for democratic accountability.

This is patently clear if we look at the rollout of Bt cotton in India which served the bottom line of Monsanto but brought dependency, distress and no durable agronomic benefits for many of India’s small and marginal farmers. Prof A P Gutierrez argues that Bt cotton has effectively placed these farmers in a corporate noose.

Monsanto sucked hundreds of millions of dollars in profit from these cotton farmers, while industry-funded scientists are always keen to push the mantra that rolling out Bt cotton in India uplifted their conditions.

Those who promote this narrative remain wilfully ignorant of the challenges (documented in the 2019 book by Andrew Flachs – ‘Cultivating Knowledge: Biotechnology, Sustainability and the Human Cost of Cotton Capitalism in India‘) these farmers face in terms of financial distress, increasing pest resistance, dependency on unregulated seed markets, the eradication of environmental learning, the loss of control over their productive means and the biotech-chemical treadmill they are trapped on (this last point is precisely what the industry intended).

When assessing the possible impacts of GMO agriculture, it was with good reason that, in their 2018 paper, Swaminathan and Kesavan called for:

able economists who are familiar with and will prioritise rural livelihoods and the interests of resource-poor small and marginal farmers rather than serve corporate interests and their profits”.

What can be done?

Whether through all aspects of data control (soil quality, consumer preferences, weather, etc), e-commerce monopolies, corporate land ownership, seed biopiracy and patenting, synthetic food or the eradication of the public sector’s role in ensuring food security and national food sovereignty (as we could see in India with new farm legislation), Bill Gates and his corporate cronies seek to gain full control over the global food system.

Smallholder peasant farming is to be eradicated as the big-tech giants and agribusiness impose lab-grown food, GM seeds, genetically engineered soil microbes, data harvesting tools and drones and other ‘disruptive’ technologies.

We could see farmerless industrial-scale farms being manned by driverless machines, monitored by drones and doused with chemicals to produce commodity crops from patented GM seeds for industrial ‘biomatter’ to be processed and constituted into something resembling food.

The displacement of a food-producing peasantry (and the subsequent destruction of rural communities and local food security) was something the Gates Foundation once called for and cynically termed “land mobility”.

Technocratic meddling has already destroyed or undermined agrarian ecosystems that draw on centuries of traditional knowledge and are increasingly recognised as valid approaches to secure food security, as outlined in Food Security and Traditional Knowledge in India in the Journal of South Asian Studies, for instance.

But is all of this inevitable?

Not according to the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems, which has just released a report in collaboration with the ETC Group: ‘A Long Food Movement: Transforming Food Systems by 2045‘.

The report outlines two different futures. If Gates and the global mega-corporations have their way, we will see the entire food system being controlled by data platforms, private equity firms and e-commerce giants, putting the food security (and livelihoods) of billions at the mercy of AI-controlled farming systems.

The other scenario involves civil society and social movements – grassroots organisations, international NGOs, farmers’ and fishers’ groups, cooperatives and unions – collaborating more closely to transform financial flows, governance structures and food systems from the ground up.

The report’s lead author, Pat Mooney, says that agribusiness has a very simple message: the cascading environmental crisis can be resolved by powerful new genomic and information technologies that can only be developed if governments unleash the entrepreneurial genius, deep pockets and risk-taking spirit of the most powerful corporations.

Mooney notes that we have had similar messages based on emerging technology for decades but the technologies either did not show up or fell flat and the only thing that grew were the corporations.

He says:

In return for trillions of dollars in direct and indirect subsidies, the agribusiness model would centralise food production around a handful of untested technologies that would lead to the forced exodus of at least a billion people from hundreds of millions of farms. Agribusiness is gambling on other people’s food security.”

Although Mooney argues that new genuinely successful alternatives like agroecology are frequently suppressed by the industries they imperil, he states that civil society has a remarkable track record in fighting back, not least in developing healthy and equitable agroecological production systems, building short (community-based) supply chains and restructuring and democratising governance systems.

As stated in the report, the thrust of any ’Long Food Movement’ strategy is that short-termism is not an option: civil society groups need to place multiple objectives and actions on a 25-year roadmap and not make trade-offs along the way – especially when faced with the neoliberal-totalitarianism of Gates et al who will seek to derail anything or anyone regarded as a threat to their aims.

The real danger here is speeding towards a hard stop. GMo is a dead man walking. In the 30 years (or 1 human generation) they’ve been developing RoundUp ready GMOs, 30 generations of weeds have been getting RoundUp ready too. Have you not noticed the diminishing results of RoundUp over the years? It’s efficacy against even the most common species of weeds has diminished sharply. Many of the weed killing products at your local hardware store have started moving away from glyphosate. So even if Monsantos wet dream comes true and every crop in the world is GMo, sometime very soon their genetic modifications will become useless and all well be left with are frankencrops that are substandard yet highly invasive. So what you’re seeing is not a ‘power grab’ as a rush to be the one to steer the next phase. And a play to squeeze the last profits out of a dying technology. But they’re bluffing about having some superior product or plan. What they have is obsolete, and as is so often the case, rather than yield their Monopoly, they’ll move goalposts or wreck the playing field before letting someone else bring forth a better plan. WTF does Bill gates know about farming. He just wants to be the boss of everything. No matter the cost to the rest of us. Agriculture on this planet currently produces enough yield to supply 1500 calories a day to 11 billion people. Before you even count meat, fish or nuts. There is no food shortage coming. Just the obso!essence of franken food and it’s profits. Thats the thing they’re actually crying about. That can’t come soon enough. But we can’t let it be replaced by something worse just so Bill gates and Monsanto can get richer.

Fucking scary. As usual.

Bought a car the other day. Major delays in delivery. Needless to say the general sales manager/I am the boss of everything, sat with me to settle me. I was buying a car two tiers above my usual level. What the fuck. I am going to be dead soon.

So he sat with me and boy did he get an earful. And he thanked me. He had never understood my perspective. He asked questions and wanted to follow up to verify. I worked him as best as I could.

A success in my mind. I warned him. Google is bad. MSM is bad. Follow the links in the sources I provide. He said he would.

There you go.

People are reaching. People are upset. They are looking for leadership.

It is a simple formula.

People in know need to stick their necks out and lead.

It is all about country.

Our founding fathers asses were hanging in the wind but they survived.

We need people willing to put their asses on the line to fight this insanity that has overcome our country.

I’ve been looking for someplace to put this particular comment – which, I confess, is apropos of almost nothing posted in any recent article. But here goes.

I’m currently watching a long interview of James Corbett by a Thaddeus Russel of The Unregistered Podcast (it’s posted on Corbett’s website). I’m halfway through and plan to finish watching. But something was said which sent my “WTF Did You Just Say?” beeper howling.

