A tortured, crazy world, living in darkness and oppression is yearinng for a saviour.
Never was there a greater need for salvation.
Rejoice! HE is coming.
Light, love and liberation for all mankind.
How did it all happen?
How did we arrive where we are?
Why have many liberal Western democracies become more tyrannical and totalitarian than we ever thought possible?
I don’t know all the answers but I can promise you that you will at least get some answers in this post.
Event 201 was an infamous tabletop exercise simulating the outbreak of a deadly corona virus pandemic.
Because Event 201 took place in October 2019, months before the outbreak became known to the world, many have speculated that the virus was intentionally released and that the whole pandemic was planned.
This is not necessarily true. What IS true is that the RESPONSE to the pandemic was PLANNED.
There is irrefutable evidence that the wuhan virus was spreading in Italy as early as September 2019. Covid 19 was found in Italian blood samples taken that month for the purpose of cancer research.
It is therefore possible and in my view very likely that the organizers of Event 201 knew at the time about the wuhan virus outbreak.
The purpose of the exercise was to lay the groundwork, to plant the seed of the desired (by the organizers) response to the inevitable pandemic.
Any model, any scenario, is determined by its underlying assumptions and Event 201 is no exception.
The assumptions of Event 201 that would shape the response to the pandemic were as follows.
- A coronavirus emerging in South American pigs was transmitted to humans.
- It was spreading very fast and exponentially (every infected person infected two other persons).
- It had an apocalyptic death rate of 10%
- There was no vaccine available.
- There was an effective aintiviral therapeutic called extranavir (sounds like remdesevir).
However, production and quantitiy was very limited.
At the end of the exercise 65 million people had “died”.
Now, put yourself into the place of one of the participants.
Let’s assume you have the best of intentions and no conflicts of interest.
When the pandemic finally hits merely two months after the exercise, how would your reaction be, with the exercise fresh in your mind?
Wouldn’t you accept very drastic measures, even measures that were unthinkable in liberal democracies until very recently?
In the scenario there is no effective therapeutic that can be produced fast enough in sufficient quantities and the only way out seem to be vaccines.
However, in reality there is an effective therapeutic and prophylactic against coronaviruses.
It’s called Chloraquine and it is produced dirt cheap and in huge quantities in the form of Hydroxychloraquine.
Used for decades as a treatment against malaria and parasites it has been proven to be a very safe and effective drug.
The antiviral efficacy of this drug has been known since at least 2005.
Why then was the scenario based on an unrealistic assumption?
The answer is very simple. Two of the three organizers of Event 201 were the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Neither were interested in a quick end of the virus threat. The former because they wanted to radically change society and economy. the latter because they wanted to push vaccines.
The assumed lethality of the virus made drastic measures acceptable and even necessary. The assumed absence of therapeutics made the risk of experimental vaccines using an unproven technology acceptable.
Among the recommendations of the organizers we read:
“Governments and the private sector should assign a greater priority to developing methods to combat mis- and disinformation prior to the next pandemic response. Governments will need to partner with traditional and social media companies to research and develop nimble approaches to countering misinformation. This will require developing the ability to flood media with fast, accurate, and consistent information.”
The third video below is even more explicit. The speaker talks about REPRESSING information.
I strongly encourage you to watch at least the three videos below (there are 2 additional videos).
As I always say. This is no conspiracy. Conspiracies are done in secret. However, Event 201 is in your face.
You can find all the info, videos, documents and everything on the web site of Event 201. .
I encourage you to read it all, watch it all.
Finally, while watching the videos, sometimes I got the impression that some of the participants were talking about a real virus and not about a hypothetical one.
Segment 1 – Intro and Medical Countermeasures (MCM) Discussion
Segment 4 – Communications Discussion and Epilogue
Segment 5 – Hotwash and Conclusion
Twitter has been a lot of fun lately with Musk dropping one bombshell after another and making the leftist totalitarians heads explode.
Now, I’m not a fan of Musk and I’m keenly aware that Musk is not a saviour. Quite the contrary, he’s dangerous because of his transhumanist ideas.
Musk’s Neuralink is a giant leap towards digital slavery. How so? Once you are connected via the chip in your head to sensors, the cloud, the internet and to almost unlimited computer resources you’ll have superhuman powers. Connected to an infrared sensor, for example, you’ll see in the night. All the amazing new powers and new experiences come at a price.
