EU, UK and US Offer Support As Covid-19 ‘Swallowing’ People In India (EN)

The European Union, UK and the United States have pledged to help India as the country battles a devastating surge of COVID-19 infections. For the fourth straight day, India on Sunday set a global daily record of new cases, spurred by an insidious new variant that emerged here. The surge has undermined the government’s premature claims of victory over the pandemic. The 349,691 new infections brought India’s total to more than 16.9 million, behind only the United States. The Health Ministry reported another 2,767 deaths in the past 24 hours, pushing India’s fatalities to 192,311. The death toll could be a huge undercount, as suspected cases are not included, and many COVID-19 deaths are being attributed to underlying conditions.

The crisis is compounded by short supplies of oxygen with families left on their own to ferry people sick with COVID-19 from hospital to hospital in search of treatment. On social media and in television footage, desperate relatives plead for oxygen outside hospitals or weep in the street for loved ones who died waiting for treatment. In response to the spiralling situation in the southeast Asian country, the European Union has activated its Civil Protection Mechanism, which is coordinating with member states to ship oxygen and medicine rapidly.Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said she was “alarmed by the epidemiological situation in India. We are ready to support.” “The EU is pooling resources to respond rapidly to India’s request for assistance,” she added.

[..] The unfolding crisis is most visceral in India’s overwhelmed graveyards and crematoriums, and in heartbreaking images of gasping patients dying on their way to hospitals due to lack of oxygen. Burial grounds in the capital New Delhi are running out of space. Bright, glowing funeral pyres light up the night sky in other badly hit cities. In the central city of Bhopal, some crematoriums have increased their capacity from dozens of pyres to more than 50. Yet there are still hours-long waits. At the city’s Bhadbhada Vishram Ghat crematorium, workers said they cremated more than 110 people on Saturday, even as government figures in the entire city of 1.8 million put the total number of virus deaths at just 10. “The virus is swallowing our city’s people like a monster,” said Mamtesh Sharma, an official at the site.

“The United States on Sunday led international pledges of support for India..” Bwa ha ha!

Global Pledges Of Help For Covid-stricken India (Y!)

The United States on Sunday led international pledges of support for India as the country grappled with worsening Covid-19 crisis with record daily death rates and severe medical shortages. The Indian healthcare system has struggled to cope with a huge surge in cases, leaving patients’ families begging for help on social media and the capital New Delhi forced to extend its strict lockdown. Creaking health facilities in poorer countries were also exposed on Sunday when more than 80 people died as fire ripped through a Baghdad hospital for Covid-19 patients, sparking outrage and the suspension of top Iraqi officials. Covid-19 has now killed more than three million people worldwide since emerging in China in December 2019.

India, which has a population of 1.3 billion, has driven increases in global case numbers in recent days, recording 349,691 new infections and 2,767 deaths on Sunday — the highest since the start of the pandemic. Delhi on Sunday reported more than one-quarter of those tested were positive. President Joe Biden said the United States was “determined to help India in its time of need,” immediately making available supplies of vaccine-production material, therapeutics, tests, ventilators and protective equipment. Western nations including Britain, France and Germany have also pledged help. “The United States has identified sources of specific raw material urgently required for Indian manufacture of the Covishield vaccine,” a White House statement said, referring to the India-produced version of the AstraZeneca shot.

But it did not mention whether the US would send millions of surplus AstraZeneca vaccine doses to India, after top US pandemic adviser Anthony Fauci said Sunday that would be considered.

“Sullivan “affirmed America’s solidarity with India..”

US To Give India Raw Materials For Vaccines, Medical Supplies (CNBC)

The Biden administration said that it will immediately make raw materials needed for India’s coronavirus vaccine production available as the country works to counter the surge of Covid-19 infections. In recent weeks, India has grappled with a staggering rise in new coronavirus infections. Over the weekend, India set another global record for daily cases, bringing the nation’s cumulative total to 16,960,172 cases, according to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins. “Just as India sent assistance to the United States as our hospitals were strained early in the pandemic, the United States is determined to help India in its time of need,” National Security Council spokeswoman Emily Horne said in a statement on Sunday.

Horne added that the United States would send raw materials required for India to manufacture the Covishield vaccine, as well as therapeutics, rapid diagnostic test kits, ventilators and protective equipment. “The U.S. Development Finance Corporation is funding a substantial expansion of manufacturing capability for BioE, the vaccine manufacturer in India, enabling BioE to ramp up to produce at least 1 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines by the end of 2022,” Horne wrote, adding that the U.S. would also send a team of public health advisors from the Center for Disease Control and USAID to India. The announcement comes on the heels of a Sunday call between Biden National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.

