The Ebola Effect: Blood From Stone

The U.S. Government wants Ebola in America.   Why?  It’s good for business, specifically the business of the global elites.  It’s no secret the one-percent who rule the world want the global population reduced. It’s also no secret big pharma makes big money off pandemics.  And apparently Big Academia can make money too.  How convenient Dallas Patient Zero wound up in Texas where Texas A & M says it can serve as a potential mass-production center for ZMapp Ebola Drug.  And big government can use Ebola as a ripe excuse to start using those FEMA camps.  And the U.S. Government can use Ebola as a convenient excuse to invade Africa under the long-used guise of a humanitarian mission.  It’s a win-win for global elites and the U.S. government and lose-lose for the rest of us, the [amazon asin=0990463109&template=*lrc ad (left)]mundanes put at risk of death.  Rahm Emanuel must be a soothsayer as he once said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

The U.S. Government cares about the health and well-being of our military about as much as it cares for the health and well-being of Africans (which is not much) so it’s is sending 3,000 American military personnel to West Africa into harm’s way to help deal with the outbreak.  Then again maybe the U.S. Government is obligated to help clean up a mess it may have caused if you put stock in reports of[amazon asin=1439202648&template=*lrc ad (right)] black ops carried out by the American government in Africa.  This very well might be a false flag incident either going exactly as planned or going awry.

As early as July of this year, some politicians were calling for travel restrictions.  As if government were the answer.  And already others are throwing libertarians under the bus calling us unfeeling, unloving, unthinking dangers to ourselves and others for sticking to our principles and realizing that this crisis like all other crises is no reason to put faith in government even though some would like us [amazon asin=B0049S9HJO&template=*lrc ad (left)]to just that.  Others are using Ebola as an excuse to claim libertarians are wrong on immigration too.  Ebola is the new “racism.”  Mark my words; it will now be used as a verbal bludgeoning tool to get people to go along with whatever government says is good for them.  Fear shuts down free thinking almost as fast as a lethal blow to the cranium.

So how should libertarians respond to Ebola?  The same way we respond to any crisis, voluntarily, with level-headed common sense.  Protect yourself and your family.  Don’t expect government to protect you from anything.  In fact, government will likely put you at [amazon asin=B002UFLQ60&template=*lrc ad (right)]more risk.  And for all the talk about a lack of free-market solutions to Ebola, let me remind you of the myriad of products available to us as a result of the market.

And one can argue the delays caused by the FDA when it comes to allowing new drugs onto the market combined with the FDA’s green lightening of drugs it knows cause serious health issues are further proof of the foolishness of looking to government for an Ebola panacea.

Bob Murphy’s How The Free Market Would Handle Quarantines from 2007 lays out the case for how liberty is best for what ails us.  Don’t be taken in by fear or by those wishing to exploit Ebola for their own political ends, be vigilant, be voluntary, be healthy, be prepared, but be free.
