If you stop watching each individual headline, diverge your eyes and step back like you’re looking at one of the classic Magic Eye 2D patterns, you just might start to see the 3D mainstream Covid narrative pivot right before your eyes.
For at least a year now, in print and on my podcast, I’ve been arguing that our Covid response has been draconian and that all of the efforts we’re pouring into vaccine propaganda and political bickering would be better served preparing ourselves mentally to come to terms with the fact that Covid is going to be with us forever.
I have criticized the media’s hysterical approach to the Omicron variant, and even argued recently that the “news” is going to have to make a seismic pivot in 2022 away from the narrative they’ve been peddling about vaccinations, lockdowns and mandates, because (a) the populace is tired of hearing about it and (b) “the other side of the story” is starting to leak out in the form of interviews with experts like Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Robert Malone, among others.
The narrative shift could be well on its way already, as Zero Hedge noted this weekend. For example, did you happen notice on Sunday that CDC Director Rochelle Walensky has all-of-a-sudden turned her focus to “people with comorbidities” and “our most at-risk”, as opposed to everybody?
This follows stunning comments from the former chairman of the UK’s vaccine taskforce, Dr. Clive Dix, who said this weekend that we should “treat the virus like the flu,” according to The Guardian. He also said that we should “end mass vaccination after the booster campaign”.
In what is being called a “major rethink of the UK’s Covid strategy”, Dix is now advocating for “reversing the approach of the past two years”, the report says.
Dix said: “We need to analyze whether we use the current booster campaign to ensure the vulnerable are protected, if this is seen to be necessary. Mass population-based vaccination in the UK should now end.”
Instead, Dix advocated for research into Covid immunity, which could help create vaccines that are specific to people with risk factors. It’s almost as if Dix and Walensky have somehow, magically, wound up on the same page from thousands of miles away.
But I’ll take a relaxing of government’s grip wherever I can get it.
“We now need to manage disease, not virus spread. So stopping progression to severe disease in vulnerable groups is the future objective,” Dix continued, telling The Guardian.
This has added fuel to an ongoing debate in the U.K. about whether or not a fourth vaccine dose is necessary, despite most older people who have received boosters still being “well protected” against Omicron.
