Paul Kingsnorth: ‘Why I Changed Sides in the Vaccine Wars’

Can western society and civilisation survive the current drive towards authoritarianism under the banner of Covid-19 and vaccines? Events over the last year indicate that state and corporate (and politically correct) totalitarianism are trending in the wrong direction. 

In this video interview, academic Paul Kingsnorth believes the current vaccine wars are symptomatic of a much bigger division between two fundamentally different world views: he calls them “thesis” and “antithesis.” When it comes to Covid, “thesis” is the establishment viewpoint: that lockdowns are needed to contain the virus, masks work, vaccines are safe, and people who question them are wrongheaded or worse. When Covid-19 first struck, Kingsnorth took the “thesis” viewpoint. But over the last few months, his perspective changed. The “antithesis” view can be summed up as: lockdowns are not needed, masks do not work, the safety and efficacy of the vaccines are being oversold, vaccine passports will not only fail but further segregate society, and in the near future we can expect Giradian scapegoating of the unvaccinated. In other words, we are positioned on the precipice of a slippery slope that leads towards increasingly draconian biopolitical control measures, the grip of which is unlikely to release even once the pandemic is over.
