COVID-19 is a weapon to fundamentally transform America, says Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons
TUCSON, Arizona., June 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – In addition to causing a lot of illness and death, the SARS-CoV-2 virus along with its COVID-19 disease has been a major ally of those seeking to impose a radical collectivist ideology and expand their control over our lives at all costs, writes Marilyn Singleton, MD, JD., in the summer issue of Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. Dr Singleton, anesthesiologist, is a past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS).
“What many Americans were led to believe was a well-meaning concern for our safety and our health has turned into a quagmire of ever-changing rules designed not for our health, but to get us used to government control. on our lives, ”she wrote.
The pandemic is the acute crisis superimposed on decades of ideological subversion and chronic societal turmoil. Racism is the chronic, festering wound that undermines our society’s immune system, she explains, “the burning question of choice for placing all societal fronts – interpersonal relationships, education and medicine – in a constant state of turmoil. “.
COVID-19 has disproportionately affected the black American population. The reason is probably multifactorial, but rational analysis is impossible because critical race theory has replaced critical thinking, writes Dr Singleton. There is a mathematical model claiming to show that redistribution of wealth and reparations to descendants of slaves would have reduced deaths from COVID-19, rather than attention to risk factors such as obesity, hypertension and vitamin D deficiency.
Among the societal problems, Dr Singleton lists:
- Demoralization through academic and media manipulation, when the facts no longer matter;
- Destabilization in particular of the country’s economy, forcing the government to become more intrusive in our lives by distributing financial benefits; and
- Crises that allow the government to circumvent the Constitution and change the government’s checks and balances.
Psychological tools to aid transformation include isolation, enforcing compliance with trivial demands, and degradation through a “culture of cancellation,” she writes.
Authoritarianism, the suppression of dissent and the tyranny of experts are becoming the new normal.
Dr Singleton concludes with a warning from Frederick Douglass: “Power grants nothing without a demand … Find out what everyone will quietly submit to and you will have the exact measure of the injustice and harm that will be imposed on them.”
