Medical Tyranny is Here, and we can’t say we weren’t warned

Old-Thinker News | Nov 27, 2012

By Daniel Taylor

Health care reform is a hot topic today, as it has been for much of America’s history. Benjamin Rush, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, warned in 1787 that medical freedom needed to be included in the American Constitution. Without this protection, Rush warned that the medical establishment would naturally progress – as many of mankind’s institutions do – into an oppressive dictatorship. His words, echoing from over 200 years ago, ring strikingly true today:

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic. … Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who wish doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”**

The spirit of managerial scientific control that drives this beast is summarized in the words of Frederick Taylor, a pioneer in “scientific management.” As Taylor stated in 1907, “Too great liberty results in a large number of people going wrong who would be right if they had been forced into good habits.” This spirit of quasi-altruistic scientific control begins to fade away towards the higher ranks of the system, however.

The potential for medical tyranny that Benjamin Rush perceived over 200 years ago crystallized when the Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations transformed the American medical establishment in the early 20th Century. They strove to create a system of schooling to manufacture a predictable, rule following group of professionals to enforce the establishment regulations. Additionally, tax exempt foundations – through their grant making power – are able to mold the idea-sphere from which medical research emerges, or is suppressed.

The dictatorial health care model as expressed by “obamacare” is being implemented as part of a larger global program. The World Health Organization announced recently that it hopes to implement – via a U.N. resolution – “universal health coverage” across the globe in fulfillment of its Millennium Development Goals. The Rockefeller Foundation is working with WHO in the project. “There is a global movement towards UHC (Universal Health Care) and it is gathering momentum,” said Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation.

If you don’t want the kind of care that the allopathic establishment prescribes, be prepared to face the consequences.

A Minnesota mother was recently brought to court over refusing chemotherapy for her 8 year old daughter. A doctor apparently reported her to CPS. She was “…ordered into court and told if they did not work with them on a treatment plan, they would lose custody of Sarah.”

Another case involved a Pennsylvania mother who declined to vaccinate her child, resulting in a visit from CPS. 

A 2009 case in which a 13 year old boy’s parents refused chemo resulted in a judgement of “medical neglect,” denying the right of his parents to refuse treatment on religious grounds.

The bottom line is this: Even if the medical establishment had our best interests at heart, what happens when their science is wrong? What happens when it is skewed in favor of the corporations that are closely aligned with them? What kind of damage is done when it is universally enforced? Benjamin Rush foresaw this danger, and it is time to face it for the reality it has become.

**Comment from Old-Thinker News: It looks like this quote has been changed over time, but the spirit of the original quote has remained intact. The quote as cited in the Youngstown Vindicator (1911) reads: “Laws restricting the practice of the healing art to one class of physicians and denying equal privileges to others, constitutes the Bastille of Medicine, for they prevent progress. They are relics of Monarchy, and therefore have no place in a Republic.”

    Smoking is committing suicide. Period. My previous statement was erased.

  2. Ann Dabbas says:

    In juat plain English….smoking stinks. The smokers are commiting suicide slowly. That’s a sin. See the 10 Commandments where it says: Thou shall not kill. Every time you smoke you are killing yourself.

  3. C. Goodman Taylor says:

    Thankfully I’m old enough to not be around much longer to endure all of this. This healthcare program essentially turns everyone into slaves of the state. If they can get away with this one, they will be able to do anything they want with you and to you. Again, thankfully my time is relatively short. If I get deathly ill, I’ll get under my own blanket and die quietly and alone, from natural, not induced, causes.

  4. pinocchio says:

    What is wrong with smoking on a balcony?? Park?? Beach???

    It is a very difficult habit to break. If they were interested in improving everyone’s health, they would be teaching substitution for the smoking behavior. Telling the person no smoking anywhere is like removing the debt ceiling. The smoking is a subsistute for something else they are trying to suppress.

    Use common sense. Let him who is without a bad habit cast the first stone.

