2020 – A Year when Distancing became Social
A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely
the absence of disease or infirmity.
Definition of Health,
Preamble of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Constitution, 1948
These days, many argue that our Covid (C-19) response is a planetary fiasco,
whose size is yet to surface with its mounting disproportionate and enduring
secondary effects, causing tremendous socio-economic, political and
psychosomatic contractions and convulsions. But, worse than our response is
our silence about it.
It is an established fact that the quintessence of Nazism was not Hitler and
the circle of darkness around him. It was rather a commonly shared ‘banality
of crime’ atmosphere: Benevolent acceptance of ordinary village people
living next to Auschwitz, Mauthausen, Dachau that the nation must be
‘purified’ … The day when questioning stops and silent acceptance becomes a
‘new normal’ is a day when fascism walks in a big time. Of course, today we
have a diagnosis for it: Manufacturing consent through choice architecture,
of a fear-imprisoned, via media infantilised (returned to the pre-Oedipal
phase) psychology of the de-socialised and alienated, an atomised one.
Appinion disguised as opinion
Did we really forget basic teaching of our history: Every time when the
power was unchecked, it degenerated into the obscure brutality; ritualising
its force with a stamp on or under our skin to visualise and immortalise the
twilight of reason?
C-19 response illustrates – the argument goes – nothing else but a social
pathology: the non-transparent concentration of power, and our overall
democracy recession – further bolstering surveillance and social control
systems. All that as lasting consequences of cutbacks, environmental
holocaust, privatisation (or PPP-ization) of key intergovernmental and vital
national institutions, ill-aimed globalisation as well as of the fixation on
overly allopathic, mandated (not repurposed but usually novel and expensive)
drugs-centred healthcare, and lack of public data commons. Pandemic or plundermic …
Trust in and support to governmental and intergovernmental institutions is
rapidly deteriorating. Ever larger number of citizens do not see the
mainstream media (or pop culture celebrities) at service for population.
Dialogue and opinionation is rarefied and discouraged, if not even
sanctioned. Hence, the faith in western medicine is in a free fall.
Compromised generational contract and thinning social consensus are
challenging our fabrics like never before in recorded history. The first
real stress-test since the end of the WWII, the United Nations (UN) clearly
didn’t pass. Many feel deeply disappointed with and disfranchised by the
universal organisation and its Agencies for its lasting
Is our cohesion irreversibly destroyed?
Early lockdowns, mid-March 2020, were justified by a need to flatten the
curve of the ‘sudden’ virus’ (harmfulness, mortality and
transmissibility) impact, since there were no enough hospital beds.
In the meantime, the lockdowns were extended and widened, curves not
arguably altered. Still, for the past 9 months, there is hardly any new
hospital built in the EU although the non-essential medical services are by
and far suspended. Neither there was or is any massive investment into
general health prevention. The only visible infrastructure growth is in 5/6G
Following a simple ratio that the one’s level of health is genetic
expression of life-style choices made, it is no surprise that there are
also growing speculations if the lockdown – as the most notorious expression
of monofocal perspective and rejection to any
scientifically contested, debate-based integrated judgment – is invasion
- Whether the aim is a herd-immunity or herd loyalty (and to it related
growing, yet still unrefuted, rumours that the eventual ‘unsafe,
unneeded and ineffective’ C-19 vaccine (or genoccine) might
contain biohacking nano-properties which establish backdoor interface
via extensively set 5/6G, besides viral interference and transduction as
standard side-effects in the clinical trials ever since 2002)?
And, if is there any back-to-normal exit from the crisis, or this
disaster ‘turned into planetary terror, through global coup d'état’
will be exploited to further something already pre-designed (with a
fear, not as a side-effect, but rather as a tool manufactured to gain
control). Simply, is all that more related to the biotronics and
demographics – ‘epsteinisation en masse’, than to health and economics
or any common social purpose?
