The one lesson I hoped the left would learn from Trump

Posted by M. C. on October 14, 2020

Take the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, where the government lied to black men about giving them free medical care, and instead hid the fact that they had syphilis in order to watch the progression as the disease killed them over decades.

Only when people realize that the power of the government will always be abused, and used against them eventually, can we move beyond a strong centralized state.

And that is not to say smaller government’s can’t be oppressive– of course they can. The point in decentralizing power is that at least you have choice, and this choice alone creates a marketplace for better governance.

By Joe Jarvis

Since Donald Trump is apparently rushing a COVID vaccine to production in the hopes of reelection, can I assume that the left now opposes forced government vaccinations?

Since August, the percent of people who say they are likely to get the first generation COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it is available dropped from about 47% to 39% overall.

Republicans are still less likely to want a vaccine compared to Democrats, but everyone is now more skeptical of an untested government pushed vaccine.

Black Americans are about half as likely as White Americans to immediately want the vaccine.

And it makes a lot of sense for Black Americans to be skeptical of government mandated medical care.

Take the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, where the government lied to black men about giving them free medical care, and instead hid the fact that they had syphilis in order to watch the progression as the disease killed them over decades.

This went on until 1972!

And yet older Black Americans, who can actually remember when this happened, still think they can at least trust the Democratic Party.

Data from a poll conducted by the American University Black Swing Voter Project found that younger African Americans generally have less trust in both parties.

For example, 73% of Black voters in swing states over age 60 “Trust congressional Democrats to “do what is best” for Black people.”

Only 43% of Black swing state voters from 18-29 feel the same way.

Also interesting is that 29% of these 18-29 year old swing state Black voters “Trust congressional Republicans to do “what is best” for Black people.”

And only 8% of those over 60 feel the same.

I present this data only to suggest that younger Black Americans are less trusting of either party. Based on this data, overall 81% of Black voters over 60 trust a political party to help them, while only 72% of the youngest Black voters feel the same.

I see that as a good sign.

As long as the factions maintain bases that believe their party is righteous and good, we will continue to grow the power of the state, to the detriment of all.

Only when people realize that the power of the government will always be abused, and used against them eventually, can we move beyond a strong centralized state.

And that is not to say smaller government’s can’t be oppressive– of course they can. The point in decentralizing power is that at least you have choice, and this choice alone creates a marketplace for better governance.

That was my major hope for Trump all along– that he would make the big government folks realize the folly in growing state and executive power, only to have it hijacked by someone they despise– someone they truly believe is a danger to society itself.

Well, welcome to the club. We wouldn’t be in this mess if people realized everyone with near unlimited power is a danger to a functioning prosperous society– Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan too. And every one of them grew the power of the US government and the chief executive.

That is the genius of the two party system. I mean Trump has grown the government as much as the next guy, borrowing and spending more than any president in history, and expanding the already massive defense budget.

Both parties do everything they can to erase any semblance of state sovereignty, or states running their own affairs without federal intervention.

But since it is usually the Red states that have the most criticism for federal overreach, the fact that Trump targeted places like California and New York gave me hope that the left would wake up to the problem with a massive centralized government.

California, by itself the sixth largest economy in the world, could break free from the US federal government, and set the modern precedent that states can secede to form their own countries, better fit for the citizens of that area.

I certainly wouldn’t be moving to California the state or the country. But Florida as a country could be a hell of a good time, especially because it has no income tax.

And both of these states are pretty close to net neutral when it comes to federal funding. That means that taxpayers pay about as much to DC as they get back in federal spending. So divorce from DC would not have a huge impact.

Now let me get back to vaccines. This article isn’t really about vaccines themselves, I’m basically using trust in government vaccines as a stand-in for trust in government in general.

I’m not anti-vax– frankly I haven’t done enough research. But I assume some vaccinations have been very beneficial, and other carry more risk than reward. It would be absurd to believe vaccinations are 100% safe with no side effects. And the government should not be deciding the risk versus rewards for us.

But vaccine messaging actually shows us exactly how the government partners with corporations and the intelligentsia to control the narrative.