Mr Russel said – and Mr Corbett seemed to agree – that the notion of “finite resources” here on earth was a huge hoax. Really? Our resources are not “finite?” They are therefore infinite? Dudes: all the resources in the entire freaking universe are FINITE!!!!! There’s a hell of a lot of them; but they are not infinite.

Even considering that resources are continually being produced – as, e.g., by volcanic eruptions on earth and by fusion, fission and what not within galaxies – the raw material will run out eventually.

“Finite” means just that. “Infinite” means just that. I don’t give a shit what your ideology is, you can’t change reality to fit it.

What I wonder: if the spraying ionizes the atmosphere, as has been proposed, does it also ionize us once it gets inside? If so, the maniacs who (think they) run the world won’t need micro-chips to put the fear of the rich and powerful in people. They just emf us till we cry “Uncle Billy!”

The idiotic repetition of propaganda aims to redirect human activity in a purely mechanical way. It bypasses your conscious mind and sinks in to your instincts and impulses. That is why the covid crud has been like a one note symphony eternally repeated for the last year. Another repetition is highlighted by a George Galloway tweet (which interestingly seems to be from a year ago. How eerily prescient it is!)

I have just taken an inordinate (and waste of) time blocking 119 people on my Facebook who literally believe the earth may be flat. By co-incidence they all opposed vaccination and considered #Corona a hoax or even a plot by unknown elites to control the new world order.

The equation of covid sceptics and anti-vaxxers with “flat earthers” is one of those strategies that is so moronic it shouldn’t be taking up any of your time at all. And yet this utter non-sequitur logic comes in the night and repeats and repeats in your ear, “Don’t you know you fool you never can win!”

And it joins such other repetitious fallacies as “covid as end of capitalism” and “covid sceptics as Right Wing” etc.

Repeat and don’t fade …unfortunately.

(Disclaimer: I know that Wikipedia is mostly a heap of psy-op shite. But I am using them to make a point.)

I have developed such a mistrust of mainstream sources that I automatically skip over any reference they make to the expression “conspiracy theory”. Another expression to look out for is “debunked”. The moment they say something has been debunked you can assume it hasn’t been. And, considering the tenacity of the Guy Fawkes myth, the passage of decades and even centuries makes no difference to my scepticism.

Philip Roddis voiced his hostility to the expression “litmus test” as a draconian dismissal of certain thinkers. But I think it is valid to talk about such tests. And, pre-covid, the biggest litmus test was 9/11. Consider the ex-cathedra statement from Wiki:

“9/11 conspiracy theories have become social phenomena, despite lack of support from expert scientists, engineers, and historians.”

Along with this reversal of the burden of proof:

“Dr Michael Wood and Dr Karen Douglas University of Kent psychologists who specialize in conspiracy theories examined the comments sections of over 2000 news articles relating to the collapse of World Trade Center 7. They found that proponents of 9/11 conspiracy theories were more likely to try and debunk the mainstream account than promote their own theories and also were more likely to believe in other conspiracy theories.”

As if it was incumbent for these 9/11 sceptics to come up with their own theory before being permitted to examine the official account!

I recently became interested in the Merovingian dynasty and the matter of the Priory of Sion. I haven’t looked into it that far yet, but I already hear the alarm bells when I read this from Wiki:

“… the mythical history of the Priory of Sion was exposed as a ludibrium — an elaborate hoax in the form of an esoteric puzzle …Pieces of evidence presented in support of the historical existence and activities of the Priory of Sion… were discovered to have been forged and then planted….”

And there are louder bells when I read this:

“Despite the “Priory of Sion mysteries” having been exhaustively debunked … many conspiracy theorists still persist in believing that the Priory of Sion was a millennium-old cabal concealing a religiously subversive secret.”

And here is the loudest bell:

“Some skeptics express concern that the proliferation and popularity of pseudohistorical books, websites and films inspired by the Priory of Sion hoax contribute to the problem of unfounded conspiracy theories becoming mainstream; while others are troubled by how these works romanticize the reactionary ideologies of the far right.

Ah how familiar does that sound?

None of this means that the Sion thing is not a hoax. But I no longer blandly take it for granted that it is.

In the UK, 1,250 reports of tinnitus associated with the AZ vaccine and 392 associated with the Pfizer vaccine according to the latest ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine adverse reactions report’. Remember that only a small percentage of people report adverse reactions via the Yellow Card system, so the figures are probably a lot higher.

If you ignore MSM and ‘just vent your spleen’ in here and similar places, you’re just preaching to the converted in an echo chamber. It’s pointless. That’s why ‘they’ve’ won.

Just venting your spleen on these marginalised channels is the only place where you can vent your spleen. You will certainly never get access to the MSM. So the best you can do is to vent where you can and hope it eventually circulates with other venting until it has an effect – whether the MSM report that effect or not. (They probably won’t.)

I post there frequently and you would be surprised at how many people are like-minded and can see through the scam. Posting here is pointless. I mainly visit Off-Guardian for the opinions and links that I otherwise wouldn’t be aware of.

Your posts can be reported on the Mail forums by other posters and then deleted but that has happened to me once – when I repeated the news from UK Column that a child of 2 had died from a Moderna vaccine in the USA – I’m assuming that it was deleted as the story is not yet confirmed.

I am displaying my old prejudices here but I tend to balk at posting on the Daily Mail – seeing it as a Right Wing paper. But as I have noted so often, covid scepticism seems to be permitted on the Right because it has long since been a tool of division to sever “conspiracy theory” from the Left. Such severance is an old story but COVID has brought the conspiracy phobia of the Left out in a decisive way.

Again as I have often said, the COVID move has been packaged as a “Left” matter through the alleged damage the virus has done to capitalism. Thus all the ones I would have previously associated with have surrendered to the church of COVID.

So here I am homeless on OffG. And yes you are right that you will find the Biblical, New Age, UFO, and often genuinely anti-Semitic stuff here. And perhaps that does indeed mean that OG has become a marginalised site. But, as a “Left” site it is worth more than a million WSWSs, Skwawkboxes and Canaries put together.

I have previously frequented Toby Young’s Lockdown Skeptics which tends to attract commenters from across the political spectrum – but it is seen as a “Tory” site and easily dismissed by the likes of Nafeez Ahmed who is pushing the “vaccine as socialist revolution” shit.

So frankly I don’t know what to do. If there is a build up of COVID scepticism then ultimately it won’t matter where it comes from. I reckon the vast majority of the public no longer care about the Left/ Right divide especially when it is precisely that divide that is being used to push the COVID pish.

I have stopped using the term ‘G00gle’. I use ‘web search’ or I point people to my current favorite: Qwant. For hobby sites and questions Qwant does not return the most relevant results, which is when I turn to DuckDuckGo since it uses the G00gle web crawler. But for any politically charged content, Qwant is much less MSM driven in the results.

