Do you know how many people have been killed worldwide by their governments from the COVID shots?

Based on my own research, other sources, and following Kirsch’s work, I would say ~12 million is a very good ballpark guess. As one of my mentors used to say, “better to be loosely correct than precisely incorrect.” When I have in depth conversations with people, I will sometimes ask, “How many people have to die before it is worth talking about and sharing with those you care about?” What is your criteria?

Steve Kirsch: “It’s around 12M. That is 40X the number of Americans who were killed in World War II. It’s more than double the number killed by COVID.”
