christine grady (who seems to have kept her maiden name) has been prolific in her writings, sucked up grant after grant from NIH, and appears to have the ethical grounding of a hungry cane snake.
her LATEST PIECE is yet another foray into interpretive bioethics for fun and power. it’s a seriously ethically challenged white-wash of vaccine mandates and pressure with large dollop of ostracization and vilification to round it out.
this is not ethics policy, it’s a propogandist’s user guide to sidestepping morality and gaslighting and othering those who fail to fall in line.
we’re off to a bad start with “The coronavirus pandemic continues to hinder the ability of businesses to operate at full capacity” because, of course, it hasn’t. the rules and regulations imposed by governments in futile and ineffective response did this. places that did not adopt them did not have these issues. blaming pandemic response on the pandemic itself is strike one.
your vaccine protects me and stops spread. we know this to be 100% false. even CDC and NIH have said so. the evidence is now overwhelming that the vaxxed not only get more covid than the unvaxxed, but unlike their unvaxxed peers, likely never develop proper sterilizing immunity.
