Who will save us from the WHO and its new world order?

Imagine control of all future responses to virus outbreaks – influenza, for instance – being dictated to the entire world by a cadre of unelected health bureaucrats in a distant country or continent? A repeat of the past two years every time there is a bad flu – but without a control group such as Sweden or Tanzania demonstrating a less harmful alternative? Welcome to COVID-19 Version ##, a future the World Health Organization (WHO) is aiming to realize through a process just agreed in Geneva with your governments. 

Most Western people had previously considered the WHO to be a benign, do-good group of people in Geneva dealing with the problems of ‘others’, somewhere where they are presumably needed. We had democracies that looked after ‘us’, governments chosen and held accountable by us, and we never needed the WHO. But it was comforting to know the WHO was there, for others.

The past two years should have changed that perception. The WHO is a primary architect of the unprecedented abrogation of basic societal rights and freedoms that we assumed were inviolable: to meet, greet, learn, work, and travel. It has also cheer-led an unprecedented redistribution of wealth from all of us, including the poorest that we had assumed the WHO was protecting, to the most wealthy, including its major private sponsors

Not to rest on its laurels, the WHO is negotiating a legally-binding treaty with our governments to entrench its ability to repeat this novel and devastating approach to pandemic management. This will potentially give individuals running the WHO the power to require closure of our workplaces and schools, restrict our healthcare, stop us travelling or meeting with friends and family, and mandate medical procedures- the power to control us. That this has passed almost unnoticed speaks volumes about the state of our societies, our media, our legal systems and the real dangers facing us.
