Gaslighting made easy

This is brilliant and hysterically funny! It should be published in the "Idiot's Guide" series :) :)
While I haven't finished reading, what I have read so far perfectly addressed the tools used to make all of this possible. Great job!
My default position on medical research, especially if funded by big pharma, is fraud until proven otherwise.
Excellent! If you control the literati and glitterati, you can fool the masses of illiterati.
The horrible thing is seeing these things actually come to pass...
Ashmedai is so smart and so brilliant, they are no match. They still do control the spread (or reach as Elon says) of information however. The other problem is that lower intellects will not read, nor understand. But it's clearly a war and an dark agenda where the end justifies all means including destroying medicine and science.
Wonderful! Satire can be very effective.
A lot of this is familiar to those of us who follow medical research. Malcolm Kendrick's book Doctoring Data, while not satire, is also very entertaining reading.
Great work and I (was) working on something similar. I agree with Fabian. I'm going to compare with what I have written and see what I have that you don't. In the meantime, this is overwhelming to most readers, but it is a cookbook of examples for those of us that are going around our state to educate people on the excesses of the deep state and pharmas. One or two examples from this would find their way into every lecture of mine. But I will need to contact you for your permission. And the cover's great too. Humor makes the point. Oh, I expect I will be going head to head with our illustrious state health department head and his lackey later this year. I hope I have your examples memorized, categorized, and ready to display as the conversation permits. Tough job. Maybe one a day?
I'm still working my way through this wonderful document, but your mention of Hotez ("he’s a really annoying Regime Celebrity Scientist") in the table of contents elicited my Pavlovian response, which is to offer this comment.
Shamelessly opportunistic and self-serving, this 2018 Hotez article is for those who are scientists in name only. I avoid ad hominem attacks, so I am being perfectly objective when I describe Hotez as "loathsome".
He's obviously still following his own personal marketing plan, with the rumored goal of being named Anthony Fauci's successor as head of NIAID. I just checked, and six months after the departure of Fauci, the agency still only has an "Acting Director", Hugh Auchincloss, M.D.

That would be the Mariana Trench
Glad to have finally read & re-read this.
A very comprehensive deep-dive that goes a long way to clarify a ton of confusion.
I really appreciate the humor making an otherwise dry topic accessible.
Lots to learn from this piece!
Saved and shared. I hope this helps you gain more subscribers because this is a joy to read.
I'm still reading through this gloriously detailed book, but I wanted to comment how much I'm already enjoying it.
This is an incredible piece of work,which will take a while for me to work thru. One clarification, however: The investigation of Dr. Ezike is on almost a technical matter, as her new ($million/yr?) job is with a hospital enterprise which contracts with the State, and she did not wait the prescribed time before taking it. It's very unlikely she'll suffer any consequence. Source: https://www.cbsnews.com/chicago/news/state-launches-investigation-against-former-top-doctor-ngozi-ezike-for-ethics-violations/
Thank you for laying this out in such a detailed and clear way.
It helps relieve some of the cognitive dissonance from living through the last two years.
I watched in horror as they did these things - like changing the definition of “vaccine” and “vaccinated” - and cherry picking data sets, but I lack the expertise to explain it to others.
