Bird Flu: Chicken Little Alert

Chicken Little alert? Hysteria could sap money from worse health threats

Hyping the exaggerated dangers of a pandemic bird flu potentially wiping out the human race is a profitable business for public health officials and drug companies eager to keep the public in a perpetual state of fear. Fear leads people to do things they ordinarily would not do if they were not running for cover.
Fear persuades politicians to vote for huge sums of taxpayer dollars to give to drug companies and government health agencies so they can collaborate with each other to create experimental pandemic flu vaccines. Fear persuades the people to allow themselves to be governed by new state and federal laws enacted since September 11, 2001 that will enable public health officials and politicians to use military force to arrest, quarantine and vaccinate citizens against their will with experimental vaccines that can kill or cripple them.

And when somebody dies or is crippled by the experimental vaccines they are forced to take after the Secretary of Health and Human Services declares an "emergency," nobody can be held accountable in a court of law: the drug companies making the vaccines, doctors injecting the vaccines, and the militia rounding people up at gunpont and taking them to places where they will be either quarantined or forced to get the vaccines are protected from liabilty by these new laws.
Manufacturing fear of microorganisms is a profitable but dangerous business in America. The civil liberties the M.D./Ph.D. fear mongers thave persuaded politicians to take away in the name of disease control will make America no better than the totalitarian governments in the world ruling their people with fear and oppression.

I have read many of your posts and I have to agree with you about vaccines. I am not an advocate of vaccines. I have a 4 year old who has not had any shots and he is as healthy as can be - maybe even healthier than average because he has not had shots. (??)
However, I get turned off by writers who talk about Americans being forced to get vaccinated at gunpoint. I remember when the small pox vaccine was looming several years ago and reading similar things from writers saying that we need to do something now or we would forced at gunpoint to get a smallpox vaccine. It seems to be paranoid thinking. Especially since it never came to fruition.
In your writings you talk about the public being scared so they will succumb to vaccines, but I think that saying we will be forced to vaccinate at gunpoint is similar behavior.
