Episode #23 – In Episode 23 of Culture Shift, Barry Farah’s takes a look at a recent report from the CDC with an explicit data-based admission that the campaign to control people was not that effective. In fact, the mask mandates did little to impact the COVID death rate. Rather, a much-ignored factor in the worldwide death rate recently saw the light of day, and that is the connection between obesity and mortality. Barry Farah quotes the CDC itself as he shines a spotlight on the failure of masks and other hyper-controlling mandates that have had little impact on how the pandemic has played out over the last year.
Episode #22 – In this episode, Barry Farah lays out how the government response to COVID over the last year was a “manage to safety” versus a “manage to freedom” approach. He reviews how government-made decisions based on data that didn’t prove true, including preparation of an inordinate number of hospital beds that were never used. He details the silenced but respected scientific voices in regard to lockdowns, school closures and masks, and the suppressed toll taken on the mental and physical health of Americans as a result. Barry Farah spells out what it would look like if the government had informed and warned when it came to COVID versus denying people’s individual liberty, the negative social impact of Stassi-style shaming, blaming over masks and more.
