It's the new normal. If you think Covid is bad, wait just a little longer for diseases that have been frozen in the Earth's glaciers for thousands of years to start spreading as the poles continue melting.

But... you brought up dems and Trump by name, not the Labour party and Boris. I'm certainly sorry that things weren't great in the UK either, yet this contradicts your speaking for the USA and what I presume is the global left, not the thing you say you can only speak for?
That was in response to someone saying that it all started with the new administration, so I was pointing out that I remember there was vaccine hesitancy (it was a CNN interview with Kamala Harris specifically) with the old administration too, and it just happened to be the same people who became advocates a minute after the election. As I've said before, I'm not into the whole left/right thing I think they're both equally corrupt, so when I speak in those terms it's just for clarity rather than some sort of agenda.

Someone shall gather the six infinity stones variants of covid and snap their finger, then everything shall be as it was before.

P.S.
Sorry about the bad joke, just couldn't resist given the title. I think it's a nice addition to the various wacky theories XD

This is all well and good (though again, easy to clear up as in my previous post), but I was just pointing out the contradiction in your statement. You often make a lot of simple mistakes while being assertive and hostile around these threads... not the best combination for building a reputation.

Ah, things are clearer now I see what's going on. Sorry, to disappoint but I'm not interested in that sort of game.

So we are in a pandemic it seems. if you haven't noticed. the future is unclear. but i have questions.

  • how are people going to get out of this mess if we all dont get vaccinated?
  • are we going to get lock downs every winter or every few months?
  • poorer nations not being able to deal money wise so new variants are being made, so should richer nations help them?
  • is this the new normal?
Covid is not going anywhere, that said its dangerous bite on people will diminish over time as mutations will weaken its nature into something akin to the normal cold/flu virus. Omnicron so far seems to be the least damaging variant thus far, while having a quick infection rate and spread has not had any damaging results turn up on those compared to the original variants. Sure, you will have mortality rates but just like with the flu this is unavoidable in those with compromised immune systems, older age or just playing russian roulette with your immune system and whatever BS cures you read up on facebook because you do not want to join in with the rest of society to accept science over political conspiracies.


The only one and true conspiracy is that news/media outlets fuel panic by utilizing shit like this because that is how media stays relevant. Its entertainment at the cost of sanity and morality. Pretty sure Don Henley's Dirty Laundry explains this best. Once the media finds something else to milk to death and back the constant reporting of covid will likely become old news. Its already losing interest with a lot of people as it is as most are just sick and tired of hearing about it now.

Anyone remember growing up in the early 00's remember how the news took everything about 9/11 and basically milked the fear of terror for months/years? Same concept more or less. When you have a big world changing event go down you milk that shit for everything its worth until the public is done caring about it. It's why I have stopped caring about most news media anymore, and I stay far FAR away from social media.

  1. :rofl:
  2. For now, probably. But I don't think for more than another year or so, when vaccine sales are low and big pharma needs to create a scare to boost sales.
  3. :rofl:Should? Of course, but they will only do enough to satisfy news coverage, and poorer nations will continue to suffer. Business as usual.
  4. Not new.
For the U.S. at least, it seems we're entering our "end game." Restrictions are being loosened up, travel is being opened up. Time to let it spread again, so they can up the need for more vaccinations. Once they make another few firesales over the next two or three years, we'll likely see the "vaccine(s)" become like a regular flu shot that's seasonal.