    What a bunch of idiot fear mongering about the new health care.
    Everybody should have healthcare insurance, you never know what can happen to you,
    whether it is from a serious life threatening disease or car accident.
    A one payment plan for all is the best, so everybody pays its fair share, according to your income,
    no free riders, so that the rest have to pay for them.
    Eat right, stop smoking, use alcohol in moderation. Don’t get obese, you will later suffer the consequences , losing limbs or eye sight.
    Have seen it all from loved ones, losing limbs, eyesight, throat cancer due to smoking.
    Keep on being in denial. Don’t abuse medications, taking to much so you get a stomach bleeding
    That you die from blood loss or get a killing heart attack from it.

  6. Incriminally Sane says:

    The medical tyranny is about having the power “Legally” to kill people! The beginning of this was the state sponsored murder of Terri Schaivo from southern Florida which provided a precedent for the Federal Government to start a program to kill people through the medical establishment that has 90% of Americans mesmerized through trickery and propaganda who believe the medical industry can do no wrong……WRONG! More than 290 Americans die EACH DAY from the medical industry and nobody seems to notice and nobody seems to care because they have this appearance of being all mighty and can only help when, in truth, quite the opposite holds true, the medical establishment is deeply involved in the Eugenics industry which is supported by the UN and the World Health Organization and Terri Schaivo was the test case that supported the open engagement of murder through the medical industry BECAUSE NOBODY COMPLAINED!
    So, through your refusal to stand up for the state sponsored murder of Terri, you essentially consented to this practice and the Government took your inaction as consent and now you have Obamacare which will accelerate the state sponsored murder exponentially all across America.

    Abinico, sound familiar? Sounds like the like minded. Interesting is that the quote above is from an anti-tobacco billboard (photo circa 1915) on the road leading into Zion, Illinois, USA. When considering the sentiments appearing on the billboard, it must be remembered that this was many, many decades before the concoction of secondhand smoke “danger”. Zion City was a “utopian” community established in the early-1900s by John Alexander Dowie representing a so-called (questionable) “Christian” sect (Christian Catholic Church). Tobacco, alcohol, and gambling were banned within Zion.

    Serious, dangerous fanaticism/extremism was rife in America right up to WWII. The Temperance (religious leanings) and Eugenics (physicians, physicalists) Movements, both having dictatorial tendencies and a delusional emphasis on and obsession with physical health, wreaked considerable damage in America.
    The EM was by far the most influential in America and eventually produced catastrophe in Nazi Germany with global consequences. The Temperance and Eugenics Movements shared the anti-tobacco sentiments in the quote above. While they attempted to change society with destructive consequences, Dowie chose to create his own “protected” community.

    Cindy, notwithstanding, what do you make of outdoor smoking bans on entire university/hospital campuses or large tracts of land such as parks and beaches. Many of the bans are for all tobacco products, most not involving smoke at all.

    ……

    Cindy, what about employment bans on smokers? They were also seen early last century in America (see Dillow, 1981), and for very bizarre reasons. You can also see Henry Ford’s “The Case Against The Little White Slaver”.

    Some background on Ford:

    http://www.henry-ford.org/

    ……

    More on Ford’s rabid antismoking (cigarette) mentality:

    “Ashtrays were offered at first only in luxury vehicles, but were standard in most cars by the 1920’s, David Lewis, a professor of business history at the University of Michigan, said. One holdout was Henry Ford, an anti-smoker who published a pamphlet in 1914 called “The Case Against the Little White Slaver.”

    Mr. Ford did not install ashtrays in his Model T. But he caved in by the 1930’s, though he advertised his lighters as “cigar lighters.” Cigars were permissible because Mr. Ford’s hero, Thomas Edison, smoked them.”

    http://www.nytimes.com/1994/01/05/business/for-car-buyers-smoking-is-no-longer-standard.html

    ……

    Ford, and others of the megawealthy elite (e.g., Rockefeller, Carnegie), was also a supporter/funder of USA and Nazi eugenics. He is also known for penning the collection of anti-Semitic literature titled “The International Jew”:

    ……

    Ford also had a subsidiary in Nazi Germany manufacturing/supplying trucks to the Nazis:

    Cindy, I’ve provided much information in a number of posts. You claim you “disagree”. What? With all of it? What’s worrisome about your post is that your personal circumstance blinds you to the severe greater context issues raised in my comments.