Sullivan “affirmed America’s solidarity with India, the two countries with the greatest number of Covid-19 cases in the world,” according to a readout of the call. The U.S. response comes after Britain, France and Germany pledged aid to India over the weekend. On Sunday, Biden wrote on Twitter that his administration was “determined to help India in its time of need.”

“On Saturday, Twitter complied with the government’s request and prevented people in India from viewing more than 50 tweets that appeared to criticize the administration’s handling of the pandemic. ”

Twitter Admits To Censoring Criticism of The Indian Government (Turley)

On Saturday, Twitter admitted that it is actively working with the Indian government to censor criticism of its handling of the pandemic as the number of cases and deaths continues to skyrocket. There are widespread reports that the Indian government has misrepresented the number of deaths and the true rate of cases could be as much as 30 times higher than reported. The country has a shortage of beds, oxygen, and other essentials due to a failure to adequately prepare for a new surge. Not surprisingly, the Indian government has moved to crackdown on criticism. This included a call to Twitter to censor such information and Twitter has, of course, complied.

With the support of many Democratic leaders in the United States, Twitter now regularly censors viewpoints in the United States and India had no trouble in enlisting it to crackdown on those raising the alarm over the government handling of the crisis. Buried in an Associated Press story on the raging pandemic and failures of the Indian government are these two lines: “On Saturday, Twitter complied with the government’s request and prevented people in India from viewing more than 50 tweets that appeared to criticize the administration’s handling of the pandemic. The targeted posts include tweets from opposition ministers critical of Modi, journalists and ordinary Indians.”

The article quotes Twitter as saying that it had powers to “withhold access to the content in India only” if the company determined the content to be “illegal in a particular jurisdiction.” Thus, criticism of the government in this context is illegal so Twitter has agreed to become an arm of the government in censoring information. Keep in mind that that some of this information could be true and actually protect lives. It is not “fake news” but efforts by journalists and others to disclose failures by the government that could cost hundreds of thousands of lives.

Et tu Thailand…

Thai Public Health Miister Defies Calls To Quit Health Post (BKP)

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul is facing down calls to resign over his failure to contain the Covid-19 crisis. The opposition Move Forward Party on Sunday spoke out on the government’s handling of the third wave of Covid-19 infections, alleging negligence of duty by government officials and the absence of preparations to deal with a resurgence of the virus. The party also slammed the national vaccination drive, saying the government was slow to purchase the required doses. It also criticised the government’s inability to assign beds to Covid-19 patients in a timely manner, after several patients died at home while waiting to be assigned to a treatment facility. All three waves of Covid-19 infections in the country were caused by the government’s complacency and discrimination in enforcing disease control measures, the party said.


The party demanded the minister’s immediate resignation and called on the government to consider its suggestions on the Covid-19 situation.One patient who died at home while waiting to be transferred was an 85-year-old woman living in a shophouse in Bang Kholaem district, where in total six elderly residents were found to be infected. Mr Anutin said he was sorry for the death and promising the ministry will work harder to find beds for those who need them the most. Many experts have warned that unless action is taken, home deaths could follow the same sharp upward trajectory seen in other countries during similar stages of the outbreak. This comes amid reports that some people with Covid are choosing to stay at home rather than seek outside help, possibly endangering other members of the household.

“..individual countries may be able keep tougher guidelines in for tourists..”

Vaccinated Americans Will Reportedly Be Allowed Back In Europe This Summer (F.)

American holidaymakers who have received a coronavirus vaccine will be permitted to enter the European Union in time for summer vacation thanks to the success of the U.S. vaccine rollout, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told the New York Times Sunday.The timing of the imminent policy change is still unclear, and will depend on the spread of the virus in both the U.S. and Europe over the next few months, Von der Leyen said told the newspaper.The U.S. has made “huge progress” in their vaccine rollout, she noted, and added she hopes the epidemiological situation in Europe will also improve. Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines, the three that are being distributed within the U.S., have all been approved by the European agency, which Von der Leyen said means they’ll be accepted at European borders.


Discussions between Washington, D.C. and Brussels regarding how travelers will demonstrate they’ve been vaccinated are still ongoing, the Times reported. Transatlantic travel has largely been barred since March 2020, when the onset of the coronavirus pandemic shut down much of society. In recent weeks, countries like France and Greece have hinted they will permit vaccinated American travelers to return to their countries this summer for a much-needed tourism boost. The Times reported that while Von de Leyen is onboard for Americans traveling within the EU, individual countries may be able keep tougher guidelines in for tourists, like mandatory quarantine periods or blocking international travelers altogether.

“..the states that are declared unfriendly “won’t be able to hire Russian citizens to work at their diplomatic and consular missions..”

