We are just glad to be kept abreast of what’s going on. Saw that Italy wants to mandate vaccines for folks over 50 or fine them. So for all the people who believe covid is done....it isn’t.

Unfair for the many millions of us who in our 60's and 70;'s who already have naturally aquired immunity: which I believe I do.

I recently spent three days and nights on a long weekend with my young family members sharing a house, car, pub, and restuarants: - they were all vaccinated, but none of us older and immunocompromised people were.

They both tested positive, none of us did. So I think we already had it in January 2020: it was just like a mild flu.

Both of us remain unvaccinated. However, we both had the virus a month ago. My experience is that it is very strange and debilitating. I still do not feel well. I wouldn't classify it as flu-like. I can't imagine what taking a shot would do in addition to already having the illness.

It seems to affect different people differently: but its hard to work out how exactly. I don't recommend it, but my daughter and her partner (BOTH EARLY 30'S) seem to have made a 100% recovery, as indeed have hundreds of millions of people.

Same here with my wife. Like the first two rounds of covid I had, one in India, and on in Tanzania, this last one, in Feb in Virginia, was the same in one regard. I had symptoms I have never had before in 50 plus years. All three episodes were weak overall, no meds needed, but the symptoms were bizarre. But I continue to travel regardless, no vax needed, plenty of natural immunity to get.

It is even worse if one is able to follow the speeches in the German parliament. The hysteric posturing coupled with a lack of coherent argumentations which some members of parliament displayed is at first hilarious, but on second thought truly frightening.

We descend into a state of ideology, where objective argumentation is impossible.

Unfortunately I see this also privately. Many of my acquaintances are now just repeating verbatim the MSM opinions, and you cannot reach them anymore.

Not only that they do not know anything that may contradict the official narrative; they don't want to know and look with suspicion at anyone who is interested.

One would have thought that e.g. the publishing of the Pfizer internal papers would have lead many to reconsider their opinion of the vaccines. But it fell completely on deaf ears.

Discuss with him the side effects of the vaccines, and tell him that you looked up VAERS or the Pfizer papers.

Looking this material up is suspicious already. After all, only someone who has doubts in the official narrative would do that...

Much of the propaganda of the official narrative is not about giving evidence for its validity, but in ridiculing or demonizing other opinions.

This is now done on many topics (at least here in Germany).

Hence the "red Pill" metaphor is very apt. once someone is willing to question any topic which has an "official narrative", he will see that he has been lied to, and then be open to the possibility that she is lied to in other issues as well.

Many other countries have been pretending that everything is great while cases (UK) and deaths (Denmark) are the highest they've ever been. Which begs the question: why did we have all these restrictions and lockdowns for two years if the cases/deaths are at its highest?

I am actually perfectly ok with pretending that everything is fine if they remove ALL restrictions that were introduced and they strip ALL emergency powers they gained during the past two years.

The ‘mandatory’ focus on 50+ group is happening in a lot of countries - I suspect it is because these people are more likely to push back as they are more comfortable making their own decisions based on data and with a regard for history, some of which they or their parents have lived, rather than younger people who have grown up on social media and lack good reasoning skills and any knowledge of history, apparently

Health costs is the argument they make. and it is easy to make, since costs for health treatment increase with age, for all diseases.

But it is just a ruse to get the mandates to everyone.

The +65 are almost all vaccinated, so now they try to force the next lower age cohort.

after that it will be 30, then 18, then 5, then everyone.

I think Unsure has a point though as well:

My impression in Germany is that most of the millennials are vaccinated now, as this generation is on average very obedient to the state.

While the Gen X tend to be a bit more suspicious. This is also what Howe's "Fourth Turning" mentioned.

I agree entirely with your earlier comments, I think on twatter, that it is just mentally draining to listen to these unprincipled halfwits reciting mantras that even an unprincipled halfwit should be able to see through.

I have built a life here over more than 15 years, that I guess I will now have to leave behind if I ever want to go into a shop without a fucking FFP2 mask on. Or get on a local bus. It doesn't help that the only place Mrs Viv would be prepared to move to is somewhere I don't want to, with double the cost of living on half the salary.

But as fucked up as Germany is now I still can't abandon this. Wherever you go this sword of Damocles now hangs over the entire formerly semi-free world, whenever they can detect this virus (or in a few years some other) on the mucous membranes of sufficient numbers of terminally ill 87 year olds, they can take it all away from you.

