Mephistopheles Flying Over Wittenberg,
to explain what
is going on in the world
always seem to
Over dinner tonight in Washington D.C., I fell into a discussion
with a little group of dissident doctors about what is going on in
the world, and we returned to the same questions we've been trying
to answer for the last three years.
why are safe old
ivermectin suppressed with
Among the true stories we
discussed was that of a chemistry professor who one day drew the
hydroxychloroquine molecule on the chalkboard.
A student reported
his "dangerous" action to school administrators, who sharply
rebuked him for it.
Another man beseeched
hospital doctors and administrators to give ivermectin to his
His request was
denied, but it prompted hospital security to search him every
day he visited to make sure he didn't try to smuggle ivermectin
to his mom.
Ivermectin - a
essential medication, once deemed a "wonder drug" for curing River
Blindness, whose discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in
Medicine - literally became anathema...
A pharmacist recently called a doctor three times in a row to make
sure the doctor was prescribing HCQ for rheumatoid arthritis,
and not for
It's likely the
pharmacist was hoping one of his calls would go to voicemail so that
he would have a pretense for delaying the prescription.

How to explain this confusing state of affairs?
For almost three years we
have investigated a range of individual human and institutional
actors who seem to be playing a prominent role.
We often talk about
the huge pharmaceutical companies and their friends in international
foundations such as the

These institutions, in turn, are dependent
on the vast apparatus of debt financing that is the lifeblood of all
At the same time, we have discussed the irrational and nonsensical
behavior we have observed on a mass scale among both state and
While fear has played an obvious role, it alone
cannot explain the bizarre and malevolent drama we have seen.
Within the medical freedom movement, a controversy erupted a few
months ago between Dr. Peter Breggin and the psychologist
I greatly admire Dr.
Breggin and his work. I consider his book

Predators - We Are the Prey a magisterial work of scholarship and
However, I also found Desmet's book,
The Psychology of
Totalitarianism, to contain many compelling observations and
persuasive arguments, which remind me of similar observations made
by the Swiss psychoanalyst, Carl Jung.
I doubt this controversy will ever be resolved because human
behavior cannot be measured and described in scientific terms.
Why people, individually
and in groups, behave as they do is usually a combination of
emotions and desires shaped by material circumstances, customs, and
Sometimes it's obvious
when masses of people are being influenced and
propaganda, but we are also capable of being irrational,
self-defeating, and destructive for no ascertainable reason.
Tonight in Washington - at the end of an evening of long discussion
- we returned to our respective hotel rooms, still unsure of just
what is going on and why...
Why is Senator
Johnson virtually alone in pursuing his inquiry...?
Why is Dr.
McCullough - a mild-mannered medical scholar who mostly reads
and cites peer-reviewed literature - the subject of an
orchestrated and relentless campaign to strip him of every
single position, credential, and certification he has attained
in his long career...?
Pondering such questions
in recent years has often reminded me of the character
Mephistopheles in Goethe's famous play,
introduces himself as follows:
Ich bin der Geist der
Und das mit Recht;
denn alles was entsteht

And rightly so; for
everything that comes into being,
Deserves to perish;
It would be better if
nothing came into being.

Is my true element.
The ever-seeking and
inquiring Faust does not recoil from Mephistopheles, but engages him
in conversation, clearly wanting to learn more about him, his
nature, and his motives.
It's notable that Goethe
was himself a natural scientist who was particularly interested in
optics and the color spectrum.
Both he and his
protagonist seemed to accept that there is no rational explanation
for what motivates Mephistopheles, the spirit that always negates,
whose true element is sin, destruction, and evil.
Mephistopheles seems to embody the strange fact that humans may
corrupt and destructive enterprises that don't really
No particular motive such
as the desire for money or power can quite explain it.

gratification of acquiring money and exercising power for old
men who already have tons of both and few years left to live...?
