...where real knowledge intersects with real Americans!

HEY, People! Please don't just read what I post here (or anywhere), and nod your head sagely or approvingly and then move on to other things. I don't post in order to affirm your sense of things. I post in order to equip you with perspectives and arguments with which to educate others, and in the expectation that you will forward my posts to other people (or direct them to those posts). PLEASE do those things.

We won't win by YOU knowing what I present. We will win by LOTS OF OTHERS knowing what I present.


A Few More Voices (Including An Appellate Court) Talking Sense About C19
...and exposing the crass and criminal political game-playing by which this unremarkable virus is being used to destroy lives, liberty and the rule of law.

ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, the Edmonton, Alberta Community and Public Services Committee held a "zoom" hearing concerning, among other things, a proposed extension of its existing "Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings Bylaw". Many people spoke in regard to the proposal; the words of one unusually-qualified expert speaker, Dr. Roger Hodkinson, merit particular attention: Listen to Hodkison's four-and-a-half minute statement here.

In his remarks, Hodkison refers to "the Great Barrington Declaration". This "Declaration" is a statement initially made in Great Barrington, Massachusetts in early October by Drs. Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford University Medical School, a physician, epidemiologist, health economist, and public health policy expert focusing on infectious diseases and vulnerable populations; Sunetra Gupta, professor at Oxford University, an epidemiologist with expertise in immunology, vaccine development, and mathematical modeling of infectious diseases; and Martin Kulldorff, professor of medicine at Harvard University, a biostatistician, and epidemiologist with expertise in detecting and monitoring infectious disease outbreaks and vaccine safety evaluations.

Since its initial posting, the Declaration-- which reflects the same in-depth knowledgeable consideration of the actual facts of C19 and the pernicious use of induced public panic in response to the virus by political and commercial interests briefly presented by Dr. Hodkinson-- has been endorsed (as of November 21, 2020) by 35,237 medical practitioners, 12,115 medical and public health scientists, and 638,924 concerned citizens. Here is its text:

The Real Story Of Thanksgiving
Do yourself and society a favor-- read this to your kids.

THANKSGIVING DAY IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE special days of the year, and not because of the great food. The real virtues of this unique American celebration lie in the lessons in humility and maturity offered by its history.

The virtuous lessons to which I refer are offered only by Thanksgiving's true history, however. That true history is the exact opposite of the bogus, "Thank God (sorry... politically incorrect... make that, "Thank Fortuitous Random Chance") we were saved from starvation by the generosity of our neighbors-- see how wonderful socialism can be!" nonsense which too many Americans have been misled into imagining to be the truth.

In fact, the feast we commemorate on the fourth Thursday of November had nothing whatsoever to do with "generosity". What we actually commemorate on Thanksgiving is the Plymouth Rock colonists' recognition of the evils of socialism and the goodness of Adam Smith's "invisible hand" of profit-motivation unleashed by security in property rights.

It was that 11th-hour epiphany after a disastrous experiment with communitarian soulfulness that saved the colony from starvation. Thanks be to God, indeed, for that merciful and timely grant of wisdom.

IN VERY BRIEF SUMMARY, the Plymouth Rock colony began as a commune, organized under the principle that the proceeds of every individual's labors would be claimed of right by the community as a whole, and then redistributed in equal measure to every member. This system lasted for several years, during which the colony grew ever more hungry and impoverished.

Unable to keep the fruit of their labors for themselves, and with the unproductive receiving the same out of the communal resources as those who worked hard, soon no one worked hard. To do so was a fool's game.

The only competition un-smothered by the communitarian rule was the race to the bottom in the avoidance of labor. Every year the crops were thinner; every year the shares distributed to each colonist were more meager.

Finally, in 1623 and on the verge of the colony's failure (that is, the death of all the colonists), the feel-good socialist lunacy was recognized as the deadly mental virus that it is. The ruinous pretense that the community had a rightful claim on the food produced by each member was abandoned, and the colonist's rights to their own production was secured.

As it was recounted (in third-person format) in 1623 by William Bradford, Governor of the Colony:

'Six Factors Which Point To A Rigged Election'
The mainstream media are quick to call the claim "baseless", but there's plenty of evidence for anyone willing to see it.
