Healthy vs Asymptomatic

Prior to having surgery, the medical folks insisted I fill out a COVID Survey.  Apparently, it doesn’t matter if you’ve had the experimental vaccine or not; each individual is treated as if they have the COVID virus.  This would explain why each question is asked from the standpoint, “Are you currently Symptomatic or Asymptomatic?”

Interestingly, there’s an article written by several doctors, What Does Asymptomatic Mean?

“An asymptomatic infection is one in which a bacteria, virus, fungus, or parasite has invaded the body but has not yet caused any symptoms (like fever or a cough).

Your body may fight off the invader and you may never know it was there. Or, you may develop symptoms of the illness after an asymptomatic phase. Depending on the pathogen, you may be able to spread the germs to others even though you have no symptoms.”

If I’m interpreting the questionnaire/survey correctly, there is a presumption on the part of the medical industry that everyone is either sick and showing symptoms of the COVID virus, or, they have the COVID virus and have yet to display any symptoms, but are to be considered a threat to humanity.

At one time individuals who didn’t feel sick and had no symptoms of being sick were referred to as Healthy.

According to my grandfather, there was an exception to the old rule, at least when it came to observing a woman who appeared to be pregnant.  “It’s never polite to ask if she’s pregnant, as it could become awkward”.  He continued that thought by saying, “The only time it’s permissible to ask”, pausing as he put the rest of the sentence together, “…is if you can see the baby’s head crowning”.  He’d give a wink and a sly grin for having made a joke.

The COVID virus crisis, pandemic or well-played political device; call it what you will, has altered the presumption of ‘healthy unless proven otherwise’ into a dark pit where everyone must prove they don’t have COVID, even if the testing for COVID is less than accurate to the point of being flawed.

Hmmm… it dawned on me; the same thing has happened with the ‘presumption of innocent until proven guilty.  Far too many are willing to apply ‘trial by media’ as they find individuals, “Guilty, he must be guilty because it was on television,” depending on how the news media spins a story… but I’m getting off-topic, or am I?

We’re being led down the path of Totalitarian Marxist control as corporations and governments attempt to install Vaccination Passports to limit the movement and actions of individuals as if this kind of intervention were acceptable under our Constitutional Republican form of government.  “But it’s for the safety of everyone, so you must submit”.

Is this how a healthy society behaves?   I think not.
