Best of "Smart Power": Reasons for Disaffection in Italy, and the Destruction of the Post-War Liberal Order

Georgia maloniUpdate: Meloni has claimed victory. In 2018, measles were part of the global health campaign. in 2021, The Green Pass divided Italians. In summer 2021, Fratelli d'Italia party leader Georgia Meloni spoke out against the Green Pass. Yesterday, Italy voted, Meloni was on the ballot. John's 2018 post follows the CNN quote below. John Stone wrote "Smart Power": Reasons for Disaffection in Italy, and the Destruction of the Post-War Liberal Order.

Italians were voting Sunday in national elections in which the far-right Brothers of Italy party -- led by Giorgia Meloni -- appears poised to make big gains after the collapse of two governments since the last election.

The term "smart power" was new to me when I encountered it recently in a British Medical Journal blog as part of the new-speak vocabulary of J Stephen Morrison 'senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and director of its Global Health Policy Center".  Morrison's article is interesting both because it discloses explicitly how 9/11 was made an opportunity  to draw health into the global security agenda of the United States while failing to understand how such a move might result in the shattering of "consensus" and the post war "Western post-war liberal order": "smart power" even if it is smart is not "liberal" and will not lead to consensus. But it also spells out that the global vaccine program has become a covert instrument of US power. If Morrison by any chance laments the passing of the centre-left government in Italy, then perhaps the White House putting Italy and its health minister, Beatrice Lorenzin, in charge of global vaccine strategy was an error

Morrison thinks it is a paradox but it is scarcely so if a government is seen to pursue coercive health measures over its citizens at the behest of a foreign power - even those who favor vaccination could be concerned at the state's new found powers over their bodies (which might also be indefinitely extended). If that was not so smart a political move perhaps the technology is not so smart either - as I remarked  to Steven Salzberg a few years ago: "The unwelcome news is that the “cruise missiles and drone helicopters” of the war on disease often hit the wrong target, and the more cruise missiles and drone helicopters you unleash the greater the risk".

Frankly, no one knows what they are going to be injected with next. Smart bombs become too easily the agents of international chaos and mistrust: just so the smart bombs of the war on disease, both for what they can do to your body and what they can do the political landscape, including destabilizing friendly governments. “Smart power” is also duplicitous: Italy is just the surrogate of the US. Why could the citizens of the world not have it directly from the mouth of Obama saying in effect your bodies are not your own and we inject into them what we like?

To make measles a key issue in global security is an unforgivable distortion of policy. It really is not clear why we are at more risk from disease now (apart from by the sinister development of viral technology) than at any time since the end of the Second World War, we are simply being gripped by a new manipulative rhetoric. Nor could we be further from the consensus that gave rise to the Nuremberg Code 70 years ago. Everything we have learnt has been stood on its head.

Below is a letter I recently wrote to British Medical Journal (unfortunately not so far published):

"Smart power": reasons for disaffection in Italy, and the destruction of the post-war liberal order and consensus

Owen Dyer presents a rather incomplete background to recent political events in Italy [1]. The is is not to say that I have any insight into what Giulia Grillo - the Italian Health Minister - intends, but there are  some gaps in the narrative regarding the defeat earlier this year of the  governing centre-left coalition, in which Grillo's predecessor - Beatrice Lorenzin - was a key player over several years. This is to say that there are reasons for discontent which apart from anything else fall well short of outright rejection of vaccination.

In the first place we seldom if ever hear mention in mainstream reports of the appointment of Lorenzin, and Italy, to head global vaccine strategy by the Obama administration in September 2014. An Italian government press release states [2]:

"Washington, 29 September 2014 - Italy will lead vaccination strategies and campaigns in the world over the next five years. This was decided by the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) held last Friday at the White House. Our country, represented by the Minister of Health Beatrice Lorenzin, accompanied by the President of the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) prof. Sergio Pecorelli, has been commissioned by the Summit of 40 Countries, at which also spoke US President Barack Obama...."

Equally, demonstrators against mandated vaccinations in Summer 2017 will likely have been aware of the statement by GSK's Italian administrator - Daniele Finocchiaro in 2015 [3]:

 "Recently I accompanied our global CEO, Andrew Witty, to Matteo Renzi. The premier told us clearly that he considers - and rightly so - the pharmaceutical sector as strategic for Italy. Further, he said that the pharmaceutical is precisely the future of our country ... I then met also Minister Lorenzin and other members of the government who reiterated the sensitivity of the government to those who invest, create jobs and opportunities for young people. So we started on the right foot. To find such sensitivity in Roman palaces is not to be discounted. As for us, Andrew Witty asked few things: certain rules and stability in the face of very strong investments in advanced research and production equipment. We understood each other."

Citizens may also have been sceptical of Lorenzin's claim that 270 children had died in a recent outbreak of measles in London [3,4], and they may have wondered why ten vaccines had to be mandated to protect against one disease.

It is interesting in this light to view the complaint of  J Stephen Morrison (senior vice president at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and director of its Global Health Policy Center) in BMJ Opinion that post-war consensus has broken down [5]:

"Global health is a product of the Western postwar liberal international order—an order that is today besieged, says Stephen Morrison"

"In the past two decades, we have witnessed an expansion of investments into global health that have been rooted in humanitarianism, the rule of law, and democracy. Underlying this action have been the principles of multilateralism, alliances, and partnerships. It has been consistently argued that investments outside home borders will not only save and improve lives but also promote economic growth and the stability of communities.

