The CDC medical police state: the right to detain anyone

by Jon Rappoport

September 5, 2016

—Understand the implications of new CDC rules, if you want to know where the medical dictatorship is heading.

Arbitrary apprehension of citizens, detainment, forced medical treatment, vaccination.

Let me paint a scenario:

You live in a polluted city, so you have a low-level cough. On your flight to another state, the cough becomes worse because the air in the plane cabin is foul. Unknown to you, a passenger complains to a flight attendant. The passenger is a typical meddler. When you arrive at your destination, a health-agency employee is waiting at the gate for you. He apprehends you and takes you to a room, to decide whether you have a communicable disease. His first standard question—are you up to date on your…

Paul Feyerabend’s defense of astrology, part II

This is excellent. It seems like, overall, Feyerabend was defending the exploration of ideas against scientific dogmatism. He was simply using astrology and this Manifesto to illustrate that point … to the irritation of the scientists that signed.

But Professor Pigliucci explains this much more eloquently. Thank you sir.

Plato's Footnote

AstrologyWe have began looking at the famous (or infamous, depending on who’s talking) episode of philosopher of science Paul Feyerabend’s “defense” of astrology, in response to an anti-astrology manifesto put forth by skeptic Paul Kurtz and co-signed by 186 scientists, back in 1975. This episode is the occasion for a recent paper by Ian Kidd, to which I have been invited to write a response by the journal Social Epistemology.

The Echo of The Voiceless

“From the very beginning the referendum was a farcical affair. What we needed was a year-long process (at the absolute minimum) of information, education and debate. What we got, for what was billed as ‘the most important decision in a generation’, was a short-lived barrage of sound-bite, fear-mongering, popularist jingoism and media hype.”

The above quote describes our media accelerated society, where the majority of the people will tolerate this broken process (for a variety of reasons, some out of their control).

The only solution I can see is a major physical revolution where people ignore attempts to be placated by “entertain-olotics” and media. (In America, we are in sore need of this as well).

People numbering towards the 25 – 100 million must make their presence felt.

Short of that (and it is a TALL undertaking), I can’t see light for these broken political systems.

Like it or not, the UK (as it is currently constituted) has decided to leave the EU. What this means for us in socioeconomic terms will only become evident over the coming decade. Likewise what it means for Britain as a unified whole will only become evident over the course of the next couple of years. The one thing we can be certain of is that the entire process has laid bare the terrible state of politics and democracy in Britain, right here, right now.

From the very beginning the referendum was a farcical affair. What we needed was a year-long process (at the absolute minimum) of information, education and debate. What we got, for what was billed as ‘the most important decision in a generation’, was a short-lived barrage of sound-bite, fear-mongering, popularist jingoism and media hype.

If we have learned anything from this referendum it is that the…
