Re: Corona virus

Apologies for sounding a little forthright above but it’s not been a good few days and my patience has worn thin with talk that sounds (to me) even vaguely like it may be trivialising what is for some people a real and serious situation. I’m not saying any of you meant it, it’s just how I reacted.

I wrote a polite, considered but plain-speaking reply but lost it because I took too long. There’s a lot of distracting talk everywhere but when it comes down to it, what I really wanted to say is with all the govt/corporation/faction-bashing/espousing going on, please don’t lose focus of the simple things we can still all do at little cost or penalty to ourselves that help our fellow beings. It’s not about playing into anyone’s hands, just about respect for others. It helps even when others don’t do the same.

Re: Corona virus

Your response was very appropriate and it is shared by some of us at least. The situation sucks and instead of trying to fix it, governments are in cahoots with corporations to squeeze what’s left of us even more. C19 is not the cause but just a symptom of our way of life.

Re: Corona virus

There’s nothing wrong with being forthright, jakob. I think everyone can see that your heart’s in the right place, and it is very important we don’t lose sight of the fact that it is a dangerous virus, especially for the vulnerable. So taking the precautions is indeed something we should all keep doing.

I disagree with you that debates about stats and underlying agendas are irrelevant. The general public needs to know that all is not what it seems. But here on this forum we are not politicians or big influencers so for all practical purposes, those debates are pretty irrelevant. But I think it’s highly likely that all of us here are taking the precautions because we don’t want to harm anyone and those good habits are probably strongly ingrained now and will remain so for a long time to come, just like crossing the road or driving carefully.

Although recent posts about German-led movements to expose the scam side of the pandemic have made me feel much more positive, I haven’t swallowed the line that the pandemic is over althoug I do agree with most other things they are saying. However, it is still a dangerous virus and you are right to remind us of the basic care and respect we should all have for each other. For me personally, it’s been ingrained in my being for a long time (mmm… except towards politicians and the powers-that-be who should know better and have put themselves in positions of loftiness that invite the rest of us to knock them off their perches :)

Re: Corona virus

To get to the truth about the pandemic, I think this interview between Peter Breggin (breggin.com) and Peter A McCullough is as good as you’ll get. Both are now applying their vast knowledge and experience towards Covid-19, so you won’t hear conspiracy theories here, just detailed facts and understanding.

Breggin (aka the Conscience of Psychiatry) is possibly the most important person in recent years in reforming the treatment of mental illness, especially with regards to drugs.

McCullough is the world’s leading expert on heart and kidney research and, wrt opinions on covid, considers himself to be more broadly scientifically grounded than any person in the world and certainly more so than anyone in the media.

Re: Corona virus

Early covid treatment is fact-checked to my satisfaction. Please read it and if you can improve and promote its message, please do so. This information is hidden in plain sight and I believe our governments should have publicly broadcast this info many months ago. They have all this info at their fingertips. I have tried to get their attention and to get media attention but to no avail. I’m just a grain of sand on the beach, totally insignificant to those who trample over us.

It’s a beautiful day here, frosty with a fascinating mackerel sky and gorgeous shades of grey, blue and yellow. There’s always something to appreciate and be thankful for…
