As part of this attack on our freedom and autonomy, vitaphobia makes us think that we are incapable of living without dependence on its “authorities”.
Multiplication Is Division
The more we attach labels to people to define them in terms of ethnicity, sexual preference or lifestyle choices, the more we risk losing sight of the essential insight that we are all human beings.

“Humanity stands together” – a photo essay of a protest
Out on the streets on Saturday 18.12, there were anti-vaxxers marching alongside the double and in some cases, the triple jabbed. There were army veterans marching alongside ravers from the 80s and 90s. There were white working class people marching alongside black and Asian working class people.
Breaking and re-making us
One part of the strategy and tactics being deployed against us is persuading a significant chunk of the populace to do the dirty work of divide and rule for you. Having an atomised, frightened populace makes the project of breaking and re-making us that much easier. Atomisation is a key part of the process.
2021 – spiralling down | 2022 – ‘interesting’
Do you remember March of 2020 when it was ‘just three weeks to flatten the curve’? We do although given how far back that is now, the memory is not exactly an immediate one. It’s not even two years ago but it feels like a lot longer than that as we unwillingly become acclimatised to a new (ab)normal.
We can’t help but notice the demonisation of anyone opposing vaccine passports, digital or paper, as so called ‘anti-vaxxers’. It would be too easy to dismiss this demonisation as lazy, uniformed thinking. That would be wrong because this is part of a strategy of divide and rule.
Situation report – November 2021
Taking a step back, it’s clear the rollout of vaccine passports is going to be a classic case of mission creep. It starts off with concerts and nightclubs, it will be moving onto pubs and restaurants and before you know it, supermarkets. It moves from what people are willing to sacrifice for the sake of principle to what they need to survive.
Putting the skids under the vaccine passports
Plenty of people have said that they’ve no intention of going to a concert, sports event, restaurant or pub if they have to show a vaccine passport, paper or digital. That includes a fair few double jabbed people as well as the un-jabbed. That will be a lot of people engaging in the tactic of boycotting.
Can the roll out of vaccine passports in the UK be halted?
This can be won but we have to focus on the bigger picture and not get sidetracked. Getting tied up in debates on specific issues such as masking, who should and shouldn’t be getting jabbed and the like will result in losing sight of the bigger picture.
It is exactly the hardest of times that demand we act upon our principles. Standing strong in your ethics is not hard when they are not being challenged!

In an ideal world, freedom wouldn’t be for the government of the day to gift or deny us. Freedom should be our inalienable right as autonomous human beings. We live in a far from ideal world – not that any of us need reminding of that grim reality.
