WHO Guidelines For Pro-Vaxxers To Argue With Vaccine Skeptics Reveal How Nervous They’re Getting

You Can Say NO to Vaccine Mandates Here:
“Know your enemy and know yourself,” said Chinese general and Art of War author Sun-Tzu all the way back in the sixth century BCE. “If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
Ancient words we would do well to try to live by today, especially in this era of hyper-polarized news and information. In a world where everyone can pick their own news sources and no real consensus on anything exists anymore, it is easy to get caught up in an echo chamber in which the only ideas you ever hear are ones you already agree with.

This is comforting, however it does us no good intellectually. If your ideas are never held up to challenge, then you never have an opportunity to hone your arguments, to adjust your beliefs in the face of new evidence, or to stretch those ideas into new, more challenging, more sophisticated permutations.


Which brings us back to Sun Tzu and knowing your enemy. The World Health organization recently published a 44-page document titled “How To Respond To Vocal Vaccine Deniers In Public.” It is a good exercise in “knowing the enemy” to give this pamphlet a once-over.

As more and more evidence quietly trickles in demonstrating the problems with vaccines–particularly the HPV vaccines like Gardasil that were rushed to market and led to a windfall for Merck pharmaceuticals and their current vice president of vaccines who just happened to be head of the CDC at the time Gardasil was approved by that agency–it seems the big boys are getting nervous that this whole kooky anti-vaccine thing might really take off.

Countries like Japan have refused to recommend the vaccine, and a recent protest in Colombia where thousands of young women and girls have been sickened by the vaccine have raised the alarm of many people around the world: what if they aren’t telling us the truth? What if vaccines are a money-making scheme? (What is uncontroversial is that there is money to be made in vaccines; companies like Merck and GlaxoSmithKline rake in billions of dollars every year from them, as does the U.S. government in the form of royalties.)

Tellingly, some of the WHO’s recommendations seem to indicate a desire to stich their fingers in the ears:

“Your mind stores thousands of pieces of information which it uses to warn you that something is wrong,” the pamphlet reads. “Trust your instincts when you feel uncom-fortable, get away from whatever situation you are in. You will only know if you were wrong if you ignore your instincts–is it worth the risk?”

Oh my. So if you are confronted with someone who disagrees with your opinion…run away?

Seriously, take a moment to check out this delightful product of the best the minds of the WHO have to offer. It’s good for a laugh or two, if nothing else.
