VM -- Should Participation in Vaccine Clinical Trials be Mandated?, Jan 12 ... Virtual Mentor


I find it hard to believe this is genuine, but it seems to be. Already it seems mad progressives have 'progressed' from claiming ownership of your dead body, to discussing whether they can claim ownership of your live one. Did you ever read anything more chilling than the cold comparison between military conscription and being forced by law to submit to medical experiments;

In both conscription and obligatory trial participation, individuals have little or no choice regarding involvement and face inherent risks over which they have no control, all for the greater good of society.

Where does this 'society' evil end? And where do such people get their confidence that they are infallible judges of the 'greater good?'

Yes, they argue because the state pays for your health care (forgetting it is done with money they extort from you) it is moral for them to interfere with your lifestyle if they don't approve of how it affects you by costing them your money.

So booze, burgers and anything else will be taxed and/or a crime.

Perhaps making compulsory vaccine testing mandatory for all members of the medical profession is the ethical answer.

In Britain, I am sure that's true. The National Health Service did not nationalise healthcare, it nationalised our bodies. Since our personal choices affect our health, and since our health affects the costs of the NHS, the government and its astroturf chorus in fake charities and other lobby groups feel entitled to dictate them.

But this story is from the USA, land of the free and home of the brave!

Ta for the hat tip. Creepy, huh?

Shudder greatly.

I do wonder if the attitude is just where the welfare state gets to, sooner of later.

That is really a bit too much. It's starting to sound a bit like Jury Duty with much more unpleasant effects. And who is to blame if something goes wrong during these trials? The government? The companies running them? The doctors? Or yourself?

Eventually they'll have you blaming yourself.

Tom, I think that it comes under 'selective freedom of speech', one aided and abetted by a compliant (and dictatorial) political class, aided and abetted by a compliant (in their pocket) media.....
