Maybe you feel like something fishy is going on? Same. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
- The coronavirus lived on surfaces until it didn’t.
- The masks weren’t working before they did, and then they didn’t.
- There is asymptomatic transmission, except that there is none.
- Locks work to control the virus, except they don’t.
- All of these people are sick with no symptoms until, oops, the PCR tests are extremely inaccurate because they were never intended to be diagnostic tools.
- Everyone is at risk from the virus except they are not.
- It is spreading in schools except that it is not.
And it’s okay. Daily. It’s no wonder that so many people have stopped believing everything “public health officials” say. In combination with the governors and other autocrats who made their offer, they set out to deny us our freedom and human rights and expected us to thank them for saving our lives. At some point this year (for me it was March 12), life started to feel like a dystopian novel of your own.
Well, now I have another piece of evidence to add to the Heap of Thousand Height Fish Mess. The World Health Organization, for reasons unknown, suddenly changed its definition of a fundamental conception of immunology: herd immunity. Its discovery was one of the major achievements of twentieth-century science, gradually emerging in the 1920s and becoming increasingly refined throughout the twentieth century.
Collective immunity is a fascinating observation that you can trace back to biological reality or statistical probability theory, whichever you prefer. (It’s certainly not a “strategy,” so ignore any media source that describes it that way.) Herd immunity speaks directly, and with explanatory power, to the empirical observation that respiratory viruses are either widespread and usually mild (common cold), or very severe and short-lived (Ebola).
Why is it? The reason is that when a virus kills its host, it cannot migrate. The more aggressively it does this, the less it spreads. If the virus does not kill its host, it can jump to others by any of the usual means. When you catch a virus and fight it off, your immune system encodes this information in a way that builds immunity against it. When enough people arrive (and each case is different so we cannot put a clear number), the virus loses its pandemic quality and becomes endemic, that is to say predictable and manageable. Each new generation incorporates this information through greater exposure.
This is what you would call Virology / Immunology 101. This is what you read in every textbook. He’s been taught grade 9 cell biology for probably 80 years. Watching the operations of this evolutionary phenomenon is quite wonderful as it increases respect for how human biology has adapted to the presence of pathogens without absolutely panicking.
And the discovery of this fascinating dynamic in cell biology is one of the main reasons public health has become so smart in the 20th century. We stayed calm. We have managed viruses with healthcare professionals: doctor / patient relationships. We avoided the medieval tendency to run with hair on fire but instead used rationality and intelligence. Even the New York Times recognizes that natural immunity is strong with Covid-19, which is not at all surprising.
Until one day when this strange institution called the World Health Organization – once glorious because it was primarily responsible for eradicating smallpox – suddenly decided to remove everything I just wrote from the basics of biology cellular. It literally changed science the Soviet way. He deleted any mention of natural immunities from his website with the delete key. He has taken a further step of poorly characterizing the structure and functioning of vaccines.
So that you believe me, I will try to be as specific as possible. This is the site for June 9, 2020. You can see it here on Archive.org. You have to go down the page and click on the question regarding collective immunity. You see the following.
It’s pretty darn accurate overall. Even the claim that the threshold is “not yet clear” is correct. There are cross-immunities against Covid against other coronaviruses and there is T cell memory which contributes to natural immunity.
Some estimates are as low as 10%, which is a far cry from the modeled estimate of 70% of viral immunity that is standard in the pharmaceutical industry. Real life is much more complicated than models, in economics or in epidemiology. The past WHO statement is a solid, albeit “pop” description.
However, in a screenshot dated November 13, 2020, we read the following memo which somehow claims as if humans have no immune system at all but instead rely entirely on the big pharmaceutical companies to inject drugs. things in our blood.
What this World Health Organization memo did is remove what amounts to a million-year history of humanity in its delicate dance with pathogens. You can only infer that we are all just blank, inimitable slates on which the pharmaceutical industry writes its signature.
Indeed, this change at the WHO ignores and even erases 100 years of medical advances in virology, immunology and epidemiology. This is utterly unscientific – shilling to the vaccine industry exactly as conspiracy theorists say the WHO has been doing since the start of this pandemic.
What is even stranger is the claim that a vaccine protects people from a virus rather than exposing them to it. What is amazing about this claim is that a vaccine works precisely by boosting the immune system through exposure. Why I had to type those words is really beyond me. This has been known for centuries. There is simply no way for medical science to completely replace the human immune system. He can only play it through what was once called inoculation.
Take whatever you want from that. It is a sign of the times. For almost a year, the media have told us that “science” demands that we conform to their diktats which go against all the principles of liberalism, all the expectations that we have developed in the modern world according to which we can live freely and with the certainty of rights. Then “science” took over and our human rights were criticized. And now “science” is erasing its own history, revisiting what it knew, and replacing it with something misleading at best and utterly wrong at worst.
I cannot say why, exactly, the WHO did this. Given the events of the past nine or ten months, however, it is reasonable to assume that politics are at stake. Since the start of the pandemic, those pushing for lockdown and hysteria around the coronavirus have resisted it. idea of the herd’s natural immunity, insisting instead that we have to live in lockdown until a vaccine is developed.
This is why the Great Barrington Declaration, written by three of the world’s foremost epidemiologists and which advocated embracing the phenomenon of herd immunity as a means of protecting vulnerable people and minimizing harm to society, was greeted with such venom. Now we see the WHO also succumbing to political pressure. This is the only rational explanation for the change in the definition of collective immunity that has existed for a century.
Science has not changed; only politics has. And that is precisely why it is so dangerous and deadly to subject virus management to political forces. Finally, science also bowed to the duplicity of political industry.
When the existing textbooks that students use at the university contradict the latest official statements by authorities during a crisis in which the ruling class is clearly trying to seize permanent power, we have a problem.
