Let the Boomers boom

There’s been an interesting discussion on SocialGalactic about one’s responsibility to parents who refuse to listen to one’s advice about the Covid “vaccines”:

My take on the matter is that they are adults, they are responsible for their own actions, and all you can do is advise them honestly to the best of your ability. If it kills them, then bury them and mourn them. If it harms them to the point that they can’t care for themselves, then warehouse them at their own expense.

Your primary responsibility is to your wife and your children. You should not, and you are not expected to, impose a lower standard of living on them simply because your parents are narcissists seeking to live forever. Given their grasshopper nature, most Boomer parents are not going to be leaving you or their grandchildren the sort of legacy that their parents left them. (Yes, I am very well aware there are exceptions, and that’s wonderful, but we’re talking about the macro average here.) That’s as it is, and there is nothing you can do about it, but you can control your own actions in this regard.

Honoring one’s father and mother does not involve financially supporting their every fear and whim. Sometimes it means keeping your mouth shut. Sometimes it means speaking out. Sometimes it means helping them out, and sometimes it means permitting them to experience the consequences of their decisions.

I do not, however, recommend actually telling them this in advance. That’s manipulative. Just tell them what you see as the risks, as best you understand them, do your best to dissuade them if you think that’s the right thing to do in their particular medical situation, and then let the dice fall where they fall. Because, in the end, it’s their choice, not yours.

Let the Boomers boom. They’re going to anyhow.

Meanwhile, it doesn’t look like it will take much longer for scientists to confirm the hypothesis that the “cure” poses higher risks than the disease:

At least 181 people have died in the US according to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), after taking experimental vaccines meant to combat a 99.4{3549d4179a0cbfd35266a886b325f66920645bb4445f165578a9e086cbc22d08} to 99.8{3549d4179a0cbfd35266a886b325f66920645bb4445f165578a9e086cbc22d08} survival rate virus, the death toll for which a team of researchers in one state found may be inflated by as much as 40{3549d4179a0cbfd35266a886b325f66920645bb4445f165578a9e086cbc22d08}.

A number of international groups of doctors and scientists have issued warnings over the vaccines, which are still in the experimental stage and have not been approved by the FDA for general use, but are being injected under FDA “emergency use authorization.” The UK Guardian reports that in UK, health authorities warned people with food or other allergies not to take the Pfizer BioTech vaccine. Severe allergic reactions have also been noted in the Moderna experimental vaccine.

A CDC registry reports that, as of the end of December, experimental COVID vaccinations have so far caused over 7,844, adverse reactions, at least 3,150 of which have rendered people “unable to work,” or perform “daily activities.”

Last February, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar granted blanket immunity from lawsuits to COVID vaccine manufacturers, so that companies “cannot be sued for money damages in court” over injuries related to the administration or use of products to treat or protect against COVID.