I’ve been trying to de-G00gle for a couple years now, and except for a few instances I can avoid using them in my everyday life. The hardest is the Android phone, but I have blocked access to everything unless I explicitly allow it on a case by case basis. That is the best I can do without rooting and attempting to install a non-G00gle APK. There are workarounds for app installs without resorting to the Play store, and if that is the only option, there are apps that will access the play store without having to log into a G account. I honestly don’t use very many apps so the workarounds and such are not a huge hardship.

The next step is to root the phone and install a Linux OS. I have been researching PureOS quite a bit and may move that direction soon. I wish their (Purism) Made in the USA Librem5 phone wasn’t $2k. That’s just a little too much to justify at this point in my life.

Well, I have thought the same. I know we cant see it right now but history has proven things can change in a flash. It also depends on what exactly is behind all this. I’m not talking the main motives and agendas, but rather if Melinda Gates wearing an upside down cross is significant , Pizzagate, freemasons and so on.

I also say if evil exists, there is a counter force. We may be entering a dark age but on the other hand this may actually be an opportunity where humanity takes down evil. We’ll see.

Indeed. The problem I have with places like Off-Guardian – and I don’t encounter it much on say the Daily Mail’s unmoderated forums on Covid-19, is the talk of 5g, nanobots, The Bible (Revelations), aliens etc. I would never link anyone I know to this site because of the more ‘eccentric’ posters. Yes, I know, they have as much right to make claims as I do – we all agree that there is a conspiracy, we just don’t agree on what it is!

In here, it’s as though everyone thinks they can only post in here, MI5 is watching the other sites – guys, they’re watching this one, too, if they can be bothered! The authorities probably completely ignore sites like this as they have no overall impact because nobody reads them.

As I said above, try the Daily Mail forums for Covid-19 posts and get posting, too. They’re not moderated at all. Lots of people posting about meeting up for the march in London on Saturday, and many, many like-minded people posting amongst the sheep.

Interesting you would include 5G in with “nanobots, The Bible (Revelations), aliens, etc.” Perhaps you’re unaware that 5G is 100% real and is being swiftly brought to a position of worldwide installment as the latest phase in the ongoing electromagnetic frequency paradigm (6G is already on the drawing board).

Countless studies have been done pointing out the dangers of increasing the level of emf smog surrounding the planet. Some commenters may have jumped the gun suggesting a deliberate connection between 5G and COVID-19; but that hardly renders untenable the perceived danger of exponentially increasing the level of emf exposure – or consigning 5G to a common bin with UFOs and demons.

I have to say that there is now emerging a massive, bottom-up return to healthy organic growing practices at complete odds with the Gates dystopia. It puts humans at the heart of growing healthy food, provides endless opportunities for humans to feel peace and serenity being close to nature, rather than made unemployed by robots and slaves of heartless billionaires.

It may not be as much reported in the media, on the internet, etc, but its pace is gathering and its acceptance by much of the mainstream is increasing exponentially.

From RT:

WHO: COVID vaccines INEFFECTIVE, do not prevent infection spread and hence no COVID passports as they are meaningless to prevent pandemics.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has staunchly rejected the use of Covid passports to reopen travel in a meeting of its emergency committee, over concerns that vaccinations alone won’t prevent the transmission of the virus.Reiterating their previously stated position on Monday, the WHO’s Emergency Committee said it opposed the use of proof of vaccination documents as a condition of international travel due to the lack of evidence over the impact of vaccination on the transmission of coronavirus.

The WHO’s declaration comes amid alarm from the group over “the persistent inequity in global vaccine distribution”, with the international health body stating that Covid passports would only further promote unequal freedom of movement.

it us exactly position WHO has for decades regarding seasonal flu epidemics.

80% OF SICILIANS SAY NO TO VACCINE
On Saturday, Sicily President Nello Musumeci announced that the majority of people on the island would refuse to be vaccinated with the controversial AstraZeneca vaccine. The supposedly “very rare” thromboses after vaccination have already been attributed directly to the vaccine by both German and Norwegian researchers.

FRENCH BOYCOTT VACCINE; NO-SHOWS FOR APPTS.
Official efforts are being made to downplay the risks of AstraZeneca / Vaxzevria. However, the French are unimpressed and boycott the vaccine. A YouGov poll at the end of March had already shown that 61% of the French questioned rate the vaccine as unsafe.

HANOVER, GERMANY: 2/3 OF DOCTORS SAY NO
“600 doctors and practice staff should be vaccinated in Hanover. However, only 200 people who wanted to be vaccinated showed up at the appointment. According to “ Norddeutschem Rundfunk ”, the others simply letthe appointment pass – despite a written agreement.”

The US Military went through a similar issue with Anthrax, that hadn’t actually been approved for us.

In Canada, a court martial was halted because a service member refused to be giving the anthrax vaccine. I believe the military ceased the court martial, because they did not want to loose the case.

It’s a simple remedy. I call it the Patriots Act.

People who support the Military and Politicians who would send them to war should have the vaccines that they are injected with. After all the vaccines used on service personal are safe.

Vaccine Circus Part II:

The main event and purpose of the Hollywood pure propaganda event “Roll Up Your Sleeves,” was most certainly the folksy three-way bro-zoom-ance of Barack Obama, Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley targeting the African American community who apparently is just not lining up for covid vaccines like they were expected to.

Enter, a president & two retired basketball stars all courtesy of one of the producers of the show, the digital media company ATTN:

“ATTN focuses primarily on subjects like social justice, the environment, politics, health, criminal justice reform, immigration, and drug policy.” (Talk about a panopticon of services)
“ATTN consists of an editorial team of writers and journalists that contribute articles and opinion to the website as well as an in house production and animation studio that produces original video content primarily for social distribution.” (I think those are called copywriters, not journalists)

First this stark message:

“Black Americans are infected with Covid 19 at nearly 3x the rate of white Americans”

So they better damn well do something…. and quick.

At the start of the three way zoom call we get a surprise pop-in from Shaquille O’Neal’s mom, Lucille, who’s very impressed they are getting to chat with the former president. As they chuckle about their good fortune, Charles Barkley embeds the message:

“When a president asks you to do something, you have to do it no matter what it is.”

Got that subconscious? Good.

After the hellos and jokes about golf, retirement, endorsements, gambling in Vegas, and pretending to be bashful about the president learning how much you gamble in Vegas we get down to business:

Barack Obama: …part of our goal here is to make sure those who’s been going through so much in covid understand the need and the urgency of our communities getting vaccinated……Now that the vaccine becomes more available I want to make sure that our communities particularly African American and Latino as well as young people understand that this will save lives and allow people to get their lives back to normal and the sooner we get more people vaccinated the better off we’re going to be.

Charles Barkley: Mr. President, I get my second vaccine shot tomorrow. I cannot wait. I think it’s important for us to keep talking about the vaccine so I’m telling all my friends hey forget what happened back in the day (Wait, what happened back in the day???)… every black person please go out and get vaccinated (regardless of what happened back in the day??)

