  1. This article is from the National Vaccine Center. It lists a whole major shitload of diseases that can be caused by a measles vaccine.

    DISCLAIMER  I had nothing to do with making this list. I am completely innocent.

    Could we go back to the original disease that this vaccine is trying to prevent?

    Yup. It seems so. There are several items in the list that sound like measles.But what I meant was instead of those other diseases.

    Helluva deal.

    My diagnosis of the problem is government control of the doctoring business. Everything government takes over turns into shit. Under freedom, doctors would be in the business of putting themselves out of business, meaning helping people to get well and to stay well. Under government control, doctors are not in the business of putting themselves out of business.

    It's a helluva deal for both the patient and the medical profession but in different ways.

     


  2. Some time ago on Objectivism Online the idea was put forth that Windows is capitalist and Linux is socialist. And Windows is so much better than Linux because capitalism is so much better than socialism.

    Seems to me a better comparison would be Unix vs Linux. In a scientific experiment you are supposed to keep all variables the same except the one variable you are testing. Unix and Linux are very nearly the same except one is closed source and one is open source.

    Another point is if we think of Windows vs Linux as a race, if it's to be a fair race the 2 runners should start at the same time. MSDOS  started in 1981; Linux started in 1991; so Windows got a head start of about 10 years. Windows 3.1, released in 1992, was a graphical wrapper for MSDOS; then Windows 95 was a thing on its own, not dependent on MSDOS. Linux started with command line, nongraphical, then sometime in the 1990s went graphical and now you hardly ever see a command line but you have it if you want it.Seems to me Windows had a head start of about 10 years but in the foot race Linux ran faster and perhaps now is passing Windows in some ways.

    Then to my surprise I saw this video.

     

    If Windows represents capitalism and Linux represents socialism, then what is happening here?

  4. WARNING! If you are in possession of a certain video showing what happened in Christchurch, New Zealand, you could be arrested and put in prison. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-17-violent-videos-on-the-net-possessing-the-nz-mosque-shooting-video.html

    If you want to find that video and find out what the government is hiding that they need to put people in prison for finding out and maybe post it on OL, your best chance is probably Brighteon because youtube tends to censor stuff. 

    BTW, naturalnews.com seems to be blocked by chromium but not by firefox.

     


  5. Sometimes the universe is 'benevolent', sometimes 'malevolent', sometimes something between, using those words metaphorically, not literally. For example if you are a zebra being eaten alive by a pack of lions, you might have difficulty at that moment believing the universe is benevolent. Bad things can happen to humans too -- earthquakes, tornadoes, giant ocean waves, hereditary disease or disability. You can avoid most of these things by rational and intelligent thinking but I suspect that even the greatest Objectivist super heroes (with cape and the sign of the dollar on their chest) are not always in complete control of reality. For example even the greatest Objectivist super hero would get old and die.
