    Anyone who sees a billionaire donate any money needs to question it. There is no such thing as selfless for a billionaire. These people in many cases made their fortune from destroying lives and our planet.

    If you have the time and if you have a twitter account please use @/dontkillitbernie with this message "Bernie Sanders, as Chair of the Budget Committee, decides what goes in the COVID relief bill. It's his decision on whether a $15-per-hour minimum wage is included in the bill or not. If he keeps it in, it forces the Democrats to vote on it and means it has a chance of passing. If he takes it out, it means Bernie Sanders is killing the increase in minimum wage himself. We, the undersigned, have a clear message: Don't kill it Bernie!" and sign this petition: @t If Joe Manchin and Kristen Sinema are threatening to kill the stimulus bill over a 15$ min wage, we must call their bluff. In order for us to do that, the 15$ min wage MUST stay within the bill! Please urge Bernie as the Chair of the Budget Committee to not take the 15$ minimum wage, as this action will be used to throw him under the bus the moment corporate dems get the opportunity to do so.

    According to some TED Talk I saw years ago, people living in poverty tend not to think very far ahead. Not just because of sleep deprivation and malnutrition, but as a survival tactic, your brain doesn't expend resources when the future is extremely uncertain. You'd think the opposite would be true. You'd think people living in extreme luxury, with access to consultants would be able to plan very far ahead. And yet even if we accept that all rich people are emotionless sociopaths, just from a pragmatic perspective, the CEOs of these companies consistently make these nonsensical, short-sighted decisions. "If the people all die, you'll be king of nothing" the old gotcha statement goes. So what are we missing here? The only conclusion I can reach is that because wealth didn't bring them happiness, they have a death wish. And like... that's fine, but why do you have to take the rest of us out with you?

    Bill and Melinda Gates and their "foundation" are basically war profiteers at this point. And manipulating the vaccine patent like that for an actively mutating virus during a deadly global pandemic should be considered a crime against humanity.

    To be totally capitalist, not open sourcing the vaccine will cost million of jobs. Rich people are supposed to be "job Creators," but rich people end up just killing job after job. Why is there not a surplus of job with how much money the USA has thrown at all the rich people. (6 Trillion in March of 2020)

    It's easy to see the metaphor in Icke's "Reptilians" when seen through this lens. Lack of empathy, sociopathy, comes from the Reptilian part of the Human brain. It's associated with no empathy/ritual. Ritual. Keep that in mind. See Kubrick filmography from start to finish, hmm, throw Prometheus by Ridley Scott in there.


      Well the issue with Icke is that he actually thinks that they are real lizard people, but we can pretend it’s metaphorical

    Another 3 points on the 1 million AstraZeneca vaccines that came to South Africa: 1) They would have expired before we could have used most of it. 2) Preliminary tests show minimal efficacy against the new SA variant, i.e. they are basically useless. 3) We had to scrap them altogether and turn to J&J instead.

  • Jan Radtke

    So Oxford wanted to make their vaccine freely available. But wait, had it gone through testing and got government approval? No. would Oxford University have been able to manage a test- and apprpval process in multiple countries? No. So making an untested and not approved vaccine public domain is a pretty useless undertaking. But who wants to know that, Gates-bashing feels so much better.

    Gates' defense for flip flopping on the open source was that the mRNA vaccine was 'too difficult to make' or some shit like that, and then he said some stuff about how potential lack of quality control could sabotage the success ? I dont know, maybe thats legit? But even if it is who cares? Like, why not let people try? Oh, money.

    One the mentally different, the DNRs are certainly wrong, but the part about how they might be bad candidates for ventilators might be about the fact that they may not understand what is happening and may resist or try to remove it themselves. Notice it doesn't say they are bad candidtes, but "may". It's a guideline to evaluate the person't capacity to accept the treatment.

  • Konrad Komorowski
    Konrad Komorowski

    Ok, a lot of good points, but open sourced vaccine can be made by everyone, right? So correct me if I'm wrong but isn't vaccine something that shouldn't be made by anyone, but only by labs with appropriate equipment and "know how" (maybe with some authorisation by health organizations)? Well maybe it's something that I was brainwashed to think, but is it impossible that counties in need won't excessively exam vaccines from other companies (without certain standards) and that could potentially harm more people and further build distrust in vaccines in general? Think about cheaper alternatives for low quality clothing and now think about getting that quality injected into your body. Of course I don't try to defend billionaires and capitalism. But knowing Bill Gates accomplishments and way of thinking I don't he's greedy to that extend.

    IMO, Vaccines should be open source and free to protect everyone or as many people as possible, paying for a vaccine is biological blackmail. Keep up the work Cody! UK here, socialised medicine 🇬🇧🚑💉 Billionaires are doing great in America (financially)🇺🇸 ... not to save the poor with their charity. Also raise the minimum wage to a living wage! Billions are incomprehensible to us. Vaccines should be open source and free!!! ✨ I used to say eat the rich but let’s just call them out accurately and try and get change and also make them pay tax???

    To be fair and balanced TM©® on Veritasium Bill Gates did respond to the the fact that he asked for a not "open source" vaccine, claiming that vaccines are more complicated than jet engines and you couldn't have unsafe factories producing vaccines with maybe not so much safety and, this is a bit of my conclusion but, in this particular moment could be boldening of anti-vaxxers. But keeping the fair and balanced TM©® he did not mentioned anything about the lacking porduction of the astra zeneca vaccine. He did criticised other companies for not participating in the negotiations with oxford university, but it felt a bit weird. At the end of the day, he's still a billionaire and he'll probably have his interests in mind. Also it is hard to discuss this astra zeneca debacle without being technical or without technical knowledge of vaccine production,

    I live in Canada (US citizen) and my elderly neighbor was complaining about how the homeless are being housed in hotels. Along the lines of they don't work and they get to live it up. My response was, "They are homeless. It is easy for us to stay home and shelter cause we have a place to live. In N. America we don't care for our homeless population as we should. There is many reasons for people to be homeless outside of being "lazy". I don't think giving them unused rooms and some dignity during a pandemic is a bad thing." My neighbor is a good guy but damn is he so old. Having a job = having worth.
