I was hoping you would say how the conversation ended. Did she listen? Did she sweep all the dishes off of the table and run away screaming into the night? Please let us know.

Fair question. Lunch was almost over when she asked, so we didn't have much time - by the time I'd finished telling her why I thought the premise of her question was so patronizing, we were basically done, so we had no time even to begin talking about the facts around the vaccines. (And I'm not sure she even entirely accepted my objection, because she is not a rude person and thus doesn't think of herself that way and was not TRYING to offend. But I'd say she began to.)

Thank you for responding. I was forced to retire earlier than I wanted to because I didn't want to take the vaccine. People would either avoid me, or commiserate and say"I didn't want to take it, but....." I did overhear a group talking about myself and others in the same situation with the exact condescending attitude that your relative expressed. I've had every other vaccine required, and took the flu shot every year, but I was a stupid caveman in their eyes.Even though it effected me financially I am still convinced I did the right thing.

I, too, lost a job because I refused the jab. I had a terrible reaction to the flu vaccine and legitimately wanted to wait to see how this one went after roll out. When I was told that wasn’t a valid reason to not get it, I dug my heels in. I needed my job but not at the cost of violating my principles of individual liberty. When someone asks me to this day if I’m retired, I tell them I was forced out of the job market because I refused to take the jab. I’m not sugar coating it.

We need more people like you. Thank you! My husband was 2 weeks away from losing his job before the mandate was lifted. I am so sorry you lost yours. We all need to stand up. Do NOT forget they added it to the list of normal childhood vaccines. I GUARANTEE you in the future these lunatics (like Hochul in NY) will quietly mandate them for school! Guarantee it! And what is worse, I USE to believe parents would stand up against it, but who knows anymore??!

tried to avoid jabs all my life, had a few immunisations as a child, but not jabs, they were oral. When I came to the US I had 7 all at once, and because I was rejected the first time, the next year I had to redo, luckily the doc understood my reluctance and only gave me 4. Hopefully that will be the last ones in my lifetime! Flu shots have been known to cause side effects and have little benefit, there are much better products on the market than the shots. I am a seemstress and get enough shots as is LOL

You did do the right thing.

I’m impressed your relative wanted to talk about it and asked about your journey! What I’ve run into with team apocalypse friends and relatives is the exact opposite, all conversation about anything Covid, the government response to it, the vaccines, is immediately shut down and no discussion will be tolerated. Team Apocalypse knows they’re wrong, they know they’re cowards and were bamboozled by the press and public health officials and they just want all discussion to go away. You might have been a slight touchy sensitive when she asked if you believed in science, yes she was calling you a moron but you want to keep the conversation going! Sometimes you take one for the team to get to the end goal of penetrating their skull with facts.

My super-vaxx parents won't talk about it, even though knew two of my friends who suddenly died in their sleep. At least they never cut me out. My only sibling, my brother, still thinks me and my wife should be in a camp for refusing the shots, but that is the way people are in Silicon Valley, very woke, very racist, and very stupid.

I am sorry that happened & you were forced to retire. Yes, “anti-vax” is what we were called despite having every other vaccine/flu shot that existed!

I think there is nothing wrong about being anti-vax. After having read "Turtles all the way down" ( https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61605704-turtles-all-the-way-down ) I am not going to take any vaccine ever again.

The publicly held company I worked for during Covid paid workers $100 for proof of vaccination. I asked how we could do that with HIPA and add pressure to take an untested and new technology. It was not open to debate. Not a lot of open minds during this period of time.

Expand full comment

FWIW, HIPAA does not apply if the issue at hand impacts work safety. Like drug testing for forklift drivers. For a while, when we were all told the vaccine would reduce your ability to get and spread COVID, it was considered an OSHA work safety issue so not subject to privacy regs. My employer paid $1,000 for proof of vaccination.

