In Brief

  • The Facts:

    UFO disclosure within the mainstream continues to ramp up every-single year, as the topic continues to be legitimized in ways that we've never seen before.

  • Reflect On:

    Is mainstream UFO disclosure a type of 'controlled narrative,' one that could perhaps be used for ulterior motives?

The topic of UFOs and extraterrestrials, as well as the possible extra-dimensional origins of these supposed ‘intelligences’ and craft continues to gain rapid popularity and credible disclosure within the mainstream, and that’s because of the fact that the UFO phenomenon is indeed real. These objects are spotted, photographed, recorded on video, commonly tracked on radar and observed by military pilots who are scrambled to take a closer look. This is evidence that can’t be denied, which is why  Christopher Mellon, who served 30 years in the federal government and was Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for Intelligence from 1997  to 2002, has published detailed articles for outlets like The Hill as well as The Washington Post emphasizing the reality and seriousness of this subject. He is one of several to do so.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to see this type of UFO mainstream disclosure taking place, although it’s unfortunate that the topic, or any topic for that matter,  has to be taken seriously by mainstream media for many to even take the subject seriously. This type of disclosure is well overdue given the fact that there has been a long campaign of “official secrecy and ridicule,” as stated by Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, the very first director of the CIA. (source)

But why now? The topic of UFOs has been gaining a tremendous amount of popularity and credibility, not only from the type of sources listed above, but also from a slew of credible ‘whistleblowers’ from intelligence agents, ex-government officials, high-ranking military personnel, astronauts, an many more who have been and are disclosing this reality. There was and has been more than ample evidence to show that UFOs are real, that there are “objects in our atmosphere which are technically miles in advance of anything we can deploy.” (Lord Admiral Hill Norton, Former Chairman of the NATO Military Committee)

So again, why now?

It seems that mainstream media had no choice but to jump on the topic and attempt to control it. Like I said, mainstream coverage on the topic of UFOs is great, but one cannot help but point out the fact that mainstream media outlets, or as I like to refer to them, establishment mouthpieces, have been feeding us disinformation and misinformation since their inception. Does this mean they plan to do the same thing with UFOs?

Operation mockingbird is a great example, but it seems like it’s still going on today. Dr. Udo Ulfkottewho was a top German journalist and editor and has been for more than two decades, went on the record stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also mentioning that noncompliance would result in him losing his job. William Arkin, a longtime well known military and war reporter who is best known for his groundbreaking, three-part Washington Post series on the Black Budget in 2010 has gone public outing NBC/MSNBC as completely fake government run agencies. You can read more about that here.  There are even declassified documents that clearly show the relationship that intelligence agencies like the CIA have with mainstream media, as well as academia.

This is important to note.

Why is this important to recognize? It’s simple, because again, all we’ve seen is deception, at least for the most part, which is why it raises an eyebrow how people with backgrounds like Mellon, all of a sudden, are able to publish serious pieces in these media outlets about the topic of UFOs. What about all of the other activists, researchers and whistleblowers over the years? Why are they not receiving any attention at all? Was the UFO topic becoming so popular that ‘the powers that be’ are now simply trying to control the narrative of the subject? And if so, what are they trying to do with it? This is just speculation on my part, and I am sure on the part of many other researchers out there.

The Threat Narrative

One thing that seems to rub me the wrong way about mainstream UFO disclosure is what seems to be a constant ‘threat narrative.’ This is a phenomenon that dates back hundreds, if not thousands of years. Cases have ben documented for a very, very long time. If there was some sort of ‘extraterrestrial threat’ or a threat to national security by these objects, if they are extraterrestrial in origin, wouldn’t some type of ‘event’ have already taken place by now? Why is it that a ‘threat’ narrative always seems to accompany any type of UFO disclosure by the mainstream? Perhaps the elite want to weaponize space? Perhaps they want to present it as a threat, the same way they present terrorism as a threat? To justify immoral actions? These are all important points to consider given the fact that we’ve already been lied to and misled on so many other major topics. Why should the topic of UFOs be any different?

That being said, perhaps there is no threat type of agenda here, more on that in a bit.

