Think that holds true all through life, not just CV19.
Pro-mandates have the:
Need to tell you that you're doing it wrong (if not doing it their way)
Follow the government rules without questioning
Band together for some good old fashioned cancel-culture if you disagree with the party line
Bolster each other up and form a gang
Get extremely ugly if you question them (because their knowledge isn't learned it's echoed)
Question authority and what mandates might mean to their health, freedom, family, privacy
Tend to not band together, since they're individualists
Don't get hard-ons from bringing others down
Rarely feel the need to preach, instead posing debates that might make people question their own beliefs
The fact that the govt is actually jabbing children, and jabbing people who have already had the virus and have a robust response to it - simply mad.
Welp, yes Thai people are getting really worried and think they have no choice but to jab with the CCP/CP inferior junk and then going to the other no choice as an AZ 2nd jab which is sort of better if you think on those terms. But so far it still remains their BS agenda push to majority jab with their original plan of only these 2 vaccines for their reasons I will not or plainly cannot state my opinion on, same as cannot for the opinions of the ones who oppose the forced push as well.
My family tried to sign up for the Moderna in CM but 2 did not pass go, and the one who got the ok will wait and wait until she can get it, but it seems not to be anytime soon.
Now their continual PR parade of numbers is just that, a parade that starts and does not end up anywhere having any true bells and whistles. Sort of like a fart in the wind. But yes, there are more signing up for the Svc and AZ, but again who knows how many really, and then again why not Sphm or J&J etc? It is beyond being disillusioned. For me if I was not fortunate enough to get my first Pfizer jab because of a tip from a local CM TT OP, then I would not be getting anything anytime soon.
Sorry as it just sounds like complaining, but me and my family are pretty much thoroughly fed up disgusted with them and mad as he!! at this point. Can you blame us or anyone who is? So in the interim they will wait as well as the majority of their circle of friends and so on reaching out for the others (same ideology) to get the jabs until they get what they want (or someone next to them dies scaring them silly to jab the unwanted vaccines), but until then, there probably will not be factual numbers put out there or the target of mass vaccinations met until real other choices are brought in.
For my family as we have just discussed, if worst comes to shove then I will put them on an airplane to the US to get a J&J jab.
Why not allow the Covid extensions to continue? Thailand wants money coming. Those people getting the 60 day extensions do that. These are still exceptional times for people returning to their own countries and for Thailand's economy. Large scale tourism isn't coming back to Thailand any time soon. Maybe take what you can get from people have been here for a year or so already and caused no problems.
