COVID Testing: Who wins? Who loses?
Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) is a solidly proven social control tool, and it's effective under any form of government.
Hitler’s closest Lieutenant, Hermann Goering famously described the simple process: Put the people in fear, and if you can keep them in fear, you can get them to do or accept anything that you want them to do or accept. They will turn into sheep.
The current 24/7 fearmongering about COVID "cases", even though 85% of "cases" are asymptomatic (i.e. the testee is not sick), is a perfect vehicle to instill the FUD that Goering describes.
What enables us to be tagged as a COVID "case"? The Positive Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test, which can discover in our sinus cavities the presence of some viral DNA from the COVID virus. Unfortunately, the PCR test cannot distinguish between inactive viruses and “live” or reproductive ones, and therefore cannot determine if someone is sick, or even if they are contagious. It's therefore useless as a diagnostic tool.
And yet, this insanely inaccurate test (with a false-positve rate of about 80%) is being used to create these exploding, hysterical and meaningless "case" numbers, which are then used to justify and impose draconian shutdowns and protective measures, being implemented variously across the world.
This "great experiment" is not over, and it's not clear to me what the end-game is, but everything about this fails this writer's smell test.
Who wins, and who loses?
