Convert to the New Normal?

My name is Mark Skidmore. Though I am highly educated (Professor/Ph.D.), I am perceived by many to be ignorant and misinformed. I may lose my job, be banned from travelling, eating in restaurants, and attending other public venues because I refuse to convert the new normal.

  1. As someone who worked with Veterans with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries, many doctors and nurses would counsel the injured to “accept the new normal”. I know that in their hearts they were trying to psychologically prepare the injured veteran to accept a limitation that was imposed by a trauma they did not know how to treat.

    That’s the rub…those nurses and doctors DID NOT KNOW HOW TO TREAT THE INJURED. Many other practitioners and researchers had developed effective treatments that restored lost functions, repaired neurological injuries and gave back most, if not all, of the lives back the injured Veterans. We did the impossible on a daily basis.

    Once we were able to demonstrate the recovery, that a path was available for treatment, the very same people that said if could not be done ignored, ridiculed and attacked those that were doing the effective treatment. It is human nature to do so.

    The point of the story is that the plandemic (I can’t believe that I am using that word…but I cannot ignore the evidence) is going through the same cycle. Those people that have the treatment for this disease (The Constitution and the Bill of Rights) and now exposing the people that are rolling over and telling everyone to accept the new normal (trade the semblance of security for digital slavery). This state of affairs is neither new or normal. It is part of a 10,000 year war…


  2. Mark,
    Hang In! Lighthouse Economics has established itself as a credible source of information and critical thinking.
    Thousands/Millions of us are being subjected to the same influences but are guided by “Trust But Verify”.
