πŸ”₯ SHORT, MEDIUM, & LONG TERM πŸ”₯
πŸ”₯ HYSTERIA DEATHS πŸ”₯

We will be unpacking the health damage
from the Covid mass delusion for decades.
SHORT TERM HYSTERIA DEATHS - 1

A third or more of the acute deaths in March and April may have been lockdown-hysteria deaths.

SHORT TERM HYSTERIA DEATHS - 2

Indeed, the mortality peak in March / April has many features suggesting it is largely human induced, not due to biological infection.

SHORT TERM HYSTERIA DEATHS - 3

The acute hysteria deaths appear to be due to rash changes in medical practice due to fear.

MEDIUM TERM HYSTERIA DEATHS

Excess at-home deaths have remained significantly above normal over the entire year, as the bottom graph shows. These are attributed to lockdown-related delays and changes to medical practice.

LONG TERM HYSTERIA DEATHS

The resultant economic devastation from β€œfreezing” economies disproportionately affects the developing world, plunging hundreds of millions into lower levels of poverty, & consequently starvation & associated sickness & death.

This should have been obvious. But not when one is under a delusion.

Our guard must always be against mass hysteria and mass delusions.

WHY FEAR OF INFECTION IS SO DANGEROUS

<thread>

One should always be on guard for group think and the madness of crowds, as I often discuss.

2/

But we’re disproportionately susceptible to group think when we’re afraid, because fear is infectious.

3/

But not all perceived threats are as dangerous. Some are worse.

When the perceived societal harm is infectious, whether literal or metaphorical, the dangers are disproportionate.

We see perceived societal infection underlying many mass delusions.

"The mainstream media has been on a mission to cheerlead the lockdown narrative. Countries like Sweden and Japan that diverge from the approved narrative are the object of their special ire for irresponsibility bordering on criminal dereliction of duty."

japantimes.co.jp/opinion/2021/0…
"Examples of better outcomes w/out the extensive range of health, mental health, livelihoods, economic and civil liberties costs of harsh lockdowns should be welcome. Instead, many commentators seem to be willing the lockdown-light countries to fail so they can feel vindicated."
"Unfortunately for them, there is little empirical data to support the mathematical models on which governments relied to clamp lockdowns. The virus is not unprecedented, but the draconian societal shutdowns are. Who would have expected [the West] to mimic authoritarian China?"

The Left has believed the Right are deplorables/racists for decades, but the hatred has only gotten deeper, with social media further augmenting it by creating even tighter/larger echo chambers.

When your opponents are witches, canceling them to their roots is a righteous must.

THE SICKNESS OF ACADEMIA & MEDIA

0/ There are already fairly obvious reasons why it’s a sign of sickness that academia is around 97% politically left. ...and the same for journalists.
1/ But, in addition to the resultant political bias, the fact that there’s only one narrative, and one variety of reputation currency, makes such communities unable to independently address issues that aren’t per se even political at all.
2/ Once one side on some non-political topic (like Covid) ends up absorbed into the existing narrative (perhaps somewhat arbitrarily), members must tout that viewpoint lest they abandon the community wherein they have thus far accumulated their hard-earned reputation.

Some ambiguity illusions in some recent VINO OPTICS materials, ending in a hint of letters in natural scenes.

This relates to my earlier discovery that letters culturally evolved to look like natural junctions, thereby harnessing our visual recognition system for reading.
My publication on how human writing systems came to look like nature.

THAT’S how we apes β€” who never evolved to read β€” can read.

0/ BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

β€œBig Tech (FB, Twitter, YouTube) are private, so can limit content and it’s not censorship.”

As a libertarian, I of course respect that sort of argument.

But there are at least four reasons why it’s not enough.
1/ SOCIETAL TOLERANCE

Free speech is a mirage if there are forces itching to snitch on you and get you cancelled.

2/ DECENTRALIZED REPUTATION & TRUTH

We evolved decentralized reputation mechanisms that tend to lead to the truth. Emotional expressions are part of that system, the topic of my next book, UNMASKED.

We ALL should want to keep things decentralized.
