By Kara Thomas, published 23/8/2023

The government must consider that many prominent journal editors have drawn attention to the pervasive influence of financial conflicts of interest on the reliability of research findings.

As any good criminal knows, possession is nine tenths of the law. The elite win, you lose.

Itís almost boring in repetition, but very predictable.

Is the guff we are getting actually science, or is it 'scientism?. It is the latter, which didn't just threaten us during Covid, but wrecked lives and the economy.

The same scientism is wrecking lives, economies and family budgets by way of climate hysteria, net zero, unreliable energy, and political lunacy.

I don't believe that good science threatens public health. Just folk who have SFA scientific knowledge or SFA on a particular discipline, arguing against the established science.

Like, for instance, a geologist arguing against the bulk of the climate (97%) scientists.

And for them the following statement comes to mind, better the world should suspect you're a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Public health would be sorely threatened by a climate change extermination event that included humanity!

Science is not a problem at all, it's senseless people who give scientific qualifications to mutts who can't comprehend sense & then send them out to interfere with normal peoples' lives and/or wreck everything around them. Even more irresponsible bureaudroids hand billions of useful tax Dollars to these mutts to be wasted on ruining society !

A very well written correct article.

over the years Successive Governments handed the running of the National Public Health Authorities like the TGA, FDA, CDC NHS,
to be funded predominantly by Private Enterprise, The BiG Drug companies. Governments did this because testing new drugs and medicines to check they are safe can take years and billions of dollars.

They seemed to have managed to get away with this although cholestrol medications have been seriously questioned by new science and testing.
Which the pharma companies of course do all in their power to call misinformation.

But this Pandemic with the total focus it bought to a new untried vaccine, has totally thrown a light on a massive flaw in the system. The fact, that we no longer have Public Health Authorities who don't have a conflict of interest and whose funding and wages and jobs are dictated by Phizer etc.

The really worrying thing is,governments still aren't investigating
or admitting this is what went wrong in their dictates about the Covid vaccines.And so the Public still have no one looking out for their safety in the form of independent Public oversight Authorities, and doctors not connected to the Pharmaceutical industry.

Drs and specialists working directly with Covid patients who were not paid by the Pharma industry.were vilified by the media and threatened by the government to shut up or lose your license.

Meanwhile Albanese has just tabled a bill in Parliament to allow a govt department to censor so called disinformation instead of fixing the glaring problem in the Public Health System