People will become even more addicted than they are today to their smart phones. To the extent they’ll use these new superpowers and to the extent they depend on these, their brains will atrophy like an unused muscle and they will be unable to live without the chip even if they wanted.
This opens the way to total control of those with the chip in their head.
Still, I have to give Musk his due. He’s a visionary who builds electric cars, rockets and other cool stuff.
Eventually we will have to fight Musk but for the moment, enjoy the show while it goes on.
Man, this dude is brilliant and it’s a joy to behold how he makes the leftists’ heads explode.
If you haven’t heared much of Donald Trump lately, it’s because Musk has replaced Trump for the moment.
Donald Trump was twitter’s biggest attraction. He drove up engagement and traffic on twitter.
Since Donald Trump doesn’t tweet, Musk himself has taken the role of Trump and he seems to have a lot of fun doing it.
In a way that only Trump could do, Musk drives the Left insane by dropping “politically incorrect” tweets and by confronting the woke ideology, thus driving up engagement and traffic.
Smart business move.
This is HUGE. The prominent critic of the Covid response Dr. R,W. Malone has been unbanned just 2 hours ago.
Looks like other vaccine sceptics have been unbanned on twitter too.
This is more important than anything the House Republicans could do. It’s a real turning point and a challenge to the security state, the medical industrial complex, the WEF and other very, very powerful players.
It’s going to get very dangerous for Elon Musk.
I have to give it to him. He really has cojones.
“Land in sight!” yelled the man from atop the mast. As you would expect, after many months at sea his voice was full of excitement and joyous expectation.
“It’s only a matter of hours and we are at home, lads. Home! Sweet Callonisi!” said king Archon, brave warrior and hero of the Megalonesian war. He couldn’t hide his excitement which was mostly owed to the imminent reunion with his wife, Queen Elpida. They had been 11 years away from home, 10 years at war and another year at sea. Their voyage on the vast Oceanos was as dangerous as the war itself. They battled with storms, with hunger, heat and thirst and yet they endured and overcame all challenges because of their unbreakable spirit, chiefly the spirit of their great leader Archon.
Archon’s ships sailed into the port that was exactly at the place where they expected it to be. When they put their feet onto the land, king Archon ordered the harbour master: “Send a messenger to the queen and tell her highness that the king has arrived and that she shall prepare a banqued worthy of a returning king and a conquering hero. For every year of our absence let there be a barrel of extra wine. Let everyone be dressed in their finest garb. Call all the music players and jugglers and proclaim to every person, beggar and prince alike, that today is a day to rejoice in the return of the king and his valiant men at our magnificent palace. Spare no expenses! Go!”
The harbour master didn’t move. He asked: “Who are you?”.
“Who I am?” replied the king angrily. “I am YOUR KING, THE RULER OF CALLONISI!”.
For a painfully long second the harbour master kept silent. Right at the moment the king was about the explode, the harbour master said “Forgive me, your highness, but this is not the island of Callonisi. This is the island of Faringos.”
“You are lying!” shot the king back. “Turn around and look! Right at the center there is the majestic mount Callimonas. At the left there are the massive Kefalos rocks. At the right there is the lovely, fruitful plane of Tingaki. Right between the plane and the mountains there is the village of Arantos right beside lake Malinos. I can tell you what is on the other side of the mountains. I know every hill, every creek, every lake and every village on the island. I’ve played, hunted and travelled across all of the island since I was a boy when my father, the great king Selinas, ruled. Now, go!”
By now the harbour was full of people, as it is always the case when ships arrive. Curiosity and the need to exchange news, ideas, gossip and merchandise were irresistable urges.
Equally great was the urge to keep order and so a detachment of hoplites had also arrived.
After a short exchange of words with the harbour master the detachment’s commander declared “This is the island of Faringos and our ruler is king Meronax.”
At this point it became clear to king Archon that he would have to fight if he wanted to topple the liar and usurper Meronax.
As for himself, king Archon was ready and willing to fight but he knew that there were many cowards and traitors among the upper ranks. Many of them he knew already but his spymaster was wispering the names of some he didn’t know in his ears.
Some of the cowards and traitors had been payed with gold by Meronax and were ready to stab him in the back at the first opportunity.
The King knew that he could count on most of his soldiers but he couldn’t win a fight without his upper ranks
“I know you are lying” said the King to the commander of the detachment. He ordered his men to board the ships again.
The king summoned the council of the stratigoi, the generals, to his ship.
