Part : 2. DOCTRINE OF CENSORSHIP and DECEIPT; vs DOCTRINE OF TRUTH:
The Doctrine of Truth (as opposed to theological disputes) may be said to date back perhaps 2400 years to Plato. The opposite, the Doctrine of Deception and Censorship may have been used by ruthless rulers throughout history against their own citizens to justify achieving their goals at any cost; and may be said to have been adapted from the Cold War enemy and perfected by the Kissinger-Bush Regime in the past 40 years, and after 9/11 used to plunge America into multitrillion dollar futile war debt in Iraq and Afghanistan. The same team (Kissinger’s kindergarten- the Bushes, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz) has been operating in Washington Administration since the Vietnam war, fuelling failed states- Shock Doctrine , promoting the policy of two foreign wars for profit at any time, and disseminating nuclear weapons to Pakistan, South Africa and many other warring states. . But fortunately that ruthless regime was not able to emasculate the USA Supreme Court as the ANC Govt is now doing in South Africa, and most powermad governments do.
Last week the California Supreme Court under the First Amendment guaranteeing free speech, threw out the FDA Doctrine of Censorship that bans truthful health claims about supplements, the Doctrine of Deception that corporations, politicians and governments now use to further their own interests not those of citizens.
This Court victory is progress after the revelations the past year this column and others review serially about the endemic Big Pharma-FDA- governments’ fraud around modern drugs and technology, the ficticious Celebrex-Bextra-Vioxx and swine flue ‘pandemic’ scams, the flu vaccines, Tamiflu, and now the Rotavirus vaccine and HPV- Cervix cancer vaccines; and the evidence-based vindication of Dr Andrew Wakefield’s work and martyrdom on damage inflicted by multiple early vaccinations .
For example, the H1N1, swine flu and HPV vaccines may produce strong antibody reactions, but where is the evidence that they translate longterm into reduction in serious sequelae from infections and cancer, and without serious long term unintended complications like neurological impairment? But Big Pharma is immunized at incalculable cost to future taxpayers- by the USA government – (which blissfully passes out of responsibility after it’s 4 to 8 year term)- which simply denies the possibility of risk and blocks cost-benefit trials of swine flu vaccine lasting even 2 year let alone 5 years.
The best evidence summary on Pubmed for HPV vaccine is a 2007 review that serological results “imply they will be effective at preventing related cervical cancer” -on which supposition multimillions of young women, even pre-teen boys and grils are being/ have been coerced into having unproven costly risky vaccines. Why else would health insurers be still opposing the $360 cost of this unproven vaccination?
The precedents for longterm vaccine adversity are horrendous, especially after previous misdirected western medical zealotry for clitoridectomy and oophorectomy for rebelliousness even up to the 1900s, the incarceration in asylums of the ‘mentally ill’ including dissidents, to mass forced electroconvulsive therapy, to misdirected elective hysterectomy , or gastric surgery for peptic ulcer, to gross antibiotic abuse, to the numerous major complications and deaths after the previous shotgun antiflu vaccination campaign not a few decades ago – never mind the gross disasters from hasty new drug profiteering with eg stilbestrol, the early highdose oral contraceptives, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, discussed in a recent previous column.
By contast, the USA delayed the introduction of lithium there- heavy competition for it’s new -psychotrope empire- by refusing to licence for decades lithium carbonate- the gold standard for treatment of deadly bipolar disease outside USA- until the great Dane father of lithium Dr Magnus Schou had been forced to put his patients at risk by doing a double-blind withdrawal trial of lithium; and it refused to licence and encourage metformin- the gold standard drug (aet 1922) outside USA since the 1950s against type 2 diabetes- until the UK did the unique double-blind UKPDS trial which confirmed that metformin is the only patent ever drug which reduces both major disease and all-cause mortality by over a third.
And despite major trials for up to 4 years on 4 continents proving that preventative metformin in overweight ie prediabetic patients more than halves the occurrence of new diabetes, reduces all markers of lipidemia, inflammation, thrombosis, and therefore future mobidity, obesity and mortality, the FDA and the disease industry still continue the farce of maintaining that metformin is proven solely to treat type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome, while they promote new antidiabetics , antilipidemia and appetitite suppressants (unproven by longterm trials) until enough patients suffer and die, like from the glitazones, incretins, statins, fenphen, acarbose, sibutramine, rimonabant, xenical etc.
