I’m remaining cautious about Omicron
There are two ways that Omicron’s appearance can be explained. One is through natural evolution, likely enhanced by vaccine-resistant immune escape. The other is that it was created and released.
In light of its strange mutations, I think most people on this site would agree the latter is more likely. The chance of it being a natural variant is still possible. Either way, although I’m not necessarily afraid or expect this to be “the one,” I am cautiously watching.
The news burst appears very coordinated, and the appearance of this variant was strange. The fact that vaccines are already being worked on, as Chris mentioned, is also strange. There’s no doubt about that, and it should concern us in terms of restrictions.
On the other hand, I do find it strange that this virus has so many mutations. While one side of the public square is concerned about virus deaths, the other is often not concerned at all. I see an insidious variant as the perfect way to deal with one side while keeping the other in fear and sowing more division. We are not seeing a story of brute force, at least not mainly. What we see is an insidious plot where many pieces are being woven together to compliment each other and create ambiguous, mounting, and lasting damage. Hence, vaccine resistance and injuries, immune escape, possible long-term effects of Covid, and the combination of Covid illness and vaccines.
Although this variant may be unavoidable, I am suspicious. It’s possible this strain, in particular, could be designed to do maximum damage to those vaccinated, and there is a rush to get the third and fourth booster out before it reaches its peak.
Why all the mutations? Why this variant, and not others that could be just as dangerous to the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike? With signaling about things like smallpox from Gates, I think it might be wise to take a step back and reconsider what we know.
I think most people on this site would agree here, and I’m not saying this because anyone is “wrong.” I’m just adding my thoughts where I think some people who are aware of the dangers from government tyranny and mandatory vaccination be missing something.
One odd thing about the danger of immune escape: why don’t we get new variants out of highly vaccinated countries ? Why do the new variants always appear first in obscure third world countries ?
One explanation could be that the unvaccinated are tested way more exhaustively for covid than the vaccinated. Ensures the variants are first detected in the deplorables.
Notice that they are always sending out mixed messages? On one hand, the news will tell us that they don’t know if vaccines will provide immunity, and on the other, someone else on a like news channel will say it probably doesn’t.
They’re encouraging people to get boosters while opening them up to the idea of a fourth shot at the same time, I think because they know that some people who wouldn’t have gotten this booster will now decide to get the next for Omicron, and some will get both.
There are probably many immune escape variants out there, but it only makes sense for them to focus on one at a time.
