It is easier to fool the masses, than to convince them that they are being fooled.” (Mark Twain)
And so it happened……….just like that and as from nowhere, along came a novel Corona Virus which stopped Humanity “dead in its tracks”……….bringing almost the entire World to a stand-still.
They call it COVID -19.
Who would have thought that it would take but only a tiny little Virus, microscopic in size, to knock all of Mankind off its pedestal of “misguided arrogance” – forcing us to acknowledge our own insignificance and mortality?
Was it not just yesterday that we had believed ourselves to be such very important and entitled persons………thinking that we were invincible and that we would live forever on this Planet………..convinced that we could do whatever we wanted and not having any fear for the possible consequences for our actions?
Oh how very wrong we were!
In almost a blink of an eye our “false reality” has been shattered – knocking us out of our “comfort zones” and waking us up to the “New Normal” in a World where most of us are being confined to our houses and having no idea as to HOW or IF we will ever get through this Disaster.
Now hundreds of thousands of people have been left dead; many millions more have been infected with the Virus; formidable Businesses were forced to close their doors; many great Industries have been forced to shut down; most Airlines are no longer flying and many will never fly again; Countries have closed their borders; entire Economies have been destroyed; tens of millions of People have lost their Jobs and no longer having the ability to pay the Bills or to look after their Families.
Indeed, this paints a very grim picture and the future outlook being very bleak and uncertain.
It feels like only a couple of weeks ago that we were able to:
- Jump in our cars and go visit family;
- Stop at any McDonalds or other Food-outlet to order takeaways;
- Enjoy a delicious plate of food in a fancy Restaurant;
- Go to the local Pub to have drinks with friends;
- Go to the beach, swim and sunbathe;
- Go vacation at a fancy Resort;
- Fly to an exotic Destination;
- Frequent the Movie Theater on Weekends;
- Visit the local Gym to tone our bodies;
- Attend the Stadium as spectator to support our favorite Sport and Team;
- Go watch an Opera at the Opera House or go to a Theater to see a Play;
- Drive our children to school as per normal routine;
- Hug, hold and kiss a Loved one;
- Go to work and earn an income.
And so many more things can be added to the above List of those everyday things that we were so very used to and of which we had for a very long time taken for granted.
Let us be honest: indeed life for many of us were good…………in many cases even great……………and wherefore most of us had indulged in the numerous “pleasures” that the World had to offer to the point of almost “obscene gluttony”.
But all of that is now sadly over and we find ourselves in new World of COVID-19 where everyone is starring in some kind of surreal “Hollywood Movie” involving “Medical Dress-up” and having to walk around in masks, gloves and other protective gear.
To which numerous so called “experts” are telling us that all of this is the “New Normal”, that we must get used to it and that things will never be the same again.
Ironically, those are also the very same “experts” that in the first place got us to where we are today. Was it not them whom, since December 2019, had confidently been telling us the following?
- That there were no new disease outbreak in Wuhan, China;
- That the Chinese had it all under control;
- That the illness originated from exotic live animals being slaughtered and sold in a “Wet-Market”;
- That the particular virus involved could not be transmitted from Human to Human;
- That the illness was localized and would not spread to other countries;
- That the rest of the World should not shut down air-travel from China and that any such action was to be regarded as being Racist and/or Xenophobic.
- That it was not necessary for us to screen and quarantine people;
- That it was unnecessary and indeed bad for us to wear face masks;
- That the illness, at first was not to be regarded an Epidemic, and then thereafter, even as many people were dropping dead at an alarming rate, that it was not to be regarded a Pandemic;
- That we should not worry about things like social distancing and isolating ourselves as it would be better for society to achieve something called “Herd Immunity”.
If looking for a Scapegoat on who to blame in this whole fiasco is what would make some of us feel better, then it would in hindsight be very easy to point fingers at: (a) China who appears to have been “less than truthful” to the World during the initial stages of this COVID-19 Disease Outbreak in the Wuhan Province; (b) the World Health Organization whose public statements had been contradictory and “all over the place” since the very start; and (c) the collective World Leadership whom had apparently all been “caught off-guards” with this Pandemic and to the extent, that up to this very day, many of them are still exhibiting their complete incompetence every time that they “open their mouths” to speak on the subject matter.
The flimsy excuses being offered that none of them could possibly have known in advance about the looming disaster, are simply not plausible. Reports, pictures and videos of dead bodies and the unfolding disaster in the Chinese Province of Wuhan, were circulating all over the Internet at the time and numerous members of the world News Media had picked up on the story very early on. There was more than enough time for our Global Leaders to sound the alarm; to take the necessary steps to avert an even bigger crisis and to create a situation of adequate preparedness in their respective countries.
