How We Learned To Love Big Brother

05/16/2020199 Comments

When I started The Corbett Report in 2007, the idea that governments were watching and listening to everything we do was still wild-eyed conspiracy theory. Oh, sure, the fact that the NSA had been secretly and illegally wiretapping Americans since at least 9/11 was, by that point, mainstream news. But those “revelations” (which themselves were old news to conspiracy realists) were not enough to convince the dyed-in-the-wool coincidence theorists that the government was actively engaged in the electronic surveillance of everyone.

We conspiracy realists could (and did) talk till we were blue in the face about the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act and Stellar Wind and Room 641A. “The NSA is splitting off the internet trunk lines and running them into locked off server rooms, for crying out loud!” we shouted. “What more do you need to know?”

We talked to NSA whistleblowers like William Binney and Russ Tice. We learned about ThinThread and Trailblazer, and how mass collection of everything was ready and waiting to go before 9/11. We learned how the NSA was spying on high-ranking officials within the US government itself, including senior congressional leaders, high-ranking military generals, the entire Supreme Court, and even then-US Senator from Illinois and future President, Barack Obama.

We made note of the mainstream media’s own casual admissions of the power of the deep state’s spying tools. We observed how our phones are listening to us even when they’re “off.” How smart appliances will be used to spy on us in our own homes. How the FBI can go back and listen to a recording of any phone conversation you’ve had at any point in the past, even if you weren’t under surveillance.

“Big Brother is already here!” we warned. “1984 is today!”

And we were laughed at.

Fast forward to 2020, and now no one is laughing. Instead, everyone’s shrugging their shoulders: “Yeah, of course the government is tracking us. They have to! It’s for our own good!”

So what happened? . . .

    Touché! Bravissimo!

    Succinct, Elegant, To the point!

    And tragically, undeniably true.

    The snow job has now been successfully completed.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Amen.

    • eat my cake says:

      If the snow (den?) job has been done, then who are you? Are you typing from your igloo? Its true the snow drifts have never been so high.

      I’d say that the sudden shift in relation between leaders and followers (more tyranny) has blown the cover for a significant portion of the populous. Us useless eaters have been trundling about, interdependent, yet little did we know how weak the majority’s self reliance was, or how thoroughly the capacity to have original thoughts has been numbed. Perhaps its those that cannot break free of the Simon-says game that are indeed owned, as you say, “completely”, or just enough.

      • manbearpig says:

        “Us useless eaters” speak for yourself.

        “the Simon-says game” great image.

        just enough is enough. unfortunately.

        • eat my cake says:

          I’m guessing that part of successfully squaring off face to face with a demonic force will include owning our complicity. By much of what we choose to do/use, we feed the obstacle. Use electricity, flush toilets, tapping ones and zeros at each other all day, M.Moores new film is a good punch in the guts on this point.

          Our hunger for material manipulations has entrained us, into bed, and to flirting with the very beast that would like to rape us. hunger for push button mod-cons, hot water at the flick of a wrist, for food without having touched soil, for travel in minutes what used to take a day, or hours to cross an ocean that used to take a month to sail,, but at what real environmental cost?

          The need to admit to being part of the problem is how we earn the “useless eater” name.

          • manbearpig says:

            It sounds like you’re suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

            If your society is being held captive by a bunch of monopolistic elites that make it more or less obligatory for you to grow up “in the system” ’cause your parents were already “in the system” and as a kid ubjected to an industrial education and the omnipresent mind-numbing media, you couldn’t recognize the underbelly of the beast, how’re you supposed to just suddenly give up washing with hot water, using computers and eating food you’ve neither grown nor hunted?

            I agree that people buy too much on credit, myself included, but on the other hand, if you want to go to university for one reason or another you’re mercilessly strangle-tied to a bank anyway and those were just the “normal” rules of society. Then, when it becomes impossible to respect the normal societal rules, or major skyscrapers start inexplicably evaporating into clouds of nanodust, or one day an alleged virus makes it illegal for you to leave your home you start to question those normal rules… well then… you gotta start making some tough choices about which of your principles your gonna begin by living by… and then gradually maybe wean yourself off the grid as much as you can hoping your kids aren’t at an expensive university, or needing expensive health care etc.

            I don’t buy into this self-degrading epithet of “useless eater” nor the guilt-tripping incitation to give up the comfort modern life offers – everyone in the world should have access to the basic comforts and hygiene that “developped countries” have: and yea, the fortunes of said countries were built on the rape and pillage not only of the rest of the world but through the shameless exploitation of their domestic populations in the form of slave labour, engineered booms and busts, artificial scarcity etc. Lots of folks would like to do good and help others, some at considerable personal cost, but even the Humanitarian agencies are in the pockets of the owners of society as are the governments of many of those countries “in need”.

            The environment is an important issue, but first and foremost with regards to human health and well-being and not for the sake of “the environment itself”. Working in the interests of people and not in the interests of a technocratic elite could certainly give rise to technological innovation that would allow international travel and manufacturing, (not massive overproduction that’s subsequently left undistributed and then destroyed), but according to basic laws of supply and demand rather than calculated to make maximum dividends for a minority of contributors while keeping a minimum labourforce overworked, stressed and compliant to the point of burn-out.

            It is not constructive to cultivate contempt for yourself. Seeing yourself as a “useless eater” only helps those who seek to keep you compliant by making you renounce your own humanity as you’re forced into some austere flaggelation for some original sin of their own fabrication.

            • Control Savvy says:

              Well said. I’m copying and pasting it as a reply to anyone who goes on a self-flagellating rampage. Couldn’t say it better. I will, of course acknowledge the source as “manbearpig”.

              • manbearpig says:

                Uh… YEA!Wow! Sure guys! No problem! Pleasure’s all mine! jeepers. blushin’ under my beard… I got no copyrights on this philosophy though. just love and respect creation as much as possible. and You’re part of that creation!

            • eat my cake says:

              sure,
              You describe being entrained and used by a bent system, but it doesnt make the fact of how we support the very thing that is using us go away, I suppose thats “stockholmish”, Perhaps when I’m pumping fuel into the car, I’m agreeing with the idea of polluting a bit for a certain convenience,, I dont agree with the demonic harvesting of our species, and but cant avoid seeing a hypocracy. Is it even possible to walk ones talk?

              I dont usually have much “self-contempt”, though it can spike occasionally. The paradoxical nature of (as you say) being raised these days, trying to make sense of the miracle of life vs relentness manipulations towards death (or is it “2nd birth”), has taught me that at least a little self effacing can help: mental health through humility.

              For me, admitting to being a brick in the very wall I’m trying to demolish, is less “austere flagellation” and more keeping it real. I agree with what you say, but all this finger pointing at the super psychotic needs a personal context, so we can choose to be part of the clean-up. does everyone deserve food shelter and help, of course, and to fly around the globe like it was just another bus ride? maybe not.

              (https://www.flightradar24.com/data/statistics)

              The shut down has given good evidence of how human busy-ness may, in today’s way, be a big contributing factor: marginal health + retarded intelligence = abusability

              here’s Dr Zach Bush & del bigtree with an over-arching perspective on all viral activity and complex significance of the Biome, which I think makes a good case for less busy-ness.

              (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RAtFBvKrVw&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR31oIIYVXs2mEp9zm4IUDxGxw7_hKH8ZlgkBVyLA_Q3O).

              In the mean time I suggest that our way out of the mysterious injustice of these days, along with accurate naming of the wrongs, will be to minimize our individual footprints.

              peace

              and, you wrote:
              “The environment is an important issue, but first and foremost with regards to human health and well-being and not for the sake of “the environment itself”.”

              I give you benefit of doubt, but it reads like, “humans” are somehow different or separate from “the environment”? we aint.

              trees in the fall are fruiting, The earth in these eons is peopling. we are the environment. To miss, or deny the complete interdependence or continuum-symbiosis is a symptom of human dis-ease.

              • manbearpig says:

                yes. we are part of the environment which is why it makes no sense to oppose humans with environment as in “we must stop having babies to save the environment”, “we must go back to mediaeval living to save the planet”, etc.

                How’s this for an image of “useless eaters”:

                not too sure who you are quoting about not having kids or medevil living,, I actually met a eugenicist, who simply refused to get the suicidal nature of his mind..

                I am sad for those I see who are duped daily into banality, its exhausting, occasionally entertaining, but a most perplexing situation? the spell needs a remedy.

    “Conspiracy realists,“ nice. The use of Big Brother” casts a nice shadow for me. I have big sisters, no brothers and I’ve many recollections of my childhood friend’s big brothers, they were sadistic bullies all. I can still hear the hollow “tunk” of a back being punched. No sir, I don’t like them.

  3. hidetora says:

    Make sure you listen to the grown-ups at the WHO, Bill Gates and all the other technocrats that know what is best for *all of us*, unlike all you selfish unwashed masses. Also be sure to snitch on everyone that you catch sneezing.

    The argument is always the same and the myths are all similar, “national or public security”, “public health”, “common good”, etc. are all used to violate our individual (real) rights and to destroy our private security, private health and private well-being to the point that no one is safe or healthy.

    here’s another way to show your love & subservience… an absolutely amazing opportunity to work for big brother: Free contract tracing course + certificate from Coursera
    https://www.coursera.org/learn/covid-19-contact-tracing?edocomorp=covid-19-contact-tracing

    • victoria says:

      oops, sorry to disappoint, i was too excited when commenting!! its not a job offer, but what fun…

      “In this introductory course, students will learn about the science of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the clinical presentation of COVID-19, and the evidence for how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person-to-person and why contact tracing can be such an effective public health intervention. Students will learn about how contact tracing is done, including how to build rapport with cases, identify their contacts, and support both cases and their contacts to stop transmission in their communities. The course will also cover several important ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine. Finally, the course will identify some of the most common barriers to contact tracing efforts — along with strategies to overcome them.”

