Public releases the Proximal Origin documents. What they show, and why they're historic
"They may not have been evil exactly"--
Er-- they did it to retain their money and position knowing millions of people would suffer and die as a result of their blatant dishonesty. Same and withholding and demonizing info and access to early treatment with FDA "approved" remedies they KNEW to be safe and effective. That's evil enough in my book, not to mention humongous crimes against humanity.
First WMD, then Russiagate, now this. And the worst part about all of this is that you know something worse is going to happen later on.
This is exactly why my wife and I refuse any and all vaccinations for our kids moving forward, and are willing to take the slings and arrows from others for doing so. That doesn't mean I'm convinced that they cause autism (jury's still out on that), make me magnetic, or are meant as a population control mechanism. What it means is that, like a cheating spouse, if they are willing to lie about this, then what else are they willing to lie about? So many institutions, but especially medicine, rely on the general population trusting that they are staffed by generally good people, because in living our lives, we don't have the time to read 5 white papers a night, or the specialized knowledge and jargon to parse dense research papers. We implicitly expected these organizations to be run by good people because the vast majority of people we encounter on a daily basis are good, normal people. But it is very clear that I was wrong in thinking that. The people that make it to the upper echelons of places like the FDA, NIH, CIA, FBA are NOT like us. They don't think like us. And we certainly shouldn't trust them to have our best interests at heart.
I don't like that I now instinctively distrust everything I see or hear. It's an exhausting way to go through life. But I'll be damned if I trust them again. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, won't get fooled again."
When I saw how excited these science bureaucrats were to be fighting on Twitter, "winning" the daily war on Twitter, getting enemies silenced on Twitter, it made me wonder: is it possible to have a functioning, relatively sane and mature society in the Age of Social Media?
It should be obvious at this point that His Majesty, The Algorithm (which is the cruel tyrant that rules us) wants us all to hate and attack each other, not because of any conspiracy but because it "increases engagement" and really gives the people what they want: a chance to join up with a lynch mob and destroy people who irk or cross us, while pretending we're doing this for a good cause like "Justice" or morality or "ending Hate" (lol).
Social media and its tentacles have plunged us into a constant War of Reformation, where nothing matters but supporting and obeying your tribe while doing all you can to destroy the opposing tribe. It has debased our polity and society and all our cultural and sense-making institutions, who now think and act like deranged crackheads who are happy to wound even friends and family if it gets them to that next hit of self-righteous moralism.
Social media plus smartphones have given our society a wicked degenerative brain disease, and all the things we talk about here—expertise, trust, the integrity of media and academia, etc—are in the process of rotting and dying off. We seem to be in the first days of a very dark age looming up ahead...
Between this and the "Actually, racism is worse so go protest," the public health establishment has shredded its remaining credibility with me to a degree I would not have thought possible.
This is absolutely the worst example of malfeasance by the authorities since the Iraq WMDs, and is in fact even worse than that.
It's easy to believe you have moral courage when you don't actually need it. These people faced a test of theirs and failed it.
The latest example of the managerial class fabricating a false reality and labeling as conspiracy theorists those who failed to attest to its veracity
This story (I think we’ve known the essentials for at least a couple of years now, but it’s nice to have it in black and white) has been a watershed moment for me. I used to consider myself one of the sensible ones, and dismissed those who “believed conspiracy theories” and routinely questioned the mainstream narrative as nutters. No more. Never again. Trust is like Humpty Dumpty. “All the kings horses and all the king’s men...”

The modern Left would have taken the Church's side over Galileo
Yes. Trust is gone. They should be all be named in all the papers on the front page, like the watergate swindlers- along with the dangerous Dr Fauci. And people should publicly ask all scientists “what is a woman?” That is just the start of it.
I vote for the obvious, their actions are/were evil
The BlueAnons foaming at the mouth while denouncing this reporting as “fake news” is either knee-slapping hilarious or deeply troubling. Then again it’s the internet, so who knows if it’s even people.
Great journalism as always, keep force-feeding them the facts.
Matt - thank you for all the ground breaking reporting! Please consider the option that all or some of the scientists (my guess is Holmes and Farrar) were working with/for the biowarfare industrial complex that most likely created the virus, covered up its origins, created and reaped the gargantuan benefits of the “medical countermeasures” (vaccines) and used the CIC that you’ve exposed, plus what I call the Propaganda Industrial Complex (PIC) to convince the world it was a naturally occurring virus but for some reason the only way to confront it was to shut everything down and wait for a miracle shot - which they conveniently provided.
Many of the scientists and politicians you reference on Covid are in the PIC - their motives are neither scientific nor political. They are conspiratorial! (Covering up the vast biowarfare industrial complex that has ballooned exponentially since 9/11 and how it hijacked the world in March 2020 and still hasn’t let go)
The medical establishment is dead to me.
While all true - I'd say more than half tbe population doesn't care, and judging by how absolutely ZERO consequences have been suffered by these people, I assume nothing will change. In fact they are being elevated and celebrated still, in their new positions in academia and whatnot, as opposed to being perp walked down main street and having everyone throw rotten produce at them
Matt- As information likes this unfolds itself, I think you need to be more straightforward and provide honest assessments- they were evil pieces of shit. Depsicable. DO not hold back. Remember the lies that same cabal tells about you! You are a gentleman, but please do call a spade a spade- or even "a fucking shovel"! Thank you for all your work.
