Doctors have been hated for coming out against the vaccination too. Like the cardiologist who was attacked for saying the vaccination was dangerous
+ SO many people keep denying the amount of false information about the vaccine. Lying about the vaccination rates, delta variant, hospital beds being taken up, and then claiming people who die from the vaccine within a week aren't vaccinated or just covering up deaths + censoring people who post vaccine side effects

This is literally what would have been ideal for humanity. A plague that kills the elderly was a gift, and we threw it away. They would have died, transferring all their wealth to Millennials and Generation X. With less people, wages would have risen because there was less competition for more open job slots and housing prices would have fallen for the same reason.
Plus, less people means less pollution so the rate the earth is dying would have slowed. Everyone who panicked and thought the greedy old dying was awful because they were brainwashed into thinking such by the self centered elderly.

The hysteria surrounding Covid vaccination is the worst thing about the pandemic. Not the virus, not the lockdowns, not the vaccines, but the general insanity and rabid fanatiscism induced in the public debate and general consciousness.

We live in an era where truth is malleable and elusive, which makes it difficult to believe anything.

Anyone who's ever published any scientific paper knows that science is prey to the same human flaws and patterns like any other field, because it is work done by humans and communities of humans. And anyone who's ever worked on clinical trial data and papers knows that there are always lobbying pressures and methodological oversights induced by such pressures, such that you can't trust a single lone paper telling you something, you need a metanalysis, and even then that's not enough to be 100% sure, because we're dealing with a shitload of confounding bias because trials are never designed perfectly, most of which is unobserved, small effect sizes and usually not great sample sizes.

And in the face of all this, having a measured debate or position, with arguments in favour of vaccine usage, but not in favour of mandatory vaccination is impossible, as both "sides" will ridicule and shame you.

Anonymous 108369

Good god this is disturbing…. my eyes… why

Anonymous 108370

Replying to my own post

To be entirely transparent, I understand where those opposed to the covid vaccines are coming from.

These vaccines are produced by capitalist companies whose only objective is to increase their profits and dividends to their shareholders.

These specific companies have shown themselves to be untrustworthy and willing to put their clients' health at risk in several dozen past cases, and have paid at least hundreds of millions in court settlements. To emphasize : these entites have fucked over people for monetary gain several times in the past, and there's no reason to believe they won't do it again.

Then consider the fact that all governments are extremely desperate and looking for an issue to the pandemic at more or less any cost.

Then consider that every time a concern with the vaccines is brought up, the ones bringing up the concern are either silenced or ridiculed as uneducated morons.

How is this supposed to foster trust in government policies and acceptance of vaccination ?

Anonymous 108376

But it just feeds into the wider picture of insanity.

Why must vaccines be political ? Were polio vaccines and flu shots political? It sounds too much like antivaxxer territory to me. Either way flu shots.. other vaccines.. cancer treatments.. l have to go through the fda. It is giving a voice to idiots who would go as far as to politicize masks.

Masks aren't political either. They're safety measures and people don't want to end up in the icu just because they constantly can't avoid that one idiot that hangs in crowded bars.

It becomes politicizing a natural disaster for some people. "Honestly how can the tsunami that hit Japan be real even??!!! How can we know !! The media is biased and wants us to avoid Fukushima to avoid radiation poisoning too??! Wtf do they know?!"

It lending credibility to the wrong kind of hysteria.

It's getting way too deep in crazy/hysterics for me to listen to for so long though. Since when has anyone ever reacted this way.. to any disaster? To the spanish flu epidemics? What are they going to question the hurricane season too? Sit out the next category 5 for church social points? Lol honestly after all of this stupidity and pointless mayhem I wish the hysterical right WOULD start questioning meteorologists. You need to mobilize your churches come on! For 'murrica and liberty hurrdurrr

They become political when mandates enter the fray, as unfortunate as it may be.
I don't see any reasonable people denying the existence of Covid, but I see far too many people willing to embrace the vaccines as some kind of anti-covid panacea, which they are not.

They are useful in that they severely reduce hospitalization rate and disease severity for at least 6 months after injection, there is no question about that.

However, they are not perfect in that they are not sterilizing (i.e. you can still perfectly catch and spread covid and fall ill even when vaccinated), and in that they have a very high rate of side effects for a vaccine . The absolute rates are still low, but are several orders of magnitude higher than other mandatory vaccines, while also preventing a much milder disease (yes, covid is milder than tetanos) and for a much shorter time.

Therefore in my opinion, it makes sense to offer voluntary vaccination to anyone willing, and to vaccinate in priority those at risk of severe disease : the elderly and people with comorbidity factors which are well identified by now.

There isn't much to gain with mandatory vaccination.

