Wiped Out and Dumbed Down: Vaccines and Structural Insanity

During his appearance on Zeitgeist: Moving Forward Gabor Maté discusses idealogies and how their uselessness can be harmful, and that rings very true with the information pharmacutical corporations and hospitals supply us with regarding the treatments they sell to us.

Flu season is just around the corner, and it typically stretches through the early spring. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recommending that everyone older than 6 months get their flu shot.
During the 2011-2012 flu season, 128 million people in the U.S., or 42 percent of the population, received a flu shot, according to the CDC. That's close to the 43 percent that were vaccinated the previous year.
CDC officials estimated flu vaccinations last year prevented 5 million cases of influenza, and 40,000 hospitalizations. 
(Taken from 6 Flu Vaccine Myths by Karen Rowan in LiveScience.)

Well, actually, in clinical trials, risks of hospitalization and wheezing were increased in children younger than 2 years of age who received FluMist (a vaccine indicated for active immunization for the prevention of influenza disease), caused by influenza A subtype viruses and the type B virus contained in the vaccine.
So the article opens with a series of empty statements. The statistics they cite come from tests paid for by the pharmaceutical companies promoting the drugs, so they may as well have opened with "We've done a lot of good shit. Take it from us." 
Notice that CDC crops up four times in the article, the credibility of official CDC approval is being milked to emphasize the credibility of the vaccination. Of course what does CDC get paid to do? Control and prevent disease, okay, so under what circumstances would the corporation stand to lose significant profit? It would stand to lose profit in a healthy society. So you could say, and would be right to say, that it is in the CDC's professional interest for people to be in demand of medicine. Outside of a monetary framework of reference, this would have no negative implications for society at large. However within our current socioeconomic system in which we have structural poverty it is inevitable that we will see an increasing inclination for cost-cutting, because no one wants to be at the bottom. 
This fear of being at the bottom has prevailed over generations, and along with the compound effects of inequality on people it has prevailed over morality and over science, and in many cases we have seen it hiding behind the disguise of morality or science.
Here for example, instead of studying the possibility of natural remedies or least sincerely conducting experiments into creating medicines, I'm seeing the opposite: an industry in which pharmaceutical companies earnestly guard their own grossly inflated financial wealth by haphazardly combining various chemical compounds and market them to a willing public after careless and more often than not inconclusive testing, resulting in a very sick population. It's not medicine, it's genocide.

In its 1968 yearly report, the Rockefeller Foundation acknowledged funding the development of so-called “anti-fertility vaccines” and their implementation on a mass-scale. Soon the Foundation’s efforts began to have effect. In its annual report of 1988, The RF happily reported the progress made by the Foundation’s Population Division in the field of anti-fertility vaccines:

“India’s National Institute of Immunology successfully completed in 1988 the first phase of trials with three versions of an anti-fertility vaccine for women. Sponsored by the government of India and supported by the Foundation, the trials established that with each of the tested vaccines, at least one year of protection against pregnancy could be expected, based on the levels of antibodies formed in response to the immunization schedule.”

And yet these institutions kick back in the glow of our blind trust, and the propaganda continues to become even more ridiculously, brazenly manipulative; "You would do anything to protect your baby," simper giant colourful posters plastered to the walls of the hospital where I am due to give birth.

A large-scale scientific study in approximately 50,000 pregnant women and their infants over five flu seasons found no difference in the risk for developing influenza illness among those who received the influenza vaccine during pregnancy and those who did not receive the vaccine. Reviews in the medical journal The Lancet found a lack of health benefit of influenza vaccine for children under two and significantly increased rates of vaccine-related adverse events in children. Now pregnant women are constantly told that high levels of mercury are potentially very damaging to our  fetus, but many seasonal influenza vaccines contain mercury, from the preservative thimerosal, in amounts exceeding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended safe levels.

Still pregnant women and mothers happily, willingly contaminate themselves and their children. What I'm talking about is a docile ignorance so complete that reality is severely distorted. 

you know?
Information isn't just restricted, it's tampered with. So the context with which one relates to reality is a fabrication, this is damaging to one's relationship with it. One's relationship with reality now grows inorganically, artificially, and that has extremely dangerous connotations, because one is continuously putting one's quality of life in unnecessary risk.
One doesn't have control over how one understands and interacts with one's environment. One's knowledge of what one perceives as harmful or beneficial to oneself and one's loved ones is based in misinformation.
'It is the work of the devil to pervert the word of the Lord." One has a situation in which one's reality is being perverted, a situation in which entire populations are being wiped out and dumbed down in a fervent insane rush towards the zombie apocalypse. It's almost Biblical. Poisoned crops, mutated children, plutocracy, institutional theft, structural classism and structural violence... All symptoms of our slavery, of our trauma, as a race. We don't know about free will, we're not understanding what's really going on. 

And until one asks oneself, What matters? 

That until that day / The dream of lasting peace, / World citizenship / Rule of international morality / Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, / But never attained.


