In light this piece and many others by gato on the failure of our so-called experts, I thought some here might be interested in my new book, The Treason of the Experts: Covid and the Credentialed Class, just published by Brownstone.

For those wanting to know more about me or the book here are some links:

Forward The Treason of the Experts: Covid and the Credentialed Class. by Jeffrey Tucker:


Author’s Introduction (scroll down after cover page and forward)


Here I am discussing the book recently with Jan Jekielek on the American Thought Leaders program


Here is my personal website


The book is available at:

"Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatsoever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, required only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus."

~ Michael Crichton (1942-2008)

Great to see two members of the subversive seven collaborating! Class traitors will bring sanity back. https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-become-a-class-traitor

Thanks for the cross-post, Gato. Jay and Rav present interesting points, although I do not necessarily agree 100% with them. Like Jay continues to insist that the "vaccines" are beneficial for the elderly.

Apart from that, of course, science should never be about consensus; I had a Chemistry professor in college who would (correctly) say that majorities are very frequently wrong.

On the other hand, we need to be careful with this very prevalent idea that "science constantly changes". Of course, we need to be open to challenging prevailing concepts, but there are solid scientific principles that should not change every day. In reality, we should need some serious scientific evidence to throw away an established scientific principle and substitute it with another. Nowadays, so called "scientists" have become too prone to change "the science" everyday, supposedly supported by a new "study". Then, today coffee is great for you and tomorrow the worst thing you can do is drink coffee... with Covid they threw away every well-established scientific and medical principle... because "the science" changed.

trust the scientific method, not the scientists.

FYI your first post arrived in my inbox just fine and was perfectly readable.

Consensus isn't just "not science", it's *anti-science*. Anyone confused about the scientific method need only watch this one minute - yes, one minute - exposition by the great Richard Feynman, who explains it completely. And, contrary to those who talk about "consensus", anyone can do it. Which is the whole point - the results should be able to be confirmed by anyone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OL6-x0modwY

Fairly simple - get rid of those in the governmental acronym groups that have foisted the nonsense upon us and then be ready to have open discussion of the work that many have done and then read and decide for yourself who makes sense and who is proven right by solid, well planned projects and endpoints with good statistics.

Aaahaa though that is the rub isn’t it?

The statistics from the Pfizer and Moderna, et Al were mangled and falsified so greatly they wanted 75 years to straighten them out or hide them.

Let the real records show whose protocols are having success and you decide without mandates and lockdowns who you want to believe.

The results can’t be any worse even if you have little knowledge of statistics to decide what is correct.

They don’t look right, smell right or they are from big Pharma so your choice will be as good as theirs.

Just remember the ones who gave you the gears the first time and make your list of who to ignore and who knows their ass from a star and then flip the coin.

No great prophecies here just venting for the next round of nonsense that our village idiot will nominate into office or alphabet group.

Then settle in with Substack authors who you have come to trust this past three years and learn how to stay alive and healthy and laugh at the fools who still believe in MSM and BiG Pharma, CDC, FDA, WHO, WEF, oh yes and Bill Gates.

"Everyone in science knows about these problems. But surprisingly few people do anything about it."

I recall a prominent biologist commenting that she is skeptical of any research paper written after 2012 or so, for the reasons given.

Along with destroying businesses, educational setbacks, and food insecurity another effect of the lockdowns are rising rates of housing insecurity and homelessness. Unscrupulous landlords are using the rent moratoriums that occurred as an excuse to raise rents well beyond what is normal and reasonable. This is happening in mobile home communities across the nation as well as in other forms of rental housing. Even those of us who haven't been hit so hard by these increases are worried that we might be next. We have gone from "killing grandma" to "putting grandma out on the street".

...While Dr Tim Morgan of Surplus Energy Economics(*) earnestly urges ↓↓ 🙂

🗨 If you, and others, take one conclusion from this, I would hope it’s this: we don’t need to take anyone’s word for anything, because it’s perfectly possible for us to work things out for ourselves.

In light of the Neil DeGrasse Tyson interviews..my wish is that he would come on their podcast. It won't happen, but it will nonetheless be interesting to hear.

Yes there is history and explanation of that in Stephan Lanka’s ‘Dismantling the virus theory’
