The Weaponization of Medicine

re: ethics in medicine

Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.

Good summary of the pathetic state of affairs with medicine (and science) today.

The Weaponization of Medicine

by Paul Rosenberg, 2021-08-24

Whether or not we can express it clearly, or even perceive it clearly, I think nearly every adult grasps that medicine is being used as a weapon.

#1: Science is not consensus.

Ten, one hundred, or a million people, all draped in lab coats and saying the same thing, does NOT make it so. In fact, it matters not at all. It’s nothing but theater, and it’s anti-science...

#2: Medicine stands apart from, and above, politics.

...To place politics over medicine is to subjugate and degrade medicine: it’s a path backwards into darkness...

#3: Peer review no longer means much.

...peer review has been captured by academic hierarchies and almost fully separated from science proper. It has become a tool of institutional power...

#4: Medicine and science have nothing to do with social pressure.

Once “medicine” and “science” are mixed with social pressure, they are no longer science or medicine...

#5: If you don’t read multiple scientific papers, especially from rebels and cast-outs, you simply don’t know.

You can pretend you know, of course, and you can be sure that agents of the status quo will provide you with passable reasons to repeat their slogans, but you won’t actually know...

...

WIND: you can’t trust anything or anyone anymore. COVID hysteria pulled away the curtain. And maybe that’s a good thing.
