There should be no 'public health', period. No one should make their living on this, because the interests with actual public health are inherently mis-aligned. Case-in-point, per the RFK, Jr. book, Fauci was a newbie at NIAID in the late 1970's and there wasn't much going on. Cut to the emergence of HIV and he rode that hobby horse into the ground to get funding for NIAID, to the detriment of HIV patients. Money grubbing bureaucracies and actual health are never aligned to help the humans and all of these three to five letter agencies need to be abolished.

100%. Public health is a fancy way of saying, tyranny of the self-appointed expert class. At best they should serve in an advisory role, issuing recommendations that free humans can either follow or not on their own recognizance. They should never again be allowed to micromanage our lives through regulatory mandate - a pathology which is much older than Corona lockdowns (the ubiquitous 'no smoking' signs that cover public spaces being the most obvious example of their handiwork).

I don't think public health has anything to do with people being ugly. That is usually genetic. Unless you mean morally and spiritually ugly. Then it's part genetics and a lot of upbringing. Still not public health. If you're trying to say that all overweight people are ugly, then that's a matter of personal taste. Genetic and learned.

Having steered the population away from high protein (no carbohydrates) meat to ‘healthy’ alternatives like rice and pasta (all carb), away from animal fats to (toxic) seed-oils, encouraged ‘healthy’ salads which are not filling so inevitably result in snacking on sugary cakes, sweets and biscuit - now we have an ‘obesity crisis’.

If your salad isnt filling, you're doing it wrong. But then I eat salad by the mixing bowl. (and it doesn't hurt I'm a cook and actually put other things in it). :)

I've been gluten free for some time due to wheat allergies picked up working in bakeries. Whenever this comes up in conversation ( I rarely mention it, others ask me aboout it) the other person invariably says "I could never live without pasta/bread." My response it that there are decent substitutes, but it's funny, once you get over them- it takes about 4-6 weeks- you don't really miss them. It is an addiction of sorts, really.

I'm OK with no smoking in restaurants. I'd rather taste my food. But that is more about being polite. That said, the 25 foot injunctions and other crap are just silly.

Expand full comment

There's a reason they started with smoking: tobacco has been divisive since the moment Raleigh introduced it. Some genuinely adore it and others find it noxious. There are almost certainly genetic reasons for that, as with cilantro.

But the bans were obviously never about health (who goes to a bar for their health?) They were about social control, or more fundamentally, about accustoming people to the idea that unelected, anonymous bureaucrats could simply ban a certain activity, with no democratic input and no means of redress. It was about getting society used to the premise that this was a valid way of ordering society; once that premise was accepted, the camel's nose was in the tent and it was just a hop, skip, and a jump to 'two more weeks'.

Historical note: tobacco, centuries ago, was grown in England in substantial amounts. James IV of England hated the smell of smoking, thought it was unhealthy, so be banned tobacco farming. This led to an increase in imported tobacco. So why didn’t he ban this and ban smoking? Weeeell… tobacco imports were subject to Customs Duty which filled the Privy Purse and Jimmy, a prolific spender, was hard up and needed the money. So as tobacco use and therefore imports increased, so did Customs revenue and as much as King James hated smoking, he loved money much more. As ever - follow the money.

I agree. Many bars and restaurants have no problem with providing smoking areas often outside of the main area but that wasn't good enough for the regulators who went on about needing a (you guessed it) a safe and healthy workplace) for the staff. This was never true because patrons could always order inside and take their food/drinks outside to where they were sitting. As an aside, here, they have ramped up the tax on cigarettes so much that there is a thriving black market. I've recently read that the medical costs associated with smokers is no where near as much as we were told mainly due to the fact that many die younger. (their choice, I guess!)

Expand full comment

You are correct. Paradoxically whilst short-term medical expense increases, lifetime medical expense for smokers, drinkers, fatties is significantly less than virtuous, healthy people because the sinners die earlier and so do not live to require medical intervention fir non-related diseases, or require elder care. Their early death is also a benefit to pensions. I have to declare a dislike for smoking and so welcome no-smoking zones, but ‘live and let live’, I am for provisions for those who wish to smoke. But as you say, with ‘campaigners’ there never is enough - no matter what concessions they win, always, always, ‘it doesn’t go far enough’. And yes it ends up counter-productive. Increased taxes have encouraged smuggling and ironically a reduction in tax receipts. In some Countries, UK is one, packets must be plain (apart from garish illustrations of lung disease) and cannot carry the brand name. This has of course resulted in widespread counterfeiting, with product sold at lower prices. Put these two together and it defeats the original intentions, and encourages more smoking. I think Irish Republic has or will soon ban smoking in the street. Campaigners are agitating to prohibit smoking in cars with more than one occupant, and to ban it in homes where there are children present. There is an insatiable appetite for some to meddle in everyone else’s lives.