Shaquille O’Neal: I am vaccinated. Um… my family has underlying conditions – they are also vaccinated (even though they have underlying conditions??). I’m not worried about me and my family, I’m worried about the average mom and dad…(sure Shaq, just like I’m worried about the health & well being of that colony of ants in the corner of my garden)

B. Obama: First of all a lot of the underlying conditions. Things like diabetes, you know folks who got preexisting conditions – there is more of that in communities of color which means we’re more vulnerable. A lot of young people think well you know, even if I get covid it’s going to be like a bad cold, but part of what we’re seeing now is a different strain of the virus has come over (from where, your mother’s house?), that’s now the dominant variant and it actually is hitting young people harder than the original version (just the one variant then, not 300, or 5000?) We don’t know the kinds of long term effects that we’re having. There’s some folks who get it and six months later they’re still not feeling quite right.

Part of the reason to get vaccinated is because it makes everybody safer and it’s the same reason why by the way, you know, we don’t have things like polio anymore. Measles used to kill people all the time (ALL the time???? no wonder we needed a vaccine). The reason we don’t see that is because kids get a vaccine before they even go to school.

And the last point I’ll make is Chuck, you mentioned history about things like Tuskegee (he didn’t mention Tuskegee) The irony is when you know about the Tuskegee experiment what was going on there was, the government withheld treatment that was available for black men for syphilis. It wasn’t that they made them sick by giving them medicine, it’s that they (simply) didn’t give them medicine they needed. And so here’s a situation where if the medicine’s available we need to take it (a vaccine is medicine now?).

And oh look, if the wealthy and the powerful in our society are all lining up to get shots that means everybody should know it’s a good thing to get (who doesn’t worship rich people?)

So there you have it. Tuskegee was simply the government WITHHOLDING medicine – it’s not like they poisoned anybody for gods sake – and now that they’re no longer withholding what at that time was desperately needed medicine by African Americans, you, my African American brothers and sisters are free and welcome to come and get this medicine that you desperately need….. for FREE!

Wow. I can’t even begin to unravel the psychological intricacies of this scripted little exercise in thought manipulation.

“When a president asks you to do something, you have to do it no matter what it is.”

Sadly, Barkley isn’t the first celebrity with a trademark “free spirit”, Wild ‘n Crazy Guy personality who harbors an unreconstructed authoritarian-submissive deference to the powerful.

This quote eerily resonates with, or complements, the attitude and rationale infamously uttered by Richard M. Nixon in 1977, when he responded to interviewer David Frost’s question about whether the POTUS has authority to commit illegal acts if deemed necessary for the greater good, “If the president does it, that means it’s not illegal.”

Too bad they couldn’t summon the ghost of MLB superstar Hank Aaron, who “coincidentally” died shortly after very publicly getting his COVID vaccine in his capacity of Role Model tasked to lead black people– sorry, Black people– out of the fog and darkness of self-destructive Vaccine Hesitancy.

Obama’s pretzel-logic attempt to use the Tuskegee atrocity as a lesson in responsibly Taking One’s Medicine is vile and reprehensible. Besides, isn’t Obama the one who sternly touts the principle that it’s generally best to “look forwards, not backwards”?

GOVERNMENT SILENCE COSTS LIVES
HUSBAND SAYS MHRA AND AZ FAILED TO ALERT PUBLIC TO SIDE EFFETS
FT: ‘Slow’ UK response to AstraZeneca side-effects alarms experts

Nine days after having her first shot of the Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine in mid-March, Julia began to have a headache…

Then on March 29, her husband Peter, a retired doctor, came home and found her in a coma. Doctors at Harrogate and District Hospital determined she had a “catastrophic brain injury” from cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) and a low platelet count — the rare blood condition linked to the AstraZeneca jab. Two days later she was dead at the age of 59.

Peter believes that his wife, who was once an AstraZeneca drug rep, could have been saved through specialist treatment if the MHRA and government had been quicker to alert the public to possible side-effects.

“There was an opportunity, a three day window, when something could have been done,” said Peter. But despite his personal tragedy, he said people should still have the AstraZeneca jab, as long as they have as much information as possible about the risks and benefits.

Mike Robinson: I wonder if relatives are really urging everyone to take the vaccine after their relatives have died — or is the press making up quotes.

The press coverage (NSW) of The Roll-Out has been running, like a daily TV soap opera, for months – since Our Leader did his Churchillian boast about having every adult Australian vaxxed by October..

That there’s been so many hiccups to the Roll-Out suggests much incompetence…On the other hand it suggests much hesitancy…

Our Leader is kept informed, daily, of the injuries & deaths piling up overseas (If not – he should sack his ‘medical advisor’)…The delays etc give him wriggle room -.as must the numerous Jab cancellations due to the local blood-clotting deaths have increased peoples’ ‘hesitancy’…

He’s known to buckle in the face of crises…Unfortunately many suffer when attention-seeking politicians are in charge…

Fauci holds a patent on HIV GP120

https://patents.justia.com/inventor/anthony-s-fauci

And we know SARS Cov” causes neural damage….

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-12-strongly-covid-virus-brain.html

Banks said the S1 protein in SARS-CoV2 and the gp 120 protein in HIV-1 function similarly. They are glycoproteins—proteins that have a lot of sugars on them, hallmarks of proteins that bind to other receptors. Both these proteins function as the arms and hand for their viruses by grabbing onto other receptors. Both cross the blood-brain barrier and S1, like gp120, is likely toxic to brain tissues.

And guess who pushed the funds through to ECOHealth Alliance… and what they then funded in Wuhan, China?

I suspect that we’ll be hearing more of this kind of thing:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56803647

“US neo-Nazi group should be banned in UK, home secretary says

An American neo-Nazi group linked to five murders in the US should be banned in the UK as a terrorist organisation, the government has said. Home Secretary Priti Patel will ask for permission from MPs to outlaw the group called Atomwaffen Division (AWD).”

This part seems particularly interesting:

“AWD’s racist ideology encourages the destabilisation and destruction of society through acts of violence by lone actors or small cells. Adherents believe such activity will accelerate a predicted collapse of civilization and that white ethno-states can be formed in the aftermath.”

A collapse of civilization can take place in various ways. For example, through a plague. I’ll bet you can see where I’m going with this!

So here’s how I reckon it will play out: There will be accelerating reportage of rising fascist and neo-Nazi groups. There will be increasing emphasis on the desire of these groups to collapse civilisation. And then the connection with COVID will be made explicit I.e. we will be told that these groups have hit on the idea of using the virus to cause the collapse. This can easily feed in to the notion that the “lesser” races can be culled through the virus.

And so these groups will be portrayed as cheerleading anti-lockdown protests.

The meme of “murderous herd immunity” comes in handy as it can easily be tweaked into Nazi ideology. In fact the entire notion of getting back to natural immunity (a very sensible matter) can be remoulded as “fascist regression”.

You heard it here first!

