Big Picture News, Informed Analysis

Introduction: Vaccine Voices Film Festival

Acknowledging the messy COVID-19 vaccine landscape.

People experience COVID-19 vaccines in different ways. Nine months after these injections began, legitimate perspectives are being ignored.

Governments, health officials, and most journalists have zero interest in acknowledging the bigger, messier picture. Instead, it’s all propaganda, all the time.

Get your shot. Get your next shot. Now get another.

Do your part. Don’t be selfish. Fall into line.

It’s as though we’ve all forgotten how incompetent governments can be (case in point: the $1 billion, decade-long debacle when Canada upgraded its public service payroll system).

It’s as though we’ve forgotten the many COVID lies we’ve already been told (see here, here, here, here, and here).

Bedrock concepts such as medical privacy, bodily autonomy, and informed consent have mysteriously vanished. As though they never existed.

Beginning tomorrow, and for the rest of September, this blog will feature a daily video in which COVID vaccines are discussed. Some will be short testimonials. Others will be longer interviews. Taken together, these videos will provide a more complete picture, a broader perspective.

Here’s to confronting the bad stuff, rather than sweeping it under the rug.


Over the past year, I’ve written 27 blog posts about vaccines in the context of COVID-19:
