Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.
We are now caught in a vise-grip of ever-tightening social controls, where businesses express plausible deniability* of their independence from governmental and quasi-governmental entities.
It’s part and parcel of a chilling trend that looks decent hard-working people out of a decent life, where incompetent government is the problem, and public officials feel at ease lying to the public and to Congress.
What could go wrong?

YouTube has introduced a new “medical misinformation policy” that will censor any medical or health-related content that doesn't align with claims made by the World Health Organization (WHO).
...YouTube stated that the policy could be arbitrarily enforced, as it “may not cover” all guidance from the WHO or LHAs related to “specific health conditions and substances.”
WIND: with WHO and every governmental authority having been proven sources of disinformation and psyops about COVID, what could go wrong?
This isn’t just about COVID, it is all about all medical matters including nutrition. And self censorship is even more insidious than overt censorship. This sort of policy for climate change questions is probably next.
It is a “free pass” to censor any content involving any disease or condition or nutrition or health consideration whatsoever (exercise?!), a license to shut down any voice that the YouTube thugs want to silence. Including from local health authorities (LHA’s). That would include the nut job totalitarian types over here in the SF Bay Area, for example.
The only way for the WHO to gain back a small amount of credibility would be to immediately repudiate this policy and demand that YouTube reverse itself.
YouTube is not safe for business. Say the wrong thing, and bye-bye to your business.
Science is dead. It is already riddled with corruption and follow the money dishonesty, but when debate is also stifled, it’s game-over. When no debate can occur on what is arguably the most important worldwide platform for sharing ideas, we’re all screwed.
