It's a great vaccine, except it doesn't work so great
Alex Berenson is one of the few journalists to energetically question the logic of the mad war against covid and the dangerous weapons our governments have used to fight it.
Below is a letter/comment a reader sent to Alex Berenson's Substack place. Amazingly, Berenson’s best-seller ‘Pandemia — How Coronavirus Hysteria Took Over Our Government, Rights, and Lives’ has not been kicked off Amazon.
Berenson and other ‘deniers’ who said (nearly two years ago) that lockdowns are harmful and don’t work, that cloth masks are medically useless and that schools should stay open are being proven right every day.
Here’s a new report from researachers at Johns Hopkins University that says lockdowns had no effect on reducing covid mortality but did have “devastating effects” on the economy and contributed to numerous social ills.”
The collateral damage from lockdowns has been known since the spring of 2020, of course:
“They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence, and undermining liberal democracy,” the report said.
“Such a standard benefit-cost calculation leads to a strong conclusion: lockdowns should be rejected out of hand as a pandemic policy instrument.”
And here’s the smart comment from an anonymous reader at Berenson’s site:
"Among all the vaccines I have known in my life (diphtheria, tetanus,measles, rubella, chickenpox,hepatitis, meningitis and tuberculosis) — I want to also add flu and pneumonia—I have never seen a vaccine that forced me to wear a mask and maintain my social distance, even when you are fully vaccinated.
“I had never heard of a vaccine that spreads the virus even after vaccination. I had never heard of rewards, discounts, incentives to get vaccinated. I never saw discrimination for those who didn't. If you haven't been vaccinated no one has tried to make you feel like a bad person.
“I have never seen a vaccine that threatens the relationship between family, colleagues and friends. I have never seen a vaccine used to threaten livelihoods, work or school. I have never seen a vaccine that would allow a 12-year-old to override parental consent.
“After all the vaccines I listed above, I have never seen a vaccine like this one, which discriminates, divides and judges society as it is. And as the social fabric tightens… It's a powerful vaccine! She does all these things except IMMUNIZATION.
“If we still need a booster dose after we are fully vaccinated, and we still need to get a negative test after we are fully vaccinated, and we still need to wear a mask after we are fully vaccinated, and still be hospitalized after we have been fully vaccinated, it will likely come to ‘It's time for us to admit that we've been completely deceived.”
