Pulling a page from the CCP playbook, according to some, now you’re mentally ill if you question the official narrative. From 2021 onward, your brain is the battlefield. Protect it at all costs.
Two years before COVID-19, I warned that Pharma would work via our institutions toward mandating psychotropic medicines for the general population. With this article, I am ringing that alarm bell again. This a battle over rights, yes, and our brains are the battlefield.
Foundational knowledge – the basis of our understanding of reality – is not just in decay. It is being destroyed, systematically, by those who profit massively from imposed ignorance via censorship and the thought police. Without freedom of speech, there can be no freedom of thought. That’s one of the points that Benjamin Franklin made, writing as Silence Dogood, when he penned in the New England Courant (1722):
“Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as publick Liberty, without Freedom of Speech; which is the Right of every Man, as far as by it, he does not hurt or controul the Right of another: And this is the only Check it ought to suffer, and the only Bounds it ought to know.
“This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own. Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech; a Thing terrible to Publick Traytors.”
The realities that I, and others, had been reporting on as early as February 2020 are now vividly obvious as fact to nearly any thinking individual. During the past two years, your thought processes – your knowledge – your understanding – of the reality of disinformation campaigns about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines, and COVID-19 treatments has become pathologized in the biomedical literature to an extent that is difficult to imagine. This #PopularRationalism article chronicles that gaslighting in detail cataloging and characterizing their various methods of pathologizing dissent.
The number of articles, studies, letters to the editor, and online medium reports that represent thought processes of rational skepticism and critical analysis of clearly fraudulent messaging is stunning.
From early 2020 onward, hundreds of individuals bent on spreading their belief and faith in Fauci’s multifaceted misleading messaging attempted to pathologize (that is, turn into clinical psychiatric disease) vaccine risk awareness. Vaccine risk awareness is one of phrases I offered to counter the label “anti-vaccinism”; it was made popular in 2015 by a mention by Del Bigtree on The Highwire. Vaccine risk awareness is the knowledge of vaccine risk coupled with the knowledge of programs designed to minimize the public’s perception of risk).
There seem to be multiple approaches to the pathologization of vaccine risk awareness – and with it the best tools we have as a society for a rational and scientific basis for a stable future. Based on my deep dive into the issues, these include:
