The internet has made us all far more prone to research than ever before. We were the generations primed one the Dewey Decimal system, and who had to learn “boolean” search language once we reached the cusp of the new millennium. The internet has turned us all into detectives, to put it lightly.
This isn’t necessarily good news for big corporations or governments, however, as they’ve grown accustomed to hiding their dirty little secrets from the unsuspecting masses.
Now, as conspiracy theorists continue to lament over whatever they think is “really going on” with coronavirus, they believe that they may have uncovered some sort of strange confluence between the US government’s official story on coronavirus and censorship being undertaken by YouTube.
YouTube has taken down a video of two doctors from Bakersfield, California, who held a press conference calling for the reopening of the country. According to the Google-owned video platform, the doctors “violated community guidelines.”
The doctors, Dan Erickson and Artin Massihi, operate out of an urgent care clinic in Bakersfield. Citing fatality statistics in California, the doctors argued that the Chinese virus has proven less deadly than anticipated.
“We have 39.5 million people, if we just take a basic calculation and extrapolate that out, that equates to about 4.7 million cases throughout the state of California,” said Dr. Erickson. “Which means this thing is widespread, that’s the good news. We’ve seen 1,227 deaths in the state of California with a possible incidents or prevalence of 4.7 million. That means you have a 0.03 chance of dying from COVID-19 in the state of California.”
The doctors made their case in a 50-minute press conference, which was uploaded to YouTube. The Google-owned video platform has since taken the video down, replacing it with a message stating that the content violated its community guidelines.
Somehow, we’ve allowed the Americans technocracy to usurp our freedom of speech, and there is no telling just how much more of it we can take before we give us the idea that America is the freest nation in the world.
