This was my favourite part

According to the study, the results suggested that YouTube comments sections could function as "under-regulated epistemic spaces" in which conspiracy theories could flourish.


Because general dialogue, discussion and speech from the public obviously needs to be "more regulated" in response. Got anything to say that might go against the approved narrative? That needs regulation.
Sounds more and more like the Chinese Communist party every day.

Nah let’s discard what medical professionals have to say in favour of the YouTube comments section……. /s

Either way the war was fought and won, the anti vaxxer/Covid Hoax movement has pretty much died in the backside, and the world has moved on. Only the crazies still harp on about it.

The problem is these people are advocating to make that choice for them - not allow them to make that determination themselves.

You defeat bad ideas and mistruths by discussion and education of facts - not by censoring what people can and can't say. The only people seeking to stop speech are the ones that have something to hide, or don't have objective truth on their side.

On the contrary it’s been proven that misinformation can be lethal. The average Joe doesn’t have the knowledge to interpret what is right or wrong, and can easily fall for disinformation if it is persuasive enough.

Some people refer to the above as Darwin's Theory of Evolution or, more accurately, Natural Selection, at work. The Flynn Effect is over, IQs are declining and doing the thinking for everyone (aka nannyism) is partly to blame. The left would have you believe this is all a good thing but then wonder why idiots get hurt.

Like you? You seem particularly drawn to this topic, again and again. You seem to have something to prove and convince everyone (or possibly yourself) of. Buyer's remorse?

I see - and who gets to make the decision who the "average joe" is then? Who gets to decide who's permitted to speak and who's not then? Who decides what is permitted to be spoken?
This leads only to one place = the State knows what's best for you, you'll shut up and comply

The data tends not to support that notion. Singapore, often recognised as the Nanny-state, has one of the highest national average IQs. Same same with Finland and Germany - routinely ranked high as Nanny-states also rank highly on national average IQs.

and to counter Rataxes, Singapore is most definitely a right wing authoritarian country.

Good to see this thread resuscitated in memory of our multi-personality contributor BNEA320. He is still around posting on other boards with yet more pseudonyms.

Oh, I think there’s a bit more to happen yet. For one, the upcoming litigation is still in the evidence gathering phase..


Lets have a look-see at what some of the so-called experts had to say. From two years ago, epidemiologist Raina Macintyre talks on TV and exposes her incompetence:

Sorry Binghi - you've been determined to be an average-joe, and therefore lack the knowledge to determine whether she was right or wrong. Please regulate your speech to stop spreading misinformation

Whats the background of a currently officially Australian accredited journalist got to do with the interview of the chap that were assaulted by the Police ?
