I’m afraid Covid-zero has become a religion and *any* acknowledgement of reality from someone on the political left is now considered apostasy. Thank you for your advocacy 🙏

Zero Covid was always completely delusional and it certainly has become a religion, alas. It’s kind of a shock in a way that people still believe it, but I guess they do. Some-fucking-how.
The “science” of Long Covid is a good example of this too. According to the Long Covid panickers, all basing their beliefs on the results of a lot of flaky studies and some Twitter anecdotes, Long Covid has a very high prevalence, decreases your IQ to that of a snail, kids get it at (somehow) a 250% rate, and the vaccines do nothing against it or even Covid itself. Because SCIENCE!!!!! (Believe it!)
Covid sucks. But being realistic about it is a better option and hurts far fewer people.
