For weeks now, there is a new scare. The world is on edge again with reports that a “variant of concern” (VOC) has emerged. It is now time to use fear to impose draconian measures.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/02/14/fear-appeal-the-science-of-using-fear-to-manipulate-people-into-submission/; … Continue reading It is now time to drumbeat for more and more vaccines that have killed over a million people and injured tens of millions more.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/06/07/nicanor-perlas-scientists-sound-alarm-vaccines-will-kill-millions/
CNN, recently caught admitting to fear-mongering to sell news,https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/04/17/cnn-technical-director-admits-network-used-fear-in-covid-coverage-to-drive-ratings-up/ is unrepentant. It is continuing its disreputable practice of stoking fear. CNN is spreading the fake news that the unvaccinated are ‘variant factories’.https://edition.cnn.com/2021/07/03/health/unvaccinated-variant-factories/index.html?utm_content=2021-07-10T12%3A01%3A24&utm_source=fbCNN&utm_term=link&utm_medium=social
Meanwhile, these unceasing calls for vaccines only turn our attention away from a very important proven fact. Scientific studies are clearly showing that our healthy natural immune system is more than capable of defending us against all current and future variants of the Covid-19 virus. We will elaborate on this towards the end of the article.
The Delta variant is not the only VOC. Others are emerging and will continue to emerge. We need to understand how the natural tendency of viruses to create a lot of variants are and will be used by evil actors to advance their greed for money and their lust for total power, as manifested in their pursuit of total control of humans and their societies.
Using the Delta variant as an example, let us see how all the fear-mongering about VOCs sustain false pandemics, lockdowns, facemasks, social distancing, and all the other scientifically unproven directives that are basically mechanisms to control the general population.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/05/25/nicanor-perlas-guidebook-to-end-lockdowns-now-an-executive-summary/ It is also just a facade to rationalize the need for even more rapid and widespread mass vaccinations, most likely with coercive vaccine mandates, which would seek to vaccinate even babies and young children.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/05/31/lawyers-sue-canadian-government-to-halt-all-covid-measures-forced-upon-children/
The Delta Variant Fear Narrative as Exhibit A
Let us first listen to the fear-mongering surrounding the Delta variant to get to know the latter better before we deconstruct this false narrative and show the fear appeal embedded in it.
“The highly contagious delta variant is the fastest and fittest coronavirus strain yet, and it will ‘pick off’ the most vulnerable people, especially in places with low Covid-19 vaccination rates, World Health Organization officials” announced.”All quotes from and about the WHO are from https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/21/covid-delta-who-says-variant-is-the-fastest-and-fittest-and-will-pick-off-most-vulnerable-.html
The WHO also warned that the Delta variant is becoming the dominant version of SARS-CoV-2 worldwide. ‘Studies suggest it is around 60% more transmissible than alpha, which was more contagious than the original strain that emerged from Wuhan, China, in late 2019.’ Delta is now found in 92 countries according to Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the technical head of Covid-19 for WHO.
WHO then sounded the call for more vaccines. ‘(W)world leaders and public health officials can help defend the most vulnerable through the donation and distribution of Covid vaccines’, said Dr. Mike Ryan, the Executive Director of the WHO’s health emergencies program. ‘We can protect those vulnerable people, those front-line workers,’ Ryan said, ‘and the fact that we haven’t, … is a catastrophic moral failure at a global level.’
‘We need to vaccinate now. Get everyone vaccinated now,’ said Dr. Paul Offit, who is the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital.
Controversial US President Joe Biden has also sounded the alarm.
‘Six hundred thousand-plus Americans have died, and with this delta variant you know there’s going to be others as well. You know it’s going to happen. We’ve got to get young people vaccinated,’ Biden said at a community center in Raleigh, North Carolina.”
“The variant, Biden said, is more easily transmissible and potentially deadly, and is ‘especially dangerous for young people.’
