The Medicinal Use Of Gaslighting For The Healing Of Institutional Trust [moviegique]


When I first read about Walter Duranty and the New York Times' handling of the Holodomor--in essence to do what we all agree is unconscionable with regard to the Holocaust--I asked people "Why is the New York Times still allowed to exist?" That is to say, here is an institution that covered for genocide (and more than once!), that never apologized (apart from a low-key "whoopsie" 70 years later on their website), which still purports to be the Source of Truth for the country (if not the world).

And setting aside the deaths of millions (much like the Times has), what is wrong with people that the paper is purchased, listened to, still even sets the topics of the day (which is, like, 80% of controlling the media)? Why do people allow it continue on its merry way instead of treating it like Life magazine after it glorified the Attica riots?

Which brings me to the topic of Gell-Mann Amnesia, and how it doesn't apply just to newspapers, as the CDC continues its denial of...well, just about everything. At issue today is their denial that they ever prohibited Ivermectin for use against Covid-19.

Y'know: Horse paste. You are not a horse, etc.

"They did not say it's prohibited or it's unlawful. They also did not say that doctors may not prescribe ivermectin," Isaac Belfer, one of the lawyers for the government, said during a Nov. 1, 2022, hearing in federal court in Texas.

No, they just publicly mocked anyone who disagreed, knowing that various official and unofficial organs at state and local levels would bring the hammer down, and crafting for themselves the exact level of "plausible deniability" our corrupt court system will use to get them off the hook. Which is the way our government works these days. (Y'know: Illegitimately.)

Much like the FBI, the Social Security Administration, and 99.99% of the US government, the FDA has no right to exist. The Constitution does not provide for the Federal government deciding who lives and who dies, who can eat what, and what the hell good medicine is. Worse, their actions (and inaction) have long been callous, evil and protectionist beyond the criminal dreams of any mafia.

Sharyl Attkisson does yeoman's work on her site, commenting on the stories of the past 20 years that have been buried by the mainstream media, like this one on babies being sacrificed in "reputable" medical studies.

But, of course, much like the intelligence agencies' colossal failure on 9/11, the FDA's repeated colossal failure and repressive actions will most likely be used to claim they were right all along, only underfunded. And the GOP will expand their power and budget, and tweet out the next day "Republicans believe in small government!"