After the king’s polemarch (supreme military leader) had opened the council, it became quickly clear that the cowards and the traitors agreed with Meronax. They argued that they had made a navigation error and that this was not their homeland but a different island. The cowards did so because they were too afraid to fight. The traitors did so because the didn’t want the rightfull king to take the throne since they were paid handsomely by Meronax.
However, there was also a faction of men who simply suffered from self-delusion.
“Had we only a different navigator! Had we only Neoagros! He knew the right course” exclaimed one of them.
“No, Kleombrotos should be navigator! He had brought us successfully to Megalonesia” interjected another one.
“We should have listened to Aristides and turn west instead of turning east after the isthmus of the cannibals.” said one of the traitors cunningly. (That route would surely bring them to the wrong place).
“We should have turned north at the island of Xerimos!” contended one of the cowards.
Of course, all of the cowards, all of the traitors and some of the self-delusional ones thought but dared not say “We need a different king”
When the council fell silent for a brief moment, a weak and fearful voice could be heared. It was the shipboy’s voice.
“MMMmy kkkking” he stammered but then he fell silent, too afraid to speak. After all, he was the lowliest in rank and the very fact that he had dared to speak without being asked to do so was an impertinence of the first order. Nevertheless, his loyalty to the king and to the simple soldiers as well as the sheer nonsense that was uttered by these men of the loftiest rank had impelled him to speak.
Now, however, fear overcame him and he was unable to utter a single word.
“Speak!” thundered the king.
“MMmy kking” the boy continued. “All ttthe ccourse corrections that are proposed are moot if wwwe don’t know our true location. If we don’t know our true location we cannot say how we deviated from the correct course or even if we deviated at all. Ifff Meronax lies then we need nnno course correction. WWWe have arrrived at our destination.”
“Perfect logic.” said the king while a big smile came over all of his face. Then he continued with a mild voice “My boy, you are destined for greatness. Henceforth you will be a member of my personal staff.”
The king turned his look towards the generals and an expression of deep disgust was visible in his face.
It was true. He couldn’t win with this bunch of traitors, cowards, backstabbers and fools.
With an abrupt gesture King Archon indicated that the council had ended.
“We will return to the last location that we know to be on the right path. From there we wiil travel again to our homeland. Polemarch, prepare the ships for the journey.”
Archon’s heart was heavy. Of course, he knew that they would end up here again, here at the same place.
His only hope was, that he could replace as many of the useless, treasonous generals as possible while his faithful soldiers would not become too dispirited. After all, they knew what he knew. They would follow him and fight ferociously, not because he was their king but because they had the same goals that he had. These simple men, however, were not stupid. They wouldn’t repeat the same useless thing forever.
This little story reflects the current state of America’s Republican party.
Unlike Plato’s ship of fools, the fools here are the “experts”, the generals.
I leave it to the reader to figure out who is who and what is what. After all, what’s the point of robbing you of all the fun?
Horror movies are usually fictional. This documentary though is scarier than any horror movie I’ve ever seen.
Now, the best documentaries are also entertaining and this movie is one of these kind of movies. Dramatization and evocation of feelings can be used and are being used to manipulate the viewers. You can critizise this movie for being one-sided or for using overdramatization but the underyling data is, to my knowledge, true.
WARNING: Contains images of dead bodies and their body parts.
In this video Dr. John Campbell discusses the findings of a peer-reviewed study from Italy which shows irrefutable evidence that the wuhan virus (aka Covid 19) was spreading in Italy as early as September 3, 2019.
The study is based on blood samples taken in 2019 for prospective cancer research and tested later for the wuhan virus.
To say that the study has HUGE implications is an understatement.
Never mind that the entire history of the covid pandemic has to be rewritten but a high proportion of the positive tests were taken from asymptomatic persons which leads to two possible conclusions:
- The infection fatality rate IFR is way lower than previously thought.
- The covid 19 tests are complete garbage.
The study strongly supports Professor Ioannidis from Stanford who argued that the infection fatality rate was very low, meaning that the virus was not as deadly as the panic and hysteria at the time would make you believe.
This brings me to the latest calls for a “pandemic amnesty” by Emily Oster in The Atlantic.
She calls for an amnesty on the basis that the pro-lockdown, pro-mask mandates and pro-vaccine mandate people didn’t know many things about the virus at the time and that they acted with good intentions. Both are blatand lies.
