monkeypox are being investigated in several countries

Have a strange traditional disease?

And some 2021 material for conspiracy theorists

https://www.nti.org/analysis/articles/s ... l-threats/

https://www.nti.org/wp-content/uploads/ ... _Final.pdf

After the United States reported its first human case of monkeypox this year, U.S. media Newsweek reported on the 19th that the U.S. health department has ordered millions of doses of monkeypox vaccine worth $119 million.

On the 18th, Danish vaccine company Bavarian Nordic issued a statement saying that the company had signed contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars with the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA).

This time the show should come as planned.
every religious idea and every idea of God is unutterable vileness ... of the most dangerous kind, 'contagion' of the most abominable kind
"every religious idea and every idea of God is unutterable vileness ... of the most dangerous kind, 'contagion' of the most abominable kind. Millions of sins, filthy deeds, acts of violence and physical contagions ... are far less dangerous than the subtle, spiritual idea of God decked out in the smartest ideological costumes ..."

The monkeypox strains circulating in the Congo Basin have a fatality rate of 10% in humans, compared with less than 1% for West African strains.

Most people are not vaccinated against smallpox because smallpox is extinct and the vaccine has some risk of side effects.

They could use the existing smallpox vaccine to vaccinate people, though.

We need to completely avoid exposure to moonlight and wear jockstraps everywhere we go and only travel internationally via sailboat to stop the spread of monkeypox. If you disagree then you care more about the economy than saving human lives.
I am an internationalist, geolibertarian anarcho-futurist with syncretic egoist and Marxist tendencies. I consider authoritarianism to be intrinsically and irrevocably evil regardless of the authoritarians' intentions or economic inclinations. I do not recognize any law, government, border, or claim to private property.

I don't believe in kink-shaming unless your kink is submitting to the state.

Monkeypox sounds like an NS issue disease. I've come to hope that if this is as bad as the sensationalist say it is, that at least it'll get a more respectable mainstream name.

If you want a mainstream name, you can pick between tallpox, grandepox and ventipox.

I would want them to change the name to "rodentpox" or something; since it is transmitted by rodents, not monkeys.

Still, unlike covid this is not a new disease; nor is it particulary deadly.. so I am kinda missing why there is a hype now.

Could be a good thing really. Now that westerners are being affected it might lead to us developing a vaccine which would help Africa.
