Perceived invincibility from the threat of SARS-CoV2 may be undermining efforts globally to reach herd immunity with COVID-19, researchers conclude in analyzing survey responses from more than 200,000 people across 51 countries.
James Leonhardt, PhD, associate professor of marketing at the University of Nevada in Reno, and colleagues write that controlling the disease requires that people be both concerned about taking preventive measures, such as wearing a mask, and be willing to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Findings were published online yesterday in PLOS ONE.
However, these “prosocial” actions may depend on people’s level of perceived invincibility, their data show. The ties between invincibility and low desire to take prosocial action are particularly prominent in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, where there is greater focus on autonomy and individual freedoms, the researchers say.
Leonhardt told Medscape Medical News that they expected to find, and did find, that high levels of “perceived invincibility” were correlated with low levels of wanting to help prevent the spread of the disease and low levels of vaccination.
What they didn’t expect to find, he said, was that the factor that made the difference in whether those with perceived invincibility were motivated to help prevent COVID-19 in themselves or others was whether they came from a culture of “collectivism,” meaning they believed that their own health was dependent on the health of the community as a whole.
Dr James Leonhardt
He explained the importance of the collectivist mentality: “Even if I think I’m invincible but I’m in a more collectivistic culture, my feelings of invincibility are going to have less of an effect on whether I want to get vaccinated,” he said. So people with the collective mindset who feel invincible may say [that] although they don’t feel at risk themselves, they will go ahead and get the vaccine for the good of the community.
Knowing that collective-culture thinking is correlated with better performance on vaccine prevention may hold clues for changing the public health messages surrounding the vaccine, he said.
How to Frame the Message
So how to promote an all-for-one mindset regarding COVID-19?
Leonhardt said that will be especially difficult in the US, which “is the least collectivistic culture on Earth,” based on their analysis.
He said that — given this new data — a message that might be more persuasive than emphasizing the danger of the disease on an individual basis would be to emphasize that getting vaccinated will help the groups people care about, whether that is family, a school, a city, or a nation, for instance.
At Leonhardt’s university, he pointed out, the sports teams are nicknamed the “Wolf Pack” and the vaccine pitch is “Let’s Vax the Pack
There is more to the Gates story. He is NOT just a nerdy computer guy. He is a psychopathic eugenicist, and a narcissist. He is so evil that even his evil wife can’t stand him anymore.
If they are correctly stating what is in the VXX, then how the heck does flu like symptoms occur?
The answer should be obvious.
|Fever, Flu like symptoms., chills/sweating for 72 hrs, Body aches and severe joint pain, disorientation, severe anxiety and jittery, rapid heart rate, Resting heart rate was between 130-140 beats per minute. Severe fatigue and weakness. Stayed in bed for 48+ hrs after adverse symptoms began with little relief.|
|This was my second vaccine for Covid. I experience headache, shaking chill and flu- like symptoms. My left arm was also sore. I had similar sx with the firat dose of the two but the second dose was definitley more symptomatic. My chillswere so bad that I could bvarely open the Tylenol container to get the medicine out. I should also state that I also had the Covid disease and I know that this is a risk factor for having a reaction. I think people should be told that they could have a reaction so they do not plan anything important the following day, but they should still get the vaccine. The day following the reaction I felt perfect.|
|body aches, injection site soreness, joint stiffness, nausea, head ache, flu like symptoms|
|4″x5″ large red raised painful bump which was hot to the touch flu like symptoms-lethargy, sore throat, stomach upset The symptoms increased in intensity over three days, beginning to see decrease on fourth Treated with ice and Tylenol. Antihistamin on first day.|

Sometimes I see a comment so spot on, its deserves to be preserved and promoted… here is one of those
Finally, the underlying agenda is laid bare.
I’ve wondered watching the hysteria on the part of all the Authority figures – especially the Federal Government- to get EVERYBODY jabbed with their ‘genetic cocktail’ exactly ‘what’ the press to do so was motivated BY.
IF the preceding is to be believed, then COVID was simply used as a terror tactic to allow the PTB to manipulate the general populace into accepting the actual weapon with sheep-like docility… that being the vaccine itself. Naturally, any such weapon would need to have a sufficiently long period of relative quiescence before manifesting symptoms; if people started dropping dead a week after the jab the jig would be up in short order, wouldn’t it? No, this approach is utterly BRILLIANT in it’s conception (again, IF true!) since by now multiple Billions of People have received the vaccination World-Wide.
