Der Chef von RTL-West:

03.03.2021 tags [ wisdom | anger | confusion ]

SWR-Intendant Kai Gniffke erklärte ganz offen, dass massive Kritiker der offiziellen Politik bei ihm keinen Platz haben. Eine ebenso bemerkenswerte wie ungeheuerliche Offenheit. Doch ein Mann hält dagegen: Der Chef von RTL-West.... »»

„Es reicht. Es ist höchste Zeit für Vernunft. Für Augenmaß, für Verhältnismäßigkeit. Kurz: für gesunden Menschenverstand. Stattdessen: Masken auf der Promenade, Stehenbleiben verboten, Freunde treffen unerwünscht, auch zu Hause.

Überwachung per Hubschrauber und Park-Patrouille und Jagd auf Jugendliche, die sich umarmen.

Wie weit sind wir nur gekommen? Warum haben sich Politik und Verwaltung so verirrt? Verirrt ins Dunkle.

Der Weg ist falsch.

Freiheit oder Sicherheit heißt es, aber: stimmt das?

„Wer grundlegende Freiheiten aufgibt, um sich ein wenig vorübergehende Sicherheit zu kaufen, verdient weder Freiheit noch Sicherheit.“ Das ist nicht von mir, das ist von Benjamin Franklin, einer der Gründerväter Amerikas. Einer, der für Freiheit eintrat und für Zusammenhalt. Einer, der an das Gute im Menschen glaubte.

Auch ich glaube an das Gute im Menschen.

Ich glaube, dass Politik und Verwaltung uns schützen wollen. Sie meinen es gut, aber machen es schlecht.

Die Nerven liegen blank. Zeit, umzudenken. 100 Prozent Schutz wird es nicht geben – niemals.

Ja, Leben ist das höchste Gut. Aber es reicht nicht einfach nur zu überleben. Man muss auch wissen, wofür man lebt.

Lasst uns lernen, mit dem Virus zu leben, gemeinsam, miteinander, in Freiheit, Gelassenheit und Würde.

Es ist höchste Zeit.“

The Great Barrington Declaration

16.10.2020 tags [ wisdom | anger | confusion ]

a petition already signed by 7.500 scientists, 17.500 medical doctors and practitioners as well as 270.000 concerned citizens... »»

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection. 

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health. The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice. 

Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.

Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. 

As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e.  the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity. 

The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection. 

Adopting measures to protect the vulnerable should be the central aim of public health responses to COVID-19. By way of example, nursing homes should use staff with acquired immunity and perform frequent PCR testing of other staff and all visitors. Staff rotation should be minimized. Retired people living at home should have groceries and other essentials delivered to their home. When possible, they should meet family members outside rather than inside. A comprehensive and detailed list of measures, including approaches to multi-generational households, can be implemented, and is well within the scope and capability of public health professionals. 

Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.

On October 4, 2020, this declaration was authored and signed in Great Barrington, United States.

18,400,000,000 $US bonuses

28.04.2019 tags [ madness | anger | confusion ]

This money was given out to an approx. 150.000 bank managers and traders... »»

According to the N.Y.Times, the bankers who basically initiated the financial crises ... even though it's you and me, or maybe not particularly you or me ... but the greed of all of us ... well, anyhow, these guys earned bonuses of 18.4 Billion $US in 2008, the year with tremendous losses for many people - and, taking in account what can be expected for this year, for much more damage and financial struggle to many more, more.

This money was given out to an approx. 150.000 bank managers and traders, according to Spiegel online, which divides down to about 122,000 $ per head. Great. 122,000 $ per year means 10,000 per month - average! bonus! - on top of a salery! Wow!

I have the impression, that by now, if a newspaper or magazine mentions an amount with just a 2-digit Billion number, we over-read it already... it needs at least 3 digits to get us stunning, isn't it? Oh, here goes the Citigroup with another xx Billions, ups, Funny Mae, Mac my ass...

Okay, if we look a little bit into it, we have to admit, that without our every one's greed, there wasn't a chance to install a system like this: banks lending out billions and billions and then selling the debt wrapped up in non-transparent packages, so they can lend more billions ... without need for accordingly more funds to cover all this up. And all of this is just possible, because all of us (not all, but many) try to get a share of it, try to make some profit on it...

More, more, more ... profit, profit, profit... greed, greed, greeeeed.....

This helped "these guys" a lot to achieve what they have achieved. So, now we lost a good amount of money. Many jobs are gone and will be gone (forever). Many lives put to struggle. We lost. Some didn't.

And here we go, come our politicians and tell us: We have to help these banks, restore trust (what?? - ah, between banks), we cannot let the economy down. Have to save jobs (car industry), have to "help out" ... for sure just temporarily ... to get back on our feet.

So, after we lost a good amount of money in shares, and some people pulled out of it or are simply out of money, now they use the tax money. All these billions which go into "the economy" come from tax payers, or better, the interest for all this money given out to thugs who ripped us off through all these years, has to be paid with tax payers money. Bye bye education. Bye bye social and health care. Bye bye fairness (did it ever exist?). Bye bye better live...

One can go on and on. It's so ridiculous! If you look at it with some distance, it's unbelievable, truly unbelievable!

But even more shocking is that no one is revolting. No one's crying out loud! No one's crying foul! There are no voices to be heard. No blockades, no demonstrations, No governments replaced, very few managers fired, no public disobedience, no economy related terrorist attacks!

We keep on watching TV. We keep on trusting those guys who put us into this mess to handle the getting out. We keep on getting fat, being bored, getting brain washed every day ... every day!

Well, I can't help you!
But I can stop: trusting, listening, buying things I don't need, supporting "those leaders", believing their words, supporting their reckless blood sucking strategies!
