Medicine has it’s own share of “indulgences” too, which most people don’t think about. Wouldn’t you think that modern medicine in all it’s TV swept up glory could have found a “cure” for the common cold by 2009? After all, it “knows” so much. It knows that a cure for a cold would make redundant billions of dollars in sales for the useless over the counter drugs alleged to ease the agony of a cold. Why do we hear, even today, that BECAUSE pharmaceutical medicine says it has no cures for measles, whooping cough, chickenpox, polio, Hepatitis B etc, that vaccines are the answer. A cure for any disease, would negate vaccines injected into every body on earth. When it comes to vaccines, wouldn’t you think that the medical profession, in 2009, could come up with something better than animal cells, toxic chemicals, untested adjuvants, and denatured bacteria, or viruses passaged through human amnion, dog kidney cells and a variety of other animal substrates? Why would you do that, when you can make yet another industry off the miseries from vaccines, while at the same time, cultivating the belief that these miseries have nothing at all to do with the vaccine?
Tell me. In the last 100 years, which chronic diseases has “modern medicine” definitively found the cause of, and come up with a cure? Zilch. Why would they want to do that? The ideas business plan is a ‘revolving door” business, where everyone makes something off every possible opportunity.
Of course the stock market shows that modern medicine is unfailingly recession proof. Why? Some people are scared of being sick or dying, so they will invest their money where their “faith” is. Those who know the plan, know that the plan is that there will never be any cure. There will only be an ever expanding industry, which creates diseases for all the drugs they want to sell.
Had a close look at the SIDS industry lately? SIDS “experts” annually fly around the world on a conference “circuit” racking up massive carbon footprints which they don’t pay for. They are feted and paid handsomely by big pharma. At these conferences, each “expert”… all with radically different theories … compete with one another to persuade each other, that “their” pet theory is somehow pre-eminent. The most “expert” of them all. Of course, the “competition” is muted, because if one is attacked, they all band together. If one person’s livelihood (gravy train) is placed at threat, so are they all. All articles attempt to be exclusive while trying to create some “consensus” doctrine. Again, the money is garnered by “red nose” days, and other fund raising, on the basis that “your baby could be the next one to die”
Yet, the most successful of all recommendations – to sleep babies on their backs and breastfeed – hailed as progress – only arose because the medical profession promoted bottle feeding as better, and front sleeping as better than back sleeping in the first place. In other words, their advice caused the very increases of SIDS deaths they say have been reduced by the "Back to sleep" campaign, and increasing breastfeeding rates.
Yes, the many faces of “indulgences”.
All of this is cause by the unthinking belief of the man in the street, that “experts” are the only ones who can provide the answers. That’s why indulgences of any sort are so well patronised.
A fool and his money, are soon parted. And those who refuse to part with theirs, will have it taken off them, one way or another.
For that is… the ultimate Plan.
