Beautiful rendition of a COVID-19 protest song.
“Public health has not been serving us well for the past 40 or 50 years. What I think is really extraordinary about Frank's story is he really details how science has gone wrong. We like to think of science as this democracy of experts: top people in their field discussing how the science should move forward. But public health is not like that.
Starting in the 1970s with Nixon's war on cancer, which accelerated under Reagan, these ‘czars’ of science were created. Tony Fauci is one of them. And then they demoted the other scientists to be like serfs. We don't really have that many ‘government scientists.’ We have a lot of scientists under contract with the federal government, and this has really set up a system where people like Tony Fauci essentially control public health.
I think if people understood that the system itself is set up so that relatively few people are in charge, then all of this makes more sense. So, when they talk about in the media ‘science is deciding this,’ ‘science is deciding that,’ it's really not.
It's just a relatively small handful of people, almost like a holy bureau of science, and that's what we're attacking. What we're trying to do is, we're trying to move science back to its original roots in which everybody who is qualified has a voice and can contribute to the discussion.”

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stayed true to form by deciding that its current mask guidance – not to be confused with its previous and repeatedly revised guidance – needs to be reversed. Again.
It’s a shame so many Americans do not appreciate the new rules concerning the use of face coverings among the fully vaccinated. After all, asking jabbed citizens to mask up after telling them they don’t need to mask up, after suggesting to them that wearing two masks almost all the time would be even better, must be the best possible and most consistent public health policy under the current circumstances.
Enough, already: The historical record is self-explanatory. The CDC, together with America’s trusted public-health bureaucrats, have always pursued evidence-based policymaking and have never once bowed to mass panic. The below timeline should finally put to rest all the feeble-minded moaning leveled against US health authorities during these trying times.
The stunning breakthrough technologies covered in THRIVE II: This Is What It Takes have all shown promise, but the innovators behind many still need support to bring their inventions to fruition.
Unique obstacles exist for innovations which fundamentally disrupt the global centralization of power. A look at the history of such inventions reveals that they are frequently suppressed, sabotaged, and marginalized by those who control the industries they challenge. The despots in control of trillion-dollar industries often resort to unethical means of maintaining their power and control over the markets and people. Thankfully, breakthrough technologies are sprouting up across the globe and the internet has made it possible for independent media organizations like ours to spread the word.
