My Blog Takes a Turn

Posted on January 13, 2008. Filed under: My Blog Takes a Turn | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Some of my recent reading has included Cultural Dwarfs and Junk Journalism, by Martin Walker, his fourth book charting the development of the corporate science lobby that has grown rapidly since New Labour came to power in Britain in 1997. One of the most ardent mouthpieces of the lobby is Dr Ben Goldacre who has authored a “Bad Science” column in the Guardian newspaper since 2003. Walker’s book clarified for me that Ben Goldacre and his fellow “badscience” bloggers have an altogether different agenda than just rigidly defending their view of science.  They are part of a British corporate pro-industrial science lobby and therefore it is their JOB to defame anything alternative, and hence, competitive, of which homeopathy is only one of many disciplines. These bloggers started out in the 80’s as a few amateur “quack busters”, and have now joined the pro-industrial science and technology lobby, working together to limit access to anything but what corporate medicine deems valid (read “profitable”).  Nutrition, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and homeopathy have all been subject to venomous attacks by Goldacre and his associates.

Mr. Walker states:

“Don’t expect anything near rationality from these skeptics or any of their aligned organizations. If they are not actually funded by the pharmaceutical and processed food industry or other corporate concerns themselves, they are aligned with groups which are. Their views are narrow and ideological, they have nothing to do with the normal, historically accepted investigation of knowledge. And if it enters your head to wonder whether these people are sincere, forget it. In the main, they are professional agents for corporate medicine and health.”

This explains why when the pro-homeopathic bloggers, especially Laughing My Socks Off, present study after study PROVING the scientific validity of homeopathy, these lobbyists continue to refute the evidence. Because of this realization, I have decided to change the direction of this blog. From now on I will discuss the benefits of homeopathy and the success stories of people who have used it. To that end, I invite you to share your personal homeopathic successes, either as layman or professional.

Welcome back!

Hi!
I’m all for hearing positive stories arising
from peoples experiences with homeopathy.
But does this help prove that
homeopathy works? I say lets have some decent case
studies too.

sorry for formatting in this post, IE hates CSS and this template hasn’t been bug tested obviously 🙂

When dealing with people who have no interest in listening, better to address yourself to those who still have ears.

Good Science, sounds like a good plan!

I am very pleased that you will put your energies into more positive homeopathic stories. Mine is one and my stories are on my site and blog.
