If ever there was a time for critical thinking it has to be during the events of the Covid-19 pandemic.
There is on-going contest between those reporting the news about Covid-19. Action is now being taken against those publishing news or information that contradicts the ‘official’ message of the UK government. A government that brings other countries to book for their abuse of human rights and censorship are now, because it suits their agenda, doing the very same.
Two things stand out for me that have been reported on government websites that raise questions and deserve critical thinking. Before we get to that here is an explanation of critical thinking: Critical thinking means making reasoned judgments that are logical and well-thought out. It is a way of thinking in which you don’t simply accept all arguments and conclusions you are exposed to but rather have an attitude involving questioning such arguments and conclusions.
UK government report before the lockdown clearly stated Covid-19 was not. a highly infectious disease. Click here to go the official source.
Next turning to the Scottish government, their website reports something chilling when interpreted as deliberately skewing the reporting of Covid-19 deaths. Make your own mind up. Click here to go the official source.
So, you have a positive test for Covid-19. 15 days later you fall down the stairs and die from multiple injuries. Cause of death is? Covid-19. I don’t think so! To add that death to the Covid-19 number of deaths is wrong, misleading and makes you wonder why?
Time for some critical thinking?
