The more they vaccinate, the worse it will get, but vaccinating is all they want to do.
Hello from Flanders, Belgium. Very comparable situation here. 92,3% of people older than 18 yrs have been vaccinated. 96,1% of population older than 65. And yet, cases are up 11%, hospitalisations 25% (ICU beds 40% up), deaths 14%.
2 hospital doctors from Antwerp and Turnhout have literally admitted on regional television
that the majority of patients are now fully vaccinated. The ICU in the Antwerp hospitals is completely filled with vaccinated people.
But of course there is no change of direction. I will be very surprised if we do not enter into a sort of lockdown / extension of our version of the corona passport to companies.
The fallacy of two weeks to flatten the curve was the frog getting in the pot. They aren’t going to lift the lid. We have to tip it over.
The buffoonish actions of the politicians and public health officials are what one would expect from he useful idiot class. This is about conditioning individuals across the globe to comply, so they can usher in draconian controls in the name of "the environment". In reality, these people are simply the tools of the latest round of sociopathics to stain the march of humanity away from the stone age. The resistance to these anti-life lunatics in the US has gone from lukewarm to warm and is clearly moving to hot. Expect the resistance to boil over into a clear majority over the next 12 months. Do not comply. Continue speaking truth.
The worst part is the waiting. It’s tough feeling so negative with that burning pit in your stomach wondering, what numbers are they going to need to see before the veil is lifted? And I know it won’t lift for everyone, just enough so that the majority see the truth and we can finally stop this. Our pediatrician is literally trying to shame the kids in his practice into getting the jabs. I’m talking about the 5-11 year olds! When you live in a state where you know the politicians are particularly keen on mandating shots as soon as possible, the stress is incredible.

These "rules" do not come from SCIENCE or even sober medical analysis, but from some bureaucrat sitting at a desk.
Do you happen to have any take on Sweden? Our cases have been relatively flat for like 2 months and we are basically the only country in Northern Europe that haven't seen a sharp uptick. We also never had a significant Delta wave during the summer like in the Netherlands or the UK. It's especially interesting to compare the southern region of Skåne (where I live) with Copenhagen/East Denmark. In Copenhagen cases have soared lately, while Skåne has remained flat for a long time, and we're practically neighbors. Sweden's vaccination rate is basically in line with Germany's while Denmark is higher at 75%. If I should guess: the fact that we kept schools open the whole time must have contributed to a higher degree of natural immunity that reached a sufficient level before the full scope of the mass vaccination. Also restaurants were open the whole time (alhough with a curfew for half a year), so that might have contributed a bit as well.
Still waiting for that winter wave though!
The bureaucrats are afraid for their jobs now. Watch out...

Thank you for your work. You are one of my go-to sources for analysis and perspective on The Plague.
Peak Kafka. The contortions being undergone in order to try and continue to scapegoat and blame this on the unvaccinated are becoming painful and embarrassing. Unfortunately, I think it will continue until every last person is pinned down and jabbed. Scapegoating is a primal need which overrides any rationality. I read this wonderful piece by Charles Eisenstein which talks about it so well: https://charleseisenstein.substack.com/p/mob-morality-and-the-unvaxxed
Mountains of evidence accumulate to be summarily ignored by the panicked population, propaganda media, and government tyrants. The solution will only come from litigation, political action, or rebellion. We're seeing some of all in the US. Things will get worse before they get better.
Justthenews.com reports this morning that 27 states have joined a suit against the joe mandates, which are predominantly, but not exclusively, states with repub AG or governor. Litigation is seldom responsive to abuses quickly enough to matter, but it strengthens resolve, and slowly convinces the terrified that resistance is not futile. As we saw in the US elections last week, dems are quickly losing support. Continued irrational oppression will guarantee a sweep in congressional elections next year. As the captive incumbents and their propagandists begin contemplating their termination, they'll become more rational. But it won't work. The emotions will inevitably shift from terror to revenge as we figure it out. It might be resolved peacefully. Probably not.

One of the commenters on this video: "Dutch is my native language. The chief physician says: "in principle all patiënts on ICU are vaccinated".
It is the commitment fallacy. Once you put $100 0000 to some pyramid scheme, the eventual next $30 000 request does not feel so bad. You are already committed.
This vaccine business will get even worse once the kids are more less vaccinated by group pressure. Then the parents really are committed!
‘But it would have been so much worse without the vaccines, masks and lockdowns!’
Modern day Goebbels would just love Twitter and Facebook. He would not use fear so much this time. He would use instead the virtue signalling people, embellish and strengthen that mental group pathology. Feed on peoples' desire to be smarter and so special and progressive and tell everybody else online about it!
Obama used this to the max. No "progressive" journalist in the MSM actually checked what the hell his admin did behind the scenes because he was a woke dream come true, a real salvation man. That kind of stuff is dangerous.
This vaccine phenomena started the same way. All of sudden it was a progressive, a woke thing to do, when it was "Trump's dangerous poison vaccine" just few months before. The Biden admin used that mental pathology the same way as Obama in presidential elections to get elected.
If this ends in a good way, there will be still a lot of angry people, committees, testimonies, tons of accusations and investigations, tons of lawsuits, compensations, jail time to a lot of people and "never again" declarations. If in a bad way, a permanent tyrannical left-green wing regimes all over the western world.
Make no mistake about it, this is the largest, most dangerous and most lethal medical catastrophe ever during peace time!
Looks like Germany is heading for natural immunity - despite the politicians' best efforts.
I just hope they won't manage to flatten the curve until fall 2022.
