Response by Project Humanbeingsfirst.org to article on AFP: Rebuttal to Stephen Lendman's Vaccine Hysteria by James Secor, September 17, 2009
I imagine that the purpose of the plethora of 'against the grain' analyses by many a courageous people, of the WHO determined "pandemic", whether it is deemed by them to be primarily:
a) a secret "mandemic" (man-made epidemic for population reduction);
b) a secret "psydemic" (psy-ops epidemic, a psychological conditioning of the public with 'sky is falling' to create a boogieman for quite another agenda using a real deadly biowarfare trigger, just like 911 was the real deadly trigger for launching "imperial mobilization" in response to the "new pearl harbor");
c) genuinely the "swidemic" (a naturally occurring as in the pig, or manmade as in the lab, swineflu viral infection for which vaccination may or may not be useful primarily depending on the question of the medical efficacy of the vaccine in question, and for some, the very concept of vaccination, the agenda in either case largely being driven by the unbridled profit motivation of bigPharma);
d) or a combination of all the above, with the overarching agenda not being what is publicized;
is mainly to endeavor in unraveling it all in the best public interest. Some of course may be the proverbial "COINTELPRO" agents to spread disinformation, but let's ignore that bunch here.
I don't speak for the courageous author Steve Lendman, nor have I ever met him, but his more than half a dozen essays on swine flu touch upon one or more of the aforestated items, and I presume largely in the public interest. Sometimes one aspect is taken in isolation, as this present article which aimed to challenge the dangers of both vaccines and vaccination (item c above), and other articles on his website touch on other aspects.
Most 'against the grain' analysts, credentialed with medical degrees or laity (like this lowly scribe), I imagine are really spending time on this matter because of fear of immediate impact on our peoples and upon those whom we love, and want to know how to protect from this new scourge. We often searchingly ask: should we follow the wisdom of the CDC, WHO, NIH, EU equivalents, and big Pharma, of conventional practice of medicine and the advice of our mainstream doctors, or should we use some commonsense, some rational wisdom, some study of the hectoring hegemons tactics and ideologies, and some history to guide us?
We are certainly not perfect in our analysis, and the risk-analysis we do is laden with ambiguities and uncertainties because we do not possess all the secretive information that goes into the decision making behind WHO's public pronouncements. So we try our best to connect the dots. I think Steve Lendman is only doing that, connecting the dots, perhaps a bit imperfectly as pointed out by the author, and I am sure that the author too in turn does so with the same motivation when he challengingly asks: “So, Mr. Lendman, what is it to be? A few failures, as it were, or hundreds of thousands of successes?”. Because I presume that we are all trying to make some sense of it all with the best of intentions and with our own limited abilities and short-comings, this is a gratuitous compliment: “Bad boy, Mr. Lendman.”
My summary conclusion on this pandemic lays it out thusly, and I believe no one will have trouble with this conclusion or how it was derived except the big Pharma, and the ideological interests pushing the vaccines. And this conclusion is the bottom-line for me personally in the digital cacophony of analyses, rebuttals, claims, counterclaims, etc., all of which indeed make it all “look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality,”:
Bottom line: Avoiding vaccination for swineflu is commonsensical rationalism under the present circumstances!
