    What is it that makes us trust certain groups and individuals more than others?

 

I’ve been thinking, what is it about AFLDS, FLCCC that makes me trust them? As opposed to, say, Fauci, or the CDC?

After much thought, I came up with this: the first 2 groups HAVEN’T BEEN CAUGHT LYING TO US 487,000 TIMES!

I worked in healthcare for 35 years (surgical technologist), and one thing I learned was “seeing is believing”.   Management would tell us how things were supposed to be, but in the operating rooms, there was a different reality.

The government bureaucrats managing this plague haven’t actually treated a patient in decades.  Big Pharma is hopelessly entwined with all the desk doctors, & have contaminated their thought processes.

I often wonder if deep down in their hearts, they know we should be trying to treat these patients; or if they truly believe it is proper to let millions die while they do their poorly conceived RCTs.

No excuse for forbidding doctors in the field from taking action.  This has been more distressing than my divorce!  What the heck are these guys thinking?

Fauci constantly says “When you look at the data…” and then gives an opinon with no supporting data.  He has repeatedly ignored open letters posing valid questions.

I trust people who make the best argument for opposing view and then refute it.

I evolved from a very conventional medicine stance to embracing a number of altmed protocols, particularly energy related.  Stuff that TPTB like to call woo.  My focus was concern for my elderly, failing cat.  I would hear testimonials that I was not prepared to accept.  But then I would hear the same testimonials from others.  And over time from people I otherwise trusted.  It was enough to make some leaps and then experience for myself that they were accurate (seeing can be believing…).  But hearing from just one person would not have been enough.  No idea how some of it works, just that it can with the right practitioner.  It isn’t placebo effect when it works on your pet.

True, we’ve all seen the lies and distortions of truth by Fauci and others. With the FLCCC guys, I keep asking myself – “What is their motivation for claiming ivermectin works? What will they gain by promoting it?” So far, I haven’t come up with a reasonable explanation of how they can profit from promoting treatments that may not work. Money? There’s no money to be made in ivermectin. Fame? They are already well known, highly published, have had long careers. Their motives seem anything but selfish to me.

Now, I could be wrong, maybe they are having $ funneled to them through some strange channels, from anti-vax groups or something. But it would have to be a lot of $ to risk their reputations…doesn’t seem likely.

Pfred said,

This is the essence of the dialogue that underlies science.  This is how science works.  Censoring, shutting down debate, and the digital book burnings we have witnessed, are antithetical to the workings of science.

Many of the statements coming out of the PharmaFascist State run media are easily faslifiable.  The question is;  Does it matter?

I suggest that we all have a built-in BS detector, and that part knows when somebody is lying to us. The problem is that we often don’t listen to that BS detector, because we think (more precisely, we have been trained to think) it’s unreliable, or that we will suffer some serious disadvantage if we do. We need to support people in making decisions with their intuitive knowing.
