An interview with a brave dissident doctor
Medicine is a culture of compliance, the people who wind up in the field have been thoroughly conditioned to reflexively obey authority - like most of the people in Nazi Germany, or in the various countries ruled by Communists, or in authoritarian religious cults. Those who would think for themselves, much less rebel, have been filtered out long ago in the process. A joke told amongst organic chemistry PhD students - "Why did the pre-meddie cross the road? Because, naturally, it was a requirement..."
Haven't heard the interview yet, but read the post. Yep, the creation of layers of unaccountable committees with perverse incentives seems par for the course regarding how such docile compliance is ensured in Japan Inc.
A couple of weeks ago, I called for a meeting with the City Board of Education regarding my minimum wage yearly contract work as an Assistant Language Teacher for public schools ... 3 Jr. Highs, 8 elementary schools, and a special needs school. The kids are cool, but some of the teachers practice only 'chain of command' pedagogy, with me as a non-human extension of their teacher centered 'curriculum'. Even though I've lived here 40 years, and speak Japanese, a couple of teachers insist that I play the role of 'dumb' foreigner and leave all untangling of communication problems to the Japanese teacher ... even when the Japanese teacher is ignorant and/or incompetent. Ethno-centric chain of command.
So even though one of the requirements for being hired two years ago was native or near-native Japanese speaking ability, I asked the Board of Education Committee to conduct the meeting in English only, as was commanded of me in some Jr. Highs. As they are barely competent in even basic English greetings, they were aghast ... and so I relented and said gave them the okay to go at it in Japanese only.
They began by asking for my intentions regarding the next academic year. I answered honestly that despite the lack of any English curriculum or quality control of public school teachers, my salary is not paid by the City Board of Education. It is paid by taxes from the parents of the kids living in the local community ... and it was my 'due dilegence (thanks Sasha) to serve them to the best of my ability. By chance, yesterday's MSM govt. news announced a record number of public school teachers had taken more than a month of consecutive leave absence for mental health issues ... a little less than 1% of all public school teachers in Japan ... and the Board of Education knows from my resumé that I had been a teacher-trainer in Japan before most of the committee members or public school teachers had even been born.
They thanked me, ever so politely, but said due to my poor performance as evaluated by the three Jr. High principals (who have never seen my class, and according to teachers, never consulted with them), my contract would not be renewed. Upon asking why, in perfectly polite Japanese, they explained it was because I responded to confused students ... in perfectly polite Japanese. I laughed out loud.
My education, experience, and values were irrelevant. I was just not quite 'foreign' enough for their needs, and foreigners are easily replaceable / disposable parts of the Mammon machine. This is particularly because the Japanese model of public education is pretty similar to the American style or elsewhere in the world ... and geared towards creating a culture of divide-and-conquer competition and blind compliance to authority. Enough to make Kafka tumble up an Escher staircase.
Just now listening to Naomi Wolf's podcast with her husband about the Omnibus Budget bill ... and this is where a lot of working class tax money is being funneled ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabella_Advisors. The contents of this bill are horrifying. Oh damn ... https://naomiwolf.substack.com/p/brian-oshea-analyzes-shocking-details?utm_source=podcast-email%2Csubstack&publication_id=676930&post_id=92575963&utm_medium=email#details
Looking forward to listening to the interview!
So glad to see you zero in on this very much underappreciated issue.
Medical licensing, in all of its guises, is the foundation for the worldwide medical monopoly, and all of the authoritarianism that goes along with such a beast.
Tessa, thank you for keeping us informed about the evil ‘medical boards’. Before all this, I don’t think most of us even knew they existed - I sure didn’t. The last thing I need is to have these evil people ‘protect my health’. What a lie and a sham. And, who is paying for these fancy dinners etc., anyway?
