From 2001 to 2021 was more than a bumpy road
When it comes to foreign policy and future perspectives of the USA, the signs aren’t wildly hopeful. President Biden just opened future relations with one of this country’s two “near-peer threats” (as the U.S. military likes to call them) by agreeing publicly that Vladimir Putin was a soul-less “killer.”
Meanwhile, his secretary of state and national security advisor had a distinctly rocky meeting in Alaska with their Chinese counterparts from that other near-peer threat, China.
And now add to this wise policy the omnipotence of the medical experts who do not get tired to explain to you for 14 months that you can only escape the risk of dying from Covid-19 if you get vaccinated.Then add the trillions of damage that the national economies must somehow cover and do this with ever new debt and money printing, - then you know what will come out in the end.
In this sense I put the saga of climate change for the time being to the files and wait for reason and insight.
is a very quiet place. It can get cold when the wind blows from the north, but the light in the morning is unforgettable.
But the best thing about a "small" dog like this is that he automatically is enforceing many with bad intentions to keep distance and this for many years.
Also nothing beats the fun and experience of having such a confident dog as a companion. He doesn't ignore anything, he doesn't miss anything and he doesn't get involved in arguments but he is strong enough when it is needed.
and it is important to practice teamwork again and again. The lock-downs undermine culture and social life. Actually, this would be exactly the right time for a report from Myanmar or about the UN mission in the Western Sahara. Good thing I have my four-legged friends.
Everything is in lock-down in the evening. Everything has to close at 6 p.m. but the lights still illuminate the small town all night.
It has not yet been proven that independent thinking is forbidden.
But questions are definitely not yet forbidden.
1. can i stop wearing the mask after vaccination?
2. can the restaurants, pubs, bars, hairdressers etc. reopen and all work normally?
3. will i be resistant to covid19 after vaccination?
Government: no! we can't guarantee that.
4. but at least i will no longer be contagious to others?
Government: no! we can't guarantee.
5. ok, if we vaccinate all children, will school go on as normal?
6. but if i am vaccinated, can i stop *social distancing*?
7. if there are severe side effects after vaccination, will the pharmaceutical company be liable?
8. if i get vaccinated with my grandpa, can we hug again?
9. if i am vaccinated and my friends are too, do the corona visitation requirements no longer apply to us and we can see each other again?
10. so if all this is supposed to convince people anyway, do you at least have enough vaccine doses for everyone?
11. if you don't have enough vaccine doses anyway, but everyone should get vaccinated, have you asked the Russians in the last 6 months?
12. okay. did you ask china?
13. ahja. did you ask Cuba?
14. if statistically the virus won't kill me anyway, why should i get vaccinated?
Government: to protect others.
15. so if i get vaccinated, the others will be 100% safe because i won't infect them?
Government: no! probably not.
16. will the lockdown end on 14.02., as announced, when (supposedly thanks to vaccinations, among other things) an incidence below 50 is reached?
Government: no! probably not.
17. yes, but will at least cinemas, theatres and stadiums reopen thanks to vaccines?
18. why should i get vaccinated then?
Government: so that the virus doesn't kill you.
19. are you sure the virus won't kill me after a vaccination?
Government: no! probably the virus will continue to mutate.
20. ok. and why exactly is it likely that the virus will continue to mutate?
Government: because we vaccinate so much.