Professor Ioannidis, a stellar scientist, is one of the most cited if not the most cited scientist in the world. Yet, he was either ignored or viciously maligned.
He’s not the only scienist that got this abominable treatment. He’s just the most prominent one.
Countless scientists who strayed from the covid orthodoxy shared the same fate.
You didn’t know, Mrs. Oster? Hell, yes. You did know but you chose to ignore the science.
The whole response to the pandemic was based on two premises.
- The wuhan virus is much deadlier than the seasonal flu.
- Lockdowns, mask mandates etc. could slow the spread of covid 19.
Both premises were completely false.
The wuhan virus is roughly as deadly as the flu. Therefore, all draconian measures in response to it were never warranted.
More importantly, the spread of a virus that was already spreading for FIVE MONTHS could not be stopped or slowed down by any of these measures. It was too late for that.
You f***ed the world up for no good reason.
Makes a lot of sense to do a study like the one from Italy BEFORE you subject the world to all these draconian measures, doesn’t it?
Why was it never done?
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the biggest bombshell:
The Italian study was published in October 2021.
Again, it has been completely ignored for a year.
Let that sink in.
This post is my darkest and scariest post I’ve written so far.
My intentention is not to scare you but to warn and prepare you.
To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
I’m no prophet and everything I write are my own conclusions based on my observations and my analysis.
I’d rather be wrong and make a fool of myself than be right and see the expected disaster become reality.
This is also my last post for at least the next months. I have to take care of some urgent private business which will take up much of my time. Nothing to worry. Just a lot of work.
Also, I will have to focus all my energies to prepare for the coming winter. Under normal circumstances that wouldn’t be a big thing but, as you might know, here in Germany we have not only a completely incompetent goverment but also an evil goverment which is deliberately driving this country with Europe’s most powerful economy against a concrete wall.
Germany is on it’s way to become a sh*thole country and many disastrous effects are already felt but the worst is yet to come. Today I read in a local newspaper that they fear a “winter of rage”. Yes, it is this bad. The goverment is fully aware of what’s coming but it doesn’t consider for one second changing course.
This is a good segue to Tricia’s great post Upside Down Clown World.
The one sentence in her post that struck me is this one:
“The negative results of these bad policies are not mistakes by people who mean well, they are baked in on purpose.”
We are way past “They make bad policies because they are stupid morons.”
We would have to throw Occam’s razor out the window, together with all reason and logic, if we ascribed all these bad policies to mere stupidity or just to mistakes.
The fact that the same bad policies are implemented in almost all countries of the Western world makes it virtually impossible to believe that they are implemented because all the leaders of all these countries are stupid and that they all make the same mistakes.
It’s reasonable to assume that some countries would make different policies with better outcomes for their people.
The fact that it isn’t so tells us that these policies are globally coordinated or that the leaders of the Western world share for the most part similar world views and ideologies. Most likely it’s a combination of both. While some countries like Australia and New Zealand have gone to extreme measures others are slower and less extreme.
The implementation of these “common policies” varies in degree and speed of implementation from country to country but the general direction is the same everywhere.
When the phrase “pandemic of the unvaccinated” was used for the first time in the USA, days, if not hours later the exact same phrase was used in Germany. Same goes for other phrases and slogans. Coincidence? Not likely!
No conspiracies required. Just a bunch of fellow travellers who think alike and who copy from each other.
Our goverments are at war with us.
This is a very tough pill to swallow but it is true. It’s not a tough pill for those of us who didn’t trust our goverments to begin with but for those who did it’s like being abused by their own parents. They behave like a child that is being abused by a parent and that wants to believe that the parent is abusing and tormenting it because the parent is making an error, is incompetent or doesn’t know better. The poor child wants to believe that the parent loves it, that the parent has good intentions and wants to do what’s best for it but that the parent just goes the wrong way about it.
The very thought that the parent is evil and wants to hurt and torment the child is so painful for the child that it rationalizes the parent’s behaviour. For the same reason and in the same way many rationalize our goverments’ destructive behaviours. They ascribe their destructive policies to stupidity and incompetence when any rational analysis should tell them otherwise. Even in a bunch of absolutely incompetent morons, just by sheer dumb luck, one of them should from time to time do the right thing. The fact that they all fail and that they all fail in the same way, is proof that the failure is intentional.
For many people the thought that those we have entrusted with doing what is best for us are actively and intentionally and with the full knowledge of the consequences engaged in policies that hurt us, impoverish us, make us sick, kill us, take our freedoms away and trample on our rights is too monstrous and painful to think.