And if lockdown protest can be associated with fascism then the vaccine rollout becomes the “progressive” option. And that initial talk of the “most vulnerable” members of the community, the ones most in need of vaccination, is now projected onto the entire population who no longer have access to natural immunity which is now demonized as “murderous herd immunity” and further demonized by being linked to a fascistic survival of the fittest.

Thus the entire human race is recast as permanent invalids constantly requiring the “progressive” programme of eternal vaccination.

Anyone objecting to this will be portrayed as an uncouth “social Darwinist”, an advocate for a brutally elitist order.

And the common Right Wing sentiment that the Left are whiny supporters of a nanny state will become actual reality. And of course if you point this out, you will sound like one of those Rightists.

But THIS particular nanny state has nothing to do with protecting people who genuinely need help. No, THIS nanny stare will be an utterly artificially created confidence trick through which perfectly healthy people will be subjected to chemical rape facilitating an endless gravy train for the super rich.

The matter of planted “Marxists” is a fascinating one. Possibly the most overtly Left-Wing artist of all was Phil Ochs who used to put Maoist quotes on his albums. Dave McGowan has an interesting take on this:

Phil Ochs, folk singer/songwriter and political activist, was found hanged in his sister’s home in Far Rockaway, New York on April 9, 1976. Throughout his life,Ochs was one of the most overtly political of the 1960s rock and folk music stars. A regular attendee at anti-war, civil rights, and labor rallies, Ochs appeared to be, at all times, an unwavering political leftist (he named his first band The Singing Socialists). That all changed, however, and rather dramatically, in the months before his death….

In early summer of 1975, Phil Ochs’ public persona abruptly changed. Using the name John Butler Train, Ochs proclaimed himself to be a CIA operative and presented himself as a belligerent, right-wing thug.

Many years before Ochs’ metamorphosis, in an interesting bit of foreshadowing, psychological warfare operative George Estabrooks explained how US intelligence agencies could create the perfect spy: “We start with an excellent subject … we need a man or woman who is highly intelligent and physically tough. Then we start to develop a case of multiple personality through hypnotism. In his normal waking state, which we will call Personality A, or PA, this individual will become a rabid communist. He will join the party, follow the party line and make himself as objectionable as possible to the authorities. Note that he will be acting in good faith. He is a communist, or rather his PA is a communist and will behave as such. Then we develop Personality B (PB), the secondary personality, the unconscious personality, if you wish, although this is somewhat of a contradiction in terms. This personality is rabidly American and anti-communist. It has all the information possessed by PA, the normal personality, whereas PA does not have this advantage … My super spy plays his role as a communist in his waking state, aggressively, consistently, fearlessly. But his PB is a loyal American, and PB has all the memories of PA. As a loyal American, he will not hesitate to divulge those memories.” Estabrooks never explained what would happen if the programming were to go haywire and Personality B were to become the conscious personality, but my guess is that such a person would be considered a severe liability and would be treated accordingly. They might even be find themselves swinging from the end of a rope. Phil Ochs was thirty-five at the time of his death.”

It is very dangerous to promote the idea there is a virus as your theory points out. Even saying there is natural immunity plays into the propaganda. The cupbourd full of dangerous medications these people have had for the last 30 years is what needs to be pointed out not trying to claim there is natural immunity when there is no such thing. The idea of immunity is vaccine propaganda and natural immunity is simply a placeholder concept untill they develop a vaccine and try to force it on everyone coz “herd immunity”.

The Barnum and Bailey Vaccine Circus last night on NBC did not disappoint.
Here are some of the ladies and gentlemen of the evening who took part in a very creepy desperate and dystopian piece of social engineering called “Roll Up Your Sleeves”

Vaccine Circus Part I:
Lets start with an instant classic shakespearean masterwork featuring the down-homey over acting of Matthew McConaughey and the lifeless grey skin tone of Anthony Fauci:

M. McConaughy:…what would you say to the ones (the ones??) that fear that the vaccinations were rushed to approval and therefore are not safe and may have long term severe side effects?

A.Fauci: The vaccine platform technology that we put to bare here to get this vaccine has really been evolving for decades and fortunately for us we saw the culmination of that effect so it wasn’t cutting corners, it wasn’t sacrificing safety, it was merely a reflection of the extraordinary science.

MM: What do you say to the ones that feel getting vaccinated or not getting vaccinated is a political stance?

AF: You know the common enemy (money maker) is the virus not each other so the thing to do is to put aside any kind of political differences and kind of hostility you have and figure we have to pull together if we really want to get through this

MM: What would you say to the people who say HEY Let my immune system do it’s god given talents alone…

AF: Well I just point them to the 545,000 Americans who’ve died from this disease and to just show that you know very often when your dealing with a powerful pathogen like this virus your immune system needs a lot of help …uhh and that’s exactly what a vaccine does it preps you so that when you do get exposed to this virus you can get a running start and suppress it.

MM: What do you say to the people who say I already HAAAAD the virus (my god, the over-acting…)so I don’t need the vaccine..

AF: The one thing you’re not taking into account when you make that statement is that there are a lot of variants circulating around.

MM: People who say look I, I, I….. don’t fit the criteria to get vaccinated…

AF: This is a vaccine that is appropriate for everybody and anyone.

MM: Alright. Let’s do some Myth Bustin ….. some True and False…. True or False, there are long term side effects from the covid vaccination, True or False?

AF: FALSE….. FALSE…

MM: (Raises hands in the air in a cheering gesture) FALSE, ya hear that? FALSE! Alright. True or False, there are long term side effects from the covid in-FECT shun…

AF: TRUE.

MM: Alright. Dr. Fauci that was good, quick and informative.

AF: Alright Matthew thank you, I really appreciate you doing this.

MM: Well you’re welcome and thank you for the time, sir (military salute).

The American Empire has created oligarchs, with their massive concentrations of wealth to quickly steer it back to success. Musk is trying to magic a car industry, world Wifi and a space industry into being, and Amazon to take over the worlds retail. This is all strategized, it looks like it has all been brainstormed, the US is trying to corner vital services to hold the world to ransom. Data storage, retail, search engines, social media, food, seeds, pharmaceuticals, internet, GPS etc…

I just did my occasional roundup of the sites I used to visit and found, once again, what appears to be a complete lack of articles about, or indeed any mention of, COVID.

I had a brief glance at the Roddis site and see he has settled back into his delightfully untroubled COVID free world.

Meanwhile Richard Murphy’s Tax Research site delivers not only the customary vacuity on he subject but astonishingly actually offers up a piece on how the UK is descending into a police state WITH NO MENTION OF THE CENTRAL DEVICE THROUGH WHICH THIS IS BEING ACHIEVED I.e. the virus. See here:

https://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2021/04/14/our-descent-into-being-a-police-state-is-extraordinarily-rapid/

Murphy turns this again into a matter of “the Left” being stifled. And he frets:

“The world over we have seen that the ability of individuals, citizen journalists and, on occasion the mainstream media themselves, to record police violence against innocent people simply exercising their human right to express their opinion and to congregate to do so is all that we really have as a defence against police brutality.”

