…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
There has been no global health scare for some time, at least I have not noticed. Has WHO (World Health Organisation) bureaucracy suddenly became incorruptible? Stranger things have happened, but expecting miracles in anything connected with United Nations would require faith exceeding that of Al Gore’s acolytes.
Big Pharma must be suffering, and surely nobody wants that. After lucrative swine flu, Asian flu, avian flu, Ebola and AIDS, some epidemic-like, not readily curable illness is needed to be demonised with a catching, frightening name, such as Russian flu or Trump plague. Or are the supplies of proprietary miracle medicines, with past or almost due past expiry date, not available? Governments has run out of ink for money printing presses? Unlikely. But don’t hold your breath; some pandemic, epidemic or a plague is coming to the government near you in order to transfer your money to WHO and assorted charlatans.
The attempt to appoint murderer Mugabe as its Good Will Ambassador was just sticking finger into eyes of the West and, more importantly, a test how cowardly it has became. Another, almost unnecessary, test is coming.
