In this interview philosophy professor Sterling Harwood lays out the case for COVID being a bioweapon. He points out that the official timeline, according to which COVID-19 emerged in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, has been proven wrong. In fact, the novel coronavirus was spreading earlier in the US and Europe:

“There are all sorts of reports and findings of the virus before December 1st, when the first patient was known to have COVID in China. John Hankey was able to find French X-rays that have the very distinctive ground glass appearance. They found multiple (such X-rays taken) November 15th. By the way, that’s the same day that President Trump took a mysterious and urgent sudden visit to Walter Reed National Medical Military Center …an unscheduled visit, no heads-up to the hospital. The cover story was that it was the first part of his two-part physical…(but) you don’t even need to leave the White House to have the physical. And Pence was put on notice that the president might be anesthetized, so he should be on stand-by.

“So you can (find COVID-19) as early as November 15th in France, and also, possibly as early as September, in Italy, in the Lombardi region…that doesn’t fit the narrative. People who want to blame COVID on China and justify our record military budget need a credible enemy, and who would be more credible than the Chinese?…

“It supposedly comes from bats—at least that’s the official story that people are settling on. And maybe it went through a pangolin, a more exotic animal than a bat. And then it (supposedly) emerged from nature in that way, where it has a spike that fits human lung tissue the way a lock fits into a key. And this is relevant because the tight fit means you can’t cough it (up). It’s a dry cough. You can’t cough it loose. Your body’s natural defense system is to deal with it once you cough it loose. But you can’t cough it up.

“It almost seems designed to be particularly nasty. Your natural defenses just can’t get rid of it. So they overreact with a cytokine storm, where your body releases everything it’s got at once, and you can die from your own fluids being chalk full of inflammatory cells and fluids.

“So how did they get that tight fit? It seems like a purposeful feature.

“One more thing is that it attacks so many different organ systems. It attacks the lungs, of course. But it also attacks the kidneys, and the heart, and the brain. It causes ‘brain fog’ as it’s called. It penetrates the blood-brain barrier, which is not unique, but it’s what you’d expect from a bioweapon. And it also attacks the blood vessels. So, holy cow! There are only a few things that it doesn’t attack!”

Sterling Harwood teaches philosophy at Evergreen Valley College in San Jose, CA. He holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Cornell University, and is also a lawyer in private practice. His most recent book is The Greatest Mystery of the Beatles: Critical Thinking on Paul is Dead & the Skeptical Sixties.

    The five key events in the fake pandemic Dec
    22
    by Jon Rappoport

    December 22, 2020

    This article is a summary. I’ve written extensively on each of the five key events.

    ONE: The false claim that a new virus was discovered and isolated.

    No true isolation has been performed. The so-called genetic sequencing of the virus was actually a concoction, a cobbling together of pieces of data referencing segments of RNA. These segments were PRESUMED to be parts of the new virus—but researchers didn’t have the virus, so their presumptions amounted to fraud.

    TWO: The erecting of a diagnostic test (PCR) for the virus they didn’t have. Obviously, no such test has meaning. It is built on the same sorts of absurd assumptions that led to the fictional discovery of the virus. However, strategically speaking, the test has produced millions of “positive results,” which are taken to mean “infected by the virus.” On this foundation of sand, the lockdowns were declared.

    THREE: The Chinese lockdown of 50 million citizens, for no medical reason. This unprecedented event provided the model for other governments, and for the CDC and the World Health Organization. Now it was “acceptable” to imprison the global population and wreak economic devastation across the planet.

    FOUR: The absurd computer prediction of 500,000 deaths in the UK and two million in the US, made by historically failed modeler, Neil Ferguson. His institute at the Imperial College of London is bankrolled by Bill Gates. Ferguson’s predictions were used to convince Trump and Boris Johnson that states of emergency and lockdowns were necessary.

    FIVE: The forced premature deaths of millions of elderly people across the world—which were falsely called “COVID-19 deaths.”

    These people were and are suffering from multiple long-term health conditions, made far worse by decades of medical treatment with toxic drugs. Terrified by a COVID diagnosis, then isolated from family and friends, they give up and die.

