Did China give us COVID-19 knowing it was no worse than severe flu; confident of exactly what weak-minded Governments in the West would inevitably do?

January 6, 2021 Leave a comment

Much earlier in the Pandemic, I wrote about the stupidity of trying to pin the blame for Coronavirus on China. I said that chasing reparations of any kind would never do anyone any good, and that the best value that the West could take away from the experience would be to conclude that the Chinese Government could not be trusted and we should not do or encourage business with them of any kind.

I have never bought into the establishment narrative of what Covid is and how it should have or now should be addressed, but I wrote this giving a nod to the possibility that the Virus could be different and significantly more severe than the ‘normal’ respiratory infections that we see each and every year.

What became clear very quickly is there is very little technical and statistical difference between the genuine impact of this respiratory infection and any severe seasonal flu, other than the classification and virus type itself. It is the way that it has and continues to be interpreted, translated and communicated that is key.

Uncomfortable though the truth may be, the only difference between Covid and a flu outbreak that we would experience in any year is the way it has been handled. COVID -19 has been publicised and pursued with the fears of weak- minded politicians and civil servants being dressed up and sold to us in a wholly indoctrinating, if not brain-washing form.

We live with threats that are much worse and much likelier to kill or even affect us in some way. We actively and willingly embrace many of them each and every day. But those threats are presented to us logically, without emotion and in ways that make sense of the level of risk in terms of what it takes for us to live and experience a ‘normal’ functioning life, accepting that there is an accompanying level of risk to us in virtually everything that we do. We drive or ride in cars, travel on planes and undertake jobs that make us vulnerable because that’s the only way the we get things done.

Stand back and view the Government response and reaction to Coronavirus objectively and in the sense that it could have been framed differently as something we would simply have to live with rather than than simply allowing it to dictate life.

You can perhaps then see how a real understanding of how the western mindset works could be weaponised against us or our political leadership, if it was played out and utilised against us and our leaders in precisely the right way.

This is where the real story of what China has done and why it has done it could begin.

It is difficult not to admire and have a very begrudging respect for the ruthless nature and strategic approach employed by the Chinese.

We have only recently been made very well aware of how they have embedded people who are friendly to their cause right across industry, academia and government, and the lessons that our Australian friends and cousins are now exposing through Chinese material interests in their Country point to a growing threat to western culture, business and freedom itself. All of it being levelled at us from the starting point of being an enemy already present within as we sleepwalk with the believe that Chinese money has a different value and is created differently to our own.

The Chinese have historically valued knowledge and respect the power that it gives them. It is therefore no great stretch of the imagination to be able to see and understand that they have been carefully observing our culture and our behaviours for a very long time. The Chinese have become very well aware of our weaknesses.

Our cultural susceptibility to manipulation using mass propaganda has been exposed along with how inept, self-serving and out of touch our political and government leadership has become.

The Chinese have been aware of the opportunity to destroy the West from within using the fat, entitled hierarchical structures that rule the entitled, take-everything-for-granted mentality of the West for a very long time.

With confidence in the knowledge and understanding that the Chinese have, it is far from impossible that they would see the overreaction of Western political leadership to a viral epidemic as the best opportunity to overtake the West without going to the lengths of having to engage in military conflict.

Yes, it all sounds far fetched. But the interest the Chinese have in its relationship with the West is in control and gaining that control in whatever way necessary to get the job done.

With their own people it’s easy for the Chinese Communist Government to inflict the authoritarian view. But without literally invading and taking over countries by using physical force, with consequences for their own Country that could easily destroy them, by far most sensible route to destabilise the countries that stand against them is to use the weaknesses of those countries to attack them from within.

In truth, we may never know the answer to the question of how or indeed why the COVID-19 pandemic began. It is not in the interests of the Chinese to provide Western Governments with any form of help that might prove to shine any spotlight on the truth of what really happened.

What we should keep in mind however, is that no country inclined to use aggressive force against others for the purpose of gaining control is likely to weoponise anything that it couldn’t either control or understand to be harmless to the people it considers to be a beneficial use.

Wuhan in China is now back to operating as if the outbreak from within its boundaries simply didn’t exist.

Today we should be asking ourselves who has most to gain from the deference paid to neoliberalism and the global economy if weak minded Western leaders come out the other side of this Pandemic and behave like nothing has changed and everything remains the same?

The Chinese Government’s ruthlessness is a strategic risk empowered by the cultural fear Johnson & Co created to help their own plans for control

August 24, 2020 Leave a comment

Whilst conspiracists and even Governments see the suggestion that China deliberately unleashed Coronavirus on the World as a legitimate hammer to hit them with, there remain simply too many variables and unknowns for a Government as controlling as the Communist Chinese to indulge. That isn’t to say they are neither prepared nor are not already using their ruthlessness to gain a strategic upper hand against the West as our Countries go to pieces because of Coronavirus Policy.

