Yup - it's a powerful technology, but it is also open to abuse - and it is criminally abused with great frequency. The criminals have figured out that it is extremely difficult to hold them accountable.

Vaccines are one of the great public health advances of the late 20th century. Take a look at this table if you doubt that. It's easy to forget that people died of polio, measles, diptheria and mumps in the US at mid-century. Millions more got those diseases but survived. Now you don't know anyone who ever had any of those diseases. Smallpox has been eradicated from the world. Remember that there was a polio panic in the 1950's where public swimming pools were closed and the president was paralyzed by it in the 1940's. After those successes, big phama realized that they could make big money by scaring people into getting vaccines for less dangerous (flu) and less common diseases. Now you have to be selective about which ones are helpful. That doesn't mean that all vaccines are evil or part of some giant conspiracy.

An elderly co-worker asked me if I had mumps when I was little, and I was nonplussed. Who the fuck has had mumps? But she had, and I later found out that my parents and even my older siblings had it.

I had chicken pox, though, and kids don't get that anymore. A friend mentioned chicken pox to a 5-6 year old neighbor, he didn't know wtf she was talking about.

I don't like the outright lying that surrounds them. Healthcare personnel are supposed to push vaccines while ignoring any claims of death and injury resulting from them. I guess a few dead sheep don't matter when you're pushing the herd immunity theory.

For the major diseases; it's essential. You don't need vaccines for common diseases like the flu. Cold showers help your immune system.

too many are globalist experiments that turn the frogs gay.
