There's something to be said for the "rabbits vs. wolves" analogy. The unprecedented "good times" in America since WWII have allowed for millions of weak people to be born who don't have a self-preservation instinct and are actively hostile towards their own civilization. I don't think any amount of deaths or disabilities will "wake up" people who aren't already alert to this madness. Apparent deaths from the vaccine are liberally being blamed on Covid and the unvaccinated, without much pushback. The only real opposition seems to be from corporations who don't want the hit to their bottom line by having to fire workers just before the "holiday" consumption season.They look short term, we look long term, that's essentially the difference. For them ''just'' getting the jab and ''just'' scanning their QR code in 2 seconds is nothing for being able to go to a somewhat normal state of affairs. They don't see any danger. I believe this also has to do with the fact that in the West at least we've had 70 years of prosperity, no serious crises, no devastating wars, the idea of it's getting better all the time and nothing can happen to us now. We've become domesticated, weak, feeble and at the peak of unalertness to any danger.
I'm glad that normies seem to be opening their eyes here and there, but unless it translates into civil disobedience by not following rules and mandates, it's hard to see what good it will do. Globo-Homo may have overplayed their hand by rolling out mandates, boosters and the idea of third/annual doses so quickly, but their tactic in cases like this is to pull back for a while and then ratchet things up two more notches while people are occupied with some other distraction. The destruction of the livelihoods of millions of people has already been normalized between lockdowns and mandates, if people don't resist en masse now it will be nearly impossible to roll back in the future absent a devastating war, economic collapse or other societal crisis. All things are possible with God however, so I will continue to pray for the strength to bear whatever may come.
