Occasionally a copy of the Independent on Saturday is put in my postbox even though I am not a subscriber.
Your editorial today – “Your choice to mask or not,” is a sad reminder of the extent to which the mass media has sustained the false narratives concerning masks, vaccinations and the whole nonsense of the pandemic.
From the outset in March 2020, the dictate that masks were compulsory was the result of collusion between power-addicted politicians, always eager to impose controls over society and to inhibit freedom, and scientists beholden to the financial backing they depend upon from Big Pharma.
There is a very practical reason masks are ineffective in inhibiting the transmission of the Covid virus: apertures in the average weave of masks are between 70 and 80 microns. The size of the Covid virus is one micron. So wearing a mask is as ineffective as erecting a chain-link fence and expecting to keep the mosquitoes out.
The Great Barrington Declaration, endorsed by more than 60,000 scientists and medical practitioners, opposed masks, lockdowns and social distancing as counter-productive. The correctness of their stand was proved in Sweden and South Dakota which did not apply mask mandates and did not experience any spike in Covid affliction. The compilation of 400 independent studies by the Brownstone Institute in the US dismissed mask-wearing as futile.
Central to all aspects of the so-called Covid pandemic is that science has been falsely exploited by Big Pharma, the mass media and craven politicians, the latter two being controlled if not bought by Big money and Big Tech. The billions in profits made as a result of the Covid protocols and the vaccines were intentional, not coincidental.
It is a fact that the vaccines do not produce immunity; it is a fact that increasing numbers of deaths are directly caused by them and their crippling effects, from miscarriages to heart ailments. All that can be ascertained from media such as: World Net Daily, Epoch Times, and The Defender (Democrat Robert F Kennedy Jnr’s publication.]
So please, Zoubair, I respect you as a decent journalist, don’t be conned by false narratives.