You did, you have your integrity and don’t have that poison running through your veins. I took was vilified especially at work. I work for a us law firm in London who are so woke too btw. They mandated it for their us offices and tried to in London but 7 of us out of 400 held strong. It was never a line I was prepared to cross, ever. In fact like Alex’s relative my liberal boss joked with me on zoom during a catch up at Christmas 2021. Hey Jan you should get the vaccine, whilst also she’d just had covid and I just laughed. She has vaccine damage, loss of sight in part of her eye, continuing to have injections but of course they’re not doing anything because they cannot rectify vaccine damage and both she and her consultant believe this is impossible. But however much they bullied me I was prepared to walk away from my job. From the start I’d already decided no. Best decision of my life. My husband was like Alex’s relative so believing in covid, masks and told me get the vaccine and it’s our way out. As a taxi driver, he had many many customers working throughout but so early on many were telling him of their side effects, people he’d known for years. This was the deciding factor and he changed his mind completely, he wasn’t listening to me but day in day out customers who had eye problems, blood clots, heart attacks, strokes, micro clots and it went on and on and there still isn’t a day that goes by and someone else tells him a story of their injuries. From the moment he woke up.

Great piece you have done here for Easter 🐣 Sunday 2023. I would add one thing that no one really knows or understands. Is being a skeptic is when our government leaders are receiving royalty payments for these mRNA shots even what they call a vaccine prior to mRNA. This should be about Protecting People not themselves and don't show no love or respect for Human life. Maybe it's better your relative doesn't know what you do reason is most couldn't handle truths and we don't have any Places for them to go if they knew. You can put innocent people in Prison this is not our fault our government leaders are disciple of Satan committing mortal sin and not called out for doing so.

Alex, I applaud you for continuing to stand up for the truth. I do have a question. It is a little off topic but it is this mindset that we are crazy anti-vaxxers that is permeating certain segments of society. You’re lunch was “civil” but unfortunately we know these people do not take no for an answer. They consider themselves so much smarter then us. Of course, it’s “the science!” So, I think we need to stay one step ahead of them. Obviously, we are too stupid to protect society and our kids! How do we fight against the vaccine for children now that it’s approved as a regular childhood vaccine? I know the vaccination rate is low for it in children, but like you I live in the insane state of New York. You know it will be required for school soon. How do we stop this?? I hate to be a “conspiracy theorist” but I am sure one day soon it will be combined with some other necessary vaccine for kids and the normal good intentioned parent will be none the wiser when it’s injected into their kids when they receive their “school shots!” I think we are foolish to think they will just drop it! After all they are “the science” Lord Fauci told them so! Any suggestions?

Expand full comment

I don't even know that you necessarily have to convince someone we understand the basics of the "scientific method." A simple understanding of statistics and probabilities would suffice to make the point that a new type of mandated "vaccine" isn't warranted. I would have asked my relative how many people that he/she personally knew died "from" Covid in the past three years. How many children or healthy young adults that you knew have died?

I'd also point out that official statistics can be doctored/manipulated and and should not be accepted as gospel. Or that experts and authorities have been wrong countless times. Did Saddam really have weapons of mass destruction? Even if he did, was he planning to use Iraq's Navy or Air Force to use those weapons to attack and conquer the United States? Does she really believe everything she's been told by officials is the gospel truth? If so, why does she still believe that ... if she's so smart and everything.

Do you believe in science? Why of course! I always follow the science. Do you believe in the science of how more doctors smoke camels than any other cigarette? The science of thalidomide, DDT, diethylstilbestrol, statins, glyphosate, Vioxx, to name a few?

The past few years really has made a circus of so called scientists and their blindness to see what's happening right in front of their faces. Look at Neil Degrasse Tyson, for example. "The science only matters if everyone agrees on it!" I wanna puke.

This is 💯. I think respect for scientists, who are as human as the next person, is way overblown.

They can be hyper focused on a pet idea and not actually interested in humans or real outcomes. They can be cruel, unfeeling, and unsympathetic. They can also be bought and paid for.

You hit the nail on the head. It only takes a relatively small group of scientists to decide that they need to do gain of function on a deadly virus to see what they can create, or fulfill a government contract. No different than a determined terrorist group bent on crashing planes into buildings. Their cause is the right one - whether it’s the science or the ideology.

Your strategy of bluntness is very helpful, if and when I get into a conversation such a a this. However, I find that people don’t want to talk about it at all. Meaning any of the Covid topics: masking, vaccines, lockdowns. Maybe because they are realizing how wrong they were, they want to put it behind them. They hear nothing about excess deaths, harmful consequences of masking, etc from their news sources. When it does come up and I respond with facts, they give me a strange look and change the topic.

