Duty to Warn

“To their shame, these organizations often act like Big Pharma lobbyists and often ignore (and even suppress) a lot of the new evidence-based medical research data that may contradict the established, sometimes out-of-date medical dogmas that most well-off establishment groups adhere to. Ignoring or repressing new research and ostracizing conscientious researchers is  bad medicine and bad science.”

Everybody should be aware by now of the large amount of control that for-profit multinational corporations have over both state and federal legislative bodies and most of our congressional and presidential politicians (except for Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein). But they also have a lot of control over the major media, the “defense” spending priorities at the Pentagon, America’ educational institutions, many of our medical schools and1267436152 even what constitutes post-graduate medical education for physicians.

For-profit corporate influences on for-profit medicine and for-profit “blue ribbon panels” explains much of what is regarded as the very profitable “standard of care” in medicine today. It also explains the prescribing habits and politics of many of us physicians.

Indeed, there has been a crisis of confidence among a small minority (as usual, a minority) of conscientious physicians, citizens, voters and employees of those institutions. Some of the folks that have become aware of what is happening may eventually rise up to blow a whistle on the creeping corporate domination of what is left of free, democratic America.

One only has to consider the corporate intrigue that has allowed the emergence of the anti-democratic, pro-corporate agendas of NAFTA, ALEC, Citizens’ United, the PATRIOT Act, the Homeland Security Act, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, PNAC, the National Defense Authorization Acts, the endless war agendas, etc, etc.

Most of my readers see the evidence of that assertion on a daily basis. It is everywhere. It is blatantly evident when listening to politicians, watching the news on TV, reading the newspaper, paying for our unaffordable health insurance (that has unaffordable co-pays) and inaccessible health care (with large, unaffordable deductibles) or when filling our next unaffordable prescription at the pharmacy. Everywhere you look, Big Business is extracting money from our pockets. Big Pharma and Big Insurance don’t even try to hide their nefarious agendas anymore. They, like most powerful, wealthy, sociopathic organizations, seem to have no shame.

In medicine, the mark of corporate dominance is obvious in the drug commercials on TV and in the silencing of the voices of conscientious science-based drug and vaccine skeptics.

Vaccine manufacturers: What a friend you have in SCOTUS

“The 1986 law was passed as a protection to one of the largest contributors to political campaigns. It was a specially designed program that removed the right to enter into state or federal court and to sue for damages as a result of mandatory vaccinations which even in 1986 were known to cause more harm than good. “

In what should come as no surprise to anyone who has watched as the Supreme Court routinely renders rulings which are clearly protective of corporate interests, another “opinion”, one clearly meant to protect big pharma from being held even remotely liable for the harm and damage caused by toxic vaccines, was just handed down. In a majority opinion by Justice Antonin Scalia, the court ruled the federal law preempted all design-defect claims against vaccine manufacturers. These would be the design defects that kill people, cause autism, neurological damage and lifetime physical impairment.

Apparently Justice Scalia is unaware that no law can be enacted which abrogates your individual rights.  Any law that attempts to deprive you of your rights is null and void on its face as if it had never been.  Actually, Scalia doesn’t really care and has routinely issued opinions that are written as if he is living in some other universe where he makes up his own laws and then decides they are real.