US Set To Be Included On Russia’s New List Of ‘Unfriendly Countries’ (RT)

Moscow is putting together a list of unfriendly nations and the US is “obviously” going to be on it, the foreign ministry has revealed. The blacklist is in response to the recent unfriendly moves by the Americans and their allies. Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova explained on Sunday that work on the schedule of states considered to be hostile began after “another round of unfriendly actions by the US. “What are those unfriendly states? The list is being compiled now,” she outlined in an interview with the Rossiya 1 TV channel. “As you understand, and I can confirm it, the US is, obviously, present” on it, Zakharova said, without naming any other countries involved.

In accordance with a decree recently signed by Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, the states that are declared unfriendly “won’t be able to hire Russian citizens to work at their diplomatic and consular missions,” Zakharova added. A fresh diplomatic standoff between Moscow and Washington erupted in mid-April after US President Joe Biden ordered the expulsion of 10 Russian diplomats, accusing the Kremlin of interference in the 2020 US presidential election and of involvement in last year’s SolarWinds cyber-espionage incident. More than 30 Russian individuals and organizations were also sanctioned, while American companies were barred from directly buying shares in Russia’s national debt.

Moscow denied all of Washington’s claims and came up with a tit-for-tat response, asking ten American diplomats to leave and promising measures that would bar US funds and NGOs from interfering in Russian internal affairs.

“There may be no better symbol of our new national priorities than the “Stanley Johnson clause” in the Covid travel rules announced last month, which allows visits to property overseas but not family.”

Tories Are Reaping The Rewards Of An Economy Built On Rising House Prices (G.)

It was 14 years ago, in the summer of 2007, that the first signs of the global financial crisis appeared: the liquidation of two hedge funds heavily invested in mortgage-backed securities, and the start of the collapse of Northern Rock. This is more than enough time for a new economic model to take shape. After all, 14 years after Richard Nixon signalled the end of the “Keynesian” era by disbanding the fixed exchange rates system that shaped the post-1945 economy, Margaret Thatcher was on the cusp of her third election victory, and London was awash with “yuppies” making fast money out of the stock market. The picture of Britain’s post-crash economic settlement was clear even before the dramatic impact of Covid. To put it bluntly, the proceeds of economic growth in the UK now flow entirely to asset-owners – including homeowners.

Study after study has shown that in the decade after the financial crisis, average real wages simply stopped rising – something that had never happened in two centuries of industrial capitalism. And yet, Britain’s housing market defies all economic threats and shocks. While wages have stagnated, the average British house price is now approximately 50% higher than it was in January 2009, and in London around double. While the economic crisis of 2007-9 was accompanied by a housing crash, the first year of Covid-19 saw a boom in property prices. In 2020, London overtook Hong Kong and New York for the number of “super-luxury” properties (costing more than $10m) sold. There may be no better symbol of our new national priorities than the “Stanley Johnson clause” in the Covid travel rules announced last month, which allows visits to property overseas but not family.

The UK’s ratio of housing wealth to GDP is now above the level seen in Japan before its historic crash in 1991 – but there is no sign that policymakers wish to alter the place of housing wealth in the UK economy, or indeed its dominant imprint on our politics. George Osborne’s refusal to use fiscal policy to support the economy after 2010 meant that the UK became even more dependent on monetary policy – very low interest rates and quantitative easing – which simply allowed more money to be poured into assets, hugely enriching asset-owners at the expense of everyone else.

Interview with bestselling food writer Oliver Milman about his new book Animal, Vegetable, Junk.

“if you look at a chart of health care costs versus food costs, it’s perfect like this. As food costs go up, healthcare costs go down. And as food costs go down, health care costs go up.”

The True Costs Of Our Cheap Food And The American Diet (G.)

There was a time that almost everyone farmed and grew food for themselves and their neighbors and or trade, local trade and so on. But at some point, surplus became more important than feeding people. Growing food, or growing crops in order to sell them and make money became more important than growing crops to feed people. And that process accelerated since 1500, or whenever you want to say capitalism began. To the point where, in the States at least, 95% of crops are basically grown as cash crops. And the question is almost never ‘What is the land telling us we want to grow? What can we grow that will be most beneficial for our community? What can I grow that’s most nutritious that will damage the land as little as possible?’ Those are not questions that are being asked.

The questions that are being asked or the question that’s being asked is ‘How can I make the most money possible with this land?’ Sometimes that means just selling the land for development. But often, it means growing one crop at a time. And it’s a crop that’s either directly or indirectly subsidized, like corn or soybeans. And it’s a crop that mostly goes into junk food or animal feed, or even ethanol, which is obviously not food at all. I really think the enclosure of the commons was a big deal. When the nobility started dictating to peasants what should be grown and how it should be sold and to whom it should be sold. And peasants began to run out of land to grow food for themselves and their families. That was one of the driving factors in the industrial revolution. And we’ve just seen that accelerate.

