GAIN-OF-FUNCTION RESEARCH; A EUPHEMISM FOR GERM WARFARE RESEARCH

The biohazard symbol (from Biological hazard – Wikipedia)

When I heard about this on Mornings on the Mall (wmal.com) this morning, the eyerolls would not stop.

What does A Plague on Both Our Houses – Tablet Magazine tell us? Well, although it seem likely, we cannot be certain that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) originated from a research lab in Wuhan, China, but this much is certain. We, the citizens of the United States were paying for germ warfare research in China. First, however, let’s define a euphemism, “gain-of-function.”

If you can’t quite figure out what the term means, that is intended, because, GoF is a euphemism for a practice that might seem rather Dr. Strangelovian, and the furthest thing from forethought or prudence, or preventative medicine. It involves deliberately making viruses much more dangerous, to the point that they will cause a pandemic. “Gain-of-function” is the perfect term if you need a grant from a scientifically illiterate public composed of nervous types who, for some reason, don’t like or trust the idea of experts making invincible killer germs. “Viral-deadliness enhancement” would be a turnoff, but gain-of-function sounds like the title of a promising self-help fad. To call it a “euphemism” is a euphemism, because it is really doublespeak, like those military obfuscations such as “pacification,” which mean almost the opposite of what they appear to.

Now let’s get to the point. The United states was funding germ warfare research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

However, it is the case that GoF research is also the meat and potatoes of germ warfare, the manufacture of biological weapons and—perhaps—measures to counter them. On Jan. 15, the U.S. State Department stated:

“The United States has determined that the WIV has collaborated on publications and secret projects with China’s military. The WIV has engaged in classified research, including laboratory animal experiments, on behalf of the Chinese military since at least 2017.”

Militaries could be interested in this research for offensive or defensive purposes, or for both. The United States funds “anti-terror” research through a health budget. As New York magazine reports, after Sept. 11, “Fauci’s anti-terror budget went from $53 million in 2001 to $1.7 billion in 2003.”

What idiot would help the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) develop germ warfare capabilities?

We can be amazingly crooked and stupid, especially when we think we are unaccountable. Therefore, giving people even a little power can be dangerous. Instead of electing or appointing good public servants, we can too easily find to our horror we have elected scoundrels who spend their time lining their pockets, devising more devious ways to gain more power and influence, and covering up their sins.

Even electing someone to the local school board can be fraught with risk. Here is a “great” example, California school board members appear to mock parents in video: ‘They want their babysitters back’ | Fox News. During an online meeting, school board members, believing their meeting private, said what they really think about parents. You have to see it and hear it to believe it.

Listened to that school board video. Now think about this. What makes the choices this School Board makes superior to letting parents make their own choices?
