Why vaccine trials weren't responsible 'science' – not even close

Why vaccine trials weren't responsible 'science' – not even close
Jane M. Orient, M.D.: 'There is virtually NO control group for potential late adverse consequences'

Science has undergone a radical metamorphosis. People with M.D. or Ph.D. degrees, who have published hundreds of papers in the scientific literature, have suddenly become "anti-science" – as judged by media personalities, politicians, bureaucrats and fact-checkers. What does this mean? One clue: chief White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci, M.D, said that anyone who attacked him was attacking "science."

Anyone skeptical of the accepted COVID narrative may be called "anti-science." The articles of faith are that it is an existential threat, and the only solution is universal vaccination and surrender of our freedom to work, assemble, worship, travel, or even go outdoors without the approval of public health authorities.

One key feature of science that we should have learned in grade school seems to have been forgotten, albeit selectively: Experiments need to have a control group.