Also, the possible outbreak and spread of a disease of this magnitude was never really a secret and has in fact for many years been known due to the collective of World Experts on Infectious Diseases giving numerous warnings about the imminent danger of such an “out-of-control pathogen” running like a wildfire through the World.
And thanks to Hollywood Blockbuster Movies such as “Contagion”, much of the World civilian population had for many years already known about the express dangers and enormity of a World Pandemic caused by an unknown Virus of which speed of spread would be exasperated by Global Travel?
Did our World Leaders not get the Memo on this subject? Do they not read Newspapers or watch the News on Television? Do they not heed the warnings of their own, highly-paid Government Intelligence Agencies and Scientists? Did they all “fall asleep at the wheel” or were they too busy “feeding their own egos” while this COVID-19 disaster was busy descending on us all?
But if that was not bad enough, even now, many months after the initial outbreak of this Corona Pandemic, still none of them seem to be exactly sure as to what is really going on here and/or which course of action would be the most effective to take in order to overcome this Global crisis.
This general confusion surrounding the COVID-19 Outbreak is also very evident among the most prominent members of the World Scientific Community, Virologists, Epidemiologists, Biologists, Doctors and other Medical Experts – as none of them seemingly agreeing or being on the “same page”?
Some are advocating for the strict enforcement of “Lockdowns” of Society and the necessity to Quarantine people to their own homes – even suggesting that it may take a further two years before the “Lockdowns” are lifted and that people should really only rejoin society if they have achieved “Immunity Certificates” by means of having anti-bodies to the COVID-19 Virus or having been Vaccinated.
That is in direct contradiction to some of their colleagues who are convinced that that the whole response to the Corona Virus thus far has been incorrect and exaggerated; that the Death Toll is inaccurate and probably inflated; that “Lockdowns” are in fact the absolute wrong thing to do; and that we should nurture, strengthen and trust our own Immune Systems as opposed to wanting to rely on Pharmaceutical Drugs and future Vaccines.
And still there are also other, highly respected Experts in the fields of Medicine, Virology and Epidemiology that question the very existence of the COVID-19 due to incorrect protocols having been followed during the isolation / extraction process of the said Virus in Laboratories?
In other words, we may be completely wrong about what exactly it is that we are dealing with here and that it is yet unknown as to what the best course of action is that we should take in order to address it??
Meaning that almost five months into this Global Pandemic and all that our highly paid World Leaders and their appointed Experts can definitively tell us, is that we must wash our hands with soap and warm water and that we should cough and sneeze into our own elbows???
Amidst all of this chaos and confusion, those in Power through their “accomplices” in the Main Stream Media and the mouths of Celebrities, tell us not to ask questions nor to think for ourselves – but that instead we should all just shut-up, be obedient, stay in our homes and to continue to quarantine ourselves. Never mind the absolute financial ruin that many of us are now facing in our personal lives and never mind that millions of us will never find another job nor be able to earn an income again.
We are on a daily basis being bombarded with this one message: that this is the “New Normal”, that things will never go back again to how it was just a couple of months ago – and that, although they themselves are clueless with no clear plan of action as to what next to do, we all must just sit in our homes and accept our new Reality?
It is also interesting to note that those very same people who are telling us these “most extreme” and “very fearful things” about COVID – 19, are also strangely very unified in their insistence that we, the civilian population of the World, should BELIEVE in Science, that we should LISTEN to Science and that we should all ADHERE to Science.
According to them, Science is the absolute and the only answer to our problems?
But whereas nobody can really deny the significance and importance of Science to the Human Race, many will argue that Science is not the Alpha and Omega of all things and that such is merely one of the many “dynamic tools in the arsenal” available to mankind by which to address the many dangers that threaten our Planet and to help us overcome the many challenges that we face in our lives on a daily basis.
In regards to which efforts by the World Political Leadership and the Main Stream Media to literally “shove Science down our throats”, many people are now starting to ask a very simple but fair question:
“How can we ever TRUST Science if Science has for decades now been trying to convince us that there is NO God and that Mankind, the Earth and the Universe had come about by mere co-incidence when two tiny particles collided billions of years ago?”
Hhhmmmmmmmm………..something does not sit quite right with this Picture as painted above and one cannot help but get this eerie feeling that something may be very wrong here?
