Governments Cannot Effectively Regulate Vaccines

It’s theoretically impossible for government to regulate vaccines effectively.

To see why, consider the following thought experiment: Imagine you were an expert employed somewhere in the government’s sprawling healthcare apparatus, and further imagine that you received incontrovertible evidence that every single person who took the covid vaccines would die as a result of those vaccines at some point in the next five years.

First, notice that I’ve loaded this experiment in favor of the government. There’s no such thing as dispositive evidence on such complex issues, and there’s no such thing as 100 percent fatal vaccines (after all, if nothing else, somebody would die of something else while waiting to die from the vaccine).

Well, what could you do with that information? Nothing. After all, who’s going to risk their career over something as trivial as massive deaths? If government workers were inclined to risk their careers to save lives, we’d have far fewer wars.

But let us assume you’re willing to take that risk. So what? How would you make your voice heard? After all, lots and lots of experts came forward with dire warnings about those vaccines, so why would your efforts be any more successful than their efforts? Put another way, you could—quite reasonably—argue that those experts failed because they were wrong, but how could you—our hypothetical whistleblower—know that you’re right AND that you would succeed merely because you’re right? Surely, even the most naïve person cannot believe that truth and justice always prevail, so everyone must admit that even if you were right, you’d be taking a terrible risk.

But there’s another problem: Would you personally benefit from preventing the disaster or allowing it to transpire? If these vaccines proved disastrous, what would be the response? Well, obviously, a massive expansion of government power in order to remedy whatever “market failure” caused this disaster. How long would it take for fans of big government to realize the problem was the private sector’s involvement in the development and approval process? How long until some massive bipartisan bill invested billions in creating new levels of bureaucracy to ensure the next vaccine was safe and effective?

Remember the housing crisis? Rarely, if ever, has there been a more clear and more obvious government failure, and yet one is considered delusional for blaming the government for that crisis. Instead, we created vast new bureaucracies to administer thousands of new regulations to “fix” the private sector’s “failures.” Now it’s conventional wisdom that the housing crisis “proves” that markets can’t work.

Wouldn’t millions of dead people “prove” that markets can’t respond to pandemics? Wouldn’t some new government agency, like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), that’s almost entirely immune from political oversight “fix” these problems? Wouldn’t some Dodd-Frank for pharma do wonders, ensuring no more vaccine failures?

That is, government always benefits from government’s failures, which are invariably cited as proof that more government is needed. If World War I doesn’t end all wars, surely World War II will. If Fannie and Freddie and a million other interventions can’t fix the housing crisis, then surely CFPB will. If central banking causes the Great Depression, then surely more central banking will fix the market’s supposed propensity for causing great depressions—a propensity that curiously enough had never actually caused a great depression prior to central banking.

I could go on, but this point should be obvious to any reasonable person: government has no reason whatsoever to prevent its own failures. If these vaccines kill everybody, that’s great for them—another reason to expand their power.

This means that they simply cannot regulate vaccines effectively. Indeed, they can’t regulate anything effectively. If we really wanted regulations to work, we’d need them to be created and administered by people who had skin in the game.

If, for example, vaccine manufacturers had to pay for every injury or side effect and were required to have insurance for such losses, then they and their insurance companies would ensure that vaccines were safe and effective. But the moment you introduce a third party who suffers no consequences for its failures, you ensure the system cannot work.

Let me illustrate the point by analogy. Imagine a football team for which the coach cannot be fired no matter what. How do you think that team would perform? No one would suggest such a system, but that’s precisely what government is—a coach who cannot be fired. In theory, the coach “regulates” the team, but in practice, the coach does not and cannot fulfill that function because she has no reason to do so and every reason to fail.

Does any of this prove that covid vaccines are unsafe or ineffective? No, but it does prove that government regulation doesn’t ensure that vaccines—or anything, really—is safe or effective. If regulations work, it’s merely by chance because this tool (government) simply cannot do what it’s being asked to do.

If you want to argue that government workers are brave altruists who will do the right thing at great cost and risk to themselves merely because it is the right thing, then I have to wonder why you think government is necessary at all. As James Madison wrote, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.” And why would such people congregate in government? How would they get power? How would they keep it?

Government, even in theory, has a massive adverse selection problem in which the unscrupulous tend to garner more power than the ethical, so how could a system that depends on angels controlling the government ever work?

Of all the things we ask government to do, regulating vaccines must be the task to which the government is most ridiculously ill suited as it requires government “experts” to understand the most difficult questions in science and to question the results at great personal risk and cost to themselves. To think that they will do that on any consistent basis is farcical.

    Personal summary of simple, green and practical course to alleviate side effects of COVID-19 vaccine V2.0
    Eat 10 oranges or blood oranges at 4pm (the time can be adjusted freely), and then run barefoot on the ground for an hour after half an hour.

    Attachment: A. It has been proved through personal experience that eating a lot of oranges, blood oranges or raw tomatoes can effectively alleviate the side effects of COVID-19 vaccine.
    The reasons why these three fruits can alleviate the side effects of a vaccine are:
    1. Eating foods with high vibration frequency can help the body detoxify, while fresh fruits and vegetables have the highest vibration frequency of all foods (about 6500~10000).
    2. a. These three fruits all contain high content of natural vitamin C, which can partially clean up the dirty blood produced by the COVID-19 vaccine;
    b. Blood orange and tomato contain glutathione, which can partially degrade graphene oxide;
    c. Blood orange is the only citrus fruit containing anthocyanin, which has the function of super antioxidant and scavenging free radicals.
    3. There are a lot of clean+natural water in these three kinds of fruits, which are perfectly combined with various vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Eating them can immediately purify the blood. Eating fruits with relatively low water content, such as apples and bananas, may need to drink water alone. Now other water sources may not be as clean as before, and drinking too much may be detrimental to blood purification.

    B. “Run fast for a long time” is the best body detoxification exercise. The heart pumping blood with high intensity for a long time can accelerate the elimination of heavy metals in the body. In addition, the detoxification speed of jogging, push-ups and squats is far less than that of “Run fast for a long time”.
    C. It has been proved by practical tests that the radiation entering the body can be reset to zero within one second after the feet are grounded, and the activity of nano-graphite can be reduced.
    D. Running can also be replaced by running in place, but it is not recommended personally.
    E. If you can make Gans products (relevant production methods:,, you can try to wear Gans patches, Gans belly pockets and Gans hats for running.
