On Measles

Let’s talk about Measles
– Measles was declared eliminated from the US in 2000
– Eliminated is “absence of continuous disease transmission for greater than 12 months”
– From January 1 to April 26, 2019, 704 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 22 states.
Why?

The difference between SCIENCE and SCIENTISM rests in understanding one key thing: the answer to “WHY?” is mainly philosophical and philosophy is multilevel & systemic.
So…
1. Why measles was considered eliminated in the first place? 12 months of absence is elimination?

2. Anti-vaxxers! That’s the problem! And why citizens suddenly don’t trust vaccines? Just idiots? The same scientists, who declared measles eliminated (!), fail to understand why a parent would be afraid in 2019 to put state-sponsored substance to the blood of his baby?

3. The same guys, who labeled measles eliminated, also inform us that immigration is not the cause. It’s a myth by anti-vaxxers.
Yet a widespread GLOBAL increase in measles preceded the US incidents. Coincidence?

4. According to NYT current measles outbreak in US is linked to travellers from Israel (Orthodox Jewish). However, vaccination rates among the Orthodox in Israel were in the 80 % range — better than in many other countries, but not enough to stop measles. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/03/health/measles-outbreaks-ukraine-israel.html

5. So, again, why do we have a measles outbreak? Conservative religiously-inclined Anti-vaxxers! As if Big Pharma is a trustworthy enterprise in the first place. The World Health Organisation has announced another main factor: POVERTY in a global level.

6. NOTE: If you search “Big Pharma” in Google the first result is a Wikipedia article on “Big Pharma conspiracy theory”. Big Pharma… is a … conspiracy theory. Let that sink for a minute. Rational Wiki (the BS skeptics) also put it in the “conspiracy” section.

7. The solution? Germans… being Germans.


what’s your point exactly? that it’s ok to be against vaccines? come-on, whatever the reason there’s a measles outbreak, being an anti-vaxer is dangerous bordering on criminal
Enforced use of vaccines (& centralised medical treatment) is not borderline criminal: it’s profoundly criminal breaching the Nuremberg Code & the foundation of the “right of human dignity”. It opens the doors of hell. More on my thread here:

On idiots

Let’s talk about idiots.

1/ Definition. A practical definition of an idiot could be this: binary thinking, either PRO or AGAINST sth. No nuance.
– throw all gays to jail or Soros-sponsored LGBT parades?
– blindly accept ALL vaccinations or blindly reject them? etc.

2/ Idiots see the PRESENT, the PAST and the FUTURE through binary thinking.
> In fact, classical manuals of propaganda teach step-by-step how to create a BIPOLAR AXIS (black & white) to dominate the debate before even starting it.

3/ The two principles for idiots:
(1) It would idiotic to presume that all idiotic trends are equal.
(2) Never underestimate the power of idiots in large groups
Let’s explore the first principle…

4/ All idiots are NOT equal:
– (A) All vaccines are evil … or … (B) all vaccines are safe
– (A) Muslim caliphate … or … (B) atheism is the “scientific” way of life
– (A) White nationalism … or … (B) open borders .
.. you know the rest

5/ Today the B-type of idiots have into their disposal:
– academy
– mass media & social media powerhouses
– political & economic establishment
– power of law & constitutional reforms (e.g. UN reports on “toxic masculinity”)
Anti-vaxxers don’t have a chance to compete with UN.

6/ B-Type of pro-vaccine idiots are marching into open VIOLATION OF NUREMBERG CODE and the foundations of modern Civil Rights. They have no clue on the legal territory we are entering.

7/ B-Type of idiots talk about science having no clue on relevant scientific literature and risks. Like kids playing with matches.

8/ B-Type of idiots. Again.

9/ It’s a trendy to talk about “natural selection” having zero understanding.

EVOLUTION 101
Deers & antilopes pause at any subtle noise from the woods presuming there is a hidden threat. ANY NOISE = DEATH SIGNAL. The less paranoid deers didn’t survive. Period.

10/ Today, having people going PARANOID to the point of refusing all vaccines (anti-vaxxers) by a central government is a proof that humanity may have a chance after-all. Again, oh… what a coincidence… religious groups being the non-conformists to central authority.

11/ Evolution is about understanding worst case scenarios (WCS). The WCS is NOT a plague. Humanity survived countless plagues. The worst scenario is being hunted by the most potent HUNTER: a human with tools. And, at the same time, living a natural catastrophe (e.g. plague).

12/ So…

am I an anti-vaxxer? No.
am I pro-vaccines? No.

I’m pro judging ALL medical treatments individually case-by-case and use them ONLY with informed consent. At any point, when an unidentified noise comes from the woods….. it may actually kill us.

13 / Western civilisation faced many threats: plagues, wars, muslim occupation, communists, nazis… you name it. And still, our values evolved in favouring CONSENT over COERCION, INSPIRING & PERSUADING over THREATENING. Favouring the COMPLEX over the EASY social solutions.
