CENSORSHIP by Medium of Analysis of Covid-19 Spread and Policy

By Robert Wenzel - March 22, 2020 at 03:30PM


Daniel McAdams, executive director of the Ron Paul Institute, sent me a link to an essay at Medium about the spread of COVID-19 and the proper policy.

He wrote:
Best thing I've seen on covid-19...Long but worth reading:
The author of the piece, Aaron Ginn, using data from the CDC, WHO, etc., after detailed analysis reached the conclusion that:
When you consider the environment COVID-19 prefers, isolating every family in their home is a perfect situation for infection and transmission among other family members. Evidence from South Korea and Singapore shows that it is completely possible and preferred to continue on with life while making accommodations that are data-driven, such as social distancing and regular temperature checks...

The COVID-19 hysteria is pushing aside our protections as individual citizens and permanently harming our free, tolerant, open civil society. Data is data. Facts are facts. We should be focused on resolving COVID-19 with continued testing, measuring, and be vigilant about protecting those with underlying conditions and the elderly from exposure. We are blessed in one way, there is an election in November. Never forget what happened and vote.
It was a well thought out piece. You can debate it if you choose, but, again, it used data from sources such as CDC and WHO and took a reasoned approach.

Given the amount of hysterical commentary from mainstream media, which in many cases is extremely misleading, I found the piece a refreshing alternative thought piece. There is a lot more right about the article than wrong and the conclusion was spot on.

But the popular essay publishing site, Medium, took it down.

This is what you now find at the link:


Got that?

An essay using top government data that comes to conclusions not in line with the panic narrative is taken down.

How outrageous can it get?

We now apparently can't debate draconian measures by governments to lock us down.

Stay six feet away from each other and just smile at each other, no talking about substance!

The author of the essay admits in the paper that he is not an expert in the field:
You may ask yourself. Who is this guy? Who is this author? I’m a nobody. That is also the point. The average American feels utterly powerless right now. I’m an individual American who sees his community and loved ones being decimated without given a choice, without empathy, and while the media cheers on with high ratings.
All he does is make a reasoned case.

It should be debated, not banned.

Heroically, Zero Hegde has reposted the piece here.

Again, I don't think the paper is perfect but there is a lot right about the paper, points that just aren't being made by mainstream media.
