Goho: Pandemic confusion

Michael Goho

Existential Introspection

IT IS hard to see the full picture regarding the truth about this pandemic.

There are conflicting narratives that have arisen and these opposing narratives must be investigated as fairly and objectively as possible.

One, the vaccines are unsafe and experimental, and we are part of a major guinea pig type situation with a higher agenda of government control, and depopulation. Big pharma and big government stand to financially benefit from this. However, is it truly plausible that there are these major institutions collaborating for a profiteering agenda? I would not so easily rule out that possibility. Are there really selfish agendas that prevail over the complete goodness and benefit of mankind? Has the world become all the more malevolent and evil?

There are said to be more affordable yet cheaper drugs that have been readily available in the market for years, notably Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin, which are said to serve as both prophylaxis and treatment for Covid-19. These drugs are said to be downplayed because it goes against the conventional narrative of pushing for more vaccination and for the more expensive conventional drugs such as Dexamethasone, Remdesivir, Toxilucimab, etc.

Solid and raw data is critical in this but unfortunately, there will always be biased narratives that float around, which create more confusion. How does one even begin to discern the proper thing to be done with so much disinformation floating all over. The decisions we make on the next steps will be vital in molding our future generation.

The repeated implementation of lockdowns and mask mandates are said to have no real impact, but only asserts more tyranny and control that are detrimental to the overall flourishing of the economy. Big media is said to also play a huge role in fearmongering and creating more hysteria. What would be the motive in perpetrating fake news that will destroy more lives? We need sound and reliable data from unbiased sources.

The asymptomatic transmitter narrative is also questionable and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests have been said to be ineffective and unreliable. To put it simply, we can simply go on and have infected individuals isolate, instead of such drastic measures which tarnish society.

As for the origins of this virus, we still do not even know whether it is natural or lab derived or whether it was deliberately or a natural byproduct.

However, on the opposite side of the spectrum, there is a strong push to vaccinate everyone regardless of the brand as soon as possible as the only path out of this pandemic. If the vaccines have proven to be very effective, then we should be all for it. However, is that really the case? Are vaccine injuries prevalent and really unreported? Do they downplay the negative effects of the vaccine? Are the vaccines totally reliable? Has it really proven beneficial in preventing hospitalization or even death? Are the vaccines effective against all types of variants?

While I am not against a vaccine, hopefully, we have a safe and effective vaccine that has been tested thoroughly. Hopefully a pro-science, pro-life, pro-safety, pro-choice, pro medicine, pro-truth, and pro-objectivity narrative prevail which provides maximum benefit for people in general and in the long run. But are we just jumping on the bandwagon blindly? Or is this the responsible thing to do as citizens? Is it wrong to think critically and skeptically and demand more concrete answers?

But what might also be problematic there is the total surrender of freedom and civil liberties, especially with the possibility of mandating vaccine passports. These mandates are dangerous to real democracy. Ultimately, we should have the power to make decisions for our own bodies. People who choose not to be vaccinated should not be mislabelled or demonized as selfish members of society.

May we discern between fake and real news. May the absolute truth that will save our future generations prevail. May we be guided on the right path in this time of uncertainty.
