The resistance of the unvaccinated saved us

Societies around the world are divided, politicians have permanently damaged cohesion with radical corona measures and above all with the compulsory vaccination. Mood was raised against the unvaccinated for so long that two camps formed – or rather, two warring factions. But now the war of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated has lasted long enough, more and more voices of reason are being raised. However, the question remains how long it will take to fill up the rifts within societies and whether apologies will suffice…

There is already one adapted to the Australian readership Version by Australian author Peter Chris. Australia and Canada are known to have had particularly draconian “pandemic” regulations.

What we have learned from hating the unvaccinated

von Susan Dunham

The battlefield is still warm after Canada’s war on the unvaccinated. Measures have eased and both sides are stumbling back into what appears to be the old normal – except that a new and present injury has been inflicted on the people we were trying to break. And nobody wants to talk about it.

Just a few weeks ago, the avowed aim of our own leaders was to make life unbearable for the unvaccinated. And as a vicarious collective, we have violently multiplied that pain, taking the struggle into our families, friendships, and workplaces. Today we face the harsh truth that none of this was warranted — and uncover a valuable lesson in the process.

It was a rapid slide from righteousness to cruelty, and however much we may blame our leaders, we are responsible for falling into the trap despite better judgement.

We knew that dwindling immunity was putting large numbers of the fully vaccinated on par with the shrinking minority of the unvaccinated, but we marked them for a special hunt. We said they hadn’t “done the right thing” by handing their bodies over to state care – although we knew that principled resistance to such a thing is priceless under any circumstances. And we are fooled into believing that going into another ineffective lockdown is their fault, not the fault of toxic politics.

And so it was through the willful ignorance of science, civil society and politics that we pressured the unvaccinated as much as we did.

We invented a new rubric for the good citizen and, since we weren’t one ourselves, took pleasure in scapegoating anyone who didn’t meet the requirements. After months of lockdowns, it just felt good to blame and belittle someone.

So we cannot hold our heads high as if we think we have logic, love, or truth on our side while maliciously wishing death on the unvaccinated. The best we can do is to be aware of our radical inhumanity for trampling on so many.

Most of us who pilloried the noncompliant did so because it seemed like a surefire victory, as if the unvaccinated would never come through unscathed. In fact, the promised new normal looked unbeatable, so we embraced it and made punching bags out of the holdouts.

But betting against them has been a crushing embarrassment for many of us, who have now learned that the mandates only held the power we gave them. It was not through quiet compliance that we could avoid endless domination by pharmaceutical companies and medical checks at every door. It was thanks to the people we were trying to tear down.

For those of us who are not among the hopeless few praying for the return of mandates, we may find a certain inner Gratitude for the unvaccinated. We took the bait by hating her, but her persistence bought us the time to realize we were wrong.

For now, it looks like the measures are returning, but this time there’s hope that more of us will see them for what they are: rising authoritarianism that doesn’t care about our well-being. If there is an enemy, it is the government’s trust game and transparent attempt to tear us apart. Heeding this looks like our best shot at salvation.
