Illinois proves gun laws are racist

Under Illinois law, a person seeking to obtain a concealed carry license — and, thus, be “legally” entitled to protect himself in that state — has to first fork over $650, plus take a 16-hour training course that requires time on a range.

Illinois has the most expensive registration fee in the country. Getting a license is an expensive and burdensome proposition. And even then, obtaining “approval” is a tricky proposition, at best. The Cook County Sheriff has said he would object to as many applications as possible so as to send them to a panel that can deny them without explanation. But it’s easier to get a license if you’re white.

The Washington Times has dug into license data. It shows that if you are black and live in a violent and dangerous neighborhood, you are very unlikely to be able to obtain a permit.

Demographic data shows that 90 percent of Illinois’ 73,714 active concealed carry licenses are held by whites who live in middle-class, predominately white neighborhoods with low crime rates. Only 8 percent went to blacks statewide. Of those, fewer than 1 percent went to people living in the poorest ZIP codes.

Illinois residents told The Times that the disproportion boils down to cost. “In these gangbang neighborhoods, people can’t afford the license. They’re making choices between food and medicine, and they can’t even guarantee they’ll get even that,” said Shawn Gowder, 49, who lives in Chicago’s Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side, where two homicides have taken place in the past 30 days. “We need to arm ourselves and protect ourselves from these gangbangers, but we just can’t afford to do it.”

In crime-ridden neighborhoods of Chicago — where the most homicides, robberies, assaults, thefts and drug charges are recorded and where the populations are 98 percent black and the median income is at or below the poverty line — concealed carry license holders almost nonexistent.

But if people living in those neighborhoods are able to overcome the prohibitive cost of the permit, they likely rely on public transportation to get around. That makes the training portion of the process unattainable. It’s against Illinois law to carry an unlicensed gun on public transportation.

So Illinois, home to Chicago — which carries the dubious title of the nation’s “Murder Capital” after tallying the most homicides in the U.S. in 2012 — has set up barriers that deny poor black people an option of legally defending themselves. Were there laws similarly denying low-income blacks the option of performing any other legal act in this manner, there would be a huge outcry from the political elites. But because the elites want low-income blacks to remain dependent slaves, they don’t say a word about this discrepancy.

It’s likely that you don’t know that the first U.S. gun laws sprang up in the South following the Civil War in an attempt to bar blacks from possessing guns. Today’s gun control laws do much the same thing.

Superman taken down by bedsores

In the end, Superman was brought down by bedsores.

Christopher Reeve, the actor who played the superhero in four movies, died in 2004 of complications from infected bedsores that led to blood poisoning and heart failure, more than nine years after a horseback-riding accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He also had an allergic shock reaction to the drug used to treat the systemic infection from the sores, which may have sent him into cardiac arrest. Reeve’s death underscored the danger of bedsores (more properly called pressure sores), one of the most common and most dangerous complications facing people with limited mobility.

Nursing homes and healthcare workers have long recognized the importance of preventing pressure sores, and now family caregivers everywhere are taking up the cause. If you’re caring for a relative who spends much of the day in bed or in a wheelchair, you too will have to join the fight.

The word “sore” hardly captures the seriousness of the problem. “It’s a huge quality-of-life issue,” said Catherine D’Amico, Ph.D., an assistant professor at the Hunter Bellevue School of Nursing in New York City. Pressure sores can turn an already unpleasant situation into pure agony, she said, and can permanently damage skin and bone. As Reeve’s case of illustrates, they can also be fatal.

According to a report from Harvard Medical School, several thousand Americans die each year from complications associated with pressure sores. It may take diligent care to prevent pressure sores, D’Amico said, because a seriously ill person can develop bedsores very quickly. In other cases, avoiding the sores is a relatively simple task. But in all situations, a well-informed, dedicated caregiver will be the best defense.

Has PL’s comment moderation changed?