It's suspicious how many areas are refusing to completely withdraw all Covid-19 restrictions. With the WHO drawing up plans to take over the medical plans of member states, I'm expecting a worldwide continuation of vaxports and restrictions. It'll be easier for governments to simply point to the WHO as the reason they must enforce them.

Continual denial of early treatment

Two doctors in a rural, poor county document in their book that they treated 7,000 patients with none going to the hospital if they were treated within 7 days. The county is in California, on the border with Mexico and Arizona.

"Overcoming the COVID-19 Darkness: How Two Doctors Successfully Treated 7000 Patients Paperback – January 7, 2022"

They were interviewed on Trial Site News which might be behind a paywall.

https://trialsitenews.com/meet-the-author-overcoming-the-covid-darkness/

Early on in Nov 2020 when they had treated 1,700 patients successfully, Brian Tyson spoke at the Calif Supreme Court and said that there is early treatment that works, no need to be afraid, can go back to school, etc. No mention of IVM or HCQ. Got 400,000 views in 4 hours on Facebook and then it was taken down. Just one of the many examples of suppression.

One would think with the increases in cases and vax not working that they would look to early treatment. All of their patients were in person and they used X rays for diagnosis and treatment similar to the cocktails l like Peter Mccullouch or flccc.net.

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fitd.2021.788188/full: "Sharia Perspectives of COVID-19 Vaccines" (2021.12.21)

From the Islamic point of view, preserving life is aligned with preserving religion. Muslims who refuse to receive COVID-19 vaccines may be regarded as acting against Sharia law. Yet Halal certification is only one of many issues that may affect vaccine uptake. The anti-vaccination movement, concerns about long term side effects, accessibility and mis-information pose additional challenges. Effective scientific discourse and communication, including regular engagement with Islamic law scholars, Ulamas, and national regulatory agencies, will be critical for achieving vaccination targets.

Individual decisions about accepting COVID-19 vaccines are multifactorial. The Halal issue may pose a significant challenge amongst Muslim populations. Fatwa councils worldwide have used both sharia and scientific approaches to grant Halal certificates for COVID-19 vaccines. Yet there have been inconsistencies across regions. For example, the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is considered Haram by the Indonesian council but Halal by other councils. Nonetheless, all fatwa councils agree that vaccines are necessary in the context of our current pandemic, and thus receiving a COVID-19 vaccination is actually a form of compliance with Sharia law. Broader use of ACF reagents during manufacturing may further increase acceptance among Muslims.

Israel is the worst today I met a store owner who either vaccinated or had to shut his business down. Never heard of the Nuremberg code or the fact that Pfizer was the most criminal corporation on the face of the earth. I reminded him that Prime Minister Bennent only got 5% of the vote and his is a coalition government and the health minister is obviously a clown but is the dictator everyone follows without question never met such a sheepish bunch of people in my life, The attitude is it’s the law and we must follow it and there’s no question as to who is making the law or why it should be followed because of the whims of a coalition government health minister. if you order these people into the trains headed for Auschwitz I’m sure they would all go unquestioningly. Beyond sad. i’m sure 95% of the Jewish adult population was vaccinated and their media which they implicitly trust for some reason have not clued them in to the fact that the vaccines have failed spectacularly and that their nation is singled out as being particularly unsuccessful in stopping Covid.

I feel for you, E. I live in a U.S. deep blue state & fully expect a return to tyranny sometime before our elections in Nov. And certainly after, if our horrible Governor wins re-election.

But I’m scratching my head, as Faux-Xi resurfaces from under his rock to tell us that this isn’t over, we’ll need to be “flexible” about reinstating masks & possibly lockdowns due to new (but innocuous) “variants”.

The confusion comes because @ the same time, the rats are scrambling off the sinking Wu-Flu ship to now agree that none of it worked or made sense (trying now to switch jerseys, as if they hadn’t been braying for “harder & faster” the past 2+ years).

Keep see-sawing the “rights” & “freedoms” that, as you say, are now merely seasonal privileges to be granted & then yanked.

Maybe the confusion is the point…?

Agreed. As evidenced also by the cretins still wearing masks anywhere, but esp in the open air & in their cars.

When things started to ease up, I felt some relief but as I watch what our betters do & hear what they say, I take it all w/ deep suspicion & a huge boulder of salt
