Signs of intelligent life on the Stanford campus
Today, after only two hours of looking, I met a Stanford undergrad, Aleko Brice, who isn't buying the narrative about the vaccine. He's awesome.
I went to Stanford University today to see if I could find anyone who wasn't buying the narrative hook, line, and sinker.
It only took me 2 hours before I talked to Aleko Brice, a senior at Stanford.
He got one J&J shot because he felt he needed it to travel, and had pretty significant side effects for a week.
He filed for a religious exemption so he avoided getting the booster that Stanford unethically still requires. Stanford granted his exemption.
I asked for his opinion on Stanford's vaccine policy and he thinks even if the benefits outweigh the risk, it should still be a personal choice and not mandated. Right answer.
He also said there are a lot of kids at Stanford who are remaining silent who feel the same way that he does.
He connected me with others at Stanford who I immediately reached out to.
I predict that there will be a debate coming soon to the Stanford campus between the “misinformation spreaders” and the Stanford Faculty who support the narrative.
I wish more Stanford students exhibited the critical thinking skills that Aleko clearly has. Maybe after the vaccine narrative blows up, people will learn from their mistakes to trust authority.
Everyone else I talked to basically thinks that if Stanford has a policy, it must be to protect students. They said the only thing that would change their minds about the vaccine is if Stanford or the CDC were to recommend against it; papers in the peer-review literature can be wrong and are given far less weight.
Everyone I asked did acknowledge that it is very strange that Stanford Professor Grace Lee didn’t want to see the Israeli safety data. They thought that was potentially very troubling, but nobody had heard of the Israeli data.
Nobody knew about the Harvard, Hopkins, UCSF paper which is no surprise. When I brought it up, everyone except Aleko, dismissed it as not credible since if it was correct, Stanford would have changed their policy. So even though it had top authors from top institutions, something must be wrong with the paper.
