Coronavirus: Herd Susceptibility

It’s a bit disappointing read so many articles online, in publications that style themselves as “alternative news,” contrarian or against the mainstream, which are so unquestioningly supportive of the official narrative that the COVID – 19 virus is an almost unstoppable killer and the only way we can save ourselves and the civilisation that has given us our comfortable lives is by destroying the civilisation that has given us our comfortable lives. The kind of writing that supports continuation of lockdown, which as we should all know by now, was based on “scientists” running mathematical models of the virus that were so ineptly designed their output cannot even be classified as “not  fit for purpose.”

The figures for likely deaths from COVID – 19 Coronavirus were so wildly exaggerated and so completely unsupported by factual evidence, it would be wrong to describe them as pure speculation or even guesswork. But it was an opportunity for politicians: with the number of deaths, based on the history of previous Coronavius variant, almost certain to fall way below the hyperbolic estimates, it is easy to claim as they did when the “swine ‘flu pandemic,” predicted to cause 575,000 deaths worldwide was actually responsible for 18,500 according to official figures.

It was then easy for the politicians and bureaucrats to claim that the discrepancy between predicted deaths” and real deaths was down to their panicked responses, which had saved almost 500,000 lives. One would think it does not take high intelligence to recognise that comparisons between “projected deaths” and real deaths are meaningless. But lo and behold! Only last week I came across somebody in a comment thread on Medium.com claiming that the USA’s lockdown had been correct as the 2.2 million projected deaths had been reduced by isolation and other measures to a mere 68,000. We can safely assume that the “other measures” include deliberately muddling reality and fantasy.

Other areas of fantasy involve some of the conspiracy theories that pop up like garden weeds in a warm spell whenever the public are asked to believe a narrative so opaque and so at odds with what can be observed. Interestingly while suggestions such as the virus having originated in a biological research laboratory on Wuhan, China, which is now recognised as almost certainly the case, are dismissed as the ravings of “conspiracy theorists,” trying to discredit  questioning of the narrative in that way only makes other more whacky conspiracy theories more credible. Thus the claim that COVID – 19 is a biological weapon designed for use against the west or that the virus was a US creation deliberately released by CIA agents in China are not going away anytime soon.

Another theory that though ostensibly ludicrous, may have a grain of truth at its core is that the virus can be spread by the 5G wireless telephony now being rolled out by communications corporations, a notion UK Television presenter Eammon Holmes was accuse of promoting on the news magazine he fronts, although Mr. Holmes actually said nothing of the kind. It is certain a virus cannot be transmitted by Electromagnetic Radiation in any frequency range, but there are two quite important points which suggest Eammon Holmes was right to say there is no evidence that radiation from 5G masts is harmless.

Without getting technical (who’s got time to read a technical explanation,) 5G is a much higher intensity of radiation than previous cellular or radio / TV frequencies and as everybody knows radiation is harmful (anyone not heard of Chenobyl? Or Fukushima? Different circumstances but  electromagnetic radiation from those two nuclear reactor meltdowns harmed living tissue all the same. It isn’t the strength of radio activity alone that causesd problems, it’s the strength * the duration, so a low dose for a long period can be more damaging than a short sharp blast. Look up Banana Equivalent Does if you don’t believe me.

OK, eating even a hundred bananas a day is not going to give you coronavirus, but bombardment with radiation is known to harm the immune system, which would make people more vulnerable to virus infection.

Secondly, in the 1980s and 90s there were long running arguments about whether cellphones caused brain damage. The phone companies, which were making millions from sales and subscriptions denied it, governments, which were making billlions from selling operators’ licences backed them.

Years later it was admitted that yes, walking around with your mobile phone clamped to your ear all day could cause permanent harm. No problem, we could easily be safe by taking a few simple precautions, limit usage, use a hands – free set contained in an insulating case, that kind of thing.We are going down the same road now with 5G and many doctors and researchers are questioning the wisdom of this. So when Eammon Holmes rebuked his co – presenter for parroting corporate prop[aganda, in my habitually sceptical opinion Eammon was right to question her. He could have phrased his response better, but even I am not sceptical enough to think This Morning is entirely scripted and who among us has never phrased a spontaneous response poorly.

