Tom Clancy and Our Secret Weapon in the Fight for Health Freedom
I think I know how we can win the fight for health and farming freedom, and the secret weapon involves asking Tom Clancy to write a book.
Bear with me for a moment.
Many people were struck by the fact that Clancy's 1994 book, Debt of Honor, described a terrorist attack involving a Boeing 747 crashing into the Capitol, which was believed to be the destination of Flight 93 in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
Conspiracy theorists preferred to point to the episode of the X-Files spinoff, The Lone Gunmen, which described a government conspiracy to crash an airplane into the World Trade Center by remote control six months before the famous attacks of 9/11. But unlike Tom Clancy, The Lone Gunmen never predicted the current conflict between Russia and Georgia.
Tom Clancy's 1999 video game, Ghost Recon, managed to predict the conflict nine years in advance. Consider the description of Ghost Recon from the product's web site:
Eastern Europe, 2008
The Wikipedia entry for Ghost Recon gives more details:
Ghost Recon begins in April 16, 2008, with civil unrest in Russia. Ultra-nationalists have seized power in Moscow, with plans to rebuild the Iron Curtain. Their first step is clandestine support of rebel factions in Georgia and the Baltic States.
According to ABC News, the following occurred on this date:
On April 16, 2008, then Russian president Vladimir Putin ordered his government to intensify ties with [secessionist movements in] Abkhazia and Ossetia. Tbilisi said the move amounted to a "creeping annexation" of its land by Moscow.
The Wikipedia article on Ghost Recon continues:
During the first few missions of the game, the Ghosts battle South Ossetian rebel forces from the north of Georgia, who are harassing the legitimate government and its allies. The Ghosts fight in the forests, on farms, and in villages while assisting their NATO allies in fighting the enemy. The Russian government complains to the United Nations that the Americans have interfered in their affairs, and eventually they send in their army to aid the South Ossetian rebels. The U.S. cannot hope to stop the Russian Army from invading Georgia, so the Ghosts slow down the invading forces so that their allies can evacuate. Eventually, the Ghosts are all that's left of the U.S. forces in Georgia, and they evacuate by SH-60 Seahawk helicopter on the rooftop of the American Embassy in T'bilisi, just barely avoiding the Russian forces. The Georgian government flees to Geneva and sets up a government-in-exile. With the fall of T'bilisi, Georgia surrenders and is forcefully incorporated into the [Russian Democratic Union].
Well this sounds eerily like what is happening. Russia has noted that Georgia has at least 127 United States military advisors in its defense ministry and hopes that rumors the US gave Georgia the green light to attack South Ossetia are not true:
Russian officials further claim that the US's role in the conflict is much deeper than is currently clear:
Georgian military forces launched a large-scale military offensive against South Ossetia on Thursday evening. Russia, in response, moved its forces to the region.
Just like Clancy's video game, in which he describes the US forces as ghosts:
Equipped with the latest battlefield technology, and trained in the latest techniques of covert warfare, they strike - swiftly, silently, and invisibly.
US aircraft are flying Georgian troops from Iraq to Georgia to fight against the Russians, according to General Petraeus.
Russia's attack is now spreading into Georgia proper.
Meanwhile, President Bush, the son of a CIA Director, and former President Putin, a former KGB agent, are vacationing together in Beijing. They are enjoying the Olympics, which started on the same day as the Russian invasion - August 8, 2008, or 8/8/08.
How Tom Clancy Can Save Us — And Bring Down the Anti-Cholesterol Empire
Now where am I going with this? Well, obviously one of the following is true about Tom Clancy:
The first option sounds like a conspiracy theory, so it can be rejected on the grounds that conspiracies obviously don't exist and people who believe in them are usually nuts.
The second option involves the paranormal, so it can be dismissed on the grounds that it does not fit into the framework of modern rationalism.
The third option sounds the most reasonable, but it seems too bizarre a coincidence that these sources would pinpoint the exact year, and maybe even exact dates, nine years in advance. Moreover, it would offer no hope for organic foods, free-range chicken, raw milk, nutritional supplements, or any of our other health freedom interests.
The fourth option is much more promising. It sounds paranormal on the surface, but can probably be reconciled to quantum physics. If, in fact, things occur in the future simply by virtue of their incorporation into Tom Clancy novels and video games in the present, we can, in fact, co-opt this phenomenon as a secret weapon in the fight for health freedom.
How? Simple. All we need is an organized movement to have Tom Clancy create a book or video game in which Codex Alimentarius, NAIS, the statin empire, and the low-fat reeducation campaign are all obliterated by a mass movement for justice, freedom, and TRUTH!!!
Well, what are you waiting for? Write Tom Clancy today!
