Teaser: This was the title of an article in the British Medical Journal https://www.bmj.com/content/331/7529/1412 back in 2005 – DBC – Days before Covid. The article states: “US data on influenza deaths are a mess. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledges a difference between flu death and flu associated death yet uses the terms interchangeably. Additionally, there are significant statistical incompatibilities between official estimates and national vital statistics data. Compounding these problems is a marketing of fear—a CDC communications strategy in which medical experts “predict dire outcomes” during flu seasons.”
“The CDC website states what has become commonly accepted and widely reported in the lay and scientific press: annually “about 36 000 [Americanshttp://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease.htm">www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease.htm) and “influenza/pneumonia”...
About Richard Pitt
Nomads of the world disunite
Some of these writings have been motivated by the sense of disbelief, shock, indignation, and many other things regarding the state of our world in Covid times. Navigating the many "realities" in the world, including the extraordinary one-sidedness of the corporate media is breathtaking. If ever there was a need to grapple with and understand what is happening to us as a species, this is it. This is a time of reckoning. Maybe our growing disconnection to the planet and to each other has allowed such an event to become what it is with this profound disconnect from the truth. How can we suppress a virus by shutting down the world. It doesn't make sense but in another way it does. Our human civilization has reached a crossroads and we are facing a crisis of confidence. We are facing a profound transition in our societies because of a moral, social, economic, technological and political crisis.
There are those with power and influence seeking to impose their vision onto the world, one where modern technology will be used to control all of humanity. It may be a very dark place if they succeed. Even if we believe things have to change and we can't keep on doing the same thing in the same way, this is not the way to do it. Some people with a lot of money and influence want to recreate the world in their own vision. They have forgotten to ask the rest of us though.
Other writings are a collection of electic pieces during my time living in Africa, India and other places. They are infused by my experience as a practitioner, teacher and author in Homeopathic Medicine and experience living and working for 10 years in Africa, 20 years in the USA, travelling in India and other places and my roots in the UK. Enjoy!
