This is a work of genuine scholarship of the highest order, and to read it closely and with an open mind one can't help but be convinced of its essential truth... This book should be read by anyone who cares about our world. It is brilliant and extremely timely. --EDWARD CURTIN, author of Seeking Truth in a Country of Lies
"Kees van der Pijl, an author of distinction, writes that the global ruling class or oligarchy used Covid-19 to seize power by declaring a state of global emergency. He explains that the Information Technology revolution, by creating a global information and communication system, was ushering in a social transformation inimical to the oligarchy's hegemony over society. In order to stop this transformation, the global elite used lockdowns, mandates, censorship and controlled narratives to seize control over populations... Van der Pijl makes a cogent argument. He shows that the 'pandemic' is a political emergency, not a medical one. Its purpose was to suppress populations and transition to an authoritarian state and social structure... -- PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
Brilliantly researched, impeccably sourced, the story is told in an engaging style and with great analytical acuity. Here is a dire warning against the slide into authoritarianism... -- WILLIAM I. ROBINSON, Distinguished Prof. of Sociology, UC-Santa Barbara
Derailing these nefarious agendas is without doubt the most urgent task facing humanity today and States of Emergency provides a powerful, thought provoking and critical starting point on the road to awareness and resistance. -- DR. PIERS ROBINSON, Organisation for Propaganda Studies
