It’s tough being a “conspiracy theorist” these days…
…because there are facts you just don’t see coming. Are we inching back towards a free and independent press because the lies are just becoming so obvious?
I may need to find another hobby. Maybe I’ll take up cartooning like Scott Adams and his Dilbert cartoon which lampooned stupid decision making in corporate America. My cartoon strip would cover stupid decisions in science.
First, there’s a virus outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan and the government says, “Hey, it seems like it came from a live animal market in the city.” My bullshit meter immediately started blaring at the highest decibel level possible and I waited for additional facts.
Second, I read there’s a level 4 bio-safety lab located a couple hundred yards from this market and by “coincidence” I find out they were studying corona viruses, and with the same type of bats that are reservoirs of this virus. And also, the native populations of that bat are found more than five hundred miles away from Wuhan.
Third, the press goes crazy with asking whether this was a planned “bio-weapons” release and I’m thinking, well, maybe, but you don’t have to go that far. It could have just as easily have been an accidental release. I understand there’s a strong argument that this was planned to quell Hong Kong dissent and do some other things that might play into the hands of Big Pharma.
While I don’t have enough evidence…
…to have a strong opinion on the question of accidental or planned release, I have a bias towards stupidity rather than evil. That’s why I think I need to come up with a different designation rather than a “conspiracy theorist.” Maybe I’ll take some help from Scott Adams and simply call myself a Dilbertarian.
My bullshit detector said why do we have to have only two possibilities? Totally natural outbreak or bio-warfare attack? As Scott Adams often says, if you have only see a limited number of possibilities and NOTHING ELSE, that’s an example of LOSER-THINK.
I like to make my ideas simple.
Here it is: We should not be mixing human and animal tissue to come up with any medical product because you will ALWAYS be carrying back a lot of animal viruses in that vaccine or product and giving it a virgin field in which to reproduce, bypassing the human body’s natural barrier of the stomach and skin and going directly into the bloodstream.
I believe in REALLY BAD IDEAS, but reserve an opinion on how many REALLY BAD PEOPLE there are in the population.
If I want to have an opinion which mirrors the diversity of human experience I need to leave myself open to explanations I haven’t considered. People do strange things and I learned that from my years as an attorney.
Which is why I mistakenly put an American frame on the Chinese story. I imagined scientists working in labs comparable to what we might find in America.
But that may not be true…
…according to a story in the New York Post from February 22, 2020, questioning the official story and adding a new wrinkle to the story. If you want to find the story, it’s entitled, “Don’t Buy China’s Story: The Coronavirus May Have Leaked From a Lab.”
Add to this China’s history of similar incidents. Even the deadly SARS virus has escaped — twice — from the Beijing lab where it was — and probably is — being used in experiments. Both “man-made” epidemics were quickly contained, but neither would have happened at all if proper safety precautions had been taken.
And then there is this little-known fact: Some Chinese researchers are in the habit of selling their laboratory animals to street vendors after they have finished experimenting on them.
You heard me right.
Instead of properly disposing of infected animals by cremation, as the law requires, they sell them on the side to make a little extra cash. Or, in some cases, a lot of extra cash. One Beijing researcher, now in jail, made a million dollars selling his monkeys and rats on the live animal market, where they eventually wound up in someone’s stomach.
I never saw that one coming and it’s because I put an American frame on the story.
I could NEVER imagine a scientist anywhere in the world would walk out of a lab with an animal under his arm to sell at a farmer’s market.
I really can’t nail this one down to stupidity or evil intentions, but does it matter? Both scenarios fit the same set of facts and have the same outcome, massive damage to the human population.
Scott Adams eventually became so well-known for his critiques of stupid decision making in corporate America that Elon Musk is reported to have told his executives, “Don’t make the kind of decisions that would end up in a Dilbert cartoon.”
It’s my hope that the books I write will eventually make people say, “What were we ever doing working with animal tissue and injecting them into human beings?” One day humanity might get a bat virus, another day a monkey virus, or maybe a mouse virus, and real people will be hurt.
Why are we actively contaminating ourselves with these products and calling it health care?