  4. This article is patently ridiculous. What purpose does it serve for the virus to have a spike “that fits human lung tissue the way a lock fits into a key. And this is relevant because the tight fit means you can’t cough it” up or out.

    The virus can’t replicate unless it’s able to enter the cell and use the cells own functions to clone it’s RNA/DNA strands.

    The virus doesn’t exit the same way it entered. The virus clones itself to the point that the cell dies and the cell wall bursts and the viruses spill out looking for new hosts to infect and start the process anew.

    So, getting stuck in the ACE2 receptor like a key in a doorknob has little value for our little virus friend(s).

    Now, the spike is used like a key by the virus which when it finds the appropriate receptor, ACE2, and uses that to open the door to the cell and it’s RNA cloning mechanism.

    Others have suggested that the Rona is not the cause of all the lung damage but a result of a different pathogen like Tuberculosis.

    To get an understanding of what might be going on it might be helpful to read the works of Bill Sardi.

  5. I’m surprised that Ft. Detrick was mentioned during the discussion but the “mysterious respiratory illness” that struck the Greenspring Retirement Community in Springfield, VA, in June and July of 2019, wasn’t mentioned.

    I wonder if the people involved in that outbreak were silenced with payoffs and/or threats? I can’t believe it’s not the subject of scrutiny.

    Can you imagine if the same thing had happened at some retirement community in China back in June and July of 2019? Can you imagine if the Wuhan lab had been ordered to close down due to some unspecified “breaches of containment” right around the same time that people in some old folks’ homes 50 miles away were becoming ill with a “mysterious respiratory illness”? The U.S. mainstream media would be screaming…ScReAmInG…SCREAMING about it. But because it happened here all we get is a stony silence (which I take as certain proof that the mystery illness was COVID-19).

  6. I contracted the virus approximately June 15,2019. I was in the hospital for six days – doctors did not know what I had other than a virus. Seven weeks ago I got it again – EXACT same symptoms and I have a resulting condition similar to Parkinson’s – ironically my PCD set an appointment with one of the Infectious Disease doctors that treated me the first time. I personally know two people that got it in mid Oct. of 2019 – all of us came down with it after air travel.

  8. German virologist Alexander Kekule’s evidence indicates “an undetected outbreak of the original virus in Northern Italy in the early weeks of 2020” — weeks before it was officially detected in Italy. About 99.5 percent of the coronavirus spreading throughtout the world is a variant mutating in North Italy, and is more aggressive than the Wuhan variant.

  9. Merry Christmas Kevin.

    I’m both of yours Elder and left the States over 40 years ago.
    I’m a bonafide *yankee doodle dandy* with roots going back 300 years.

    Why do I mention this before proceeding?
    Well, let’s just say I’m quite well-versed in most subjects, competent in understanding *american culture*(cough-cough) and, have avoided the 24/7 continual bombardment of the ‘”Oh Say Can You See…”-mainstream media’ programming for 40+ years.
    i.e. fully understand your discussion minus 99% of the endemic contemporary historical narrative brainwashing.

    To my point.
    Mr Harwood’s attempt to understand & explain the possibilities of a bioweapon-deployment is commendable though quite ‘provincial’ imo.
    Your own understanding Kevin of historical & contemporary events are without question of the highest standard in comparison to most Americans.

    Now, let me pose a question to the 2 of You:

    “Considering You are living in the primarily *controlled narrative*-paradigm of TPTB(Anglo-America Branch), and, are dealing with a *controlled opposition-gatekeeper* Truth Community media(English speaking) among others for your primary ‘information sources’ for a formation of your own opinions and own ideas, have You ever considered You are still way-off target on who the real perps are and their true motives?”.

    Case in point to ponder:
    From Gary Allen’s *None Dare Call It Conspiracy(1971)* page #4 –
    “Those who believe that major world events result from planning are laughed at for believing in the “conspiracy theory of history.” Of course, no one in this modern day and age really believes in the conspiracy theory of history -except those who have taken the time to study the subject. When you think about it, there are really only two theories of history. Either things happen by accident neither planned nor caused by anybody, or they happen because they are planned and somebody causes them to happen. In reality, it is the “accidental theory of history” preached in the unhallowed Halls of Ivy which should be ridiculed….
    If you believe it is all an accident or the result of mysterious and unexplainable tides of history, you will be regarded as an “intellectual” who understands that we live in a complex world. If you believe that something like 32,496 consecutive coincidences over the past forty years stretches the law of averages a bit, you are a kook!

