Liberty is a mental illness?
Trusted scientists – who have been worshipped as god-like entities throughout the pandemic – faked information to help the government sell tyranny.
Academics are always lauding their moral superiority over us, but how often do we inspect what they think?
They are the faceless entities building our cages, whispering on the shoulder of power. If what they say changes the course of civilisation, we need to hear it. The Prime Minister’s National Cabinet and its nest of premiers have gone to great lengths to make sure we don’t…
To keep the science behind Covid health orders a secret, the Prime Minister has tabled legislation to bury National Cabinet’s machinations forever. This information is so dangerous – apparently – that its disclosure would violate the trust Australians have in their political class and jeopardise frank and honest discussions required to combat the pandemic — which is a weird position to argue from if your science is trustworthy.
If premiers were truly in possession of enlightened knowledge, why aren’t they parading it around to excuse their sustained violation of Australian law? Wouldn’t camera-hungry chief health officers want their captives to see them fight for tougher restrictions in their hour of glory? If the Australian public are not entitled to privacy during Covid to protect ‘the greater good’ – why are politicians building walls?
The only logical explanation is that the ‘science’ is shit.
With transparency comes accountability. Whatever these people did behind closed doors, they certainly don’t want you to know about it. Secrets don’t last forever. Covid studies have already leaked that make Kevin Rudd’s Pink Batts napkin policy look like Newton’s Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.
Last week we discovered that the Victoria Department of Health referenced – almost solely – a Burnet Institute study on the effectiveness of mask-wearing which essentially flipped through a couple of photos taken by The Age.
Embarrassed, they issued a series of tweets defending the widely mocked paper. “Everyone is entitled to their views, but to publish a headline ‘it’s crap’ that is attributed to the unnamed scientist, is very disappointing and unprofessional,” insisted the Burnet Institute.
Anonymous or not, the review was right. Their study was crap and it never should have been anywhere near government policy let alone sitting at the centre as justification for a mask mandate. Who were the geniuses inside the government that decided to use it – or are we witnessing a group of desperate politicians grasping at soggy paper straws to support their actions?
Incompetence on this scale should result in an apology and some very public sackings, but neither academia nor the bureaucracy is ever held accountable. The Burnet Institute is the tip of the iceberg. Covid is drowning in rubbish ‘expert’ data that has about as much value as letting your three-year-old drag lipstick across the wall.
In amongst the laughable studies, we have a far more sinister truth emerging. The Victorian President of the Australian Medical Association casually suggested that the unvaccinated should opt-out of the public health system and ‘let nature run its course’ if they get Covid.
Then, an article in Britian’s Daily Telegraph revealed that members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour weaponized fear to make people more compliant with health orders because people did not feel ‘sufficiently threatened’ by Covid.
“The [UK] government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear,” said one of the scientists. “The way we have used fear is dystopian. The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.”
