Sorry, I mean "Bring them to justice!"
Johnson & Johnson is being prosecuted in Boston for a kickback scheme to drug our parents and grandparents in nursing homes with the so-called "anti-psychotic" Risperdal, which causes strokes and diabetes, not to mention: abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, dry mouth, sore throat, abnormal walk, agitation, aggression, anxiety, chest pain, coughing, involuntary movements, nasal inflammation, decreased activity, decreased sexual desires, lack of coordination, impotence, dizziness, dry skin, difficulty urinating, heavy menstruation, tremor, weight gain, lethargic feelings, joint pain, difficulty ejaculating, and respiratory infection.
(Oops - I just can't help imitating a TV commercial once in a while. My wife is a carreer advertizing professional, aka "madwoman".)
I understand the utility of prosecuting a corporation: money - huge fines. Excellent. I absolutely wish the U. S. Attorney in Boston the best. But I really want to find individual criminals, too.
Somewhere there are a couple guys who got together and said to each other, "Hey, we can make a lot more money if we can get nursing homes to prescribe Risperdal for their residents on a routine basis. A little bit of payola might go a long way toward overcoming those silly objections that these people aren't psychotic, don't hurt anyone and really don't need to be neurologically disabled. And nobody really cares about old people anyway, that's why they're in nursing homes. We can get away with it."
Maybe a conversation like this actually happened, at some modern, little Wannsee Conference.
In 1945 Nazi Germany was destroyed utterly, but the world has never stopped going after individual perpetrators of the Holocaust. The monsters are almost all dead now, but we can't help knowing in the depths of our collective soul that they must still be hunted, each and every one, even into future lifetimes.
In 1865 the Confederate States of America were destroyed utterly, but for a century and a half the world has continued to fight racism. Even now we must enact and enforce hate crime laws against the likes of Edmund Ruffin, Josiah C. Nott and Thornton Stringfellow in our own day.
War against Big Pharma is fine, but I want to identify and prosecute the new monsters, too. What about Joseph Biederman for example? He is singularly responsible for putting thousands of young children on psychotropic drugs, ruining a significant portion of a generation, all in the name of "bi-polar" or "ADHD", but really for money or just the pure thrill of destroying life.
Biederman's not the only one, but there are only a few who are truly evil. We need to find them and bring them in. For practical purposes, there is no higher calling.
