The Perils of Medical Hubris

Laws that demand parents knowingly risk injury or death or their own beloved children are intolerably inhumane. The question is not whether such injustices will be resolved; the question is whether parents will wait to convince the majority, flee as medical refugees to more rational States, or disregard such cruel overreach? Once forced, they have no moral choice but to walk away from orthodox medicine one by one, thereby, en masse, revealing the relative futulity of paradigms poisoned by profit incentives due to the hubris of a paternalist medical conspiracy of good intentions. Woeful and willful ignorance of risk portend disastrous outcomes: the rejection of Science and The Press by the inevitably awakened majority, and a vigorous condemnation and punishment of purveyors of misinformation leading parents to bring their most precious prosperity to slaughter for some uncertain proclaimed greater good. Governments must behold and heed the wisdom of painfully earned experiences of the injured masses who come in earnest to protect those with unrecognized shared peril. For all the uncertainty and suppositions, one outcome is assured: this well-identified minority of American citizens will not conform; given their natural imperative as parents they will resist and protect the welfare of their loved ones, they will defend their liberties against any assault, and they will not rest until the abrogation of the sacred contract of public trust is revoked and is replaced with a trust of self-determinism and remedied via public health policies and medical practices founded on reality.

  1. No medical treatment should ever be mandatory. We cleared that up after the doctor’s trial at Nuremburg, and we hung by the neck until dead at least one of the architects and perpetrators of that horror. Alas, the Nuremburg Code does not exist in statutory law in any U.S. jurisdiction, and seems to have been forgotten. What is being done today to children in the name of “public health” differs not a whit, ethically or morally, from what the National Socialists did in Germany in the 1930’s and 40’s. It differs little scientifically or medically, as well. I have yet to see an RCT showing that vaccination is superior non-vaccination for any disease, or for overall health outcomes or longevity. They don’t exist, nor will they ever. We do know something of the adverse affects of this medical treatment, although most of that is craftily and carefully hidden, or simply denied. Could we get a case into a court of law before a jury of citizens, a right guaranteed us in the Seventh Amendment to our Constitution this injuring of the entire population from birth onward would come to a halt. Why did the British people rise up and demand that the smallpox vaccine mandate be overturned? And why did Parliament acquiesce? Because the vaccine made the health of the population worse, as the mumps, acellular pertussis, and varicella vaccines are doing today. We are rapidly slipping into a state of medical fascism, and this is profoundly frightening. Diabolical evil in control of federal and state governments, virtually the entire media, and now with widespread censorship of factual information which directly addresses and repudiates government propaganda by the ultra-powerful tech companies whose platforms have become our modern medium of communication and learning, an essential act of citizenship, of the public discourse. Soon, no physician will be safe to practice medicine in the interests of their patients in California, and New York, as well. Only the President, from the bully pulpit, could put the brakes on this, and if he did so, he would be attacked with a viciousness orders of magnitude beyond what he has seen before. Never in my life did I imagine the country I love would devolve into a plutocratic menace to all. I have great reverence for the process of science, and great respect for those who practice it honorably, but, they, too are defamed or marginalized, if their findings represent a threat to the revenue stream which has become the sole purpose of Medicine in our day and age.

  3. Christopher Hickie: I suspect nobody ever taught you the fundamentals of discourse that grown-ups often engage in, or perhaps you forgot them. The first fundamental is: If you disagree, or even if you agree, but wish to add something of relevance or interest, with one or more points in a spoken statement or written essay, address that or those points in your criticism, address them directly with your own arguments, and do so with clarity. Ad hominem is a logical fallacy which, in plain English, essentially means: shoot the messenger, ignore the message. Your comment is more or less all ad hominem. Of no value.

  4. Speaking of hubris, lest you or your readers dream of being grand white knights riding forth to save the world from autism:

    Remember first that people with autism, who actually have it, detest anti vaxxers. It’s the failure to see Autism Spectrum Disorder as anything other than broken, a failure, and useless. Better to be dead than autistic, hey? That’s always buried somewhere deep in the calculation.

