Scientists (and thus science) are threatened in four central areas of human existence – agriculture, health, environment and peace. The threat comes from multinational corporations seeking absolute control over world resources and political power through national laws and international treaties based on false or incomplete science.
Industry’s dilemma is that their products are harmful and yet they need them sold. Originally, industry attempted to solve this by promoting their products as beneficial to mankind and safe. But scientific research has shown both are untrue. Efforts to silence that research proved insufficient since people were increasingly aware of the dangers and began seeing the consequences.
At this point, industries shifted to using fear of catastrophe to sell their products perhaps expecting that urgency would override the proven negative effects on mankind (such as suicides of farmers in India) and safety issues. So, for instance, “climate ready” seeds (patented GMO seeds) are now being pushed as an urgent solution to climate change.
Scientific research not only continued exposing the dangers of corporate manmade products but caused a second problem. By contrasting the natural world’s to industry’s products, scientists inadvertently created reassurance about nature’s health, abundance, and resilience (to say nothing of a growing commitment to it). That reassurance undercut industry’s necessary element of fear.
Industry has been forced to move into more totalitarian measures in collusion with government, which now simply writes laws which give it power to destroy its competitors and that mandate industry’s openly unwanted products. Meanwhile, it continues to do all it can to silence scientists who undermine industry lies and desired fear. The truth about industry’s toxic products and its competition, nature, is directly threatening to industry’s continued existence.
Below is a list of major areas of science in which scientists are being threatened, the fear being used to promote products or actions, what the corporations have to gain, and what is at stake.”
1. Agriculture and food safety
Fear: Starvation worldwide and death from contaminated food.
What is potentially gained through that fear?
Introduction of GMOs despite rejection by farmers, elimination of threat from local farming and local food supplies, control over food worldwide, ownership of nature at the level of DNA, mandated products and processes, permanent control over prices and profit, political control (the Kissinger plan: control food/control people).
Genetic engineering, including its companion product, pesticides, gives insight into what scientists have faced for telling the truth. Arpad Pusztai was released from the Rowett Institute after 35 years and silenced with threats of a lawsuit. His research team was disbanded “after reporting the dangers from GMOs though his work is valued by other scientists. Ignacio Chapela was threatened and denied tenure for exposing the crossover of genes from GMO corn to normal corn. ‘I am living proof of what happens when biotech buys a university. … Corporate biotechnology is killing this university.’”
Meanwhile corporations have been judged guilty in courts for false claims about product safety. “France’s highest court has ruled that US agrochemical giant Monsanto had not told the truth about the safety of its best-selling weed-killer, Roundup. The court confirmed an earlier judgment that Monsanto had falsely advertised its herbicide as “biodegradable” and claimed it “left the soil clean”.
In the US, pesticide studies were “flawed by conflict of interest, failure to meet ethical standards established by the Declaration of Helsinki, unacceptable informed consent procedures, inadequate statistical power and inappropriate test methods and end points. All studies were funded by pesticide manufacturers, and all ethics committees responsible for approving the study protocols were part of the contract research organizations paid by the company to conduct the studies …”
Political efforts to make use the corrupt tests followed. Corruption of science is not new, nor only in the area of pesticides. Industry studies used in support of GMOs “contradict well established scientific principles. Chief among their [Pusztai and Seralini’s] concerns are the ways Monsanto explains away statistically significant effects.”
Lying about food safety “science,” Clinton promoted HACCP, a program in which governments actually withdraw from inspection in favor of company-based inspection and turning US sovereignty over food safety to the corporations running the WTO. The 2009 “food safety” bills harmonize agribusiness practices to implement corporate global governance. “Food safety” is a “con job.” The “festering fraud” behind “food safety” reform gives yet more evidence of the distortion of science used to further corporate interests.
Media promotes fear of food shortages and corporate GMOs as the solution, without reporting studies that show organic farming can well feed people, and with no harm to their rights or the environment.
Upshot: Human access to food is at stake. Local food is safe food and outside the corporate food system, providing industry no profit, so corporations must get rid of local farmers and other independent sources of food, and eliminate access to all unpatented, uncontrolled food, seeds, animals, nutrients.
Fear: Vulnerability to disabling or deadly diseases and catastrophic numbers of deaths from infectious ones
What is potentially gained through that fear?
Demand for patented, synthetic corporate products, hoped-for power to mandate them and to eliminate competition from natural, cheap unpatented products, and massive control worldwide under the guise of health.
False studies are done, including those that appear to intentionally devalue vitamins, the FDA allows criminally convicted doctors and researchers to keep working on pharmaceutical and clinical trials which fail to monitor for safety, and suppresses information about entirely safe natural alternatives to drugs though the drugs are killing thousands each year.
