Every time I publish a post like this, a lot of very hostile people swarm the comments to tell me that virus aren't real and so forth. In an experiment to see whether this can be mitigated, I'll be restricting comments to subscribers for a few hours. This is not the New Way of Things, just an experiment. I'll see how it works and proceed accordingly.

If you want to yell at me and tell me what a disingenuous person I am, please consider waiting a little bit and reading what I've written, or signing up for a trial subscription.

EDIT: Comments now open to all.

Your analysis makes perfect scientific sense, but I know from sad personal experience that some (maybe many) physically healthy elderly folks in U.S. care homes were dispatched to hospitals after a cough or 99-degree fever, where they were isolated from their families and were -- intentionally or not -- starved and dehydrated to death, sometimes under restraints.

Other elderly I knew were ventilated to death; one physician acquaintance was strapped to a bed after testing positive, was denied visits from his wife, his pleas for ivermectin were ignored by his medical colleagues (because he was a selfish un-vaxxer), he was put on a vent and left in a room for 10 days before he finally died.

Call it iatrogenic death or call it murder, I personally believe a majority of U.S. elderly deaths (and maybe a majority of ALL U.S. deaths) occurred under similar circumstances.

My belief is that doctors and nurses were systematically terrorized by government lies, and rather than risk their own deaths, they chose to ignore science and facts and to let other people die. 💔

Understanding this requires 3rd order thinking in a world of 1st order thinkers.

So they employ 3rd world witchcraft to satiate the 1st world need to feel safe from verwy, verwy scarwy viruses.

What's ironic is 3rd world countries could not care less about practicing this voodoo.

They're worried about where their next meal comes from as the first world plays a Fairytale in Futility.

Really, really, really enjoyed reading this. Such an excellent explanation. I appreciate so much that you take the time to make complex issues understandable for the non-scientifically-minded.

And you know, it's a funny thing. An inadvertent species of really-not-a-good-idea lockdown sort of animal has been the vanishing of multi-generational housing arrangements in the prosperous West. Them drippy-nosed toddlers are good for everyone to have around, stimulating immunity to every nasty bug a little kid can attract. The segregation of ages is so bad for everyone in so many ways.

According to Dr John Campbell (and England death statistics) there is currently a deficit, as it were, of death by respiratory causes, while, otherwise excess deaths are still occurring (and especially in some categories such as cardiovascular causes). This rather backs up the "only a small proportion are susceptible to respiratory disease at any time argument" (and we know who those are, by and large, the very elderly, frail and already unwell) and suggests that that is the evidence that the "pandemic" has harvested those people (and thus shows what we would usually expect after a pandemic - a period of 'lower than normal deahts') while the 'other' excess deaths are evidently from other causes.

Thank you for taking me by the hand and leading me through a fascinating explanation of such a complicated situation.

I find myself educated once again. You changed my mind and my opinion.

Thanks for this magisterial survey and explanatory paradigm about how lockdowns, hygiene theater, and other suppression of run-of-the-mill viruses paradoxically exacerbated CV which comparatively "faces fewer adaptive immune constraints". You very reasonably posit that the standard SIR model greatly overestimates the Susceptible percentage; let me add that it likely also underestimates Recovered numbers of previously asymptomatic Infected, generating inflated Infection Fatality Rate.

Well said that given lower susceptible, "we wasted much effort locking down and vaccinating people who were invulnerable to infection in any case. This was entirely useless if not actively harmful, because Covid vaccination, it turns out, does not necessarily take you out of the susceptible column. On the contrary, it has bizarre and unexpected effects on virus susceptibility, often increasing it both in the near- and longer-term. ... The problem isn’t that lockdowns do nothing. It’s that they’re just effective enough to be dangerous [by favoring new pathogens over] endemic viruses that have been around forever ... boxed in by adaptive immunity."

Not long ago, I would have thought it unlikely that the consensus of a specialized medical/scientific community was wrong, and some anonymous internet poster was right.

Now, it seems perfectly normal.

Fascinating and useful post.

More ammunition against lockdowns is always welcome.

Sorry if i missed it in my read through, but i didn't see what you suggest we do about things like flu vaccination campaigns. How does getting infected differ from getting vaccinated in a viral interference model?

What's really infuriating is the fact that these ideas were not unknown to the medical community long before Covid-19 appeared, but almost all of them decided to look the other way and go along with lockdown and vax campaigns nonetheless.

That was interesting! So, by isolating people and making them mask up and sanitise when they went out, it caused all the old, normal viruses to be knocked out. Meaning covid had no competition. That makes sense. Bit like in iRobot where the old robots get knocked out by the new improved robots!

Basically, everything the authorities made people do simply made it all worse and, if they had done nothing, nothing much would have happened. World run by idiots.

So very interesting. When my children (born '78-'87) were quite young, someone was always sick at Christmas--we came to call it "The Christmas Sick". In several years we placed a roll-away bed in the living room, so that sick child could be near the Christmas tree, and participate in Christmas morning present opening. In all my years since I had never heard of this pattern in other families.

Good God, this is so good. If only our “”experts”” would read this but hey ho. The Dutch Health Advisory Board just advised the government to start a new vaccination campaign this autumn, I am afraid it will never stop.

What seems most clear is that we are in general far too confident in our ability to understand what's going on in any biological system.

My sub stack is also beset by virus deniers. I just ignore them because what else can I do?
