“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.”
― Voltaire, The Age of Louis XIV
In 2008, Ben Stein released a documentary film, Expelled, No Intelligence Allowed, that addressed the absolute intolerance within academia and the media for even a mention of “intelligent design” as opposed to unguided evolution with regard to the origin of life. The editor of a scientific journal connected to the Smithsonian lost his job for publishing an article by Steven C. Meyer that referenced intelligent design. Journalists who addressed the issue have been fired and professors have lost their jobs if they admitted to considering it a viable theory. As one might expect, the Wikipedia page on the film mocks it as propaganda. Say the words “intelligent design” and the Darwinian cult hears “creationist.”
If this sounds familiar, consider the parallel with the lab leak theory of the origin of Covid. The entire country, and most especially virologists, epidemiologists, and doctors, have endured what proponents of the intelligent design theory within academia have experienced for decades. From the outset of the release of Covid upon the world, any voices that opposed the Faustian Faucian narrative were vilified, censored, their careers threated just as those scientists or journalists who uttered the words intelligent design.
Schools must close, masks must be worn, people must “social distance” from one another, vaccines must be mandated. None of those things, it turns out, were necessary. Nor were any of them based on any science, not even the vaccines. They all parallel a plan laid out in Event 201, a World Economic Forum exercise that took place in October 2019.
Curious timing? Indeed. Especially considering the participants; Bill Gates for example, has long sought ways and means to reduce the planet’s population. The WEF’s Klaus Schwab’s right-hand man, Yuval Noah Harari, is this generation’s Margaret Sanger; he hopes to rid the world of “useless eaters.”
