The Great Swine Flu Game ??

This is twisted. A swine flu video game!
What a way to influence children, to scare and manipulate them!
Of course, partially funded by Glaxo-Smith Kline.
How very self-serving of them.
Despicable!

Pandemic game kills time

The game, which was designed by Dutch researchers at the Erasmus Medical Centre and created by Ranj Serious Games, goes by the title The Great Flu and asks players to tackle a growing pandemic, hopefully finishing it with something other than flamethrowers. It is nice looking and strangely addictive - or do we mean infective? And was partially funded by drug heavyweight GlaxoSmithKline.


In another article it is reported that to fight the flu, you do things like "set up surveillance systems" "stockpile anti-virals" and the game has a running tally of deaths, with admonishments to stay on budget all the while.

It appears the military isn't alone in it's use of video games to influence the young and the gullible.



An update on Tamiflu use/abuse:

Experts warned dispersal of Tamiflu would do more harm than good
And governments of the world rejected these warnings

  1. It is an insidious form of advertising, or propaganda, since that is all advertising really is...

  2. Hi Penny;

    What is the risk of being vaccinated vs the risk of not being vaccinated?

  3. Hey Jim, in the case of the 1976 swine flu scare, where there was one death, there in fact was only one case, from swine flu, then millions were innoculated and thousands were injured, some even died.

    The greater risk taken was in taking the injection.

    Again experts are warning about that very same risk, with Guillian Barre syndrome.
    Given the flu is so mild????

  4. I was going to also say, we are seeing this with the use of Tamiflu, where experts warned it's use was going to do more harm then good.
    The expert advice was ignored.

    And it is doing more harm then good, side effects, near death,and aiding in the creation of tamiflu resisitant strains.

    This makes on think of the overuse of anti-biotics, where we have now caused superstrains to develop.
