At FreeX we research free expression, mass hysteria, and the complex emergent forces shaping society.

Our newsletter is one of the best ways we have to express our research insights.

In addition to subscribing, consider becoming a member: We're independent scientists, no longer connected to any specific university. That makes our expression truly free. But we need your support.

Masters of public health seem to have no idea what the public is made out of

Many epidemiologists are essentially physicists, and those are among the last sort of people one wants making the complex, subtle, ethically steeped decisions about civil rights and balancing safety and freedom. Physicists tend to have delusions of grandeur b…

Why FreeX now?

We’re starting something new here at FreeX, and we’re doing it on the first anniversary of what one might call, “The Great Mass Delusion of 2020.” Over the next several communications we’ll explain what we’re up to, but in this first one, let me give you some…

Connecting the eyes

When you connect to others, you connect via the eyes. When I make my videos, this is an issue, and why I favor portrait mode, as I discuss here.

YouTube censors second video of mine, this one — ironically — on the Covid purges.

My Science Moment 115 was censored by YouTube, this time within mere minutes of posting it. I’m on their watch list. It’s basically the second in a row; I did one video since my last one before this, but it was really just complaining about YouTube censorship…

How did masks go from totally-ineffective to totally-required-or-you're-unclean in a month?

I've talked before about how social groups within a narrative come to have virtue signals which serve to identify members and non-members. (E.g., see here.) But how exactly do they "evolve"? For example, how did masks go from totally-ineffective to totally-re…

Why remember the Holocaust

Are you Nazis? No.Are you acting under the influence of the same psycho-societal forces that also influenced the Nazis? Yes.That's why we remember the Holocaust. Not because the exact same thing will happen. But because human societies will forever be suscept…

Seventeen reasons these are not vaccines as usual

New technology.No long term studies. Barely medium term. For a virus broadly flu like in IFR. Being pushed on kids who have almost zero risk from Covid, which is ten times less risky than is flu for them. Whereas we have never required flu vaccines for most j…

Turn your company into a private club to become anti-discriminatory

It used to be that companies would make themselves private clubs so that they could engage in loathsome discrimination.Now they are making themselves private clubs so that they can AVOID engaging in loathsome discrimination mandated by your government.

The choice to "get political" at YouTube

My Science Moment series was at Moment 52 when Covid hit. At that point, my videos were all on topics in and around my research.When Covid happened, although I took to Twitter immediately and fought the craziness (already breaking my prior apolitical status, …

YouTube censors my video on the Precautionary Principle

I'm fairly certain I had been deboosted at YouTube after doing several videos concerning vaccines (see the story), but, despite 60 Moments on Covid issues, YouTube hadn't full-on pulled any video down.But they finally did.

Support nondiscriminatory establishments

I made the mistake of wearing a mask the first time. But when they reinstated it in 2021 I have not. And if kicked out I make trouble in person and then afterward to the management or owner. Avoid any company requiring vax passes. Obviously.Proud of my own gy…

If COVID hysteria was not brought about intentionally, then is there anyone to blame?

Most of us have bad intuitions about free will and responsibility. I certainly used to. As a physics-math guy, the issue was totally straightforward when I was young. If determinism is true, then we have no free will.If determinism is not true, then there's i…

China didn’t do this to us

Sure, China’s a bad guy. Most of all to its own people. And the biggest enemy of the U.S. and the West.So, when a virus appears to emanate from China, spreads throughout the world, and China’s draconian policies are taken up by everyone else, then — surely — …

Why does it matter what caused it?

Fighting it, I am!But getting the cause right matters. It may not be everything, but it's nearly everything. That's why we at FreeX are obsessed with understanding the cause, and the "physics" underneath.If you get the cause wrong, your efforts to stop it wil…

Now's the time to be the squeaky wheel

I’ve been a customer at Crimson Cup for seven years, commonly going to the locations in Clintonville, UA and Easton. In fact, I used to live about eight houses down the street from the one in Clintonville, and would regularly write my books while there. Great…