An Open Letter to Mr. Bob Livingston;

I would like to fully understand why you have been strongly regulating posts for the past 2 months and changed the format so it’s all but impossible to contact Personal Liberty any longer. I understand that at times I get extremely vitriol. That happens when I have a liberal and/or progressive attack me, persons, or what I stand for. That I fully understand. But when you start suppressing peoples Freedom of Speech and/or Thoughts in the name of a ‘Benjamin’ you begin to tread a rice paper thin sacred ground. I believe it’s because of the federal gov’t & your sponsors regulating your website now. And yes Mr. Bob you do have sponsors & do make an income off of this website. You do not do this from the goodness of the bottom of your heart. I’ve watched other sites become as Personal Liberty is, “Catering to the PC Police & Liberal Progressives” who can make or break a business anywhere in the world at this current time. I guess I’ll have to resort to, The Drudge Report once again.

Doug James, Abilene, KS

Dear Doug,

Our comment policy is clearly stated above the comments and has not changed, nor has its enforcement. We always try to be as lenient as possible, but sometimes conversations degenerate to the point that we have to step in. Only the most egregious offender is ever “blacklisted” without first receiving a warning or three. The commenter’s response to that warning goes a long way toward the tolerance level afforded future policy violations. I have not been “suppressing peoples (sic) Freedom of Speech and/or Thoughts in the name of a ‘Benjamin’” or for any other reason. First, I cannot do so. Only government is capable of suppressing Freedom of Speech and I am likewise incapable of getting inside your head and suppressing your thoughts. Second, whether you or anyone else comments here has no effect on our bottom line.

Your comment about “Catering to the PC Police & Liberal Progressives” is specious. As can be plainly seen in my commentaries, I am not now nor have I ever been concerned with being “PC” or catering to the wishes of the conventional wisdom crowd. As far as being difficult to contact, there is a “Contact Us” link at the bottom of every page that provides an email address, mailing address, three telephone numbers and office hours. I have also provided from time to time an email address that comes straight to me. It is freedomwatch@personalliberty.com.

Best wishes,

Bob

Propaganda is force!

Propaganda can be words and phrases that collectivize and mold the public mind so that subtle or overt force is made easier or becomes unnecessary.

Carefully chosen words by the establishment are the basis of mass mind control leading to acceptance of force. Until the people accept collectivism under some pretext, they are not docile and completely subdued.

But, Bob, you say, you have written this before. Well, a whole volume could easily be written demonstrating the twisting and distortion of words and phrases along with outright lies to manipulate the public mind. Really, few people escape this psychological warfare.

Words are created and repeated, which expands the collective psyche to accept and repeat some more. People who freely use those terms are not in control of their own thinking process.

Following are some examples of establishment words and phrases used as propaganda:

See your doctor

It is oh, so evident that this phrase channels the crowd toward pharmaceutical control. The doctor is only the medium. Few doctors suspect that “medical orthodoxy” is a rigidly controlled system in the medical schools and practiced by the pharmaceutical companies.

We have long held that so-called modern allopathic medicine is a very esoteric witchcraft — a deceptive practice that has little or nothing to do with curing or healing, but it does have to do with a multitrillion-dollar industry. But don’t just take my word for it.

Read the words of Marcia Angell, M.D., former editor of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, from her book “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.”

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.

This fraud is becoming increasingly visible in the wake of the revelations by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention whistleblower William Thompson and the establishment’s reaction to the revelations.

In case you missed it, and it’s likely you did because there is a full-on mainstream media blackout on it and circling of wagons by the establishment, Thompson has revealed that he and other CDC researchers have been falsifying data for years in order to cover up a link between vaccines and autism.

In a recorded call between Thompson and Brian Hooker, Ph.D., Thompson is heard to say:

The CDC has put the [autism] research ten years behind. Because the CDC has not been transparent, we’ve missed ten years of research [on the autism-vaccine connection]… CDC is…they’re paralyzed. The whole system is paralyzed right now… I have a boss who’s asking me to lie…if I’m forced to testify, I’m not gonna lie. I basically have stopped lying… Really, what we need is for Congress to come in and say, “Give us the data and we’re gonna have an independent contractor do it,” and bring in the autism advocates [who understand the vaccine-autism connection] and have them intimately involved in the studies.

The attempt to stem the damage has reached the absurd. State Farm insurance recently fired comedian Rob Schneider over his anti-vaccination stance. This is common practice by the establishment to shut down any dissenting views.

But even if they worked and were without risk, vaccines only stimulate temporary immunity. By trading lifelong immunity for temporary vaccine-induced immunity, people become vaccine dependent.

