"I have no qualifications in medicine whatsoever, so I have zero opinion to offer on plagues and cures. What I am copiously qualified to comment upon is the media reaction to COVID-19, and whether this is a reasonable reflection of reality. This is important, since our present situation includes huge curtailment of our normal freedoms of movement and commerce. Are those constraints proportionate, or overreach?
In particular, is the mass media performing its function of holding power (to put us under virtual house arrest) to account? There is a strong case to be made that not only in the answer “no”, but the media is actively promoting agendas that go against the public interest. For the purposes of this article, “the media” includes the major social media platforms, since they also frequently engage in (unlawful) editorialising and censorship.
We now know that the models originally used to justify lockdown policies do not reflect the real world experience: overly pessimistic inputs were exponentially compounded, resulting in paranoid forecasts. That is because COVID-19 seems to be a highly contagious condition (or maybe not), but not a particularly lethal one — when in comparison to total infections. Most people are asymptomatic, and those under 50 years of age nearly always recover."
"Where are the investigations into why the numbers dying from flu have dried up? Why is the CDC even stopping publishing flu data? Why are deaths from causes unrelated to COVID-19 seemingly dropping? Are people being given the right cause of death? What are the effects of a $40k (and up) financial incentive to ventilate someone (to death)? Why is hospitalisation data being deleted? Why are there 6x the cases and 12x the deaths in comparable Democrat cities versus Republican ones? Why are the NIH and CDC changing their tune on HCQ safety? Why does the WHO say there are no COVID-19 therapies when there visibly are? Why is the CDC sending out test kits that are themselves infected?
We are experiencing a lockdown of the free flow of knowledge, as well as of people. As a result, the public is unable to resist tyrannical policies imposed under the cover of public safety. COVID-19 is George Orwell’s “1984” — playing out in reality. Time to end this medical mafia media Party."
