First of all, please refer to this thorough and excellent review of the paper by Byram Bridle, and a list of scientific reasons why the aforementioned paper should never have been published. This paper indeed went through peer review. Who were the reviewers? I smell an investigation coming your way.
My take? The point of publishing a low level piece of writing like this is to create division. It is that simple. There is no scientific merit in this piece (I will demonstrate this) and the message is not science-based: the message is that the ‘unvaccinated’ need to be ‘vaccinated’.
Risk among unvaccinated people cannot be considered self-regarding, and considerations around equity and justice for people who do choose to be vaccinated, as well as those who choose not to be, need to be considered in the formulation of vaccination policy.
You know what that means? It is difficult to read between the lines of their contrived bullshit to discern meaning here, yes, but basically they are saying “Screw you and your body autonomy. You don’t deserve rights for choosing what you chose and this should actually be written into law.”
A Canadian mother and researcher has been documenting the use of this kind of misinformation to collate the usages on the ‘Twitter’ platform and specifically, how the use of such language from our ‘leader’ as ‘DO WE TOLERATE THESE PEOPLE’, in reference to the people who have chosen not be be injected with the experimental COVID-19 products, can lead to division, hate and chaos. This is the goal.