This phenomenon is deep, and to anybody who is researching it knows that it’s not fair to a number of researchers and experts who have been left out of this process of mainstream disclosure. Mainstream disclosure also doesn’t address all of the information and evidence that’s piled up over the years. It’s simply, government, or perhaps, ‘deep state’ disclosure. The narrative is controlled, and despite the vastness of this subject, we are simply getting a narrowed down view of the phenomenon, whether the intentions of mainstream UFO disclosure are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ remains to be seen.

Now, I am not saying that malevolent forces from other world’s don’t exist, and I’m not saying benevolent forces don’t either. Based on all of my research over the past decade, there are no doubt some disturbing aspects that are associated with this phenomenon. The phenomenon itself, whether benevolent or malevolent, is in itself a disturbing paradigm buster for many people. There are also opposite, and uplifting factors that go hand in hand with the phenomenon as well. We as a collective are not yet ready for mass disclosure and all of its implications. If we were, it would have happened already. Perhaps it’s happening slowly at a pace that best suits human consciousness? Perhaps the ‘deep state’ or people in power aren’t control of disclosure? Perhaps we are? Perhaps ‘they’ are, perhaps it happens on ‘their’ terms, when we are ready, and not ours?

 Some malevolent aspects of this phenomenon may even be connected to our own government, like abductions, for example. There are reasons to believe that a large majority of forced abduction experiences are actually government run psychological warfare experiments. In his book, “Forbidden Science 4,” Dr. Jacques Valle explains how he came in possession documents showing that forced “UFO abductions” were conducted by the CIA as psychological warfare experiments. You can read more about that here.

A former member of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Richard Doty, has also claimed the same thing. And that he was one of many who were tasked with spreading disinformation into the field. You can read more about that here. Government agencies have long infiltrated the field for the sole purpose of spreading disinformation, in order to drive researchers and investigators far away from the truth. This is something that is still happening, at large, today, in my opinion.

Is mainstream UFO disclosure part of this disinformation campaign? So far it doesn’t look like it, as they’ve done a good job bringing legitimacy to the reality of the phenomenon. But we have yet to see how far they go.

With regards to mainstream UFO disclosure, Mellon, and the organization he is a part of (Tom Delonge’s TTSA), are doing a great job of bringing awareness to a real phenomenon, however, again, the term ‘threat’ seems to be used constantly, especially by a former Pentagon official that’s part of the team, Louis Elizondo. Elizondo was part of the now disclosed Ariel Threat’s program at the Pentagon, one that tracked and kept a close watch on UFOs that entered into our atmosphere.

The New York Times broke the story about a secret Pentagon program, but any UFO researcher knows these programs are more in-depth, expensive, and expansive than anything that’s described in that article.

Elizondo has emphasized on multiple occasions that he believes these objects are indeed extraterrestrial in origin. In the clip linked in this sentence, he also mentioned a ‘potential threat’ multiple times.

The Threat Narrative Is Understandable, But…

This is not to say that perceiving these objects as a potential threat is not justified, but for years these objects have performed evasive maneuvers. The fact is, from a military point of view, it’s understandable why these are perceived as a threat. It’s not illogical, after all, these objects are technologically more advanced than any air craft known to man. If something is violating air space and hovering over nuclear missile facilities, for example, which they often do, it would be irresponsible for our military not to at least consider a possible threat, at least at our current level of human consciousness.

The evasive characteristics and efforts to avoid our own aircraft has been emphasized by multiple people, like Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer, for example, who said that these objects commonly take “corrective measures to avoid our aircraft,” and that our military tends to “shoot first and ask questions after.” (source)  Don’t forget four start General Nathan Twinning, who stated in a declassified intelligence document decades ago that,

“The phenomenon is something real and not visionary or fictitious. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and motion which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly air-craft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically, or remotely.” (source)

There are a trove of declassified documented cases that also show the same thing.

We must ask ourselves, are these objects genuine threats? Have they shown themselves to be threats? Has their behaviour been indicative of any type of ‘threat’ activity?  There are some cases you could maybe argue that yes, their behaviour has been aggressive, but for the most part based on my research, there isn’t really much to base a ‘threat’ narrative off of when it comes to the examination of how these objects have been observed and recorded. There are literally, practically zero cases that represent that type of behaviour.

The way mainstream UFO disclosure stands right now, it’s not an extreme, over the top ‘threat’ type of narrative as of yet, but it’s there, no doubt, and it seems to be the only perspective that’s being pushed without considering other possibilities.