Fortunately the landmark California judgement comes in the same week as UK society questions the abandonment of religious ie moral education in secular UK schools. This hard-won judicial and moral Doctrine of Truth, of Human Rights – which especially USA, UK, Europe and South African governments up to the present have abandoned this century- applies equally to the BBC ie the media, and Governments/Corporations – politicians and officials; and the Disease Industry including Regulators, Big Pharma and clinicians.
INFORMATION WARFARE AND THE DOCTRINE OF DECEPTION: Prof Bill Hutchinson (Chair of the Australian Information Warfare and Security Conference) in his seminal essay Information Warfare and Deception(2007) describes the Doctrine of (Dis)Information Deception strategy best practiced by the most developed countries that can monitor electonic media and control mass media via small cartels.. He quotes the Soviet Marxist-Lenminist concept of maskirovka which includes deception, disinformation, secrecy, feints, diversions, imitation, concealment, simulation and security.. Basically, it is concerned with “anything capable of confusing, and therefore weakening, the enemy” (Lloyd, 1997).
Which strategy the USA politicians rapidly put to good use from lessons learnt in the wars in Vietnam, Panama, the Falklands , the disaster capitalism used to loot countries by shock doctrine; and so tightly applied in the past decades’ wars started by the Bush quintet; the senior Bush having served as head of the CIA. Donald Rumsfeld was successively head of GD Searle till it was sold to the rogue company Montsano so deeply involved in the growth hormone, pesticide and genetically modified seeds scandals, and then of Gilead Science manufacturer of Tamiflu – one of the scandals of the swine flu scam last year. Dick Cheney was head of Halliburtons, the US corporation most scandalously favoured by $billions in government contracts throughout the Iraq war. Marcia Angell details how Rumsfeld’s GD Searle subsequently ended up as part of Pfizer; and that one recent (2003) annual meeting of PhRMA included Bush senior, the Secretary for Health, former FDA commissioner McClellan and Senator George Allen. So deeply are the politicians involved in Big Pharma.
This deception strategy has long and expertly been deployed by Big Pharma and others in the Disease megaIndustry. In the marketing health complex context, for ‘enemy’ read those not in Big Pharma/ Disease technology manufacture- the reputedly independent regulators, legislators and clients- healthcare insurers/ medical aid groups, State healthcare organizations, healthcare providers and patients. For the other side read ‘Government-Regulator-Diseasemongering- Disease Technology producers- Big Pharma’ complex.
It remains to be seen whether, as Hutchinson writes, the government -disease industry -mass media complex uses draconian (paramilitary) tactics yet again to overturn judical vigilance for free speech and choice. So after millennia of promotion, growth of truth and human rights as portrayed and promoted by rational moderate thinkers (in modern times like Kierkegaard, George Elliot, Winwood Reade, Rudolf Steiner, Churchill, Ghandi, Margaret Sanger, Linus Pauling, Ivan Illich, Ken Galbraith, Herman Wouk, and now Naomi Klein, AC Grayling, and medical Drs James Le Fanu, Andrew Weil and Marcia Angell) , now greedy zealots of all faiths – muslim, catholic, baptist, jew, taoist, atheist, – in business, industry, politics, and specifically the Disease and Big Pharma Industry continue to expand their manipulative power and profit interests.
HARM NOT PREVENTION FROM HIGHTECH SCREENING:
We have watched with increasing alarm the past decades the proliferation of supposedly preventative costly technology mushroom , from autoanalysers and hypercholesterol mania to screening for low risk silent breast prostate and colon cancers, to molecular and genetic screening- each multibillion dollar goldmines. . Now the lid is coming off the obvious, that the more “diagnostic” xray screening eg xray mammography, the more cancer ;
and the more the preventative new designer synthetic drugs promoted eg statins bisphosphosphonates nonsteroidal antiinflammatories psychotropes & agents eg genetically modified seeds, the greater the unintended consequences- without any overall benefit except to monster profiteers in industry and government.
So the rights achieved by many martyrs against European, Muslim, Asian, panAmerican and even African ethnic and religious despotism for so many – especially for the poor, women and childen, the ill and the aging – in the late 20th century are fast fading as the power-and money-mad destroy the environment, democracy, health and security including especially for old age in almost all countries, on all but two of the continents.
Which brings us back to yesterdays’ ‘ headline health soundbite: to fight for appropriate affordable optimal ie parenteral balanced human hormone replacement supplements to manage aging.