In one of the most extreme examples, fear of HIV/AIDS has been promoted thus creating a huge market in drugs worldwide, but the science it has been based on excluded many dissenting voices who said the link between HIV and AIDS has never been established while it is known that antiretrovirals destroy immune systems. The concern is that people diagnosed with HIV may be developing AIDS from ARV drugs. And though many people cannot afford ARVs, “fear, intimidation, and terror that operate at all levels of AIDS, including among the scientists themselves, … prevent rational discussion of alternatives to the HIV/AIDS model and the use of highly toxic [and expensive] chemotherapies as Western medicine’s standard treatments for AIDS.”
Groups funded by the pharmaceutical industry are blocking efforts to test unpatented, inexpensive alternatives. In all this, epidemiological scientists attempting to offer work showing that AIDS may have come from the polio vaccination campaign in the Congo were shut out. Media did not give attention even to the admission by a Merck vaccine chief that Merck vaccines are responsible for the AIDS epidemic in the US as well as being loaded with viruses and cancers. Scientists attempting to provide scientific data that supports other than corporate sales are attacked as AID “deniers.”
“Why have we as a society been so quick to accept a theory for which so little solid evidence exists? Why do we take proclamations by government institutions like the NIH and the CDC, via newscasters and talk show hosts, entirely on faith?”
Though pandemics fit under health, they deserve special attention here because they are a new and major area of fear, with government agencies projecting the death of millions, instilling terror that pandemics from human and animal contact can strike at any moment.
What is potentially to be gained from such fear?
Billions in worldwide sales of vaccines have already been collected but this fear provides more than profits. It comes with loss of human rights at a level never seen except in fascist countries, with a mandating of untested, unknown vaccines, which can deliver of RFID microchips, can cause illnesses, can sterilize or kill targeted populations, and can provide an instantaneous and endless health pretext for corporate control over all people through the WHO and UN.
From the WHO 2005 declaration (excerpted):
“Under special pandemic plans enacted around the world including the USA, in 2005, national governments are to be dissolved in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees, which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country, and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and UN in North America.
The “origin” of the H1N1 flu is subject to question. Bush’s administration spoke of H1N1 vaccines five years before H1N1 emerged [8 min. video], the CDC’s numbers on the flu have been extremely exaggerated, reporters have been denied public information by the CDC even using FOIA, and the WHO has manipulated the data.
Meanwhile, an internationally recognized microbiologist with a specialty in vaccines and drug testing questions the biology of vaccination itself, many, many scientists question the safety of the H1N1 vaccines. Legal complaint(s) against the vaccines have been filed or are being contemplated, which expose the lack of science behind them. The notion of the pandemic is itself challenged along with some asking why the public health response to the flu has been “alarmist.” Others have suggested the US flu death figures are “more PR than science.”
This is occurring against a background in which leading political figures say the CDC has covered up the vaccine link to autism, research investigators have asked about the link between vaccines, bioweapons and artificially created pandemics, and many microbiologists working on vaccines have died or are missing.
Upshot: Because natural substances are non-toxic, can keep people healthy and heal them, and there is no profit to be made from those unpatented substances, good health is deadly to the pharmaceutical industry. So, the corporations must stop access to natural health supplements, get rid of practitioners, and shut down nutritional information. Hitler, funded by IG Farben, the huge pharmaceutical industry of its day and parent to Baxter, Sanofli Pasteur and BASF, made passing of nutritional information punishable by death. Right now, during a supposedly life-threatening pandemic, though some people cannot take the corporate vaccines in any case, the FDA (under the control of the pharmaceutical industry) has warned health stores and websites that they may not even use the words “flu” or “cold.”
3. Climate Change
Fear: The end of civilization itself
What’s to be gained?
Corporate control over all industry and resources for energy, and taxes to fund a world corporate power via the UN.
There has been difficulty in even questioning the science and looking at its range of implications while reputable scientists have been shut out [10-min video], and called “deniers.” And yet, a new report shows that “moves to stop global warming are devastating tribal people,” the very opposite of what is desired by those hoping such moves will save people and nature.
Some have proposed that Earth is in a natural warming trend (long view), while others believe the last several years of cooler temperatures will continue thru 2030. Yet, in the name of anthropogenic climate change, corporations are making one profitable move after another, as with the cap-and-trade scheme.
The upshot: Because the world is waking up to the damage industrialization has done to nature and is connected to it and wishes to help, and because the solutions people offer (solar, wind, water, conservation, etc.) would leave industry without dependent customers, but with free people helping the earth recover, industry must take control of all energy sources by creating massive fear of the end of civilization in order to try to get people to support an international treaty that supposedly will solve things, but in fact locks people into dependence on and funding of international corporate control.
4. Nuclear science
Fear: That Iran has the potential to attack with WMD
What is potentially to be gained from such fear?
Pretexts for invading or destroying other countries, and quelling of dissent for promotion of global industrial expansion.
