Book Review: The Day the Science Died by Patrick D. Hahn
Reviewed by Mira de Vries, MeTZelf
It could have been called “A History of the Covid Pandemic” as the events are presented in chronological order with the exception of one flashback section.
Hahn does not deny that Covid exists, as do Cowan & Fallon Morell, nor does he deny that there was a pandemic, as do Reiss & Bhakdi. On the contrary, he gives a detailed explanation of how the Covid virus infects people. This part is too far above my head for me to judge whether it is plausible. But I do understand his explanation of why the Covid jab is not a real vaccine. He calls it “gene therapy.” I would have advised him to change the term to “gene alteration” as therapy implies the presence of a disorder to be remediated, whereas the Covid jab is intended for people who are either perfectly healthy or at least do not have Covid.
He mentions the Virus Institute in Wuhan only once, briefly wisely not stating that this is where the virus was created as there is no way of proving that. His other statements, such as that the jab is ineffective and harmful, he backs up with sources from the medical literature itself, to be distinguished from public relations speeches. The illusion that the Covid shot is effective, he points out, was created by not counting Covid contracted within the first weeks after the injection, whereas the research shows that during this period, the risk is actually higher than among the non-vaxxed. This is to be found in the data that was concealed from the public.
Like other authors, Hahn maintains that fear was used to strong-arm entire nations into submitting to the jab. The main motive was profit. He points out that of the three manufacturers, one, Pfizer, has a long history of bringing ineffective and dangerous drugs to market by employing deceitful science. That is what the flashback is about. The other two, Moderna and BioNTech, have no such history for the simple reason that the so-called Covid vaccine is the first product they ever produced.
Other authors stress the role of ultra-wealthy social media platform owners whose names have become household words in suppressing doubt and dissent about the official pandemic narrative. Those owners have large portions of their obscene capital tied up in the pharmaceutical industry. Hahn, however, seems to blame the censorship more on the government that pressured the platform owners.
It pleases me to see that Hahn repeatedly mentions my pet peeve: We really cannot know the effects of any anti-Covid measures, whether jabs, masking, “anti-social” (his term) distancing or whatever, because we have no control groups.
Hahn’s well-researched book is a welcome addition to the previously published literature critical of the official Covid narrative. His arguments are consistently logical and devoid of the rancorous name-calling that mars other books on this subject.
The following quote just about sums it up:
Power no longer comes from land tenure. It doesn’t even come from owning a factory. It comes from manipulating the language of science, and the appearance of science, in order to control people.
