Lots of footage, but definitely worth watching.
I see this more or less as an explanation of why there is so little criticism of vaccination policy from the healthcare sector and why the doctors who do are silenced.
In all of this, keep in mind that at present so-called physicians have taken over the role of politicians and politicians and CEOs have taken the role of physicians.
And oh oh how they have been deceived !
Follow the money. A very informative series (still) on YT by Pakhuis De Zwijger.
And perhaps a piece of history will clarify things even more for you.

How Rockefeller Created the Company of Western Medicine
As an alternative medicine practitioner, I have many conversations with patients who are disenchanted with the current Western medicine system. This disappointment has to do with the quality of care they receive as well as with the way Western medicine is practiced. This post is a brief historical look at the affairs of Western medicine. This post does not directly address the patient care aspect, but focuses on the origins of our current medical business model.
As someone who has been practicing medicine for over 10 years, I try to keep an open mind and appreciate both the good and the bad that coexist in the western system. To understand our current medical system, it is helpful to look back at the history of medicine in America. The business story of Western medicine, in the modern sense, begins with John D. Rockefeller (1839-1937). Rockefeller is "widely regarded as the richest American of all time and the richest person in modern history." Rockefeller is probably best known for gaining a monopoly on the US oil market, but many people haven't heard the rest of the story.
By the early 20s, Rockefeller controlled 90% of all petroleum refineries in America through ownership of the Standard Oil Corporation (which was later split into Mobil, Chevron, Exxon, etc.). At the same time, around 1900, the scientific world was getting excited about new “petrochemicals” and the ability to make a variety of new compounds from oil. Some of the first products derived from petrochemicals were plastics, but organic chemists knew that oil had the potential to create much more than plastic bags.
During the same era (early 1900s), scientists did pioneering work to understand the basic mechanics of life and human health. It was during this time that most of the essential vitamins were discovered including B1, B2, biotin, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin D, etc. By identifying these vitamins, science took a huge step forward and established simple vitamin remedies able to cure ailments. that were caused by vitamin deficiencies (such as scurvy and rickets). And, of course, scientists were also involved in research to recreate synthetic versions of these vitamins in a lab. In 1935, vitamin C became the first vitamin to be artificially synthesized in Switzerland. Rockefeller was smart enough to see this as a great opportunity, with the possibility that vitamins and medicines could be developed from petroleum. He saw the opportunity to control and monopolize multiple industries at once: petroleum, chemical and medical. And of course petrochemicals were ideal from a business perspective because they could be patented, owned and sold for high profits.
But there was a big problem with Rockefeller's plan. Natural and herbal remedies were very popular in America in the early XNUMXs. Nearly half of the medical colleges and physicians in America practiced holistic medicine, drawing on extensive knowledge from Europe and Native American traditions. Rockefeller knew he had to take out the competition to gain complete control over the medical industry. So for starters, Rockefeller used his huge oil money to buy part of the German pharmaceutical company IG Farben. (you can look up this company's involvement in WWII). Now that he ran a pharmaceutical company, he was able to move forward with his plan to get out of the competition.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, there were several doctors and healing methods in America. Some of the medical specialties included chiropractic, naturopathy, homeopathy, holistic medicine and herbal medicine. To eliminate competition from Rockefeller, he hired a contractor named Abraham Flexner to submit a report to Congress in 1910. This report "concluded" that there were too many doctors and medical schools in America and that all natural cures that had been around for hundreds of years were unscientific quackery. The report called for standardization of medical education, with only the AMA (another monopoly) allowed to grant medical school licenses in the U.S.
Sure, Flexner's report had some valid points, but unfortunately the motives for the report were completely driven by my Rockefeller's desire to have complete control over the medical system. Based on the report, Congress acted on Flexner's recommendations and changed the laws governing medical practice. Incredibly, allopathic medicine became the standard modality, although at the time the main methods of treatment were bloodletting, surgery (rather barbaric at the time) and the injection of toxic heavy metals (lead and mercury) to supposedly "displace disease"!
With these legal changes, Rockefeller teamed up with Andrew Carnegie and began funding medical schools across America on the strict condition that they only teach allopathic medicine. Through the power of their huge “grants”, this powerful team systematically dismantled the previous curricula of these medical schools, removing any mention of the healing power of herbs or natural treatments. Teachings about nutrition and other natural (non-drug) treatments were also completely removed from medical programs.
After removing traditional medicine from schools, Rockefeller made sure to secure his monopoly by launching a targeted smear campaign against his competitors. Homeopathy and natural medicines were discredited and demonized through the newspapers and other media of the time. Some doctors were even jailed for using natural medicinal treatments, including treatments that had been used safely and effectively for decades. In a very short time all medical universities were homogenized. All students learned the same allopathic system and medicine was now defined as a process of prescribing patented drugs. “A pill for a sick person” became the mindset of American medicine.
A shocking fact that I discovered while researching this post was that Rockefeller did not stop at the US borders. He actually went to China spread western medicine. Hearing this really sent chills down my spine! Rockefeller was not satisfied with eradicating traditional medicine in America, he saw a bigger market on the other side of the world and wanted to remove traditional Chinese medicine from China! Fortunately, his venture in China largely failed and the practice of traditional Chinese medicine continued for centuries to come. To quickly summarize what happened in China, the China Medical Board (CMB) was founded in 1914 by the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) and received a $12 million grant. The aim of the RF was to “modernize medical education and improve the practice of medicine in China”. They started building a hospital in Beijing (Beijing Union Medical College, opened in 1919),
In short, the diligent work of Rockefeller and Carnegie was a crushing "success". They crushed grassroots underfunded competition and created our current medical system. This system continues today, with “Big Pharma” making large “donations” to medical schools in exchange for teaching the medical students to use their proprietary drugs. As part of this system, many alternative treatments are criminalized. For example, it is illegal by law to treat cancer by any modality except chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation. It is actually a criminal offense for a doctor to treat cancer with anything other than these three modalities. Why is this the case? Follow the money. The average cost of cancer treatment is $150.000, so it's clear that Rockefeller and his predecessors were keen to maintain a monopoly on it. And of course,
Hopefully this post will shed a little light on the history of our current medical system. At the very least, we can all be less surprised when "patients" are treated like "customers" and when drugs cost thousands of dollars a month. It shouldn't surprise us either that we are faced with the fact that the COST of medical care is number 1 in America, while the QUALITY of our medical care is number 37, just below Costa Rica! [ Opens in a new window 1 , Opens in a new window 2 ]. Unfortunately, these are the natural effects that occur when our drug system is run as a mega-corporation rather than a service to the people.
Finally, you may notice that there are no grainy black and white photos of John D. Rockefeller in this post. Perhaps you can guess why – all Rockefeller's images are all "owned" and must be used for payment. The monopoly stands.
