“Grieving the End of Progress” is excellent at illuminating the elephant in the room.
I’m amazed that I am not depressed. I am still in the bargaining phase although it is clear that denial and siloing makes finding the truth near impossible. WaPo found experts who said that Joe Biden’s speech to Congress was mask — social distance theater since vaccines make COVID-19 risk to participants nil. But this is not true. The Kentucky nursing home breakout with 22 vaccinated patients and workers becoming infected and one dying shows that the mRNA vaccines do not prevent super-spreader events.
Likewise, the spike in Israel Excess Deaths of over 65 who are 90% vaccinated that Doc Robinson linked to is concerning and unexplained.
In the USA, the only alternative to vaccination is isolation at home – avoiding the public – if you can afford it. Or denial and saying the hell with it. Ultimately all are not a viable when hospitalized. Today’s spike in cases in blue regions of Oregon and Washington State show that corporate global progressiveness has failed. For-profit vaccination and government that relies solely on it are failing. The US public health system must be nationalized and the USA put on a war footing to eradicate coronavirus and its variants.
Over a million persons have died in the Western Hemisphere in the pandemic. The present course will end up with South Asia, Europe and the Americas filled with sick and highly unequal States like Brazil with all the chaos that will bring.
