The Matrix 4 movie is soon to be released and the trailer looks promising. Maybe harkening back to the first movie. I feel we have collectively entered the realms of a global society on the blue pill. (This link gives an explanation of the blue pill/red pill for those of you not familiar with the film).
I recently had Covid. I now have natural antibodies. In France where I live that also allows me to get a health pass for the next six months but I refuse to be part of that Apartheid system. So even though I have antibodies and am, according to some studies, statistically safer to be around than vaxxinated people, I still can’t go to movie theatres, cafés, restaurants, etc… unless I get prodded up my nose to prove I am not a threat to those around me. I realise it is my choice as I didn’t opt to be a card-carrying, fine, upstanding member of society. So I am now marginalised.
In our area we all accepted the fact that Covid would eventually visit us. If you have read my other blogs you will know why. A vast majority of us refused to live in fear, stop socialising and wear masks. So when Covid recently came and stayed a while, some of us were more badly affected than others but all of us who have had it survived. I also have vaxxinated friends in the village who can live “normal” lives now, and breathe easier as they now feel better protected, but can’t take too deep a breath, as more boosters await because many studies have shown that efficacy in the jab wanes at about 40% a month.(I should have not put this number in as I can not find the two articles that made the reference, my mistake, but I will not take it out, as it would change the original blog, but I do want to apologise for putting an un-footnoted number in this blog) Many of us have refused to get the health pass, while others, deeming it necessary to live life here in France, succumbed to the system, some saving their livelihoods, others keeping their rights to feel that they are now free to do as they please. I pass no judgment on either camp. It’s all about choice. Or is it?
If we collectively take the red pill we may see what is hiding in plain sight. We are living a dystopian existence. My good friend, who is also my neighbour, (and the guy who gave me Covid;-) plays guitar in a duo. I have seen them play many times over the years. I have filmed them, taken photos, and watched them progress as musicians, but now I no longer have the right to see them play publically because of my choice to not get my privilege card of entry. I have another good friend in England who had Covid – he has strong antibodies, but in the entertainment industry where he works he would lose his venue insurance unless he is jabbed, even though it isn’t recommended for those who have had Covid, and natural immunity wanes at only 5% a month! (Nor should I have not put this number in as I can not find the two articles that made the reference, my mistake, but I will not take it out, as it would change the original blog, but I do want to apologise for putting an un-footnoted number in this blog)Another French person I know who is a professional mountain biker had Covid, also tested positive for antibodies but was forced to have at least one jab to be allowed to enter America to race. As a UK resident flying into Europe it is commonly accepted to pay more in PCR tests to get on a plane then the ticket itself cost, and it doesn’t matter if you are vaxed or not! My good friend here in France needs to get tested every third day to visit her son fighting for his life in an intensive care unit, while his sister must pay twenty five euros for the same test to visit her brother because she is not a French resident. An acquaintance in England recently told me he had just tested positive for Covid presently asymptomatically after having both jabs, saying happily how the vaxxine worked. I chuckled to myself thinking how he had been an infected asymptomatic person with Covid walking openly on the street or going into cafés, unknowingly potentially spreading the virus. So much for doing it for others! Big choices to be taken, lots of money to be made for the corporations calling the shots (excuse the pun), and many tough decisions to be made by people who don’t necessarily believe in the vaxxination, but need to work, earn a living and feed their families. We are being played with like a mouse trapped by a cat, and we have accepted this as reality. I ask one question? Why?
I just read this article of how Moderna stock has gone up 360% recently, but there is fear of the stock dropping because of the booster debate going on. The article has lots about stock prices in it, the human side and adverse reactions or loss of life never mentioned at all. The good news and bad news is tied in with financial loss or gain. Boosters translate into dollars, and Covid has been a definite winner for Moderna financially. If we had all chosen to live in a world led by capitalist rules, modern medical, take a pill for every ill, type of thinking, I would be less frustrated. That is not really possible with over seven billion people on the planet, and I am thankful for that. The world has not collectively come to where we are now, we have been pushed, shoved, censored, lied to, coerced and now profited and controlled by our own governments and a small handful of powerful corporations. The Biden administration, and the head of the CDC, both said not long ago that mandatory vaccines in America would never come to pass. What happened to that promise? Power and money do funny things to people. If you think that for once the American, British, Australian… governments and big-pharma are actually acting altruistically, I do urge you to take the red pill, and, as you may have noticed, I am not a person into taking pills or jabs to keep healthy! Here is a recent post from Russell Brand some of you may find interesting.
