The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Scientists are such dopes Yesterday I spoke at some length about my disdain for scientists and their efforts regarding genetic engineering. Today, coincidentally, there are some articles in the news that support my position. Six men undergoing clinical trials for a drug to treat leukemia ended up in the hospital, two in intensive care, with multiple organ failure. Eleven patients testing a drug to treat Alzheimer’s disease died! (We are told there were no deaths among the placebo group.)

I know we need doctors and scientists, and I know they have to be able to test new drugs, but they don’t have to kill us in the process. People generally don’t do enough thinking for themselves. They place too much faith, blindly, in authority figures and institutions that are often just as blind, or in the dark, clueless, as they are. Sometimes scientists and doctors don’t know what they are doing! Can I ever say that enough? Sometimes it is all just an experiment. If you want to be part of an experiment, fine, but I don’t. That goes for medical experiments and genetically modified food experiments. Include me out.

    guldang them stupid scientists, they shouldn't try stuff they don't know about. but then they wouldn't try stuff and we wouldn't know sh*t. join the world organisation regarding demands applauding ignorance (wordAI)! All efforts to discover things must stop! We don't know what we might discover! Terrible things might happen if people try things out! Stop everything!

    It's not the research that is wrong, it is the testing methods. It is all experimenting and we, the general public, should be informed and taught well enough to know the difference between trying something new and trying something unknown. It may be new to us but eating vegetables is pretty well understood.

    Now the issue with trying something new is the benefit it gives someone (or something , a corporation) the benefit of selling it to you. Beware of GMO law where a patent can be obtained and a well planned marketing campaign can legally stop you from selling or buying their "unknown". The corporation is just trying to figure out if you'll buy it, not whether it is actually better for you.

    You better stop, now, look around, there is something going on!