    Why is it that virtually all “reputable” scholars and mass media columnists and commentators reject the cause and effect or conspiratorial theory of history? Primarily, most scholars follow the crowd in the academic world just as most women follow fashions. To buck the tide means social and professional ostracism….

    …Most people are highly reluctant to admit that they have been conned or have shown poor judgment. To inspect the evidence of the existence of a conspiracy guiding our political destiny from behind the scenes would force many of these people to repudiate a lifetime of accumulated opinions. It takes a person with strong character indeed to face the facts and admit he has been wrong even if it was because he was uninformed. Such was the case with the author of this book….”.

    Ok Kevin.
    You know more than most about Iran.
    So.
    Question: “Do You remember BB Nutandyahoo last autumn (october-november) being quoted as saying that He had a ‘big surprise’ waiting/prepared for the Iranians”?
    Perhaps it was what was said and deleted when the *nut* was in Warsaw at that extortion-conference.
    https://www.politico.eu/article/ahead-of-peace-meeting-in-warsaw-netanyahu-threatens-war-with-iran/
    One thing I do know is, the *nut* did say he had a “big surprise for Iran” and, all references to that statement totally disappeared within 1 week.
    So.
    Do You remember this Kevin?
    If so, I’d like to continue….’this part of the covid19-story’ that no one is talking about.
    Could be a real ‘jaw-dropper’ if ya’know what I mean.

  12. Fake virus, fake test, fake numbers and now a fake vaccine for the livestock. CDC refuses to run legitimate test of vaccinated children vs. unvaccinated but this Dr. did and lost his license:https://www.bitchute.com/video/ssCyDzmwbqoq/

    The truth about the success of vaccines: By reporter Jon Rappaport:
    In the age of COVID, vaccination looms large. As in mandatory. And of course, toxic.

    I’ve already covered two new vaccine technologies, one of which has already been pushed forward, to “protect” people from a virus that has never been properly proven to exist.

    DNA vaccines, aka gene therapy, permanently alter recipients’ genetic makeup in unknown ways. RNA vaccines (Pfizer’s, just approved for COVID) can cause auto-immune reactions—which means the body attacks itself.

    In this piece, I want to take a look at a few fundamentals about vaccination. In particular, the claim that vaccines have done a fantastic job of reducing case numbers of diseases, and therefore all criticisms of these injections are irrelevant.

    From his bio: “Richard Moskowitz was born in 1938, and educated at Harvard (B.A.) and New York University (M.D.). After medical school he did 3 years of graduate study in Philosophy at the University of Colorado in Boulder on a U. S. Steel Fellowship.”

    “He took his internship at St. Anthony’s Hospital, Denver, and has been practicing family medicine since 1967, as well as attending about 800 home births. With a background in Oriental medicine and other forms of natural healing, Dr. Moskowitz studied homeopathy with George Vithoulkas in Greece and Rajan Sankaran and others in India.”

    In 1987, while writing my first book, AIDS INC., I had a long conversation on the phone with Richard about vaccination. It was my first trip exploring vaccines as a form of immune-system suppression.

    I had already seen that AIDS was actually a lumping together of various immune-system problems, none of which needed HIV as an explanation.

    I still recall that phone conversation with Richard Moskowitz. I came away from it with an idea about how vaccines could be touted and trumpeted as the reason for vastly reducing cases of diseases, when in fact the reduction of visible symptoms was occurring—a very different thing.

    If vaccines were lowering immune-system response, then the acute, vigorous, and all-out inflammatory reaction to germs would be eliminated. And it IS that acute reaction which creates the visible symptoms (rashes, spots, etc.).

    Vaccination equals no cases of measles, the experts say. But really, as a result of vaccination, it’s just the visible rash that is missing, while something more dangerous, out of view, is going on in the body.

