A world-renowned medical journal is calling for governments to make “interventions” to stop so-called “misinformation” about Covid mRNA injections.
The British Medical Journal (BMJ) argues that “misinformation on social media” is driving “vaccine hesitancy” among members of the general public.
According to the BMJ, governments around the world should deploy “behavioral interventions” to stop “vaccine hesitancy.”
The calls were made in a BMJ article by the journal’s owners, the British Medical Association.
The hesitancy here is specifically linked with social media-driven “misinformation.”
The recommendations don’t differ greatly from what those Big Tech social subsidiaries have been including for years in their policies.
These “guidelines” from the BJM sound eerily similar to past demands for social media censorship of wrongthink.
In the article, the BMJ calls for boosting the visibility of “reliable health information” from establishment-approved sources.
The journal bosses also demand more “pro-action” on these platforms “in dealing with the proliferation of misinformation.”
First, the authors of the piece seek to define how social media impacts mass vaccination campaigns.
However, according to the BMJ, the free flow of information online amounts to misinformation only.
Paying lip service to genuine safety concerns playing a role in low uptake, the BMJ instantly switches back to playing up the danger of hesitancy.
The article continues by noting there’s been a “return of measles” as of late.
It then explains that the World Health Organization (WHO) has been warning that “misinformation” and “anti-vaxxers” are an increasing threat.
According to the globalist WHO, vaccine hesitancy is “among the greatest threats to global health.”
While the article positions the concern about vaccination in general – including decades-long used and tested ones – the highly controversial Covid mRNA injection is at the center of the argument.
It is mentioned as that point where this general “hesitancy” gained momentum, with social media – rather than the sketchy nature of these particular vaccines – to blame.
Now for the “solutions,” specifically those based on “behavioral interventions” methods, or let’s say, “reprogramming.”
Standard behavioral approaches, according to the BMJ, are to encourage vaccination by “(including) mandatory vaccination and regulation for healthcare professionals, incentives, public health communication campaigns, and engaging trusted leaders.”
Don’t feel bad if the term “orchestrated campaign” occurs to you as you read the BMJ mentioning “pre-bunking” information as one way to deal with this problem of its own making.
“Pre-bunking” enthusiasts are now cropping up all over the place.
And there are more ways to inoculate people than just against viruses – there’s also manipulative “inoculation” against broad-minded consideration of all available information.
The BMJ says:
“Other intervention types include warning (‘inoculating’) people about manipulation tactics using non-harmful exposure as a tool to identify misinformation, and using accuracy prompts to trigger people to consider the truthfulness of material they are about to share on social media platforms, without stopping them from posting.”