Whilst our Prime Minister likes to think of himself as the Churchill of the modern age, he is presiding over what history is likely to record as one of the most destructive British Governments ever known.

Johnson’s Conservatives have turned a crisis into calamity whilst convincing a significant part of the population that it is no longer safe to live.

If every country around the globe were doing nothing other than dealing with Coronavirus, or rather pandering to the fear of it – as Boris and his Government deliberately are, it would merely be the financial chaos that they have unleashed without good reason in response to the Lockdown they created that would be the biggest problem we face today by far.

However, blame for the genesis of coronavirus, the Huawei 5G question and the South China Sea uncertainties aside, little attention is being focused on China, whilst it is pretty much steaming ahead with everything – like COVID-19 was a meaningless blip it has simply cast aside.

It’s as if China was on the pre-Covid world ‘ship’ with everyone, yet they have carried on accelerating output and enhancing both their economic and industrial situation, whilst all of the western ‘wet’, incompetent and self-serving governments have self sabotaged their own Countries and jumped overboard.

Why does it matter?

It matters because the world is not a happy place. The complacency that has taken over our lives has made both the UK and the wider world an increasingly vulnerable place.

Whilst political correctness and the woke age sees the lives of people cancelled simply for daring to express themselves freely, we have collectively entered a very dangerous time when we literally only see threats from people who dare to offend fashionable thinking and use their voice.

Regrettably, many of the people waking to the threat to our way of living that our own government has caused in their response to the Coronavirus Pandemic are falling into a trap of believing that there is some great conspiracy at work to create a deliberate reset that will enslave us all. Yet the real threat to the Western world is the new world order that the Chinese is already working strategically to impose and fully intends to head.

China is the industrial and economic powerhouse that we should fear, because the Chinese Government see no moral restrictions in their way to achieving anything they want.

Instead our gutless and inept politicians have spent years sucking up to the Chinese Government simply because our own politicians values revolve around money and China appears to be the one Country always ready to help out when there’s a need for ready cash with the seemingly bottomless pockets to go with it.

Beyond the responsibility and the guilt that growing numbers now wish to be attributed to the actions of Boris and Co. there is perhaps an even greater injustice than their catastrophic mishandling of the Coronavirus Pandemic: in terms of national security they and have been and are strategically asleep at the wheel.

There is no reason to not trade with any country if they have goods or services to offer, they we cannot produce in the UK.

Yet the globalist approach that has been part of this neoliberalist age has pushed manufacturing and jobs headlong into the lair of the dragon. Corporate greed and government incompetence have elevated the chase for profits into a different league, playing right into the hands of a regime that uses deception to gain advantage as its default choice.

As the UK and many other countries around the world begin their descent into an economic abyss that there was never a need for us to fall into, let alone be propelled there by the choice and actions of our politicians, the Chinese government is amassing strength in all manner of ways, aided exponentially by this now unavoidable demise of our own.

The Chinese are positioning themselves to exploit this situation to their advantage. They will quickly be in a position to militarily threaten us in the physical world as well as in the parallel cyber universe where their tentacles have spread far beyond our current national capabilities and probably even into our own homes.

Because of what our politicians have done or failed to do, the 1930’s age of appeasement under the threat of Hitler in Europe may well soon resemble a comparatively idle threat when you put in perspective what’s really involved.

Motivating an entire nation that has been brainwashed to fear death from a virus at every step will feel all but impossible to any genuine leader in itself. But having to face overturning the material effect of decades of Neoliberalism and Globalisation too, in order to restore our collective way of thinking, our motivation and our manufacturing capabilities – just so that we can actually respond when WE are the ones being threatened by war (and if the Chinese do not win without a shot being fired first ) – will be beyond compare.

We can only hope that the trajectory we now appear to be on turns out to be false or positively different than it appears. Otherwise the chances are, instead of being a great leader who preserved our freedom at all costs, Boris Johnson will he seen as the prime minister so obsessed with controlling people’s freedoms to preserve his own role that he gave away everyone’s ability to be free by choice.

China: The war we must win without ever fighting

If speculators could bet on future world events like they play stocks and shares, there is little doubt there would be more focus on the dick swinging and pumping rhetoric against China that has been underway since before the Covid-19 Pandemic began.

That the origins of Coronavirus has given the likes of Donald Trump an excuse to point the finger at the Chinese and use it as a call to action for all the usual suspects is clear.

Trump’s callouts to the US domestic marketplace over trade restrictions were, after all, never going to reach quite as far – given the reality that the worldwide consumer culture pays humble deference to the Country where most cheap goods are made.

Regrettably, that deference isn’t really to China. It is to the god which is money.

