I read your response and I see the big picture. Thank you.Lots of newsworthy things don't make it to the light of day (far worse than covid right now is the state of agriculture, very little covered in the corporate news of that fact). More to the point, hospitals are a business as well, just like prisons, and whether government, profit, or non-profit, they're all trying to be profitable. The average mid 60-high 70 percent occupancy at all times. Lots of dynamics going on that fill the beds up during covid. Fewer nurses because they were fired or burnt out and left, turning patients away (with no early treatment) till they got bad enough for a bed, payments for certain procedures and for reporting data a specific way have all made this a shit show.
Pharma is a corporate beast. The corporate beast model is in the process of destroying all small farms. Small farms (even large private farms to a great extent) are not "get rich" money-making ventures. Farmers farm because they are people of the soil, or like the connection with the earth, and have a lot of autonomy. At the end of the day, a corporation's primary function is returning a profit to its shareholders. More to the point, about the best product, there are lots of reasons to question whether mRNA is even a decent product at this point. Considering how much news coverage on corporate media has been "Brought to you Pfizer", AND that the top shareholders own pharma and media, that should be a very big indicator that the corporate media is unfit to be the fourth estate. What happened to the good liberals that were quick to check corporate corruption and government collusion?
Yes and those 50-74 yo per the CDCD data had 4 or more comorbidities. They were sickly and pharma dependent. It's tragic, it very much is. My family, my wife's family, friends, we all know lots of people who fall in that category. We need to correct the course of this ship. There are too many sickly people on this planet who are further ******* up our water and soil. Nature has a solution, let her work.
Not tricky at all. The natural course of virus evolution is to become more transmissible and less virulent. Of course, the case could be made since this is a lab-created freak, natural doesn't apply. Pfizer exec Dr. Bourla has stated that there is little if any protection from Omicron with 2 doses. The WHO has stated that "if mandatory vaccination is to be considered necessary then there should be sufficient evidence that the vaccine is efficacious in preventing serious infection and/or transmission" and that for Omicron they noted "there is as yet no such evidence " and "the data we do have suggests opposite". In fact, it appears Omicron prefers the vaccinated.
If you are healthy, you have very little chance of ending up hospitalized. Flu and colds ****; no way around that. Yes, I see lots of sick people (most happen to be vaccinated). I am in a network of more than a hundred unvaccinated people, all active in conversation, and few are ill, compared to our observations of the vaccinated.
I didn't bring religion into the discussion. I certainly got a bit metaphorical. I like good audio and have come her for help on projects. I am afflicted with a desire for material just like the rest of us. I also recognize the by which spell we, en mass, seem to be burdened. I am ok with all that being swept away if it means we all get right with our relationships with man, spirit, nature and we use technology in accordance with nature's processes. In short, using it to be better stewards to Gaia and better to each other.
In any case, as unlikely as it is for either of us to reverse our perspectives of what is going on, I do suggest you stock up on food. Even IF the covid world fades away back to some pre-covid normalcy (which I'd argue is not possible/bigger changes than even 9/11), global food production is on the cusp of collapse. The shelves MAY get restocked generally speaking, but I wouldn't expect it. In fact, I'd expect hungry pets and children and no words to explain the hunger pangs away. The cities and suburbs are but weeks away from starvation once it really becomes evident that a bigger problem is afoot.
