@gummibear737 @EthicalSkeptic @MichaelPSenger @Covid19Crusher @EduEngineer @AbdenurFlavio I think, as humans we have difficulty with many issues of logic, probably primed by primitive instincts. We cannot distinguish between stories of grief and tragedy, and the actual risks.
This pandemic, the propaganda and repression of honest discussion have created a huge distortion in the dialog and perceptions. Add the authoritarian attitude of suddenly relevant officials and we have had a perfect storm. I had COVID19 and am older.
My case, clinically, was relatively mild. However, I have had a variety of lingering sequelae. Mild to severe headaches, bouts of overwhelming fatigue, loss of smell/taste and abnormal small vessel inflammation in several locations in my body.
That said, pandemics will be pandemics. I am glad I did not die, I am frustrated by symptoms that have been on-going for months but life continues.
We also see a culture wide escalation of fear. Life itself, is 100% fatal. Are we living the way we are designed to live?
It is difficult to comprehend how people that crossed oceans where 1-10% died, or had families suffering through the deaths of many children, or had maternal death rates higher than COVID19 persisting until the 1950s managed to have descendants paralyzed by such low risk.
How, at the same time, do we tolerate reckless authoritarian leadership making it much worse. Forced use of meaningless masks(I believe properly used and designed PPE make a difference). A year of education/socialization stolen from our children.
Putting the sick in extended care facilities, denying access to drugs that show significant promise and wrecking untold havoc on our economies. Be sensitive to those that are grieving, support efforts to save people, and protect the vulnerable.
We became strong with bravery, freedom, honest open debate and common sense. We seem to be ready to throw it all away. Get out of the way of reasonable treatments, open the economy back up before we pass the point our world cannot recover and get rid of the tyrants.
@TuckerCarlson @JordanSchachtel @FatEmperor @StevePhillipsMD @HawleyMO @BillGertz @jsolomonReports @johncardillo @RealSamFaddis @PhillDKline @RandPaul Freedom, self determination, moral judgment, and logic all are under attack. The rule of law and science are now weaponized.

Continuing failure of the Fauci and the NIH to investigate COVID19 treatments. Evidence is clear that secondary bacterial infections, out of control inflammation and micro-coagulation are all primary concerns.
Cytokine inflammation response has many potential treatments identified from other diseases. But where is the well funded research on this. Dexamethasone, aspirin and a few other drugs used but there are many possibilities. Great news is coming in on one, Fluvoxamine.
Work at Washington University in St. Louis highlighted this early. On going RCTs continue to study it. Work in other countries is verifying effectiveness.

@nay_sue1 @ScottAdamsSays I am an expert on masks and air flow, we get all exercised about masks and certain governmental mandates to wear them.
1) Like many aspects of this disease the definitive science on particle size distribution has not done,
@nay_sue1 @ScottAdamsSays 2) Duration of naked aerosolized particle viability is unknown,
3) Total lack of control on mask design makes it impossible to study what really works and what doesn’t,
4) We have no idea how much virus is required to catch the disease,
@nay_sue1 @ScottAdamsSays 5) Airflow is extraordinarily complicated and space configuration dependent,
6) Some particles would be stopped by almost any masks,
7) Some localized airflow characteristics around a person wearing a mask would tend to mitigate spread,

China has been fomenting conflict in the area attempting to further consolidate influence across the sub-region on India’s Eastern flank. Their direct strategic aim is to lessen India’s influence and surround them with Chinese aligned countries.
Immediate goal is to secure access to warm water ports and natural gas resources. They may eventually try to aggravate separatist sentiments in India’s NorthEastern states and take control of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands through Myanmar as their proxy.
They have successfully backed both sides in the ongoing separatist struggles within Myanmar. Although excused to maintain current pipeline and energy operations it has been a goal to Balkanize the area, openly discussed in Chinese strategic planning documents, for decades.

@gummibear737 @Covid19Crusher @LukeMor19529310 @MichaelPSenger @EduEngineer @EthicalSkeptic We have been in the grips of some sort of mass self delusion, up is called down and the minions scream, “yes!” A few deeply examined the good and the bad science, me included.
We presented statistics, graphs, logic, and the moral principles involved. An incredible furor was directed our way. We were doxxed, our social media accounts turned down or cancelled, some of us were even assigned personal trolls from big Pharma to heckle us.
This is not whining but these are simple facts. We engaged in debate and they tried to cancel us. Many noted epidemiologists blocked me instead of simply talking about math/statistics errors. We are the canaries laying dead or dying on the bottom of our cages in the coal mine.

I have gotten a number of questions about why we should be angry at Dr. Fauci, the NIH and CDC. The answer is simple, early in the pandemic a decision was made to do a full court press against the disease which looked like it had a mortality rate around 4% instead 0.1-0.3%.
This included massive industrial efforts to acquire PPE for first line workers, educate the public, initial lockdowns, study repurposing drugs and developing vaccines. Many of the efforts proved tremendously successful. But exploration of drug repurposing always seemed to lag.
Why was that? Early it was a conflict over the EUA for Remdesivir, a drug Dr. Fauci was personally vested in. Early reports of Hydroxychloroquine success in treating COVID19 threatened the EUA for Remdesivir. FDA EUA’s are only used if there is no safe alternatives.

@robert_spalding The CCP factions are real. I spent 10+ years living their. The mess we unleashed on the world is of the West’s own making. We did not spend the time to understand the Chinese people, their culture or their government. Most still do not, bother. But now they are transformed.
@robert_spalding Our own greed unleashed by naked capitalism devoid of National loyalty or sovereignty. Refusal to enforce the Law of the Sea, human rights conventions, or WTO. Refusal to intervene when they stole our IP or bought strategic technologies.
@robert_spalding We looked the other way when Al Gore accepted an illegal bag of cash on a windswept hill in California, we barely reacted to repeated hacking of our systems, we forced Yahoo and Cisco to accept a pittance for their IP stolen by Alibaba and Huawei.
