Thank you kindly for this wonderfully enlightening article. I’m afraid there will not be enough prison room nor gallows for the “just following orders “ crowd. From the beginning most innocently felt I was on the wrong side of issues. Now the truth and reality are beginning to be exposed. Keep up the good work

Masterfully composed and expressed; a rich and thoughtful, clear, perfectly focused comment that, coming from a medical professor and practitioner, is far overdue and most welcome in the present, epic debacle.

The piece should have infectious quality among your peers. Giving voice to a moral conscience, professional decency, and a social wisdom rooted in historical evidence, yours is the equivalent in medicine of Elie Wisel's to all the world in years past.

My Belgian-born mother survived and, later here, carried me to birth, only because a Righteous Christian in Liege secretly protected her Jewish identity and, thus, her very life and relative freedom from -- and at the price of her own life if such protection were discovered by -- the murderous Nazi occupiers until Belgium was liberated in early 1945. The heroes in the ongoing atrocity in our time need to be identified in time and properly recognized.

Your voice is a new crying-out in the wilderness -- at present, this merely sporadic saving effort. It needs to be read and heard, accepted and replicated, but mostly practiced.

True medicine -- in committing a needed, saving set of highly valued actions and not omitting carrying them out, and intentionally not committing an immoral set of condemnable inactions -- must not perish from the collective, trusted vision and imagination of the sick and the diseased. Much healing, perhaps a majority, you may agree, is in fact accomplished by the patient's belief that his or her physician has both the technical power, as well as the dedicated, conscientious courage and will to heal.

And the dedicated diligence to avoid, at all possible costs, a treatment or practice-method that harms more than helps, kills more than saves, deceives more than conscientiously, completely explains -- with full consent granted -- beforehand. The Nuremberg Code must not be relegated to the status of a curious, antiquated attempt to do what's right and good in true medicine by finding it mentioned casually and incidentally, merely footnoted in possibly future "medical" and "public health" texts of a tyrann-authoritarian, transhumanly dystopian age.

I am developing a strong sense that trust in medicine will not be restored and that is a good idea. When have drug companies held patient safety over profits? When have drug makers been completely honest about the effectiveness of their products? This is not an altruistic business. Dishonest lawyers, politicians, bankers are not pampered with efforts to restore faith in them. Dishonest drug makers deserve the loss of trust that is coming.

yep ...sickening beyond belief...breaks my heart so much unnecessary hatred...why can we not just love one another as fellow human beings?...my only consolation is that I believe in the Creator. I know his justice is perfect. Soon he will bring all evil to render an accounting....

Matthew 12: 36  I tell you that men will render an account on Judgment Day

(Ecclesiastes 12:14) For the true God will judge every deed, including every hidden thing, as to whether it is good or bad.

(Romans 14:12) So, then, each of us will render an account for himself to God.

pity for them, but we did not make them behave like that so what they will get they fully deserve, I will not shed a tear. Soon because unless those days are cut short there will be no flesh left...

Matthew 24: 21 for then there will be great tribulation such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again. 22 In fact, unless those days were cut short, no flesh would be saved; but on account of the chosen ones those days will be cut short.
