Brownstone Institute - The Fairy Tale of Pandemic Risk

The Fairy Tale of Pandemic Risk

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Public health has come into its own over the past few years; a once-backwater profession now promoted to be the arbiters of liberty and human relationships. Outbreaks of diseases associated with death at an average age of about 80, or even purely hypothetical, are now sufficient reason to close workplaces, close schools, upend economies and convince people to turn on their noncompliant neighbors. The result, while impoverishing the many, has driven an unprecedented concentration of wealth.

Brownstone Institute - Pfizer Never Stops Gaslighting Us

Pfizer Never Stops Gaslighting Us

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Pfizer’s cheery Super Bowl ad cannot change the fact that they never tested their BNT162b2 vaccine during clinical trials to see if it prevented transmission of Covid-19. Nor did Pfizer stop distribution when 90 days into the vaccination campaign, there had already been 1,123 vaccine-related deaths, and over 40,000 vaccine injuries.

The Covid Resistance Deserves the Nobel Peace Prize

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

It’s hard to see the Norwegian Nobel Committee defying the suffocating Covid narrative that took over the Western world, with a very few honourable exceptions. Of course if they were to do so, that would really stir things up and help to dismantle the narrative. One can but hope for the best while expecting otherwise.

The Wuhan Cover-Up by RFK, Jr.: Review and Analysis

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The Wuhan Cover-Up does a better job than any other book or article I have read at exposing the trends, forces, and institutions that brought us the Covid catastrophe – with hundreds of pages of notes and references. What’s frightening is that the enormity of the problem is beyond the scope of the book, not just to solve, but even to fully acknowledge.

Conspiracy Theory Debunker Finds Real Conspiracies

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

The 2023 book Misbelief by Dan Ariely belongs to a genre I would label “debunking Covid conspiracy theories.” The book is meant to explore the thought process of people who subscribe to conspiracy theories, especially about Covid and the Covid vaccines. Thus I was surprised to encounter in the book two stories in which the author uncovered real conspiracies to hide information about Covid from the public.

Trump’s Covid Response Casts a Long Shadow

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Neither candidate has any reason to bring up the issue of the pandemic response. The situation is somewhat akin to the Mutually Assured Destruction doctrine of the Cold War – we won’t push the button if you don’t push the button and neither of us should push the button because we’re both going to die if we do.

The FDA and Vaccine Manufacturers Refuse to Show Us Their Work

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Not only are the test results confidential, even the methodology used hasn’t been made public. The world just has to take manufacturers’ word that there’s no contamination or variability with the mRNA sequence or its lipid nanoparticle components – even though published epidemiology data indicate otherwise.

Brownstone Institute - CDC’s Vaccine-Efficacy Epidemiologic Incompetence

CDC’s Vaccine-Efficacy Epidemiologic Incompetence

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Periodically during the Covid-19 pandemic, CDC scientific staff have employed their available studies’ data to estimate the efficacy of current or recent versions of Covid-19 vaccines to reduce risk of testing positive for Covid-19. While the fact of “testing positive” has been somewhat controversial because of the secret PCR Ct threshold numbers involved that have allowed for uninfectious people with unrecognized Covid-19 from some weeks in the past to remain test-positive, my goal here is to illustrate CDC’s problematic epidemiologic methods that have substantially inflated the vaccine efficacy percents that they have reported.

Brownstone Institute - Our Last Innocent Moment

What Killed Informed Consent?

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

In more and less formal ways, COVID was the tool that transformed our supposedly inalienable right to make informed choices about our private lives into a public and readily dispensable good. It was almost as if we had built such a network of infinitesimal choices creating the powerful illusion of choice that we didn’t notice when we were asked to give it all up in an instant.

The Rise and Fall of Quality Improvement in America

SHARE | PRINT | EMAIL

Today, they are actively trying to bulldoze the Constitution, believing that they have achieved a critical mass of support to carry this out successfully. They may be right. However, if they are successful, the useful idiots who created the critical mass will become nothing but useless eaters, once the progressive goals are achieved, and a totalitarian state is firmly in place. Hopefully, these people will realize before it’s too late that this will not improve their quality of life (QI), and as such, are not good national or individual trajectories.