A Yale Study is already underway to test the best vaccine propaganda.

Sovereign Man had a good summary explaining:

Is guilt, self-interest, or anger the most effective way to convince people to get a Covid vaccine?

A Yale study will attempt to answer that question, by studying which message resonates most with the general population. It’s called Persuasive Messages for COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake.

There is no actual vaccine yet. But the study is already testing to see which method of propaganda will most effectively convince people to get a vaccine… whenever that happens to be.

The study will also measure how confident the propaganda makes people feel about a vaccine, and if it makes participants want to persuade others to take the vaccine.

Finally, researchers want to see if the propaganda produces fear in the unvaccinated, and how much social judgment it will cast on those who choose to remain unvaccinated.

Just in case you start to see a “spontaneous” groundswell of popular support for a brand new untested vaccine…

So forget if it is actually safe or not, the government wants to find out how to convince you it is safe– maybe with fear, or shaming, or trying to make you abandon all reason in favor of alleged “experts.”

And of course, the elite, the cabal, the government, the corporations– the mixture of these institutions which exerts control over society– they do this messaging with everything.

So if it isn’t obvious enough by now, let me spell out my point.

You shouldn’t trust one party or the other. You shouldn’t trust the government at all.

You should be a skeptic when it comes to other people trying to force you to do anything– especially when it means handing off more responsibility, and giving them more power over you life.

We know we cannot trust the current power structure. We know the pendulum of political factions will deliver nothing but more oppression, poverty, crime, and chaos.

There is really only one solution at this point, and that is taking matters into your own hands.

Because when you start ignoring the mass media and political theater, you realize the community around you, the people you interact with in real life on a daily basis are the ones that matter.

And if you aren’t in a good environment, put yourself in one. It’s 2020, you don’t have to be born and die in the same village.

And that is the power that people have today. The power to vote with our feet, to organize into groups of like-minded people, and more power than every before in the history of earth to put ourselves exactly into the community we want to be in, around the people we like most, in a jurisdiction that works best for us for taxes, regulations, laws, and so on.

It’s not perfect, and there needs to be far more choice when it comes to how societies are run. But this is how we get there, through individual action, not through the collective bullshit that the media, corporations, governments, and elite are trying to force on us.

Never let a good crisis go to waste is the mantra of the elites.

In tumultuous times, their tactics have extra potency. They reach for more power.

But this is also when the elite are most vulnerable.

By studying their tactics, you will be more prepared to guard against, and counter-attack the enemy.

The current crisis is being used to exploit the masses. But it also presents tremendous opportunity to take the power back, and reshape this world.

Society is entering a new period of transition, a struggle that will reveal the elites of the next generation.

Now is the time to seize your power if you intend to be among their ranks.

Tennis Star Novak Djokovic Concerned COVID-19 Vaccine May Be Mandatory – Collective Evolution

Posted by M. C. on April 23, 2020

More Robert Kennedy jr. than De Niro.

No sheeple is Novak Djokovic.

https://www.collective-evolution.com/2020/04/21/tennis-star-novak-djokovic-concerned-the-coronavirus-vaccine-may-be-mandatory/

In Brief

  • The Facts:Novak Djokovic recently said in a Facebook Live discussion that he faces a dilemma if a coronavirus vaccine becomes compulsory for players before they can return to competition., as he is opposed to vaccination.
  • Reflect On:Why does big media constantly ridicule those who have concerns about vaccine safety? Why not address the concerns they have instead of shaming them all the time? What is really going on here?

Special Note To Our Readers: We are concerned that our Facebook Page will be deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list.

Multiple mainstream media news sources continue to label those who question vaccine safety and those who support informed consent as “anti-vax” and “conspiracy theorists.” They seem to constantly use hate and ridicule instead of simply addressing and acknowledging the concerns that are being raised by many vaccine safety advocates. At the recent Global Health Vaccine Safety summit hosted by the World Health Organization, Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, recommended that we must forego name-calling with ‘hostile language’ such as “anti-vax”. She recommended encouraging people to ask questions about vaccine safety. After all, it makes sense–in order to make our vaccines safer and more effective, you would think everybody would be on board with constant questioning and examination, no?

