Why I’m Hopeful About 2021

November 23, 2020

Vaccines–Too Little, Too Late?

November 18, 2020

Trust in institutions, authorities and Big Pharma are scraping the bottom of the barrel, and rushing these vaccines into mass use with extremely high expectations of efficacy is setting up the potential for a devastating loss of trust in the vaccines should they fail to live up to the claims of 100% safety and 95% effectiveness.
