As the title says.

 

Focus on words that spring to mind for you on the vaccine debate and how it is played out here and in other media

 

control

fearful

complicated


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Perhaps this is not what she meant BUT the definiton of a circle jerk (other than the literal one!) is a self-congratulatory discussion where little to no progress is made. Id agree with her assessment that that is what certain threads feel like here at times.

Seems like half the responses are words the poster would use to describe *vaccines* rather than the vaccine debate. But perhaps I'm misinterpreting.

yeah i was thinking that too

 

as for the debate itself:

 

circular

overly emotional

dismissive