‘The data couldn’t be clearer: If you’re vaccinated, you’re safe,’ Biden said. ‘You are still at risk of getting seriously ill or dying if you in fact have not been vaccinated, that’s just the fact.’https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/24/biden-says-more-americans-will-die-as-delta-variant-spreads-you-know-its-going-to-happen.html
The fraudulenthttps://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/06/21/incriminating-emails-show-fauci-in-collusion-with-big-tech-big-pharma-mainstream-media-and-cdc/ but unrepentant Dr. Anthony Fauci, head medical adviser of the White House, echoed the alarm.
‘It just exploded in the U.K. It went from a minor variant to now more than 90% of the isolates in the U.K.,’ Fauci said on NBC’s ‘TODAY’ show. Fauci said the variant has a doubling time of about two weeks and currently accounts for 20% of the isolates in the U.S., which are newly diagnosed infections.” ‘So you would expect, just the doubling time, you know, in several weeks to a month or so it’s going to be quite dominant, that’s the sobering news.’ “He also added that the Delta variant is ‘the greatest threat to eliminating Covid-19.’https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/23/delta-covid-variant-fauci-says-delta-accounts-for-20percent-of-new-cases-in-us.html
Here is a Reuters story: “Delta, Kappa variants surge in Italy to nearly 17% of cases, says health institute”.https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/delta-kappa-variants-surge-italy-nearly-17-cases-says-health-institute-2021-06-25/
In short here is the fear narrative of the Delta variant.
- It is more infectious and fitter than the original Covid-19 virus. (True)
- It is now found in 92 countries. (True)
- In the UK, 90% of covid cases are now due to the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus. (True)
- It is the greatest hindrance to stopping Covid-19. (False)
- Vaccines are needed to stop the Delta variant. It is a moral obligation to mass vaccinate. (False)
- The lives of the unvaccinated are in danger. (False)
- The vaccinated are safe from Delta variant. (False)
Note that, inside the parenthesis, I label a statement as either true or false. I provide the evidence immediately below as to why certain statements of the mainstream narrative are false.
Dismantling the Delta Variant Fear Mongering
These fears are exaggerated. The narrative itself is full of unscientific claims. To begin the process of deconstructing this fear narrative, let us listen to WHO itself.
A. Delta variant more infectious but NOT more deadly
WHO itself admits that, while the Delta variant is ‘the ablest and fastest and fittest’ of the variants of the Covid-19 virus, the Delta variant, like all other SARS-CoV-2 variants have NOT achieved “the combination of high transmissibility and lethality”.https://www.cnbc.com/2021/06/21/covid-delta-who-says-variant-is-the-fastest-and-fittest-and-will-pick-off-most-vulnerable-.html (Emphasis added.)
Translation. The Delta variant is highly infectious BUT it has not been proven to be more deadly. In short, it does not kill more people as some fear.
As proof of this statement, here is a powerful chart (Figure 1 below) coming from Ivor Cummins, a long-time independent Covid-19 researcher.https://www.bitchute.com/video/UGh8fhRIhzqs/ He charted the official statistics for the spread of the Delta variant in the UK (purple-shaded area) showing that the variant was now responsible for 90% of all cases in that country. He then superimposed the hospitalization impact (green line) of the Delta variant. Figure 1shows that, while the cases for the Delta variant continued to increase, the hospitalization impact decreased through time. There was no impact. In short, while the Delta variant is highly infectious, it was not deadly!
Figure 1: Delta Variant – Infectious but not Deadly
B. Covid vaccines do not fully protect one from the Delta variant.
According to one of the most prestigious science journals, Lancet, Pfizer, and Astra Zeneca vaccines are less effective against this variant.https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(21)01358-1/fulltext Other studies have also shown that Pfizer vaccines do not work as well with the Delta variant.https://www.itv.com/news/2021-06-03/covid-pfizer-vaccine-produces-low-level-of-antibodies-against-delta-variant-study-shows The same is true with the more traditional Chinese made vaccines. The antibodies produced by these Covid vaccines are “less effective” on the Delta variant.https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/antibodies-triggered-by-chinese-covid-19-shots-less-effective-delta-variant-2021-06-25/ Even the WHO acknowledges the reality that Covid vaccines are failing to protect the vaccinated from the Delta variant.Vaccines Exhibit “Reduced Efficacy” Against “Delta” Variant, WHO Doctor Warns. See … Continue reading
C. Covid-Vaccinated die more upon contact with Delta variant
Covid vaccines do not fully protect people from the Delta variant. Worse, the Delta variant kills more people who got the vaccines than those who have not gotten the vaccine. The title of this article says it all: “Death rate from variant COVID virus six times higher for vaccinated than unvaccinated, UK health data show.”https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/death-rate-from-variant-covid-virus-six-times-higher-for-vaccinated-than-unvaccinated-uk-health-data-show. See UK official study here … Continue reading (Emphasis added.)
