Given their profitability and power, it’s no surprise that the pharmaceutical companies have won themselves sweetheart legislation from the US government. From Joseph Mercola at lewrockwell.com:
This week, we celebrate our 12th anniversary of Vaccine Awareness Week. In this video, Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) — which will celebrate its 40th anniversary as an organization in April 2022 — summarizes some of the high and low points we’ve experienced over the past year.
“It’s really kind of surreal for me to watch what has unfolded since the winter of 2020,” Fisher says. “In the 1990s, I predicted that the day would come when we would not be able to function in society unless we had received every government recommended vaccine.
I didn’t exactly understand how they would get there. Well, now we know how they got there, and it’s like living my worst nightmare, which I thought my children and grandchildren would be grappling with after I was long gone. Instead, I’m here to witness it and it’s very disturbing.
But within this difficult challenge, we also have opportunity, because I truly think that what they’ve done has completely changed the public’s view of public health officials and of public health policy in general. And I don’t think they’re going to recover — perhaps ever — but certainly not for a long, long time.
The perception is that the public has not been told the whole truth about how this virus came about, and about the way in which they [need to] handle it.
Certainly, if you look at it, you see that psychological warfare has been used to create such fear and anxiety in the minds of so many people that they were willing to give up fundamental civil liberties in order to feel safe, [but it’s] an illusion of safety … I think they have overreached, because they are zealots in saying that everyone should get all these vaccines in order to keep the public safe.”
Growing Understanding of Vaccine Dangers
According to Fisher, polls show two-thirds of Americans do not want COVID shot mandates.1 They do not want to be required to show a vaccine passport in order to participate in society, enter a restaurant or a store, hold a job or go to college.2 “There is definitely not an appetite in this country for mandatory use of this COVID-19 vaccine,” Fisher says.
