Can the WHO still be considered a legitimate organisation after their complete and utter failure at fulfilling their mandate? Furthermore shouldn't it be distressing how much they suck up to China?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JikvREnZXJk
>>11523515They told everyone right back in January that more testing is important and pretty much everyone ignored them.
>>11523912Whom are you quoting?
What are you actually calling for OP? The WHO to be better funded? To be able to force nations to comply with their advice?
>>11523919They also told everyone that masks aren't effective in stopping the spread.
>>11523926I wasn't green then for a second.
>>11523940Isn't most of WHO activity vaccinating 3rd world children or something? Is it not enough for these people to hate in their local niggers they'll go after foreign children.
>>11523934My bad, I was either mistaken or they've corrected their guidelines. Now they're saying it's ineffective unless combined with hand washing and social distancing, which is reasonable.
>>11523973This is blatant misinformation on the FDA's site:https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/personal-protective-equipment-infection-control/n95-respirators-and-surgical-masks-face-masks>For the general American public, there is no added health benefit to wear a respiratory protective device (such as an N95 respirator), and the immediate health risk from COVID-19 is considered low.>no added health benefit
>>11523940Explain their utter failure in preventing this pandemic and why they suck up to China instead of making baseless adhoms.
>>11524071>Accuses poster of doing adhoms, but using a adhom against WHO.The irony is real.
>>11524098When did I make an adhom?
>>11524102Attacking a Intergovernmental Organization with little to know power other than to influence sovereign states that are often stubborn to conform to internationally beneficial norms is a adhom.>>11523951Using the N word is a adhom.
>>11524115So? How is that an adhom when it's true. Did you watch the video in the OP? Tell me how that's not a problem.
>>11524121>So?That's a minute cut without context with a blatantly bias title.
>>11524128>literally dodges a harmless question about Taiwan and rage quits when asked again>out of contextHoly shit dude.
>>11524121Plus, dismissing an entire organization because of the complexities of international politics seems a little much, don't you think?
>>11524136Here's the thing with the UN.>>11523912I don't give a shit about territories or power dynamics, I give a shit about making sure these SDG's are the international goals.
>>11523635He might have said that, but He DID NOT SAY it WAS A GOOD THING. Mr dissinformation agent.
>>11523940>"than seeing things from multiple perspectives.">knee jerk dismissal to perspectives he doesn't likethis self awareness
>>11524115>Attacking a Intergovernmental Organization with little to know power other than to influence sovereign states that are often stubborn to conform to internationally beneficial norms is a adhom.that's not what an adhom is, attacking an organization that is tasked with informing the world of pandemics where they failed miserably is calling a spade a spade.

I honestly doubt you have any interest or aptitude in the natural sciences. People questioning official narratives shouldn't rustle your jimmies as much as it seems to anon. A surprising as this maybe to a community college gender studies major like yourself, sometime the media lies, sometimes governments are run by retards, and sometimes corporations don't have your best interests at heart.
>>11524355>attacking an organization that is tasked with informing the world of pandemics What is the media? What is lack of UN funding? Who is Bill Gates?I'm sorry, I just don't think you're putting your eggs in the right basket when playing the blame game.
>>11523919no they did not. they downplayed the situation from the start and didn't call it a pandemic for weeks after it was obvious to everyone. they acted like it wasn't transmissible from human to human even though it fit the model of infectious disease. they did not suggest the precautionary principle and told health commissioners around the world china had it under control. then they bitched at countries for doing the obvious thing like shutting down borders.
>>11524373>What is the media?lol, journos just parrot talking points from the who.>What is lack of UN funding?fucking bs, it's really not hard to apply the precautionary principle.>Who is Bill Gates?what does he have to do with this?>I just don't think you're putting your eggs in the right basket when playing the blame game.you can think whatever you like but in actually you are just making excuses for the culprits of this pandemic.

