  1. NOT "because of Covid", instead because of compelled interventions. Because of - the anti-science, unnecessary, sacrificial, one size for all, policy of lockdowns etc. thrust on everyone in a supposed causation from Covid. What's human-constructed (or -forced) did not 'have to be'. What's metaphysical, a virus, "had to be". I was considering if there isn't some detectable Categorical Imperative behind 1. universal lockdowns and 2. universal vaccinations. A universal law. *Act only according to that maxim by which you can also will that it become a universal law*. I.Kant From one to all. Isn't that maxim what we see going on?

  2. Actually, some of us - I'm one - can, and I did, have alarm bells ringing loudly immediately upon reading a description of how these mRNA experimental "jabs" (not, properly speaking, vaccines) work. I'd no more willingly comply with the experiment than take up juggling with lit sticks of dynamite for a hobby. The way things are going with results, my immediate "no way, short of at gun point" reaction looks more and more justified. And we haven’t gotten to long-term damage yet, or to what's being done to fetal development. There have been a good number of miscarriages. What will be the results for pregnancies brought to term…?? I think it is terrible to give the mRNA jabs to children. Reckless endangerment of the child's future development. The situation is nothing like protecting a child from deadly or crippling diseases. I'm no way opposed to vaccines against polio, smallpox, rubella, diphtheria…. I had polio, before there was a vaccine. Would that there had been a vaccine and I'd gotten it. I'd have been spared life-long physical troubles which are worsening (post polio). I am not an anti-vaxxer. But: I think that these mRNA things are proving to be a medical catastrophe - along with being a statist's bonanza. Regarding the latter - Tony, I think that you've been doing a really good job of spelling out the difference between rational self-interest and service to the collective. Bravo. Ellen

  3. Deep State Follies (including the Biden junta) The Biden admin is a product of the Deep State. The Deep State was behind stealing the 2020 election. So this thread is for lampooning losers like Comey, Brennan, & Co., but also the entire Biden junta. Impression fun is good for a start. Michael

  4. The biggest worry I have is how tamed by fear a people can get, and proportionately how the governments take over their individual power, to make them feel less afraid. Repression creeps up on us by increments. Find 'a group', nominate them as the cause of our fears and problems, give them inferior status, segregate them from society and any functions, put an identifying mark on them and this can happen: "Things happened very slowly".

  5. Blow darts. That's the solution. Blow darts from drones. And throw in the Nazi Jewish star for good measure. James O'Keefe strikes again.

I want to comment, but this guy, Taylor Lee, is so loopy, he speaks for himself. The problem is he is an FDA Economist. The FDA is hiring people like that guy! Dayaamm!

Let's quote some of it here: And there is this beauty: It's hard to criticize something like that. What can one expose when it's all on the nose and flaunted? You have bigotry, sheer evil, sheer ignorance, and insanity all mixed together and sitting in a position of power in the US government.

  7. I'm only happy I don't need to decide these actions today for my youngster. Unvaccinated children will be stigmatized and separated from normal lives as will and are adults. One is "both" doing good for 'society' - and for one's kid? For polio, smallpox, etc I'd perhaps agree. Only as a secondary benefit, one might be reducing the overall national rate of spread by .0001 % (say) and may take small self-credit for that. On a rational value-hierarchy, one's child's life and well-being is plainly the overwhelming, prime value and responsibility. Both motives then are far, far from equal. But Covid19 is not smallpox. A child today isn't in danger from it directly. His/her risk-benefit equation tilts heavily the other way. Who says we say nothing, Peter? I believe you are imagining this from a very limited sampling, and no one is antivaxx on principle on OL. There is also not a sign of intimidation from O'ist quarters to not be vaxxed. The opposite, that I've seen by Y Brook. You keep returning to this rationally medical thing as though rationality and medical rationality are distinct entities. For me, when I inevitably get jabbed, less for reasons of (my presently, pretty good) immune system - and more for the incoming coercion/blackmail by govt. and businesses which would - otherwise - limit my free movement, I will say I have, without embarrassment.

