Karl Lauterbach is probably the worst health minister Germany has ever had. He is also a very stupid person. He really, really wants you to worry about Omicron, but every day Omicron fails to be worrisome. Even as cases surge, hospitalisations remain more or less flat, and official Corona deaths remain well below their peak in 2021, if anything on a slight downward trend.
When we, as sane, civilized human beings who built Western civilization, become fully tired of the moronic lunatics we have allowed to infest our governments, this will end swiftly. A new liberty movement is growing and will end with the trash being taken out.
What shocks me, although by this point it should not, is that not even everyone on "our side" understands that vaccination is a fool's errand. I think it always was, but now the reasons--which are relatively obvious when one understands the MoA of the mRNA treatments--are being widely expressed across the spectrum. And yet, vaccine mandates continue, almost unabated? WTAF?
Yes you can get a cold more than once. You can not vaccinate against a common cold, it has been tried for 100 years and has not worked. How are we going to tell that to these people?
PS I got a warning from security browse, that your site is very dangerous.... would i want to proceed? Yes.
'Corona policies have always been absurd'. 100% true because the policies were never about health or well being, only about control.
This is completely on display in the Canadian city, Ottawa where the Freedom2022 protest continues. I live about 5 hours away, attended that protest and a 2nd in Toronto this past Saturday. Even though the vaccines in general are not very effective, not very safe and omicron is not very dangerous, countries are lifting covid mandates and even some Canadian provinces have started to lift mandates, the local police, local government and federal government continue to escalate to the point of INSTIGATING violence rather than sit down and discuss matters with the protesters who remain peaceful.
It's not about health, it's about a QR code that is meant to identify and track us all.
If Lauterbach is truly this uninformed about the basic science surrounding the vaccines, covid and the immune system, he should be removed from office and locked up where he can't do further damage. If he's so stupid that he believes the old vaccines have any value at this point and if he is not aware of the potential dangers to the immune system, he should be removed from office and locked up where he can't do further damage. It is getting pretty intolerable to listen to this idiocy any longer. Do they all have brain damage?
One of the reasons I think we feel so pained by utterances like those produced by Lauterbach is that we appear to live in not just a post-modern world but also a post-logical one. I lived in central Europe for several years and I know how important it is for things to "make sense", to be penetrable by thinking. In the UK with its pragmatism this is less the case; if something works that's kind of fine, even if it's crazy or not-understood.
The great Hannah Arendt, herself originally German, understood intimately this need for thought. She identified one hallmark of those who fall under the spell of totalitarianism, the inability to think. Though the thinking of academics or intellectuals was not what she had in mind; rather that everyday normal often untutored ability to raise a question mark towards any and every thing until it "makes sense". Arendt identified the inability to think in Adolf Eichmann, the unprepossessing balding bureaucrat who organised the "final solution" of the Jews under the Nazis. He was no more questioning of a request to organise the elimination of millions of human beings than he would have been of one to organise Hitler's birthday party. The methods he found were what counted. The outer insane evil never even occurred to him. He could construct things, but he could not think.
One doesn't have to be an Eichmann to fall into this category. Not thinking is also a state of comfort; even if thinking itself doesn't hurt, some of the thoughts we have, their ramifications, can be painful, as all of us who have penetrated the Covid disaster with our own thinking can testify.
I don't know Lauterbach; but I know politicians. They know it is not their role to think. Their role is to sell to the public the thoughts and plans of others. The less they can think, the easier it is for them to follow the script.
In Covid times this unthinkingness has reached extreme levels. I can feel eugyppius' pain. But I also think we are long past the time when logic and argument are going to make any difference; as I said, we are post-logic. Covid fascism was established through the feeling life, through fear. So maybe it can be dismantled also through the feelings? Maybe we should ask: what feeling do you think the establishment could not resist if a majority of the people (including themselves) felt it strongly? Confidence and trust in life is one. Any other suggestions ...
I sympathise with those trying to report on all this nonsense from a rational point of view, using clear arguments and logic. This must be wearisome to say the least. The simple fact is that the vaccine campaigns failed spectacularly, so much so that the majority cannot admit the simple fact because they are too heavily invested in their own mistake.
And so they twist ever more absurd knots out of the evidence until it resembles a Jackson Pollack.
Whilst I have no doubt your health minister is bad (they all seem to be!), I would still keep an eye on omicron or future variants due to the fact the virus came from a lab. Omicron is more mild but how will the vaccinated fare against future variants trying to circumnavigate their specific, targeted protection.
What is your view on the current deaths in Israel?
Hello to E and everyone,
Not sure how many will read this comment, but if you are in the European Union, please consider responding to this public consultation:
This is a public consultation on the European Commission's proposal to extend the EU Digital COVID Certificates. Essentially, it creates a framework for interoperability for the Member States to operate their national vaccine passports. While the EU cannot oblige MS to utilise the system, it has proven a useful political tool for those who wish to normalise QR codes as a gateway to public life.
This is the same guy who opined on some German talk show that vaccinated Germans has been “cautious” and that there is a now a need to jab the non—vaxxed now to teach them a “lesson.” That then is the endgame for him, undermining everything Covid he has to say. The lesson we learned is that we were the cautious ones.
Slightly off topic, this makes me wonder about the years and years of annually-customized flu vaccines so many of us have been getting.
The mildness of Omicron is indeed truly dangerous...to the narrative of those constructing the scaffolding of the New World Order that 2 of the harridans in NZ and Australia inadvertently revealed. Without it, they will have to resort to brute force, as Canada's cowardly PM is in the process of doing.
Great photo , he looks like a fine robust specimen of sapien , his ancestors would be proud of their offspring .
Lauterbach versus Tegnell of Sweden. Sigh.
So, if I understand this correctly - they like the original spike-vaccine, because that protects you against the scary Alpha & Delta type strains, and Omicron is mild so it doesn't matter if its protective or not?
But I was under the impression that people who got Omicron generated neutralizing antibodies to both Omicron and Delta? Or is that not correct? I have heard all kinds of theories; including that the best booster to 2 mRNA shots is a dose of Omicron (virus); and that was from a pro-mandate epidemiologist...
Question about the study about Omicron antibody response: Brian Mowrey writes that there may be a problem with that study in that the samples they tested for seroconversion were taken too quickly after infection, not giving enough time for seroconversion to occur. Normally seroconversion can take 3 weeks or a month to complete. Do you see any truth to that objection? https://unglossed.substack.com/p/original-antigroundhogic-sin