[..] One of the most damning statistics is that close to 50% of the food that’s available is in the form of ultra processed food. So ultra processed food is what I call junk food. What many of us call junk food. And it means food that contains non-food ingredients; food that your grandmother, great grandmother, maybe at this point wouldn’t have recognized as food. Food that you can’t cook yourself. Food that you don’t find in your own kitchen in the normal course of cooking and eating. A food that didn’t exist before the 20th century. [..] if you look at a chart of health care costs versus food costs, it’s perfect like this. As food costs go up, healthcare costs go down. And as food costs go down, health care costs go up. So cheap food, that’s a direct correlation. Cheap food has had a terrible impact on public health. As every country switches from a traditional diet to a more American diet, their rates of chronic disease go up. In every single instance. And yet we cannot get government to consider this a crisis.

Wealthy, Privileged Gather To Lecture Nation On Evils Of Wealth, Privilege (BBee)

According to sources at the 91st annual Academy Awards ceremony this evening, the nation’s wealthy, privileged elite gathered to lecture the nation on the horrendous evils of wealth and privilege. The wealthiest 0.00001% of the nation arrived at the exclusive, walled-off, high-security event in limos and luxury cars driven by servants in order to spend a few hours telling the nation’s poor and middle-class citizens how they need to throw off the yoke of oppression put on them by the wealthy elite.


“It’s the white, privileged, wealth hoarders that are ruining America,” said one white, privileged man whose net worth is estimated at $160 million. “All you people in the cheap seats at home: you need to do better.” “America is just a terrible nation with no opportunity,” said one woman who made $100 million wearing costumes and reading words someone else wrote off a page. “We must stop the 1% from hoarding all the wealth.” Upon being informed she was well within the 1%, she clarified that it was actually the 0.000001% who are the problem. Unfortunately, it looks like the event will proceed as planned next year as well.

    Hardly a surprise as the vaccines are “leaky” in the sense that they do not stop transmission or prevent infection. They only reduce the impact of the symptoms. Pfizer & Moderna themselves admit this.

    Amazing that so few people understand this and continue to think that the vaccines make them immune.

    And I think a lot of people on the true left who usually don’t drink establishment Kool-Aid are this time is because it’s a tenet of leftyism to invest one’s trust in the mechanisms of science. While that’s certainly very rational in its intention, the problem with it, at least in this case, is that it’s possible to forget that science is a tool harnessed by various human motivations, not all of them necessarily wise or benign.

She was just put in charge of the border, which was her cue to NOT visit and to maintain complete silence for weeks.

    There’s an interesting signal in the US CDC VAERS data.
    I downloaded it all a couple of weeks ago, and then downloaded updated 2021 data again just the other day, and queried for the annual total number of adverse events in which the subject died.
    It turns out that 10 times as many deaths were reported in the first 3 months of 2021 than in the most deadly of any of the previous 30 years. And the number of deaths reported in the past two weeks is almost four times that worst previous annual total.
    If you prefer comparison to averages, as of 23 April the deaths reported are almost 20 times the annual average over the past 30 years of data, and the number reported in the past two weeks is over 5 times the annual average.
    Something is not right.

    Isreali Health Body Report on COVID Vax ‘Deadly’ Impacts
    The Israeli People Committee (IPC), a civilian body…

    That group seems to be trying to do the best they can with the data they can find. They say Israel has shut down its adverse event tracking systems, and thousands of people are resorting to social media posts to share their adverse reactions to the vaccine.

    While the Prime Minister of Israel and senior officials of the Ministry of Health brag that Israel serves as a global model for nationwide vaccination, and while they boast that Pfizer has chosen us to be the experimental country thanks to the advanced technological systems of our HMOs [Health Maintenance Organizations], the state has systematically shut down all monitoring and tracking systems, which are designed to identify and alert of adverse events that occur in proximity of receiving the vaccine. This irresponsible conduct by the Ministry of Health during this mass operation providing an experimental treatment to millions of people, regardless of whether such conduct is negligent or intentional, has led to an unprecedented flood of thousands of serious adverse event reports after the vaccine on social media, which seems to be the only forum that still allows people to share their experiences. Surprisingly, such widespread phenomena have not received any media coverage or attention from public officials.

    Re. the no. of hospital beds in various countries, these depend for a part on the feasability and investment in Home Care.