>>11524394>>Why don't just like blame a religious deity, or science? An outbreak obviously isn't anyone's fault.who are you quoting there? it's the who's fault. who also pushes bs pseudoscience as medicine. looks like they should've listened to bill gates. mang was on top of this more than those retards at the who.
>>11524379Instead of blaming, you faggots need to go get a sustainability (or the like) degree and fucking learn how to put local policy to prevent disasters from happening in the future.
>>11524115>Using the N word is an adhomI hope this is tongue-in-cheek. You sound like someone from the YouTube "skeptic" community ca. 2014. . . people just throwing out the term "logical fallacy" left and right, often in contexts where it doesn't make sense. Not to mention, the ad hominem isn't even a formal fallacy (meaning it's not really a fallacy at all, in the sense of formal logic). By the way, if you'd like to add another informal fallacy to you repertoire, you just committed a tu quoque (which is, to be fair, about as logically harmless as an ad hominem).In actual academic circle the main fallacies people worry about are fallacies like denying the antecedent, affirming the consequent, fallacies of ambiguity, non-sequiters, and statistical and inductive fallacies. Informal fallacies aren't really even addressed, because it's just rhetoric, by another name. What you really have to worry about are formal fallacies like the ones I listed above, because they can actually lead to incorrect conclusions.

>>11524461https://www.economist.com/https://www.npr.org/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvqKZHpKs-gThese are my superior news outlets.
>>11524472So basically the red scare?
>>11524485What is? Enabling a class divide between the workers & the owners of capital?
>>11524498rooting out foreign infiltration into our institutions who try to sabotage and/or even kill us so that their country gets a leg up over ours. https://news.yahoo.com/suspected-sars-virus-and-flu-found-in-luggage-fbi-report-describes-chinas-biosecurity-risk-144526820.htmllook, dude. i'm not happy about the class divide in the us but china is that much worse when it comes to inequity. the fact you would suck winnie the pooh's dick so blindly tells me you don't care about anything but labels. just like with science, you just need that good 'ol sciencetm seal and it's legit to you. but i digress on communism you're like "oh look the ccp has communist in their name they must be exactly what marx wanted." meanwhile i'm sure marx wouldn't want to be associated with the likes of dipshits like you actively pervert what he stood for.
>>11524518All I'm saying is that the UN needs support, not to be beaten while their down. You are the UN, I am the UN, we are the UN. We create the change we want, ourselves. If we choose to take initiative.
>>11524534they need support for what? to be incompetent corrupt brainlets who at best fuck up this hard or at worst blatantly lie to us and fuck us over? no thanks. i'm not that stupid and gullible. the un needs to be cleaned up. all that corruption and incompetence rooted out. then they can have my support. till then you're just making excuses and relying on something untrustworthy at your own peril. no, dude. the most help we can give the un is call for a much needed investigation and restructuring so they do what they were intended to do. not be the liability that funnels our money from us that they currently are.
>>11524572I'm pretty sure that statement is easily applicable towards your domestic government.Unless of course you're a blind nationalist.
>>11524581not nearly as applicable as it is to the WHO. even orange cheeto while an incompetent nincompoop did more to protect the US than the WHO. weeks before the WHO admitted this was a pandemic despite being blatantly obvious, blumpf shut down air travel to china. and what did the WHO do? bitch about it. so even orange cheeto is more trustworthy than they are.https://www.voanews.com/science-health/coronavirus-outbreak/who-chief-urges-countries-not-close-borders-foreigners-china
>>11524603Haven't you even taken an international relations course? The United Nations has no power other than to influence sovereign states.
>>11524142I'm criticizing their effectiveness as an organization and their integrity. Their handling of this crisis and their dick sucking of Chinese authorities should alarm you.
>>11524615yeah and their influence is toxic. they are essentially an advisory board no thinking person should trust.
>>11524475>>11524498Holy shit you /leftypol/ retards stick out like a sore thumb. I realize you don't have a patriotic bone in your body and the idea that foreign spies stealing scientific data and other classified information doesn't bother you but it's in the national interest of any country to stop what's going on here. You're more pathetic than a janny dude. Imagine doing shill work on behalf of the CCP for free.

