As much as Covid-19 is a circuit breaker, a time bomb and an actual weapon of mass destruction (WMD), a fierce debate is raging worldwide on the wisdom of mass quarantine applied to entire cities, states and nations.

Those against it argue Planet Lockdown not only is not stopping the spread of Covid-19 but also has landed the global economy into a cryogenic state – with unforeseen, dire consequences. Thus quarantine should apply essentially to the population with the greatest risk of death: the elderly.

With Planet Lockdown transfixed by heart-breaking reports from the Covid-19 frontline, there’s no question this is an incendiary assertion.

In parallel, a total corporate media takeover is implying that if the numbers do not substantially go down, Planet Lockdown – an euphemism for house arrest – remains, indefinitely.

Michael Levitt, 2013 Nobel Prize in chemistry and Stanford biophysicist, was spot on when he calculated that China would get through the worst of Covid-19 way before throngs of health experts believed, and that “What we need is to control the panic”.

Let’s cross this over with some facts and dissident opinion, in the interest of fostering an informed debate.

The report Covid-19 – Navigating the Uncharted was co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci – the White House face of the fight –, H. Clifford Lane, and CDC director Robert R. Redfield. So it comes from the heart of the U.S. healthcare establishment.

The report explicitly states, “the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.”

On March 19, four days before Downing Street ordered the British lockdown, Covid-19 was downgraded from the status of “High Consequence Infectious Disease.”

John Lee, recently retired professor of pathology and former NHS consultant pathologist, has recently argued that, “the world’s 18,944 coronavirus deaths represent 0.14 per cent of the total. These figures might shoot up but they are, right now, lower than other infectious diseases that we live with (such as flu).”

He recommends, “a degree of social distancing should be maintained for a while, especially for the elderly and the immune-suppressed. But when drastic measures are introduced, they should be based on clear evidence. In the case of Covid-19, the evidence is not clear.”

That’s essentially the same point developed by a Russian military intel analyst.

No less than 22 scientists – see here and here – have expanded on their doubts about the Western strategy.

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, Professor Emeritus of Medical Microbiology at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, has provoked immense controversy with his open letter to Chancellor Merkel, stressing the “truly unforeseeable consequences of the drastic containment measures which are currently being applied in large parts of Europe.”

Even New York governor Andrew Cuomo admitted on the record about the error of quarantining elderly people with illnesses alongside the fit young population.

The absolutely key issue is how the West was caught completely unprepared for the spread of Covid-19 – even after being provided a head start of two months by China, and having the time to study different successful strategies applied across Asia.

There are no secrets for the success of the South Korean model.

South Korea was producing test kits already in early January, and by March was testing 100,000 people a day, after establishing strict control of the whole population – to Western cries of “no protection of private life”. That was before the West embarked on Planet Lockdown mode.

South Korea was all about testing early, often and safely – in tandem with quick, thorough contact tracing, isolation and surveillance.

Covid-19 carriers are monitored with the help of video-surveillance cameras, credit card purchases, smartphone records. Add to it SMS sent to everyone when a new case is detected near them or their place of work. Those in self-isolation need an app to be constantly monitored; non-compliance means a fine to the equivalent of $2,800.

Controlled demolition in effect

In early March, the Chinese Journal of Infectious Diseases, hosted by the Shanghai Medical Association, pre-published an Expert Consensus on Comprehensive Treatment of Coronavirus in Shanghai. Treatment recommendations included, “large doses of vitamin C…injected intravenously at a dose of 100 to 200 mg / kg per day. The duration of continuous use is to significantly improve the oxygenation index.”

That’s the reason why 50 tons of Vitamin C was shipped to Hubei province in early February. It’s a stark example of a simple “mitigation” solution capable of minimizing economic catastrophe.

In contrast, it’s as if the brutally fast Chinese “people’s war” counterpunch against Covid-19 had caught Washington totally unprepared. Steady intel rumbles on the Chinese net point to Beijing having already studied all plausible leads towards the origin of the Sars-Cov-2 virus – vital information that will be certainly weaponized, Sun Tzu style, at the right time.

