H1N1, Swine Flu - Fear mongering?

Panic instills fear, produces unnecessary stress and may cause chaos over either news or information whose value is is not fully ascertained or has passed acceptable limits of critical due scrutiny.

In the past 48 hours several teachers colleges, schools and other university colleges in Malaysia have been closed and word of alarm have been disseminated via the MSM.

What is the real situation behind this H1N1 scare?

Get a second opinion from Global Research. Satisfy your curiosity and determine yourself the value of the information overload. You decide ...

Excerpts from Global Research:

Cases of what was then called swine flu were found in soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J. in 1976, including one death. That death, whose true cause is in dispute as the soldier, sick with influenza was put on a forced march despite and fell dead, was used by Sencer to convince Ford to launch one of the most infamous public health fiascos in US history, forcing Sencer’s resignation as CDC head. Federal officials vaccinated 40 million Americans during a national campaign. A pandemic never materialized, but thousands who got the shots filed injury claims, as they contracted a paralyzing condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome or other side effects. At least 25 people died after receiving the vaccine died and 500 developed Guillain-Barre syndrome, an inflammation of the nervous system which can cause paralysis and be fatal. The US Government was forced to pay damages after vaccination victims made it a national scandal. In the end the 1976 Swine Flu vaccine proved far worse than the disease.

Sencer was fired in 1977 for the fiasco but by then the damage had already been done.

No Safety Test? Don’t worry, be happy…

The story gets worse. Now that the Obama Administration has signed a document of immunity from legal prosecution, the FDA in the United States and UK health authorities have decided to let Big Pharma put vaccine products onto the market before any tests of the possible harmful side effects of the vaccines are even known.

The first doses of swine flu vaccine will be given to the public before full data on its safety and effectiveness become available. The untested “pandemic” vaccines will be spread over two doses in a higher quantity, and one brand reportedly will contain a chemical additive, an adjuvant, to make it “go further,” dramatically potentially increasing the risk of side-effects.

Thomas Kuhn, who studied the history of science, argues that science moves forward through political revolutions. At any one time there are theories that everyone believes. This is called the normal science phase and scientists work day to day with the current theories. However scientists who don't agree, don't get published so easily, and find it hard to get any money to do research. All the effort goes into the current way of thinking (or paradigm). Slowly over a period of time the current theories make wrong predictions, errors turn up, they are ignored, till eventually there are too many. A crisis ensues, and a paradigm shift occurs. Everyone starts to believe the new theory, and the normal science phase begins again ... till the next big jump.

In most things these bases help clear things up:

Accuracy - empirically adequate with experimentation and observation
Consistency - internally consistent, but also externally consistent with other theories
Breadth/ Depth - a theory's consequences should extend beyond that which it was initially designed to explain
Simplicity - the simplest explanation, principally similar to Occam's Razor
Utility/usefulness - a theory should disclose new phenomena or new relationships among phenomena

HahhaaHHa, so pharmacetical industries need pumping up too. No pandemic, no funding. No funding, no creativity so adopt a domino theory for effective sales strategy?

This is bad lah!

It's making more people believe, and rightly so in some circumstances, that any elected or unelected government never really rule. They're involved with greedy men who steal and plunder - what's worst, by deceit, lagi!!!
