This is old news but worth a review if you haven’t seen it. The delusional construct of “irrational fundamentalists” rebelling against the “rational” (i.e. psychopathic) application of the empire’s prerogatives in their home countries is typical of the reductionist “scientific” mindset, which has a remarkable ability to ignore realities outside the domain of its approved grant proposals.
Note they’ve already (as of 2005) conducted experiments with aerosolized viruses (flu and rhinoviruses were mentioned), presumably in the middle east.
VMAT2 is involved in dopamine transmission in neurons. In that respect the virus is similar in action to antipsychotic drugs like thorazine.
An abstract from the collection of papers presented above:
Abstract: VMAT2 homozygous knockout monkeys die within three days … while the KO monkeys were alive, they did not feed and upon the autopsy it was concluded that they died of starvation. It appears that they had no will to live. The same conclusion was found in VMAT2 KO mice in 1997. …
Apathy seems to be the most sought-after result of psychiatric intervention.
Most likely the VMAT2 gene is associated with “irrational” feelings of altruism and empathy which have long been prime targets of the medical system here in the USA, via obstetrical abuse, circumcision, formula feeding and vaccination. Wrecking the ability of humans to connect outside the parameters of their individual skinner boxes is a long standing social control agenda.
Speaking of skinner boxes, this seems relevant: http://members.tranquility.net/~rwinkel/MGM/oldrefs/www.latimes.com/news/science/la-sci-workaholic12aug12.story
