I’ve promised a diversity of resources for this program, though here is the most helpful — our guest Andrew McLuhan’s website, at The McLuhan Institute. I will be back later to update, once I have a few more midyear videos in the can.
Here is something newsworthy — The New York Times has finally caught up with what we’ve been reporting for months about the PCR test (the polymerase chain reaction). This is a long-known issue, warned about even by CDC itself, as well as by the inventor of the PCR, Kary Mullis. The problem is much worse than they are saying; once you read the Times article, for a more complete picture, look at our most thorough coverage of the issue.
“Some of the nation’s leading public health experts are raising a new concern in the endless debate over coronavirus testing in the United States: The standard tests are diagnosing huge numbers of people who may be carrying relatively insignificant amounts of the virus.
“Most of these people are not likely to be contagious, and identifying them may contribute to bottlenecks that prevent those who are contagious from being found in time. But researchers say the solution is not to test less, or to skip testing people without symptoms, as recently suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
