Before today's post, three reader questions:
Q1: Will the Novavax vaccine be long lasting like most other traditional vaccines, compared to the current quickly waning mRNA vaccines available? Perhaps Novavax would be a one and done type of jab?
C: Yes. Bear always in mind, long lasting and quickly waning vary from recipient to recipient.
Q2: While we are now aware of some of the possible adverse reactions (e.g. myocarditis) the current mRNA vaccines may cause...do they also have any long lasting or permanent damage to our innate immune system after multiple jabs or do things reset and go back to normal once the vaccine wanes or wears off completely?
C: Yes. The mRNA injections have many potential adverse effects, these vary from person to person. Yes, the false priming of the immune system, from the back end, tends to reduce effectiveness. This is because the immune system is triggered then operates when an intruder is detected. If none appears, the immune system winds down. Just as the immune system remembers an intruder and will quickly counter-attack any intrusive microbe which resembles a known invader. If the immune system is given too many false kick-starts, it will learn to start up slowly. This slower-than-normal reaction is not beneficial, obviously. The effect can be permanent in some recipients of the injection.
Q3. Will 2022 be a year where a lot of corruption and corrupt groups/individuals are revealed to the public?
C: This question has two parts, is more corruption occurring and how much of what corruption does happen will be found out?
The answer to the first question is, this depends on how corruption is defined. Some people consider corruption to be a political campaign for a winning candidate they do not like. By an averaged level of what has been considered criminal in nature, over many years, it is decreasing slightly but not to a material, it-makes-a-difference amount.
The second part of the question is almost certainly to be no, but free will operates at the current moments in the area of this question. Corruption scandals will be buried before they can sprout, as much as possible, for political advantage and to avoid political damage. Incumbents are feeling significant pressure around the world.
The current challenge facing incumbent officials around the world is authoritarianism. Many have proceeded as if human motivation procedure has been reversed. The best way to motivate over time is to provide an incentive. Rewards. The second very effective way is to force, coerce, threaten and demand. These methods work until threats, dangers and fears are withdrawn or fade. The artificial fear encouraged by officials, and resulting effects, are increasingly being seen badly. Against this backdrop, much effort will be made to conceal corruption to avoid scandal. We mean the corrupt discoverers; corrupt actors always attempt concealment. What we are saying is, at the moment it is not to be expected that officials who might prosecute a corruption case, will do so until political advantage can be extracted.
