Glad to hear people are happy with Peakprosperity.com. I’ve actually recommended it to a few people.
I’m admittedly new here and was referring the coverage I’ve seen concerning Covid-19.
Evidence. First off, I find it self-evident that the worse the “crisis” is seen to be, the better for hits and revenue on websites and YT channels like this one. Therefore, it’s only self-interest for Chris and Adam to present a biased view of the reality of the situation. Not so much that they lose viewers, but enough that they keep people afraid. That’s where the money is: profiting from people’s fears.
For example, the constant denigration of those who say “it’s only the flu”. There are many good reasons why some people make this argument. SARS-CoV-19 is a coronavirus similar to flu virii and that of the common cold. The critical numbers about it are still coming out. In fact, it now seems the virus is much less an unstoppable “honey badger” than believed just a few days ago. Many have predicted this. Many have pointed it out. But every PP video I’ve seen both promoted the lethality of HB-19 and dismissed with prejudice the views of those who make the comparisons to a flu.
Another example is the routine dismissal of the small numbers coming out of China. Chris says he has evidence that they do not reflect the truth. Well, please share that evidence. I also suspect their veracity but cannot dismiss them so blithely. Maybe there are things we don’t know about what’s going on in China and with the disease itself.
My warning to readers/viewers is to follow the money. Keep in mind the financial interests of Adam & Chris. This “crisis” is a goldmine for operators like them – but only as long as it is seen as something really scary, and only as long as it lasts.
Two ad hominem attacks. Of course …
Is there a way for a user to BLOCK another user’s posts? If not, we need one. Too many people posting useless comments.
Also, I don’t see the “Alert Moderator” button mentioned above. Has that been removed?
