I am perhaps fortunate that my main interaction with the wider world is through this blog.
Most face-to-face interactions with others come with me either deciding to bite my tongue about the elephant-in-the room and I fear most who are aware of my position have given up on me as they line up for their experimental mRNA jab.
First of all there was this from my own brother who makes a speciality out of provocation,
If you have looked at the Melbourne situation and realised that could be us….. you can take action yourself to book a Covid vaccination without waiting to be told:
Call 0800 282926 National Covid booking line.
They will take your information and transfer you to your area District Health Board booking line.
Be prepared to set aside time for a long wait on hold.
I am totally perplexed by the ease with which the bulk of people I know don’t know fall for the 24/7 propaganda and are angrily unwilling to even ask basic questions
Like the (ex) sister-in-law of my partner who was sent to electronic Coventry for asking her to consider carefully before having the job.
I have some compassion for people who have been deprived of any ability to think critically and are conditioned to follow the herd.
I recognise I have to bite my tongue and day nothing which is why a largely avoid most interactions with others.
However, I have far less compassion for those who do know what it is about but make the decision to get the jab anyhow.
When I started hearing from people that they would “never” take the vaccine I rather cynically thought, when push comes to shove, “YES, you will!”.
When they come knocking and when you can’t travel, sit in a cafe or all the nice things people enjoy, YES you will!
Despite my cynicism I never thought that someone from “our” side would fold – even without any threat.
However, I got this from a Facebook “friend” who lives a little bit up the line from where I live, and has been sending me bits and pieces about covid-19 and the vaccine for over a year:
“Hi Rob Please be my private tracker as tomorrow Penelope my wife and I will have the first Pfizer jab. Penelope has a Home Care Giving Business with many compromised clients tetra and paraplegic and I with a Diagnostic Company . We are 70’ish and still want to travel. We are both extremely fit and healthy. So we will take our chances as the way things are. If anything goes amiss please let NZ and the world know.”
This was followed up by:
Such lack of moral backbone is beyond my understanding.
My father and (presumably) this man’s father went to war to defend our freedom and yet this man and his wife fold without so much as the threat coming their direction.
It has been said that the population in losing devotion to a Greater Being have lost their moral compass and are totally attached to convenience and the easy life.
No moral “red line” which must never be crossed actions are determined by “convenience”.
I totally fail why someone who is in-the-know should knowingly play dice with their lives because it would be “inconvenient” to do otherwise.
It is hard to express my lack of respect for these people.
