“We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice…”

"Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality” is a quotation that has been credited to medical hypnosis expert Michael Ellner.

“We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy” has been made into a poster and is credited to American journalist Chris Hedges, who made this speech by at least 2010.

“The Emperor’s New and Improved Clothes” by Rev. Dr. Michael Ellner of HEAL New York was cited in print in 1997 and ends:

“’’Infectious AIDS’ is another decoy in a long line of decoys aimed at keeping us from noticing that doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, government officials destroy freedom, religious leaders destroy spirituality, the media destroys information and that we are unknowingly participating in our own self-destruction as culturally conditioned consumers unable or unwilling to see what is happening right in front of us.”

The addition of “banks destroy the economy” became popular on various websites after the financial crisis of 2008.

THE EMPEROR’S NEW and IMPROVED CLOTHES
by Rev. Dr. Michael Ellner of HEAL New York
If one compares the myth about the Emperor’s new clothes to the U. S. government’s myth about a new and deadly HI-Virus, the psyco-social function of “infectious AIDS” and how the public is unconsciously participating in a murderous fraud becomes clear.

In the Emperor’s story only the wisest and most intelligent could see the clothes, and in the AIDStory, the best “science” billions of dollars can buy tells us HIV does it.  The average person is not aware that health activists, health professionals, journalists and noted scientists have de-bunked infectious AIDS going back to 1984.  They have no idea that there has been a massive media white out on this controversy.  How could they?  Everywhere they turn the average person is bombarded with propaganda that tells them that the “great and the wise” all agree that HIV does it.  The rare mention of dissenters is colored with ridicule.
(...)
Remember both the Emperor, his counselors and the common people were too embarrassed to question anything only the wisest and most intelligent could see.  In the Emperor’s story the clothing doesn’t exist, and in the AIDStory infectious AIDS doesn’t exist.  Amazing.  “Infectious AIDS” is another decoy in a long line of decoys aimed at keeping us from noticing that doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, government officials destroy freedom, religious leaders destroy spirituality, the media destroys information and that we are unknowingly participating in our own self-destruction as culturally conditioned consumers unable or unwilling to see what is happening right in front of us.
