Was Smallpox Vaccine Really A Great Success?

The use of vaccines to prevent and eradicate diseases like smallpox is supposedly one of the great successes of modern medicine.
The Philippine Islands provide us with the most striking information on record that with much vaccination there is also much smallpox. Since the taking of the islands by the U.S., every attention had been paid to the perfecting of sanitation. But not content with this, their Public Health Service has seen to the thorough systematic vaccination of the population, adding thereto a considerable amount of serum inoculation.
An American paper published in 1922 reported "The Philippines have experienced three smallpox epidemics since the U.S. took over the Islands, the first in 1905-06, the second in 1907-08, and the third and worst of all in 1918-19.
Before 1905 (with no general vaccination) the case-mortality was about 10%. In the 1905-06 epidemic, with vaccination well started, the case-mortality ranged from 25-50%. During the epidemic of 1918-19, with the Philippines supposedly almost universally immunized against smallpox by vaccination, the case-mortality averaged over 65%!
These figures can be verified by reference to the Report of the Philippine Health Service. The statements are accompanied by, "The mortality is hardly explainable." To anyone but a Philippine Medical Health Commissioner, it is plainly the result of vaccination. The highest percentage of mortality, 65.3%, was in Manila, the most thoroughly vaccinated place in the Islands; the lowest percentage of mortality, 11.4%, was in Mindanao, where, owing to religious prejudices of the inhabitants, vaccination had not been practiced as much as in most other parts of the Islands.
Vaccination had been forced on Mindanao since 1918 in the face of this direct proof that their people were safer without it, and with the result of a smallpox mortality increase to above 25% in 1920. In view of the fact that sanitary engineers had probably done more in Manila to clean up the city and make it healthier than in any other part of the islands, vaccination actually brought on the smallpox epidemic in spite of the sanitary measures taken to promote health. It is certain that over ten million vaccinations for smallpox were performed in the Philippines from 1905 to 1917.
In England and Wales, free vaccination was provided for smallpox in 1840, made compulsory in 1853, and in 1867 orders were given to prosecute evaders, therefore, few escaped vaccination. Deaths from smallpox in England and Wales during 1857-59 was recorded at 14,244; in 1863-65, 20,059; and 1870-72, 44,840.
Between the 1st and 2nd epidemic, there was only a 7% increase in population with an increase of smallpox deaths by 40.8%. During the 2nd and 3rd epidemic a 9% increase of population with an increase of smallpox deaths of 123% with an ever-multiplying number of vaccinations! Deaths per year from cancer in England and Wales between 1857-72 also began to rapidly increase.
Professor of the Athenian Faculty of Medicine, Leon Grigorski said "We are ourselves creating the diseases, and we are heading toward general cancerization and mental defectives through encephalitis, by the use of vaccines." Upon limiting access to information the medical-industrial complex is able to maintain its authority mystique.
Isolation is a well-known technique of brainwashing. Choices that challenge the position of the authority are limited and often times hidden. Because the intellect learns by comparison, when it is presented with only one point of view or other points of view are denigrated, it loses its capacity to discriminate and ultimately its capacity for fully rational thought.
