First Snow in Bavaria: Open Thread
Also note this new paper in Nature, on Discriminatory Attitudes Against the Unvaccinated During a Global Pandemic. From the abstract:
We quantify discriminatory attitudes between vaccinated and unvaccinated citizens in 21 countries, covering a diverse set of cultures across the world. Across three conjoint experimental studies (N=15,233), we demonstrate that vaccinated people express discriminatory attitudes towards the unvaccinated, as high as the discriminatory attitudes suffered by common targets like immigrant and minority populations. In contrast, there is an absence of evidence that unvaccinated individuals display discriminatory attitudes towards vaccinated people, except for the presence of negative affect in Germany and United States. We find evidence in support of discriminatory attitudes against the unvaccinated in all countries except Hungary and Romania and find that discriminatory attitudes are more strongly expressed in cultures with stronger cooperative norms.
We knew this already, but it’s always useful to have papers in major journals to hand for the I Fucking Love Science faithful.
Nietzsche says that what people really love is cruelty. The antivaxxer hate campaigns gave them license. And they took it.

Wait until studies on shedding start pouring in.
