Parents in Washington state will no longer be able to claim a personal or philosophical exemption for their children from receiving the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine before attending a day care center or school under a measure signed Friday by Gov. Jay Inslee.
The state saw more than 70 cases of measles this year, and Inslee signed the bill at Vancouver City Hall, in the county where most of those cases were centered. The new law takes effect at the end of July.
Inslee said that while the bill was an important step in public health, he warned it doesn’t do “everything necessary to protect the health of our most vulnerable citizens.”
“We should be listening to science and medicine, not social media,” he said. “It is science and truth that will keep us healthy rather than fear.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that as of the end of last week, 764 cases of measles have been confirmed in 23 states.
Washington is among 17 states that allow some type of non-medical vaccine exemption for personal or philosophical beliefs. In addition, medical and religious exemptions exist for attendance at the state’s public or private schools or licensed day-care centers. Medical and religious exemptions remain in place under the measure passed by the Legislature last month.
Unless an exemption is claimed, children are required to be vaccinated against or show proof of acquired immunity for nearly a dozen diseases — including polio, whooping cough and measles — before they can attend school or go to child care centers….
Isn’t it interesting how socioeconomic systems spontaneously self organize from the grassroots, intergenerational flux of humanity into stable nodes of self-perpetuating institutions, which in turn self-organize into higher level intergenerationally self-perpetuating concentrations of power?
“They” created mass economic dependency on the state through decades of imposed impoverishment via the financial system, so that children no longer have stay-at-home parents. “They” wrecked the social structure of families and communities via circumcision and obstetrical abuse. “They” ditched the spectacularly successful and exceedingly cheap system of one-room-schoolhouses with multiple ages of kids teaching each other and synergizing their intelligence, creativity and social capacities and moved to the massively expensive, wasteful and degrading prussian style of mass indoctrination, imposed ignorance, alienation and learned helplessness. And now that families and children are utterly at the mercy of the whims of our dear leaders, “they” can forcibly inject kids’ bodies at will with whatever mysterious concoctions happen to pass the muster of our “regulatory” agencies and apparently nonexistent corporate “quality controls”.
Who are “they” you ask? The successive generations of the most toxic survivors of the previous iteration of self-perpetuating child abuse, those who most closely align with their own oppression. The system itself is in charge.
At each step, the tendency for collective auto-catalysis in random graphs creates new connections of mutual institutional synergy giving rise to higher levels of self-organization and grassroots dissolution. We are constructing the systems of our own deconstruction. But now the colonial frontier is at the permeable boundaries of our bodies, which constitute the foundation of the whole golden edifice, the feet of clay whose cracks are already showing.
This is a crazy patchwork tinker-toy machine malignancy, and a dying one at that. Protect your perfect children.
