1.Not long ago, the tobacco industry orchestrated a campaign dismissing health hazards from cigarettes. They corrupted science, media, law, and thus controlled public opinion.
Opposing scientists/physicians were silenced and scrutinized.
2. Any resemblance of the following citations to current events is purely coincidental.

3.“It is an obligation of the Tobacco Industry Research Committee at this time to remind the public of these essential points:

A. There is no conclusive scientific proof of a link between smoking and cancer.

B. Medical research points to many possible causes of cancer.”
4.“C. The millions of people who derive pleasure and satisfaction from smoking can be reassured that every scientific means will be used to get all the facts as soon as possible.”
5.More from the fascinating article: "If science had historically been dedicated to the making of new facts, the industry campaign now sought to develop specific strategies to “unmake” a scientific fact."
6.“In their work to control the science, the companies had also found that they had secured considerable advantages in the realms of media, law, and public opinion. All of this was dependent on maintaining the notions of controversy, uncertainty, and doubt.”
7.“Trust in science, confidence in the media, and the social responsibility of the corporate enterprise were all substantially harmed by the tobacco industry.”
8.“Their disinformation campaign, built on a foundation of conflicts of interest, demonstrates a series of problems that continue to evolve regarding the relationship between medical science and industrial influence.”
9.“In large measure, this story emerged only as a result of whistle blowers and litigation that led to the revelation of millions of pages of internal tobacco documents that both laid out this strategy and documented its implementation.” - END

1.פרסומים בכלי התקשורת וברשתות החברתיות מהדהדים בעיקר ידיעות מפחידות על הקורונה ומתעלמים במופגן מראיות המוכיחות שהמגפה אינה "כצעקתה". הציוצים הבאים מחדדים נקודות שכבר דשנו בהן הרבה, אבל חשוב להזכירן שוב.
2.חלק ניכר מהציבור הישראלי משוכנע שבאיטליה, ספרד, ברזיל וכדומה, התרחשו אסונות קולוסאליים מנגיף הקורונה. אינני מקל ראש במותם של אנשים מקורונה, אבל נתוני האמת המובאים כאן: worldometers.info/coronavirus/ סותרים לחלוטין את ההתרחשות של אסונות אלה. ממליץ לעיין בעצמכם בנתונים, ללא מתווכים.
3.אין *אף מדינה בעולם כולו* שבה מתו יותר מ-0.1% מהאוכלוסייה. כלומר, גם במדינה שבה התמותה הייתה הגבוהה ביותר (בלגיה), 99.91% מהאוכלוסייה שרדה את המגפה, ונראה שהתמותה שם דעכה. ברוב המכריע של המדינות התמותה נמוכה בהרבה. למשל, בשבדיה ה"מופקרת" שרדו יותר מ-99.94%. בישראל – 99.99%.
