“The boost in vaccinations comes amid a devastating wave of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths driven by the hypertransmissible delta variant, which now accounts for nearly all cases in the US. The surge stands to rival the country's worst wave of the pandemic, which peaked in January 2021 with average daily new cases around 200,000. The country is now averaging over 130,000 cases a day, and that figure is still climbing.”

Please get vaccinated.

(If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the countries that’s hoarding the vaccines from the rest of the world… because profit before people is a great long-term strategy, I guess. I wonder if those dickhead spreadsheet wizards understand how variants arise. More than likely they do, but who cares, because profits amirite? Asshats.)

And those of you looking down on and ridiculing folks who don’t want to get vaccinated, maybe consider – yet again – who the real villains are here.

Edward Snowden explains it beautifully: “conspiracy theories do not inculcate powerlessness, so much as they are the signs and symptoms of powerlessness itself.”

(And I specifically exclude bigots & the alt-right, etc., from this. Fuck those fascists. I mean folks who are getting screwed by the system and disinformation.)

@aral
Does that include anyone critical of CRT (such as I think this quote from that page expresses).

Is it possible to disagree with critical race theory without being alt-right?
