An article co-authored by Dr. Anthony Fauci in 2020 is proving to be as revealing as any of his many public statements. The article by Anthony Fauci and David M. Morens published in Cell recently resurfaced due to the Fauci’s endless campaign that everyone get “vaccinated” regardless of natural immunity or health risk (never mind that the shots don’t stop the spread).
“Unimagined just a few short months ago, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has upended our entire planet, quickly challenging past assumptions and future certainties,” the lengthy article begins.
This is false. The Covid pandemic was war-gamed for years, if not decades prior to 2020. A Pandemic Preparedness and Response panel in November 2017 featured none other than Dr. Fauci.
After discussing vaccines, Fauci said quite plainly, “We are still vulnerable and our public health infrastructure has improved greatly, but without a universal vaccine a single virus would result in a world catastrophe.” So there was a plan already being formulated.
“It possesses simultaneously three characteristics that have allowed it to render an historic assault on the human species, triggering a virtual global ‘lockdown’ as the only weapon against uncontrolled spread,” Fauci also claimed in the article.
Again, this is dishonest. Fauci himself claimed a “universal vaccine” (whatever that means) was the primary means to avoid a “world catastrophe” from a “single virus.”
“It combines the characteristics of being a virus that to our knowledge has never before infected humans in a sustained manner, together with its extraordinary efficiency in transmitting from person to person and its relatively high level of morbidity and mortality, especially among seniors and those with underlying co-morbidities,” he continued. “It indeed is the perfect storm of an emerging infectious disease.”
However, the Covid pandemic isn’t a “perfect storm.” The risks of Covid-related mortality vary greatly by age, underlying health risks, and obesity. A “perfect storm” would affect all people equally. The SARS-CoV-2 virus doesn’t.
“Only a century ago, the 1918 influenza pandemic killed 50 million or more people, apparently the deadliest event in recorded human history,” he goes on. Apparently, this doesn’t qualify as a “perfect storm,” either. A disease with a 99.7% cumulative survival rate apparently is, however.
Critically, after a historical lesson on viral pandemics throughout history, Fauci and Morens get to the heart of the matter: In order to fight viral spread, it is necessary to alter human behavior.
“The 1889 influenza pandemic traveled westward from Asia to Europe along railroad lines and then was exported globally along shipping routes<‘ the article notes. “The 1957 influenza pandemic was spread by ships, but 11 years later the 1968 influenza pandemic was spread along air routes, the first example of global pandemic spread by airplanes. In 1981, acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis was spread between international air hubs in the tropics and some temperate zones (e.g., to Florida and North Carolina). In 2002–2003, SARS was exported by air from Hong Kong to the Western Hemisphere and Europe.”
“In 2019–2020, SARS-CoV-2 was spread globally from China in a similar manner,” the article adds. “These many ancient and modern examples reflect the extraordinary importance of human population growth and movement in spreading diseases: the more populous and crowded we as a species become, and the more we travel, the more we provide opportunities for emerging diseases.”
Now, we get to the crux: The viral pandemics are a pretext for “experts” to transform global human society.
“There are many examples where disease emergences reflect our increasing inability to live in harmony with nature,” the article states. “Nipah virus emergence followed agricultural burning of forests, which led to displacement of infected bats; bats then went to roost in trees that shaded intensively farmed pigs that were crowded into small areas, which led to infection of pigs via bat droppings, which in turn led to human outbreaks in pig farmers (Morens et al., 2004). Fish meal farming by fishermen in waters around the globe damages ecosystems by over-fishing and deprives local residents of food sources, leading to poverty and human movement, which exacerbate the potential for disease emergence. In Asia, the fish meal is used for breeding and over-feeding of farmed animals, often in intensive farming practices, which increase the likelihood of zoonotic diseases. Yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, and Zika are all associated with urban crowding, poor sanitation, and water storage. Over many centuries, urbanization and crowding has led to rodent infestation and to rodent-borne diseases such as plague, murine typhus, and rat-bite fever.”
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that overcrowding in dwellings and places of human congregation (sports venues, bars, restaurants, beaches, airports), as well as human geographic movement, catalyzes disease spread,” the article adds.
Then comes the prescription for puportedly creating a less pandemic-stricken world: “Radical changes that may take decades to achieve.”
“Living in greater harmony with nature will require changes in human behavior as well as other radical changes that may take decades to achieve: rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence, from cities to homes to workplaces, to water and sewer systems, to recreational and gatherings venues,” Fauci argues. “In such a transformation we will need to prioritize changes in those human behaviors that constitute risks for the emergence of infectious diseases.”
“Chief among them are reducing crowding at home, work, and in public places as well as minimizing environmental perturbations such as deforestation, intense urbanization, and intensive animal farming,” the article goes on. “Equally important are ending global poverty, improving sanitation and hygiene, and reducing unsafe exposure to animals, so that humans and potential human pathogens have limited opportunities for contact.”
So, if you get the sense that something is animating Dr. Anthony Fauci besides a recognition of the actual science involving Covid-19, now you know the real agenda behind it all: “Radical changes” that will make a “transformation” of global human society in the manner that the “experts” see fit.
