I have long referred to the PMG (Pharmaceutical-Medical-Governmental) Complex, the far-reaching power structure that controls more and more of our lives. Each facet provides support (and cover) for the others.
For those with implicit trust in whatever are the latest medical fads, and in what is "accepted by everyone," you will believe that "They" know what's best. Lotsa luck!
Come on! Big Pharma buys both political parties. Medicine, once in a high, exalted place in society, is now semi-owned by Big Pharma. It is, of course, the biggest drug pusher, so the two have to support each other. Where it gets sleazy, in my opinion, is government involvement in all this.
Government supports Big Pharma in many ways. It buys, directly, huge amounts of medications, including vaccinations. Indirectly, its funding of government health programs buys far more pharmaceuticals. Government, through such agencies as the CDC and NIH support basic science research, and clinical research, culminating directly in new medications to be manufactured by Big Pharma. These new meds are, of course approved by the FDA. Just so you know, the FDA has no testing facilities. They rely upon the test results provided them by the drug manufacturers. FDA personnel comes from Big Pharma, and returns to Big Pharma... all very incestuous. Big Pharma supports med schools and large medical facilities, so they buy those particular brands. And government supports and regulates med schools and hospitals. Huge amounts of money. And government protects various aspects of Medicine and Big Pharma, notably holding them harmless from the destruction and death caused by vaccinations.
All the while, the three parts of these cabal plot to increase its control over our daily lives. They want us to believe that They know better. Local, state and federal public health agencies do this, with help from the legislatures.
What does Chiropractic get from the government? Nothing... nada... bupkes. No millions and billions in support and for research. But we do get regulation and oppression... plenty of oppression. You see, Chiropractic is not part of the PMG, nor would we want to be. We just want to serve the public by correcting THE #1 interference to health... Vertebral Subluxation Complex..
Oppression from the PMG? Chiropractic gets plenty, from the oppression of chiropractic colleges, to the lack of respect within the court system, to regulatory boards. Seen my 2006 "Chiropractor of the Year" award? That was for valor in fighting against the anti-chiropractic chiropractic board of California. Yes, the board members are chiropractors (sort of), but they are solidly with the PMG, happy to relegate Chiropractic in this state to rub-a-dub on bad backs and necks. They came after me for daring to tell the truth about what Chiropractic is and what it has to offer for people. It was a three year battle, after which their "special investigator" fled the state. They still come at me and other principled chiropractors, from time to time.
So, if you appreciate Chiropractic, and you think that government should have more power running the "health care" show, you might be harboring a conflict of values. Hey, I think that everyone should be under chiropractic care from birth to death. But I would never want the government to force that upon anyone. Shouldn't there be choice... liberty... in your health care decisions?
