I’m not sure about you, but I am pretty sure that the decline of Western Civilization has been dramatically hastened over the past 2 years. Dogma has replaced science and common sense is no longer common.
Without any apparent reservation whatsoever, the Political, Medical, and Scientific powers that be, have made an all-out assault on the intellectual capacity of the average US Citizen. We have even had the opportunity to observe a political operative proclaiming that “I am science and if you disagree with me, you disagree with science”. Beware of false prophets! The statements that Joe Rogan and his Podcast guests made were far more scientifically based, yet he and they have been attacked relentlessly by the media and their political counterparts (see cancel culture).
“Sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts”… That is the Merian Webster Definition of “common sense”. This is now defunct and gone! Therefore, let us all agree to have “Uncommon sense”. That is the capacity to understand that we are being deceived and lied to by the powers that be and sold a false bill of goods.
This isn’t just about Vaccines, lockdowns, social distancing, and masks. Case in point…… CO2 (Greenhouse gases). In a landmark 2007 Supreme Court ruling, the EPA concluded that it had the right to regulate “greenhouse gases” thereby determining that CO2 was a “pollutant”. I am not sure how many people are aware of this, but CO2 is plant food. A recent Louisiana court decision dictated that the EPA needs to use realistic metrics when evaluating the costs or benefits of more CO2. Using a higher, real-world discount rate mandated by Congress reveals that the “social cost of carbon” from increasing carbon dioxide emissions is a net benefit to society. That is correct. More CO2 benefits society and the people of the Earth.
