Big Pharma Genocide; Murder Most Foul

 

By Sunil Kumar

 

“I want to live”; a shriek that resonates through your consciousness. The human condition is a unique one; mired as we are in a strangely one-of-a-kind situation; life. To an extent the world is desensitized and compassionate at the same time; a vast ocean of complexity. Major theme of this post; medicine overtly projected as a life-giver is one of the most profitable businesses on the planet.

“Fire In The Blood”; an evocative documentary by Dylan Mohan Gray was a unique insight into the blatant encouragement to genocide provided by mammoth global enterprises in medicine; also known as “big pharma”. Facts may be evident to many people; the price of pharmaceutical formulations; guaranteed to cure multiple ailments.

 

A discriminatory global patents and IPR regime is once again controlled by the big bad wolf; the  fifty states of America. The documentary detailed how big pharma has contributed to the death of millions of people; largely in Africa and Asia; by their self-serving inhuman approach to commerce over humanity.

Valid point made; any enterprise exists for profit. But; as various renowned figures including Clinton and Stiglitz mentioned; conscience is the least of their concerns. America’s global bullying is a dual-edged sword; but the medicine issue exposes them as a villain; and not as a champion of peace and liberty.

 

IPR including patents has been used to devastating effect by pharmaceutical firms; a large majority of which have not even conducted any ground-breaking clinical research. Another instance of public money used indirectly to harm the people it was intended for; as most research is a result of government funding.

India was the humanitarian messiah in this saga; actively attempting to supply generic drugs to Africa; at a fraction of what branded conniving spread-sheet toting “big-pharma” wanted to.

 

The racist nature of big pharma’s spend on “advertising and marketing” attempting to denigrate impeccable Asian companies smacked of opportunism and fear. Aware that India’s generic formulations could dent their global profits; the “big pharma” lobby responded in the way it’s accustomed to; a convenient diatribe. Diabolical Satanic pharma executives may need to live with this as a blot on their humanity; Jesus Christ will be horrified by their actions.

 

All ye faithful! When your President Barack Hussein Obama speaks eloquently about his African heritage; remind him of the sheer malevolence displayed by the policies of his administration and the pharmaceutical industry towards the plight of people in the most disadvantaged corners of Africa; affected by lack of affordable access to anti-retroviral drugs. Maybe Oprah could pitch in too; being the richest African woman.

More than 5,000 men and women in uniform are providing military ceremonial support to the presidential inauguration, a tradition dating back to George Washington’s 1789 inauguration.

The situation is frightening; when we were reminded about the “known” fact that big pharma resorts to arm-twisiting to get its way. The disease that shall be named; “AIDS” is a direct outcome of an unnatural relationship between a white actor and an animal. Whatever factors may have contributed to its subsequent rise; the fact remains that Caucasians have again unleashed a plague on the planet.

 

The presentation made by Yusuf Hamied of Cipla before the European Commission was eloquent; yet failed to transform their actions. Apparently Cipla was formed after M.K Gandhi urged Hamied’s father to open Indian companies; and encourage self-reliance. In my opinion; Mr. Hamied should be given a Bharat Ratna or a similar honor; instead of undeserving candidates who routinely receive largesse due to political proximity.

The fate of humanity; not just a particular race hinges on access to affordable health care. All your verbose debates on healthcare amount to nothing when there is no practice of what is preached around the globe.

If the Chinese are reading this; do not get too happy about your country’s role vis-a-vis the West. Moving in to make a quick profit; a little cunning to undermine India’s efforts to provide generics is not beyond you. Kindly acknowledge your Asian debt to this nation; and attempt to do a little better than before. Control Xinjiang and assist Tibet; revive its heritage and culture; a land which civilized your barbaric ancestors. Hiuen Tsang; travels to Yin-Tu(India) for the Buddhist masters!

The Clinton Foundation; why don’t you leverage your Democrat clout with Congress to change the situation. After all; Bill appeared genuine enough. Ditto for the Microsoft czar;  according to the documentary maker and other public sources; you seem to be remarkably quiet on this glaring tragedy staring at you starkly in the face. Warren Buffett’s cheque size was pretty huge;   according to the media.

 

The new Indian government; we hope that you shall show some spine in dealing with the brutish idiotic negotiators of the West; and ensure medicine remains affordable; in India(makes sense for us, definitely) and the other countries which we were assisting.

 

 

As for big pharma; concerted effort by NGOs and activists for public awareness is essential. Until then I suggest; please watch “Fire In the Blood” or go to fireintheblood.com.
