Ramesh Thakur on Why More Doctors Did Not Question COVID Policies

John Abramson

One of the features of current society is the rise of the professional associations and the regulatory colleges that regulate the people practicing in their professions; accountants, lawyers, and doctors. During the COVID era, these regulatory bodies were very useful for the state and were instrumentalized to ensure compliance. Any doctor who publicly questioned what was being demanded by the public health authorities and the colleges could be disciplined.

Now, in any profession, as a rough and ready calculation, a 10 percent threshold of dissent is very critical. Because once you get to that level, they cannot function if they cancel a full 10 percent, and they also cannot get away by saying, ‘This is a very tiny minority view.’

If the doctors and specialists had been able to speak out, and if that many of them did, they couldn’t cancel them all and they couldn’t get away by insisting that only the cranks and the nutters and the tin foil hatters were the dissidents. … The reason they got away with that is the censorship and shadow-banning and suppression. That’s where the censorship industrial complex comes in, because the doctors who were dissenting didn’t know how many others were speaking out. Then it required much more courage for any individual doctor to put his or her head above the parapet.

— Ramesh Thakur, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General, and emeritus professor in the Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University

  1. The “glorious” Dr. Fauci who never once treated a Covid patient, threatened our doctors with loss of their license if they dared to question or treat their patients with anything other than his ICU playbook or ivermectin/hydroxychloroquine. He is responsible for the deaths of so many. Where is he now??? Teaching at George Washington university.
    Our doctors have lost their integrity and true desire to heal people. Only a few brave ones stood up to the tyranny. Most doctors were compliant due to fear. I have lost respect for medicine in general.

    1. Agree 100%.
      Seems like every profession associated with Healthcare has been compromised.
      Have family that works in Healthcare and doctors are being bribed with bonuses to get their patients to take certain medication. It’s a reward and punishment system now.
