I think you need to relax. There’s a ton of room between the two extremes you mention, and I hope you know that, otherwise I really feel sorry for you.
Actually there are tons of absolutes in this world. Gravity, the speed of light and the fact that the vaccine doesn’t contain mind controlling nanobots - or do you disagree?
A girl is No one - do you believe that the world wide vaccine strategy is a coordinated attempt at mind control? Do you believe the vaccine is designed to kill everyone who gets it or to control their mind? This is a lot of what TFord shares along with other conspiracy theorists.
Why do you believe the sniper is a modern day hero? Lots of people who don’t want to be vaccinated are speaking out - so why is this guy a hero? If anything the real expose is how was such a person allowed to be in situations where he has a high powered scope rifle and be positioned above the PM with a clear shot to kill him? I’m sorry, but when you’re in a Prime Minister or President’s security detail there is zero room for people with strong political/social opinions. They need to function as effectively and unbiased as precision machines - you can’t hope they won’t be influenced by their strongly held views - for example, this guy is ‘angry’ at the PM. The fact that he did an ‘expose interview’ with a conspiracy theory website shows he is a ‘clear and present danger’ in his current role.
Was there no inkling of his opinions or political leanings prior to this? Does the RCMP not do extensive and ongoing screening of people in the most crucial security role in the country? The second anyone in that role expressed any hesitancy in getting vaccinated they should have been reassigned immediately. Yes, public servants can have strongly held opinions or views, but not the guy with the rifle in his hands overlooking the PM.
I have no idea what TFord’s opinion is, I don’t visit the COVID topic. So don’t jump to conclusions.
Thalidomide prescriptions for pregnant women was not a conspiracy but it was a very clear case of a bad policy having serious consequences on people’s lives. Forced sterilization of mentally handicapped people? Internment of Japanese people during the Second World War? Maybe even residential schools? All were done in the name of « greater good ». We just didn’t know their impacts then and we apologize and repent for these grave errors today- and rightfully so. By pretending that we know everything now, we are doomed to repeat the same kind of horrible mistakes.
I’m just saying that it’s important to keep questioning - in fact, that is the crux of the scientific approach. And it’s important not to muffle those who are speaking up IMO.
I’m out. Thanks.
