Today's pandemic response is eerily similar to the smallpox pandemic response

This insight comes from one of my readers, A Midwestern Doctor who Writes A’s Newsletter (which was just launched 3 hours ago).

I wanted to share it with all of you because what happened over 135 years ago is very similar to what is happening now.

The solution then was not trying to convince decision makers using rational scientific arguments. It was a mass public protest that resulted in the abandonment of what the “experts” were saying to do and adoption of new methods that worked that were opposed by the medical community.

Here’s what A Midwestern Doctor wrote in the comments of my last article:

What is currently happening with the COVID mandates and protests is nearly identical to what happened 135 years ago with the smallpox vaccine campaigns, where the vaccination made smallpox epidemics worse, the vaccines killed a lot of people, the public refused them and governments responded by harsher and harsher mandatory vaccination laws.