In other words, the majority of new Covid deaths are coming from the vaccinated. They die more easily upon exposure to the Delta variant of the COVID-19 virus.https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/06/20/evidence-of-antibody-dependent-enhancement-majority-of-covid-deaths-are-the-fully-vaccinated-and-ae-attendance-is-breaking-records/
This phenomenon indicates that the well-known killer danger of antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) brought about by the vaccines themselves may be starting to play itself out.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/06/29/vaccines-do-not-fully-control-delta-variant-majority-of-covid-deaths-are-from-vaccinated-evidence-of-dangerous-ade-at-work/ All past efforts of developing any kind of coronavirus vaccines have failed because of ADE. This ADE backlash has previously killed most of the test animals.Dr. Sherri Tenpenny. 20 Mechanisms of Injuries (MOI). How COVID -19 Injections Can Make You Sick…Even Kill You. May 2021 Yet ALL vaccines were given Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) WITHOUT having undergone real animal trials that usually take 2-3 years to complete.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/02/09/nicanor-perlas-the-vaccine-delusion-part-1-cbcp-pro-vaccine-decision-huge-mistake-vaccines-will-not-remove-lockdowns/
In effect, billions of humans, without their informed consent, have now become the experimental animals of cold-blooded murderers inhabiting Big Pharma, regulatory health agencies, corrupt doctors and scientists, predatory quad media, government officials, and others. These greedy and/or power-hungry individuals and institutions continue to desperately push these illegal killer vaccines despite all the evidence that these vaccines and the toxic spike proteinhttps://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/06/10/salk-institute-the-spike-protein-damages-cells-and-causes-vascular-disease-even-without-a-virus/ in them are most likely slaughtering and injuring tens of millions of humans.Op.cit., reference #1above.
D. Covid vaccines have killed and injured tens of millions. Scientists calling for stoppage of mass vaccinations
The Delta variant fear mongers want us to believe that the vaccines are safe; that there is a moral obligation to vaccinate those who still have not taken the shot; and that the (false) pandemic will not end until most of humanity are vaccinated.
In the US, mainstream doctors and scientists are warning that these vaccines are deadly and that all mass vaccinations should stop immediately. Dr. Janci Chunn Lindsay, a molecular biologist and toxicologist, gave public comment to the CDC during the public portion of the latter’s meeting of its Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
In her statement, Dr. Chunn Lindsay asked the CDC to “immediately halt Covid vaccine production and distribution”. (Emphasis added.) She cited the adverse fertility impacts, blood-clotting concerns (coagulopathy), and immune escape as the basis for her request.
On the latter, is the warning on an immune escape by Dr. Geert van den Bossche playing out? Dr. Bossche warned in March 2021 that mass vaccination would create super variants that would escape our immune system.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/03/16/pro-vaccine-expert-onimmune-escape-mass-vaccination-and-the-creation-of-uncontrollable-monster-viruses/ Is the strongly infectious Delta variant such a product of mass vaccination?
In any event, Dr. Chunn Lindsay continued with her comments: ‘We have enough evidence now to see a clear correlation with increased Covid deaths and the vaccine campaigns. This is not a coincidence. It is an unfortunate unintended effect of the vaccines. We simply must not turn a blind eye and pretend this is not occurring. We must halt all Covid vaccine administration immediately before we create a true pandemic that we cannot reign in.’https://www.jennifermargulis.net/halt-covid-vaccine-research-scientist-urges-cdc/
Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., an expert in protein synthesis and a senior research scientist at MIT, believes that Dr. Lindsay’s hypothesis is correct. In responding to Dr. Lindsay’s public comments addressed to CDC, Dr. Seneff said; “I absolutely share these concerns.“Ibid.
