The advent of the so-called “anti-Covid vaccines” was marked by the largest institutional fraud in history to the detriment of informed consent: a fraud made easier and more disturbing by the power that finance and politics wield today in the world of global communication. This fraud triggered a time of unprecedented violence, hatred, and persecution against all those who expressed doubts, sought the truth, and never tired of defending their freedom. The schizophrenic and almost demonic paradox of this campaign of hatred and violence is that it was carried out under the banner of terms such as “love” or “civic duty,” now devoid of any meaning other than the demagogic use (typical of totalitarian systems) of the terminology of good to carry out evil policies. Transforming good into evil and evil into good is the most the devil could wish for; it is his greater enjoyment. For those who believe, it is easy to see the devil’s hand in these times.
Vaccination as an Act of Love? retraces the foundations of the analysis of the moral act to rediscover what it means to do good or evil both in the Christian tradition and in that of Western thought. The ethical choice presupposes adequate knowledge of all the relevant factors of the action. The book focuses on the definition of “anti-Covid vaccine” as a possible object of choice (individual or collective) and on the reasons that can generate doubts and uncertainties about it. Di Blasi’s methodology starts from primary sources, from documents of authorization agencies such as the FDA and EMA. The epistemology of the vaccines and the science that characterizes them are explained in the context of their legal authorizations and of the issues arising from them. The book is also an excellent source for those who want to retrace the salient features of the history of these vaccines and fully understand their political and institutional significance. Noteworthy are the chapters devoted to the AstraZeneca case, the approval of the Pfizer vaccine, the change in the definition of “vaccine” or the sense of legal immunity guaranteed to pharmaceutical companies and healthcare professionals.
