I get alot of questions on where i stand about the vaccine campaigns that are being started on a global scale these days . Whether i will do it or not and where i stand about them and how to react to the 2 sides vaxxers or anti-vaxxers from a heathen point of view . There are hundreds of discussions on the subject at hand these days around the world . I have seen and taken active part in some and could find good and not so good arguments from others . And some rather fucked up opinions also .
Both sides have valid arguments and both sides have there share of nutjobs commenting about it .
So where do i stand as a person and from “the heathen” point of view ?
I actually still dont know sure , there is not mutch to say about it in a simple heathen opinion or view .There are some things you can translate to a heathen world view but there is above all , the human view !
But what i do know is that if i follow my guts at the moment , i will be at the waiting side of the matter for now for reasons i will state below .
I can and will not speak for the large majority of the heathens , how can i do that if there are perhaps millions of us globaly , all with different views and opinions on matters , so i can just talk about my encounters with the ones ive know and the most heathens i know are all capable of thinking for themselves since it is something that we proud ourselves upon . We are not mainstream or the kind that follows lightly/easely . We are not the sheep kind of people . Even the writings in the edda’s encourage us to question everyone , everything and anything , not to follow but seek wisdom on all things . Do not take anything for reality or truth because another says it is , i for one do not even trust the eddas for a 100% since its written by a Christian decades after everything , even if his ancestors where 100% heathen i still believe he could not be 100% true and honest being a Christian . So thats how far i trust everything . Yeah i know i have issues lol
So with this said , this is where i stand . And this is my personal opinion and view and how i get to the conclusion of waiting for now .
Things feel to forced wright now , the pressure that the covid virus has unleashed on the human kind and society is enormous , whether its on the economic ,health , social or personal side . We all have bin impacted by it on one side of the other . And all of us hope that this mess is gone get sorted out sooner or later . But what looked liked it could control our lives for years has suddenly has a dozen miracle cures ( or what seem to be ) .
I do believe that there are thousands of well educated and skilled people in the world working hard to find the solution, but i also know that for every well meaning person there is one that only thinks about making money and profit . What tickles me is that when a solution looked to be far away for the problem , the moment one research lab found a possible “cure” , all the rest found one also within a few weeks without working togheter. Damn , if everyting would go so fast , how can it still be that there are people dying from hunger ,cancers and any other fucked up disease globaly . So this is why i feel like everything is rushed and a half baked solution for now.
The fact is , there is money and “prestige” to be gained .
Every lab / researcher wants to be the first one to have find the solution ,
Every country wants to be the one to claim they have it first,
Every secretary or minister of health wants to be the one that got his people the cure ,
So thats why i find it suspicious that when it normaly takes aprox a century to get medications tested and approved , now it is done in a few months because there is a global need for it . The world needs it ,even craves it . What i also find strange is that there are no seasonal illnesses this year , did they just vanish ? Also nobody dies of old age anymore or strokes or whatever , everybody dies from covid 19 . Some say the covid crisis is made up to control the mass , i dont believe that , i have seen what it does first hand and its a true bitch but wile i dont think its made up it sure is a handy reason to force things to be done upon people because of the pressure .
Some events in history also had occasions that people approved some shady or drastic measures because the world or events at that time demanded it . And alot of people at that moment where pro or contra . Time proved what whas wright and what whas not .
For every valid argument pro or contra there is a counter argument .
A few of the arguments and / or questions i personaly recieved when i say i want to wait to get vaccinated ;
Dont you love your fellow humans or elders as a heathen ?
Yes, i do but there is also the rule used in any emergency on a global scale , whether is paramedic , firefighters or military . Own safety first , if you dont look for your own safety first you can be laying next to the victim and makes you useless in that case and . So if there is in time a proven fault with the vaccinations , what is a possibility since nothing got really tested like it should . Who will be left to help or manage the daily stuff or protect the remaining population if the given solutions turn out to be false or wrong ?
Dont you wanne protect the weaker in the society as a heathen?
Yes offcourse , if you know any heathens at all ,you would know we are very dedicated on protecting our kin and loved ones , most ( if not all ) would die to protect them without any hesitation or second tought . But again , without proof that all the offerd cure’s work at the moment, blindly believing feels like to mutch of a gamble and sort of makes room to be weakend as a society .
Are you willing to sacrifice people by not getting vaccinated when you claim to be about protecing your kin or loved ones ?
Not by choice i would , but for us , dead is a big part of life , there are only 2 things certain in life . You get born and you will die . All in between is up to the gods and known by the norns. How you handle it is up to you .The moment you realise that it always have bin like that and it always will be , the easyer life gets . So by not vaccinating at the time you are not “sacrificing” anyone , you just experiencing life and place some sort of trust in the gods and norns. So trying to give people a feeling of guilt may not be the correct way to encourage them at all .
Do you want to die from the virus ?
Sarcasm on / Ooow yes , offcourse i do ,we all dream of a glorious death and does that not sound so glorious !!!! sarcasm off/ .
