So no facts then, just this is how the world works and you're naive to think otherwise?

I think the rich will try, and some will be successful. But the numbers and demographics already vaccinated don't support the 1% got there first boogeyman story.
Who are the global 1%, and are you among them?

I think so. This is a bit old, but it makes the point clearly enough...
https://www.diygenius.com/the-global-in ... y-problem/
Are you in the Global 1%?
I recently stumbled across a thought-provoking tool called the Global Rich List, which measures your income against the rest of the world.

Basically, anyone who makes more than $35K (US) per year is in the global 1% of income earners. I

f you are employed and living in a Western country you probably fall somewhere in the global 1%. Try it out and see for yourself. You’ll likely be amazed.
My point is that the slavery in the world is powered by some people who don't think of themselves as 'wealthy'. However, if slaves are used in a faraway land, to make our products cheaper, are we slavers?

Having the buying power I do makes me think of the effects. I can't stop it, but I can recognize that my (and my 30000000 other Canadian friends) end up encouraging poor working conditions in China.

I got my vaccine. I'm not that old, not in a 'hotspot', not desperate. In fact, I feel a bit greedy having it. It isn't my call, I let the health care professionals make their decisions, which included jabbing ME, but I'm one of the 'wealthy few', by any measure.

Isn't it supposed to be gross to decline to acknowledge ones wealth and power?

What a stupid metric. It's meaningless.

I wonder how you imagine it relates to the discussion of the 1% in this thread, or are you just doing your usual holier-than-thou bit?

I agree making a division there (at 1%) isn't any more 'meaningful' than 1.1%, or .8%. It's just a scale some folks use.

Right again, I do imagine. I haven't checked.

I think I'm in the 1%, vaccine-wise.

Number of people ~ 7.8 billion
Number of vaccines delivered to date - 210,000 (as per https://ourworldindata.org/covid-vaccinations)

I'm not going to trust my math here...do you think I'm in the 'global 1%'?

I do. I think I have enormous good fortune, wealth and privilige. Why you are disagreeing is a mystery...

The mystery is where you see a disagreement with your good fortune. :dunno: All I see is more of the same holier-than-thou bit you're stuck on.

Is it acknowledging my 'vaccine privilege' that you think is 'holier-than-thou'? Or does it make you uncomfortable because you don't see yourself as privileged?

We've got it good, if you think of a vaccine as 'good'. Lots of people get more uncertainty and suffering. Some of them maybe right here on Ratz.

It's your holier-than-thou bit that makes you come across as holier-than-thou.

Have you figured out how to relate your comment to the discussion of the 1% taking place in this thread yet?

How did you think Israel managed to corner the vaccine market. They paid 1000% the asking price. Money always talks.

Israel was also hit harder than many places wasn't it? Hardly seems like the 1% boogeyman you were chasing earlier.

Maybe I'm taking crazy pills, but to me the 1% boogeyman is the vaccine tourist, the low risk rich asshole who gets to cut in line by paying someone off.

We're vaccinating healthcare workers, the elderly, other hish risk people, prisoners, the military and others definitely not fitting the profile of the 1% boogeyman. And we've been doing that since vaccines became available here in December.

It's NOT the '1% bogeyman' used previously to vilify the most successful.

It IS the 1% most privileged with regards to access to the vaccine.

I don't know how you get my feeling guilty for being first, as me being 'holier than thou'. I wish things were different, so that this dose went to someone more vulnerable. I would gladly have stayed at the back of the line.

Irrelevant goobledegook with no apparent use for being other than to give you yet another shot at pointing out your moral superiority, the definition of holier-than-thou, and apparently your sole fucking reason for being on this forum.

Ya, why call my simple math, and acknowledgement of privilege, something awful? Oh, I get it, you are doing it to point out your moral superiority.

Carry on then.

Yeah, I might be. I don't think so, I think I'm genuinely fed up with your bullshit. But even if I am, it's not a pattern.

You do this in every thread.
