This is how the Hegelian Dialectic works.
A short two-minute video Bloomberg News uploaded to YouTube attempts to explain why the world doesn’t already have a widely available Ebola vaccine.
(Trusting the ingredients of such a thing and whether or not you would personally take it is another matter entirely, but hold on a second.)
What’s fascinating about this clip is what Dr. Ben Neuman, University of Reading, says towards the end.
Neuman explains that because viruses easily mutate, “It’s not just one drug we need for Ebola. We need a cocktail of drugs and perhaps a nice vaccine that could be used.”
Hm. Sounds like a Big Pharma hay day pay day, does it not?
But Dr. Ben also goes on to explain why the major pharmaceutical companies haven’t been all that eager to produce this cocktail of drugs and vaccines — which would surely translate to big bucks — just yet.
“These all take a lot of money and right now in the history of what we know at least, there have been fewer than 5,000 people who have been infected with Ebola. It sounds scary, but I don’t know that there’s enough…uh…panic or enough people who are potential customers for these drugs to warrant a company — a private company anyway — putting the money it would take to develop this.” [emphasis added]
Did you catch that? (Yeah, I know you did, that’s why I added the emphasis.)
Watch the video. The good doctor even struggles to find his words before he says he isn’t sure there is enough panic and customers to warrant developing a vaccine.
This is despite the fact that articles were coming out in scientific circles back in 2008 that Ebola vaccines had been successfully used in animal trials and even on one human patient, a lab worker who accidentally pricked her finger with an Ebola-laced syringe.
There’s not enough panic to go any further with it, though? Well, gee Ben, where can we get some panic from?
This video reveals two fundamental truths.
One: pharmaceuticals and vaccines really aren’t about saving lives…oh no, first and foremost, they’re about making money.
Two: there has to be enough panic to stir up potential customers to necessitate the creation of said pharmaceuticals and vaccines and there just simply was not enough Ebola panic to go around to make it worth it.
Well…there certainly is enough pricey panic now, isn’t there?
It’s a concerted effort. As I wrote earlier in an article questioning this sudden media zoo surrounding Ebola and why, in an unprecedented move, we’re suddenly shipping people infected with Ebola here for the first time ever, a lot of people in the military-medical-media industrial complex stand to make a lot of money off of this virus.
And, right on time, Reuters is reporting that they’re going to fast track a new Ebola vaccine and start testing on human patients as early as next month. Was that quick or what?
The Hegelian Dialectic is such a timeless strategy. Why? Because it works. So they just keep using it over and over and over.
Problem: not enough panic to make the big bucks off Ebola.
Reaction: create a panic to make the big bucks off Ebola.
Solution: problem solved.
It’s basically the same strategy they used to pawn off fast tracked, experimental H1N1 vaccines on people just a few years ago, only this time they’re playing with a much scarier virus to induce even more fear. In fact, next time you see a headline like, ‘Ebola fear going viral’ feel free to keep this in mind.