    ……

    Remember, too, Cindy, that antismoking, including bans and attempted bans, has a 400 year history, much of it pre-dating the concoction of secondhand smoke “danger”.

  10. abinico says:

    Ass (you know who I mean) – you have no right to expose anyone to filthy, stinky, dirty habit of smoking. If you want to smoke, do so in your own home where you can fester in filth without affecting anyone else.

    • Observer says:

      Gotta say I agree, smoking is gross! I understand your points, Assistance, but even if it doesn’t give me cancer, I shouldn’t have to breathe in some foul substance in a public place.

  11. Assistance says:

    Have you ever been tested for an anxiety disorder – particularly concerning tobacco smoke? Do you know what somatization is? Inflammatory propaganda produces anxiety disorders in those who accept it as fact: Inflammatory propaganda is a constant play on fear. Typical symptoms of anxiety disorders are heart palpitations, shortness of breath, chest tightness, dry mouth, headache, dizziness, etc. If there is an anxiety disorder to ambient tobacco smoke, then, if the smoke is removed (i.e. through bans), the anxiety reactions disappear. But this has nothing to do with the physical propensities of tobacco smoke, but with an appeasing of the disorder.

    …….

    There are even those that now claim that they are “allergic” to tobacco smoke. Yet, there are no allergens (proteins) in tobacco smoke to be allergic to. Such people are most likely also suffering an anxiety disorder.

    ……

    Fear associated with potential danger messes with people’s thinking – some more than others. For example, let’s say we told people in a theater lobby that there was a suspected gas leak – although there is no gas leak – and for anyone smelling gas to report it to the desk. You can be sure that there will be a few people that will report smelling gas. Some might even exhibit symptoms (as indicated above), including fainting. Fear can even have people smelling and reacting to what is not there.

    ……

    If people can have anxiety reactions to something believed to be present although not present, then you can imagine the anxiety reactions to tobacco smoke where three decades of inflammatory propaganda has manufactured highly dilute ambient tobacco smoke on a par with a bio-weapon like, say, sarin gas. If you want me to provide some information on how this has been done, I’m quite happy to do so.

    ……

    There are people who will happily sit in a kitchen exposed to cooking smoke, or happily sit by an indoor open fire, or happily eat a meal with candles flickering at a table. Yet, let someone light a cigarette and they go into histrionics and “symptoms”. This would be a classic case of an anxiety disorder. And it’s not surprising because the goal of the inflammatory propaganda has been to make tobacco smoke look not only different to these other forms of smoke – which it’s not, but incredibly, extraordinarily different and dangerous.

    SORRY, but I MUST DISAGREE with ASSISTANCE, on the issue of
    public smoking! I was working as a waitress when the anti-smoking went into effect!! I was forced to breathe cigarette smoke and was HAVING HEART ISSUES BECAUSE OF IT!! AFTER THE BAN, there were NO MORE SYMPTOMS !! THAT BAN SAVED MY HEALTH, and UNNECESSARY MEDICAL COASTS!!

    Post WWII, the greatest concentration of eugenicists was in the USA. The eugenics mentality was never resolved in the USA. Eugenicists didn’t just disappear or change their mentality. They believed that Hitler had gone too far, but that the fundamentals of eugenics were sound. They were more than happy for the public to believe that eugenics was a Nazi phenomenon that disappeared with the defeat of Nazism and that anti-tobacco/alcohol in the USA had been solely produced by the temperance movement. Given the horrors associated with the term “eugenics” following Nazism, they simply stopped using the “E”[ugenics] word. Further, given their thoroughly flawed “heredity trees”, they abandoned the heredity/racial/breeding dimension and focused entirely on the behavioral dimension. [Genetics/genetic engineering took over study from “heredity trees”. This study has produced the Human Genome Project which is housed in the very same building complex in Cold Spring Harbor, NY, as the original Eugenics Record Office]
    The contemporary antismoking “crusade” has been produced by the same eugenics personnel – physicians, biologists, zoologists, pharmacologists, statisticians, behaviorists – continuing the eugenics obsession with anti-tobacco. Health reduced to biology is the eugenics framework and the aggressive peddling of the definition with a view to societal change (social engineering) is very much the fascism of the eugenics mentality. The current antismoking crusade was put into motion in the mid-1970s (see Godber/WHO Blueprint http://www.rampant-antismoking.com ). And since that time it is California that has been the global leader in antismoking, continuing its eugenics tradition. Rather than ban the sale of tobacco, the goal this time is to ban smoking in essentially all the places where people would typically smoke. Indoor and outdoor bans were planned years before even the first study on secondhand smoke. George Godber (now deceased) would have been happy if people were only permitted to smoke in their homes. So apartment bans would have probably shocked even Godber. However, as far as fanaticism is concerned, the extent of delusional action can be difficult to predict.

