I would just keep in mind that rebellion is a natural act of every soul seeking freedom. Part of that freedom is self-determination.
The System is soylent green. It's people. But it represents the power of the most powerful people to influence the rest. This is what makes it confusion because some of "us" have a whole lot to say about "us", how we live, and what we do with that life.
When it comes to vaccines I will say that the mandates didn't bother me because they only really applied to government employees, international travelers, and healthcare workers. And I agree with the logic and reason behind it. It's not like anyone was forced, but if they wanted to come into work and be around other people, some more vulnerable than others, then taking a vaccine was a precaution they were expected to take because, unlike the influenza virus that we're so used to, covid-19 had a high rate of communication so even 50 people would be fine it was like playing hot potato with a loaded gun. Everyone wasn't fine.
Fortunately, when my mother contracted it a few weeks ago she was already vaccinated so her symptoms were mild. Otherwise, her age would have made her vulnerable. So when I hear people talk about not wanting to get vaccinated at all, I think about our elders and all the people we come into contact with. Because you may not know you have covid until you're already spreading it. And you can spread it to someone who could be fine or who might not be fine and you wouldn't necessarily think anything of it because you wouldn't know that they got it from you.
So be safe.
Understanding that the system is people also means that the rebellion is also people. Confusion can from all sides. Just because someone else is against who you are against doesn't mean everything you hear from them can be trusted. They're also just people. And even though they're not motivated to act against your best interest, they may give you bad information simply because they don't trust information from the people they think represent The System.
But you have to keep in mind that most of these doctors and scientists work for privately owned companies and corporations just like the rest of us and they aren't motivated to risk their names in history in order to lie about something that another scientist or doctor in another country would easily contradict.
So, in short, use your own intelligence and don't fall for conspiracy theories just because they sound good or just because you don't trust the government. Governments are not trustworthy entities by nature. However, that doesn't mean that a global conspiracy has to exist on their behalf.
Also... be careful and aware of the choices you do make.
Because those choices could take the choice away from other people around you if they don't know that you might be infected.
