Simulacra53 -> RE: After Covid vaccination - if you get one (2/21/2021 8:53:39 AM)
My neighbor is 86 and seldom goes anywhere. I see him through his sliding glass door often and I see him with a mask tight upon his face, all alone. We live in a rural area. I'm not sure what to think...
That’s called being misguided.
All alone at home, in a rural area - live your life normally.
My family - wife, me and the kids - got COVID in October,
Wife and me were pretty sick for 2-3 weeks, including high fever etc. Kids were hardly affected.
Still afterwards not 100%
...but there is a balance between practical caution, solidarity and turning this into a opportunity to enforce relatively draconian measures and laws.
Basic healthcare works, in general vaccinations work, but forcing people, to silence them instead of answering their questions does not.
Many of these vaccines have been rushed through their clinical trials, the pharmaceutical corporations have made sure by contract that they are not liable. So if it works they have saved humanity at a nice profit, if it doesn’t work or if there are side effects, they still make a nice profit and we are left deal with it...
When governments start to force people, instead of convincing them (censorship and indoctrination are not the same as convincing people with facts), if a situation is used to attack free speech and privacy - like the surveillance transformation after 9/11 - if big corporations earn billions, yet do not have to carry much of the cost or risk, I start to question ... especially if we just accept numerous vaccination deaths (those were either weak elderly people or a unfortunately strong adverse responses - statistical flukes). Do I actually have a choice between vaccine A, B, C etc? (Answer no).
One of the questions I do not find has a strong answer / argument.
Do you need to be vaccinated AFTER having contracted COVID.
The official position is yes, that it is better to do so as it ensures proper exposure and a sufficient natural response of the body. Yet those who have been sick, more than mildly, should have been exposed enough to have enough of a natural response. This is the foundation of natural immunity, it is also how herd immunity works.
So early on that was all we talked about natural herd immunity.
A year later there is no more talk about natural immunity.
Far from it, we are now talking about multiple vaccination waves, maybe for years to come.
COVID is here to stay (like the flu).
So at the very minimal you can ignore much of what the institutional media is telling, because they are always behind the facts and chasing what is the official line (even in the US with its extremely polarized political landscape the opponents of the government in the media (orange man bad) follow the generally accepted narrative).
This has nothing to do with wargames (unless you include biowarfare experiments and operational use), but at least government are poor at fighting for the hearts and minds, which unfortunately is often a tell tale signal for laws and regulations that will curb your freedom and privacy. The canary in the coal mine.
That said, wash your hands, keep some distance and even a face mask can help - we never doubted them before and they have been used in healthcare for ages. Of course there is a difference between a medical grade mask and some of the the things you see.
Rambling - sorry - but either side of the topic, people imo should always think critically and ask the difficult questions, sometimes the simplest ones too like the basic 5x WHY? Fear is a powerful emotion, which has been used for ages to control the masses. At the very minimal everything that’s happening today should be judged in a rational way and IMO that’s not always in alignment with the official stance and/or narrative. Not after a year of witnessing this seesaw and the many blunders.
I question... call me a conspiracy lunatic (won’t change the fact that I question).
Back to the original topic - no I am not in a rush and will not be until I have a better understanding of what vaccine will be used, the way it works and its side effects. In fact we are talking about a virus that is still not completely understood (or at least that’s what we are told) and vaccines that have been rushed through clinical trials, including non liability contracts.
Mods, please accept my apologies up front.
