The world is in a state of emergency, held in suspense by an ominous virus. The horror scenario Hollywood has so often portrayed on film has become a reality. Restricted human, basic and civil rights in dozens of countries around the world. Panicky hamster purchases, shortage of gold, stock market crashes, short-time work, shortage of goods, emergency medical care. A completely new quality of time of historic proportions slowly but impressively determines our lives.
Drastic events require drastic measures, after all, our lives are threatened. This is the official narrative of the government, authorities, agencies and health organisations. Everyone has to make sacrifices, only in this way can the danger be averted.
And, no wonder, people change their behaviour. They fear not only for their health, but also for their existence. You keep a physical distance, at least two metres, or preferably stay isolated at home. Not only that. People are beginning to be divided into "obedient" and "virus deniers". The Roman dogma <<Divide et impera>> takes on a literal meaning against this background. Where people let themselves be separated, they cannot exchange or organize themselves. Intention?
From a psychological point of view, isolation and fear cause regression, i.e. a "relapse" from complex patterns of thinking and acting to routinized and automated ones. As a result, certain defensive perceptions (e.g. events filled with fear) are processed in a focused and intensified way; the larger context of meaning is lost. Not only is one more susceptible to external control in this state, one also acts irrationally, as is impressively demonstrated by the worldwide run on toilet paper.
In this extremely explosive situation, one must use common sense and look at things in a fact-based, reasonable context.
What do we really know?
To answer this question, we benevolently assume that this or any other virus exists at all (an assumption that is quite justified when critically analysing the history and methodology of virology).
1. we find that the corona virus has been around for a long time. Its symptoms are described in medical textbooks with those of a very common cold.
2 It is also certain that, in contrast to the usual influenza testing, this virus has been tested for some time now in a very targeted manner. It is not surprising that the incidence rates are increasing significantly (we deliberately disregard the ubiquitous problem of the specificity of virus tests here).
3 If one relates the mortality rate of the corona virus to that of an ordinary influenza, it is many times lower. If we even compare the annual influenza mortality rate with that of the three most common causes of death in the USA (heart disease, cancer, medical treatment errors [!]), the virus loses almost all of its importance.
4 The urgent and drastic need for action in the "fight against the virus" is surprisingly open to interpretation and bears no logical relation to other, potentially far more threatening epidemiological dangers. From a medical point of view, for example, the uncontrolled entry of hundreds of thousands of people from countries with a high co-morbidity rate (e.g. Africa) poses a far greater threat to populations than a virus that has allegedly travelled around the world.
In contrast, the following is surprising:
1) Many articles written by investigative journalists who, for example, expose alleged victims as actors in a crisis, document the staging of patient transports or uncover evidence of a virus plot at the highest level fall victim to censorship. Critical contributions on social media platforms are deleted or blocked overnight. In return, politicians call on people to avoid alternative news sources and to trust information from authorities only.
2 There are signs of an impending vaccination campaign, the primary goal of which is to contain this and future pandemics. The planned implementation by law is a nationwide compulsory vaccination "for the benefit of all", i.e. a compulsory cure with far-reaching health consequences.
3) In the USA, there are independently confirmed reports according to which the currently empty school buildings are being equipped with 5G by mobile phone providers disguised as cleaning companies. There are also indications that many
o ist Realität geworden. Eingeschränkte Menschen-, Grund- und Bürgerrechte in dutzenden Staaten der Welt. Panikartige Hamsterkäufe, Goldknappheit, Börseneinbrüche, Kurzarbeit, Warenknappheit, medizinische Notversorgung. Eine ganz neue Zeitqualität historischen Ausmaßes bestimmt langsam, aber sehr eindrücklich unser Leben.
4. actively contribute to education. Most people are not aware that the tried and tested authoritarian "crisis management" based on the pattern of problem (virus) - reaction (panic) - solution (state aid) is at the expense of personal and popular freedom. Knowledge is only power if it can be applied. The vast majority still believes almost blindly in the misinformation and misinformation of the mainstream media, whose aim is not to enlighten but to condition certain beliefs. If you are seeking enlightenment, you should argue soberly and factually and not get caught up in emotionally charged accusations or suspicions.
5. do not catastrophize. An effective tool in threatening situations such as this is to put the current state of affairs into perspective and place it in a larger context. It helps, for example, to clarify one's own options for action or to imagine scenarios that are worse. The current situation also leads, for example, to reflection on what is essential for life. For many people it is already an enormous relief to know that the fear of a deadly virus is more unfounded than the fear of dying in traffic.
