We are probably both on the same side of this argument. But with questioning comes a responsibility to learn. Personally I could never have questioned the issues surrounding Thalidomide because I just didnt / don't know remotely enough to begin to in relation to the causal factors involved Likewise it seems to me that people that are questioning child vaccines now are doing a lot of harm by discouraging them - but I guess there is a chance that they could be proved right in the long run. But for now, my money is on the experts. If you back the experts all the time versus backing against them all the time, you will be a lot more right then wrong.
But of course you should question stuff, but there is a climate currently to write off all expert advice as rubbish because they are some 'elite' experts. That is a path that history has shown goes very wrong.
Mind you, that's all a long way from flying a flag
