We are being watch (not that you all didn't know). This was a serendipitous conversation that Jeff Hayes, producer of the documentary "Bought", had at a restaurant with a lady he just happened to be sitting next to who was attending a conference on robotics.

 

Quote:

She said the guy from the Big Data track said, “years ago there was a rogue Dr who did some fraudulent research that said vaccines cause autism. In spite of the fact that the researcher had been discredited and the study has been retracted, this “false” data has woven into our culture and many people believe this “false” study and don’t get their kids vaccinated.”

She said he went on, “so we created a social media bot that searches conversation strings in all social media for these conversations and then posts the fact that they are false and links them to the “real” data showing that vaccines are safe and don’t cause autism. So this is just one example of how we can use Big Data and bots to affect social change for good.”

They will use it to search out medical personnel and researchers who dare to criticize vaccines.  They can then deny them funding, get them fired, etc.

 

That's why so many of those who speak out say that they had to wait until their careers could not be destroyed.

 

But in the meantime, more and more doctors and nurses are quietly delaying vaccines for their own children.
