advocating for evidence based SCIENCe

OPTIMIST advocates for "following the science" rather than the practice of  “trusting scientific experts” and not being allowed to question their interpretations of the data, or even see the data.

The Deadly Rise of Scientism

One of the greatest challenges each society faces is deciding what constitutes “truth.” Whoever holds that power wields enormous influence and steers the direction of the society for better or for worse.

For centuries, “truth” was delegated to the ruling institutions of the time, and hence truth was simply the narrative which conformed to their interests.

 

Then, during the enlightenment period a new idea emerged—that truth could somehow be determined empirically through experimentation and data.

 

This in turn gave birth to the scientific method and scientific revolution, and while not perfect, was a step up from what happened before. Sadly however, the tendency of ruling interests to want to monopolize the truth never went away and we’ve watched a curious phenomenon emerge where science  has gradually transformed into something not that different from a state religion.

 

As a result, science has now become more and more the practice of “trusting scientific experts”, (many of whom are not in clinical practice), and making bland statements that the science is "settled" and that the products are "safe and effective". Furthermore independent scientists are not being allowed to see the data or indeed question their interpretations of the data.  .

THE "SCIENCING" OF COVID

If you want to get a better understanding of the actual COVID-19 "science", read the following two papers. The first paper deals with mRNA technology issues that you were not told about - the misclassification of the products, the poor trial designs, the shortened Phase III trials, the early unblinding of the placebo groups, the substandard research practices, the inadequate safety testing, the unsupervised production processes, the lack of informed consent, the official misreporting of trial results, the underreporting of severe harms, the data integrity issues, natural immunity, excess mortality, the conflicts of interest, and the political & financial incentives that compromised public health. The second paper talks about the flawed policy implementation.

ILLUSIORY CONCENSUS

We're increasingly governed, in many areas, by people who present themselves as experts, and whose opinions because of their allegedly greater learning and knowledge preempt public discussion and all possible dissent. This is basically what we mean when we speak of 'technocracy.' The problems with this vision are twofold: First, it's premised on a kind of fabulistic understanding of a unified, oracular Science, which provides always and everywhere unambiguous answers to policy questions. Second, to sustain this fable of Science, it's necessary for the technocrats themselves to present a united front. Dissenting opinions within the technocracy undermine its own mythology and vitiate its political power.” Eugyppius

ACADEMic OBJECTIVITY

Academia is not what it once was - plagued with poor scientific research, publications now heavily funded by corporate interests and biased towards official narratives.
