Thoughts on economics and liberty

The capture of government by the science establishment

This is an extract from the current draft of the book I’m writing on pandemics.

In this book I will not be discussing or debating the merits of lockdowns. I have discussed that issue at length in my complaint to the International Criminal Court. In that complaint I showed that there is no basis for a lockdown even for Ebola, let alone for a flu-like virus. Even if this was Spanish flu, there would be no basis to impose a lockdown.

In this book I want to discuss something much more sinister – the massive fraud being perpetrated on mankind by the science establishment (and I include both universities and private companies here) in collusion with politicians and the media.

The covid scam is not the only such example. Vast swathes of science have been captured by criminal scientists. The climate science fraud has been going on, unabated, for over three decades. But at least there are a number of good writers and commentators who provide alternative views to keep that scam at least under some check. In fact, if people simply read the IPCC’s technical reports they will find out that, like Bjorn Lomborg repeatedly emphasises, there is simply no basis for the exaggerated climate claims made by corrupt scientists. The data do not even remotely support the claims of “runaway” global warming.

But there are very few people who educate us regarding pandemic scams. As a result, many otherwise diligent people, like me, who study every issue in considerable detail before forming an opinion, have been taken by surprise.

The last such fraud was the 2009 swine flu “pandemic” but because it did not involve mass disruption of everybody’s life through lockdowns and mandatory masks, its learnings slipped below the radar. Most of us did not pay attention to the academic debates and ignored the lessons the scientists were supposed to have learnt from the swine flu scam.

But having personally suffered from the crimes being perpetrated by politicians and scientists in 2020 in the name of the covid pandemic (which it is not: i.e. not a pandemic), it has become necessary for me to study this matter. Just like we disbelieve “climate science” we must learn to disbelieve “public health science”. In fact we must learn to disbelieve all science and check out everything. We must never “follow the science”. We must “do” science, and that means applying a blow torch to every claim, demanding proof to back up every assumption. Where is the virus? Where is the proof that it causes the disease? What is the PCR test actually measuring? And so on. Proof for everything!

This much is clear as daylight now that the science establishment has been deeply criminalised, like a Mafia. Yes, we have a few honest scientists, people who are committed to principles, but they are getting as scarce as a hen’s teeth.

Most of this corruption has to do with the fact that government funding has intruded into scientific research which was earlier managed by the private sector (i.e. we the citizens in our private capacity). Private science necessarily had to be authentic because someone could profit only based on the truth. Falsehoods did not take anyone very far.

But the government’s intrusion into science changed everything. Terence Kealey’s analysis (Sex, Science and Profits) warns us against government funding of science. The fact is that today, universities, companies and government agencies collude behind the scenes to decide what is to be funded. This collusion operates like a Star Chamber: a black box which no one can pierce. This collusion should send shivers down our spine. The incentive structure for science no longer has anything to do with the truth but everything to do with politics, power and money. The biggest pile of research money doesn’t go to scientists who are looking for the truth. It goes to scientists who are best able to mislead the people and politicise issues through their “friends” in the media and big business.

Corruption in science has reached astronomical proportions. The very survival of mankind is endangered by this criminal “scientific establishment” that has captured taxpayers funds and is now also able to get the government to point its guns (police) against anyone who raises any question. This is not any conspiracy theory: it is just the plain and obvious nature of incentives that are embedded into the current government funding system for science. The truth is the greatest fatality in this process. But also, as we have seen, our liberty itself.
