Oftentimes those of us who call things as we see them, those of us who possess the insight to see what is truly occurring behind the guise of a façade, are labelled conspiracy theorists. Our analyses of certain events, certain situations, are cast aside by the mainstream and by the supporters of those who perpetrate the events occurring within these so-called “conspiracy theories”. But soon those same “conspiracy theories” come to fruition, their creators blatantly putting them on full display for all to see, knowing they will likely get away with it because of how blind their following is. This poses a significant danger to society.
The last year or so in particular has seen many theories discussed by those who can see what is really going on with COVID-19 and all that surrounds it. Most often, it is those on the Right who are capable of seeing reality and calling it out for what it really is. Every time we do so, those on the opposite side of the political spectrum start loosely throwing around the terms “conspiracy theorist” and “conspiracy theory”. It is unsurprising, as it is often individuals on their side who are perpetrating nefarious plots. But, as it seems to turn out far too often, we crackpots are right.
But don’t take it from me. Take it from the evidence. Throughout the time of COVID-19, we have made a growing number of claims that were refuted by the opposing side as conspiracy theories. We said the virus originated in a lab in Wuhan, China, not from a Chinese wet market. As it turns out, more evidence continues to come to light that this claim is likely accurate, as much as they want to try to deny it. We claimed the virus was being used by the elite to gain power. They said it was nonsense. Yet politicians, unelected bureaucrats, and various other elites have indeed used COVID-19 as an excuse to consolidate power, taking more than they were gifted by the people of their nations and using it to invoke fear within them and control them.
We claimed the World Health Organization (WHO) could not be trusted. The usual suspects appeared, telling us that we had to “trust the science”, their typical overused tagline. What they do not seem to realise (or maybe it is simply willful ignorance) is that scientists can lie, and consensus on a matter does not necessarily equate to science. If science cannot be questioned, then it is not science. Despite their blind trust in the WHO, it came to light that the offshoot of the ever-corruptible United Nations assisted China in the cover-up, even going so far as to act as if there was some truth to China’s bizarre and baseless claims that the virus originated from Australian meat products. And, predictably, when they were delayed access to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, they expressed mere disappointment, rather than challenging them and going forth to investigate. Their eventual investigation, predictably, turned up nothing. It should come as no surprise given WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was handpicked by President Xi.
We claimed the vaccines would not be able to be trusted. We were labelled “anti-vaxxers”, thrown in with a crowd we do not align with. The truth is most of us expressing our concerns around the COVID vaccines have in the past received many vaccines. Many of us even get the annual flu vaccines. Our skepticism of this vaccine stems from its rushed creation and production. There is no way of knowing what the long-term side effects of such a vaccine are. It is justified. There have already been a number of circumstances in which perfectly healthy people have died after receiving their vaccine around the world. Many times, the so-called “health experts” put it down to “prior conditions”. Yet when we wanted to discuss prior conditions of patients who apparently succumbed to COVID-19, we were shut down. Co-morbidities only seem to matter when it suits a certain agenda.
We claimed the vaccine would be made mandatory, including here in Australia. We were told that would not happen, that it would be completely voluntary. The government even promised as much. Yet it would appear we were right yet again, as governments, particularly at State levels, consider options for restricting those who do not take the vaccine. Some Premiers have already given their blessing for businesses to traverse the path of having the vaccine as a condition of entry, and a condition of work. It is likely that, while the government may not explicitly make the vaccine mandatory, they will do all they can to make the lives of those who opt-out a misery.
We claimed that vaccine passports would be brought into existence. This one was laughed off by many, tossed aside as another giant conspiracy theory. Yet the idea has been touted by some politicians in Australia, and only this week in the United States, Joe Biden’s administration have made it known that they will launch vaccine passports that would be required to engage in commerce and track Americans that take the vaccine.
Many of these occurrences, in particular the vaccine passports, point toward the reality of another “conspiracy theory” that many Conservatives have been touting for several years: The Great Reset. It should come as no surprise that a group of unelected rich and powerful elites, led by a German, seek to gain as much power and control as they can, likely in another dangerous attempt to utter in a “utopia”. Without doubt, it would be anything but a paradise for those living within it. It would bear a greater resemblance to the political dystopia of Orwell’s 1984. For the last year, they have used the slogan “Build Back Better”, and have told us “You will own nothing, and you will be happy.” It is nefarious, it is utterly frightening, and it should scare the living daylights out of anyone with even an inkling of common sense.
For as long as things like these are labelled conspiracy theories, the mainstream will dismiss them as untrue, and allow them to progress. It is crucial that reality is put front and centre for them to see before it is too late.
So, next time someone tells you any of the above is a nutty conspiracy theory remind them of the following:
Yesterday’s conspiracy theory is today’s reality.
