Letters to the Paper Round 2

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Aideen Devine, Sunday, 11 Oct 2020, 09:39

Well I've a day off today and it’s been a busy few weeks so I’m just trying to get caught up with things and get the blog up to date. So, this is round 2 of letters to the local paper, this was the response to my letter, it added nothing to the debate, nothing on health figures or the efficacy of masks, lockdowns or otherwise to back up their case but here it is anyway.

Firstly I would like to paraise the author on her eloquence. It was a well written piece stating her points very clealy and I do agree with her when she describes the term ‘conspiracy theorist’ as lazy. It is a phrase too often trotted out to dismiss the views of a minority whose beliefs do not fit in with the mainstream narrative.

I do however have to question where Ms Devine is coming from in the rest of her well-crafted monologue. Basically she is laying the blame for all the current woes facing the world at the doorstep of Bill Gates.

Ms Devine states with such authority that what she says is the absolute truth – that one would be led to believe she has met Mr Gates. Not only has she met him but he has granted her access to his various investments and financial affairs. How else could she know such unchallengeable truths about his $1billion deals and his helping to draft legislation that would let pharmaceutical companies off the hook in the event of a coronavirus outbreak?

I’m guessing and I stand to be corrected here, that Ms Devine has not in fact had dinner with Bill Gates but that she has received her Masters Degree from the University of the Internet. A well-attended educations establishment it is too.

My question would be this: Why? What has Bill Gates got to gain from this pandemic? A quick Googles search tells me that he is already worth $114 billion so he’s hardly in it for the money.

The man will be 65 shortly – so unless he uses his billions to unearth the secret to eternal life, he has 30 years left , give or take. And what then? On his deathbed will he be surrounded by the rest of the supposed ghouls – Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Jacob Rothschild – rubbing his hands and cackling at how he brought the world to its knees? (BTW I made no mention at all of any of these people in my letter if anyone want's to go back and check, or a new world order)

I just don’t see it. But maybe that is the point MS Devine is trying to make.

I would also ask though, so what? So what if there is some New World Order out there and we are all being played like cheap fiddles? We only get a few decades on this earth and time passes quickly. When you’re gone the nefarious cabal will be someone else’s problem.

Step away from the computer. Drive to the beach. Meet a friend for a cuppa. Do something productive because siting worrying about Bill Gates and the unholy dealing you believe his is weaving from his dark castle is not good for your mental-well being.
