When will we learn? Obviously: never

Nihil sub sole novum. This is a Latin expression meaning that there’s nothing new under the sun. It first appeared in Latin in Saint Jerome’s translation of the Bible (from Hebrew and Greek). You can find it in Ecclesiastes 1:9. In the original Hebrew, it reads asאֵין כָּל חָדָשׁ תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ‎ (sounds like this: en kol chadásh táchat hashámesh).

Why this return to classics?

Because it still holds true. Even so many centuries, millennia, even, later, it still holds true.

What follows is a verbatim quotation from a book that was published in 2014. Read what the author has to say first, and a few more details about his (and the book’s) background will follow afterwards.

In a chapter describing how the pharmaceutical establishment, with medical establishment’s eager help, creates new diseases so they can develop new medications or devices to treat them, there is a sub-chapter named:

Turn a non-illness into a crisis, e.g. Tamiflu

“As a GP (general practitioner),” the chapter opens, “I was taught that flu was basically a self-limiting illness. Patients who caught it should stay at home, deal with their symptoms and not ‘bother’ the doctor. A few elderly or very young patients could develop serious complications, and might need to be treated for secondary for secondary infections and suchlike. Other than that, there was not much to do.”

And what a stunning, unexpected surprise: “Then, suddenly, flu became a killing monster that must be treated with drugs,” the chapter continues. “I (meaning the GP mentioned above) was working in local surgeries and OOH (Out of Hours) during the winter of 2009/10 when the ‘great swine flu pandemic of terror’ erupted.”

The paragraphs that follow describe the current artificial terror campaign with alarming precision, even though the author writes about events of a dozen years ago, and the book itself was published seven years ago.

The same scenario: a virus coming from China (of all places). Authorities panicking like nobody’s business. A big pharmaceutical company offering a vaccine that some insist should be made mandatory. A number of physicians (labelled as experts) expressing their horror and supporting the official line that doom is coming unless everybody gets inoculated using this wonderful and powerful Tamiflu concoction. All kinds of limits imposed on citizens and the citizens obey because they are scared beyond belief.

Except: the vaccine maker, a corporation named Roche, has never revealed all the tests their new product had undergone, and even those tests that were made public were worse than suspect. It would turn out that the experts who were egging the authorities on to show that they knew how to handle a crisis, had been all linked to Roche in one way or another. Those would-be experts’ bank accounts grew like forest mushrooms after a light spring rain. The pharmaceutical giant was not generous just because of their management’s kind hearts, obviously. And still, even knowing about these sordid details, the powers-that-be would still cite these people of questionable bias as they would Solomon the Wise.

The author proves with great precision the irregularities in inventing the new disease, in making up the new wonder-vaccine, in the serious omissions committed in testing and in releasing the test details. He has been known for decades for his love of facts.

So, it is about time to reveal who he is: an experienced Scottish physician, named Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, and his book is named Doctoring the Data, with a subheadline reading: How to sort out medical advice from medical nonsense.

How dare he?

The so-called medical establishment hates Dr. Kendrick with an unbecoming passion. Not only because of his 2014 revelations in Doctoring the Data, but also for his earlier book: The Great Cholesterol Con.

Here’s the simple reason: he doesn’t care much for the news releases that claim that experts say something. He demands to know what the experts say, and whether what the experts say is supported by data that can be double-checked (and, if need be, compared to other data).

And here’s the problem: anyone whose career is based on coming up with a theory, making it part of the so-called official science, is loathe to admit that s/he has been wrong all along. While human, it is not a wholly scientific approach: real science is characterized by the knowledge that knowledge develops, as does our experience.

Add to it today’s media with their illiterate arrogance, and you have a deadly mix.

The shocking thing is that we humans are unable to learn from our past experiences. Facts that Dr. Malcolm Kendrick describes with such chilling precision return to haunt us again just a dozen years later, they are literally the same, and yet, not many pay attention.

What’s happening? Nihil sub sole novum.
