Dr Jay Bhattacharya makes a lot of sense to me.

No, I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I simply call out the way most governments worldwide have reacted and flip-flopped where the current craze, and, perhaps, jaded weariness, with SARS-Cov-2 (COVID 19) is concerned. I recall my own nation’s full-throttle rush to invite investors in with low to no taxes and an eager, industrious, low-cost labour force. We’ve moved on to services since then, of course, and now look with great disdain upon the goodness of hard manual labour coupled with lots of skull sweat (also known as “farming” in faraway isolated spots on the globe today). The highly successful “Stop at 2” campaign, the effects of which we are still feeling today, when we ignored the maxim that it is not numbers or the lack thereof, but rather, human capital development. As an aside, my own father was fined for daring to have my younger brother in those days. We strove to emulate everything Japanese, then Western Capitalism, and seem to be emulating quietly everything Chinese now. We grab frantically at straws like “hawker centre culture” in order to put up a front of a genuine value-creating society. I’ve been asking “Who’s paying Singapore for what?” for a long time now, and the silence has been greatly unnerving, to me at least. How I wish we would expand on our “surgical strike” responses to issues and focus more on Human Capital. How I wish we would conduct Cost-Benefit Analyses with a greater degree of commitment to Human Capital Development.

Enter Dr Jay Bhattacharya, one of the three signatories of the Great Barrington Declaration. I’m embedding some of the videos I’ve seen with him in it. My main takeaways are:

  • Why are we forcing vaccinations, lockdowns and mask mandates on people?
  • Why is seroprevalence being ignored?
  • When will we emphasize compassion over mere empathy?

I trust you will enjoy these videos. Let me know what you think!
