According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, “Autoimmune disease happens when the body’s natural defense system can’t tell the difference between your own cells and foreign cells, causing the body to mistakenly attack normal cells.”
Canada’s health bureaucracy is now acting like an autoimmune disease to the body politic.
How did many of health-care’s “front-line heroes” of the past 18 months suddenly find themselves out on the streets because they refused to comply with vaccine mandates?
It makes no sense to the health-care professionals. It also destroys the health care they provide to the public. Surely it is not accidental.
What is the third rail? The Great Reset and the UN’s Social Development Goals for Agenda 2030. This post-national agenda is now plainly at enmity with the health of Canadians.
That is because post-nationalism is the political expression of posthumanism. Posthumanism represents the view that individual human life is of no intrinsic value—it is all about the environment.
Now these “scientific” decisions don’t even appear to serve health.
Is it really health care when people with two positive COVID tests are sent home without instruction to ameliorate the symptoms, waiting around to see if they will have to admit themselves to hospital (by which point they are often in a critical state)?
Soon the rapid testing will extend into the schools, doubtless driving the next phase of panic.
Neither science nor health are served by such measures.
But there are other problems for scientific integrity.
Let’s look at it at the highest level.
Peer-reviewed journals serve as permanent and transparent forums for the presentation, scrutiny, and discussion of scientific research. They are the gold standard.
But what happens when the gold standard suffers from inflation?
Algorithms seem to be the solution. The speed with which they operate allows articles to be filtered and ranked. They also appear to be neutral, avoiding the biases, politics, and the personal career objectives of those academics once involved in actually reading the journals and ranking them.
Now the algorithms do the reading and the ranking.
But the solution is more problematic than it would appear.
Yet Clarivate is apparently not about the furtherance of science.
As CEO Jerre Stead notes, ‘At Clarivate, sustainability isn’t something we do. It’s everything we do.’ The organization’s ‘goals are aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and it will increasingly align with the UN’s Agenda 2030.What does this have to do with Canada’s provincial health policies?
For one, it brings into question whether the impact factor of scientific research is coloured by Clarivate’s unscientific commitment to sustainability, and specifically that defined by the UN’s SDGs.
Better means it better serves the UN’s goals.
To that exact same end, the provincial health agencies also appear to operate.
The Dalla Lana experts informing Canada’s largest province on “the science” appear to have published little or no research on SARS-COVID-19. Let that sink in.
Perhaps the third rail needs to have its power cut.
