Who is responsible for unethical behavioural ‘nudges’? Not the SPI-B, claims their co-chair

Not the SPI-B, claims their co-chair

As described in a previous HART bulletin, there has been a pervasive reluctance for the powers-that-be to discuss the questionable ethics of the covert behavioural-science techniques used by the Government throughout the covid-19 messaging campaign.

UK Crony Capitalism: The tests were never used

Tuesday, 3 May 2022 — The Goodlaw Project

Civil servants described the Government’s shambolic testing programme as “unlegit” and “no way to do business”, in new internal emails we can publish today.

The emails were uncovered in the course of our legal action over the award of multimillion pound testing contracts to Abingdon Health during the pandemic, which has reached the High Court this week.

Care homes and COVID19

Sunday 1 May 2022 — Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

[Lessons must be learned]

I love the phrase ‘lessons need to be learned’. It always makes me laugh when I hear it. Usually intoned with a voice of great seriousness by the leaders of an organisation found to have made disastrous errors. It is right up there with ‘safety is our number one priority.’ About the only group I have yet to hear say this are arms manufacturers. Although I wouldn’t put it past them. Maybe … ‘You could take someone’s eye out with that.

An Autopsy: How the Organized Left Got Covid Wrong, Learned to Love Lockdowns and Lost its Mind

Friday, 1 April 2022 — Internationalist 360°

Christian Parenti 

It is hard to destroy your own cause and feel righteous while doing so, yet the American left has done it. After more than two centuries at the vanguard of the struggle for freedom, the American left, broadly defined, executed a volte face and embraced anti-working-class policies marketed as purely technical public health measures.

States of Emergency: Keeping the Global Populations in Check

Friday, 18 March, 2022 — Edward Curtin

A Review

By Edward Curtin

This book is a brilliant and comprehensive analysis of the Covid-19 crisis and the worldwide states of siege instituted under its cover.  Reading it, one cannot help but shake one’s head in outrage at the long-planned nature of the wealthy global elite’s seizure of power under the guise of a germ emergency and the revolutionary crisis it has created.

UK Gov’t to make some “Covid Laws” permanent

Monday, 28 February 2022 — Off Guardian

Kit Knightly

Legislation aims to make “digital courtroom” a permanent fixture of UK justice.

Some of the UK’s “temporary” measures intended to help “deal with the pandemic” are going to be added to future legislation and made permament laws by the spring of this year.

Of course, the truth is that many of the “temporary” Covid measures were already permanent.

A few thoughts on COVID19 vaccination

Wednesday, 23 February 2022 — Dr Malcolm Kendrick

The first thing I want to say here is that there should be nothing in science that is beyond analysis and potential criticism. Because, once this happens, we can find ourselves in a very dangerous situation indeed. A place of unquestioned acceptance of the accepted narrative, with criticism enforced by the authorities.

The Maoist ‘Exceptionalism’ at the Heart of China’s COVID Strategy

Sunday, 20 February 2022 —MROnline

| China Covid | MR Online

by Daniel Alan Bey

Arguably the best known contemporary proponent of Chinese exceptionalism in the English-language is Martin Jacques, best known for his 2009 bestseller When China Rules the World, a tour-de-force in the repackaging of orientalist tropes for the 21st-century. By framing China as a historically and culturally unique “civilisational-state,” Jacques has spent the past decade or so reinforcing the idea that China is so radically different from most other entities in world history that the only possible way to possibly understand it is through an unabashed cultural relativism. This has lead him to conclude that China’s ability to successfully stamp out successive outbreaks of COVID-19 has been due to its cultural superiority, more specifically its Confucian traditions.

From Wuhan to Ottawa

Canadian “Freedom Convoy” in Ottawa (Shropshire)

The latest medical and political coronavirus developments.

Lockdowns in retrospect

A recent preprint meta-analysis by researchers from Denmark (Center for Political Studies), Sweden (Lund University) and the US (Johns Hopkins University) found that lockdowns in the spring of 2020 had no significant impact on mortality. Moreover, the authors highlight that the many “simulation studies” that claimed otherwise essentially presupposed that the entire decline in infections had been due to “measures”, when in reality the decline had been a natural phenomenon. This discrepancy was first shown by a French researcher (see this interview).

New Zealand Has Self-Interested Reasons for Maligning Anti-Mandate Protests

Monday, 14 February 2022 — Global Research

Average folks in many Western countries are increasingly rising up against what they sincerely regard as anti-scientific mandates being imposed upon the population for political reasons related to unprecedentedly strengthening the state’s power over its citizenry in violation of their constitutionally enshrined rights.

The Great Covid Class War

The pandemic has created the perfect pretext for enacting economically destructive policies.

On January 19, 2020, Washington state reported the first US case of coronavirus. By the end of March, 245 million Americans were under stay-at-home restrictions to “flatten the curve.” Mainstream news terrorized the public with exponential graphs, threats of a medical supply shortage, and displays of hygiene theater. Appeals to science were weaponized to enforce conformity, and the media portrayed anti-lockdown protesters as backwardsastroturfed white nationalists bent on endangering the public.

Some observations on the infection fatality rate of COVID19

Thursday, 10 February 2022 — Dr Malcolm Kendrick

by Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

Some observations on the infection fatality rate of COVID19
[Mainly that it does not really exist]

When COVID struck the world two years ago, or thereabouts, the first thing that happened was rather unfortunate. Namely, the instant and widespread distortion, nay destruction, of data. This happened so fast that it became almost impossible to know what on earth was going on. Who to believe … what to believe?

The persecution of the unvaccinated

Wednesday, 9 February 2022 — HART

Are the behavioural science ‘nudgers’ culpable?

Established western democracies are hosting the overt expression of hate – in words and deeds – directed at a minority outgroup, the likes of which have not been observed for almost a century. The victims of this onslaught are those people who have made the decision not to accept the offer of a Covid-19 gene-based ‘vaccine’. How much responsibility do the Government’s behavioural scientists carry for this vilification of the unvaccinated?

Don’t just do something, stand there!

[I missed this one from Dr Kendrick because WordPress is so awful that it keeps turning off the delivery of essays to me!]

A few months ago, I resolved not to write anything more about COVID19. I was having zero apparent effect on anything, or anybody, and I was just getting increasingly despondent at the destruction of science, debate, logic, humanity, personal freedoms … life.

Attack of the Transphobic Putin-Nazi Truckers!

Friday, 4 February 2022 – The Consent Factory

They rolled up on Ottawa’s Parliament Hill like one of the plagues in the Book of Revelations, honking their infernal air horns, the grills of their tractors grinning demonically, the sides of their dry vans painted with blasphemies like “FREEDOM TO CHOOSE,” “MANDATE FREEDOM,” “NO VACCINE MANDATES,” and “UNITED AGAINST TYRANNY.”

As Workers Resist, the Left Recoils

Sunday, 30 January, 2022 — the bellows

That recent working class anti-vaccine mandate protests have been met with either silence or derision from the Left speaks volumes about their allegiances.

If you consider yourself on the political Left, you might be forgiven for not knowing very much about the many acts of worker resistance against the COVID-19 vaccination mandates that have taken place all around the world over the last year. This is because the professional Left media and activist class—while happy to cover traditional strike action over union contract disputes, such as with last year’s John Deere Company and the more recent Kroger strike in the United States—have completely ignored comparable labor struggles undertaken by working people over an issue which defies contemporary cultural associations; leaping over most racial, gender, and social divisions.
