Lies My Gov't Told Me and The Better Future Coming Robert Malone MD MS Book Review Indian Critics

Dr Robert Malone’s experiences illustrate a broader debate about the balance between free speech and the prevention of misinformation in the digital age. Malone’s sidelining and bans from public spaces and the internet, mainly social media platforms, highlight the challenges of moderating content in a rapidly evolving and polarised environment. Critics argue that such actions by big tech companies in collaboration with the government have led to unwarranted censorship, stifling open discourse and scientific debate. Moreover, we have all witnessed the same, especially on Twitter (now turned into X, for the best of the public discourse). Twitter’s content moderation was one-sided and a blatant abuse of power – power that the government and its comrades inside the big-tech glass doors held! 


Let us focus on the case of Dr Anthony Fauci, a key figure in the US government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite criticism and scrutiny, particularly from those who question the effectiveness of public health measures and the safety of vaccines, he still enjoys perks and parking offered by the US government. On the other hand, critical scientists like Dr Robert Malone are subjects of institutionalised humiliation and government harassment.


Dr Malone’s book, “Lies My Gov’t Told Me: And the Better Future Coming,” has sparked a new debate about the government’s pandemic management. The book delves into Malone’s perspective on the COVID-19 response, including his critiques of public health measures and the development of vaccines. Detractors of Malone’s work argue that it disseminates misinformation and conspiracy theories. At the same time, supporters view it as a demand for transparency and accountability in government and public health institutions.


Dr Robert Malone, a prominent figure in mRNA technology, has been vocal in his criticism of the US government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly concerning vaccine development and the role of regulatory bodies. In his claim, he argues that the pharmaceutical industry has influenced the FDA, NIH, and CDC, leading to a misalignment of priorities and a failure to prioritise public health.


Malone expresses disappointment in the government’s handling of the pandemic, suggesting that repurposing already known, safe drugs for emerging infectious diseases could have been a more effective and rapid approach to reducing COVID-19 mortality rates. He believes that regulatory capture has compromised the integrity of these institutions, causing them to prioritise the pharmaceutical industry’s interests over the common good.


Furthermore, Malone claims to have faced censorship, defamation, and character assassination for expressing data-based concerns about the vaccines and the government’s response to the pandemic. He argues that this suppression of dissenting voices has prevented open scientific debate and hindered the development of effective strategies to combat COVID-19. 


One may refer to Twitter’s banning of Dr Malone from the platform. Who should be the authority to talk about mRNA vaccines? Some coding geek tweaking Twitter algorithms at the behest of the corrupt US government or someone who invented the mRNA vaccine technology? One may easily decide!  

It is fitting to quote from Dr Malone’s book: 

“COVID-19 has been a boon to the fact-checking industry. Big outfits like Politifact and have special divisions just to police COVID “misinformation.” Like the Ministry of Truth imagined by George Orwell in his epic novel, “1984,” these outfits will tell you what you can and can’t say about the lockdowns, masks, and the mRNA vaccines manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna.”


It is interesting how Malone invokes 1984 aptly to underscore a critical point in today’s public discourse. Many governments, especially the paragons of self-righteousness and freedom of expression, the US and Canada, are abusing people’s rights (whichever way they like). Fact-checkers control the narrative at the behest of big tech, pharma and the government. 


Returning to the book “Lies My Gov’t Told Me,” it is certainly a timely read. Dr Malone’s well-researched, fact-based, and critically important book may inform readers of many things they might never know about surfing the internet and social media platforms. Well over 500 pages and bearing a thought-provoking foreword by Robert F. Kennedy JR., the book opens up to the readers the gates of perception (locked by the government and those they work for). RFK Jr. opens his arguments in the following way: 

“Lies My Gov’t Told Me is an apropos title for a book by a man who knows those lies from the inside, where he spent much of his life, and from the outside, where many powerful people want him to spend the rest of his life.”


In 36 chapters, excluding the foreword, introduction, acknowledgement, and references, the author has tried to cover many different aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic and related issues. Dr Malone has tried to relate the COVID-19 pandemic with many aspects that prominent alternative news persons like Alex Jones, James O’Keefe, and even mainstream figures like Tucker Carlson and Joe Rogan have discussed for many years. Closed societies, cashless economy, obey or perish population batches, New World Order, and many other things. Though these ideas might not make sense to someone entirely new to this world of conspiracy theories (many have come true already), a patient reading will eventually clear things up. 


Before I conclude, let us be generous and tolerant. While Malone’s perspective significantly critiques the government’s handling of the pandemic, it is essential to consider the broader context and the scientific consensus on these issues. Though data about COVID-19 vaccines have come into the public domain to a large extent, and even vaccine makers have accepted in court that side effects might be problematic in ‘some’ cases, waiting for things to clear may be worthwhile. 

The book is a must-read, without a doubt! Please read this one by an acclaimed scientist in the field of vaccines as he tries to wear many hats on the same day! You can get a copy in your preferred format from Amazon India by clicking the link below:
