SCIENCE. SENSE. SOCIETY.
PANDA’s analysis of the human and economic cost of the pandemic response promotes open science, human agency and courageous societies by empowering people’s choices.
Our teams of multidisciplinary professionals develop projects and content that encourage good science, rational debate and sound public policy, as well as empowering people to make informed decisions.
BREAKING THE CHAINS
Behavioural Science is a field of psychology used to change behaviour and views by influencing and nudging the unconscious mind. Teams are engaged by governments and institutions globally with the prime purpose of altering your decisions and behaviours.
PANDA’s in-depth collection of articles and analysis, written by the global experts we collaborate with, covers the breadth of the Covid response as well as exploring the diverse issues relating to politics, socio-economic and societal pressures that have been exposed through the pandemic.
This review attempts to empower you with key information to help you assess the World Health Organization’s candidacy as an authoritative global public health organisation.
by Nick Hudson | A bare-boned opinion on the broader context of the CORONAcrisis. It is intended to inspire people to add flesh to the counter-narrative that we must generate to avoid the dystopia that is threatened.
by Dr David Bell | The compliance thus achieved by the WHO has been vital to achieving a successful concentration of wealth, benefitting not just its major sponsors, but also the army of global health staff who have remained obedient throughout.
by Dr Piers Robinson | As debate over ‘The Science’ has increased, people are questioning whether there was more to COVID-19 in terms of underlying agendas, in particular with respect to global-level actors. Was it incompetence or coordination?
Global Health And The Politics Of Catastrophe: Who will save us from the WHO and its new world order?
by Dr David Bell | Imagine control of all future responses to virus outbreaks – influenza, for instance – being dictated to the entire world by a cadre of unelected health bureaucrats in a distant country or continent.
by Abir Ballan | Informed consent is one of your basic human rights to freely accept (or not accept) a medical intervention, based on knowing the full risks, benefits, risks of not having it, and knowing your alternatives.
Vaccine passports are a pointless ‘public health’ tool that will undermine trust in the medical profession and vaccination programs. They seem to serve economic, financial, political and ideological agendas. Most fundamentally, they are unethical.
Since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 global pandemic, many issues have arisen that run contrary to historical precedents and known and practiced public health principles of the last century. This article discusses some of these issues.
by Chris Waldburger | Part 1 | The power structures of liberal states depended on a credibility created by the valorizing of neutral, transcendent science. Science had eclipsed religion and superstition, and thus a political order of pragmatic science somehow overcame politics.
by Dr David Bell | The subversion of health for profit runs contrary to the entire ethos of thepost-World War Two anti-fascist, anti-colonialist movement. When people across politics can acknowledge this reality, they can put aside the false divisions that this corruption has sown
Threats to Freedom of Expression: Covid-19, the ‘fact checking counter-disinformation industry’, and online harm legislation
by Dr Piers Robinson | Freedom of expression is evaporating, evident in censorship during Covid-19, whilst now we see the emergence of online safety/harm legislation that might further curtail freedom of speech. But who has been responsible for the lion’s share of propaganda?
by Dr David Bell | The new public health response that was trialed during this outbreak is far more attractive to investors creating vast opportunities for future growth. Holding to the new dogma enables a positive career path and financial security, as did siding with the Inquisition centuries ago.
by Shay Zakov | In this work, we review the reports provided by Pfizer to the FDA for the trial’s first interim analysis. The reports demonstrate severe flaws in the procedure of approving Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine based on data from the vaccine’s phase III clinical trial.
When the foundations of civil societies are being overhauled at speed, and when tried and tested laws and policies are being replaced, people need open spaces for inquiry and debate more than ever. Social media platforms should not only take responsibility for facilitating such fora, but should actively embrace and encourage them.