I recently tried to share this interview with Eric Clapton on my Facebook page where it was basically made invisible. Why can’t we easily hear the voices of the injured and the let down or have access to the many diverse voices of science out there that could lead us down different paths to health? Power and control are the answers I come to no matter which way I look. Let me make a small prediction here. In our collective blue pill existence, society at large will be lining up to become human pin cushions for the next five years; boosters every eight months for a virus that has still not proved to be more deadly than the common flu in certain age groups. Hmmmm.
I, for one, and many of those around me have left mainstream thought and life on purpose. We have made conscious decisions to live with less, have more time to be free to spend time with our families and friends, eat well and look after our bodes in a more holistic way. With the world seemingly accepting Apartheid as normal – illness, obesity, bad nutrition, and stress being the bench mark for our modern lifestyles, plus the ‘us and them’ divisive thinking as to how modern life is to be lived now and forevermore – I am, perhaps surprisingly, still hopeful. I am hopeful that more eyes will be opened to the fact that so much of modern day life was broken already; Covid just exacerbated the whole situation. Now, with health passes, obvious control of our freedoms and choices of personal health, while mega corporations just get richer, yes, I am hopeful more people will be reaching for the red pill. The time to fix the many broken systems we support and live with is not only fast-approaching, but has arrived!
Change isn’t easy, and times of transition always come with lots of upheaval. If any of you reading this truly feel that the worldwide vaxxination programs are really based on doing it for others, and not being driven by profit, I offer you a quick look at the political, big business world from the perspective the red pill offers. First and foremost we have seen that government can mysteriously find billions of dollars, especially when it comes to military spending, but world-wide millions still die every year from hunger. Lands are illegally occupied as so many suffer under regimes backed (and usually armed) by our so-called Democratic governments. Minerals are mined in countries where wars are fought to control these resources, but we close our eyes to the horrors because we all benefit daily from their use, be it diesel for our cars or exotic metals for the numerous gadgets we now live with as integral parts of our lives. Our natural world and its population are being ripped apart from our consumerist attitude to life and all things living on the planet. If you would really like to do something very simple and make a powerful statement that you are willing to act in the interest of others get rid of your Amazon Prime membership – or stop shopping on Amazon altogether. Stop supporting the founder of the company riding in his big penis into space, while his employees work in dire conditions here on earth. Take eleven minutes to watch this video clip by George Monbiot putting those space flights into a better perspective. When Amazon is a business we all remember used to exist instead of the fifth richest company in the world, maybe then we can give a small pat on our collective backs.
Why not call out and help put an end to the American military drone murder system which also happens to be a nine billion dollar market doled out to a small handful of companies, and accidentally kills innocent people nearly on a monthly basis, most recently killing an aid worker and his seven children delivering water bottles in Afghanistan. How do we accept, as truly concerned citizens, the fact that America and Britain are so tied up in selling weapons that it is an integral part of their national economies, and conflict of interest abounds with the so-called “revolving door” in the weapons industry? In fact over the last thirty years, nearly 530 people have worked both as members of the Armed Services and Foreign Relations committees of both houses of Congress or the Defense Appropriations subcommittees, and then as lobbyists for defense companies. Can we call to task companies creating toxic chemicals and winning the rights to spray these toxins over us and our planet while spending literally millions on lobbyists and succeeding in yet another “revolving door” scenario where in 2016 thirty seven out of forty eight lobbyists for a well known biotech company had previously held government jobs. When Obama was running for president he said this in December 2007, “The revolving door — the pattern of people going from industry to agency, back to industry — that will be closed in the Obama White House.” By the time he left the White House the reality did not reflect that promise. The top lobbyist for the private health insurance industry that continues to battle aspects of Obamacare is a former Health and Human Services official who played a powerful role in implementing the legislation. The head of the software industry’s lobbying group is a former Obama White House appointee who oversaw the negotiation and enforcement of the intellectual property rules essential to that business. And an Obama aide deeply involved in crafting the White House’s broadband Internet policy now serves as the chief lawyer for the telecom industry group seeking to legally overturn those same rules.
