  1. I agree there is no moral obligation to the masses and will bend as needed for self preservation. The fallacy we play between our ears are theses false dichotomies are all we have. Forward/backward, in/out, good/bad.....
  2. Feelings and beliefs....different matter than obligation.

    Why shouldn't we all just call "misinformation" a lie. At least admit to calling people liars....if you accuse people of something don't be shy. Why pu$$yfoot around...or let sleeping dogs lie....

    Patient negative and now is positive

    The billing department told the provider to "get a positive Covid test, we can bill more". The lab made it happen, more $$$ to bill for....

  8. Sorry, but I hold only to my own morals. If they meld within the framework of society, so be it. Each yin has a yang....I bend as needed. I do not consult the masses of society for my choices in life, neither do I hold them responsible for my decisions and they should expect no less of me. Society is a framework, but I still am an individual.
  9. I am one of 7.8 billion people on Earth, my decision regarding one aspect of my personal health is of little consequence to public health.
  10. I have no moral obligation to the masses.
  11. Everything one does affects others....this is a invalid argument. Every decision is personal and affects everyone else. It is an individual decision based on each circumstance given in each moment. I am free to make my own choices. I am not beholden to others, only myself. To claim otherwise, would be false to the notion of the essence of freedom itself. I choose freedom: "The last of the human freedoms: to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." - Victor Frankl
  12. Elvis is alive. Covid is not real. I am vaccinated against idiocracy. Covid is real. Everything on the Internet is true. Trust all government officials, they have your interest at heart. To thine own self, be true.

    Natural Immunity

    This article and small data set address neither beliefs or herd immunity. The last two paragraphs extrapolate a study of 7,700 to 5-6 million, which may lead to unsubstantiated correlation and incorrect conclusions. 7,700 new cases in total 3,000 new cases with prior vaccination 72 new cases with prior infection ?? of cases with prior infection AND prior vaccination (or are these counted in both groups or excluded from both) ?? of the prior vaccination OR prior infection that were never symptomatic (enough) to get tested (will never know) out of 5-6 million The final verdict of vaccination or natural immunity may never be known. Too many cooks in the COVID data kitchen. Maybe in 50 years, when all the responsible parties are dead, will there be any unbiased conclusions discernible from this mess.

    Natural Immunity

    Natural infection vs vaccination: Which gives more protection? Nearly 40% of new COVID patients were vaccinated - compared to just 1% who had been infected previously. Coronavirus patients who recovered from the virus were far less likely to become infected during the latest wave of the pandemic than people who were vaccinated against COVID, according to numbers presented to the Israeli Health Ministry. Health Ministry data on the wave of COVID outbreaks which began this May show that Israelis with immunity from natural infection were far less likely to become infected again in comparison to Israelis who only had immunity via vaccination. More than 7,700 new cases of the virus have been detected during the most recent wave starting in May, but just 72 of the confirmed cases were reported in people who were known to have been infected previously – that is, less than 1% of the new cases. Roughly 40% of new cases – or more than 3,000 patients – involved people who had been infected despite being vaccinated. With a total of 835,792 Israelis known to have recovered from the virus, the 72 instances of reinfection amount to 0.0086% of people who were already infected with COVID. By contrast, Israelis who were vaccinated were 6.72 times more likely to get infected after the shot than after natural infection, with over 3,000 of the 5,193,499, or 0.0578%, of Israelis who were vaccinated getting infected in the latest wave.
