Abject poverty has escalated to lethal levels during the pandemic. Communities are disempowered and sabotaged by an obsessive focus on COVID-19, manifested in lockdown policies and now coerced vaccination.
In the delicate microscopic ecosystems humans inhabit, obstructing exposure to a range of pathogens threatens, rather than protects, public health.
Vaccine passports are a pointless ‘public health’ tool that will undermine trust in the medical profession and vaccination programs. They seem to serve economic, financial, political and ideological agendas. Most fundamentally, they are unethical.
A template letter that can be edited as needed when an employer mandates a COVID-19 vaccine for employees. For use in South Africa.
This is the first of a series of articles by Nick Hudson on the political clown world that public health has become as most of the world has abandoned all guidelines and principles of public health in favour of previously contraindicated policies that have turned out to be ineffectual and very damaging.
The response to Angelo Ryan’s opinion piece in the Mail & Guardian on “vaccine hesitancy” is more interesting for what it tells you about the state of our captured media, than what it tells you about vaccination. Daily Maverick, Groundup, Bhekisisa and others have once again told us that they are promoting a specific narrative and censoring and demanding that others censor contrary views.

Censoring dissenting voices eliminates the mechanism of error correction and pushes humanity back into the dark ages.
