AMA Journal: Make Participation In Vaccine Trials Mandatory

An article published by the American Medical Association’s Virtual Mentor journal advocates making participation in vaccine trials mandatory, arguing that people should be forced to take experimental shots in a similar vein to how jury service is compulsory.

The article, written by Oxford University’s Susanne Sheehy and Joel Meyer, is entitled Should Participation in Vaccine Clinical Trials be Mandated?

Concerned about the “distressing decline in the numbers of healthy volunteers who participate in clinical trials,” the piece argues that “Compulsory involvement in vaccine studies” should be considered for the “greater good of society.”

“Many societies already mandate that citizens undertake activities for the good of society; in several European countries registration for organ-donation has switched from “opt-in” (the current U.S. system) to “opt-out” systems (in which those who do not specifically register as nondonors are presumed to consent to donation) [10], and most societies expect citizens to undertake jury service when called upon. In these examples, the risks or inconvenience to an individual are usually limited and minor. Mandatory involvement in vaccine trials is therefore perhaps more akin to military conscription, a policy operating today in 66 countries. In both conscription and obligatory trial participation, individuals have little or no choice regarding involvement and face inherent risks over which they have no control, all for the greater good of society.”

Great comment, Gene! Hasn't the libertarian idea always been, to let the people who want the job done, be the ones to do the job first? I mean, that is what freedom is, right. And liberty is to not infringe on others - except if they want you to, of course.

The problem is, those who want to infringe on you are not libertarian. They are something else. So they think it is all right to do whatever they want to you.

Here is what is very interesting about libertarianism... the second part of libertarianism. If they don't leave you alone, then you have the libertarian right and duty to go after them! You then have the right of self-protection that allows you to be aggressive, if necessary, in protecting yourself. And this extends to protecting your family, those whose lives you have been entrusted with the protecting of.

What are we going to do about chemtrails? What am I able to do more than just to inform others? Anything?

This is a great idea!  We start with the researchers, then the politicians...

Sheehy and Meyer should not find it unusual that many of us are ready to make it mandatory that they participate in a chain gang of their peers. Or let them opt out by participating instead as subjects in testing bioweapon effectiveness. After all, it would be for "the common good"! Ask Dr. Mengle or Dr. Frankenstein.
