Virus #26:Chapter 9 lessons learnt from the COVIDs; people were amoebas

Chapter 9 “lessons learnt from the COVIDs; people are amoebas”

At least a toddler has some power of rational thought including the power to stand up to parental dictatorship. That may manifest itself in stubbornness, anger or temper tantrums hence the expression “terrible twos”.

The overwhelming majority of the population sucked up the steady stream of propaganda shoved down their throats by advertisements from the politicos and reinforced by a media that lost my respect very quickly for parroting the party line. Like Radio Moscow in the old Iron Curtain days. And the blind acceptance of the media campaign knew (at least initially) no differentiation on class lines or educational levels. It permeated their brains like they were brainless amoebas. Less thoughtful than a toddler.

Doctors, lawyers, accountants, construction workers and those in the service industry humbly bowed down to the exhortations of “social distancing”, “stay at home”, “stop the spread” and countless hackneyed phrases developed by the politicos and medicos supporting them.

Anyone voicing any opposition was treated as an uncooperative conspiracy theorist. Anyone suggesting a cheap fix to boost immunity like Vitamin C and D was a dupe of the conspiracy theorists despite the fact that there was ample medical research supporting the fact that these vitamins were actually used by China in the first wave and then adopted by some American physicians initially in the Long Island, New York hospital community then globally.

The majority of physicians in the Western World hitched their wagon to the hope of a vaccine or cure developed by Big Pharma with financing by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.   And a minority of physicians, like myself, realized by the time it took to develop a vaccine the virus would have mutated rendering the vaccine futile. Our minority view was that a strong immune system created by a healthy diet and lifestyle bolstered by some key supplements was the best defence. Yet the masses were so conditioned by Western medicine to believe that Big Pharma products were the answer they failed to see that Big Pharma makes huge profits not by developing a cure but perpetuating their profit by developing and selling drugs that managed, into eternity, symptoms but never cured them. Why this blind faith when Big Pharma had failed to deliver a cancer of Alzheimer’s fix despite some 85 billion USD spent of finding the magic bullet.

When the second COVID-19 wave hit with devastating impact some of the terror stricken and obedient masses became more difficult to control as hungry and displaced persons are often harder to rule especially when desperation began to nudge obedience and money to subsidize the unemployed and displaced ran out hence the development in the United States and other countries of what we can generically call “Fuck the Vulnerable Movement”. You could kind of see this coming with the economic havoc caused by the first COVID-19 wave where BMW’s and Mercedes’s were in the food line pick up.

By the time Virus # 26 descended a deep political polarization had been growing throughout the globe. But more about that later.

I and many others wondered if the slick political-medico machine had faced massive resistance at the outset and social distancing had been rejected and herd immunity developed whether the second wave of COVID-19 would have been so crippling. However amoebas simply sucked all the politico-medico mantras up setting the stage for a slaughter. “Stay Safe” at the end of the day meant “Be Prepared to Die”. The assassinations of many of the politico-medicos was too little to late for the millions that died because they had “Stayed Safe”.
