BeeDee Drops Some Prescient Globalist French Banker Pandemic Bon Mots...,

LewRockwell |   History teaches us that humanity evolves significantly only when it is  really afraid: it   then first sets up defense mechanisms; sometimes intolerable (scapegoats and totalitarianisms); sometimes futile (distraction); sometimes effective (therapeutics, setting aside if necessary all the previous moral principles). Then, once the crisis is over, it transforms these mechanisms to make them compatible with individual freedom, and to include them in a democratic health policy.               

The beginning of the pandemic could trigger one of these structuring fears.    

If it is not more serious than the two previous  fears linked to a risk of pandemic (the  mad cow crisis of 2001 in Great Britain and  that of  avian flu of 2003 in China),  it   will first   have consequences. significant economic (fall in  air transport , fall   in tourism and the price of  oil   ); it   will cost about $ 2 million per infected person and will lower the stock markets by about  15%; its impact will be very brief ( China's growth rate only declined during   the second  quarter of 2003, to explode higher in the third); it will also have consequences in terms of organization (In 2003, very rigorous police measures were taken throughout Asia; the World Health Organization has set up global alert procedures; and certain countries, in particular France and Japan, have built up considerable reserves of drugs and masks).      

If it is a little more serious, which is   possible, since it is transmissible by  humans, it will have truly global consequences: economic  (the models suggest  to think  that this  could   lead to a loss  of 3 trillion dollars,  a 5% drop in global GDP) and  political  (  because of the risk of contagion, the   countries of the North will have an interest in ensuring that those in the South are not sick and   they will  have to ensure that the poorest have access to medicines today 'hui stored for only  the richest); a major pandemic will  then  arise,  better than any humanitarian or ecological discourse, the awareness of the need for altruism, at least self-interested.       

And,  even if, as  we can  obviously hope, this crisis is not  very  serious, we must not forget, as with the economic crisis, to learn the lessons, so that before the next inevitable one, we must not forget. set up prevention and control mechanisms and logistical processes for the equitable distribution of drugs and vaccines. For that, we will have to set up a global police force, a global storage and therefore a global tax system. We will then come, much faster than the sole economic reason would have allowed , to set up the bases of a real world government. It is also by the hospital that began in France in the 17th century the establishment of a real state.

In the meantime,    we  could at least hope for the implementation of a real   European policy on the subject.   But here again,  as on so many other subjects, Brussels is silent. Fist tap BeeDee
