The New Film, “Contagion,” Infects the Public with FEAR


It is hard to say if fear is stronger motivating force on behavior than love, but certain movies tend to play into our fears in order to sell more tickets and to make more money. 

And sadly, the new movie "Contagion" may be the most powerful fear-mongering movie of the year.  It is the fictional story about an epidemic that spreads worldwide and that is a unique and never previously known mixture of a pig virus and a bat virus with a capability to infect humans. This new virus is shown to spread rapidly and to kill everyone it infects.

With an impressive list of A-list movie celebrities (Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Kate Winslet) and directed by the famed Steven Sodenbergh, this high-paced drama provides a compelling story that is particularly frightening because it seems so plausible, even though no such epidemic or near-epidemic of this type has ever occurred.

The serious problem with this movie is that it glorifies the U.S. Center for Disease Control (the CDC), and it demonizes a blogger (Jude Law) who rightly questions the integrity of the CDC, provides evidence that the World Health Organization (WHO) has proven links to Big Pharma, and raises big questions about the greediness of Big Pharma.

Much to my real surprise, the character who plays a CDC’s Deputy Director (Laurence Fishburne) actually says during a television interview that the CDC is investigating “homeopathic and other alternatives” in the treatment of this epidemic (I wish that there was evidence of this happening in real life).  However, he and the CDC focus their entire efforts on creating a new vaccine, while ignoring the real life possibility that this new virus may mutate, requiring new and ever-changing additional vaccines. 

The film reports initially that thousands of people are dying from this new virus, then hundreds of thousands, and then millions of people.  Rampant looting occurs, entire states are quarantined, and murder for food and medicines take place.  The film suggests that the very worst of human nature is brought out due to this epidemic. 

Although one can say that “this is only a movie” or “just a story”, the problem is that it creates an example of what people should expect from such a disaster.  As such, this movie’s fear-mongering creates an expectation that we all do NOT want to see happen ever. 

 More about this film…and homeopathy:

There is indeed a lot more that I can say about this movie, but I can no longer afford the significant amount of time and effort that it takes to write such articles.  As most of you know, I do not get paid to write 98% of the articles I get published.

On January 1, 2011, I informed a group of people who have previously shown financial support for my work that I needed (!) tangible support for future writing.  I was very pleased that several people stepped forward with donations to the Foundation for Homeopathic Education and Research, a non-profit organization that supports my educational efforts for homeopathy.  With this support, I was able to write important articles that went viral, including an article about the Nobel Prize-winning virologist, Luc Montagnier, and his newest research testing homeopathic doses and principles.  It also enabled me to write an article, “The King’s Homeopath,” which discussed the movie, “The King’s Speech,” and the special relationship that King George VI had with his homeopathic doctor.

Financial support from the homeopathic community also enabled me to write “Homeopathy for Radiation Poisoning,” another article that went viral.  This article was well-timed because it was published shortly after the Fukishima disaster.  Further, I wrote another very popular and widely read article about homeopathy and ADD/ADHD.  

Most recently, financial support from the homeopathic community enabled me towrote a two-part article called “The Dis-information Campaign Against Homeopathy.”

I now NEED your support for future writing, including future writing about real and possible epidemics as depicted in the new film, “Contagion.”  Because my writings seem widely appreciated and because these articles are reaching hundreds of thousands and perhaps millions of readers, there is a REAL need to continue using this microphone to advocate for homeopathy and other natural healing methods.

I realize that people want to read my thoughts on various subjects for free…and I would too love to offer them, but I cannot afford to do so anymore.  If you or anyone you know wants to support my efforts, please consider sending a tax deductible donation to The Foundation for Homeopathic Education and Research (a non-profit organization that supports my educational efforts for homeopathic medicine—you can send PayPal donations to:  fher@igc.org)…OR if a tax deduction isn’t important to you, you are welcome to send your contributions to Homeopathic Educational Services.  If money is tight (and yes, I am sympathetic), please simply consider buying whatever homeopathic medicines or books or software you need from my website.

Having appreciation is a good thing...but SHOWING it in some tangible ways is now imperative.  In return, I will show my appreciation by writing further important articles on homeopathy....
