Excellent points.

The article clarifies, as do your comments, that it is somehow anti-white to not promote hate speech of the 'other', that one's 'whiteness' is itself defined by their hatred of others. This trend in far-right-wing narratives is really disturbing.

No one should worship science, as that would be the opposite purpose of its use (to avoid relying on blind faith, even if science has been developed by religious people).

Scientists who publish for direct payments are rare, but you can see obvious corporate sponsors of major scientific grants and programs who are definitely influencing the direction of the research, even if it has to be scientifically sound in order to work or make sense.

I believe it's very important to be sceptical. I waited until the latest possible time to get each vaccine, in order to wait for news of the potential side effects. I do the same with software updates. One problem and benefit of any technology today is that the complexity of its development involves numerous moving resources. There are of course crooks manipulating COVID information. What they cannot do is change the science.

There is however an impressively complex campaign of pseudoscience propaganda about genetic modification that requires some knowledge of science to discuss, but is also totally unrelated to the impact of mRNA vaccines. Still, it's a lot of detailed material for the anti-vax community to learn and believe in, and I wonder why they absolutely must go to that much trouble.

I hesitated to note 'occasional negative press'. News media haven't really criticized any of the vaccines. In the extremely rare cases where there had been a cardiac problem in younger people with the AZ vaccine, or another problem with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or with the effectiveness of the Chinese or Russian vaccines, these were all incredibly rare events. 8 billion doses of vaccines have been administered. The number of people who took a blood thinner to cope afterward with an adverse cardiac reaction is miniscule few dozen people, by contrast with 8 billion doses administered. (That's a metric, perhaps.)

You're referring to videos that were produced and shared by propagand distribution companies who recevie a lot of money from political groups. They're not trustworthy. As we know, the state of the scientific research is what should be considered. Saidit hosts the propaganda you mention. It's obviously dishonest. Yes, there are occasional horrible side effects with many drugs and some vaccines, depending on one's allergies, or other physical problems, or whatever. But this is not a problem in 99% of cases (billions of doses).

Certainly, Phizer is guilty of this promotion of the vaccine. I am not arguing arguing about the promotion.

What Pfizer cannot control are reports of responses to the vaccine.

Turns out that the Pfizer vaccine hasn't had the same kinds of occasional negative press that other vaccines have had, that the vaccine appears to be effective, and that it's rather popular in some countries that don't trust the other options for vaccines (AZ, Russian, Chinese &c versions).

So if we remove the usual discussion about crooked Big Corp and Big Pharma, a discussion of global approaches to virology and vaccine science will conclude that vaccines are safe and effective in 99.9% of the cases.

There are other researchers sharing the same kinds of vaccine research with other virologists. The approaches of companies to that research will not differ very much.

Why focus on Pfizer? Vaccine research by Oxford U's researchers and AstraZenica, and others has been shared with the wider virology community. It's not terribly complicated to share mRNA research, as has happened. Whatever Pfizer doesn't want to share is due to a patent process, but not so different from other mRNA vaccine research. More about AstraZenica here. I am not interested in discussing Big Pharma, in this case, but to look at the scientific vs pseudoscience approaches in the video and to ask here if anyone can shed light on the sources used by the lady on the right.

Your position is becoming increasingly indefensible.

Not in the least. Problems you mention here are associated with bad medical practice, which - in the cases you mention - relates to some ongoing fiduciary problems with the medical profession. For example, I agree that the field of psychiaatry inappropriately over-prescribes antidepressants, and for this there has been several backlashes against this practice since the 1970s.

But fiduciary irresponsiblity in the psychiatric profession is very different from the exact science of virology and the implementation of vaccine programs.

My comments are specifically about medical science, virlogists, and the science of virology, and how there is no known motivation to get that wrong, for three reasons: (1) it's not what scientists want, and (2) if it fails, it's abandoned, and (3) scientists are, by necessity, always watching the global trends and statistics and making adjustments to those.

Of course there will be unethical humans, bad practicioners, and corrupt corporations, but global efforts ot develop, test and use vaccines are part of a check and balance system that keep the process focused on the best available vaccine science. It is very important to disconnect the human foibles from the collaboration of scientific expertise, as the latter naturally reduces instances of the former.

Another part of my answer to your comments I sent to d3rr, here.

