Robert F. Kennedy Jr., one of my activist heroes, has written a powerful Foreword to my new book, co-authored with Dr. Mercola, titled The Truth About COVID-19, which will be released on April 26. You can pre-order the book here.
Reinforcing what OCA and our allies have been writing for the past year, RFK Jr. warns that “Government technocrats, billionaire oligarchs, Big Pharma, Big Data, Big Media, the high-finance robber barons and the military industrial intelligence apparatus” are utilizing the COVID-19 crisis as “shock therapy” to force the US and global body politic to surrender to a new fear-based regime that can only be described as biofascism.
As RFK Jr. writes:
“Dick Cheney used the 911 attack to launch his ‘long war’ against amorphous terrorism and the Patriot Act abridgments that laid the groundwork for the modern surveillance state.
Now the medical cartel and its billionaire Big Tech accomplices have invoked the most potent, frightening and enduring enemy of all — the microbe.
And who can blame them? Increasing the wealth and power of the oligarchy is seldom a potent vessel for populism. Citizens accustomed to voting for their governments are unlikely to support policies that make the rich richer, increase political and social control by corporations, diminish democracy and reduce their civil rights.
So demagogues must weaponize fear to justify their demands for blind obedience and to win public acquiescence for the demolition of civil and economic rights.
Of course, the first casualty must always be freedom of speech. After stoking sufficient panic against the hobgoblin du jour, robber barons need to silence protest against their wealth and power-grabs.”
