Turn on any TV channel in America today and you will eventually see a commercial for some kind of medication.
These run the whole spectrum of ailments. From constipation to mental illness to cancer and auto immune diseases. And everything in between.
All of these commercials follow the same basic format. One or more people with the same ailment and how it limits or otherwise impacts their daily lives. Then the drug gets introduced.
Then there is the consultation with a doctor or pharmacist and how the drug can help the impact that was previously stated. The commercial ends with the people saying how great it was that they started taking it. And how you should contact your doctor as well to see if the medication is right for you.
Of course all during this we have a voice over describing the potential side effects of the medication. Death is sometimes included and what you should do if you start getting some side effects.
Every drug uses this advertisement pattern. From over the counter medication through prescription drugs to potentially life saving wonder drugs made of miracles.
Every one of them. Except for the Covid-19 vaccine drugs.
The commercials that exist for these drugs are very different. First they use an emotional attack approach. Thus causing you to have an emotional reaction to it instead of a reasoning and rational one.
At no time during these commercials, or anywhere else, is any report of side effects of any variety from getting the Covid-19 shot. It is as if this life saving wonder drug has no side effects at all since they aren’t mentioned. Yet we all know that there are dangerous and deadly side effects to taking this jab.
Also there is never the statement to check with your doctor to see if taking the jab is right for you. It is always right for everyone aged 5 years and older. No questions asked or even allowed.
In fact if you ask questions about the Covid-19 wonder vaccine. You become the cause of all misfortune in the world.
You are why other people die.
You are why other people can’t visit their family.
You are why a business had to close.
You are why other people can’t travel where they want to go.
You are why someone else lost their job.
You must be a religious fanatic.
You must be a science denier.
Except for the very fact that science isn’t fixed. The very nature of science is to question everything, including itself. And to question the answers one gets to see if they hold true and for how long.
I question the ads for medications.
I question the medication.
And I always ask. Is this medication right for me?
And so should you.