E.g. Le Monde Diplomatique – while examining the possible merge
between tech oligopoly and political monopoly – claims: “Political decisions
have been central in shaping this tragedy — from the destruction of animal
habitats, to the asymmetric funding of medical research, to the management
of the crisis itself. They will also determine the world into which we
emerge after the worst is over.” Over the past 30 years, every critical
juncture had a similar epilogue: pardon and enhancement for the capital, a
burden and suppression for the labour. The C-19 is no exception to it: Ever
since early lockdowns of March 2020, the capital flows unhindered while the
labour, ideas and humans are under the house arrest.
The XXI century frontline is the right to health (incl. body integrity and
informed consent) and labour, privacy and other fundamental human rights and
liberties. (LMD, IV20)
Earth provides enough to satisfy everyone's needs, but not for a single
Still to be precise, the WHO- decreed virus pandemic brought nothing truly
new to the already overheated conduct and increasingly binarized world
affairs: It only amplified and accelerated what was present for quite some
time – a rift between alienated power centres, each on its side of Pacific,
and the rest. No wonder that the work on the C-19 vaccine is more an arms
race than it is a collaborative humanistics.
Would all this be – in its epilogue – about the expansion of
techno-totalitarian model of government as an alternative to liberal
democracy? Devolutionary singularisation into techno-feudalism as the
highest stage of capitalism? Is now a time to return to the
nation-state, a great moment for all dictators-in-waiting to finally build a
cult of personality? Hence, will our democracy be electro-magnetised and
vaccinated for a greater good (or greedier ‘god’)?
Will we be (ever) allowed to exit this year?
is certain, confronting the long-term interests of stakeholders with the
short-term interests of shareholders, the private sector from both sides of
Atlantic exercises disproportionate power in the technological share
(infrastructure and data). It also largely benefits from the massive public
research funds while in return paying dismal, negotiable tax if at all.
too often it comes with the nondisclosure agreements, liability
outsourcing/protections and other unilaterally beneficial legal instruments
as well as with the close ties between the private sector, intelligence
agencies and media.
same applies to a big Pharma which increasingly dictates a non-preventive,
monofocal approach to medicine and research, and controls reporting about it
– not always in the name of our public health.
Therefore, the above represents the largest underreported threat to our
democracy and future societal conduct.
Conclusively, bioinformatics is a dual-use technology. Past its formative
age, it has today a huge weaponization potential for at home and abroad.
Consequently and urgently, this necessitates a comprehensive legislation
which builds up on the Universal Charter of Human Rights and Nuremberg Code,
and rests on its effective enforcement (with the monitoring of compliance
mechanisms as set for the IAEA, OPCW, RC-BTWC and the Nagoya protocol),
nationally and internationality.
Pop Europe, back to its Future
By many accounts, 2020 – a year when distancing became social–
will be remem- bered as the worst year in living memory (since 1939). Some
would say; C-19 stopped history, as it locked down our dialogues. Actually,
2020 only quarantined and halted us, while in fact it accelerated history.
This especially refers to the Old Continent.
As this author noted in spring 2020: “It is amply clear from the C-19 event
that the right to health is an issue for all. The search for a reliable cure
for pandemics control is not a matter of private business, but of
fundamental individual rights situated on higher levels of
embedded in the UN and EU Charters, and being obligatory for each of the UN
Specialized Agencies or EU bodies to comply with. (Not a fear based
manufactured consent, but the right for informed consent as an inseparable
segment of the constitutionally endorsed right to health.)
Even if the vaccine becomes the agreed or preferred option, it must be made
available patent-free for all, and locally manufactured. However,
binarization of debate onto a pro-and-con vaccine represents a
dangerous reductionism and waste of planetary energy critically needed for a
holistic and novel approach. There is no silver bullet for the European
problems. Consequently, there is no solution in one-directional medical
research in response to any pandemic, and in a single-blended (or centrally
manufactured, hastily introduced) and mandated medication for all. This
especially refers to the genoccidne.
