“Modern medicine can’t survive without our faith, because modern medicine is neither an art nor a science; it’s a religion...Just ask ‘why’ enough times and sooner or later you’ll reach the chasm of faith.” - — Robert Mendelsohn
‘Medical science is making such remarkable progress that soon no-one will be well... Medical research has made such enormous advances that there are hardly any healthy people left. — Aldous Huxley
Science costs money and he who dispenses the money can control the science. —Charles Ortleb
Has American medicine truly become a ‘racket,’ as corrupt as a mafia organization? — Oliver Stone

Mainstream medicine,also called Western medicine or orthodox medicine, or allopathic medicine.

Critics say the methods of the allopathic Rockefeller pharmaceutical system will keep people sick, a continuous and consistent income stream for the medical industrial complex…[1]

Germ theory[edit]

Mainstream medicine fosters public and press scorn for nutritional, holistic, functional, integrative, and natural medicines. However, it is factors such as nutrition, absence of pollution and sanitation which have the honor of having vanquished infectious disease mortalities. A study found that “vaccination does not account for the impressive decline in mortality from infectious diseases . . . in the 20th century.”[2]

Critics also say the modern scientific method relies mainly on ignoring, blocking or censoring anything opposed to the personal beliefs of the scientist.

Controversies[edit]

Robert F Kennedy wrote  : some four hundred years after Galileo—politics and power continue to dictate “scientific consensus,” rather than empiricism, critical thinking, or the established steps of the scientific method. It is a hazard to both democracy and public health when a kind of religious faith in authoritative pronouncements supplants disciplined observation, rigorous proofs, and reproducible results as the source of “truth” in the medical field. While consensus may be an admirable political objective, it is the enemy of science and truth. The term “settled science” is an oxymoron. The admonishment that we should “trust the experts” is a trope of authoritarianism. Science is disruptive, irreverent, dynamic, rebellious, and democratic. Consensus and appeals to authority (be it CDC, WHO, Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, or the Vatican) are features of religion, not science. Science is tumult. Empirical truth generally arises from the tilled, agitated, and upturned soils of debate. Doubt, skepticism, questioning, and dissent are its fertilizers. Every great scientific advance in history, every transformative idea, from evolution to heliocentrism to relativity, met initial ridicule from the panjandrums of “scientific consensus.”[3]

On censorship in medical science, Celia Farber writes, “The US military industrial complex—HHS, NIH, NCI, DAIDS—all of it, is designed along military command structure because it is,” says Celia Farber. “It is the military. It’s not ‘science’ and it’s not ‘merit.’ Fauci understands this and has mastered the elimination of both dissent and any mercy for the destroyed. It’s a sin as he has now openly said, to question him—to question ‘science.’ He’s so far gone that he has actually come out and said he is science.”[4]

Dr. Michael Crichton observed: Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.[5]

Christian Schubert speaks of the machine medicine : Dualism and reductionism are old mistakes of medicine that have not been corrected centuries. If you think dualistic and reductionist as in allopathic medicine (machine medicine) and say: It's all about putting the body at the center and the smallest building blocks, ie the virus. The whole person is then forgotten and not considered worthy, important and significant. And that has happened in a frightening form in the last two years. So the western medicine, orthodox medicine has revealed itself in the Covid crisis in its true form and has banged itself on the wall.

Various aspects of modern medicine have come under criticism from all types of people.

Some of the more controversial claims include:

Medical fascism, power and control[edit]

James Corbett reports: The idea was first floated by Gavi CEO Seth Berkley in a Nature article that year, "Immunization needs a technology boost," where he states that the goal of 100% immunization will not be reached without "secure digital identification systems that can store a child’s medical history." He then gives a specific example: "We are working with a company in India called Khushi Baby, which creates off-grid digital health records. A necklace worn by infants contains a unique identification number on a short-range communication chip. Community health workers can scan the chip using a mobile phone, enabling them to update a child’s digital record even in remote areas with little phone coverage."[6]

Censorship[edit]

A doctor on substack writes:
What a lot of people do not appreciate is how hard it is to produce research that goes against the status quo or questions taboo subjects. As far as I was able to tell from reviewing Andrew Wakefield story, he did everything right (which is why his original study was published). The thing very few people realize, is that it is almost impossible to 100% follow every single rule and regulation, so you run into a situation where law enforcement tends to be extremely selective and typically targeted towards individuals who question the status quo or commit political offenses, thereby making an example out of them so others do not attempt to do the same thing (this is a common tactic used by those attempting to have power, because it allows them to exponentially magnify the force exerted by making a single example out of someone and whoever creates the most power typically ends up being in power).
The specific things Wakefield was accused of doing were very minor and I regularly see much worse things conducted in research that nobody bats an eye towards. However without knowing that context, it makes the allegations against him (many of which were false) look atrocious, and he is thus in the unfortunate situation where he has been made a pariah, not allowed to defend himself against unfair accusations (which is why it is so vital you are giving a platform to him here), and is forced to shoulder a large burden to help these vaccine injured children because almost no one else will. I have tried to debate Wakefield situation with colleagues, and in most cases I found it's a lost cause because of how much their brains glaze over on the topic.
One of the major issues with the vaccination program is that everyone adamantly refuse to ever conduct a controlled study comparing giving the childhood immunization schedule to not giving the child an immunization schedule under the rationalization that "immunization are so beneficial, it is unethical to ever conduct a study where subjects are prevented from being immunized.” Given that as it is extremely unlikely children will suffer significant harm from any of the childhood illnesses vaccinations are provided for (this is analogous to children having an almost 0% risk of dying from Covid), it is highly questionable to argue they are exposed to a significant risk through not vaccinating. Additionally, there are a large number of studies that suggest a childhood immunization schedule is harmful, and the large number of studies showing improved health outcomes for children who are not vaccinated. Hence, if you dissect this argument, it's essentially saying we can never permit a double blind study of the childhood immunization schedule to be conducted because it would be abundantly clear that it is harmful.
When you look through all the research, a pattern then emerges where studies cited that question the benefits of the childhood immunization schedule are dismissed because they are "not randomized control studies” and therefore subject to a variety of biases that make them invalid (ignoring of course the fact that these types of studies are explicitly prohibited from ever being conducted). At the same time, research in favor of the vaccination schedule never is held to that same standard (and these cases correlation DOES prove causation). In a few cases, such as that of the CDC whistleblower, it has also been shown that the CDC worked diligently to conceal and hide a clear link between autism and vaccination that was present within their data set (the FDA has likewise done this with many other harmful drugs; I’m presently writing about how hard they worked to cover up the issues with SSRIs).[7]

Quotes[edit]

“Science is more than a body of knowledge. It’s a way of thinking, a way of skeptically interrogating the universe with a fine understanding of human fallibility. If we are not able to ask skeptical questions to interrogate those who tell us something is true to be skeptical of those in authority, then we’re up for grabs for the next charlatan political or religious, who comes ambling along.”
