What I just can't figure out is that a lot of people have done a complete 180 intellectually.
What I mean by that is that a lot of people I know personally who would never wear a mask, never get the COVID vaccine, and who insist I should not "live in fear" were the same people who were freaked out about catching HIV from a mosquito bite or who would never "take any chances" with a generally minor infection like giardia.
I have been able to disprove theories about other viruses that have had a profound effect on human behavior, and this is the point of view that has formed my current views on Covid. I believe that to separate viruses according to the alledged abilities that they have to infect in different ways is really misleading. A so-called virus is not really alive. It has no central nervous system. A virus has never been seen to move. It does not have the ability to plan an attack. When I have taken more of a big picture look, and what other factors contribute to disease I find myself aligned with terrain theory. Take the analogy of a dolphin or a goldfish that has developed a sickness. What is the first thing you are going to think about as being the cause? You are not going to conclude that the problem is a virus or a bacteria. The first thing you would do is consider the environment. You would consider changing the water if it is the goldfish, not giving a medicine to the goldfish.
I do believe that Wuhan,China being a highly polluted city, and obviously a challenging environment to the respiratory system is an important factor to consider when we observed that the incidence of respiratory diseases decreased markedly during their extreme shutdown in which the air was cleared long enough to affect their health, and in fact according to my interpretation of the graph, it seems clear that China as a nation actually had less mortality in 2020 and 2021 than what was expected compared to previous years. That is quite remarkable, and can only be explained by lowered pollution levels in Wuhan which was ground zero.
I believe you can blame Fauci for fear mongering an unreal fear about HIV transmission. Fear mongering over unproven transmission through sexual contact was bad, but Fauci expanded the fear on the american public when he said that it was likely that HIV could be transmitted through means other than sexual contact. This was broadcast to the US, although as far as I'm concerned his motivation was really as a bureaucrat to get the attention of as many people across the demographic, and then the funding follows, but his statements were not guided by proper studies. I was not personally fear mongered by these events in the '80's, but I did have a girlfriend around 1992 who's brother died from AIDS. I knew him well enough to know that he was fear mongered to believe the only answer was drugs, and he suffered unnecessarily.
As far as believing that you can get a virus from a mosquito bite, I challenge you to look into the supposed Zika virus in Brazil that affected the 2016 Olympics to the point that some athletes were fearful, and backed out. The symptomology had nothing to do with a mosquito. Once again, the establishment puts the blame on another species. I have discovered that the real reason for encephalitis in newborn babies in Brazil around that time was due to the fact that the previous year the government had required pregnant women to get a vaxx, and this was the reason for the birth defects, not a mosquito. It makes me wonder about other so-called viruses that are blamed on swine, birds, etc.. I would check out what Forrest Maready has to say about these things.
I just watched this video featuring Dr. Robert Young who has a very interesting insight. I was not familiar with him until today, and I enjoyed what he had to say...
