Alas, this video and the very account have been deleted. Wish I’d saved a copy.

In an epidemic, it’s important to have careful, accurate tracking and reporting on cases, recoveries, symptoms, and deaths. However…

I’m just going to leave this here! WTF? They finally admitted it.

But, circling back to the four-year-old’s complaint above… (now deleted, alas)

Amazing Polly:
Is This Torture?

In this video I start off slow but pick up steam as I submit the evidence and examples.
By comparing our situation to the study of torture & coercion on Prisoners of War, I believe it becomes clear that what we are being put through with the virus response is a near perfect parallel to the Amnesty International definition of torture & Bidermans ‘Chart of Coercion.’

Masques, and the Red Death

Censored: A Review Of Science Relevant To COVID-19 Social Policy And Why Face Masks Don’t Work

Masks and respirators do not work.

There have been extensive randomized controlled trial (RCT) studies, and meta-analysis reviews of RCT studies, which all show that masks and respirators do not work to prevent respiratory influenza-like illnesses, or respiratory illnesses believed to be transmitted by droplets and aerosol particles.

Furthermore, the relevant known physics and biology, which I review, are such that masks and respirators should not work. It would be a paradox if masks and respirators worked, given what we know about viral respiratory diseases: The main transmission path is long-residence-time aerosol particles (< 2.5 μm), which are too fine to be blocked, and the minimum-infective dose is smaller than one aerosol particle.…
