There are times when it seems that nothing will ever be the same again. Many of us long to go back to normal life where we can work, play, pay our taxes and observe professional scribes and commentators vociferously debate the arguments du jour. But when it gets to the stage where even pachyderm enthusiasts are consistently ignoring gigantic herds of elephants stampeding around them, their active cognitive dissonance and Nelsonian ignorance is nothing short of enraging.
Spiked has published a spiteful article by Fraser Myers that claims HART is “notorious for its anti-vax statements”. This follows a debate between him and Andrew Bridgen MP on GB News in which Bridgen brought along facts and Myers repeated the phrase “anti-vax conspiracy theory” numerous times.
We appear to be living through a blatant attack on what it means to be a sovereign human being. With our freedoms being eroded from all angles and the worrying shadow of a digital, programmable monetary system looming, we plebs must sharpen our focus.
Alongside society’s increasing recognition of the pervasive harms caused by the unprecedented covid responses, those culpable for the disastrous policies seem to be struggling to accurately recall their contribution to the madness.
The sceptical community – living up to its decentralised worldview – is not short of opinions and theories, robustly debated. These are too numerous to cover in detail in this short piece: it suffices to say that they cover a wide spectrum ranging from calamitous ineptitude (and innumeracy) of politicians and civil servants, deceitful and underhand sales…
How will we look back on 2022? For most but the most die-hard Zero Covid addicts (who had to wait until China punctured this illusion only a few weeks ago), victory was declared over Covid early in the piece when the government backed down from its obscene NHS injection mandate in February and ‘Plan B’ restrictions were also subsequently rescinded.
On December 1st, 2022, the Department of Health and Social Care released a document titled ‘Technical report on the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK’. Including Chris Whitty (Chief Medical Officer) and Patrick Vallance (Chief Scientific Advisor) among its multiple authors, the report is specifically aimed at future medical, scientific and public health leaders, and is intended to relay what they have learnt from their experiences over the last three years.
One of the extraordinary things about the past few years is the extent to which data which very obviously suggests one thing has been reinterpreted to suggest something else, merely to fit the “approved” narrative.
The recent actions of the financial technology company, PayPal, to close the accounts of subscribers expressing political opinions of which they disapprove, represents the latest example of censorship within so-called liberal democracies.
An understanding of Threshold Concepts Written by Val Fraser, Educational Advisor My field is essentially teaching and learning and particularly the field of learning theory, which means how we learn best and most efficiently. I largely adhere to the social constructivist model which means we learn in the company of others through collaborative dialogue. Sometimes […]
Those of us who have spent the last 2 years researching and writing about all aspects of the pandemic and its management, sometimes find it hard to fathom why our colleagues appear so blind to harms which have seemed to be staring us in the face.
Rishi Sunak’s revelations in The Spectator on 1 September reveal his disquiet at the influence SAGE advisers wielded during the pandemic, the perils of applying lockdowns, the inappropriate fear messaging targeted at the public based on exaggerated modelling of data and, importantly, the censorship of dissenting views within ministerial meetings.
The ubiquitous deployment of behavioural-science techniques – ‘nudges’ – to increase compliance with both covid-19 restrictions and the vaccine rollout has raised major ethical concerns. Particularly alarming has been the state’s strategic use of fear (or ‘affect’ in the language of behavioural science), shaming (‘ego’) and peer pressure (‘norms’).
As described in a previous HART bulletin, there has been a pervasive reluctance for the powers-that-be to discuss the questionable ethics of the covert behavioural-science techniques used by the Government throughout the covid-19 messaging campaign.
Established western democracies are hosting the overt expression of hate – in words and deeds – directed at a minority outgroup, the likes of which have not been observed for almost a century. The victims of this onslaught are those people who have made the decision not to accept the offer of a Covid-19 gene-based ‘vaccine’.
The BBC’s Clive Myrie was at his most lugubrious this week, walking past dozens of empty ICU beds at the Royal London to find 5 apparently unvaccinated patients and then showing one gentleman having his tracheostomy tube removed so he could tell the viewers to get vaccinated. All this to woeful background music.