I appreciate your point about Big Pharma, and the numerous problems with them, especially in the US, the only country I know where Big Pharma can advertise constandly on TV and can buy politicians without any consequence. My comments are specifically not mentioning Big Pharma, or Big Corp. My references are only to "medical professionals and scientists working with virology and vaccines over the past 100 years." Many of those folks aren't on Big Pharma payrols, but are instead part of universities &c, such as Oxford, where the Astra-Zenica vaccine was developed (and it too was not best for younger people). As for Pfizer and Big Pharma, and the link you provide, they too are working with scientifically valid approaches to vaccines. Notice that Phizer is guilty of a very common problem in Big Pharma: "illegal drug promotions that plied doctors with free golf, massages, and resort junkets." This has happened for decades. What about the science behind the production of vaccines? Any problem with that? This global development and test process for safe vaccines has been a scientific and medical process, not about illegal drug promotions. The Pfizer vaccine - as it happens - is one of the better versions of the vaccine. TL,DR: I am not referencing corrupt Big Pharma when I am referencing global scientific efforts to develop and test safe vaccines. If the latter were corrupted, we'd know. Moreover, there is no motivation to corrupt the scientific process for a vaccine, in 99% of the cases. To assume otherwise is rather paranoid and fearful of scientists and medical professionals.

Reports from where? Are your sources trustworthy? Is the information corroborated by other sources? There isn't a secret global conspiracy to actively harm people with vaccines. We know this because we have access to the scientific data, and because we know that this is not the tradition with virology or the medical profession. To assume that all of this has recently changed, globally, in order to harm people, is ridiculous.

You don't have to turn to insults, Node. Remember the pyramid of debate.

You should ask yourself about the people in the 'medical community'. Are they there because they're sociopaths who want to cause harm? Are scientists evil, and trying to kill or harm people with their research. How many sociopaths are there in any population, or in the medical profession? Is there a global effort to understand and address COVID19, and thus regulate approaches by big pharma? To assume anything you note would be to think that people are naturally evil and want to kill you. Get a grip. Another response to this kind of issue is here.

I am very sorry to hear of your aunt's passing. I would agree that - in geographic locations where patients and doctors aren't appropriately looking or tracking - it's very difficult to track 'causation' for vaccines and subsequent myocarditis or pericarditis, which would mean that we don't have thorough global statistics. In a number of 1st world countries, however, those who've taken the vaccine are asked to report back the second they feel a side effect, and indeed have to sit anw wait for 15 minutes after a jab before leaving a facility. The monitoring was reliable enough that a number of people under age 35 were reported to have myocarditis (in the Netherlands or Denmark?) in late 2020/early 2021. The result was the pulling of the vaccine (Astra-Zenica?) from distribution in that country and the avoidance of offering it to people under 35. The Israel article is related to those early concerns, and was provided here only because of a lazy search. If you look for - myocarditis pericarditis vaccine - you'll see much more helpful information: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-myocarditis-and-pericarditis-information-for-healthcare-professionals/information-for-healthcare-professionals-on-myocarditis-and-pericarditis-following-covid-19-vaccination . I think that NHS information is helpful, particularly as a way of showing how commen myocarditis has become, and showing that this can be a problem potentially for younger people, c. 12-19 years of age, though only in miniscule numbers of a few hundred per million. Other websites include more information about this research.

I don't think there is a conspiracy to hide side effects or not to address them, as medical professionals and scientists working with virology and vaccines over the past 100 years genuinely want to safely reduce the spread of viruses. To assume otherwise is to assume that many people in these professions are literally sociopaths. Propaganda news media want to spread paranoia, pessimism, hate and fear by implying that there are so many bad actors in these professions that you would be in serious danger were you to take the vaccine.

If you are the one in 50,000 people to have a minor cardiovascular problem after a dose of the vaccine, the CDC calls this a golden ticket, and will send you to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory in the Ivory Coast.

