Obedience to Authority
More than 1 billion people subjected themselves to multiple injections with a novel pharmaceutical product.
I find the persistent faith in the safety and effectiveness of the covid vaccines to be both confounding and horrifying. A large part of it must be driven by people who are unwilling to confront the reality that they were conned into taking a dangerous drug that they did not need, and that they may have harmed themselves (or their children) in the process.
Make no mistake, the covid vaccines were always a con. Mass covid vaccination may just be the most successful con job in human history.
Consider that prior to covid, no mRNA vaccine had ever been brought to market DUE TO SAFETY CONCERNS.
Consider that prior to covid, no vaccine of any kind had ever been brought to market for any of the many circulating coronaviruses DUE TO LACK OF EFFECTIVENESS.
But in response to a “novel” coronavirus, two mRNA vaccine products were brought to market in less than a year.
Less than a year later, more than 1 billion people had been injected.
Less than a year later, most of those people got sick with covid.
Why were so many people eager to subject themselves to multiple injections with novel pharmaceutical products?
These pharmaceutical products have simply not been around long enough for the claim that they are “safe” to have any scientific basis. Saying that the covid vaccines are “safe” is literally a declaration of faith.
Furthermore, these “vaccines” are not magic potions. In theory, they are supposed to “teach” the immune system, but people act as if they magically enhance it. The preferred metaphor, pushed relentlessly by the CDC, is that the mRNA covid vaccines provide “protection.”
At the end of the process, our bodies have learned how to help protect against future infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. The benefit is that people get this protection from a vaccine, without ever having to risk the potentially serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19. Any side effects from getting the vaccine are normal signs the body is building protection.
But these “vaccines” are teaching our bodies that the spike protein is the way to identify and eliminate SARS-CoV-2, when our bodies have myriad ways to identify and eliminate viruses, many of them still unknown to doctors. Here’s the CDC explaining “how mRNA COVID-19 vaccines work.”
Our cells display the spike protein piece on their surface. Our immune system recognizes that the protein does not belong there. This triggers our immune system to produce antibodies and activate other immune cells to fight off what it thinks is an infection. This is what your body might do if you got sick with COVID-19.
How could this “protection” be superior to immunity acquired via infection? You don’t need to be an expert of any kind to see that that makes no sense.

What are we to make of all those who submitted to “vaccination” shortly after they had been sick with covid and recovered? Why did so many people line up to do something that is so obviously deranged? What possible benefit could accrue to someone who gets vaccinated not long after they were infected?
And what to make of those people who got two injections meant to prevent covid infection… then got sick with covid… then lined up for a third and even a fourth injection of THE EXACT SAME PRODUCT THAT FAILED TO PROTECT THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Instead of generating more robust immunity, vaccination post-infection seems much more likely to generate more circumscribed immunity.
The same holds true for repeated injections. The most likely result is a progressively stunted immune response to SARS-CoV-2.
We learned from Stanley Milgram’s famous experiments how far people are willing to go when ordered to harm others because “science” says so. For many, there is no limit.
But it was still a surprise to learn that people are willing to go just as far when ordered to harm themselves.
It is hard to escape the conclusion that most people are pathologically obedient to authority. Their obedience is unlimited and unbound.
I find this conclusion to be not merely terrifying, but ineffably sad. Most people spend their lives just following orders.
What really fucked me up about the last two years was realizing that so many of my friends, my Family, neighbors, the C level I worked for… they all just turned out to be people spending their lives to follow orders. Thoughtlessly. Just to fit in and get along. Very few people I really looked up to for courage or integrity pre-Covid remain as models or mentors. Still trying to process that .
Explains much of human history.
I’m pleased that I’m in the 1/3 that doesn’t trust authority and doesn’t like being pushed around.....and has some ability to see through BS.
It comes with a price though. It’s not easy to see things that others don’t. And a lot of things in my life would have been easier if I had learned to ‘just give in’.
I’m sure that many here are the same......
