Since “public health” started being the voice of hysteria, Big Pharma and junk science, a predictable phenomenon has happened: an unstoppable proliferation of hypochondriacs. This was inevitable. After all, if there is an institution dedicated to gardening, naturally those who like gardening will go there, and perhaps bring friends, who may come back; if there is one dedicated to astronomy, not only will all the star fans will go there, but the general interest in astronomy will increase. Finally, the bigger the institution, the larger the phenomenon.
“Public health” is the largest single institution on Earth. Too bad that it has also become the largest liberticidal and criminal enterprise ever conceived, dedicated to junk science and hate promotion — the perfect bed for all kinds of opportunist cons. It has also become a great pole of attraction for hypochondriacs. These kind of people manifest their need for importance and attention through the display of disease and discomfort. Of course they take great offence when you call them "hypos," show great contempt for your "callousness" and cry more to attract more attention. In the past, such people were kept under tight control with the dismissal of both laypeople and health authorities, and they had to select the most gullible people before putting up their show.
Today, however, gullibility is the standard, and we all know that it is sufficient to whine and “cry health” to have the unconditional attention of “public health” and the media, and support by stupid politicians and fellow mental cases. Look at what happened with passive smoking: is the mere sight of a cigarette the “cause” of cough and convulsions? Don’t kick the “hypo” in the ass, kick the smoker instead — or, better yet, pass a law that forbids the display of cigarettes! Furthermore, when “authority” pays attention, hypochondriacs multiply their diseases as fast as flies make maggots.
Here comes the allergy to Wi-Fi — yes, wireless computers! A group in Santa Fe says the city is discriminating against them because these poor unfortunate afflicted poster children say that they’re allergic to the wireless Internet signal. Now of course they want Wi-Fi banned from public buildings.
“Arthur Firstenberg says he is highly sensitive to certain types of electric fields, including wireless Internet and cell phones. ‘I get chest pain and it doesn’t go away right away,’ he said. Firstenberg and dozens of other electro-sensitive people in Santa Fe claim that putting up Wi-Fi in public places is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. “
"It’s not 1692, it’s 2008", City Councilor Ron Trujillo says. "Santa Fe needs to embrace this technology, it’s not going away." Dead wrong, Mr. Trujillo. You don’t get it: it is 1692 all over again and worse; the witches are everything and everywhere now; "health" trumps all rights, and progress must cease and recede before it. Whether health factors are real or presumed (i.e. phantasised) is now irrelevant. Just look around and see how many smokers smoke inside your building. Then must not Wi-Fi go out the door too? Did you support the smoking ban, by the way?…
Stop laughing, folks, this is serious stuff. Pay attention: according to the trash Precautionary Principle (PP). This perverse "principle" is the holy grail of environmentalists and healthists because it is the vehicle for all of their bullshit — that’s why they built it! Based on the new and entrenched perversity, all “hypo” Firstenberg and his ilk have to do is:
Find a few epidemiologic quacks who “associate” disease with Wi-Fi exposure through epidemiological questionnaires.
Make noise with local politicians and “health authorities”.
Find a lawyer and sue.
Done! Because, at that point, the PP clearly establishes that statements from “authority” (that is, the epi quacks and the "health" authorities) constitute themselves as the necessary and sufficient “scientific proof” to act as if the claim were demonstrated. That means implementing laws, bans, restrictions, fines and so on. From this point on it is the manufacturers of computers and Wi-Fi equipment that have to demonstrate – scientifically! – that powerless Wi-Fi radiations DO NOT cause the alleged harm.
As it is scientifically impossible to demonstrate a negative, the hypochondriacs and their mentally disabled, fanatical allies of “public health” will be "in the right.” Then, with the appropriate media fanfare, the ignorant baboon known as "public opinion" may even hail this umpteenth “progress” and “protection” by “public health.”
The Precautionary Principle is the ideological sewer running under every and all health hysteria you see around today, and the cracked foundation for the inevitable social bankruptcy to come. It is a perverse principle pushed by criminals who want to get away with their frauds — and profit from them too.
So, get ready to rid yourself of the wireless connection: the same hypochondriac who will sue you for passive smoking exposure may soon sue you for “passive computer disease." Hey — we said it already — stop laughing, this is serious stuff. Remember when you laughed if someone suggested you’d have a smoking ban in your own town, in your own car, in your own home?
Haven’t you learned yet?… institutional corruption is a serious matter.
