Medical doctor of 50 years: Current measles hysteria not based on science but “scientism,” a quasi-religious faith in vaccines by Erin Elizabeth for Health Nut News

Dr. Richard Moskowitz has been a licensed physician since 1967. He received his B.A. from Harvard in 1959, Phi Beta Kappa, Cum Laude in General Studies (Biochemical Sciences).
He received his M.D. from New York University in 1963. After finishing a Graduate Fellowship in Philosophy at the University of Colorado, he completed his internship at St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver.
In 2015 when the first measles hysteria broke out in the corporate media, Dr. Moskowitz was gracious enough to allow us to republish his article, The Case Against Immunizations, which remains one of the most brilliant pieces of writing on the topic we have ever published, drawing upon his knowledge of the subject, as well as decades of clinical medical practice.
Dr. Moskowitz has just written another article on the subject of “measles outbreaks” in 2019, and the renewed call for mandatory vaccinations.
He exposes the fallacy that the “science is settled” when it comes to measles and vaccines:
“Contrary to what we’re being told, the science is far from being settled when it comes to vaccine effectiveness.
These assumptions are not science, but merely scientism, a reverent, quasi-religious faith characterized by dogmatism in the name of science, which stifles the critical thinking, questioning, and doubting of allegedly settled truths that real science requires, and helps explain why the news media refrain from reporting deaths or injuries from vaccines.”
Those Measles Outbreaks: Thoughts out of Season

Before the current measles hysteria gets even further out of hand, a little common sense could help us think more carefully before rushing to take action that won’t work and will actually do harm.
Refusing unwanted medical treatment is a basic human right that all civilized nations have sworn to uphold, with the sole possible exception of a dire and imminent threat to the public health, which a few localized measles outbreaks, numbering no more than a few dozens or hundreds of cases, decidedly are not.
