In-doctor-ination, mandatory vaccination, and the logic of trusting medical “experts”
Is it just me or are “free countries” like the US and Australia increasingly suffering from epidemics of human complacency, gullibility, and laziness?
These are the traits that breed tyranny in all its “glory.” In the realm of medicine, placing inordinate amounts of trust in designated “experts” is one symptom of our collective complacency. Most people seem to prefer to outsource our intelligence and capacity for critical thought to someone else, someone we’ve been conditioned to trust.
For example: “We asked an expert what would happen if no one got vaccinated and this is what they said, etc., etc.”
Asking “an expert” in this kind of context is an appeal to authority, a basic logical fallacy.
It’s a very appealing way out of actually investigating a subject in depth and thinking for oneself (appealing for some people, that is). Appealing to the authority of an “expert” is just too tempting for many chemically-addled humans at this point.
Why painstakingly develop your own sophisticated viewpoint when you can just parrot what an “expert” has pronounced from on high without a second thought? They must know what they’re talking about, right? Why else would they be appearing on TV or radio as an “expert”?
Instead of placing all of your faith in someone promoted as an “expert,” how about something like this:
I investigated for myself and assessed the merits of arguments put forward by MANY “experts”, I learned HISTORY, I read scientific papers, studied clinical evidence and the testimony of endless insiders/whistleblowers, I listened to thousands of bereaved parents, investigated the Vaccine Injury Compensation Payouts ($3.5 billion and counting) and how hard it is to actually achieve justice, I studied the politics of medicine and vaccination (as well as human psychology), I weighed the evidence from all angles, and reached logical conclusions based on said evidence — far too much to get into in a short blog post.
But don’t worry, I’m sure your single “expert” knows what’s going on and should be completely blindly trusted, just like a Catholic would trust the Pope.
Vaccines, historically, were NEVER crucial in protecting ANY form of society, “developed” or otherwise. The idea of vaccines is to simulate the natural immunity acquired by a community’s contact with a disease — the evidence that vaccines work as advertised is, pardon my French, piss poor. Historians know that sanitation, hygiene, quarantine, water filtration, and better nutrition are to thank for the eradication and/or control of diseases and the reductions in mortality. All of the major reductions in disease mortality happened BEFORE vaccines were introduced as a result of these methods and interventions in living conditions, and moreover, there were some diseases whose mortality rates dropped in parallel and yet there was no vaccine even developed for them! What? You mean to say that vaccines have been given undue credit? Oh yes, absolutely.
In reality, vaccines succeeded in creating a raft of new diseases and harm(encephalitis, paralysis, developmental delays, autoimmunity, geneti...),
