Vaccination and your rights with Bronwyn Hancock
Last week we looked at the question of vaccine efficacy and safety. Our discussion today focuses on the question of your rights. Are vaccines compulsory? Can day care centres legally refuse entry to unvaccinated children? Can schools demand vaccination records? Will parents of unvaccinated children receive the government health care rebate?
My guest today in the 2nd hour is Bronwyn Hancock, a passionate advocate of health freedom, who runs the Vaccination Information Service in Sydney, Australia. Bronwyn's organisation provides assistance to many people engaged in custody battles where one parent insists the child must be vaccinated. Such cases often end up in the family court, and Bronwyn has been helping parents who are against vaccines to present legally sound arguments.
The central question addressed in today's show is about fundamental freedom and the rights of parents to decide what is best for their children. This transcends the controversy over the science of vaccines, for it is about our most basic beliefs about how society should be structured. Should we entrust the power of life and death over ourselves and our children to governments and mega-corporations? Should we surrender our free will and independence to the "experts", believing that only they can make the right decisions for us?
Or do we trust our own capacity to think, judge and act in our own best interest?
This vital question, I believe, is at the heart of the crisis in today's democracies, as we progress towards fascism. In the emerging fascist state, the rights of the individual are subordinated to an almost mystical notion of the greater good, as determined by corporate sponsored scientists, technocrats and self serving politicians - who are all exploiting the general population in some way. We are being lied to, ripped off, lectured to, and injured by those who run the key institutions at the heart of our society.
This situation is clearly intolerable, and there must ultimately be a revolution of sorts to restore basic common law and morality to our body politic. Let's hope the revolution can be achieved peacefully.
I hope you enjoy the show!
