It is a fundamental mistake to see the enemy as a set of targets. The enemy in war is a group of people. Some of them will have to be killed. Others will have to be captured or driven into hiding. The overwhelming majority, however, have to be persuaded. — Frederick Kagan
The measles vaccine story sounds quite fantastic – and unbelievable. Magic numbers, accidental discoveries … a familiar template.
It was only blood.
But more than 60 years ago, that blood from an 11-year-old boy was used to stop one of the deadliest childhood illnesses — measles.
Not long after recovering from the illness, Edmonston remembers getting pulled out of study hall by Peebles, who told him the good news — they were able to isolate the virus strain, and would be making a vaccine from his blood. After undergoing many years of human trials, the vaccine was finally released to the public in 1963 — nine years after his blood was first taken.
This is possibly the only true part of the likely fable:
When the time came to vaccinate his own son in the 1970s, Edmonston and his wife decided not to because they were concerned about possible reactions to vaccines.
“She was dead set against (the vaccination) and I was a bit disappointed. But you see we had an agreement that child rearing was largely in her hands, so I went along,” he said.
Now, Edmonston attributes high rates of vaccination to the fact that his son, now 34, never got measles.
“Our own child did not benefit from the measles vaccine in which I had a small part. We knew that we were benefiting from a risk that was being taken by others,” he told the Star in an email.
More than I can remember in recent media memory, all the big media fakery propaganda guns are being pulled out worldwide to counter the growing awareness of what may be one of the biggest health hoaxes of all time: the vaccine.
My position is vaccines do nothing at all, with the possibility that they may harm. It’s only because I question everything I’m told in the wake of the 9/11 deception that I’d even consider questioning modern health “science”.
Perhaps there are more vax doubters than media doubters. They’d probably be easier to convince of media fakery than pro vaxxers.
History is being made on how the world is responding to vaccination. Even long-term health professionals are refusing to vaccinate themselves in the face of continued injury and death being caused by the practice. Almost half of healthcare professionals are now refusing to vaccinate and children’s uptake for HPV, influenza, chicken pox and many other vaccines are reaching historic lows as the awakening spans across the planet.

Read this comment by Johan Backes, and then answer the poll question if you would.
On the other hand, the people least likely to lie are those who score high on psychological scales of responsibility and those with meaningful same-sex friendships. In his book Lies! Lies!! Lies!!! The Psychology of Deceit (American Psychiatric Press, Inc.), psychiatrist Charles Ford, M.D., adds depressed people to that list. He suggests that individuals in the throes of depression seldom deceive others—or are deceived themselves—because they seem to perceive and describe reality with greater accuracy than others. Several studies show that depressed people delude themselves far less than their nondepressed peers (does this statement typify fakeologists? Its a great poll question Ab…) about the amount of control they have over situations, and also about the effect they have on other people. Researchers such as UCLA psychologist Shelley Taylor, Ph.D., have even cited such findings as evidence that a certain amount of self-delusion—basically, lying to yourself—is essential to good mental health. (Many playwrights, including Arthur Miller and Eugene O’Neill, seem to share the same view about truth-telling. In Death of a Salesman and The Iceman Cometh, for example, lies are life sustaining: The heroes become tragic figures when their lies are stripped away [Will NASA be seen as a literary tragedy one day?].)
