“We are being governed by medical bureaucrats that are part of a mad, insane cult of vaccinists,” he told the rally.
We in Australia have our own version of Trumpists.
United Australia Party leader Craig Kelly an ex-Liberal party member who was for months pushing the scientifically unproven and dangerous animal vaccines to ward off the virus has convinced many thousands of the population to become anti-vax, anti-science and anti-government.
This is a dangerous man who was tolerated by our Prime Minister for many weeks until public opinion made him basically push him from the Liberal party into the extreme Clive Palmer created United Australia Party.
There are no laws to shut this man or people like him down. Unproven claims from conspiracists, fringe scientists, religious nuts, false media reports and lies through right wing TV and social media is a great amount of information sources to close down, therefore it would likely be a fruitless exercise.
What is disturbing is the amount of people who fall for lies from such biased controlled sources. What is even more disturbing these people are becoming just as hateful and abusive as the Trump worshippers in the US, and I fear far more violence for Australia in the future.
I believe many of these people have been media and socially manipulated to extremes and have now succumbed to an advanced stage of indoctrination. Similar to religious indoctrination the persons brain will reach a certain limit of repetitive information (we all have different limits and tolerances just as some people cannot be hypnotised) and the brain will actually physically change so much they are locked into the information that was willingly absorbed and has now become strong passionate and emotional beliefs that only they and their comrades will know the real truth, even at the expense of unequivocal evidence and long established facts that are automatically claimed as lies.
Many indoctrinated people will never break the chains, however sometimes some are triggered by something usually from the subconscious mind to investigate and then realise to their embarrassment and many regrets that they were so easily sucked in to become a slave to a brain manipulating ideological belief.
NOTE I am not affiliated to any political party (who would?) but I definitely am an atheist (who would not want to be?) and I am not a qualified doctor, neuroscientist or politician etc. However I have formed the opinions in this post and in the whole website from various peer reviewed publications and creditable scientific web sites including the non extreme main stream reasoned news web sites as much as possible.
