Wack at the corporate system

The fix:  a whack at the perverse system.

We simply can’t expect our government to put a bandage on or to clean up the mess in our health care.  Every enacted change has been for the benefit of pharma (see Goldacre’s and Angell’s books for proof).  That corporations consistently use tobacco science in matters of health is a sign of a much deeper illness:  the global corporations as the shadow government have dismantled the New-Deal constraints, change the role of government, and eliminated union as a force for the people.  From this power shift came the dismantling of our liberal-education system and media (liberal in the sense of promoting reasoning skills and its factual basis).  World finance forces governments to promote their agenda for globalization.  NATO and the US military are tools to force globalization (open markets) upon resistant nations, currently focused on oil rich nations.    They have established world wide a debt-based currencies for which only through loans the currency expands, and thus there is an every growing amount of interest payments.  Right now it is after the military that does the globalizer’s bidding; the second largest item in the federal budget is payment on debt.  If the federal government issued its debt free currency, and was the loan system, there would be no debt payments.  Currently the financial sector consumes 44% of GDP.  Is this a service of value?  This sucking of resource entails that we have lost the right for everyone who works to earn a living wage.  And their media blames unemployment, government debt payments on our elected government rather than on the shadow government and its media.  Change won’t happen to make pharma serve people first until we create a debt free financial system and set up managed capitalism as we did with Keynesian economic (or more utopian alternatives).  Bad pharma, bad finance, bad utilities are all a product of a perverse system.  We must first fix the system, make it a system that serves the people, rather than serves corporations.  For this the people must take the political voice of corporations and their media.  This requires a populist government in which the people have a voice in the government and the media and educational system must have as their primary function preparation of the populace by giving them an accurate basis of information and the rational skills to properly use that information foundation--a design for such a government.   

One last though, a quote from Thomas Alva Edison:  If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good, makes the bill good, also. The difference between the bond and the bill is the bond lets money brokers collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%, whereas the currency pays nobody but those who contribute directly in some useful way.  It is absurd to say that our country can issue $30 million in bonds and not $30 million in currency. Both are promises to pay, but one promise fattens the usurers and the other helps the people.”   As Napolean said, “The hand that gives is above the hand that takes.”  Through the control of interest rates the banks can crash the economy at will (the club in their hand).  We thus need a state run financial system.

For much more on the broken system go to  We can’t hope to fix the system if we rely upon their media for facts and solutions.  We can’t make wise health choices by relying upon corporate medicine and corporate media.  Sure a few will make some sound choices, like avoiding sugars, but most won’t, and everyone under the care of a physician will suffer from the broken system. site is dedicated to increasing the percentage of those who will make some wise health choices.  The evidence is provided in detail with links for those with a life-science background; and there are non-technical summaries.   The harm caused by corporate takeover of healthcare is incredible.


The defenders of bad pharma do not address the evidence presented by the critics, because they can’t refute it.  Rather they science to prove their drugs are safe and effective, and the media to convey their message.  A perverse system produces perverse results.    Corporations are very good at marketing.  What causes corporations to aggressively market ethanol beverages and tobacco products; this too applies to pharma.  I call this “tobacco ethics”.   Books could be filled with examples of corporations vehemently defending harm for the sake of their profits, harm that kills.  Tobacco companies are one of thousands examples of corporations opposing regulations and much more.  They hide the information concerning the harm they are causing, than use the media to project a false image. They pollute our environment,  create hazardous conditions at work, make unsafe products, all because of profits.  Safer and cheaper alternative drugs are opposed with junk science.  These are the results of tobacco ethics.  A perverse system produces perverse results.  And they coopted the regulatory system.