    In pushing their deranged world view, contemporary eugenicists are very much in line with their predecessors. They use lies, exaggeration, manipulation, pitting groups against other groups to achieve their goals, e.g., propaganda/denormalization. And like early last century, there are many – essentially the “educated”/wealthy classes – that have jumped on the bandwagon. There are now groups around America and the world stumbling over each other to be the first to institute the most draconian, widespread smoking bans for a eugenics-defined “healthier” society. California is still the leader in this regard.
    As history shows, eugenics is a dangerous philosophy. It promoted irrational belief, fear, intolerance, bigotry, racism, cruelty, brutality, crime. In the current antismoking bandwagon – just a taste of one dimension of eugenics – we see the same intolerance, irrational fear, and bigotry made to appear as “progressive”.

    Note: Given that eugenics thinkers didn’t refer to themselves as eugenicists, the obsession with only physical health that came to the fore in the 1970s has been termed “healthism”. Healthism is just another term for the hygienism of eugenics and, unfortunately, it masks the social-engineering intent and medical imperialism that is clearly the eugenics mentality.

    Eugenics has two aspects – a heredity/racial/breeding aspect and a behavioral aspect. Most are familiar with the first but very unfamiliar with the second. Along this behavioral dimension, eugenics is anti-tobacco, anti-alcohol, and advances prescriptive diet and physical exercise. Health (Hygiene) is reduced to an entirely biological phenomenon (physicalism, materialism). Over the last number of decades, health is referred to only in these [physical] terms.

    The Nazis didn’t invent eugenics. It was popularized in America. German eugenicists (and Hitler) were students of American eugenics. There was a close relationship between American and German eugenicists and between American and German industrialists who were supporters/funders of eugenics.

