    Most Insidious Aspect of Wuhan Virus not True.

    Asymptomatic Carriers are not super spreaders like we were lead to believe. I think my greatest initial fear was to catch this disease from someone who did not know they have it. I mean, if I am around anyone coughing or sneezing, I get away from them immediately anyhow, but we were told there were people out there spreading the disease who didn't know they had it.....sounded like B.S. and in hindsight, it was just that.

    Now, the ever infamous WHO is even saying it would be difficult for a Asymptomatic person to spread or convey the virus. As a general rule, I don't swap spit with other folks, so I am probably safe.

    So then:

    A. Are you now believing WHO or not?

    B. Is it not possible that they know more about covid-19 now than they did five months ago?

    This original theory was designed IMO to engender the maximum amount of fear in the global population. It is the prima facie evidence of manipulation by the WHO which is a client of the Communists in China.

Freedom has cost the blood of millions in obscure places and in historic sites ranging from Gettysburg to the Gulag Archipelago . . .That something that cost so much in human lives should be surrendered piecemeal in exchange for visions and rhetoric seems grotesque. Freedom is not simply the right of intellectuals to circulate their merchandise. It is, above all, the right of ordinary people to find elbow room for themselves and a refuge from the rampaging presumptions of their ‘betters’.” Thomas Sowell

    I am to the point that I don't believe anything that comes from the news media. The WHO is another one that would be hard to believe. After the way the WHO tried to cover up for the China?.

    As we learn more and more, it becomes more obvious that Kung Flu is the seasonal flu, overhyped into citizen subjugation.

    So, who is right?
    Yes.

    Who is telling the truth?
    Of course!

    I mean, you trust who?
    Absolutely, they've always told us the truth!

    Who has?
    Yes!

    When you read what they are saying, they are just narrowing the scope and better identifying variables. Prior anyone who was presymptomatic (developed symptoms later) as well as those with very mild symptoms they thought nothing of were all lumped, wrongly, in the asymptomatic category.

    It is a great example of why one should not panic or make rash decisions, such as lock downs, when the data set is so new and lacking. But it is not a change in tune. They are still saying the same thing in this instance, just a bit more accurately.

    Look at something less controversial. As one of my tshirts say "When I was a Kid Pluto Was a Planet" The Science of the day said that was the case, Pluto was a planet and the edge of the solar system. Then new evidence came to light and Pluto was reclassified not as a planet but as a dwarf planet. They also pushed the solar system boundary out past Pluto. You can't blame people back then for saying what we know now to be false today because they lacked the evidence we have today. That is science, it changes with the evidence.

    Basing public policy on science should be done at best judiciously, if at all. I would argue by rushing to make policy decisions based on such an extraordinary lack of evidence people were not basing their actions in science but rather fear. Thats what we have, a collective fear of one group using government, as well as social pressures, to strong arm those they disagree with into taking the actions they want. All in an effort to ease their personal fear at the expense of others.

    This is not a story on a collective media narrative, or some bond villain esk plot hatched in some cigar smoke filled room with some mastermind with a hairless cat in his lap. It is simply what happens when the public and politicians try and use science while at the same time having a lack of understanding as to how science works. Science changes.

    I am no pro cornavirus type at all. I never supported the lockdowns, still don't. But I can't fault the pro cronavirus types in this instance.

    So it has been seeded. Political germ warfare. Tinfoil hat or not it worked. Chinese flu has over 30 mutations. Only the lab made stuff will kill you. Much like anthrax. Natural found anthrax is no joke but needs to be weaponize for good use.

    Science has become the bastard child of the Left in proposing radical change to government, society and civilization much the way journalism has. In this instance they both conspired, some wittingly and some ignorant, to bring down the world economy in order to level the field for Communist China and provide an avenue for them to leap frog the rest of the world. There was also a revenge aspect after being forced to accept the USA lead trade agreement to the detriment of both their economy and their pride.

    If one doubts the perversion of "science" just examine the AGW movement which is considered "settled" science in their discipline, the media and the educational system.
