We are living in strange times.
A novel virus has swept the world, initially unknown in its virulence and pathogenicity. It is now endemic, exhibiting seasonality, and recognized to have an infection fatality rate of approximately 0.15%1.
What is abundantly clear is that this virus does not affect everyone equally. People with specific preexisting health conditions are disproportionately affected. There is an enormous risk gradient in severity of COVID-19 infection between the most vulnerable and the least vulnerable.
The Unspoken Metabolic Susceptibility Factors
SARS-COV-2 overwhelmingly and disproportionately affects the obese2, Vitamin D deficient34 and those with metabolic dysfunction56 i.e. insulin resistance, Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, fatty liver and the constellation of lifestyle diseases attendant of the metabolic syndrome.
A number of physiological reasons underlie this susceptibility, most notably impaired immune system function and a smouldering fire of metabolic inflammation. Such a state of chronic, low level immune activation appears to predispose to an inflammatory cascade known as a cytokine storm7, which results in severe lung damage often necessitating hospitalization, supplemental oxygen and eventually ventilatory support.
Don’t believe me? Just ask any critical care nurse or doctor about the body mass index, metabolic health status and body fat distribution of their patients who are intubated, on non-invasive ventilation or on high-flow oxygen.
For the elderly, COVID-19 poses a particular risk. Older people have had more time to accumulate metabolic dysfunction and micronutrient deficiency. They also have less physiological reserve to deal with the stress of infection.
For children and young people, who are much more likely to be metabolically healthy, SARS-COV-2 is of minimal concern. Risk of hospitalization and death is so low as to be a neglible8. Unless they have preexisting disease or metabolic dysfunction.
Appreciation of this nuanced, but critical point, could have lead to a targeted public health response that accepted the endemicity of the virus while protecting high risk groups and allowing the rest of society to continue with minimal disruption.
Instead, we have collectively been subjected two years of draconian and coercive public health policies that implicitly presuppose that each individual, regardless of age or metabolic health, is at equal risk. This strategic omission of fact, and ignorance of scientific reality, has formed the basis for an insidious and seemingly coordinated re-shaping of society by governments around the world.
A Commonwealth of Bio-Security Police States
The U.S. States of California and New York, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, as well as Israel, France, Italy, Austria and Germany have used the virus as justification to implement coercive and authoritarian policies of social control.
They have transformed themselves into Bio-Security Police States.
The Bio-Security Police State is characterized by repeated and ever more egregious infringements upon civil liberties and individual freedom in the name of ‘Public Health’, including:
Suspension of democratic processes and legislation of emergency police powers under the justification of a ‘State of Emergency’.
Coercive and restrictive non-pharmacological interventions (NPIs) including population lockdowns.
Heavy-handed police enforcement of Public Health orders such as arrest for failure to wear masks, being further than an arbitrary distance from one’s home and participating in ‘unauthorized’ protests.
Restrictions on citizens’ domestic movement, and in some cases, restrictions on outbound international travel.
Ubiquitous QR-code check-ins and other methods of non-consensual mass data collection for the purpose of contact tracing.
Mass vaccination, either through mandate or industry coercion.
Vaccine ‘passports’ that restrict societal participation of the unvaccinated, or ‘incompletely’ vaccinated from society.
Quarantine camps for forced interment of COVID positive people, and in some instances, asymptomatic close contacts of COVID cases.
Authoritarianism was a Choice
You may have been led to believe that such measures were and continue to be essential. You’d be wrong. In Sweden, normal life continues without mask mandates, lockdowns or other onerous non-pharmacological interventions. Sweden responded to SARS-COV-2 in a way that demonstrated freedom is not incompatible with an appropriate public health response.
Regression into Medical Authoritarianism
The Nations of the West have chosen to exhibit blatant disregard for sacred principles upon which the Western liberal democracy was built.
Principles that have emerged through centuries of hard-won battles against tyranny and oppression.
Principles that protect the fundamental, inalienable, Natural Rights of the individual.
Principles that formerly separated Western liberal democracies from military dictatorships, communist dictatorships and other forms of authoritarian states.
Principles that are now being discarded, suspended, torn up and ignored in the name of ‘Public Health’, ‘Science’ and ‘Safety’.
Dissecting the Anatomy of the Bio-Security Police State
In this five part series, we dissect the Anatomy of the Bio-Security Police State to help you understand what has happened to your country since the rise of SARS-COV-2, why you should be concerned and what is likely to happen if we as a society continue on the current trajectory.
To be informed is to be empowered.
