English: This image is of economist Walter Blo...

I helped to arrange two interviews for Walter Block on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith, on June 4, 2012, at 6 PM at gcnlive.com and midnight Eastern at radioliberty.com, and on many of his 70+ weekly radio affiliates.

Dr. Block will be talking about his new book, Ron Paul for President in 2012: Yes to Ron Paul and Liberty.

In a twist of irony, on August 20, 2011, I wrote the article, Stefan Molyneux does hate the state and Walter Block of the Mises Institute, doesn’t, wherein I took Dr. Block to task for his criticism of Stefan Molyneux.

As the latest example of supranational, unaccountable global governance, The World Health Organization wants to tax your internet usage to fund vaccines.

I have my own personal experience with the WHO that has informed my view of them since the late 90s.

Then, during a doctor’s visit for an ear infection, my doctor invoked the WHO, saying they recommended against the use of antibiotics for my condition, so as to prevent bacterial resistance.

That is a very legitimate concern. However, it had already been a few days with no positive change to my near-deaf infected ear. After several days, permanent damage can result without treatment. The WHO wouldn’t have to live with hearing loss — I would.

I wouldn’t have been irked if my doctor invoked Health Canada or the CDC, which are answerable to the people through their representatives. Even before I came to came to know about the plans of United Nations organizations like UNESCO, spearheaded by eugenecist Julian Huxley, I saw it as an affront to the health freedom of myself and my doctor.

Since then, I’ve never heard another mention of WHO “recommendations” in any subsequent visit, and if I ever do, I’ll be sure to inform my doctor of the writings of the first┬áDirector-General of UNESCO, Julian Huxley. In 1946, while Director-General of UNESCO, he wrote in “UNESCO: Its Purposes and Philosophy“:

It can both on its own account and in close relation with other U.N. agencies such as the F.A.O. and the World Health Organization, promote the international application of science to human welfare.

What did Huxley have in mind for the international application of science to “human welfare”? In his 1947 book, “Man in the Modern World,” Huxley, while still Director-General, wrote:

The lowest strata are reproducing too fast. Therefore… they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilisation.
