A Threat to Those Previously Immortal?

I am neither critical of those who are vaccinated nor of those who are not. However, I am critical of hypocritical politicians who try to tell the public how deathly serious covid is, and try to set up mandates that do not apply to them and their social lives. I am critical of the administrators and the press that seek to propagate fear, yet are perfectly fine with (and silent about) opening borders and welcoming persons, even transporting some place to place, although some have covid and are not mandated to be quarantined. Understand, my point has nothing to do with immigration, but rather, there are questions every American, regardless of differing views, ought to be asking a corrupt government that speaks out of both sides of its mouth.

I am also critical of the way some have become irrationally fearful of this virus. Mind you, I’m not saying it isn’t serious. But I know of people who are so afraid that they are fearful to go out, who are critical of those who aren’t vaccinated—to the point those who aren’t vaccinated find no welcoming into their homes. “People are dying from this stuff,” they say. What? Were we a bunch of immortals before covid? Did covid somehow bring about death, something we knew nothing about previously? Yes, the virus is serious. Yes, people have died. But are people dying all around us like bugs who were just visited by the Orkin man?

“But man, covid kills people!” So do gangs in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, but these are still thriving cities. So does influenza, but it isn’t feared like covid. So does heart disease, but McDonald’s is still a thriving business. And so do drunk drivers, but there’s no outrage against others who choose to drink.

Indeed, if covid was like a virus that created raging, irrational zombies like we see in movies, by all means, get vaccinated and stock up on ammo. But this isn’t the reality of covid. No, don’t treat it lightly, but don’t lose your head or your freedoms because of it. 

Does covid kill people! Yes, in some cases. But I hate to break it to you, but we were never mortal before this. Whether we catch covid or not, we are going to die someday, somehow, so stop behaving stupidly over this. Whether you are vaccinated or not makes no difference to me. But if you know you have it, don’t be stupid, stay away from others. If you’re older and have enjoyed your life, stop being critical of your children and grandchildren if they refuse to be vaccinated. They have every right to be suspicious as to why a government is so eager to get everyone vaccinated, to the point of bribing and threatening. Are you so self-preoccupied with yourselves you don’t care about them? Will there prove to be detrimental effects ten or twenty years down the road? On the flip side, don’t criticize those who get vaccinated. This, too, is a right and privilege. 

More than anything, ask more questions. I do not have the answers to covid. All I know is over the last several years, more and more people are checking their brains at the door, mindlessly trusting a government filled with liars having a lust for money and power, bringing forth nothing but division and chaos to a people they’re supposed to represent and defend. There is so much conflicting information concerning covid and threats against some of our personal and Constitutional freedoms. How disgraceful, regardless of affiliations, to behave like stupid children following the tune of the Pied Piper.

[Note: Do not assume either I have or haven’t been vaccinated based on this article. The truth might or might not surprise you. I could disclose, but it isn’t anyone’s business, just as it’s none of mine if you have or haven’t.]

Is Character Dependent on Vaccination?

How is it that in a society that often speaks against bullying and “hate speech” has grown quite comfortable with mean-spiritedness? Name calling, slandering, demonizing, and ostracizing have become commonplace and seemingly justifiable. This is no less true when it comes to the current vaccinations. 

I have friends who have been vaccinated, some who have not yet done so, and those who staunchly refuse to be —each having their own reasons. Yet, each are vilified for their decisions. But I ask, is a person’s character truly determined on the basis of whether they have been vaccinated or not?

I know of persons who have been vaccinated. As a result, they’ve been ostracized by some for their decision, labeled as “sheeple,” etc. On the flip side, those who refuse are criticized as being conspiracy theorists, uncaring, selfish, etc. However, just because a person is vaccinated, does this make him a mindless follower? Or just because a person refuses to get vaccinated, does this make him one who is void of compassion? Is vaccination the determining factor if one is a kind person who will lift you up if you fall? No? Then why are people so quick to criticize?

I have had medical personnel from Mayo Clinic tell me the seriousness of COVID. This being the case, if persons are vaccinated for the sake of peace of mind, are they merely followers? On the other hand, there are many legitimate questions surrounding COVID. Are persons bad for not trusting our government (it has not exactly shown itself to be trustworthy)?

Vaccination is a personal and private matter. Furthermore, persons should not be pestered or ostracized for their decision on the matter—especially when it comes to their character or intelligence being called into question. One can be a person of integrity or a bona fide jerk whether he is vaccinated or not. May we be respectful of person’s decisions in such matters.
