D4CE 5th Symposium - Session V Remember Democracy
With Wolfgang Wodarg, Catherine Austin Fitts, Polly Tommey, and Meryl Nass
Polly Tommey of CHD.TV opened the session by introducing Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg, medical doctor, former politician, and expert on public health and pandemics, who spoke about the foundations of Democracy, the mechanisms of its erosion, and core principles for rebuilding democratic governance once again.
Wolfgang Wodarg: Guideposts Towards a Future of Our Own Making
Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg began by inviting viewers to “remember there was democracy” and to “think over how we could re-establish it in many parts of the world.” He shared a formula for resilient democracies, which centres around transparency as a function of societal size and complexity. Transparency, he stressed, is the critical ingredient for safeguarding Democracy, such that governance occurs in the interests of citizens rather than those in power.
Catherine Austin Fitts and Dr. Meryl Nass joined Polly Tommey and Wolfgang Wodarg to discuss Dr. Wodarg’s presentation, focusing on how to fight back.
Michael Palmer, MD, rounded off the symposium with a message to doctors, nurses, patients, and lawyers. Finally, Catherine Austin Fitts read Vermont Royster’s In Hoc Anno Domini (In This Year of Our Lord), written for the Wall Street Journal in 1949 at Christmas, as the world recovered from a devastating war. In Hoc Anno Domini describes Saul of Tarsus’ conversion and emancipation from a world in bondage, with a message to stand fast in liberty, render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and “be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” The editorial proved so popular that it has been re-published by the Wall Street Journal every Christmas Eve since 1949.