Expand full comment

It's the meddling that sticks in my craw. It inevitably leads to unintended consequences, and leaves the world an uglier, shabbier, more joyless place.

It also seems to me that it very often answers a non-existent demand. Before smoking was banned in bars, there was a brief time when bars had smoking and non-smoking areas. The non-smoking areas were reliably empty; non-smokers in bars (restaurants are obviously a different story) clearly didn't care that much about second-hand smoke. Then there were the low-quality studies about second-hand smoke itself, which tried to make a minor irritant into an actual toxin. Didn't take long before the studies were revealed as bunk, but by then they'd served their purpose.

Look at the way that campaign unfolded, and you see the blueprint for what they did with Corona.

You think you need public health to provide advice about washing your hands. Come on you are ignoring the fact that we would have figured all the so called benefits you mention and some anyway without public health agencies.

Expand full comment

Precisely.

The problem isn't public health making recommendations. The problem is them enforcing those recommendations as mandates.

The hand-washing example is an interesting one. It didn't catch on because public health enforced it. Initially the medical community was completely against it, as they thought germ theory was nonsense. But over time, evidence piled up, and it became standard practice.

If we'd had public health mandates in that era it's more likely they would have banned hand-washing entirely as contrary to The Science of the miasma theory.

Yes, but public health 'experts' 'know' that we need them to do it properly. When this covid thing got started, instructions sheets appeared in the restrooms at work with about 10 steps about how to wash your hands the safe way. I looked but couldn't figure out it out because they didn't make any sense then or now (like most of their instructions/guidelines etc)

Mission creep. The initial concept of public health - sanitation, hygiene, food quality, food handling, co-ordinating response to outbreaks of contagion - was sound. However over the last 30 years or so, the line between public health and private health has been eroded. Now private health has been socialised, nationalised. It’s now ‘the Nation’s health’ as if a Nation could have an aggregate of the health of the individuals in it.

Your waistline and diet, for example, is a matter of public concern, therefore your lifestyle is a matter for Governmental regulation and intervention on an individual, personal level. The excuse is… the burden on the health care system. Sound familiar? In the case of the UK with its Stalin era State-run Socialist leviathan the NHS, your adjudged poor lifestyle is a strain on the public purse unfair to other taxpayers, but even in the USA with its dog’s breakfast, mish-mash of Obamacare and private insurance, your lifestyle is unfair to other policy holders whose premiums will increase.

But it is discriminatory. And it discriminates according to class. The lifestyles of the bien-pensants, those of a liberal persuasion - Winter sports, general sportng & fitness activity, for example - with the frequent trauma that goes with that, is an approved burden, but lifestyle of the Deplorables, the Unwashed, junk food, smoking, drinking non-approved.

Just this week in the UK a legal requirement has been introduced for catering companies of 250 employees or more, to put the calorie count on menus next to dishes. Apart from the absurdity of measuring calorie count with variable portion sizes and variable ingredients, what is the difference between a company with 249 employees and 250? Well most restaurants do not have 250 employees, so the legislation is aimed at restaurant chains like hamburger restaurants and others that serve low cost, filling food to the Unwashed. Go to a high-end restaurant serving meals with 10x more calories than burger and fries at 20x the price and there will be no calorie count on the menu - because the upper echelons don’t need to be schooled in lifestyle choices, the same sort who are mask and vax zealots.

Public Health England, the Govt agency, did a lousy job during the CoVid crazy, so got closed down to be replaced by the UK Health Security Agency. So now your health, my health is a matter of National security - so we know where that’s heading.

Absolutely correct. The only way we avoid getting dragged back into the whole nightmare, as they're already threatening to do in the West and as is observably happening again in China, is to reject the premise that 'non-pharmaceutical interventions' are a valid tactic in any situation.

The way that happens is through savage mockery, yes, but it will also require simple, sustained non-compliant civil disobedience. Refuse to wear the masks, refuse to stay inside, refuse to close your business, refuse to pay whatever fines they attempt to punish you with, refuse to do anything they either ask or demand. Two years after 'just two weeks' it should be abundantly clear that obedience only results in more demands for obedience.

yes, my thought too.

When you send to them the latest (April) results from the countries that were doing a good job of tracking, they get very defensive, call it political BS, then tell me to quit sending them "that stuff".

And now, we are seeing the last of any country reporting any more data for liability reasons. The jig is up. If the Medical "leaders" are not going to step up and do / support this level of truth push back, all is lost. It is depopulation to soon be going on steroids.

We are beyond psychosis now.

Yes. Seeing tons of anecdotes about people dying suddenly very early 20s to 40s. Seems there is no curiosity about this among the public health mandarins.

