Ebola is big news. It’s also BAD news.
In this episode, we are joined by a special guest – Joe Long – as we discuss the fear mongering and doom-saying surrounding this virus. We try to come to terms with some truths, so that we can look at things logically and rationally, instead of through the eyes of fear.
Join with us as we explore the things surrounding Ebola.

The following are the show notes that were used in the recording of this episode, here for your reference and convenience.
What has been happening in the news?
One confirmed case in Dallas, with the man originally being released from the hospital. CDC confirmed that he exposed at least 80 people.
The WHO is using some serious scare tactics, constantly pushing the “it could go airborne” idea forward. This is putting people into a serious panic.
(Edit to note that the man has since passed away from the virus, and is the first and only case to happen in America thus far.)
Why Ebola, and why now?
Ebola is one of the scariest viruses out there, destroying the body from the inside out. It is, without a doubt, terrifying.
The powers that be love to use scare tactics. It has been done many times in history, and will many times more in the future. If you read or really listen to the language being driven regarding this virus, you’ll hear the obvious double speak.
There “might” be cases here. There “is a chance” it could go airborne.
It has been airborne before! In 1989, in fact.
And why now? There’s no better time! There not been as much of a response to ISIS that they have been pushing onto us, despite them releasing videos of beheadings, despite all of the scare tactics being used. People are just not being as afraid as they want.
The powers that be, or the dark side, WANTS us in fear, they WANT us to have that negativity going on, because then they gain MORE power, more control and more ability to carve the future out in their image. They are creating the world through us, literally.
Should you be afraid of it?
Sure, a little fear regarding dangerous things is smart, and healthy.
However, abject fear or fear to the point that you make mistakes or can’t do anything is the opposite of what you should do.
You can take precautions against it. Keep yourself clean. Don’t touch poop. Don’t touch blood or sweat from people that you think are sick. That’s being smart.
If there WAS a reason to fear, they would have closed the borders.
