“Among all criminals and murderers (at Auschwitz) the most dangerous type is the criminal physician.” Miklos Nyiszli, prisoner and pathologist to Dr. Joseph Mengele at Auschwitz.”
During the late 70s I attended a meet and greet for the new president of Florida Technological University (later known as the University of Central Florida), a Colonial scholar who gave a brief lecture on his field. At the end he asked for questions from the students.
A black male student asked the president if the Declaration of Independence includes every citizen, why did our leaders keep black Americans as slaves, who had no rights as free people in that period.
His reply: I’m sorry to say this but to our leaders at that time, “Blacks were considered, at best, a sub-species of the human race.”
There was silence and then the questions continued. That said it all.
We often talk about other nations and groups bad behavior throughout history but cruel, evil crimes against those without power also happened in America during much of the last century. Government officials (doctors) were very active in human experiments that would make the Nazis proud. None of the guilty, even those still alive, have ever been brought to justice for what can surely qualify for crimes against humanity. Among the victims are the black race, the poor of every race, and orphans. But sometimes, government doctors and scientists would also introduce dangerous materials into the American public, to measure the effect on humans. Every group listed above were the victims of such studies during part of the same time frame. The goal was the same, what effect would diseases or harmful elements introduced into the body have on the victim’s body and mind. They were often not told of the dangers that could occur.
An example is the Tuskegee Syphilis Study in Macon County, Alabama from 1932 to 1972 by the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS). They “sponsored an observational study of syphilis in black men.”
“Six hundred black men, 399 with syphilis and 201 without, were observed for forty years to chart the effects of untreated syphilis. Perhaps the most famous example of unethical modern medical research in the United States…”
The victims of this experiment gave the doctors verbal approval for the study but were not told the details. In 1932 Dr. Taliaferro Clark, USPHS, proposed changing the project to “investigating the course of untreated syphilis.” The doctors got the support of local area doctors to not treat the black victims for syphilis. The victims were told they were being treated for “bad blood“, but received no treatment.
Eunice Rivers, a black nurse, was hired to follow their health and to secure approval for autopsies. She gave the “volunteers” “spring tonic” and aspirin medicines, which did nothing for their medical problems.
During World War II, the doctors at the Tuskegee Syphilis Study got “draft boards…to lift the requirement of syphilis treatment for study participants…” These were American citizens who were subject to their country’s draft while the doctors were observing the patients develop horrible symptoms and eventually die. This, even after the development of penicillin was available.
“In spite of these efforts, by the early 1950s many of the men had secured some treatment on their own. By 1952, almost 30 percent of the test subjects had received penicillin, although only 7.5 percent had received what could be considered adequate doses.
As a result of this scientific study, “28 of the men had died directly of syphilis, 100 were dead of related complications, 40 of their wives had been infected, and 19 of their children had been born with congenital syphilis.”
There is a long list of crimes that government linked doctors and scientists have committed against victims in the twentieth century in the United States. The Americans picked to undergo these medical tests were the powerless, including those in prison, who were easy to coerce into potentially deadly experiments but were often not given the facts of the study, including the dangers involved. Their ability to take experiments to the next level is obvious, given the “noble cause” doctors believe is their calling. Eventually they will find that other subjects can be used, such as dissidents and enemies of the state.
Studies, experiments and torture on prisoners will become acceptable and the definition of torture changed by the nation’s leaders. This is now the New World Order. Every citizen will then know where they stand. The end of life as we knew it is over.
Over the next 38 years our world will become controlled by an integrated global security police force. No American citizen will have guns. USNORTHCOM will control order in North America. The task of assigning biometric ID cards is in the final stages of the Americas, including the United States. Inter-connected databases will mean there will be no place you can hide. And dissidents will become volunteers for medical studies.
Here are a couple of examples of American doctors behaving badly:
1943: Refrigeration experiment conducted on sixteen mentally disabled patients who were placed in refrigerated cabinets at 30 degrees Farenheit, for 120 hours, at University of Cincinnati Hospital, “to study the effect of frigid temperature on mental disorders.”
1946-1953: Atomic energy Commission studies of mentally disabled school children fed (with Quaker Oats and) radioactive isotopes at Fernald and Wrentham schools.