Earlier, Dr. Seneff already pointed to the problems of vaccines. She did this in her article in the scientific publication, International Journal of Vaccine Theory, Practice, and Research. The title of her article was clear and specific: “ Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines Against COVID-19”https://ijvtpr.com/index.php/IJVTPR/article/view/23
Dr. Seneff gives a summary of her article.
“We … review both components of and the intended biological response to these vaccines, including production of the spike protein itself, and their potential relationship to a wide range of both acute and long-term induced pathologies, such as blood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, and autoimmune diseases. … We also present a brief review of studies supporting the potential for spike protein “shedding”, the transmission of the protein from a vaccinated to an unvaccinated person, resulting in symptoms induced in the latter.
We finish by addressing a common point of debate, namely, whether or not these vaccines could modify the DNA of those receiving the vaccination. While no studies are demonstrating definitively that this is happening, we provide a plausible scenario, supported by previously established pathways for transformation and transport of genetic material, whereby injected mRNA could ultimately be incorporated into germ cell DNA for transgenerational transmission. We conclude with our recommendations regarding surveillance that will help to clarify the long-term effects of these experimental drugs and allow us to better assess the true risk/benefit ratio of these novel technologies.”
However, there is now scientific evidence that indeed the mRNA can be incorporated into the genome of humans. The risk of having toxic spike proteins passed on to the next generation is real.
Here is what the scientific study from Harvard scientists says:“SARS-CoV-2 RNA reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome.” https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.12.422516v1
“Prolonged SARS-CoV-2 RNA shedding and recurrence of PCR-positive tests have been widely reported in patients after recovery, yet these patients most commonly are non-infectious…. Here we investigated the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 RNAs can be reverse-transcribed and integrated into the human genome and that transcription of the integrated sequences might account for PCR-positive tests. In support of this hypothesis, we found chimeric transcripts consisting of viral fused to cellular sequences in published data sets of SARS-CoV-2 infected cultured cells and primary cells of patients, consistent with the transcription of viral sequences integrated into the genome. To experimentally corroborate the possibility of viral retro-integration, we describe evidence that SARS-CoV-2 RNAs can be reverse transcribed in human cells by reverse transcriptase (RT) from LINE-1 elements or by HIV-1 RT, and that these DNA sequences can be integrated into the cell genome and subsequently be transcribed. Human endogenous LINE-1 expression was induced upon SARS-CoV-2 infection or by cytokine exposure in cultured cells, suggesting a molecular mechanism for SARS-CoV-2 retro-integration in patients. This novel feature of SARS-CoV-2 infection may explain why patients can continue to produce viral RNA after recovery and suggests a new aspect of RNA virus replication.” (Emphasis added.)
One can note that this study is not a study of the mRNA vaccine itself. However, the transcriptase process is exactly what makers of the mRNA are relying upon to make our cells become active producers of the vaccine sequences themselves. See this description by Moderna of its mRNA vaccine technology.https://www.modernatx.com/mrna-technology/science-and-fundamentals-mrna-technology What these pharmaceutical companies carefully avoid mentioning in their official literature is the natural presence of reverse transcriptase in our bodies as can be seen in reference #13 above.
Endless Lockdowns and Booster Vaccine Shots
Despite the massive evidence on the harms that vaccines do, national health authorities continue to ignore the facts and science and continue with their maniacal belief in vaccines. For example, the head of the National Health Service in the UK (the equivalent of the Department of Health in the Philippines) warns: “Covid-19 Vaccine Booster Shots Will Be ‘Needed’ For The Next 10 YEARS”.https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/06/22/nhs-chief-says-covid-19-vaccine-booster-shots-will-be-needed-for-the-next-10-years/ (Emphasis added.) And these booster shots will be given annually.
Formula for Totalitarian Control and Genocide: Variant Scare, More Lockdowns, Continued Roll Out of Killer Vaccines and a Pandemic of Vaccine Deaths
From the above, the formula for chaos, control, serfdom, and death is clear.
