I am concerned.
Science and good medicine are about finding facts and that process often requires dissenting opinions until the truth is found. No one has a monopoly on the truth, but those who want only “their” truths – so they can control and manipulate us will censor honest discourse. This is being done now on a massive scale.
If you look at the history of medicine, very few of the “truths” of history have been borne out. Doctors would bleed people, claimed eggs caused heart disease, margarine is good for you, and a thousand other myths through the ages.
So regarding censorship, look at this Tucker Carlson clip and if it doesn’t scare you as much as me, you’re in dreamland.
My wife and I lost a lot of family in Nazi Germany and Communist Russia during the government purges that occurred there. Their tune was the same as the one being sung by YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Google: “We know the truth and that is what you will get. No opposing views will be allowed, so we will protect you from them.”
It’s time to speak up.
If we don’t it will be too late.
Have a great week.