    I’m printing here an excerpt from Richard’s article (written years ago), The Case Against Immunizations. The article is based on a classical view of germs and the action of the human immune system. The pros and cons of germ theory itself are a different matter, about which I’ve spoken and written in other places.

    Note: Although the RNA COVID vaccines deploy a technology different from classical vaccines, they still rely on antibody response as the key to “producing immunity.” But that response is only one of many natural reactions in the body which maintain health and ward off disease.

    From Dr. Richard Moskowitz’s brilliantly articulated article, The Case Against Immunizations:

    “It is dangerously misleading, and indeed the exact opposite of the truth, to claim that a vaccine renders us ‘immune’ to or protects us against an acute disease, if in fact it only drives the disease deeper into the interior and causes us to harbor it chronically instead, with the result that our responses to it become progressively weaker, but show less and less of a tendency to heal or resolve themselves spontaneously. What I propose, then, is to investigate as thoroughly and objectively as I can how the vaccines actually work inside the human body, and to begin by simply paying attention to the implications of what we already know. Consider the process of falling ill with and recovering from a typical acute disease, such as the measles, in contrast with what we can observe following administration of the measles vaccine.”

    “…Once inhaled by a susceptible individual, the [measles] virus undergoes a prolonged period of silent multiplication, first in the tonsils, adenoids, and accessory lymphoid aggregations of the nasopharynx; later in the regional lymph nodes of the head and neck; and eventually, several days later, it passes into the blood and enters the spleen, the liver, the thymus, and the bone marrow, the ‘visceral’ organs of the immune system. Throughout this ‘incubation’ period, which lasts from 10 to 14 days, the patient typically feels quite well, and experiences few or no symptoms of any kind.”

    “By the time that the first symptoms of measles appear, circulating antibodies are already detectable in the blood, and the height of the symptomatology coincides with the peak of the antibody response. In other words, the ‘illness’ that we call the measles is simply the definitive effort of the immune system to clear this virus from the blood. Notice also that this expulsion is accomplished by sneezing and coughing, i. e., via the same route through which it entered in the first place. It is abundantly clear from the above that the process of mounting and recovering from an acute illness like the measles involves a general mobilization of the immune system as a whole, including inflammation of the previously sensitized tissues at the portal(s) of entry, activation of leukocytes, macrophages, and the serum complement system, and a host of other mechanisms, of which the production of circulating antibodies is only one, and by no means the most important.”

    “Such splendid outpourings indeed represent the decisive experiences in the normal physiological maturation of the immune system in the life of a healthy child. For recovery from the measles not only protects children from being susceptible to it again, no matter how many more times they may be exposed to it, but also prepares them to respond promptly and effectively to any other infections they may encounter in the future. The ability to mount a vigorous acute response to infection must therefore be reckoned among the most fundamental requirements of health and well-being that we all share.”

    “By contrast, the live but artificially attenuated measles-virus vaccine is injected directly into the blood, by-passing the normal port of entry, and sets up at most a brief inflammatory reaction at the injection site, or perhaps in the regional lymph nodes, with no local sensitization at the normal portal of entry, no ‘incubation period,’ no generalized inflammatory response, and no generalized outpouring. By ‘tricking’ the body in this fashion, we have accomplished precisely what the entire immune system seems to have evolved to prevent: we have placed the virus directly into the blood, and given it free and immediate access to the major immune organs and tissues, without any obvious mechanism or route for getting rid of it.”

    “The result is the production of circulating antibodies against the virus, which can in fact be measured in the blood; but this antibody response occurs as an isolated technical feat, without any overt illness to recover from, or any noticeable improvement in the general health of the recipient. Indeed I submit that exactly the opposite is true, that the price we have to pay for these antibodies is the persistence of viral elements in the blood for long periods of time, perhaps permanently, which in turn carries with it a systematic weakening of our capacity to mount an acute response, not only to the measles, but to other infections as well.”