Governments have become beholden to the Chinese State, whilst China continues to spread its tentacles across the world using Western capitalism and economic thinking against the very people who invented and became dependent upon it.

China is playing the game so well, they are surreptitiously reinventing the rules.

Activity in the South China Sea region strongly suggests that should hostilities between the West and China break into the open, this will be the theatre where a military campaign would be fought, lost or won.

Yet this would only ever be a proxy war.

Our cultural mindset revolving around money should shout loudly to anyone with ears to hear that we are already engaged in an economic war with China. One that can only be turned around if we completely change the way that we think.

Sadly for Trump, the aim of this battle is not as simple as freezing China out so that US  dominance of all markets can be resumed.

Meanwhile, ongoing negotiations have provided the opportunity for us to observe the true nature of the EU.

We would do well to remember that we had genuine, democratic reasons for Brexit.

Now that we are extricating ourselves from the EU monolith, we really do not want to knowingly throw ourselves straight into the lap of the US or be subjugated via the back door by China – both of whom want to exert monetary and therefore political influence over us – simply wrapped up in alternative forms.

Six months ago, it was near impossible to see where the opportunity would come from to address the disease of corporate greed. Its symptom is the golden age of internet consumerism, underpinned by farming of the masses for interest that can be earned from lending money created from nothing whilst shackling us all to a life burdened by debt.

Coronavirus, or rather the Government response to it – implementing a Lockdown that is going to inflict pain on many millions more than it will ever help – does have a positive flip-side.

The opportunity will come to use the significant financial depression is creating to our advantage by rewriting the rules, the role of money and how money drives so much of what as a society we do.

When our politicians can see beyond a life that can only be written in terms of cost, saving or spending, then morality, ethics and doing what is right can be the priority in public policy once more.

We will then be able to close the trap door that China has set us and reject all other unwanted influences that have, are and continue to wreak havoc in our day to day lives whilst they square up for a war where we will have a lot more than the lives of military personnel to lose.

Don’t assume the Lockdown and 5G are part of a Conspiracy when Government stupidity can be blamed. It would be better to ask why normal people are already thinking this way

People are looking for answers right now, even though it might appear that many are still supportive of the Lockdown and the so-called fight to ‘protect the NHS’.

They don’t realise it, but the lack of clarity, straight-talking and honesty on the part of Senior Politicians is making a situation that every one of us is finding tremendously difficult so much worse than it ever needed to be.

Unfortunately, the reason that Ministers behave as if they are the only people who know what to do in a crisis is that British political culture has conditioned ambitious, self-serving and weak-minded politicians to behave in this way over a period of many years.

Put simply, there is an inherent belief in today’s political culture that to admit, hint or suggest that they don’t know what they are doing or they don’t have the answer to any question at that moment in time will be seen as a sign of weakness and therefore something that they should never admit to – even on pain of death.

Conversely, the reality during a national crisis would be that for an MP, Minister or the Prime Minister to get up in front of a camera and say ‘we don’t have all the answers, but we are going to work this through and always do the best that we can’ would resonate with normal people in a way that would make perfect sense.

Instead, we have had our freedoms restricted and and the opening stages of a police state forced upon us by a Lockdown which is dubious at best and is in the process of leading to financial and life hardship for many millions of people – the number of which will completely eclipse any benefit that the Lockdown will bring.

The Government doesn’t know what it is doing. But believes its best interests are served by doing everything to make the public believe that it does.

The gap between what the Government says and does is growing. It has opened up what began as a simple communication void when they began telling us what they wanted us to hear and think about COVID-19 instead of what they themselves thought.

That void is now growing day by day.

Normal people like you and I are looking for reason and explanation to explain the experiences that we are having in our own lives that runs contrary to everything that we are seeing and hearing on the news, media and from the mouths of the Politicians themselves.

When we experience a void like this, it is natural to want to bridge the gap and make sense of what is actually happening.

The dots are literally not joining up for many people and what the Government is doing simply doesn’t make sense.

Into this gap jumps the conspiracy theories that make sense when other things do not.

Yes, many mock the tin-foil-hat brigade and speakers such as David Icke. But they may be having the last laugh when they are leveraging genuine truths – however small they might be for their own causes, when the Government is failing to even try to use the same information in honest and open communication to support good strategies and right-minded thinking.

Let’s take the 5G link with Coronavirus as an example.

In the weeks leading up to the Lockdown, the Government was engaged in a process of considering the purchase of 5G technologies from the Chinese firm Huawai. The concerns of a security risk were talked up amid the then almost certain reality that Huawai is to all intents and purposes a commercial conduit required to undertake the Chinese Government’s bidding at will. Having access to the 5G networks through hardware installation would facilitate access for the Chinese Government to otherwise secure private, commercial, military and government data streams, which could be repurposed for all sorts of malevolent uses – if dishonesty were to be their aim or way of working. Despite the advice, Boris Johnson gave the go-ahead.

