Have you noticed how the pandemic has been essentially joyless?
Joy resides in consciousness. Although our sensory experiences can provide a trigger, joy is an inner experience that relies on our alertness. Much of pharmaceutical medicine is geared to reduce alertness and suppress experience. Sometimes painkillers are incorrectly prescribed as a means to hide symptoms rather than investigate the cause. You might be able to keep going, but your immune system will miss the necessary healing rest.
Curiously, the side effects of many modern medicines are often similar to the problems they are designed to treat. Prolonged use of morphine-like painkillers not only leads to addiction, but ultimately causes more pain. Addiction is characterised by a loss of control or choice—our conscious capacity to choose is reduced. During 2021, deaths from opioid overdose ran at over an unprecedented 100,000 in the USA alone.
Impairment of consciousness is not limited to painkillers. A study by researchers in Massachusetts institutions including Harvard Medical School published a few days ago found that antibiotic use in mid life leads to cognitive impairment in later life.
Antidepressant use is associated with increased risk of suicide. Steroid use can lead to confusion and delirium. Blood pressure medication can be associated with depression and sleep disruption, and so on.
So have medical authorities earned the right to mandate pharmaceutical interventions and override personal medical choice?
mRNA vaccination exposes our physiology to the same toxic spike protein as Covid infection, in even greater quantities. No wonder that the vaccine has an alarming range of neurological adverse effects including some associated with the brain/physiology interface.
It is immediately obvious that our physiology is intimately connected to our consciousness—our sense of psychological well being and joy. The relationship between consciousness and physiology is delicately balanced and easily upset by medication. The common side effects of drugs result in a loss of control over everyday life.
Is greater control the hidden agenda of the pandemic?
Do you spend time like me wondering how it happened that the government, media, the pharmaceutical industry, big business, and the medical establishment took common cause during the pandemic? What binds them together so closely? All of the parties to the pandemic have a mission statement to control the public:
- The government wants to sway public opinion in their favour.
- Mainstream media are busy helping them to mould public opinion.
- Take a masters in business education, and a major focus is how to influence customer choice by any and all means.
- The pharmaceutical business relies on a PR machine that reaches into and greases the wheels of every corner of society. This year’s Oscars were proudly sponsored by Pfizer for example.
- Medical practice is intimately linked with pharmaceutical companies. There are gold standard prescriptions which doctors must follow. If they deviate, they may lose their licence to practice.
There is a certain immorality in the massive business of persuasion this involves. Jockeying for position during the pandemic, strange bedfellows have imagined that they share a common cause and acted to maximise each other’s financial, political, and professional advantage. As we have found out, it is a short step from persuasion to fear, misinformation, coercion, and even tyranny.
The practice of deception is inherently devoid of kindness and also devoid of joy. The closure of rational debate and the removal of legal liability has brought out the worst in the protagonists, who are acting like playground bullies, leading to draconian legislation removing human rights, media misinformation, and obscene pharmaceutical profits.
When it comes to getting ahead, don’t rock the boat. A friend of ours is a radiologist, she was in the hospital canteen and overheard three doctors talking at the next table. They were telling each other that there was no way they would have their children vaccinated. They were worried about rates of myocarditis. So this is the joyless psychology of the pandemic: it’s OK to inject someone else’s children with an experimental gene therapy. If you speak up you might lose your job, so mums the word.
New Zealand Epidemiologists blow their own trumpet
The long term effects of mRNA vaccination are still unknown, but an article in the UK Guardian newspaper yesterday entitled “New Zealand’s Covid strategy was one of the world’s most successful – what can we learn from it?” by NZ epidemiologists Michael Baker and Nick Wilson spelled out how important it is to blow your own trumpet during the pandemic. They emphasised New Zealand’s achievements including:
- leadership that listens to the science
- use of the precautionary principle in the face of uncertainty
- creating legacy benefits for our healthcare and public health systems
- the team of five million building consensus
- the role of government control, including better surveillance
I realise that the Guardian is a long way removed from New Zealand and may not be in position to evaluate articles submitted from the antipodes. I thought a small amount of translation may help them.
Leadership that listens to the science
The best approach is to fund science directly through Te Punaha Matatini so that they can tell the government what they want to hear such as: herd immunity and vaccine adverse effects are a conspiracy theory.
Use of the precautionary principle in the face of uncertainty
Ignore Pfizer’s safety guidelines, our government insisted that even if seriously injured by the first dose, you must still get the second jab.
Creating legacy benefits for our healthcare and public health systems
Where are these actually? The government spent $64 billion of borrowed money on its pandemic response but couldn’t spare any money to upgrade hospitals. It also sacked highly qualified unvaccinated staff.
The team of five million building consensus
If you didn’t want to be vaccinated, you faced loss of employment and social isolation.
The role of government control, including better surveillance
Need I say anything about this?
Baker and Wilson didn’t mention the 100’s of millions of dollars spent propping up uncritcal media, the unprecedented level of mRNA vaccine adverse effects running at 30-50 times higher than before, or the loss of small businesses and our tourism industry.
The psychology of the pandemic requires a lot of trumpet blowing all round, but not a lot of listening. Telling us that it has all been for the greater good, when actually it is an experiment with an unknown outcome, is nonsense. It has left us all shell shocked and facing an uncertain future. The government is still crudely stoking the fear factor full steam with saturation advertising promising dreadful variants and dire consequences for the unboosted. Not a single politician has called for rational debate.
So who will we vote for in 2023? Well we do not know, it will be Hobson’s Choice. All parties have worked together as the harbingers of doom and gloom helping blanket the nation with the joyless propaganda of fear. But we can change the narrative, we don’t have to follow blindly. It is up to us.