Thanks for the info. I don't think he's in full control of COVID response process. I appreciate that others here on Saidit feel differently about this and that they are also angry. So perhaps I shouldn't comment. My association with this is with regard to the history of medicine, though I will however appreciate that you and others are angry especially for political reasons, and an interest in not being forced to take the vaccine. There should be opitons for opting out, but I don't know much about how that would work, even if I'd agree that it should be possible,especially if those opting out can remain only among themselves, and not potentially infect others. Regarding the medical information, a brief reply would be that mRNA cannot insert into your genetic code. Here is more information:

Thanks. I had to look up purebloods and Biden. It seems there is an anti-vax movement referring to themselves as purebloods. I've not seen Biden's comemnt on this, but will keep looking. The last time I heard 'pureblood' was in the TV Series, True Blood. I think the concept is also addressed in the Harry Potter series, where we're supposed to value the contributions of a half-blood teenager. The series is not really fair to the purebloods, who are merely trying to protect their own, but are thwarted by the teenagers and their supporters. This is also a major concern of Michael Fassbender's character in the X Men series, where he - as a survivor of the Holocaust - wants to ensure the survival of the "children of the atom, homo superior, the next link in the chain of evolution," the pure blood mutants, and thus would be happy with losses to the human race, or so it seems. But I digress. I am afraid I don't know much about 'purebloods', or Biden's opinion of them, but I would suspect that he uttered a sarcastic word or two about them. He must be thinking: I'm too old for this shit. If the purebloods have had the Polio vaccine, they might already have those famous CIA nanobots in their bloodstream, tracking their every activity. (Sorry to make a joke of this, however. If I were to tell someone at work that I am not taking the vaccine because I am a pureblood, my nickname from then on might be, 'the pureblood'.)

His answer to your question is that, "the flyers targeted Jewish people only." To say that "every single aspect of the covid agenda is Jewish" is obviously false, and obviously meant to encourage people to hate all Jewish people. There is also no proven 'COVID agenda'. This is clearly a message of hate.

If I were to post flyers that note, "eat the rich," this would perhaps be more on point, though unfair to many rich people who perhaps don't deserve to be eaten. Or perhaps I could post - COVID was created by US and Chinese billionnaires - which would also be on point, but cannot be proven at the moment, and would be unfair to some billionnaires.

A better flyer in this case would ask people to boycot Big Corp, or specific companies, noting specific abuses of those companies.

This is not a conspiracy, but a fact that would be posted in /s/politics. We should remember it, and look at the other incredibly evil activities of the CIA and FBI in the early 1960s.

For this to be a conspiracy, one could see that the CIA and their list of Sunni Muslim supporters of Abd al-Karim Qasim (who had been in power only since 1958, when they had Soviet support to overthrow the US-supported Hashemite monarchy) connect with other geopolitical CIA interventions in the region (inc. Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey), and with the 1956 invasion of Egypt by Israel, Britain, and France, and with attempts by Israel to eventually kick Jordan and Egypt out of the West Bank and Gaza (in 1967), and with Kennedy's disaproval of the CIA humanitarian disaster in Iraq in early 1963, leading to CIA operatives working with Kissinger's Center for International Affairs (founded 1958) and other Israel lobbyists to plot additional interventions in the Middle East, and to help assassinate JFK because (as Commander in Chief) he would not approve their activities, whereas Johnson certainly would approve these activities, as he and his Texan friends had already planned to put Johnson in office by any means possible.

I remember all of that, as well as 'Christians' throwing rocks at school busses that had blacks and whites sent from the poor part of town to a wealthier part of town, while many from the wealthier part of town were bussed to schools in the poorer part of town. 'Forced bussing' worked very well, as it mixed middle class and lower class groups in different parts of cities. 'Christians' opened private 'Christian' schools so that their kids wouldn't have to be bussed downtown to the poorer area schools. Forced bussing worked nonetheless.

See for example Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness', where the beliefs and convictions of the tribes are deemed much more profound and impressive than the global/imperial trends c. 1900. I've posted this clip on Saidit as a way of seeing if others see the parallels with the imperialism and racism in contemporary anti-vaccine culture, by comparison to Brando's/Francis Ford Coppola's comments (and Conrad's views, for those who read Conrad). Coppola's and Conrad's approaches are somewhat anti-imperial and anti-racist, though framed in imperial and racist settings. Anti-vaxxers believe so strongly in their anti-science approaches that they also frame those approaches within other political dialogues that are against the 'other', against the empire, against 'globalism', against non-whites, against non-Christians, against liberals, against Democrats, against poor people, against almost everything except their personal feelings. Ironically, the 1% have manipulated these anti-vaxxers to believe the expensive anti-vax propaganda. And now the anti-vaxxers are a powerful force in the US and some other countries, who can help prolong COVID mutations and spreading, help Amazon/Bezos to get rich from online sales, help the 1% get votes for ironically named anti-establishment GOP candidates who are spewing anti-science and racist hatred in D.C. on a regular basis in order to appeal to this influential group of anti-vaxxers.