Whilst this was happening, COVID-19 had began its pathway to the wider world from its recognised start in Wuhan in China. But instead of being open and honest, the Chinese Government obfuscated and covered up what was actually happening with Coronavirus on the Chinese mainland and denied other Countries around the World invaluable time to do more to prevent or slow the spread of Coronavirus before it arrived both in the UK and became the Worldwide pandemic that it now is.

So when it comes to the spread of Coronavirus and the impact it is having here and in other parts of the World, China is being blamed.

China is being blamed because it has been dishonest about COVID-19 in its own Country – where it has open control of information, when days and weeks before this there was the suggestion that it would be dishonest and do dishonest things with information and spread viruses via a system that would secretly be under its control if it were allowed to be involved in UK 5G.

Fact: Telecommunications technology cannot spread a viral disease that affects the human body. But it can be used to spread viruses and other corruptive software through our computers and infect our online lives and potentially though 5G, our lives in every sense.

Laugh as you might, many people do not recognise a difference between a virus that is malware and a virus that will make you ill.

Likewise, when people hear lots of talk about China being allowed to install 5G against the advice of those who think they will use the access for dishonest means and then within weeks China is outed as being dishonest about the spread of an illness which has already affected us all in the UK in some way, it does not take a giant leap of the imagination to see and understand how some of us have built that bridge and joined up the dots.

It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that everyone else looks at life through the same lens that we do and that they understand everything in exactly the same way as we do ourselves.

But they don’t.

In fact the way we look at anything – no matter what it is – is always on the basis of the past experiences that we have had which relate to that subject before. It doesn’t matter if its food, money, relationships or what we understand a certain word like virus to mean, it’s all the same when it comes to the reality that we can all be looking at the same thing and each of us see it in a different way.

People need to make sense of the things that they don’t understand. So when the Government misuses the de facto position of public trust that it has been given through democratic process, those who understandably revere and trust the position and power of the Government will look for reasons that are unspoken to explain what the government is actually doing, when it isn’t talking, communicating or acting in a way that is coherent, makes sense, is honest and above all presents itself in a way that engages and allows everyone across our society to understand.

 

 

 

Seeking financial reparation from China for Coronavirus would be ridiculous. The pay-off should be the warning that today they are not a Government the UK can trust

March 18, 2020 Leave a comment

One of the most rotten aspects of culture today is the overriding need that some people have to be able to blame someone or something external to themselves for everything that they consider that they have suffered in some way.

It doesn’t stop there.

Being able to blame someone or something else for the misfortune that they have suffered means that they simply must be compensated – most often financially – in some way.

Money is nothing. It is simply an idea. And giving it value as an emotional currency that can be used to ‘pay someone off’ is helping nobody and least of all the person making the claim.

In recent days, Twitter chat has turned to the subject of seeking reparations from China over the Coronavirus outbreak which we understand to have originated in Wuhan.

Whilst the cost to the economy and the Public Purse in monetary value and the far reaching cost to us all and not least of all those who have lost and will lose loved ones in emotional terms will be significant to say the least, that cost is not something it would be sensible to try and calculate and then present to anyone or any country to whom we might be able to attribute blame.

The reality is that whilst scientists have long suggested that a viral pandemic would be most likely to originate on the Asian Continent in some form, it is in reality just as likely that a problem like Coronavirus could have or still could originate from somewhere in the West in similar or alternative forms. Viruses by their vary nature constantly mutate and it is as feasible that an agent that exists in the UK and is currently viewed as harmless could at any moment change and mutate into a more virulent and malevolent form. All this without any attribution to the science of Porton Down and research into germ warfare being at any time involved.

Whilst conspiracists are already trying to gain traction with the story that Covid-19 was deliberately engineered by one or another Government and simply realised upon the World in Wuhan in its current form, the reality is that the location where this all kicked off was on the part of the Chinese simply a very big dose of bad luck. As such, this is not something in itself that any of us should be seeking to attribute blame or indeed seek reparations from them for.

We have been expecting a Worldwide pandemic for sometime and in the eyes of many, it has long since been overdue. 2020 has simply and unfortunately proven to be the time.

What we could and should be taking note of however, is the approach that the Chinese Government took to notifying and informing the World when the outbreak first took off, and how they may even now be approaching the management and manipulation of information and its flow even now.

Control is everything to the Communist Regime and it is very clear that they are involved in and have access to everything, no matter whether it is government, business or personal in nature – wherever they are involved.

The delay in providing accurate information to the rest of the World may well have prevented many Governments from being able to act sooner to address the spread of Covid-19. The reality is that we will never be sure.

But we should take the whole experience as a reference point for what the Chinese actually does, as opposed to what in parallel it desires us all to be told.
