Are we finally shifting from the dystopian madness of ZERO Covid in to acceptance of the virus’s endemicity and therefore living with it, or are tighter mandates, shutdowns and masks inevitable as Omicron numbers tick up and cowardly politicians once again draw from the just DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING so I don’t look bad playbook.
Regardless of which direction things go, it’s painfully clear that “public health” really has little to do with personal health and that you can’t rely on them for guidance. Seriously, the sooner you realize this, the more empowered you become, as you gain knowledge that might contradict “expert” opinion but actually makes sense for you and your family.
This is understandably difficult for many, because government health agencies did at one time do a lot of good work and so it’s only natural to look to them in a crisis. Something happened over years though, where an infusion of huge amounts of research dollars combined with the lobbying efforts of Big Pharma and the natural politicization of government agencies has created a mess of a system that’s doing more harm than good.
Case in point is the level of gaslighting we’ve suffered from people who are supposed to be working in our best interest. It’s been so incessant and exponentially brazen that it’s safer just to assume nearly everything you’ve heard from them to be false.
The most obvious example are with the C19 vaccines, which we were told by all the smart people would prevent infection from the virus and stop the spread in its tracks. Watch the video below for a recap:
Of course now they are saying just the opposite, that the vaccines were never designed to prevent infection and we are the crazy ones for thinking otherwise. Classic gaslighting.
Seems we were also similarly misled on the effectiveness of face masks, whoops.
“Cloth masks are not appropriate for this pandemic, it’s not appropriate for Omicron, it was not appropriate for Delta, Alpha or any of the previous variants either because we’re dealing with something that’s airborne.” -Dr. Lena Wen, Former Baltimore Health Comissioner
The most mind blowing and in my view disgusting saga of this whole sorry episode has been the abuse of faulty PCR tests that jack up positive “case” numbers due to dead viral matter that can linger in the nose for months, but that poses no danger of transmission.
Metrics to shut down businesses and schools were based off those #’s, causing millions of people to be tossed out of their jobs, kids to lose 2 years of schooling and basically turn life as we know it upside down.
The inaccuracy of PCR tests have been known since at least summer of 2020. In fact, I wrote a blog post referencing this called Pro Lockdown Politicians Remain Stuck In March. If I knew about it, you can be darn sure the CDC, Fauci, etc… did, yet they continued to push them anyway, causing a casedemic of meaningless positive test results. WHY?
On top of all this, the CDC still:
Artificially inflates Covid death numbers due to not differentiating between those having died of something else but WITH a positive test result for Covid and those dying BECAUSE OF Covid.
Denies natural immunity exists for the Covid recovered even though 100+ studies show it to be long lasting, robust and to actually prevent re infection.
Insists on mass vaccination of all age groups even though we know Covid risk is vastly stratified between age groups, causing vaccine induced side effects and even death in those whom Covid never posed a risk for.
Continues to needlessly create societal division and disruption by promoting the vaccines as a way to protect others, even though it’s abundantly clear that the vaccines do not prevent infection or transmittal and are probably dampening immune systems so vaccinated people are more apt to get the virus.
Fortunately the narrative is crumbling and the facade of successfully hiding from a virus is in shambles, but it’s more important than ever that people realize how badly government politicians and health agencies have failed them. We CANNOT let this happen again.
Covid and all its nonsense will be gone someday, hopefully sooner than later. The structure that allowed the disastrous response to it though is still solidly in place. By structure I mean both bad politicians making horrible decisions and a citizenry with an unhealthy reliance on government telling them what to do and how to think.
For example, California is STILL in an indefinite state of emergency and the people here started masking up again seconds after a stupid memo by a neurotic state health official came out that merely suggested indoor masking. Honestly it leaves me pretty disheartened for the future. There will always be some new emergency and people seem conditioned to just let this disaster happen all over again.
We’ve learned some good lessons from the pandemic on the dangers of government overreach, but unfortunately politicians have also discovered how easy it is to use fear to get people to willingly give away their civil liberties.
The best defense against that is an informed public who doesn’t take the word of “experts” over their own intuition of what’s best for themselves and that understands that government officials will always do what’s in their own best interest, not yours.
Hopefully the one good thing to come out of this is enough people have woken up to this to cause lasting change. We have a lot of work to do that’s for sure.