As it stands, the sustainability of the complex Eurasian integration project has not been substantially compromised. As the EU has provided the whole planet with a graphic demonstration of its cluelessness and helplessness, everyday the Russia-China strategic partnership gets stronger – increasingly investing in soft power and advancing a pan-Eurasia dialogue which includes, crucially, medical help.

Facing this process, the EU’s top diplomat, Joseph Borrell, sounds indeed so helpless: “There is a global battle of narratives going on in which timing is a crucial factor. […] China has brought down local new infections to single figures – and it is now sending equipment and doctors to Europe, as others do as well. China is aggressively pushing the message that, unlike the U.S., it is a responsible and reliable partner. In the battle of narratives we have also seen attempts to discredit the EU (…) We must be aware there is a geo-political component including a struggle for influence through spinning and the ‘politics of generosity’. Armed with facts, we need to defend Europe against its detractors.”

ORDER IT NOW

That takes us to really explosive territory. A critique of the Planet Lockdown strategy inevitably raises serious questions pointing to a controlled demolition of the global economy. What is already in stark effect are myriad declinations of martial law, severe social media policing in Ministry of Truth mode, and the return of strict border controls.

These are unequivocal markings of a massive social re-engineering project, complete with inbuilt full monitoring, population control and social distancing promoted as the new normal.

That would be taking to the limit Secretary of State Mike “we lie, we cheat, we steal” Pompeo’s assertion, on the record, that Covid-19 is a live military exercise: “This matter is going forward — we are in a live exercise here to get this right.”

All hail BlackRock

So as we face a New Great Depression, steps leading to a Brave New World are already discernable. It goes way beyond a mere Bretton Woods 2.0, in the manner that Pam and Russ Martens superbly deconstruct the recent $2 trillion, Capitol Hill-approved stimulus to the U.S. economy.

Essentially, the Fed will “leverage the bill’s $454 million bailout slush fund into $4.5 trillion”. And no questions are allowed on who gets the money, because the bill simply cancels the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for the Fed.

The privileged private contractor for the slush fund is none other than BlackRock. Here’s the extremely short version of the whole, astonishing scheme, masterfully detailed here.

Wall Street has turned the Fed into a hedge fund. The Fed is going to own at least two thirds of all U.S. Treasury bills wallowing in the market before the end of the year.

The U.S. Treasury will be buying every security and loan in sight while the Fed will be the banker – financing the whole scheme.

So essentially this is a Fed/ Treasury merger. A behemoth dispensing loads of helicopter money – with BlackRock as the undisputable winner.

BlackRock is widely known as the biggest money manager on the planet. Their tentacles are everywhere. They own 5% of Apple, 5% of Exxon Mobil, 6% of Google, second largest shareholder of AT&T (Turner, HBO, CNN, Warner Brothers) – these are just a few examples.

They will buy all these securities and manage those dodgy special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) on behalf of the Treasury.

BlackRock not only is the top investor in Goldman Sachs. Better yet: Blackrock is bigger than Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank combined. BlackRock is a serious Trump donor. Now, for all practical purposes, it will be the operating system – the Chrome, Firefox, Safari – of Fed/Treasury.

This represents the definitive Wall Street-ization of the Fed – with no evidence whatsoever it will lead to any improvement in the lives of the average American.

Western corporate media, en masse, have virtually ignored the myriad, devastating economic consequences of Planet Lockdown. Wall to wall coverage barely mentions the astonishing economic human wreckage already in effect – especially for the masses barely surviving, so far, in the informal economy.

For all practical purposes, the Global War on Terror (GWOT) has been replaced by the Global War on Virus (GWOV). But what is not being seriously analyzed is the Perfect Toxic Storm: a totally shattered economy; The Mother of All Financial Crashes – barely masked by the trillions in helicopter money from the Fed and the ECB; the tens of millions of unemployed engendered by the New Great Depression; the millions of small businesses that will simply disappear; a widespread, global mental health crisis. Not to mention the masses of elderly, especially in the U.S., that will be issued an unspoken “drop dead” notice.

