Coerces, manipulates and forces its version of events - History has proven this to be a dangerous and draconian path leading to tyranny Under this one roof we offer some of the best alternative understanding discussion and interpretation.
Unlike YouTube - Twitter -FaceBook and other quislings, we do not censor truth - we expose it! We fight BS, propaganda and all manner of coercive manipulation. In that we are aided by some of the best and brightest critical minds on the planet.
When any source videos are taken down externally, we replace them with our own back ups or source them from a non draconian source feed.
WE REFUSE TO BE SILENCED!
The plethora of information out there, the substantiated and unsubstantiated requires a lot of facts, research and figures. These can be mystifying at best. Luckily as many as there are propaganda, job's worth hacks on the mainstream there are many times more numbers of independent truth telling journalists. Here we feature some of the finest to help people gain knowledge, understanding and a greater awareness of what truly is going down in today's lunacy of tyrannical takeover.
We are expected to accept without question, under threat of exclusion, censorship and damnation - the official narrative
It never was transparent, fair or unbiased, the mainstream media makes sure of that ass they spout their masters' bidding. On the other side there are professionals appaled at the arrogance of power, the hidden agendas, taken not in our name but for their own personal remuneration, power and greed. We feature some important voices, look for many more and support the cause for truth and transparency globally.
Dang "conspiracy theorist"! that Fauci (actually, it's true: he conspired to feed us an alarmist fatality rate that has been disproven)
"...In another article in the Journal, Guan et al. report mortality of 1.4% among 1099 patients with laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; these patients had a wide spectrum of disease severity.
If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases, the case fatality rate may be considerably less than 1%. This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10% and 36%, respectively."

Compare hundreds of millions of Asians' serene response to the coronavirus crisis with the West's fear, panic and hysteria
As the Raging Twenties unleash a radical reconfiguration of the planet, coronavirus (literally “crowned poison”) has for all practical purposes served a poisoned chalice of fear and panic to myriad, mostly Western, latitudes.
Berlin-based, South Korean-born philosopher Byung-Chul Han has forcefully argued the victors are the
“Asian states like Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore that have an authoritarian mentality which comes from their cultural tradition [of] Confucianism.”
“People are less rebellious and more obedient than in Europe. They trust the state more. Daily life is much more organized. Above all, to confront the virus Asians are strongly committed to digital surveillance. The epidemics in Asia are fought not only by virologists and epidemiologists, but also by computer scientists and big data specialists.”
That’s a reductionist view and plenty of nuances should apply. Take South Korea, which is not “authoritarian.” It’s as democratic as top Western liberal powers. What we had in a nutshell was the civic-mindedness of the overwhelming majority of the population reacting to sound, competent government policies.
Seoul went for fast mobilization of scientific expertise, immediate massive testing, extensive contact tracing, and social distancing, as well. But, crucially, most of it voluntary, not imposed by the central power. Because these moves were organically integrated, South Korea did not need to restrict movement drastically or to close down airports.
Hong Kong’s success is due in large part to a superb health care system. People in the frontline, with institutional memory of recent epidemics such as SARS, were willing to go on strike if serious measures were not adopted. Success was also due in large part to myriad professional links between Hong Kong’s and Taiwan’s healthcare and public health systems.... full article here on Global Research

2nd April 2020 - Now, that almost all of us, all over the world, have been forced into staying in what could be easily defined as house arrest, there is suddenly plenty of time to read books, to watch great films, and to listen to splendid music.
Many of us, for years, have been sadly repeating again and again: “if only we would have time…”
Now there is plenty of it – plenty of time. The world has stopped. Something terrible is happening; something we never wanted to occur. We sense it, we are terrified, but we do not know precisely, what it is. Not now, not yet.
Fiction has become reality. Albert Camus and his Plague. Jose Saramago and Blindness.
We did not really know that something like this could take place; even those of us who have close to zero trust in the wisdom of Western civilization.
Today, again, I read the same argument that has been sending chills down my spine, each time it is repeated. And repeated it is being, now regularly, at least in Europe. There, Fascism is clearly back. Dr. Luboš Motl, a Czech theoretical physicist, who was an assistant professor at Harvard University from 2004 to 2007:
“And they believe that the structures which allow them to survive – the governments, banks, and so on – are ‘evil’. Some are just financially illiterate. But others know what they are saying, and rejoice in demanding that trillions be sacrificed in order to infinitesimally increase the probability that a 90-year-old will avoid infection and live a little bit longer. They don’t accept their dependence on society and the system at all. They don’t realize that their moral values, their ‘human rights’, are only available if paid for by prosperous societies.”
A doctor… my God! A “prosperous society” means, obviously, a capitalist, Western society. Imperialism, neo-colonialism! To the people like him, clearly, not every human life is equal. ‘Value’ depends on age, and perhaps on race?’
It has always been like this, in the West, but at least it was concealed, somehow. Now it is out in the open. And I am shaking. Not from fear, but from revulsion. I definitely do not want to live in “Motl’s world.”
But back to the main topic of this essay.
Now we finally have that proverbial time to read, to watch films, and to listen to music. Involuntarily, but time we have, nevertheless. We also have plenty of time to think, think, think.
The great and now deceased Uruguayan writer, an icon of the left, Eduardo Galeano, once told me, at his favorite Café Brazilero in Montevideo:
“In order to be a great writer, one has to be a great listener, first.”
I have to add: And a great reader, observer.
You can only produce great books, films and essays, after you listened to thousands of people speak; people rich and poor, bright and senseless. And after reading hundreds of books, and watching hundreds of excellent films.
It is impossible to change the world for better, after only consuming the cheapest pop and porn.
My Russian/Chinese mother, a painter and architect, has always told me, ever since I was a child:
“Even if you end up being an abstract painter, you cannot cheat the basics: you have to first learn how to draw a face, a human body. You have to know the classics, philosophy… Only then you can let your fantasy to go wild.”
Now, with the repulsive era of the COVID-19, we are all grounded.
Time to catch up on what we have been neglecting, in terms of those intellectual inputs.
We are seated down on our sofas, we open our laptops, ready to download great films and music, and… and… nothing! ...... full article here at CounterCurrents
