@NightwingTRP I know the consensus is different in here, and I won't try to change it, it would be too much work. I'm only raising a warning flag.
Risk taking is based on risk assessment, and the risk with this one is too high. There are already reliable reports for significant long-covid cases, and although scientists are reluctant to speak out openly "not to create panic", you can find reliable sources advising caution.
Waiting for a few months, till you get the vaccine, is the rational option.
@redpillschool Why? Monopoly. That's why.
Though an interesting development was the same morning TalkRadio realised their channel had been removed, they had a Minister on who's basically in the big 3 making all the major decisions at the moment (badly for most things imho)... when asked about big tech censorship and opinions opposing govt and asking questions and forming opinions against govt policy about the virus, he was very clear - these are important questions to ask and we don't believe in censorship. He was obviously completely unaware of what YouTube had done.
More than this, TalkRadio as a national broadcaster is regulated by the British QANGO known as OFCOM. YouTube has literally decided their standards are higher than that of a literal industry regulator. Your senators should be taking note. This is the clear proof needed to just remove section 230 protection from YouTube and possibly Google. (Rather than repealing section 230 altogether.) That is an editorial line because simply sticking to legal lines is already covered by OFCOM. YouTube quite literally cannot do more to a British broadcaster than OFCOM can without being a publisher and NOT a platform. Whatever the appropriate legal declaration should be "we've looked at you, you weren't behaving like a platform. You haven't changed when we asked you to. So we're declaring you a publisher. Prepare for the lawsuits."
Unfortunately I don't see the British govt doing anything about this. Expecting conservative politicians to behave like vertebrates is far too much to ask in this day and age. Though a small number of us will do our best to put some pressure where we can. Maybe a few of the smarter folks on the same side of the argument as me will be able to get some kind of reaction. The FSU over here has been having some great successes, so all hope is not yet lost.
I'm not able to put together what's really going on over here. Apparently 4 out 5 Brits support these lockdowns yet across all my social circles I still have not met anyone who supports this nonsense. The natural conclusion is that if the polling organisations are compromised (as opposed to simply getting things wrong, not factoring important things in etc) then where do we go from here? I don't have the time to learn more stats and set up a polling company to combat this shit lol.Read More