This interview was amazing and so informative. Thank you so much. Integrated medicine is the way to true health. Dr. Dooley's knowledge about immunology has given him great insight and credibility for such a discussion. I am intrigued by the fact that his wife is Russian and you are as well. It only took me a semester in the USSR to grasp the power of programming and propaganda and the evil of a system that crushes the dignity of the individual. My HUGE MISTAKE was to construct a world view that believed the USA and the "western world" had an immunity of the mind and spirit to the tentacles of totalitarianism. How WRONG was I! But I thank God for my stint living under a communist regime, under censorship, and Big Brother's ever watchful eye to develop a mind and a sniffer that was slowly waking, detecting the odor of a captured media in the 90's to being shaken awake by the smelling salt of the plandemic... Chemtah pachnyet! It was interesting to learn about the personality "type" that is chosen for medicine these days and that they will be used until the algorithms are "improved" enough to replace them with a machine. It's, as you so aptly coined the phrase, soft (poh teechonochku) "killing off" of the medical class. Stalin had the doctors murdered. The deep state of today will merely make them obsolete, in the name of public health and the public's health will be the ultimate victim. We will not comply.
Hi again Tessa,
Watching the video now.
25:00 ... Where you recount the Soviet era 'praising the greatness' (of narcissists) ... yes, I am on chapt. 5 of Lobaczewski's 'Political Ponerology' ... a good breakdown of the micro/macro scaling of psychopathology and the totalitarian state ... particularly pathological narcissism.
59:00 ... Yes, Hubris. According the ancient Greeks, arrogant pride that is the sin from which all other sins are derived.
1:05:00 (sigh) ... You Tessa, the good doctor, and myself have long since entered a terminal stage of resistance to blind compliance to self-selecting, narcissistic authority.
Can't really afford it, but cannot afford to let it go ... the combination of your critical thinking skills, moral spine, and infectious laughter have earned you another paying subscription ... if for no other reason, I can't reach out and give you a big hug. That makes three ... Mr. (? Big Surprise) Sage Hana, Margaret Anna Alice, and now ... you. The falling out between Mathew and Sage is a bummer because I like both ... but I guess that's a normal part of the social dynamics of we sometimes social primates. Bonobos are cool.
Stay healthy and fighting, but only occasionally happy. An old quote I am resurrecting in several posts and platforms today ...
''To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.'' — Gustave Flaubert
Cheers from Japan Tessa,
This one post has several important medical papers explained within it.
mRNA "vaccines" for COVID impair the immune response to COVID after the second injection, progressively over passing months, and they especially impair it after a 3rd "booster" shot. An arm of the immune response is activated which ignores the antigen being presented, in this case the "sike protein" of alpha COVID (1/2020 version).
That this is happening on city-wide scales is confirmed by very high COVID levels in sewage of much-"vaccinated" cities.
Another mechanism of immune-suppression is also activated, which suppresses immune surveillance to destroy cancer-cells in the body.
What a refreshing interview! Not once did I feel a jolt of anxiety. Just discussion with interesting information punctuated with humor and glorious smiles - a welcome relief from the worry-wrinkled urgency with which so many of our fellow travelers present themselves. And, I learned a lot: please talk with Bruce Dudley again soon. —You must have more to discuss with him? I hope? Thanks ~
I was on an exchange program with the State University of NY at Albany. We studied in Moscow at the language Institute Maurice Torrez. We stayed in a dorm called DAS in the Cheryomushka "oblast" of Moscow.
My Russian nickname is Katya. From Kathy.
My online name is SalPeenx. Transcription for a Greek word meaning the victory trumpet of the Lord. I don't speak Greek, but I am trying to emulate how the early persecuted church drew a fish in the dirt to find other followers of the Anointed One, the Christ. The word for fish in Greek, ichthus, is an acronym for Jesus. Christ. God's. Son. Savior.
Bless your work. I learned of you as a "member" the C&C Army of Jeff Childers.
Anytime I see the word "Federation" before a group's name, my spidey sense goes off the charts! It usually means a group of non-elected monsters that are deciding what's best for everyone with no exceptions. Today: Medicine. Tomorrow (if we don't say no): The World.
