A simple question but no answers given..
I need to stop joining debates on Twitter, because they leave me quite exhausted. Not because of the energy I have to use, because I don't really use a lot, but it's more the sheer volume of people who, as soon as being asked about something, clamp up and refuse to answer.
Case in point: There was a question on a tweet from a BBC article, about if people were double vaccinated, why did they still get the virus? I replied that even if you are double jabbed, you can still get the virus.. That led to a flurry of antivax people replying to my answer, some with debunked claims (the famous key stuck to skin trick, among them). I was then given four tweets with people claiming stuff already debunked, to which I found the corresponding debunking articles. I then asked the question that I still haven't gotten a clear answer on, even seven hours after I asked it. It went like this: "Lets say you're right. That they purposely push a vaccine with no real evidence to back up their claim of it being effective. What's their motive for doing so? Why would they push a vaccine that doesn't work on us?"
The reply? "Excellent question. Go and find out... All the best"
Why not answer that question? I mean, it's a simple question, is it not? Surely the people saying the evil big pharma corporations pushes a vaccine on us that doesn't work will have a reply to what the motive for doing so is? Not even a theory? Is it money? To track us all? And what about them not suffering from TB? The bubonic plague? Measles? Mumps? Diphtheria? I guess it's because vaccines have been developed for those illnesses. Why is it such a big controversy about this covid vaccine? People will claim it's because the covid vaccine has been rushed, when in reality it hasn't. As I understand it, the vaccine for covid was developed quickly because they were already studying coronaviruses for the past five decades. It was then easy to create a vaccine from data collected from all those five decades.. But that doesn't sell newspapers or generate clicks. Regarding the tracking us all.. Well, what about the smartphone that people use? That tracks you all the time. If you use GPS in your car, that uses satellite information to track you. A vaccine will NOT track you - mainly because it doesn't include the capability to do so.
I, for one, am happy with getting the vaccine
