Yup.I think it's one thing to abide by the laws, take precautions, and still do research and ask questions.
I think that really needs clarification. There is definitely pseudoscience going on, but what exactly they are referring to needs to be identified before it can be validated.I think it's entirely another to call Covid pseudoscience as more than 2M are dead worldwide, call for superspreader events like concerts, while having money be your motivation.
One study found that the number of hospitalizations was about the same as you'd find at a typical NFL game. And then we need to remember the demographics. How many 80+ year olds are going to be attending a live concert? And even if they do go to one, then they know the risk, and taking that risk should be their choice, not the government's ( IMO ).Making an income is good. Making an income that causes others to be killed needlessly isn't so good.
There's quite a few hits when you search it out, but I'm not sure about the depth of content. I'll have a closer look. But in all honesty, I suspect that you and I are probably already more well informed than either of them. I continue to do my part, mainly because I'm in a position where doing so is of very little consequence for me compared to the risks, which in my case are more from enforcement than the virus, that is unless ...I think we would at least agree that his messaging is problematic at best, dangerous at worst. And certainly tone-deaf in the media.
Something that's been of growing concern lately is this issue of the long-haulers. I'd probably survive the virus itself, but the after-effects are actually more worrisome, especially if they are the result of what I suspect they are. At one point I was ready to go and lick somebody's face just to get it over and done with. Now I'm much more reserved and don't want it anywhere near me. Got enough health problems already.
