Democracy

If a people is successfully worked on by behavioural psychologists, but democracy is power of that same people, then what does democracy do? Presumably it amplifies the effect of the behavioural psychologists.

Treatments neglected

From Stanford University's review of treatments (https://covdb.stanford.edu/page/covid-review/) dated May 1: "There are also several promising investigational compounds that have not yet entered into clinical trials including single-domain Abs, ACE2 mimics, and fusion inhibitors. Several members of ...

You're wasting your time

If there is an intention to end restrictions - if - then there needs to be a coordinated effort to develop and deploy preventive medications in addition to vaccines, and quickly. You lockdown sceptics should be demanding it. Trying to reason with people who have been scared out of their minds is a w...

Fetal tissue vaccines

An article linked to here under this title has, "If all pro-lifers rejected such vaccines, moral alternatives would be found and an ethically, morally and biblically wrong industry might end." I would have thought the kind of society we now have would rather get rid of the pro-lifers than look for m...

Re: Have a Look at my Chestnuts

The problem with saying "There is no evidence whatsoever..." is that someone may, in reply, cite some evidence, leaving you with egg on your face.

Defeating SARS-CoV-2

I would have thought any partially-effective measure against this virus would cause it to evolve to evade that measure. In that case it seems logical to develop and apply many measures simultaneously. It looks as if governments are fixated on vaccines and social measures, ignoring others. Is there a...

Re: Ivermectin

If there are so many bad studies of ivermectin and whatever else, why is this? Why waste time and money doing bad studies? Perhaps there needs to be a crash programme to fund decent studies so that we know things, starting last year. The government seems to have bet the farm on vaccines (and lockdow...

inhalants

The search facility here reveals no results for lipopeptide nor Aeronabs. I don't know what is going on with these but something ought to be - see https://scitechdaily.com/an-antiviral-nasal-spray-to-prevent-covid-coronavirus-transmission/ and https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/08/2008112349...
