JAMES BOND FOOT & MOUTH
The following excerpts from the 1969 James Bond movie ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE are very interesting in light of foot-and-mouth events in England and elsewhere in the world. I assume most people will recognize the similarities. ~ Jackie Jura
"Blowfelt: Merry Christmas double O seven... In a few hours the United Nations will receive a Yuletide greeting. The information that I now possess is the scientific means to control the economy of the whole world. People will have more important things to think about than you.
Bond: If they believe your threat.
Blowfelt: laughs, Oh, they will. In any case I've prepared a demonstration. Remember that disagreable outbreak of foot and mouth disease in England last summer? Well, I shall instruct them, in very convincing terms, exactly how I arranged that and my capacity has improved since.
Bond: allergy vaccines? bacteria? bacteriological warfare!
Blowfelt: With a difference. Our great breakthrough since last summer has been the confection of a certain Vidas Omega.
Blowfelt: Total infertility in plants and animals - not just disease in a few, Mr Bond, or the loss of a single crop - but the destruction of a whole strain - FOREVER, throughout an entire continent. If my demands are not met I shall proceed with the systematic extinction of whole species of cereals and livestock all over the world.
Bond: Including, I suppose, the human race?
Blowfelt: I don't think, Mr Bond, that the United Nations will let it come to that. Not after their scientists analyze a small sample of Vidas Omega they've received.
Bond: Epidemics of sterility. Nothing is born. No seed even begins to sprout. They'll find an antidote.
Blowfelt: Of course. IF i give them enough time.
Bond: They'll have time. Once they're warned you'll have trouble dispensing the stuff.
Blowfelt: That problem hs already been solved. I have been training my own special "angels of death".
Bond: Those girls?
Blowfelt: Those girls, and many others like them.
Bond: But exactly how?
Blowfelt: That will remain my secret.
Bond: And how many hundred millions do you want for your services this time, Blowfelt?
Blowfelt: This time, this time, the price is of another kind. You'll be even more amused when you know what.
Bond: Meanwhile -
Blowfelt: I will keep you here as my guest. You will be very useful in helping to convince the authorities that I mean what I say, and I'll do what I claim. Come, let me show you to your new quarters...."
The next scene is a group hypnotising session that takes place after the "angels of death" have been put to sleep with a drug in their eggnog.
"Blowfelt: And now you're going on a journey, a journey home. But first you must rest for awhile. Rest. Rest. And after you've done what I teach you, you'll forget it, forever. Forever. Forever. Forever. And now you may open your eyes again. Such a prettily wrapped present. Now is the time to open them. Open them. You see, they're beautiful. And you're longing to know what is inside."
The girls each wrip open the paper and lift the lid on a gift-box of make-up inlcuding a spray bottle of perfume, lipstick, eyeliner and a compact.
"Blowfelt: You may use anything but the aerdolizer, which you must never touch, never, until I tell you how and where to use it. Open the compact. Adjust the volume control. Every night at exactly twelve o'clock you must be alone so that you can switch on that receiver and listen for my voice. I will tell you what to do. I will tell you when. And I will tell you how. After you've heard what I say, push the mirror back to conceal the receiver again. Pusht it back now and close the case. Now, rest again. Rest. In a few minutes you will wake up. You will not remember what I have just told you until you return home..."
