The greatest transfer of wealth in human history took place during Covid-19 lockdowns with Covid masks and Personal Protection Equipment. The rest of the world was impoverished.[i]But the tipping point is here now: Two years of Covid ‘panicdemic’ and WHO staged ‘Permanent Emergency’ has shown us that ‘the Emperor has no clothes’, comprehensively.
In the ‘West’ versus the ‘Rest” face-off, which the Covid-masked new hybrid trade and cyber Cold War looks like, the Rest has come out on top—having bested the West.
The Euro-American Empire is almost done and dusted; its legitimacy shattered as the Truth leaks out: The Gain of Function (GoF) research-based, Covid virus and vaccine bio-warfare project (partly subcontracted to Wuhan labs), to digitalize, govern and control, the world, its wealth, populations and migration with a CV-Mask, while taking down “emerging economies’ and ‘China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), is coming apart at the seams.

By now, it is not a secret that Moderna’s mRNA injection was a United States (US) Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program to manufacture ‘vaccines’ at ‘warped speed’. Nor is it a secret that the same company holds patents on some Cononavirus sequences.
All the Data shows that Covid-19 was mild in the Global South, particularly Asia and Africa, which has beaten the virus without ‘vaccines’ despite poverty and poor health care systems.
Rather, Covid-19 appears to have decimated and divided the ‘First World’ despite and arguably because of its advanced biotechnology and Big Data-dependent Health Systems and mRNA injections and global human genome maps. Not to mention over-consuming, co-morbidities-intensive, hyper-digital lifestyles.
The Global South has outperformed the so-called “advanced” techno-cyborgs of the West on Covid-19. So too it seems the other Emergency, CoP-26, a.k.a. Climate “Emergency” and Anthropocene discourse (Agenda 21), meant to bend the Rest to the corporate agri-business and energy agenda of the West, to enable “Green-washing” of big and dirty oil companies and their rebranding as captains of clean, green renewable (LNG) energy technology as part of Climate catastrophe ‘Disaster Capitalism’.
Western Vaccine Cards, Bio-Politics and Digital Surveillance beacons of Freedoms
The boot is now on the other foot! The West will have to eat humble pie and learn how to fight Covid-19 from the “Rest”—the colonized and denigrated Third World—Africa and Asia, with its teeming masses. Covid-19 has also deeply divided ‘First World’ societies and economies (Euro-America and its NATO, QUAD and AUKUS allies), where democracy seems increasingly a farce for the rich and connected to perform. The Covid-19 ‘panicdemic’ increasingly looks like a disease of the “First world” although it was supposed to target ‘minorities” everywhere.
In Africa fewer than 30 per cent are ‘vaccinated’ but Covid deaths are few, and so too, in much of Asia with its huge populations. This, despite the Hunger Virus unleashed by the World Health Organization’s (WHO), criminal Lockdown policy recommendations that have caused mass impoverishment.
Indeed, it increasingly appears that the mass rollout of inadequately tested and trialled Pfizer and Moderna mRNA injections have done much of the damage to Euro-American populations as the numbers of Vaccine Adverse Events (VAE), Antibody-Dependent Enhancement (AED) cases mount. Covid-proofing with leaky gene-therapies simply has not worked in the rich West. The next pandemic would be of the ‘vaccine’ injured.
Simultaneously, Democratic Rights and freedoms are being stripped fast and loose with the Covid-19 mask at hand in so-called “advanced” Western Democracies, as vaccine mandates and passports kick in amidst massive protests on the streets and in the Courts.
The US and Europe with their vaccine cards, bio-politics and digital surveillance are hardly beacons of Democratic Rights, Liberty and Freedoms these days, and certainly cannot lecture anyone on Social and Economic Justice, Rights or Equality. Just remember Julien Assange languishing in Belmarsh Prison for exposing the war crimes of the Empire.
Global Pandemic Narrative: “Divid and Rule”
The Covid Global Pandemic narrative with Vaccine and mask mandates have taken “Divide and Rule” to a whole new level.
Clearly, the Covid-19 narrative to legitimate snooping on one’s own citizens and cover-up ‘Digital Colonialism’ under the guise of protecting Society and Community while destroying our COMMUNITY, RELIGIOUS AND SOCIAL LIFE and digitally hacking our brains and bodies with lockdowns and injections is not working. The truckers protests in Canada and Brussels are catching on with war veterans master-minding the protests against experimental vaccines, given a long history of experimentation on military personnel.
“Society must be Defended’ was how the brilliant Philosopher and Historian of ideas, Michel Foucault, who died of AIDS, which he also knew was invented in a Lab (just like the Fall Army Worm that destroyed crops and food security in Africa and Asia not so long ago), ironically glossed the Orwellian bio-warfare program.
Indeed, it is quite clear that ‘society’ and communities as Social Scientists know them had to be Destroyed and Digitalized in order to be defended, masked, surveilled and controlled by Big Brother. This irony has however been lost on a great majority of acquiescent social scientists as pop psychology and therapy has displaced social and communal life and indigenous healing systems such as Ayurveda, Siddha, or Unani.
The Covid-19 project increasingly appears to be an Over the Horizon (OTH) operation for Full Spectrum Dominance (FSD) and re-colonization of small strategic islands like Sri Lanka and the Global South, while simultaneously, promoting de-globalization and hyper-globalization via digital colonialism as core principles of the United Nationals System, as well as, the Natural and Social Sciences have been turned on their heads.
Re-booting Globalization which had enabled a “thousand flowers to bloom” and emerging economies for the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), to various other regions like ASEAN to flourish, in order to suit the imperial agenda appears to be the endgame. So too is China’s BRI for global connectivity and infra-structure development which presents a genuine development alternative to the traditional OECD- Washington Consensus Debt trap development model is under fire
Thus, no longer is it possible for people and goods to travel freely around the world given the on-going Covid-masked cyber and maritime trade wars and “vaccine” mandates and passports: As the current phase of Globalization grinds to a halt, food and commodity shortages and inflation are apparent world –wide.
Meanwhile, finance capital moves around the world with increasing speed, asset stripping in the debt trapped Global South, while the ever more debt-laden US and EU print money copiously, with the USD as Global Reserve Currency, enabling transfer of wealth to the global corporate elite via Hedge Funds like Black Rock, Black stone and Black Water, also associated with military contractors linked to war crimes in Afghanistan.
Postmodernist and social theorist Jean Baudrillard argued that a simulacrum is not a copy of the real, but becomes truth in its own right: the hyperreal. We have lived two years of Covid hyper-reality.

- The big emerging economies are the BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The Western model of development and the so-called aid programmes are mere political weapons that suit Western commercial interests, destroy domestic economies, impoverish the vast majority and further push borrowing nations into the abyss of debt.
