If facts matter, a better way to phrase this would be, are we sacrificing freedom and the economy for COVID-19 mitigation, even though the virus is less lethal than many other causes of death and the mitigation measures have not been proven to work?
The predictions and remedies by the medical bureaucracy, politicians, and media have been wrong. The disease is not highly lethal. Moreover, there is no proof that locking people up, facemasks, thermometers, gloves, social distancing, or respirators have decreased mortality.
Nevertheless, as the disease naturally declines, there will be a lot of voice and ink excusing their misinformation. Their top defense will be to say the measures taken were responsible for the decline. In effect, that's like saying they would be responsible for dropping the level of the ocean by dipping water out of it when the tide is receding.
The following further throws into question the reaction to the virus. (See my other recent posts on the subject for resources, facts, data, and remedies. All numbers are as of the date of the article post.)
>A Swedish doctor who has led Sweden's and world infectious disease control programs, says the virus should be treated no differently than we have treated the seasonal flu. The disease will run its natural course with no difference in mortality no matter what social, political, or medical actions we take. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfN2JWifLCY

>If you have had the seasonal flu, this can result in a false positive on the COVID-19 test. All present and prospective tests have similar fallibilities. The only reason to mandate such testing is to justify who will or will not be locked up or be forced to be vaccinated. There is no proof that any test, no matter how many people are tested, will decrease deaths. High tech medicine gives the illusion of remedy whether or not it actually does more good than harm.
>The media continues to highlight the horrific and tragic effects of COVID-19. Severe respiratory symptoms, lung damage, and even heart, vascular, and liver damage can occur. Cases are detailed and combined with personal stories and daily death tallies and images in a porn of fear. But it affects almost exclusively the elderly and already ill. At the same time, there is silence about the seasonal flu viruses. They too attack the lungs and other organs. So far, the flu has similar mortality to COVID-19. But it is even more tragic in that its primary target is young children who have their entire lives removed from them. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-do-people-die-from-the-flu/ Imagine if the media covered these tragic deaths and the reactions of parents. A person would have to be a stone to not be crushed by the tragedies. For that matter, imagine if those dying from even bigger killers like cancer, heart disease, and medical injury were featured on the news and sensationalized with up close and personal stories. The pain, disfigurement, disease, and death from medical interventions, by the same logic as used with COVID-19, would be cause to bar the doors of all hospitals and doctor's offices. Using emotion, all of society would have long ago been shut down. Those of us who could survive such collapse of the modern world (as in the works now) would be back in the stone age wondering where our next bite of food could come from.
>In a previous post, it was shown that the increase in death rate for COVID-19 paralleled the decrease in deaths reported for pneumonia. This demonstrated that pneumonia was being relabeled as COVID-19. https://www.asifthinkingmatters.com/blog/facts-that-contradict-the-prevailing-covid-19-narrative The same thing has been done in previous years with the flu. Such cooking of the books has risen to a new level with the new UO7.1 CDC category officially encouraging death from other causes to be attributed to COVID-19. On top of that, there is a financial incentive from the government for doctors and hospitals to do this. Inflating mortality figures serves only to drive fear and public compliance with mandates that are not proven to decrease deaths.
>A recent antibody study found that the number of infected people has been underestimated. Those infected are 50-85 times greater than previously claimed. That would increase the size of the denominator in mortality calculations and mean actual mortality is as little as 0.06% --far less than the 5% and greater than the media, politicians, and medical bureaucrats would have us believe and far less than countless other threats we face daily. (The calculation: Current US deaths, including all those falsely attributed to COVID-19, is 35,578. There are 686,431 recorded cases. That yields a mortality of 5.2%. According to this study, that is up to 85-fold too high. The real mortality would be 0.06%.)
>An estimated 90% of those put on ventilators die. The trauma of intubation, the cocktail of drugs used, and forcing air into the lung's alveoli filling with fluid and under an inflammatory cytokine storm is risky and can itself cause death. https://www.cantonrep.com/zz/news/20200409/bridge-between-life-and-death-most-covid-19-patients-put-on-ventilators-will-not-survive
>Lockup consequences will cause far more deaths and human misery than the virus. The Lancet medical journal and the National Bureau of Economic Research, for example, report that for each 1% increase in unemployment there will be a 3.3% increase in drug overdose deaths and about a 1% increase in suicides. Given that unemployment is now at 22 million and rising, these deaths will far exceed deaths that are actually due to the virus. Isolation and ruined lives will cause depression and stress to skyrocket. These mental effects will translate into compromised immunity and increased vulnerability to all diseases.
