Back in 2018, Bill Gates declared that the world needs to prepare for pandemics just as seriously as it does for war. Pandemics occur when epidemics spread rapidly all over the world. War, on the other hand, is perpetrated by the ruling class.
Speaking at an event hosted by Massachusetts Medical Society and the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) on April 27, 2018, Gates said he believed “the world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.” He added, “This preparation includes staging simulations, war games, and preparedness exercises so that we can better understand how diseases will spread and how to deal with responses such as quarantine and communications to minimize panic,” Gates said.
Last October, Gates was involved in Event 201 when a then-imaginary and deadly virus spread around the globe killing 65 million people. The ruling classes were unable to stop it too. While the coronavirus is not yet considered a pandemic, if it continues to spread and kill people, it very well could reach that status.
“The Ebola epidemic in West Africa four years ago was another wake-up call, as the number of confirmed cases climbed, the death toll mounted, and local health systems collapsed. Again, the world was much too slow to respond,” he said of the 2014-2016 epidemic, which killed 11,000 and infected more than 28,000. Eleven people were treated for Ebola in the United States during that epidemic, according to the CDC. Gates also compared future deadly global pandemics to a new type of “military weapon.”
At the 2017 Munich Security Conference, Gates asked world leaders to “imagine that somewhere in the world a new weapon exists or could emerge that is capable of killing millions of people, bringing economies to a standstill, and casting nations into chaos. If it were a military weapon, the response would be to do everything possible to develop countermeasures,” he said at the NEJM event, adding that a “sense of urgency is lacking” when it comes to biologic threats.
This should concern everyone said Gates, “because history has taught us there will be another deadly global pandemic.
“We can’t predict when, but given the continual emergence of new pathogens, the increasing risk of a bioterror attack, and the ever-increasing connectedness of our world, there is a significant probability that a large and lethal modern-day pandemic will occur in our lifetime,” Gates said.
Gates is relying on the ruling class (our masters) to prepare and keep us safe. Gates said “world leaders” need to invest in approaches such as antiviral drugs and antibody therapies that can be stockpiled or rapidly manufactured to the spread of these future diseases. We think you should prepare on your own outside of what the rulers are doing. If we have learned anything from studying history, it’s that the ruling class cares only about the expansion of their own wealth and power and not the people they are enslaving.
