In many parts of the world, we are seeing how critical voices are often silenced, if they speak out against the official narrative. Big Tech seems to go hand in hand with government agencies, in these cases. Also highly qualified people are affected. Often the silencing is underreported. A recent example is that Twitter has suspended virologist Robert Malone. One of the few large news outlets to report about this is RT.
Two days ago, Danish Radio published information about secret experiments conducted on Danish orphans (link to content in Danish). The experiments were conducted decades ago and were backed by the CIA. There was no proper informed consent. The children were not told what research they were involved in, not even after the experiment ended. Jacob Knage Rasmussen says:
It is particularly problematic to have used placed children, as they are a vulnerable group in the custody of the state, who do not immediately have anyone speaking their case.
In Sweden, neighbour country to Denmark, this is so far (29 Dec. 2021) unreported by major media. Instead, reporting about Covid occupies so much of the news here these days.
In Sweden, we can see a very worrying development, where many people have lost confidence in police and judiciary. For example, some shop owners don’t bother to report crime to the police because it usually doesn’t lead anywhere and many journalists have low confidence in the judiciary (all links in this post are to Swedish content). We have also seen how police and judiciary have mishandled cases like Palme and Assange so badly that the authorities are seen as not doing their job properly or are even suspected to be acting in a criminal way. Read also the articles “Palmeutpekande får svidande kritik av JO” and “Ett mordiskt system skapas inför våra ögon”.
While we are in many places of the world now seeing massive disrespect for human rights, loss of democracy, widespread propaganda and preparations for war, there are also scary signs of a development towards devaluation of life. All these components remind us about what happened before WWII.
In Sweden, some have raised concerns over how elderly people are treated, in particular when they have Covid. Geriatrics professor Yngve Gustafson says (link to article in Swedish):
Routinely administering respiratory inhibitors to the elderly with lung infection is active euthanasia, to say the least
It makes you wonder how many have actually died of what might be called euthanasia (despite that active euthanasia is not allowed in Sweden) but have been reported as having died from or with Covid. The Swedish journalist Elisabet Höglund uses words like “killing” (“avlivning”) instead, when she describes this (link to blog post Swedish). It is also very unfortunate that the term “palliative care” is misused for this.
If anyone thinks that lack of resources is a valid excuse for not giving also older Covid patients real care, then remember that the external hospital built with assistance from the military in Stockholm 2020 was dismantled after not having treated a singe patient (link to content in Swedish).
There are also disturbing reports from the UK that patients with mental illness and learning disabilities, including children, were given “do not resuscitate” orders. In at least one case this appears to have led to the patient’s death.
Ecuador becomes the first country to mandate Covid vaccines for children from age of 5 (and also for adults). Other countries that require or will require vaccination for adults include Indonesia, Micronesia, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan and Austria.
- The United Nations says Indonesia must immediately drop charges and look into threats, intimidation and reprisals against human rights defender Veronica Koman and her family. Read more.
- Mandatory vaccination is particularly concerning given that Indonesia has a history of using coercive tactics for the sake of public health. Read more.
As Julian Assange spends another Christmas in prison, the perpetrators of many of the crimes he helped reveal still enjoy their impunity. The Assange case keeps reminding us about the ongoing extreme failure of justice, in a number of countries. The failure is causing serious damage to our society in general, because a well-functioning legal system is so important for society to become successful.
Read the blog post by Craig Murray about the countries that unsuccessfully tried to stop the UN General Assembly from adopting a resolution condemning Nazism. Note that in addition to the two countries voting against the resolution, 49 countries (including Sweden and Finland, where many influential people were pro-Nazi in the beginning of WWII) abstained in the vote.
Read the question from Hans Wallmark (in Swedish). However, he apparently forgot to mention the bazaar, which Accoun wrote about already in 2014.
Nils Funcke writes that for the past seven years, the Swedish government has, with some exceptions, dismantled the protection of our fundamental freedoms and rights. Read the chronicle (in Swedish).