The winners of repeated mandatory vaccinations are the pharmaceutical companies. The losers are the people, who are first put at risk as children for vaccine adverse events and then put at risk as adults for repeated vaccinations that have already failed.

The pharmaceuticals, aided and abetted by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, have discovered a money machine in mass vaccinations. But they need and have to have your body for the pretense.

Healthcare is a right

This is a phrase that seeks to establish that modern medicine is beneficial to the health of the people. It disarms any negative connotation. It greatly helps cover the medical fraud.

There are more than 600,000 injuries and 100,000 deaths annually in the U.S. from adverse drug reactions (ADR) in hospitals. These are caused by FDA-approved drugs. ADR is the third-leading cause of death in the U.S.

Life expectancy

This phrase programs the public psyche to expire when we retire. Since people are not cooperating and are now living longer, this concept must be reinforced from time to time, as Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel, M.D., recently did in The Atlantic.

“By the time I reach 75, I will have lived a complete life,” Emanuel writes in the magazine. “I will have loved and been loved. My children will be grown and in the midst of their own rich lives. I will have seen my grandchildren born and beginning their lives. I will have pursued my life’s projects and made whatever contributions, important or not, I am going to make. And hopefully, I will not have too many mental and physical limitations… [It is] a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining.”

Establishment propagandist CBS News medical contributor David Argus, M.D., pontificated before a national audience with, “Ezekiel Emanuel did a remarkable thing: He created discourse. He made everybody start to talk about this.”

Taxpayer

This word is among the greatest deceptions in the English language. The system wants everyone to believe himself a taxpayer or as one who pays his or her “fair share.” Since the government (and banksters) create money (credit), why would they need you to pay taxes?

The answer is they don’t, but they do need a regulatory system and a dossier on everyone to profile your manner of living and, yes, even your thoughts. It’s a thought system and a system of people regulation.

Tax dollars

There is no such thing; see “taxpayer” above. Our so-called “tax dollars” don’t exist as money going to pay government expenses. When we “pay tax dollars,” we are not funding the government or anything else. We are reducing our consumption as part of social planning.

Your fair share

This is a collectivist concept that eventually evokes a guilty conscious. Few have any concept of what this means, but it unconsciously produces a herding instinct.

Democracy

This is a big one and it has sucked in everyone. Democracy is a system of manipulated mob rule by the elite. It is the very opposite of human liberty. Democracy does not mean freedom and freedom does not mean democracy.

Democracy is a front for despotism under the rule of an oligarchy.

Hitler called his Nazi Germany. America is a fascist system with benevolent totalitarianism.

Democrat and Republican

These words show how perfectly the same thing can have two names. Aren’t you glad that you go to the polls and vote? The politicians are laughing at us.

The government spends money

The word “spend” suggests that money is finite or limited. This makes so-called “budgets” myths to occupy the public mind and to create the aura of the legitimacy of governments. The federal government does not “pay” or “spend” money. It creates credit and exchange it for goods and services.

Yes, they get everything for nothing. This is how the politicians “finance” their perpetual wars. Few people would pay real money out of their pockets to kill “terrorists” killing each other in the Middle East. The public reaction against this would be visible and dramatic, if people truly understood how perpetual wars benefit the ruling class.

Assad is the target; ISIS is the excuse

The ultimate target of the new American bombing campaign is the regime of Bashar Assad. Attacking ISIS and the newly minted enemy du jour, the Korashans, is just an excuse.

The Wall Street Journal laid bare the backstage machinations required to get the Saudi Arabian kingdom — one of the principal backers of ISIS — on board.

Folks, the U.S. is not fighting a “war on terror.” It is fighting a war to ensure Saudi Arabia’s dominance in the region and to open the way for a natural gas pipeline from the South Pars/North Dome Gas-Condensate field in Qatar to Turkey and then Eastern Europe. The American people have been lied to once again. And once again, the American people have fallen for it hook, line and sinker.

The New York Times reported Sept. 18 that the U.S. is paying “salaries to thousands of ‘vetted’ rebels and has given them ammunition to boost their battlefield mettle.” These rebels, according to The Times, hate ISIS, but their priority remains ousting Assad.