She also emphasized how it’s not just people questioning vaccine safety, it’s also many doctors and scientists. At the conference, she stated that:

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers, we have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen… still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider, and if we lose that, we’re in trouble.

You can read more about the conference from us, and find a link to watch it if interested, here.

Scientists and doctors are even coming together forming organizations that support informed consent with regards to vaccines, and providing the science and evidence as to why more doctors, scientists and parents are becoming concerned. The Physicians For Informed Consent is one great example.

 

Novak Djokovic

The latest “big” name to make comments comes from tennis star Novak Djokovic. Vaccines have become such a controversial topic that we don’t see many people with a large following speak up about the concerns that surround them. This is probably due to the fact that they are subjected to large amounts of scrutiny from the mainstream media, just like we are seeing right now with Djokovic. He recently expressed his concerns regarding the coronavirus vaccine, which is still a long way away from being on the market.

According to ESPN,

Novak Djokovic said he faces a dilemma if it becomes compulsory for players to get vaccinated before they can return to competing, as he is opposed to vaccinations. “Personally, I am opposed to vaccination, and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel. Djokovic said in a live Facebook chat on Sunday with several fellow Serbian athletes. “But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision. I have my  thoughts about the matter, and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.”

Will the coronavirus vaccine be mandatory for people to travel? For people to play sports? In a recent interview, Bill Gates painted the picture that a vaccine that reaches the masses is the only solution to the new coronavirus. You can read more about that here.  Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,  did the same.

It’s no secret that vaccines are not completely safe for everyone, it’s clearly not a ‘one size fits all’ product, and that’s evident by the fact that nearly $4 billion has been paid out to families of vaccine injured children via the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

Not only has vaccine injury been a concern for people, but a number of studies have surfaced that question the efficacy of various vaccines. For example,  A new study published in The Royal Society of Medicine is one of multiple studies over the years that has emerged questioning the efficacy of the HPV vaccine. The researchers conducted an appraisal of published phase 2 and 3 efficacy trials in relation to the prevention of cervical cancer and their analysis showed “the trials themselves generated significant uncertainties undermining claims of efficacy” in the data they used. The researchers emphasized that “it is still uncertain whether human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination prevents cervical cancer as trials were not designed to detect this outcome, which takes decades to develop.”  The researchers point out that the trials used to test the vaccine may have “overestimated” the efficacy of the vaccine. You can read more about that here.

Here’s an article that goes more in depth into the science on why so many people now refuse the flu shot.

When it comes to measles, multiple outbreaks have been traced back to vaccinated individuals, and outbreaks have been found to partly be a result of the vaccine itself. For example, during the measles outbreak in California in 2015, a large number of suspected cases occurred in recent vaccinees. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the United States in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences. The media (Pharma-owned) generated high public anxiety. This fear mongering led to the demonization of unvaccinated children, who were perceived as the spreaders of this disease. Rebecca J. McNall, a co-author of the published report, is a CDC official in the Division of Viral Diseases who had the data proving that the measles outbreak was in part caused by the vaccine. It is evidence of the vaccine’s failure to provide immunity.  (source)

There have also been hundreds of deaths, and thousands of hospitalizations and permanent disabilities associated with the measles vaccine. You can read more about the measles vaccine here.

The Takeaway

At the end of the day, multiple concerns can be raised, and hundreds of studies can be looked at and hundreds of books can be written about this controversial topic. Is our consent for a mandatory coronavirus vaccination being manufactured? Should we force everybody to get it? Should we simply trust big media and federal health regulatory agencies without doing our research? Is it really right, ethical and moral for these agencies to enforce mandatory measures on us when there is evidence showing that it is not something that would benefit the whole, the way it is marketed to do so?

