Stay healthy or you’ll become a slave of the “health industry.” Make yourself healthy or you’ll remain a slave of the same industry. Medically assisted populations are medically controlled populations. You know what to do. Get into Nature and embrace the sun and grounding and control your risks of COVID using your own immune mechanisms. That is the story of a Black Swan mitochondriac.
Injustice can be committed by doing and saying nothing. When a paradigm argues for a mandatory treatment, you think might be harmful, do you speak up? So, you’re chilling at home watching TV. Great, not doing anything wrong there really but also by not doing something that is helping you towards your goals is actually detrimental. Or an injustice as Marcus Aurelius would put it.
By being lazy, you’re doing yourself an injustice and an injustice to the goals you have. You’re disrespecting yourself. If you do not value yourself who else do you value?
Let’s say you’ve set a goal to lose a bit of weight but you keep skipping the gym classes you said you were going to go to. Yes, you’re not exactly going backwards by sitting at home but you’re doing an injustice to your future self.
Life isn’t easy, it’s not supposed to be. If life is easy, you’re definitely only living at 40% of what you’re actually capable of. It can be hard to decide what to do sometimes but doing nothing shouldn’t be an option. Doing nothing is an injustice to your future self.
When you know something isn’t right you need to speak up regardless of the consequences.
Time for some changes.
In retrospect, medical school was a pernicious attempt to cripple my mind and break my spirit. The failures of chronic disease management opened me up to change. That was the day I decided to remove my shackles and come out of the cave.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
I think if you have a serious medical comorbidity and you are in the high risk group getting the jab is a good decision on the risk benefit curve. Those people need to be in the experimental group for COVID. But the “allegory of the cave” points out why being in the other group is very important as well. Why is the control group important to medical science?
When and if this mRNA paradigm fails (exiting the cave) we will need plasma from the unvaxxed to treat variants. The argument of where the variants may not be settled scientifically, but scientists do know that when a jab is not as efficient as it was sold to be, they will need convalescent plasma to fight variants. Many of us realize if you’re vaxxed you can’t donate antibody plasma anymore = potential serious problem that only the unjabbed can solve for the public.
The allegory of the cave told by Plato forces us to ask, what is real? Is truth, like time, relative? I think truth and time are relative. Neither are absolute, but always relative to perspective and belief.
The scientific establishment has always had a tendency “to turn into a church, enforcing obedience to the latest dogma and expelling heretics and blasphemers.” This tendency was previously kept in check by the fragmented nature of the scientific enterprise:
1. In the age of social media, however, “the space for heterodoxy is evaporating.” So those who believe in science as philosophy are increasingly estranged from science as an institution. It’s sure to be a costly divorce.
2. People can’t distinguish pattern from context. Orthodoxy can corrupt science as easily as religion when homodoxy degrades to orthodoxy and orthodoxy degrades to ideology and dogma. People who say they “believe in science” have no idea how the methodology works.
3. “The spirit of uncertainty in science is an attitude toward the metaphysical questions that is quite different from the certainty and faith that is demanded in religion. (Feynman)”. If you turn Science into God it is because you want to annihilate the human spirit.
4. Modern science now suffers from scientism which has become its own religion. So many public health officials are creating “guidelines” blindly without doing ANY of their own research. Moreover many clinicians have to follow these bad policies and it is destroying lives in many untold ways.
5. The allegory of the cave has a deep lesson for humans who are going through COVID. What you believe is coloring the world you and the truth you believe. If people think politics and Hollywood and the medical field has been hijacked… Wait until people learn how the entire scientific community has been hijacked through dogma since 1911. Creating an Idiocracy where people now accept ideas that are mutually exclusive to reality.
6. Why do people have a right to be skeptical of science and gov’t?
A. Cutter Incident of the polio vax in 1950 (above).
People who think the gov’t and science are always altruistic will never question authority. They are happy to be shackled to the wall in the cave. There are others who want to break free of the shackles and see what exists outside the cave. Those who come back into the cave to share what they found won’t be treated well. https://www.studiobinder.com/blog/platos-allegory-of-the-cave/
C. The gov’t and its agencies just announced that use of the PCR test is pseudoscientific this weekend. That latest move alone should get the slaves in the cave to question their belief system. Will it? I can’t believe that Michael Mina was wrong about PCR testing. Not Eric Ding too?! Shocking! The entire narrative of a pandemic was built on the PCR test and now it just went up in smoke. But now the FDA will use a new PCR that I bet will have lowered cycle thresholds for the vaccinated compared to the unvaccinated to prove efficacy. The aftermarket data out of Israel is showing that the durability of the vaccine is not what Big Pharma said it was.
My bet is the new test will be used on vaccinated people and the cycles threshold will be very low to show vaccine efficacy.
7. NFL Politics: the art of using euphemisms, lies, emotionalism, and fear-mongering to dupe average people into accepting–or even demanding–their own enslavement. https://www.outkick.com/steelers-among-nfls-least-vaccinated-will-have-players-wear-bracelets-during-practice/
This move by the Steelers is a fascist move to mark players just as the Nazi’s did to Jews in the 1940’s. Yet no one here questions the activity. Might it be you are still in the cave? Do they care about protecting players or their profit stream? The NFL mandates vaccines by decree but cannot mandate a QB with 22 sexual assaults away (Desean Watson). The rules aren’t just. They just fit the business model. https://www.foxnews.com/sports/deshaun-watson-texans-training-camp-sexual-misconduct-lawsuits-reports This isn’t about science. It is about money. power, and control of minds.
