Viruses Do Not Kill

Viruses Do Not Kill

Do not any longer allow them to blame any of the woes we suffer on a virus.

Your body’s reaction to a virus may kill you, but viruses do not kill you.

Get clear on that; it is a reaction to a virus that kills.  When a virus, or another pathogen like a bacteria or fungus,  invades your body, your body reacts via an immune system:  Let someone at Harvard tell explain it to you: “While the immune system protects us from many pathogens, the inflammation that occurs as part of the immune response can also damage our own tissues and impair the function of our organs when pathogens stimulate a very strong response.”

Again, be clear, it is a response that does the damage.  Yes, in order for there to be a response in a healthy person who has no autoimmune maladies, there must be an offender to respond to, such as a virus, but IT IS THE RESPONSE that does the harm and even kills sometimes.

This is not splitting hairs; this is drawing a distinction between a provocation, such as by a virus, and a response, such as governments around the world have been offering/forcing in response to a virus.

In the United States it was the government, NOT A VIRUS, that caused businesses to shutter and millions of people to lose jobs and lose their businesses; many of those destroyed businesses taking down lifetimes of labor, love and savings.  It was the government that caused Americans to fear each other.  It was the government that restrained worship at churches and exercise outdoors in parks, even persuading people to remain indoors and not get the sun exposure that so helpfully creates virus-fighting Vitamin D within the human body.

It is some of the state governments that have now thrown election integrity into doubt by not following laws in determining how citizens would vote, or even demanding that ONLY citizens vote.  Mail-in ballots, drop-boxes, ballots counted though days late, are all methods by which the people rightfully question the validity of this past election and possibly the next.  (Links to examples not provided because choosing one for each example would be like drinking from a fire hose; examples abound if you search for them.  Start with Mike Lindell.)

It is the government that is responsible for so many maladies America is now suffering, including financial, spiritual, medical and political.

How does one go about destroying liberty, subverting the people and their rights?  It is hard to do with a Constitution that enumerates certain rights and prohibits Congress from abridging them.  Sometimes government needs help; a generally compliant populace aids in their own destruction, but so do powerful people who can control dialogue.  The first amendment to the US Constitution reads:  

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The men (yes men) who wrote that prohibition into law knew that there were certain abilities that the people must have in order to remain free.  Among them is the ability to worship in accordance with the dictates of conscience that harm no other.  Among them is the ability to speak freely- without threat of sanction- if no other is harmed, literally harmed, I do not speak of hurt feelings.  Among them is the right of the people to assemble, peaceably, so that they may discuss the issues of the day and the working of the government that is formed after the preamble which starts WE THE PEOPLE.  Leftist only want people to think of the people BEING the government when the people agree with leftists.  And among them is an ability to petition the government- those elected- for a redress of grievances.

How to subvert free people?  With violence?  No.  With largesse?  Some.  With fear?  Many.  With Lies?  Many more.

How many of these right integral to liberty were abrogated by lockdowns, or during lockdowns, at least to some extent?  Churches were closed.  People have been intimidated when speaking their minds in the public square- though ostensibly not by Congress, but by powerful Congressional allies who control forums such as, well you know them, which cancelled the account of even a sitting President.  And this when Congress has offered some measure of protection to these forums.  People were kept from assembly not only in church, but in other venues; parks were closed, the ocean was closed, non-essential businesses, (those which are not big-time contributors to government), were closed: places where people discuss the issues of the day.  As for a redress of grievances, did we not read how more than a few judges did not allow some cases, some petitions, credibly alleging election results-changing shenanigans to proceed for a lack of standing of all things, not even pretending to examine the facts in question?

Virus or reaction?

And this for a virus that Dr. Fauci thought might be like a severe flu.  See the New England Journal of Medicine March 26, 2020 article by Dr. Fauci et. al.

On the basis of a case definition requiring a diagnosis of pneumonia, the currently reported case fatality rate is approximately 2%.4 In another article in the Journal, Guan et al.5 report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity. If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively.2  [Emphasis mine]