    There were concurrent anti-tobacco and anti-alcohol “crusades” in early-1900s USA. These crusades led to a temporary ban on the sale of tobacco in some states and smoking restrictions in most states, and eventually Prohibition immediately following WWI. Dillow (1981)
    http://www.americanheritage.com/content/thank-you-not-smoking
    Pushed by the eugenics and temperance movements, antismoking (and anti-alcohol) was viewed as in the interests of a “healthier” society. Rather, this fake “purity” promoted irrational fear, hatred, and social division: It brought out the worst in the human disposition. Baseless, inflammatory claims were made as a matter of course by so-called “authorities” and “experts”.
    What is not noted in Dillow (1981) is that eugenics was rife at the turn of the last century. In addition to its racial/heredity/breeding dimension that it is most notorious for, eugenics also has a behavioral dimension. Along this dimension, eugenics is anti-tobacco and anti-alcohol (negative eugenics) and aggressively pushes approved diet and physical exercise (positive eugenics). In this context, tobacco and alcohol are viewed as body toxins that should be avoided/eradicated. They are considered to detrimentally affect human [body] performance and reproduction.
    Consider the example of Indiana. It introduced a ban on the sale of cigarettes in 1905, followed by a sterilization law in 1907. By the time of Prohibition, 22 states already had sterilization laws and another 11 states would introduce such laws in the decade following Prohibition. Most anti-tobacco laws occurred before Prohibition and mostly in states that had/would have sterilization laws. There was a renewed attempt following Prohibition to introduce a tobacco version of Prohibition. It should be clear that eugenics was the driving force behind anti-tobacco, anti-alcohol, and sterilization laws early last century. It is the eugenics elite, funded by the mega-wealthy (e.g., Rockefeller, Ford, Harriman, Carnegie) and embraced by the so-called “educated”, that had the ear of the legislature. The temperance movement, with so-called “religious” leanings, had lobbied for tobacco and alcohol bans for decades since the mid-1800s. It had very, very limited success. Yet, as soon as the eugenicists came on the scene in the late-1800s, things started happening legislatively. The eugenics and temperance movements share the anti-tobacco/alcohol view. However, it was the eugenics movement that harnessed the temperance movement for its own agenda. It would be eugenics that would dominate proceedings in the early 1900s. There were those in the “religious” movement that even fully bought into eugenics.
    Eugenics made numerous baseless, inflammatory claims. These claims were simply accepted at face value given that eugenics was viewed as “scholarly” and “scientific”, and it promised a “healthier” society, ridded of crime, poverty, and disease. And it produced a bandwagon effect, with state by state progressively buying into the derangement.
    California was the leader in the American eugenics insanity. It performed more sterilizations – by far – than any other state. It performed over 20,000 sterilizations. The next highest state was North Carolina with 7,600. There was also an intimate connection between American – particularly Californian – and German eugenicists. The latter were students of American eugenics that later went on to lead the Nazi assault.
    Some insight into the connection between American eugenics – California in particular – and Nazi eugenics.

    Consider “iatrogenesis” which refers to any detrimental outcome produced by medical conduct (e.g., adverse drug reactions, medical errors, poor care of the bed-ridden resulting in infected bed sores). In America, from the very few studies that have been done, iatrogenic deaths are estimated at 750,000-1,000,000 per annum. It dwarfs the so-called tobacco “death toll” (400,000) and is approaching half of the total annual death toll in America (2,500,000). The medical establishment is by far the leading cause of preventable death and disability and associated costs.

    Further, the iatrogenic toll is far more plausible, causally, than the tobacco “toll”. The tobacco “toll” is based on lifetime use that also brings into play a veritable plethora of other factors over a lifetime. It is also argued from the population level that has very poor extrapolation to the individual level, i.e., it is a “statistical death toll”. Conversely, the iatrogenic toll is argued from the individual level and then estimated for the population level. For iatrogenesis, causation is typically demonstrable at the individual level. For example, with adverse drug reactions (these are properly prescribed, FDA approved drugs), it may take just one or a few pills to produce cardiac arrest in some patients that can be fatal or leave permanent injury. The patient is stable and within an hour of taking a pill goes into atypical catastrophic failure. The temporality of many of these associations is not over a lifetime, but involves hours or days. Of the two – the iatrogenic or tobacco tolls – it is the former that should attract very serious scrutiny. But, as will be seen, it has been the other way around, or upside-down, indicating who is running the show.

    Concerning smoking, there have been thousands upon thousands of antismoking “studies” conducted/funded. Many do not break new ground but simply reinforce the agenda. World Conferences on Smoking and Health have been occurring since the 1960s. In the last few decades there are National Conferences on Smoking and Health. There are now even Conferences for Nonsmokers. Then there are Smoking Cessation Conferences run by the Pharma cartel peddling its useless/dangerous “smoking-cessation” wares. Additionally there are numerous antismoking lectures and colloquia and speeches and committees and campaigns. Specific institutes for the study of tobacco have been created as sub-centres of university Public Health Departments (which in turn are sub-centres of the medical faculty). There is a plethora of taxpayer-funded antismoking organizations – referred to as “charities” – lobbying government for antismoking policies. There has been a frenzy of antismoking activity over the last three decades. A formidable, lucrative industry has been created that did not exist 30 years ago. And the bulk of it is all under medical direction. The medical establishment has wreaked social havoc, again, to tackle the tobacco “death toll”, and peddled essentially on the basis of the far smaller so-called tobacco “toll” in nonsmokers (SHS).

