I tried to give that video he linked to a fair chance. 4 minutes in the lawyer says "The allegedly new and highly dangerous coronavirus has not caused any excess mortality anywhere in the world." It's like flat earthers all over again.

so disinfo is preempting the excess mortalty argument now. excess mortality is the exact thing that confirms the death toll and utterly disproves the nonsense about artificially inflated death tolls. excess mortality is comparison of total deaths versus the same time of year in previous years. of course, the difference this year matches the covid death toll closely.

Facts don't matter to conspiracy theorists. It's like water rolling off a duck's back, just gets completely ignored. They start with their conclusion then cherry pick things that support the conclusion. They don't try to falsify their claims. It's basically faith.

Had this issue on another forum. Guy who runs the forum is convinced that Covid doesn't get transmitted in the air thus masks are useless. Thinks it's all transmitted via fecal -> oral transmission. Has a theory that all of spread at the Rose Garden ceremony for the US supreme court nominee was a Democratic plot where they tainted the food being served to all of the Republicans. They were outdoors and you can't transmit it outdoors so that's impossible so it must be the food! Someone pointed out, three times, "Here's pictures of the indoor reception." Guy with the poo poo theory did not respond to any of those comments. Just refused to acknowledge that people were indoors in close contact and spreading it. Nope! Gotta be a CONSPIRACY!

Anyway... Didn't mean to make this another Covid thread. I dropped out of the main Covid thread a while back because at this point it just seems like it's a political allegience at this point if you "believe" in epidemiological facts or not. But since RDJ linked this latest SoundCloud track to a YT vid about it it seems topical.

He continued that same passage and said that deaths were basically connected to corona measures. No logical contradiction (not interested to watch it all). I'm on your side, but when you dismiss people's argument at first opportunity, it gives off heavily biased vibe. And in the next post you immediately go "facts don't matter, i know this crazy dude"... (strawman) Fair chance my ass

Same argument as above absorbes the charts, excess deaths due to measures (no regular medical care etc.). You fight the most easily defeated point like it shows anything

USA excess mortality shows around 200,000 deaths in excess of average, which matches the coronavirus death toll. are you saying that, actually, 200,000 people have not died of covid, but have died of precautionary measures?

My second paragraph was an anecdote, not a strawman. I was drawing a parallel to arguing over similar points where a conclusion is made then evidence contrary to that conclusion is ignored. You can just ignore the second paragraph if it distresses you, it is not relevant to my argument.

My argument is that COVID-19 has caused excess mortality over the past year. I'm willing to look at evidence that will falisify by argument if you have any. That video is bunk.

Can somebody please explain, in a nutshell, what's going on with Richard and conspiracy stories, I only seem to get random fragments of info here on watmm. Has he fallen down the Conspiracy Theorist rabbit hole?

nothing is 'going on' per se, just him dropping links and fragments of info in comments every once in a while, ranging from corona-skeptical to a bit nutter (there was a bill gates conspiracy vid that really made me smh..).  but its often been a minor topic in his interviews and such in the past (the noyzelab one mentioned chemtrails iirc?)

thank you markedone, yes I remember the tangent of chemtrails in the noyzelab interview

I know a few folks who have in the last few years been on a Conspiracy Theory slippery slope, it's apparently a common occurrence nowadays. Of course if you were doing a balancing act in your mind with all of that before corona? Your mental equilibrium has now taken a right battering. From which there is no escape! Apart from JESUS!!!

(last sentence is me joking.....)

Yeah, it seems to be relatively low level COVID questioning, linking to vids etc.

Nothing wrong with asking questions, especially given the amount of disinformation out there. Still, it's a bit of a kick in the teeth, and some of it just plain insulting, to those of us who are fans of his music and have been working in this shit since the start of this year.

It would be true to say, most people I know who have been toking heavily for 20 years do seem very invested in the conspiracy theory stuff. I noticed this about 5 years ago happening to friends and folks I know. All of a similar age bracket and all were the types who would have green almost as soon as they got out of bed.

maybe because the whole tabu around weed is a conspiracy in itself? let's face it, strings are pulled behind the curtains all of the time, not in a conspiratory manner, but to an extent where it severely affects people's lives. *got oil?* and like dcsux said, nothing wrong with asking questions, but what seems to get most people riled up - besides the blatant tinfoil hatters - is the realization that maybe something as big and damaging as this year-long (and counting) crisis may be an effect of string-pulling

There is no question that there are people who will be looking to profit from this situation.

There is also no question to me that the actions of some of those in power (particularly in the US) are dubious, and most likely self-serving.

To extrapolate that to the nth degree , and come to the conclusion that the whole thing is faked, and is a conspiracy is paranoid nonsense, and could only be made by an armchair commentator who has gone deep on sketchy youtube videos and now believes to be able to see behind the curtain.

It would never be the opinion of anyone who has spent any time in a hospital during the peak of this crisis.

He's clarified a bit on his soundcloud.

Doesn't think it's a hoax. Concerned about the government using it to push through actions to further deprive civil liberties (and that I can definitely agree with).

Pleased with that. Nice one Rich 👍
