Alex Berenson is explaining how to talk to well-meaning but confused acquaintances about COVID vaccines. Or, rather, how not to do it:
Don’t overwhelm them with detail. Marek’s disease, antibody-dependent-enhancement risk, healthy vaccine user bias, age stratification, clinical trial design manipulation, unadjusted confounders, declining titers, B-cell maturation, booster schedules, anti-idiotype antibodies, spike protein migration, vaccine induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia – don’t go there.Unreported Truths.
The scary part is that I know exactly what each term means and can hold forth on each for at least 15 minutes with numbers, graphs, and a bibliography. I could have used that brain space for something more relevant to my interests and professional pursuits but no, I have to remember the extraordinarily boring (to me) shit about spike protein migration and declining titers. Because I wasn’t given a choice.
This is one of several reasons I will never vote for anybody who runs for any office as a Democrat for as long as I shall live. I didn’t want to learn about ADE but I was forced to against my will. This cannot be forgiven.