      • Fawlty Towers says:

        It’s amazing how quickly the elites come up with these courses!

        In such a short period, when the WHO hasn’t even let the ink dry, as to what is the correct approach to be taking vis-a-vis Covid-19, these charlatans have already set up courses to train the masses on correct contact tracing techniques!

        Makes you wonder if the courses weren’t set up and ready to go before the CV outbreak?

        I think I’m going to open up a school on correct social distancing techniques.
        I’ll have a course for beginners, intermediates and advanced students.
        I should be able to make a killing. 🙂

          excuse my initial outburst, i was most distressed by your mention of the WHO ~ whom i hold in high esteem for all the amazing good works they do globally, & in my formative years left an indelible impression. furthermore, horror of horrors… your crazy conspiracy theory question, & obvious disdain for the elite’s plans… whereas, i am sure the powers that should be always hv our best interest in mind & act accordingly.

          anyhoo, i admit im a masochist, & im very much interested in your advanced correct social distancing course, Fawlty Towers. pls post details when available, ’twill be a most excellent way to spend my gubbermint slave money.

            Oooh, victoria, your “initial outburst” may’ve hurt Fawlty’s feelings. 🙂

            Where are you, Fawlty?

            I’ll sign up for your beginner’s course in anti-social behavior, ‘cuz I keep forgetting to go out of my way when I see a friendly neighbor, much less a total stranger, out for a stroll on the same narrow sidewalk I’m occupying.

      • CantBelieveEverythingIHear says:

        Seriously? The “science of SARS-CoV-2”, the “evidence”, “how to build rapport”, “ethical considerations”, “contact tracing”, isolation, and quarantine. Please, people, let me “educate” you on my “truth” and just how “important” it is and how it’s “helping” people and how anyone who disagrees or questions ANYthing is insane. If you truly “care” and want to be “ethical”, then just leave me the heck alone and keep me out of the crap you’ve concocted and are constantly bombarding the public with. It’s like the world, in the blink of an eye, has gone batshit crazy. How can people so adamantly believe the extremely faulty and unethical stuff that’s being broadcast to them 24×7. Oh, never mind… I’m told that people are DYING out there (uh, duh… it’s a natural part of life… and the numbers of people dying have not significantly increased since last year… so, why is this a “pandemic”… or, more like, a panic-demic?)… *sigh*

      “There will be in the next generation or so a method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”

          Even when one isn’t enlightened, there is still a tendency to want to be. But how can one want something when one doesn’t know what it is? (aren’t cats curiously like that?).

          therefore, we have a wild card to play and its backed up by an urge far greater than any dominator has any clue of. When “liberty” is taken it hurts; and when ones whole life has been without liberty, and so theres nothing to be taken away, I’d bet it still hurts. What we call “liberty” is a right/obligation and privilege as primal as breath.

  5. robert.t says:

    I can remember back to the time before HK reunification. Anyone expressing doubts as to the benefits of the Chinese miracle and the rise of the Asian Tigers was deemed a racist. Australia’s then PM Keating, whose mentor and idol was Suharto, was particularly sharp on the subject. (Nobody could work out how Keating got so rich, but few asked aloud.)

    Of course, after the 1997 financial collapse if you expressed the same doubts about the Tigers you were called…a newsreader! But the unquestioning attitude to the transfer of production out of the developed West was maintained for a long time. Nimble-fingered, low-paid Asians would make all our stuff and we would become something called, um, service economies (or something). Win-win. In short, we were NEVER at war with Eastasia. Trudeau could comfortably declare his complete admiration for the Chinese model only a few years back.

    Now all the production and tech has made its way east and we are at last told the we have ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia. Those rotten Chicoms and their bat soup!

    But thank God for whistleblowers like Snowden and Assange who can tell us how bad things are. We wouldn’t be frightened otherwise. Fortunately, the Covid and 9/11 narratives are all on the level. Otherwise Ed and Julian would have told us, right?

      Bill Gates Is Targeted by Social-Media Mobs
      Coronavirus crisis intensifies conspiracy theories and online harassment of Microsoft co-founder

      Bill Gates last week posted a three-second video on Instagram of himself hanging a sign in a window reading “Thank you health care workers.” Over the following days, the post was pelted with hundreds of thousands of comments painting Mr. Gates as partisan, accusing him of crimes against humanity and linking him to various conspiracy theories involving vaccines, the World Health Organization and implanted microchips.
      As one of the richest men on earth and a vocal public-health advocate, Mr. Gates has long been a target for online trolls. But in recent weeks, the social-media attacks against the Microsoft Corp. co-founder have intensified and come from a broad range of combatants including antivaccine groups and conspiracy theorists who link the novel coronavirus with fast wireless technology known as 5G, a theory that has been debunked.
      The attacks accelerated this week after Mr. Gates criticized the U.S. decision to halt funding to the WHO, a decision the Trump administration said was due to the organization’s handling of the pandemic. His family philanthropy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is the second-largest financial backer of the WHO after the U.S.
      In the 24 hours after Mr. Gates’s comments, his Twitter account was mentioned at least 270,000 times—more than 30 times more than average—mainly by angry supporters of President Trump, according to Clemson University researchers. Mr. Gates’s Instagram post from April 5 drew an additional 45,000 comments in that same 24-hour period. The post now has more than 225,000 comments.
      Social-media platforms remain fertile ground for virus-related conspiracies and online harassment, despite repeated pledges by the companies to crack down on such activity. The episode underscores the tense, politicized nature of debates around the new coronavirus, which experts at times have struggled to explain. Millions of Americans have lost jobs in the pandemic, making government handling of the crisis intensely personal.
      “I’ve never seen a time where more mis- and disinformation has flowed than this coronavirus period,” said Sam Woolley, an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin who has studied disinformation for nearly a decade.
      tbc

      • 9tH says:

        Some antivaccine activists and conspiracy-minded posters encouraged their followers across social media to attack Mr. Gates on Instagram, a form of harassment called “brigading” in which people coordinate attacks and hijack conversations online, according to a review of accounts. This week, one Instagram account told its 52,000 followers that “it wouldn’t be a bad thing for all of us to go visit Bill Gates Instagram and let him know what you think.”
        Researchers say many of the conspiracy claims are amplified by what appear to be automated accounts, or bots, which platforms have promised to minimize.
        “Whenever science intervenes to stop a disease, there’s often an adjacent outbreak of misinformation,” said Mark Suzman, CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. “These falsehoods can spread faster than the disease itself—and cause real harm,” he said.
        “Covid-19 is infectious and deadly enough. We don’t need misinformation to make it even deadlier,” he added. “Right now, one of the best things we can do to stop the spread of this disease is spread the facts.”
        A spokeswoman for Facebook Inc., which owns Instagram, said the company is “looking at this behavior carefully to determine whether it violates our policies. People on our services are allowed to speak freely, and do so in an organized way, but we remove accounts that are fake or designed to mislead.”
        The company also said Thursday that it would start notifying users who engaged with misinformation on its platforms, and would guide those individuals to more authoritative resources, including the WHO.
        Mr. Gates has appeared on television and talk shows such as The Daily Show to discuss the pandemic and the ways it might change daily life. The Gates Foundation has committed about $250 million to research testing and treatments for the new coronavirus.
        Last month, Mr. Gates did a question-and-answer session on Reddit during which he predicted that people would need “some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.”
        Shortly after, social-media posts appeared falsely claiming that Mr. Gates wanted to implant microchips in people, according to several Facebook fact-checkers who flagged the claims as false.
        Misinformation about Mr. Gates started to ramp up last week, said Rory Smith, a research manager at First Draft, which supports research into online misinformation campaigns and is supported by companies including Facebook and Alphabet Inc.’s Google. Researchers at the nonprofit said they noticed more conspiracy theories within Facebook and WhatsApp groups across some African countries. Some of the posts read, “avoid wearing blue masks” because of their supposed affiliation with Gates Foundation.
        tbc

        • 9tH says:

          Another post in French started circulating urging all Africans to avoid vaccines made by Mr. Gates, the researchers found. The post inaccurately attributed the advice to Didier Raoult, a French doctor who has sparked controversy recently over the use of an antimalarial drug to treat Covid-19, they said. Mr. Raoult couldn’t be reached for comment.
          On Twitter, several people with large followings said Mr. Gates was in cahoots with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and senior member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, according to VineSight, a startup that hunts for disinformation on social media. Dr. Fauci has been accused, without evidence, by right-wing activists and conspiracy theorists of secretly undermining Mr. Trump’s efforts as part of a so-called Deep State within the U.S. government.
          Some popular accounts on YouTube, owned by Alphabet, also have pushed theories about Mr. Gates and Dr. Fauci. Shiva Ayyadurai, a Republican Senate candidate from Massachusetts, was featured in one such video this week, racking up 6.6 million views, claiming that Dr. Fauci was part of the Deep State and plotting with Mr. Gates. Mr. Ayyadurai didn’t respond to a request for comment.
          Last month, London’s Institute of Strategic Dialogue said in a report that YouTube videos and comment sections formed “a hub for coronavirus conspiracy theories.”
          The Wall Street Journal flagged three videos sharing conspiracy theories about Mr. Gates to YouTube. The company removed one of the videos, which equated coronavirus with the common flu. YouTube said the other two videos were considered borderline and wouldn’t be featured prominently in search and recommendations.
          In separate statements, YouTube and Twitter said they are working harder to remove or minimize coronavirus misinformation from their platforms. Twitter said it would remove conspiratorial posts found to be spread through coordinated, manipulated behavior.
          “We’re prioritizing the removal of Covid-19 content when it has a call to action that could potentially cause harm,” a Twitter spokeswoman said. “We will not take enforcement action on every tweet that contains incomplete or disputed information about Covid-19.”
          Tweets targeting Mr. Gates often originate from legitimate accounts but those posts are then amplified by what appear to be automated accounts, or bots, according to VineSight. On some popular tweets, bots may account for between half and two-thirds of the retweets, according to VineSight.
          Mr. Gates’ defense of the WHO this week kicked up a new wave of online attacks. Trolls flooded Mr. Gates’ other Instagram posts, going back to his first Instagram message in August 2017. They also swarmed the accounts of some celebrities who had shared content about Mr. Gates, including the comedian Ellen DeGeneres and Daily Show host Trevor Noah.

