Mass Hysteria

Below is the full video. Take special note how Noam Chomsky, an influential Linguistics Professor at MIT, makes use of logical rhetorical devices in his argument.

Right now the internet is tightening up. Really, we weren't supposed to have it to begin with. It basically fell off the back of a government truck. It's cold war technology. It was made to be invincible; like the mythical Hydra, cut off a head here and two more grow back. Remove a video and many more spring up. Track something through their IP address, set up a VPN. Start putting together your own personal archive before it's all sent down the memory hole.

Throughout history humanities most fundamental fight has been for access to information. Priests translating bibles from Latin. Nathaniel Rothschild falsely reporting that Napoleon had bested Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. And the lies told during the first case for National Security to be invoked:

America has not had a good president since Jimmy Carter.

And the last read president we had was JFK.

He begins his 'Pax-Americana' art at about 2:27 - this is powerful - shortly before his death JFK passed 3 Executive Orders:

1) to pull the Military Advisors out of Vietnam (who were there to help the French in controlling their colony)
2) Audit the Federal Reserve (which is as Federal as Federal Express - actually made up of 138 banks headed by BIS)
3) Shatter the CIA into 1,000 pieces and scatter them about the 4 winds (ultimately making them responsible to the Joint Chiefs, after refusing Air Support during the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion)

For assuming he was the actual President; beholden to the People, rather than perverse Special Interests, for such hubris, he was shot dead in the street like a rabid dog...

Anyways, I digress, back to Mass Hysteria...

Right now, there is a culling of information on the internet as well as a potential population culling of the planet. But maybe they have our best interests at heart. The handful of billionaires that own more wealth than practically everyone. The Ruling Class, our Self-Appointed Betters who are currently hiding on some remote island, in a luxurious fall-out shelter, with their own personal physician...

There has never been a point in history where I've agreed more with the 1960's political slogan, 'Eat the Rich'...

Anyways, I digest...

Let me be clear, you have every right to challenge me on any of this. Just know, it's not enough to say that's not true because the government told me so.


Where did the COVID-19 virus come from?

What will tge future look like?

"Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

State and local authoritarians love panic as well. The mayor of Champaign, Illinois, signed an executive order declaring the power to ban the sale of guns and alcohol and cut off gas, water, or electricity to any citizen. The governor of Ohio just essentially closed his entire state.

The chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration is without a doubt Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health. Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis.

On Face the Nation, Fauci did his best to further damage an already tanking economy by stating, “Right now, personally, myself, I wouldn’t go to a restaurant.” He has pushed for closing the entire country down for 14 days.

Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States? By contrast, tuberculosis, an old disease not much discussed these days, killed nearly 1.6 million people in 2017. Where’s the panic over this?

If anything, what people like Fauci and the other fearmongers are demanding will likely make the disease worse. The martial law they dream about will leave people hunkered down inside their homes instead of going outdoors or to the beach where the sunshine and fresh air would help boost immunity. The panic produced by these fearmongers is likely helping spread the disease, as massive crowds rush into Walmart and Costco for that last roll of toilet paper.

The madness over the coronavirus is not limited to politicians and the medical community. The head of the neoconservative Atlantic Council wrote an editorial this week urging NATO to pass an Article 5 declaration of war against the COVID-19 virus! Are they going to send in tanks and drones to wipe out these microscopic enemies?

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back."
