I have not listened to this one yet but I thought I would mention it.
There are other platforms to listen as well.
Another one bites the dust 🙁
I am also wondering if regular zinc, quercetin or NAC might help?
I work in a small private health sciences college in the Midwest US. In their planning guidelines for fall, they included this …
Masks will be encouraged but not required this fall for the entire campus. Departments/employees will not be allowed to differentiate mask-wearing requirements.
Cannot differentiate vaccinated/not vaccinated due to legal issues with
Of course that could change if any laws/guidelines change but for now I am relieved. I know in the University Hospital System we are associated with, employees and health care workers need to wear a sticker indicating whether they are vaccinated or not which just doesn’t sit right with me.
Thank you for posting this!!!! It was very much worth the watch
I think Bret Weinstein also mentioned this one – the Solomon Asch Conformity Experiment – on the Dark Horse podcast recently. In a nutshell:
Solomon Asch conducted an experiment to investigate the extent to which social pressure from a majority group could affect a person to conform.
Asch (1951) devised what is now regarded as a classic experiment in social psychology, whereby there was an obvious answer to a line judgment task.
If the participant gave an incorrect answer it would be clear that this was due to group pressure.
Asch used a lab experiment to study conformity, whereby 50 male students from Swarthmore College in the USA participated in a ‘vision test.’
Using a line judgment task, Asch put a naïve participant in a room with seven confederates/stooges. The confederates had agreed in advance what their responses would be when presented with the line task.
The real participant did not know this and was led to believe that the other seven confederates/stooges were also real participants like themselves.
Each person in the room had to state aloud which comparison line (A, B or C) was most like the target line. The answer was always obvious. The real participant sat at the end of the row and gave his or her answer last.
There were 18 trials in total, and the confederates gave the wrong answer on 12 trails (called the critical trials). Asch was interested to see if the real participant would conform to the majority view.
Asch’s experiment also had a control condition where there were no confederates, only a “real participant.”
Asch measured the number of times each participant conformed to the majority view. On average, about one third (32%) of the participants who were placed in this situation went along and conformed with the clearly incorrect majority on the critical trials.
Over the 12 critical trials, about 75% of participants conformed at least once, and 25% of participants never conformed.
In the control group, with no pressure to conform to confederates, less than 1% of participants gave the wrong answer.

I’m sure that social media and MSM enhances this response. It’s sad, most people don’t want to go against the grain. I believe Weinstein also talked about what he called something like “the Good Person” syndrome. When the messaging is that you’re a good person because you are doing your part to help others, society at large, etc., people want to be part of the good person group and thus conform.
In the FLCCC weekly zoom meetings there is always a Dr. Alan Vinitsky M.D. from Rockland, MD leaving messages in the chat that he prescribes Ivermectin and to call for consultation if interested. Otherwise the FLCCC has a list on their website.
I was at the store today and noticed the section with feminine hygiene products was looking a bit skimpy. On the other hand, there was tons of hand sanitizer…
You can just feel Dr. Kory’s frustration here. Posting for people who maybe haven’t seen it yet.
Per your article :
A review on NAC literature shows that this
agent is a safe and well-tolerated supplementary
drug without any considerable side effects.
Well, obviously this must go then!!
So frustrating. SMH
