THE CHANGE OF WIND
THE VACCINATORS can no longer claim to be able to prevent epidemics. They now have to depend on the great drama of “conquering” them, usually with vaccines rushed by air with all the familiar ballyhoo. Not having enough vaccine to cope with smallpox in the very places where one would expect to find plenty of both is the recognised prescription for “stamping out” an epidemic. By the time mass vaccinations have been organised, the worst will be over; most of the contacts will already have been exposed and will, as usual, have resisted infection or will have had “subclinical” attacks. These people are obviously the best prospects for showing the wonderful “modifying” or “protective” effect of vaccination in each of the affected localities, and the doctors can be forgiven for forgetting that epidemics always die out anyway.
One doctor, sent out on such a mission with a colleague, claimed to have seen several thousand people die of smallpox. Possibly they were not all vaccinated—not by him, at least—but, as to stamping out the outbreak, this allopath freely admitted that his colleague, a homoeopath, presumably using an oral prescription, was every bit as successful as he himself. This is worth noting (particularly by advocates of “horrific” vaccinations with virulent lymph), because the homoeopathic method is so much less dangerous than the usual one. The travelling public should agitate for its universal recognition. It would be a big step forward—for them, at least.
Mass vaccination frightens the Ministry of Health more than it does the radio-doped public; and, in the opinion of Prof. C. W. Dixon, as expressed in his big book, Smallpox, 1962, and in his letters to the medical papers, what is needed is not mass vaccination but only “horrific” vaccination with “virulent” lymph for contacts only.
This raises the eternal and unanswerable question:
“What is vaccine lymph?”
The National Anti-Vaccination League always tries to be up-to-date on this repulsive matter, and when they wrote to the fountain-head, the Lister Institute, in June 1962, to ascertain the official source of the current issue of the “true life-preserving fluid”, they received the solemn reply that” . . the seed virus used for the production of smallpox vaccine is derived neither from cowpox nor from smallpox matter, but is a recognised strain known as pox-virus officinale”.
So now we know! Poor old Jenner!
Surely it is time to face up to the question of what the lymph is rather than what it is called. The only possible, true, scientific description of vaccine lymph is that it is something which Nature, or Providence, in its wisdom, considers too filthy to be allowed to pollute the tissues of any animal and therefore expels with contempt. But for that, we should never have had any vaccine lymph. It is evident, however, that if it is not smallpox virus in any form it cannot be a real vaccine.
THE ELECTRON MICROSCOPE
The electron microscope has come into the picture only after all kinds of theories and guesses have been discussed for more than 160 years. In the last century, Antoine Be-champ and Lionel Beale recognized certain minute living particles as being the active agents in vaccine lymph; Monckton Copeman, much later, regarded the similarity in size and appearance of such particles in smallpox pus and vaccine lymph as presumptive proof of a common origin. Béchamp would not have jumped to such a conclusion, but, without the electron microscope, no one could see the virsuses of these diseases. What, then, were they looking at? One can only suppose that it was microzymes or micrococci infected with virus.
The general question of the connection between germs and virsuses is a very complex one. We have to wait for scraps of truth to escape from the laboratories, as they sometimes do, almost invariably by accident or by indiscretion. It is amusing to hear that the makers of electron microscopes have promised the laboratories almost any degree of magnification (or resolution) that they want. It appears, however, that they have already got a bit more than they can handle.
It is curious to find that few of the animal viruses have been studied until fairly recently. The scientists, very naturally, were fascinated by the virus of tobacco mosaic, the first filterable virus discovered, and by other plant viruses. Then came the bacteriophages, which infect and kill bacteria. Human and animal virus diseases were almost ignored for years.. The fact is that plant viruses are far easier to obtain pure than the viruses from infected animals. Something like 85 per cent of the juice of an infected tobacco plant may be tobacco mosaic virus (TMV); some potatoes are crammed with virus which does no harm to them; if, however, one smears their juice on the leaves of other plants, it may start a virus disease.
