If you want to import a plant or an animal from abroad,you are most of the time not allowed to – and take note of the reason why: because the government wants to ensure that the agricultural industry is kept free from pests and diseases (source, source and source).
This makes sense, naturally: plants and animals from other parts of the world are carriers of pests and diseases that our plants and animals are not from nature equipped to deal with, and that we in any case don’t want here.
The introduction of new plant or animal species is always very risky, and commonly cause huge problems to the native plants and animals. I am sure we all know the ‘horror story’ about Australia and the introduction of rabbits and foxes there – and the consequences for the native animals. So we are probably all happy that we have a good system in place, intended to protect our flora and fauna – and our agricultural industry.
But are we – the people living here – offered the same degree of protection?
They protect us from harm by forcing us to wear a seat belt if we drive a car (but not a bus…!?) even if we are so obese that we can not fit into a car seat belt without a seat belt extension, so why would they not protect us from e. g. Ebola? Right?
Many here in our ‘civilised’ part of the world assume that we are safe, because we have such a modern health care system and such effective systems to identify and deal with contagious diseases. I mean; if we go to such lengths to protect our native flora and fauna, and the agricultural industry as well, we can assume that the same level of protection is in place for us native human beings too, right?
Well… when a man in the ‘advanced’ USA, just after returning from a stay in the Ebola-ridden Liberia (source), became sick and went to a doctor the 26th of September, they did not isolate him immediately. He was instead told to go home, because they failed to identify the cause of his illness (Ebola), and was only isolated in a hospital two days later – exposing all those he had contact with in the meanwhile for the virus (source).
They stop plants and pet animals in the customs, because they might have some disease or bring some pests, but people arriving from Ebola-ridden countries are free to enter just like that? Not even a quarantine? And note that Ebola is just one of many such threats to our populations (source).
We live in a global village now, whether we like it or not, and the truth is that diseases that in the past would exterminate whole villages, still can do just that: exterminate the whole global village…
Living, walking and learning together? (And dying together….)
The global village will survive for some time, sure. Their total failure is not just around the next corner; their fall is long and painful. Ebola will tear on their concept, just like HIV/AIDS did, and so will the ‘fruits’ of ‘multiculturalism’, ‘feminism’, ‘capitalism’, ‘socialism’ and all their other fallacies do too. Eventually the weight of all these curses will be too much for their system to carry, and combined they will spell the doom of the global village – a concept we know well they refuse to abandon, no matter the cost (source, source and source). All those who cling to their global concept will fall with it. All those who refuse to change, and their children too, will die – a horrible, painful and humiliating death.
Only those who escape the village will survive; run to the hills, hide in the forest, build your castle in the mountains, fortify your island – and isolate yourself from the global village as best you can, as soon as you can, in good time before it is too late. The sooner you start, to plan, to prepare, and to actually do this, the more likely you are to survive. Become as self-sufficient as you can, and only become dependent on and accustomed to what you know you can build, maintain, repair and keep going without any help from the global village.
