BIG FARM$ MAKE PANDEMICS
October 1, 2020
There is good reason to believe that the SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged in large measure because of novel Big Farm methods of producing hogs and poultry. For an overview of how this is so see the article titled, "How Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations Fuel Pandemics". Some scientific journal articles about this are here and here and here.
A book about this, published before the SARS-CoV-2 virus emerged, titled Big Farms Make Big Flu, describes how Big Money protects the new Big Farm methods because they are very profitable even though it is known that they increase the risk of very dangerous pandemic viruses emerging. The same author has a new post-Covid-19 book out also, titled Dead Epidemiologists: On the Origins of COVID-19.
NO! COVID-19 IS NOT A "PLANDEMIC"
Pandemics and near-pandemic epidemics are a REGULAR occurrence, and in recent decades are even more frequent because of the changes in the way Big Farms produce hogs and poultry (which is, by the way, mainly in China) for world consumption (as noted above.)
What the "plandemic" fokls, in their faulty "logic," cite as evidence that the pandemic is a "plandemic" is not, in fact, such evidence at all.
The fact that the ruling class uses something (be it Hurricane Katrina or the Covid-19 pandemic) as a pretext for clamping down on personal liberties or implementing selfish policies they could not otherwise implement (as it did in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina) is, contrary to the "plandemic" folk's faulty "logic," NOT even one iota of evidence that the ruling class planned Hurricane Katrina or the Covid-19 pandemic.
The fact that Dr. Fauci "predicted" the 2020 pandemic in a 2017 speech is NOT evidence the ruling class planned the pandemic. Fauci's speech merely was a speech pointing out--as everybody who studies contagious diseases knew--that pandemics occur inevitably and that it is necessary to prepare for them. According to the "plandemic" folk's "logic," the fact that I can confidently "predict" that there will be a fatal automobile accident next month means that I have planned such an accident.
The "plandemic" folk's "logic" fails to understand the difference between real evidence of a conspiracy versus non-evidence. The 9/11 Truthers understand the difference. This is why they point to real evidence that the official 9/11 story is bogus; they show that it violates the laws of physics and that it is self-contradictory and that there are eyewitnesses (in the collapsing towers) to its falseness. They don't stupidly argue that since G.W. Bush used 9/11 as a pretext for invading Muslim nations that therefore it must have been an inside job. I have an article that presents actual evidence 9/11 was an inside job ( https://www.pdrboston.org/9-11 and in the articles it links to also).
The "plandemic" folk's "logic" consists of vapid "I want to believe, therefore I do believe."
What the "plandemic" folk's fail to grasp is that if the Covid-19 pandemic were exactly what the official story says it is, then the rulers would be behaving exactly as they are in fact behaving. Why? Because ruling classes must act in a manner that maintains at least a certain minimum of credibility in the eyes of the general public that they have, and act upon, a real concern for the welfare of the general public. When ruling classes lose this credibility they hasten the day of revolution, which they understand. What this means is that the behavior of the ruling class during the pandemic (including its selfishness and hostility to liberty) in no way constitutes even one iota of evidence that the pandemic is not simply the latest pandemic in a long series of such things throughout human history, just as Hurricane Katrina was simply the latest catastrophic hurricane in a long series of such hurricanes throughout human history.
Most of the general public understands that things such as stay-at-home and mask policies are for the common good during a pandemic. People try to implement these policies because they think mutual aid is a positive value to live by. Sure, they are angry at the way the ruling class fails to implement these policies in the just, egalitarian, manner they should be implemented (as discussed here). But it is only a small minority who--out of a combination of selfishness and stupidity and ignorance--equate these policies with tyranny. Note that the leaders of the forces equating these policies with tyranny are not at all pro-egalitarian: they are attracted to Trump and the Confederate Flag and pro-capitalism libertarianism. The "plandemic" folk's who are not already in that anti-egalitarian camp are sliding into it.
