2020-08-14 Letter to activist organization re covid: You can bleat all you want; nothing changes if corruption is not addressed. Unholy alliances.
(Organization Name) does NOT FACTOR THE ROLE OF CORRUPTION into its campaigns.
You can bleat all you want, nothing changes if corruption is not addressed. See below, a list of compelling statements by seven “thinkers of the day”. A hundred more examples could be added.
The “research” on vaccines that is done in Canadian universities and other institutions, that is “government funded” is done through public-private-partnerships, through collaboration agreements. Researchers are affected. The age-old adage applies: he who pays the piper calls the tune. If you believe it’s not the case, I’d say you are naive; read the statements by the seven thinkers, below.
I recently emailed CBC Radio, The House, unapologetic promoters of mandatory covid vaccination (you can’t call it journalism).
I will be joining those who do not sign up for a covid vaccination.
I have followed the vaccine question for at least 15 years.
It has been announced that Canada has signed up with Pfizer and Moderna. Are you afraid to ask the Minister of Public Procurement, or the medical authorities, about contracting with a company that has a decades-long public record of big-time corruption?
Let me tell ONE Pfizer story to make the point:
In 2007 the news of the criminal charges against Pfizer was little heard in western countries. It was eclipsed by a same-day scare-story about tuberculosis – – the Globe & Mail carried the latter, for example. Not the former.
(INSERT, my venting! Manipulation of the media by the unethical (“communications specialists” / propagandists) is often done this way – bury the corporate name and the unsavory real story with a sometimes-fraudulent press release that diverts attention and sets off another round of fear-driven behavior. Some media and their followers, irrational flocks of sheep, embrace the reassurances offered and the products – – Without Questioning the conflicts-of-interest, the universities that are in bed with big pharma, the experts spawned in a very conflicted “educational” environment, the long-standing, well-known public record of a very corrupt and corrupt-ING industry. The mantra trust us is for sheep and lemmings. . . . Continuing with the email!)
In 2009 there was an out-of-court settlement:
PFIZER TO PAY £50m ($75 million) AFTER DEATHS OF NIGERIAN CHILDREN IN DRUG TRIAL EXPERIMENT.
Out-of-court settlements come with a gag order. Convenient? But not for the public record.
The book and movie, “The Constant Gardener”, is based on what PFIZER did to the Nigerian children, during the chaos and confusion of a meningitis outbreak. Pfizer tested their new “blockbuster” drug Travon on human guinea pigs. Illegally, using trickery; deadly. In a different context it would be called manslaughter.
Pfizer is ruthless in the pursuit of money. You will know the long list of outrages brought by the pharmaceutical industry. They are now in the white-washing business, “partnering” with organizations and institutions to sanitize their image. But everyone makes money. The public purse is generous to the courtier class.
The corruption in the vaccine (pharmaceutical) industry appears to be immune to media scrutiny.
But good news (potentially):
The earlier talk of mandatory vaccination against covid SEEMS to have lessened. I suspect polling results play a role: the numbers of people who will not comply is too high.
You may remember what happened not too long ago when the Government of New Brunswick was going forward with a mandatory vaccine schedule for children, desired by Big Pharma. When confronted by the evidence of the dangers, risks, and inefficacies involved, the Legislature did not pass the legislation.
There are very good reasons for not making a potential covid vaccination mandatory.
What we can now expect is a “communications” plan to convince Canadians of the safety and efficacy of vaccines. The “new”. The campaign is already underway.
If it doesn’t work, scare tactics will be employed. Not science.
There is plenty of good science to guide us. It is not heard because of the “unholy alliances“.

THINKERS OF THE DAY
on the UNHOLY ALLIANCES between Government (public institutions) and Industry.
The statements are applicable to public institutions in general, not just “Government”.
(1) From John Kenneth Galbraith’s “The Economics of Innocent Fraud – Truth for our Time“, published in 2004
“… As the corporate interest moves to power in what was the public sector, it serves, predictably, the corporate interest. That is its purpose. …One obvious result has been well-justified doubt as to the quality of much present regulatory (and educational / research) effort. There is no question but that corporate influence extends to the regulators. … Needed is independent, honest, professionally competent regulation (persons) … This last must be recognized and countered. There is no alternative to effective supervision. …”
(2) John Ralston Saul, “Health Care at the End of the Twentieth Century”, 1999
“The Panel identified… serious concerns about the undermining of the scientific basis for risk regulation in Canada due to… the conflict of interest created by giving to regulatory (and training) agencies the mandates both to promote the development of agricultural technologies and to regulate it…”
Note: the ONLY people who get a job in the regulatory agencies are those who get trained by the University.
(3) President Dwight Eisenhower’s prescient Words of Wisdom
Right down to the involvement of the university, Eisenhower predicted the road ahead. His words motivate us to find our better selves.
Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.
In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.
Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present
- and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.
It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.
(4) We have Justice Krever, Commission of Inquiry on the Blood System in Canada, 1996
“Industry can’t be regulated by government – and for environmental and health reasons they must be – if that government is in bed with them.”
(5) George Soros, “Open Society [Reforming Global Capitalism]”, 2000, publisher PublicAffairs. p. xi,
“… the greatest threat to freedom and democracy in the world today comes from the formation of unholy alliances between government (insert: public institutions) and business.”
(6) Jane Jacobs’ “Systems of Survival, the Moral Foundations of Commerce and Politics” sets forth a framework for understanding that the system of governance will succumb to corruption if we fail to appreciate the functional roles of two separately evolved sets of ethics, one for the commercial function in a society and the other for governance (guardianship). But,
“Societies need both commercial and guardian work … the two types are prone to corruption if they stray across either their functional or moral barriers.”
(7) Mae-Wan Ho, “Genetic engineering – Dream or Nightmare?”, 1998
You may not like this one, but it rings absolutely true for the me that worked with others to open up the debate on genetically-modified organisms. There are many postings about GMOs on my blog. There is important information collected by this network, still valid today, that documents some of the propaganda used by educated people, refuted by common sense about the real world and nature, that most people would understand.
“To reassure us, they lie to us, and then treat us as idiots by insisting on things we all know are untrue. Not only does this prevent a reasonable debate from taking place, but it also creates a very unhealthy relationship between citizens and their elected representatives”. (and the “intellectuals” who train the regulators)
How come nobody has died of old age (or recorded as died) since March.
