Is the Swine Flu Vaccine Harmful?

This article contained some interesting bits on the Swine flu vaccine.

#5 - Even if the swine flu vaccine kills you, the drug companies aren't responsible. The U.S. government has granted drug companies complete immunity against vaccine product liability. Thanks to that blanket immunity, drug companies have no incentive to make safe vaccines, because they only get paid based on quantity, not safety (zero liability).
That's interesting. Drug corporation executives have absolutely zero liability if they sell a vaccine later proven to be harmful. It's an explicit State-granted perk. If you get a vaccine and are hurt from the vaccine, you're legally barred from suing the vaccine manufacturer.
I probably don't need to remind you that in 1976, a failed swine flu vaccine caused irreparable damage to the nervous systems of hundreds of people, paralyzing many. Medical doctors gave the problem a name, of course, to make it sound like they knew what they were talking about: Guillain-Barre syndrome. (Notably, they never called it "Toxic Vaccine Syndrome" because that would be too informative.)
That's amusing. You give a disease a fancy name "Guillain-Barre Syndrome" rather than "Toxic Vaccine Syndrome". Similarly, "Swine Flu" is a much scarier name than "Flu variant 2009-d".

Your body's natural immune system is more effective than a vaccine. Swine flu isn't fatal in otherwise healthy adults. Like any drug or medical treatment, a swine flu vaccine may have negative side effects.

For diseases like smallpox and polio, a vaccine was genuinely helpful. Now, the tendency is to give a vaccine for every minor illness. For non-serious illnesses, you're better of just getting sick and recovering normally. This strengthens your body's natural immune system.

Is this a natural free market phenomenon? Or, is it State violence combined with mainstream media generated hype? The mainstream media says "OMFG!! Swine Flu!!" Then, laws are passed making the vaccine mandatory. Drug company executives profit from the hype.

For swine flu, there's a clear answer to the question "Who is profiting?" The entire swine flu scare seems designed to facilitate profits for pharmaceutical corporations. People are scared into getting the vaccine. Further, laws are passed making the vaccine mandatory.

FSK, take up jogging or something active outside. It's good for your physical health, and it will give you a break from your parents.
