    In a recent article in the Spectator Australia Lincoln Brown reports on a strange medical phenomenon that allegedly has doctors baffled, the so-called Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), which has claimed the lives of healthy young adults, often in their sleep, with post mortem examinations failing to reveal any adequate cause.[2]  Details are exposed in an article by Frank Chung in a report dated June 8th, 2022.[3]


It was just over a year ago (7th June 2021) that a 40 year old Filipino who had studied for the priesthood at the Holy Cross seminary of the Society of St Pius X near Goulburn in New South Wales, Fr Daniel Yagan, died suddenly in his room in the SSPX priory in Manilla.  Fr Yagan had health problems including a heart condition but according to Society reports the pneumonia to which his death was attributed was not “a condition the doctors… deem[ed] to be serious”.  He had not tested positive for the SARS-Cov-2 virus.


In the March following Australians were shocked to hear that a favourite son, the former cricketer Shane Warne, and the country’s Labor Party Senator Kimberly Kitching had died suddenly within a week of each other.  Both were 52 years old.  


These three are but more notable instances, it would seem, of the syndrome.  Have the three anything in common, anything that might indicate a common cause?  Yes.  Each had been vaccinated with one or other of the experimental vaccines offered, and then mandated by governments and their health bureaucracies, as providing protection against the effects of the SARS-Cov-2 virus.



The problem for those who would seek to establish that these ‘vaccines’ are responsible for SADS is the narrative or, as I prefer to call it, ‘the legend’, that reflects the atheistic zeitgeist from which the country suffers.  Its burden was well expressed by the Spectator Australia’s Rebecca Weisser—

“The taboo consideration that cannot be raised in polite company is the Covid mass vaccination program.  It is an article of faith that the vaccine is ‘safe and effective’ and to raise a scintilla of doubt is anathema, punishable by excommunication…”[4]

The obsession with artificial means of addressing the virus (‘vaccination’) at the expense of the natural one available to all, natural immunity, is a symptom of the zeitgeist.  It seeks to suppress reliance on the natural order in favour of artificial solutions at every turn.

The evidence is overwhelming that these ‘vaccines’ were never properly tested and evaluated before being offered to the public.  They remain experimental.  Nor can the evidence be denied that their administration has precipitated an immense number of health problems.


Rebecca Weisser reports that Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration has recorded 133,000 adverse events, including 889 deaths, more than 140 heart attacks, 360 myocardial infarctions, 500 strokes, 1,400 cases of deep vein thrombosis and 1,500 pulmonary embolisms since the vaccination program began on 22nd February 2021.[5]  Friends of the writer say they know of 24 people who have died since the virus erupted; two only from the virus, the remaining 22 as a result of administration of the vaccines. 


The narrative, or legend, that dominates people’s thinking is an effect of the philosophical (and logical) error of subjectivism.  Its thesis is that truth is determined by opinion.  One of its corollaries is that it is impossible for a majority to be wrong.  It denies the value of rational debate and has hardened to the point where a view that departs from the narrative will be scorned, its adherents mocked.  Lincoln Brown puts the business in perspective—

“If we were approaching science objectively and rationally, it would be permissible to ask questions of vaccine manufacturers – even if only to rule them out, once and for all, as the culprit.” 


But self-interest on the part of the principals of the responsible drug companies (not to mention their shareholders), the hubris of the heads of governments who fell for ‘the narrative’, and the heads of the bureaucratic institutions who endorsed their use, aided and abetted by a compliant media and journalists who refrained from doing their job as independent investigators, militate against any admission that those responsible were in error in failing to approach the solutions offered with a critical mind.


There is a line in Chapter 29 of the Book of Proverbs (King James version) which summarises the dilemma: “Where there is no vision the people perish”.


And the people are perishing!
