🔥 The Fight is On 🔥

My letter to my favorite live music venue that just required proof of vaccination.

getrevue.co/profile/markch…
As a long time customer I am greatly disappointed by your decision (as reported in the Dispatch) to require proof of vaccination.
(1) This is a form of discrimination inconsistent with the ideals of Western Civilization.

THEM: Private businesses have a right to discriminate on the basis of vaccination status.

ME: Very “libertarian” of you. And if a business doesn’t wish to require proof of vaccination?

THEM: Then the state should force it.

ME:

THEM:

ME: Ah, *that* kind of libertarian.
Similar attitude to this exchange on censorship…

🔥 If you’re young & healthy, stop worrying about Covid!

RISKS are lower than that of flu.

BENEFITS of getting it are (a) you’re done, protected for many many years, and (b) you protect the infirm because you’re no longer a vector of transmission (unlike vaccines).
If you’re not young or not healthy, then a vaccination may make sense. Unless you’re too frail for it.

An interview with Professor Mark Crispin Miller making most of the same points I have been making for the last year and a half.

<thread>
@jordanschumway 1/ "I'm not suggesting in any way that COVID19 was a hoax. But it's worth noting that that characterization of what I'm arguing is a very handy way to discredit what I'm saying. "Oh, you think it was a hoax."
@jordanschumway 2/ "Well, no. I don't think it was a hoax, inasmuch as there was clearly some kind of illness with fairly unique symptoms that did really really hit certain populations in certain places in certain hospitals very hard. That's true."

0/ School closures “widened preexisting opportunity and achievement gaps, hitting historically disadvantaged students hardest.”

mckinsey.com/industries/pub…
1/ By the end of the 2020-21 school year, students were on average five months behind in maths and four months behind in reading.

Low incomes are twice as far behind as high incomes.
2/ Disproportionately impacts historical inequities, especially for Black students.

................... GET IT TRANSMIT SYMPTOMS

VAXXED yes yes no🙀
UNVAXXED yes yes yes

"Even vaxxed people may carry the virus in great amounts, perhaps even similar to those in unvaxxed people."

nytimes.com/2021/07/27/hea…
Given that the vaxxed can be infected and infectious -- and yet dangerously without symptoms! -- wouldn't there be a great need for Covid tests for any vaccinated person entering a public space? (...supposing one were the tyrannical type.)

What am I missing here?
🚨The real need for a vaccine pass is to identify the infected but asymptomatic!

WHAT SCIENCE IS AND IS NOT

Many people -- including, it seems, many scientists -- believe that "science" is an institution, and it thereby makes sense to use the phrase "The Science."

But science is not at all an institution.

A thread of Moments on what science is.

<thread>
[1] SIMILARITIES BETWEEN ETHICS & SCIENCE

As different as ethics and science may seem, they're both fundamentally about how one goes from "is" to "ought."

[2] SCIENCE IS ABOUT BEAUTY, NOT TRUTH

Most people don't appreciate that what drives many scientists is the same quest for beauty that drives artists.

It went from “the unvaccinated shall wear masks” to “the unvaccinated shall not enter society” real quick.
I wonder if it’s because they realize masks never worked to slow transmission, and only served as a virtue signal.

🔥Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Professor of Medicine, Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research...

"Once you've triggered fear as a response to assuage someone, to tell people here's what the data are actually saying is not enough, because they won't believe you."

<thread>
"People's fear takes over, their willingness to listen, and it creates this division that lasts. When the fear ultimately dissipates, I think it creates distrust that's very, very long lasting."
"It'll be much more difficult to give people good public health messages about a whole host of other things that are even more threatening to their health than COVID... because of the use of fear as a tactic to control people's behavior by public health."

“requiring masks for those who are fully vaccinated & asking those who are not vaccinated to avoid gatherings.”

I hadn’t even THOUGHT of that combination:

(1) Getting vax passports as the new virtue signal,

AND

(2) KEEPING the mask virtue signal.

Can’t have too many!

THEM: Vaccination passports are justified because it’s a widely accepted constitutional principle that autonomy ends where it brings harm to others.

ME: The principle that autonomy ends where it brings harm to others has never EVER been applied to a healthy asymptomatic person.

I’ve been asked by someone in government to help argue against vaccination passports. Here was my reply.

<thread>
Outline of argument…

(1) GET SOME SENSE OF PROPORTION

(2) ASYMPTOMATIC TRANSMISSION RARE

(3) PERCEPTIONS ARE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE INCORRECT

(4) THOSE *PERCEPTIONS* ARE WHAT GIVES MOMENTUM TO THE INTERVENTIONS, WHICH ARE INEFFECTIVE AND HAVE DEVASTATING SIDE-EFFECTS
(5) PUTTING BENEFITS OF VACCINES INTO PERSPECTIVE

(6) VAX PASSPORTS AKIN TO ABHORRENT DISCRIMINATION IN PAST

(7) THE FORCES PUSHING FOR VAX PASSPORTS ARE IN FACT DUE TO PSYCHO-SOCIETAL FORCES

This reply on IG concerning government/BigTech censorship represents 99% of the world’s view on free expression.

“In Holland the government is supposed to protect its citizens. I think the U.S. should do that too and fight misinformation. Facts, not opinions.”
My reply…

“The way you protect citizens is to let people discuss and debate. That’s how we discover the truth. Not via the government dictating what is the truth. THAT is the most dangerous thing a government can do.”
Person asks if I believe in all the sick and dead.

My response…

“Died “with” and died “of” are totally different. The “with Covid” tallies led to counts much much higher than we have for flu, because we counted Covid in a completely different fashion than we did for flu.”

Why? For linking to a 21WIRE article quoting Pulitzer nominee med journalist Jon Rappoport’s *opinion* piece from his own blog challenging the Delta variant & Covid narrative, and calling out the obvious propaganda onslaught.
@21WIRE @jack, you’ll be memorialized in history books for causing far greater damage than the pandemic, and even far greater than the draconian and useless interventions.
