Guantanemo might be a good place to isolate all of those who want to herd their immunity.


This is just Spencerism for the selfish and lazy.

Throw the old, weak and vulnerable under the bus and takes ya chances with 90 plus percent odds!

No decent human would even want membership in such a savage society as that.

But if the Great Barrington officials are against this Trump plan,
Who is going to make Great Barrington Great Again?

Oh, making it harder for the folks that are distancing and wearing masks to keep themselves and others healthy falls into the bizarro world of trumpism.

Great Barrington is the home of the Schumacher Center for a New Economics, founded in 1980 to further the work of E. F. Schumacher (Small is Beautiful, 1973), housing and maintaining his papers and promoting his ideas. They are diametrically opposed to those of AIER, which consist of all of the worst of the Randian and Austrian “free-market” blather, with connections to big money, big carbon big baloney, etc.

Never trust a libertarian. One of the small but rapidly growing number of economists I trust and respect once referred to them publicly as "cowardly anarchists.

This is a link but look him up. “Great” reputation, Trofim Denisovich Lysenko.
Soviet scientist whose theories about plants became the official policy of Stalin.
It cost an estimated 15-30 million deaths by starvation (Chinese [famine of 59-62 under Mao] and Soviet).
It cost imprisonment of thousands of scientists who disagreed with Lysenko, many of whom were executed for opposing Lysenko.
Pre-Lysenko the Russian genetic science was one of the best in the world.
Lysenko did not believe in genes or in (Russian) Gregor Mendel’s theory of genetic inheritance.
It gave us the term “Lysenkoism” - a term we should never forget.
Today, we see history’s rhyme.
Who among Trump’s “science experts” will this “…ism” be named after?

There is evidence of natural herd immunity, which has been the case for every flu virus historically (since the vaccines have only been 1% effective according to 2 meta-studies by the Cochrane Collaboration, and we would have had major epidemics for many years if it were not the case). Here is a study that estimated the natural herd immunity of the COVID-19. This meta-study found that the herd immunity level of the COVID-19 appears to be at 10-20%, and probably already achieved in many areas of the world. The PCR tests are not appropriate or reliable, and considered grossly inaccurate by the inventory himself. This is a “case-demic” not a pandemic at this point.

The 2020 population of Illinois is12,659,700 according to the worldpopulation reveiw.

The 2015 Census estimates put the population at 12,859,995, which was a decrease from the 2014 numbers. Illinois is one of only 7 states that has a negative growth rate in 2016. At -0.17% per year, it is ahead of only West Virginia.Between 2000 and 2010, the population of Illinois grew by a mere 3.3%, compared to the national average US population growth of 9.7%
The population of Sweden is about 10 million and the economy was not unstable before the pandemic.

All this virus insanity is about imposing a terrifying tyrannical techno-fascist agenda upon the entire world and it is from The World Economic Forum. WE THE PEOPLE MUST RESIST NOW!

Klaus Schwab and his cronies (Bill Gates, Elon Musk, the WHO, Bloomberg, Eric Schmidt, Zuckerberg and their ilk must be stopped!