Such facts are not only very interesting, they are clearly of immense general importance. They compel us to realise that all life on this planet has always depended upon the integrity of living cells which have adapted themselves to their food and environment. We are apt to forget this fact because it is by no means a simple one. It is, however, a very obvious one.
‘We know that if we try to grow foods in new and unsuitable soil they are at once attacked by pests, fungi or viruses. The indiscriminate use of new and deadly poisons is not the real answer to the problem. We are all getting countless poisons in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and on almost everything we handle. Our hospitals are plague-spots because of the deluge of antibiotics, and we are now being told that it is impossible to clean them out properly because they are being kept too busy! No wonder!
When will our Government be made to realise that the enormous increase in degenerative disease is the inevitable result of the ever-increasing number of poisons thrust upon us all for the sake of commercial profit?
The more new poisons we have, the more impossible it becomes for us to get used to them, or to identify any particular one of them as the cause of any particular disease, or of different diseases in different people.
“Whom the Gods would destroy they first make mad.”
Let us get back to sanity while there is yet time and stop this commercial villainy altogether, especially the injection of blood-poisons through the skin and thus bypassing the natural defences of the body.
When people have to travel overseas they are often in holiday mood and are a notoriously easy mark for confidence tricks. The oldest of the witch-doctors’ tricks is to do things which are so repulsive and unnatural that the wide-eyed public will say: “These clever devils would never dream of doing such awful things if they were not necessary; therefore they must be really necessary.” It is the oldest trick in the bag, and it still pays enormous dividends.
Thus, innocent travellers are persuaded that “shots” for several diseases are a necessary but quite trivial nuisance. No vaccination can be really trivial unless it is faked. We ask everybody to remember that it was the commercial success alone of smallpox vaccination which led to this huge trail of corruption, not only of public health but of the Press, the Radio and most of the government departments in the world.
In Britain, thanks very largely to the late Miss Lily Loat, we have had no compulsory vaccination since 1948; but there is a large amount of pigheaded tyranny on the subject in the Services and in schools and institutions; furthermore, a lot of stuffed-shirt societies and councils, and completely uneducated and unauthorised educational authorities, exert pressure which is far more difficult to resist than any law from which exemption can be claimed.
Anti-vaccinationists are almost invariably referred to as “ignorant cranks” by the popular publicists of the poison-plugging profession. They are ridiculed for making an unholy fuss about the “supposed” dangers of all vaccinations and medications. In truth, it is the poisoners themelves who do all the high-voltage scaremongering. They still speak of smallpox as a scourge which, but for Jenner’s “great discovery”, would have solved all the world’s feeding problems by killing off all the surplus millions.
What Jenner discovered, though hardly original in its general principle, was that it pays far better to scare 100 per cent of the fools in the world—the vast majority—into buying vaccine than it does to treat the small minority who really get smallpox and who cannot afford to pay anything. It was indeed a very great discovery—worth thousands of millions. That is why this kind of blackmail is still kept going.
When the Philippines were taken over by the U.S.A., in 1898, they became a shop-window for the sale of vaccine. They had had plenty of vaccination, of course, under Spanish rule, but the Americans began to clean the place up, and the smallpox figures took a big dive, as might have been expected—and the vaccinators took the big bows, as usual.
The sale of vaccine was enormous. The health reports prove this—an account rendered for the taxpayers to pay. When, however, the inevitable epidemic came, in 1918-20, it is worth noting that, out of a population of 10,000,000, the huge total of 71,000 deaths was more than equalled by several other epidemics during the same three years. Malaria took 93,000, influenza 91,000, tuberculosis 80,000, while dysentery, cholera and typhus together took another 70,000. It will be seen, therefore, that, during one of the very worst epidemics in all history, the deaths from smallpox were well below 1 per cent of the population. Yet we are always being told of the millions of lives saved by the noble work of Jenner and his prosperous followers.
We also hear of the noble work of Father Damien among the lepers of Hawaii, but we are not told that there was not one leper in the whole of the Hawaiian Islands before the noble work of Jenner reached them. By the ‘nineties, 10 per cent of the natives were lepers.
