History Repeating (2014, 2019): America's Nonstop Panic Over Nothing and Near-Nothing

As I said in 2014, a major part of why people are so fearful and vulnerable to political manipulation (general public) and marketing manipulation (doctors, nurses) is because they do not understand the process of viral infections and how to defend themselves intelligently. As such, the public cowers in fear when the media calls for panic, and doctors/nurses have no idea what to offer other than vaccines and anti-viral drugs.
The Proof is in the Panic: We Need a New Strategy against Viral Infections (December 10, 2014: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/proof-panic-we-need-new-strategy-against-viral-infections)
"The recent international outbreaks of viral infections have made one thing very clear: we need a new antiviral strategy in modern times to combat ongoing scourges of viral infections; pandemic spread of these infections in late 2014 is proof that the usual medical and public health measures of sanitation, vaccination, and medication are insufficient. The ideal antiviral strategy would be both generally and specifically effective, widely available, low-cost, with few or negligible adverse effects and drug/disease interactions. For most of medical and public health history, the tools used against viral infections have been sanitation and vaccination, with the more recent addition of molecularly-targeted antiviral drugs specific for each virus. My purpose in writing this essay is not to discuss or debate sanitation nor vaccination nor medication, but rather to point out several other intervention strategies that can be used additionally and to great patient and public health benefit. These evidence-based interventions have proven safety, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness with wide and immediate international availability and generally negligible adverse effects and drug/disease interactions.."

Of course everybody in the world is watching the vaccine hysteria that has overtaken the United States. Not surprisingly, people are now being threatened with jail and fines for being healthy, not vaccinated "sufficiently."
"New York County Bans Unvaccinated Kids From Public Places in Last-Ditch Attempt to Stop Measles Outbreak:
"A first-of-its-kind order in America barring children who have not been vaccinated for measles from public places took effect on Wednesday in Rockland county, north of New York City. ... Parents who violate it could face up to six months in jail or a $500 fine..."
This latest insanity has a political-financial rather than a scientific-medical origin just like we saw in 2014 with the media hysteria which was later clearly shown to be a lie.
"PolitiFact editors choose the Lie of the Year, in part, based on how broadly a myth or falsehood infiltrates conventional thinking. In 2013, it was the promise made by President Barack Obama and other Democrats that "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." While no singular line about Ebola matched last year’s empty rhetoric about health care, the statements together produced a dangerous and incorrect narrative."
“When combined,” PolitiFact writes, “the claims edged the nation toward panic. Governors fought Washington over the federal response. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention stumbled to explain details about transmission of the virus and its own prevention measures. American universities turned away people from Africa, whether they were near the outbreak or not.”
The American government no longer prioritizes the concerns, safety, and liberty of its citizens but rather gives clear priority and leverage to corporate interests, including the drug industry that wants to maximize profits by minimizing regulations, eliminating liability for faulty products, and legally mandating injections of drugs to a disease-free population to exponentially maximize profiteering even by bypassing scientific norms and completely usurping and disrespecting the physician-patient relationship, previously based on ethical principles such as "do no harm", patient autonomy, and informed consent.
"When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organised interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it."
"One Nation, Under Monsanto: In the United States everything is polluted. Democracy is polluted with special interests and corrupt politicians. Accountability is polluted with executive branch exemptions from law and the Constitution and with special legal privileges for corporations, such as the Supreme Court given right to corporations to purchase American elections. ... The soil’s fertility is damaged, and crops require large quantities of chemical fertilizers. The soil is polluted with an endless array of toxic substances and now with glyphosate, the main element in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide with which GMO crops are sprayed. ... Air is polluted with a variety of substances, and there are many large cities in which there are days when the young, the elderly, and those suffering with asthma are warned to remain indoors. ... All of these costs are costs imposed on society and ordinary people by corporations that banked profits by not having to take the costs into account. This is the way in which unregulated capitalism works."
So now, Americans have moved from "chronic fear" to "restricted freedoms" and overt censorship, including threats of fines and jail. No-one is coming to save you: not the medical profession (bought), media (bought), social media and interpersonal conversations (censored), politicians (paid by drug companies), nor police (paid and employed to enforce laws, even when those laws are written by drug companies and enacted into law by bribed politicians).
The medical profession is not going to save Americans from a pro-pharma freedom-limiting lie, because the medical profession profits from the lie: The medical profession could intervene and calm the situation down by reminding people that measles is a benign disease and that supplementation with vitamin A usually helps prevent the major complications. But since the American medical profession is owned by the drug companies, no one is speaking up to actually protect Americans.
The media/TV/news profession is not going to save Americans from a pro-pharma freedom-limiting lie, because the media profits from the lie via sales of advertising to drug companies: The American media such as television and newspapers could intervene and calm the situation down, but the media in the United States is owned by big corporations with direct and indirect ties to the drug companies – and of course everybody wants money from the drug companies in the form of advertising – so the media has supported the message that big Pharma wants repeated and that is that everybody needs vaccines.
Social media and "free speech" are not going to save Americans from a pro-pharma freedom-limiting lie, because bookstores and social media are censoring conversations about adverse events from vaccines and limiting access to anything other than the pro-pharma narrative: Some open conversations occur on social media but these are increasingly filtered and censored now that politicians have strong-armed supposedly open formats into blocking open conversation.
Politicians are not going to save Americans from a pro-pharma freedom-limiting lie, because many/most of them have been bribed by drug company "lobbyists" to pass laws and protections that serve the drug companies at the expense of citizen health and freedom: Imagine a political body that supports and protects commercial interests over the health, safety, and freedom of its citizens. What's the name for that?
"The U.S. government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country's citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern universities has concluded. The report, "Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens" (PDF), used extensive policy data collected between 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the U.S. political system. After sifting through nearly 1,800 U.S. policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile), and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the U.S. is dominated by its economic elite." https://www.businessinsider.com/major-study-finds-that-the-us-is-an-oligarchy-2014-4?IR=T
Fortunately, I published the antiviral nutrition protocol in 2014 and have made it available in an e-book as well as a printed paper book. I suppose that this protocol would be particularly valuable right now as clinicians and the general public are both searching for solutions to these "virus" problems. You'll note that the treatments in the book are all 1) sourced to peer-reviewed biomedical publications and 2) generally compatible for use alongside whatever antiviral drugs and "immunizations" one cares to use.