Of course, there are too many reasons to mention here why even those who don’t trust goverment refuse to see what’s going on.
We are at war. We are in WW3.
It’s not a kinetic war between countries but a war in every other sense between a global “elite” and the populations of all Western countries. This war is waged as an economic war and as an information war primarily in the Western world. The 3rd world is a secondary theater of the war and the 3rd world’s suffering caused by it is not only collateral damage but it can and most likely will be used as a weapon to advance the agenda of our global “elites”.
It is a world war because it is global in scope. Too many fail to see it because they are still stuck to seeing what is happening in their country through the lense of national politics. In America it’s Democrats vs. Republicans, Liberals vs. Conservatives and Biden vs. Trump. In Germany it is SPD/Green Party vs. CDU, leftists vs. centrists and Merz vs. Scholz and Habeck.
The real divide is between those who want international bodies and institutions to take precedence over national sovereignity and those who believe that nations should be free to chart their own course determined only by the will of their people.
It is between those who see sovereign nation states as a dangerous relic and an impediment to a better, a new world order and those who see the nation state as the entitiy that is best suited to look after the interest and to express the will of people who are sharing the same geography and who are bound by a common identity, history and culture.
It is between those who believe that the masses of “little people” should not be allowed to have their way if it goes agoinst the vision of the global “elite” that knows what’s best for all and those who believe that the will of the majority must be respected.
It is between the collctivists who believe that there should be no limits to the things the state can do to the individual for the “common good” and those who believe that individual rights, basic human rights and liberties shall not be infinged and that exeptionsc to this rule should meet extraordinary high hurdles.
It is between the totalitarians who believe that the state should have the right to meddle with every aspect, every area of life and those who believe that there are areas which the state has no business meddling with.
Finally, it is between those who would trade freedom for safety and those who cherish freedom enough to be willing to accept risks and insecurity if they can be free.
Bottom line: Champions of the global “elite’s” goals are primarily on the Left but they’re also on the Right. They’re in the Democrat party and the Republican party and in the radical universities as well as in the corporate world and big business.
The ideology of our global “elites” is most comprehensively described in the webpages of the WEF, the World Economic Forum.
Before the pandemic, like most normal people, I knew almost nothing about the WEF. All I knew was that once every year the powerful people from politics, goverments and business met at the WEF in Davos, Switzerland to discuss world politics and economy. It was during the pandemic that the WEF put itself in the limelight.
More and more you could hear and read about the idea of using the pandemic as an opportunity to implement a “Great Reset” coming from powerful people and political leaders, one of them being Ursula von der Leyen, President of the EU, which is an immensely powerful position. She is also Member of the Board of Trustees of the WEF.
In July 9, 2020 the book “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, written by non other than WEF founder Klaus Schwab, was published.
Basically, the idea of the “Great Reset” was to use the pandemic crisis to implement radical change in economy, politics and goverment. The two main pillars of this radical change are the shift from shareholder capitalism to stakeholder capitalism and the implementation of radical measures against Climate Change. The WEF jumped on the pandemic crisis because it saw that in this kind of crisis things were possible that would otherwise have never been accepted by the worlds populations. The WEF’s agenda is so radical that it will never be accepted by a majority of voters.
The only way to force the WEF’s vision upon the world is through crisis, emergency and economic distress. The pandemic opened my eyes and the eyes of many other people. Whatever illusions we had about our goverments, they vanished.
As it turned out and as it is more and more revealed, we were lied to and manipulated. Nothing our goverments did made medical sense. Lockdowns, masks mandates and “vaccines” did nothing for the public health.
The measures that our goverments mandated brought untold economic destruction, pain, misery, tyranny and death, yes death. By maligning and then suppressing therapeutics and prophylactics like ivermectin and chloraquine hundreds of thousands of people died needlessly.
Why did our goverments bring such massive suffering upon their populations?
As I’ve said. It’s almost impossible that our “elites” did it by mistake or because of incompetence. If it was by mistake how is it that they all made the same “mistakes”, that they always landed on the side of totalitarian, authoritarian measures?
The evidence is clear.
We have the statements of the WEF, of Klaus Schwab and of many powerful Western leaders who were and who are advocating for a “Great Reset”, “Build Back Better” or some variation of those two.
The tyrannical, authoritarian and totalitarian measures employed through the pandemic are exactly the kind of measures you would need to employ in order to enforce the radical climate change policies.
