To underscore the importance of immunization in saving lives, and to encourage families to vaccinate their children against deadly diseases WHO is uniting countries across the globe for a week of vaccination campaigns, public education and information sharing under the umbrella of World Immunization Week. Worldwide collaboration provides an opportunity to boost momentum and focus on specific actions. – WHO Press Release
Dominant Social Theme: Vaccines are the best the Western World has to offer.
Free-Market Analysis: It began as a tiny drip-drip-drip when one of the Kennedys got angry and claimed in an article that vaccines had health consequences. And then there was the sad saga of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who had the temerity to link autism and gut disease to vaccines. You can see our articles here:
What we call the Internet Reformation – in honor of the Reformation that the Gutenberg Press helped cause – is gathering power regularly. How could it not? Too many people have learned too much from the Internet.
The famous Naomi Wolf had this to say in a recent Guardian piece on "Sexual Humiliation and Control": "I used to think the push [for power] was just led by those who profited from endless war and surveillance - but now I see the struggle as larger. As one Internet advocate said to me: 'There is a race against time: they realize the Internet is a tool of empowerment that will work against their interests, and they need to race to turn it into a tool of control.'"
This is what the elites have feared above all, that the intelligentsia would begin to turn on their prefabricated promotional memes. This is why the elites spent so much time and energy in the 20th century creating thought magazines such as the New Yorker, the Economist, the Atlantic, etc. ...
The intelligentsia is key to cultural domination. If you can get your best and brightest to voluntarily espouse your command-and-control societal themes, then your work is done for you. But now the intelligentsia is falling away.
This seems obvious to us. The alternative media itself is jammed with blogs and websites that provide alternative opinions to the phony narratives of entrapment that the power elite has cultivated especially in the past century.
Here at the Daily Bell, we track these dominant social themes that are used to frighten people into giving up power and control to the globalist institutions that are meant to run the world. We're not sure why the dynastic central banking families apparently want one-world government, but they sure seem to.
And while they're at it, they want control over our minds, habitats and above all, our bodies. Vaccines were a big part of that control. But this meme is falling to pieces.
Turns out, as we've documented, that vaccines were never double-blind tested, for "ethical" reasons. And that the statistics that brought vaccines into force were fudged.
And then there is the extraordinary persecution of Andrew Wakefield, who had the temerity to explain that SOME children might have bad reactions to vaccines.
It is malodorous and immoral for the medical profession to continue to pump children full of mercury and dead viruses (or live ones) when it knows collectively by now that a certain percentage of children will get sick from these vaccines.
On top of it, for anyone who examines the record without bias, the questions about vaccines and their efficacy are mounting daily. Just because the mainstream media – controlled by the same elites that own the large pharmaceutical companies – claim something is so doesn't make it true. Prove it, we say.
They don't, though. They won't. Maybe they can't. Instead, they launch propaganda barrages such as this new World Immunization Week. Here's some more from the WHO's press release:
Immunization is one of the most successful and cost-effective health interventions. It prevents between 2 and 3 million deaths every year. Immunization prevents debilitating illness, disability and death from vaccine-preventable diseases such as diphtheria, hepatitis A and B, measles, mumps, pneumococcal disease, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, tetanus and yellow fever.
The benefits of immunization are increasingly being extended to adolescents and adults, providing protection against life-threatening diseases such as influenza, meningitis, and cancers (e.g. cervical and liver cancers) that occur in adulthood.
And here's something from an Examiner article entitled, "Vaccine debate rages as National Infant Immunization Week approaches":
... National Infant Immunization Week - April 21-28 - is an annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants and children from vaccine-preventable diseases. This year it coincides with the first ever World Immunization Week (WIW), an initiative created by the World Health Organization to promote immunization and advance universal access to vaccination services.
Over the last few years, the debate over whether to vaccinate children or not has grown increasingly heated after a British study linked autism with the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine ... Public health officials are facing challenges as more parents are choosing to forgo immunizations out of concerns over the safety of the vaccines.
A study first published in 1998 in the medical journal Lancet by Dr. Andrew Wakefield concluded that there is a link between the MMR vaccine and the incidence of autism in children. Public health officials continued to assert that vaccines are safe and don't trigger health problems, but parents began opting out of routine immunizations. Last year, the British Medical Journal published a report that renounced the conclusions and called the study fraudulent. Officials point out that numerous other studies have shown no connection between the MMR vaccination and autism.
Public health officials have seen an increase in vaccine-preventable diseases, which they attribute to the growing number of children not receiving immunizations. Sporadic outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases have popped up throughout Europe and the United States, and in 2008, measles was deemed an epidemic in England and Wales. In 2010, a whooping cough outbreak in California cause over 9,000 infections, 800 hospitalizations and ten deaths.
The article goes on to tell us that in California there has been a dramatic drop in immunizations. What's been the response?
Yesterday, the Assembly Committee on Health passed a bill that would require licensed providers to educate parents about the risks of skipping immunizations. AB 2109, introduced by Assemblyman Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) would also require providers to sign an exemption form specifying that parent had been educated about the risks but still chose not to vaccinate ...
"If this becomes law, parents will no longer have the freedom of choice [to opt out]," said Dr. Robert Sears, a physician from San Diego. "The freedom of choice where someone needs to sign off on that choice is not freedom."
The unfortunate pattern of elite indoctrination has become clear over this past decade. When the promotions are exposed, the elites turn to increasingly Draconian legislation in order to basically force people to comply involuntarily.
Ultimately, this is not a viable solution. You can't force six billion people in a direction that they don't want to go. This is why the promotional elements of elite programs are so important and why they have such a big problem when these programs no longer work. Vaccines, increasingly, are a good example of this growing disconnect. The promotion – if that's what it is – is not working so well anymore.
Conclusion: The Internet is a process not an episode.
