Whether or not we can express it clearly, or even perceive it clearly, I think nearly every adult grasps that medicine is being used as a weapon.
I am not a doctor, but I’ve been surrounded by medical professionals since my youth, beginning with my mom, who was not only an RN, but Head Nurse at two different hospitals. I’ve also been involved with science for a long time.
I’ll be brief, making just five primary points. But we’ve been losing science and we’ve been losing medicine; that is flatly unacceptable.
#1: Science is not consensus. Ten, one hundred, or a million people, all draped in lab coats and saying the same thing, does NOT make it so. In fact, it matters not at all. It’s nothing but theater, and it’s anti-science.
All science is, really, is a process of testing ideas; it is not an organization, it is not based upon authority (it’s inherently anti-authority), and it is very certainly not allied with power. All that matters in science are verifiable results.
#2: Medicine stands apart from, and above, politics. Medicine is the application of science to the furtherance of human health. Politics is the use of persuasion and power to rule masses of humans. These are fully separate disciplines. To place politics over medicine is to subjugate and degrade medicine: it’s a path backwards into darkness.
I’ll leave details on this point to working medical practitioners, who can provide them with far greater specificity than I can… provided they’re not too frightened to do so.
#3: Peer review no longer means much. Again I won’t go into great detail, but peer review has been captured by academic hierarchies and almost fully separated from science proper. It has become a tool of institutional power, wielded by academics who have sold out science for the favors of power and politics.
At one time, “peer review” referred to the honest replication of experiments. That time is past.
#4: Medicine and science have nothing to do with social pressure. Once “medicine” and “science” are mixed with social pressure, they are no longer science or medicine. At that point they are instruments of thuggery, and nothing more.
#5: If you don’t read multiple scientific papers, especially from rebels and cast-outs, you simply don’t know. You can pretend you know, of course, and you can be sure that agents of the status quo will provide you with passable reasons to repeat their slogans, but you won’t actually know.
What you see on TV is propaganda. What you see on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube is pre-censored. If you want to really know, you’ll have to find the scientific papers that address your question… and you’ll need papers that are rejected by televised authorities. If you don’t, all you’ll have are pre-censored conclusions, the underlying facts of which may or may not be reliable.
At this point, if you don’t include “conspiracy theory” research, you’re more or less stuck with Orwell’s Ministry of Truth. Sad but mostly true.
The Problem Is Emotional Weakness
The problem underlying all of this is not intellectual strength, it’s emotional strength. It’s not that people are stupid, it’s that they haven’t the strength to face unauthorized truth:
- Having been trained in submission to authority, to then speak against an authority is terrifying. And so people find ways to ignore truth (which has no backing but itself) and to sanctify authority, which is backed by everything from shame to guns.
- The fear of appearing stupid – of being publicly exposed as stupid – can be overwhelming. And with “important” people tearing up anyone not in lockstep with them, defiance seems too expensive.
- Power being wrong calls too much into question. If the high and mighty can be publicly wrong, repeatedly and adamantly, what can’t be called into question? And if everything can be questioned, one must face the world alone.
- Once people act upon fear, they can either turn against it and admit their error, or they can defend their errors at length. And if the people who thrive on those fears maintain a stream of frights and slogans… anyone on “the other side” becomes a heretic, to be hunted down and forced to submit.
None of these things have any connection to truth, only to power and intimidation. And that is anti-science, no matter how much it masquerades as science.
10 thoughts on “The Weaponization of Medicine”
I agree 100%. This is certainly applicable to the suppression of inexpensive, and effective cures for Covid-19, such as Ivermection, and Hydroxycloriquine. Cancer cures are also being suppressed. It’s all about money. I know that one must do their own research, as the media and politicians have zero credibility.
Ivermectin stopped covid in its tracks in India state.
Excellent points all.
Thank you for this article! I am a healthcare professional of 47 yrs and when you can no longer trust CDC, FDA, so called “experts” and you are FORCED by your government and/or employer to submit to a vaccine that is not effective and has more risks than benefits…it’s time to draw a line in the sand and so NO!
Why stop at medicine? How about the weaponization of energy, government, corporations, and on and on and on.
Excellent executive summary and a very smart analysis of what is currently happening on the world stage!
Based on your objectivity, I’m sure there is an interesting back-story on how you avoided getting sucked down in the hundreds of various rabbit-holes during the past year and a half.
It was enlightening to read an article that contains wisdom, knowledge and understanding!
As one well versed in terms of Science, & the scientific method I, for one, wholeheartedly agree with this article, and the author.
As a signatory & charter member of the 2014 Cambridge Working Group Call-to-Action on deadly American manufactured Gain-of-Function pandemic pathogens I, for one, can also assure the author that Sars-2-nCoV-19 is a deadly American manufactured Fourth Generation Biowarfare bioweapon purposely deployed against China’s Hunan Seafood Market post-Wuhan Military Games 2019 via an embedded IO withing the American contingent of athletes.

“The problem underlying all of this is not intellectual strength, it’s emotional strength. It’s not that people are stupid, it’s that they haven’t the strength to face unauthorized truth.”
Yes, but you’re only going halfway in your thinking. You are essentially blaming the victims here.
Speaking against authority or appearing stupid isn’t terrifying due to some sort of cowardice or character weakness, but due to the simple fact that those that would speak against authority seldom get a chance to speak at all in a place where they may get a reasonable amount of audience, and when they do get a tiny time slot to speak, they are terrified of blowing their tiny chance to get listened to again by saying the wrong things.
Power being wrong certainly calls too much into question. And what adds to the problem is that in uncertain times, the choice often is between following power when power is clearly wrong, and refusing to follow power and risking chaos, and neither of the choices is attractive.
As for admitting vs defending errors, the problem is one of people lacking the option to be flexible in what they say, and that happens when they either have tiny time slots to say it, or when they are trying to say it to such a broad audience, that they know it’s impossible to cover all the possible ground that the audience may need to hear, which leads again to super-simplified messaging as the safest option, because no nuanced messaging will ever be nuanced enough.
In short, it isn’t that people are weak. It’s that people are facing a task that is, if not impossible, pretty close to impossible.
