Doug Casey on Global Government vs. the People


    by Doug Casey, International Man:

    International Man: During the Covid hysteria, almost every country had invasive entry or travel requirements associated with testing or vaccination status.

    Canada, Australia, and some EU countries rolled out a vaccine passport.

    What type of precedent did this set for international travel in the future?

    Doug Casey: The disastrous COVID “pandemic” itself was highly suspicious. In fact, that’s a gross understatement; it’s beyond suspicious. From the very beginning, the responses of the “authorities” were orchestrated.

    It appears to be a new type of flu. It’s often nasty but has always been greatly overrated—no worse than the Hong Kong flu, bird flu, Asian flu, swine flu, or many others. And not even remotely in the same league as the Spanish flu of 1918.

    However, COVID was promoted to generate widespread fear, panic actually, and that was an excuse for unprecedented controls. People have forgotten that the average age of death of COVID decedents is 80—which is about when people die anyway. They’ve forgotten that the death rate for younger people was trivial, similar to that for recurring annual flus.

    There was something unusually wicked going on here—in that most of the world’s governments got together and created a blackout surrounding the simple discussion of COVID and a blackout on the scientific investigation of cures. Worse, it was all done in the name of “the science.” Meanwhile, government bureaucrats and influencers worked to aggressively cancel all forms of discussion and actual scientific investigation regarding any aspects of the disease.

    Of course, health is a perfect focus for control because everybody wants to maximize their health. If governments try to impose control for political, economic, or ideological reasons, not everybody will buy into it. But a lot of people will go along if they’re convinced that if they don’t do it, they and their family are going to get sick and die. Health is actually the ideal wedge for control.

    And the bad guys are going to use it to the max.

    International Man: Recently, all G20 countries signed an agreement that calls for instituting vaccine passports.

    There was almost no coverage in the media.

    What is really going on here?

    Doug Casey: The idea was put forward at the G20, which is an informal club for officials from the 20 most powerful governments in the world. Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates were apparently special guests.

    You’d think that the United Nations, an expensive and highly dysfunctional debating society for junketing sociopaths, would be enough. But the world’s really powerful people prefer to consort only with each other. They don’t need some irrelevant bureaucrats from Equatorial Guinea, the Central African Republic, or the other 193 UN member countries sticking their noses into the meetings.

    You might think of the G20 as the semi-official operating arm of a de facto world government. Its nomenklatura are almost all members of the World Economic Forum, sharing the same philosophies and worldview. In essence, this G20 vaccine passport diktat means you’ll need not just a passport from your own national government but also one from some new bureaucracy that the G20 will set up.

    Perhaps it will only be required on commercial airlines at first and enforced by them, conveniently exempting private jet travel. It’s good to remember that passports hardly even existed before WW I. If you could afford passage, you could go anywhere in the world you wanted. I believe we’ll soon find that you need several layers of documents to go anywhere, starting in 2023. Freedom to travel is rapidly going into reverse—on top of the fact the number and frequency of international flights has dropped greatly.

    This is all a great leap forward for world government types. For many years various organizations and thought leaders have agitated for a world government, thinking that it would end wars and usher in the brotherhood of humanity. It’s a stupid and perverse notion, though. World government will simply move the problems of national government to a world level. Regrettably—at least for individualists and freedom lovers—there are no longer many places to hide from the kind of people who naturally get into government. They’re applauded by the mobs—err, democracies—as saviors.

    Vaccine passports will exert pretty complete control over your ability to move your body across borders. They’ll also make it easy for governments to control where you move within their borders or even what shops you go to. If you’re not properly vaccinated, you may be considered not just politically unreliable, but a physical danger.
