The media is still reporting that the number of people infected with coronavirus is increasing, that there is a third wave, and that it’s bad. Perhaps people have taken this seriously and are continuing to wear masks, practice the Three C’s, and voluntarily avoid doing any kind of social activities.
Well, people are just relaxing, and drinking parties are starting to resume, but then the third wave hits, and the media is screaming about the need for more self-restraint.
But, first of all, it is a lie to say that a PCR positive person is an infected person. In short, PCR amplifies tens of thousands of times the small amount of genes that cannot be examined normally (Ct value), but if the amplification is increased, it reacts with all kinds of things like coronaviruses and they all become positive. This is a far from real “infection,” where the coronavirus multiplies in the cell and releases a large amount of virus. This is why Kary Mullis, the inventor of PCR test, says that PCR cannot be used for diagnosis of infection.
Professor Emeritus Ohashi of the University of Tokushima has been talking about this area, but the so-called experts and the media never mention it and keep saying that coronavirus infection is increasing. I wonder why. And the number of deaths from coronavirus infection is less than 2,000, but they don’t mention that.
Well, I’m mask-free and OK with Three C’s, so my life won’t be any different, but since the venues for workshops and lectures only allow half the capacity, I’ll have to secure a room with double the capacity, and the cost of that room will also double. When 10,000 becomes 20,000, it’s a pain.
Well, it’s not a big deal to say that the cost of a room hurts, but it’s a matter of life and death for people whose stores have gone out of business or who have been laid off from their companies. The number of suicides is increasing, especially among young women. The burden is going to be placed on the more vulnerable.
The people who are creating the corona mess don’t care who dies, and they may be planning to wipe out the small and medium-sized businesses to increase the number of workers who can be used at even lower wages, while at the same time increasing the profits of the upper class citizens by bringing all the companies under the umbrella of the big players. Maybe it’s called the Great Reset. I don’t want to say that media followers will soon be in the grave, but those who just believe in the media and don’t think for themselves will be in big trouble… I hope my fears are unfounded. I really think this is not the time to wear a mask.
Yesterday, I gave my annual talk on “Gender and Welfare” at a childcare vocational school. I was late in arriving and printing the materials I brought with me, so I had to give a 90-minute lecture without any materials. Well, I had all the material in my head, or rather, the words came from somewhere in my head, so I didn’t have any trouble talking, but I did forget to say some things. I was a little disappointed.
After that chat, I went straight to the Dawn Center in Osaka, just in time to catch the 7pm work session. We chatted about everything from media issues to conspiracy theories, and then did some workshop on media literacy. We had 11 participants, including some via Skype. It was a big room, but I was able to avoid a deficit.
