"Von Mises. Now he was a true Austrian economist."
Many an unsuspecting dinner guest have been treated to an impromptu lecture about economics by my beloved husband, Dave. Along with fast cars, Harleys and the White Sox, economics tops the list of my husband's most ardent passions. Let's just say when he gets started on Keynesian economics - the theory that government intervention in the free market is necessary to stimulate economic growth - I start floating around the table filling everyone's wine glass to the brim. He detests, abhors, and generally reviles this school of thought because of it's lack of transparency and it's proliferation of the false notion that the government knows what is best for the people. Of course, it could work, if the government were actually comprised of the people. It is not. It is comprised of exceedingly wealthy bureaucrats, special interests and corporations. People as individuals, do not exist within the constructs of our current government. Keynesian economics caused the housing crisis. It causes stagflation, inflation, and every other -ation you can think of. For instance, vaccin-ation. The survival of the corporate entity is KEY (KEY-nesian) in order to support Keynesian principles. The survival of the individual (the citizen), is irrelevant.
While we never hear the phrase Keynesian economics bandied about in the mainstream media (except for Bloomberg) it is the philosophy that keeps Washington operational. False stimulation of the market is the solitary premise upon which all our current policies are formed. Everything from repairing roads that don't need fixing (creating jobs) to fighting wars on foreign soil (wars that no one invited us to partake in, in the first place), has it's foundation and justification in Keynesian thought.
False stimulation of the market has given us insurmountable national debt, rampant poverty, joblessness (unless you want to move overseas), unprecedented foreclosure rates, subsidized farms, excessive waste, fake food and untested preventative medicine.
False stimulation of the immune system gives us chronic illness. Chronic illness is KEY for corporate profits. Chronic illness is spectacularly lucrative for the GPD (government/pharma/doctor) Alliance. They are uber-fans of Keynesian theory. False stimulation of the immune system also gives us the propagandized notion of a protected "herd". This is a wildly publicized and successfully promoted but false notion. In reality the live viruses we've been injecting into our toddlers can shed and infect other children and adults with weakened immune systems. Ergo the oft reported outbreaks of vaccine preventable illness in vaccinated populations. That's right, GPD, the retro hippie parents that live on the corner of town who give talks about raw milk at the local library cannot be blamed for every single pertussis outbreak in the continental U.S. This theoretical herd protection goes by another name. False comfort. Notice the common theme here?
False, false, false, false false.
We're tricking the economy.
We're tricking the immune system.
When the government encourages consumers to use their credit cards to buy things they want but cannot afford, it stimulates the economy. Like when they pay off a $1,000 flat screen that ends up costing them $2,500 with interest.
When the government encourages parents to vaccinate their children it stimulates their immune system. They may not manifest chicken pox as children, but they get a killer case of shingles in their 30's. They might not get HPV, but darned if they don't get Tourette's and a nasty bout with seizures. They may not get pertussis, but they end up with an inhaler and maintenance meds for life. If you think I'm venturing into dangerous territory have a look-see at the MSD sheets and package inserts for these miraculous preventative medicines. Very telling. And the kicker is, our little ones might get vaccinated and still get the very disease they were vaccinated against. Happens a lot! This is the parents fault for delaying the schedule, being old, blue-eyed, freckled, financially successful or having eaten a green M &M on the third Friday of Lent while thinking sinful thoughts.
Let's take it a few steps further...
If charging a little bit is good charging a lot is better! Now that family with the flat screen can get a new car, maybe a boat, and take a few vacations. They should have their debt paid off by 2055. Mom and dad can retire at the age of 107. Good for the government, bad for mom and dad. Too bad, so sad.
If some vaccinations are good, lots and lots must be better! Super swell. As in, an epidemic of swelling, aka, inflammation, that according to the CDC's own statistics is affecting the lives of over 50% of our children. For some kids it's brain swell, autism. For some kids it's joint swell, painful juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. For some it's intestinal swell, severe bowel disease. For some, it's bronchial swell, asthma. For some, it's all of these systems swelling spontaneously. Death. Often called SIDS. Unless of course, it happens right there in the hospital within seconds of the vaccine being administered. Then it is unmistakably obvious. Nurse's error.
Our government says everything is fine. But, you are on the verge of financial ruin and your family is going under. Lawmakers aren't sure what you want them to do for you. You vote. You pay taxes. You are ignored.
Our pediatricians say everything is fine. Your previously healthy child is terribly ill with strange behaviors and your doctor tells you to go to a government run agency known as Early Intervention to figure out what's wrong. You are essentially ignored by your pediatrician. "Let me know what they have to say when you come in for his next round of shots!" He shouts on his way to see his next patient for 3.5 deeply meaningful minutes. More often than not he can't keep your kids' names straight. But he knows what shots they're missing, for sure.
You head over to Early Intervention for answers and learn there is no medical personnel on staff there. You are perplexed. Why would I bring my sick kid here? They do nothing more than identify and categorize behavior. This is where sharp parents - aka thinking moms - discover the GPD Alliance is not interested in medically treating autism until they can figure out how to profit from it. It's going to be up to you. Until then, they will send you to the agencies they have created to evaluate the severity of the damage they have done. If they were seriously considering caring for individuals with autism they would surely have devised a nationally accepted medical standard of care that every hospital would have adopted by now. It's been decades folks! DECADES! Instead, they tell you billions of dollars are going to important research to find that pesky autism gene! Doggone they'll find that sneaky bugger. If it takes them zillions of billions of your hard earned dollars! They'll find a way!
EI says, "Hey I know you must be devastated with little Sammy's diagnosis that's not really a diagnosis because we're not really doctors but would you consider contributing to genetic autism research today? I can't say what I think he has because I'm not a doctor but lots and lots of kids have it. It's everywhere. Hint, spinning objects...early diagnosis...you'll have to see a pediatric neurologist to confirm it." wink wink
Side note: Writing a check or walking for genetic autism research is like feeding a hundred dollar bill to a goat. He's gonna eat it. Eventually that beloved Benjamin that was once yours will end up fertilizing something. Most likely some GMO corn. The work on the genetic predisposition for autism has been done. God bless the poor GPD, they haven't figured out how to enterprise on it yet. Furthermore, the science the GPD doesn't want you to see that indicates their cash cow vaccines can and do cause all these incredibly complex medical problems is in the Chauan's book. The problem is metabolic and methylation issues cannot be easily remedied with pills. Same with mitochondrial disease and measles infested intestines. When there's no easy fix and no immediate financial gain, it's much easier to promote the search for the ever elusive gene. It's the pot of gold, my friend. And the gatekeepers of this theory are real live leprechauns! You do not question the leprechauns and walk away unscathed.
Falsehoods sure do promote major disconnects don't they? My point with this Keynesian rant is that a privileged few with a vested interest are determining what is good for all. Only, all...is them. Not us. They are lying -but, it's cool - because they make the laws. Lying is perfectly legal when you are the lawmaker...and the judge...oh, and the jury. Killing children is alright too, as long as the taxpayers assume the damage.
Keynesian economics and preventative healthcare - all for the good of the herd - at the expense of the individual. Systems the GPD and leprechauns remind us we should be thankful for everyday - via their mouthpiece - the mainstream media. Tell me, do you feel protected, honored and valued by these praised and popular systems? Let me know.
