Do Masks Matter?

From Social Science Space...  COVID Science and Politics – the Case of Face Masks A troubling turn in the public policy management of the COVID-19 pandemic has been the increasing tendency to justify interventions by assertions of scientific truth that bely the uncertainty of the evidence on which they are based. Nowhere, perhaps, is this...

Is Climate Change The New Religion?

https://youtu.be/c79UkAnrFhw Comment: The new Biden administration in the USA is putting climate change centre-stage again, and we're being told, here in the UK,  that once we are successful in suppressing "the virus" (mission impossible) we will have to continue living a seriously restricted lifestyle, including the continued wearing of face marks, to prevent the dire consequences...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F18kSA8OxqY Comment:  Studies show that having a good network of friends contributes to improved health, wellbeing and longevity. However, Aristotle lived and taught his philosophy prior to Christ coming into the world, so, doesn't that make a difference?  Surely Faith and Family suffices to make us healthy and happy into old age?  I once met a...

The Truth About The Lockdown…

Watching the totally compliant UK population accepting the need for the ongoing lockdown - that is, the highly questionable (to say the least) removal of our civil liberties - it strikes me that it would be useful for us all to be armed with some key facts and figures  to present to people who...
