Public holidays make for a very chilled vibe. Now the children are ODing on chocolate, I guess it’s one one day when this is par for the course.
Life is filled with many good things which I am so grateful for, still during these times I experience waves of horror almost daily, usually when I lie down at night. These panic attacks stem from a deep feeling of unease, it’s not just all the changes, it’s a profound sense that something is very seriously amiss. I really believe that humans are made with a built in sense which warns us of danger and there are red lights and sirens jangling in my head. I think we all know that we are under threat we’re just interpreting those signals in different ways as we try to make sense of current circumstances and avoid peril.
This week I got an e-mail from Biznews, the cancel killers took down a video which they posted, this is an extract from the mail
“We’ve been inundated with messages from the BizNews community since last night’s removal of actuary Nick Hudson’s presentation to our conference. The explanation from YouTube is the video “is a violation of our Community Guidelines.” (see above)
YouTube’s notice warns if we again violated theit rules again, BizNews TV will be suspended for a week. To avoid disruption to our community (there are 18k subscribers to the BizNews TV YouTube channel) we took down Part 2 of the presentation where Nick engages in a Q&A with conference delegates.
Despite seeing evidence about growing censorship on social media, YouTube’s action did surprise us. First, the video had over 500 000 views since being posted last weekend. Also, thousands of those viewers took time to comment – most giving the thumbs up: 20 000 “likes” outnumbering “dislikes” by 100-1.
We were also comfortable with the veracity of Nick’s information. PANDA, a group of actuaries, financial and medical professionals who question Statist narratives on the pandemic, spent considerable time ahead of the conference double checking the data. Including And “nit picking” by all members of the organisation’s esteemed globally sourced Scientific Advisory Board.
We have no fight with YouTube, which obviously has every right to decide whether to publish (or not) material uploaded to its platform. Also, our understanding is YouTube has a blanket agreement with the World Health Organisation, of which PANDA has been critical, so someone in Geneva probably didn’t like Hudson said.
However, be lieve our community has the right to see all sides of arguments, especially one that has so massively disrupted livelihoods and economies. Others feel the same way and both Parts One and Two have been downloaded by many private citizens and subsequently uploaded to other platforms.
From our side, we’ve also created a BizNews TV channel on Vimeo where you’ll find both videos – here’s the link: https://vimeo.com/user127880409.
The audio-only files are also available on BizNews Radio as per –
Nick Hudson’s keynote presentation:
And Part Two – the Q&A with Nick Hudson:
I watched the Vimeo link and found it very sane and informative, it also gave me a sense of peace that not every one is swallowing the blatant propaganda of these times.
I’m trying to use a daily scripture reading app every day. This week this one stood out : John 13:12-17
So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. ” I have tried to hold this message very close. The song below is one which Domi loved as a child and she was still playing Psalty in her car when we were together in Canada last month.
