Cataclysmic times tend to produce revelations about the circumstances that have brought people to the unimaginable destructions which have killed so many people: Which in this case, if this continues to remain untreated will kill billions more!
This involves something that has crept quietly into and throughout the entire population of the planet—and yet this diseased-flaw has still not even been noticed—yet! Whether we are talking about corporations, or governments or religions in every case the flaw lies in the relationship between a so-called higher authority and ourselves. And in virtually every such relationship today the filthy rich assume the mantle of authority and dictate harshly to everyone else (who is of course automatically beneath those with this artificial authority). In other words we have “KEEPERS” that make all our decisions for us, while “we” are expected to remain silent and just follow whatever orders we are given. In other words no matter our actual-age, we are all expected to behave like children forever looking to a higher authority for everything that is needed or anything that we MUST DO, to remain in good standing with our surrogate parental authorities—no matter how WRONG the cold and inhuman dictates might be.
When you take a step back and look at the world you cannot help but SEE that the bulk of the global population has always been treated like children with no volition of their own.
When the black-plague wiped out a third of the civilized world in old-world Europe: The surviving art world spent a hundred years painting and drawing skeletons and DEATH. The Catholic Church lost huge masses of people who suddenly realized that they had not been “protected” by their “god.” These “children’ began to question everything from that point forward, and they began to understand that the answers they needed did not come from heavenly beings nor did their lives depend upon some higher human control system—the truth was that we are each responsible for whatever we decide to do with our own gift of life. Once that Rubicon had been crossed, real life and the responsibilities that go with it began again, for those that declared their INDEPENDENCE from the whisperings of prophets who’s actual existence depends on gifts from those they “advised” and not from the sweat or the blood they expended to live their own lives.

cientists have long worried that an influenza virus that has ravaged poultry and wild birds in Asia might evolve to pose a threat to humans. Now scientists financed by the National Institutes of Health have shown in a laboratory how that could happen. In the process they created a virus that could kill tens or hundreds of millions of people if it escaped confinement or was stolen by terrorists.
We nearly always champion unfettered scientific research and open publication of the results. In this case it looks like the research should never have been undertaken because the potential harm is so catastrophic and the potential benefits from studying the virus so speculative.
Unless the scientific community and health officials can provide more persuasive justifications than they have so far, the new virus, which is in the Netherlands, ought to be destroyed. Barring that, it should be put in a few government-controlled laboratories with the highest containment rating, known as biosafety level 4. That is how the United States and Russia contain samples of smallpox, which poses nowhere near the same danger of global devastation.
In the future, it is imperative that any such experiments be rigorously analyzed for potential dangers – preferably through an international review mechanism, but also by governmental funding agencies – before they are undertaken, not after the fact as is happening in this case.

I use the word “murder” in this essay–instead of the word “kill”–because capitalists are fully aware that they’re continually causing the death of workers worldwide–and do so deliberately and with premeditation. These capitalist murders are “sanitized” by bought-and-paid-for press and political-economic stooges to make them appear inadvertent and unintended. So it’s necessary to expose these crimes for what they are: capitalists deliberately and consciously murdering workers!
Capitalists are so oblivious to their lethal attitudes and actions resulting in the murder of workers that they celebrate their outrages in TV programs and movies. One of the starkest depictions of capitalists murdering a worker is the movie Waterloo Bridge. This seeming “love story” is actually a stark narration of how the capitalist class in general and in particular a wealthy, spoiled, egomaniacal young man and his dowager mother murdered a naive, brainwashed working class young woman.
