I can't wrap my head around the fact that some people seriously think vaccine would give them full protection against COVID but then will continue to wear masks because they need masks to protect others from catching COVID from them. They do not find any sort of logical discrepancy in their reasoning, apparently!

To get it you would have to be thinking. The entire purpose of the mainstream media is to keep you from thinking.

And the whole purpose of lockdowns, mandating church closures, family gatherings and other social events are about preventing people from spreading information, facts and logic to others. They're also about programming society to accept control and authority from the government just like TSA has done at airports.

Pavlovian training. Definitely a lot of attempts at psychological training going on. Also look up Biderman's chart of coercion. That will feel very familiar these days

Cause and effect is a very ephemeral concept for a brain on autopilot , every leftist I've ever known has suffered from it.

Well put. Auto pilot hits the nail on the head. Seems to me that for some people, there’s a subconscious coping mechanism going on as well. I think those who frequent this site are typically the type who feel compelled to look behind the curtain & have a strong impulse to question & try to make sense of motives & events. But a lot of people are absolutely repelled by the idea of peeking behind the curtain & they simply lack the driving instinct to do it. They want to believe what is easiest to believe when it comes to corruption & greed in government but, needless to say, they don’t view it that way at all.
