That headline about "vaccine denialism" is so crackpot that it manages to be funny—not least because it's coming from people who deny regulatory capture, deny natural immune system response (which is necessary for the precious vaccines to work), deny political corruption, deny media capture, deny oligarch influence, and fully believe that self-identification can define reality.
I'd like to see more discussion about what we can DO about what's happening to our country. While it's our job to keep educating others as to the truth & the falsity of the media/govt/pharmacy complex I think we need to find other avenues of action.
Proofs and evidence about the covid op are valuable, but we need to fight the NEXT war too-- the global warming hoax. Even that is not sufficient: the monster is still advancing; we need to make him back up.
A sibling died of turbo cancer since I last posted on your SS. I hope that those still in denial will someday stop blaming God for the consequences of their own choices.
Thanks for all you have done to enlighten people Ivor.
Right-wing, MAGA, deplorable, racist, misogynist, hater, anti-vax, Trumper - That's me!!
Oh wait ... did Turmp say the clot shot saved 10 billion lives? Which right wing are we talking about?
All a bit "odd"...
signed in to the new address, I hope that was the right thing to do? I had a sign in post, so I guess it works!
The presumption of Vaccine safety should never have been accepted at face value. All medical procedures must be rationally evaluated on a risk benefit basis. For an otherwise healthy person to undergo a medical procedure , there must be a significant benefit that cannot be obtained naturally with complete safety. We had been too trusting of public health authorities in the past. Since conservatives were more distrustful of government, they tended to be more numerous in skepticism towards public health. For some reason there used to be greater skepticism of vaccination in Western Europe prior to the covid 19 pandemic, but this disappeared after the pandemic or was overridden by the Public Health Authorities in Europe.
I'm concerned that the US government has created so many beurocratic agencies, NIH, FBI, CIA, CDC, etc, in order to circumvent what we the people vote for, or believe is right for this country.
Why did you move if I may ask?
DOCTORS FOR COVID ETHICS book
It worked - thanks for the heads-up!
I think Climate Change is the next vector by the dictator class and this one is going to be even harder to defend against than covid for various reasons (mostly because it can be made to be perpetual) and request your considerable research and writing talents to be pointed at that menace.
Thanks for all you do
Got it, thanks.
Since this is an open forum, I'll make a comment that didn't seem to fit in well anywhere else. I've had a weird experience as a gay anti-vaccer. I'm as opposed to all the recent woke craziness (pronouns, diversity trainings, etc) as anybody else, but am in a long-term loving relationship with another guy. Every once in awhile I'll read something clearly negative about gay people in an anti-vaccer thread. (This happens a lot with Jeff Childer's Coffee and Covid, for instance.) Sometimes a substack writer doesn't say homophobic things but recommends the homophobic posts of others. It's hard to know how to take this. Is there a place for someone like me in the anti-vacc community?
