Social analysis with a scientific edge from the ex-con who caught the virological community with their pants down.
Long before anyone in the mainstream media was sounding the alarm about COVID-19, I was meticulously tracking all of the emerging news around it and doing my best to sound the alarm about all of the anomalous characteristics around its genetic signature, and the ensuing geopolitical implications of its spread. Realizing that gain-of-function research was quite plausibly behind its origins, I began a petition to reinstate the moratorium against this far-too-risky research method, especially because as American and Chinese finger-pointing has intensified we seem to be headed towards an intractable cycle of blame, instead of focusing on the risks presented by allowing further gain-of-function research to occur.
Finally in August 2020, my dad and I became the first authors to publish a peer-reviewed paper arguing that COVID-19 may well be the result of a viral gain-of-function research experiment that leaked out of a lab. Since the last time I formally studied science was 20 years ago when I took AP Bio, my dad served as a sounding technical sound board and basically helped as a thesis advisor would.
And prior to my incarceration, I’d spent my college summers and a bit of time afterwards working as an analyst for the NSA (a position I might have left a bit hastily) where I realized that the most dangerous threat against America wasn’t terrorists attacking us from the outside, but instead a socioeconomic implosion due to the racial inequities perpetuated by various policies throughout almost all of our history, most recently by the War on Drug’s destruction of the black family. So I left to write a book to dispel the myth of the Die Hard-esque super terrorist and explain the phenomenon as the inevitable response to widespread social inequality, you can find Tremble the Devil available in its entirety free online.