  8. The videos of January 6 are finally coming out. Videos like this are what the Biden thugs are trying to suppress. This is what the vast majority of the "invasion" of the capitol looked like on January 6. Jan 6 Protesters Enter The Capitol With NO Apparent Resistance RUMBLE.COM The Biden DOJ tried to suppress this video which shows January 6 protesters entering the Capitol with no apparent resistance from a multitude of cops and armed security. Go on, look at it if you believe there was a real insurrection on January 6. Look at it. And look at Dinesh D'Souza's comment. Dinesh D'Souza on GETTR GETTR.COM The Biden DOJ tried to suppress this video which shows January 6 protesters entering the Capitol with no apparent resistance from a multitude of cops and armed... Wait until all the videos come out that the DoJ has bee suppressing. Talk about a made-up riot. The mainstream media has been perpetrating a scam in cahoots with the ruling class criminals now in power. At least the truth is coming out and a resultant day of reckoning is coming... Michael

  9. The answer is both. Consider something guys and dolls. Why do you think few fans of Rand on OL advocate or even "say," they have gotten the vaccine? One reason may be the intimidation factor. Perhaps, if they do the rational thing medically they will not be appreciated by those communicating on OL . . . so they say nothing.

  10. Peter, I'm saying this as an epistemological observation, not as the tug of war that has been going on in this thread. I honestly don't see where you yourself "follow the medical science." The best I have seen you present is that you say you trust people who say they trust the science. And you do as they say. But as to actual science, I haven't see you post any or discuss any. And plenty of actual science has been posted on this thread. Just off the top of my head, I posted a compilation by Sharyl Attkisson of hundreds of scientific papers. I've presented the guy who invented the mRNA technology used in the current vaccines (Dr. Robert Malone) explaining how it works. I've presented a lot of science. But you never comment about it. You only comment about people who are at least one step removed from the science (like your local physicians, the news, etc.), and usually a lot more steps. Then you throw the name Rand into the mix. But that doesn't work as science. In my view, if you want to keep telling people to follow the science, why not take a look at the science? The battle I see you engaged in is mostly rhetorical, not scientific. Even the call for people to "follow the science" is rhetoric since virus and vaccine science itself is never discussed in that context. And, to be fair, I see a lot of rhetoric in opposition when you post. So, if that brings satisfaction, I have no problem with it. Keep on keeping on. Rhetoric is one way ideas are brought to the surface with a dose of emotion so people can look at them and decide for themselves. But I have to make clear for readers that science will not choose a rhetorical side. Science, when done correctly, unveils truths about reality. It's purpose is not to win or lose arguments. Nor is its purpose to tell others what they should or should not do. How about scientists? Heh. Scientists as a group is another matter. Scientists are humans and are vulnerable to being flawed in the same manner all humans are (vanity, cognitive biases, struggle for standing, etc. etc. etc.). There are equally accredited scientists at odds right now over vaccines. Epistemologically, listening to a scientist from one side or the other is not the same thing as looking at the actual science. And there is science on this thread. For those interested, please look at it. Granted, I don't go deep since I am not a scientist. My perspective starts from being a layperson. That means the science I have presented has mostly been that which can be understood by laypeople. And other people have presented items of science in this thread, too. Usually with the same qualification. But, as an epistemological trap, there have been a lot of proclamations and statistics from both official organizations and those opposing thrown about as science. For those who want to identify correctly, beware of those (all sides). On a personal note, you took the vax, I did not. Health-wise, we are both safe and sound so far. I hope this continues. You are a friend and I wish you nothing but well. If, in the future, you are objectively proven to be right and I wrong in our different conclusions, and this kept you safe, I would feel nothing but relief and pleasure. I have seen nothing that convinces me to change my conclusions so far, but that thought comes from the heart. Michael

  12. Objectively speaking, the choice is clearly an ethical one - your rational self-interest. One knows the facts, or everyone should from online - who is most or slightly vulnerable, and whom the infection leaves totally untouched - and make informed choices from there, by one's "value hierarchy" (here, health risk/benefit): https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-data/investigations-discovery/hospitalization-death-by-age.html The worst part is seeing the governments pressuring vaccinations on those in the population who, the bulk of, are completely healthy and don't need it. This is altruistic sacrifice- we will make you do good for everyone's good. You are too dumb to know what you need. Then 'capitalist' businesses and corporations, some voluntarily jumping on the Woke bandwagon, some being forced, to intimidate employees into vaccinating, acting as agents and stooges for the Gvt. Why children must be involved, and their parents comply, not for their kids' own health safety but for the broad, 'communal' safety - to cut the spread - placing them at unknown future risk by vaccination when 99.99 of children will shrug off infections at near zero risk (and gain natural immunity) - is a sign of things to come. Our individual rights and freedoms are being willingly sacrificed by fellow citizens and government using vaccinations as justification. I am all for vaccines, in case it needs saying. But. The Objective "good": For whom? For what purpose?

  13. I'm a capitalist I like products from companies when they are liable for defects or negligence. I like medical products that are proven safe, not proclaimed. I'd throw all that out of the window if I were afraid fro my life.
