Man Made Ebola's Role in the Scramble for Africa


The ebola crisis in western Africa continues to present several eyebrow raising instances. The major ones include the west storming stricken nations with troops. We should expect them to do what they know best over there, which is use their training and advanced technology to win a military battle against the ebola virus or, alternately, to shoot the occasional African who shows symptoms of ebola dead. Because these symptoms can resemble any of a number of tropical diseases, and they can also be a product of an electronic, chemical or biological weapon offensive that these military units are capable of, and we know from the many theaters of war they are responsible for that they do not hesitate to use the weapons even on their own people, we can expect the numbers of those who will perish in west Africa to be more than would otherwise have been the case if this pathogen was the sole cause.

Ostensibly, the west feels sending soldiers is the best way of helping reverse the crisis and preventing their own western societies from experiencing disaster unknown before should the virus leap frog accross continents, and so on and so forth.

There have been far too many illogical statements made, and several strange moves that have raised the need to unearth the ulterior motive that is hinted at. The only sensible explanation to these wierd happenings comes when another truth about the region is brought into the picture. This happens to be what the map of the epicenters of the ebola outbreak also almost precisely demarcates. Crude oil deposits, recently discovered, vast reserves of untapped oil. Now this, and only this provides the explanation of why western countries are tripping over their own toes, meeting their own selves around corners, at pains to flood the region with everything but that which it needs most. The humanitarian response that sends soldiers to a pandemic struck region has an ulterior motive. It is in fact a very bold and clever move aimed at basically check-mating competitors in the scramble for a natural resourse in this part of Africa. It has been likened to an occupation of these African countries by the back door.

Everything else that would be puzzling about current events in this region finds its explanation in this reality ... the fast-tracked vaccines, bogus clinical trials given the nod by non other than the World Health Organization (WHO), whose assistant director general Marie-Paule Kieny is known to have made the remark that the vaccines have an "... acceptable safety profile".

Another equally alarming reality explained by this is how Africans in the region are getting dehumanized. Forced to supress their emotions regarding sufferers, made to tell on each other, to witchhunt, to avoid each other over the most general of symptoms, there will be untold negative consequences as a result of wholesale measures that may in fact be very effective at stopping transmission but are being applied without the benefit of professional social-psychological guidance. This is very necesary. There is no way society can be tampered with at the level it is in west Africa without expecting negative mentalities to develop that will be hard to correct, that could destroy the fabric of society. This is a certainty when one realizes what is also getting affected here on a wholescale extent, as witness instances of relatives being forced to hold back on what comes naturally where loved ones are concerned, is repression. Serious consequences are inevitable.

In west Africa today, we are witnessing the deliberate creation of stigma for ebola, now inexplicably renamed a catchier EVD for Ebola Virus Disease. These are lessons or, shall we say, tricks on manipulation gained from experience with HIV. If you doubt this, then change the name of any common tropical killer pathogen into a technical term and see the effect this will have on how you perceive the disease. Rename malaria to Malaria Bug Disease, which will become MBD. It is my view that the ebola name change makes it easier to rhym and say even in inapropriate instances, probably because it leaves the utterer with a sense the senselessness of the utterance is in fact sensible, maybe because the erudite intonations will be there to conceal obtuseness, and/or placing the disease into a technical realm ... beyond the comprehention of a common level of understanding. All in all, the conclusion can be drawn that a psychological game is being played out on west Africans that aims to make dog-eat-dog politics the norm of life, if by this the attention of the people is permanently averted from issues of value to them, in this case proper control of their own resources.

The blatancy and extent this campaign is instilling negativity in response to a crisis far surpasses that witnessed with HIV/AIDS. To me, the blatant moves are the product of nerve gained as a result of the success of the HIV/AIDS venture. This means that it is now a foregone conclusion that Africans are easy to manipulate at this sensitive social level, that all can be fooled all the time or ... trouble makers can be eliminated at will.

Negativity and negative social attitudes were sown in many African countries in the wake of similar campaigns in the past that utilised methods that were similarly deliberately misguided, usually dictated to locals by influential actors in western cultural surroundings who were interested in African sensibilities only to the extent that they could be abused, could not care less if the result was that Africans lost their sense of community, here again ostensibly to control the spread of HIV/AIDS. I was not in Africa at the time of this nefarious campaign ... which put me at an advantage when I returned, when the intended effects had taken hold because, not being the fish in water that gradually gets coloured, I could see clearly how much the mentality of people had been affected. The change was palpable, and shocking. I am not the only one in this. There are many others out there who had also had the advantage of seeing the muddy waters and expressed as much shock as I did. For me, African people had become mean hearted and overly petty. This impression was not the result of having spent too much time in an affluent clime where abundance makes for security and a more humane nature. I attributed the general meanness to projection. With HIV/AIDS, the behavioural norm enforced by a campaign that stigmatized sufferers was to pass for the uninfected and think this is what others were also doing. The message in the campaign to eradicate the disease complicated matters further.

What was repeated by professionals and normative world institutions such as the WHO is that a negative result on an HIV/AIDS test was not definitive. This caused much anxiety among as much those who regularly went for tests, the other group that did not, and the cross section of those who pretended. People could never be sure of their status and thus were bound to see demons in everyone else with the result they lost it on several planes, most especially on the natural human attitude to disease, (infectious or not, curable or not), experience of disease, and how being sick is regarded in society.

If we consider the fact disease is part of life, then the witch hunt and self-fulfilling prophecy tendecies engendered by foreign born efforts to control the spread of HIV/AIDS in Africa have made this an untruth, encouraged an idiotic culture where people feel it is normal to pretend not to be sick, if only they can avoid getting stigmatized, if only they can be left alone by petrified people whose permanent resort is to chant down anyone they visually diagnose as infected with the virus, and also negatively affected a needed sense of community by creating a battleground in which the well-being of the whole, and as such of self, is constantly getting undermined. To the number of casualties were added people who are intrapunitive or introverted. These, and similar personality profiles, were bound to fare less favourably under such circumstances, especially when they were not yet mature enough to make a healthy analysis of their situation.

The background to all of the activities we see in west Africa is a disease that is not new on the continent, that, according to the linked article below, was introduced the same way all the other strange diseases became more common in Africa than anywhere else on the planet ... by way of biological weapon research. The article is a must read because it is a good introduction to the whole issue of biological weapon research on the continent, and provides a reality worth always keeping in mind when confronted/dealing with the spreading crisis of Ebola in western Africa, a reminder that we here on this continent have not just been found to be easy guinea pigs, but that we are under attack. An undeclared war, the same kind that wiped out the Indians in America, is being waged on us. We are at war. There is a need for us to know not just what we are dying from and why, but what those waging all manner of offensives on us, for all manner of reasons, using anything on us, even that which can cause permanent genetic alteration and/or extinction, are prepared to do to get what they want. We no longer need deceive our own selves about our real relevance in this system when it is crystal clear that those with more power than we have, those with technologies beyond our imaginations, care less what becomes of us as a result of what they do to us on a social and biological level.
