Final Word from Thursday, July 23, 2020

A Soviet propaganda poster from 1950 shows a father, mother and son gazing into the great beyond, with a caption in red: "Our future - communism!" Another shows two Soviet People moving "Forward, to the victory of communism!," with Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin covering their backs. Replace "communism" with "vaccine," and welcome to 2020! If all the propaganda we are hearing is true, we'll have a covid-19 vaccine by Jan. of next year, and the world will gradually be saved from the highly infectious disease that leaves dead bodies in its wake. Another possibility is that highly profitable vaccines will be rushed to market that are either ineffective or that cause even worse health problems than the virus itself, which would turn the idea of Health First completely on its head. And then there is the possibility that there will never be a covid shot, because, like communism, the promise of a vaccine is merely an opiate that sedates the masses as the world around them crumbles. [ Czech Republic Soviet Union USSR Karl Friedrich Frederick Vladimir Joseph ]