If, the assertion regarding the ongoing diminution of immune response is scientifically factual, then not only will the UK be virtually depopulated by the coming March but everyone Stateside who received the ‘vaccine’ will by – Oh say, late June – be on the cusp of final immunological collapse. According to various reckonings that would be between 30-45 per cent of the American population DEAD by not later than August at the outside…without a shot having been fired. You almost have to admire such ruthless efficiency…it’s simply breathtaking in it’s scope, truly.
FWIW, neither myself, nor ANYONE in my family has – or WILL – be receiving ‘the Jab’ regardless of the level of coercion involved. That said, there IS a limit to how much bullshit we’re going to put up with before responding in kind; remember Frank Herbert’s famous line from his epic, Dune, “He who can DESTROY a thing CONTROLS a thing.”…and Civilization as we know it is very, very frail indeed. Nuff said…

The “Q” entity was a clever “controlled opposition”. It was a Psy-op by the cabal. It tricked many people who may have rose up against the corruption, the cabal, by instead having them convinced that powerful forces were “on the case” and that “we have everything”. The lies have an element of the truth, and the Q psy-op used this technique.
This is a video referenced in the last “Q Drop” December 8, 2020. Q was pretty quiet after the election was stolen. When Q was no longer needed, they simply stopped posting.
Some still carrying on with the Q thing. It is far easier to fool a man than to convince him that he was fooled. This video was censored from YouTube but I was able to find it on Bitchute.
What do y’all think?
stock here: This plot has been fairly well hidden, at least to normal people just trying to lead their lives. But the psychopaths and sociopaths, and authoritarians and their sheep that want to be ruled heavily, have spent decades and here we are now.
“Corey’s Digs” Exposes The Mysterious Nefariousness of BlackRock, The CEO Larry Fink, And His “Legendary” Family Tree. Hint: They are All Finks, Even the Females.
Corey does some great digs. Much of Blackrock boyz histories are pushed to the bottom bin of the Google searches, but Corey found ways to still get the real data.
BlackRock is part and parcel of the Cabal. This lays it bare.
BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s Family Tree Was A Mystery Until Now
October 25, 2021 / 4 Comments
It’s very likely that only a small percentage of people even know who BlackRock is, despite the fact that they are the world’s largest asset management company with over $9 trillion in assets, is one of the top two shareholders of over 1,600 American firms, was involved in the clean up of the 2008 financial meltdown, pulled off the biggest scandal in history with the Federal Reserve last year, and is changing the way banks and financial institutions monitor your money while creating a new climate scoring system as another way to control your funds. Their finger isn’t just on the pulse, it’s on the lever.
BlackRock was founded by Laurence (Larry) Fink in 1988 under the corporate umbrella of The Blackstone group, later split from Blackstone in 1994, and went public in 1999. If Larry Fink isn’t on your radar, you better start paying attention. Familiarize yourself with what BlackRock is behind, what they’ve already done to negatively impact you and our economy, and what’s coming down the pike so you can stay ahead of it.

More on Original Antigenic Sin and the Folly of Our Universal Vaccination Campaign
A deeper look at a decisive limitation of our adaptive immune systems.
|eugyppius7 hr ago|
To review: We have now had ten months of mass vaccination against SARS-CoV-2. Nearly 7 billion doses have been administered worldwide. This unprecedented campaign has not eradicated Corona; it has not even suppressed infections. Instead, case statistics have ballooned almost everywhere. While the vaccinated appear to enjoy some protection against severe outcomes, skyrocketing transmission means most countries have seen little benefit, on balance, from their universal vaccination campaigns. The most pressing question has become, simply: What is going on?
I’ve explored a few different possibilities. First, there seems to be a Marek Effect at work. We might imagine that all viruses have an optimal level of population-wide virulence – an advantageous degree of aggression at which they can spread effectively, while not driving their hosts underground too soon. Certain Delta sub-strains, previously punished for their excessive aggression in unvaccinated populations, have likely been favoured by the vaccines, which reduce symptoms in the vaccinated without preventing infection for more than a few months. Our vaccines reduced the average virulence of SARS-2, and the virus adapted to reattain the prior, optimal balance.
