I mean, I really hope that I don’t need to explain to any of my followers why “Let’s eugenically breed a race of ubermenschen to solve all of the world’s problems!” is a bad idea, but I’d just like to highlight how this whole thing is premised upon the neoliberal assumption that our principal problem is a lack of geniuses.

The thing is, we’ve got lots of geniuses right now! Even a fair number of rich ones, potentially in positions to make the world better! But the thing is that a lot of them are focused on things like “designing new apps” or “mining crypto-currencies” or “optimizing search algorithms”, because our society heavily, heavily incentivizes those things, while focus on systemic issues is increasingly shunned. And this isn’t because some stupid person somewhere in the woodwork is consciously deciding to make the world work; it is an emergent property of how our economy is structured, and the ideologies that surround it, and my strong intuition is that giving someone more raw intelligence does not, of itself, do anything to make them less susceptible to ideology.

How many “geniuses” did poorly in school because they had food insecurity and went to class hungry? How many geniuses couldn’t afford college? How many geniuses had to work multiple jobs to support their families? How many geniuses in one area had to get a job in a different area? How many geniuses had a brilliant idea or invention that wasn’t funded because it wouldn’t be profitable?

Idk I feel like having social safety nets that people can use to pursue whatever it is they’re good at and or passionate about without having to worry about profit or pay would be much better for geniuses than eugenics

“The enemies of David were a numerous and united band, and because they so unanimously condemned the persecuted one, they were apt to take it for granted that their verdict was a right one. “What everyone says must be true,” is a lying proverb based upon the presumption which comes of large combinations. Have we not all agreed to hound the man to the death, and who dare hint that so many great ones can be mistaken? Yet the persecuted one lays the axe at the root by requiring his judges to answer the question whether or not they were acting according to justice. It were well if men would sometimes pause, and candidly consider this. Some of those who surrounded Saul were rather passive than active persecutors; they help their tongues when the object of royal hate was slandered; in the original, this first sentence appears to be addressed to them, and they are asked to justify their silence. Silence gives consent. He who refrains from defending the right is himself an accomplice in the wrong.”

“Mainstream media finally finding out about the Hard Drive from Hell. Now forensics proves it is Hunter’s laptop” LOL Look, it’s time for Dementia Joe to resign. Otherwise, he won’t be just impeached. He will be removed. Hunter could not make any financial transactions with Joe’s knowledge and allegedly participation. KarmaLa cannot wait for the moment when Joe is gone.

“More chance of getting these complications from the case of the flu than from the vaccines” This is nothing new, nor particular to the mRNA vaccines,- stop spreading misinformation. 

Why don’t you stop spreading Big Pharma’s propaganda? Look up what Informed Consent is, my problem is that most people aren’t giving it for these clinical trials. Flu vaccines are given yearly at the places where I work, this novel jab is far more extreme in terms of adverse effects. We had never seen the like with any other innoculation. Aside from problematic additives like PEG and persistent lipid nanoparticles mRNA technology carries with it entirely new risks because of how it works. Of course, I don’t expect you to understand that because you are scientifically illiterate 🤦.

As you know my stance on the jab falls more in line with that of Dr. Roger Hodkinson but this is an important PSA from a less skeptical MD:

I am a physician and immunologist in PA. I’ve become increasingly concerned that with over 20% of the American population already naturally infected, indiscriminate vaccination of such already infected folks is where the majority of side-effects may be happening. So, if you (or a loved one) have had, or believe you may have had, a COVID-19 infection, please get an IgG antibody screen and if your are immune consider delaying your vaccination for up to a year. This is why I have been suggesting that all folks at risk #ScreenB4Vaccine.

This approach makes sense for several reasons:

1)If you have IgG antibodies you are highly likely to be immune.

2) If you’ve been previously infected, getting vaccinated could cause an inflammatory reaction to remaining viral antigens in your system.

3) If you have natural immunity, you will free up a vaccine dose for someone who is not immune.