    As cathartic as the recommended video featuring Tucker Carlson is, what’s beneath the surface? Playing the “right” dialectic, what’s their goal? To get the serfs to rise up and demand politicians abide by the rules imposed on everybody else? Wrong answer. Is it to help us virtually vent steam? Lull us into believing they’re fighting for us? To keep us divided, blue vs red as with climate change, now viruses? All of the above?

    • scpat says:

      Very well put pearl. The underlying message(s) of Tucker video are exactly what you said. And they are the wrong answer, as you say.

It allows us the laziness to use a word (not intended for the purpose or meaning) or someones name to sum up an idea that would normally need to be articulated. There are foreign speakers that try with such effort and enthusiasm to learn English and they speak at a higher level than the natives. Yet Americans don’t even speak English or respect the language. We speak only a small portion of our language probably less than the unused portion of our brains. But yet the population think they are clever when their made up word trends on twitter or where ever. They pride themselves on stupidity. I can almost hear Herzen talking about the masses right now…

        • Jed says:

          Hello Nail, my name is Jim. Regarding your comments about Newspeak, using a word to sum up an idea that would need to be articulated with many words is not necessarily a bad thing, only when the idea itself has been dumbed down — I see this with acronyms — used to express conditions that require preconceived courses of action, no thought required, just follow the plan.
          Words themselves are symbols that express thoughts, but whose? When you’re using other people’s thoughts to express your ideas, at what point are the ideas really yours? When you create “slang” the thought is more your own. When you copy slang, you’re still using someone else’s thought just like when you’re speaking the language, “at a higher level.”
          In English, a word is accepted into the language if it’s been used a bunch of times, as opposed to some other languages that exclude new words or recreate the words to the satisfaction of their language academy, their experts.
          This keeps English a dynamic language, and its speakers dynamic thinkers, and I love it, respect it and speak it and, I live in the US. You stated, “Yet Americans don’t even speak English or respect the language,” and you are mostly correct as most Americans speak Portuguese or Spanish. Many NORTH Americans speak English. I don’t know where you are Nail, but I’m gonna guess that you are as surrounded by mind numbing normies as I am, so, good luck and all the best. Thanks for your comment Nail, you hit a nerve and made me think.

          • nail says:

            Hi Jim!
            Are we really being dynamic or just lazy…
            Is it the not inventors that are the only ones innovating? “Internet” for instance with innovation. As far as an example of lazy “Selfie” for instance short for self portrait. Sounds horrible to my ears …but this I have come to accept as normal. Is selfie different from mostest, and goodthink, .
            If the Borg and the crew of the Enterprise ran around saying “oh snap” “Hey BAE” that would just be BAD writting and ridiculous.
            This subject has so many facets , it is way more complex than I can get into at this moment.
            An artistic perspective would say it is all subjective and language gets a creative license…slang in particular.( I’ll give it that)
            Or like modern art where as an artist spreading feces on a canvas can be called ‘dynamic’ and considered Degas equal.
            In that case de-evolution and regression of language.
            In my opinion much of the population is lazy to learn anything new and go for easy rather than really look into things..or attempt to think for themselves. The easiest is to follow trendy language..Then if your Dynamic people were so abundant you would not describe your surrounding fellow citizens as “mind-numbing normies..’ Learning takes a long time. I am still learning…Vocabulary and otherwise…And This could be argued for days …One day we will Slang and Lazy the Language as we know it Dead. I am sure there is much you have overlooked and so have I.

        Note this Federal Bill which should be Void by the fact that it violates half of the “Bill of Rights” contains $100 Billion to pay off Snitches throughout the USA.
        It reminds me of when they paid Snitches in Afghanistan $25,000 for each person they claimed was a “Terrorists”. I think they were able to convict one of the 800 “Suspects” they held at GEMO in a secret military trial. Most were released after 10 years of inhuman treatment, but only if they agreed to sign a Statement Admitting Guilt.
        18 years ago, “We the People” should have gotten off our Asses and stood up against those Crimes Against Humanity, now this “Get paid to Snitch” evil is being turned on us by a government we would be a fool to trust.

    I will start this comment with a quote extracted from an article by Lionel Shriver that I read today:

    We’re told that to get into a sparsely populated lift, we may have to make a reservation on an app. But never fear. I guess we could always throw ourselves off the balcony instead. Why, with the masky, glovey, get-away-from-me future we’re all facing, taking that shortest route to the pavement starts to appeal.

    One of the things that we are witnessing that have impressed me the most (and oh boy, there have been so many crazy things going on!) is the “mask phenomenon”. There is almost nothing that makes me feel more anxious about the future than the possibility of seeing a majority of masked drones abusing others who refuse to use them (something that is already happening). Even if they don’t abuse of others, the only sight of faceless people makes me feel extremely sad.

    That’s why I would like to know what is the experience that you have about this phenomenon in your countries, to see how homogeneous is it and if there are different behaviours amongst areas.

    SPAIN: I can’t say very much about my country because, for a few reasons, I haven’t gone inside any supermarket or store, so I haven’t been told anything for not wearing mask. I have been outside of these places and I have seen most of the people wearing masks and gloves, even while driving. My family have told me that EVERYBODY wears masks inside supermarkets even if they are not mandatory at this moment. In my city (not a big one), depending on the time of the day, around 50-80% of people wear mask and gloves, but I don’t see any kind of bad reaction from one group against the other because many times one masked person speaks normally (with social distancing, of course) with other without this “cloth/device”.

    In the internet, though, things are different and I see a much bigger polarization and manipulation about the benefits or wearing masks (as far as I am concerned, NO BENEFIT). In fact, although I haven’t been able to verify it, Soros seems to be behind one “fact-check” Spanish website which clearly defends wearing masks at all times.

    At this moment this is all that comes to my mind.

    I would love to read your experiences about this topic.

    • robert.t says:

      Masks are good. Otherwise people would have to walk around with a sign round their necks saying: I AM AN IMPRESSIONABLE, MEDIA-SATURATED WANKER AND WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF I COULD BE THE LAST ONE SHOT.

      • Fawlty Towers says:

        Yes, if there is any benefit at all for the wearing of masks, it is that they are an easy identifier of normies!

        I live in a small but fairly progressive city, and still the mask wearers number around 50%. As the Covid numbers have stabilized in recent weeks that number has decreased somewhat.

      • amenetusien says:

        I agree with you and Fawlty Towers. This is the only positive thing I have noticed from this phenomenon. When I walk or drive and I see people without masks I think: “nice, a human being (or a group of them)!”.

      Dallas, Texas area.
      Yesterday I went to a small family run Computer shop to get this ole clunker to display Word Documents again. Every May I have to do this. No masks…none of us. The guys told me business was weak, but are very concerned about what the future might entail for the whole of society. They are originally from somewhere in the middle east.

      On the way back home, I swung by a grocery store to grab a few things.
      Everyone in the store had a mask on that I could see, but for me.
      There was a banner out front, hung on a low fencing to direct customers to follow entry designs. It had some kind of notice which said to wear masks when shopping.

      I checked myself out at the self serve scanning checkout, which had a notice: “We no longer accept cash.”
      As I was rolling my buggy out, I noticed another man checking out. He did not have a mask on.

      In the parking lot, I walked over to his pickup truck as he was getting in. I said, “I want to thank you for NOT wearing a mask.” We chatted briefly. I remarked, “The World has gone insane.”
      He agreed firmly and loudly: “It IS insane!”

      A warm light rain was falling this morning. A toad out my opened back door was croaking for a lover.
      I needed to grab some ground coffee for tomorrow.
      Again, I entered the grocery store, a different one from yesterday, but larger and with more people.
      Everyone, but me had a mask on.

      One of these days, I will probably run into this…

        Thanks HRS for your experience. You have a talent for explaining daily stories! I felt like reading a fragment of a novel.

        I totally share your joy for talking with someone not wearing masks. In the last two weeks I have spoken with two neighbours without mask and one of them said that he wasn’t following many of the lockdown rules and the other one even talked to me about “conspiracy theories” (after a few minutes of probing one another about our way of thinking on this topic) and told me two interesting thoughts: 1) she prefered to die than to live in a masked, social-distancing world and 2) that she won’t get any vaccine.

        The best thing about this last neightbour is that her husband is a Policeman, so he is aware for sure about his wife ideas (and you know the power of many women to influence their husbands).

        Hello HRS. Long time subscriber, second time commenting. Thanks for news of Dallas. I am actually making a rare comment to tell you how different it is here in West Texas, Lubbock.

        I would say about 20% of people are wearing masks here. Of course any business you walk into, the employees are being forced to wear them, which they are not happy about as I talk to everyone about it. I went into a store yesterday and much to my surprise not one employee was wearing one. I stopped to talk to an elderly man that works there and told him how happy I was to see no one wearing masks. He said a doctor owned the business and made it optional, everyone refused.

        We of course have the one way isle markings, which I purposely go down the wrong isle, and stand here tags, which I purposely do not stand on. Overall though people are pretty relaxed, despite our supposed “high case numbers.”