Maybe the so called “New World Order” that over the years so many commentators had talked about and others had written about, turns out NOT to be such a “Conspiracy Theory” after all? It was always proposed that such a “New World Order” would involve (a) one World Government; (b) one World Religion; and (c) one World Currency – and that a significant World Event would be required to cause the full Implementation and Roll-out thereof.
Most of us are not members of the “Private Club of the World Elite” and we are not invited to their secret Meetings at exotic Resorts. Hence we have no idea as to whether or what they could possibly be “conspiring” about during their discussions – and if indeed the proposal of a structural “New World Order” is real or not? Of this we cannot be sure at this point.
But what we do know is that many a Global Leader in past and present has openly talked about the idea of and the desire for a “New World Order” and furthermore, that there had been some significant developments in recent times that give credence to that very “outlandish Theory”. Such significant developments include, but are not limited to the following:
- A deliberate drive by a particular segment of Society, supported by influential Entities and cash-flush Foundation(s), all of whom collectively advocates for a “borderless” world and the breakdown of Nation States;
- The vigorous promotion of the idea that mass Migration to any country is a Human Right and in fact a necessity;
- A very determined effort by a prominent world Religious Leader to unite and align all other Faiths and Denominations with his Church.
- The recent and ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic of which has almost “overnight” caused for thousands of businesses to go bankrupt; hundreds of millions of people to lose their jobs and livelihoods; entire Economies of Countries to be destroyed; Stock Markets to Crash; the Oil Market to go into the negative and for the World Financial System to be brought to the brink of total collapse.
It does not take a “rocket scientist” to conclude that – in respect of the above and IF the proposal of a “New World Order” is indeed real and not merely being the imagination of some “nut-job Conspiracy Theorist” – that the implementation and roll-out of such has now indeed become achievable and even more so since the breakout of the CORONA-19 Pandemic that has all but paralyzed the entire World.
Therefore, whether deliberate and by design or merely accidentally and by co-incidence: What is undeniable is that, due to the outbreak of the CORONA-19 Pandemic, a very favorable condition now exists in the World and whereby such a “New World Order” could indeed become a reality.
Just pause for a moment and think about it: Almost everyone is distracted and whereas many are afraid of this unknown Disease and keeping themselves hidden in their houses, others are depressed and are pre-occupied with trying to figure out a plan that will enable them to pay the Mortgage, next month’s Rent or simply how to put food on the table.
Also almost all of the individual countries in the World are now effectively “Bankrupt” and it is doubtful whether any country would ever be able to get more Loans and/or to repay its Debt…………….all of which COULD lead to a new Global Financial System and a One World Currency.
Therefore and as for those among us who still think that the implementation of a “New World Order” would be impossible to achieve – then consider that the architect(s) thereof, if indeed they exist, simply have / had to follow the following very logical strategy:
“Create enough suffering, sorrow and despair among Nations and all the peoples of this World so that, when the reality of their unbearable situation and predicament dawns upon them, they will all eagerly put up their hands and obediently stand in line to willingly sign-up to the New World Order.”
Off course neither you nor I can at this point absolutely know whether any of the above assumptions are correct or wholly wrong. We will just have to wait and see.
And yes, it is during this very dangerous time of the COVID-19 Pandemic advisable and absolutely necessary that in respect of Science and all which the Scientific Community has to offer us, to use all of that knowledge to our benefit – and so also to allow for the numerous Virologists, Epidemiologists, Biologists, Doctors and other Medical Experts to do their job and to best advise us on matters of Health.
It is undeniable that something dangerous and extremely contagious is infecting millions of people all over the World and causing for hundreds of thousands to die as a result.
We nevertheless also have to consider the possibility that somethings “other” and “much bigger” than us are at play here – and specifically since a number of Political Leaders are now openly advocating for the principle that one should “never let go to waste those good opportunities that is brought about by an unexpected crisis”.
Wherefore in regards to all of the above and particularly now in this very dangerous and confusing time of COVID-19 that we are living in, one cannot help but to wonder:
“What more will it take for Mankind to turn back to God and to ACKNOWLEDGE Him as our Creator? Would it not be better for us to instead BELIEVE in God, to LISTEN to His Word, to ADHERE to His Commandments and to place our unwavering TRUST in Him?”
It is noteworthy that this very challenging time that we now live in is in fact perfectly aligned with the Prophecy of “Biblical End Times” – with particular reference to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse as described in the Book of Revelations and of which represents a divine apocalypse that is set upon the World involving: Conquest, War (Bloodshed), Famine (Disease) and Pestilence (Death).
“If my people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14 of Bible Scriptures)