His entire concern is with the RECORDING of police brutality. The stated reason FOR the police brutality and, in particular, FOR the ban on congregating, (I.e. virus) is mentioned neither by Murphy nor his commenters.

Thus does this strange “opposition” present itself. There are indeed lots of fulminating but it has a curiously abstract character. These bloggers offer up the tediously familiar nomenclature of Leftist rebellion. But where are the specifics? I feel the weary assemblies of the traditional shock troops making their customary display, wave the red flag, address each other as “comrade” and rail against the Right. And it is all just warmed over boiler plate.

It would be more honest of them to recommend tuning into some Netflix blockbuster. It’s all just entertainment… while somewhere up there the rulers are planning out their moves which are so clearly none of our business that this designated opposition do not admit to such moves being planned at all.

If by “big govt”, you mean the dreaded “conspiracy” I.e. the idea that extremely powerful individuals and groups can forgo their differences and come together to – gasp! – conspire then I agree. But it seems to be this notion that is barred (deliberately) in thought designated Leftist which thereby had to constantly fall back on that dreary incompetence meme.

Effectively the prohibition on conspiracy precludes any proposal of conscious plotting and we seem to be stuck with the idea of individuals helplessly scrambling before some kind of depersonalised law of capital.

Thus, as you say, the conspiratorial view has tended to be seen as “Right Wing” amongst the self conscious self defined Left. Amongst the less self consciously political I.e. the general public, conspiracy theory is just dismissed as stupidity, gullibility etc.

9/11 set the tone. What is so bizarre about the American govt (or some group working therein) plotting an apparent terrorist attack on their own country to further geopolitical aims? And yet this is considered “madness” amongst many in the general public and as “Right Wing speculation” by the Left.

The COVID matter, considered as conspiracy, seems to violate much of Left dogma as it has unfortunately evolved. The capitalists appear to be collapsing their economy as the Left define it. That there may be a deeper restructuring designed to perpetuate the rule of the biggest capitalists while throwing the little players to the wall is something the Left don’t seem to have grasped.

Consequently, whenever I visit one of those Left sites I have the feeling I am entering some quaint world of olden times when it was easier to see the sides which, in retrospect, may never have been as presented.

I don’t think these Left groups are all phoneys although I am sure there are govt “supervisors” planted through the biggest of them. I just think that everyone born into that enviable time of post WW2 affluence (and that’s basically all of us) grew up to become quite complacent even when affecting dissident politics. The bright shiny consumer society round us was happy to provide whatever glamorous rebel figures and rebel ideology we fancied.

Of course the brightest were always aware of this. They were even aware of how it was all slipping away over the neoliberal years. But the political players were always cunning enough to keep us flattered by illusions of potent dissent.

And there was a Left game, so to speak I.e. an academic arena where the professors could write gratifyingly cryptic texts and receive accolades from their peers and groupies. Lots of publishing opportunities for some to become something akin to literary rock stars.

The Right Wing helped here by dishing up that “Cultural Marxism” label which made the Left academics feel even more deliciously subversive. And this is the kind of pseudo-controversy the rulers love. It keeps the more uppity plebs happy and has no threatening potential whatsoever.

But now comes COVID and the board has flipped. The illusionists have served up an irresistible scenario in which the Left get to play the winners for a change. So our brave Bolsheviks rushed in and gratefully seized the well prepared script.

But after a year of increasingly dubious viral triumphalism, even the most desperately grateful of the barricade stormers have started to develope the uneasy feeling they have been duped. Ah too late now. Their vanity recoils before the suspicion that they ought to confess their gullibility. So they respond by shutting up. Cue an embarrassed silence. Which has quite a way to go yet.

They had a headline that said “Covid-19 Death Toll Tops 3 Million…”! I started laughing! I remember learning back in 3/2020 that an average of 8,000 people die everyday in the US. A little math and you get: 30 days x 8,000 = 240,000 average deaths per month, 12 months x 240,000/month = 2.88 million deaths per year. Pretty close to 3 million! Since we had very little excess mortality in 2020, that means that basically everybody who died in the last year died of Covid!

All of that comes from the US. Shame on the EU for being pressured by the vaccine producers: but thank god the EU in staying strong against the US imposition of GMOs.

Besides There is no way the banking families would have allowed Gates or anyone else for that matter to forge a monopoly over Computing, THEY NEEDED / NEED that monopoly over computing ! Of course now there are tribe members in control of internet search (Another thing they NEEDED / NEED) and they decided to get into smart phones, and Apple is there for middle class sheep. But as long as they’re all members of the tribe, with the same supremacist religious belief and vision for the enslavement of the “Non chosen” thats fine !

America is but a tiny piece of a much larger game. If you don’t see any evidence it is because you refuse to see any evidence. Not unlike those Branch Covidians that stick their fingers in their ears and scream, “NO EVIDENCE! NO EVIDENCE! NO EVIDENCE!”

Well money is surely part if it. The military industrial complex, the intelligence agencies etc. must be funded. And money flows through banks. Ergo….

None of this is meant to imply that new technology is bad in itself. 

This is the only statement in Colin Todhunter’s article I would take exception to. All technology is bad; it cannot be otherwise. From its very inception, each new technological paradigm considers one thing and one thing only: its value to commercial interests. If a profit can be made, it receives the stamp of approval; otherwise, it is scrapped and no one ever hears about it.

There are many parallels, the Americans are again today trying to steal the worlds football league by creating an alternative which cherry picks the best teams, abandons the expensive infrastructure that created those teams and just tries to capture the profits.
It is short term asset stripping, parasitizing off the backs of years of others investment, development and hard work. Stripping fruits and not replacing them, like locusts stripping millions of acres of land in as short a period as possible.

They will destroy football like they have destroyed America, leaving it with no infrastructure, no future, bad healthcare, bad education, whilst off shoring all the profits, and leaving the country in a hell of poverty and desperation. The sport of football will be so much poorer than it was under European husbandry, the problem is they are buying off so many of the not important clubs who buy into the asset stripping franchise.
The economic model and the Empire that pushes the poisonous ideology is the problem;

American sport isn’t sport. Corruption and fixing are rampant – indeed fixing isn’t even illegal in US sport. Wrestling made it obvious – but it’s true in just about all the others.

Tiger Woods just happened to win the 2019 Masters despite his body (and probably mind) falling apart and no previous nor subsequent form? Naomi Osaka just happened to win the US Open when she was a walking billboard for BLM? It’s nothing new – Ali isn’t roaring with triumph in the famous photo with Liston, he’s yelling at Liston to get up after the notoriously corrupt older man took a dive.

It’s certainly a global agenda.

Sam was asking me who I thought the ‘heads’ are.

