The élite in this country, still to this day, proudly speak out about the abundance of freedom that can be witnessed in the US; that every American has the freedom to choose their own path and that of their family’s. But what if I told you that was an illusion. What if I told you that the very illusion of that choice would burst if a given choice led an American family astray from the empire directive.
In this nation’s past, the golden rule of a physician was simple: as Sir William Osler famously said,
“Listen to your patient, he is telling you the diagnose.”
Yet today, this has changed. Doctors are now told what to prescribe by outside business and parents are now being told what must be done with their children by these same profiteering doctors, despite the parents wishes and concerns. Families are now being ripped apart when the parent asserts their god-given right to choose the path of their child. Even if that path is one the doctor deems to be incorrect, it is the right of the parent to make that choice, not the state.
Yet what is being seen today in the medical field is quite a startling precedent to be setting in this country; a country already struggling to maintain its illusion of freedom and democracy. This is the practice called “medical kidnapping” and it is taking place in situations where a parent is choosing to opt-out of a given medical procedure in favor of either an alternative option, such as cannabis related treatments, or nothing at all; which is the case in regards to vaccines.
Medical kidnapping is defined as:
“The State taking away children from their biological parents and putting them into State custody and the foster care system, simply because the parents did not agree with a doctor regarding their prescribed medical treatment for the family.”
The two most prevalent circumstances in which parents are choosing to opt-out of treatment is again, with vaccines, and very commonly today with chemotherapy in lieu of cannabis or other alternative treatments.
Many parents are beginning to see through the thin veneer of the anti-cannabis government narrative, and are now choosing to treat their child’s cancer with a variety of cannabis derived treatments that are being shown to not only be a better option than chemo, but the best option overall. This is the point in which a doctor would make the unilateral decision, based on whatever incentive the pharmaceutical companies have offered, to call Child Protective Services and report what they claim is child endangerment. Yet with all the current research showing cannabis to be the smart option, however disregarded that research may be by the federal government, it is a parent’s right to make an educated choice that they feel is in the best interest of their child. To be clear, this is not to say that one should completely disregard the advice of their doctor, but more so should find a doctor they trust, and make their own decision based on their trusted doctor’s recommendation and their own research.
With chemotherapy, there is no excuse for a doctor to report a parent for choosing an alternative treatment. Especially when one takes into consideration the low success rate of chemo and its unbearable side-effects, primarily for children; and the apparent success rate of cannabis to treat cancer. A selfish and self-serving motive becomes clear when it is revealed that chemotherapeutic drugs are the only classification of drug where the doctor gets a direct cut of the profit. That is the definition of a conflict of interest, as it is in the doctor’s best interest to prescribe chemotherapy, regardless of what is best for the patient.
Vaccines are a much more controversial topic. In the case of chemo, one could make the argument that they are choosing a better option and in no way can be charged with child endangerment. Yet with vaccines, the argument could be made that a parent should not have to right to opt-out of a treatment or preventative measure where there is no alternative; which is the case with vaccines. This is however unfounded, as the choice in every regard to a child falls in the hands of the parent. One must also take into account the many rising concerns about the safety and efficacy of vaccines following the revelations that came as a result of the CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson who spoke out about a connection between the MMR vaccine and autism; and how they intentionally concealed and trashed the corresponding relevant data.
The bottom line is that every human being is capable of deception, greed, and malfeasance; and with that possible manipulation of information for the benefit of the individual being an ever-present possibility, a parent must always have a choice. If our history has shown us anything, it is that humanity is capable of extreme good and extreme evil, and both are always present, and to think that we have risen to a state where that extreme evil is absent, is the embodiment of naïvety.
Once liberty was overtaken by security, once choice was overtaken by luxury, and once we allowed for the greed of humanity to dictate the necessities of our culture, the true freedom that was once the pride of a nation was cast aside for the objectives and desires of the few who convinced the many that their personal ambition was the same as our freedom.
Those who choose to blindly follow the directive of an industry that has been shown over and over again to be completely controlled by pharmaceutical companies’ ambition, are essentially taking medical advice from a corporation that has no interest in your child’s health, outside of that which creates a profit.
This is not to say that within this largely bought out industry there are not those who attempt to do the right thing, such as Dr. William Thompson at the CDC, but history has clearly shown what happens to those who stand against the empire. Ultimately, every American should have a choice, in anything and everything. And that is quintessentially American.
