They explain to you that sunlight is dangerous and causes skin cancer, and recommend using cosmetics and sunblock with toxins and carcinogens that are far more likely to cause skin cancer than the sun. Their own findings show that Vitamin D deficiency is linked to swine flu deaths (and, it can reasonably be extrapolated, seasonal flu deaths and likely countless other diseases), yet they tell you that only a vaccine can protect you from the flu. They tell you that Vitamin D really doesn't have anti-cancer properties (just a blatant, flat-out lie), recommend levels far below a level that would provide any health benefit, and tell you that levels needed for optimum health are toxic anyway. And when you become sick because of your Vitamin D deficiency, or depressed because you lock yourself in a dark room during daylight hours for fear of the sun, they've got a whole buffet of expensive, untested, toxic and addictive drugs for you to take, which will make you sicker, requiring you to take more expensive, untested, toxic and addictive drugs, and so on and so forth.
They tell you that foods treated with pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizer, or irradiated or plastered with raw sewage or unused vaccines and other various grotesqueries, as well as animals that are injected with synthetic hormones and fed, literally, shit, is no less healthy than organic food, and that if you believe there is a difference and choose to eat organic, you have an eating disorder. Common sense tells you this is also a lie.
Quietly gnawing at the establishment is the utter failure and embarrassment that has been the swine flu scam, mostly because not enough people are dumb enough, or worship authority or people in white coats enough, to believe them when they tell them 2+2=5. And rather than learning from this mistake, they soldier on with their absurdities, now telling us that vitamin supplements don't work, aren't necessary, and might even be bad for you.
- Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them. The Party intellectual knows in which direction his memories must be altered; he therefore knows that he is playing tricks with reality; but by the exercise of doublethink he also satisfies himself that reality is not violated. The process has to be conscious, or it would not be carried out with sufficient precision, but it also has to be unconscious, or it would bring with it a feeling of falsity and hence of guilt.
This is not simply stupidity infecting establishment types. Certain people, like the author of the Salon piece, have allowed their intelligence and common sense to be overtaken by their devotion and love of the State, unable to grasp the fact that the State is and always has been a gang of thieves and murderers writ large. They are following the dictates of people with an agenda: to reap mega profits for drug companies by transforming people into helpless shells of human beings fully dependent on the establishment for survival. If people found out how simple it was, in a modern world, to maintain optimum health and wellness without need of doctors and drugs and vaccines, the entire pharmaceutical leviathan would crumble to dust. And so we must expect, and react to, the attacks by the establishment on the natural, self-sufficient way of life. For all of their money, their lobbyists, and their paid politicians and judges, they still haven't found a way to buy and silence truth.