8. The durability of the Pfizer vaccine is not very long. This new data blows holes in how the media has reported scientific results that gov’t leader like Fauci helped craft to reduce vax hesitancy. https://www.timesofisrael.com/hmo-those-who-inoculated-early-twice-as-likely-to-catch-covid-as-later-adopters/
This will eventually lead to vaccine passports and social scores and loss of rights.
9. NOBODY is accounting for natural immunity from having Covid. All those so called positive PCR test built the foundation for natural cell mediated immunity.
THE MILITARY IS SET TO MAKE VACCINE MANDATORY ON SEPT 1.
America deserves better than its current military leadership, says Josiah Lippincott a former Marine.
“On July 22, Major General Patrick Donahoe, the Commanding General of Fort Benning, reported from his official Twitter account that he was seeing a “surge” in ICU visits among young soldiers due to Covid. He reported that he would mandate the vaccine if he had the power to do so.
I replied, pointing out that the DOD has lost a total of 26 out of over 2 million personnel in the last year and a half to the virus. In the fourth quarter of 2020, there was a 25 percent surge in suicides across all services. In those three months alone, 26 additional service members took their lives compared to the prior year.
The military’s response to the Coronavirus is almost certainly to blame for the rise in suicide. I exited the service in May of 2020, having had plenty of time to witness these policies firsthand. Deployed troops returning home were forced to quarantine for weeks at a time. Masks were required in all public spaces on base. Gyms were shut down. Commanding officers dramatically reduced liberty limits to within only a few miles of base. Those, like me, who were stationed in Camp Pendleton, were prohibited from traveling just 30 minutes south to San Diego during our off hours.
In light of these draconian policies, it is no wonder that troops experienced a surge in psychological illness and suicidal ideation. Turning barracks into prisons is a recipe for problems. Nor did the catastrophic “outbreaks” of Covid materialize. Virtually all servicemembers known to be infected with the virus recover. The handful of Covid related deaths are sad, but they never rose to the level of a crisis. On average, nearly a thousand military personnel die because of training accidents, suicide, and illness every year.
General Donahoe accused me of engaging in “false equivalency” and of downplaying the vaccine, arguing that it was the path to “normalcy.” As the return of mask mandates for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated in cities like Los Angeles attest, this is clearly not true. The real path to normalcy is for military leadership to adjust their risk tolerance. Treating healthy people like biohazards over an illness that has killed two dozen personnel in a force of millions is insane. Those preventative policies have consequences, too; the surge in depression and suicide among the young is real.
Preventative measures make matters worse. One need only look at the case of Michigan and Sweden. Both territories have an equal population. Yet, Michigan suffered 50 percent more deaths from Covid despite implementing lockdowns, school closures, and mask mandates while Sweden did not. General Donahoe simply brushed these facts aside, deciding instead to call me a member of the “disinformation tinfoil hat team” for pointing them out.
He also tweeted at the university where I am a student, Hillsdale College, and told them to “come get your boy” for questioning the military’s quarantine and lockdown policies. General Donahoe, apparently, thinks the private sector is just like the military, where criticism can be stopped, and careers ended, with a mere snap of the fingers. As the thread attracted more attention, one commenter asked the General “how many wars he’d won.” The General responded by accusing the questioner of “shilling for Putin.” When I asked if Putin was the reason America had lost in Afghanistan, the General blocked me.
My interaction with the General serves as a microcosm of the American military’s cultural rot. Here we have a two-star General who spends his days on social media hyping a vaccine for an illness that poses minimal risk to his troops. When pressed on why America can’t win wars and why he embraces policies that treat healthy people like biohazards, his first response is to accuse his critics of treachery and then block them from view.
This is what $693 billion a year buys you: unbridled arrogance from the leaders of a military that can’t win against third world tribesmen armed with small arms and homemade explosives. A significant portion of our military leaders, like General Donahoe, are totally detached from reality. They face no consequences for losing wars or losing troops to preventable suicides. Many of them don’t really command anything at all. They are so ensconced in layers of bureaucrats, staff, operations and logistics shops, briefs, intelligence reports, public affairs officials, and aides that there is usually no danger of the public uncovering their true character, lack of leadership, or empty careers.
Twitter, for all its many flaws, provides a direct line into the thought process and values of the military’s elite class. Too often, the minds of our great and courageous “warriors” are filled with nothing more than anodyne policy statements, automatic deference to other members of the elite expert class, and received wisdom from the mouths of MSNBC hosts. A painful lesson for patriotic citizens, perhaps, but a necessary one.
As these leaders spend their days scrolling twitter in the twilight of their careers, waiting to secure their pensions and post-retirement defense contractor gigs, they deserve to feel some heat from the people they allegedly serve. Getting “ratio’d” is, for many of them, the worst consequence they’ll ever face for overseeing institutional failure. Still, that discomfort isn’t nothing. Feeling some modicum of pain for the lives lost and the money wasted under their command is a good thing.
The American people need to demand more from their leaders. They need these heroic defenders of freedom to account for their lost wars, failed policies, and ideological radicalism. Twitter gives the people the perfect avenue to do so.
Americans are beginning to realize that their military leaders are failing them. Even if politicians fail to demand better of them, we can and should still make our opinion known. Our generals are, far too often, soft, coddled elites and unthinking ideologues. It is time for the American people to start cyberbullying their generals.”
