Covid-19 Crash Update

This article is being written largely due to a really important video presentation and open discussion between people such as Glen Greenwald and Edward Snowden. The video discussion provides an important extension to the Covid-19 Crash series of articles in that it deals with “disaster capitalism” which is the basis of the first article in this series, whereby the powers that be wait for a natural or engineered disasters to bring into force a lot of measures that are not in the public interest.

Covid-19 Crash Update

Glen Greenwald, who aided Julian Assange, and Wikileaks, to deliver a huge amount of data to the public, including the video which showed Reuters journalists being knowingly gunned down.

The July 12, 2007, Baghdad airstrikes were a series of air-to-ground attacks conducted by a team of two U.S. AH-64 Apache helicopters in Al-Amin al-Thaniyah, New Baghdad during the Iraqi insurgency which followed the Iraq War. On April 5, 2010, the attacks received worldwide coverage and controversy following the release of 39 minutes of gunsight footage by the Internet whistleblower website WikiLeaks. The footage was portrayed as classified, but its confessed leaker, U.S. Army soldier Chelsea Manning, testified in 2013 that the video was not classified. The video, which WikiLeaks titled Collateral Murder, showed that the crew fired on a group of men and laughed at some of the casualties, some of whom were civilians and reporters. An anonymous U.S. military official confirmed the authenticity of the footage, which provoked global discussion on the legality and morality of the attacks.


The Patriot Act, introduced after 9/11, endures for nearly 15 years beyond it’s expiration date, and any attempt to alter it fail, never mind there being no attempt to rescind it.

The Patriot Act is regularly being used to declare war on foreign nations.

The USA PATRIOT Act (commonly known as the Patriot Act) is an Act of the United States Congress that was signed into law by U.S. President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. The title of the Act is a contrived three letter initialism (USA) preceding a seven letter acronym (PATRIOT), which in combination stand for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001. The acronym was created by 23-year-old Congressional staffer Chris Cylke.


He also makes the very clear observation that we are being trained to see each other as “vectors of something deadly”, instead as friends and neighbours.

This is the old divide and rule principle very much taken to it’s logical conclusion. It is divide and rule in it’s most extreme form.

This really is a much watch video:

I make the case for greed being the precursor to a move toward a more totalitarian state in my recent article ::  Our Economy Is Way More Sick Than Us!  ::

This incredibly well researched article in The Intercept, by James Risen, offers a real clue as to what is really going on during Covid-19 lockdown.

It amply serves to illustrate our inexorable move towards totalitarianism :: Under Cover of Covid-19:

Under Cover of Covid-19, Donald Trump Ramps Up His War on Truth-Tellers

Freedom of speech is fundamental to civil liberties! This is why the fight for Julian Assange is also incredibly important on a political level as well as on a personal level.

I deal with the issues of the creation of an autocratic state due to unbridled greed in another article in the Covid-19 series entitled :: Our Economy Is Way More Sick Than Us!
