I have mentioned Satanists before. Most people’s reaction to Satanists is derision. Bunch of silly buggers moaning prayers to a goat-headed bodybuilder. Upside-down crosses and defiled altars. Load of nonsense.
It does not matter what you or I think or believe about it all. Satanists believe it all and if they believe they have to kill you in horrible ways, they will do it. Whether there is any truth in their beleifs is of no consequence. You will be just as dead either way.
Santaists are even worse. Bunch of fat guys who chant Ho ho ho while beating you to death with a sock full of presents and ramming a fully decorated Norway spruce up… well, let’s not get graphic. Let’s just mention that the wings on plastic pixies have sharp edges.
Whether Allah exists or not, there are many who are happy to blow themselves (and anyone around them) into prime-grade mince in the belief that their mince will then be eaten by 72 very fat virgins in Heaven. Or something. Doesn’t matter if they are right or not. You are just as dead either way.
Those are not conspiracy theories.They are really happening. Except the Santaists, which is not yet absolutely proven but I have seen too many smiling fat boys to dismiss it entirely. Anyone who smiles that much is up to something.
So now there are new things to laugh at. Agenda 21. Common Purpose. Marxist doctrine. Population reduction on a massive scale. These things all sound just plain silly but there are those who believe in them absolutely and increasingly, they have the power to do something about it. Whether you or I consider then silly is of no consequence. We will end up just as dead all the same. We’ll die laughing.
And now, Ebola
This is an extremely nasty virus which pretty much dissolves its victims from the inside. There is no cure and no vaccine. Why not? Well, it mostly affects central Africa where few people have any money, and if they have no money, the Pharmers are not interested.
Now it is making its way out of Africa. It’s getting into places where people have lots of money and suddenly, the Pharmers are very interested indeed.
How did it spread? The disease kills so quickly and so comprehensively that it is self-limiting. It cannot normally spread far because the victims don’t live long enough to get anywhere. Now they can get on a plane and be halfway around the world in a matter of hours. The sensible option would be to stop fast travel to and from the infected areas. Has this been done? Not a chance. Now it is potentially in Saudi Arabia. They have loads of money, well worth the Pharmers’ attention.
Worse, both the Americans and Spanish have flown Ebola cases back to their own countries. This is daft on many levels, not least being that the real experts in the disease are all in the affected countries. There are experts-on-paper elsewhere in the world but those with real life experience of the disease and how to contain it are those who have dealt with such outbreaks before.
Is the containment likely to be better in ‘civilised’ countries? It won’t be all that much better than the facilities flown out to Africa, and the cases being flown home are doctors who caught it from their patients. Is there some magical shield around US and European doctors that doesn’t work in Africa?
And yet,. what possible reason could there be for a deliberate spread of such a horrible disease?
There is no profit in developing a vaccine for people with no money. There is a great deal of profit in developing one for a very scared people in a rich country.
Ebola is not influenza. Most people don’t get better and those that do have a seriously shitty time. Its symptoms are horrible. This is a very scary disease indeed.
However, in order for it to make the Pharmers vast profits, it doesn’t actually have to spread. Their vaccine doesn’t actually have to be all that effective, if at all.
All they need is for the news to spread, not the virus.
The news that Saudi Arabia, the US and Europe now have cases of this disease in their countries. That sets up a terrified population who will be demanding protection because they have all forgotten how to look after themselves. The Pharmers can give them protection.
At a price…
