Not so long ago I was in a fancy restaurant in Malta and asked for some water, I was asked what kind and was shown a list! I chose a rather expensive bottle and was amused to find that it came from a village that I’d been visiting in the UK with the intention of buying a house. While I was looking around the village I noticed a spring of running water by the roadside and someone was filling containers with the free water from the spring. That was the very same water that the restaurant was selling for 3 euros a bottle. At the time I gave it little thought people selling something that you can get for free. Well if that isn’t good marketing what is? Water as it happens in one of the few things we need to survive along with the air we breath. Both are free (at the moment).
The power to convince people/manipulate or whatever you want to call it has been with us since the beginning of time, whether that be control of the masses or in this case finding an opportunity to just make money. Water will undoubtedly become more valuable than oil and in many places its already more expensive than a glass of the cheap house wine. So whats this all about.
The point is we used to be allowed to walk freely outside, breath in the air and enjoy our surroundings, but with this invention of “The virus” that’s been taken away from us. Religion! A Roman emperor once considered he needed a way to maintain order in his empire he came up with the new testament and picked (edited) the various parts he wanted to be published. The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls demonstrated that there were many contradictions that we choose to ignore. This I guess is an example of one man having too much power of the rest of us.
How does this translate to our current situation? Viruses are free, bacteria is free. When I was a kid I played in the dirt, I drank water from a tap (or faucet as they say in some parts of the world) we gained a natural immunity. Now we are being told of the dangers of even going outside (and at the present time that’s quite true). Go outside without the proper authority and precautions and you can be fined, arrested or even shot! The world has gone mad, but it all boils down to Public Relations (controlling what we think). This is for everyone to consider, do we chose freedom or whatever the alternative is?
This by no means negates the fact that this virus can kill us, we have the proof of that from the “statistics”, but when all of this ‘panic’ is over I for one want to see a better world, equality, freedom and happiness.
Peace and Love
