Resist, but don’t let it grind you to dust
I get many communications from people struggling with the “Jab or Job” issue.
“Hello Mark, if a person has to get a vaccine to keep their job, can you point to a trustworthy source evaluating the relative risks? E.g., suggesting which vaccine Is lowest risk for someone in their 30s in good health. My preference is no vaccine, though both my wife and I are looking at potential unemployment in the near term. One option we’re considering is for me to get one to keep us solvent. I appreciate any info you can share on this. I’m heartbroken even having to consider this option. If you don’t have any info or time to respond, please accept a “thanks!” From me for the science moment videos you put out.”
Hey. I’m not really the guy to ask on vaccines. Out of my wheelhouse.
But, I do want to say that even within our resistance community the opposition to vaccination is becoming more heightened than necessary.
Yeah, no one should be forced. And no need for it if one has natural immunity.
But totalitarian forces like this often cannot be won. And we cannot all stand against it without being ground to dust.
Some have more backup options than others. There is no shame in eventually having to give in, although one can still argue locally or globally against the mandates.
On risks, they are small. They’re real. But small.
Even though small, when one forces the world to take it with little benefit in many cases it amounts to a crime against humanity. Each forced jab is a tiny crime, but it integrates to a huge level.
Anyway, I just don’t want folks to lose all sense of proportion. Sometimes we do things that are dumb and even a little unsafe because of stupid government red tape rules. Happens all the time. We don’t even notice most of them. This is just one more, and not worth getting obliterated over.
My family comes from Iran. My wife dealt with this stuff her whole life. She sees the similarities.
But she’s more practical about it than I am.
“You can’t fight it. The masses will just be the masses, and no need to die on the street for them.”
She’s lived it, I think there’s wisdom there. (Although in reality she is fighting it here, but more practically.)
I’m hoping we can still mayyybe change things before it’s too late, but it may be that we’re way past that.
