To reopen society...
Step 1: end mass testing
The best diagnosis for people who test themselves when they are not sick is HYPOCHONDRIA. 1/4
Step 2: End Homosapienphobia
Fear not your fellow humans. They are innocent until proven guilty.
If you don’t feel sick, you are not sick unless you are delusional.
3/4
Step 3: Break free from bondage. Be free. Act free. Reassert your humanity and your divinity. Make your own decisions and limit them to yourself.
4/4
Oops! Sorry guys. That was supposed to be ‘dignity’.

"All mortality models turned out to be wrong."
Let's just accept that we can't predict how the virus will behave, how much pre-existing immunity there is, when will new waves come and go and when will herd immunity be achieved. 1/n
pandata.org/panda-first-pr…
Lockdowns harm and should be unlawful regardless of the disease.
"Even if government had been correct that 89,000 – 351,000 people would die of COVID in the first wave, PANDA’s analysis showed that more damage would be done through lockdowns." 2/n
"PANDA predicted that the second wave would not kick off until winter. We were clearly wrong."
When we make mistakes @PanData19, we own them and correct them. Governments make mistakes and persist on the same course. 3/n

Rules are made to be broken and structures are made to be bent. When rules and structures are no longer serving the best interests of people they must be placed under evolutionary pressure until they mutate into a better variant of themselves. 1/n
Rotten institutions and corrupt governments are causing horrendous harm.
So rise up and put pressure on that evolution to speed up a novel variant of governance that respects human dignity, personal freedoms, human agency and free will. 2/n
It is not by bowing to the interests of the few at the top that we reach the greater good of society. It is by meeting the interests of individuals like you and me that we reach the greater good of society. 3/n

In a world that has slowly drifted away from traditional faiths, the gods have been replaced with politicians. The new religious ideology is based on pseudoscience that is twisted and manipulated to convince the populace with righteousness and safteyism. 1/n
The preachers are the short-sighted scientists who don't believe what they preach but preach it anyway.
The believers happily perform rituals like elbow bumps and skipping through circles on the ground.
All performing a ludicrous dance that is threatening our exisitence. 2/n
They hold blind beliefs in the super magical powers of communal behaviours such as lockdowns.
They wear masks as religious symbols of their piety.
They readily make sacrifices to appease their Gods.
They sacrifice their freedoms, their diginity and their humanity. 3/n

We are being distracted and kept busy with masks, PCR tests, variants and lockdowns while the heart of the problem is emerging clearly to be a chasm between centralization and decentralization.
1/n
Our world has slowly slipped into authoritarian regimes with the approval of the majority who is afraid for its life. 2/n
Larger more powerful governments control the means of production by allowing businesses to open or remain closed.
They tell businesses how many clients they can serve.
They tell businesses how to conduct their work with endless guidelines that they must follow. 3/n

Mark,
The fatality rate in most people infected with SARS-CoV-2 is very similar to that of the flu. COVID-19 is less severe than the flu for children and young people and more severe than the flu for the elderly with severe underlying illness. 1/n
“At a very broad, bird’s eye view level, worldwide the IFR of COVID-19 this season may be in the same ballpark as the IFR of influenza (0.1%, 0.2% in a bad year).” John Ioannidis @Stanford said that. Not @PanData19.

“the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%)” Fauci said that. Not @PanData19.

@konfytbekkie ,
Stop blaming the people for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th ... wave. The people can’t control the virus. The virus is roaming around & it will continue to do so. That is called nature.
1/n
What we must do is stop messing with nature because we don’t know what effect slowing down transmission will have on viral mutations. 2/n
Normally, mutations lead to more transmissible variants but less virulent (less dangerous).
Could lockdowns lead to more virulent variants? Do you know the answer to this, Marthélize? 3/n
