The political atmosphere in the world today is chaotic to say the least. One thing that seems to always get thrown around so carelessly is constant comparison of political leaders or parties to that of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Regime. Have you ever sat back and wondered how this one man was able to convince an entire country that it was morally acceptable to murder over 6,000,000 humans? How many people believe that Hitler was solely responsible for the idea of an ideal race and the need for mass genocide? Could it be he was just “following the science”?
This is in NO WAY to take away or diminish the atrocities that took place, but the question still remains. Adolph Hitler was born in 1889, but the phrase “Eugenics” was first used by Francis Galton in his “Inquiries into Human Faculty” in 1883 – 6 years before Hitler was even born. It was in 1904 that Galton, in his eighties, lectured to the newly-formed Sociological Society and defined Eugenics as, “the science which deals with all influences that improve the inborn qualities of a race; also with those that develop them to the utmost advantage” (Saleeby, 1914).
Eugenics took off from there and exploded in popularity around the world and the Sterilization Movement began and in 1927 the US Supreme Court decided 8:1 in Buck v Bell to uphold a state’s right to forcibly sterilize individuals deemed unfit to procreate. This led to an estimated 70,000 state-mandated sterilizations in America alone (NPR, 2016). In fact, some say the Nazis actually got the idea of eugenics from America with Indiana passing the first sterilization law in 1907 and Madison Grant writing The Passing of a Great Race, which expressed the pro-Aryan theory, or Nordics as Grant put it.
So let’s pose some questions again. Ever wonder how Hitler convinced so many people that mass genocide was morally acceptable? Ever wonder why the rest of the world didn’t jump in to stop them right away? Was it because for nearly 50 years prior to World War II everyone was just “Following the Science” and allowing for state mandates to determine medical needs of individuals for society as a whole? They were good people. They were doing the right thing for the betterment of everyone by following the science… RIGHT?
Fast forward to now, 18 months into “2 weeks to stop the spread” and our treasured vaccines have flopped. Somehow it makes scientific sense that you can keep your Constitutional rights and civil liberties such as going to large gatherings of people, attend in-person schooling, eating at a restaurant, working out at a gym, and get this – YOU CAN EVEN KEEP YOUR JOB… but only if you’re vaccinated.
On the other hand, if you make the medical decision for yourself or your family to not get the vaccine, then all of those options are off the table – unless you’re willing to get a rather large q-tip shoved so far up your nose that you may as well opt for a lobotomy. Oh yeah and CA’s Governor Newsom will refer to you in press conferences as a “right-wing pundit”, drunk-driving murderer.
There is so much information, peer-reviewed even, that contradicts the other on this topic, that it is no wonder that there is hesitancy. Check this out:
“Vaccine effectiveness studies provide a growing body of evidence that mRNA COVID-19 vaccines offer similar protection in real-world conditions as they have in clinical trial settings, reducing the risk of COVID-19, including severe illness, among people who are fully vaccinated by 90 percent or more” (CDC, 2021 updated 8/16/2021 at the time of this writing). However, from the same government website, dated just 10 days prior (August 6, 2021), we have actual scientific data laid out, not feel-good statements pushing a political agenda, about a real-world condition in Barnstable County, Mass., which had a high vaccine rate at 69% of the population. “Overall, 274 (79%) vaccinated patients with breakthrough infection were symptomatic. Among five COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized, four were fully vaccinated; no deaths were reported. Real-time reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) cycle threshold (Ct) values in specimens from 127 vaccinated persons with breakthrough cases were similar to those from 84 persons who were unvaccinated, not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status was unknown (median = 22.77 and 21.54, respectively)” (CDC, 2021).
The vaccinated are still getting sick, still transmitting, still ending up in the hospitals, and still dying, but they are somehow superior and get to keep their Constitutional rights and civil liberties in place. Those who are unvaccinated, for whatever their reasoning may be, are just part of the “feebleminded” like those of the early 20th century that must be state-mandated to comply with medical procedures against our will. How does that cliché go? History Repeats Itself!
1943, following the era of state-mandated Eugenic Sterilization practices, Abraham Myerson was published in The Yale Law Journal and made profound statements, “Every program which proposes a reformation of society, whether in its biologic or sociologic structure, awakens fierce controversy which is usually independent of the merits of the situation…a reform of drastic nature must in a democracy have behind it a solid and educated public opinion, if it is to be enforced in any thoroughgoing way. Moreover, if this reform is to meet with judicial as well as public approval, it must be set within the framework of individual rights and immunities provided by the Constitution” (Myerson, 1943).
Somehow after nearly 8 decades from Myerson’s reflection of the Eugenic Sterilization Era, we have learned nothing. We are back to government and state-mandated medical intervention at the direction of our very own Dr. Anthony Fauci, who recently asked all the feebleminded unvaccinated Americans to follow the science and,
“Put aside all of these issues of concern about liberties and personal liberties and realize we have a common enemy.”
So Come on America – Follow the Science