(Dogma is based on a blind belief; science necessitates constant
multidimensional exploration. Science, especially a medical one, holds no
single or absolute truth: The closest it can get is to the least wrong
answer – which must be contested constantly, literally every day.)
Proportionality of our (current and future) responses in Europe is another
key issue. Hence, what presents itself as an imperative is the universal
participation through intergovernmental mechanisms. That rule applies for at
home and for abroad, as the Union has to comply with (and set example to) it
urgently – since biology and geopolitics have one rule in common; comply or
Growing particularisms in Brussels quarters, where (on taxpayers money and
public trust) it is more and more the particular – be it individual,
regional, national, lobby-groups driven – interest that prevails over the
solid all-European project of our common presence and future.” 
Past the Brexit, the EU has to be extra cautious about its chronic
democracy-deficit, apparatchik alienation of Brussels, as well as the
brewing concerns that the EU without UK becomes yet another greater Germany.

His 8th book, ‘No Asian Century’ is scheduled for winter 2020-21.
The UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres is well aware of it:
Addressing the Organisation’s General Assembly at the 75th
anniversary (September 2020) he admitted: “… people continue to lose
trust in political establishments. … widespread protests against
inequality, discrimination, corruption and lack of opportunities all
over the world – grievances that still need to be addressed,
including with a renewed social contract.”
Even in the neutral and peace-loving Austria – following the
provisions of a strict autumn 2020 lockdown – only the basic
supplies shops are opened. However, besides the grocery stores and
pharmacies, it also includes the guns shops, while the schools,
theatres and museums remain closed.
“The pandemic has also reviled how imbalanced the relationship
between the public and the private sector has become. In the US, the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) invests some$40 billion a year
on medical research and has been a key funder of the R&D of C-19
treatments and vaccines. But pharmaceutical companies are under no
obligation to make the final product affordable to Americans, whose
tax money is subsidising them in the first place. … It was a typical
move for Big Pharma. … Even so, US drug prices are the highest in
the world. Pharmaceutical companies also act against the public
interest by abusing the patient process. … Equally bad deals have
been made with Big Tech. In many ways, Silicon Valley is a product
of the US government’s investments in the development of high-risk
technologies. The National Science Foundation funded the research
behind the search algorithm that made Google famous. The US Navy did
the same for the GPS technology that Uber depends on. And the
Defence Advanced Research Project Agency, part of the Pentagon,
backed the development of the Internet, touchscreen technology,
Siri, and every other key component in the iPhone. Taxpayers took
risks when they invested in these technologies, yet most of the
technology companies that have benefited failed to pay their fair
share of taxes. Then they have the audacity to fight against
regulations that would protect the privacy rights of the public. …
the power of AI and other technologies being developed in Silicon
Valley, a closer look shows that in these cases, too, it was
high-risk public investment that laid the foundations” – states

See, eg. the EU Pandemic Accelerator Act (April 2020) or the July 15th
2020 Suspension of the EU GMO-related legislation (the so-called EU
Council adoption of the Commission’s proposal to accelerate clinical
trials and the supply of medical product containing the GMOs) – all
promulgated speed-track without a prior investigative scientific
reports, hearings or debate. These are now submitted to the European
Court of Justice for a legality and impartiality judgment. In the
same fashion the recently adopted European Democracy Action Plan
(EDAP) leaves many ambiguities, while also contradicting the
European Convention on Human Rights.

On December 18th 2020, the UN General Assembly (UNGA)
adopted Resolution against glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that
encourage modern forms of racism and xenophobia. 60 UN members
co-sponsored resolution, while only 2 states casted negative vote.
Rather strikingly and disturbingly, Germany refrained from voting in
favour (abstained). The UN GA recommends states "to take appropriate
concrete measures, including legislative and educational ones, in
accordance with international human rights obligations, in order to
prevent revisionism in respect of the Second World War and the
denial of the crimes against humanity and war crimes committed
during the WWII."