In fact, whenever I see those rare humans with actual noses and mouths on their intelligent faces walking the aisles of Kroger and H-E-B, I have to restrain myself from hugging and high-fiving them!

      i live in belgium atm, masks are mandatory on public transport since 2 weeks. Other than that, in the hood i live in, it is still a minority who wears them and i have seen people who wore them before but now not anymore.. I think in general, half of the country is trying to be good citizens, ‘do the right thing’.
      I noticed they are trying to normalize wearing masks, by promoting eye-make-up, ‘trikinies’=matching bikini/mask and flowery or ‘cool’ patterns and other ridiculous fashion. I read about a person trying to iron the masks, something the distributing city-council didn’t mention, these masks melt when ironed. Hahahaaa! Crazy people!

      I don’t wear them, unless i take bus or train, to avoid the fines, then i use my old bandana, just like i used to do on demo’s. Makes the cops’ eyes roll out of their sockets almost. I just eyeball back at them. To think that they prohibited masking some years ago..

      It’s a tragi-comedy.

      • amenetusien says:

        Thanks for sharing what happens in Belgium! You have made me realize that masks are also mandatory in Spain for public transportation, but since I never use it I can’t say if everyone follow the rules or not (I guess they do for the same reason than you).

        Oh this is sooo disturbing! I have also realized about how people (mostly women) are wearing masks with designs… And of course taking selfies. Companies and governments are trying to normalize, as you say, this situation. I wonder if from now on every time someone gets a cold they will wear a mask like many Asian countries do.

        Soon I have to renew my Passport and if police requires me to go to the Police station with mask I might use something like this. I wonder what they would the tell me…

        • 9tH says:

          Hahahah! I have thought about using one like that for laughs. Police may think you are a college of the guardia civil? Just kidding..

          Can’t help but wonder if these mouthmasks prevent facial recognition or not?

          • amenetusien says:

            If I use it I will tell you. I doubt that I would because I am shy, but it would be so funny! Hahaha, maybe they think I am a terrorist, so I better don’t take this risk…

            Hmm, don’t believe in what I am going to say because I read this news very fast because I was searching for another thing, but I think that I read that Apple Face recognition didn’t work with mask, but Android did. If this is true, it doesn’t mean that Android can detect our face even with masks. It could be that they facial recognition system is not so secure as people might think (many false positives, like the PCR for the coronavirus :D)

            • 9tH says:

              Hard to know what is real about what they tell the public in this case. I figure they would rather have us believe it still works, even if it doesn’t.

      In my small town in Ireland about 70% of the people I see wear masks, while driving too. 90-95% are social distancing and jump back if I forget and get too close. Social distancing is mandatory and masks are recommended as they “help stop the spread of the asymptomatic” but not mandatory yet. I did get stick from a neighbour in the early days for “not protecting myself” (and her as she is “cocooning” and I do her shopping). She still wears her mask but doesn’t bother me about it anymore. I was in the pharmacy the other day where one person is allowed in at a time and there is a perspex shield just in from the door. Doorman was masked and gloved. Lady behind the perspex was masked and gloved. And everyone else was down the back of the shop talking with no masks or distancing. I have seen far more bad reactions from one group to another about social distancing and using cash than masks. I always get looks or asked “have you not got a bank account?” for using cash.

      • amenetusien says:

        Small town in Ireland… I am sure it’s beautiful! One of my dreams is to travel around Scotland and Ireland backpacking. I hope I can do it someday.

        Very interesting to see that in a little town so many people wear masks. I would have thought that the opposite would occur… Here social distancing is quite a phenomenon too. Yesterday I saw from my balcony two neighbours talking, one with mask and the other without, but with a distance of more than 3m between them (of course I could hear the whole conversation).

        Do they really ask you about having a bank account? So disrespectful! They don’t even deserve an excuse, which could easily be that your card is broken.

        • madzz says:

          Oh I would love to travel Scotland too. Ireland is beautiful, west coast especially but I am biased!
          I was suprised to see so many down here being obedient too… But there is still a handful of us down here who can smell the rats. Most of the local taxi drivers are running with limited distance, using cash and no masks. Any I have spoken to don’t believe the hype. A good amount of my friends are skeptical and not really following the “rules”. And there’s a baker out selling his bread on the street everytime I am in town. Gardaí have tried relentlessly to move him due to locals complaining about him but he is still there! He knows the laws here are not enforceable laws and has his laptop with the page open and refreshes it whenever he gets hassled!

      I think masks are kinda a good idea- and wish people who have colds would wear them…. it would also be cool to mess with the facial recognition and surveillance cameras

      • amenetusien says:

        Duck,

        Of course I am not saying that people can’t wear masks. They are free to do what they want. What I am completely against is the fact that in many countries there is growing movement and propaganda against people without and in favor of people with masks at this moment (in the media and social networks, at least). In other comments people have been saying that their governments have made mandatory to wear them, and there seems to be no benefit from this measure:

        1) The criminals of WHO say: “If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19”

        2) Studies show that it doesn’t work for other “virical” diseases, so for the same principle it shouldn’t work on this “coronavirus”.

        3) “Face masks cannot stop healthy people getting Covid-19, says WHO” – TheGuardian article

        The only conclusion I can get from all this is that people are behaving absolutely in an irrational way (i.e. they wear masks because they want to feel protected, and because they have fear). There is nothing more dangerous that masses behaving irrationaly!

        Oh, that’s a good one! In my country, as far as I am concerned, there are no many cctv cameras, so I can’t “cheat” them. But if they set them up and I am still living here, I will buy a pig mask like the guy in the video.

        Regarding to the three videos, they are quite interesting. Fist, I think that police officers have behaved quite clever. Second, it’s funny how events can turn around so quickly. And third, what an argument: “The Police argue that in a time where every smartphone camera have facial recognition, why should they be left behind”… This is today’s mentality!

        • eat my cake says:

          “nothing more dangerous that masses behaving irrationaly!”

          thats a big idea; as for mask wearing, I have lotsa exprience wearing them, as a boat builder,, It is uncomfortable, it does lower ones overall air intake. They do block heavy dust, but they efficiently channel fine dust into the nostrils. One virologist compared masks to virus’s like trying to stop a mosquito with a chain-link fence. To be fair, they likely minimize the volume of exchangeable biome. But it may be the biome exchange is the very reason we exist at all; in other words quarantining, when not with strong symptoms, actually can hurt our chances of strengthening herd immunity by open source sharing of viral material and antibodies. other immunity from contact happens by literal voltage exchange with others and the sun.

          I’d say that equally dangerous is when half the masses are half irrational and the other half are half rational.

          Best description I’ve heard for masks is that they have been used historically to signify a person type; like wearing a yellow star,, this time the mask wearers are those most caught in the spell thats been foisted (“mark of beast”,,). A mask wearer is a black magic supporter/minyon

      amenetusien,
      I’d guess that about 3/4 or more of people in my town/city wear a mask when they are out.

      A few days ago I arrived at Costco to grab some groceries and there was a sign at the door stating that masks were mandatory to enter. I will not wear a mask, so I left. I will no longer shop at Costco as long as they enforce wearing a mask, and maybe even afterwards. Before there were really any guidelines for businesses, Costco had deployed huge concert speakers inside its warehouse to blast a propaganda message about wearing a mask, social distancing, and following CDC guidelines, etc. This message was on a constant loop, conditioning customers as they shopped. Not a fan of what Costco has been doing.

        i live in a small town in the Netherlands.
        nobody wears a mask here, i’ve seen maybe 3 people wearing a mask in the last 3 weeks.
        in supermarkets there are perspex plates between the cashier and the customers, and some lines on the floor which are ignored by maybe 1 in 3.
        if you visit a hospital, as my gf does in the north when she visits her friend who has a heart-condition, you are obliged to wear a mask. nursing homes are closed for visitors since about 10 weeks, i was not allowed to visit my mother until the very last day of her life.

        • San*A says:

          but what concerns me maybe more is: i have a lot of friends in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda since i go there for work for a few moths every year since 10 years. hardly any ‘cases’ but the obvious corruption of governments has lead to extremely strict measures like curfew, people out of bussiness who live from day to day who have no spare money at all, there’s stampedes, police-violence, the fear leads to lynch-mobs on people suspected from ‘having the virus’, etc etc. only Burundi has kicked all WHO-officials out of the country, and Tanzania is planning on doing so too. but from what i hear most countries are hit really really hard, looks like no going back to how it was is possible. but hey, who cares, Burundi has no comodities, it has no value to the west. how different from Kenya or the Congo.

          • amenetusien says:

            I am very sorry for your lost. It is awful that something like that is happening so much in these days.

            About Netherlands, it is nice to hear your experience. As far as I am concerned, the country where I live have had heavier measures than many places in the world (at least in Europe). Maybe countries that have had this draconian measures are the ones where social distancing and masks have had more “followers” (just guessing, because I can’t know anything for sure).

            Yes, what is happening in Africa and other countries with not many cases is absolutely puzzling. I realized while I was looking at the table of this wikipedia page (which is not updated very much and it’s not exhaustive) and then compared these measures with the number of cases from worldometers. I guess that these governments are happy to show how strong they are. All countries should kick WHO officials and start acting with real science, experience and taking into account people’s freedom… but it won’t happen in the so called “developed” world.

            By the way, what an interesting experience to spend all this time in African countries. You must have seen a lot of different aspects of politics, way of life and human behaviour!

