Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center defends our freedom to dissent and writes about the new blacklist in America. She gives many footnoted references regarding how the right of the individual to one’s bodily integrity has been attacked by the new ruling class, and “extraordinary efforts by industry, medical trade and government to delegitimize free speech about vaccination unless it conforms with government policy has given a green light to corporate-owned mainline media outlets to use name calling and other yellow journalism techniques to legitimize the stripping of civil liberties from public health laws…”
She also provides a good comparison of what’s been happening now to the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s. But instead of someone “now or have ever been a communist,” it’s in reference to being “anti-vax,” even though many of the skeptics are not anti-vaccine per se, but are merely advocates of choice, the right to choose not to possibly be poisoned especially if one is already healthy.
If someone doesn’t want to take an unnecessary risk, then you leave him alone. That’s the American way of freedom. Healthy people who do not have a particular disease are not a danger to you.
