Australia’s totalitarian pandemic restrictions are the product of flawed computer models used to justify even worse policy-making. US economic lockdowns were based on a totally unreliable computer model. Gov. Jared Polis based Colorado lockdowns on an even worse computer model. Then, the politicians claim credit for saving untold lives (based on nothing) so you can be grateful to them.
How did Australia return full circle to being a prison colony? Blame garbage computer models and power hungry authoritarians who use them to bludgeon a disarmed public. (God save the Queen.) The Austrialian “Doherty” model views the world through a 180-day window. Australian financial entrepeneur and analyst Matt Barrie objects,
“They’ve simply stopped the simulation before the effects of opening up play out. There’s no reason I can think of to cut a model off at 180 days other than to fudge the data.”
The model simply documents assumptions, distorts predictions, and provides policy-makers with a “fog of war” used to justify zero covid policies gone off the rails. The “fog of war” obscures the past (with every variant a “game changer” that resets knowledge to zero) and obscures its predictions (so the model can’t be proven wrong).
US economic lockdowns were based on a totally unreliable computer model. Doctors Fauci and Birx sold lockdowns to the Trump administration based on the UK Imperial College model. The model predicted 2.2 million U.S. deaths without lockdowns. It predicted 500,000 British deaths, reduced 96 percent to 20,000 deaths, two weeks later. Experts who studied it called the model “totally unreliable” and a “buggy mess”.
Gov. Jared Polis based Colorado lockdowns on an even worse computer model. “Colorado’s modelers, led by Dean Jonathan Samet of the Colorado School of Public Health, determined that 2.2 million dead was too low,” notes Colorado engineer and attorney, Karl Dierenbach. Samet’s model assumed a fatality rate double the totally unreliable UK model. Samet’s model “is never wrong — in fact, it’s designed that way,” says Dierenbach. “If it doesn’t rain, the ancient modelers would simply say there weren’t enough sacrifices. Today’s modelers simply say there wasn’t enough social distancing.”
Then, the politicians claim credit for saving untold lives (claims as true as the models). President Trump claimed credit for saving the 2.2 million lives slain by the UK Imperial College model. There’s no point debating the claims because it is now “moot”. (It’s “old news”. Why are you asking about “old news”?) Now, put on your big girl panties, get your booster, mask up, and shut up.
