They Should have Triggered the Fear of Missing Out
Now, hear me out, because this is a basic sales technique. The coronavirus panic that started 22 months ago could have been handled better. In the beginning the only hope at the time was a vaccine, so governments around the world had to shut everything down, to avoid overrunning their healthcare systems. We all know how that turned out. When governments try to enforce mandatory control, 25% of the population will rebel. Governments know that, but the medical people were adamant, so the only choice was ‘do as we say, or die.’
When the Pfizer vaccine was first approved, the tactic should have just been, ‘only some of you will be able to get this protection.’ Then everyone would have wanted it. (As proof, rapid testing kits have been sporadically available, and demand has never stopped.)
Perhaps, that’s the other side of the coin: basic supply and demand. (Toilet paper, anyone.)
I rest my case, m’lord.