"In surprising and unforeseen ways, global health also benefited enormously from the post 9/11 counter terror doctrine that came to dominate the security strategies of the major Western powers. That doctrine aggressively advanced the argument that uncontrolled infectious diseases pose major transnational threats. It put a spotlight on smaller countries beset by weaker governance and fragile infrastructure, where grave health challenges can fuel armed, internal violence. Counter terror gave rise to the belief that focused investments—“smart power”—would achieve concrete results in improving lives while also winning hearts and minds in a global struggle."

But there is a paradox here that "smart power" is necessarily what everyone wants, or that the consensus is any longer "liberal". The Italian people were in effect being told that they must cede rights over their bodies and those of their children to the state because of the demands of global security strategy (starting apparently in the White House). Even if they accepted ten vaccines where would this end in principle? Could it be that the global strategists are themselves smashing the consensus, by  arrogating extraordinary rights over ordinary people? Morrison assumes this is a benefit of 9/11, but if so it was not one that the citizens of the world were consulted about, it was something which happened within US and global hierarchies and we were all just supposed to do as we were told.

Illuminati researcher Leo Zagani who I think is an Italian. He says in an interview with Mike Adams; t that says the change in Italy is only an illusion. Italian has lost control of their country because they no longer print their own money. I guess that is what Bill is talking about.

Meloni : She is a graduate of the Aspen Institute so despite a positive pro-family speech, buyer beware.

Robert Malone just posted this speech by Meloni from 2019

Liz Truss has just left the following message for Meloni on Twitter

Liz Truss


United Kingdom government official
Congratulations to @GiorgiaMeloni on her party's success in the Italian elections.

From supporting Ukraine to addressing global economic challenges, the UK and Italy are close allies. 🇬🇧🇮🇹

Davide Suraci

CNN has falsified what is really happening in Italy. We Italians are employed by a health dictatorship that has its origins with the Lorenzin Law on the vaccination obligation and the Obama Care. In Italy there have been no more right and left blocs for decades, but a parliament occupied by the servants of the NWO.

Davide Suraci

Over twenty million Italians did not go to vote. Abstention against the puppets of the NWO won

Angus Files

Trump got 15% of his vote via vaccine choice broken promises..Lets hop Meloni meets the mark.

Some have ended up flocking to Meloni, the only significant political leader to stay out of the unity deal, and thus by default the head of Italy’s political opposition.

Meloni has made sure to capitalize further on this unique opportunity. She’s done that by pandering, dangerously, to Italy’s growing crowd of vaccine skeptics, anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theorists and pretty much anyone who opposes the anti-COVID measures of the Draghi government.

What is making children and teens in America (and globally) pose "imminent danger of serious physical harm to self or others" from the article (social media won't let us talk about violent autism meltdowns or SIBs/anything outside rainbows-and-lollipops neurodiversity propaganda/savants)... What is making kids, preteens, and teens dangerously violent and destructive everywhere? Aluminum from vaccines/geoengineering (no longer a fringe "conspiracy theory" - VICE and other mainstream news now openly admit to weather modification - not just for seeding snow and rain?)

Here it is:

Autistic school shooter Adam Lanza is still alive, has migrated to Kansas and is screaming racial slurs at his new murder victims over there:


The neurodiversity narrative is already being fueled up to bring communism and eco-cities/"totally equal and fair" education systems, and so is the plandemic of MOTB microchips and bio-hacking:



The terms Right/Left have become very hollow, political platforms invisible, or muddled into slogan slinging. It is a challenging environment.

Davide Suraci

Far-right Brothers of Italy party isn't of far-right but a lobby directly controlled by NWO..


All the levers of power are in the hands of leftist control freaks. Often Republicans are dim and disorganized, but the individual has priority there. I am praying the right wins in the USA this November. Democrats have become control fraks.


As long as "far right" means anything but leftist totalitarian tyranny we are going to be abused. Stop invoking the "far rght" as thought it actually exists.

John Stone


I honestly don’t know how to read this - the BBC have announced this is the first far-right Italian government since the war, or perhaps the first far-right Italian government since 2018, but the last one didn’t deliver people from vaccine mandates - one of the main issues in the election - and they did deliver the country into the hands of an unelected Eurocrat quasi-dictator, Draghi. I have a feeling that when dust settles we may be in much the same place.

Jonathan Rose

John: Very insightful, as always. None of us can be happy about the advance of the far right in Europe, but Italians I spoke to did not hesitate to call the government's vaccine mandates "fascism". In Germany the media tried to paint RFK Jr. and the anti-mandate movement as far right, even followers of QAnon (!!), when in fact they were mostly superannuated hippies and organic food buffs. It may well be that the far right in Italy capitalized on antivaccine sentiment, but in that case aren't the mainstream parties effectively driving voters into the populist camp? If "moderate" parties impose noxious policies on unwilling voters, where do they expect those voters to go?


Let us be glad the Italian Lira no longer exist being replaced with the Euro then otherwise it would decline rapidly in value like the Brazilian Real from the policies of Neo-conservative politician claiming to be "Populist" like Brazil's Bolsonaro (he is of part ancestry Italian) and now Italy's Meloni. These policies would be bad for those autism parents in those countries because of the higher cost of food, rent, and even therapies and seizure medication. 10 years ago it was 2 BRS to USD Now 5 BRS to USD.
If the families in Italy could afford these needed things first place without generous welfare and disability pension which has liberal requirements in the Italian state causing Italy to be in recession and budget deficits. Brazil 's disability pension has a more conservative requirements to obtain the stipend and your income must be below a very low amount.
Autism parent beware Donald T--- caused the dollar to decline in value more than his predecessors and this added to the cost of living and of disability care so stop looking for a 'white savior" and a "godly man" and start lobbying for more funding in autism goods and services such as at home care and seizure medicines and if really needed gluten free food and to have those prices "fixed" and lowered even if this is political policy is "socialist"