Is this being done for ulterior motives, or is it innocent? I don’t know.

Again, unidentified flying objects entering into our airspace, hovering over nuclear bases, tampering with nuclear weapons, etc, from our level of perception, it’s easy to see how this type of activity is perceived as a threat, but is there a fear mongering agenda here or is this perception simply necessary, at least from our current level of consciousness?  Is there an agenda here? Or is this just a natural expected narrative ?I’ll let you decide. There have been suggestions from people with interesting backgrounds that a threat narrative is being used for a supposed false flag alien invasion, but I’m not going to go into that here.  You can read more about it here.

The classified black budget world would have to be really advanced to pull that off, perhaps they are.

It’s also important to mention that there is no easy way to disclose the reality of this phenomenon. Mainstream UFO disclosure can’t simply burst out and hit the unawakened population with certain truths about this topic. It’s disturbing in many ways as it is uplifting and encouraging. There are many dimensions and aspects to this phenomenon, and it opens up countless amounts of questions that veer off into many other related fields. It’s a paradigm buster.

At the end of the day, regardless of how they are perceived by our military and our elite authority agencies, the fact remains that a large majority of cases clearly show no hostility, and are not indicative at all of any type of hostility. Sure, they may be intrusive, curious, and strange, but agin, the phenomenon seems to be older than we are, and we still have no clear signs of hostility as of yet. If anything, I’d imagine that our race is the one that ‘they’ have to be cautious of.

So, again, we have to ask ourselves, is a threat narrative being pushed? Are good people who believe we should be pre-cautious and perceive them as a threat being used to push some sort of ulterior agenda? Or is it simply ‘protocol’ to assume the ‘threat’ narrative?

The Takeaway

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this topic truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. It has huge implications, spiritually, technologically, historically and scientifically. The process of disclosure is long, and it wont come from any type of authority figure, it will happen naturally, in my opinion, as time goes on and as the collective mind opens up to the fact that we are not alone in the universe, and that we have been and are being visited for a very long time.

Florida Education Minister Urges Schools To Drop Mask Mandates

CE Staff Writer 9 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said schools should make mask-wearing voluntary in the 2021-2022 school year, stating that they should simply be optional.

  • Reflect On:

    Why is one narrative being pushed hard, while the other is being heavily ridiculed and labelled as "dangerous" by mainstream media and government?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened: Earlier this week, Florida’s education commissioner directed all schools to drop mask mandates for the next school year because, according to him, they are not necessary and can simply be an optional measure for students and parents. According to him, mask policies “do not impact the spread of the virus” and they “may impede instruction” for some students. The decision is not up to him, however, as each individual district will ultimately decide whether or not they want to impose mask mandes for next school year.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently convened a round table on public health. At that discussion, Professor of Medicine at Stanford University Dr. Jay Bhattacharya stated that “masks have not only been not effective but have been harmful.”

The video of this discussion was removed from YouTube, and then ridiculed hard by mainstream media. This has been a big problem throughout this pandemic. We have big tech “fact-checkers” going around the internet censoring and removing any kind of narrative that does not fit within the framework or narrative that government health authorities are telling us. If things were so obvious, why would they need to censor world renowned experts?  It’s been a common theme, and Bhattacharya is one of many who have been subjected to this type of treatment.

He’s one of the three initiators of The Great Barrington Declaration. The other two are  Dr. Sunetra Gupta, PhD Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology at the University of Oxford and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, PhD, Professor of Medicine at Harvard, Infectious Disease Epidemiologist. You can watch an interesting discussion with all three of them here if interested.

Bhattacharya responded to the criticism in a recent piece he wrote for the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) stating the following:

I attended a public-policy roundtable hosted by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis last month. The point was to discuss the state’s Covid policies in the months ahead. That 600,000 Americans have died with Covid-19 is evidence that the lockdowns over the past year, including significant restrictions on the lives of children, haven’t worked. Florida reopened in May and declined to shut down again. Yet age-adjusted mortality is lower in Florida than in locked-down California, and Florida’s public schools are almost all open, while California’s aren’t.

My fellow panelists—Sunetra Gupta of Oxford, Martin Kulldorff of Harvard and Scott Atlas of Stanford—and I discussed a variety of topics. One was the wisdom of requiring children to wear masks. The press asked questions, and a video of the event was posted on YouTube by local media, including Tampa’s WTSP.

