Big Suppluh

All this talk about Big Pharma. Well, there used to be these things called "Rail Roads," and they were Big and controlled a lot of the old-time American Economy, and they had Influence, and controlled Legislative Bodies and Executive Branches and Judiciaries. Nowadays however Rail Roads are a Foot Note.

Well, railroads are a good idea. Trucks are for moving freight around inside cities, and trains are for moving freight around between cities. Call it a Stalinist if you must, but there is an economy of scale. No matter. We've moved beyond railroads, and reality is what it is.

Same though with the drug companies. They are very important, very powerful, because people give them a lot of money because they want and think they need the drugs. Money is for getting power -- even if only the power to fulfill material dreams, buying things to be happy. But in this instance it's about influence and power -- lobbyists and favorable laws for large corporations. No point in complaining about it. If you don't like Big Pharma, don't need their drugs.

What, though, if you have issues? What if a doctor looks at your situation and says you're sick and such and such is the cause and here's a drug you must take for the rest of your life in order to suppress the symptoms until your death? What then? Well. We do not give in, give up, submit, merely because of an opinion. We investigate for ourselves, research, find alternatives, find solutions. We never crumple. We stand, or we fall and then stand, but we never lie down and fall asleep in the snow. Is there no one who loves us, that we should despair?

Medical doctors are about illness and drugs, not about health and healing. Suppression, instead of cures. No, not all doctors of course, but the Establishment, man ... Big Medi. Yes, it's simplistic. But it's true. Don't take medicine, drugs, unless they cure, or rather aid your body in curing itself -- or at least improve the quality of your life more than they hurt it. Better, provide your cells proactively with what they need, feed them the nutrients, the necessities that allow them to do the job they're made to do. Metabolic competence. Nutritional rationality. Rather than diktats based on theories and imposed from far off centralized bureaucracies. Who knows, maybe New Deals and Five Year Plans and Great Leaps Forward could work ... someday. And maybe toxic drugs are the best way of dealing with some diseases -- the kind where you're about to die, so try anything.

The doc sees an issue, and assumes it is the problem. A logical fallacy. An alternative is that with excellent nutrition and some time, will come healing, and the "medical" problem -- health problem, rather -- should go away. Provided the body is given a chance to heal itself. When it comes down to it, our concern is not with causes, but with cures, not with problems but solutions. It's not about blame, it's about results.

There are needs that people will not fulfill for themselves, until someone else starts the process. It's what friends do for each other -- we care about each other, and show it by caring for them, tangibly, whether materially, or emotionally, or what have you. There are limits, boundaries, and that's a nuanced thing, but there are clear needs as well, and helping in such instances is not only a pleasure, it's a duty. If you do not have the expertise, you still have the ability to encourage. That's a medicine, too. But it's friendship, and it's love, as much as it can be shown.

We protect and fight for and sacrifice and are loyal to what we love -- country or family or friends. It's faithfulness, without which everything is betrayal. That's no way to be.
