Trust Billy Corgan to involve himself in both the swine flu and vaccination debates in one fell swoop: taking to his blog on Tuesday, he sought to enlighten his readers as to the "propaganda" surrounding the latest swine flu scare, and called into question the efficacy of the vaccines being administered throughout the country. Emphasizing his lack of a medical degree, Corgan claims: "I am more focused on the vibration that has us all so fearful: both for how the fear affects our thinking, and how, in our fear, we attract the worst, and, in conjunction with that, how those fears are used by others without integrity to try to create a power against Us to promote discomfort and dis-ease."
He then goes on to claim that swine flu might be a man-made disease, and then suggests that this pandemic might be "The End." He then states: "I for one will not be taking the vaccine. I do not trust those who make the vaccines, or the apperatus behind it all to push it on us thru fear. This is not judgment; it is a personal decision based on research, intuition, conversations with my doctor and my ‘family’. If the virus comes to take me Home, that is between me and the Lord. I have put up some of these links to inspire the question in you, so that perhaps you can make a better decision for yourself. That is what holistic life is about: a willingness to look at all the facts or opinions."
Corgan closes with a discussion of the oft-dissected "climate of fear," and closes with the following statement: "The deeper message here might be that people will soon be ready to abandon the idea of a paternalistic system that governs this world. Before doing so, we must face down our deeper fears about our own liberty and tolerance. The time is coming when we will cast votes with our hearts and not our minds."
Thank you, Billy Corgan, for your amazing insight.