Many goverments are bebinning to implement these radical policies.
The EU has commited itself to a “Eurpean Green Deal” and America is also in the beginning stages of the same kind of deal.
Our global “elites” were not interested in a quick end of the pandemic. The longer it went on the more of the measures that make the “Great Reset” possible were implemented and the more the populations were conditioned to accept the loss of their basic rights as the new normal.
So, everything that went on and everything that is going on advances the goals of our global “elites”.
If they don’t create crises themselves, they sure as hell use them to their advantage.
They have created an artificial energy crisis which is wrecking the world’s economies and which will cause famines in the 3rd world. Inevitably, this will cause massive waves of refugees fleeing hunger and death.
What do you think will happen when these waves will hit the USA and Europe? Mark my words. They will claim that the famines are caused by climate change and they will declare a climate emergency. You know the rest.
The economic destruction caused by the pandemic response and by the artificially induced energy crisis as well as the astronomical amount of debt piled up during the pandemic may very well be the end of our economies.
What do you think would happen if the Western countries were to go bankrupt? I believe that a new world currency would be offered as a solution but that solution would come with strings attached.
It would be the Greece model. Democracy is dead in Greece. The bankrupt country accepted the help of the EU but in exchange it doesn’t matter any more what the Greek people vote. The EU pays and Greece has to do what the EU wants no matter what the Greek people wants.
If there’s one document I would like you to read it’s this document published in the prestigious magazine “nature”. You will understand what’s potentially in store for us.
At this point I have to cut this post short.
We are at war whether we like it or not and we must fight evil without becoming evil. We must fight hard but we must also show mercy whenever we can. We must not lose our humanity.
We must not use violence except for self-defense.
There are tough times ahead and some of us may not survive but as the bible tells us, death is not the worse that can happen to us. There are far worse things than death.
The bible also tells us again and again: “Do not be afraid”.
Strangely enough, the worse things got these last years, the more the world was tortured by evil, the more my faith in God was strengthened.
Honestly, i cannot tell you why that is.
All I can tell you is that I have a feeling of complete calm in my heart.
What must come will come.
Do not be afraid.
Anarchy cannot exist longer than 5 seconds.
In the real world, in the absence of goverment, authority and the rule of law, the law of the jungle kicks in and the strongest, most ruthless warlords are battling for control. Justice, rule of law and consent by the governed don’t exist. It’s pure tyranny.
That’s why we need goverment. The only question is, how much goverment do we need? How much power do we give to goverment?
The Left does not trust the individual to run his own life because the flaws of the individual lead to all kinds of real or perceived problems like social injustice etc.
Therefore, in the view of the Left the state has to run and control everything.
But there is a fundamental error in this argument and it is this: Any state, no matter what kind of state, is run by a collection of individual persons with their own flaws and that is why no state can be the more just, better entity that the Left claims that it is.
To believe, as the Left claims that it does, that the state is better than the individual, it has to ascribe divine attributes of perfection that the individual lacks to the state, which makes the Left’s word view a religion. I call it etatheism (etat = state), the deification of the state.
Ironically, the people who have more faith in the state than the Americans, the Europeans, should have the least faith in the state because it was here in Europe, in Hitler’s Germany and in Stalin’s Russia where the state murdered its own citizens by the millions. It was in Mussolini’s fascist Italy and in Franco’s Spain where the state oppressed its citizens. It was in communist Eastern Europe where the state deprived its citizens of the most basic human rights and where it crushed the opposition with tanks and soldiers.
Flaws of individuals can have harmful and undesired effects but flaws of individuals who are collectively running states are magnified by orders of magnitude because of the state’s almost unlimited power and reach (compared to a single individual).
It is because of this great potential of the state to cause destruction and to prevent or diminish prosperity that the state needs to be as least powerful as possible and to interfere as least as possible in the individual’s affairs.
Leftists will, of course, counter my argument by saying that we can eliminate man’s flaws by creating a new system that will create a new man.
But again, the Left is stuck with the same problem. In order to create a flawless, perfect system which eliminates the flaws of the individual, the individuals who are creating the system have to be flawless and perfect themselves.
Again, one has to ascribe divine attributes of perfection to the persons devising such a system.
American political scientist Rudolph Rummel coined the term Democide to describe the killing of people by their own goverment. According to his definition in the 20th century, one of the bloodiest in human history, more people were killed by democide than by war.
