Coronavirus PCR testing probably inaccurate & unreliable - straight out of both sides of the CDC's ...
Hanno comments on Sep 3, 2020:
I still need someone to please help me understand. Since February 2020 I was led to believe that all data indicated that Covid does not kill healthy people and only kills the very old who also have co morbid conditions. I selected my own staff according to these factors who was to be allowed to be essential staff and who was not. Why is the 31/8 CDC report controversial? Does it not confirm what we always understood?

Hanno comments on Sep 2, 2020:
Why is this news? From the very start in February it was clear from Chinese data that it only kill “at risk” people... either very old or have a co-morbidity disease. In NZ we even selected people based on these risk factors on who may be essential workers and who not from March already. I believe the 6% is still too high... that is just the number of cases where the co-morbidity was not known or written on the death certificate. The actual number of “Covid only” deaths are much less.
The Truth about COVID Deaths & Comorbidity The actual CDC revised death percentages reporting ...
Hanno comments on Sep 1, 2020:
Sorry this is rubbish. Everyone has always known that Covid 19 deaths are primarily co-morbid deaths and the ~9800 Covid “only” deaths are most likely also co-morbid deaths... the co-morbid disease was just not recorded or known. The reported Covid-19 deaths always includes cold, flu and pneumonia deaths... this was know from the start and was criticised by everyone. Johns Hopkins reporter it as such since the difficulty in getting a clear answer at the beginning and the likelihood of false negatives with testing. The data reported was always “an upper limit” result. No one dies of AIDS... they die if tuberculosis, pneumonia and even the common cold. However, they would have survived those diseases if they did not had AIDS. So the big Question is how many of the ~180 000 deaths would have survived 2020 if it was not for Covid 19. It is impossible to answer.

What about bought? 95% of Maori land was bought in NZ and 5% taken as punishment. Almost all of the 5% were returned within massive compensation. Yet we have so many that still claim all land is stolen since the British paid a shilling an acre in 1840 and now it is work $100 000 a hectare 2020. Of course in the 1840 it was either swamps or inhabitable mountains at the wrong end of the world. Now it is world class farm land and orchards build with European and Asian technology. Yet the claims of all land stolen does not got away.

Every individual does and needs to have the right to chose how they apply their own potential. 4. Any fair system will always lead to unequal outcomes. A system that attempts to have equitable outcomes necessarily needs to be unfair.

does stuff like this carry any weight at all here? []
Hanno comments on Aug 16, 2020:
If true it carries weight of course. I never saw that before and read the first two fact-checks of Tucker. In both cases the “fact-checker” gets it wrong a bit and right a bit. In both cases they take Tucker either out of context or ignore actual facts. In the first case Tucker did exaggerate, however if you read the intent of Harris at the time, he did not. Harris intent was to discredit Biden and paint him as a sleazy old man. That is what Tucker is pointing out. In the second case, their is of course a tiny risk to students and teachers... it is not zero... however you must be daft to think he said that... their is very little to no additional risk compared to the common cold and flu (who both present similar or higher risk than covid to kids). Tucker was pointing out that schools stay open for colds and flues, however close for Covid which for kids and teachers present no additional risk they don’t already face. I did not look at others ( I have a life ) however it appears it is similar to other “fact-checkers”... only halve true or very vague themselves.

If you are White or Asian, and smart, do universities discriminate against you?
Hanno comments on Aug 13, 2020:
The differences between races are smaller than the differences inside races... In other words... there is bigger variation among white people intelligence... than the differences between white and black intelligence. This applies to all attributes... not just intelligence but athletic ability etc...etc... This is important to understand. You can claim that blackS ran faster that whites on average... however, the differences between Hussain Bolt and the average black is much larger than the difference between the average white and the average black. Hence you can use statistics to claim all kinds of differences between the races, however you cannot use it to justify discrimination on a case by case bases. Therefore, any race based preferential treatment is racist. And projecting the average attribute of a race to individuals are similarly racist.
When I think that way, yeah, it's kinda scary...

Hanno comments on Aug 9, 2020:
And who will decide what is a lie. A good Christian can claim that his god exist. Of course that is not true since gods do not exist. However the Christian did not lie because he honestly believe that and he believes he has evidence for that. So even though he may be wrong, he still did not lie. Now at some point said Christian realise he is wrong, however it has financial advantage to perpetrate the lie... and now he becomes a liar. Now how are YOU going to determine when he went from making an honest mistake to outright lying for his own benefit? Above is just an example... however you can extrapolate that to any believe system or viewpoint... socialism vs capitalism... Gnosticism vs agnosticism... etc etc. Then you also need to address the fact that you lie to others and especially to yourself on a daily basis. So how are we to punish you?

It is very good news, we just don’t know why yet.
Critical Thinking is a skill. Is this YOU?

