It has been called the Black Plague of the
Twentieth Century, A disease so widespread and virulent that it's victims
are counted in millions. AIDS has become one of the great fears of
our time, terrifying not only because of it's lethal and incurable nature'
but also because of the moral stigma that is attached to the disease.To be
diagnosed with AIDS is not only to be faced with a life destroying
ailment, but to be tarred with questions about your most private behaviour.
Many members of society tacitly (and not so tacitly) regard AIDS as a punishment
from above for "immorality".
The first appearance of AIDS is disputed,
but most authorities point towards it's rise in the late Seventies. At first
it was thought to be a viral disease limited to Homosexuals, with much media
attention focusing on the "bathhouse" lifestyles of urban gays. But as time
passed , AIDS began to show that it infected anyone , regardless of
sexual inclination. Researchers discovered it was transmitted
during the sharing of bodily fluids, (unprotected sex), through the
sharing of needles, and through infected blood transfusions. It could
also be passed from mother to unborn child in the womb and through breastfeeding.
No more was it a disease specific to the gay community-AIDS
threatende the world.
However is it possible that AIDS is more than
just another disease nature has thrown our way? Could AIDS be something darker
than that, something that man himself has created? As the disease continues
to baffle researchers, questions are raised that this calamitous virus, which
could potentially wipe out the entire human species, may have slipped out
of a man-made pandoras box.
THE STRANGE PART
The AIDS virus seems to affect some races more
than others, with a markedly higher infection rate among Latinos, Native
Americans, and Blacks. Death also comes more quickly to members of those
races once they are infected with AIDS which prompts some theorists to pose
the question of why a naturally-occuring virus would evolve so it could
differentiate between different human races.
THE USUAL SUSPECTS
The US Governement and Military
There are strong indications that AIDS may have
been a government chemical weapon that ran off the tracks of it's original
course- which was yo deal with over population.In 1969, at a house appropriations
hearing, the US Defence Department, through it's Biological Warfare
Department, pleaded for tax dollars to develop a disease with the capability
of attacking it's victim immune system while being resistant to the human
immune's system's attacks. The money was granted.
In the early Seventies, Henry Kissinger wrote
a National Security Memorandum in which he described the problem of
over population in the Third World and stated that the problem should be
a priority in the foriegn policy of the US. Indeed the over population problem
was considered a threat to the national security of the US. It's also
interesting to know that following World War 11 several ex-Nazis and
japanese germ warfare specialists were engaged by the US military.
The new disease it is rumoured was targeted at
homosexuals first because it was felt that people would'nt take it seriously
in the early stages, seeing it more as a marginalized gay problem ' than
a gay problem affecting everyone. How the disease was introduced into
the population is disputed, although a Hepatitis B vaccine issued to several
gay men in San Francisco and New York,in 1978 seems the likely launch mechanism.
In an attempt to destabilize Cuba , the CIA may
have tried to introduce African Swine Fever into the population. The
plan while successful backfired, with ASF returning to the States, mutating
to the disease we know as AIDS today.
Also suspected: a black ops genocide programme
aimed at blacks and homosexuals: the World Health Organization.
THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS
Pharmaceutical research companies
In an effort to keep much neede grant money rolling
in, pharmaceutical and research facilities have created the myth of
the AIDS crisis, lumping together several diseases under one umbrella in
order to instil a sense of panic.The use of drugs such as AZT and Interferon
in the treatment of AIDS is also suspicious. The drugs are expensive, and
there is a body of opinion that thinks the drugs do more harm than good.
Yet the sales of such drugs keep profit margines high and stockholders happy.
Pesticides The Third World has always been a dumping
ground for chemicals the rest of the world doesn't want, including extremely
toxic pesticides. One group of pesticides organophosphates is remarkably
lethal The symptoms this group of pesticides cause in humans
include those associated with Influenza- such as sweating headache and diarrhoea-
are disturbingly similar to those attributed to AIDS.
Worldwide pollution Another theory states
that AIDS is simply a mutated virus, the process of which has been aided
by modern technology. For a start the highest levels of chemical pollution
the planet hasever seen favour mutations, then jet travel help viruses to
move around the globe more rapidly than ever before. A virus in Durban South
Africa can easily meet with one in Chicago, Illonois in the space of a day.
This means that the rate at which new virus strains develop has been
Also suspected: improper handling of infected
test monkeys in laborartories: a natural cleansing plague created by nature
to handle overpopulation.
MOST CONVINCING EVIDENCE
In it's proposal to the House Appropriations hearing
in 1969, the Defence Department said it could have the new disease up and
running within five to ten years. The first incidents of AIDS were
reported in the late seventies, showing that if nothing else, the Defence
Department is punctual.
MOST MYSTERIOUS FACT
Of those who recieved the Hepatitis B vaccination
in New York in 1978, more than half were diagnosed with AIDS by 1984.
As anyone involved in cancer research will tell
you, there is more money to be made in treating the disease than in actually
curing it, even disease manufactured in a goverment lab. If AIDS is
ever cured rest assured a more lethal disease will appear on the horizon.
Perhaps it already has, we call it Ebola.
