No amount of evidence will change the mind of a public in deep denial
Thank you so much for writing. Much-needed respite from the minimising, and beautiful courage for the moral course x
Thank you. This is heartfelt. I spent my 20s watching people my age die from a plague that the government chose to ignore. Activists saved countless lives. May that moment come again. Soon.
Fantastic piece, thank you for giving a voice to our oft-unappreciated efforts. We are on the right side of history and yes we are the ones who will be remembered, and not in infamy.
People's CDC and others have petitions and letter campaigns - I even have letter campaigns. Influencers and big shots refuse to boost these efforts. Even the ones who say we're right. It's perplexing.
That's just it. It's not about truth, or facts, or evidence. At this point it is about human psychology, pure and simple, and the majority of people are in denial. I have no idea how to break the spell, but we need to do so, and quickly.
