Interventionism: The Radical Move by World Leftists by Russell L. Blaylock, MD

In 1977, Ludwig von Mises wrote a brilliant discussion of interventionism, translated to English by Hans F. Sennhotz.[1] It was originally published in 1927 in German. It is a small book of 163 pages, but vitally important today as it discusses the centerpiece of the socialist world government being proposed by the radical left—including communists, Nazis, and especially the New Age crowd—namely, intervention by the state.

Basically, it goes back to the line I quoted previously in another article from a movie. In the movie, the leader of the ridged socialist government was told by a citizen that they wanted to make their own decisions. Her answer was, “When we let you make decisions, they are the wrong decisions.” This is the view of all socialist “planners” and that is what Ludwig von Mises’ book is about.

One of my favorite lines is when he writes, “We all plan, they wish to substitute their planning for ours.” In essence, he says society as it exists, especially among individuals, is not chaotic but rather individually planned. We also must be aware that, as contemporary history and ancient history teaches us, their evil or even psychopathic desires can and often do dominate their decisions and planning.

The impression they give the public, especially the young impressionable minds of today, is that the main defect with society is that it is unplanned and chaotic. In most cases, this is untrue, as Von Mises demonstrates in many ways. Take for instance, the vaccine mandates talked about a lot today. The impression given is that public health is so important that we must overlook personal interest and scientific concerns, by what they characterize as being based on “misinformation,” and rather blindly trust the authorities. In fact, a new term has appeared in a recent mandate proposed by the United Nations in an effort to stem dissent. It is referred to as “malinformation.” This Orwellian term means, information that is true, but which influences a rejection of government edicts, no matter how nefarious and corrupt. This true information is dangerous because it might make us lose faith in the planners.

This, in essence, is asking knowledgeable persons to adhere to a lie by the government and a series of cover-ups of the truth. That is, they are insisting, by law, that those who know better and insist on the truth should become accomplices or accessories to a crime being committed by the state or state-protected institutions. With over 20 million people being killed by this Covid “vaccine” that constitutes being an accessory to mass murder. We will see many more die over the long term. Already data from disability companies show that 2 billion people have been disabled by these “vaccines.”

In the case of the parents within a family or the individual, they may know what is best for their personal safety or their family’s health and safety. From experience or even reliable knowledge, should they reject the government bureaucracies’ recommendations, the independent critical thinkers are treated by a plethora of methods to shame and censor them. They are called “conspiracy theorists,” “enemies of science,” or shamed in other ways.[2-4] Many, especially even highly credentialed scientists and medical doctors, are removed from academic positions and hospital appointments, excluded from presenting their medical research at professional meetings, or have articles rejected by some of the best medical journals, regardless of the quality of the article. These dissenting scientists could even lose their medical license. Some of them have been paraded across the mainstream liberal media as spreaders of misinformation and accused of being responsible for killing people with their “lies.” The charge of “murdering people” is common, when the actual murderers know their own findings and with foreknowledge. Yet, it goes much further than the medical aspects. This control over decision-making extends to all previously private or independent decisions.[2] Rather, the elites (“the wise ones”) will make the planning decisions for the rest of us. In essence, we are made helpless before the state planners.

In talking to many people in position to know these things, most are extremely frightened, some are afraid for their lives. Most are afraid they will lose their position—and thus, their livelihood—and that their careers will be terminated. Some are just confused. As I told a group of men, we may be witnessing the end of Western civilization—the end of free speech.

In Nazi Germany, Hitler and his thugs designed a state based on American leftist eugenics principles. The ordering of the new German society was based on the removal of “useless eaters” (their term). This idea was not only that of Malthus in the 18th century but, more recently, it stemmed from Edward Alsworth Ross’s book—Standing Room Only? published in 1927.[5] The elite were impressed by Ross’s arguments for the elimination of the “undesirables —reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables.” The need to “cull the herd” was discussed recently, in detail, in a tremendous book by Edwin Black, War Against the Weak.[6] It was also the subject of a number of papers by tax-exempt foundations endorsing euthanasia.

As von Mises states on page 17 of his book, “The ideology that is swaying the world today is recommending the very system of economic policy that is rejected equally by classical liberalism and older Marxism.” It is here that the proponents of this centralized system (socialism) announce that this system of central planning represents progress and “the clock can never be turned back” to economic and personal liberty. The idea that the march toward “progress” is always forward and never backward, even if the previous system worked better than the “new” proposed system.

Unfortunately, most people believe in this bit of “wisdom” espoused by the intellectual morons in the world. I think the brilliant physicist Feynman phrased it this way for the secularists, stating, “Never confuse education with intelligence, you can have a PhD and still be an idiot.” Jesus, however, stated it best, “Thinking they are wise, they have become fools.” We now call them “intellectual morons.” Although most of von Mises’ book addresses economics, it also applies to many things, public health, medicine, culture, and law.

Additionally, it is my firm belief that the depopulation movement is firmly melded with eugenics. The greatest expenditure of monies among all Western governments is for the elderly, the chronically ill, welfare recipients, and those born with birth defects. In Nazi Germany, children did math problems in school calculating how many housing units for the healthy and young could be purchased with the money wasted on the care of that class of “useless” individuals. The first to be exterminated in Nazi Germany were the sick and malformed.[7]

Recently, Yuval Harari, sidekick “intellectual moron” for Klauss Schwab, stated that AI was creating a massive “useless class,” which would have to be kept happy with drugs and computer games. Maybe this explains the “zombie” addicts inhabiting the streets in many major cities and the drive for virtual reality goggles. Most addicts will die rather quickly among the vaccinated, and in a dystopic future, the rest could be euthanized.

With the freeing-up of this massive wealth, funds could be used to buy votes, and once a dictatorship of the elite is established and there are no more elections, the money could then be used for the military and population control (political police). This is also intimately linked to gun control, which is a move to confiscate guns and disarm the population so there would be no opposition.[8]

I would also predict that this rolling move to defund the local police is a move to create a national or even international police force, and the people will be drowned in so much crime they will demand it. This totalitarian and interventionalist world is coming and approaching very rapidly.

I end with Mark Twains’ great quote, “It is easier to fool the people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” We are trying to do the latter. It is also known among experts in brainwashing that once people have fallen for the propaganda, no amount of well credentialed information, data, charts, grafts, or personal testimony by whistleblowers will convince the masses that they have been fooled or are being fooled.

We are taught from our early education, over and over, that authorities are always right. The teacher is never to be questioned, the government is always correct, and the major bureaucracies must be obeyed. Few people resist this indoctrination and are critical thinkers. Even Dr. Pierre Kory, a specialist in the treatment of Covid, states in his book, The War on Ivermectin, that most doctors are cowards and only 10% are critical thinkers.[9]