              On May 4th, President John Magufuli (of Tanzania) suspended the head of testing at Tanzania’s national health laboratory after the lab allegedly returned false positive test results. Magufuli said he’d deliberately submitted biological samples from a papaya, a quail and a goat to test the laboratory’s accuracy; the lab diagnosed these samples as positive for coronavirus.

            it’s very cruel what’s happening in africa at least around the equator. there is no flue in the tropics, because there is fresh food all year long. where i live, we had a total of 10 positives so far, of which one died with diabetes and all the rest recovered. from what, you may ask. tropical country, indeed.

            so then these stupid african governemnts try to follow their masters and lock up everyone in their houses. so they starve, and while they lack fresh food, they miss their daily vitamin-c, and some other vit’s, but particularly vitamin-c, and their immune system starts failing and they may get sick and die from any of the 500+ virusses around, even corona.

            there is aan immense difference between living in the tropics and living up north. it is called winter and it kills you if you let it.

            oh yes, just to be exact: i do not think african governements are stupid because they are african. they are stupid because they do the same stupid things the stupid european goverments do.

            i lived in africa for some time and it appeared to me africans are generally more aware of their surroundings and double bottoms therein than myself.

        Then it is about the same proportion than my city. I live in one of the areas in Spain with more population, so I don’t know if in smaller cities or rural areas people wear mask at all. I mean in the streets, because I am sure that in their jobs, in transportation and in places where it is mandatory, they wear it.

        Where I live there is a Carrefour (a kind of Costco, in the case that you don’t have this company there) and they also use speakers to warn people about these rules. As I said I haven’t get into any supermarket, but I can’t hear it even from outside. It is a good opportunity for searching for little businesses to stop buying in big companies like those.

      I don’t get this “anti-mask movement”.

      Why bother if people wear masks?
      Another divide line should be firmly established?

      Mask don’t provide 100% protection, but to say it provides none is stupid. After all, placebo is proven effective, I guess more than some drugs. You don’t know why an individual wears a mask, you don’t know his background. Maybe he is living with grandma. Maybe he has some serious health issues and this corona could be deadly for him.

      Wearing mask outside or when driving a car is unnecessary. I’ve seen a masked guy riding a bike uphill, outright stupid.
      Wearing a mask in closed space with many people makes sense now.

      Sure I have problem with mandatory things. I had a mask when I was sick a month ago. Now I don’t use mask, they are not mandatory in Croatia. Half of people wear mask, maybe less. I don’t respect social distancing, I found most people are not bothered by this. I had just few situations when people confronted me because of not respecting distance. I’ve observed how strict people are with distancing, not many.

      • amenetusien says:

        Hello Mik,

        I don’t care if people wear masks, gloves or burqa. EVERYONE IS FREE TO DO WHAT THEY WANT. But hey, this “everyone” includes ourselves. What I am saying in my comment is that there is a clear movement to make wearing masks normal, cool and in many places mandatory. This is where my problem and fighting starts, because I REFUSE to wear a mask and having to pay fines if I don’t want to follow the flock. The masking phenomenon is extremely important for humans reprogramming, as well as the social distancing measure.

        You say “Mask don’t provide 100% protection, but to say it provides none is stupid”. I won’t get into the flaws of germ theory, but I invite you to read scientific articles assessing the usefulness of masks: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/340570735_Masks_Don't_Work_A_review_of_science_relevant_to_COVID-19_social_policy. And there are more articles which you can find in PubMed.

        You say that I don’t know their background. Well, I can say that this morning, after answering comments here, I went out to the balcony and more than 90% (I am not kidding) was wearing masks. Many kids doing exercise with masks at all time (like the guy that you say riding hist bike). Again, they are free, but I am pretty sure that you also see a problem here, and mostly for their own health.

        The problem with using masks right now is that people are using them because of pure mind control. Wearing them is a an act of believe, because as many have stated, the virus is yet to prove to exist or at least to cause an infection. Why not wearing masks at all times to avoid any possible infection? Placebo effect maybe would work… in the case that there was a disease. Logic tells me that someone who have fell into the fear of this “plandemic”, probably watching news non-stop, will have stress, which is not precisely a sign of health. I would bet that before having a placebo effect, they would experience a nocebo effect because of their terror.

        Yesterday, by chance, I read this sentence from WHO: Around 81 000 to 138 000 people die each year because of snake bites, and around three times as many amputations and other permanent disabilities are caused by snakebites annually. At this moment there are 314,530 deaths according to Worldometer of people WITH coronavirus (not BECAUSE OF coronavirus). The number is very likely much lower… if there is any at all, which is also a possibility. Are we going to make mandatory wearing long pants in Australia, Asia, America because their snakes are poisonous? I know that you have a problem with mandatory things, but I tell you this just to support how irrational is this situation.

        By the way, for curiosity, a preliminar serologic study have been published in Spain to assess the prevalence of IgG against this coronavirus.

          For masks to work for the wearer, they need to believe that “virus” is everywhere. Everywhere, but not on the mask. The mask doesn’t protect the one wearing it, it’s meant to protect those who are near the wearer. Just imagine the average surgery, do you see the patient wearing a mask? Anyway, far be it from me to burst anyone’s bubble, people are free to blindly believe whatever they want, as far as I’m concerned.

      • amenetusien says:

        Mik, my comment is “awaiting moderation” (probably because is long!), but I want to share a couple of things more with you.

        1) Yesterday (I think) I posted this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1esTWVDohY) but maybe you didn’t watch it, so I post it again. It is in Spanish but, if you want to watch it, forget about the text and the audio and watch the images. It shows one of the reasons why I am afraid about masks and all this programming measures.

        2) This is just a curiosity: did you know that the king of Spain, Felipe VI, has also the title of King of Croatia -and many other places-? Of course practically means nothing for your country (as far as I am concerned), but since you are Croatian and I am Spanish, I wanted to tell you!

        • mik says:

          Interesting, I got your comment on email although is in moderation. So I will reply to it.

          I’ve read a little of article about masks don’t work. Not long ago I found serious flaws in article from researchgate.net so I’m more suspicious than otherwise. Interesting, they say masks don’t work because even one micro-droplet carry enough infectious agents and it’s almost impossible you won’t catch at least one droplet. Like this Minimal Dose of infectious agent isn’t at least to extent an arbitrary measure dependent of actual immune situation of recipient.

          “… because as many have stated, the virus is yet to prove to exist or at least to cause an infection.”

          This statement explains a lot. I’m sure virus exists and it’s nasty, for some people deadly.
          Nevertheless, this cannot be excuse for corona fascism. What I want to say, lots of bad and stupid things are going on right now, but we should be careful and not reduce everything and throwing to the same basket.

          Lets make a mental experiment.
          We live in anarchic society. Imagine an infectious agent nasty, causing kind of plague. Situation is dire. A decision is made: Masks are mandatory. What would you do?

          • amenetusien says:

            You can’t say “I found serious flaws in article from researchgate.net” and dismiss everything coming from there for the same reason that you can’t dimiss everything coming from Linkedin. Researchgate is like the Linkedin of researchers, so there is information of all qualities. You probably haven’t even opened the file, or you would have seen that this researcher is linking to articles in journals, like this one: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19216002. The conclusion of the paper that I have just linked is Face mask use in health care workers has not been demonstrated to provide benefit in terms of cold symptoms or getting colds. (Note that they are talking about health workers, not general population). I don’t care about what explanations researchers give to explain their findings. What matters are the findings themselves.

            Are you really sure that this virus exist? (I wasn’t talking about other viruses, by the way, just about the so called covid-19). How can you be sure that it exists and that it’s deadly if 1) official data is simply wrong for so many reasons that I don’t even know where to start and 2) scientific articles -biased because they are using wrong data- have already demonstrated that its lethality rate is in the range of pandemic influenza (at most)? And why not talking about the incredibly strange epidemiology of this alledgely virus? Like for example that in the study of Spain that I mentioned, children had no antibodies against it (around 1% vs 5% in general population) but they don’t get ill? This is just one example of many. If you want to know something about physical world phenomena you don’t read thousands of theories and believe whatever you like the most. You look at the data in which these theories are based and then you judge yourself.

            This mental experiment is simply full of assumptions. But let’s make them: 1) this virus you talk about exists (i.e. scientists have clearly proven and shown the experiments that this agent fulfill the 4 Koch’s postulates). 2) It is airborne and very contagious. 3) Situation is truly dire as you say. 4) Masks have been shown to protect against it.
            If these four points are clear to me, I would wear the mask before anybody would make this measure mandatory.
            If I don’t believe what they tell me about this virus, I would simply leave this society you talk about (as I would have done today if I could)

              amenetusien,

              I’m amazed by the amount of superficial reading nowadays. And it’s getting worse.

              I didn’t dismiss researchgate.net just expressed caution. I’ve READ parts of article you linked and polemicized their use of Minimal dose of infectious agent. Check out.

              No one is claiming N95 type mask provide 100% protection. Still, it filters out majority of aerosols and thereby reduces germ load.
              And that is something, not nothing.
              Do you want to say that since mask is not perfect, it is bs??

              “I don’t care about what explanations researchers give to explain their findings. What matters are the findings themselves.”
              I think this is some hastily writing that doesn’t necessarily present your stance.

              I won’t discuss existence of virus.
              Check out Peak Prosperity, they provide some interesting observations, with sources.

