For the first time in a long time, the world has the perfect opportunity to validate if special interests, stock holder driven corporate maleficence and other unpleasantries really do govern our destiny and liberty.
Just a few days ago it was announced that there could be a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, a debilitating (& frustrating) condition that until this potential development, means a lifetime of inconvenient and costly injections.
Although it is possible to live as anyone without diabetes can (including consuming ice cream and cake), diabetes takes over the life of the sufferer and immediate family, with all the paraphanalia and procedures required for successful governance taking priority at any meal or social occasion. (And I speak from considerable experience.)
The only beneficiaries are my other favourite Earthborn entity, big pharma. In fact, having just this hour visited a McDonald’s (healthy chicken wrap) and observed once again what one can witness any Saturday, families of unhealthy parents and tragically even more unhealthy children being stuffed with heated carbs (carcinogenic), artery lining heated fats, sugary or sweet drinks, (and no government initiatives to stop this madness, that is as bad as handing your kids a cigarette), we can all agree that the industry relishes an increasingly irresponsible or clueless obese society. (The movie Wall-E tried to get this across.)
When I was a lad, we were walking or sailing in Wales every Saturday! What a contrast, eh?
As per my pre-discussed elsewhere life altering experience in Palo Alto in the early 90s, this is the actual strategy of such corporations, whose execs all play golf together, NOT the thoughts of a conspiracy theorist!
You know where I am going here..
Will big pharma use all manner of crafty influence to unjustifiably discredit this remarkable life altering development, modify it such that it’s not permanent therefore requiring a repeated dose of something, or (miracles can happen), let it be and move into another industry, such as curing Ebola?
Only time will tell!