But last week YouTube removed a recording of this routine policy discussion from its website. The company claimed my fellow panel members and I were trafficking in misinformation. The company said it removed the video “because it included content that contradicts the consensus of local and global health authorities regarding the efficacy of masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

Yet the panelists are all experts, and all spoke against requiring children to wear masks. I can’t speak for my counterparts, but my reasoning was a cost-benefit analysis. The benefits of masking children are small to none; the costs are much higher.

The scientific evidence is clear.

He then goes on to cite site some science.

Kari Stefansson, senior author of a study  study from Iceland conducted early in the epidemic when masking was uncommon showing that incidents of covid in children is far less than adults, stated that children are “less likely to get infected than adults and if they get infected, they are less likely to get seriously ill. What is interesting is that even if children do get infected, they are less likely to transmit the disease to others than adults.”

According to Bhattacharya, “many studies in the scientific literature reach a similar conclusion: Even unmasked children pose less of a risk for disease spread than adults.”

For example, Jonas F Ludvigsson, a paediatrician at Örebro University Hospital and professor of clinical epidemiology at the Karolinska Institute wrote letter to the editor published in the New England Journal of Medicine titled “Open Schools, Covid-19, and Child and Teacher Morbidity in Sweden” has found that “Despite Sweden’s having kept schools and preschools open, we found a low incidence of severe Covid-19 among schoolchildren and children of preschool age during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic…No child with Covid-19 died…Among the 1,951,905 children who were 1 to 16 years of age, 15 children had Covid-19, MIS-C, or both conditions and were admitted to an ICU, which is equal to 1 child in 130,000.”

You can read more about this specific story here, as he has quit his research due to the harassment he received for simply presenting data.

Why This Is Important: So, there are the points made above, and then there are papers outlining the supposed dangers and ineffectiveness of masks. Many have been published in peer-reviewed scientific/medical journals prior to covid, and during covid.

For example, one paper titled “Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis” concludes:

The existing scientific evidences challenge the safety and efficacy of wearing facemask as preventive intervention for COVID-19. The data suggest that both medical and non-medical facemasks are ineffective to block human-to-human transmission of viral and infectious disease such SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, supporting against the usage of facemasks. Wearing facemasks has been demonstrated to have substantial adverse physiological and psychological effects. These include hypoxia, hypercapnia, shortness of breath, increased acidity and toxicity, activation of fear and stress response, rise in stress hormones, immunosuppression, fatigue, headaches, decline in cognitive performance, predisposition for viral and infectious illnesses, chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Long-term consequences of wearing facemask can cause health deterioration, developing and progression of chronic diseases and premature death. Governments, policy makers and health organizations should utilize prosper and scientific evidence-based approach with respect to wearing facemasks, when the latter is considered as preventive intervention for public health.

I’ve written about a study published in the New England Medical Journal by Harvard doctors that outlines how it’s already known that masks provide little to zero benefit when it comes to protection in a public setting. According to them,

We know that wearing a mask outside health care facilities offers little, if any, protection from infection. Public health authorities define a significant exposure to Covid-19 as face-to-face contact within 6 feet with a patient with symptomatic Covid-19 that is sustained for at least a few minutes (and some say more than 10 minutes or even 30 minutes). The chance of catching Covid-19 from a passing interaction in a public space is therefore minimal. In many cases, the desire for widespread masking is a reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic.

The papers cited above are a few of many, there are a plethora of them available within the scientific literature.

YES, there are also studies that claim and explain why they believe masks are an effective tool to mitigate the virus, and we know that organizations like the Centres For Disease Control (CDC) deem them to be extremely effective and necessary.  The point is, why are those who point out, explain, and provide evidence and reason for the idea that masks are not effective being heavily censored, vilified, and ridiculed? What’s going on here? Why is proper debate and discussion being completely shut down and why are those who are creating awareness about these issues labelled as “dangerous anti-maskers.” This, in my opinion is quite frankly, insane and completely anti-scientific.

Perhaps I can offer an explanation, it’s because any type of information, data or evidence, no matter how credible, that opposes the measures and narrative of government and big media threatens various business/agendas in these powerful circles. It begs the question, does government and government affiliated health/business really look out for what’s best for its citizens? The covid pandemic has definitely served as a catalyst for more people to ask that question who wouldn’t have prior to the pandemic.