Beyond any rhetoric about “decoupling”, the global economy is already, de facto, split in two. On one side, we have Eurasia, Africa and swathes of Latin America – what China will be painstakingly connecting and reconnecting via the New Silk Roads. On the other side, we have North America and selected Western vassals. A puzzled Europe lies in the middle.

A cryogenically induced global economy certainly facilitates a reboot. Trumpism is the New Exceptionalism – so that means an isolationist MAGA on steroids. In contrast, China will painstakingly reboot its market base along the New Silk Roads – Africa and Latin America included – to replace the 20% of trade/exports to be lost with the U.S.

The meager $1,200 checks promised to Americans are a de facto precursor of the much touted Universal Basic Income (UBI). They may become permanent as tens of millions of people will be permanently unemployed. That will facilitate the transition towards a totally automated, 24/7 economy run by AI – thus the importance of 5G.

And that’s where ID2020 comes in.

AI and ID2020

The European Commission is involved in a crucial but virtually unknown project, CREMA (Cloud Based Rapid Elastic Manufacturing) which aims to facilitate the widest possible implementation of AI in conjunction to the advent of a cashless One-World system.

The end of cash necessarily implies a One-World government capable of dispensing – and controlling – UBI; a de facto full accomplishment of Foucault’s studies on biopolitics. Anyone is liable to be erased from the system if an algorithm equals this individual with dissent.

It gets even sexier when absolute social control is promoted as an innocent vaccine.

ID2020 is self-described as a benign alliance of “public-private partners”. Essentially, it is an electronic ID platform based on generalized vaccination. And its starts at birth; newborns will be provided with a “portable and persistent biometrically-linked digital identity.”

GAVI, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, pledges to “protect people’s health “ and provide “immunization for all”. Top partners and sponsors, apart from the WHO, include, predictably, Big Pharma.

At the ID2020 Alliance summit last September in New York, it was decided that the “Rising to the Good ID Challenge” program would be launched in 2020. That was confirmed by the World Economic Forum (WEF) this past January in Davos. The digital identity will be tested with the government of Bangladesh.

That poses a serious question: was ID2020 timed to coincide with what a crucial sponsor, the WHO, qualified as a pandemic? Or was a pandemic absolutely crucial to justify the launch of ID2020?

As game-changing trial runs go, nothing of course beats Event 201, which took place less than a month after ID2020.

ORDER IT NOW

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with, once again, the WEF, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, described Event 201 as “a high-level pandemic exercise”. The exercise “illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences.”

With Covid-19 in effect as a pandemic, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health was forced to issue a statement basically saying they just “modeled a fictional coronavirus pandemic, but we explicitly stated that it was not a prediction”.

There’s no question “a severe pandemic, which becomes ‘Event 201’ would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions”, as spun by the sponsors. Covid-19 is eliciting exactly this kind of “cooperation”. Whether it’s “reliable” is open to endless debate.

The fact is that, all over Planet Lockdown, a groundswell of public opinion is leaning towards defining the current state of affairs as a global psyop: a deliberate global meltdown – the New Great Depression – imposed on unsuspecting citizens by design.

The powers that be, taking their cue from the tried and tested, decades-old CIA playbook, of course are breathlessly calling it a “conspiracy theory”. Yet what vast swathes of global public opinion observe is a – dangerous – virus being used as cover for the advent of a new, digital financial system, complete with a forced vaccine cum nanochip creating a full, individual, digital identity.

The most plausible scenario for our immediate future reads like clusters of smart cities linked by AI, with people monitored full time and duly micro-chipped doing what they need with a unified digital currency, in an atmosphere of Bentham’s and Foucault’s Panopticum on overdrive.

So if this is really our future, the existing world-system has to go. This is a test, this is only a test.

  1. Really? They’re going to stick microchips in us with vaccines?

    I readily admit. I don’t know. It sounds crazy. It sounds like something they would screw up if they tried it. But I might be wrong. Maybe all the bugs are already beta-tested and it’s up and ready to go.

    It probly won’t affect my life. They already got my–and your–number for posting on here.

    But still it’s annoying. I like the Vitamin C thing. For years and years, doctors have been denying the efficacy of Vitamin C. And now that push comes to shove, bang, Vitamin C by the ton. On the other hand, it makes me afraid I won’t be able to obtain my own bag o’ Vit C because there’s a run on that, too, along with everything else.

