"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of
evil to one who is striking at the root"
- Henry David Thoreau
Culture, Law and Economics
This blog often addresses concerns about vaccine safety - but vaccine adverse effects also belong to a pattern of problems in technology today : namely, of products or practices that serve us in important ways ; but are then at some point found to have intolerable downsides effects that, perversely, we're unable to challenge or change.
We tend to notice these problems only one at a time as they affect our lives. As many as we recognize, we fight vigorously ; but we may not notice the high number of them, or the pattern of factors keeping them in place. We fill the air with the leaves and branches of evil, so to speak - but do not discover its roots. Despite even heroic efforts, harm and tragedies of this kind multiply multiply, threatening our whole planet and species.
It's now the case that, although our thinking is overwhelmingly scientific, some of the greatest dangers we face have been created by science ; and that once established, they may be almost impossible to un-establish. Our greatest strengths, so to speak, have become our greatest vulnerabilities. How does this happen ?
Causes these many, serious problems have in common are not at first easy to discern.
Our modern situation has evolved gradually, over a period of centuries. It includes not just our outer, material circumstances, but our concepts - how we understand ourselves and our world. Because they've also evolved gradually, our concepts are highly familiar to us - even to the extent that they become automatic : habits of thinking we take for permanent truths, and never challenge or question. Thus while the problems we face cause us pain, or even extreme harm, they don't necessarily change the way we think
And the dangers we face are not limited to technology. Our great economic achievements, our worldwide, efficient mass systems of production and distribution are accompanied by deepening inequalities of wealth, and in various countries, the specter of economic collapse. Likewise the realm of rights and government, our means to improve freedoms and protections in our lives, is prone to infringements on civil and human rights, and a drift into catastrophic wars.
What is perverse, seemingly in every sphere of human social life, is the contrast of the immense ability and goodwill of human beings everywhere - and our almost magnetic trajectory towards instability and destruction. On the one hand the goodness and potential of humanity ; on the other fear, doubt and hatred, deepening into an abyss
What are the reasons for this - and equally important, what is the way out ?
In the aftermath of World War I an idea emerged, that shed crucial light on these questions. This perspective identified three core realms of human social life as
1) Cultural and spiritual life, including education, science, medicine, religion, the arts and other activities arising from the gifts and abilities of individual human beings
2) The realm of laws, rights and government, serving the need of all human beings to be free from injury, harm, coercion or fraud
3) Economic life, encompassing production and distribution of goods to meet the physical needs of life common to all human beings
Each of these areas, though different, is essential to human life, and provides something beneficial and necessary. Problems arise, from this perspective, when any of these realms encroaches on another, disrupting or intruding into its natural sphere of activities
Although vigorously presented and discussed in Germany after the war, the will could not be found for more. And amid conditions and events that soon led to a still more devastating war, it could not yet take root practically. It was not lost, however, and remains as a seed, waiting to grow into a greater, more fruitful social movement. This perspective is known as the threefold social idea
Renewal - Or the Abyss ?
The threefold social idea is not an ideology, but an observation of real phenomena ; of factors that lead to health in human social life - or to progressive social destruction. It also not a program or prescription for society, or a rigid party platform. Whoever understands it does not force it on others, but rather thinks and feels differently in social situations, and makes choices contributing naturally to social health, increasingly in his or her affairs. For our present ominous situation to grow into "the threefold social order", what's needed is that as many people as possible understand the needs of culture, law and economic life, and the necessary boundaries between them. The linked article below gives an overview with examples, and a view of where this idea might lead, in a positive sense. More resources on this theme are listed as well !

Thanks to Vaccine Education League of America for sharing elsewhere :
"The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) provides immunity to the vaccine manufacturers for the adverse reactions, vaccine related injury and death resulting from the administration of all vaccines which are on the CDC schedule. There are conditions which extend this same protection from liability to the doctors administering the vaccines. People assume that means the doctors and their staff are immune from the liability however there are conditions that must exist for doctors to be covered by that exemption for liability, such as the requirement that they provide their patient with the same warnings that are included by the manufacturer on the vaccine insert (not an information sheet) and those inserts are almost never provided to the patient, even if you ask for them. The same act also does NOT cover medical malpractice, malfeasance, or neglect and if the doctor ever took the time to educate themselves on the dangers of adverse reactions they likely wouldn't risk losing their malpractice insurance by negligently administering the vaccine anyway. If they refuse to educate themselves, especially when the manufacturers are protecting themselves by providing the inserts, that constitutes malpractice, malfeasance, and neglect.
Does that mean I can still hold them accountable ? YES it does. Just holding them accountable by the use of loop holes and alternative approaches to suit.
The existence of a properly worded sworn Affidavit and Notice of Liability in a child's medical record is likely to make all nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, etc not willing to accept the personal liability and administer the vaccine anyway. If they do administer it they can be held accountable.
The key is to provide them with proper Notice and in the form of an Affidavit which is a legal document. If they ignore the Affidavit, they are assuming the liability when they administer the vaccine. This type of Affidavit should be added to the medical record of each child and a copy filed with any applicable school nurse or administrator and it's helpful to keep a copy on hand to add to the record of any ER or urgent care if needed. You DO NOT need a separate Affidavit for each child. One Affidavit from a parent or guardian will be sufficient with copies made to each child's file.
Those who know me already know my background at law. I do provide these to those who wish to order them but they are not free. These are the same ones we offered from the law firm with a $250 retainer but I offer them now for $25 each to make them more easily accessible to parents who have a need for them. If you are comfortable enough with your knowledge of law to draft a properly worded Affidavit, get it done. If not you can order one from me from my online shop but you do not have permission to use my intellectual property for redistribution (you can't resell my work). When checking out make sure I have the name of the parent/guardian requesting the Affidavit, the County and State where it will be notarized, and en email address to send it to you since these are delivered electronically."

Should you be concerned that measles
gives you "immune amnesia" ?
Recently you may have heard about a research study indicating getting measles can cause "immune amnesia", and put you at serious risk of harm from other infections. Having - like almost everyone in my generation - HAD measles, my first thought was "What ?"
Then I encountered this article, by an immunologist, that explores the matter more deeply, and undoes some of the fear mongering this research has given rise to
I'm grateful for an article like this - and to the people who shared it where I could find it. As small an act as it is in the current poisoned atmosphere, it's important that the deeper science be imprinted in the world somewhere, alongside the disinformation
IMO it's a scientific and actually, spiritual deed, that we need as much as we need food, or any physical substance !

Jeff Smith RN, born 1950. A registered nurse since 1984 - but holistic in my outlook to health since probably around 1968. Living Waters Wellness considers not just the health of the physical body, but our soul and spirit, our social forms, our environment - and as a matter of fact, our whole earth. It's a new website, and a work in progress - but by all means, have a look around !
