Have you ever thought that a cure for cancer would be withheld because it would interfere with pharmaceutical profits? Maybe that thought is far-fetched…or is it?
Pharmaceutical companies make huge profits with all the medicines they advertise. Have you noticed how much advertising there is now related to one drug or another? Poly-pharmacy is alive and growing in this country. It is the true drug war that we are losing. One always wants to believe the best, but maybe it is the worst we should be aware of. Profit above People seems to be more than just a phrase.
Then there’s GM. Ten years and nothing. Families have buried loved ones. Now, finally, recalls and more recalls. Now, they are sorry. Why? Maybe, sorry they got caught? Like little kids…fessing up after the fact…caught, now trying to look concerned. No matter what they say, you just can’t help thinking, “Profit above People.”
There are many more to mention, both on the corporate and individual levels. The Good Book tells us that the love of money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10. Enough said.
