Trying to Understand

Groupthink is an occurrence where by a group comes to a unanimous decision about a possible action despite the existence of fact that points to another correct course of action.

Whilst vaccination saves lives, vaccine promotion due to market forces compared to promotion via public health evidence can have a negative impact. After months of warning alerts, in June of 2009 World Health Organisation declared a global Swine Flu pandemic. Ultimately the H1N1 Swine Flu, still circulating today, posed no greater risk of severe disease than seasonal influenza, which epidemiologists have stated was obvious almost immediately, as has been comparably demonstrated for Covid-19. New vaccines were nevertheless hurriedly developed and aggressively marketed over many months, supported by the pandemic status maintained until August 2010.

In January 2010 members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, led by Dr Wolfgang Wodarg, launched an inquiry into the Pharmacy industry’s undue influence over World Health Organisation and public health scientists. This ultimately put out the Swine Flu pandemic fire, but not before vaccine harms were caused to thousands, mainly but not exclusively children. Like many scientists speaking out about inconsistencies related to the Covid-19 pandemic response, Dr Wodarg was subjected to a malicious smear campaign which continues today.

Robert F. Kennedy gave evidence to the Corona Ausschuss with Reiner Fuellmich’s team about four months ago, which is available at this link. He provides insights into vaccine safety and strategies employed by the vaccine industry.

Covid-19 vaccine rollouts seem to precede spikes of cases and/or deaths in many locations across the globe. A small sample of many similar patterns is shown below, taken from the interactive data explorer at Our World in Data. The death rates appear to be much lower in populations who are not vulnerable to disease due to age demographics +/- other epidemiological factors such as population density, seasonality, Vitamin D levels and cross-immunity from exposure to other coronaviruses. This may be because there are few vulnerable people available for vaccination in such populations? It is important to note that correlation is not the same as causation, that these patterns raise many questions rather than providing any answers, and that there are places in the world where these patterns have not been observed.


In dealing with parents choosing not to, or to only selectively vaccinate their children, this has also been my experience.
