As one who’s being muscled by NYU for urging thorough study of certain scientific findings, I find this news a tad ironic.
From 2009, but more relevant than ever.
From Michael Green:
It is difficult to overpraise the second gem in a row from Mercola, organizing in neat linear form what is happening to us and how. It’s much the stuff that Corbett did in his “Great Reset” video last week, but it is in print, readable, and clearly organized. I only wish that he hadn’t ended with Lord Sumption’s quote that states that the impetus for decisive action, and hence the totalitarian response, comes from the people; this is entirely contrary to the thrust of everything that precedes it in this and yesterday’s piece. The difficulty, as ever, is what I stated in my final essay: we are faced with the obstacle of telling an eagerly brainwashed people a deep truth essential to their future and well-being yet so inimical to their world-view and sensibility that we are deemed mad or speaking in tongues. So the debates about masks, vaccine safety-efficacy, schoolchildren infection rates/mortality, when to reopen businesses, etc. keeps spinning away from the central kaleidoscopic horror in which they are glistening distractions embedded in a false phantasmagoria.
He gets specific, bless him.
Meanwhile, Bruce Springsteen, who told Trump to “put on a fucking mask,” is threatening to move to Australia if Trump wins, either wholly unaware of what’s going on there, or an apologist for it.
From Mindy Stone:
Since the lockdown in Oregon in March, OSHA has been illegally fining businesses that don’t force employees & customers to violate their health needs and rights and MASK UP.
OR-OSHA’s proposed rule redefines “reasonable diligence” to make employers strictly liable, so that the agency can easily win a contested case. Despite clear direction from the Supreme Court and the legislature, OR-OSHA is unfairly shifting the burden of determining fault to employers. THIS WOULD MAKE BUSINESSES AND OREGON OSHA NOT LIABLE FOR ANY HARMS AGAINST YOU FOR FORCING MEDICAL DEVICES OR PROCEDURES ON CUSTOMERS WHO WANT TO CONDUCT BUSINESS WITH A BRICK AND MORTAR BUSINESS.
These are the latest statistics from Sweden, whose numbers always are precise and scrupulous.
Compare that view to the attack on Sweden in “The Scourge of Herd Immunity” (!) from the faux-left Counterpunch, a sturdy organ of the Lockdown Left:
Because, thanks to “the scourge of herd immunity,” Sweden has built up a strong defense against this virus, it will continue to do well, while Norway, Denmark and the other countries that locked down will keep seeing some real cases, with bumps in hospitalizations and death. This is something Counterpunch, just like the New York Times et al., does not want us to know, as it is zealously collaborating with the forces waging war on all humanity.
As for Sweden: Despite the recent strengthening of COVID “recommendations” in some local jurisdictions—a measure loudly misreported, by the Daily Mail and others, as backtracking in the face of an (imaginary) resurgence of “the virus”—life in Sweden is idyllic by the standard now prevailing in the West (and elsewhere). Here’s a message from Mihalis Nevradakis, who recently escaped to Sweden from the cattle-car once known as Greece:
“Obviously in this world anything can change at any time, but as of now, coming to Sweden has been perhaps the best decision of my life. My health has immediately improved, especially my mental health. Other than getting used to a new country, which is happening rather quickly, I am living a normal life. Going to restaurants, cafes, bars, parks, shops, cinemas, all with no interference whatsoever.”
