Pink Elephants and Little Green Men

In the past year, I have had many conversations about viruses, vaccinations and immunity. I have been surprised by the number of my friends who have serious reservations about vaccinations – one reason for this blog! It seems to me that most fit into the following categories:

  1. Informed and ‘yes’ to vaccination
  2. Trust in science and ‘yes’ to vaccines
  3. Want to be more informed and so hesitant about vaccines
  4. Sceptical but willing to listen
  5. Sceptical and distrustful but willing to at least engage and agree to disagree
  6. Distrustful, researched but been misinformed, decided, absolute ‘no’ to vaccines and quite possibly ‘no’ to the existence of a pandemic or even coronaviruses

Those in this last category have a wide range of views including that:

You probably don’t want to go there!

If you identify with one or more of these views and have decided that nothing will change it, then my next few posts will probably make you feel much the same way as I felt while researching for my piece on conspiracy theories and digesting ‘The Hidden History of the Incredibly Evil Khazarian Mafia’. (I won’t post a link here and really, you probably don’t want to go there!) So I suggest that you might want to read something more to your taste

But before you leave me, allow me to share this story:

Mulla Nasruddin and one of his friends had been drinking all evening in a bar. The friend finally passed out and fell to the floor. The Mulla called a doctor who rushed him to a hospital. When he came to, the doctor asked him, “Do you see any pink elephants or little green men?”

Mulla Nasruddin

“No,” groaned the patient.
“No snakes or alligators?” the doctor asked.
“No,” the drunk said.
“Then just sleep it off. You will be all right in the morning,” said the doctor.
But Mulla Nasruddin was worried. “Look, doctor,” he said, “that boy is in bad shape. He said he could not see any of those animals, and you and I know the room is full of them.”’

  • I love the images, metaphors, cartoons you use to support, lighten up the so well researched and eloquently expressed material. My right side brain is very grateful. A feast to read.

    • Thank you Ganga. My right brain feels very fulfilled too with creating the blog.
      I have no idea, though, what will happen to the ‘BirdSong’ when the bird is let out of its cage!
