Geoff Dawe, Uki

The pegging of some Centrelink recipients to less money if they do not immunise their children is not only discriminatory but an indicator that the technocracy knows very little about how to cure disease.

The society knows soil, water and air are deteriorated and humans are markedly stressed with overwork and the nuclear family separation, yet rather than attempt to cure these upstream causes to ill-health, humans react primitively with downstream invasionary techniques to the body, that the father of medicine, Hippocrates warned against centuries ago.

There is no indication humans have advanced in ethics from the time of Hippocrates, yet the ability to know of ethics is one of the indicators of humanness. Humans turn their backs on humanness and responsible ethics when they engage in invasive procedures as a first line of defence against disease, while neglecting the environment or terrain that causes normally in-balance microorganisms to become pathogenic in human bodies.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. I would urge people who still maintain antediluvian notions about vaccination to go to SBS1 and download a recent doco about the overwhelming advantages of immunisation. It’s called ‘Jabbed’ and explains the origins and negative effects of the superstitions surrounding immunisation.

  2. I have read many pieces by Geoff Dawe mainly concering the redefiniion of weeds as “native plants”. This excursion in to medical issues show the same level ignorance and arrogance.

    Geoff invariably starts with his prejudices and attempts to redefine reality to fit.

    Perhaps Geoff should take a break from his rampant hypocrisy abd take a close look at what passes for his own ethics.

  3. Great letter. Thank you. How disgusting that people who don’t wish to poison their children with vaccines, are being blackmailed by the government–who are controlled by the drug companies. Vaccination is a trillion dollar industry for the drug companies.

  4. I sincerely believe that it is criminal not to immunize your children and put the rest of the population at risk, especially children at school. It is time that the government bans all not immunized children from all schools and stops paying any sort of benefits to parents that refuse to immunize their children.Unless this happens we will end up with epidemics of hooping cough, polio and measles just because of some misguided conspiracy theorists think that they know more then modern science

  5. Excellent letter, Geoff. If immunisation is so effective, why are the parents of immunised children afraid of non-vaccinated children?

    In a democracy it is unethical to mandate poisons being pumped into young and often undeveloped immune systems. To believe Big Pharma’s version of ‘safety’ is not to question authority. How can you know the truth if you don’t question and do research?

    The fact is children die from vaccines.

    If I was a parent raising my child and feeding it the purest possible foods I would not want to be forced to poison it with highly toxic vaccines! It should be our choice, not the government’s.
