Coming from a research, development, test and evaluation, my natural inclination is to apply scientific reasoning to issues. I rely on facts and logic and inherently challenge existing theory. Does this make sense in a hyper political world? I don’t know ———-
Legitimate concerns over COVID 19 vaccinations have been raised. However, it appears that political suppression and propaganda have worked to create enough fear and confusion that a large number of individuals accept without thought or scientific challenge the constantly changing and often contradictory political wisdom of the day. Although current studies indicate that the more COVID 19 vaccines an individual gets, the less able their immune system is to refute COVID 19 variants, people still keep getting ever more shots and boosters. Their propagandized reaction is either to ignore the changing science or say something like “but if I get COVID, I am less likely to have serious symptoms and health problems.” Does this latter statement make sense? To me, if your immune system is damaged and compromised by the vaccine, then the reaction to COVID 19 and other opportunistic diseases are likely to be more serious not less. From what I have read, hospital and death data increasingly bear this out.
Recently, The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, suggested that individuals under 40 have their hearts checked because of an epidemic of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS). Notably, Australians are among the most heavily Covid vaccinated people in the world. The U.S. SADS Foundation has identified warning signs in children, teens and young adults regardless of health. The most predominant indicators of potential death include: Sudden unexplained death of a family member, fainting or seizure during exercise or when excited or startled. My question is what does a cardiologist check for? It appears to me that whatever check is done would be after the fact as injury of some kind would be the trigger for a medical visit. (There are home health devices that might help such as the blood pressure cuff, oximeter, and Kardia Mobile EKG device.)
Masking for COVID 19 is now well beyond scientific reasoning. People wear masks in doctor’s offices but ignore wearing them in the drug store. It’s as if the virus can medically distinguish between locations. Interestingly, current scientific peer-reviewed studies indicate that masks are unhealthy and increase all types of disease problems. Thus, mask wearing is a matter of social and political acceptance but not a matter of health and science. To me, if you feel good wearing a mask, your choice, but don’t tell me that the science of the mask isn’t in doubt and I should be mandated to wear one.
And how about social distancing rule? The 6 foot COVID 19 spacing displayed on the floors of the local grocery or drug store is arbitrary. Studies have shown that a sneeze or cough can travel twice that distance. Does anybody even observe the rule? From my experience in the local grocery, the actual distance observed is cart plus person plus a foot. If it were 12 feet, two consumers would quickly insert themselves between me and the person in front. A battle, possibly physical, would quickly ensue based on line jumping.
At this point, public education has become a cruel joke all too often advocating for the destruction of science and its replacement with supposed social justice ideas. To the radicals of the left, the American populace doesn’t need science because it doesn’t help the march to the new great world socialist order. (Unfortunately, scientific research, development, test and evaluation are needed to build a robust civilized society. More unfortunately, our comrade leaders are trying to ignore the 5000 years of evolved science based civilization which is manifest in America and its Constitution.)
I like a robust debate based on facts and logic. I don’t value a political shouting match which is the current way of resolving disputes. In the novel “1984”, 2 plus 2 could equal anything the state told you it was. 4 was only one of a number of answers. And who knows, maybe 4 isn’t even a number because we could define it as something other than a number. Replacing facts and logic with emotional ignorance doesn’t really work in the long run. Human misery and cultural decline are the results.
