Words and definitions for understanding and surviving the age of iatrogenocide
The postmodernists (aided and abetted by capital) have done violence to language; we must seize it back
This article is arduous — it’s just a series of dictionary-style definitions of words. My hope though is that it will reward a careful reading, stimulate discussion, and be the sort of article that is bookmarked for later reference.
Why this exercise matters
We live in an era where mainstream society does violence to language. Mainstream society assaults language to the point where words no longer have any meaning. Then they proceed to do violence to people because if words have no meaning then it becomes impossible to hold anyone to account. Examples include toxic injections described as “safe & effective”, riots described as “mostly peaceful”, and surgical castration of autistic children referred to as “gender affirming care”.
One can generally spot the captured words because they look, feel, and sound Orwellian and are usually the result of extensive market research and focus group testing by Pharma (and other corporate) public relations firms.
If we are to survive, we absolutely must take language back from the postmodernists in the mainstream media, in the three letter agencies (CDC, FDA, NIH), and in academia.
In addition, we live in a new era where monopoly capitalism seeks to enslave the world via bioweapons, high tech surveillance, and capture of knowledge-producing industries, the media, and government. So it is incumbent upon us to coin new words to better describe our circumstances.
Below are my contributions to the conversation plus some excellent definitions from friends and allies in the movement.
: bourgeois + technocrat. A middle class person who believes that bureaucratic, managerial, and/or technological approaches can solve any problem and thus we live in the best of all possible worlds. Most Democrats are bougiecrats and some Republicans are too (Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Newt Gingrich). Coined by Toby Rogers, Ph.D., in 2020 to express his dismay at the complete corporate takeover of the Democratic mind.
Used in a sentence: Bougiecrats would rather usher in a thousand-year Pharma Dark Ages than ever admit that they are wrong about vaccines.
: any adverse health outcome (such as disease, injury, infection, drug reaction, disability, or death) caused by a medical intervention (such as surgery, prescription drugs, hospitalization, diagnostic test, medical device, or vaccination).
Used in a sentence: Iatrogenesis exacts a heavy toll — prescription drugs when used as directed are the third leading cause of death and hospital errors are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
: a genocide caused by scientists, doctors, nurses, and/or public health officials, often with the support of official state actors and the corporate sector (especially the pharmaceutical industry). Coined by Charles Ortleb in his book, Iatrogenocide: Notes for a Political Philosophy of Epidemiology and Science. The definition provided here is by Toby Rogers, Ph.D.
Used in a sentence: The CDC childhood vaccine schedule in general and Covid vaccines in particular, because they generate more harms than benefits, are examples of iatrogenocide.
: the quality or state of being worthy, honored, or esteemed.
Discussion: In a former era, dignity was bestowed by others — usually elders who were respected in the community. But now, nearly all institutional gatekeepers have succumbed to fascism. So what shall be the source of dignity henceforth? For those who might want to suggest “self”, I worry that this is a dangerous road to narcissism. For those who might want to suggest “family”, I would remind you that lots of families went fascist over the last three years too. And for those who might recommend “faith”, I would point out that many religious institutions went fascist as well.
How do we have dignity when our society has been so completely degraded by the pharmaceutical industry and its willing collaborators?
: a psychopath masquerading as a philanthropist. It appears that it was coined by Margaret Anna Alice in her Substack article, “Anatomy of a Philanthropath: Dreams of Democide & Dictatorship.”
Used in a sentence: While the best available scientific evidence shows that the DTP vaccine kills far more children than it saves, the philanthropath, Bill Gates, has spent millions of dollars to increase DTP vaccination rates in African countries.
A person who has renounced a religion or faith.
(by extension) One who has renounced a political party, a cause, etc.
Discussion: I am completely fascinated by this word. It started being used in the 14th century to refer to those who failed to follow religious orthodoxy. Labelling something as apostasy, heresy, or witchcraft was how the Papal State controlled the narrative, much like how the Fascist Pharma State today controls the narrative by labelling certain ideas misinformation, disinformation, or malinformation.
Then when I went to look up the etymology of the word apostate, I discovered an interesting historical wrinkle. From wiktionary:
From Late Latin apostata, from Ancient Greek ἀποστάτης (apostátēs, “rebel”), from ἀφίστημι (aphístēmi, “to withdraw, revolt”), from ἀπό (apó, “from”) + ἵστημι (hístēmi, “to stand”).
Several dictionaries (see: here, here, and here) suggest that in the ancient Greek context these terms sometimes referred to runaway slaves. With this broader historical definition, apostate goes from being one of the worst things that one can be called (someone rejecting the true faith) to being a badge of honor (a naturally free person rejecting the shackles of human-imposed slavery). I’m also struck by the fact that apostate shares the same root, apó, with the word “apostle”.
I bring all of this up because people in the movement for medical freedom are considered apostates by mainstream society. Vaccines are a secular religion and so anyone who questions their safety and efficacy has thus renounced the religious faith of the bougiecrats. The way that they label this apostasy is by calling it misinformation or calling us anti-vaxxers. As we all know, the punishments for this apostasy are severe.
But now I’m drawn to the power of the word apostasy as well — rebellion, revolt, standing apart from a society that is corrupt, violent, and dying. I feel like perhaps we should embrace this rebellious energy that goes back thousands of years — ‘yes, I have renounced the junk science Molochian religion that is destroying America and the entire developed world.’ Furthermore, it seems to me that only by standing apart from mainstream society can we become apostles for transcendent truths. In a society gone mad, the apostates are doing something right.
“Conspiracy is an interesting word. It’s not what people believe. It literally means breathing together. It doesn’t necessarily mean plotting, planning, or even talking. It means inhabiting a shared airspace, participating within it, and synchronizing with what others are doing.”
Blessings to the warriors. 🙌
Prayers for everyone fighting to stop the iatrogenocide. 🙏
Huzzah for everyone building the better world our hearts know is possible. ✊