As for the Saudi involvement, “Syria had become a critical frontline in the battle for regional influence with Iran, an Assad ally. As Mr. Assad stepped up his domestic crackdown [on the opposition forces], the king decided to do whatever was needed to bring the Syrian leader down, Arab diplomats say,” according to The WSJ.

“In the last week of August, a U.S. military and State Department delegation flew to Riyadh to lay the ground for a military program to train the moderate Syrian opposition to fight both the Assad regime and Islamic State — something the Saudis have long requested. The U.S. team wanted permission to use Saudi facilities for the training. Top Saudi ministers, after consulting overnight with the king, agreed and offered to foot much of the bill,” The WSJ reports.

In other words, the Saudis wanted the U.S. to train and equip the forces fighting Assad. The U.S. wanted Saudi Arabia to join a coalition against ISIS to give its attacks on ISIS “international legitimacy,” and the U.S. military needed a base in Saudi Arabia to train opposition fighters. The Saudis agreed to supply the base and some fighter jets in exchange for a promise to equip the anti-Assad rebels.

In addition to stripping Iran of a key ally, taking out Assad will open a way for the coveted gas pipeline across Syria — a pipeline Assad opposed. That pipeline will ultimately supply gas to Eastern Europe, which currently gets most of its natural gas from Russia. That pipeline will cut off Vladimir Putin’s trump card in his conflict with the West.

So the U.S. trumped up an ISIS threat, pulled the Korashans out of their old playbook, polished them up to make them appear new, put a shiny cover on an old plan to use clothing as a terror weapon (remember the underwear bomber), and used them as the excuse to begin the campaign to bring down Assad.

This battle has nothing to do with fighting terrorism, and ISIS poses no threat to the U.S. This is a battle ensure Saudi Arabia’s regional dominance — a Saudi Arabia that purports to be an ally of America but which played a key role in the 9/11 attacks and has been funding the very terrorists the regime is using to terrorize Americans into supporting this new war. This battle is to provide Qatar with a means to natural gas profits and to cut the legs from under Putin and destroy one of his last remaining allies in the region.

Putin’s not likely to take such a threat lying down, so the “peace president” is risking World War III on behalf of Saudi Arabia and globalists with interests in the Qatar gas line.

But regardless, once again, the globalists will win and the American people will lose blood and treasure and be further impoverished by a war paid for with more money printing.

The fiery and destructive passions of war

In Federalist No. 34, Alexander Hamilton wrote, “To judge from the history of mankind, we shall be compelled to conclude that the fiery and destructive passions of war reign in the human breast with much more powerful sway than the mild and beneficent sentiments of peace…”

These “destructive passions” have come to the fore quickly in the wake of the unrelenting propaganda war the regime has foisted upon the people over the past several months.

It was just over a year ago, in early September, when President Barack Obama deferred to Congress on a possible military strike on Syria. The war-weary American people rose up almost as one to oppose another military adventure and turned the Congressional phone lines white hot. Congress got the message, and a war to take out the Syrian government was averted.

Turns out it was just delayed. U.S. hegemony would not be denied.

The military-industrial complex, the CIA and U.S. “allies” Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar created, funded and armed ISIS; and ISIS marched across the desert into Iraq, reportedly raping and beheading and crucifying along the way. But then, ISIS crossed the line. They produced videos that purported to show “journalists” being beheaded.

This ignited the “fiery and destructive passions of war” among the American people, who now support a war on ISIS or ISIL or the Islamic State, or whatever they call themselves today.

Now commenters here and on Facebook are calling for bombs, bombs and more bombs. “What we need is an FASHION CRUSADE LIKE in yon days of YORE and drive them back to before the STONE AGE,” posited Facebook commenter Earl Scott. And that sentiment is shared by many, if not most.

Almost no one is questioning whether this regime, which has lied through its teeth so many times, is lying about the ISIS threat. Almost no one is questioning whether the U.S. military machine and its enabling neocons, which lied through their teeth about the need for the first Iraq war, are lying today about the ISIS threat.

The “fiery and destructive passions of war” have been lit and must be assuaged.