Jordan Peterson described it very well. It is the ability to argue two opposite view points at the same time while accepting that both could be wrong. What you described is similar to the scientific process... Key is the acceptance that you could be completely wrong and being able to understand the opposing view point to the point that you are able to defend it to some extent. Or at least being able to explain the other viewpoint to someone else. If you cannot do that, how can you argue against that?

Hanno comments on Aug 1, 2020:
It is not true that life has become harder... Life has become easier... when compared with people living 50, 100 and 150 years ago, we love fantastic lives. Our life expectancy is higher than ever before. We suffer less pain, are hungry less often and are warmer and drier. The average person is living a life that only the very rich could dream of 100 years ago. The mistake you make is comparing the average person with the 1%. Your definition of poverty is skewed. If some are disproportionally rich... yes that may be true... however it is the employers who take all the risks, who made all the effort... and it is the employees who just pitch up and demand a Wage. Nothing stops the employee to start his own enterprise.
Conservatives have long been concerned with supposed leftist indoctrination in universities.
Hanno comments on Aug 1, 2020:
I have worked with students in South Africa, across Europe and now also NZ. My experience is exactly the opposite. In South Africa taking the opposite view of what you are trying to prove and attempting to defend it was part of the curriculum in fourth year dissertation preparation. That is all gone now. Considering views that are conservative are not encouraged at all. And what is more, the lecturers themselves are unable to put together conflicting views points. This is a crucial part of the critical thinking process.

Hanno comments on Aug 1, 2020:
This is good example of attempting to group people... No one has an actual issue with real non-violent marches of people who peacefully wants to make their thoughts heard. Everyone should have an issue with violent looters and arsonists who follow them. The far left pretends that only the former is happening and none of the latter. The far right pretends all are the latter. The media is of course the biggest culprits next to politicians who use this for no ones good except their own. Violent people are arrested and immediately they are portrayed as innocent marchers... and thereby they reinforce both the left and right wing grouping.

When we were young students at uni, we were all liberal greenies and then we had to work, had kids, saw how the world actually works... and all became conservatives. The conclusion is that as you mature you become more conservative... we become just like our “dinosaur” parents who knew nothing when we were teenagers. Now we understand that our parents were also little liberals when they were kids... and now we are laughing at our own kids waiting for them to mature as adults and watch them too become conservative with time.
Black Lives Matter (blacklivesmatter.
Hanno comments on Jul 30, 2020:
Jacinda Ardern famously said during the 2016 elections it takes a village to raise a child. It was to promote the fact that some Maori parents simply did not raise their children and that the state will need to do that for them and that we needed state interference via taxpayers so get ready to pay more tax. At the same time Maori culture is sacrosanct and government interferences (where it was actually needed) was portrayed as evil. It is then that you realise Ardern could not care less about the real problem and it was laying the ground work for a totalitarian state. We now see this also happen with central government trying to take over local government control of water. Of course, the majority of Maori are excellent parents as is most NZers. By focusing on the small drug affected fraction she was pushing her communist goals. Again they are also doing that with water which is a big thing in NZ. Happy children growing up in a strong health family does not need the socialism Ardern is selling... so she needs families without fathers to create the children that will accept the “state family” which will allow the totalitarian government they seek.

Why the US has so many Filipino nurses []
Hanno comments on Jul 26, 2020:
We also have large number of Filipino nurses (and engineers and tradesmen etc) in NZ. It is because they are hard working honest and nice people who want to make a better life for themselves and their families and will do it in a legal and useful way. Hence Filipinos are welcome here ... I imagine it is the same reason they are welcomed into the US as well and why there are so many of them.

Hanno comments on Jul 23, 2020:
The main issue here (and it is an issue here in NZ as well and elsewhere)... is that the vast quantities of money spent to uplift the “left behind” has not worked at all. Small number of individuals succeed however the majority gets further behind. The socials architects realise this and now do not just try to uplift the “left behind”, but actively slow down the “getting ahead” in order to reduce inequality. Hence destroying the economy is not all bad... you are making the “ getting ahead” group poorer faster than the “left behind” group. So even if their actions make the “left behind” poorer, it is OK since it still reduces inequality. Whereas a booming economy will always benefit the “getting aheads” more than the “left behinds”, thus increasing inequality even though the “left behinds” are better off.

Is "whiteness" required for a healthy modern society?
Hanno comments on Jul 17, 2020:
Remove the wrong religion subset and you describe all successful cultures all over the world of all races. Why do they post a poster about white people in an African American museum? All it does it shows why some people fail and other succeed. You can study the Maori of NZ and the iwis (tribes) that practiced those exact principles survived and those who did not went extinct... this happened long before white man arrived. Ditto when you study African kingdoms that dominated. It has nothing to do with whiteness. It is simply the way Nature works. White peoples (Europeans, Japanese and Chinese as well as Indians) are just better at doing it as living in harsh cold climates forced those principles into our cultures.

Simple. Don’t tax companies Or businesses at all. You individual tax wealth progressively. Everything is owned by someone. Let people become as rich as they want.