    I’m just a bunch of on the other hands today. As, I think, Pepe Escobar is.

  2. Kali says:

    Thank you Pepe. Your thoughts mirror my own almost exactly.

    On a very frightening note, yesterday I saw a video: in a block of flats in the UK, a woman recorded as she confronted two housing officers pushing notes under residents doors, informing that their elderly neighbour had died of cov19. The problem was that she’d just seen him ALIVE 10 minutes earlier, being led to an ambulance by two cops. When she asked the housing officers how long ago they’d been told of the man’s death, they told her “about two hours ago”. Yet he was still alive 10 minutes earlier!

    I’m unable to link to the video directly, but if anyone cares to see for themselves, search for me – kali prajita – on Facebook. My page is set to public. Amongst my posts from today, you’ll see a similar description of the video, but with an edit in front to say that the clip has been linked in the comments.
    And do feel free to look at some of my other posts on there. Planet lock-down needs to come to its senses fast!

    With much love to all,
    Kali.

    Eh, what’s gonna happen is that Cringistan (the west and everyone that implements mass chipping) gets their false utopia, only to be turned into a giant weapons testing ground by literally everyone else after a few years

  4. This expression has always caused be fear & trepidation (& anger) the alliance of “public-private partners“. “Blackrock” indeed. Good God. Like FDR handing the running of WW II over to the Mafia….

  6. Quote from Pompeo: “This matter is going forward — we are in a live exercise here to get this right.”

    We are being taught how to react in the event of attack by a biological weapon.

    Preparing for the possibility of biological attack would be a wise move if our leaders were committed to peace but extremely worrisome since our leaders are bloody minded warmongers.

  7. Some good links to dissenting opinions about the mandatory viral panic. Let’s make this comment thread a source for others.

    For a philosophical dissenter, Peter Hitchens has been heroically posting his dissent for weeks now at the Mail On Sunday:

  8. Two more actions to be aware of, pieces of the puzzle that only affirm the picture Pepe Escobar sketches:

    # 1. White House Releases National Strategy for 5G Security
    https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2020/03/white-house-releases-national-strategy-5g-security/164164/
    Trump had nothing to do on Monday, Mar 23, 2020 so he signed The Secure 5G and Beyond Act https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/893/text

    Sponsor: Sen. Cornyn, John [R-TX] (Introduced 03/27/2019)
    Committees: Senate – Commerce, Science, and Transportation
    Committee Meetings: 07/24/19 10:30AM
    Committee Reports: S. Rept. 116-184
    Latest Action: 03/23/2020 Became Public Law No: 116-129.

    The 7-page policy document sets forth the president’s “vision for America to lead the development, deployment, and management of secure and reliable 5G communications infrastructure worldwide, arm-in-arm with [its] closest partners and allies.”

    Its release marks President Trump’s initial move to meet the requirements laid out in the Secure 5G and Beyond Act, which he signed Monday. The new law directs the president to produce a strategy “to ensure security of next generation wireless communications systems and infrastructure,” within 180 days of its enactment.

    and:

    The ** quietly-launched ** [because Trump does everything significant “quietly”] document outlines four distinct lines of effort that the bill called for it to include. They each briefly lay out the administration’s approaches and aims to:
    facilitate the domestic rollout of 5G;
    assess the risks and identify the core security principles of 5G infrastructure;
    assess the risks to United States economic and national security during development and deployment of 5G infrastructure worldwide, and
    promote responsible global development and deployment of 5G.

    A senior administration official reiterated to Nextgov Wednesday that the publication fulfills one of the administration’s key obligations under the new bill and it is meant to complement the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Act, which Trump also recently signed into law.

    to wit:
    https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/4998

    Sponsor: Rep. Pallone, Frank, Jr. [D-NJ-6] (Introduced 11/08/2019)
    Committees: House – Energy and Commerce
    Committee Reports: H. Rept. 116-352
    Latest Action: 03/12/2020 Became Public Law No: 116-124. (TXT | PDF) (All Actions)

    Further, the official noted that the Secure 5G and Beyond Act also mandated the creation of an implementation plan, which they said will be “much more detailed,” than the initial publication.

