Medical Freedom Quote by Dr. Benjamin Rush


"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship....To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science.  All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic....The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."  

The quote above is often attributed to one of the Founding Fathers of the Republic, Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signatory of the Declaration of Independence.  But is this exactly what he wrote?

These words do encapsulate Dr. Rush's viewpoint on medical freedom.  However, no one has actually found this exact quote in any of his many writings.

It appears that this paraphrase has evolved over time long after Dr. Rush's death in 1813. 

The quote below was taken from Dr. Rush's introductory remarks to a course lecture at the University of Pennsylvania on November 3, 1801.  He was describing 24 “causes which have retarded the progress of our science” and this was one of the causes that he listed.

However, Dr. Benjamin Rush did state:

#22 -- “Conferring exclusive privileges upon bodies of physicians, and forbidding men of equal talents and knowledge, under severe penalties from practicing medicine within certain districts of cities and countries. 

"Such institutions, however sanctioned by ancient charters and names, are the Bastilles of our science.”

The Bastille fortress in France epitomized the tyrannical imprisonment of people who exercised politically incorrect free speech (aka, censorship).  Originally, if the king did not like something a person said he would imprison the person without a trial or without what we would term "due process".  Voltaire spent nearly a year behind bars at the Bastille for his writings.

In our world today would not "Bastilles of our science" be interpreted as "fake science"?  Or to paraphrase virologist Dr. Judy Mikovits, "Propaganda maskerading as science".  The new "king" is now the unholy marriage between government and corporations. 

James Madison wrote in the Federalist Papers that when legislative, judicial and executive powers are accumulated in the "same hands" or in one person--such as a king--it is the very definition of tyranny. 

These "same hands"--Big Medical, Big Media, Big Tech and Big Government, in collusion--are suppressing anything other than drugs and experimental vaccines as a solution to good health.  Instead of talking about Vitamin D, healthy diet and other natural preventive measures, Big Media continues to write, speak and read teleprompter fiction that is cleverly crafted as "news". 

These "same hands" have forced unconstitutional, unscientific, unproven mask wearing, lockdowns, social distancing, testing, business closures, etc, in classic Orwellian style. 

These "same hands" have been ramping up fear with bogus "case" numbers of an alleged, yet-to-be-established, Sar-CoV-2 virus.  They use testing methods that were never designed to diagnose a disease and these methods do not even detect specific viruses.

Big Tech and Big Media corporations are marching in lockstep with Big Government and Big Medical.  By censoring and banning any true information that exposes their BIG LIES, they have become the new "Bastilles of our science". 


We see the "same hands" of very wealthy people all pushing the same narrative that belies genuine, verifiable science.  On the contrary, it benefits their own wealth.  And it benefits their own authoritarian agendas of depopulation, eugenics ("scientific" racism), and their own insane desire for planetary govern-mental control. 

Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates are two examples of such individuals and they uniformly preach that everyone on the planet needs to be vaccinated with their experimental vaccines.  Yet neither one is a medical expert.  Who benefits?  And why are they so eager to push this on everyone?  Why are Big Tech, Big Media and Big Government working so hard together to suppress the speech and writings of anyone who does not parrot the "same hands" authoritarian narrative? 

In our modern world we see history repeating itself again with the oppression by "govern-mental" agencies like the FDA, CDC or medical "associations" like the American Medical Association (AMA).  State legislatures, for example, have created "licenses" for doctors such that if they stray away from the accepted Big Pharma treatments, they can lose their licenses to "practice medicine". 

The revolving door between Big Pharma corporations and Big Government insures that natural remedies are suppressed.  The merging of corporations with government is technically called "fascism".

It should also be noted that, ironically, Dr. Rush did practice and teach blood-letting and using substantial doses of mercury on patients.  We can be thankful that those methods have since been abandoned, but are experimental vaccines that can permanently damage our DNA any better?  What is the real agenda of these "same hands"? 

Before our eyes we see the "same hands" of the "Great Reset" agenda that is being forced upon us bit by bit. 

Those who are now awake and aware know that total control is the planetary goal of the "same hands" that James Madison warned about.  Fortunately, increasing numbers of people are becoming aware of the BIG LIE of this viral, mind-controlled matrix that the sociopathic globalists are gaslighting* us with. 

The solution is to do all we can to restore the essential ingredients of freedom embodied in the founding documents.  Accountability and the separation of powers are absolute necessities.

*[Gaslighting:  A form of psychological manipulation in which a person or group deceptively sows seeds of doubt in someone or group of people through lies, making them question their own memory, perception, sanity or judgment.  Victims may suffer cognitive dissonance, low self-esteem and may become dependent upon the perpetrator for information and direction.  The term comes from the 1938 play and 1944 film Gaslight, in which a husband manipulates his wife into thinking she has a mental illness by dimming their gas-fueled lights and telling her she is hallucinating.]