Why are we not up in arms boycotting companies that started opioid epidemics and got away with it by paying fines, and then went onto to make record profits injecting the world with a government mandated experimental vaxxine? Can we be at least a little baffled when private sector, billion dollar corporations – with the backing of corporate funded governments – dictate who can sit in a café, eat at a restaurant or go to the movies by forcing populations to prove we have injected their products into our bodies? Can we get a little ruffled when these same companies have been given lawsuit shields that allow them to roll out their products with no legal comeback to those mal-effected. Here is a quote from the House Appropriations Committee leading democrat over fifteen years ago when President Bush was signing a bill to give these companies indemnity. “The conference committee ended its work with the understanding, both verbal and in writing, that there would be no, I repeat, no legislative liability protection language inserted in this bill.” But hours after the conference was officially closed, more than forty pages of legislative language creating the liability shield, in violation of both the House and Senate rules were inserted. Politicians balked, but to no good end. Here is a quote from then Senator Edward Kennedy, “The final language in the bill provides a basic blank check for the industry, not only on pandemic flu, but just about any other kind of, quote, epidemic that anyone can think of.” Well, here we are. The FDA used to be funded by tax payers, meaning it was a government agency, but increasingly over the years it is now funded by big-pharma, the actual companies it is supposed to be regulating. These so-called “user fees” now account for 45% of its budget! Since 2005 the amount of standard new application drugs that are approved have jumped from 38 to 61%! Are our systems really working in the interest of the people? Keep on swallowing that blue pill and it might seem that way, but these handful of examples squeezed into these last few paragraphs are how government, lobbyists, and multi-billion dollar corporations really work. The show we see makes it look like our governments act for the people, unfortunately the reality behind closed doors is very different. If Dr. Fauci’s probable lying about possible American funding for ‘gain of function’ research to the Wuhan lab in China ever comes to light, will you then swallow the red pill? Will it make you question what is happening in this world when quite possibly the people who created the pandemic are in control of how we deal with it? Will that have to be the final tipping point?
Get out there, boycott or protest everything that is unfair, let’s make our lives a little inconvenient without our favourite movies or ‘made by slave labour’ items arriving on our doorstep. Let’s question why we applaud a system of Apartheid, somehow believing it is done for the greater good. Can we volunteer more, feeding the homeless in a local soup kitchen, cleaning up a local beach, work for an NGO for a few months? Can we think more about the consequences our individual actions may have across the board of our daily decision making ? Can we actually pressure our governments to start more programs helping people eat less processed and fast foods? Can we somehow start obesity awareness groups instead of governments and corporations injecting us with a cocktail of chemicals labelling this as our only possible preventative medicine? By encouraging people to take control of their own bodies, becoming an integral part of a truly healthy society, and disempowering those who profit from unhealthy, fearful populations is a big step forward. The list of what we can do in an attitude of togetherness is virtually endless.
If we truly feel getting a jab, and coercing others through an unfair system of Apartheid to do the same is the best we can do as a free, open, caring, democratic society, I think I can see the appeal of the blue pill. It’s an easy way to change nothing, limit ourselves to one way of thinking and just exist in the current matrix. We do need to tread carefully though, while the effects of the blue pill work well in keeping the status quo ticking along, other mandates will come along without any open debate or dialogue to lead us all down narrower lanes towards a future where we have no say in how we live our lives, take care of our own health, raise our children, spend our leisure time, and the list goes on.
C’mon, let’s take the red pill please. There it is right next to the television remote control manipulating how society thinks, lives, and acts. Many of you who read my blog from April 2020 were excited about what the future might bring and were willing to join me for an exotic drink after this was “All over”. I hope this wasn’t the future you were envisioning those short seventeen months ago. We still have the power to change the way things are, but first we have to try and see them for what they are. I’m ready to join you in that bar, but for now, sadly, I’m not allowed in.
