I do not speak out against vaccines or anyone who takes them. Ditto for mask wearing indoors or out.

My concerns are not specific to any political party, personality or group identity.


Today, bulk medical advice handed down from central authority is promoted as the norm.

Away from the TV, real people set up various relationships with medical professionals.

Some people want to get pregnant and have more kids.

Some people want to be well without drugs and surgery.

Some people want to ask their doctor about the latest drug they saw advertised on TV.


I want to know what various people are thinking on various issues.

Today, voices of dissent, and their social media accounts, are suppressed.

This whole structure brings government messages into question.

People who were once neutral on these issues may resist the idea of living in a one size fits all, guilty until proven innocent society.


Before the internet and social media-

If different people selected different churches to attend, or they decided to attend no church at all, was this because of misinformation?

Americans were never meant to agree on matters of a personal nature.


Look for scolding, shaming, guilt tripping, dividing people up into groups, pitting one group against another and a guilty until proven innocent approach in dealing with the next crisis.


Would TV newspeople be willing to interview people from various sides of an issue?

Much of what we get today is sort of a press release style of news reporting where a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest policy update, drug bust/federal grant money award, etc.

Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

Hey, good news-

Grandpa is feeling better now that he has quit smoking.

He is feeling good enough to participate in a TV ad for the meds he took.

When you go to stay with Grandpa this summer, just know that he may be experiencing:

“Hostility, agitation, depressed mood, and suicidal thoughts or actions”

Another TV ad:

0:24 May increase the chance of heart attack or stroke which can lead to death.

0:44 Bleeding and ulcers which can occur without warning and may cause death.

1:14 For certain patients, the benefits outweigh the risks, but only you and your doctor can make that decision.