    So we could then ask that if this has been the reaction to the tobacco “death toll”, then there must be an even greater industry addressing/correcting institution-wide iatrogenesis? In fact, there’s not. Compared with the many thousands of antismoking studies, there are but a handful (~ 20) concerning institution-wide iatrogenesis, damning as they are. There are no conferences on iatrogenesis whatsoever. There are no specifically-created institutes addressing the issue. In fact, it attracts almost zero attention within the medical establishment itself. The medical administration doesn’t like talking about it or the public knowing about it. This is the same medical establishment that now wants to “fix-up” the world. Scrutinizing the medical establishment would reveal how unstable its framework is. It would mean a [reasonable] loss of profits and trust. While it tenaciously maintains the spotlight on its favorite social targets, it avoids scrutiny like the plague. The contemporary medical establishment has been reduced to a production line, a medical industrial complex, where the tenets of the Hippocratic Oath play little or no part. The medical establishment was out of control 30 years ago. It has since entered a sinister phase. And smokers are one of the first to notice the ugly side of the medical establishment in its world-fixing (eugenics) and financially-compromised aspirations.

    Antismoking is not new. It has a long, sordid history, much of it predating even the semblance of a scientific basis or the more recent concoction of secondhand smoke “danger”. Antismoking crusades typically run on inflammatory propaganda, i.e., lies, in order to get law-makers to institute bans. The current antismoking rhetoric has all been heard before. All it produces is irrational fear and hatred, discord, enmity, animosity, social division, and bigotry.

    The current antismoking crusade is much like previous crusades. It is a social-engineering, eradication crusade decided upon in the 1970s by a small, self-installed clique of fanatics operating under the auspices of the World Health Organization (the Godber Blueprint). This little, unelected group decided for everyone that tobacco-use should be eradicated from the world. These fanatics were speaking of secondhand smoke “danger” years before the first study on SHS, together with advocating indoor and OUTDOOR smoking bans.

    The damage that has been done over the last 3 decades, a “salami slice” at a time:

    Here’s a brief history of the antismoking madness over the last few decades.

    The first demand for a smoking ban was in the late-1980s concerning short-haul flights in the USA of less than 2 hours. At the time, the antismokers were asked if this was a “slippery slope” – where would it end? They ridiculed anyone suggesting such because this ban was ALL that they were after.
    Then they ONLY wanted smoking bans on all flights.
    Then the antismokers ONLY wanted nonsmoking sections in restaurants, bars, etc., and ensuring that this was ALL they wanted.
    Then the antismokers ONLY wanted complete bans indoors. That was all they wanted. At the time, no-one was complaining about having to “endure” wisps of smoke outdoors.

    While they pursued indoor bans, the antismokers were happy for smokers to be exiled to the outdoors. Having bulldozed their way into indoor bans, the antismokers then went to work on the outdoors, now declaring that momentary exposure to remnants of smoke in doorways or a whiff outdoors was a “hazard”, more than poor, innocent nonsmokers should have to “endure”.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans within 10 feet of entrance ways.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans within 20 feet of entrance ways.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans in entire outdoor dining areas.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans for entire university and hospital campuses and parks and beaches.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans for apartment balconies.
    Then they ONLY wanted bans for entire apartment (including individual apartments) complexes.

    On top of all of this, there are now instances, particularly in the USA, where smokers are denied employment, denied housing (even the elderly), and denied medical treatment. Smokers in the UK are denied fostering/adoption. Involuntary mental patients are restrained physically or chemically (sedation) rather than allow them to have a cigarette – even outside.
    At each point there was a crazed insistence that there was no more to come while they were actually planning the next ban and the brainwashing required to push it. There has been incessant (pathological) lying and deception. Many medically-aligned groups have been committed to antismoking – their smokefree “utopia” – since the 1960s. They have prostituted their medical authority and integrity to chase ideology. All of it is working to a tobacco-extermination plan run by the WHO and that most nations are now signed-up to (Framework Convention on Tobacco Control).

