MEXICO’S SHOCK DOCTRINE: THE SWINE FLU HYPE – TIPPING POINT FOR A NEW MEXICAN REVOLUTION?
MEXICO CITY (MAY 27TH) – Upon returning to Mexico City after 100 days in Gringolandia dealing with a personal health crisis, I was met at the door of the downtown hotel where I have bedded down for the past quarter century by a uniformed security guard in jackboots and blue surgical mask who insisted upon smearing my palm with a goopy hand sanitizer as a precaution against the much-hyped swine flu.
“I’m sorry,” the guardian lamented, “I know its all a ‘faramalla’ (farce, trick) but the boss gave us orders.” The hotel itself was empty, the guests having fled in the wake of the self-described “pandemic” and the draconian measures the government has taken to counteract it.
