Mea culpa!

Since my latest post was deleted by Facebook and its community, I confess that I referred to official statistics published by Luxembourg’s Ministry of Health on 6 October 2021. On page 18 of this report, you can see that 49.2% of patients in intensive care were partially or fully vaccinated. Entirely my mistake to conclude that half of the patients in intensive care were partially or fully vaccinated. My bad.

I also confess that I referred to the findings of an article published on 16 August 2021 in Science – a magazine known to the expert Facebook community for its penchant for conspiracy theories – where similar data on Israel were reported.

I now know that you cannot trust official data coming from a parliamentary democracy such as Israel, which showed that out of the 514 persons admitted to hospital on 15 August 2021, 59% were “fully vaccinated” (87% in this group were 60 years or older). This is clearly a conspiracy theory spread by the Israeli Ministry for Health, which should be removed from the public discourse of the Facebook community.

To conclude, I would like to confess that I referred to a study by Subramanian et al, which was published in European Journal of Epidemiology on 30 September 2021. This study analysed the impact of vaccination rates on the prevalence of infections in 68 countries and 2,947 counties in the United States. When concluding that there is “a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people”, these scientists are simply spreading lies and nonsense. I am ashamed on their behalf and promise never to mention their names in public again.

So I would like to thank Facebook, its well-meaning community and the kind people who denounced my post for opening my eyes to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I am pleased you are there and willing to help and will enter into a spirit of obedience.

With this insight, I now join the tyranny of the willing majority who courageously, and in responsible solidarity, obey the decidedly indirect mandatory vaccination and the indisputable authority of the state.

Let us follow the rules and let us believe in the truths invented on a daily basis by those in power, Facebook and its esteemed community, solely for our common good.

Let us believe, as our excellent guardians keep telling us, that we can only truly be free, when we obey.
