People: "Man, you just can't trust those scientists and libtards. First, they tell you we don't need masks, then they say we absolutely need them, then they tell us it will take five years for a vaccine but we get it in less than one, and then we need two shots but now maybe it's three, and we'll be fine after the first wave but then there's another one and another one, and now it turns out that even if you're vaccinated you can still catch COVID-19 and spread it, and you know how they explain all this? They say that a lot of this is uncharted territory and no one could have foreseen piles of this and that they don't have perfect knowledge and that's how science works as they amass more data, I mean, is that pathetic or what, blaming their failures on not having perfect forecasting and predictive ability, what a bunch of fucking losers and con artists!!"
Same people: "Well, sure, here in Alberta, the UCP promised us a rosy economy and great jobs and full employment, but then there was the pandemic, and crashing oil prices, and the cancellation of pipelines, but whose fault is that, huh? How are we supposed to predict all that stuff? How could we possibly know all of that would happen, it's not like we should have prepared for any kinds of eventualities or have a contingency plan or anything. Christ, how can you blame people for not being able to predict the future?"
Please tell me I've made my point.