    Maybe it’s the gift of unemotional rationality that sees the motivated reasoning born of guilt.

    Not hubris then, but shameful neurotypical bigotry.

    When I look in the mirror I see a patriot that believes in human rights who believes in medical autonomy and know that any violation of that in the form of FORCED VACCINATION is a violation of the Nuremberg Code.

    Nuremberg Code: Point #1
    The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.

    Forced vaccination also violates Codes: 5, 7, 9, 10.

    Considering it is now know that there are NO Randomized Double Blind Placebo Controlled Studies on any vaccine PRE-LICENSING. NO safety or efficiency studies done on any vaccine prior to licensing and administering to children. This is the Gold Standard of scientific research. We now know via admission by HHS that they have violated and are in NON-COMPLIANCE WITH 42 USC 300AA-27C. This means that the vaccination programs are an experiment. Vaccination is a medical procedure. We are still a county of Laws and not the laws created by the Pharmaceutical industry, HHS. CDC and all their allegiances for profits.

    Legal Right to Refuse Medical Treatment in the USA:
    – Union Pacific Railway Co. v. Botsford, 141 U.S. 250, 251 (1891)
    – Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital, 105 N.E. 92, 93 (N.Y. 1914)
    – In addition to the patient’s personal interest in autonomy, self-determination, bodily integrity, freedom from battery, etc.,1 the right to refuse medical treatment is a corollary to the doctrine of informed consent.
    •Cruzan v. Director, Missouri Dept. of Health, 497 U.S. 261, 270 (1990) (“The logical corollary of the doctrine of informed consent is that the patient generally possesses the right not to consent, that is, to refuse treatment.”);
    •In re Brown, 478 So.2d 1033, 1040 (Miss. 1985) (“The informed consent rule rests upon the bedrock of this state’s respect for the individual’s right to be free of unwanted bodily intrusions no matter how well intentioned. Informed consent further suggest a corollary: the patient must be informed of the nature, means and likely consequences of the proposed treatment so that he may ‘knowingly’ determine what he should do one of his options being rejection.”);
    •Cruzan v. Harmon, 760 S.W.2d 408, 417 (Mo. 1988) (“The doctrine of informed consent arose in recognition of the value society places on a person’s autonomy and as the primary vehicle by which a person can protect the integrity of his body. If one can consent to treatment, one can also refuse it. Thus, as a necessary corollary to informed consent, the right to refuse treatment arose.”);
    •Matter of Guardianship of L.W., 482 N.W.2d 60, 65 (Wis. 1992) (“The logical corollary of the doctrine of informed consent is the right not to consent — the right to refuse treatment.”);
    In re Fiori, 673 A.2d 905, 910 (Pa. 1996) (“The doctrine of informed consent declares that absent an emergency situation, medical treatment may not be imposed without the patient’s informed consent. A logical corollary to this doctrine is the patient’s right, in general, ‘to refuse treatment and to withdraw consent to treatment once begun.’ [citations omitted]”);
    •Stouffer v. Reid, 993 A.2d 104, 109 (Maryl. 2010) (“We explained that the ‘fountainhead of the doctrine [of informed consent] is the patient’s right to exercise control over his own body,… by deciding for himself [or herself] whether or not to submit to the particular therapy. ’Mack, … 618 A.2d [744] at 755 (Maryl. 1993) (quoting Sard v. Hardy, … 379 A.2d 1014,1019 (Maryl. 1977)).)

    The doctrine of informed consent partly comes from the fiduciary duty of the physician to the patient:
    The relationship between a doctor and his patient is one of trust calling for a recognition by the physician of the ignorance and helplessness of the patient regarding his own physical condition. Canterbury v. Spence, 464 F.2d [772] at 781 [(D.C.Cir. 1972), cert. denied, 409U.S. 1064 (1972)]. The duty of the doctor to inform the patient is a fiduciary duty. [citing two cases] The patient is entitled to rely upon the physician to tell him what he needs to know about the condition of his own body. The patient has the right to chart his own destiny, and the doctor must supply the patient with the material facts the patient will need in order to intelligently chart that destiny with dignity. Canterbury v. Spence, supra, 464 F.2d at 782.
    (Doctors violate this every time they do not provide parent or patient with all the information and adverse reactions of vaccines and every time they threaten to call CPS or kick them out of their practice because they will not comply to the wishes of the Doctors.)

