  • (06:58) Being against one type of vaccine does not mean one is against all vaccines
  • (08:03) The media exists primarily to further the interests of powerful groups, not to take care of your personal health.
  • (15:51) We mistake popularity for truth. That which gets magnified becomes important at the expense of what is ignored.  
  • (17:51) Noam Chomsky. Manufacturing Consent. The elite news media create the majority of the info you consume. They determine what is true and what is not.
  • (23:05) How a tiny group of giant companies shape the world. The pandemic has benefitted the top US billionaires the most.
  • (29:26) COVID is the first War of the 2020s. War is an economic lever. Who ends up picking up the tab for all the government expenses related to COVID?
  • (39:53) COVID revealed a systemic weakness in the American healthcare system. The approach is to numb the effects of our problems rather than treating the source 
  • (43:12) The best way to figh the virus is to be in shape and keep your mind clear
  • (46:32) Emergency measures are often here to stay forever
  • (49:20) Questions to ponder:

    1. What dangerous precedents are being set by the so-called War on Covid?
    2. What role does the media have in perpetuating irrational fears in response to COVID, Russia/Ukraine etc? Who benefits? 
    3. Can you imagine society in 20 years if we’re still dealing with COVID at that point?