    Home care is medically “acceptable’” for those cases where the conditions are judged great – good – acceptable – which will vary with geography, culture, habit, the type of insult / pathology / medical event / operation, how things are organised, in function of what aims, 5-year plans, etc.

    Hospital beds are very expensive and when unoccupied “eat up” resources, like staff, servicing, sophisticated equipment, the building (water, heat, chill, clean, etc.)

    Some / many patients are already paying (they, their families) for a resting place at home. Home care is also recommended as being more friendly, less stressful for the patient, surely the case for many, NOT all.

    Nosocomial infections are also often mentioned, many patients are safer at home. 🙂 🙂

    France has invested hugely in home care, adjusting the doc /nurse /cleaner /psych /social worker visits etc. (They have to move around, by car, sometimes by motorbike / moped .. etc. the logistics can be horrendous..) Not to argue that F has enough hospital beds, imho it doesn’t, other story.

    Is the policy adequate or optimal (or xxx?) in the particular setting? Very hard to judge, as this isn’t one shoe-size fits all.

    A last factor in play. The planning and prep for sudden ‘illness, disaster’ surges, e.g. pandemic, earthquake, floods, war.

    The speedy set-up of field hospitals, re-groupings of patients, etc. Switz. for ex mobilised 8K military (docs, sanitary, builders and movers, etc.) for Covid-19 with another 8K ready to go for field hospitals, transport, etc. (They were not needed, sent home.)

    No regular hospital beds need be occupied in such disaster events, when patients are treated outside of the hospital. (see China for ex.)

    A last consideration is the authority of the Gvmt. to effect the take-over of private med. facilities, e.g. to requisition a private clinic and occupy it, use it, based on previous agreements / emergency powers, and how well that works out. If the staff accepts, and is paid, it usually works OK.

    Things come together, and then fall apart;
    they grow tired of collapsing and will assimilate again.

    AnabolismCatabolism – and Limit : that’s all there is.

    The many go with the flow (the “normies“);
    a few oppose it (the “bandits“);
    even fewer have doubts (the “usual suspects“).

    You can stop the tide no more than you can avoid to be who you are.

    “It would be an improvement to blame this pandemic fiasco on incompetence or lack of imagination, but there is a growing chorus which believes that even darker forces are at work. How does one explain:

    – A gain-of-function chimeric virus escaping from DOD funded lab?
    – Refusal to halt international travel until the virus was already well established?
    – The misuse of PCR testing to exaggerate case counts, promoting fear and panic?
    – Forcing sick patients back into nursing homes to infect others?
    – The suppression of effective Covid treatment protocols?
    – While promoting $3000/pop remdesivir, which effectively does nothing?
    – The push to institute a vaccine passport system?
    – The interference of UN bureaucrats into doctor/patient treatment choices?
    – The full-scale promotion of experimental mRNA vaccines having no history of success?
    – The push to include children and pregnant women in the vaccine trials?
    – The refusal to license vaccine tech for global access?
    – Endless lockdowns unsupported by statistical data?
    – The destruction of the small businesses to the benefit of multinationals?

    Looking at the whole enchilada, there appears more here than just Operation Warp Greed. In the background lurk the $Trillions pumped into the banking system, not to mention the WEF Great Reset agenda.”

    Pursuing my role as deconstructer of Great Conspiracy Models, I’ll offer this view of the above phenomenon:

    Greedy Incompetent People (GIP) exploit a situation for their own gain. This creates problems. They then exploit, for their own gain, the problems they created for their own gain, in the process producing new problems. This cycle goes on until collapse.

    So, for example, the likes of Gates hold seminars assessing the growing risk of global pandemics. They have gobs of money and power so they believe they also possess wisdom and competence, since our society conflates the former with the latter. (Logic: ‘If you’re so smart why aren’t you a zillionaire?’ equals ‘You’re a zillionaire so you’re so smart.’)

    They tell themselves, each other, and the world that they’re working for the common good, and most of them believe this to be so because they don’t see themselves as Drs. Evil; they see themselves as wise competent powerful elites whose self-alleged/perceived wise competent wealthy power is necessary to fix the problems in the world (mostly caused by the processes by which their kind achieve wealth and power).

    They believe that their wealth and power proves their benevolent acumen, and most people believe them because most people worship wealth and power… and most people would behave much like the GIP do if they were wealthy and powerful.

    Being wealthy and powerful, they have the leverage to benefit from circumstances that diminish most people, like getting rich off a pandemic created by microbes their hubris helped bring into existence, and getting rich off the economic circumstances caused/exacerbated by the pandemic (or war on terror or war on drugs or…).

    Amid all this are genuine malevolent conspiracies, some of which succeed more than not. But at no point is there a coordindated lockstep of Grand Evil Design other than a series of mutual backscratchings and mutual servings of delusional self-aggrandizing bullshit in essence than the self-aggrandizing bullshit many of us display here.

