Did you know that vaccines are “experimental gene therapies”, GMOs that modify our DNA? Did you know that the whole Covid is a scam, with false counting of deaths, masks that are useless (even that mammasantissima Fauci says so, in a number of “secret” but strangely public emails) and asymptomatic and not contagious? Did you know that virologists spend their time arguing with each other or being on TV (but it is not clear what they should be dealing with, since the pandemic is fake)? Did you know that the anti-Covid vaccines will all die in two years? Did you know that fermented papaya cures everything but vaccines? Do you know that there is an “old science”, obviously outdated, as you can easily see for yourself, but only if there is the Moon in Scorpio, are you oriented towards the East and you have some beneficial cow manure next to you?
No you can’t know. Because this is all nonsense. At the moment, however, they are among the most recurrent, visible and widespread in the vast world of the web, especially on social networks. Where they work – in the strategy of those who, well aware and sometimes (not always) not at all stupid, build and spread them – by luring the ignorant. Not bad, not necessarily stupid (but it helps), not despicable, but certainly ignorant.
How ignorant we were once upon a time. If we didn’t know one thing, we didn’t know it. And sometimes we apologized: in the world of hard-won education for all, it was really bad to be ignorant. And yes, it was also something to be ashamed of. At the limit, she was shown only among friends, at the bar, and stayed there.
Today we are ignorant very badly, we are ignorant with a lot of pretensions, with the reversal of the burden of proof: show me that the thing you know exists, that it is worth knowing, that it serves something, that whoever you are – university professor, researcher, simple graduate, in any capacity expert or connoisseur or scholar of anything, but even, sometimes, humble applicator of the basic principles of logic – you have the right to say it, and this right is on par with my right not to know it and in any case to contradict you.
Today’s ignorance, which flourishes in the midst of the greatest diffusion and accessibility of knowledge ever seen on the planet, has interesting psychological (even psychiatric, indeed) and even sociological implications. So much so that it also has its own theory, an ideology of ignorance, of incompetence – we see it in politics – as a guarantee of “purity” super partes (in fact, certain ignorances are not contaminated by the slightest trace of knowledge: they are perfect , in their own way).
The thing would even be comical, if it were not dangerous, especially in this equally unprecedented moment of pandemic at the time of globalization.
Because it is inevitable that all this mass of cosmic nonsense infiltrates our daily life, and can attempt to make important choices. That of getting vaccinated, that of continuing to wear a mask, that of accepting measures and restrictions, that of expecting correct spacing and ventilation (ah, if the concept of spreading the virus with aerosol had the same press office as the amazing lie. of “vaccine gene therapy”!).
So we prudentists and cautionists find ourselves pointed out as a “flock that loves the health dictatorship”, “robots indoctrinated by TV” (but have they ever seen certain broadcasts?), “Covidiots” by people who would not pass a fifth grade exam, but on social media he contradicts anyone, because “he read an article where everything is explained and he opened his eyes”.
Meanwhile, Jenner, Pasteur, Sabin, Fleming, Golgi, Madame Curie, Semmelweis, Lister and I would say even the good Galileo are turning in the grave. If they lived today, do you know how many would write on their social networks “enough with the health dictatorship, enough with scientism”?
