    Your video is incisive and full of valuable information, but really cuts itself off at the knee with a level of crude "humour" that really offends many of those I tried to share it with. Please tone down a bit this tired popular-culture race to the bottom. We all know what and anus and penis looks like;. W#hat does this really add?

    Yohannesburg? Really? So much of this segment was about South Africa. But zero research into what or who this country is. Most of us don't pronounce the name of our major city as "Yohannesburg". It would take a minute of research to find out why.

    Altruism can even be 100% fundamented on selfishness. We are a social animal and depend on others for our survival and quality of life. This stems into a secular morality system based on well being. Even a capitalistic society thrives on well being, in the long term. I'm convinced it's faith-based thinking and greedy short-sightedness that get us in these holes.

    think ill wait for the global vaccine, New variants in contrast to the timescale of the current vaccination programmes , im not sure if getting a vaccine now will just be a waste of time. can you vaccinate over year or years against a virus which is actively mutating over months?

    I'll tell you the greatest fear of the owner class, and by extension; Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham; poor people paying off debts. If they gave us all a stimulus and then the economy did great -- people would wonder "wait, you mean they can just GIVE US MONEY and it pays for itself?" Yes. They've been doing it for the wealthy for some time now -- and the banks also distribute and create "new money" ostensibly to match growth in GDP. You could just GIVE THAT to the public and it's going to cause an even bigger growth in GDP than giving it to banks. Of course, this will melt the brains of the people educated in economics by the robber barons.

    So let me get this straight; the Bill & Melinda post piracy period donation fund pressured a group that was going to make a open source COVID drug available to not make it open source? This is the problem of depending on the kindness of strangers. Do we really know we can depend on these people?

    some clarification on the medical mumbo jumbo folks. at least according to my limited knowledge, most of the time when people are placed on a vent they are probably in the icu and also are given sedatives since shocker, BEING ON A VENT IS A TERRIBLE TIME. so the fact that Alabama is turning down the mentally impaired is just crap. big house poopoo my finger smells bad crap. anyone on a vent would be on sedatives so unless there is something wrong with there body in addition to the cognitive impairment, there is no real reason that they can't be on a vent if needed. just my two cents please fact check me before using anything I say as a talking point lol.

    Solution: get a political science degree... go into politics. Be the change you want to see. Instead of dressing up like a crazy Viking neo-nazi fascist or buying a ton of guns, the people who want change should just become politicians. Go into government, stop being a pussy and try to change things from the inside. Or just accept that lizard overlords must be defeated through some type of civil war and have fun watching your children kill each other over ideologies that have nothing to do with preserving our earth or happiness here on our planet. Peace.

    Fun fact I used to work for a company called EMF electric and they got 50,000 dollars for covid relief and guess what I got jack shit and I had to get 2 covid tests and stay out of work for a total of 4 weeks and I wasn't even paid for my time off but the owner did buy a new office. Also EMF electric is in NC and they do pool installations dont give them money they are assholes as well as being very homophobic

    I've been waiting a lifetime for others to wake up and say, "The Rich are absolutely fucking us in the ass, and will continue to do so until we have the sense to tax them" (or, if they prefer, kill them. Some will.) I wonder how long I'll have to wait for Step 2. 🙄

    You should first check what Gates has to say. First of all, Oxford could not execute Phase 3 trials with their vaccine. They needed help. And the only ones who offered were AstraZeneca. Second, Bill Gates said that open source is a good strategy with computer software. With vaccines? Not so much. Right now there are at least 10% vaccine skeptics. If you give up openly the vaccine there is only a matter of time until someone, using old equipment, will screw the vaccine up. And people will die. And then we will have 100% vaccine skeptics. Vaccines have an impossible high quality bar: zero death. It only one person dies because a vaccine, even if it is in person in one hundred million doses, the anti-vaccine werewolves will tear the society apart. I live in Romania. Every year some 100 people die of measles. Friggin measles. The measles vaccine is 100% safe. But it needs a inoculation rate higher than 92%. And Romania is well below that because the anti-vaccine conspiracy numnuts. Bill Gates is a good guy. One of the few billionaires who sees beyond his own needs. Remember that and stop soiling his name. I wish the planet had more Gates and less Kochs.