    “Far from producing a genuine immunity, then, my suspicion and my fear is that vaccines act by interfering with and even suppressing the immune response as a whole, in much the same way that radiation, chemotherapy, corticosteroids, and other anti-inflammatory drugs do. Artificial immunization focuses on antibody production, a single aspect of the immune process, disarticulates it, and allows it to stand for the whole, in much the same way as chemical suppression of an elevated blood pressure is accepted as a valid substitute for genuine healing or cure of the patient whose blood pressure has risen. It is the frosting on the cake, without the cake. The worst part of this counterfeiting is that it becomes more difficult, if not impossible, for vaccinated children to mount a normally acute and vigorous response to infection, by substituting for it a much weaker, essentially chronic response, with little or no tendency to heal itself spontaneously.”

    This is an explanation of vaccination which chops down the claim that vaccines are wonderful because they eliminate cases of disease.

    With experimental RNA COVID vaccines, who knows how long the injected RNA lingers in the body, and what effects it produces over time? The relatively short clinical trials certainly don’t offer useful conclusions. The CDC blithely assures us that once the injected RNA offers “instructions to cells of the body,” the cells destroy the RNA. Sounds magical. The cells wait, receive instructions, THEN destroy the messenger.

    And again, as I stated above, RNA technology has, in the past, caused auto-immune reactions, in which the body basically attacks itself.

  13. There has never been in history so many contradictory theories about the origin or spread of a disease as we have today with Corona. At least with the Black Death, the consensus of the opinion was that it was caused by the “Wrath of God” because of the sins of man. With the 1918 Flu, the consensus of the opinion was that it was caused by an infectious agent that hadn’t been identified yet because they didn’t have microscopes that could see it. Scientist knew that it was an infectious agent because they were able to infect animals with it. They also knew that the infection was caused by an infectious agent smaller than their finest filters. Once the electron microscope was developed in the early 30’s and with it the science of virology, we greatly increased our knowledge of disease prevention and control. After the 1930’s through the development of antibiotics and inoculations, there seemed to be no limit as to what medicine could do in the realm of conquering diseases, the path was clear cut. Fast forward to the present day and our experience with the Corona virus, there seems to be an intentional effort to confuse the public about the disease, we’re told that it’s caused by a virus, then others are saying that the virus has never been isolated. We’re told to wear masks and to get a shot, but some sources are saying that we still need to wear a mask after the shot. Some sources are saying that the Coronavirus originated in China, while others say that the US created it at Fort Detrick. Any doctors or public officials that question the “official” government narrative about the Corona virus are fired or at the very least sanctioned by their peers and the media. Then there’s the stories of the deaths of researchers who have been doing work related to Coronaviruses such as Canadian researcher Frank Plummer who died in Africa back in February 2020

    my husband & i contracted either covid or it’s parent in WA state in late september 2019. his 92yr old mother was in a high end nursing home; 80 to 90% of the residents died over the late summer, but the staff were ordered to pretend the residence was still @ full occupancy. staff confided this to us but it was patently obvious the place was utterly empty, the resident nurse had left, the chef as well as the driver & general manager. the mom had issues breathing & wanted to go to our island home. we cared for her through her last weeks. immediately on our return to canada, we came down with it. our gp had no idea what we had, but my husband & both knew it was neither a normal pneumonia nor a flu. left on our own, we used every vitamin, mineral, every herb (esp. ooo), but very high doses of curcumin, b’s, c, zinc. we slept sleeping up b/c we couldn’t breathe laying down. when i coughed (which was continual) i could actually watch the mucus travelling 20′. we survived, thanks to alternative meds. i’m left with cervical spondylosis, fibromuscular dysplasia, charmingly referred to as a string of pearls, &cervical osteoarthritis, as well as damaged lungs. my husband’s form targeted his lungs & bowels, leaving him with embarrassing digestive issues. i’m taking 23/24000 mil of curcumin a day, lots of msm, & the full abrahm hoffer protocol while i await my appt with a neurosurgeon. from the mri he’s determined my difficulties are worth rushing. fortunately the pain is manageable with tylenol.