    Why do I follow this logic? Because it fits in with what I see of most people including those in office: the ability to blow smoke up our ass, to tell ourselves we’re agents of the greater good because we couldn’t possibly be assisting, even unwittingly, in sustaining evil consequences. Not us!?!

    To quote Dr. Fauci from his early days working with AIDS: “Hey, I’m the good guy here! I’m trying to save lives!” He probably still thinks so although it probably takes larger amounts of Xanax for him to ignore evidence to the contrary.

    Very very few people alive possess a psyche that can emotionally sustain itself in the pursuit of acts it feels are evil, because that makes them feel evil, and no one wants to feel they’re evil except the tiny few who get off on it. (Takes all kinds of people to make a world.)

    Our ability to tell lies to others begins, with most of us, being able to lie to ourselves, even if the lie is nothing more than ‘they’ll never know’ and ‘it will hardly make a difference’. On some level they are more likely than not to know or eventually find out. Shit is shit and makes an unmistakable stink.

    I submit that the vast majority of the GIP think of themselves as doing good at best or compromising at worst with forces beyond their control. Just as very few people will be a true hero that risks all to oppose the oppressive system, very few people will be a true villain who risks all to create an oppressive system.

    I have my crazy money wagered these days on something like Jeebus Will Return Soon and begin the restoration process. Oh, I know it’s mostly irrational for me to believe that, but then, human consciousness is mostly irrational. The purpose of belief seems to me to mostly be about creating views of reality that make one feel good about being alive.

    So I choose to believe that all this horror and nonsense amid all this beauty and profundity has at least some divine direction. I am not emotionally equipped to care about living from any other perspective. I agree with (Socrates?): “The only thing I know is that I know nothing.” This makes it easier for me to hand myself over, as much as my ignorant will allows, to whatever divine influencve may avail. Listening to the wind whisper wisdom now and then may be mere delusion, but I like how it fits.

    We’ve arranged a society based on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology. This combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is gonna blow up in our faces.
    Carl Sagan, May 27th, 1996

    Perhaps a tad misworded.
    The problem seems to be the utter and willful ignorance concerning human “carrot and stick” nature. The scarce knowledge humans have on this subject matter is used in malevolent ways, mainly for purposes of control by fear.

    Why is it so?
    Because poking around on others is real easy; “knowing thyself” is hard as hell.

    Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

    Your response had me riveted. I couldn’t agree more with your analysis.

    I think what troubles me most as of late is that much of what I see does not appear to be the white noise of your everyday corruption for personal gain, even at the corporate level. I detect a very strong signal indicating a top-down (NATO) orchestration of pandemic policy. This signal clearly popped out of the noise when, after a couple of months, the pandemic was yanked from the control of the medical establishment into the arms of politicians, bureaucrats, and tech companies. Suddenly, as if the script was FedEx’d to everyone overnight, western nations (except Sweden) all singing the same song as to Covid policy.

    Can this all be attributed to political opportunism and grandstanding? Does Big Pharma really have this long of reach and power?

    Communism doesn’t work despite the best ideals of all systems because it rests on the principle of enforced love, which is just another kind of rape, metaphysical rape, let’s say. If anything can’t be coerced, it’s genuine love.

    Capitalism fails because it insists that evil can be tolerated for the greater good, which is even more specious reasoning than that of communism but, this being a specious reality, this human culture, capitalism manages to fool us long enough for it to seem viable before dropping us into a plundered vicious wasteland as dire as any communist hellhole but without at least the memories and imprint of higher ideals. (Sure, most didn’t believe in those ideals at least as purveyed by government, but they were TRAINED in them, and that helps when forming group communities is the main job for survival. Meanwhile, capitlaism as in America, touted ideals most people believe in… until the money fails. Since capitalism is nothing but belief in our mutual reverence of money, In $$ We Trust, the collapse of a capitalist economy produces wanton insanity that m akes even the Chinese Cultural Revolution look tepid.

    We’ve seen communist/socialist nations collapse, usually with great help to that end from ours truly. We know the horror stories. We have not seen capitalist democracies collapse for a long time, and on nowhere even remotely similar a scale to ours. The last one ws probably Greece/early Rome, right?

    I suspect that capitalistic collapse is spectacularly horrible especially amid a planet stripped bare during a time of increasing climate disruption (whatever the cause; only fools bicker whose fault it is rather than fix the mess the guilty fool made and is incapable of cleaning up being a foolish mess-maker) with closer than not almost 14k nuclear warheads on board.

