To our friends who received the Covid-19 vaccine,
First, the purpose of this letter is to clarify some misconceptions floating around as to why some of your fellow citizens have elected to not receive the Covid-19 vaccine.
Hearing the reasoning from the very people involved, as opposed to a biased third party, will ease unnecessary tension and animosity that only further divides the populace. Besides, right now we need all the unity we can get.
The majority of people refusing the Covid-19 vaccine are not “anti-vaxxers,” people against all vaccines in general, especially the mandating of vaccines. Nor are we against modern medicine despite how much the “science denier” propaganda is spewed. Not all of us believe the vaccine is really a microchip being implanted to track our movements.
In fact, most people on this side of the debate have never given a single thought to this topic before. They’re normal people who obey the rules, don’t complain much, just nose-to-the-grindstone kinds of people who society now stigmatizes because they have questions.
So, allow me, if you will, to lay out some of these concerns, and explain why this vaccine is troubling.
Initial pandemic response
Let’s begin with the pandemic itself. Yes, we’re skeptical of almost every narrative surrounding it. This doesn’t mean we believe Covid itself is a hoax. However, people’s overreaction to the virus led to some of our nation’s most overreaching policies ever.
The government was allowed the authority to shut down some private businesses while allowing others to stay open. Our economy was essentially brought to a standstill over an entire year, devastating communities with unemployment, poverty, and an uptick in crime.
The pandemic also called for the printing of 9 trillion more US dollars that have been pumped into our economy in the form of stimulus checks, Paycheck Protection Programs (PPP) loans, and other government subsidies.
This will inevitably lead to massive amounts of inflation and will weaken our economy. Just recently, 23 countries, including China and Russia, have started to move their respective economies away from the dollar. Ultimately, this will only further the US’s economic demise.
Then there’s the implementation of vaccine passports, the latest twist in the soap opera called “empowering the government.” The passports are to prove your vaccination status so you can enter places of business. New York and California have already taken the greatest strides to implement a statewide vaccine verification system.
What was dismissed just last year as merely a “conspiracy theory” is now becoming a reality as the government and big business gain more access into our personal lives.
All of this for a virus that severely affects mainly the elderly and those with multiple preexisting chronic conditions. 40% of those infected never experienced any symptoms whatsoever. Over 99% of people who tested positive for Covid survived. Are these stats worth drastically changing the landscape of the country?
When you consider the next reason, it starts to become clear. The pandemic made the rich richer and the poor poorer.
An analysis found the combined wealth of all U.S. billionaires increased by $1.763 trillion (59.8%) between March 18, 2020, and July 9, 2021, from approximately $2.947 trillion to $4.711 trillion. Of the more than 700 U.S. billionaires, the richest five (Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Ellison, and Elon Musk) saw an 113% increase in combined wealth during this period, from $349 billion to $743 billion.
With the closures of most small businesses, the wealth is being rapidly transferred from the middle class to upper class elites.
That wealth transfer has some especially negative impacts. For one, there’s been a rise in big asset managers like Black Rock buying up property and offering 50% above the asking price. This is another move made by the ruling class to monopolize land, the only true wealth in existence.
We saw the same move being made via public policy where the rent moratorium was extended to keep struggling families from having to pay rent. On the surface, this seems like a noble move. Underneath, however, it’s simply a means of transferring the land from individual homeowners to goliath financial institutions backed by the might of the federal government.
And this shouldn’t come as a surprise, but the pandemic, and the eventual development of the vaccine, has minted 9 new pharmaceutical billionaires.
Next, there’s the blatant censoring of those raising questions about the vaccines’ safety. Tech giants Google, Twitter, and Facebook have coordinated with the federal government to silence what they’re calling “misinformation.”
Of course, “misinformation” really means anything that challenges the accepted narrative. The White House has gone so far to name those who are “spreading disinformation” about the vaccine.
This raises several questions. Do the billionaires who increased their worth because of the pandemic not have an interest in limiting information that weakens their case to make themselves richer? Misinformation is everywhere, that’s what comes with freedom of thought, yet the powers that be never tried so hard to silence opposition than they are now.
Do we not have the right to be skeptical, especially when our society is being drastically changed because of this?
We also just saw the media, along with the entertainment industry and even politicians, do a complete 180 in how they view the vaccine. Late last year, Democratic politicians, including Vice President Kamala Harris, openly said they wouldn’t trust a vaccine developed under then-president Donald Trump.
Many members of the media and Hollywood celebrities expressed the exact same sentiments. All have reversed course now that Trump is out of office. Have the manufacturers changed since then? What caused the sudden change of heart regarding the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine? No one gives us an answer because everyone is afraid to ask it.
Hollywood is probably the biggest hypocrite when it comes to vaccine support. Last summer they railed against the system. They called the United States an “inherently racist” society where the only remedy is the abolishment and rebuilding of this nation as we know it. They lectured us nonstop about “systemic racism,” “critical race theory,” and “inherent bias” that permeated every aspect of American life.
This year, they’re shaming those that refuse to adhere to the same system’s power grab, celebrating and encouraging for the same racist system to become more powerful.
Either the system is evil and can’t be trusted, especially with an experimental vaccine rushed to market, or it’s a benevolent entity with our best interest in mind. Activists can’t have it both ways.
The last reason people are skeptical of taking the vaccine is the ineffectiveness of it to date. Vaccinated people can still contract and even transmit Covid-19. In some cases, although rare, vaccinated people have still died from the virus. The number of new cases is going up, and although the mainstream narrative is blaming the “unvaccinated,” there’s no evidence the spreading is solely their fault.
More so, there’s also the new variants springing up. In particular, the Delta variant is the strain causing the most damage. The current batch of vaccines can’t adapt at the same rate the virus can, thereby making it necessary to introduce booster shots to strengthen the existing vaccine.
This has also led to talks of developing more vaccines to be administered “down the line”. How it really appears is that the first batch of vaccines were just the beginning.
18 months after the world froze in the form of lockdowns, mask mandates, and social distancing, we’re no better off than we were then. Lockdowns are returning. We’re still wearing masks. And still asked to stay home to stop the spread. All of this after introducing a vaccine.
When we see all the structural changes implemented and the wealthy increasing their wealth while the rest of us struggle to make ends meet, one can’t help but think there’s an agenda at play here. One that has nothing to do with our health.
The massive amounts of wealth being transferred to the ruling elites didn’t come because of tanks and armed officers forcibly taking it. No, these people are smarter than that, they know how to manipulate the conditions to where your only move is to surrender to their will. That’s what they did, and they used Covid as the necessary pretext to do it.
We saw all of this, from the contradictory narratives and biased media to the ever-empowering government. All things that couldn’t and wouldn’t happen absent the pandemic. Yet, you want to force us to take a vaccine proven to be ineffective and unnecessary? A vaccine that will most likely be the first of many, and each time more billionaires are minted, and more wealth is taken?
So yes, we’re skeptical, and rightfully so. We’re not insensitive people who don’t care about your elderly grandmother. No, we’re concerned citizens weary of bad actors who will take advantage of, and even manufacture, a crisis just to enrich themselves. We see the silencing of opposition as the first step towards concentrated power monopolizing information.
I completely understand your concern regarding public health. But remember, we’re equally concerned with the government and the elites they protect gaining more power at the expense of our freedom. Those concerns are just as valid as yours. We examine all the actors involved, understand their motives, and then use critical thinking to make a decision.
I sincerely hope that an understanding can be reached because of this letter. Either way, we’ll be outside securing all our freedoms, including yours.
