At the moment of this posting . . . 4,726 Medical & Public Health Scientists and 8,838 Medical Practitioners — coming from both the left and right of the political spectrum, and from around the world — have signed The Great Barrington Declaration open petition calling for world leaders to end coronavirus lockdowns.
“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice. Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”
In other words: “The cure has been, and will be, worse than the disease.”
I know many of your friends, family, and work associates are not getting this information from their own, most trusted news sources, but there is a large and growing movement of medical professionals and scientists — worldwide — who are trying to get their voices heard above the mainstream media’s coordinated, lockstep campaign to keep the world cowering in fear from COVID-19. We ALL need to calmly and sincerely implore — indeed, appeal to the “open mindedness” of the people we know and love — to at least take five minutes to peek their heads out from behind their emotional and ideological blackout curtains. Just long enough to look at the opinions of healthcare professionals they are not being exposed to from the likes of NPR, CNN, The New York Times, et al.
Our governors have their own medical experts at their side. The MSM outlets parade their own in front of the cameras. Then, of course, there’s Fauci. But what about the thousands of epidemiologists, medical statisticians, and scientists — from every corner of the world, prestigious universities, medical centers, and research groups — who are being blacklisted by major media and social media? The founders, principal signatories of The Great Barrington Declaration — and their credentials — can be found on the home page of their website, here:
There are simply better ways of dealing with this crisis, with far less impactful or deadly longterm effects, than the methods which have been imposed by our governments for the last seven months. When they say they are only “following the science and the data” in their lockdown orders . . . that is not entirely true. They are actually only looking at the short term political implications of the mass media-generated fear, while totally ignoring the greater damage they are doing to all of us in the longterm: by real, scientific measures of physical health, mental health, and economic health.
Maybe . . . just maybe . . . you yourself have not heard the whole truth about COVID-19? Ask yourself just one question: “Why are thousands upon thousands of scientists’ and medical professionals’ voices being blacked-out or canceled by mainstream media and social media platforms during this crisis?”
Doesn’t that make you the least bit curious? Remember when we use to be told, “question everything?” Especially what our governments tell us?
We’ve faced and currently face far greater health challenges than imposed by this particular coronavirus, yet have never done so much self-inflicted longterm damage in the process. It’s past time to begin questioning everything.
Please share this widely. Take the time and make the effort to talk to your friends and loved ones. Do it now. Already, governments are announcing new lockdowns and extended closures. Some “experts” are even saying this “new normal” will be permanent. While there’s nothing normal about it, there are experts of equal and greater credibility sounding the alarm that these draconian cures are not only unnecessary, but are going to be far more devastating than COVID-19, itself.
By ALL MEANS, protect those who are most at-risk. For the rest of us, we MUST pushback, unmask, and demand our governments allow us to reopen and return to normal. Our future, our livelihoods, our very lives, and liberty itself is now utterly hanging in the balance.
