The CDC uses “anxiety and concern” in a shameful effort to manipulate the public through propaganda.
MUNCIE, IN — In 1893, an outbreak of smallpox caused public health officials to take drastic, draconian measures to prevent the spread of disease. The unpopular, violent quarantine that followed provides a memorable case study of the failings of forcible mandatory quarantine of a city.
NEWARK, NJ — A humanitarian worker says she is being detained against her will and “treated like a criminal” after selflessly working to provide health care to the people of Africa. The quarantined nurse has not tested positive for any disease and has exhibited no symptoms of illness.

On July 31st, 2014, President Obama expanded the list of communicable diseases for which the federal government is prepared to institute a forcible quarantine; suspending civil rights, restricting movement, and involuntarily detaining individuals — perhaps indefinitely.
CHAMPAIGN, IL — A sick man was ordered to wear a government tracking device and was subsequently thrown in jail for leaving his house. “Public health” is the excuse used to nullify individual rights for the sake of the herd.
TROY, IL — An 11-year-old entrepreneur recently learned a lesson about the economics of living in a police state when her home-based cupcake business was closed-down by local bureaucrats.
One aspect of the police state that I find particularly bothersome is forced drugging. We see this manifest in a variety of situations, usually involving children whose parents question their doctors or want to pursue alternative health care solutions. Being a complicated and emotional issue, many people end up siding with the state in pursuit of mandatory drugging. While this position is to be expected from the average statist, it is somewhat alarming when a well-known and respected publication like Reason Magazine comes out in favor of forced mass-drugging of the population, or as it was gently termed, “coercive vaccination.” These ideas, promoted under pseudo-libertarian shroud, cannot go unrebuked.
KENOSHA, WI — An animal shelter was swarmed with more than a dozen armed government agents after its employees began caring for a baby deer.

NEW YORK CITY, NY — There is a growing culture in NYC which involves strangers meeting up to share fine dining experiences in the private homes of strangers. These unique experiences bring people together for an evening of dinner and conversation. The guests pay the host for their trouble and then part ways. The trouble is, that’s illegal in New York City.
CHICKEN, AK — A group of gold miners working in the remote Alaskan wilderness were shocked when they saw eight members of a well-armed gang emerge from the forest pointing shotguns at them. The gang was wearing body armor and claimed to be the police. Why were these shotgun-toting men swarming their job site? A water cleanliness check.
