by Russell Lamberti | A real-world economic and financial disaster is unfolding in Sri Lanka. Like countless crises before, this one is man-made. Lockdowns inflicted direct harm on almost the entire planet, but Sri Lanka is perhaps the first to feel so painfully the inevitable aftershocks of one of history’s greatest follies.
Dr David Bell | Public health relies on trust which is maintained by telling the truth, giving accurate information and sound advice. Advertising relies on manipulating the truth to persuade people to buy a product they may not need. The WHO has adopted this latter course.
Honesty in medical publishing, meaning publication on the basis of transparent rigorous review and impartiality, is of particular importance to medicine and public health. The outcomes of such publications contribute to saving or killing people.
by Gary Sidley | Throughout the covid-19 era the world has witnessed an unprecedented campaign of propaganda ostensibly aimed at increasing compliance with lockdowns and other restrictions. To date, there has been a stark reluctance for any stakeholder to accept responsibility for these manipulative and damaging tactics.
by David Bell | The societal changes of the past two years have been defined by, and led by, ‘public health.’ So it is right to look for public health analogies in the past to help understand what is happening, what the drivers are, and where they might lead.
by Dr David Thunder | If a class of experts with privileged access to policymakers goes badly wrong in its judgments, this may inflict significant harms on those affected by the policies and behaviour they recommend. However, the harms inflicted by official experts during the pandemic could have been hugely mitigated if expert advice had been given a more modest and humble role in the political process, and if expert committees had incorporated a much wider range of expert opinion.
Dr Jonathan Engler | The suppression of the concept of natural immunity has all the hallmarks of a coordinated misinformation campaign. It is difficult to tell exactly who the initiators of this were, although it is to be noted that the main beneficiaries have been governments and the vaccine manufacturers.
In line with the founding principles of the WHO and orthodox principles of public health, PANDA has decided to publish its submission for the INB hearings in advance, to encourage open debate in ensuring global pandemic preparedness is underpinned by a strong evidence base, which gives full consideration to the COVID-19 response.
by Dr David Thunder | The World Health Organization has proposed that the international community negotiate and eventually ratify an international “accord” or “treaty” that would effectively consolidate the position of the WHO as the pre-eminent public authority responsible for guiding and coordinating international pandemic responses.
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.
The acquisition of Twitter will almost certainly have far-reaching consequences for the way the global public sphere functions, since Twitter is widely viewed as the leading digital forum for public deliberation.
by David Bell | “Doing good” on a global scale has never been so popular, and never more profitable. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) ongoing pandemic treaty negotiations hold promise to lock in this edifying upwards shift of wealth, enabling a repetitive regime of lockdowns, border closures and coerced vaccination to continue the impoverishment and subjugation of those less fortunate.
by David Bell | On occasion the majority may need to swallow a risk for a time. Sometimes respecting the freedom of others will seem to cost us, but codifying human rights, and insisting on process, legalism, and law gives wisdom time to overcome fear.
From COVID-19 to Ukraine: Bouncing from One Crisis to the Next and the Importance of Staying Focused
by Dr Piers Robinson | Current political and economic agendas have major potential consequences for our societies. We simply cannot afford to continue tumbling from one highly propagandised crisis to the next and allowing our emotions to be harnessed by those who wield political and economic power.
by Dr David Bell | Has healthcare been stolen? As a resident of the West, I try to make sense from afar. If public health policy in African countries is to prioritize the people of Africa, then African expertise will have to form it free of the webs of neo-colonial intent.
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.
Last week gets my vote for the most eventful one in the two years of madness that has been the Covid policy response. These are the significant events that were underreported or mischaracterised by mainstream media.
by Nick Hudson | There are many pillars that support the Covid narrative. This collection of 20 of the most pervasive myths include the reality of each, with references.
by Wilton Alston and Dr Shibrah Jamil | Does the foundation of immunology, epidemiology, and ethics, on which medical decisions have historically been made, support the statement that the unvaccinated are driving the pandemic?
Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, many have questioned the motives behind lockdowns, virus regulations and, more recently, vaccines. Global advocacy group PANDA has spoken out against myriad decisions, questioning those in charge and challenging statistics and information. While they’ve garnered support along the way, the think-tank has also gained its fair share of critics. Below, PANDA’s founder Nick Hudson replies in a detailed article.
Whilst a conciliatory approach is always advisable, the reality is that PANDA has been approached by a great many employees asking for assistance and advice in circumstances where employers have unfortunately been neither fair nor principled in their approach to employees who choose not to vaccinate.
by Ivan Iriarte MD, Simon Phoenix PhD | In broad terms, the ARR compares how much the overall probability of an outcome reduced or increased. The RRR just compares the benefit, no matter how small, of one event versus another.