    We can see the pattern here. The concocted SHS “danger” concerned a minute statistical risk of entirely questionable causal basis for LIFELONG (30, 40, 50, 60 years) exposure to SHS from spousal smoking. Around 99.9+% of those exposed to SHS over a lifetime have NO elevated statistical risk of disease. Yet with the propaganda promoting the idea that SHS is bio-weapon-like, unlike anything else on earth, we now have many delicate and dainty nonsmokers “running the gauntlet” of smokers at building entranceways, hand cupped over mouth, terrified that they might inhale a whiff. This is the promotion of mental dysfunction (e.g., anxiety reactions, hypochondria, somatization). And the irrationally terrified then demand “protection”. It is fully to be expected as a result of incessant inflammatory propaganda. And this is typically what happens when the medically-aligned Public Health goes on its social-engineering, deranged ideological crusades. The fanatics will keep pushing as far as society allows them.

    This has all happened in just 20 years. If it was mentioned 20 years ago, or even 10 or 5 years ago, that smokers would be denied employment and housing and smoking bans in parks and beaches, it would have been laughed at as “crazed thinking”. Yet here we are. It’s all happened before and it has all been intentional, planned decades ago. We just don’t learn or we’re going to have to learn the very hard way because it has to do with far, far more than just smoking.

    The antismoking of the last three decades is important because it has allowed a “control/propaganda” network to be established, top-down, from the WHO to national government health bureaucracies that can now really be applied to anything. For some background on the current antismoking crusade – which is a continuation of eugenics antismoking – see the “Godber Blueprint”:

  23. Assistance says:

    The critical problem lies in what is understood by “health”.

    Consider the World Health Organization’s definition of health instituted in 1948:
    The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health in its preamble as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being.”

    Notwithstanding a few questionable concepts such as “complete”, we can be sure that this definition was a direct result of the Nuremberg trials addressing the horrors of Nazi eugenics. Whatever was directed at Nazi eugenics was also directed at American eugenics. Eugenics is biologically reductionist (materialist/physicalist) or, as noted by the Nazis, “applied biology”. The WHO definition attempts to account for the fact that health is more that just absence of disease, more than just a biological phenomenon. It involves other dimensions such as psychological and social.

    Given that this WHO definition was put into circulation by Brock Chisholm, the first director of the WHO and a eugenicist, there is always a suspicion as to how the WHO, a medical organization, could potentially warp this definition in the long-term. It could have been an “appeasing” definition, given the anti-eugenics sentiment of the time. (From my understanding, the “mental” and “social” well-being aspects were a last-minute inclusion).

    However, what should be noted is the limited scope of the WHO. It does not have a monopoly on health. Being a medical organization, it is intimately bound to the biological level. It is not really a world health organization but a world medical organization – a global medical headquarters. It would have to accept that there are aspects of health that are not its domain or jurisdiction. Just this idea, properly applied, should discourage potentially destructive ventures into social engineering as was seen in eugenics early last century.

    Yet with all this history, as we have seen over the last half century, particularly pertaining to antismoking, the WHO and the medical establishment generally, and contrary to the WHO’s very own definition of health, have deteriorated back into a biological reductionist view of health and ventures into social engineering.
    Over the last half century, health has been reduced to the behavioral dimension of eugenics – anti-tobacco, anti-alcohol, prescribed diet, and physical exercise. The WHO adopted antismoking as a societal ideal many decades ago (Godber Blueprint) and now most nations are signed-up to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. With this ideological stance comes social engineering, i.e., coercion to conformity.

    We have seen smoking bans on hospital grounds where patients have to venture considerable distances in night-attire and in all manner of weather to have a cigarette. This becomes a psychological and social health issue, in addition to the physical health issue. Indoor smoking bans with no prospect of accommodation have alienated particularly the elderly. This is a psychological and social health issue. Denormalization, a repugnant, vulgar concept very much identified with eugenics, has again come to the fore. Smokers have been incessantly slandered, ridiculed, and terrorized by official, government programs of denormalization. This is a psychological and social health issue. Many nonsmokers have been manipulated into irrational fear and bigotry to advance the ideological cause. This is an issue of psychological and social health. Smokers are being bullied out of normal social life on a purely ideological basis. This is an issue of psychological and social health. With this propaganda barrage, medical care professionals are demonstrating a cruel, bigoted streak – again – that can compromise the medical treatment of those who smoke. This is an issue of psychological, social, and physical health. Not only are psychological and social health issues important in their own right, but these can also have detrimental ramifications for physical health. Health has again been reduced to quantification, dollar cost-benefit analyses, another eugenics trait. All of these detrimental consequences inflicted by ideology under medical authority is iatrogenic.