Are our rights and freedoms being taken away in multiple areas? Something to think about…

Alternative News Reasons Why Many People Refuse The Flu Shot: Facebook Has No Right Censor This Information

Posted by M. C. on December 5, 2019

https://www.collective-evolution.com/2019/12/03/reasons-why-many-people-refuse-the-flu-shot-facebook-has-no-right-censor-this-information/

By

In Brief

  • The Facts:Despite the fact that Facebook and other platforms like Google are censoring important information pertaining to vaccines, science is science and should be made freely available. Studies show that the flu vaccine is not really effective.
  • Reflect On:Why are terms like “anti-vax” and ridicule used by advocates of vaccines instead of simply addressing and countering the points made by vaccine safety advocates?

If you haven’t already heard, Facebook is censoring information and articles about vaccines that are “anti-vax” or information that in some way paint vaccines in a harmful light. This is extremely concerning, because there are a number of experts in the field, doctors and scientists, who have been publishing research in several peer-reviewed journals that do bring up concerns about vaccines. It’s simply facts, information and science, yet it’s still being censored which makes no sense.

Why is Facebook limiting the reach of posts and articles that are presenting peer-reviewed science and the view-points and research of medical health professionals and scientists? Is it because Facebook’s ‘fact checkers’ are funded by big pharmaceutical interests? An important question to ask. FakeNews watchdog NewsGuard aims to hold independent media accountable for their stories. Funded by Clinton donors and big pharma, with ties to the CFR, NewsGuard seems to have a clear agenda in favour of mainstream media. That’s one example, and  you can read more about that here. Why does mainstream media always use ridicule and terms like “anti-vax” instead of simply addressing and countering the concerns made by vaccine safety advocates, like the points presented in this article?

When it comes to the flu vaccine specifically, Dr. Alvin Moss, MD and professor at the West Virginia University School of Medicine emphasizes in this video:

The flu vaccine happens to be the vaccine that causes the most injury in this country. The vaccine injury compensation program, 40 percent of all vaccinations in this country are flu shots, but 60 percent of all the compensations are for the flu vaccine. So a disproportionate number of  vaccine related injuries are the flu shot. I think many of you it’s been recommended to you that you get the flu shot, I don’t know if you’re aware of the fact, the CDC statistics are, that every year they look at vaccine effectiveness, for this particular year the vaccine effectiveness is 48 percent, so that means it’s not highly effective. It’s not even all that effective, if you look at the scientific literature…the evidence to support giving the flu vaccine is moderate to weak. It is not strong evidence. They say the evidence to support giving the flu vaccine to people over the age of 65 is not there, it’s inconclusive. So a lot of the things we’ve been told as Americans about vaccinations are not really based on the science. (source)

Here’s a great video of Doctor Toni Bark, who has been the medical director for various departments and hospitals, explaining why vaccines are not a one size fits all product. Here’s another one of Dr. Mary Holland, who is a professor at New York University School of Law. This is evident when one examines the The National Childhood Vaccine Injury (NCVIA), because it’s already paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

If the numbers from VAERS and HHS are correct – only 1% of vaccine injuries are reported and only 1/3 of the petitions are compensated – then up to 99% of vaccine injuries go unreported and the families of the vast majority of people injured by vaccines are picking up the costs, once again, for vaccine maker’s flawed products. Furthermore, this act safeguards pharmaceutical companies from harm, meaning that they cannot be sued or blamed, nor held accountable for their productscausing injury. Therefore, vaccines are a liability free product that are being mandated on children, the manufacturers have no incentive to make a safe product.

What We Did As A Result of Censorship…

The Takeaway

We are living in an age where access to information is becoming extremely limited. Independent media outlets that present information and evidence, no matter how well sourced, are being blocked and threatened by social media platforms like Facebook and organizations like Google if the narrative threatens various corporate and political agendas. This censorship should serve humanity, and play a role in waking up even more people as to just how wrong this is, clearly, there are many people out there who are feeling threatened by organizations that share credible information that threatens their interests. At the end of the day, truth cannot be stopped and will continue to leak out on various topics. When it comes to vaccines, science, and the questioning of vaccine safety should obviously encouraged, and not shunned.