- Scare humanity with more and more variants of concern (VOC).
- Justify continued mass rollout and booster shots of killer vaccines due to these VOCs.
- Meanwhile, the vaccines will be triggering a) the creation of more VOCs, while b) killing and seriously harming people at the same time.
- Amidst these fear appeals and slaughter of humans, the fear level of people will continue to escalate.
- The stress will shut down the effective functioning of their immune system, leading to more deaths due to Covid-19 virus, its variants, and the vaccines.
- As more and more people die and the deaths magnified by the complicit media, people will beg the authorities to remove their freedoms and rights in exchange for the illusion of safety brought about by more lockdowns and vaccines. The Stockholm Syndrome will be activated.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2020/05/25/faulty-covid-19-tests-why-prisoners-love-their-jailers-and-never-ending-lockdowns/
- This sense of safety will be temporary and a delusion.
- People will begin to wake up to see that their space of safety will be nothing but a holding prison as they await their destined deaths due to the vaccines and their many mechanisms of injury, including ADE.
These dear readers are the fate that awaits us if we do not stop this complex brew of different kinds of Covid madness. In the Philippine context, we are attempting to stop this juggernaut. I wrote a guidebook as one attempt to stop these lockdowns.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/05/25/nicanor-perlas-guidebook-to-end-lockdowns-now-an-executive-summary/
Our Healthy Immune System to the Defense
While we are dealing with external measures to stop the illegal lockdowns and the dangerous vaccines, we can also activate another way out of this madness of totalitarian control.
Let us renew, regenerate, nurture and utilize our amazing super-intelligent God-given immune system. Because of both censorship and over-reliance on vaccines, most decision-makers and scientists have, deliberately or not, set aside the power of our immune system to protect us from Covid-19 and its variants.
We need to understand the urgency of our times, as the enemies of humanity will throw on our way, more variants, false pandemics, and varied excuses for control. Ultimately our ultimate internal defense against this onslaught will be the proper understanding, care, and sophisticated activation of our natural immune system.
This is a huge topic in itself. Here is the essence of the confidence I have in our immune system. You can find the scientific support of what I will be saying on our website, https://covidcalltohumanity.org.
Many scientific studies are showing that our adaptive immune system has the capacity to evolve as the viruses themselves are mutating. This evolutionary capability resides in our cellular immunity, especially our B-cells and our T-cells. Both have the capacity to have a memory of a previous encounter with any virus. This results in the creation of memory B-cells and memory T-cells. Both also have reserve cells that enable both cells to mutate and evolve to keep up with the continuous production of variants of different viral diseases including Covid-19.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/07/08/your-immune-system-can-protect-you-from-covid-and-all-its-future-variants-anyone-who-says-otherwise-is-lying/; … Continue reading
Just think of this. If we had encountered the original SARS virus, our B and T-cells still remember that encounter. So when SARS-CoV-2 came along, many people had immunity to SARS-CoV-2. This is known as cross-immunity. And this is responsible for the phenomenon of asymptomatics.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2020/08/17/new-study-found-pre-existing-sars-cov-2-immunity-in-general-population/; … Continue reading
It is interesting to note that the original SARS virus (SARS-CoV) and SARS-CoV-2 have a similarity in their genetic sequences of around 79.5-83.3%, depending on the criteria one uses. This is the result of a sophisticated scientific study entitled, “ Comparative analyses of SAR-CoV2 genomes from different geographical locations and other coronavirus family genomes reveals unique features potentially consequential to host-virus interaction and pathogenesis”.https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.21.001586v1 Here is the relevant quote from the research.
“From the variation analysis using Genome Detective Coronavirus Subtyping tool, it is found that SARS-CoV2 shares 79.5772 % nucleotide and 83.3672 % amino acid identity with SARS-CoV genome.”
