Rockefeller Foundation Funding Behavioral Scientists to Create Vaccination Narratives

The Rockefeller Foundation and several other globalist nonprofit organizations are pumping millions of dollars into funding a group of behavioral scientists tasked with creating new and more convincing narratives to drive COVID-19 vaccinations.

The behavioral science project is being funded to figure out why large numbers of people around the world refuse to take the jab and to develop ways to convince them to change their minds.

The “Mercury Project” is a collective of behavioral scientists formed by the Social Science Research Council (SSRC).

SSRC is a non-profit group that receives considerable funding from the Rockefeller Foundation and other globalist organizations and governments.

The Rockefeller Foundation was founded by the notorious Rockefeller family and is currently led by former Obama administration official Dr. Rajiv J. Shah.

The stated goals of the “Mercury Project” are rather non-specific, using ambiguous language and mission statements.

However, the root intentions appear to be focused on using behavioral psychology.

The research seems to be based on mass psychology elements that seek to better understand the global resistance to the recent COVID-19 vaccine compliance efforts.

Mercury groups will be deployed in multiple nations and regions.

The groups will study vaccine refusal and the so-called medical “disinformation” that allegedly leads to it.

They are operating with the intent to tailor vaccination narratives to fit different ethnic and political backgrounds.

Researchers are looking for the key to the gates of each cultural kingdom so they can convince the entire global population to take the jab.

The Rockefeller Foundation and the SSRC note:

“Following the characterization of inaccurate health information by the U.S. Surgeon General as an ‘urgent threat,’ and by the World Health Organization as an ‘infodemic,’ the SSRC issued a call for proposals to counter the growing global threats posed by public health mis- and disinformation and low Covid-19 vaccination rates, and received nearly 200 submissions from around the world.

“…With Covid-19 prevalent and rapidly evolving everywhere, there is a pressing need to identify interventions with the potential to increase vaccination take-up.”

The SSRC and the Mercury Project are not only receiving funding from foundations but also from taxpayer funds via government-based institutions.

In June of 2022, the Mercury Project received another $20 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

NSF claims to be an “independent” agency of the United States government.

The huge payment suggests that manufacturing effective propaganda is becoming a lucrative industry for the small groups of behavioral researchers and psychologists that jump on board.

The purpose of the NSF partnership with the Mercury Project is outlined on the SSRC website:

“This innovative partnership will support research teams seeking to evaluate online or offline interventions to increase Covid-19 vaccination demand and other positive health behaviors, including by targeting the producers and/or consumers of inaccurate health information and/or by increasing confidence in reliable health information.”

The Mercury Project lists these bullet points as their focus:

Funded projects will provide evidence about what works–and doesn’t–in specific places and for specific groups to increase Covid-19 vaccination take-up, including what is feasible on the ground and has the potential to be cost-effective at scale.

Each of the 12 teams will have access to findings from the other teams while exploring interventions including, but not limited to:

Conducting literacy training for secondary school students in partnership with local authorities to help students identify Covid-19 vaccine misinformation.

Equipping trusted messengers with communication strategies to increase Covid-19 vaccination demand.

Using social networks to share tailored, community-developed messaging to increase Covid-19 vaccination demand.

The bullet points suggest that their focus is propaganda.

Why the Mercury Project feels the need to compose vaccine propaganda for a virus with a mere 0.23% median Infection Fatality Rate is not explained.

And, if vaccination numbers from agencies like the CDC are accurate, then the population has already achieved herd immunity.

Rather than in the name of science, Mercury Project’s purpose seems to be more about influencing people to vaccinate despite the science.