    Socialism tries to be some kind of compromise between the two, and justly earns the criticism that all mealy-mouthed compromises deserve.

    @ Maxwell Quest

    Riveted? Lordy. I should buy a new dress more often. 😉

    Now, let me clarify. I believe there are heavy-weights at the top scheming grandly, and that a few of them may even do so along the classic Hollywood-depicted lines of evil. I believe this has always been so since recorded history. Any structure large enough to be sufficiently opaque to its constituents, breeds hiding holes for monsters especially at the top which, for all that it’s in plain sight of everyone, contains the most hidey-holes. Especially when its buried under a squirmingpile of reporters.

    And yes, I do believe they’re scheming more mightily than ever, and yes, I believe they’ve been seeing this disastrous climax-before-collapse building up for some time, and have even been analysing a good part of it with some accuracy (not their strong suit), and yes, they seek to exploit the situation for their gain and our loss right down to Y’all Die While We Don’t.

    BUT… all they’re doing is manipulating human nature via a few schemes (money, the original medium, and all other media). That is all they can do. The bulk of the heavy-lifting in our evil march through bad times toward worse (with a nice wee golden age for some of us during the Petroleum Era) has always been done by you, me, and the idjit next door who thinks he’s smarter than us and very well may be cuz we’re idjits too.

    Also: circumstances arise and they exploit them. They don’t create circumstances. We do that. None of this was forced on us. We acquiesced, with minor spurts of autonomous self-assertion, through most of this charade.

    Yes, the GIP are pulling out all the stops, and some of them have been pre-scripted, but none of it is going according to plan. Oh noes. You know, the reason we didn’t form a good relationship with Mao during WWII or afterward is because the GIP actually believed they could control China using Taiwan as a starting point. Not even 200 years old, the main handlers of the USA actually believed they could control and multimillenia old nation/culture from halfway around the world. These are NOT mental giants nor titans of leadership. Anything but.

    I think maybe I’ve made my point. I hope so. The point grows dull from so much making.;) I need to move on to the finer points of brussel-sprouting or spiritual orgasmics.

    If what the GIP are trying to do now worked, it would have already happened. Globalism must fail if only because it requires cooperation among a floating fluctuating cabal of homo saps who are uber-pathologically competitive, selfish, deranged, and massively self-deluded along megalomaniacal lines.

    Other than their uncanny gift for lying, they have virtually no other skills to recommend them to reality, which is why they remain such a small part of humanity even if they are its by far greatest gluttons and drunken drivers: reality can only handle a tiny bit of these misbegotten victims of psychosis. Parasites cannot breed larger than their host population without most of them dying.

    How stupid are they? Silly parasites think that their HOSTS are the problem. That.is.concrete.stupid. Airport all fogged in, control tower full of lunatics.

    “The human brain as the validation engine™“.”

    Aye, which is why I use the God concept to harness the unruly brat. God, for the core mind/heart/body complex, is like kiddie cartoons to a 7-year old. They’re the only thing capable of keeping kids indoors on a Saturday (back when kids still played primarily outside), and God, in my experience, is the only thing capable of applying enough leverage (desire<>despair whipsawing it via powerful AC soul amperage) to make me actually FOCUS on the heart of the matter which, neatly enough, resides in my heart. I can feel it. Right there in my solar plexus. Mental illusion or connection with the divine, I don’t know or care. Stupid question, since I have zero clue as to why I have a mind that can permorm mental illusions that easily trick me. God, another word for I-don’t-know, makes mind; therefore God trumps secular, physics-only explanations of spiritual phenomena including NDEs.

    I’ll say from a different perspective what I interpret you saying. We always interpret this scripture as referring to sin, a comparison of who’s more right versus who’s more wrong when it could just as well refer to holy wisdom itself. People arguing whose path is right. Fellow Xtians caught up in ad infinitum counts of who has the most angels dancing on their pinheads.

    When the only line of sight to higher wisdom, or what we call spiritual enlightenment, is through one’s own personal vision, one had no energy to spare on juding — or following — others. So I read that Jesus line like this: “Quit worrying about his problems, you have plenty of your own. If you’ll stop focusing on all the bad shit this world inevitably produces, and look into that which produces all this stuff for you — your personal consciousness — you just might find happiness and more.”

    Go into your closet and pray in secret, He added. Y’all sound nutso when you pray in public, you know that? You do that religious talk thing. It’s hokey and boring. Imagine how bad it is for God fall asleep during a prayer? Keep it real, already?

    Might be time to go review high school European and US history before making assertions that US founding documents were based on Judeochristian principles.

    Those documents where based rather on principles of the enlightenment. Much of the enlightenment came about because of the influx of Ancient Greek and Roman philosophers and writers…most of those were decidedly neither Jewish nor Christian.

