On October 16th, 2009 the Council on Foreign Relations, a powerful Globalist think tank met in New York to discuss policy advisement measures on the Government’s H1N1 program. The minutes of the symposium reveal various techniques employed behind the scenes to influence the ‘herd’; including using artificial scarcity to increase demand, blatant fear mongering & counter measures to quell the “anti-vaccine movement”. The program was clearly in disarray.
“I think what would work better would be to say that there was a shortage and people tend to buy more of something that’s in demand (laughter). We saw that— there was one season where, really, people lined up all night to get a flu shot (more laughter).” Lone Simonsen, Research Director at the Dep’t of Global Health, George Washington University.
“I think we’re all aware the anti vaccine movement is having a field-day on the internet and on media outlets like Fox News (chuckle heard) causing reductions in vaccine uptake and it appears to be a pretty unholy alliance of the ultra right & ultra left working together in a sort of Hitler-Stalin pact (hysterical laughter). I’m not sure we’re countering these people very well.
And you have to take these people on in a different style than scientists are used to. We have to develop better sound bytes. You have to develop better discussion. You can’t really debate these people but you have to develop better counter methods.”
