Today, a new level of totalitarianism was reached when Dr. Robert Malone was banned from reading the New England Journal of Medicine.
We are accustomed to censorship by YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook; we are accustomed to professionals getting fired for not submitting to vaccination, but this feels different.
Dr. Robert Malone discovered in-vitro and in-vivo RNA transfection and invented mRNA platform technology while he was at the Salk Institute in 1988. He is thus, the father of the modern mRNA vaccine technology, and he has spoken out against its recent misuse in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, there has been retaliation, more than one would expect in a free society. Here is a level of retribution one would typically find in Russia or China, not in the United States of America. This country used to be the model for free speech.
Just yesterday, I noticed this video of a physician being escorted off the grounds of UCLA for failing to submit to a vaccine injection. He was treated like a common criminal, with surly security guards forcing him off the premises. Here is a video account of Dr. Christopher Rake being fired for vaccine insubordination.
Now it seems that a recent email from The New England Journal of Medicine has banned Dr. Robert Malone.
On October 7, 2021, Dr. Malone reported the following:
"For your information, I have now been banned from reading the New England Journal of Medicine. They have blocked my IP address. I wonder how many others have been blocked?"
I wonder, was Professor Albert Einstein ever locked out of his office at Princeton? I know that many did not understand the complex equations he wrote, even the sharpest physicists of his day. It was only AFTER real-world experiments such as the total eclipse of the sun in 1919. This eclipse proved his calculation from his Relativity Theory that gravity could bend sunlight. Moreover, it made him a worldwide celebrity.
However, Dr. Malone's predictions about mRNA vaccine technology have not yet come to pass. When they do, perhaps he too will be accorded the same respect as Einstein. But does the world truly have to await the harsh results?
Can't we be a little bit smarter this time?
Banning scientists from their place of work or scholarly journals is not ethical, nor is it wise. We need as many Dr. Robert Malones and Dr. Christopher Rakes as we can enlist to save humanity. But we can NEVER afford to silence scholarly innovation and new ideas. When we do, it is only at our greatest peril.
