Trump Would be Best, But Scott Adams Could Also Do the Job…
If we want to prevent a world-wide collapse of the human species from vaccine damage we need to figure out some better messaging.
Please do not take this as criticism of what others have done in the past. If government, industry and the public health authorities had responded in a reasonable manner, none of what I am about to say would be necessary.
We need a master persuader who can blow a hole in the commonly accepted belief that vaccines are the only thing holding back a tidal wave of infectious diseases which would decimate humanity.
About two years ago I was introduced to the work of Scott Adams. Adams is best known as the creator of the Dilbert comic strip, but is becoming known as one of the few people to forecast the rise of Donald Trump.
Adams does not credit the rise of Trump to fears about immigration, economic uncertainty, or the continuing threat of terrorism, but to the simple fact that Donald Trump is a master persuader. He has a new book out, Win Bigly, which is about the rules of persuasion that Trump used so well in the last election.
Probably the most important observation that Adams makes is that a master persuader understands that people do not make their decisions based on facts, but rather on emotion.
Once that “emotional” decision has been made, they find the facts to justify their position.
Think about how you came to your current “anti-vax” or “pro-vaccine safety” position. You probably took your previously healthy child to a well-baby visit, thought nothing about them getting their vaccines, then when you child suddenly changed, you had an emotional reaction. I know I did.
Adams makes the claim that 90% of our decisions are based on emotion. We find the facts to support what we feel later. In fact, it’s only in the 10% of the decisions we make in our life that have no emotion attached, that we actually review the facts and come to what would normally be thought of as an informed choice.
In his new book, Win Bigly, Adams recalls how Trump so masterfully won the immigration argument. He used EMOTION FIRST. He talked about Mexico “not sending their best people” and said that among them were “rapists and murderers” and “probably some good people.”
I only had to think of driving down to my local Home Depot store, and seeing the group of Hispanic men waiting outside for somebody to pick them up for a day of labor to cement that image in my mind. So many ideas spring to my mind when I see those men.
On the one hand I think of how horrible it is that they are being taken advantage of by the dominant society. Another thought is more personal. Would I ever pick up one of these men and let them work around my family? No way. This entire scenario is what would be called a cluster-**ck. How does our society allow this to happen?
Trump had emotionally moved me, then provided the answer.
A BIG BEAUTIFUL WALL AND MEXICO WILL PAY FOR IT. Has there ever been a simpler solution?
Now, I know what some of you are thinking…
Trump is a demagogue. How will he ever round up all those people and deport them? This is where the insight of Scott Adams is so valuable. A master persuader is interested in moving you to a certain position. Emotion is the fuel. The details will come later.
Now, will there be a wall across the entire southern border? No. But there will be more barriers. And there will be a new appreciation among those that are thinking about making the trip that maybe it’s not such a good idea. As I understand it, illegal border crossings are already down 70%.
This has made some people proclaim, TRUMP IS THE WALL.
Are we going to deport all the illegal aliens? No. Will we deport the violent and criminal ones? Probably. There have already been many more such deportations. Do you see how simply talking about an issue in the right way can so clearly move the discussion?
When I read Scott Adams, it makes me realize that the MESSAGING ABOUT VACCINES HAS BEEN ATROCIOUS.
We want to sound reasonable, and so we say we’re not against vaccines, just don’t force them on us.
THAT’S A LOSER ARGUMENT.
They don’t use a factual argument against us. They say WE WILL CAUSE KIDS TO DIE. We say, do the appropriate research.
We bring a knife to the fight, and they bring Godzilla. We lose that battle every time. We need to get smart and tough.
What we need to be saying is VACCINES POSE A THREAT TO THE EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN SPECIES. That is weapons-grade persuasion. I know there will be the doubters who say that if that’s our messaging, the networks will never let us speak.
Who cares? They don’t let us speak anyway.
But if we say something as bold as VACCINES POSE A THREAT TO THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN RACE, that’s a message which will stick in people’s minds. It doesn’t matter if the networks allow us to present that message. That message will go viral with every person who hears it.
It sets up a dynamic in a person’s mind. If I say to you, VACCINES POSE A THREAT TO THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN RACE, you have to respond to it. It moves people to action, just like Trump saying, MEXICO ISN’T SENDING THEIR BEST PEOPLE.
