The Spanish government has announced plans to eradicate alternative medicine such as acupuncture or homeopathy from health centres.
The proposal, unveiled by the science and health ministers, aims to avoid the “potential harmful effects” of the practices when they are used as an alternative or a complement to treatment that is itself based on “proof and scientific rigour”, the government said in a statement.
It did not make clear what it regarded as alternative medicine, but gave the examples of acupuncture and homeopathy. “Many people still believe that some treatments work despite there being no scientific proof available,” the statement said….
Of course “homeopathy” is a constructed straw man which is to encompass all non-eugenical medicine. It would be funny if it wasn’t so outrageous. The big lie has always been essential in controlling and milking the herd.
Is it necessary to point out that “scientific proof” as defined by our scyentifical authoritylike simulacrums is lacking because unfunded research is non-existent research. Where’s the profit in showing that sunshine (or vitamin D at about 10 times the RDA, more if you have dark skin) is essential in preventing respiratory illness? Does the sun have a lobby in washington? Do the people have a lobby in washington? Oh yeah, I guess it’s called congress. Oh well.
Ever hear of the term “human resource management”? Did you think it only referred to corporate personnel management? What do you think the war on families, the war on sex and joy, children and communities and food autonomy is all about? Milking. That’s it. You are a resource. Statistically speaking, you will be expended at about the time you become expendable. But the plan is that you’ll be glad to get out of here when the time comes anyway. Is that a conspiracy theory? No, that’s just real science as it’s really being applied today. Psychology, sociology, economics, biology and increasingly computer science all applied to the problem of the optimization of human resource exploitation, enabled and imposed via an intergenerational looping structure of trauma and ptsd-driven abuse. Think spontaneous self-organization. How could it be otherwise?
Scientific illiteracy is a tool of social control, but it’s mainly effective against those who have limited access to real (i.e. “organic”) food or traditional (i.e. “unscientific”) knowledge or traditional (increasingly outlawed) herbs or traditional lifestyles like spending quality time in the sun when they should be inside frantically sucking dopamine hits from their TV’s. This is why the breakup of the family is so important: older people have more access to such knowledge, and sometimes even have a willingness to think.
Somehow we’ve managed to return to a medieval economy with a “liberal” high tech overlay. “Science” is a the same old catholic church with the same old velvet glove concealing an increasingly modernized and dangerous iron fist. This is what happens when people become reliant on systems that they don’t understand, like debt-based money. “Give us your life and we’ll bestow tokens of our beneficence. And pay no attention to the barbed wire fence. It’s there for your protection.”
