It seems to me, you have to ask yourself, what the heck are the global elite thinking? Their actions, especially of late, seem to defy any connection to common sense. When a nation is embroiled in a plague with the mortality rate of Ebola, (up to 90% of victims dying horribly), anyone with sufficient brains to keep their heart beating would know not to keep a steady parade of flights to and from that country. Yet the global elite refuse to stop air traffic between Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the rest of the world. In fact they claim stopping air traffic would make the outbreak worse. With the number of infected people doubling every month or less, it would seem, keeping the friendly skies open has little effect on stopping the spread at least in the countries that are suffering, it only puts the rest of the world at risk. Not that I am a doctor of have any more medical knowledge than the average guy but there are questions that I would think should be answered, because… If you end up having to watch your children die of this horrible disease you can thank your representatives in government for enabling it.
I recently read in Science News that an experiment was done to find out if Ebola can spread by air. They took a cage of pigs that were infected and put it next to another cage with uninfected monkeys. The two cages were sufficiently far apart there could be no physical interaction between the two. After some time the monkeys came down with Ebola. The conclusion was that Ebola cannot travel by air… which is absurd on the face of it, since the virus clearly traveled by air between the two cages. The scientists however said that pigs have a tendency to aerisolize the virus and so making it possible to transmit via the air, but they concluded, it cannot be spread by air between monkeys. Which again is absurd because that is not what they tested for. I haven’t read any other tests between monkeys in separate cages. (Probably because they don’t want to find out).
Something that makes the Ebola outbreak so scary is that so many healthcare workers are coming down with it. You know, those guys wearing space suits, somehow they are getting it. If the virus is so hard to get then why do people dressed in hazmat suits get it? How could that be possible? Presumably they are not wading in diarrhea or drinking vomit. There have been no studies that I have read about explaining why health care workers get it at such high rates. Perhaps there are studies underway, I would hope so, that seek to explain this enigma of Ebola, but if so they haven’t been printed in any article that I have seen.
Another very concerning risk is that even in the very unlikely event someone has survived Ebola they can still be contagious for almost two months! That means anyone who has made it through the disease could go to London, Paris, Moscow, New York or any other city on the planet and spread it there unwittingly, or intentionally, perhaps in brothels. With a ten to twenty day incubation period, many people could become infected before anyone knew it… Starting a whole new outbreak on another continent.
The elite are peddling the fiction that isolating the outbreak would make it spread faster. They make no logical arguments, except calls to sympathy and charity to back their claims up. Some claim people would flee if air traffic is stopped, while other’s claim the economies of the stricken countries would collapse, but what would happen to the global economy if it goes planet wide? I agree that the world has a duty to send healthcare workers to stricken areas to try to staunch the outbreak. Moreover, doing so protects the planet’s population from future outbreaks, from the knowledge gleaned from this one. We should also send plenty of equipment and supplies to back up those brave doctors and nurses. To do anything less is to be less than human hearted. But human heartedness is not a suicide pact.
Now I’ll stoke some tin foil hat conspiracy theories… The Georgia Guidestones are often called the American Stonehenge. They were placed on a hill in Elbert county Georgia. They call for the lowering of the human population to under five hundred million. That represents a drop of almost eighty percent! They claim they represent a “new age of reason.” Added to that the date 2014 has been very recently added to the Guidestones. Perhaps it is crazy, but given the profound evil of some people, the Nazis, Marxists, Twelvers and many in the new class progressive movement, is it at all pragmatic to ignore them? Especially with the Ebola pandemic now on at least three continents enabled by unrestricted air travel?
The simple fact remains however, that we are dealing with a deadly virus that has no sympathy, is not sentient, cannot be offended and passes between people and animals in ways our doctors and scientists have not yet fully determined. It has now spread to Europe and North America by unrestricted air travel and if it gets to South America the virus will find fertile ground to spread. If that does happen, there will be a tsunami of illegal aliens infected with Ebola fleeing to the United States, one that would make the present wave look like a kid splashing in a kiddy pool. Should that happen there would be no way to stop the epidemic from killing hundreds of millions of people in the most awful way possible.
Remember, the Nazis slaughtered over six million Jews, two million Gypsies and untold Russians and other Slavs. Marxism has been a force for the extermination of human beings the world over, with over one hundred million people killed, some tortured unmercifully. When asked what he would do if he overthrew the US Constitution, Bill Ayers said he would install a Marxist government. When the FBI informant pressed Ayers further, as to how he would handle those that disagreed with Marxism, Bill Ayers, Obama’s close friend who it is rumored wrote Obama’s first biography, said, “about twenty five million…”
There may be no tin foil hat reason the global elite refuse to stop air travel between the afflicted nations and the rest of the world, the Georgia Guidestones may be just some crazy Marxist dream of utopia, it may even be possible that restricting air travel between the afflicted nations and the rest of the world would spread the pandemic faster, but any rational person must reason for him or herself. Common sense would lead us to recognize the danger of spreading this deadly plague around the world via air travel. Couple that with the history of the socialist elite to slaughter people and any sane person should be very worried.