>Dr. Zelenko in New York City has seen 1,450 patients with the virus. Those under 60 with few symptoms are sent home with supportive advice. He treats those over 60 with co-morbidities or with severe symptoms (405 out of the 1,450) using hydroxychloroquine (anti-viral), azithromycin (antibiotic), and Zinc sulfate (hydroxychloroquine is a zinc ionophore helping move anti-viral zinc into the cell). Normally 5-10% of patients without this protocol will die with pulmonary catastrophic complications. That would mean as many as 40 deaths. But only two of his patients on this protocol have died. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3J_1B7kJbk
> Given that the virus particularly likes those who are health compromised and medicated, if we want to be scared, we should be scared of not taking responsibility for our own health and caring for our immunity. Proactive antiviral and immune-stimulating things you can do in addition to those previously discussed (like vitamins C, D, and A) include zinc, quercetin, n-acetyl cysteine vitamin B1, selenium, black seed oil, melatonin, nebulized hydrogen peroxide, and ozone therapy. More suggestions here: https://www.asifthinkingmatters.com/blog/facts-that-provide-perspective-and-hope-in-the-face-of-covid-19 Research all such recommendations and consult with a holistic physician before embarking on any health strategy beyond just obvious healthy living.
>It now appears that the virus was engineered in a lab in Wuhan China. Reportedly, the research was funded in part by the US under the auspices of Dr. Fauci. The goal was to create a virus chimera with the added function of increased infectivity. Such research was prohibited in the US. (Search Dr. Mikovits on YouTube for details.) Now, Dr. Fauci says there is no solution to the virus until the entire world is vaccinated against it. If we follow the rule of following the money, it appears we are being set up for a vaccine mandate and possibly implanted radio-frequency chips. Research these organizations for information on the inherent dangers of this approach. https://www.nvic.org/; https://www.icandecide.org/; https://childrenshealthdefense.org/
>Such a nefarious origin combined with draconian government actions leads people to suspect that there is something more going on than just a virus. It's evident that some politicians, either out of reveling in the power they can exert, political ambition, or ignorance, are oblivious to the devastation their orders create. In my State (MI) many stores have been closed unnecessarily, a motor boat can't be used, and you can't visit a cottage. Buying lottery tickets that fund government is fine though. There are many more examples of such nonsense here and elsewhere (click the images and read the emails): https://twitter.com/AlexBerenson/status/1252207250376097793
This is a man-made catastrophe using a virus as an excuse for it. Its net effect is to print trillions of (eventually worthless) dollars to "save" everyone and make them dependent on government. As proof, note that most of the trillions being printed are about the wish lists of politicians, not citizens who are wondering if they will ever be free again or be able to feed their families.
If the virus and the circumstances surrounding it teach us anything, it should be distrust of the powers that be, the experts, and their sycophantic media mouthpieces.
America, as we once knew it and hoped to pass to our kids and grandkids, is being vaporized before our very eyes. For example, unemployment in the US may increase to over 30% in the second quarter of 2020, according to the Federal Reserve. We are presently at 22% and rising. The depression of the 1930s reached 25% unemployment leading to price controls, rationing, bread lines, and soup kitchens.
Our depression will be man-made, hysteria generated, and completely unnecessary. And we are complicit. Parents, when asked why the Greater Depression of 2020 occurred can say, "Well, the news got us scared about a virus that killed fewer people than many other diseases we tolerated, so we let the government lock us in our homes, tell us to snitch on neighbors, and shut down our economy."
A return to freedom will not come by waiting for others to give it to us. Most good things that have ever come to the masses were the result of those masses standing up. Independence, slavery, segregation, discrimination, women's rights, fair labor, Viet Nam . . . and other issues were not resolved by those in power without pressure from the people. To exert effective pressure requires being informed. Since many media platforms now censor information such as this, that will take some doing. But if truth and freedom is the goal, it is our only hope.