    Everywhere we turn health has again been reduced to only a biological phenomenon (e.g., behavioral) and with the [eugenics] intent of social engineering. “Get healthy”, “he’s looking after himself”, “I work out” all pertain to physicalism. In the obsession with physicalism, psychological, social, moral, and ideo-political aspects of health have been brutalized and discarded – again. And it is the WHO that leads this assault.

    The truth of Benjamin Rush’s fears and statements can be readily seen if one simply explores the electrotherapy movement in the 1920’s and 30’s. For example, “google” Royal Rife, and even “Tesla.” Their work in the electrotherapy of cancer, chronic pain, etc., was suppressed by the organizations pretending to be “mainstream” medicine that were, in reality, nothing more than arms of the fledgling drug companies, i.e. BIG PHARMA. Many cures were lost to history in favor of pills, which had a better unit cost control mechanism.

      Thank you for commenting as it is good to know that there are MD’s that truly understand what is and has been happening. My question to you is: In your opinion are there many of your peers that share your view?

  26. SpringFever, I did not know that Obamacare was part of the global program, either. Just like the installation of Smart Meters is a global program, too. It is all about the establisment of the New World Order that George H. W. Bush (father) spoke about 20 years ago. When George H.W. Bush signed the Rio Accords at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, he opened the path for the United States to implement U.N. Sustainable Development Agenda 21. When Bill Clinton created the President’s Council for Sustainable Development by Executive Order in 1993, he laid the foundation for a proliferation of intermediate and local councils that would set out to alter radically the structure of government in the United States. These councils operate under many different names. Later under George W. Bush, Sustainable Development policy began to swarm every county in the country”. – Michael Shaw, Proprietor of Liberty Garden

    I apologize because I fought hard against Obamacare thinking domestically how bad it was, but your comment “…“obamacare” is being implemented as part of a larger global program…” has woken me up to something more serious with a one world government unifying health care to control population control. Thanks for broadening the view, at least for me.

        lady liberty,FOR several years the world was scared americans were crazy or stupid,on nov.6 we layed their worst fears to rest,we proved americans ARE stupid and crazy,ON nov.6 the lord placed his hand on the toilet lever on america and flushed,america will now go down the sewers of history,as it has turned to shit………….

    • wisefool says:

      You are correct. What most people don’t realize (choose to not realize) is the whole Obamascare plan has everything to do with government takeover of the healthcare system. I for one just can’t wait ’till I’m being told I HAVE to get inoculated with their slow kill garbage just to keep my job. Luciferians, gotta love ‘em.

      • Patriotpete says:

        Yes we will now have governmentally controlled health care. We all know how well government runs things… into the ground!

        • Karma says:

          Actually government does some things pretty well or used to until people wanted government out of their face… like Social Security. And once upon a time the US Postal Service (austerity measures), free public libraries (but they’re closing them down), interstate highways (little money left to fix them because of huge war budget), FDIC. Not all government things are bad. If left to the private sector most citizens would end up dying in a ditch.

          • marcel says:

            Yes, most government things are bad. That’s why Social Security is a ponzi scheme that has gone on far longer than it would have in the private sector (think Bernie Madoff; his scheme did not last nearly as long nor did it rip off nearly as many people). The internet is vastly superior to tax-funded libraries; thousands die on government highways (more people than gun violence); the FDIC is false bank “insurance.” Most citizens would flourish if things were left to the private/voluntary sector.

            You don’t believe this, so you won’t give it a chance. There are billions of people like you, trained in tax-funded schools (“private” or public). Big reason why we are in the mess we’re in.
