Vaccine efficacy against severe outcomes is the only argument they have left, and it is not enough.
Interesting article as always, but I think you're skipping over a far more crucial point when it comes to the effectiveness of these vaccines. All these comparisons are based on raw unadjusted data, which only makes sense when the unvaccinated demographic serves as a proper control group for the vaccinated population.
When 95% of elderly are vaccinated, as is the case throughout the UK, the remaining 5% who didn't get vaccinated are no longer by any means a proper control group for the ones who did get vaccinated. In the UK, black elderly are much more likely to be unvaccinated. However, black elderly were always far more susceptible to developing severe disease than white elderly anyway.
The remaining elderly who are unvaccinated are almost guaranteed to be a demographic in much worse health than those who did get vaccinated. In other words, the comparison is inherently flawed. There exists no proper control group for the vaccinated population anymore and so to determine the effectiveness of these vaccines our best hope is to simply look into other sources of data, like excess mortality and wastewater RNA analysis.
If you look at those data, I think you'll come to the same conclusion as I did, namely that we already entered negative efficacy territory in the UK. The vaccines work for a few months, in a population where most people remain unvaccinated. By the time most people are vaccinated, the vaccine no longer works. The Motte has already fallen if you know what to look for.
The only reason to take the shots for most people is to temporarily lessen you're already low risk of dying. Presumably. I'm surprised that the govt cares so much about this particular risk: they still let us drink, smoke and drive fast cars. If you listen closely, most politicians don't even actually say *why* we all must get vaccinated: they only say lame platitudes like, "It's the best way to protect yourself" or "It's our best defense," or "we need to work together," without actually making any specific claims. They are relying on the public and media to "fill in" the information with assumptions about it being a sterilizing vaccine, or preventing spread, or enabling things to go back to normal. Then when pressed, just as you say, they retreat to "we never said that."
Excellent as always. I keep returning to the question of why the GINORMOUS CENSORSHIP of EFFECTIVE early treatment? (We know why.) Most of those hospitalizations and deaths (vaccinated or unvaccinated) could have been prevented. The focus should not be on just two options of vax or no vax.
During this entire fake pandemic parade there is one thing I steadfastly believe after 21 months. That is big pharma's experimental mRNA gene therapy nano-particle injections (as well as the other types) are not really experimental, but firmly designed to wreck humanity before humanity knows it is being wrecked. Exactly how and why are still being debated, maybe.
It's a guessing game as to what is going to really happen in the coming months and years, but my guess is that with billions already 'infected' with these injections, the results are going to be horrifying. The viruses have very little to do with anything and are not much more than the seasonal flu that may be more virulent at times.
I am still working on my continued acceptance of "germ theory" since "terrain theory" is making more sense to me as I investigate it. Florence Nightingale once said that there are no diseases, only conditions that cause disease. We don't "catch" cancer, heart disease, lung disease or diabetes...so maybe we don't catch the flu or a cold. They come from within to help cleanse the body of toxins.
My strategy is to lay siege to the Motte; to wait them out. As the truth of the vaccines comes to light, more countries will ban them. Already each of the prestigious Nordic countries has some sort of ban on Moderna. Given what we've learned about how Scandis are able to logically think about Wuhan Virus, it should only be a matter of time until they've banned all the jabs, putting great pressure on other European governments, and emboldening European researchers.
The injections are simply too dangerous for them to get away with it.
The important sentence: "Even if we can’t fully understand all of the reasons, it looks very much like the vaccines merely move risk of hospitalisation and death around, onto unvaccinated populations, while Corona evolves to retain the same level of population-wide virulence."
Soon the honest politicians will say we, the unvaccinated, deserve this as we did not *obey* our betters. In fact, they say it now, only not so bluntly.
Of course, this is counter to last year when "every life mattered." Under that motto, we at the very least would limit the vaccination to only certain groups as a prophylaxis and allow the virus to wear itself out on those at the lower levels of risk. That would seem to be the most longsighted with the least loss of life over the long term. I wonder why I'm not hearing that suggested? (It's okay. That was a rhetorical question.)
Thank you for turning back to essentials. The Post-Modernist origins of the Narrative Driven world we currently live in is poorly understood. The scribblings of Lacan & Foucoult reached their zenith (nadir?) under Derrida (the Darling of the American Academe). All is narrative. Narratives compete. One narrative negates its predecessor. This is the cancer at the core of the Western Civilization's Core. It enables a rebirth of the discredited Marxist weltanschauung as the Oppressor/Oppressed 'Narrative' substituting for the Capitalist/Proletarian polarity.
In discussing this fallacy in terms of Motte & Bailey Game Theory you distill the underpinnings of the political expediencies, the ugly deceptions, used to justify and the most disgusting manifestations of 'The Will To Power' ever perpetrated on an unwilling population.
