  1. How about providing photos AND naming the place- that way everyone is happy.
  2. Indeed we have- in my experience the ones who routinely trot out the 'conspiracy theory' line are the ones who also like to use ad hominem attacks, and that always tells me something about their rational abilities.
  3. Bear in mind education does not necessarily equate to intelligence, especially creative intelligence/insight. I'm educated to post graduate level and in my experience, education is as much about training people what they are permitted to think about, as it is about imparting knowledge. That is backed up by these articles on the 'NASA creative genius test'- https://ideapod.com/born-creative-geniuses-education-system-dumbs-us-according-nasa-scientists/ 'We are born creative geniuses and the education system dumbs us down, according to NASA scientists' [as you said the title says it all :)] https://twentyonetoys.com/blogs/teaching-21st-century-skills/creative-genius-divergent-thinking 'The test results were shocking: 98% of 5-year-old children fell into the “genius category of imagination”, this number dropped to 12% for 15-year-olds and to 2% for adults. What the education system doing to our brains, our sheer capacity to imagine, stay curious, and being creative, is shocking, to say the least. All of us know that we are still sending children to schools and tuitions to make them ready for jobs, train them to test, and get admissions into colleges. What we don’t realize is, that in the process, all of us, and now our children are losing their most natural and precious skills.' https://medium.com/@connect_75384/the-end-of-education-94f3a39fe97c 'The test results were shocking: 98% of 5-year-old children fell into the “genius category of imagination”, this number dropped to 12% for 15-year-olds and to 2% for adults.

It is possible that educated people are less likely to look into what the mainstream label as 'conspiracy theories', not because of intelligence, but, because their education has trained them not to stray outside of mainstream narrative; trained them to mistrust anything that goes against their educational authorites- in effect, the label 'conspiracy theory' becomes a signpost saying 'do not go there'
  4. No, it's a question. One you can't answer other than by bleating 'conspiracy theory....conspiracy theory...conspiracy theory....' But we know that there are plenty of non-extremists who speak against aspects of the lockdowns, compulsory masking, compulsory/coerced vaccinations etc- who are intelligent, who aren't denying covid exists etc, etc. It's not speakers dominating the rallies I'm asking about, it's the media being extremely selective about who they are showing, and they're focusing on the extremists. It's more sinister with the social media, as they're not so much focusing on extremists, as censoring anyone who opposes any aspect of the mainstream narrative, leaving only those who will be seen as extremists and conspiracy theorists.
  5. It is a good question.I'd be quite interested in seeing some clips of the speakers who weren't so extreme, but can't seem to find any. It is highly suspicious that social media channels are clearly taking down so many clips and yet leaving up ones of speakers who fit neatly into the 'conspiracy theorist' box. Does anybody have links to videos of the other speakers?
  6. It is a damning incitement of society in 2021 that a man is fined thousands of dollars because "He was outside the State Courts after his court proceedings on July 2 when he was caught on video with his mask off" and, many of the articles readers not only aren't appalled, but instead think the fine should be higher or imprisonment would be more appropriate.
  7. Stay on the point. I was simply pointing out that this- is drivel.
  8. This is nonsense. You know full well that variations will require constant updated vaccines.
  9. Good to see him and other celebrities condemning the governments intentions to make vaccines compulsory/compelled. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/jul/06/richard-ashcroft-quits-tramlines-festival-owing-to-its-covid-research
  10. You said. We DO have appalling health in the West- very high levels of type 2 diabetes, CHD and obesity, in the main optional in that they are caused by eating rubbish food and not moving, and, they're not necessarily in those who have lived long lives, but increasingly occurring in the young. Not only does this affect the actual individuals, it also locks up the heath services which have to patch up the damage caused by these uneccessary diseases and manage the conditions. People go on about covid overwhelming the NHS- it is far more overwhelmed by having to deal with all the consequences of the western diet and lifestyle diseases.
  11. Longevity ain't health. Longevity is mainly associated with keeping ill, priveliged westeners alive as long as possible with drugs. Obesity, type 2 diabetes, CHD etc, mainly caused by affluent western lifestyle and bad diet, are at their highest levels, and far exceed the levels in poorer nations- the fact that those obese, diabetic, CHD ridden individuals are kept alive for record durations with the use of symptom management drugs, does not mean they are healthy- far from it. If the poorer nations weren't subject to oppression, mosquitos and lack of access to clean water, they'd not only be more healthy than the average westener, but probably live longer too, despite having far less access to modern medical care.
  12. Good point. Let's face it, one of the reasons so many people have died from covid in the 'civilised west' is the appalling health due to diet and lifestyle, with record numbers of type 2 diabetes, CHD, obesity etc- all known factors that greatly worsen ability to deal with covid.
  13. Perhaps in India they're more careful to count only those whose death was actually caused by covid, rather than those who died of other things but just happened to have covid as well? That would make the figures a lot lower, wouldn't it?
  14. That's a shame, cos you're going to be living in it in the near future if you don't start opposing things like compulsory/coerced vaccinations. It is disturbing that so many on here aren't aware of that system [or, are aware of it but think the UK is somehow immune].
  15. They did, and were immediately labeled as 'conspiracy theorists' . It was obvious from the start that this could all lead to compulsory or coerced vaccination, I said it myself, but, of course, was labelled as 'paranoid' and of being a conspiracy theorist. Actually, wasn't someone on this or the other thread demanding examples of conspiracy theories that had turned out to be true? Look no further.