    Rolling out 5G is not without controversy, or possible danger to public health.

    At least two recent articles have sought to disabuse the public of the belief that “5G is linked to coronavirus.” They’re probably right, but that does not mean that– and neither article adequately addresses that — 5G might represent public health dangers in its own right and of another kind: give a thought to the proliferation of cancer treatment centers springing up.

    #2. This morning, C Span Washington Journal moderator John McArdle played a clip of Rep. James Clyburn, selected by Nancy Pelosi to propel creation of an “Oversight Committee based on the Truman committee of 1941.”
    beginning @5:30 mark —
    https://www.c-span.org/video/?470911-3/washington-journal-jason-dick-discusses-federal-coronavirus-response&event=470911&playEvent&auto

    Clyburn said his understanding was that the Committee was to ensure that moneys appropriated to counter effects of the national emergency “get to the little people and not end up in the pockets of a few profiteers.”
    Clyburn said he “studied the work of the Truman Committee” —
    https://www.senate.gov/artandhistory/history/common/investigations/Truman.htm

    Resolution passed: March 1, 1941.

    Chairman: Harry S. Truman (D-MO), 1941-1944; James Mead (D-NY), 1944-1946; Harley Kilgore (D-WV), 1946-1947; Ralph Brewster (R-ME), 1947-1948
    . . .
    Origins
    On February 10, 1941, a relatively unknown senator, Democrat Harry S. Truman of Missouri, rose on the Senate floor to deliver a speech that would forever change his destiny. Though the United States officially remained “neutral” to the war raging in Europe, the German invasion and occupation of France and the Low Countries in 1940 prompted action by the U.S. government. President Franklin Roosevelt requested, and Congress hastily appropriated, more than $10.5 billion to bolster national defense buildup. A former small business owner, Truman cautioned against awarding defense contracts in a way that “make[s] the big men bigger and let[s] the little men go out of business or starve to death.” He advised against distributing contracts “on the basis of friendship or political affiliation.” Championing legislative oversight, Truman proposed an “investigation of the national defense program and the handling of contracts.”

    Republicans are resisting the Pelosi-Clyburn-Trumanesque move, arguing that other oversight authorities exist.

    What most impressed me about this proposal, as with a great deal of the rhetoric and analogies used in the propaganda surrounding Coronavirus, is the persistent effort to link this “national emergency” to World War II, its beginnings, its battles, and its aftermaths. Even Queen Elizabeth delivered a speech in which she (or the 93 yr old monarch’s voice-over artist) attempted to resurrect Churchill in rousing the British people to soldier on.

    This linkage to WWII persuades me that the Old Order / International Order has acquired new weapons and strategies to retain the power acquired in the original coup d’etat of the American people in the Wilson and Roosevelt administrations (and subsequent).

    Regarding Truman and how the 1941 Truman committee propelled him to the Vice Presidency and then presidency, Andrew Bacevich delivered an extremely important history lesson in this panel discussion with court historian David Brinkley; ex-Senator Bob Kerry, and Evan Bayh:
    https://www.c-span.org/video/?296526-1/presidents-war&start=4431
    The essence of Bacevich’s comments was that the measures that Truman passed in the months and years after he became president did not originate with him, and in fact spiraled out of control in ways that Truman did not foresee, but that are still making mischief in events today.

    Specifically, after Brinkley enumerated Truman’s innovations —
    National Security Act of 1947
    Creation of the CIA,
    the Department of Defense,
    the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
    the National Security Council
    the National Security Advisor
    the Post of Secretary of Defense
    the Air Force Department, and
    NATO,
    “We are living in a Harry Truman world today; he created what we call our national security state . . .kinda puts America on an all-time war footing,” said Brinkley.

    Bacevich filled in background and “texture:”

    “The National Security Act of 1947 was the most important legislation that Truman signed. . . .As Truman viewed the conduct of WWII, he concluded that the United States needed to unify its military forces.
    Many structures and institutions were created, as Brinkley noted, but the military was decidedly not unified, and that was because the military leaders opposed Truman not only on unification but also on who was going to control nuclear weapons, . . .the size of the defense budget . . . the question of racial integration of US Armed Forces. . . .

