Of the many constitutionally-guaranteed rights of the American public that the federal government has sought to destroy in recent decades, the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech is arguably the most important. If the ability for citizens to express themselves in the political, personal and commercial spheres is infringed, abridged, restricted or regulated by government agencies, this is one of the most obvious hallmarks of tyranny.
The Food and Drug Administration has appointed itself arbiter of what commercial speech is acceptable or unacceptable when it comes to marketing vitamins, supplements, foods, drugs, and other health products. Like every other form of government-imposed authority, however, that position of arbitration has been abused, corrupted, and, ultimately, used as an instrument to shut down competition from companies who threaten the business interests of the lobbyists and industry insiders that themselves populate the FDA.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the corruption infested and special interest driven FDA’s tyrannical powers in setting impossible rules on the marketplace, placing prior restrictions on the speech of health product manufacturers, and inserting itself as the umpire in the arena of the marketplace by using consumer safety as the ostensible reason.
Nothing could be more antithetical to the very idea of individual freedom than to have governments telling us that we must put some substance in our bodies. Without ownership of our body and the attendant right to refuse this or that medicine as we see fit, we are nothing more than slaves of the state. This is a principle that has been long understood. But the reasons against mandating medical treatments rest on practicalities as much as ideal. The plain fact is that even if we can trust that governments only ever work in the interest of the people and not the medical-industrial lobby that pumps billions of dollars a year into Washington, D.C., they are still prone to error and thus their medical judgments should never be mandated on the public.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the history and expansion of mandatory vaccination, the Nuremberg Laws, religious and medical exemption statutes in public health laws, and the government’s war on vaccination exemption as part of a long battle against freedom of choice in vaccination- one that has long intimidated and confused parents into having their children vaccinated against their will and in violation of the principle of informed consent
“Freedom” is a word that has been so abused in the modern era that it is difficult to remember that it is not just a campaign slogan or a nebulous item that causes Al Qaeda boogeymen to hate us. It is an ideal for which men have fought and died, an ideal that for the vast majority of human existence was almost literally unthinkable.
The principle of health freedom is really the underlying principle of freedom generally: that I own my body, and that no presumed governmental authority wearing whatever hat or badge can force me into ceding that ownership to them. Whether that be the freedom to drink raw milk or the freedom from being shot up with Big Pharma’s latest untested vaccine, it’s a freedom that touches each and every person on the planet’s life in the most personal way possible. And for that reason, the fight for health freedom is the key battleground in the war for individual liberty.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the assault on the most basic form of freedom–the freedom to do what we like with our own bodies, and the attendant freedom from outside coercion by others in the name of “safety.”