But the virus and its interactions with human hosts constitute a complex system. In such systems, it is very unlikely that any effect can be put down to a single cause. The Public Health England data provide powerful reasons to suspect that the vaccines may be compromising immunity to SARS-2 via Original Antigenic Sin. This is not a crazy internet fantasy, but a well-observed limitation of human immunity. It is the primary reason that respiratory viruses like influenza return again and again. Despite multiple reinfections across the whole population, we are never quite immune to the flu, because its strategy is to exploit the way our immune systems learn.
The mechanisms of Original Antigenic Sin are not fully understood, but we have a rough idea of what might be happening. When a virus infects your body for the first time, your naive memory B cells imprint on specific virus proteins, or antigens, presented to them. These B cells then become either memory B cells or plasma cells. Forever after, they specialise in producing antibodies against those specific antigens. When a slightly mutated form of the virus arrives, these memory B-cells begin pouring forth the antibodies they learned to produce during the first infection. These antibodies bind to multiple epitopes on the virus particles, and in the process they give the slower-moving naive B-cells little chance to learn about any new, mutant virus features.
Original Antigenic Sin was most influentially described by Thomas Francis in 1960. He noted that, regardless of whatever influenza A strains were in circulation, subjects tended to have dominant antibody responses to the strains that were current in their early childhood:
The antibody of childhood is largely a response to … the virus causing the first Type A influenza infection of the lifetime. As the group grows older and subsequent infections take place, antibodies to additional families of virus are acquired. But … the antibody which is first established continues to characterize that cohort of the population throughout its life. The antibody forming mechanisms have been highly conditioned by the first stimulus, so that later infections with strains of the same type successively enhance the original antibody to maintain it at the highest level at all times in that age group. The imprint established by the original virus infection governs the antibody response thereafter. This we have called the doctrine of original antigenic sin.
An important consequence of this childhood conditioning, is that different age cohorts within the population have overlapping or layered immunity to different influenza strains. This is an important if subtle aspect of our population-wide immunity to influenza A. It looks like this:
As older cohorts die, their immunity to older strains dies with them. These old strains, long suppressed, are then positioned to return, for very few human immune systems remember them any longer. Francis believed this was the mechanism underlying periodic cycles of pandemic influenza. The 1957 influenza pandemic, for example, featured a strain of flu against which only the oldest cohorts – those in their 70s – had specific antibodies. As these “immunological veterans” disappeared, this older, long-suppressed type of influenza was free to return and cause another pandemic event.
In conclusion, Francis proposed that optimised influenza vaccines might be administered to children before their first infection. He envisioned vaccines designed to confer immunity against “known or anticipated recurrent strains” and hoped that “In this manner the original sin of infection could be replaced by an initial blessing of induced immunity.”
Strategic vaccination conferring immunity against likely future strains is of course exactly the opposite of our current efforts to give every last living human multiple vaccinations against an extinct strain of SARS-2.
The existence of Original Antigenic Sin has been confirmed by generations of research, and the literature is full of curious findings. A major reason flu shots don’t work, for example, is that they are powerless to redirect adult immune systems against novel influenza strains. Most people who get flu shots are adults, with immune systems long since primed by childhood infection. Hence this old Lancet case study of influenza outbreaks among boys at Christ’s Hospital in Sussex in the 1970s:
In each outbreak, the protective effect of inactivated influenza-A vaccine was limited to those boys, not already immune, who were vaccinated for the first time with the most up-to-date strain. Revaccination with the same strain did not increase the degree of protection, and revaccination with a later strain did not afford protection against subsequent challenge.
The flu vaccines, in other words, work great if you’ve never had the flu before. Otherwise they don’t do anything.
It is often difficult to further increase antibody levels, specificity and the quality of the immune response in individuals who have been repeatedly immunized through either vaccination or recurrent exposure to infectious agents or cross-reacting microbial antigens. This has been a particular concern for aging adults in the context of the antigenic drift of influenza virus, in view of their annual exposure to antigens of new but related influenza variants through either infection or vaccination. After exposure to a new but cross-reacting antigenic variant, such individuals may respond by producing antibodies that are primarily directed at antigens characterizing influenza viruses encountered during earlier epidemics.