              “….leave this society you talk about (as I would have done today if I could)”

      no, it is typical american. they call it body language. the idea is that it is something natural. so everybody does it just to not look unnatural. they don’t know why they do it, it is based on social fear, afraid to be different, dumb, etc. they teach themselves more or less like psychopaths teach themselves empathic behaviour, by watching supposedly normal people. i think i even read somewhere there are also training courses for body language, in case you want to be a tv person. for then you could be fired making the wrong moves, with your hands, with your head, your eyes well your whole body. you would not give someone ‘the finger’ on screen, would you. that would be like saying the f-word. you can do these things all day long, no problem, but not on screen. on screen we are decent people, even though we kill millions with bombs all the time.

      by the way, the same counts for the music that plays constantly, even when somebody is talking. i know, for i have some hearing trouble, that makes it difficult to understand someone talking in any noise. this music has something to do with emotions and psychology. maybe in case the words are too difficult for you, you can feel their meaning from the music, though i never heard of courses in musical feeling.

      it sure is strange, though. it must have evolved from the early film industry, before there was sound. instead of treating it like the rudiment it was, they further developed it and since americans watch tv 8 hours a day as an average, it became a parasitic language, that people feel subconsciously while they listen to the words. that was probably to make them easier to manipulate.

      i did not meet that many americans in real time, but they were often a good laugh. i remember a sales team of motorola, intending to sell an expensive system. there were two guys, one was talking about the system while the other was jumping around him all the time, pointing at him and shouting things like “yeah that’s true .. listen to him .. excellent.. ” and so on. he did not understand why i could hardly stop laughing.

I have also met many people who speak with their hands but the gestures seem more fluid and way less pronounced. Maybe I just don’t want to believe it, it feels so false to me. If it is to do with tv then I totally get it. I call that acting.

    The mask hoax
    Question:
    I saw some videos and photographs of media and politicians taking
    their face-masks off when they thought there was no recordings.

    1) they probably know that there is no real danger of the virus.

    2) In one video is stated that there is already a vaccine.

    1> this means that there is a strict propaganda program (like dark winter)
    Note: Wearing masks too long can reduce your oxygen
    levels to a dangerous level (without you noticing).

    2> would implicate that they made the virus.
    And probably released it on purpose.
    In other posts I already made it clear that it came from a lab,
    where they combined 2 viruses and inserted a sequence to make it
    spread faster.

    • cu.h.j says:

      zyxzevn,

      You make a great point about masks increasing carbon dioxide. This can lead to symptoms like lethargy. With that said, I don’t know how this would decrease oxygen levels though in a significant way, enough to cause a substantial drop in oxygen saturation. I say this because I usually wear a mask for flu season for 8 to 12 hours a day at work in a hospital. Masks are required in one declines the flu vaccine for the duration of the flu season at work. I always refuse it and so must wear a mask and I have never noticed substantial issues. The N95 mask, however, worn all day might cause other symptoms but I doubt it would cause all the symptoms viral pneumonia has, like fever, chills, cough, sore throat, etc.

      My point is that I don’t think masks account for people who are getting sick from “Covid 19”. I have seen people get sick from it, mainly mild illness and a few significant cases if someone has some health issues or possibly living in a polluted place. The idea it came from a lab and is a bioweapon would not surprise me, but I don’t think it poses a substantial risk to most people and is just being used to scare people and manipulate people psychologically so they do what they are told. It’s terrible, this kind of abuse that is being done to humanity, is infuriating and most people are so ignorant about their own health and bodies through years of being dumbed down and conditioned to trust “experts” without question that they will do just about anything.

      That is terrifying. This propaganda campaign is nothing like I have ever seen before and wearing a mask when someone is outside makes no sense at all. On the other hand, if a person works in a hospital with various germs, it makes sense. Who wants to catch the flu, cold or other stomach flu that makes a person sick. I’ve caught tons of nasty things at work, so I actually prefer a mask when I am around sick people.

      I don’t think there’s any reliable data to suggest wearing a mask is effective at stopping the spread “Covid 19” or any other coronavirus unless someone is symptomatic and coughing and puts it on so they don’t hack all over people. Washing hands is best for stopping the spread of germs, there’s actually data on handwashing.

      I think the mask, in this case-“Covid 19”, is a sign of conformity and fear and support of this false narrative, ie some deadly virus that is causing mass deaths, which it is clearly not if a person does some research on the facts and how the numbers have been inflated.

      Anyway, I just thought I would share my thoughts about maks.

      Italian Politician Demand Bill Gates Arrest For Crimes Against Humanity
      https://greatgameindia.com/italian-politician-demand-bill-gates-arrest-for-crimes-against-humanity/

      EXCERPTS (Many reference script links in article)

      Days after it was revealed in an intercepted human intelligence report that Bill Gates offered $10 million bribe for a forced Coronavirus vaccination program in Nigeria, now an Italian politician has demanded the arrest of Bill Gates in the Italian parliament.
      Sara Cunial, the Member of Parliament for Rome denounced Bill Gates as a “vaccine criminal” and urged the Italian President to hand him over to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity.
      She also exposed Bill Gates’ agenda in India and Africa, along with the plans to chip the human race through the digital identification program ID2020.
      In an extraordinary seven-minute speech met with wide applause, Sara Cunial, the Member of Parliament for Rome said that Italy had been subjected to a “Holy Inquisition of false science.”

      She roundly criticized the unnecessary lockdown imposed on her fellow Italians in the service of a globalist agenda. She urged fellow political leaders to desist in any plans to compel citizens to surrender themselves to compulsory COVID-19 vaccination at the hands of the corrupt elite – whom she identified as the Deep State…

      (long article touching on many related issues)

      …The real goal of all of this is total control. Absolute domination of human beings, transformed into guinea pigs and slaves, violating sovereignty and free will. All this thanks to tricks/hoax disguised as political compromises…

      We, with the people, will multiply the fires of resistance in a way that you won’t be able to repress all of us.

    Does Big Brother love us? What if this whole spectacle is a means of sorting, rooting out those dim enough to participate seriously in a beast system and diverting them? The spying, the eugenics and unfolding of the personal essence as an inverse of what the frightened and beaten may assume, that actually the machine is a membrane to the timeless, a layer through which we pass to identify and cycle for development the unprepared, disorganized and unwitting contributors to lame dystopias? Is this a device of man or an aspect of nature?

    What if normies are the bullies, big brother is a prank, perfection is imminent and unavoidable, and this modern storm is a mere scan for fools? It would have to seem convincing, I suppose.

    Actually, aren’t you big brother? Your genes, cells, constituents, if they fail in adhering to the greater biological decree, don’t you cut them away, eliminate, discard them? Do you not strive constantly and obsessively for Mussoliniesque dictatorial oversight of body and mind, in your direct awareness and otherwise? Do you not rely on ironclad hierarchy of elements and reactions to even simply exist? This place right here, this configuration, your memories under you, the potential above, your nerves all in line, your eyes following command, the brain recognizing symbols, not jumping or exploding or disintegrating, does not all of this depend upon FORCE? Upon the enforcing of agreement? ARE WE NOT DOING THE VERY THING WE ARE INSISTING NOT BE DONE?

    Mother of god how did we get here? What is this place? Who is James Corbett and why is he doing this? Are you still here? To what are you clinging so tightly you’ll burn yourself to nothing for? Your shack? Your rags? The faces you rely on to inform you of yourself and what is happening?

I don’t mean that sentimentally or ideologically, but in a most literal way our brain cells are physically not functioning correctly. There seems to be something fundamentally incorrect about the way in which we experience our world, specifically the flow of time. That is, causality is the wrong order, or rather it seems counter-intuitive to the process of consciousness. Reality, language, history, the flow of action and the development of change make absolutely no rational sense. By all account, by all logical reasoning we should not be here. Again, not in a moral or ethical sense, as in humans are unworthy or some drivel, but actually, according to our own account and model of reality none of this should be holding. Something is keeping it together, piecing it together from fragments in a manner which appears as a coherent, continual flow. It is, and I mean this beyond my ability to express, incredible that we are experiencing anything at all.

          Perhaps it is only sick and rotten in a certain direction, the flow from the center out. Experience may be quite different any other way; Decrepitude climbing to excellence with never ending increase of velocity. These are not good things to say here, but I am weak and can barely hold a charge at all. Somebody please see it

            The system is broken, always has been, always was meant to be. The government or system is a reflection of the mindless zombie masses who repeat the same crap over and over and expect a different result, the very definition of crazy. Everything is now upside down, I totally agree. An example, Mr Robot, something popped into my head about watching it again, i did, now on season 2, and its no longer action and reaction, its reaction and then action. Something has indeed changed.

            we fall in love with our models, some are so keen they’d kill to prove a point or at least get they’re way or be right at all cost but these are sand castles below the high tide mark,,

            time:
            I think of it as a perceptual lock or limit on our species (with a few exceptions). most of us seem to experience 3d versions of our models yet captured by a linear one dimensional record, that we call time or reality, which is in flux tween past present future at vibratory rates that vary greatly for different users. there can be 2d and 3d spherical time, but I gotta get the groceries home,,

            the main gig I see, is a beast thats trying to ingress, into our very minds; each move that people make either supports or denys its hunger. Its likely a very old story, but still, Ive watched it growing heaps over the past 2 decades try to avoid feeding it, thanks

                Our existence is nothing short of a miracle. Sometimes the physical world feels like a trap; other times it’s clearly a gift, a refuge. Happiness is found in your perception. Mind over matter. Easier said than done. The hard part is not shifting your focus to find happiness; it’s realizing the strength of your power; that terrifying moment when you realize that you are Big Brother. Yikes. But let’s not get carried away;)

                I believe we are all part of a collective consciousness—like drops of water in the ocean or single cells in the body of God—bigger than anything the infantile human spirit can comprehend.

                So what the hell is going on right now? Is it an illusion? Spiritual warfare? Keep your distance—6ft width, 6ft height, 6ft depth!

    This is a serious question please. I really want to know why so many of us haven’t gone back to flip phones or even landlines knowing what we do.

    On another note. Yesterday I attended a birthday gathering at a local watering hole here in downtown Saint Petersburg at the foot of the under construction new pier. The pub had their tables separated from each other and displayed the required warning signs and such but it seemed to me that hardly none of the attendees were worried about the virus at all. People were moving tables and chairs closer to each other. Every person I knew and every new person that I met shook my hand when I offered it and there was lots of hugging as well.
    I would estimate that about half of the people walking by wore masks but virtually no one at the bar was.
    There was zero presence of any officials or police.