  20. Listen to these two MICIMATT academia psychopaths discuss giving people money to get vaccinated even if it is life threatening and even if it causes infertility justify doing it by saying that if someone is given a choice, it is not coersion, ( even though the alternative to that choice for many would be homelessness, starvation, and slow death as the alternative to the vaccine.) Kevin Barrett who ran as a Libertarian Medicare for all 2008 congressional candidate thankfully lost in the general election, since he would have been a law maker who finds no moral objections in forcing people to choose between two life threatening choices, and this idea was proposed by PhD. Philosopher from Evergreen Valley College in San Jose and was graduated from Cornell, that has flat out rejected the philosophy of Socratic ethics as well as the Socratic method for logic in which the Dr. of philosophy just totally assassinated in his one hour infomercial on Astra Zenica, since vaccines do not work, cause serious health threats for the vaccinated, public health contagion threats, and force people to expose themselves to a virus or bacteria that they are doing in order to avoid contracting the virus that they just injected themselves with, which is insane, and anyone that understands logic, realizes that. Scum bag low lifes! Keep your children away from these dangerous predatory psychopaths, whose ethics are limited to destroying other people and their lives strictly for their own benefit. Their own benefit is the greater good evidently as far as they are concerned! They are such scum that they are totally oblivious to how morally outrageous, repugnant, and offensive they sound! 

    He has a PhD. in philosophy and is too incompetent to think, or he was hired by the CIA or Astra Zeneca, it is one or any combination of the three.

    You are not entitled to be treated politely! You are entitled to be treated as psychopaths!

    Shame! Shame! Shame!

    Kevin Barrett believes all of the following :
    A. America should have anarchy.
    B. America should have a theocracy.
    C. America should have the Bill of Rights.
    D. Americans must sacrifice their rights granted to them in the Bill of Rights in order to enter into society.
    E. Kevin Barrett believes in running for congress which he did in 2008.
    F. Kevin Barrett believes that he is a truther.

    When I confronted Kevin Barrett on this website regarding the impossibility of believing in all of these things, granting him the benefit if the doubt that perhaps he changed his mind, Kevin Barrett answered in the only answer that he could think of, Read Tolstoy. That is quite a lengthy dealay tactic, considering that that would be 11,000 pages, and that Tolstoy never wrote about Kevin Barrett since he was not alive then, oh, and Tolstoy was a novelist.

    Kevin Barrett also believes that there are high IQ psychopaths. LOL!

    Not talking hospital level, but people having lingering, longer term effects consistent with multi-system inflammatory damage. People with chronic illness often find themselves unable to work and earn as they did, becoming dependent on medical and pharma treatments, and end up with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo that provides these things for them, as well as seemingly keeping them safe, and fed. The State becomes your Nurse and Nanny. Not sure yet how widespread (or not) this is turning out to be, but over here it’s there to an extent, and our overall COVID load isn’t high.

    All infections can cause a systemic immune response, but this seems to be more specific to COVID than to other common viral infections, which fits with what he’s saying about the spike-protein. Saw some multi-system failure with H1N1, but I’m more used to seeing multi-system inflammatory events with bacterial infections.

  22. The CDC found 4.7 million cases of Covid-19 in the US before it was in China, agreeing with findings in Italy and France. 

    Tests of blood samples taken in the US from December 13 last year revealed evidence of antibodies for the Covid-19 virus. 

    The samples were taken more than two weeks before the December 31 official confirmation of the outbreak in Wuhan and a month earlier than the first confirmed case of Covid-19 in the US on January 19.

    Not saying it is a weapon, but if it is, maybe the goal is demographic: population destruction through widespread sterility. The virus can produce it. Maybe the vaccine too.

    Now which of our oligarchs have been pushing for depopulation?

    “Do You remember BB Nutandyahoo last autumn (october-november) being quoted as saying that He had a ‘big surprise’ waiting/prepared for the Iranians”?

    And do you remember that that very same BB shut down Israeli embassies all over the world on Oct. 30, 2019. He claimed it was due to a labor strike by embassy employees. Interesting coincidence, don’t you think?

    If you believe it is all an accident or the result of mysterious and unexplainable tides of history, you will be regarded as an “intellectual” who understands that we live in a complex world. If you believe that something like 32,496 consecutive coincidences over the past forty years stretches the law of averages a bit, you are a kook!

