Dear Alt-Media, Please Come Back to the Light Side. Here Are Some Resources That May Help You

From brilliant doctors who know this stuff far better than Anti-Empire

What are the fearless question-askers? We miss them

Editor’s note: First ran on April 1.

Not naming any names, but one of the most disappointing aspects of the controlavirus hype has been the way huge parts of the alt-media have drifted to the dark side, either boosting the hysteria and joining in the calls for lockdowns, or just bowing before it and giving comfort to some aspects of the fear shock & awe.

Look we get it, this is new and outside the topics we usually tread, and we all want people to live. But what if these measures are going to kill more people than they save? What if the lethality of SARS-CoV-2 is so low that if we went into lockdown for every such virus we’d have to live in lockdown forever?

Consider these arguments made by highly-esteemed experts in the field from the US, UK, Germany, Japan and France:

Dr. John P.A. Ioannidis (US) — Chances Are War on Corona Is a Fiasco in the Making. Politicians Are Rushing to Drastic Measures Without Reliable Data

Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg (Germany) — How Dr. Wolfgang Wodarg Sees the Current Corona Pandemic

Italy National Health Institute — 99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says. 50% Had 3 or More

Dr. David L. Katz (US) — 99 Percent of COVID-19 Bug Cases Do Not Require Medical Treatment Data From South Korea Shows

Dr. Karin Mölling (Germany) — German Virologist of International Renown Warns Government Lockdowns Are a Horrible Mistake, Will Make Crisis Worse

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi (Germany) — Fantastic Video Interview, German Infectologist: Gov’t Lockdowns Are “Collective Suicide”, Will Shorten the Lives of Millions

Dr. Eran Bendavid and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya (US) — Stanford Professors for WSJ: Covid-19 Fatality Rate Estimates Too High by Orders of Magnitude

Dr. Gerd Bosbach (Germany) — Renowned German Mathematician and Professor of Statistics Slams Dramatization of Covid-19

Dr. Sunetra Gupta (UK) — Oxford Study: Half of UK Population May Already Have Been Infected With SARS-CoV-2 and Didn’t Feel a Thing

Dr. John Lee (UK) — A Fantastic Recap of Everything That Is Wrong With the Hysterical Corona Spin by One Hell of a Scientist

Dr. Kenji Mizumoto (Japan) — Japanese Study Estimates Covid Mortality Rate in Wuhan Was Just 0.12%

Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi (Germany)— German Infectologist Decimates COVID Doomsday Cult in Open Letter to Merkel

Dr. Yanis Roussel and others (France) — ‘Fear Could Have a Larger Impact Than the Virus Itself’: Study Funded by French Govt Says COVID-19 Is Nothing Special

Dr. John Lee (UK) — How to Understand — and Report — Figures for ‘Covid Deaths’

Dr. John Ioannidis (USA) — Perspectives on the Pandemic

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya (USA) — ‘Fauci Can’t Possibly Know Covid-19 Is 10x Deadlier Than Flu’ — Dr. Bhattacharya of Stanford in Superb Video Interview

Dr. Knut Wittkowski (Germany, USA) — ‘Without Lockdowns the Covid-19 Epidemic Would Have Been Over by Now’

Dr. Ted Noel (USA) — ‘The Statistics Are Just Plain Lies’: Dr. Ted Noel Torches Fabricated COVID Death Tally

Dr. Scott Jensen (USA) — Minnesota State Senator & Physician Blows Whistle on Inflated Covid Death Tally: ‘Fear Is a Great Way to Control People’

Dr. Carl  Heneghan and Dr. Tom Jefferson —The Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine: “The Age Affected Structure Doesn’t Fit With Pandemic Theory”

and last but not least:

Dr. Andrew Fauci — America’s Corona Tsar, Andrew Fauci, Concedes Covid-19 May Be Just a Bad Flu With a Fatality Rate of 0.1%

As the ex-UK Supreme Court Justice Jonathan Sumption, put it the other day:

“It is the right and duty of every citizen to look and see what the scientists have said and to analyse it for themselves and to draw common-sense conclusions. We are all perfectly capable of doing that…”

Hey, here at Anti-Empire we didn’t know what the deal with this virus is at first either — how could we, it’s not like virology is our area. Perhaps we were just lucky that we stumbled into these sharp minds sooner than you did. But once we did and we judged what they were saying against what people from the field the governments were talking to were saying it was clear to us the dissenting skeptics spoke a lot more sense.

So dear alt-media, please look into it and make up your own mind. We miss you, and we know you’re far smarter than that. Looking forward to welcoming you back to the light side, welcome at any time, the key is under the doormat, unlock the entrance for yourself.

We end with a shout-out to brothers in arms already in the fight: Off Guardian, Ron Paul Institute, LewRockwell.com, Activist Post, TheBlogMire, Peter Hitchens, Rubikon, Swiss Propaganda Research, Global Research, Corbett Report, Consent Factory21st Century Wire, Land Destroyer and others.

Even the alt media is comprised of people amenable to bring terrified out of their wits and responding accordingly. Also even the alt media has to cater to a readership and the readership often doesn’t like it if their pet convictions are challenged.

