It’s Only The Nuremberg Code


Goethe-false freedom

The responses to Dr. Peterson’s tweet prove this aphorism to be true.

There is much tsk tsking among the comments about the Nuremberg code only referring to medical experiments – of which most of the respondents assume the vaxxes are not. That’s technically incorrect as EUA (emergency use authorization) by definition makes them experimental. Trials are not complete.

This is one of the more lucid examples of such criticism:

nuremberg response tweetBecause they will always TELL you before they remove your rights

They are invoking the slippery slope fallacy argument, advising Dr. Peterson, and us, that there’s nothing to see here so just comply and move along – for the common good. The general sentiment coming from the progressives seems to be, “it’s no big deal, you Luddites; it’s just about public health, nothing more, nothing less.” So get out of the way and let history proceed to repeat itself…again.

At this point it seems important to inject, for the hundredth time or so, that this is not about mRNA vaccines. I realize this is an unpopular opinion around here but I personally believe that mRNA delivery systems will be proved to be mostly safe and hugely beneficial in fighting viruses and many other areas of medical advancement in the long run, but you shouldn’t have to believe that. Worse, you shouldn’t be forced to receive one if you object. Which is why I will defend to my death your right to refuse to comply.

So to that special grade of morons who think freedom of choice is no big deal when it’s the issue of “the greater good” at stake I give you Mark Nolan’s assessment of the issue to date:

And Only One Chance To Live It

It's only a mask, they said.

It's only three weeks to flatten the curve, they said.

It’s only until Easter.

It’s only until summer, it’s only until winter.

It’s only Joe Wickes, Netflix, podcasts and Zoom drinks parties at 5 in the afternoon.

It's only a restaurant, a pub, a museum, an art gallery, a library.

It's only a school, it's only children.

It's only an office, it's only an office party.

It's only a school nativity, a sports day.

It's only the vulnerable.

It's only one injection.

It's only two, it's only three.

It's only furlough.

It’s only borrowing, it's only half a trillion.

It's only mental health, it's only cancer, dementia, heart disease, Type II diabetes.

It's only a lump, it's only a bad back, it's only a headache.

It’s only a funeral.

It's only Christmas.

It's only a gym, it's only a family business, it's only a job, it's only a marriage, it's only a roof over your head.

It's only your bills, it's only your past, your present and your future.

It’s only your degree.

It’s only your family abroad.

It’s only teenagers.

It’s only young people.

It’s only the old.

It's only arrows in the supermarket, it's only a squirt of hand sanitiser, as you go in.

It's only a Perspex screen, it's only a one in, one out, policy.

It's only a nightclub, it's only a football match, it's only a mask.

It's only proof that you've been vaccinated.

It’s only a health pass, it’s only temporary, it’s only permanent.

It's only essential shops, it's only the difference between travelling the world and not.

It's only a request, it's only a mandate, it's only the law.

It's only for your own good, it's only for the best.

It’s only for you.

It’s only for others.

It's only three weeks, it's only a mask.

It's only a Zoom meeting, rather than face-to-face, it's only a zoom lesson, rather than being in the classroom.

It’s only a playground, a tennis court, a swimming pool.

It’s only a cup of coffee on a park bench.

It's only a cancelled event.

It's only your opinion, it's only the science, it's only advice, it's only an order.

It's only a small march, it's only a conspiracy theory, it's only a journalist, it's only a troublemaker.

It's only democracy, it's only a vote, it's only your rights, it's only the Nuremberg code, it's only freedom.

It's only history, it's only our values, it's only what others fought for.

It’s only the next three weeks, it's only next year, it's only forever.

Except, it’s only one life.

And only one chance to live it.

And remember:  It’s Only The Nuremberg Code. It was written by a bunch of old white men. Just like our Constitution. Therefore it must be cancelled. For the greater good.