When our grown kids said we MUST get the vaxx (and be away from grandkids or they’d make us sick), we told them we’d researched & the shots weren’t safe, but they said they trusted their doctors.

The unique brilliance of the psyop is that it targeted and created a belief among our intelligentsia that there is only one objective truth called “the science” and that anyone who questions it is a knuckle-dragging Luddite incapable of rational thought. The intelligentsia are basically the apostles in the new mRNA religion.

The problem is that their gospel does not withstand scrutiny when presented with “the evidence”. Listening to Neil deGrasse Tyson engaging in verbal gymnastics with Del Bigtree to defend his position on vaccines and the social contract is just one example.

That Alex was so smugly dismissed shouldn't surprise anyone. These are people who have been told how smart and superior they are their entire lives.

I suspect that even Alex suffers from this affliction as a Yalie and a NYT alum. As staunch believers in "the science" and the narrative, they are part of a privileged caste of cognoscenti who not only know they are better, but ARE better because of their credentials, beliefs and actions in support of their beliefs.

How earth-shattering it would be to these superior people to find out, let alone admit, that they may have been duped and that the rubes appear to have been right all along.

Dig your handle. Steely Dan is one of my favorite bands. Donald Fagen's Nightfly is a constant on my playlist.

As for your comment, I agree with you completely. A multi-pronged mass media programming effort was and remains integral and I believe some very smart people will find a direct correlation between uptake and information sources.

Everything that occurred in 2020 and beyond seemed to mirror the response to 9/11 and the mass media build-up to the Iraq War, even down to jingoism and the involvement of religious leaders. COVID was just an extension of the GWOT as a brilliant article in Tablet recently pointed out.

The only thing missing from 2001 was the digital infrastructure and the interdependence of traditional media with social media. It was so much easier to herd the sheep when all government needed was cellphones and social media dependence.

All of this was war-gamed in 2019 in Event 201 but was also part of similar pandemic response exercises that go back decades. I wish I could find the great German documentary that broke this down brilliantly.

I am having the same issue as many of you. When you start to discuss the Vaccine, Masks, excess deaths etc., they shut down. Nobody wants to talk about it. That in itself is an interesting phenomenon. I agree, it simply may be nobody wants to acknowledge they were wrong. Because they would also have to acknowledge the government in whom they trusted were not straight with them. That they would have to acknowledge we live in a scary world now. its frustrating.

Expand full comment

"Because they would also have to acknowledge the government in whom they trusted were not straight with them. That they would have to acknowledge we live in a scary world now."

I suspect that only a small percentage of those vaccinated are aware of adverse reactions and other issues because the state/pharma-controlled media and entertainment sources they rely upon do not report these things. They dutifully watch CNN, MSNBC, read the NYT and WaPO, or their local Gannett-affiliated newspaper.

"Howard Stern, Dave Grohl, and The Boss said that anyone who refuses the miracle shot is a cretin who should be cast from society. I'm rolling up my sleeves."

To the extent they hear names like "Alex Berenson", "Steve Kirsch", or "Dr. Robert Malone", they are part of the flat-earth, science-denying fringe and nothing they say is true. These people live in a very large information and climate-controlled vacuum that houses the majority of the population.

Those who may have ventured down the rabbit hole are of two types: those finding it humbling to admit that they blindly trusted governments, media, and corporations with documented track records of lying that go back decades; those who live in fear of being the next "sudden and unexpected" fatality.

Of course they don't want to talk about it.

When the Houston Chronicle began its coverage of the pandemic, it was always centered on a hospital called “United Memorial” —a hospital I had never heard of as an almost life long Houstonian. It certainly wasn’t part of our “world famous” medical center. It turned out to be an institution serving low income minorities, in other words, folks more likely to have co- morbidities and greater risk of severe Covid from the original virus through Delta.

Taking the vax without listening to your intuition might make you seem stupid. If they told you to take the vax and you already had Covid, then that doesn't seem to make sense does it?

The short answer to your relative's question is, "Yes, I believe in science. I believe that science showed the mRNA shots are NOT vaccines. They don't work. Science--done after the widespread injections--showed the shots do not work. They are not safe, nor are they effective, according to science."