The need to save Enlightenment Thought is a battle worth engaging. The roots of this poison go deep. They feed on the innate 'goodness' of people to not be labelled: 'Fascist', 'Racist', 'Selfish' or Indifferent to the Welfare of our Common Men/Women. This ruse which underlies the implementation of "The Pandemic", "The Great Reset" & "Building Back Better" must be rooted out. It is likely more than one generation's work... but, it must be done. We must continue to call ignorance, stupidity and greed for what they are... no make what cloak they chose to disguise themselves beneath. --ejd
This is going into the right direction, but we need to hit them even harder. By no means should we accept the bUt FeWeR sEvErE cAsEs AnD dEaThS meme just like that at face value. Remember that there is not just this one virus capable of causing severe and even fatal pneumonia, but on the order of hundreds (most of those critters have never been identified).
Thus, you can level the motte with one swift strike by asking vaxx proponents what the viral pneumonia rates (and corresponding mortality) *irrespective of the causative pathogen* look like for vaxxed vs. unvaxxed, because even if these transfectives were capable of weeding out one particular bug (which is implausible for a multitude of reasons, cf. Influenza vaccines' complete failure stretching over five decades and counting), that's of no use if the other 999 bugs immediately fill this particular niche (think spraying weed killer to exterminate thistles on a flower meadow only to get blackberry tendrils in its stead). Do we tell the dying: "Well, you're about to be shipped off to Hades shortly, but we congratulate you on your SARS-CoV2 test turning out negative"?
As long as dissidents follow pandemic sectarians in their fixation on "cases" (read: irrelevant auxiliary lab findings/labels printed using PCR machines), the best that can be hoped for are temporary partial successes easily undone by the 'new' Science!!! du jour.
Respectfully, you're not going to argue, reason or discourse your way out of this.
So basically the “vaccines” might do what ivermectin and HQL protocols are proven to do except the “vaccines” don’t do it as well, have significant side effect risks and create dander for the unvaccinated. This has to be why the powers that be are turning vaxxing into a religion. They need something powerful enough to suspend objective reality.
It seems like dissenting/skeptical scientists, and the lay people who support them, are in a race against their governments for the data: Will conclusive data become available before they get a shot in every arm? In today's White House Covid-19 Press Briefing, the government apparatchiks were salivating all over themselves about vaccinating the children (smaller needles, check.) There isn't much time left. One would suspect that the "serial passaging" employed by Baric, et al, has been used extensively, at least since the official start of the pandemic, to simulate various courses of action and understand what comes next. They are beginning to act as if time was short.
Good points. Also we should be looking at the overall mortality rate (not just c19) in 2021 vs prior years because since the introduction of vaccines number of excess deaths might have gone up.
The virus attack on Motte is actually underway! Here's why: the latest PHE report shows dramatic rise in cases among the vaccinated that occurred literally in the last 2-3 weeks.
This rise in case will be accompanies by rise in deaths, delayed by 3 weeks behind cases on average. This could take "protection from death" down tremendously in the next UK PHE report.
I explain this here:
The next PHE report is "highly likely" going to show far higher death rates among the vaxxed, simply because the case rates skyrocketed in the previous period and the deaths will surely follow.
Watch for the criminal vaccinators make the dumbest argument of all: "yes the death rates per 100,000 are horrible, but looks at case fatality rates". This is equivalent to hiding in the basement of Motte while gasoline is poured under the door.
"particularly in Western society, where people are not only allowed but even encouraged to develop long-term dependence on medical resources through sedentary habits and poor diet, all of which is still totally fine with everyone."
Absolutely. The vast majority of severe and fatal Covid cases is among those who are metabolically damaged, a result of our modern diet. Modern diet is driven by profit-seeking industries (which drive fief-defending scientists). In a better world, the Covid pandemic would've been a wake-up call to discover and inform people how to be healthier. Unfortunately that didn't happen. A huge lost opportunity.
I think ultimately it's all about the money. You can argue that it's "power", but power and money are hard to disentangle (aside from the occasional psychopath who is truly power-hungry.)
The UK government has check-mated its population. If you don't get a booster, your 2 jabs were for naught. And you're more likely to contract Covid and will be a magnet for flu due to a compromised immune system. If you get the booster you further harm your immune system and Covid will be the least of your worries. Unfortunately, the penny won't drop until it's too late. I've been trying to wake people up on FB as it's the only platform I have but no one gives a shit.
If you're on FB, please give a share or two. I'm sure the page will get nuked at some point anyway so sometimes I wonder why I bother.
Most of the cases I believe are in school age children/young people - those not likely to be hospitalised. We could have potentially have seen the same “case numbers” without impacting hospitalisation with no vaccinations if the “susceptible” in the older generations have already succumbed. I also personally believe the jabs may have an inverse effect long term (for many possible reasons not yet identified)