This is a good list but you should have added Dr. Wodarg. I get that he makes a scientific argument, which needs people to think. But if your whole POV is backed by science (it is), this is a must listen.

And Professor Didier Raoult who says there’s no requirement even for a vaccine. Let alone an unsafe, untested one imposed by decree on everybody.

cool guys, cool – too much hysteria on both sides are not going to be helpful – giving up a month or 2 of “freedom” is not going to kill or zombify anyone but not doing it may just kill some [Italy National Health Institute — 99% of Those Who Died From Virus Had Other Illness, Italy Says. 50% Had 3 or More] – just as bad whether they are parts of our family or not … all things have 2 sides and i personally am using this opportunity to self-isolate and help me take a look at my life from a different angle, its quite eye-opening really … no am not trying to push anything but with the MSM and alt-media now all up in arms and zillions voices coming from every corner, IMHO best to do is to remain calm and get on with life – all will be just fine very soon and one day we may look back and be amused with what a fine mess this C19 has made …

I think your missing the point. I have no issue with isolation, my question is : What happens after this isolation ??? More to the point : How long are we going to be isolated for ???????????

no am not missing the point – my point is whatever is happening now in terms of isolation, hysteria is not going to help as many ppl said, if C19 doesnt get you, the panic does – so lets not let that happen … about your question [How long are we going to be isolated for ???????????] – i dont think anyone knows the answer definitely, not even the medical community has an answer to that and with that, theres even more reason for us to keep calm, stay alert and stay safe instead of pulling out our hairs …

It has actually already killed many people, and will kill more (I’ll bet many more than the Covfefevirus will), but do you really imagine these controls will ever be wholly relaxed or won’t be used as a precedent in future?

the arguments here is premised almost entirely on a few interviews or personal opinions that the movement control is bad and may be used to take away the freedom of the ppl – now that surely has caused helluva fear, anxiety and consternation among the freedom-sensitive … the arguments are a bit silly thats the number of quoted arguments against is so insignificant compares to those advising for it …

C19 is killing about 5% of the 1+ million confirmed cases now and thats a significant mortality rate – do you think this is just a hoax that so many different countries are colluding to impose more control on the ppl ??? frankly theres really no point freaking ourselves out based on some presumption or mind-reading speculation …

[do you really imagine these controls will ever be wholly relaxed or won’t be used as a precedent in future?] – no i dont know and perhaps no one knows except those who are imposing it … do you ??? with this precedent and if theres another pandemic in future do you think the authorities should resort to such measure to save lives ???

theres no perfect answer to something like a pandemic or other disaster and definitely someone/something gonna get hurt – if we fail to maintain our calm and sanity, yes the panic will kill us first b4 the pandemic or whatnot …

It’s not killing 5%. It’s *possibly* killing 5%, at most, of the small number of COVID-19 infected people who develop severe enough symptoms to seek medical advice, are then detected as being COVID-19 positive, and are tabulated. If you remove the number who are already ill from other diseases, the mortality rate falls to a fraction of a percent.

It’s a difficult balance – everyone is dealing with at least a known unknown, and it’s better to be on the safe side. The economies were shut down in a frantic way though, much too draconian. Personally this looked like a pensioner killer from the start, so really they should have locked up the 60+ in their homes and let everyone else work. See how that worked, and then maybe do more.

The mouse has again defeated the elephant!

Err on the safe side but in relation to which threat? There is nothing safe about what we’re doing right now. Economic ruination will lead to excess deaths as surely as a virus will.

In fact these policies only make sense in that they serve to aleviate the fears and anxieties felt by the public even as they increase the actual dangers the public finds itself.

On the safe side would have been to quarantine all the retired population from the start imo, as China’s data was showing they were the ones at high risk. The Chinese did right to lock down though, as they were the first and really were in the dark.

But I agree that may not even be necessary if a representative sample of the population were tested quickly, even now.

The risk reward is different for the ruling class and the prols though. Seeming indifference to the herd’s health would turn the herd even with a small numbers of deaths. But an overreaction would be mostly accepted by the herd, it’s just how the herd reacts!

The former risks the politicians’ face, the latter risks the people what’s left of their economy. Western leaders chose as expected.

But I think it’s just more sinister, as others point out. Blame the pandemic for the collapse of the economy – after all, the US was showing great ‘figures’ before this storm, there’s enough there to spin a decent chunk of the people into belief!

BTW I don’t think there is much damage to shutting down everything but food, medicine, and energy production in case of a truly serious virus.. in the end the economy is made up of people – and whilst capital does depreciate slowly – if they are fed and kept healthy, so running food, health, and energy, is a 15-25% of GDP thing.. That’s $3-5tn per year for the US, or ~$1tn for a lock down for three months. Pain, but not the end of the world.

We don’t get a new unknown virus, to which there is no immunity in the population appearing every year. If you don’t know what it is, and how dangerous it is, better be on the safe side.

Next year we will have some immunity to this and possibly vaccines, so no, not for this thing.

No one talking about why economic ruination has been chosen. Pensioner killer, reducing elderly population is another thing entirely. I passed the undertaker who was in his garden, lives up the road and said how many have you buried. He said 4. Dozens were reported in the press. COVID19 may be something but its also a con. The same lock step world wide is another giveaway.