    This was a period when civil-military relations were exceedingly dysfunctional and had an adverse effect on policy . . . much like civil-military relations today [the Obama administration] are dysfunctional. . . .
    The national security state that had its origins in the Truman era has delivered very poisonous fruits in the subsequent decades . . . that Truman neither intended nor anticipated.

    Why do we do what we do in places like Afghanistan, when the outcomes are so often counterproductive? We do what we do because the National Security State benefits.”

    I submit that at least a major part of the agenda that is working out behind the coronavirus smokescreen is the effort to perpetuate that National Security State, that has, in the intervening years, become increasingly entwined with Wall Street and with the then-nascent, now virulent state of- and influence of- zionism.

    PS Ironically, this effort to maintain the WWII “International Order”, effort in which Israel – zionists — neocons are fully involved on both sides (i.e. Israel collaborates w/ China on OBOR & else wise), is proof-positive that the holocaust is a hoax.

  10. @SolontoCroesus

    Solonto, you include numerous links to prove us all stupid. I’ll answer you on one: I actually do know quite a bit how cell phones and other radio devices work, earned my bread and butter with it for thirty-five years. All your quoted experts are known disinformation agents. The term ‘non-ionising’ is pure psuedo-drivel. Your microwave oven also uses non-ionising radiation, why do you keep the door on? “Ah, but thos eare high levels, blah blah…” The fact is, there has never, and possibly can never, been any safe dosage level suitable for all systems.
    There are no proven safe levels, just like aspertame, MSG and trans fats.
    I also immediately searched maps in January, and was glad to see my bias confirmed so beautifully. Correlation does not causation imply,though, and currently I am trying to track down maps on vaccination rates (childhood) versus 5G versus outbreak epicentres.
    As for the two 5G bands? Slyly admitting there might be problems at higher frequencies? The cops use that band for TETRA, their live-can microwave transceivers, carried on the chest. Eseophagal cancer are skyrockets amongst them.
    Lastly, somewhat vainly, I submit for your entertainment a short story published about two years ago about 5G and vaccines.

    All your quoted experts are known disinformation agents.

    Which “quoted experts” are disinformation agents?

    I tried to present two sides of the story (on a topic I do not have scientific knowledge of):
    Devra Davis presented information that cell phones can cause long-term physical harm to humans.

    5G is an increase and an expansion of the elements of cell phones that can cause harm to humans.

    Trump “quietly rolled out” a program for expanding use of 5G.

    Immediately, at least two major media sources published push-backs against the notion that 5G may harm humans.

    In my opinion, at very least the American people should be fully informed of the negatives and positives of the expanded use of 5G. We live in an electromagnetic field that is far more widely distributed than viral spray, and neither face masks nor ‘social distancing’ wards off EMF.

    There are numerous websites where you can learn where 5G towers are located in your neighborhood. Is your home a 5G sink? Why are government authorities demanding that you remain in your home to “save a life?”

  12. Sorry, bro’ but your comment was very long and rambling, so I followed the one link on a subject I actually know about, “just to check you”, and the 5G article was one long piece of drivel sponsored by people who get paid to see no wrong.
    That said, when they told me about the pandemic, I immediately started comparing 5G maps to outbreak epicentres. I do not say 5G ‘creates viruses’, but they weaken the organic system. Also, did you follow my link to the story about just one probability of weaponising 5G IN CONJUNCTION WITH VACCINES? That was the little parasitic egg I was trying to lay, see? Putting my meme out there, to live or die.
    But seriously, dude, if you want us to read your long, long articles, open a website of your own. Its a lot of work, but fairly cheap, even free.
    Sorry for this long answer! Here’s the link again?

    Exceptionalism has always been used to drag America into globalism, never out of it. To steal some Pat Buchanan thunder, independence (unfairly labeled “isolationism”) used to be the American way, but that’s a century-old anachronism now, almost forgotten.

    The American people may be more angry but they are no less powerless – arguably a little more so now.
