  1. YES, yes, and DOUBLE yes! Those were all inconsistencies that made me wonder what was really going on. Also, how about, "It's your duty to risk possible side effects that may even kill you for the good of people you don't know?" I found that very odd too – no time to consider that this drug may harm you in ways worse than the disease could – just hurry up and re-join humanity or be shunned. The entire vibe contradicted everything I knew about common sense. There was a mantra-like repetition that came across as hypnotism. It felt like an agenda was being run, but we weren't supposed to question it.

  2. Covid 19 is the cloak that masks the “great deceit”. The delivery system for the “new normal”. See the powerful maneuvering and throwing the “big fear” about like confetti. They have to maintain fear to enable them to complete their work, let’s face the fear and protect our children…

  3. Interesting and compelling from beginning to end. Far more so than any movie or tv 'entertainment' programme which can be of the same legnth or shorter. I watch you both regularly and you both seem to distil my thoughts regarding covid 19 from a nebulous collection to essential points. My dad, a retired governmental scientific advisor, put me on to both of you. I think for many my journey is a lot like Neil's. Initially knowing something wasn't right, I have a scientific background and was amazed at the lack of quality in the evidence given for the measures imposed. From that point so many other issues have come into it, economics, politics, psychology and sociology. I relished standing alone at work because I knew the truth will out in the end! Listening to people like you kept me from doubting myself.

  4. I hardly ever comment on YouTube – I follow Brett, Heather and Neil. THANK YOU!! There is so much I would like to say, but will leave it at these three things: keep going, you were born for this and finally I will see you both on the other side of this shit show. Outstanding😊.

  5. I really love the environment that this conversation took place. I feel like I’m in the room whilst listening to it. There’s something comforting about it. Well done gentlemen.

  6. The bitter pill is that “they”, the transcendent dimensional forces at work fortifying some of these supposed human animals, could, and that no human or group of humans (evolutionarily-spawned Cabal) could ever collectively and longitudinally sustain the devious plan you refer to.

    The dystopian 20th Century was the horrifying execution of Social Darwinism and its contemporary mechanistic fraudulent backpeddlers like Leakey, Einstein, Hawking, and thousands of others who call opposing viewpoints unfalsifiable and yet claim they are morally superior scientists working in a vacuum of unbiased presuppositionless

    Hunter Gatherer animal….blah blah blah

    Consider “they” are higher functioning simple entities and that they can manipulate complex material beings.

    Conspiracy or unfolding discovery?

    Two old, random, undirected blobs of advanced hominids quietly claiming sincere optimism and care for future generations . Huh?

    Now they say the irreducibly complex nature of being is a miracle of random undirected occurrences. LOL.

  7. IOW, it seems that the same ideological disaster (social Darwinism) proponents that created the most violent century in the history of the world get to claim to be the victims of their own disproven false belief system and that they care to fix it for future undirected and random generations of purely materialistic apparitions. Collective moral generosity would be anti-evolutionary and places a religious faith in projective genetic survivability. You want your random undirected existential nihilism and your transcendent feelings cake too?

  8. What really struck me was the almost instantaneous establishment of Zoom in the beginning of the pandemic. Almost overnight, everyone was suddenly not only using, and promoting, but almost rapturing about Zoom as this invaluable tool for communication. Zoom was suddenly used in all sorts of situations; for work, education, after-school activities, consultation, health-care, contact with authorities, and artistic expression such as choir singing, you name it. All had to be done via Zoom. It makes me shudder.

  9. If the end result of spectacular indifference is the same result as the wet work there is a problem. Only one person shut the oven doors but 100 kept the ledger