So there is a difference of around 21% between the two viruses. Yet our immune system could still effectively respond to SARS-CoV-2 if it had previous encountered the original SARS virus close to 20 years ago. This is definitely long-term, durable immunity.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2020/08/17/new-study-found-pre-existing-sars-cov-2-immunity-in-general-population/
Now the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 has 15 to 17 mutations in its nucleotides.https://www.msn.com/en-in/news/newsindia/how-many-mutations-can-delta-variant-have-heres-what-government-says/ar-AALAeLs The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) defines mutations as changes in the sequence of the nucleotides.https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2775006 Now, if we compare this with the 29,811 nucleotideshttps://cen.acs.org/biological-chemistry/infectious-disease/know-novel-coronaviruss-29-proteins/98/web/2020/04 of the putative original SARS-CoV-2 from Wuhan, then we can say that the Delta variant is 99.94% similar to the original Covid-19 virus.
Put another way, the difference between SARS-CoV-2 and its variants is only around 0.057%.Forster, P et al. Phylogenetic network analysis of SARS-CoV-2 genomes. Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (USA). April 2020. This study places the nucleotide number of the original … Continue reading Therefore, if our immune system successfully fought off a genuine infection of the COVID-19 virus, it can easily fight off variants based on its capability of pattern recognition as articulated in References 31, 32 above and 34 below.
We must also understand the power of our killer T-cells. When all defenses fail (including from our antibodies and the B-cells themselves), our helper T-cells will mark the viral invader for an attack, and our killer T-cells will move in to destroy any human cell infected with the virus.How ‘killer’ T cells could boost COVID immunity in face of new variants. There are two kinds of T-cells: helper and killer. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-00367-7
Every time I look at the details of how our immune system works, I am in awe as to what it can do to protect us. And I am not the only one. In fact, some mainstream pro-vaccine scientists would rather have the broad enduring protection from natural immunity rather than narrow, limited, and short-term immunity given by vaccines if the latter work and there are no hazardous side effects.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/04/22/pro-vaccine-immunologist-i-would-probably-prefer-to-have-natural-immunity/
Supplement with Safe Treatment Protocols
We may have a weak or compromised immune system. While we are building up and strengthening our immune system, we can still protect ourselves from Covid-19. We can do this with safe preventive and early treatment protocols using hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin together with Vitamins C, A, and D3 plus micronutrients like Zinc and Selenium.https://covidcalltohumanity.org/2021/06/28/how-ivermectin-prevents-covid-19-and-possibly-protects-the-unvaccinated-from-toxic-spike-proteins-being-shed-by-the-vaccinated/; … Continue reading Of course, we also need to have a healthy diet (preferably organic), proper sun exposure, and proper sleep, among others.

The Gift of Covid-19: Challenge to be Fully Human
The world is in a terrible mess and humanity is in grave danger. It faces the greatest threat to its existence as of now. We can either surrender our humanity or we can use this challenge to emerge our full human potential.
In training for the Olympics, the coach usually allows his athletes to undertake PRT or progressive resistance training.The following account of PRT is based on personal experience. If someone wants to be a champion in the 100-meter dash, the coach will require that athlete to carry two dumbbells, weighing at least 3 kilos each, in both hands, and sprint up a 45-degree incline.
When the athlete has done this the required number of times, the coach tells the athlete to let go of the dumbbells and sprint on a flat surface. It is clear from this procedure that the athlete will experience himself almost flying to his 100-meter destination. The resistance provided by both the dumbbells and the 45-degree inclined plane has built up the strength of his muscles and stamina. Thus, when the resistance is removed, he literally soars. His feet hardly touch the ground.
One can see Covid as a kind of PRT for humanity. We did not wish it into existence. And we can wish it to go away. However, by struggling to defend our existence and our humanity as best as we can, we are birthing a new and higher version of ourselves. In the end, it is our inner attitude and decisiveness that will determine whether we can transform this greatest and very dangerous challenge to humanity into an incentive to be more fully human and wiser in the way we create our societal structures.
There is no way to go except to go forward and create a “new normal” very different from what these totalitarian would-be masters would want to have. It will be a new normal totally deserving of our full dignity as human beings with a deep spiritual core inside ourselves.
A short saying summarizes it all. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” What are we waiting for? Let’s go do it and uphold our humanity!
