State-Sponsored, Media Hyped Fear-Mongering for Diabolical Aims

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Except for the elderly and infirm with weak immune systems, chances of perishing or being seriously harmed from contracting covid — renamed seasonal flu/influenza since early 2020 — is minuscule.

According to NIAID data, annual US deaths from influenza are a small fraction of 1%.

The risk of death or serious harm from heart disease, cancer, accidents, other respiratory diseases, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, pneumonia, kidney disease, suicide, alcoholism, and violence is much to infinitely higher.

Post-9/11, Americans were fear-mongered to believe they were threatened by terrorist attacks on US soil. 

Never happened. Claims otherwise were Big Lies.

Chance of being struck by lightening is much greater.

Few governments of, by, and for everyone equitably exist.

Most governments oppress and exploit the vast majority to benefit the privileged few.

All Western governments operate this way, notably the US.

Especially since the neoliberal 90s, it’s become increasing totalitarian — enforced by police state laws, draconian harshness increasing, including by transforming the US into a “let ‘em eat cake society.”

The same is true for other Western states, democracies in name only, “liberte, egalite, and fraternite” ruled off-limits.

Governments lie and mass deceive people in pursuit of their diabolical aims — supported by media press agents.

In her book, tiled “The Origins of Totalitarianism,” Hannah Arendt said the following:

Governments are “never content to rule by external means, namely, through the state and a machinery of violence,” adding: 

According to their “peculiar ideology and the role assigned to it in this apparatus of coercion, totalitarianism has discovered a means of dominating and terrorizing human beings from within.”

Fantasy democracies like the US operate this way.

Ruling authorities in Washington serve wealth and power interests exclusively, exploiting most people to benefit privileged ones.

The US is governed by duopoly rule, one party with two extremist right wings.

It’s the world’s leading purveyor of state terrorism and wars of aggression against invented enemies.

The US is a plutocracy, autocracy, technocracy, and corporatocracy run by crime bosses, never a democracy from inception.

Its imperial war machine never rests, operating at home and abroad.

9/11 was pretext to consolidate power, destroy civil liberties and human rights.

Events in 2020 were another more draconian 9/11, continuing in the new year to eliminate remaining freedoms. 

That’s what is going on — seasonal flu/influenza called covid the vehicle.

Dark forces intend to transform America (and other Western states) into ruler/serf societies.

What the Pentagon once called a “long war” is part of how Washington intends to accomplish its diabolical aims.

Year 2020 was prelude for the worst of what lies ahead.

What GHW Bush in 1990, ahead of Soviet Russia’s dissolution, called “a rare opportunity to (establish) a new world order” by initially setting the Middle East ablaze advanced in 2020 and what lies ahead by tyrannical Great Reset policies.

Seasonal flu/influenza called covid — 9/11 2.0 — created an opportunity for economic shutdown, quarantines, social distancing mask-wearing, Main Street Depression, and the unprecedented transfer of wealth from most Americans to privileged ones — the grand scheme made possible by media supported Big Lies and mass deception.

Today’s stakes are far greater than earlier because unprecedented diabolical aims in the works for years are being rolled out in real time.

Begun last year, the worst lies ahead if things go as planned.

America as it once was, warts and all, will look like the good old days if diabolical dark forces get their way.

Time and again I’ve stressed that ordinary people have power when they use it.

Today, the power to resist is the only chance to stop the transformation of what once was in the US and West into draconian ruler-serf societies unfit to live in for most people.

We can accept it, lose all rights, and hope for a better future.

Or we can resist against what no one should tolerate.

The obvious choice needs no further elaboration.

New Hampshire’s motto is: “Live Free or Die.”

Resist or perish. Liberty and justice depend on going all-out to secure and preserve what’s too precious to lose.
