Paths for freedom and progress
Surreal dream August 2019
NOTICE ARCHIVE - 05/08/2021

August 2019, two years ago. Where were you? On work? Holiday? Party? Sports event? Restaurant?

Imagine if someone had come up to you two years ago and said something like what you soon will read. Should you laugh at that person? Be angry? Feel pity?

Well, close your eyes and return two years in your imagination. Put yourself where you were some nice day in August. Suddenly, a shadow, somebody starts to talk:

A virus more feared than any other disease in modern time will make the alert over all countries in the World, not an epidemy, but worse, a pandemic and a LOT of people will needlessly die.
Yet government data will eventually show the infected to have a 98.3% survival rate… and a survival rate of more than 99.8% for people under the age of 75 who aren’t morbidly obese. Despite this data, however, the virus will be treated as the worst thing in the history of the world by politicians, the media, and unelected public health officials.

Authorities will wage a crusade to eradicate the world of this virus, no matter the cost. They will systematically dismantle the core pillars of modern society, from private property rights to individual liberty. Some of the most advanced representative democracies in the world, like Australia, will literally deploy the military to the streets in order to keep people locked in their homes… essentially at gunpoint. The so called “democracies” will throw the mask of freedom and order you to put on another mask.

Governments will indebt themselves by tens of trillions of dollars, going so far as to pay people to stay at home and NOT work. Politicians will assume unlimited spending authority and use the pandemic as an excuse for every entitlement pet project they’ve ever conceived.  Inflation around the world will surge as a result of this orgy of debt and money printing, but central bankers will dismiss the data and pretend that everything is fine.

Meanwhile, the scientific community will lose all objectivity. They’ll claim, for example, that protesters against racial injustice are exempt from following public health lockdowns because of their moral righteousness. Yet simultaneously they’ll say that people protesting against public health lockdowns are a danger to society.

Pharmaceuticals companies will be given total immunity from prosecution and liability to develop a host of vaccines to combat the spread of the virus.  The initial clinical trial data will show significant promise in keeping people safe from severe infection. However long-term studies, by definition, will not exist for a number of years.

Despite these limitations, World governments will push these vaccines on the global population. Some will make vaccination mandatory; others will subjugate the unvaccinated population and take away their most basic freedoms until they submit. Personal choice will no longer be an option. Anyone who hesitates or dares ask a question will be ridiculed as a selfish murder by social media. And the Big Tech companies will squash intellectual dissident.

Even prize-winning, highly respected scientists will be censored for expressing views that don’t conform to the official narrative.  And then, after nearly 18 months, just when you think the pandemic is over, a new variant will emerge… and public health officials will go right back to the same policies all over again.

If someone had said this to you two years ago, you might have thought that person a completely delusional domes day prophet.  And yet, all of it has happened.
This isn’t a rant about vaccines, or masks, or lockdowns, or even government overreach. Nor am I trying to downplay the pandemic.  The key point today is that public health officials started from a premise that Covid is the WORST thing in the history of the world and must be eradicated, no matter the cost.

Now, in the private sector, responsible managers routinely look at the right metrics to determine if they’re on the right track, if their strategy is working, and if the benefits justify the costs. But that hasn’t happened here.

Where is the objective, dispassionate, data-driven discussion to examine whether the fundamental ‘Covid premise’ is valid, and whether the benefits justify the costs. A special note to the fact-checkers on all the Big Tech censorship committees: ALL of the data cited here is pulled directly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, website https://www.cdc.gov/ .
