Les Femmes blog — Do you feel like you’re living in a dystopian novel? Do you wonder what the end game really is? Do the censorship and attacks on medical people who deviate from the official narrative concern you? What do you think the economic impact will be for the country as we go forward? Do all the unintended consequences of the lockdown worry you? Are you curious about why politicians are telling the medical profession how to treat a disease? Lots of questions! I’m sure you have some of your own.
Let’s just look at a few random facts.
- YouTube took down the videos by the two Bakersfield doctors who disagreed with the COVID 19 approach (which, by the way, are still available at the TV station? website which you can access from my original blog post). Why? Because two medical groups went after them. I find that interesting. Do you think those groups could possibly have a hidden agenda?Remember when the APA removed homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders? They continue to try to normalize adult/child sex. Is that about medicine and psychology or about politics and political correctness? Consider that the AMA (American Medical Association) supports abortion and that many pro-life doctors withdrew to form their own groups. Scientists disagree. In the best of all possible worlds, the disagreement is public, vigorous, respectful, and based on facts and the scientific method of discovery. Real scientists don’t just shut down disagreement with ad hominem attacks. There was a time when blood-letting and unsanitary practices were standard medicine. Those like Louis Pasteur who disagreed were ridiculed and ostracized. Think about that when you see those who disagree with the WHO model being censored and attacked and ask yourself, “What’s really going on here?”
- More doctors, like the two in Bakersfield, are questioning what’s going on. I recommend an article by Rod Dreher quoting from a Wyoming doctor’s letter (anonymously) who was appalled at the censorship and shared some of his own experience with the unintended consequences of the lockdown. “…for the last three weeks, my number of COVID patients has been absolutely dwarfed by the number of patients with acute anxiety, depression, wife beating, child beating, suicidal ideation, and any number of young grown men crying like babies on televisits or in my office. Large numbers of people are losing their livelihood, and they are freaking out. We are headed for a severe tragedy in this society, and its name is not COVID.” This doctor points out that nothing in the original posts by Dr. Erickson and his associate was “…inflammatory.They were not instructing anyone to harm themselves. They were doing nothing but questioning the current narrative and the current recommendations from the authorities.” And yet they were shut down. Why? Are we as a people willing to accept censorship from the likes of Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and other elitists who control massive empires that fit C.S. Lewis’ description of the evil bureaucracy in That Hideous Strength? I’m not!
- Now on to the economic impact. Pat Buchanan asks What Price Victory — in the Coronavirus War? He calls it a “good and necessary war to kill the virus” but asks what the “deliberate decision to shut down the country and carpet-bomb our own economy, upon which we all depend, tell us about what we Americans value?” Can a country that sent hundreds of thousands into wars both here and around the world, a country that kills millions of its own children every year, really claim this is about caring for human life? (my question, not Buchanan’s) I don’t think so. The economic fallout is lining up to rival the Great Depression. Here are a few facts Buchanana cites and questions he asks. “Economists at J.P. Morgan are forecasting that the U.S. gross domestic product will fall by 40 percent this spring and unemployment will reach 20 percent of the labor force this month….How many millions of sick and elderly have we sent into solitary confinement? How many families have we forced into a daily struggle for the means to put food on the table and get medicine from the pharmacy?….The longer the shutdown continues, the broader, deeper, and more enduring the losses the country will sustain.”
Do you believe that, Christian?
