spanish flu it was warning about the emergence of a slew of the i am told age 5 n one. which had an extraordinary high rate but since the book was written several new her high it is of influence a equally is steadily. and troubling to have arisen in on a very limited scale infected humans the threat of an influenza pandemic. is steadily as 189900 remains absolutely a minute and zooming as samin discussed during a pandemic nears the importance of developing a universal flu vaccine their attacks the in very in their area parts of the service in of influenza and could give a series from every poor even in influenza has we should realise that this is not

a pandemic it's the beginning of an age of pandemics. that researchers in china base the institute. that's come under attack from president truman. had genocide mission research and discovered the reservoir of the more than $350.00 per pervert $500.00 varieties of prone of viruses all with the potential to jump to mammal other mammals and eventually humans. in china know whose knees most the largest food merrill's in the world. fly their bats $1500.00 species about $200.00 is feces have now been surveyed to some extent or another so there's a whole universe of trona viruses there. as well as many other kinds of
9:32 am
viruses that. are part of the natural reserve war and it is corporate law again an expansion of clear cut in and agriculture break down the barriers between a sunni animals of the rain forests around the world as we destroy israel floors were ever increasing the possibility of transmission of viruses and the possibility of new pandemics and you kind of imply there's no cover up when no one else was conceived as concerned as you were the information you say was out there similarly we're not being told now we live in the age of coronaviruses plural because why because there's no cover up but there is a structural well one of the things the troubled ministration did and in this country the attack on. research on potentially pandemic diseases and in
9:33 am
general one public health started the day or 2 is not your asian is he defunded. in american sponsored program there was an early warning system through the emergence of novel lyra says in diseases in china and in southeast asia. he also of course fired the team on the national security council that obama had created in the aftermath of the. new blow of deadly ebola happy demick in. west africa. to deal with. pandemic which it was universally agree. was in the needs threat the united states some other countries i mean the warnings about this since. the beginning of the millennium have been constant the planning.
9:34 am
has been kind of trials and there are reports that have been done since it but it's suddenly united states that soon your country and. most countries of western europe are always planning came to nona who is a largely. ignored and now in my country. president tried and has who he says are all on which is a medical spokesman name scott apple as he's a parks news commentator who exactly parrots the line that the tribe in ministration expresses that mass probably useless schoolchildren don't transmit the earth and to make the testing should be limited to only people in critically endangered groups tromp obvious he says things that he
9:35 am
says off of the united states are doing better and he certainly is doing better than that the united kingdom on deaths per capita well in the case of britain i mean i think. it is so obvious that a deliberate strategy of herd immunity. was followed that the johnson government. deliberately decided to minimize damage to. the economy by letting the disease essentially spread and the catastrophic failure of the u.k. government. to come immediately to the aid of people in senior homes and. nursing moms nyquist same thing as news sweden which explicitly. did herd immunity and behind this there is a kind of. would i would consider enormous new nazi.
9:36 am
germany as it were whole lies unworthy of light and the whole idea that some part of the population is sacrifice that will prove the greater good of the economy through credit diabolic there well obviously we invite the swedish ambassador. to london and on the program sweden did say that they have made some mistakes so that it has any nazi activity and as far as johnson they moved away from her the unity and there's presumably going to be a public inquiry here as to what exactly british policy was but more systemically since you mention the economy rather than just talk about the preventative elements now we have that pandemic. is. we to expect pandemics because of capitalism we've now seen. how rapidly the virus can be transmitted around the world but the point is that this resides
9:37 am
a very old debate about global health and one side of it was focusing on was represented for instance the 19th twenty's and thirty's by the rockefeller foundation which was the largest financier of disease prevention of the global scale and within the british empire and the rockefeller paradigm was not areaway campaign sargon as pacific at the german or as civic bacteria that. passage of the nearest side repeating where i think it is something whole social medicine which said that attacking the pathogen alone without attacking the poverty of the population the lack of primary care would always be a put side of the whole and this is could not be more true than.