Look, she took the time to search for you, Alex, online. That means she could've taken the time to search about the mRNA shots, which she obviously did not do. The lid is now off the cookie jar of doctors who've questioned & objected to the mRNA shots. The censorship seems to have ended.

Doctors Bhattachaarya, Malone, McCullough, Mercola et al are on the podcast circuit.--they've been making the rounds for the last six months,

So, I conclude that she wanted to know about YOU but not about the mRNA shots. She doesn't want to know more.

Recommend the copy of the DOD Contract with Pfizer which I just saw on Outraged Human substack I believe. Dr. David Martin provides many documents as does the Swedish DNA altering study as does the mRNA inventor himself the (in)famous Dr. Robert Malone. All have substacks and or on odysee.com, rumble.com, bitchute.com

When you have studied math or physics long, you will develop a much better boloney detector...

I was a history major in college and after 30 years in Corporate America, have returned to reading history for fun. What weighs on me, heavily, is how I can forgive and live among the friends and family who felt so strongly about this issue and acted with icy, polite hostility. Invitations retracted, eyebrows raised, distanced holidays, a declaration that I should lose my job for refusing a COVID vaccine. It makes me feel more kinship with (for example) those who were against Franco but had to live for so many years under his dictatorship. How do you live among those who betrayed you? It wasn't a war, but it felt like it to those (like me) who never lived through a war in their own homeland. How do I let go of the anger and sense of betrayal and just move on myself? When most people seem downright desperate NOT to talk about the dark days? The 'forgetting' is a gift they have given themselves. I wish I could move on, but not just yet.

Nice point. It's maybe more complicated, even, thinking about the unsettled science re scary longterm effects. If a friend of mine gets honest enough to feel like apologizing, theyve also opened a door to new worry about their own personal health and unknowns.

Sadly, the moment I win the argument that the vx is bad news, ive also just brought new, profound fear into a friend'stop life.

Had had chilling effect on my need to win.

I know what you mean about the chilling effect of the need to win.

What I try to do is pull together possible healing mitigation resources and share the information.

Lux, this is exactly how I feel. How can I discuss the jab dangers with jabbed friends without the obvious message of “you’re doomed!”? So I keep my mouth shut.

Those relationships will never be the same. How could they be? Do you think they think it will? Most don't want to talk/acknowledge what happened because they don't value your opinion/decisions.

The reason they don't value your opinion is because they believe their actions were justified OR know that they behaved awfully and don't want to be reminded of that - because your mere presence is an indictment to them of their behavior.

In both cases they rejected the value of the relationship twice; the first time during the "pandemic" and a second time after the pandemic by not being interested in your feelings or experience during covid. They sacrificed the relationship long ago by making the decision to treat you as if your opinion was not valid.

The true indication of a healthy/valued relationship is when people seek to understand your feelings/position about a topic they have a different opinion about, precisely because they want to make sure that they value the relationship more than their opinion - and they don't want that to always be between the two of you.

That is intentional dedication to the relationship because they took the time to think about how that dynamic would jeopardize any healthy relationship.

So let me ask you a question:

If someone is not "intentional" about a relationship, how often do you think they devote any attention to the "health" of that relationship? This is why you and I feel disillusionment; we valued the relationship more than them because we actually devoted time to thinking about the "shape" if it, while they could not be bothered by it.

This is why the relationship was dispensable; they valued the relationship only at the surface level, because at the core, the relationship was only that which served their interest. We were just vehicles for them to disguise being net "takers".

They never viewed their actions as sacrificing the relationship, because to feel sacrifice and/or to contemplate it would mean that they felt as if they could lose something of value to them. This is why we try to reconcile how easily the relationship was abandoned; we were NOT a "sacrifice" to them, merely a vessel that gave them something for "free".

Take a moment to do a thought exercise:

How would these very same people have treated you if the virus actually presented a threat to the healthy?

These people are not even "good German's; they are the Germans that would open the door for your final shower.

I am right there with you on this. Today I came to the realization that what “we” have going for us is the truth of the situation. But instead of feeling sorry for ourselves, like I tend to do (but it’s just a phase) we begin to kick into our imaginations for creating the NEXT human experiment. A bit daunting, yes. But apparently we are at the forefront. Once we can organize a much, much better cooperative system, with much much more autonomy and less, less control...others will WANT what “we” have to offer. Whaddya think?
