You're confusing "is silenced" with "has no scientific backing and henceforth no merit"The lab origin theory was widely censored, then 18 months later the powers that be finally said, "It could have come from a lab. We don't know". We're now 2+ years into this, and there has been no official progress on the origin of the virus, other than the "wet market" story being abandoned because it was bullshit.
Discussion, debate, and research lead to solutions. Suddenly with COVID, debate is verboten and any discussion or research that questions the "current medical consensus" is silenced.
If you want to question science there is only one way to do so: more science. No serious scientist would ever question your attempts to disprove a hypothesis as long as you're clear about your methodology. They might point out flaws in your method but will do so with actual merit a.k.a. actual proof and evidence with subsequent studies and research.
You going around saying "I am being silenced!" doesn't gives you an iota of authority on a subject you know nothing about, this isn't how medicine works: You need studies, you need research and you need peer review.
Nobody has questioned the ways in which the western nations ignored scientific recommendations because they were more concerned about economical issues than the actual science but if anything, those arguments would call for far more severe, widespread and longer lasting restrictions like constant testing, contact tracing, revamping almost 100% of HVAC systems to do proper filtration and much longer lasting quarantines with even bigger economic incentives for people to stay home as much as possible to finally recover and yes, even much more widespread vaccination campaigns too.