“My policy has been, and will continue to be, while I have the honor to remain in the administration of the government, to be upon friendly terms with, but independent of, all the nations of the earth,” wrote George Washington to Gouverneur Morris. “To share in the broils of none. To fulfil our own engagements. To supply the wants, and be carriers for them all: Being thoroughly convinced that it is our policy and interest to do so.”

Washington’s policy should be America’s policy.

Another illegal war

The so-called “Peace President” — aided and abetted by a feckless Congress — has begun yet another illegal war.

By bombing targets inside Syria without the permission of the Syrian government, Barack Hussein Obama violated international law — and the U.S. Constitution — and should be brought up on war crimes. He has now, finally, gotten the war with Syria that he so desperately sought last year before the American people rose up in opposition.

This time, thanks to two propaganda videos that purported to show the beheadings of American “journalists,” the American people have gotten behind the Syrian war. If you think Bashar Assad is not the ultimate target of the regime, acting on behalf of the globalists, you haven’t been paying attention.

Islamic State — or ISIS or ISIL, whatever their current nom de guerre — was created by the U.S. and funded by the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates precisely to bring to down Assad.

This lawless regime’s first illegal war was in Libya, in which the U.S. used the cover of NATO to violate international law and create regime change in a sovereign nation which posed no threat to the U.S. It has drone-bombed a number of other nations– killing innocents, including women and children in the process — that did not threaten the U.S., another violation of international law.

Wars are used by the globalists to cover a failing system. People in the know are aware that it’s time for the big New York market to crash and usher in the second Great Depression.

As the big New York stock market crashes, this will signal the beginning of the second great economic depression. Yes, we have had depression since 2008, but the big one is just ahead. Everything is ready!

Get your ducks in a row while the crowd is still asleep.

The public believes that the government will keep pumping the stock market. Not so! The stock market will crash when it’s ready — and that will be soon.

The war that the politicians and talking heads have been long clamoring for has begun. So we are now just ahead of the big stock market crash and all-out war.

Behind the scenes there is mass devaluation of the U.S. dollar. Few people see the trickery.

Market riggers have kicked the legs from under silver and gold, giving the big banks time to accumulate and corner as much of the precious metals as possible.

High blood pressure a silent danger

You eat healthy. You take vitamins, minerals and nutrients on a daily basis. You exercise regularly. Then you go for your checkup and find out you have high blood pressure. Are you surprised?

High blood pressure has virtually no symptoms until it gets critically high and into the stroke and heart attack ranges. The normal measurement is 120/80.

You may not realize you have high blood pressure until it is too late. That is exactly why elevated blood pressure is known as a silent danger. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in America:

  • About 1 in 3 American adults have prehypertension, or blood pressure levels that are higher than normal.
  • About 67 million Americans have high blood pressure.
  • Only about half of people with high blood pressure actually have it under control.
  • High blood pressure and its complications results in more than 348,000 deaths each year.

Blood pressure relates to and can be affected by many variables like family history, personality type and daily exercise levels.

It has biochemical individuality, so we allow for these variables.

All conventional medicine condemns salt as a provocateur of high blood pressure, but I have never seen one define salt. What they mean and don’t say is that the bad guy is sodium chloride. Sodium chloride (table salt) is a synthetic with all the minerals extracted. Sure, it’s bad, especially on high blood pressure.

Sea salt is different altogether; it has16 natural minerals with many therapeutic benefits.

There are many vitamins and herbs that can help you naturally and safely lower your blood pressure and also help you maintain normal blood pressure. Some of these include vitamins C, B6 and B12; folic acid; potassium; niacin; garlic; olive leaf extract; hawthorn berry; green tea extract with hibiscus flower; flax oil or fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids); cocoa extract; and magnesium and vitamin D3. There is a lot of good research on these nutrients.

High blood pressure greatly increases your chances of heart attack and stroke, so take this seriously. If you don’t regularly monitor your blood pressure at home, start now. I check my blood pressure every day at home. My Panasonic blood pressure monitor cost me $40 on Amazon. It is also available at your local pharmacy.

A good diet alone can’t provide all the needed nutrition for healthy blood pressure.

Get a good nutritional supplement, or supplements, containing herbs and vitamins designed to keep your blood pressure in check, as mentioned above.