    Miller v. Kennedy, 522 P.2d 852, 860 (Wash.App. 1974), aff’d per curiam, 530 P.2d 334 (Wash.1975). Cited in Woolley v. Henderson, 418 A.2d 1123, 1128, n.3 (Me. 1980). See also Lambertv. Park, 597 F.2d 236, 239, n.7 (10thCir. 1979) (“The duty of the doctor to inform the patient is in the nature of a fiduciary duty; thus, the patient has the right to decide what medical procedure he will undertake and the doctor must supply the patient with the material facts the patient will need in order intelligently to make that decision.”

    Do you believe in the law of Informed Consent? Do you believe in the Constitution?
    The 9th Amendment. “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

    The pejorative anti-vac is used by people who have a weak and lazy mind because thy don’t have the law or science to support their propaganda and lies. It was created to generate fear among parents who have not done their own research and have been manipulated to believe that childhood illness such as Measles are killer illness and to terrorize Doctors who have seen vaccine damaged children but are too afraid to speak up because they don’t want to get Wakefield. Remember, even one of the creators of the Measles vaccines said this about the illness (before the WHO declared it a killer disease in 2000) said this:

    Dr. Alexander Langmuir, the father of modern day epidemiology was a strong supporter for development of the vaccine even though he knew that measles was a

    “self-limiting infection of short duration, moderate severity, and low fatality, which has maintained a remarkable stable biological balance over the centuries.

    He also stated,
    “To those who ask me, ‘Why do you wish to eradicate measles?’ I reply with the same answer that [Sir Edmund] Hilary used when asked why he wished to climb Mt. Everest. He said ‘because it is there.’ To this may be added “And it can be done.”

    He never said, Because it’s maiming thousands with blindness and encephalitis and killing hundreds, and is a blight worse than Black Plague. (NOT that it was ever needed)

    1. Your question as posted assumes that all unvaccinated are dead due to infections from pathogens for which vaccines exist and that vaccines cause autism in all who vaccinate, neither of which is correct. It is therefore non-sequitur. The correct comparison is life umvaccinated w/out vaccine induced encephalopathy leading to autism vs. Life vaccinated with in cases in which asd risk from vaccination exists.

    2. First you must prove that not receiving a vaccine will absolutely kill an individual beyond a shadow of a doubt scientifically. Please provide data to substantiate that. Keep in mind that baby boomers have not received any of the vaccines that are now on the CDC’s adult immunization schedule which the CDC claims they must have to prevent outbreaks, in well over 30 years or more. How do you account for the largest unvaccinated group in the US and probably the world not dying daily from infectious diseases such as measles, chickenpox, pertussis etc.

      Peter: “Do you think autism is worse than death?”
      “it is a question about the value of a life lived with autism alone”

      I do thank you though for that question & comment because what you have done is admit that Vaccines cause Autism. Why on earth would you ask is autism worse than death unless you actually do think that the vaccines can cause autism?

      BTW: Do you have an “Independent” Double Blind Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study that confirms that any vaccine campaign was responsible for disease reduction in any part of the world, at any point in history. Another way of putting it-Do you have any Scientific Independent studies that confirms that disease reduction in any part of the world, at any point in history was attributable to inoculation of its populations?

        First-you have not answered any of the questions that I have asked of you so I will ask them again. Once you answer my questions with independent unbiased sources to support your answers than we can move on to your ridiculous question of who your handlers are. I will give you this hint-you have been posting old talking points so I would hate to think you are coming up with those questions on your own because they lack intelligent thought. So please answer my questions and we can move on:

        -Do you believe in the Constitution?