9:38 am
today we see around the world and not only in court. whose public help pages. have been ravaged to realign its generation but in the united states and united kingdom were health care and public health authorities. separate back there to attempt a particularly out to the 2008. economic crisis since visible and most here in trains east asia. has been an exception. just some except for is there is reasons for it in the atlantic not always and we now see the price paid by conservative fiscal policies in a new liberal economics so you really think that it's comparable thing in fact that to the 1918 spanish flu famously. spread through the trenches it's
9:39 am
comparable to post 2008 infrastructural incapacitation after the bank bailout well they're 1918 example the knowledge is very serious constant way but in 189090 new jersey people new world died of insolence and more than 20 orian died in india and in western india as a result the food elite grain picked term and other policies that exported massive amounts. in ingrained just feed the indian armies in the field through war. it was associated so food prices rose sequel in india the same time that was drought in the bad cholera
9:40 am
epidemic soup had this huge party lation. who are people with compromised immune systems and i am argue that in fact today we have to recognize it's immunological standpoint newly to humanity's in new u.k. or the united states maybe a 5th of the argue lation. is immunologically compromised it's not just because cancers and diseases but also because of malnutrition oh it is assumed sections like hiv but in poor countries in sub-saharan africa and south asia and many parts of merican. the majority of the population is 75 percent. is in this position be kinda ripped through.
9:41 am
and demi i should say and then they un special rapporteur who talked about increasing malnutrition after $28.00 in britain he said it was a political decision the british government denied that completely michael stopping that more from mike davis after this prank. elgar forward to talking to you or that a technology should work for. a robot must obey the orders given to a human being except where such orders to conflict with the 1st law show your identification or should be very careful about artificial intelligence to have a point obviously is to place a trust rather than a fair. word. playing with artificial intelligence will summoning the demon.
9:42 am
the obama must protect its own existence is. so small seems wrong. but. just don't call. me. to say palin he's going to come out again and indeed because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. welcome back i'm still here with the american scholar who forecast a global zoonotic we transmitted pandemic more than a decade and a half before coronavirus mike davis you say that in the united states where more people are being killed in any other than the nation with the most deaths you
9:43 am
believe the john bolton trumps that former national security adviser is key to understanding why the pandemic planning went so badly. well bowman's decision was to reorganize endemic preparedness to fire the crack team that obama had put in place he wanted everything focused on on bio warfare but the larger phenomenon of course is trumps absolute obsession with destroying and dismantling there we thing that. the previous president if put in. put in place remember this regime came into power valley to destroy do fordable care or obamacare and is constantly trying to do things like take the budget earth centers for disease control. if you look at this internationally
9:44 am
you see that the media agencies traditionally lead agencies in disease have been marginalized news control in the united states has had a totally marginal role in the european union where there exists a protocol. for countries to cooperate in responding to transnational disease or seumas totally new or so it has the job of ministration would say about a cat had many critics left and right and that has many critics as well. of of course but the fundamental problem you are with the job you is sure is in structural this financial countries started pay their dues their w.h.o. has become totally dependent. on aid coming from
9:45 am
a handful of governments and from the pharmaceutical industry and from a few philanthropy well let's just go to the big pharmaceutical companies because in this book you do talk about the role of private health insurance and big pharmaceutical companies as being maligned act as i mean this pandemic was that well the big pharmaceutical industries. which are always represented as being the main stage towards earth to disease the heroic innovators to earth new vaccines and drugs they become anything but they're in the case united states and through $950.00 s. . leading force the development of antibiotics for instance was actually armed forces the u.s. army there is an important state rule in other words in the development of new pharmaceutical treatments put under big pharma. the
9:46 am
the profits are made in developing heart medicines or serious fruit erectile disfunction and old men like like me not in developing a new generation of out of the arteries and above all not in an overall rolls and bank scenes which have to develop may only be used to. once so big pharma his coat back massively on on research and spends far more on average tyson and it just doesn't take any leadership in developing. jugs and bank c.d.'s that are not highly profitable but absolutely necessary for societies or home as you know they do deny that they say they're doing their best they're involved in a new super national initiative against coronavirus just very briefly i did mention
9:47 am
private health insurance you see that is symbiotic with us in october of last year . the council of economic advisers issued a report on oswald and demi. it is already seen as is imminent in it they point out and advise the president that big pharma will be incapable of meeting. the challenge of a pandemic prove precisely the absence of a strong profit motive in developing a nano by rules in back scenes this is would every big pharma says essentially build knowledge by why the government or new cures might in egypt. critics of big pharma private health care a chorus is led to new reasons of americans tens of millions of americans without health care and that number has dramatically increased to poor is as people have
9:48 am
lost their jobs in july base. health insurance and i think this sanders campaign really sent to skinny was absolutely correct to put the universal health care bridge at the forefront of the campaign and then it's actually massive support of you may think it's a minority position. which if you're on the news but survey out a survey shows that a to 70 percent of americans just really want some form of single payer. health care which of course it was or course by project that he wanted but in the book you also talk about the c.d.c. is this not just all private bad public the c.d.c. with such a reputation around the world for disease control in the united states and around the world they rejected the w h o developed covert testing kit that shocked you. yeah it is it is shocking they
