Reader’s Links for May 24, 2022

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

      […]According to the latest data reported by BNO, There have been 178 confirmed cases and 90 suspected cases across 19 nations.

      […]Bloomberg also reports that “a large proportion of cases have been among homosexual men, and may have been transmitted along sexual networks.

      To address the situation, dozens of Jynneos vaccine are being released in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

      […]The Jynneos vaccine is approved in the United States to be used against smallpox and monkeypox in people aged 18 and over, determined to be at high risk of infection.

      It is made by Denmark-based biotech group Bavarian Nordic, which recently announced that the Biden administration has placed an order for millions of doses, which would be manufactured and invoiced in 2023 and 2024.

      “Right now we are hoping to maximize vaccine distribution to those that we know would benefit from it,” McQuiston said. “So those are people who’ve had contact with known monkeypox patients, health care workers, very close personal contacts, and those in particular who might be at high risk for severe disease.”

      […]”There’s one pandemic we’re still in the middle of, and another emerging zoonosis that once again breached the species barrier is now transmitting in multiple countries,” said Mike Ryan, head of the WHO’s health emergencies program. “It’s a containable event nonetheless.”

    • global news – WHO confirms 131 monkeypox cases since outbreak first reported, remains “containable”

      Rosamund Lewis, head of the Smallpox Secretariat within the World Health Organization (WHO) Emergencies Programme said on Tuesday there have been 131 confirmed monkeypox cases and 106 further suspected cases globally, but the latest outbreak was “containable.”

      Lewis stressed skin to skin contact remains the primary mode of transmission. The usually mild viral infection that is endemic in parts of west and central Africa had previously rarely been seen in other parts of the world prior to the current outbreak. The majority of recent cases have been reported in Europe.

      She also said that while the outbreak was being treated as a “concerning situation,” she advised that “individuals remain at very low risk.”

Although one case of pericarditis was reported in BLA125678/0, assessed as possibly related to the vaccine due to temporal association, most clinical trials under the development program did not show an increased proportion of subjects with abnormal troponin or ECG compared with placebo controls. However up to 18.4% of the subjects in two of the pivotal clinic trials were reported to have abnormal troponins following vaccination without cardiac diagnosis or symptoms consistent with clinical cardiac events. The applicant will be asked continue monitoring cardiac related events as part of the post marketing pharmacy GI lance plan.

      Sweden and Finland must stop supporting terrorists, we want a written agreement from them on specific steps. Sweden and Finland wanted to send delegations to us, and our president accepted this offer, saying that our priority is diplomacy, Hürriyet newspaper quotes him as saying.

      According to Cavusoglu, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg may hold talks with representatives of Turkey, Sweden and Finland to discuss this topic.

      This was proposed by Stoltenberg, he added, without specifying when and where such a meeting could take place.

      Turkey called on Finland and Sweden to give guarantees before joining NATO

      According to the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry, Ankara will host the delegations of Sweden and Finland, where they will demand written guarantees from them not to support “terrorists from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party” and the lifting of defense sanctions

      Turkey needs to obtain written guarantees from Finland and Sweden not to support terrorists before agreeing to their entry into NATO. This was stated by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Hurriyet reports.

      “Sweden and Finland must stop supporting terrorists, we want a written agreement on specific steps from them. Sweden and Finland sent delegations to us, and our President [Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan] accepted this proposal, — he said.

      Cavusoglu stressed that the delegations will hold talks in Ankara, and the Turkish side will present demands on the “terrorists from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party”; (PKK) and the lifting of defense sanctions. The Minister also did not rule out that after the trilateral meeting, a quadripartite meeting could be held with the participation of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

      In mid-May, Finland and Sweden applied to join NATO. However, President Erdogan refused to support the decision of the countries, since they did not want to extradite the terrorists and imposed anti-Turkish sanctions.

      According to the Turkish edition of Sabah, the republic suggested that Finland and Sweden avoid contact with PKK leaders, refuse to admit PKK members to the parliaments of both countries, speed up the procedure for their extradition to Turkey as a condition for supporting the application.

    • bloomberg -DAVOS – George Soros Warns ‘Civilization May Not Survive’ Putin’s War

      Billionaire George Soros warned that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has rattled Europe and could be the start of another world war.

      “Other issues that concern all of humanity — fighting pandemics and climate change, avoiding nuclear war, maintaining global institutions — have had to take a back seat to that struggle,” Soros, 91, said Tuesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “That’s why I say our civilization may not survive.”

      Soros, a Hungarian-born Holocaust survivor, focused his speech on the rise of the “repressive regimes” of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping, calling the two countries the “greatest threat to open society.” His philanthropic organization of that name, Open Society Foundations, funds groups promoting justice, democracy, human rights and progressive politics.

      The two leaders have made “mind-boggling mistakes,” Soros said. “Putin expected to be welcomed in Ukraine as a liberator; Xi Jinping is sticking to a Zero Covid policy that can’t possibly be sustained.”

      The persistent lockdowns in China will disrupt supply chains, which could keep inflation around the world elevated and create a global depression, he said.

      Previous Critiques

      Soros has previously used the WEF stage to unleash blistering critiques. At the last meeting, in January 2020, he suggested without evidence that Facebook Inc. might be conspiring to help re-elect Donald Trump, who lost the US presidency later that year.

      In 2019, the former hedge fund manager warned of the “mortal danger” of China’s use of artificial intelligence to repress its citizens, a theme he hit again in his speech Tuesday.

      “AI is particularly good at producing instruments of control that help repressive regimes and endanger open societies,” Soros said. “Covid-19 also helped legitimize instruments of control because they are really useful in dealing with the virus.”

      Soros closed his hedge fund in 2011 and converted the firm into a family office, investing solely on behalf of himself, his family members and his network of philanthropies. He has a personal fortune of $8.5 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

But the deep flaws of their closed societies do not imply that open societies are destined to prevail.

      […]The European Union was established to prevent such a thing from happening. Even when the fighting stops, as it eventually must, the situation will never revert to the status quo ante. Indeed, the Russian invasion may turn out to be the beginning of World War III, and our civilization may not survive it.

      Canadian Defence Minister Anita Anand announced on Tuesday that the government had purchased more than 20,000 rounds of 155-millimetre artillery to send to Ukraine. She said the aid package would also include fuses and charge bags.

      The military shipment is the latest assistance provided to Ukraine as it continues to defend itself from an invasion by Russia. Canada has been sending supplies to the country since the war began in February 2022, including both lethal and non-lethal military aid.

      Anand’s announcement comes just as Russian forces had launched an all-out assault to encircle Ukrainian troops in twin cities straddling a river in eastern Ukraine. It’s a battle that could determine the success or failure of Moscow’s main campaign in the east. The defence minister said efforts were underway to deliver the supplies as quickly as possible.