People need to be thinking about the claim that VACCINES POSE A THREAT TO THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF THE HUMAN RACE. We need to make people pick sides, then defend them.
You cannot go into any school in America today, talk to the nurse about the health of her students, and say we are in the golden age of children’s health. If you are so bold to make that investigation, you will clearly see we have entered the Dark Ages.
Trump is the Master Persuader.
Given his background, there is no logical reason he should be President of the United States. But people don’t work on logic. They work on emotion. Now, emotion needs to be supported by reason, but that comes later.
Trump defeated sixteen well-qualified candidates in the GOP primary, Hillary Clinton, one of the most well-qualified people to every run for the Presidency, the establishment of both parties, the media (except for InfoWars and a few other good places like The Bolen Report), and is well on his way to defeating ISIS, and the NFL.
IT IS TIME FOR TRUMP TO START TWEETING ABOUT VACCINES.
He has publicly stated that he has NEVER HAD A FLU SHOT, and he KNOWS THAT VACCINE DAMAGE IS REAL.
Along with the need to dismantle the pharmaceutical industry for promoting the opioid crisis, Trump needs to bring them down for the vaccine injury epidemic.
TRUMP Needs To Turn “BIG PHARMA” Into “little pharma.”
If Trump does not heed my call, I’m going to start bugging Scott Adams. He only lives about five miles away from me in the gated community of Blackhawk. Maybe I’ll start hanging out at the front gate. Scott, I drive a burgundy red Honda Accord, if you’re interested. I will be your apprentice. Or maybe you can be mine. I’m not really sure how this would all go. We’d have to talk.
Now, I want to persuade Scott Adams that getting to know me would be a good thing.
Let me begin by saying Scott, that you look like one of my long-time friends, who is an economics professor. (Do you see how I’m persuading Scott Adams?) I’m letting him know he looks like a friend I already have, and that friend is REALLY smart. I’m establishing a connection. That other smart person doesn’t run away from me. Scott doesn’t need to worry about me. Not really. You see, that’s “strategic ambiguity.” Scott will see what he wants to see.
Here’s some more Master Persuader Mojo for Scott Adams.
Hey Scott, you live in Blackhawk Country Club, but I grew up in Roundhill Country Club. Scott will know that Roundhill was “the” country club to belong to in our area before Blackhawk was built. Scott will think to himself that must mean I am “old-money,” which is always interesting to people like Scott who are “new money.” I am also always open to a game of golf, at either Blackhawk or Roundhill, although I must tell you that when I played on the junior golf team at Roundhill, we kicked Blackhawk’s butt.
I don’t know whether Scott Adams is a vaxxer or an anti-vaxxer, and I don’t really care.
I think he is an adrenaline junkie and will find the prospect of talking to the WORLD’s #1 ANTI-VAXXER and somebody who has been BANNED FROM AUSTRALIA, unbearable to resist.
Seriously, after beating all of the media and political pundits about Trump’s election and success, what mountain is there left to climb?
I recently heard Adams say there is no such thing as a person who is “anti-science.” He says that there are people who question whether the science was done correctly, whether it is biased or corrupted by the people who funded the study. But there is no serious person who is “anti-science.” I like people who analyze things in that way.
After successfully predicting the Presidential election, Adams is now focused on changing the discussion about climate change. He doesn’t like to let the grass grow under his feet.
I think Adams would be open to hearing about the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and the revelations of CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson. Maybe I’d even give him a copy of the movie, VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe, or my book, INOCULATED: How Science Lost its Soul in Autism, so we could have an informed discussion.
I offer Scott Adams the option of meeting me any Saturday night at the Starbucks in Blackhawk Plaza or the Blackhawk Grill for dinner. I’m doing this for you, Scott. The rest of your life is likely to be boring if you don’t take up my offer.
Just think of how much fun you will have taking on a fifty billion dollar a year industry which has no legal liability and is threatening the very survival of the human race.
I GET THE FEELING ADAMS IS AN ADRENALINE JUNKIE AND WILL FIND MY OFFER TO BE IRRESISTIBLE.
We can start our very own JUSTICE LEAGUE. They said the Age of Heroes would never come again. They were wrong. I’ll even let you be Superman.
