This is one very sane and reasoned article from Dr. Donald Miller, a retired cardiac surgeon and professor of surgery on the Left Coast. Don is also a successful writer and public speaker who spent the latter part of his career battling the medicalocracy and it’s politicized junk science. He is a scientist as well as a long-time champion of truth and personal liberty.
This article is a refreshing change from the emotional ranting, screeching, hatred, and relentless vomit attacks being spewed from the Vaccination Nation crusaders who have pegged anyone who dares to think or act outside the collective box as the “anti-vaxxers.” Maybe those of us who question the vaccination question are just anti-groupthink, anti-stupidity, and pro-thinking for ourselves.
Embracing logic and critical thinking while assessing and analyzing facts that may lead us down a road not blessed by the popular thought-of-the-day has become a crime in our modern, collectivist, in-the-box society. Folks have no pangs of conscience whatsoever as regards the use of coercion to force their beliefs, their ideals, and their garbage-bag extrapolation of facts unto others. They gather in packs of like-mindedness and barrage the mainstream media and social media with their malice for anyone who dares to defy the prevailing winds of wisdom that demand we all play our part and assume a position couched in frenzied hysteria. Here are a few headlines culled from the mainstream and alternative media.
“Anti-vaxxer campaign: one foolish, dangerous trend.”
“How to Deal With Anti-Vaxxers. Try to persuade them. And if that fails, give them no choice.”
“4 Disease making a Comeback Thanks to Anti-Vaxxers.” (Reveals the incredible “scientific logic” of Time magazine)
Anti-Vaxxers ruined Disneyland: Why this public health nightmare needs to be stopped. (This Salon writer reveals her excessive and emotive support for coercion by saying that ruining Disneyland should be “the final straw” [ for allowing folks to reject vaccinations ] )
And don’t forget Herr Obama’s brilliant pronouncement: “the science is, you know, pretty indisputable.”
Democracy is indeed a process of two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. And the wolves are out in force, striking at a rapid cadence, with their heads buried up their collective buns. Yet I don’t see any screeching, hate-driven headlines or statements from “anti-vaxxers” claiming that people should not be allowed to choose to be vaccinated.
