- Take All the Credit for Success
Vaccine manufacturers and the medical industry have declared themselves fully responsible for the significant decline in mortality from infectious disease over the last century. When asked for evidence of vaccine effectiveness, vaccine proponents point to the decline of whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps, polio and other “vaccine preventable” diseases. The fact that the mortality rates of these diseases declined up to 99% prior to the introduction of the vaccine is not considered relevant.
- Tell a Good Story
The vaccine story is a great story! No question. “Vaccines are a miracle of modern medicine.” “Vaccines have saved millions of lives.” “The benefits of vaccination far outweigh the risks.” The problem with this story is it is not supported by clinical or biological evidence. But when you have a good story, you don’t need evidence.
- All for One and One for All
The medical industry and the media refer to vaccines as if they are one uniform product. No differentiation is made between a vaccine produced by Merck versus a vaccine produced by GlaxoSmithKline. A vaccine for chicken pox is no different than a vaccine for measles. A vaccine given to a sixteen year old is no different than one for a newborn. When you question the safety and effectiveness of one vaccine, you question the safety and the effectiveness of all vaccines. Individual consideration is not permitted.
- Under Report Adverse Effects
No one likes to hear about adverse effects. Besides, they happen to someone else’s children. While the medical industry claims to keep accurate data on the number of incidences of vaccine injury, there is no clear definition of vaccine injury and no mandatory requirement to report adverse events following vaccinations. It’s up to each individual health practitioner to self-report that what they did caused harm to their patient. It’s also important to keep any data on vaccine injuries hidden from the prying eyes of the public. Better yet, deny that vaccines cause injury. If you have to admit to vaccine injury, pick a good round number like “one in a million”.
- Hear No Evil. See No Evil. Speak No Evil.
It’s important not to discuss any concerns about vaccine safety or effectiveness. Tell the mainstream media that providing balanced reporting on vaccines is irresponsible. Even when CDC scientists take whistleblower status, claiming fraud and the destruction of data, there is nothing worth reporting. Besides, your advertising revenues might be at risk if you report on vaccine injuries or government fraud.
- Claim Consensus
Everyone knows vaccines are safe and effective. The science is settled. No long-term clinical trials are needed to substantiate these claims. It would be unethical to conduct clinical research with an unvaccinated population. Even discussing vaccine safety is irresponsible. Asking questions about vaccine effectiveness is anti-science. Everyone knows there is no vaccine for stupid people.
- Let the Money Speak for Itself
Money is the best criteria to decide the outcome of research. Money should decide which studies get published. Money should decide what research will be done and what questions will be asked. Money should decide what editors allow on their programs and in their newspapers. Money should decide which politicians will be elected. Money should decide what is in “the greater good”. And who has more money that the pharmaceutical industry.
- Everyone Must Believe
It’s not good enough that most people believe in the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. It’s not good enough that vaccines rates are 99% effective. Everyone must believe. Everyone must partake. Everyone must be vaccinated for the greater good. There is a theory called ‘herd immunity’ that means everyone must be vaccinated to be effective. Just getting vaccinated yourself is not enough protection. Mandate vaccines if people aren’t responsible enough to get vaccinated. We can’t have any unvaccinated children around to remind us of what a healthy immune system is like.
- Keep Everyone Afraid
If everyone doesn’t get their required vaccines, killer diseases will return and get us all. We need to stop those “vaccine preventable diseases”. It’s the responsible thing to do. Anyone who doesn’t vaccinate is a danger to the community. There is no time to discuss the matter. Vaccine decisions are best made from a place of fear rather than thoughtful evaluation of the evidence. Do you want polio to come back?
- Avoid Any Discussion
It’s best not to discuss the matter. It just confuses people. Everyone knows that vaccines are safe and effective. It’s like discussing whether the earth is round. The time for discussion is over. We don’t need to investigate this any further. The bottom line is – the more vaccines, the better. Terrorize any professional who does honest research and reports negative effects. “Wakefield” them.
“Any possible doubts, whether or not well founded,
about the safety of the vaccine cannot be allowed to exist.”