    If you have the time and if you have a twitter account please use @/dontkillitbernie with this message "Bernie Sanders, as Chair of the Budget Committee, decides what goes in the COVID relief bill. It's his decision on whether a $15-per-hour minimum wage is included in the bill or not. If he keeps it in, it forces the Democrats to vote on it and means it has a chance of passing. If he takes it out, it means Bernie Sanders is killing the increase in minimum wage himself. We, the undersigned, have a clear message: Don't kill it Bernie!" and sign this petition: @t If Joe Manchin and Kristen Sinema are threatening to kill the stimulus bill over a 15$ min wage, we must call their bluff. In order for us to do that, the 15$ min wage MUST stay within the bill! Please urge Bernie as the Chair of the Budget Committee to not take the 15$ minimum wage, as this action will be used to throw him under the bus the moment corporate dems get the opportunity to do so.

    According to some TED Talk I saw years ago, people living in poverty tend not to think very far ahead. Not just because of sleep deprivation and malnutrition, but as a survival tactic, your brain doesn't expend resources when the future is extremely uncertain. You'd think the opposite would be true. You'd think people living in extreme luxury, with access to consultants would be able to plan very far ahead. And yet even if we accept that all rich people are emotionless sociopaths, just from a pragmatic perspective, the CEOs of these companies consistently make these nonsensical, short-sighted decisions. "If the people all die, you'll be king of nothing" the old gotcha statement goes. So what are we missing here? The only conclusion I can reach is that because wealth didn't bring them happiness, they have a death wish. And like... that's fine, but why do you have to take the rest of us out with you?

    To be totally capitalist, not open sourcing the vaccine will cost million of jobs. Rich people are supposed to be "job Creators," but rich people end up just killing job after job. Why is there not a surplus of job with how much money the USA has thrown at all the rich people. (6 Trillion in March of 2020)

    It's easy to see the metaphor in Icke's "Reptilians" when seen through this lens. Lack of empathy, sociopathy, comes from the Reptilian part of the Human brain. It's associated with no empathy/ritual. Ritual. Keep that in mind. See Kubrick filmography from start to finish, hmm, throw Prometheus by Ridley Scott in there.


      Well the issue with Icke is that he actually thinks that they are real lizard people, but we can pretend it’s metaphorical

    Another 3 points on the 1 million AstraZeneca vaccines that came to South Africa: 1) They would have expired before we could have used most of it. 2) Preliminary tests show minimal efficacy against the new SA variant, i.e. they are basically useless. 3) We had to scrap them altogether and turn to J&J instead.

    So Oxford wanted to make their vaccine freely available. But wait, had it gone through testing and got government approval? No. would Oxford University have been able to manage a test- and apprpval process in multiple countries? No. So making an untested and not approved vaccine public domain is a pretty useless undertaking. But who wants to know that, Gates-bashing feels so much better.

    Gates' defense for flip flopping on the open source was that the mRNA vaccine was 'too difficult to make' or some shit like that, and then he said some stuff about how potential lack of quality control could sabotage the success ? I dont know, maybe thats legit? But even if it is who cares? Like, why not let people try? Oh, money.

    One the mentally different, the DNRs are certainly wrong, but the part about how they might be bad candidates for ventilators might be about the fact that they may not understand what is happening and may resist or try to remove it themselves. Notice it doesn't say they are bad candidtes, but "may". It's a guideline to evaluate the person't capacity to accept the treatment.

  • Konrad Komorowski

    Ok, a lot of good points, but open sourced vaccine can be made by everyone, right? So correct me if I'm wrong but isn't vaccine something that shouldn't be made by anyone, but only by labs with appropriate equipment and "know how" (maybe with some authorisation by health organizations)? Well maybe it's something that I was brainwashed to think, but is it impossible that counties in need won't excessively exam vaccines from other companies (without certain standards) and that could potentially harm more people and further build distrust in vaccines in general? Think about cheaper alternatives for low quality clothing and now think about getting that quality injected into your body. Of course I don't try to defend billionaires and capitalism. But knowing Bill Gates accomplishments and way of thinking I don't he's greedy to that extend.

    IMO, Vaccines should be open source and free to protect everyone or as many people as possible, paying for a vaccine is biological blackmail. Keep up the work Cody! UK here, socialised medicine 🇬🇧🚑💉 Billionaires are doing great in America (financially)🇺🇸 ... not to save the poor with their charity. Also raise the minimum wage to a living wage! Billions are incomprehensible to us. Vaccines should be open source and free!!! ✨ I used to say eat the rich but let’s just call them out accurately and try and get change and also make them pay tax???