9:49 am
also had another alternative which was the other test kit consists of is sensually 3 separate ters and they could eliminate the flawed 3rd tears and so had a viable so why would they have done the well that's a very interesting question they were defending true the problem with the chairs was it was actually contamination in their own production lines in georgia the c.d.c. totally. loses and losing through 4 weeks of testing allowed the disease to grow exponentially so and marge who started off with a handful of tested cases by the end of march it was increasing exponentially or over. there is several 100000 cases
9:50 am
it's continued to herd to grow adding that the c.d.c. is obviously we invite them on and there they say they're doing everything by the board who also actually talk about the fame thing happening with the immunity test i understand but the p.p.a. catastrophe you blame jared kushner and vice president pat. yes. and in many others earn including. tony fauci who has true liberal americans in fact are majority americans because the and the good doctor on this part talking in truth so long as it's now sit back at the end of 0 it was showing people absolutely no need so where were mass and he later admitted he views same as because. the drastic shortage of protective gear through hospital were decisions
9:51 am
in nurses but the one you see lied to the american public and this initial publicity campaign to discourage people from going out and trying to buy only mass is said to her alone lansing in very bitter effect well thought out to fatty obviously a hero to liberal media played by brad pitt in saturday night live with the deny anything he did was against clinical procedure and best interests of the american people what do you make of the fact they don't no one seems to really be talking about something like factory farming we had dr rob wallace he was telling us about the relationship between factory farming and coronavirus why do you think that's just not the subject of debate about when it comes to coronavirus in public discourse in nato nations. that of course is in part made in the largest
9:52 am
or the the problem with the democratic party and the app measures it takes around issues of public health in the origination of epidemic. diseases because instead the endemic threat can be kind of triangulated 2 to 3 things one is factory farming the organisation super sation of animals that maximizes. the probability of a viral evolution and transmission the 2nd is the old still destruction of the natural or it's the who traditionally isolated us from these enormous by rumors of wars. and wild animal populations but the 3rd part and the most important has been the constant reduction of public in basic help
9:53 am
budgets. across the world i mean many african countries only have a beer or some once of public service some why sierra leone not at all which is why the ball spread so rapidly a few years ago. in in western africa so each each point on their trying will have to see each side has to be the address and into we see that in reinvesting in basic healthcare. it's the absolute. a purty. we're going to see it. future appeared to mix. in a sense repeated however that scenes are not the solution a weapon the solution how so lie on each of these 3 points of in socialized
9:54 am
a ripple through the destruction truck wars in this investment in basic you know just very briefly america since you are speaking to us from los angeles and here are the greatest chronicler of it sir history i better ask even though tens of thousands upon tens of thousands are being killed in your country by covert what ever made of the air this incarnation of the civil rights struggle the black lives matter protests raging across the united states look after bernie sanders concession to joe biden. tens of thousands of young activist ideal that's earth were basically lurked in the desert the. toll the bully or you should do is going out there any people militant vote in this rebellious generations sense was saved by clients matter. and.
9:55 am
it's been a. movement i can't really think of it there are in terms of its rapid development who could have we that the question basic fundamental well question and it's. about all these thing in the need to please him. it would have been put on international agenda and you know to look for those who are seen on once in impossible so the black lights natter protests in addition to reminding us that civil rights have been under relentless attack for the republicans. for 2 decades or to create a template for resistance and a far broader scale one of the things that i've been most concerned is the rule of unions in. protesting developing a strategy to run. in
9:56 am
a dangerous conditions the so-called this essential work force in the health care workers is absolutely outrageous the other day. a report from the nurses. united national nurses you know sounded one 3rd of the nurses nicklin 3 still alive you know access to protect the. gear they should add to the end i need why. math so months later on stage months into. memory that program unit is yet to be so well donald trump says he's protecting the most vulnerable mike davis thank you that fit for the show will be back on wednesday 47 years to the day the cia station in chile received guidance from black to establish contact with military offices to overthrow democratically elected president salvador allende in the 911 washington back until that can say can join the other grabbing credit sound cloud instagram and facebook.
9:57 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race based on often scary dramatic development only i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of time time to sit down and talk. you just have to fly in between to. handle as fast as you can. the much article i section of the produce push for the. massless nature 1st a little late you're stuck. in the engine was still as important as the bench creel
9:58 am
of course water rushes in racing is competition in the extreme to have a full used a specified route between the lines with the fastest time whims just a little dog loser is nothing but your going to church every church or dish for you plus low should look good they're really trainloads a. leaking . world or. an academy similar to that we offer the world 75 years of unique experience we have are more than just the construction of a power station our projects include development of all nuclear infrastructure when
