This conformance experiment [The Asch Experiment] literally was a clever way to make people hold and express obviously false opinions.
— Igor Chudov
This is an excellent article by Igor Chudov. Many of the comments are also worth reading as Igor asks why people decided not to take the vaccine. Lots and lots of comments on this article. He talks about the Asch Experiment which is worth the read. Here’s his introduction to that discussion:
“All experts agree that the vaccine is safe and effective. ”
That was enough to get most people vaccinated. Except that anyone could ask two questions:
- How can I know that all experts agree, if those disagreeing are not allowed to speak up?
- How can anyone know that “Covid vaccine” is safe and effective, if no time actually passed to ensure that?
Finally, someone with just a bit of knowledge could also ask a question, “are you sure that it is safe and effective, if no coronavirus vaccine ever worked, and no mRNA product was ever approved”?
Just take it.
