Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Corona Madness and Burning down the Village (to save it)

The economic-social-health destruction from nescient policies is worse than the virus.

Burning down the village to save it.  The consequences of the coming economic destruction should not be under-estimated.  It will vary by country and region.  But take the UK as an example.  Currently about 16.000 are dead from Corona.  Last winter, about 29.000 died of the ‘normal’ flu.  Corona-hysteria-ists contend that this virus will have phases, it will ‘mutate’, it will ‘come back’.  No evidence exists for these assertions.  They are based on a mix of ‘scientific’ hypotheses, bad models and conjecture.  The virus has not changed much and once infected the person is immune (link).  Across most of the world, the Corona-craziness has peaked and the number of cases is falling.  In fact a recent study clearly articulates that lock-downs do not work, and the pattern of the Corona infection and death cycles are the same across all countries, and all variations of responses from keeping the economy open (Taiwan, Sweden); to shuttering all activity (Italy, Spain, UK) (link).

 

If the lockdowns are extended into the summer, there will be unbridled destruction

 

By the early summer, given the extension of the current lockdown, the UK will likely see 12 million unemployed (link).  This is 50% of the private sector employment.  There are 32 million employed in the UK, with about 20 % working in various levels of government (link).  This means that the private sector – which pays the salaries and expenses of government workers and funds the entire social-economic infrastructure of 70 million people – constitutes about 24 million workers.  If 12 million are unemployed in the UK, that is a real unemployment rate of 50%. 

 

In the UK private sector 95% of businesses are less than 50 people and 90 % of those are less than 10 people.  These small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) total 1 million in the UK, and the SMBs employ 65% of the UK workforce or about 18 million people.  Only 40.000 firms are larger than 50 people and about 7.000 are larger than 250 people (link).  SMBs do not have access to capital, loans or large cash reserves. They usually survive month by month and quarter by quarter. 

 

The SMBs will be devastated and out of 18 million workers, one can rationally predict that 10 million will be unemployed soon.  Larger firms who have reserves, capital, access to bank lending, or international parent and sister operating companies, will survive, depending on their sector (travel, hoteliers, hospitality, retail, luxury goods and many other industries are of course at high risk and will shed costs, workers and stop projects).

 

This government inspired disaster is the greatest socio-economic calamity to visit the UK since the Black Death and the English Civil War.  Death rates will increase post Corona, given the stresses and ill-health which accompanies a shattered economy and society, in which 40% are under-or-un-employed.  In the UK (and elswhere), this vast and deep annihilation of employment, social mobility and freedom will leave a disfigured country, with civil unrest and unbridgeable chasms between regions, classes and sectors (link to a New York Post on the coming Great Depression).

 

Corona and the cult of Scientism and fake models

Burning down the village to save yourself....based on fraud....not that clever.

Breaking Fake Media News:

“Due to overwrought hysteria, fraudulent models and government incompetence, over a flu strain which kills 1/2 the daily numbers of the H1N1 flu strain; it has been decided to: Cancel Life. Please self-detonate to save the children's future (and Gaia's), your remains will be disposed of by the Corona-KGB. Remember people; this is bigger than sports, reality TV or life itself. Signed. Das Kommissar.”

 

The Corona hysteria is just another example of fraudulent models and the cult of scientism.  The ‘model’ used by Imperial College of London, which generated 2.2 million Corona-related deaths in the US and 500.000 in the UK, has no connection whatsoever, to reality.  Currently there are 15.000 deaths in the US and 7.000 in the UK.  These numbers are no where near the level of the normal flu season (60.000 in the US, 29.000 in the UK, https://www.dailymail.co.uk...).  Yet hysteria and police-state powers, reign supreme. 

 

This same group at Imperial College was responsible for the irresponsible slaughter of millions of dead cattle, pigs and sheep due to ‘mad cow’ hysteria in 2001, from similar fraudulent models.  This put farms out of business and cost the UK economy at least £10 billion.  These models fail the test of real life.  But of course the Imperial College worthies are ‘scientists’, ‘the experts’, ‘those who know’….the exact opposite of reality.  They know nothing, their models are proven frauds, yet governments take them seriously and shut down the world-economy, a decision which will devastate personal lives and lead to more deaths.  Obey the cult of science.

 

 In the past 6 weeks:

·        Deaths attributed to Corona in the USA, a country of 350 million:  15.000

·        Italy: 18.000

·        Spain:  18.000

·        France:  11.000

·        Worldwide: Maybe 90.000

 

Versus:

·        Deaths from the normal flu Worldwide:  500.000

 

2017 CDC report:

  "According to new estimates published today, between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide die from seasonal influenza-related respiratory illnesses each year, higher than a previous estimate of 250,000 to 500,000 and based on a robust, multinational survey."

 

Yes, yes, yes, the Corona is severe – just as the 2009 Avian flu was severe and killed 9.000 in the US; or the Hong Flu of 1968 which killed 100.000.  Yes, yes, yes, we need to protect the old, the sick, the young, through isolation measures, having a health infrastructure ready to aid those who are ill and suffering (respirators, cures, vitamins, hospital beds).  Yes, yes, yes , everyone should take precautions and be careful.  Yes, yes, yes, we understand the risks.  We understand the platitudes, the slogans, the children’s, children’s future etc.

 

But there is no common sense.  Shutting down life is simply not an option.  Killing yourself, to save yourself, is probably a parable not worth pursuing.  No Corona does not have wings, it does not travel hundreds of feet, it does not magically alight and enter your mouth.  Yes it can be contagious if you get spores on your hands and within a few minutes rub them on your face.  But the chance of catching it is pretty slight, no worse odds than ingesting the normal flu virus.

 

In Italy 1.500 die daily of non-Corona causes.  Corona is killing at the moment, about 700 per day.  This will last a few weeks than subside.  That is, if you believe that all the deaths currently being documented are due to Corona.  This is unlikely and most of the numbers are probably inflated.  Many people might die with Corona, but not because of it.  By contrast about 23.000 Italians die each year (the range is between 15.000 and 25.000 or so per annum), of the ‘normal flu’.  This works out to about 400 a day over the flu season.  So, we can calmly say that at its worse, the Corona-China virus kills about 2 x the normal flu rate.  However, the aggregate number of Corona deaths in Italy will be below that of the normal flu.  Though severe, it does not warrant closing an entire country for any length of time. 

  

Corona is not the end of the world. Diarrheal infection killed 2 million last year and no one seemed to care.

 

Burning down the village to save it, is to be polite, idiotic.  Yes, Huxley and Orwell were prescient handbooks warning about Statism, and the ineluctable rise of the Dystopian Technocracy, which neuters truth, life, freedom.  However, they were not meant to be manuals.

 

World Government via the Useless Nations (UN), and its infected Communist organs such as the WHO, is not the answer.  Dictatorship and totalitarianism is not the cure to a virus pandemic.

 

Hold China to account, find out the truth, develop a vaccine or similar and tell people to use common sense including plenty of vitamin ingestion and re-start the real world of nation states and end the totalitarian regime of economic and social isolation which, if one believes the numbers, is not working anyway.
