A poll: should I write a book about the still-unfolding crisis of the mRNA Covid shots?
It would be maybe 150-200 pages and summarize all the bad news since 2021 - and the risks ahead. My biggest concern: it would take me away from the Stack for a couple of months.
I need your advice.
On March 23, 2021, I published my fourth and final Unreported Truths booklet - about the mRNAs. Near the end, I wrote:
Vaccine advocates see a scientific leap forward that may work not just against the coronavirus but influenza, other viruses, and even cancer… [they think] even if some kinks need to be worked out, the mRNA hypothesis has now been shown to work in the most dramatic possible way.
But to vaccine skeptics - anti-vaxxers - the mRNA vaccines are just another in a long line of overhyped vaccines. They are far more dangerous than the scientific community admits and have potentially catastrophic long-term risks…
As is usually the case in these dogmatic battles, the truth is likely somewhere in the middle. Both sides… have failed to see the vaccines for what they really are—a new technology that carries both promise and risk.
(Unreported Truths, then and now)
I’m proud of the booklet. It accurately captured the information we had then - and was skeptical without being hysterical at a time when we were at the peak of vaccine hype.
If you haven’t read it, I still think it’s worth your time.
But I no longer believe it.
Any honest risk-benefit analysis has shifted decisively against the jabs.
They stopped working against infection within a few months, and they appear to have negative efficacy against the Omicron variant - a fancy way of saying that vaccinated people are more likely to be infected. Their backers insist they prevent severe disease and death even after they fail against infection, but that theory relies largely on observational data that is hugely flawed.
On the other hand, evidence for both the short- and long-term risks of the mRNAs continues to mount. Three years after the mRNA vaccination campaign began, researchers are still finding troubling and unexpected side effects from the jabs. Those include the IgG4 class switch — as well a just-released paper showing that the mRNAs cause recipients to randomly and accidentally make vast numbers of non-spike proteins in addition to the spike proteins they are meant to produce.
The epidemiologic data is also highly troubling. Even as Covid largely ended, overall mortality soared in many countries that administered a fourth “booster” shot in late 2022. Deaths have fallen since but remain somewhat above normal in many highly vaccinated countries - exactly the opposite of what should happen in the wake of a pandemic.
People aren’t fools. They know the mRNAs did not perform as advertised. Demand them has collapsed; almost no one is taking boosters this fall despite aggressive marketing from both governments and Pfizer and Moderna, their manufacturers. And shares of the mRNA companies have also plunged.
But the companies have not given up. They are pushing ahead with efforts to get more mRNA shots approved. And the public health and journalistic wall of silence around the mRNAs remains as solid as ever.
(While you’re considering my marching orders for 2024…)
So. My question is this: do I need to write a book on the mRNAs, a follow-up to that March 2021 booklet? Or do you feel you are broadly aware of the problems with the shots and do not need a book-length work on them?
To be clear, this would not be a $5.99 booklet. I would be writing a real book this time, properly illustrated and formatted - a hardback, I think, and $25 or so. If I could do it without slowing down on the Stack, I would in a second - but I can’t. It will inevitably lead to me writing less here for a while (hopefully three months or less, though that’s an aggressive goal).
This poll really matters. If a large number of you say yes, I am much more likely to move ahead. So answer seriously - if you aren’t sure you would preorder, don’t say you would.
Looking forward to hearing what you think,