Tax wealth over $100m at 2% pa. Tax wealth over $1000m at 5% pa. Pay everyone a flat UBI of $200 per week. Too little to live a nice live, enough not to starve. You can adjust the number up and down yes, but the principle applies. Apply free market capitalism. The problem will resolve itself.

Freedom has been the foundation of and synonymous with America.
Hanno comments on Jul 12, 2020:
A friend once explained to more eloquently... however I will try to repeat. Rights (freedoms) are like a bag of marbles with only so many in there. Once you have handed them out, you need to take some back to give more to someone else. My right to be gay or abort my baby, removes your right to live in a Christian society ruled by Christian values. Giving woman the right vote, halved my rights as a male voter. Allowing immigrants to move freely removes residents right to associate with whom they want. To protect the rights of everyone we need to remove the rights of criminals. Giving criminals more rights reduces the rights of their victims. Giving someone rights necessarily implies having to take it from someone else.
Can someone explain to me what is in an extreme (because I've seen it not just pertaining to ...

You tell them each time they smoke a cigarette their lungs never fully recover from it. Every time they are exposed to sunlight there skin never fully recover from it. Every time a married couple has a fight, their marriage never fully recover from it. You never fully recover from any injury... or pneumonia. It always leaves scarring that are never as strong as the original tissue.
When is inequality just and fair?
Hanno comments on Jul 11, 2020:
1. The natural world is not fair.. and never will be... else there would never have been extinctions and no animal would eat another. 2. We as humans can attempt to make things fair by ensuring everyone gets an opportunity to be the best human they can be given their genetic potential and the physical world we live in. 3. Every individual does and needs to have the right to chose how they apply their own potential. 4. Any fair system will always lead to unequal outcomes. A system that attempts to have equitable outcomes necessarily needs to be unfair.

I thought you had a constitution that forbids discrimination due to race, sex or creed? In NZ any such rules will have them sued for discrimination. We may only discriminate against ability.
So this is circulating

Hahaha... you mean the tomb no one could find one week after his “resurrection”?

Is my logic sound?
Hanno comments on Jul 9, 2020:
Aquinas has been wrong on all his teachings. God cannot sin: he/she murdered 42 young boys for teasing an old man. And not just murdered... mauled to death by bears. Still have to find an honest person to tell me that was not a sin.
Hanno comments on Jul 9, 2020:
This also apply to the racial diverse history dramas we see today... You know in 950 AD a quarter of the Mercian population was non-white... LOL!
From comments by Michael Holding recently.
Hanno comments on Jul 8, 2020:
So what does he want? To allow people to rob and store owners not to proactively stop it from happening? What non-white achievements are being hidden? By all means teach non-white history. When will he get over it? Never? He lives in a country with black leaders, police, store owners, etc and still be complains? The West Indies has black democracy for decades and still he is oppressed. By whom? That is not useful and it does not offer any solution. What annoys me is how Holding himself is more privileged than many non-blacks. He is tall and athletic and made a good life out of cricket. He ignores the great improvements made the past decades and alienate the very people who wants to help and eradicate the last bits of discrimination. But by saying that he and his race cannot get over it, why should the non-blacks even try? That is the core problem with the BLM. There are no solutions. They do not specify what they want other than the destruction of white peoples achievements and way of life. This is not politics of equality, but of envy.
So let's put this to the test: I believe that the light skinned people, people of European ...
Hanno comments on Jul 8, 2020:
Mmm... fair observation. I have also noted that non religious people are better at governance than religious ones. I have also noted that women make better prime ministers than men. All fair observations... so let’s only allow white atheist woman to lead governments... You agree with me?
I'm a Christian and I hope to find an atheist who can be converted to Christianity.
Hanno comments on Jul 8, 2020:
Here I am!!! Please show me one, just one proof your selected deity exists and I will convert this very second! Proof being falsifiable etc... and not something I can disprove in like 5 seconds.
This is disturbing.
Hanno comments on Jul 8, 2020:
“It is not your fault, but you are responsible”. I Must say I am experiencing this in everyday life. If you are competent, hard working and good at solving problems and getting things done... you are immediately responsible... even though the problem has nothing to do with you. My dad used to say, if you want something done, give it to a busy man. Of course, I am also blamed for everything because everyone now have cotton on to the fact that I fix problems and it is a waste of time to blame the actual causer of the problem or who is paid to have solved it. So everyone comes and ask me to “help” them solve their problems. This is also happening on a larger scale in the world... the donkey that pulls the hardest gets wipped the most. It is another extreme form of racism.
Are camgirls a net benefit or harm to society?
Hanno comments on Jul 7, 2020:
It is funny how we all jump up and down protecting freedom of speech, but god-forbid you do something in private that affects no one else but you and the supplier. The fundamental question remains... who gives you the right to say what other people do? Do they then have a right to tell you what you are to do or not? Yet the same people who here who call out Marxist for telling them how to live their lives are the people telling others what they can and cannot do. Any one able to spell hypocrite?
