Reject The Wisdom In Favor Of The Whim

18 October 2018 @ 14:54

First Item:

Multiple cases of typhus have popped up in downtown Los Angeles and prompted health officials to warn about the flea-spread disease, which can cause organ damage in severe cases.

Nine people were reported ill between July and September, with officials eyeing trash and stray animals as potential catalysts.

Typhus is a disease caused by bacteria found in infected fleas that can come from cats, rats, opossums, and other stray animals. Accumulation of trash or overcrowding and poor hygiene is typically associated with the spread of the disease.

Symptoms are typically managed on their own, but severe cases may require antibiotics. Those with severe cases who avoid treatment may risk organ damage or even death.

Second Item:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now reporting that there are now more than 125 confirmed or suspected cases of acute flaccid myelitis, a condition affecting children across the nation and leaving them paralyzed.

One child has died of the disease, and 62 of the cases have been confirmed as AFM. The cause of the illness has not yet been determined.

Third Item:

Whooping cough, a potentially life-threatening childhood illness, all but disappeared in the 1940s after a vaccine was developed. But in recent decades, the illness has been making a comeback. Changes in the vaccine and waning immunity are likely contributing to the resurgence of the illness, according to experts. [BOB: Who are these ‘experts’?]

In 2012, the United States had the highest number of whooping cough cases in more than 50 years with 48,277 reported cases and 20 deaths. Most of the deaths occurred among infants, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The highly contagious respiratory illness is not always on the radar of doctors and can be mistaken for a cold, bronchitis, reflux. The Georgia Department of Health said it’s not uncommon for someone to see two, even three doctors before getting a proper diagnosis.

Fourth Item:

Pertussis cases are up in Douglas County. Infants and children are particularly at risk.

The Health Department said there is an unusually high number of whooping cough cases.

So far, there have been about 65 reported cases this year compared to 25 last year.

While it is preventable by vaccine, infants younger than six months are too young to vaccinated.

-The fact of the matter is there are two main causes for these increases in Typhus, Polio, Whooping Cough — and many other illnesses — that we thought had been eradicated:

1. Too many people are coming into this country from Third World Countries, where these sicknesses are blooming;

2. Enough parents in America, who are legally here, are not getting their children vaccinated.

Combine the two and you have a potential recipe for a Health Disaster.

The former is easily fixable: CLOSE THE BORDER to Illegal Immigrants and tighten the health restrictions for the Legal Immigrants.

The latter is a lot harder to combat.  It involves changing the mindset of those who deign to put the lives of their children at risk for permanent physical disabilities and, perhaps even, death.

What is that mindset?

Specifically, it is the mentality that says beware of Science.  It is ‘Scientism’ — a belief that science is subject to Ideology.  And the Ideology of the day is to Reject the careful studies that have been performed numerous times in favor of the theories that help promote the System Of Ideas you follow.

Reject the Wisdom in favor of the Whim.

Generally, it is the mindset, the psyche, that permits one to adhere to an Idea, despite the evidence that, in Real Life, that Ideology doesn’t work*.

‘[Father Brown:] It’s drowning all your old rationalism and scepticism, it’s coming in like a sea; and the name of it is superstition.’ The first effect of not believing in God is to believe in anything….

—Emile Cammaerts

This is the Triumph of Ideology over Life…and another symptom of The Present Crisis.

If there’s some collateral damage, for some others that don’t share our view, well so be it.

    I thought these basic disease control items were well settled.

    Thanks to the regressive left, not anymore.

      Not if it interferes with their Sacred Ideology.

      Watch. The tide will turn when and if it becomes useful in this area for it to turn.

    Another reason is selfishness/laziness. Vaccines are nearly completely safe but not absolutely risk free. Many don’t get their kids vaccinated for what ever reason because they believe they don’t have to if everybody else does.
