Man. There is something deeply evil about the mere concept of big pharma. Could you imagine going back to the dawn of modern medicine and telling the pioneers there that the government and big pharma would be ruling the population, experimenting on them, and putting them in a position to constantly need it? Then fleecing the public and having them become addicted to it? That we would simply resort to treating the symptoms because the solving the actual issue would make for bad business?
I do feel a little more justifiably paranoid after your well researched posts but I would rather be informed than blind to the tyranny.
