One of the most confusing issues with the pandemic and the medical community response is that many government and medical authorities promoted vaccinations instead of alternative treatments. Ivermectin was discounted, despite physicians having success in using it as a COVID-19 treatment. Hydroxychloroquine was discounted, despite physicians having success in using it as a COVID-19 treatment. Natural immunity was discounted, despite evidence showing it is up to the task of combatting COVID-19. So why were all of these alternate treatments discouraged by officials and the media? Is it because vaccines are the only solution? Is it revenue-driven? Or is it something else?
Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, author of the Popular Rationalism newsletter and founder of the Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge, and Dr. Jill Vecchio join Kim to discuss why vaccine mandates were encouraged and alternate treatments were discouraged.
