Do vaccines have unexpected side effects?
Of course they do.
Two strains of libertarians revealed by the pandemic:
1. We will oppose governments from using coercion to provide public goods by denying the problem.
2. Hey look, the government is using coercion to *inhibit* the production of public goods.
Sad to see so many in group #1.
One of the dumbest reasons I've seen to suppress a technology.
It's not just vaccines.
The recent news reminds me of the following:
The price of my war's not a price that they're willing to pay..."
"You're on your own
Do you have a clue what happens now?
It's much harder when it's all your call..."
You can compare fake vaccine cards to lying while taking a loyalty oath.
"One might suppose a loyalty oath can be trivially defeated merely by lying or doublethink, but remember, the threat is not infiltration by individuals, but infiltration by hostile organizations. If the hostile organization tells its members to lie, it can never be sure if they are telling the truth."
It's never going to get better....UNLESS
We question the science and help it get better by questioning it and coming to a conclusion which results in a vaccine that actually works
What science was based on before it became they can never be wrong and you can burn in hell for not agreeing with scientist becoming complacent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiwsv51Il4k
this is not about pro vaccine or anti vaccine this is about trying to help scientist get better by not allowing them to become complacent
My current practice on masking up in stores is as follows: I look around the store to see how many others are masking up. If most people have masks, I'll keep the mask off to let others know a vaccinated person does not need a mask. If most people don't have masks, I'll put the mask on to encourage others to say that a vaccinated person does not need a mask.
If there are 209 vaccinated cases in a population that's 90% vaccinated then you could expect (if the vaccines were ineffective) 23 unvaccinated cases. 115 are observed. That means the vaccine is 80% effective.
From the bird site:
JUST IN - Israel, where ~90% of the adult population is fully vaccinated, reports 3,849 new #COVID19 cases, severe cases spike to 324 (of which 209 are fully vaccinated) - Ministry of Health
This is absurd.
The vaccination rate has not stopped. It is, if anything, accelerating.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