Rintrah's covid essays are very good, but his Holy of Holies is "the climate crisis." He' s all on board with that one, going so far as to threaten to erase any comment that dares call into question that scam, as I recall. So...

Hmm. Kind of like Alex Berenson. Mystifying.

I appreciate Berenson for his covid/vaccine skepticism, but thought his disparagement of Malone--on an episode allocated to discuss the silencing of covid dissidents--was awfully, awfully suspicious. Especially since Malone was just starting to sound the alarm on a burgeoning worldwide totalitarian movement. Very weird.

Like that old Reese's commercial: "Who put peanut butter on my chocolate? They go great together!" I think biomedical security state and climate crisis will link hands and lead us to the utopia that will always be just a few years away.

this is basically my view. if we’re talking about virus ideologies, the corona complex is far better adapted to our social/governmental structures than climatism, which always just limped along by comparison.

You should try living in New Zealand then. The urgency is being ginned up by government at all levels. In schools, climate activism is a huge thing even for 5 year olds.

I don't find the panic over climate to be nominal. Already they are planning to eliminate all but electric cars and are favouring bike tracks over new roads, removing parking spaces and putting the charges collected from road users into public transport (that hardly anyone uses). Terms used are that it's a climate emergency and already there is talk of possible climate lockdown.

--"Masks, lockdowns and finally vaccines have not behaved as promised, they have not ended the pandemic."

Not behaved as promised. But there was no reason to believe they would. All previous studies and experience demonstrated otherwise.

The logical fallacy of argument from authority was trotted out by so-called experts, who were merely politically appointed bureaucrats or elected politicians, pronouncing on affairs outside their authority or expertise in reaction to the mob's call to "do something." Then they poured it on with panic porn, coopting media with millions spent in advertising, and smearing or censoring any with clinical experience suggesting other than the govt line.

Instead of responding with protocols to protect the most vulnerable, most at risk--everyone was treated as vulnerable and at risk. In the US, Fauci, Birx, and Redfield all cut their teeth in the emergence of HIV/AIDS in the '80s where they perpetuated the same nonsense--all were equally at-risk, where testing, track and trace, and research for a vaccine were their primary response.

I believe the lockdown of healthy people began with the lie of asymptomatic spread. We foolishly believed the “experts” who ignored thousands of years of medical history. This would’ve been the first time in medical history than a respiratory virus was spread asymptomatically.

i love the idea of heckling Neil Ferguson and Christian Drosten to their graves. can we add some names to that list? Fauci, Osterholm, Hotez, Offit, Daszek and the entire regular cast of TWIV? these people have no purpose in life unless we are in perpetual fear of invisible pathogens that only they have the supreme knowledge with which to protect us.

if you listen to TWIV for any length of time (2 1/2 years and counting) you see that what they want is for politicians to hand over the money and power with no restrictions or oversight. they want to explore every bat cave on earth and bring samples back to BSL4 labs in densely populated cities so that they can do serial passaging, genetic manipulation on humanized mice (GOF) to see how bad things could possibly get (one virologist said it was like compressing 2000 years of evolution before lunch break) and then make vaccines for all them them so that they can claim to save humanity and earn all the tax money we gave them.

if you don't agree with their plan for humanity, you can be deprived of your liberties and livelihood, packed away in some camp and forcibly inoculated.

we mere uneducated simple folk don't dare question and honestly lack the capacity to question their voodoo. we have only to submit and obey, secure in the knowledge that these noble scientists/gods are doing this for our own good.

my fear is that there are still plenty of people who are willing to go along with this in exchange for some false "safety" and a new "vaccine" every couple of weeks until there's not a functioning immune system left on earth

The very term "pandemic" was constructed to manipulate a frightened population. Though the term implies an interjurisdictional infection, all jurisdictions treated it differently, indicating its really just a cluster of epidemics. As we've seen, some governments managed it better than others.

Government leadership in emergencies is useful, but mismanagement is worse than no management, so it's important they get it right. The problem in this disaster hasn't been government management, but government mismanagement.

There will be a lot of lessons to be learned, but foremost should be that no emergency justifies overturning fundamental principles. As Ben Franklin wisely foresaw, it's way to easy to lose our liberty when we're frightened.

America 1st Patriots are still in denial that do no wrong Trump was completely bamboozled by a bunch of technocrats well practiced in fear mongering.

The more I think back to the Spring of 2020 watching Trump read his his prepared speeches every 5:00 pm each day now creates a huge feeling of embarrassment.

And we now know Trump was getting second opinion warnings from others embedded in his Task Force (Dr. Paul Alexander) to change course and demote his spokesperson team he assembled.

Trump should have followed through with his gut instincts and opened the country back up at Easter as he intended moving to early therapeutics and the key supplements strategy.

