How We Have Been Misled About Antidepressants

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Psychiatric drugs have been misunderstood and misrepresented in the interests of profit and professional status. It is time to let people know not only that the serotonin story is a myth, but that antidepressants change the normal state of the body, brain and mind in ways that may occasionally be experienced as useful, but may be harmful too.

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The CDC’s announcement covers everything except the fundamental problem to which the director and the external reviewer are blind: industry subservience and epidemiologic incompetence.

How Covid Policy Tore Israel Apart

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The rules of medical confidentiality between the patient and the entity treating them must be strengthened, and a person’s medical preferences and choices regarding vaccination, as well as any other treatment, should remain their private information.

A Deeper Dive Into the CDC Reversal 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

How many people on the planet have now been acculturated to top-down control, socialized to live in fear, accept whatever comes down from above, never to question an edict, and expect to live in a world of rolling man-made disasters? And was that the point after all, to breed low expectations for life on earth and relinquish the soul’s desire for a full and free life?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

With the passage of time, as evidence mounted of the folly of Zero Covid policy and the accumulating harms it was causing, the New Zealand government was trapped in a prison of its own construction and found it difficult to change course, even after the futility of the entire program became obvious in the data.

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

A lingering disorder that can last for months or years is affecting an increasing proportion of the workforce. The symptoms that contribute to Long Covid could be a result of pandemic measures and masking in particular. Increased exposure to microplastics, nanoparticles, chemicals in masks and nasopharyngeal tests parallel many of the symptoms that define Long Covid.

Why I Signed the Great Barrington Declaration

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The Declaration merely reminded humanity of what was until early 2020 the consensus among public-health officials, including those at the World Health Organization, of the best means of dealing with respiratory pandemics. All the GBD did, really, was to advise that long-standing consensus be regained and followed.

The Brutalization of Compassion 

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

During the Covid era, we see the same schema writ large in the responses taken by governments across the globe. For the first time in human history, the availability of mass-testing allowed us to convince ourselves that we could measure the health of the population, holistically, in real time, and to generate precise statistics permitting us to do so – right down to the last ‘case’ or ‘death’.

The Disastrous High-Tech War on a Pathogen

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

If we carefully analyze each aspect of “world war” on Covid-19, we can see how each tactic and high-tech “weapon” has harmed human health, destabilized civil society, and possibly disrupted the ecological balance between the human population and the virus, while enriching private interests and empowering financially captured government regulators.

“If We Get Covid, So Be It”

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Australia just elevated Covid hypocrisy to a whole new level. They arrived in Birmingham deeply troubled by the English approach to “living with the virus.” Maybe they will return home with the epiphany that in the final analysis, that is the only way to live.
