This is my conclusion-in-process, written as a response to a post:
Your level-headed writing is appreciated. I was nearly obsessed with finding the truth behind current events, until recently. After re-posting a newsletter which its author claimed to be well-researched, I later realized it wasn't, and have concluded there is wisdom in forming no conclusions.
For example, it "may be" that masks decrease Covid cases, while increasing public conformity, so a global vaccine will be more accepted.
Each perspective, including this one, is a fragment of the whole. If I want a 360 degree view, I must let go of defenses and my position, and consider all viewpoints, without judgment or pre-conception.
Differing perspectives on masks, and other controversial subjects, can easily grow into arguments without winners.
To be clear, I wear a mask in public while questioning their overall benefit and the motives behind government directives. If nothing else, my mask-wearing calms those who see it as a public duty. I understand, from a speech by the California governor some months ago, that the claimed purpose of the mask is more about blocking one's own coughs and sneezes, than about inhaling micro-organisms. It is about protecting others more than protecting oneself.
I would not suggest to anyone, or even imply, that masks are a bad idea, as that would be socially irresponsible. I'd like to believe that each person can make their own choices, but not all can think for themselves.
Yet, if all perspectives are partial and incomplete, who is to say the responsibility is all upon the writer to present every angle? When a person expresses their view, so long as it is not done to deliberately deceive, shouldn't it be upon the reader to discern, do their own research, and contribute to a more rounded perspective for all -- without attacking the writer? That to me would be a civil and intelligent way to interact between us.
We have not yet seen the drama of 2020 to its final scene, and surprises may still lurk behind the curtains. News that a global vaccine is ready to be distributed alerts me, but this time I keep my feelings to myself.
Those who stand with the system may accept the vaccine. Those who think there is more to what is happening than can be easily seen, may refuse. Each person to their perspective, and in the end it doesn't matter.
If there are conspirators, they must love all the hoaxers and de-bunkers, and un-researched statements presented as facts, as it provides such a nice diversion of confusion. And they don't have to do anything, the people do it for them.
While some see conspiracy in everything suspicious, others see conspiracy theory in everything non-conformist. Yes, I am a non-conformist to the nonsense of the world. Yet, honestly and sincerely, my embodiment of oneness consciousness, the only lasting saving grace for humanity, is more essential than all of this.
When I read articles on the vaccine presented by supporters, I can see that perspective and its sense of validity. Maybe it is straightforward and a beneficial course of action. When I read articles about the eugenics history of the Gates family, and the conclusions of those who think they see his agenda, I can see that perspective and its sense of validity. Maybe there is something to it, maybe not. Earlier, I felt strongly a need to know the truth, to get to the bottom of mysteries like this. Now, when I can relax, I really don't need to know.
I have not formed a conclusion about the vaccines, or the election, and trust that I will know what I need to know, in the moment.
