What a thread. If you are marginalised and working on yourself in therapy, have ptsd, this is worth a read.

The tools people living in fear of gov suppression want, what they reach for, is knowledge and empowerment. If education was actually equitable & accessible, that would help. If people had effective autonomy, a sense of self determination, that would help.

I would like to see a new era of understanding for the people who fall victim to conspiracy theories: fear of a powerful, untouchable institution is not unreasonable. Especially for folks disproportionately marginalised or exploited by governments.

Both can be true at once. We can both denounce anti vax lies & also acknowledge that the US has economic reasons to push a COVID vaccine through before it has properly seen clinical trials. We can even do it with a newfound sense of compassion for those sucked into antivax lies

Anti vaxxers spread harmful misinformation & are a danger to public health. They have predatory practices. The US is inequitable, poorly regulated, & often predatory. The US gov, an oligarchy which prioritises private economic over residents, is also a hazard to public health.

Of all the US folks saying “I don’t know about these COVID vaccines, we don’t know if they are safe yet” how many are the same folks who mock anti-vaxxers with ableist slurs? Fear of corrupt institutions isn’t so unreasonable. How do we address the issue of reasonable fear?

Lots of people saw it coming. We must address systemic poverty, inequitable education access, and look at the reasons for mistrust of government. Regulation of intl misinfo wouldn’t hurt either.

I just read this amazingly detailed thread for USians, detailing when one should consider making a run for a border to request asylum. They ended it with “this is based on my family’s expirence fleeing Cuba” and boy did my heart drop.

I saw a black morph of a piwakawaka recently and I’ll not lie, if it had shat on me, I would have written a sonnet about it.
