The secrecy surrounding the contracts with COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers rightly feeds mistrust and undermines democracy. What is there to hide?
Imagine a pharmaceutical company that once had to pay a record $2.3 billion (yes, billion) for misinformation surrounding its products (read more on the FBI’s site). Imagine further that nearly a third of all drugs approved by the FDA in America face safety concerns after approval, and some 4500 substances and devices lose their approval each year because they turn out to be unsafe. And now, finally, imagine that this same company, in light of Covid, is rushing experimental vaccines to market and keeping quiet about what it has agreed with the big buyers, i.e. the states or the EU.
The main thing is that the narrative remains intact.
Crazy? No, that’s the reality. The company is called Pfizer and the head of the EU Commission is not only (once again) not handing over the text message she wrote to Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, but also threw herself around his neck with an award at an event of the Atlantic Council. So far, the media have been as indifferent to all this as they have been to, well, vaccine damage, vaccine deaths, and everything else that doesn’t fit into the narrative, such as swastikas and SS runes on the helmets of many a Ukrainian fighter. For the Pfizer CEO is a benefactor, Klaus Schwab a harmless visionary, Zelenski the hero-in-chief and Putin, of course, Hitler. So now Nazis are also fighting Hitler. Everything is quite logical. It has never been easier to understand the world out there if you are simply a “supporter of the current cause”. Was it ever easier to be on the right side without thinking and any differentiation?
What is written in the treaties is therefore none of your business, i.e. that of the citizen. Nor, incidentally, are your elected representatives, as EU MPs have revealed. And the media representatives, to be on the safe side, don’t even ask any more questions. You, the citizen, simply have to queue up for the next injection and say thank you for how great politics, the media and the virologists have been in getting you through the pandemic. After all, the critical actors and directors of the German initiatives #allesdichtmachen and #allesaufdentisch say thank you on behalf of all of us in the latest #Dankefüralles campaign, with the not entirely unimportant, tongue-in-cheek addition: From now on, we’ll manage on our own.
In return, Pfizer generously excludes liability for its product (p. 30ff.) and shifts the risk almost entirely to the member states. The member states must contractually accept that hitherto unknown long-term effects may emerge (p. 48). Privatizing profits and socializing risks, that was a certain shocker in the banking crisis of 2008, at least sufficiently bad that a few activists from “Occupy Wall Street” decided to camp out in a park near the New York Stock Exchange. Incidentally, this had as little to do with real capitalism as the behaviour of the pharmaceutical players had to do with health protection. But if I call it organized crime, I’ll get another strike on Facebook or LinkedIn in the freest West ever, so I won’t, of course.
In the era of the “New Normal”, many things make sense: the citizen takes and pays for vaccines, which he has to want because the state tells him so, and also bears all the responsibility. Have fun with the recognition of vaccine damage because both the vaccinators, who have earned a fortune from it, and the authorities don’t want to know about it.
Pfizer itself, by the way, even in the 4th quarterly report of 2021, does not want to rule out the possibility that new information on effectiveness, safety or possible serious side effects will emerge during the widespread use of its drugs (p. 39). That, of course, would cut into profits. In 2021, Pfizer sales were over $80 billion, almost twice as much as in 2020. By comparison, Russia’s military budget is about $60 billion a year. Meanwhile, German MPs around SPD MP Heike Baehrens and Green politician Janosch Dahmen, who want to push through compulsory vaccination for all adults (motion 20/899), are firmly of the opinion that the vaccines are “well-tolerated, safe and highly effective”.
Against this backdrop, one wonders where some people actually still manage to get their basic trust in anything at all. Clearly, the public and the media have been inoculated with a dose of cowering administered together with the mRNA vaccines, dissolved in highly questionable nano-lipids, but oh, we’ve been through all that before.
In any case, the German government has already diligently reordered vaccines until 2029 and Switzerland has also stocked up for 2023.
Freedom Day? Yes, the joke was good.
