sweden vs the US:
whom should we trust and whose advice should we follow?
the US is about to get a full broadside of new covidian cannonballs as biden appears poised to announce his new “6 prong” approach to covid.
apparently, prongs are now focus group testing better than layers of swiss cheese, but i’ll bet you it’s the same thing.
lock down, mask up, vax-vax-vax, distance, close schools and businesses, and smart money seems to be on a national vaccine passport.
at the very least, they’ll likely push it into critical junctures like the FAA so you must vaxx to fly. this will hamstring americans who resist. there will likely be a “public private partnership” where private business get incentivized for demanding vaccines and penalized for refusing.
booster shots will become mandatory and this will make vaccine passports a document that must be renewed every 6-8 months. it’s no coincidence that the cool kids G7 table from davos is all pushing this. this was always the plan, covid is incidental, and it’s about to get ugly.
this would be ridiculous policy.
these vaccines are non-sterilizing. they have not stopped spread, will not stop spread, and cannot stop spread.
it’s not even clear how well their mitigation of severe cases is holding up once you get out of the halo effect of the initial immune activation.
and the vaxx mandate trend toward forcing the recovered to get a full two dose course of vaccine may actually reduce their overall immunity.
and it’s looking more and more as though they may actually be accentuating covid spread and making the disease itself worse by enabling the vaccinated to act as asymptomatic superspreaders and by altering the gradient of evolutionary selection to allow more harmful variants to persist.
risk from covid is massively stratified by co-morbidity. having none is a 92% risk reducer vs having one or more.
medicine is always and everywhere a cost/benefit decision.
risk varies greatly, your vaccine does not protect me (and may put me at risk). there is no data to support triple dose vaccination or a one size fits some mandate based approach nor any basis for mandates of a product that offers more risk than reward to many.
and the sane countries know this. (for that matter, the sane US FDA vaccine staff know this too and are quitting over the politicization of their agency)
and while disingenuous media loves to try to bag on sweden and misrepresent it as some kind of failure, the facts on the ground tell a very different story.
sweden’s hyper-aggressive counting of covid deaths masks what is one of the most successful outcomes in the world. the true measure of covid and covid response as one public health outcome is to sum everything. this means using all cause deaths.
you died or you didn’t is one of the most clearly delineated outcomes in humanity. it’s also a great measure of overall strategic outcomes because it encompasses ALL trade offs around mortality. (do lockdowns kill? do vaccines? do masks help or hurt or neither? etc)
and comparing sweden to the US is stark.
normal vs the last 5 years:
+14% vs the last 5 years:
that’s the outcome variance.
sweden, denmark, and others are now preparing to drop all covid restrictions.
the US is gearing up to double down on failure and add new ones.
and the track record on who got it right and who got it wrong is stark.
don’t accept this new normal of malicious mandate from the US. it’s creeping fascism, has nothing to do with disease, has been shown not to work over and over, and will only get harder to resist if they get this new round of impositions, restrictions, and limits on life and livelihoods through.
this is not science and never was.
and it’s time it stopped.
states will disobey and nullify vaccine mandates and passports. lawsuits will erupt and outright civil disobedience will kick off.
get involved. bolster resistance and oppose tyranny. be peaceful, but implacable.
accept that there may be pain in the short term, but that going along to get along makes you a part of the problem.
support freedom and boycott those seeking to aid in its abrogation.
refuse to yield.
stand together and stand firm.
it’s time guys.
unless you want a “forever new normal” of subjugation to the bio-fascism/social justice industrial complex, it’s long past time.
one day you will look back on the future that springs from the choices we make in the coming months. make choices you’ll be proud of. make choices your kids will thank you for. you’re gonna have to live with them for the rest of your lives, and the dreams of the defeated vichy or the apathetic bystander are not sweet ones. don’t be that guy.
this society belongs to “we the people”, not “they the authoritarians.”
never let them tell you different.
your are demanding nothing but to keep that which was already yours by right.
