Duly noted. I will make sure in the future to make it clear how it's only about my current view of things and how I in NO WAY see it as a certain future, just what I think could be a possible agenda of higher STS. How I'm not stating it is inevitable, just their wishful thinking and my limited, so far conclusions about it all. Cause that's what it was. And it still stands as a strong contestant in my view, but that's me. I apologize for not making that perfectly clear and yes, it's ironic cause I have no doubt how they will fail, whatever their plans are. I hope it is still OK to discuss such conclusions here but for sure in a more external considering manner.As you said, it's ironic that you are advising others to relax but then post things like the above. I think you would benefit from stopping this kind of imagining of a 'parade of horribles' and see things from the bigger picture perspective and then simply watch as things unfold. There is NOTHING certain about the actual details of the near future. Sure, we can be fairly certain of what the INTENT of the PTB is, but we have plenty of evidence that their intent rarely goes to plan.
I agree and comply with the above. Just to make it clear how I obviously overacted emotionally and defensively (I realized that the very next morning but was working on my understanding of the reason for it) cause I thought it was not only about SOTTREADER 'freaking out' anymore, but instead about the right of the individual to process those shocks and then later have the right to act however they decide, to take the vaccination or not, no matter if it costs them their current job or some other freedoms. That was in the background of my overreacting and I realize it was mislead and probably NOT what Ant22 had in mind. So I apologize and thank you everyone who responded so far, it's actually why I am active here again, to be able to recognize such states through help of others and hope it will be taken as such - a lesson for me to learn. Thanks Joe.Well what you prefer does not seem, in this instance, to be inline with the ethos of this forum. In the context in which you wrote the above, and in the context of the point of this forum, it's pretty shocking. While Ant22 was trying to snap sottreader out of his freak out, your approach was to try to silence Ant22 in that endeavor, and instead let Sottreader 'go nuts' because "he'll learn a new lesson through pain"??
Not very empathetic. You've written about how you've been having a hard time of late, and we sympathize, but it would be a good idea if you would make extra efforts to not allow that emotional turmoil to come through in passive aggressive and somewhat manipulative attitude towards others here. As you know, there is enough chaos in society and, as you also know and appreciate, we try hard to make this space something of a haven of reason and calm. To do so, requires the awareness and efforts of all.
