Medicalization of Politics

Gary Wilson had mentioned a book titled “Confessions of a Medical Heretic.” Though presently reading, “Bechamp or Pasteur?: A Lost Chapter in the History of Biology”, I did get a copy of the “Confessions…. “ book. While flipping through the book, a specific footnote stood out, appearing on Pgs 154/155. A reference to and quotation from a piece written in 1978 called “The Medicalization of Politics”(pdf link)

The essential function of medicine is the medicalization of politics through the propagandization of a therapeutic ideology

1- the basic problem is YOU

2- the resolution of YOUR problem is MY professional control

3-MY control is your help

Medicalized politics is unilateral- the decision of the “helpers” on behalf of the “helped”

The more things change the more they are exactly the same. We live in one heck of a groomed, for exploitation, society!

Hi Penny:
Mendelsohn also wrote “How To Raise A Healthy Child In Spite Of Your Doctor”. Guess what he thought of vaccinations.

I have a copy of Mendelsohn’s “MALE PRACTICE – How Doctors Manipulate Women”. I highly recommend it to women and those who support women.
I also have a copy of a book recommended by Mendelsohn: “IMMUNIZATION The Reality Behind the Myth” by Walene James.
I also have “DPT A Shot In the Dark” by Harris Coulter and Barbara Loe Fisher.
I always like to have evidence to support my position.

Totally agree, Penny. I’m still waiting for the book to arrive from the UK – I have the text.pdf version but I sit at my computer too much already so have only quickly skimmed. July 1996 was my last contact with the medical profession, who predicted dire things if I did not have a certain surgery. Never had it, and the predicted catastrophe has not occurred.

But, as you know, the profession as a whole is, for the most part, compliant with Lockdowns, Masks and the instillation of abject fear into the average Canadian without, apparently, questioning the now globe-controlling WHO — and any doctor who thinks he/she can diagnose/treat patients via a Zoom visit is delusional to say the least.

“and any doctor who thinks he/she can diagnose/treat patients via a Zoom visit is delusional to say the least”

I’d just heard, can’t recall who, talking about this. If you are really caring for a patient you need to visually see them, in person. To see things like skin colour- jaundice, pale.
To know them and to be able to see differences in them from previous visit to present-

Yes, delusional indeed! And there is lots of that and worse going around!