The authors go on to write that the “impact” of Original Antigenic Sin “on protection is far from established,” noting earlier research showing substantial all-cause mortality reductions from flu shots. Later work, though, has shown that the mortality reduction of influenza vaccines is largely an illusion of selection effects. For a variety of reasons, those most likely to die of influenza are far less likely than healthier groups to be vaccinated.
Original Antigenic Sin has been famously implicated in dengue fever. This is considered to be an extreme case of the phenomenon, with “considerable bearing on vaccine strategies.” Here the conclusions are ominous and full of implications for our own situation:
Once a response has been established, it is unlikely that repeat boosting will be able to change its scope, meaning that balanced responses against the four virus serotypes will need to be established with the first vaccine dose.
The danger is that immunity to one strain alone may lead to permanently impaired immune response to the three other serotypes, causing worse and longer illness.
Influenza had been infecting humans for generations before anybody came up with the notion of influenza vaccines. Despite the efforts of public health authorities everywhere, most people catch the flu before they are ever vaccinated, and so flu shots have little opportunity to undermine population-wide immunity to influenza A.
The complex system constituted by SARS-CoV-2 and its interactions with the human immune system, on the other hand, remains barely understood. In chasing an empty fantasy of herd immunity, authorities are denying human populations everywhere the opportunity to develop the layered, population-wide resistance against successive SARS-2 strains that is the foundation of our immunity against other respiratory viruses. Aside from the minority that have managed to recover from natural infection before the vaccinators got to them, most humans will have their crucial, primary immune response conditioned by the spike protein of SARS-2 in its vintage 2020 configuration.
It is a near certainty that this immunity will attenuate antibody responses to the spike protein of current and future variants, forever. Mutant spike proteins will increasingly escape vaccine-conferred immunity, and breakthrough infections will elicit only partial response to the new epitopes. Insofar as the data also suggest that our vaccines will attenuate immunity to other virus proteins beyond spike, mass vaccination will lead to ever more volatile waves of infection – in exchange for limited and fading protection against severe outcomes.
The most dangerous thing to do, at this point, would be to vaccinate children. The virus is not a threat to them, and if they are infected by the new forms of SARS-2 that are sure to emerge every winter, we will begin to establish – through them and the as yet unvaccinated – the layered immunity that is the only way of coming to terms with SARS-2 in the longer term. As long as the vaccinators are permitted to continue their radical and increasingly insane campaign, though, nothing will improve. Indeed, their policies threaten to bring about a semi-permanent pandemic state for generations to come.

You thought that funding Gain of Function research to make more deadly viruses was bad (NIH has now confirmed that Fauci lied when he said they did not fund Gain of Function, NIH now admits they did fund GOF)
But this will make your blood boil. This is a real story, too, not something made up.
TMZ removed their link to this story, but my reverse image search remembers they had this picture up for a while. Until top brass insisted that this didn’t fit the narrative….
And here is the “study” itself!!!
I saved it on the wayback machine, as the Cabal overlords will surely not want real proof to remain in the public domain

Very few Hollywood types “get it” I mean the real perspective.
George Clooney calls it a “crazy” situation that some of his brethren are eschewing the COVID-19 vaccine. “It’s stupid. And it’s stupid because every generation in our country for more than a lifetime has been asked to sacrifice something for the safety of their fellow man — get shot, fight Nazis,” he says. “All that anyone’s being asked here is to get a shot in the arm and put on a mask. Grow up. Get something done.”
The Irony continues with Sean Penn, walking off the stage of GasLit, as he is gas lighting the shit out of us, making us think we are crazy for not taking an experimental, never before used on humans “VXX”.
Penn, whose CORE organization was instrumental in supplying widespread COVID-19 testing and vaccine distribution across Los Angeles County, also stuck his neck out while promoting his MGM film Flag Day and requested that unvaccinated moviegoers skip the cinemas. “Stay home until you are convinced of these very clearly safe vaccines,” Penn told THR, adding: “We’ve normalized this notion of radical libertarianism, and it really is a violation of the idea of interconnectedness.”