This is just my opinion, but in presenting it I put our platform, Collective Evolution, at risk being punished in various ways for simply sharing it.

The Takeaway: At the end of the day, it’s not about who is right or wrong, the fact that simple discussion and pieces of evidence that change the narrative, or threaten it, is being shut down, censored and completely ridiculed is quite concerning. The mainstream media continues to fail to have appropriate conversations surrounding all things covid while forcing their narrative on the public. This in turn has created a great divide among the citizenry when really, we should all be coming together and respecting everybody’s decision to act as they please.

When things are not so cut and dry, it’s questionable whether or not we should really give governments the ability to control our lives in the manner they have done with this pandemic.

Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health. Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency—a time when it is even more important to safeguard science. –

He is editor of the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine and JRSM Open. Taken from his published a piece in the BMJ, titled “Covid-19: politicisation, “corruption,” and suppression of science.”

Ontario, Canada To Impose Stricter Measures: Lockdown & Stay At Home Orders Are Not Working

CE Staff Writer 5 minute read

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Ontario (Canada) government is set to impose even more restrictions and enforcement on the citizenry despite already being in lockdown and stay at home order mode. The announcement will be made this afternoon.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do governments continue to ignore the vast amount of research and data that's been published showing lockdowns and other restrictions do nothing to stop the spread of covid, and are probably doing more harm than covid?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened: Ontario, Canada is and has been well into a province wide lockdown and stay at home order. Most businesses, if not already permanently closed from going out of business, have been reduced to curb side pick-ups only, while essential stores, like grocery stores, have remained open. This has been ongoing, on and off, as all of you know for more than one year now.

This afternoon, the government is set to announce even more restrictions.

According to CTV News Toronto,

Sources tell CTV News Toronto and CP24 the latest data, which is expected to be released on Friday, shows that based on Ontario’s current trends there could be between 12,000 to 18,000 new daily infections by the end of May, with up to 1,800 patients in intensive care. The measures under consideration include shutting down construction to just critical infrastructure projects and placing limits on non-essential manufacturing and warehousing. Additional restrictions on religious services are also being considered by cabinet.

Ontario is also considering more enforcement with regards to fines for those who disobey rules, and perhaps shutting down curb side pick-ups of some non-essential retailers.

Cases, however, are still accelerating exponentially. A lot of “fear-mongering” and concern is being raised by government public health officials, doctors and scientists. On the other hand, you have a number of doctors and scientists who are not as concerned, explaining that the number of cases, and rising case numbers are not as big of a threat as it’s being made to be, especially given the fact that infection can provide an immunity that is stronger than the supposed immunity a vaccine can provide. They have also been pointing out that we are dealing with a virus that has a very low mortality rate, 99.95 percent and higher for people under the age of 70, to be exact.

Many in the field have been creating awareness around the catastrophic impacts of lockdowns, providing data showing that lockdown measures around the globe may have already killed more people than covid itself, and will have lasting impacts for years to come while they affect most aspects of humanity. Furthermore, they’ve also presented a wealth of data showing that lockdowns are not effective at all at stopping the spread of the virus, that they are, essentially, useless.

This is quite confusing, if lockdowns and restrictions do nothing to curb the spread, why is government, especially the Ontario government, acting like they are effective and necessary tools? Why do they also completely ignore the idea that lockdowns may be completely ineffective and more harmful? This is a discussion that has not at all been had within the mainstream, and renowned experts in the field who are presenting this data have been completely ignored, censored and in many cases ridiculed.

Another point that’s being used to justify restriction measures is the fact that hospitals in Ontario are at capacity, and ICUs are full. This has always been a concern in many countries, especially in Ontario, Canada. For example, in 2017 more than 50 percent of hospitals in Ontario were above 100 percent capacity. There are examples all over the world for the past decade. That being said, is covid adding to this, or is it simply something we’ve always seen in hospitals? Is the only difference big media coverage?

Why This Is Important: Sure, many people might agree with lockdowns and other mandates. It’s hard to hear, however, the Ontario government constantly blaming portions of the population for the fact that they are not being effective, without ever considering, as again something that’s been shown time and time again in several countries, that lockdowns are simply not effective in stopping the spread. If this is the case, it renders lockdowns useless and paints a bad picture for government, which would be the fact that they’ve done nothing but put people in harm’s way.

