(a month long Lock-down)
It has been over three months, that this pandemic has slowly spread across continents and the global media. We are being hammered, right down to our collective unconscious, about the dread and horror of this pandemic. This is the type of thing that nobody likes to go “viral” – in the common lingo of today’s world. However, behind all the blame game and social media sensation, there is a dark truth that stays lurking in the shadows of powerful groups that actually are the event managers of this planet.
No…Its not a conspiracy theory, rather an astute judgement made from things known and proposals discussed across various platforms by several people.
For sure, we must practice caution and not let run our imaginations run for the wild-lands. However, the bitter pill that we must swallow at this point is that we are living in a world where Human Genome sequencing, its interpretations and linkage between the chemical and the physical functionality of Human Genes.
Any major scientific study as above, is like the discovery of fire by our great -great -great Uncle Ape. It could burn you along with your kith and kin, if wielded the wrong way or it could become a useful method to cook, to light up the dark corners and to ward of dangerous animals. For instance, Manhattan Project started with United States’ desire to have a bomb, with the devastating power not known by anyone on this planet before.
The idea behind this directed research in nuclear physics was not to help improve the lives of the people with free electricity from the nuclear power plants, rather to make thousands of atomic bombs during the cold war era to start an Armageddon, so to speak. Are we going to do similar things with the power that would be in our hands, with the very chemical code of human life explored and understood to its finer details?
Hans Zinsser, a U.S. bacteriologist and a historian, wrote about the threat from the biological agents in the following words:
Infectious disease is one of the great tragedies of all living beings – the struggle for the existence between different forms of life… incessantly the pitiless war is wages across the species, without a quarter or armistice – a nationalism of species against species.-Rats, Lice and History (Social Science Classics Series)
Routledge; Revised edition (2007)
For his time and age, he said the truth as he saw it. The fact that humankind will never be able to overcome or completely protect itself against the onslaught of disease causing biological agents co-existing with us in the nature. It is as true now as it was back then, however, with a new addition that we humans are capable of arming (genetic manipulation in the BioLabs) those unseen micro-organisms like little soldiers of doom and wreak merciless bio-terror on the unsuspecting population. The whole world has become a battleground for the global powers of these times.
Historically, the course of human history had been altered majorly by epidemics. These epidemics scarred the human life more than the wars and devastation caused by other natural events. With the new world having become a global village due to economic globalization, the infected people can move across continents within days of getting infected. Thus, we have begun the age of pandemics -either natural or man-made. The urban centers are highly vulnerable to become epicenters of these global pandemics due to high population density. We should have been prepared since the outbreak of SARS and the Bird-flu -at least the first world countries.
Back in the days of WW-I, Germany had created an ambitious biological warfare program. They started a covert operation of infecting the livestock and their feed via the neutral trading partner countries. Two pure cultures of bacteria, Bacillus anthrasis and Burkholderia mallei, were prepared to infect the Romanian sheep that was to be exported to Russia. However, before this could be done, the samples were confiscated from the German diplomatic staff and was identified at the Bucharest Institute of Bacteriology and Pathology. In the span of a few months in the years 1917 – 1918, these two strains were injected into the livestock of middle east (present day Jordan-Iraq-Syria) and Argentine, which was intended to be used for ration of the allied forces.
Although, the Geneva protocols, established 1925, prohibit the use of the weapons of mass destruction, such as the poisonous chemical agents, biological agents and other such methods that cause the death and destruction on a large scale, we are still perhaps not in a mood to muster out all such horrible stuff. Actually, most of the participants in the Geneva protocols, begun their own bio-weapons programs right after the end of the first world war.
United states had begun its offensive bio-weapons program in 1942. Biological agents developed by Japanese labs were unleashed upon the inhabitants of 11 Chinese cities by contaminating the water supply and food items from areal spray. Over the ensuing decades of the cold war, the testing guinea pigs for many bio-agents developed have been the unsuspecting natives of central-Africa.
Why is this danger of weaponized microbes more pronounced now?
There, are two major key factors, one is the asymmetric nature of warfare between the competing nations, especially between the No. 1 and the No. 2 of this planet. In a battle for global supremacy and not willing to fight a mundane war; U.S. and China had started a series of economic maneuvers to create a stranglehold difficult for the other to break.
The U.S. chose the method of economic sanctions and denial of doing business (DoB) to the Chinese state owned technological and manufacturing behemoths. It was a serious problem for the CCP, and more so for President Xi.
Then, the Hongkong protests were going on for months and the Chinese were unable to control it even with the limited use of police baton. The persistent coverage by the western media of this “Hongkong spring” was generating a huge amount of ignominy for the Chinese. The spread of this virus as a global pandemic has solved a lot of issues for the CCP; although, it has in its wake, left many uneasy questions yet to be answered by the Chinese establishment, to everybody’s satisfaction.
The trade war unleashed by No. 1 upon the No. 2 probably had a blow-back as this pandemic CoViD-19 (first epicenter is the vicinity of Wuhan Bio-labs in Hubei province of China). As always, we are speciously told, as in the past, that the Bats have been the cause of this pandemic. The Chinese have been eating exotic animals since decades now and anyone who believes this nonsense has his – belfry full of bats.
However, as mentioned earlier, the truth lies somewhere hidden from the controlled news channel propaganda across the globe. Possibly, we may never know what led to this situation and the inter-linked chain of events that helped its spread. However, we are certain that the W.H.O. (sarcastically being called by many on the social media as the Wuhan Health Organization) has failed us all in fulfilling its promise and carrying out its duties as per its charter. The economic costs involved are massive.
Nobody is innocent in this game of gaining global dominance. Each one has its share of sins…and really big ones!
Second, is the role of global business interests of the Big Pharma and bio-chemical industries. Are we going to live in a future where diseases will be manufactured and the medicines provided by giant medical corporations? Much like the computer viruses and the Anti-virus and Anti-malware etc. industry. We are being touted the promise of designer babies and genetic medicines and all the wonderful things in the media, however, nobody seems to be curious enough probe the belly of the dragon!
The algorithm of the 1% strategy:
Design a problem- create Panic- Provide Solution- Make huge profits. [Repeat]
Then, there is the danger of the islamists using this method for their future warfare with the non-muslim world. In his -800 odd pages novel, ‘I am Pilgrim‘, the author Terry Hayes envisions such a scenario, where the jihadist actually is trying to start a biological attack on the west ( the U.S.). Again, this is seen as a part of their asymmetric warfare strategy against an incredibly powerful adversary. The whole plot is woven around the vaccine resistant strain of a virus stolen from the Syrian bio-labs.
The world that we shall live in, after all this is over, would either be a much better and sane one than what we had in 2019, or we are heading for Terra dystopia with full speed of our technological and scientific progress . The need of this hour is to awaken the spirit of compassion and a sense of satisfaction, specifically among the rich and the elite. They are the ones who need the spiritual evolution the most because they are the ones who decide the destiny of all the mortals on this planet. If they fall below the level of human dignity and character, then all are doomed. They need to come out of their ‘God-complex‘ and live a fuller life of inclusiveness rather than a constipated existence of the confinement i.e. –me and mine.
