Bro, I’m joining Patriot Front in their righteous mission. Bro, you should join Patriot Front as well. Bro, trust me. Bro, my brother is a commandant in Patriot Front. Bro, where are you going? We have to fight in the race war!

I purchased a bodycam for this exact reason. I don't need super high definition video or incredibly clear audio. I just need an auditable record of an event taking place. It has come in handy quite a few times even when the practice itself has been questionable.

Post-Purchase Rationalization

1
acasper 1 point ago +1 / -0

This is post-purchase rationalization. If you want to maximize your chances of getting through to a family member or friend who is using language like this understanding how they came to be in this position is important. There are a bunch of reasons that people got the jab. They may not have wanted the promised inconvenience in their daily life, were threatened with a loss of employment or essential services, genuinely trust the government, or have become fully encompassed by the mass formation which has taken place.

All of the above reasons fall somewhere on a spectrum in regards to how desperately a person will attempt to rationalize their decision regardless of the harms it has done. I haven't found hitting the average person who did it to avoid inconveniences with a bunch of information about the vaccine to be very effective. They weren't terribly interested in the first place, so unless the harm done to them is significant and known they don't really care and just complain about it instead of opposing it.

The rare soul who genuinely trusts the government still exists. They're typically older people who have disconnected from the majority of daily life and are reliant on social security or another social welfare program for their primary income. I never appeal to the impact the decision will have on them directly, but instead talk about their families and legacies. I also find that pulling up some of the absolutely ludicrous purchasing contracts that the federal and state government(s) maintain where they pay ten or more times over market value for products to be a good argument against the efficiency of tax collection and government spending that people are receptive to.

For those who were threatened by the government or their employers and folded I have found taking a supportive position and providing information to work well. These people typically have already started researching on their own before or after the decision, but for whatever reason just weren't able to hold the line (in many cases they've been the sole earner for a family and just could not rationalize the potential risk of lost income). Most of the time they really just need someone to remind them that they are not going down some dangerous path to radicalization (even though they kind of are, depending on how long they walk it).

Don't bother trying to change the fanatical supporter's minds. At this point they're a lost cause and they don't want their mind to be changed. They're broken people and they're a danger to society and all those around them. When confronted by these people I present information that will hopefully cause them to start questioning their positions at a later date if they don't block it out entirely from memory, but I don't engage in argument directly.

That's the most upsetting part of this for me. That there is even one physician out there who thought that this was a risk reduction says a lot about how much groupthink there is in the scientific and medical communities.

I went in to my primary care earlier this year and asked for an IVM/HCQ prescription and was denied, but they told me that taking Aspirin was showing promise in studies. I recently went back in to my primary care to ask about IVM/HCQ again and was denied again. When I asked if they were still recommending Aspirin they said they were not and had never done so. They're systematically removing efficacious treatments as they are discovered and it disgusts me.

That this needed to be litigated in the first place is a disgrace. I'm happy that this result is on the books in Nevada and precedent has been set, but I don't see other challenges elsewhere taking the hint in the future unless there is a SCOTUS decision.

See, this is the kind of reporting I like to see. Date of the event stated multiple times in the video by multiple parties. Questions and answers filmed continuously, and text on the video indicating the date and location the event took place at. The longer the better, but this was a great piece of reporting.

This Mayo Monkey >points to self< carried a capsaicin dispenser for years to build up a tolerance. Was fun until I realized that I was losing the ability to taste normal foods so I cut back lol

I was recently listening to some old time radio that included ads for “Clean Burning Anthracite Coal” and that actually a rang a bell. Turns out Chinese and most Eurasian Coal is dirty, but Australian and American Coal burns significantly cleaner. It’s actually significantly worse fuel in terms of pollution not to mention the illogic of using fuel to transport fuel so that you “have a smaller carbon footprint”.

You’re right, and in that situation if I were an interested party like China I’d be picking a side and bankrolling them with my fiat (which would probably be the defacto global reserve currency at that point). Worked for the French, who played a massive role in the early years of the United States because of their financial support during the Revolutionary War.

War is not an outcome anyone should be cheering for. If you find yourself or witness someone else doing so, please stop and consider what a war actually is and what it requires of the participants, both the willing and unwilling.

As long as they immediately reaffirm bodily autonomy and health record privacy by ruling against a federal medical data repositories and mandates.

If you’re not afraid of war you really need to reconsider what it entails.