The WEF, Gates, WHO et al are, imo, simply carrying out instructions and therefore not the heads.

My point about the heads is that if we know their names and what they look like, they probably aren’t the ones in charge.

Further, the world seems a big place to us because we individually own virtually fuck all. For ‘them’, who own almost all of it, the world probably doesn’t seem quite so big – hence my use of parochial – it’s all their ‘back yard’ as it were.

In a very real sense, they see us (the great unwashed) as an infestation of something undesirable in their garden – an infestation they mean to get rid of.

I’m sure they’ve wanted it for a long time, but now they have the tools to finally achieve it – controlled mass media, technology, a dumbed down compliant population etc. I’m sure you’re as well aware of the landscape as I am.

So, yes – we could call it globalist. I think they would simply call it ‘garden management’.

“civil society has a remarkable track record in fighting back”

One has to look very hard to find evidence that our worst-case scenario is not inevitable, and I have seen nothing of civil society’s ‘remarkable track record in fighting back’.

The media fill our eyes and ears every day with news of colossal takeovers as if they were perfectly normal occurrences, but they were actually planned decades ago by ruthless, immoral thugs, whose money makes them irresistibly powerful.

WHY is it not inevitable?
WHERE is society’s remarkable track record in fighting back?

Maybe. Covidism-Cretenism, however, didn’t happen overnight. It’s not like people all of a sudden fell for a new religion.

Evidently, they must have been utterly fucked up before. The terrain had been well prepared, and the seed of Covidism-Cretenism fell on a fertile soil.

It must be faith in technological advancement, fueled by movies in which doctors can take apart and reassemble people and shit like that. People probably live under the illusion that fucking technologies, doodads, gizmos will solve all the maux of the world. Young people are the most fucked up. Probably because they don’t remember that computers used to crash on a regular basis just a few years ago, that cars sometimes needed to be push-started or pushed to the nearest garage.

It’s total fascination with technology. And total reliance on it. Hand in hand with the relinquishment of personal responsibility for oneself, i.e. whatever is wrong, there is a gizmo, pill that will fix it.

It’s fucked up. Sick fucked up.

It therefore must be done away with. Or: how does self awareness or introspection fit with robot obsession? It doesn’t.

Yeah, lock, stock and two smoking barrels, we are been attacked, humanity is been attacked, and its again the same people, the same financial forces, the same rethoric, and the same MSM whom pimps their fake science just to be bigger, and somehow, nobody does nothing about it.
Dont forget, most of the farming products comes from conglomerats created by the same farmers, whom again makes certain products like Chiken, etc to meat in various ways, the farmers are that inocent as somebody wants them to be, thats to divert the issue.
Take Norway, just to give you an ex.
An century ago, we had what, 100 000 sheeps, to day, over 2 mill, because of rules, like inheriting farms, some more obscure rules about alowing people to have sheeps based upon pedigrees, because they had familys whom had sheeps, and so then they to can have sheeps, the eradication of wilde life due to what they have managed to force upon our land the right to have sheeps everywhere, in vallys to high montain ranges, goats etc to cows, witch makes good marketing points while the same farmers have wiped out more or less everything even remotely close to predatores and on top of it, deers, witch suffers from inbreeding, over consuming areas, to many simply to be sustainable but is makeing land owners profits because of hunting.
While the slaughter weight plunges, raindeers tase shit because they have decades ago gone empty of their ooriginal food source witch is lichen, and have an strong taste if it eats their real food witch is by now more or less gone from mindboggling wast regions witch inturn have been made into desterts.
And somehow, since they starve they are feed the same as people feed other animals, incl fishfarms, aka food consentrates with color enhancers to make it look like wilde fish.

This is done thru corruption, greed and why we have this numbers is also becomed an national policy, social cultural enrigtchments due to subsedizing everything regarding farming while we dont need it, but is done because of poitical forces not by what we need, so in onder to have an lively price, you need to bake in the entire chain, from the animal to the supremarked desk, witch increases the price in magnitutes of ceveral hundred prosents.
If we cut that away, and cut the price to one third ( 1/3 ), the farmers would be better payed, and quality comes by it self, I can handle local, but screw me once and I never come back, its that simple.
The reason McD. is large is due to the product chain, witch by its inheret sice makes them able to purchase insane amount of grains to meat.
Witch again is processed and diluted etc, etc, with vegetables whom growns on water feed nutriants and taste nothing, what do you expect, I never go to an hamburger stand, I can walk into an Indian Resturant, all thoe I am not an veggis, I have no problems with their feed, even the ones wothout meat.
I reduce my chiken consumption to bare minimum because I know about their horrible conditions, incl here in Norway, to cows witch are by large treated like shit, and also others like Pigs, lord have mercy upon this poor souls.
I dont even know to day whom I pity most, humans or animals, even the prophet Muhammed warned about that, treat animals with all due respect, the same did Jesus, infact all of them did that, and what do we do.
Huh, the way we treat animals tells me, that the path from there to treat other humans in the same maner is just an thin weild, regarding the bullshit about humanism while we turn an blind eye on everything else.

I know that the day I die, when judgment comes, I have to pay for me own ignorance and stupidity, witch cant be exused other than to change, to do the right thing, fight for the right cause, animal rights, farmers rights, to human rights, everything is interconected, seperate one and you break the chain.
Otherwise I am 100% behind this articles premisses, we need to awake to the evil that is surounding us, and soon enslave everybody.
I could tell you about how the bigger farms in Norway whiped out the bulk of smal grain/wheet farms, by imposing regulations/processing costs, witch they knew this smal ones couldnt follow, that, have been their tool for centurys, this one goes back to the 1700s.
But its the same everywhere even to day, their means variate, but the end goal is the same, monopoly.
Not only is India an battle ground, look to Denmark, and so on, its everywhere.

Covid 19 is a godless religion.
The core belief system of this cult is they are ‘following the science’.

But this is based on faith not facts.
The disciples of this cult are so afraid of death and sickness that they are afraid of living.
They’ve forgotten how it feels to be normal, to be human and to embrace life.

Anyone who doesn’t share the same belief system or ideology, or who chooses not to wear a mask because there’s no scientific evidence to benefit wearing them and those who choose not to have themselves injected with experimental medicine that the manufacturer takes no responsibility for is a threat to these people.

The covid cult cannot be persuaded by facts and evidence.
They will always be prisoners in their own minds.

The people will break out of their intellectual prison when the prison starts to really hurt in some way that shifts the foundation of their identity. Like if they have a relative that gets sick of the vaccine, or if a partner develops OCD and can’t function, or if they lose a significant thing in their lives like their prestigious position.

