The few and the powerful disproportionately control and shape the perspective of the many

To the exhibitor:

I would like to take this opportunity to mention some comparative examples of current and historical events that may broaden readers’ perspective on today’s coronaviruses and resulting vaccination mandates.

I am not an accomplished writer so I will present my thoughts in bullet form to keep this letter as short and simple as possible.

1. The military engagement of wealthy Western countries over the past decades in the Middle East has been presented to its citizens by political leaders, military experts and mainstream media platforms as necessary for global peace, stability and peace. security of its citizens against militants. The Terrorists. Similar to today’s pandemic coverage; Overwhelming media coverage using imagery, slogans, rhetoric, dogma and commentary was used to justify these military actions which resulted in the expenditure of billions of dollars in taxpayers’ money. Those of us who have questioned these actions and the prevailing narrative are sometimes seen as ignorant, subversive and unpatriotic. We were told to “support the troops” and revere the “front line heroes”. Authorities and experts also tell us that the measures taken, with the resulting collateral damage, are regrettable but necessary. These countries now seem less well off than before. Huge sums of taxpayers’ money ended up in the hands of a few military and industrial multinationals. Instead of creating roads, hospitals, housing, community centers, power generation infrastructure, etc., many were bombed and destroyed. Now we are no safer than before. In fact, we are less safe, with more people angry and radicalized because of the death and destruction caused. Sometimes fear, whether real or perceived, causes societies to react in negative, destructive and senseless ways. This appears to be similar to some of the measures taken in response to this current pandemic. Perhaps the money and public resources spent on weapons etc. could have been used at home and abroad to invest in hospitals and critical infrastructure to prepare our growing sick and elderly populations. This would have alleviated the health crisis we are experiencing today.

2. The development and implementation of antibiotics. It was a game-changer in modern medicine, helping to prevent injuries and deaths from microbial infections with seemingly little unwanted risk. The effectiveness of antibiotics has led to widespread and sometimes excessive use in humans and animals. One such example is the well-documented overprescription of antibiotics by doctors to their patients as a “panacea” measure for many ailments. Another example is the overuse of antibiotics for profit, in intensive commercial animal husbandry environments to promote animal growth through the prevention of microbial disease. This overuse has led to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that have caused a host of problems and complications, costing society dearly. Can we compare this overuse to the possible overuse of vaccines as a “cure for everything” for infectious diseases? It should be noted that children growing up in Ontario during the 1970s and early 1980s received a total of 22 vaccine doses for the prevention of infectious diseases compared to now (2020 “pre-COVID”) where children receive 66 doses of vaccine by the time they turn 18. Antibiotics are “good”. More antibiotics are not necessarily “better”. Vaccines are “good”. Are more vaccines necessarily “better?” Can there be unintended negative consequences?

3. The development and introduction of semi-synthetic and synthetic opioids. Another medical technology that at first seemed like a panacea in the treatment of chronic and acute pain. Major pharmaceutical companies have developed, widely marketed and promoted these new drugs while minimizing the potential risks. Doctors embraced these drugs, prescribing them and, in many cases, over-prescribing them. In recent years, it has been understood that these drugs have significant potential in creating severe mental and physical dependence as well as the risk of death or injury from overdose. This has resulted in huge expenses for society, straining an already fragile healthcare system. Other legal investigations have exposed some pharmaceutical companies to data manipulation and obfuscation under the guise of proprietary information. This is not an isolated scenario. Major pharmaceutical companies have been investigated and convicted by judicial bodies around the world for withholding and manipulating data, sometimes years later after the damage to the company was done. All in the name of profit and competitive advantage. Does the public currently have access to all the data regarding these current vaccines? No. We have enough data that has been studied by medical scientists and specialists around the world raising legitimate questions and concerns about their safety, effectiveness and necessity, disregarding any outlandish conspiracy theories.

4. Macintyre powder. It’s been in the local news lately. It is a powder of aluminum and aluminum oxide administered (inhaled) by miners between 1943 and 1979. It was thought to prevent silicosis in miners. For many, this has been mandated by their employers as necessary for their health and safety. It was only later discovered that it had no protective effect and actually led to an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease and possibly other neurological diseases. Studies are in progress. The possible comparisons with vaccine mandates speak for themselves in my opinion.

I could go on with many more examples of drugs and medical treatments that at first only seemed beneficial with little adverse risk (i.e. thalidomide, some implants, negative reactions to multiple drug use , etc.) only to be recognized as causing unforeseen harm many years later after exposure to large segments of the population, especially the sick and elderly.

In conclusion, with the above examples in mind, it seems to me that one of the main underlying themes of advanced societies is: the powerful few disproportionately control and shape the outlook and actions/reactions of the most large numbers, often for their own benefit. This is done through various means, including the use and control of public resources, control of information through the media, including books, newspapers and digital platforms. Some of us find it hard to believe that those in positions of both public and private power would offer nothing but the absolute truth about the important issues of the day. I believe it is up to the individual to question everything that is presented to us in society. To be curious. Be critical. Exercise your intellect through the pursuit of knowledge. It could help create a better society in my opinion. Sometimes what may at first appear to be a straightforward question is actually more complex and nuanced. I hope this letter helps the reader expand their perspective and understanding/empathy with those of us who choose not to participate in this current vaccination regimen. Instead, choose a healthy diet and lifestyle and, if necessary, undertake effective and well-researched therapies in the event of contracting these constantly changing corona viruses.
