My pro-liberty, anti-tyranny resistance to coronavirus hysteria has been generating a lot of feedback from the “I’ll surrender a little liberty for safety” crowd recently.
From accusations calling me an accessory to homicide to labeling me an alt-right conspiracy nut, there’s been no limit to the names I’ve been called and the attacks I’ve received for doing something as radical as defending liberty and rejecting tyranny.
In Friday’s guest contributor column by Chuck Baldwin entitled Now we know how Germany let it happen, he not only wrote about how coronavirus hysteria could be a sign that we are living in the last days of freedom, he also asked the hypothetical question “What’s next?” and suggested the answer could be global in nature.
So obviously, on top of “alt-right conspiracy nut,” dissenters of my position concerning liberty’s demise have added “tinfoil-hat-wearing whack job” to their list. However, I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for these contrarians.
President George H.W. Bush’s “New World Order” may no longer be the stuff of conspiracy theories. In fact, people in very high places are suggesting that it’s an absolute necessity to defeat COVID-19.
Henry Kissinger, the former national security advisor and secretary of state for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, is warning that the United States will have to join a global program to repair the damage wrought by the coronavirus pandemic and says, “Failure to do so could set the world on fire.” He is demanding “a global collaborative vision and program” along with an adherence to the “principles of the liberal world order.”
“Sustaining the public trust is crucial to social solidarity, to the relation of societies with each other, and to international peace and stability.
“Leaders are dealing with the crisis on a largely national basis, but the virus’s society-dissolving effects do not recognize borders. While the assault on human health will — hopefully — be temporary, the political and economic upheaval it has unleashed could last for generations.
“No country, not even the U.S., can in a purely national effort overcome the virus. Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program. If we cannot do both in tandem, we will face the worst of each.”
In his vision for a New World Order, Bush believed it had a chance of success if managed by a “credible United Nations” that used its “peacekeeping role” to fulfill the vision of the organization’s founders. Does that have an application when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic?
Recently, UN Secretary-General António Guterres announced the creation of a fund for addressing the pandemic, and he’s requesting that every nation of the world give 10 percent — the Bible calls that a “tithe” — of all global income to finance a massive “human-centered, innovative and coordinated stimulus package.”
Guterres is also requesting funds to build an “interconnected Global Health Emergency System for data, workforce, and supplies.”
A system for such a tracking program might be right around the corner in the form of a “mark” applied to the hand as an invisible tattoo. Thanks to funding provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation along with a direct request from Bill Gates himself, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed a system to track the vaccination records of children by embedding the information directly to their skin.
Using dye invisible to the naked eye but visible using a special cell phone filter, children would receive the tattoo simultaneously with their vaccination in one shot. Eventually, researchers would like to use this system to inject sensors into the body to track health issues.
I wonder if there’s anything else that can be implanted in or under the skin. You know, just to make it easier to keep track of things . . . or people.
To the usual suspects ready to throw another round of denials and “conspiracy” accusations in my direction, my hat size is 7½ . . . in case you were thinking of giving me a tinfoil hat as a gift.
