I have been warning of an impending dark age since before I joined Twitter in 2009. And I’m not alone. Covid has simply made the general rot so obvious that a large and growing minority can now see it.

The anti-rational darkness has been overtaking civilization for decades. Most didn’t notice what was replacing science because things continued to ~function, despite rampant corruption—both financial and intellectual. Anti-science now pervades every structure. Gov. Edu. Tech…
There is complete set of kill-stitches on truth. There is nothing power must accept. There is no way to force the matter other to go directly to the public on Joe Rogan’s show, or wherever else people who are too fed up to remain intimidated choose to gather.

Most working scientists don’t know they live in a dark age. Their work doesn’t run afoul of power in any major way. Most are good people. To them, the corruption looks like red tape. The truth-concessions feel small and normal. The grant game trains them to lie and rationalize.
The real scientists and doctors are the few who can’t help but remain scientific even when they do run up against money and power—they are stigmatized to the fringe, making it easy to mistake them for cranks—because the fringe is full of cranks in every age, dark or enlightened.
Validate the consensus and you can live and earn in peace. Use science to unmask the consensus and you’ll be banished to the fringe. You’ll have to earn in new—often public—ways. Then they’ll dismiss you as fringe grifter—no matter your accomplishments

It’s single-tweet simple.
This is not how anything is supposed to work. Scientists and doctors shouldn’t be going to the public. That’s not a reliable method.

But it beats the hell out of letting corrupt, pseudo-scientific bureaucrats gaslight, frighten and dazzle the public into self-harm.
#ThanksJoeRogan. Tens of millions of us love you, for very good reason. Please, take care of yourself. And don’t listen to The Death Eaters.

Dumbledore’s Army, Fellowship of the Ring, Galactica Actual, The Nebuchadnezzar, Rebel Alliance. Whichever. We’ve got your back.

Omicron could well be excellent news. Even Delta is very manageable with early treatment. Omicron looks to be even more so. And that could allow us to exit the pandemic as a large fraction of the population acquires immunity with mild disease. But there are caveats.
1. We know little yet of Omicron. It might not match our initial assessment.
2. Our leaders are intent on continual (re)vaccination of every last person irrespective of risk, medical need or epidemiological value. No reason to think that’ll change. Early treatment is key, yet DOA
3. We’re pushing a novel—likely functionally enhanced—virus around evolutionarily. No one can predict the outcome with confidence. ADE and original antigenic sin are still on the table. Our recklessness could drive SARS2 toward those with innate immunity (e.g. the healthy/young)

Privacy is now downstream of geography.
Even if this isn’t fully true, the fact that many of the world’s most insightful people appear to believe that it is true, and that many of them now act accordingly, will causes it to become effectively true. We let down our guard because maintaining it feels naive and wasteful.
This may be the biggest obstacle to rescuing the west. Whether we do or we don’t actually live in the panopticon, all sense making and change seeking is now done by geographically disbursed groups of people, each of which contain members who have given up on private communication

Humans are naturally persuaded by consensus. But this leaves us vulnerable to manipulation based on phony agreements established through corruption, coercion and the censorship of contrary voices. If you want to know what’s really going on, read the books they wish to burn.
This paper passed "peer review" and was then mysteriously removed from the web--without notice to the authors. What is clear is that someone or some thing doesn't want it read and discussed in public. We beat censorship by making it backfire: archive.is/mwcEG
The censoring publisher is Elsevier. That's the (family) name of Galileo's publishing house. The modern Elsevier (founded 1880) proclaims this heretical heritage proudly, along with its support of Jewish scholars being persecuted by the Nazis.

This has always been about life and death. I’ve been clear about that. Covid is a dangerous disease. I’ve said so often. But lethal as SARS-CoV2 is, the capture of public health, drug safety + academic medicine by an industry that’s fueled by disease makes it even more dangerous.
I take Mr. Lawrenson’s death seriously, but no more seriously than those of Jacob Clynick and Simone Scott.

I've repeatedly defended my critic’s good faith. I assumed they were trying to do the right thing, just as I am. I’m disgusted now by the selective weaponizing of tragedy.
.@EricRWeinstein has been telling me for months that I structured my point incorrectly, so that what I intend is not what is heard. He’s clearly right about that. He was also right that "snap-to-grid intellectualism" (his term) has taken over the public sense-making sphere.

Assume for the moment that Covid-vaccine hesitancy is unfounded: Now imagine there is a safe, cheap and effective alternative that actually could quickly reach and protect the world (including from breakthrough cases) but it is aggressively portrayed as dangerous and ineffective.
This isn’t a challenge @clairlemon. I’m hoping that she too will see the bigger picture.

Big Pharma plays dirty under normal circumstances. Given a crisis, immunity from liability and a major new (possibly permanent) market for novel products, we should anticipate deception.
Emergency Use Authorization requires no safe and effective alternative. And we are aggressively told none exists, and that the large body of evidence that suggests otherwise is all flawed.

Given the concentration of conflicts of interest on the Pharma side, proceed with caution.

The Oxford study looks designed to return weak, positive results allowing the ridiculous current narrative to move to higher ground while killing public interest in Ivermectin and preserving the EUAs on which Big Pharma’s Covid portfolio depends. Everyone wins, except the public.
Collecting more evidence is great. But current evidence is more than strong enough to administer this very safe drug to patients for whom no useful alternative exists. Awaiting more evidence is a delaying tactic. And testing on patients late in disease makes no sense. Obviously.
If you want to know how well the drug works to treat Covid, administer it on exposure or first symptoms.

Of course the elephant in the closet is the failure to use Ivermectin to PREVENT Covid. Want to save lives across the globe and drive SARS2 to extinction? #IvermectinWorks
