While reading about the absolute and appalling behaviour of Purdue Pharmaceuticals keep in mind they were supported, without question, by the medical industry. Doctors. Pharmacies. All massively profiting from the massive harm caused by these drugs. To individuals. To families. To entire communities. Decimated. Damaged. Destroyed.
Yet, during the alleged pandemic- the pharma players pushed experimental vaccines on the masses. Aided and abetted, again, by doctors, pharmacies. And worse of all- Government coercion. Massive government coercion. Shaming. Demonizing. Hating and encouraging hatred of. Those of us who chose to not inject this swill into our bodies were abused, horrendously. But, there was no real reason to take such an unnecessary risk for a virus with an extremely high survival rate- very nearly 100%
What of the government cooperation and coercion of their own populace? This isn’‘t democracy. This wasn’t freedom. This was fascism. What of the constituents of countries, like Canada, who freely and abundantly abused others. Viciously and maliciously. What can one say about them? Should we have empathy for them? Or should we hold them to account for the abuse they partook in, of their own vilition. And quite frankly with a whole lot of glee!
Let’s read some excerpts from the Globe and Mail article. While thinking about the mass collusion, abuse perpetrated. And the harm that has been done. And the harm that is yet to come. Not just from the jab, but from the lockdowns, the discrimination, job losses etc., etc.,
Lengthy article in Globe and Mail- Why did it take the world so long to accept that Oxycontin was highly addictive and killing in droves
That reporting evolved into a 2003 book titled Pain Killer, which described how Purdue Pharma, the maker of OxyContin, used illegal methods to promote the drug, and how the company and its allies distorted science to convince doctors that strong narcotics called opioids were safe.
I’m going to repeat that
Over the next 20 years, opioid prescriptions skyrocketed, and some 225,000 people died in the United States and Canada from overdoses involving OxyContin
“Medications such as OxyContin are produced by pharmaceutical companies and legally prescribed by doctors. Opioid use in the U.S., which peaked in 2012 at an astounding 255 million prescriptions, has steadily declined since then – but even in 2020, opioid prescribing in some areas was nine times higher than others, according to the Centers for Disease Control.”
I’ve often wondered how a public-health crisis that could have been contained instead turned into an inferno.
This was compounded by companies and some professionals acting in appalling ways. Opioid manufacturers dumped hundreds of millions of pain pills in the U.S. and Canada. Doctors operated “pill mills,” dispensing opioid prescriptions for cash. Pharmacies turned a blind eye to the mobs of customers lining up outside their doors. Those entrusted with protecting the public – lawmakers, regulators and bureaucrats – failed to take steps to blunt the epidemic’s trajectory.
As the opioid epidemic accelerated, lawyers, consultants and spin doctors also rushed in to make fortunes protecting Purdue and other opioid producers. Chief among them was McKinsey & Co., the world’s most prestigious consulting firm. As recently as 2014, according to The Globe and Mail, McKinsey offered Purdue Pharma Canada a plan to boost opioid sales.
McKinsey was still doing banner business advising executives at Purdue’s main headquarters in Stamford,
McKinsey- you may recall a scandal with the Trudeau led Liberals?
Why did people, from doctors to consultants, continue to push OxyContin, despite the decade-plus of information and reporting that had emerged about its dangers?
What kind of dissonancehad to exist, to allow this ethical quagmire to persist even as the opioid crisis grew and grew? The reason may appear simple – Purdue’s deep pockets created monetary incentives – and certainly, that was a factor. But a more complicated reason was the power of ideology, driven by a compelling narrative
Purdue launched a massive marketing campaign for OxyContin after it was introduced in 1996, resting on a simple claim: that the drug would be less prone to abuse than shorter-acting pain pill
One might think the U.S. Food and Drug Administration would require Purdue to submit rigorous evidence to prove this. Instead, in an extraordinary blunder, the agency accepted Purdue’s theory that drug abusers –
An extraordinary blunder- they accepted Purdue’s theory- Not a blunder. That is standard operating procedure for the FDA and Health Canada as well
Purdue’s narrative didn’t implode in the medical community, and doctors kept writing OxyContin prescriptions. As it turns out, that’s because the company was hiding critical information from doctors …. No, I’m shocked! (Facetious)
There were some that spoke out. A few, but, mostly silence was golden and profitable- If youre not thinking about the experimental covid jab as we review this material than I’d have to assume your head is stuck in a place that is suffocating, stifling and has limited your ability to reason and think rationally. Yes, I’m suggesting you’ve got your head up your ass!