I know, easy to play arm chair quarterbacking.

The point made by Rintrah is misguided in at least one way. It sees the ultimate ground of political action as ethics, which is the same mistake everyone in political theory makes. Ethics won't stop anyone from doing anything. It's like saying taxation is theft. Maybe it is, but that's not going to stop taxation. A similar problem applies here: "you have no right" never trumps "were going to save lives" in public discourse.

Pragmatic considerations rule politics, ethics is gloss and fodder for political theory conferences. What needs to be done is to decouple the "we can do anything we put our minds to" ideology that comes (imo) from military successes, primarily in wwii. 'If we can mobilize all those people in short order to complete such a massive task, what can't we do! Especially with sCieNce!" Its this kind of retardation that drives interventionism at all levels of govt.

The only way to do the above (imo) is to convince people that epistemology matters, and that immature sciences aren't worth much and models are worth less. It works in first aid, e.g. a motorcyclist crashes, people want to help, tell them moving the rider may kill/paralyze him and they'll stop. Tell them they have no right to move him and they'll push you out of the way and begin to "help"

We have a lot of protection already but we won't use it.

It requires a 'State of Emergency' to be declared before Emergency Powers can be adopted.

those States of Emergency should not be adopted easily, readily, lightly and it should not go unnoticed when they are.

But they are adopted that way and it does go unnoticed.

And no one makes any attempt to bring it to the public's notice.

It is interesting in this context to note that regarding Bushfires in Australia at least a 'State of Emergency' is habitually declared.

I don't know if this is entirely the same 'State' as that declared by these 'covid emergency' declarations but it seems to me it would.

In which case it should be legislated and made clear that there's a considerable difference and 'bushfire emergency' would carry it's own set of 'emergency powers' and commensurate legislative provisions.

And this nation or State wide declaration should be reserved, as I think is intended in the constitution, for only those desperate scenarios where all the existing protocols, provisions, resources et al, are clearly incapable of solving the situation.

This was clearly never the case in this covid thing, never, ever. For it never did such inordinate harm.

And existing protocols and procedures were never attempted.

That's from the word 'go', right in the beginning that was true. But by the time two years later it's not only true that States of Emergency were improper it is so glaringly obvious it staggers the imagination. Not only was there/is there no emergency there's not even a threat currently.

The problem is that the protocol has lost its meaning. It is now seen as merely the obvious and proper procedure. As with Fire so with Covid. When there's a big bushfire they declare almost as a reflex action.

Then they go about ordering people to leave their homes and such which often (in my opinion) is of questionable necessity and can lead to needless property loss and heartbreak. But they don't go running all around the State ordering everyone to wear masks, lockdown and such madness.

So the people are not aware these are the same thing.

They are 'schooled' to believe 'State of Emergency' is a sort of proper and normal and necessary and good response to dangerous situations.

So they don't look into it. They don't think to object.

In fact in the bushfire situation we can clearly see after all these decades that there's nothing unusual about it that normal procedures couldn't handle. It's not an emergency at all within the proper meaning of the word.

And it should stop being seen as such and these measures being seen as a 'normal' response.

That would be the beginning of protecting ourselves: simply returning to first principles - those principles that established what States of Emergency are and why they have to be (reluctantly) declared sometimes and how they should be used, monitored and ended as soon as possible.

It/they should be a big thing. 'Big'.

Considering it a trifle and a norm is to establish that giving someone the power to rule despotically over your whole State or Country IS a trifle and a norm.

And - do I need to say it - giving someone despotic power over you should not be 'a trifle' and it should not be 'the norm'.

But that's where we are at right now. In this country (Aus) at least.

Without a peep, a murmur, from all those we'd expect to watch over this kind of thing, warn and advise and fight against such misuse.

But we can do it ourselves. Bug our reps. And tell them. Constantly. And vote every single one out if they won't do as we wish. Very hard for us to do when we're in such a minority? Yes, maybe impossible, but in the threatening to do it, in the 'bugging' we might make many of these sinecured idiot/villains uncomfortable and fearful enough for their futures that things may begin to happen.

It's for sure that doing anything - 'anything' - is better than the current state where all we do is talk to each other in columns such as these.

I agree with you.

It is absolutely true that "it should not be the job of our government to stop viruses from spreading by rationing social interaction among healthy people."

But most people here in Germany think this is exactly the job of the government.

One of the many lessons we learned from Corona is how willfully helpless so many people are, eager to put all their life into the hands of our benevolent government.

These people will not easily change. It can only happen with a slow wakeup. People realizing that the Corona policies were useless, and then little by little being willing to doubt everything of the official narrative.

It will be a slow process. It will take generations, and looking at the eagerness of the young people to follow all Corona orders, we will probably not be alive anymore when the change comes to fruition.
