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?

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?

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.