    The founding fathers of US were mostly Deists, which is a hop, skip, and a jump away from being atheists….

    And thus the lies are spread and believed…bleh.

    Oh, I think it’s fair to say that Judeo-Xtian principles were involved. Absolute;y. JUst not Xtian dogma.

    And being a deist is anything but a hop skip jump fropm atheism. Deism means, oh, you know… or maybe not:

    “de·ism
    /ˈdēˌizəm,ˈdāˌizəm/ noun
    belief in the existence of a supreme being, specifically of a creator who does not intervene in the universe. The term is used chiefly of an intellectual movement of the 17th and 18th centuries that accepted the existence of a creator on the basis of reason but rejected belief in a supernatural deity who interacts with humankind.”

    It astounds me how so many people allow silly dogma of specific name brand religions to reflexively close their minds to the essential concepts that religions address, however poorly.

    That said, deism seems like a precursor to the term that Thomas Huxley invented in the latter 19th century: agnosticism, a much more honorable term, in my opinion. We don’t know what we don’t know but believe what we believe. I am both an agnostic about, and a devout believer in, the existence of something like God.

    The most foolish talk from either camp — theism or atheism — comes when they critique each other.

    Brittannica doesn’t do too bad a job of finessing the issue:

    In the dualism of Perfectly Planned Diabolical conspiracy vs Total Random Serendipitous Sh*thappens I view things like a good musician, a jazz player jamming or improvising.

    The jam session might have a vague starting point, an opening bar or two of Charlie Parker get spontaneously played to start but evolves into something with a mind of it’s own, like an emergent property in a weather event, the butterfly wing beat producing a hurricane thing.

    But anyone who has jammed knows that subtlety assertive, even secretly aggressive players can steer the jam with aplomb.

    The sociopathic / psychopathic ratio is different in different slices the the population.

    Dr Robert Hare pioneered the field long before there was much formal interest in it.

    “…given his expertise with the subject and the research that suggests 1 in 100 people are psychopaths who tend to blend in, like cold-blooded chameleons. We know psychopaths make up 15 to 20 percent of the prison population, at least 70 percent of repeat violent offenders and the significant majority of serial killers and sex offenders…”

    Dr Hare was asked once to detect the rate of sociopathic / psychopathic behavior in the financial industry years ago by of all organizations the New York Stock exchange!

    He finished his study by concluding about roughly 25% of the US financial industry was sociopathic / psychopathic!

    That’s higher than the prison population! hahahahaha!

    Dr Hare came to the conclusion after decades of study that about 1% of the general population were psychopathic and that roughly 3% were sociopathic.

    So to say only a tiny portion of the general population is depraved with greed lust misses the fact that the .001% oligarchs have a MUCH higher starting percentage of sociopathic / psychopathic behavior to begin with than the general public.

    The ‘elites” (gag cough) playing the current hustle probably have a similar ratio to ”repeat violent offenders and the significant majority of serial killers and sex offenders…”!

    70 percent of them, NOT the 1-3% the the general sheeple are lizard brained.

    Sure, a minority think they’re doing “God’s Work” but the rest are beyond the pail.

    “When Dr. Robert Hare started his job as a young prison psychologist, the first prisoner he met was a psychopath, although Hare didn’t know it yet. In an interview published in Discover Magazine, Hare describes the encounter with a man he calls “Ray:”
    “He was extremely predatory, looked at me like I was food,” recalls Hare. “With his eyes, he nailed me to the wall.” Then Ray pulled out a crude, handmade knife and waved it at Hare. When Hare refrained from pressing the panic button, Ray said he planned to use his weapon on another inmate. Hare felt that Ray was testing him, so he chose not to report the prisoner or the contraband weapon to other staff.”
    I knew someone years ago who worked in French Indochina aka Vietnam who stayed on to build roads and bridges up the spine of the country in the 50’s, The Ugly American.

    He finally left in disgust in the early 60’s and he told me later that every time he worked to build a bridge for a year or two the Viet Minh would blow it up as soon as it opened.

    He said you can’t run a society were even 1% of the population is committed to destroying the infrastructure, that was the approximately estimated strength of the Viet Minh in his area at the time.

    Whether you think most of the Oligarchs are just serendipitous opportunists, even a very small hard core of sociopathic / psychopathic players can dramatically change the tune of the Jam.

    Also, Harvey Risch MD is quite a stickler for details. If he says most cases of COVID-19 in Israel are now in the 50% or so of the population which has been vaccinated, that is so.
    It looks like there is a spike in cases in the 2 weeks right after vaccination.
    The reason is unclear. Several hypotheses on the C-19D list.
