I entered this conversation thinking that I already knew the story, in a way. Dr Wodarg had succeeded in preventing the WHO from creating a fake pandemic in 2009. He thought the world wasn't silly enough to be fooled twice, but he'd been wrong. 1/9 pandata.org/wolfgang-wodar…
He'd previously had ready access to mainstream media and found this suddenly cut off when he opened his mouth to voice his concern about the hysterical mania of Covid. The comically corrupt whom he'd vanquished all those years ago had been waiting for him. 2/9
All sorts of web entries about his courageous and humane career in public health and politics had morphed into caricatures that painted him as a freak; a "denier", as the post-modern parlance goes, with no means of redress. 3/9
This much I knew before I even started asking questions. What I hadn't expected was to find political correspondence with him, & we found that all of a sudden towards the end of the interview. He calls himself a socialist, I call myself scale dependent, & stop there. But ... 4/9
... it turned out we'd kindled the same central concept—subsidiarity. Subsidiarity is a principle in social organisation holding that functions which are performed effectively by local organisations belong more properly to them than to a dominant central one. 5/9
It has an analog in biology, because it permits evolution, which is the only means by which knowledge grows and things become progressive; with competing ideas being given daylight, just as competing organisms are given theirs. 6/9
It enshrines human agency, the opposite of the dysfunctional coercive ideas behind lockdowns and mandates, behind the Great Reset and suspension of democratic process that key actors on the global stage have planned so carefully to advance. 7/9
It transcends standard labels, recognising that humans are quite social in their local domains, but liable to becoming tyrannical & egomaniacal when they access massively scaled ones. It invites you to be an egalitarian in your neighbourhood & libertarian regarding the WHO. 8/9
Please start your year pondering the remarkable story of Dr Wodarg, & the implications of his perspectives. If you don't, you'll one day apologise to your kids, & they may not accept your apology, because he's so right. Our rare era of progress & generativity is under threat. 9/9

“When the law is unjust, violating it is not only justified as legitimate, it is exalted as heroic.”

The regulations are absurd, from masks, to curfews, to closures. People see they’re ineffective & destructive & they are disobeying, as they all should. businesslive.co.za/fm/opinion/pro…
We have state capture, media capture and corrupt science all participating in this tragic miscarriage of justice, this terrorizing and brutalizing of ordinary people. Democracy lies in ruins, there is no debate and no chance to question and demand answers.
Every citizen has an ethical obligation to resist. Complicit politicians, journalists and scientists will have their day of reckoning. The rest of us need to be on the right side of history.

Before you decide that you’re worried about that new “mutation”, please listen to professor of virology, Vincent Racaniello, replacing governmental bad science with some good science. 1/7
Some key points: No reason to expect greater transmissibility, a change in the ages of people at risk or greater virulence. This is neither a mutation nor a new strain. 2/7
Epidemiological measurement is not a sound basis for assessing the impact of the changes. 3/7

This thread details a social experiment of sorts. PANDA members have dropped bombshell after bombshell in recent weeks, with nary a peep out of media or the lockdown zealots of social media. Let’s recap on @Pandata19’s recent messages: pandata.org
We pointed out that basic epidemiology predicts that lockdowns will cause Covid mortality to increase, by shifting disease burden onto the vulnerable. Our forthcoming paper shows how this has played out in the international data:
This is not new. Our advisory board member, @MartinKulldorf, has been making the consequential case for the benefits of focused protection since early April!

When a handful of scientists were ejected from South Africa's Ministerial Advisory Committee, we were hopeful that they would speak out against the malarkey. Instead, the "Scientists Collective" are inflaming it, as @PanData19 describes here: 1/10 dailyfriend.co.za/2020/12/07/a-f…
The condescending tone and overdose of misinformation in the article we reference tells us a lot about how South Africa came to adopt such a catastrophic response to a virus that presents no significant threat to the vast majority of its population: 2/10 dailymaverick.co.za/article/2020-1…
The SC have been right in pointing out that South Africa's lockdown had clearly not been responsible for the long wait for its winter outbreak, cautioned against overhyping second waves and spoken against immunity passports and travel quarantine. This is sound. 3/10

The embedded thread is not getting the traction it deserves. This is probably owing to its technical nature. Its importance cannot be overstated. Instead of retweeting the header, this time I retweet one of its bombshells: 1/6
@robinmonotti's main point is that the @WHO's testing guidelines were modified to promote significant false positives, even pointedly dropping the measures designed to avoid them, as illustrated in a reply to the thread: 2/6
Months ago, I'd heard a story that labs were testing with one primer, but ignored it as laughable. This image shows exactly that happening, in Italy. 3/6
