Attorney Aaron Siri recently published a detailed critique of Dr. Paul Offit’s position on the safety of childhood vaccines. Please bookmark and read it.
Although in the minority, I do know lay people, like myself, who saw through the insanity and refused the Covid jab. As costly as it was (job loss), I don’t regret it.
Please, don’t be too hard on yourself. The vaccination spell cast by Edward Jenner set a very deep tap root that has infected the thinking of almost everyone. Charles MacKay said it best with his observation that we humans think in herds, go mad in herds, and gain good sense slowly, one by one. A broad awakening will take a while.
To inject 'vaccines" and more and more "vaccines" in every human being on the planet and in animals, that is the biggest crazyness of the last century, the population is not healthier and protected, but sicker and more vulnerable. That should say a lot. "Safety"? All the fight is for nothing if is not for answering to the most important questions: are these all vaccines, these products, needed and where are the studies on totally unvaccinated people.
This was an excellent article. Many thanks for being so lucid on this subject. Good title, too!
I feel like (hope!) that the courage, diligence and integrity of people like yourself Dr Setty, will slowly , gradually chip away at this seemingly impenetrable wall of arrogant “fake science” that is currently spreading its cancerous tentacles into our lives ! Please never give up . I wish I could offer financial support , but all I can really offer is my prayers . I’m so grateful to you .
Wow! Thank you! This is a tectonic shifting article. Like you, and the majority, I believed our vaccines are tested in placebo controlled studies. When Bobby first said no vaccine has received long term, pre-licensure placebo controlled safety tests, it seemed like lawyerly parsing. Our vaccines had to be safety tested! I couldn’t have imagine otherwise. Before I read this amazing piece, such was my cognitive dissonance, that I hoped you were making a big deal out of a technicalities i.e. what ‘placebo’ or ‘long term’ means. Thanks for chipping away at my illusions. Our vaccines are not safety tested!!! We’ve been scammed by the pharmaceutical industry and the agencies that are suppose to regulate them. Thanks for getting into the weeds. I never would have believed it otherwise. Offit saying water and saline placebos can kill you is pure boldface obfuscation! Thanks for your work, courage and clarity.
We know the earth is the center of the universe, the Church says so. No need to look through the telescope, that's not how science works. Great summary, Madhava, I'll check out Siri's response. One wonders whether these august academicians would accept a scientific paper in their classes that offered such lame arguments.
When they labeled the covid shot as a "vaccine" despite the fact that this is actually known in the sciences as a "transfection" (that is used on lab animals with shortened lifespans) that unraveled the whole vaccine edifice for me. If they were willing to lie about that and coerce something so obviously different, clearly ineffective and dangerous, then a thorough evaluation was due for the whole of vaccinology.
What are the odds that if the childhood vaccines aren’t properly safely tested then what are the odds that vaccines for pets are? Do you know that vets once gave the jabs under the skin of the neck, but changed it to the leg because it could be amputated if the vaccine causes cancer? That means that vets knew damn well that the vaccines causes cancer in pets! But did they ever inform you of that? I haven’t been informed.
"This is not what a person of integrity would do."
That is a key insight.
Hotez, with a likely vaxx-injured child, is incapable of admitting he was wrong. You, with children having no serious obvious injuries, admit you were wrong, and you are beating yourself up over it.
You have integrity. Hotez has none.
Sentiment is highly unappreciated as an asset. Both of them have lost the most precious asset of them all — trust. Hotez and his shill, Farhad Manzoo are right in that there’s no point in debating. That horse has left the barn. One wonders how long they’ve been committing scientific fraud.
Love the ratio on Offit's piece! There are only 3-4 bloodhounds in the comments desperately attempting to discredit anyone who speaks against "the narrative ". If there's any blessing from Covid it's that many (myself included) have awoken from their slumber on the mass exploitation tptb are wielding against us in so.many.ways.
You write: “If Offit is correct, Siri and Kennedy can be blamed for stoking vaccine hesitancy at considerable cost to public health.” Not true. If Offit is correct, the most one can say is that vaccines are not poisonous. But their efficacy would still have to be proven.
It never will be, because all vaccines are poisons that create rather than prevent disease, but that is a separate question from the logical gap in your statement.

Recent tweet from Jeffery Tucker of the Brownstone institute: "People think they should watch the movie Contagion to learn about science and infectious disease. This is wrong. Instead, they should watch the movie Goodfellas. It tells you more about how the industry actually operates."
