What Made Us So Compliant With Insane, Tyrannical COVID Policies?; CDC to get overhaul after major ‘public mistakes’ in COVID response, and other C-Virus related stories

What Made Us So Compliant With Insane, Tyrannical COVID Policies?
A society ridden with fear will acquiesce to any policy that promises safety. How do we reduce ambient levels of fear?
I’m resuming my occasional series discussing the ground conditions that make society susceptible to pandemania. See my last pandemania post if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
I’m moved to resume this series because of some conversations I’ve had over the last few days that reminded me of why I am not letting the issue drop.
A man, I’ll call him Kyle, shared a story with me last weekend. He was a nursing home administrator who, without much question, because it was necessary to keep his job, got the mRNA injections.
Immediately following the second, he had an anaphylactic reaction and was rushed to the emergency room.
He barely survived.
Subsequently, he had to leave his job because it was requiring all staff to receive booster injections. He shared his experience on social media, but his posts were removed for violating community standards.
Months later he looked himself up in the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS, to see if his case had been reported. It hadn’t.
Kyle didn’t seem angry at what had happened to him, but his trust in the system will probably never be restored.
Others I talked to are not so equanimous.
They are furious, and their fury does not diminish when they are told to forgive and forget, with no accountability for the people who enforced COVID-19 policies and no reason to think such a thing won’t happen again. --->READ MORE HERE

CDC to get overhaul after major ‘public mistakes’ in COVID response:
The head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced plans to overhaul the agency Wednesday — while admitting to major “mistakes” in handling the pandemic.
“For 75 years, CDC and public health have been preparing for COVID-19, and in our big moment, our performance did not reliably meet expectations,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement.
“I want us all to do better and it starts with CDC leading the way,” she said of her agency’s more than 11,000 staff.
In a separate interview, Walensky said of the pandemic response, “It’s not lost on me that we fell short in many ways.”
“We had some pretty public mistakes, and so much of this effort was to hold up the mirror … to understand where and how we could do better.”
She shared a similar message in a video breaking the news Wednesday to staffers, many of whom may be reshuffled in the “reset,” one person who saw it told Bloomberg.
“Prior to this pandemic, our infrastructure within the agency and around the country was too frail to tackle what we confronted with COVID-19,” she said, according to the insider.
“To be frank, we are responsible for some pretty dramatic, pretty public mistakes — from testing, to data, to communications,” she reportedly admitted --->READ MORE HERE
