HOLD on, what did the old bald bloke say?
‘If I were reincarnated, I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population…’
Was he joking? Taken too much of the wacky bacy? Well, he went on to add this:
‘Human population growth is probably the single most serious long-term threat to survival. We’re in for a major disaster if it isn’t curbed. We have no option. If it isn’t controlled voluntarily, it will be controlled involuntarily by an increase in disease, starvation and war.’
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and part time (in his old public role) husband of Her Majesty wasn’t having a laugh when he spoke these appalling words in 1988.
Now fast forward to 2020 and the all-too-real threat of the coronavirus and those words ring alarm bells loud and clear.
You see, there’s always been one thing about Prince Philip. Like him or loathe him – and you wouldn’t need a recount on that one – he has always had a very disturbing habit of being too honest for his own good.
More skilled members of the elite – those who had to work to get to the top of society – would have used their intelligence and degrees in bullshit to phrase the same point rather more diplomatically.
But old Philip had a habit – until the media decided to ignore frequent gaffes and put them down to advancing age – of telling it how he thinks it is.
The apologists, of course, would claim Philip has always had an offbeat sense of humour and didn’t really mean what he wants to see you and me dead.
But that would be more convincing if there was no other elite material to complement his rant.
To the contrary, there is plenty. Everywhere we look we have been fed with the narrative that the world is fatally overpopulated.
If the weather and ‘global warning’ won’t destroy us, too many numbers in too small a space surely will.
The mission of organisations such as the Illuminati and Committee of 300 – yes, they both exist and are no figments of a conspiracy theorist’s imagination – includes plans to reduce the human population on the planet. And then there’s the Georgia Guidestones projecting a future human population of just 500 million.
So perhaps, with the current crisis only just beginning to unfold, it is high time we realised that we have been warned all along.
And how do you think they would go about it?
Now I think we can rule out Philip literally coming back as a deadly virus. However his words make the link between deliberate human actions and the causation of illness and death – and that may be significant.
Governments and the World Health Organisation are wasting no time cracking down on narratives that vary from the official version.
We’re told that the virus appears to have originated from a Wuhan seafood market where wild animals, including marmots, birds, rabbits, bats and snakes, are traded illegally.
Now as a journalist I always worked by the idea ‘dog bites man equals no story – man bites dog equals story’. But snake bites bat, sorry I’m going to take some convincing.
How can we trust those in power not to have had a human hand in what is happening now when we consider Philip’s menacing words?