In the case of covid, it’s quite clear that people of all backgrounds and professions are split. You even have world renowned experts in the field split on these issues, with many opposing and supporting measures. This as a result has many people confused, and it begs the question, should government really have the authority to put mandates into place that restrict our movement, rights and freedoms? Is this really about the virus, or about the benefits that big tech, health and government will reap and have been reaping from this pandemic? When measures go against the will of so many people, should government not be allowed to mandate such measures and instead, present their science and make recommendations to people, leaving them the choice to act in ways they see fit? Are we living in an age where government and big tech are doing the thinking for us, telling us what is and isn’t and trying to control our lives more and more every single year? How do we stop this? Why do we continue to comply? One thing is certain, covid has been a great catalyst for more and more people to really question what type of world we are currently living in.

Renowned Professors Explain The Harms of Lockdowns & The Dangers of Censorship

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Two Ontario doctors recently hosted a video conference with three renowned infectious disease experts explaining the danger and harms of lockdowns and the censorship of information that we've witnessed during this pandemic.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does the mainstream fail to have conversations about "controversial" topics?

Before you begin...

Coherent icon

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

What Happened:  President and Co-Founder of Your Ontario Doctors and frontline physician Dr. Kulvinder Kaur recently sat down with Dr. Richard Schabas, MD, Former Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario, Canada, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD Professor of Medicine at Stanford University, Epidemiologist, Dr. Sunetra Gupta, PhD Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology at the University of Oxford and Dr. Martin Kulldorff, PhD, Professor of Medicine at Harvard, Infectious Disease Epidemiologist. Bhattacharya, Gupta and Kulldorff were the initiators behind The Great Barrington Declaration.

In the video below they discuss the harms of lockdown and the dangerous of censorship, as well as a path forward. Throughout this pandemic, numerous studies have found that lockdowns have been quite ineffective at stopping the spread of covid. You can access some of those studies and read more about it here for more examples and an in depth discussion. I also recently published an article about two renowned Swedish scientists/epidemiologists who have gone through the data from UNICEF and UNAIDS, and came to the conclusion that least as many people have died as a result of the restrictions to fight covid as have died of covid. You can read more about that here.

Obviously, as you probably already know, there is information on both sides of the coin when it comes to all things covid. What doesn’t bode well, however, is the fact that one side is being completely unacknowledged, ignored, and censored within the mainstream. Some experts have not been given a voice, and discussion has been completely shut down. When certain information, data/evidence or opinion goes “against the grain” and gains some sort of “virality” it then seems to be heavily ridiculed within the mainstream and labelled a “conspiracy theory.” It seems mainstream media along with government health authorities don’t even want to entertain the idea of having a discussion with experts who oppose their narrative. They simply continue to push forth their viewpoints and perspective as the ultimate truth.

This type of censorship, and the entire pandemic has truly served as a catalyst for ‘ordinary’ citizens, doctors and scientists to really question what type of world we are currently living in as well as the intentions of government and ‘big health.’ This is a very encouraging thing to see, but what’s more important is that everyday people who disagree with each other really need to start empathizing with each other.

I decided to share the video below because, whether you agree or disagree is not important. What’s important is that everybody in the field gets to share their perspective, openly and freely without being subjected to censorship. What’s happening during this pandemic is quite unfair, immoral, unethical and harmful, which is why it’s so important to share discussions like this.

The Takeaway: Society must have controversial conversations in a meaningful way. We are not getting anywhere by taking authoritarian actions that harm the well being of general society and our ability to stay connected as communities. Mainstream culture is expecting everyone to side with the idea that fringe ‘conspiracy theories’ are undermining truth in society, yet mainstream culture does not want to take responsibility for its role in this phenomenon via censorship and corporate favoritism.

At the end of the day, it’s quite clear that things with regards to the pandemic are not as clear as mainstream media is making them out to be. Lockdowns and other “authoritarian” measures taken by governments, although supported by many people are also heavily opposed by many people. When this is the case and things aren’t as black and white has they are being made out to be, should the government simply not make recommendations and let the people decide for themselves? Should we really give them the authority to put into place such mandates that they have when there are such enormous consequences as a result and when it’s not even clear if they (the mandates) are effective?