    Then I read in today’s, (Sunday) paper that a large majority of Floridians are in favor of draconian measures to control this non crisis including tracing and tracking as well as fining non compliers.

    This is the same paper that publishes a constant stream of scary numbers about the deaths and infection rates of the virus without ever putting those numbers in any kind of context. Such as how different this years number are from previous years.
    The paper lies.

                I actually never had a smartphone.
                Its a little weird thinking about it but when I started my business which doesn’t seem that long ago, I had a land line and an answering machine. I made all my callbacks and appointments in the evenings and used pay phones when I was in the field.
                Then one day they came up with little cell phones that were pretty handy and fairly inexpensive. Those were the nextel push to talk phones.
                Those didn’t last but I never had the need to have a computer in my pocket so I just never moved past that point.
                And in recent years I have been convinced that I never should. At least not in this reality.

                It is sort of like watching television or voting. I don’t and won’t do either because I think that government is evil and voluntarily validating it in any way invalidates any credibility I may have. And television is, currently at least a tool of propaganda and partaking in even it’s wholesome offerings is subjecting myself to it’s poison.

                I certainly understand why those who cannot or will not see the writing on the wall won’t and don’t stop participating in their own destruction. But I don’t think I will ever understand why people who know better don’t do what they know they should do.

                The last time James mentioned his smart phone, he was letting it die a slow death. I don’t believe he’s told us whether it has drawn its last breath and been buried.

                My Kyocera flip phone is so heavy-duty (water-resistant, though not watertight) that if I ever need to escape Houston and move to the nearest offshore oil rig, my phone would be as rugged as the brawny workers on the platform. They may have Kyoceras, too, so I’d fit right in. 🙂

    Escape from Nashville ‘Camp’ – Jump the fence…RUN!

    QUOTES from Nashville…
    A coronavirus patient was arrested Thursday after prosecutors said he jumped a fence and fled the Nashville Fairgrounds, where health officials are using enforceable quarantines in an attempt to control an outbreak at an emergency homeless shelter…

    …According to an arrest affidavit, a 39-year-old man was taken to the Nashville Fairgrounds on Monday and placed under quarantine by the Metro Nashville Public Health Department because he tested positive for the coronavirus.

    Health officials told the man he could not leave until he was cleared, but on Thursday he jumped a fence and headed north on Nolensville Road, the affidavit states.
    He was stopped and arrested by Metro Nashville Parks police by a city cemetery nearly two miles from where he had been quarantined.

    Metro Parks has charged the man with a single count of escape from a penal institution, a class A misdemeanor.
    The statute that defines this crime makes no mention of it being used to enforce quarantine orders. When asked about the legal authority to make this arrest, the Metro Health Department cited a different section of law that classifies violating quarantine as a class B misdemeanor, which is a less serious offense….

  36. Control Savvy says:

    It took me more than ten years to admit to myself that 9/11 was an inside job. I don’t use the little labels that I’ve seen and heard in the Corbett Community (of which I am a proud member): “sheeple”, “normie”, “down the rabbit hole”, etc. I don’t think they serve any purpose other than to make some people think they are superior to others because they are the “awoken” ones. That doesn’t lead to an understanding of why the majority of people don’t just “wake up”.

    However, my principle aversion to these words is that labels signal or “telegraph” a mind-control technique called “Labeling” and another one called “Us vs Them”. When you see a mind-control technique, you have to stop and take stock, even though it comes from your own group of very “awoken” people. Mind-control isn’t necessarily bad. If you direct someone’s attention to something that you think they should be aware of, you are attempting to control that person’s attention and therefore his mind, in that moment, perhaps with the best of intentions. However, when a group begins to mind-control itself into an Us vs Them position, it is the group that is controlling the thoughts of all the individuals in it. That means that boundaries are being set up with rules and special vocabulary in order to set its members apart. That has advantages, but also dangers.

    I have been fascinated by the subject of mind control since I was a teenager after I watched in rapid succession two movies: “1984” and “The Body Snatchers”. I swore to myself, in all my innocence, that the only person that was going to control my mind was me. I can’t count the number of times I have failed to live up to that oath. Sometimes, I realize I am being controlled but go along with the plan (like when I take my shoes off at an airport), at other times I realize it afterward, looking back and realizing “They got me again”. We are all “normies” from the point of view of “The Controllers”. They have been studying the masses (you and me) for centuries. Anyone who pretends to control the tribe, the city, the state, an army, a vanquished population, etc. is adept at the science of mind control—otherwise they rapidly lose control and disappear from history. The Controllers of today see you and me, Corbett Report Members, as normies—predictable. We are just one part of a normal curve—somewhere near the bottom, but still part of the total population curve.

    I don’t know what to do. I see the train coming and I feel like I am on the tracks, in a tunnel that does not allow room to avoid disaster. However, this feeling is just another example of Mind Control. They got me again. People all throughout the normal curve are afraid. I am not alone. People are choosing different paths of escape or just standing like deer in the headlights. If we behave outside the normal curve we become “outliers” and are immediately visible to the Controllers.

I am grateful for the many interesting ideas and links that are included in the comments of other Corbett Report Members. However, lest we fall into the “Us vs Them” trap, always remember, “Know thy enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and of yourself, you are sure to be defeated in every battle.”

    Trump says he started taking hydroxychloroquine ‘a couple of weeks ago’
    https://news.yahoo.com/trump-says-he-started-taking-hydroxychloroquine-a-couple-of-weeks-ago-212445823.html

    EXCERPTS
    President Trump said Monday that he has been taking the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine for the last “couple of weeks” as a preventive against the coronavirus.

    “I’m taking it, hydroxychloroquine, right now, yeah,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “Couple of weeks ago, I started taking it. Because I think it’s good, I hear a lot of good stories. And if it’s not good, I’ll tell you right. I’m not going to get hurt by it.”

    According to the White House, Trump is tested every day for the coronavirus and at last report had not been infected…
    (then blah blah blah on how it is not proven to be effective)

    …Hours after Trump announced he was taking the drug, his physician, Sean P. Conley, released a statement in which he said that he and the president had spoken about taking the drug.

    “After numerous discussions he and I had regarding the evidence for and against hydroxychloroquine, we concluded the potential benefit from treatment outweighed the relative risks,” Conley said in the statement without specifying what evidence of a “potential benefit” he had relied upon to reach that conclusion.

    Trump also said he is not receiving azithromycin, but is taking supplements of zinc, believed by some to boost the immune system.

    “I want the people of this nation to feel good,” Trump said of his decision to use hydroxychloroquine despite having tested negative for COVID-19. He added, “I’ve taken it for about a week and a half now, and I’m still here.”

    Asked what evidence there is that the drug can help prevent a person from being infected with the coronavirus, Trump responded: “Here’s my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it.”…

    …“I was just waiting for your eyes to light up when I said this, when I announced this,” Trump said.
    The president assured reporters that “a lot of frontline workers” are “taking it as a preventative.”
    “All I can tell you is so far I seem to be OK.”

      “Many reputable physicians and scientists have said they (masks) are worthless..

      Not one physicians or scientists who could be deemed reputable could say this, because it’s not true.

      I understand people are pissed off because of decrees to wear mask outside. That’s just stupid.
      But it’s not ok to fight stupidity with lie.

    What a coincidence it is, for those theorists specializing in such, that our modern “hero” whistleblower left out in the cold shares a name with that Catch-22 character who was dying in an airplane, “I’m cold . . . I’m cold.” That one did not so much spill the beans as spill his guts, all in or all out for the truth of his imminent death, revealing to Yossarian that man is matter.

    Snowden took a lot of flak, so he must have been over the target. Yossarian tried to ease his pain, but found only an IOU from the Minderbinder corporation. Some kind of prophet of profit, this Joseph Heller.

    May 19, 2020 Tuesday – North Texas Anecdote – Covid Fears?

    Did someone flip a light switch?

    I was out and about today at shopping centers, a hardware store and Sprouts Farmers Market (a natural grocery store chain). Getting warm at 90 degrees F – 32 C pretty much all week.
    Parking lots are starting to show many more cars. The number of people NOT wearing a mask was about 50% or more. Most store employees are mandated to wear a mask. Many employees have to wear gloves. Generally, people seemed much more relaxed, happier, with no worries about a social distance, even the ones with masks on. I could sense that some folks wore a mask only as a courtesy to others who might be COVID paranoid.

    Today, I made a new friend in the Vitamin Department of Sprouts, a young lady who just got her Masters but has been in the Vitamin Dept for 2 years. She loves it. We talked for about 30 minutes. She and a co-worker are taking Quercetin / Bromelain to deter sickness, which I informed her acts as an ionophore for zinc just as Hydroxychloroquine does. An ionophore helps zinc enter the cell. Zinc inhibits a virus. I told her there is a study about Quercetin and zinc and the SARS-Cov virus.

    Grackles, Cowbirds, and Starlings. Around my duplex this year, I have noticed many more of these type of birds. I don’t care for them much…they tend to rob the nests or nesting areas of native birds.
    It dawned on me! duh?! The parking lots have been empty in recent weeks. Typically, these birds scavenge out dropped food containers & crickets where people congregate.

    Back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s a person did not see this kind of thing in Texas.
    As a youngster with a BB gun, I knew about these things.

    Friday, I go to my grandson’s small town High School graduation. It will be at the football stadium. Texas high schools have big football stadiums. Families can sit together. I do not think there will be any social distancing enforcers. I’m betting that there will be a lot of close contact. This town has had no COVID cases per the news.

