Since February of 2020, I have been an avid watcher of a channel on YouTube called “Peak Prosperity“. Dr. Chris Martenson has been a tremendous source of information and perspective on much that has gone on since the very beginning of the pandemic. He’s literally been correct over 95% of the time on what actions the government would take, the reasons behind the official medical advice from the government, and in analyzing highly technical medical papers on the disease and treatment. While he hasn’t been my sole source of info over the last 21 months, he’s consistently more correct, thoughtful and informed than any other.
In a recent post to the Peak Prosperity channel, Dr. Chris Martenson goes over some hard data. A paper (PDF) out of Stanford University shows the odds of surviving a COVID19 infection by age in a number of countries:
As a 50yo guy, assuming I’m otherwise healthy, there’s a 99.73% of me surviving a case of COVID19. Why are we locking down, requiring masks, requiring vaccinations, or doing ANYTHING about COVID19? If anything, this should be a subject discussed between individuals and their doctors. This should not be a national emergency.
My odds of dying is less than if I’m out riding my motorcycle. LOL This is a joke. WHY ARE WE SO SCARED?!? There’s something else going on here. I have a number of theories, a few being farfetched but entertaining, on why this is going on. Much of it has little to do with an actual health emergency. There are other issues at play here that are more economic and geopolitical in nature.
