Quarantining Their Way To A Prison State: CDC Regs Point To Scary New Future Of Forced Medical Compliance
In the futuristic sci-fi movie “12 Monkeys,” after the remnants of humanity are forced to underground to scratch out a shabby new civilization, ordinary people are imprisoned in cot-sized bunks where they live out their days, strapped down with chicken-wire as guards patrol on catwalks above. They are locked down until the scientists who run things–a group of white-coated weirdoes who are researching time travel in order to stop the outbreak cataclysm that destroyed civilization–call up an individual for their latest experiment.
These were the images conjured up by the latest announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Health and Human Services, of proposed regulation changes that would grant the CDC broad new quarantine powers, changes that have people across the political spectrum crying foul.
And let’s be clear: these proposed regulations are not typical, not by any means. They are disturbingly broad, and signal a cavalier usurpation of rights we all take for granted should some disease erupt–including the right to choose what medications to put into your body.
But this isn’t just some Hollywood movie type of dramatic outbreak in which the hero saves a plucky little girl from the jaws of death at the hands of the infected or something.
These bureaucrats have proposed granting themselves the following:
• The power to apprehend and detain anyone, including healthy people
• The power to detain entire groups of people
• The power to prevent a citizen from ending a conversation with a CDC official(!) From the proposed rules: “When an apprehension occurs, the individual is not free to leave or discontinue his/her discussion with an HHS/CDC public health or quarantine officer.”
• The power to detain people indefinitely, without charge, without opportunity to challenge the detention
Some are even saying that the language reads in such a way that the CDC is granting itself the right to administer vaccines on people–whether they want them or not. Here’s the relevant passage:
“The provisions contained herein provide additional clarity to various safeguards to prevent the importation and spread of communicable diseases affecting human health into the United States and interstate.”
And the diseases the CDC has in mind range from genuinely frightening ones, to some that make you scratch your head. For instance, Ebola is mentioned 330 times in the text. Okay, that is a scary disease, sure.
But measles is mentioned 186 times.
Who is the CDC looking to quarantine here–and possibly vaccinate against their will?
Interestingly, the current disease-panic du jour, the Zika virus is not mentioned once.
But measles? This is a generally mild, self-limiting disease that, even if there is an outbreak, isn’t likely to kill or permanently harm anyone. Why then is it being equated with a horrific, deadly disease like Ebola? What kind of controls is the CDC envisioning imposing on people?
Important to keep in mind here is that the language contains nothing pertaining to informed consent, a standard provision of the Geneva Conventions, to which the U.S. is signatory under the law. The Nuremburg Code states:
“The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”
The only thing that seems to be absolutely essential to the frightening technocrats who drafted this proposal is their absolute power.
And you know what they way about that.
