    COVID Rethink: Should You Trust The Government With Your Life?

    This is a must-read and must-share article by a rational investigator who correctly concludes, “So long as we do believe the myth, we are avoiding the responsibility to manage this virus the way intelligent societies always have.” It’s time for America to stop the shadow-boxing and get back to living.

    And, who is prodding government action but Technocrats who are deeply committed to transforming the world into a scientific dictatorship, aka Technocracy. Does anyone really think that Bill Gates cares about you when he has played fast and loose with the lives of millions in Africa and India? Does Anthony Fauci really care about the health of Americans when he terrifies millions into avoiding health care facilities when they really should be getting care? Do state governors and city mayors care about your health when they pass liberty-sapping mandates to wear masks when there is no clear scientific evidence that there is need to do so?

    Government has never corrected itself from any wrongdoing or abuse of power. Nevertheless, it’s time to stop the charade, and only American citizens have the power and position to do so. ⁃ TN Editor

    Storied minds have argued that a failure to critically examine our beliefs makes us culpable for adverse outcomes. Beliefs lead to actions, which impact other people.

    As Voltaire wrote during the Enlightenment — when society still had time away from the screen to reflect on philosophy, morality, and fundamental truth — “those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”

    This has never been more true than in the age of social media, when information and opinions constantly bombard us from all sides, isolating us from our own thoughts and values. We have a moral duty to critically examine our beliefs — especially our belief in “lockdown,” the most oppressive and universally destructive public policy implemented in our lifetimes.

    Is it the least-restrictive means available to minimize casualties in this pandemic?

    Our belief in it was formed when we felt legitimate fear — this can lead to irrationality — so we really cannot answer this question in good conscience unless and until we take the time to conduct a proper, honest examination with the benefit of hindsight.

    Any number of atrocities can occur when human beings act on unfounded, unexamined beliefs.

    Consider the example of the shipowner in William Kingdon Clifford’s 1876 essay, “The Ethics of Belief.” Troubled by the condition of his aging ship, which others have suggested is not well-built and is in need of repairs, he eventually pacifies himself with these comforting thoughts: “She had gone safely through so many voyages and weathered so many storms that it was idle to suppose she would not come home from this trip also.” The shipowner develops a sincere conviction that she will not sink, and acts on his belief.

    “He watched [the ship’s] departure with a light heart, and benevolent wishes for the success of the exiles in their strange new home that was to be; and he got his insurance-money when she went down in mid-ocean and told no tales.

    “What shall we say of him? Surely this, that he was verily guilty of the death of those men. It is admitted that he did sincerely believe in the soundness of his ship; but the sincerity of his conviction can in nowise help him, because he had no right to believe on such evidence as was before him. He had acquired his belief not by honestly earning it in patient investigation, but by stifling his doubts.”

    The shipowner’s belief was built on sand — he knew he had questions to answer, but instead he took the comfortable path, and other people had to pay with their lives for it. While it may appear that he personally got off easy, his reputation, confidence and conscience surely suffered.

    People who harbor false beliefs and ignore warning signs routinely end up grievously harmed: consider the investors in Elizabeth Holmes’ Theranos scam, or Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, or the parents of Larry Nassar’s little-girl gymnasts. These examples prove just how easily the trust and credulity of very intelligent people is easily exploited. It happens like magic, in broad daylight — millions are lost or gained, irreparable actions are taken — with the victim all the while believing he or she is choosing to participate in a beneficial relationship or situation.

    The passengers trusted the shipowner. The investors trusted the entrepreneurs. The parents trusted the doctor. Should WE be trusting the government?

    Perhaps, instead of taking the easy path of blind faith, we should challenge our government’s assertions about COVID-19 and how to deal with it. After all, governments have already admitted to manipulating us in writing:

    Perceived threat: A substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened; it could be that they are reassured by the low death rate in their demographic group . . . The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.

    I respectfully submit to you: anyone willing to adopt this shady tactic is not worthy of your blind trust.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    I wouldn't trust the government to walk my dog if I had one.

    I was just thinking about how to get the message out...

    1. PREP Act provides immunity to companies and those who administer it.
    2. No animal testing.
    3. What once took years/decades is now being fast-tracked months.
    4. What once took years/decades, and then pulled from market, along with countless lawsuits, see 1., 2. and 3.
    5. Autism alone has exponentially increased since the 60's.

    Yet so many are anxiously awaiting this new vaccine. with no long-term study on animals or human beings. Talking about building a proper immune system either receives conspiracy accusations or is like speaking a foreign language.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”
