Illmatic Posted October 28, 2020 Share Posted October 28, 2020 37 minutes ago, Velma said: I listened to Neil Oliver, the archaeologist and historian, who seemed totally disgruntled by the encroaching police state and wondered how we can ever get back from this? But he made a good point, in that we are being systematically demoralised, deliberately by these bizarre restrictions, until we are too weak and browbeaten to resist. What he didn't say is that this tactic is to make people beg for the vaccine, just to get their damn life back. Although, we know that won't happen, because governments never relinquish power and one vaxx will never be enough. I really don't know where this is all going to go Velma. As more and more jobs are lost and the second unsustainable lockdown comes in, dissent is surely going to grow and just keep growing. We've already seen the chaos in Italy where the people have lost faith. They're not going to convince people who already have massive bad will toward the whole thing to take a vaccine, least of all if the only benefit of this is being blessed with a dystopian "new normal" and not the old normal normal we all used to have. It makes me think, surely they're not that stupid...? Or maybe they are. I hope so. My worry heading into the new year is that if we get widescale looting and rioting and people will no longer entertain vaccines and immunity passports even western countries will just power ahead regardless Chinese style, sending in the tanks to crush resistance and sending round troops to forcibly vaccinate people in their homes, while telling the last few still listening to them "it's the only way, we know what's good for you". Who knows, it's not going to be easy that's for sure. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
