V-Word: The Multi-Billion Dollar Sacred Cow
...and some linguistic sleight of hand.
This story is about words and profits.
It is about an important English word that, I believe, is being currently hijacked in a semi-coordinated fashion to serve extremely ambitious economic goals. So I am going to commit an act of blasphemy against political correctness (and enjoy it).
The word is “vaccine” (hereinafter “v-word” because I’d rather not get booted off social media for pissing on the multi-billion-dollar sacred cow).
I’ll start with describing the most obvious and the simplest hijack of this word.
If you remember, a couple of months ago, in response to complaints about how the aggressively promoted medical product of the day did not fit the legal definition of the v-word—and therefore, the legal immunity enjoyed by the manufacturers of said product could theoretically be contested in case of injury—the Merriam-Webster dictionary went ahead and changed the definition of the v-word to include gene therapy. I found the timing of the change (directly on the heels of the legal critique) particularly interesting.
Below is the short and sweet 2019 definition of the v-word.
By contrast, the current definition, supplemented by examples, is super long. It kind of reads like an outline of a detailed business plan of the biotech industry and its different product lines. The emphasis on gene therapy, including synthetic gene therapy, is noteworthy. Also noteworthy is the inclusion of gene therapies against “noninfectious agents, substances or diseases.”
(Let’s please keep in mind that genetic manipulation is incredibly important component of the philosophy and the business model that are driving the current socio-economic reform. The pushers of the reform are determined to blur the difference between what’s natural and what’s constructed, between the man and the machine—and to create an illusion of a world in which we can give birth to machines and assemble people. And while it sounds batshit—and it absolutely is—the ambition really does exist, and various government documents and contracts do confirm it.)
So here is the latest definition:
Let’s talk about the procedural context of this relatively simple hijack of the word. It so happens that in the United States, for instance, medical products defined as a v-word are managed using procedural and legal rules that are different from the rules used for other medical products defined as therapeutic drugs.
One of the important differences is that the manufactures of v-word are immune from legal liability and can’t be directly sued by citizens claiming injury (with some nuance but for all practical purposes, it is the case). The citizens claiming v-word injury have to follow a special legal process to seek damages (and yet, from what I understand, a different, extra difficult process for those claiming injury from the COVID-19 v-word). And if, despite all challenges, said citizens manage to prove that they had been injured by a v-word, the settlement gets paid out of taxpayer money, and the manufactures don’t lose a dime. It’s quite brilliant actually.
From any point of view, this is an extremely attractive business model for the manufacturers of the product, especially once they succeed at creating an atmosphere in which v-word holds the status of a cultural sacred cow, and criticizing any product defined as such gets people in the medical profession near-automatically fired and/or investigated “for endangering public health.” Throw in overt or covert v-word mandates—and, as a manufacturer, you’ve built yourself a miraculous business model and secured a captive market—and the more grave “health emergencies,” the richer you become.
[In fact, there was a bit of a v-word scam performed in 2009 when the manufacturers had signed big contracts with the governments of developed countries that obliged said governments to purchase significant amounts of the v-word from the manufacturers in case of a pandemic declared by the WHO (see also this)—and then of course the WHO, known for being a little too close to the main players in the v-word industry, went ahead declared a pandemic that turned out to be not really a pandemic—but the contracts were honored none the less.
Also, well, well, well, didn’t Peter Daszak, a well-connected gentleman of the “yeah I am really excited we’re working with the Wuhan lab on gain-of-function but anyone who says that this virus came from the lab is a conspiracy theorist” fame—and also the gentleman who, in his FOIA-released private email, specifically thanked Dr. Fauci for “debunking” the lab hypothesis—didn’t he say in 2015 that that the most important factor in creating a strong market demand for a pan-coronavirus v-word was going to be media hype, and once the media hype was there, “the investors will respond”? Okay, it could be a coincidence but it seems like this particular man has his fingers deeply in every aspect of both the “coronavirus pandemic” and the “health response”—and it just so happens that the response is exactly what the he was looking for. Oh, and he was also appointed to investigate the lab hypothesis under the auspices of the WHO. Furthermore—and this is something that makes me wonder—allegedly, every aspect of what we got to know as the “novel coronavirus” has been patented (!!!) prior to 2019, according to a testimony by David Martin, who, let me repeat, is rather impressively credentialed and highly qualified.]
Now, of course, if too many citizens can prove their v-word injuries, it’s bad publicity for the manufacturers—but this is where lobbying and owning media comes in very handy—because, as you know, saying anything unflattering about the v-word actually does get doctors fired and investigated, and gets everybody else booted off social media… in other words, saying anything unflattering about the v-word is not without consequence, and for that reason, many choose to keep their opinions to themselves and keep mouths shut so that said mouths can keep eating food.
[See also this tweet by Robert Malone, a major contributor to the development of the mRNA v-word technology whose life became very interesting the moment he expressed concerns about the safety of the COVID v-word. Once he did that—and despite his credentials and his continuous work with the U.S. government—he was mocked, attacked, edited out of Wikipedia, and deleted from LinkedIn (then later restored), etc. etc.]
Furthermore, reporting v-word injuries is very inconvenient for doctors. The VAERS system that was put in place in the United States to track them is rather cumbersome and is not always up, and the doctors filing reports of v-word injuries are discouraged on every page with intimidating legal language. (They also happen to lose money on filing VAERS reports since each report takes about half an hour, and that’s half an hour they could be sleeping, dining, or making money.) Additionally, at some hospitals at least, there is allegedly an officially stated preference that doctors don’t even mention the v-word when they document strange health issues that show up around the time of getting a v-word. My own close friend, who nearly died after enthusiastically getting a v-word, has asked the doctor to file a VAERS report. The doctor declined. So there is this entire collective dance to cover up for the sacred cow. And it’s not good.
But there is more, and it’s more grand!
What I am observing is a trend to use this word to describe any type of “cure” or “solution,” which is interesting because once you call something a v-word, it grows a linguistic protective robe and a pretty halo.
Like, here we have “digital vaccines” (I mean, uhm, digital v-word), which is a term for behavioral modification software (yes, behavioral modification software). Please click on images to go to respective websites.
Let me go off on a tangent now and rant about behavioral modification as a part of the taylorist plight of making living beings efficient, for the master’s convenience. There is a short story about a boy and a hamster by a Russian writer whose name I forgot. So the boy was into efficiency. He abhorred the fact that the animal pooped on an erratic schedule, forcing the boy to clean the cage at random times. So he decided to make it efficient and started methodically squeezing the poop out of the hamster. Naturally, the poor animal died shortly after that procedure was introduced.
To my senses, that short story says is all about forced efficiency. No one likes to be handled like a machine, it’s incredibly painful. These “vaccines” will create so much neurosis that, well, maybe the companies can sell a lot more drugs on top of that, which is maybe what they want to do in the first place. But this has nothing to do with health or well-being. And mind you, when a parent teaches a child, it takes a lot of soul, a lot of wisdom, and a lot of patience—while this "behavioral modification” is pure abuse. Enough said.
And here we have Klaus Schwab himself talking about “vaccinating the internet” in the context of the “cyberpandemic with COVID-like characteristics.” (What does it mean? I have no idea, I think it’s just weaponized gibberish.)
I’ll end with two things, a puzzling speech by Psaki in which she said that v-word are “safe and they can still kill you if you are under 27” (transcript)—and a strangely current clip from the Simpsons.