  1. Thank you for alerting us to possible dangers about vaccination and medical misinformation. I, as I think many of us, more or less follow the “orders” of the doctor I have put my trust in, and don’t always think of asking what risks a certain medicine, vaccination or operation could engender.
    However, even after carefully reading your eye-opening blog and the link you’ve proposed, I still wouldn’t dismiss vaccinations as a whole.
    If it’s true that vaccinations can at times be damaging and sometimes useless, some vaccines have significantly reduced the spread of a few of the world’s major diseases. Smallpox has been completely eradicated (the last case of smallpox was in Somalia, in 1977) – now this was a disease that had once killed up to 35% of its victims and left others scarred or blind. Other diseases, like polio, have disappeared in some parts of the world (no more Polio in the US since 1979) and additional diseases are potentially eradicable: lymphatic filariasis (Elephantiasis), measles, mumps, rubella. While some diseases may not be life-threatening, others are, especially to the fetus, like rubella. A pregnant woman who catches rubella during the first 5 months of pregnancy can pass the disease on to her baby while it is in the womb. The chances of this happening are very high. In 8 out of 10 cases where a pregnant woman has rubella, the fetus will get rubella before it is born. If the fetus gets rubella during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it will be born with many problems. It may be blind, deaf or have heart damage. If the fetus gets rubella between 16 and 20 weeks of pregnancy, it will be born deaf. 1 out of 10 babies who are born with rubella will die during the first 12 months of life. There is no treatment for rubella in babies. The damage that happens to the fetus will last for the child's whole life. Why would one take that risk?
    Of course, the rubella vaccine is just one example, while there are many vaccines not worth having -- it would be good to seek the advice of a competent and honest doctor. And keep a critical mind towards anything proposed, as the author of this blog, evidently has.

  2. I disagree with you, in my opinion seeking the advice of a "competent and honest doctor" is second to developing one's own understanding. How many doctors are going to read the fine print?
    Since you bring up the rubella vaccine, or MMR, I looked into developing my own understanding of it.

    Principal studies published in the American Journal of Diseases of Children and the American Journal of Epidemiology, reveal that the rubella strain of vaccination was cultured from an aborted human fetus. In addition, the growth medium for the three live viruses that are needed to produce the MMR vaccine is a buffered salt solution "supplemented with fetal bovine serum. Traces of mercury have been detected.

    did you know that reinfection with rubella may occur in as many as 80% of vaccinated subjects?

    The following afflictions affecting nearly every body system -- blood, lymphatic, digestive, cardiovascular, immune, nervous, respiratory, and sensory -- have been reported following receipt of the MMR shot: encephalitis, encephalopathy, neurological disorders, seizure disorders, convulsions, learning disabilities, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), demyelination of the nerve sheaths, Guillain-Barre' syndrome (paralysis), muscle incoordination, deafness, panniculitis, vasculitis, optic neuritis (including partial or total blindness), retinitis, otitis media, bronchial spasms, fever, headache, joint pain, arthritis (acute and chronic), transverse myelitis, thrombocytopenia (blood clotting disorders and spontaneous bleeding), anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions), lymphadenopathy, leukocytosis, pneumonitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, erythema multiforme, urticaria, pancreatitis, parotitis, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, meningitis, diabetes, autism, immune system disorders, and death.

  3. ...
    In 1998 Lancet published a landmark study by Dr. Andrew Wakefield linking the onset of autistic symptoms to the MMR vaccine.(21) Wakefield and his world-class team of medical experts investigated previously normal children who subsequently suffered from intestinal abnormalities and regressive developmental disorder, including a loss of acquired skills. In most cases, "onset of symptoms was after measles, mumps, and rubella immunization."

    Since the 1960s, reports have shown that between 10 and 40 percent of women who previously had no immunity to rubella experience joint disorders after immunization that can cause pain in joints such as the ankles and knees. RA27/3 rubella vaccine given to seronegative women during the postpartum period was significantly associated with development of acute arthralgia or arthritis. It has been assosciated with chronic fatigue.

    You also mention the Polio vaccination? Oral, live-virus vaccine (OPV) can cause polio in vaccine recipients and contacts. It has caused Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) in recipients. It may also contain live monkey viruses that have been associated with human diseases. The oral vaccine is no longer recommended in the U.S.

    Killed polio vaccine (IPV) has also caused significant effects, including cancers from a contaminated vaccine, but is not known to cause polio in recipients.

    Ingredients include calf serum protein and monkey kidney tissue.

    Finally, it's naive to believe the medical cartel are looking for the truth regarding MMR and autism. If they were they would be throwing money at the scientists actually studying the children such as Wakefield, not producing fraudulent epidemiology studies to order. The consequences of vaccines such as MMR and the mercury ones being the main cause of autism would be devastating to the drug industry (we have 500,000 people with Autistic spectrum disorders in the UK alone), and could cause the collapse of the pharmaceutical industry which is just a house of cards anyway. Consequently the thousands of parents who have witnessed their children develop autism after vaccination have to be ignored, along with studies done by Dan Olmsted, and the scientific evidence proving MMR causes autism, while Wakefield is smeared through the media, and others subject to a witch hunt.

    I think the real question is, why would one consider these injections to be less risky than maintaining a healthy diet and personal hygiene and warmth? And the answer is fear, and ignorance... *see blog above*

    Some websites you may find useful: (includes unsolicited adverse reaction reports from parents, towards the bottom) (a 6 minute presentation on the MMR vaccine) (Italian Court of Rimini MMR autism case) (Parent's Voice... moving. Worth a read if you can manage not to choke up.) (on polio)

  4. Also I appreciate sharing information with you, but I feel like you are missing my point in your comment; I'm not just alerting you to the possible dangers of vaccines, I'm talking about our complete absence of control in our interaction with reality, as a result of, among other things, seeking advice when we should be seeking knowledge.
    Anyways like I said I am happy to exchange data re: vaccines, let me know when you've had a look at those sites and what you think of them, especially the Parent's Voice one