    I like your kind of reasoning. Extending it a bit, I note that the “kooks” are most often retired people who are past the point of having their jobs cancelled out from under them. A real conspiracy theorist might even suggest that’s why they’re going after us geezers with this virus. Not me, of course.

    I too have found that what is missing from a story is just as important as what is in the story, or even more so.

    And the best way to determine the real story is to understand the game and know the players.

  28. This spike key fitting human lock argument is rubbish.
    If it didn’t fit, it wouldn’t affect humans.
    If there were 50 million mutations, we would be talking about the one that fit, not the 49,999,999 that didn’t fit (like a key in a lock).

    Those who believe that major world events result from planning are laughed at for believing in the “conspiracy theory of history.” [snip]….

    There is, of course, the third possibility which is the most likely reality: that there are genuine conspiracies undertaken by transnational cabals of individuals, but that a goodly part of the time the plans turn to shit because of unanticipated variables.

    Hilarity ensues, so long as you’re observing from a safe distance. The cabal usually still gets to clip everyone’s ticket and gets to buy palaces for themselves, but occasionally serfs die in the tens of thousands when the plan was for things to go much smoother.

    The problem with ‘pure’ conspiracy theorising, is that its core tenet is that the outcomes are the planned outcomes.

    This requires two groups of people to be almost omniscient and infallible:

     ① the people in the conspiracy; and
     ② the underlings required to put the conspiracy into operational effect.

    I have no doubt that the inner circle are quite clever people, and can cobble together a nice plan to transfer vast amounts of wealth towards themselves if nothing unanticipated happens.

    However there comes a stage where hirelings have to get shit done, which is where things will tend to go off the rails.

    As the Poet Burns quipped:


    In proving foresight may be vain:
    The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ Men
    Gang aft agley,
    An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,
    For promis’d joy!

    .

    Also relevant is the possibility that there are competing factions within a broad conspiracy, or even competing conspiracies: it’s perfectly possible that there are times when a given resource is the objective of more than one conspiracy, and each set of conspirators has imperfect information about the other – although they know for certain that other conspiracies are their adversary.

    Syria after WWI and during the Mandate period, for example (France vs England vs subpopulations in Syria). Palestine during the same period, for that matter.

    Competing factions means that two sets of hirelings will meet on the ground, at which point the shit is likely to hit the fan because hirelings tend not to be very smart.

    Conspiracies that get smacked about the head a lot‘ is the Superior Person’s model of history. To believe in a constantly-successful train of conspiracy is silly supernatural thinking.

    To believe in a constantly-successful train of conspiracy is silly supernatural thinking.

    It was a pretty, word-salad kind of argument until I got gobsmacked by that key, in-your-face, straw-man right at the end. Neither @Veritas X nor any other so-called conspiracy theorist has ever claimed that they were usually successful, let alone “constantly successful.” At best we only claim they were planned with a goal in mind and that the actions taken with that goal in mind changed the course of history.

    History is a sequence of events occurring over a course of time. At the end of, or even in the middle of, any one event in that goal-directed course of action, the conspirators get to evaluate the level of success of their plan and modify it, or even cancel it and start over. They may or may not recognize unintended consequences, but whatever happens they still have changed history.

    A conspiracy is simply a plan thought up and enacted by a group of people, except it is commonly illegal and is done in secret. It’s much like any other plan, say, launching a program of space exploration. Your Challenger rocket may blow up but you diagnose an o-ring failure and begin again. There is nothing supernatural about illegal or immoral actions taken under the table. Or about ferreting out the perps behind them.

    The possibility of competing conspiracies has never stopped any group from indulging in one. Nor should it induce any honest historian from analyzing them for what they were.

    Others have suggested that the Rona is not the cause of all the lung damage but a result of a different pathogen like Tuberculosis.

    Weaponized Anthrax out of Ft. Detrick which was closed by CDC on August 1st, 2019.

    I had a path to teaching jobs in Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Kazakhstan, but chose to stay on the four rural acres my grandparents purchased in 1950 here in Wisconsin. Why? Two reasons: My family wasn’t excited about moving to Malaysia, Bangladesh, or Kazakhstan, and I don’t like the idea of letting the bastards drive me out of my own country.