When that happens, they won’t just wake up and say “I’m done with this madness!” They’ll try to hold on to their myths and group identity. They’ll rationalize and dig their heads in the sand, They’ll insist harder. They’ll malign the “conspiracy theorists” more. But the blasphemous ideas will start to sink in. Bit by bit, they’ll allow it into their thick skulls. And they’ll go through a horrible emotional process of losing faith in their institutions, and knowing that these institutions will now see them as about as valuable as pistachio shells. They’ll learn to live with that bit by bit, and take off layer after layer of blinders from their eyes.

When that happens, they will find on the “dark side” a cohort of bright, resilient humans who know how to be human and funny and evolving. Hopefully they can forever be humbled enough to remain vigilant against future mindless in-group behavior. One can dream!

In the UK there are 4.7 million people on a waiting list for medical treatment whilst the government are wasting billions on using a ‘test’ that’s not a ‘test’ to try and diagnose healthy people as being sick.

And as the ridiculous turns to absurdity these positive results result in the healthy requiring no medical treatment.

I recently did something remarkable for me: I introduced a note of hope that the covid shit would collapse. Some rejected the hope. And I reckon they are right. Even if this particular round of viral terrorism fails, it will only fail in a deliberately marginalised way whereby the media, as they so often do, will back down and move on without fuss, deliver a number of reports on “the deadly year and how it affected us all” and quietly slip back into the old treadmill – but with various new permanent fixtures from “the deadly covid year” e.g. expect some pathological hygiene routines to stay in place. And eventually there will be another outbreak – this time with a more assured media blitz (and imagine that!) and so, over the coming years, the populace will eventually be worn down – especially when you consider the generational impacts as each one rising becomes more accustomed to the new biosecurity state. We are in it for the long haul.

And here I was coming for that note of hope…

I do think that John Steppling has a point, though. He believes that the technocrats are completely delusional and that they will fail because their Towers of Babel are built on complete delusions on what humans are and what technology can be. I don’t know exactly how he imagines that, but I think a good example is the trans movement.

The technocrats grabbed the concept of non-conformist weirdos out of the arms of society’s fringe and turned it into a shiny promise. Anyone can just switch secondary sex organs, just like that! They sold the idea of technology delivering complete salvation, and many bought it. Enough bought it to have tried it and found out the hard way… It was nothing that had been promised… People experienced debilitating medical consequences from insane procedures on healthy body organs. And this real life experience with its technology is the undoing of this ‘promise’. The technocrats can bully the population into saying the right pronouns all they want, but the ideological foundation of the promise is falling apart. And once the ideology falls apart, there’s hope.

I have been cynical of the techno-utopian promise for a while now, especially vis a vis “smart phones” and such, which are the dumbest, stupidest devices of all. I found that no one wanted to hear criticism of their precious phones. But as people experience loneliness, depression, atomization, loss of self control, the ideology of the technocracy is wearing thinner. And if it keeps doing so, there is hope there. You cannot build the biomedical state without the mythological of the magical abilities advanced medicine.

What annoys me most is that even if the technocrats fail because of their delusional views, it is not they who will bear the brunt of that failure, but all of us.
Their frame of mind can always find another short-term bandwagon on which to hop.

It reminds me of Icelandic politics, where today’s Minister of Culture can be the Justice Minister next week, and a year or two later, the Minister of Fisheries, or Finance. As if conflicts of interest were desirable and fashionable.

It’s the ‘you’ll do’ philosophy of governance.

As with everything else today, expertise is now something you are supposed to believe in, even when there’s no evidence for it at all…

Not even the long haul, I fear.
It seems to me there’s no end in sight.

That said, I am not a morose person by nature, and I work towards making something good even better where I can.

For goodness sake. The nightmare right in front of us here is that a single person is the author of virtually every second comment on this thread, and he does what in militaries in wartime people are expressly shot : spreading unmitigated express hopelesness.

No nightmare in history has ever lasted without its intensity being in reverse relation to its longevity. No insane, genocidal campaign in history has ever lasted for more than a few years. No AI / technological power / mad genius exists to make an exception now. There always appears a reaction, i.e. a resistance to every action. You’re mirroring the MSM in that you ‘forget’ the elementary laws of nature just to assert a point.

I’m done with that environment.

What “sceptics” say now could have been said a year ago with perfect validity. Hamsters on wheels may show more sense for progress.

Aren’t you spreading hopefulness! Insulting us in our quest to make sense of a mad world and find ways to hope – so full of joy, aren’t ya.

Saying “it always ended” is about as useful as saying “humans were always corrupt”. Both of these are ways to sweep the nuances of particular situations away, and to lazily declare “nothing to do but whatever, pass the time!” We humans have more agency than that. Let the resistance raise, as is par for the cycle!

What bull. The cycle of human resistance comes out of those who had looked into the darkness and declared “we don’t want that, we won’t stand for that.” It doesn’t come from digging our heads into the sand and saying “shshsh don’t be morose – sometime somewhere after we’ve been to hell twenty times it’ll all be well.” No thanks. That’s a miserable message.

On second thought, I’m sorry I was so harsh. Goodness knows I’m way too quick to jump. Different people deal in different ways…

I think for us here on the comment section, these morbid comments are very comforting because we find comfort in understanding that which we understand in a vague way already – that this whole thing is rotten to the core. So for me, good analysis and conversation nourishes my mind and my spirits, because it makes me feel less alone.

I do understand that not every personality is cut out for this and I can’t fault people for not wanting to stew in it the way some of us here do… If you find hope in taking action, not going along, knowing who the bad guy is, etc, then I respect that.

It’s also a very necessary outlet for our frustrated creativity to draw attention to how appallingly destructive this sick narrative has become, although, as I said, I don’t allow any of this to make me into a more morose person than I am by nature.

That said, I think this bit of Dors’s comment really needs looking at:

“No insane, genocidal campaign in history has ever lasted for more than a few years. No AI / technological power / mad genius exists to make an exception now”

Unfortunately, no insane, genocidal campaign in history has ever before succeeded in taking over the whole world.
This one looks like a remarkable success story to me, and I reckon fighting it is going to be a very arduous campaign for those of us who can be bothered.

There is no such company as ‘Monsanto-Bayer’ it is called Bayer AG.

Correct, however in September 2016, Monsanto agreed to be acquired by Bayer for US$66 billion, who then ditched the Monsanto name.
Now it would be a shame to send a name with such credits as DDT to memory hole wouldn’t it, so I applaud the author for keeping the name in peoples minds

Of course I know that. The order of the names was also wrong, implying that Monsanto bought Bayer or was bigger then Bayer. these types of ‘mistakes’ are never accidental.

In the historic context it recreates the presence of IG Farben, a combine with which the Rockefellers were closely involved. Hence the whispers around the interests behind Gates.

“IG Farben, a combine with which the Rockefellers were closely involved.”

That makes helps to explain this sentence in a well-researched book about the Nazi atomic bomb project:

“By gentleman’s agreement the RAF did not bomb IG Farben and the Luftwaffe did not bomb Imperial Chemical Industries.” — John Irving, The Virus House.
