The Spirit that Constantly Negates
All major public policy issues today are driven by the same reckless, destructive, and mendacious apparatus.
By JOHN LEAKE
On a trip to Washington D.C. last fall, I posted a late night musing on the character of Mephistopheles in Goethe’s Faust, who introduces himself as follows:
I am the spirit that constantly negates!
And rightly so; for everything that comes into being,
Deserves to perish;
It would be better if nothing came into being.
Everything that you call sin,
Destruction, and evil,
Is my true element.
In recent weeks I have felt compelled to write more about general spiritual, ethical, and political matters instead of remaining focused on the COVID-19 pandemic response, which is the subject of the book I coauthored with Dr. McCullough and the original subject matter of this Substack.
A few commentators have responded with the commonplace exhortation, “Stay in your lane”—that is, to remain strictly focused on the pandemic response and the fraudulent COVID-19 vaccines, and refrain from indulging in political reflections.
While I appreciate the value of focus, such a focus ignores the glaring fact that the pandemic response was heavily politicized. Indeed, the evidence strongly supports the conclusion that the pandemic response was far more about entrenched financial and political interests than it was about science and medicine. The pandemic response was driven by the same reckless, destructive, boundlessly greedy, and mendacious oligarchy that is driving every other major public policy issue.
In short, the United States government has been captured by financial, military, and Bio-Pharmaceutical interests that do NOT represent the interests of the majority of American people. The same propaganda machine that brainwashed the public about COVID-19 has brainwashed the public about pretty much everything else.
The clearest evidence of this is that with every CRISIS and CONFLICT with which we are beset, our federal apparatus generates tens of billions of dollars out of thin air and transfers it to the oligarchic interests (and their lobbyists) who have set up their shops in Washington.
