What is missing from most COVID vaccine discussions is basic data. For example, questions not answered
- What is its rate of efficacy?
- How long does it last?
- What are the side effects and how often do they appear?
The political elite in D.C., along with the compliant media, has not focused on legitimate concerns and have done little to clarify vaccine skeptics’ misgivings. In order to restore trust, it is going to require humility, honesty, respect and empathy by those in charge, argues Christopher Roach in American Greatness:
Unfortunately, the managerial system raises them (those in charge) to be dissembling, haughty, and indifferent to those outside the corridors of power. The theater of democracy masks a system of hierarchy and a ruling class immune to public opinion and insulated from the harms they impose.
The Problem Is Trust
And the lack of trust results directly from the lies, exaggerations, and apparent indifference of the authorities. While they want to make vaccine resistance a story of conspiracy theories and individual selfishness, the lack of trust in them comes from their dishonesty and their lack of concern for the overall welfare of the people whom they are trying to persuade.