You must be joking when asking this question . Why do people sometimes think we long for death as a heathen? I think we have the tv shows to blame/thank for that .The moment people know you are a heathen they start seeing you a the barbaric hordes from tv . The only thing we have with death is the acceptance that that day will come , when we do not know ,but we do not fear it nor long for it either. The only thing we can do untill that day is to leave a good impression on the people who crossed our paths wile living. So we can be rememberd in a good way ,no books wil be written about most of us but if the people that crossed your path remember you as a good , strong , honorable , thrue or honest man for a few generations then i would say your life goal has bin fulfilled . So i am not planning on dying from that virus no . The simple thing is , i never ever bin sick since i whas a child , nobody in my famely has some recollection of sutch an event in the past , my wife has had covid 19 . We decided to have our kids seperated from her for safety but i never considerd about “sentencing” my wife to solitude when it whas already so hard on her by not beeing able to hug and kiss her kids . So we had dinners and slept togheter like there whas nothing going on ( sort off ). By desinfecting the things she used we tryd to counter the risc for the kids , Ive rather be sick then to put her true that , that whas my choice . I asked Eir for support and took care of my famely like any man would do . I did not get sick and whas tested negative , so what whas it ? Eir protecting me ? Could be . But most plausible answer would be i just dont get sick easely seeing prior history . So why would i need a vaccine against something my body seems to resist in a natural way ( for now ) .If you are in the same situation and dont get sick often , you still have time to decide and see where the vaccines are going .
These are the most recurring questions i get about the heathen point of view.
Some of the counter arguments are valid , some trully far fetched or downright fucked up .
To sum a few up also .
I am scared or unsure about the vaccines.
I can understand that a 100% , people who think for themselves will have read about the pro’s and the cons upon the matter at this time . If you feel unsure , wait for the time beeing , there is no rush , dispite of what others may try to say . Listen to your inner self , you made it this far by doing so , so why rush now .Courage can come in many ways .
The covid virus is a hoax and does not exist .
You must be living under a rock or have to be ignorant on the current world my friend , i fully agree that not everything is covid related like it seems or they want you to see but the virus is real and nasty . But i also think things are exaggerated because of the opportunities it brings . But it does exist and needs to be dealt with .
The vaccines are made to control and track the masses .
I am sorry but you truly need a tin foil hat and need to move to somewhere underground for your own mental health and that of others . In these modern days nothing is truly hidden or safe , you cant even piss against something at night without beeing seen or filmed , how would something like this get hidden from the world when thousands of people are working on it , nothing is safe anymore , you can argue that the concentration camps in ww2 where a big secret known by thousands untill the allies stumbled upon it . But those where other times , with the internet all is available to everyone , a secret is not so secret for a long time these days , its always bound to come out or be leaked if so many people are involved . Its not like they have all the people working or knowing on the vaccines locked up in a huge underground facility on every continent .
The Hávamál has a line on what happens if to many know of a secret ;
Each man who is wise and would wise be called must ask and answer aright. Let one know thy secret, but never a second, if three a thousand shall know. Hávamál 63
So how could thousands of people keep this a secret these days ?
The vaccines contain nano tech !
To what use ? Nobody cares about what you do , own or think , wel perhaps they do but they already know how to do that . So what would be the point of giving every in the world an injection with nano tech in it ? What more can they gain on info with nano tech ? Again with the internet and modern tech , goverments have acces to anything you do or own so there is no more need to fund a global nano troyan horse injection . If your argument is that it is to track you all over the world ,then i would suggest in giving your mobile phone a good look because every app you have installed does that already . Give this one a good tought and then make up your mind my friend . The only thing that no one has acces to ; is your mind and toughts , you are still free to think what you want , whether you can say them is another mather . But the only mind control there is , is following another ones opinion without actually thinking for yourself , some of you call the people who blatantly follow what the goverment tells on the virus and what to do sheeps , wile you also act like parrots for the other side , make up your own mind and follow your guts . No one wil force a chip in your blood or body . If you wanne be taken serious and listened to , stop using this as an argument against the vaccine.
So after this long text you can see that this “to vaxx or not to vaxx ” question actually has nothing to do with being a heathen or not but everything with being human and what your guts and/or mind says . If you find any legit reason why you would or why you dont need the vaccine then you have to listen to your gut and mind , ask councel to the gods if you like , they do listen ,to help you decide . But dont go pointing fingers on others why or why not they decide to get the vaccine . Afterall , we all have free will . Dont follow just to belong in a camp or to support the ones that shout the hardest . Decide for yourself my friends and stick with your decision . And remember , heathens are not sheep or one race , we are the few , we are the many in some sort of way .
And if you are one of the people who would force the vaccine upon people or punish other for not taking the vaccine in any way , make sure that you never get in the same situation that something would be forced upon you .Remember also that when you should decide to force or punish in some sort of way the people who did not get vaccinated , remember that when things goes tits up and the vaccines turn out to be bad ,there will be a score to settle .
And that , i can say for most heathens , most heathens will repay blood with blood when something happens to our loved ones, with interest . My wife will also be with the first who will get the vaccine in our country, not knowing yet if its mandatory or not . If she decides for her own and go ahead with vaccination and things turn out bad , perhaps i will take peace in the fact that she decided for her own in free will. If it would be a forced or semi forced decision then i will search for the responsible ones and repay the debt with interest . So dont reflect your fear and force others to take it if you are not willing to be around to face to bill afterwords.
So to conclude , the answer on the topic :
There is no final universal answer to the question as ” a heathen” , whether you get it or not is up to you .But you can aproach it as a heathen . Inform yourself on good sources , take everything into account , and make your decision according to that .
I hope you found some use in this article and wish you and your kin a healthy and safe 2021 .