Give an evil man a gun and he can kill tens, perhaps hundreds of people.
Put an evil man in goverment and he can kill millions and ruin whole nations.
People give power to goverment because they don’t trust their neighbour, envy their neighbour’s wealth and success or because they fear their neighbour.
Ironically, by giving power to goverment they are giving power to their neighbour because goverment IS their neighbour.
This is what the people who want to give all the power to the goverment don’t understand.
James Madison said “If Men were angels, no government would be necessary.”
However, the very reason why we need goverment is the same reason why we need to keep goverment as small as possible with as little power as possible.
One aspect of the whole pandemic response that was not appreciated enough was the economic devastation that it caused. Those who were supporting the lockdowns either ignored the damage caused by lockdowns, were just too stupid to understand or they justified it by saying that any measure that was stopping the virus must be taken because they were motivated by pure panic due to a deluge of panic porn created by the media. I have tried to warn people but they would, in their state of panic and fear, still accept and support lockdowns.
The idea that one could shut down major sectors of the economy without serious consequences is idiotic and yet goverments around the world deliberately kept silent about these consequences. What they essentially did was to bribe the population. Those who temporarily lost their jobs and those who had to close their businesses were given money by the goverment. Had the goverments not done so, they would have had a rebellion on their hands. You cannot take someone’s livelyhood and leave that person twisting in the wind.
Where did the goverments get the money from? They could not increase taxes because that would make the sharp contraction of the economy that they themselves caused much worse and because, again, many people would not accept lockdowns if they felt the negative consequences immidiately.
So, the goverments incurred a lot of debt, essentially printing a ton of money. From 2019 to 2021 the money supply M1 in the Eurozone grew by 25%. In the US it was much worse. Inflation would be unavoidable as soon as the economy would open up and the people could spend all the money they were not able to spend during the lockdowns.
Inflation and destroyed/disrupted supply chains were the results of the lockdowns.

If we all thought that we could finally go back to normal, we were sorely disappointed.
That’s our own fault.
Why didn’t we listen to our “elites” when they told us that there would be no back to normal? Why didn’t we listen to guys like Gavin Newsom, Justin Trudeau, Boris Johnson, Joe Biden and Klaus Schwab?
Gavin Newsom and Trudeau literally told us that there wouldn’t be a return to normal but that we would “Build Back Better” and have a “Great Reset” resulting in more equity and a greener society. “Build Back Better” was on Boris Johnson’s, Joe Biden’s and Klaus Schwab’s lips all the time. They were not kidding.
When everything seemed to go back to normal, just “coincidentally” and very conveniently for our “elites” the war in Ukraine broke out.
Understand that this war makes many things worse but it is NOT, I repeat, NOT the cause of our problems. The cause of our problems are our “elites” who use the war as an excuse for everything they are causing.
Before the pandemic global oil production was 83 to 84 million barrels per day.
Current oil production is 80 million barrels per day. In the US alone, production fell by 2.2 million.
This has nothing to do with Russia but it is the result of the build-back-better-crowd’s war against fossil fuels. In the midst of an energy crisis our “elites” refuse to increase fossil fuel production and they refuse also in many cases to use fossil fuels for the production of electricity.
Understand that the current shortage of energy is artificially created. It is part of the “Great Reset”, the transition to a “green” economy.
During the covid pandemic the UN warned that the economic effects of the worldwide lockdowns could cause hunger and increased poverty in the 3rd world.
The negative effects of the lockdowns are bad enough but the effects that the explosion in energy prices and hence, exploding fertlizer prices have for food production are devastating for the 3rd world.
Don’t get me wrong. We are suffering and we will be suffering even more because of this but while we might be able to absorb higher food prices, many people in the 3rd world who are already on the edge of starvation will die.
As if all this wasn’t bad enough our “elites” make it even worse by artificially reducing food production in the EU by essentially forcing farmers to produce less for the sake of “saving the climate”. This will have have huge implications.
Our “elites” are doing this deliberately. They know what they are doing and they know that millions will die because of it. They don’t care.
The price for the green utopia is the green death.
The green death will be followed by the green human tsunami. Millions of people will try to flee from hunger and death.
What’s happening now at the US southern border is bad but it will pale in comparison to the human wave that is to come.
The same is true for Europe. The flood of refugees in 2015 will look like a picnic compared to the flood that is to come.
Needless to say that many will die on their way to the US and Europe.
Green death indeed.