Conspiracy theories and crazy talk are bad things to be sure. But the question is how clear is the distinguishing line between genuine ‘crazy talk’ and hard but legitimate questions which authorities do not want asked, examples being: “How did the twin towers of the World Trade Centre come down in what looked like a controlled demolition after being randomly struck by passenger jets? or If the MMR vaccine is totally safe why has the US vaccine court made multi – million dollar awards to parents whose children showed evidence of developmental damage shortly after receiving it?  These are not conspiracy theories, they are legitimate questions. And if such questions are to be dubbed “conspiracy theories”, suppressed by mainstream media and censored by search engine tachnology from internet news feeds  how are we voters to tell whether journalists are doing their job of asking those questions and calling our elected representatives to account, or whether they are simply shilling for the government’s official line on any issue in order to curry favour with The Powers That Be?

To take one example: asking whether the virus originated in a Chinese lab has, curiously, been dismissed by official sources since the start of the outbreak as ‘crazy talk.’  But is it crazy to ask this question, given what we know about the proximity of the Wuhan virus lab to the ‘wet market’ which the Chinese government tells us is the source of the virus, and the known shoddy safety standards at that lab? Should we blithely trust the assurances of a totalitarian state, and dismiss those who challenge it as a nutters? The Washington Post, not generally known for its conspiracist ravings, doesn’t seem to think so:

Washington Post – Wuhan lab safety issues

Genuine conspiratorial nonsense – faked moon landings, Bilderbeg shape shifting lizards and the like – needs to be separated from hard questions which go against the official grain. Otherwise journalists, end up being nothing more than useful idiots for power. I remember the fake Iraq War dossier with its talks of Saddam Hussein’s Weapons Of Mass Destruction which all the mainstream journalists lapped up and sensationalised, whilst laughing at the ‘crazy talk’ which suggested the whole case might be fabricated to justify a regime change campaign against a mad, but popular among his people, dictator who refused to stick to th globalist script that had been prepared for him. Of course Saddam Hussein had secret weapons of mass destruction that posed an existential threat to the west, the mainstream media sneered in chorus.

I’m also old enough to remember the assassination of President Kennedy (I was mid evening when the news broke in Britain, I was at a school speech day at the time and I’m sure the news spoiled the night for my former teachers, who would have been ready to rejoice because they knew that when I shuffled off the stage with my certificates they would have seen the last of their most disruptive and under – performing pupil. It was the Kennedy assassination that led to the phrase “conspiracy theorist” being coined. We will never know the full story of what happened that day in Dallas but the questions asked by ‘conspiracy theorists’ over the following years totally debunked the official narrative.

Mainstream media’s smug dismissals of conspiracy theorists can easily make them look like a New World Order a stooges when on a longer timeline the conspiracy theories turn out to be much closer to the truth than the official narrative.

Describing people warning about the possible dangers of 5G with ‘conspiracy theorists’ who claim the world is hollow and a master race of highly intelligent, technologically advanced, non humans live beneath our feet might make them look ridiculous, but is certainly not a scientific approach. It has been well known for many years (but generally suppressed) that cellphone radiation can be harmful (sic) and that children living close to cell phone towers have higher rates of leukaemia that normal. Listen to Frank Clegg, former president of Microsoft Canada in this YouTube video or do your own research which will reveal many respected scientists and a lot of research published in peer reviewed journals warn of genetic damages, neurological disorders and changes to the reproductive system as a result of prolonged exposure to radiation from phones and wi – fi. I would suggest that you look into this for fairness’ sake.

Eammon Holmes may have avoided much the opprobrium cast his way if he had merely quoted the late Christopher Hitchens: “What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.” Unfortunately spontaneous responses do not give us a lot of time to think.

As for the COVID – 19 Coronavirus, the narrative spun by government propagandists, research grant phishing scientists, and mainstream media pundits is looking more shaky by the day as statistical frauds are revealed and genuine experts rather than con artists with mathematical models tell us most of what we have been told is wring. There is very little chance of being affected in open areas, staying in the enclosed space of our homes was the worst advice we could have been given. The disease does disproportionately affect old people but even so the kill rate of COVID – 19 is way below that of the usual strains of seasonal flu and most healthy people, with no underlying medical condistions who are infected will show only mild symptoms or none at all.
