Noah Yamore (Letters, 18 August) shows a disturbing level of ignorance to the situation we are in. For a start we live in a democracy not an oligarchy. Go to Russia for that, Noah.
Also The Echo reflects the community view, which is quickly recognising the brazen narcissism of the anti-vax crew.
I also wonder where he got the scoop about ‘the oligarchy wants to eliminate 90 per cent of humanity’. A right wing website was it?
The context of the Great Barrier Reef reference escaped me. But while it’s there I was wondering something. I’m sure most of the ‘freedom chorus’ believe in global warming. Rightly so, it’s based on science, not scuttlebutt. So why are you so against vaccination? It’s exactly the same. Scientists, who know their shit, are trying to save people from their own delusions. Why don’t you believe this science? Oh that’s right it’s the ‘oligarchs’ conspiracy. Not much you can do about that one, I suppose. Totally logical. And I’m sure Extinction Rebellion are thrilled with Noah’s seal of approval.
Unfortunately, Noah’s opinions are reflective of a significant section of the local community. If their selfishness is what this community is then God help us.
