Special Rapporteur on Torture’s Report to UN General Assembly Indicts Human Self-Interest | Activist Post

Activist Post – October 26, 2020 | By Janet Phelan

In his report to the General Assembly of the UN on October 15, Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer delivered an incisive and damning indictment of the human propensity for self-deception and denial, citing these attributes as contributing to the prevalence of torture. He discussed how these innate propensities paved the way for denial that torture was taking place and for compartmentalization of one’s own participation in hurting other people. While applauding the normative structure of society and law in terms of “official” prohibitions against torture, Melzer unequivocally stated that these structures were not sufficient in stopping torture, given the human tendency towards self-interest and self-protection, and discussed how this tendency rears up in fear-based societies.

(NaturalHealth365) According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders affect 40 million American adults every year.  And, no doubt, the additional stress-producing impact of the coronavirus on mental health has probably yet to be fully realized.  So, while Western medicine attempts to “treat” anxiety disorders with (toxic) prescription medications such as benzodiazepines … these potentially addictive drugs can feature toxic side effects – leading many to turn to anxiety fighting herbs and supplements for relief.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, public health experts began telling us to follow a number of disease mitigation strategies that sounded reasonably scientific, but actually had little or no support in the scientific literature.
