Human Guinea-Pigs, 2008: Ontario Doctors

Is Ontario the experimental California of the Great White North? It appears so.

The particular form of fascism in Germany– statist, socialist, eugenicist, racist– meant that the resources of the state were all bent to the national purpose. That included the ‘culling’ of useless eaters, as well as the handicapped, the disabled, the mentally ill, and various classes of people deemed sub-human (homosexuals, gypsies, and others). Agents of the state (including doctors, nurses, and hospitals) were required to ‘do their part’.

Eugenics was the rising thing in the West, as well. Blacks, the poor, the genetically unfit– experts had plans galore for ‘improving the race’ all to the higher goal of eradicating disease, poverty, ignorance, and suffering. In this, Medicine marched in lock-step in Germany, the United states, and Canada. Much of this history has been whitewashed and forcibly forgotten since the 1940s, but the truth remains.

Cast aside in Germany was the universal Western medical Hippocratic Oath; the conscience, religious faith, or morality of the medical personnel was irrelevant. To be a doctor, you either signed on, or were dismissed. A few healers did what they could to save lives, but the collaboration of modern medicine in modern fascism is not a proud chapter of human history.

Aside from the trappings of Nazism, when anyone bends medicine to ulterior motives and purposes, they are taking the power of life and death into their hands, and power over other humans for whatever purpose. Of course, parts of Canadian and American medicine (and their ruling bodies) are already compromised in the introduction of euthanasia, abortion, infanticide, and other death-dealing practices ‘for the good’ of whomever. Babies are killed in Canada; unborn children are killed in Canada. The sick and elderly and ‘vegetative’ are killed in Canada. The dying are sped up (hospital beds cost, you know); embryos are frozen, harvested, experimented on.

Dr. Micheline Matthews-Roth (Harvard University Medical School): “It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception.” Murder means the killing of innocent human life. All Doctors in Ontario are going to be coerced to murder, or aid and abet in it.

The problem is, there is no such thing as actions in isolation from everything else: evil spreads to a wider circle of people, dragging everything in, like a black hole eats all in its gravitic reach. To compromise or surrender your conscience, faith, or principles is to damage a soul: to force medicine to evil ends, to institutionalize evil is to bend all of society toward destruction, to make everyone a part of the evil, to rule out legitimate opposition and disagreement is profoundly fascist and anti-democratic and unconstitutional and unCanadian.

We’ve been warned by the USSR about dehumanizing political opposition; by Nazi Germany about dehumanizing the supposedly ‘subhuman’; by 25 years of Roe Vs. Wade in the U.S. about eugenics and widespread abortion; by China of doctors enforcing the one-child policy via abortion, infanticide, and sex-selective policies that are making China a demographic and human disaster.

We’ve Been Warned– been there, done that, counted the bodies.

The conscience of a trained professional steeped in the methods and wisdom of past generations, with the cautions and restraint– that’s not a bug, it’s a feature. I want my doctor to choose life; to do their best for me and my loved ones; and not to worry that at some point the executioner switch goes on and granny gets bumped off to save health care resources; the baby gets offed.

We’ve been warned. Freedom and lives stand in the balance. Canada is taking on features of the death-cult of Nazism, except behind hospital walls and with a smile. Strong-arming doctors and nurses and hospitals does not make it right: it makes it worse. Shame on Ontario’s College of Physicians for this anti-Christian inhuman fascism.

All shall be tools in the hands of Our Betters! Utopia nears!

Binks

P.S. To learn from the past, let’s read Hippocrates again, and imagine all these oaths broken, and what kind of ‘doctors’ would result. Mhmm– Mordor. Auschwitz. The Gulag. Welcome to the future.

I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepios and Hygeia and Panacea and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgement this oath and this covenant:

To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art – if they desire to learn it – without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else.

I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.

Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.

What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself, holding such things shameful to be spoken about.

If I fulfill this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the
opposite of all this be my lot.