So I genuinely want to know what Saidit thinks of this movie clip and its potential connection to the anti-vax movement, for better or worse.

Rather insecure of you and /u/Node to resort to an ad hominem attacks. If you've both got a worthwhile comment about a subject, make it, otherwise you should simply recognize that you don't have anything reasonable to contribute to that particular discussion. It's as simple as that. Have some self-respect.

We actually agree on this.

One of the few so-called right-wing/non-centrist issues I agree with is a stricter immigration policy and better boarder security, because the lack of these can lead to increased crime rates (but this is not a comment on race or ethnicity). Much of the right-wing 1% want to get votes by speaking against immigration, but instead support it, because their corporate and farming doners want them to support immigration, and especially allow for illegal immigration, which is cheaper labour, on a seasonal basis. Neo-Liberals support immigration without lying about their support. I don't support liberal policies on immigration, not in the least. My main arguments at DAR tend to be against racist comments and unfounded claims.

There's nothing to gain by any country taking in people that do more harm than good to not only the culture there, but the people and the economy.

It generally doesn't happen (because most people aren't assholes).

If you really want to understand what's happening: look at the big picture. The 'haves' have always exploited the 'have nots'. Wake up and smell the economy.

Alright, jive turkey, time to celebrate your freedom and do something fun. Put the bottle down and enjoy a video game, or a movie, go bowling, or try mini-golf, or a bit of karaoke or darts or pool at the local pub (and a tall Coke), or call someone, or do whatever you want (except drink). Perhaps head to the nearest mega grocery and get Haagen Daz, and help old ladies cross the street. Get some of those 'freedom fries' you have in the US. Head to the park and walk around, enjoy a cigar. Go to an archery range. Perhaps visit an AA meeting in the area this evening. I don't know. Just some random thoughts. Best wishes whilst the wife is away.

Node - this is a strange response, even for you. People do indeed emigrate for many reason. I don't even know what 'gibs' are. It's also really strange to get responses to a rather basic 6-point comment on DAR that focus entirely on people of color, whereas my comment is addressing a broad economic issue. DAR will never be taken seriously when people post these dumb, narrow-minded responses. DAR can't even appropriately define itself or its goals, so perhaps it's not surprising that the responses here are so mentally challenged.

No - this is not at all what I've discussed. You obviously don't know or especially don't want to know how to read the comments I posted.

Regarding the education of immigrants - I refer to all of them everywhere (not just in Sweden). These programs already exist for immigrants in many countries, and include opitons to learn the national language, customs, traffic laws &c. I said nothing out of the ordinary about this. The addition necessary for this education is a component about women's rights and how not to harrass them. All naturalization processes include handbooks and tests that can include these additional approaches.

If you do not understand naturalization processes, or don't want to look them up, leave it at that. Stop embarrasing yourself with responses that are unrelated to my initial comments. Moreover: stop being so aggressive in your approaches to claim that the initial comments were racist, when they certainly weren't. It's a pathetic approach.

So there are people in Sweden who get up each morning, thinking?: today I want to help destroy Sweden's homogeneity....

(Nope, that's obviously not a motivation for 99% of any group. Follow the money.)

The European - meaning white - immigrants, yes.

Nope - that's of course a ridiculous racist idea. Don't be ridiculous, or evil. All working immigrants contribute to an economy.

send the ones who are already there back.

This promotes a humanitarian crisis.

Think of real-world solutions, Ethnocrat, rather than this brainwashed, schizo, unfounded hatred. Follow the money, and address that problem.

The 'shake down' is not in taxes. It's by those who gave themselves tax cuts and deregulated offshore profits and corporate greed. For 40 years, the 1% have been eating away at the productivity of the 99%, without reinvesting.

Not funny. The problems aren't 11 months old. It took 7+ years of GOP (and some Dems') greed to get to this point (with NO investments in the econnomy, until the recent Dem infrastructure bill). That's economics.

Again, Node - factually incorrect. Stop embarrasing yourself with these comments. If you truly don't know about migratory statistics, look up: demographics migration ethnicity. We live in a global economy wherein migratory rates are the highest ever. A very high percentage of the world's population is global. The largest single ethnic group is Han Chinese. They are also one of the significant migratory groups. If you are unaware of the number of people in ethnic groups, look here, or here. Stop trolling and look up basic information. (Migratory activities among "black and brown" is nowhere near 99%. Also, stop thinking of skin color, and start thinking of the economics.)
