I received an email today from a woman claiming to be a pharmacist (there was no last name or sig file). I had mentioned vaccines and their positive impact already in my Monday Morning Memo.
She informed me that, since I’m not in the medical community but she is, that I ought to know that the vaccines have proved to be deadly, there are thousands of lawsuits over thousands of deaths directly attributed to the vaccines, and that entire countries have stopped vaccinating people. I won’t go on, you get the idea.
What do you do with people who are that paranoid? Who see deep, hidden conspiracies behind every tree? Who think the government, which can’t hide its own military secrets, can keep secret these vast catastrophes?
Is the real crisis in this country—beyond mass shootings, polarization, immigration, and political extremism—really mental illness?
