“Get vaccinated!” he whispered. So ended an address in which President Biden stoked fear, anger, and resentment in support of his latest pandemic policy measures.
The toughest sell was his plan to have private employers “nudge” Americans to submit to vaccines with no long-term track record, and which do an imperfect job against a low lethality disease.
Today’s pertinent disclaimer: We’re both vaccinated (Moderna). In the months since, however, we’ve felt uneasy under the bombardment of a single, univocal message: This is now a “Pandemic of the Unvaccinated.” Only The Vaccine can resurrect Life as Normal. Could The Vaccine be just the latest product and instrument of the public-private partnership we call “CronyCare”?
Yes, I’m back again, rebooting Don’t Let It Go (Unheard). The usual time will probably be later in the day on Saturdays, but tomorrow we’ll be interviewing Professor Mattias Desmet, who is in the Central European Timezone, so we’ll start a bit earlier. We’ll be discussing his psychological perspective on the pandemic era, including his view of what the real problem of this crisis is, and his suggestions for solving it. I hope you can join us!
Update: The show recording is available on YouTube here:
If for some reason there are technical difficulties, or if you can’t make it for the live show, don’t worry, I’ll make the recording available later. Looking forward to seeing some of you in the chat tomorrow!