>>11524664>Why would an organization with no actual power be able to prevent the pandemic?because they are responsible in advising national health ministries on how to respond to pandemics. > Literally all they can do is recommend a course of action that can be ignored by retards who run countries and claim it was a hoax.funny how what they recommended was keeping air travel open, that china had this under control, and countries should just go about their business like it wasn't transmissible from human to human. and calling an obvious pandemic weeks late. also on blumpf calling it a hoax:https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-coronavirus-rally-remark/>Despite creating some confusion with his remarks, Trump did not call the coronavirus itself a hoax.
>>11524664Governments trust their information and that gives them influence you stupid faggot. They don't need to literally have executive authority over governments to have power. Imagine coming to /sci/ and being this much of a fucking retard. No wonder you shill for the CCP and the WHO for free.
>>11524673Completely disregards Trump wanting to open the economy up. You're obviously buying into the white nationalist blame game, nazi.

Here's some science for you
>>11524693not an argument
>>11524688Imagine spreading false information just so you can score some political points against Cheetoh Hitler. Do you have no shame? Really nice deflection though, I guess you didn't have a good response.
>>11524707This is what uneducated hicks actually think anti-fascists aka liberal art students are like.
>>11524708so why did he establish the task force to deal with it if it was a a hoax? why did he act on it before the who called it a pandemic? because "this is their new hoax" doesn't refer to the virus itself, brainlet. > why do you need a third party to parse that for you? Are you an actual NPC?lol says the npc brainlet who needs an excel spreadsheet for what is and isn't credible news. the only reason i posted snopes is because it is expedient.
>>11524712they're not wrong. i walked by their faculties every day on my way to my stemlord lectures and can confirm.
>>11524719how about you show me your source for this instead. >>11524720yes at the WHO offices.

>>11524739good on tucker, looks like he is more reliable than the WHO too that downplayed the transmission of the virus and then went on a spegout when blumpf acted on it rationally by closing down air travel.

>>11524901i really don't care. you are blatantly dishonest one way or another. you started off with all this whataboutism about trump to distract from genuine criticism of the WHO then go onto say "Who said I was trying to pin it on trump?" ffs it's pathetic. >>11524908so desperate to use an off the cuff remark as evidence for anything. pathetic. grasping at straws.
>>11524915>Questions the integrity of someone who studies Confucianism.Okay>Keep assuming
>>11524920>>11524936look mang, don't pin yourself to any ideology. free yourself from those chains. sometimes the left has good pts, sometimes the right does. sometimes authoritarians. sometimes libertarians. sometimes commies. and sometimes even fascists. liberals, conservatives, egalitarians, nationalists, confucianists, falun gongs, etc. be your own person. there is no reason to go defending something when it fucks up. the goal is for all of us to be happy and healthy, right? all ideologies have their strengths and weaknesses. but being a zealot is a one way street to misery. you should treat politics like an a la carte menu, not table d'hote. but i get it, you put a lot of investment into this so it's hard when you have your heart wound up in it. you want to defend it so badly like someone going through an abusive relationship denying it to their friends and family when they point out the black eye. but trust me bro the second you sever the tie you'll be on a better path.
>>11524962You're trying to convince a deeply brainwashed /leftypol/ refugee. I admire your dedication but it's probably a lost cause.
>>11524962I respect your words, and I will take them seriously.That being said, I will stand by those Sustainable Development Goals for many years to come, because I know that those SDG's are justified common morality.
>>11524966hey those are good goals but if you want them realized you need to be critical of the organization too. bad actors will weasel their way into institutions like that and sabotage it. stay vigilant. and sorry for getting heated in places. i'm just really angry at the state of the world's public health systems other than sk and taiwan. after the the dust settles we as a species really need to restructure everything from local hospital administrations all the way up to global public health organizations like the who to make sure something like this never happens again.
oh noes i got the e-coofs again. re-infected. shit.
