PANDEMIC OF FEAR AS A BIOPOWER OF THE “GLOBAL GOVERNANCE” SYSTEM

Abstract

We are faced with biocontrol of the whole society imposed by the invisible centers of power which, through networked activities through various but connected organizations, want to unite their activities globally under the pretext that the world is not prepared for the coming threats, one of which is an epidemic.

“Life as a political object” is turned towards the controls that are exercised over it, in the name of the ‘right’ to life, body, health, security. Contemporary politics is bio politics as a power that regulates social life from within it as a control covering all the depths of consciousness and the body of the population. By attacking both one’s biological body and one’s “social body”, the individual’s psyche is strained to the point of disconnection. We are in the fight against the “invisible enemy” who is omnipresent and unknown with the following fear. This planned pandemic shows that we are in the process of social engineering as sort of biological and psychological war. In biopower we are following the narrative to coarse into compliance, painful to resist, so we eventually compromise with the different “measures” of “new normal”, which have elements of torture.

According to Mike Pompeo, The Secretary of State, COVID 19 is a “live exercise” оr some kind of “gaming scenarios”, and it comes as a tremendous cost both to humanity and the economy. We are facing a new global technotronic age in which supranational and multinational companies are a kind of global invisible rulers.

The paper will show, with a theoretical approach that the foundations of biopower are fear, insecurity, and panic. The emphasized fear of the invisible enemy is supported by scientists and harmonized with media exposing with different and contradictory information. Fear is spreading due to the depressiveness of power and is related to biopower, which is aimed at the good of the population, and is visible in the action of power exercised by networked centers of “global government” as advocates of private-public partnership. The presented documents show the action of biopolitics as a planned scenario and the network action of “soft, invisible power” which acts globally, and in the financial background are private foundations. In whole this constellation, the appearance of the “conspiracy theories” as “unofficial” and “deprived knowledges” is imminently and provocably present evident nowadays.
