Ivermectin, ‘Noble Lies,’ and Whom Do We Trust?

“America was founded by those who lost trust in their mother country.  Our Constitution was unique in that it mistrusted the very institutions of governing, with checks and balances codified for the citizens’ protection.  It would be wonderful if we could trust the people we charge with our care, but experience reminds us that we can’t.  The Bible reminds us that we are all sinners, all of us fallen, the only trust being through Christ.”

(Keith Jackson – American Thinker)  The controversy around the use of ivermectin and, previously, hydroxychloroquine joins a long list of things where the left’s pursuit of the “Noble Lie” is judged more important than honest debate.  This particular piece of dishonesty claims that vaccinations, masking, and social distancing alone will eradicate COVID-19, and all other “side hustles” like these inexpensive medications are mockable, “snake oil” obfuscations….

Whom we choose to align with in these debates is unjustifiably and destructively polarizing, especially when facts may not line up with the pursued plans of those we trust to lead.  Why we trust and how we justify lying come into question.

By now, most of us know that there are studies, many of them from our own CDC, that show the effectiveness of ivermectin when given early in the course of COVID-19.  There is real-life proof that countries like Japan have already had success with the medication.  The medicine is cheap and safe when used properly.  Like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin is nevertheless demonized by the political left, its mainstream media, and the medical establishment, the last despite published studies by reputable investigators.
