What Price Covid Conformity?

St. Anthony, pray for us.

For most of us, the worst part of the current social environment created by the Covid-Climate-Party (CCP) government regarding the Covid vaccine regimen is what it is doing to families. Siblings no longer talk to one another. Parents and their children no longer are on speaking terms. Families are preventing themselves from getting together. Even though the government has been forced to back-off their mandates (due to lacking any authority to enact them) people still act as though these "vaccines" are necessary.

The CDC has stated, many times now, that the vaccine does not prevent transmission, infection, or reinfection. Hence, no medical reason for vaccine mandates, or even voluntary vaccine administration, exists, with the possible exception that a vaccine may reduce one’s own reaction to the virus, if infected. They’ve stated that masks are not useful in combatting a virus. They’ve let us know that no medical or scientific reason for the six-foot social distancing rule ever existed. The former White House coronavirus response coordinator even has let us in on her little secret that “[She] knew these vaccines were not going to protect against infection," while mandating them anyway, at the cost of jobs, careers, families, prosperity, education, futures, and lives.

For those who have been subscribing to every pronouncement of the CDC since “two weeks to flatten the curve,” this ought to be enough. But, somehow, it is not. Families, children, parents, siblings are still suffering from separation and lack of human interaction based on nothing more than what, realistically, only can be called “superstition.” As above and per the CDC, the science of this vaccine… is that it does not protect others.

The blessed Rochelle.

What is happening is that the higher the vaccination rate, the higher the infection rate. Insurance companies across the nation and in Europe are reporting huge, unprecedented numbers of “excess deaths,” a term and a category none of us knew existed two years ago. Per the FDA: “The clinical trials of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine found that the all-cause mortality rate of the vaccinated group was higher than that of the control group.” This is the opposite of what is expected due to the increased tendency of people concerned about their health to get vaccinated.

Why are people acting this way? If one wants to get the vaccine – get it. If not, don’t. But as no medical reason exists for it insofar as protecting others, mandates – even personal, family “mandates” have zero medical purpose for those around you.

We talk nowadays about “virtue signaling” as though these are just childish efforts to let others know how wonderful the signalers are, as if these bumper stickers, yard signs, masks, etc., do not affect the family, community, or country. In fact, these seemingly innocuous and, to thinking adults, childishly silly, efforts are splitting apart families, communities, nations. Which, of course, is the goal of the same left demanding public and forceful acceptance of all kinds of idiocy today.

But the vaccines are not just a “virtue signal.” Pfizer’s own documentation to the CDC showed that the first 89 days of their vaccine resulted in 42,000 adverse events, including 1,223 deaths. Current surveys by professional polling firms (and here) paint a picture of tens of thousands of deaths from these experimental,  medically unnecessary, and dangerous vaccines.  In September, 2022, a healthy woman who was injected after waiting in a pharmacy line dropped dead 15 minutes after her injection; “dead before she hit the floor” per a doctor; yet people remained in the line at the pharmacy to get THEIR injections. Daily we see reports of young men and women “unexpectedly” dropping dead – while making a speech, doing standup comedy, playing professional soccer, broadcasting the news, or just taking a nap.

Why submit to it? Knowing that the vaccines can have serious and sometimes fatal consequences and that they serve no medical purpose, people are nonetheless accepting these injections as the result of societal pressure to conform. The flip side of a yard sign is acting on its message yourself.

Most people desire status and seek it among their peers; status-seeking is what virtue-signaling is about. This is why the Overton Window continually moves left – as society drifts leftward due to pressure from media, academia and government bureaucracies, people concerned about their status take actions for no other reason than to increase their status amongst the elites. It is a collectivist response to a societal need or demand.

The argument of the pro-vaccine crowd is that all vaccines cause some deaths. True. When confronted with the fact that the swine flu vaccine was pulled from nine States after only three deaths, their response often is to look at the numbers, the percentages: so many more people have been vaccinated against Covid-19 it is logical that more people have died, that nothing is out of the ordinary. We should accept that medical progress happens in fits and starts and, yes, some will die.

But this looks only at one side of a many-sided equation. The swine flu killed healthy people, starting with a 19-yr-old private in Army basic training. Covid kills the old, the infirm, those with significant comorbidities. “Myocarditis” was a word with which nearly none of us were familiar in 2020; today we all know it. Many European nations have pulled the mRNA vaccines entirely for those below 30 years of age due to the post-injection instances of myocarditis.  Young, healthy people, aged 5-25, are so unlikely to have a serious reaction to a Covid-19 infection that their Infection-Fatality-Rate (IFR) is recorded in thousandths of a percent: 0.0051. The comparison to swine flu is inapt.

Our Lady of the Scarves.

If one has no children, for example, saying that healthy young males with a vanishingly low probability of serious infection or death ought to be vaccinated – when they may die or get a prion disease from it – is  one thing. If that child is yours, asking or demanding that they accept a vaccine that may destroy, or end, their lives, is an entirely different story: no thinking person would do so.

But it gets worse. Young adults just making their way in their careers still are prevented from joining their peers in the offices or conferences of some major companies. Working from home is great if you are mid-career, or past. When you are an energetic kid desiring interaction with peers and seniors in your business, climbing your way up the ladder, when you want to learn from, meet with, and present your work to others – and cannot because of an anti-science demand to take the risk of killing yourself or developing a palsy – you might just check out, depriving your company, yourself, your future all the positives that you, and they, had hoped your career would bring. It might end your career as you just decide to remove yourself from the corporate idiocy that may – literally – kill you while protecting no one.

What is the cost, then, to society of this loss of human capital, this deprivation to a young man or woman of their career and the dreams and hopes it once held for them? Answer: Inestimable. Yet this is what we are doing as a society to ourselves, to our families, to our future. To our nation. It is both inexcusable and inexplicable. Unless they want it that way...
