A Vaccine Against Remedies Worse Than the Disease

It is a truth now being acknowledged, although not yet universally, that government-instituted measures against a pandemic may actually be a dreaded remedy worse than the disease.

It certainly seems to be the case with COVID-19. Researchers recently and “reluctantly” concluded, as reported by the Brownstone Institute, that for the COVID-19 pandemic, “nothing that governments did had any effect,” and there was “only cost, no benefit.” Other researchers reported that “despite the implementation of containment measures and COVID-19 vaccines,” global excess mortality has been rising. With the death spikes and disabilities aligning with the dates of the vaccine and booster rollouts and mandates, doctors are concerned the vaccines were the cause.

In hindsight, it appears the most important, hard-earned lesson of the last pandemic is that we need a “vaccine” against the authoritarian impulses that a pandemic can inflame and empower.

Really, just a booster would suffice, because our primary systems of protection are already in place. As both a nation and as individuals, we just need to exercise them and, along with our own intuition and common sense, work to strengthen and maintain a sort of mental muscle memory that will automatically kick in the next time a “pandemic” inevitably happens. At the moment, a looming bird flu crisis appears to fit the bill.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understood that we had a sort of natural immunity against sweeping rights-crushing edicts by virtue of our Constitution, its Bill of Rights, and a framework of government designed to ensure those rights were protected. But suddenly, in March of 2020, we found that it had all become a fragile network of safeguards, easily broken.

Beyond the halls of government, we found that even in the privacy of our doctor’s examining rooms, everything changed. We had thought we were served by a medical community that focused on the evaluation and treatment of one-patient-at-a-time and upheld the right of a patient to agree to a medical treatment with informed consent. Indiscriminate “public health” decrees, mandates and compliance and compensation programs shattered that illusion.

Until COVID-19, we had heard of or witnessed firsthand medical staff trying practically everything to save a patient, including prescribing drugs off-label and with regard to the anecdotal experiences of other physicians. But then, in 2020, many of us were told by our doctors to stay home with COVID until our “lips turned blue.” We were told not to listen to reports of prevention, early treatment or medications that were saving lives because it was “misinformation.” Shockingly, government-sponsored censorship of physicians and others expressing dissenting viewpoints and conflicting information became rampant.

In the past, we had also shared the common sense that if a person had no symptoms, they were not only not ill but also very likely not contagious. If a person was repeatedly “tested” for a virus, certain tests could indicate they were infected when instead they merely had some sort of similar viral fragment from the past—not necessarily infectious nor contagious. But frequent, invasive tests—even of the asymptomatic—became the required keys for entry into the world outside the isolation of our homes.

Before, we understood that vaccines were impractical for rapidly mutating viruses, were a substitute for naturally acquired immunity, and that if they were effective, the vaccinated person was protected by their vaccine. But when the COVID vaccines rolled out, the “experts” declared that not only was natural immunity inconsequential, but that a vaccine recipient was protected by the vaccines of others, a notion reinforced by rules requiring the unvaccinated to wear masks around the vaccinated.

Masks were mandated, even though most states had decades-old public safety laws outlawing the wearing of masks in public places. Not only were masks nonsensical and unhealthy, but they were also dehumanizing. They hindered communication, muffled voices, concealed expressions, frightened children, and caused those with mental illness to withdraw from conversation.

Along with the frequent testing, social-distancing signs, and tape-covered entrances, playgrounds and park benches, masks served as constant reminders of the pandemic and exacerbated an unhealthy fixation on disease and death. They enabled society to more readily regard the faceless others not as fellow human beings with souls but instead as dangerous, walking germs to be avoided.

The forced confinement, suffocating masking and repetitive and often painful testing also proved useful tools to set the stage of eager anticipation for a “warp speed” vaccine that would be heralded and welcomed as the only respite from all the discomfort.

Meanwhile, loved ones were dying alone inside hospitals, and our elderly were suffering from loneliness and broken hearts in nursing homes. Schools were closed. Businesses were shut down. Churches stood empty. Later, reopenings were limited by new arbitrary rules on distancing and capacity, forcing many to close permanently. And since it was an important election year, rules on mail-in voting were loosened to the point that fraud was inevitable, creating further unrest.

Massive shoulder-to-shoulder protests for “social justice” causes like Black Lives Matter were approved by public health officials, while at the same time, the cries of “If it only saves one life!” were tossed about by the “I Know Best” crowd to justify shutting down birthday parties and choir practices and even throwing those who refused the orders in jail—not for actual crimes committed, but because it was the “moral” thing to do.

By 2021, even the established definitions of “vaccine” and “efficacy” and notions of informed consent and “my body, my choice” were completely upended by the new mRNA injections and mandates. Suddenly, the state had determined it had the right to coerce medical treatment by withholding employment, access to education, and community participation. Most obeyed, and those far down the ranks from the upper echelons of the “experts” enforced compliance, and too many did so happily. HIPAA was ignored, and people from restaurant hostesses to security staff demanded others show vaccine certification for entry.

A similar interest, however, was lacking over the quickly apparent and multiplying reports of vaccine injuries. There was an unwritten, heavily censored rule: “Ask about vaccine status, but don’t talk about vaccine injuries.” The media promoted and protected the “safe and effective” narrative, ensuring that vaccine injuries seemed as rare as the supposedly rare “breakthrough infections.” The vaccine manufacturers, exempt from liability and benefiting from mandates and government marketing, rather than spending time investigating injuries, instead worked on creating boosters for the next strain and their bottom line.

The COVID-19 pandemic response—not the virus itself—nearly crushed us: our economy, our rights, and our psyches. We lost loved ones. Livelihoods. Personal relationships were broken and many have still not healed. Many lost their health from vaccine injuries. Many lost their minds from the fear and still live in it. You still see them walking alone in a parking lot, still wearing a mask, probably anxiously awaiting their next booster.

Overall, the pandemic response and “vaccine” cure aren’t proving to be the only things worse than the disease. Fear proved to be much more potent and deadly—both literally and figuratively.

But sadly, really nothing has been admitted, litigated, punished or legislated such that it would prevent it all—or worse—from happening again. So when the next pandemic arrives, bringing along with it tyranny under the guise of “health security,” we must rely on our Creator-endowed, recently-boosted immunity and have the resolve to say: No. Never again. My body. My choice. My informed consent.

  1. I don’t know what other people did but when companies started insisting that employees get vaccinated, I told my direct boss that, should the order for mandatory jab compliance come down the line, the day I was informed of the policy would be the first day of my two weeks’ notice. And, while I am extremely grateful that such a policy was never enacted, I absolutely meant what I told my boss-- no job is worth turning myself into a lab rat for a company that would bear no responsibility if their concoction had life-altering side effects.

    I have talked to people that got the COVID shots and I’ve heard a variety of reasons why they decided to do so but all of them ultimately fall into one of two categories – they trusted the “experts” or they were afraid…of the virus, of losing their jobs, of disapproval from friends/family, etc. Or even some combination of the two. And I respect their right to make those decisions, even if I think they chose unwisely.

    What I don’t understand is why more people didn’t refuse to comply. And, since I don’t understand, I have a hard time believing that the next time will be any different.
