Just a reminder: Airline CEOs and unions sent a letter to Biden a month ago asking for the removal of the mandates. Extending the mandates makes ZERO scientific sense, but we all know, they were never about real science.
My wife and I are currently watching the series Dopesick on Hulu. It talks about the spread of opioid abuse, centered around the drug Oxycontin. Its use exploded around the world largely due to the fact doctors were sold with the promise that less than 1% became addicted, even with long-term prescribed use at ever-increasing dosages. The 1% claim was based on the Porter Jick Study from the New England Journal of Medicine. The study was later repeatedly cited in secondary studies and taught in every medical school in the country. The FDA stamped their approval largely based on this study. After it became clear reality was not matching promises, the Attorney General’s office tried to track down the study. Despite its prevalence, no one could find it on the web. After weeks of investigation, they finally found the so-called “research study.” It was actually a letter to the magazine only a few lines long. A scientist had observed only 1% of a small group of hospitalized patients had become addicted in a highly-controlled environment. Obviously, this was nowhere near the real world where dosages varied, where prescriptions were given for every kind of pain including headaches, where pills could be shared or stolen, and where drug users could snort or inject the medication (unlike it’s intended time-release design).
The reason I mention this in regards to mask mandates is that it’s easy to cherry pick any research that gives you the result you want. The CDC says masks protect us from Covid based on a couple tiny studies in highly controlled environments that can’t possibly simulate all the conditions of the real world. Have you or anyone you know examined these CDC studies? Can you even find them? Has any politician or “journalist” dug up the original research? What does your common sense tell you about real world use of masks? Has it lived up to ANY of the promises of the so-called research? This is why critical thinking skills are so important nowadays, and why the Ruling Class fights so hard to keep the population from developing them.
One more note on Oxycontin: The FDA gave its “safety” approval for long term use of the drug at high doses, meaning in today’s Big Tech censorship world, you could be banned or fact-checked if you tried to share stories of abuse, overdosing, or death. The mainstream media would be ridiculing such people as nuts spreading “misinformation” on the web. Now imagine the government mandated use of the drug for any patient suffering pain, with no-liability legal protection for the pharma companies. Now imagine that any doctors who recommended natural alternative remedies (such as physical therapy, meditation, or anti-inflammatory diets) could lose their medical license. Say the words: TRUST THE SCIENCE! If the government says it’s true, then it must be true!