    From my son’s 25 acres, he sent an unwanted bull to the meat processor. He told me the T-bone was pretty good. They got a lot of hamburger on hand. Anyway, on Saturday it is expected that more than 60 folks, mostly relatives, will come to his place for tacos, hugs and conversation.

    Masks make it harder for people to read each other’s expressions. To guage someone else’s meaning. It’s crowd control 101. If it continues, we will find out who we are, not by human interaction, but by hearing about ourselves on the tv. We will be whoever they tell us to be. Electronic marionettes.

    What critical thinking? Wayback Machine is now complicit in Big Tech censorship

    https://www.rt.com/op-ed/489118-wayback-machine-big-tech-censorship/

    “The webpage archive service Wayback Machine’s decision to additionally label already-deleted articles as ‘disinformation’ is internet history revisionism that comes at a time when critical thinking is desperately needed.

    Earlier this month, Wayback Machine took heed of MIT Technology Review’s protests that they are breathing life into debunked coronavirus ‘hoaxes’, and took to retroactively labelling past web pages and content removed from their original pages with warnings decrying the information presented as false.”

      Good article by Elliot Leavy.

      Last paragraph…
      By tarnishing some — but not all — voices with the disinformation brush, much of the media, academia, and (predominantly) big tech are putting ideological allegiances before anything else.
      Now, as ever, is not the time for that. Once we know more, we can evaluate what is wrong and what is right.
      However, if we continue to censor the past, attaching intent to some but not to others, we will be unable to evaluate anything at all.

    Test Positive for Coronavirus, End Up in a Police Database
    http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/peace-and-prosperity/2020/may/20/test-positive-for-coronavirus-end-up-in-a-police-database/

    FULL ARTICLE
    So you are curious whether you have coronavirus? You could take a coronavirus test to find out. Well, not really find out, since the test results are not reliable. Nonetheless, you can take a test to obtain at least a Magic 8 Ball level answer of if you are or are not infected with coronavirus.

    Here is some information likely unknown to many people when they are tested: The names and addresses of people who test positive are often handed over to police departments that can input or tag those names and addresses in police databases.

    Kimberlee Kruesi provides the details in a Tuesday Associated Press article.
    She starts off her article with the following revelation:

    “More than 11 million people have been tested in the U.S. for COVID-19, all with the assurance that their private medical information would remain protected and undisclosed.

    Yet, public officials in at least two-thirds of states are sharing the addresses of people who tested positive with first responders — from police officers to firefighters to EMTs. An Associated Press review found that at least 10 of those states also share the patients’ names.”

    Kinda makes those coronavirus tests that many government officials and people in the media have been promoting seem less warm and fuzzy, doesn’t it?

      …Curious to learn whether you got what it takes to tattle on a guy with a cough who happened to pass a recently diagnosed patient so that he can be quarantined for 2 weeks (against his will, if necessary)? Then read on.

      1. The definition of close contact is, within 48 hours before the patient’s symptoms began:

      A. Anyone who lives in the patient’s household or is a co-worker.
      B. Anyone who has been within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes.
      C. Anyone with whom the patient remembers spending more than five minutes.

      2. What is the difference between isolation and quarantine?

      A. They’re the same thing. The words are interchangeable.
      B. Isolation means you have to stay away from everyone, and quarantine means you can still go out, but you have to monitor your symptoms.
      C. Isolation is the term used for confirmed COVID-19 patients, while quarantine is the term used for exposed contacts. In both cases, you need to stay away from other people.

      3. You’re on the phone with Amelia, who tested positive for COVID-19. She tells you her symptoms began on June 4. When you follow up on June 12, she says she hasn’t had a fever in four days and most of her symptoms are gone, but she still feels tired. Can her isolation end?

      A. Yes, she’s free to leave home.
      B. No, her isolation’s not over yet. (Bonus points if you can explain why.)

      4. Andy went to a birthday party on May 7 where he was in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 on May 10. A contact tracer calls Andy on May 11. When is it safe for Andy to end quarantine, assuming he does not develop any symptoms?

      A. May 21
      B. May 24
      C. May 25

      5. What is the incubation period of the coronavirus?

      A. Usually two days, but it could be as long as seven days.
      B. Usually five days, but it could be as short as two days or as long as 14 days.
      C. Usually 14 days

      (Answers: 1. B, 2. C, 3. B, It hasn’t been 10 days since symptoms began, 4. A. Quarantine is defined at 14 days since the last day of exposure, 5. B.)

    “Against Covid-19, the mayor of Manaus in Amazonia calls Greta Thunberg for help

    By Laurence Alexandrowicz – Last Update: 04/05/2020

    Excavators are busy, covering the sound of crying in Manaus, a city of two million people in the Amazon jungle. It has become one of the COVID-19 hot spots in Brazil, with some 4,000 deaths. The city’s cemeteries record twice as many deaths as usual.

    The mayor of Manaus made a direct appeal to Greta Thunberg:

    “My dearest Greta Thunberg. I am the mayor of Manaus, the main city of the Amazon. The largest city in the entire Brazilian Amazon. We need help. We must save the lives of the defenders of the forest against coronavirus. We are facing a catastrophe, which looks like barbarism”._

    Arthur Virgílio Neto, mayor of Manaus.

    On Twitter, Greta Thunberg gave her support by denouncing an “unacceptable and alarming situation, before insisting that there can be no climate justice if indigenous rights are violated”.

    In August last year, her movement called for demonstrations against the destruction of the Amazon rainforest, which is being destroyed by fires.

    As a sign that the region is under tension, with two thirds of all Brazilian victims here, Manaus prisoners mutinied on Saturday for five hours to protest against the suspension of visits since mid-March.

    Rumours are circulating that the virus has begun to spread inside the facility.”

    USA Network had an original series called The Dead Zone.
    The series premiered on June 16, 2002 and ended on September 16, 2007, with a total of 80 episodes over the course of 6 seasons.

    Original air date July 13, 2003 during the 2nd Season was “The Dead Zone” episode #14 (27th cumulative) entitled:
    “Plague”

    Johnny has a vision of a plague that starts with the children at a science fair.
    He and Walt must convince a skeptical health inspector and the CDC of his abilities to save everyone.
    He looks into the future and sees the cure weeks before its discovery.

    In May 2020 a YouTube video highlighted apparently prescient similarities to the COVID-19 pandemic. Heavy.com noted “It’s no surprise that the episode is so similar to what we’re experiencing now, since SARS and SARS-CoV-2 are in the same family.”

    Exclusive: A quarter of Americans are hesitant about a coronavirus vaccine – Reuters/Ipsos poll

    EXCERPTS
    (Reuters) – A quarter of Americans have little or no interest in taking a coronavirus vaccine, a Reuters/Ipsos poll published on Thursday found, with some voicing concern that the record pace at which vaccine candidates are being developed could compromise safety.

    While health experts say a vaccine to prevent infection is needed to return life to normal, the survey points to a potential trust issue for the Trump administration already under fire for its often contradictory safety guidance during the pandemic.

    Some 36% of respondents said they would be less willing to take a vaccine if U.S. President Donald Trump said it was safe, compared with only 14% who would be more interested.

    Most respondents in the survey of 4,428 U.S. adults taken between May 13 and May 19 said they would be heavily influenced by guidance from the Food and Drug Administration or results of large-scale scientific studies showing that the vaccine was safe.

    Less than two-thirds of respondents said they were “very” or “somewhat” interested in a vaccine, a figure some health experts expected would be higher given the heightened awareness of COVID-19 and the more than 92,000 coronavirus-related deaths in the United States alone…

    …Fourteen percent of respondents said they were not at all interested in taking a vaccine, and 10% said they were not very interested. Another 11% were unsure.

    Studies are underway, but experts estimate that at least 70% of Americans would need to be immune through a vaccine or prior infection to achieve what is known as “herd immunity,” when enough people are resistant to an infectious disease to prevent its spread…

    …More than 40% said they believe the vaccine is riskier than the disease itself…

    …He has also urged Americans to try unproven treatments for COVID-19, such as the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which he said on Monday he has taken for weeks despite warnings about its use from the FDA and other health experts….

    Should You Get Tested for COVID-19?
    https://lfb.org/should-you-get-tested-for-covid-19/

    EXCERPTS
    What is a “confirmed case” of COVID-19?
    No.
    This is not a trick question.

    It’s someone who has tested positive for COVID–19.

    Meaning, you can be perfectly healthy, test positive, and become a “confirmed case.”
    (You are therefore classified as “asymptomatic.”)

    So, in light of all of the incredibly strong policies created in response to the “confirmed cases” burning through the world…

    Everything, therefore, hinges on the PCR tests –– the most widely used method today –– being accurate.
    Of course, 100% accuracy is impossible in anything.
    But the question is, how accurate are they?
    Even tiny inaccuracies become meaningful at scale.

    “If the test is 99% accurate,” researcher David Crowe has pointed out in this paper, “in a city of over 10 million, like Wuhan, there would be about 100,000 false positives (1%).”

    The rub?
    Testing an uninfected population will produce only false–positives and no false–negatives…
    …Strangely, the potential false–positive problem with PCR tests is hardly factored into the equation…

    …There is No Gold Standard

    The PCR test is a DNA manufacturing technique which uses “cycles” to magnify specific genetic material.

    The COVID–19 tests are looking for small RNA segments (genes) of the COVID–19 genome. (Of the total genome, they might be looking for about 1%.)

    The FDA has approved 33 different PCR tests from separate manufacturers.

    Problem #1: There’s no single standard on what to detect…

    …Problem #2: There’s no single standard for cutoff…
    (Many details in article)

    … The Biggest Problem
    We are using these tests as the basis of every decision –– local and national.
    And there’s little consistency….
