New Age Right and vaccination

This anti-vaccination article by Tat Loo - To trust or not to trust - the basic question is typical of what I term the New Age Right and it is remarkable how similar its views are to elements of the anti-globalist Left.

The NAR has a slightly paranoid aspect - a high suspicion of public health initiatives such as vaccination and water fluoridation. There is also the dislike of big business and of course a complete disdain for science. With their belief that there is such an inherently good thing as "natural", as opposed to science and technology, they are indistinguishable from the Green Party.

The idea that vaccination is not "natural" and hence suspect is absurd.
