I saw a BBC program the other day, Judge John Deed, which had the story line that major pharmaceuticals were working to get legislation “snuck” through Parliament in England to make them immune to lawsuits for any damage caused by their products in the “war on terrorism”. One line in the show struck me — that this had already passed in the United States. The episode is entitled “Evidence of Harm” in two parts, from 2007.
Sure enough, it’s part of the Homeland Security Bill of the early 2000s. I found this link on an article by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., among others describing the issue and how a specific company, Eli Lilly, had managed to gain protection against suit for its product “thimersol” which is a preservative used in vaccines.
On the heels of reading this, and other commentary on this unbelievable situation, I just saw a video posted by another individual chopping up Heber Jentzsch for his work in the late 80s, early 90s to bring about awareness of the invasion of the pharmaceuticals with deadly concoctions into the culture, and Eli Lilly in particular.
Two things strike me at this point: First, the ingress of pharmaceuticals and the patent vested/conflicted interests in their influence on legislators to put themselves above any law that might rein them in as they carry on drugging the society with what they know are noxious substances. Second, the irony and weirdity of “ex-Scientologists” now aghast at Heber for speaking out against the drugging of the culture and somehow finding it sensible extolling the victimhood of drug companies in the name of “surviving Scientology” (?!)
That last one, man, if that isn’t a flip on the GPM then Robert’s not your father’s brother.