Lawyers and minorities love socialism

When American politicians talk about “rights” and “liberty,” they certainly are not talking about our personal and individual liberty. For them, “rights” and “liberty” are code words for groupism (the crowd). Politicians and bureaucrats never remotely consider personal or individual liberty.

Government under any name or label is all about making and passing laws that strengthen and grow government. Where there are many laws, there is no individual freedom. Where there is no individual freedom, there is no freedom at all.

Politicians and bureaucrats have so skillfully imposed the word “democracy” into the lexicon that the crowd confuses groupism with individual liberty. Democracy by all definitions is mob rule, or groupism. It is anathema to individual liberty.

Democracy does not equal human liberty. Democracy precisely means the manipulated mob. Mobs are rarely if ever spontaneous. They are usually manipulated events like the Arab Spring events of a couple of years ago or the Ukraine uprising this year.

As always, the spokesmen for the “movements” talk about creating or reinstalling democracy and liberty as their motivation. Politicians have to do this in order to confirm and reaffirm their political identity to the eyes and ears of the system bosses.

Lawyers love socialism except for themselves. Why? It’s because they created it and they parasite off it.

Have you noticed that the Bar Association in every country always supports government? Lawyers write the laws that channel all power, authority and wealth to the government. They create confusion so the people can’t understand the law and can’t understand esoteric (hidden) political and “legal” manipulation of the public.

So lawyers create socialism and label it democracy. Socialism is a disguised system of stealing the wealth and production of the producers of wealth with spurious laws. Stealing or taking from producers and transferring it to nonproducers make for very sophisticated and concealed class warfare. In other words, it is a parasite system with the parasites ruling and fleecing their host through deception.

It is obvious that government parasites have to have “friends” and allies. They are not at all confused about who their natural allies are. Politicians and bureaucrats achieve balance of power (deceptive rule by consent) by subtly playing economic class, cultural and racial minorities against the producers.

Producers are softened and neutered into passiveness by a constant campaign of altruistic propaganda. It works! Producers and creators actually become persuaded that they should support the system of unequal equality. Now the politicians have a double lock on the public mind. It is their ultimate goal that guarantees their safety and security and preparation for the New World Order — already in existence. The more complete the deception, the more complete the power.

There is yet another element that guarantees the survival and credibility of “democracy.” It is the covert and implied sanction of organized religion — not Christianity, but a very well concealed oriental mysticism that pervades organized religion. It is an esoteric force for world unity.

Who are minorities? They are, of course, the racial minorities. But there are a whole lot more than that. There are homosexual minorities, feminine minorities, so-called “civil rights” minorities, cultural minorities and all the minorities that make up the “diversity” of the nation.

Public policy is molded on these manipulated minority influences, all contributing to the power and collectivism of government. This is all an invisible charade, an organism, with a totally different and opposite orientation to individual liberty. It is in reality New Age slavery, a benevolent totalitarianism, an illusion of freedom.

One can always identify minority special interests simply because they welcome government intervention and intrusion (socialism) as a net for perceived social inequality, poverty and underachievement. Guilt manipulation and all manner of charades are used to force social and economic equality where none is earned.

Organized religion does not recognize human diversity and natural inequality. All are deserving of the blessings of God and the equal benefits of the community. Nothing is ever mentioned about earning social and economic benefits through personal achievement.

Manipulating minorities who are naturally drawn to socialism is a basic political strategy to justify government politics and plunder.

The principle of government is that political power is maximized by forcibly leveling every individual to the same status of conformity, collectivism, ecumenicalism and serfdom. The truth goes deeper. Because of perceived social, cultural, racial and psychic inferiority, minorities desire to parasite on government force and socialism to subvert those they envy and wish to imitate.

It would never succeed except for the very sophisticated propaganda of altruism. Altruism has a double meaning. To the unsuspecting public, it appears good. But it is hypocrisy with a hidden agenda to cover evil. It is the philosophical basis of democracy and benevolent totalitarianism.

Altruism cleverly hides the depravity of human nature. It makes evil appear good and good appear evil. See no evil, hear no evil, do no evil permeates the propaganda. It conceals the political agenda, promotes ignorance of public health, creates a state of mind of dependence on government and the medical establishment and quashes every form of individualism, independence and creative thinking.

The people must be controlled without being aware. Non-awareness is the key.