Many are now aware that Bush officials outed CIA agent, Valerie Plame, after her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, reported evidence discrediting Bush’s premise for invading Iraq. But many may not be aware of the recent death of a UN scientist working on Iran’s nuclear capability from a 17 floor “plunge” which has been ruled “not a suicide.” “Under a year ago, an American died at the IAEA in strikingly similar circumstances, his body being found at the bottom of a stairwell.”
Upshot: It is not known what this research was showing about Iran, but the US had previously intended to stage a false provocation to attack Iran for access to its oil reserves and now may be trying to “kill” information on Iran’s harmlessness which would undercut any plans to attack them.
5. ? Economics ?
While it is not listed here as a science, economics has also faced the total exclusion of respected economists promoting other than a neoliberal (corporate) model. That corporate model has now brought the world to economic and environmental ruin.
Upshot: People see what has occurred and want local and state economies and national sovereignty over currency which are at odds with the international bankers setting up a single world currency and monetary control.
If one sees economics as the fifth area of scientific distortion and exclusion, then one sees the impact extends to corporate control over the most basic things in the world needed for survival – food, health, environment, war decisions and economies.
The pattern for corporations:
- Establish fear of nature and of other people
- Distort science to hype fear
- Distort science to push “corporate solutions”
- Use Media for constant reports of impending disaster
- Use Media to promote corporation-profiting proposals
- Threaten independent scientists
- Attack anyone disagreeing as “deniers”
It is not surprising that scientists have had trouble reporting problems with corporate products (pesticides, GMOs, drugs, etc.), but they have also had trouble reporting on positive things which counter fear:
a) There is no reason for fear about the earth’s ability to feed the world’s populations;
b) That nature can be depended on to provide health and heal people;
c) That local farming provides a safe source of food;
d) That certain activities (WMDs in Iraq) are not happening;
e) That the swine flu pandemic is not a threat; and
f) That devastating climate change may not be happening.
While many may fear the leaked climate change emails threaten the world’s ability to stop harm to the earth, the opposite may be true. Exposing the false science behind climate change could be one of the most significant moments in natural and political history.
Why? Because corporations attempting to take control over food, land, health choices and needs, environment, natural resources, and economies through fear and distorted science, were just exposed. A huge fiction leading to even more damaging corporate projects was just ripped open. And now all kinds of solutions which reject fear can flow in, including all the small scale human and local solutions that corporations have worked so hard to debunk as inadequate such as organic farming, renewable energy, etc.
What is needed is not less of this but much more. It is time for truth telling and an outpouring of exposure of the distorted science and facts corporations have been using for the last many years – in every area. (The 9/11 investigation would certainly fit in with this, since architects and pilots have come forward with science to prove the fallacies of what people were told, and the fear was used to take the country to war for huge corporate advantages. So would the WHO and UN saying they care about people in the third world while surreptitiously and thus criminally sterilizing them with vaccines).
The areas listed above are all serious, but the pandemic needs immediate attention. Bush and Cheney established everything related to this pandemic starting before 9/11 and may have even bioengineered the virus, which is being used justify the legal, bureaucratic, financial, political, and military control they set up, even at the international level.
Note that the pandemic is coinciding with global financial collapse. “Pandemic preparedness” provides the legal framework for martial law as the country is being taken apart financially. The pandemic laws give power to control anyone, group or section of the country who dares to resist, all under the guise of a “health emergency” or “outbreak” that is scientifically questioned.
The pandemic is more significant than the war on terror in its implications for totalitarian control and potential deaths anywhere.
Under the terms of MSEHPA (Model State Emergency Health Powers Act), after declaring a “public health emergency” [for which there is no criteria – that is, terror with no science at all to back it up], without consultation with public health authorities, law enforcement, the legislature or courts, a state governor or anyone he/she decides to empower, can, among many other things:
- Require any individual to be vaccinated. Refusal constitutes a felony and will result in quarantine.
- Require any individual to undergo specific medical treatment. Refusal constitutes a felony and will result in quarantine.
- Seize any property, including real estate, food, medicine, fuel or clothing, an official thinks necessary to handle the emergency.
- Seize and destroy any property alleged to be hazardous. [This appears to be a disguised gun sweep.] There will be no compensation or recourse.
- Draft you or your business into state service.
- Impose rationing, price controls, quotas and transportation controls.
- Suspend any state law, regulation or rule that is thought to interfere with handling the declared emergency.
Because vaccine scientists have died, and because extreme distortion of science around the pandemic and vaccines can lead to the most dire political control, three things need to happen immediately:
1. Every human rights, health, science, political and social group in the country needs to publicly reject forced vaccination under ANY circumstances;
2. People in each state need to immediately demand the nullification of the Bush Cheney MSEHPA laws, replacing them with the previous democratic, caring, non-militarized public health measures (including home quarantine); and
3. People across the political spectrum need to demand an investigation into the CDC lies, the theft of billions (again) from the American people for unneeded vaccines, the origin of the virus, the connection of the pandemic laws and virus to pharmaceutical industry and to the Bush administration.