Anonymous 108394

Whether you agree the vaccine is good or not, this is an infringement on our human rights. Imagine if people who didn't get pnemonia or flu vaccines regularly got kicked out of housing, lost their jobs, were unable to receive basic human medical care, etc. That would be insane, right? So what makes the COVID vaccine any different? Especially since most people are vaccinated still get is as well as spread it but people would rather ruin America over a shitty malfunctioning shot than allow people to control if they want a vaccine or not

I mean its YOUR grandparents that are more likely to die, your immunodeficienct friends and relatives.

we shouldn't have been forcing people to get shots anyway. That being said some places consider you "unvaxxed" until you're up to date with every shot, booster, and two weeks have passed. The slippery slope is real and the extremes people will go to in order to try to force people to get the vax is concerning. You don't just turn your immune system into a subscription service

Depends honestly, if I'm in a store/shop then I won't put it on unless an employee asks me to do it, to which I'll politely comply and just say "Oh sorry, it completely slipped my mind, thanks for the reminder!".
The thing is 9 times out of 10 they won't be bothered to confront you about it. I've gone inside a convenient store 7 or 8 times now without wearing one and only ONCE was I stopped by someone. It's not even that they're intimidated or anything, they literally just don't care enough to say anything.
I'm starting to believe the average joe doesn't really care about THAT much about his safety (ie doesn't want to get sick) and is more concerned with conformity since everyone else is doing it.

Other than that though, if it's some place like a hospital or an old person's home then put it on.

Only dipshit obedient sheep wear a mask or get the vaccine. Enjoy taking boosters for life, retards!

This. I felt a glimmer inside me the first time I put on a mask. I wasn't sure what it was for a while but my Agoraphobia was gone.

Turned out it was the single piece of confidence I have ever gotten in my unholy life–all because I finally could hide my face.

Definitely true, I went in a store and spent some time there before suddenly realizing I was the only person without a mask lol. nobody mentioned it
I usually wear one though, since I live in a place where many people do have strong opinions about it and I'm afraid of people who might be verbally or physically aggressive over it. Not worth THAT risk

I never wear it unless entering a restaurant/grocery. Never outside never in cars

Hey, how about you put away your nasty picture of total doom and gloom? We will only need like 4 or so boosters to go to most places that will be pumped with ozone and irradiated!

only when someone directly asks me to (e.g. in one of my university classes, the professor has an elderly family member who is at-risk, so i wear it in her class even though i normally hate it)
otherwise, no. i'm vaccinated and don't put myself in high-risk situations, so i don't see a need. there has to be a point where all of this ends. i'm not wearing it forever.

yes, i have a family member who works in an ICU & immunocompromised family i'd like to visit, so i try to be extra careful about exposure to any diseases at all, including covid. masks are a small part of that. i like how handshakes have kind of gone out of style because there's nothing i hate more than having to shake some man's hand.

anecdotally i think masks are pretty cool because i've known several women who told me they started feeling like makeup is ridiculous during mask mandates, which have ended now (so they're not wearing as much makeup even though they've personally taken off the masks). anything that makes makeup seem like dumb shit is good in my book.

Masks are useless, the dirty piece of cloth made in China you wear everywhere does not prevent the spread of the virus.
And mRNA technology isn't a vaccine, they even had to quietly change the dictionary definition of a vaccine to include mRNA thinking nobody would notice. They also changed herd immunity to remove the inclusion of natural immunity through infection.
Female health was, as usual, completely overlooked when making these vaccines and an alarming amount of women are reporting unwanted side effects related to their periods, who knows what long-term effects this will have on our health and fertility.
It's not even that effective, the benefit-risk ratio isn't worth it. You're priming yourselves for a never-ending cycle of booster shots every 6 months or so which is going to make the vaccine mandates permanently relevant.
COVID killed so many because it's misunderstood and poorly treated. Those pharmaceutical industries are defunding research on treatments so they can sell their product forever. Any expert or doctor expressing concerns about it is silenced and fired.
The collective well-being of our society is being jeopardized for profit, this is nothing new.

Masks are the worst kind of health theatre. For people at risk they NEED to be wearing FPP2/FPP3 masks. Surgical masks are not effective for group settings.

But because govts latched onto surgical masks as a safety blanket/beh control mech early on they seem to be unable to admit that.

If a person is not vaxxed that's their choice, as immunity is not sterilising they are only risking their own health if they are clinically vulnerable (very fat or very old).

When will this hell end?

So never.
People are such NPCs they are spreading their buttcheeks so daddy government controls them harder. Everything that was "for our safety" and "temporary" remained, how can they be so gullible?
It's over. Western countries are slowly descending into technocratic-fascism and people couldn't care less.
Freedom comes with a price that they are not ready to pay, they'd rather pick the safety of a cage. They are no better than cattle, in fact that's how they are treated.

What's crazy about studies on masks to me is that they're impossible to control, so you can't separate the actual effect of mask wearing from behavioral differences between mask-wearers and non-mask-wearers. That's particularly salient when taking the pandemic seriously is a politicized topic. So masks are a kind of behavior control if wearing one makes people take other measures too.

This. Voting is pointless.
At best you elect a politician who is going to represent the citizens with their manners and values but it's going to do fuck all in the grand scheme of things.
They all serve the same goals, they just have different coats of paints to give you the illusion of choice.
If voting had any impact it wouldn't be allowed.

proof? Look, I actually agree with >>108028
but that doesn't mean that the vaccine does not work at all.

So just do nothing, then? this is what no communism does to a MF

Hell yes I wear my mask, I have about 8 of them, very comfy, in different fabric patterns. One is a custom print of my own pattern. I get many compliments. I love watching the schizos larp at being oppressed because they don't want to wear a completely inconsequential accessory. Meanwhile I'm sitting pretty in my cute mask!

I also wear a hat with a picture of my face on it, so that people know what my smile looks like. :)

I feel and hear you both. I use it because my face gets a bit hairy sometimes :(
