BIG PHARMA, CORPSCIENCE INC., AND CORRUPT.GOV

BIG PHARMA, CORPSCIENCE INC., AND CORRUPT.GOV

You may have guessed that this week I've been focused on issues of science and corruption, particularly with respect to the connection between Big Pharma and Corrupt.gov. Well, today, you can add Corpscience, Inc. to that mix, shake, and stir, and you get... a mess. What am I talking about?

This article was spotted and shared by none other than Catherine Austin Fitts, and I have to blog about it, but not for the reasons one might think in reading it:

FDA and NIH let clinical trial sponsors keep results secret and break the law

Now, beyond the obvious reasons for interest in this article, there was one paragraph in particular that caught my eye, for its implications - if one thinks about them - are immense. It's this:

Many scientists who conduct clinical trials, and their sponsors or funders, have downplayed concerns about late or missing results in ClinicalTrials.gov. Researchers, doctors, and patients can instead learn about trial outcomes from peer-reviewed publications, they say. But thousands of trials are never published, particularly when they find treatments ineffective, history has shown. ClinicalTrials.gov also uses a common format, allowing relatively easy comparisons of results across trials that journal articles rarely make possible. Doctors, researchers, and potential trial participants rely on the site, to judge from its 215 million monthly page views. (Emphasis added)

I'm reminded here of the story of "genius" Thomas Edison, and real genius Nikola Tesla. In school, we're told how Edison tried and tried and tried to make a light bulb, trying first this method, and then that. Nikola Tesla, who at the time was working for Edison, was watching all these trials and failures, and finally - and one can imagine, with some exasperation on his part - he simply told Edison to pump out the air in the bulbs and make them a vacuum, and the filaments would not burn out so quickly. Sure enough, Tesla's idea worked, and Edison took the credit for it and "invented" the light bulb. (And don't even get me started on Edison's "brilliant" idea for direct current electricity and power plants and the environmental disaster that would have been. Fortunately, Tesla's alternating current won out.)

Which brings us to the problem hinted at in this article: if one does not make known the "ways that didn't work," one actually impedes scientific progress for the very simple reason that if the failures are not published, others might be trying the same or similar methods to achieve the sought-after results, causing massive and unnecessary duplication of effort for what will be a failure. It's the failures of different methods that allow the Tesla's of the world to observe the common factor in those methodological failures, and to propose a very different solution. In this case, failures involve treatment protocols, and therefore, human health and potential suffering. The price, in other words, of not knowing about the failures, is both financial, and human.

And there's a final cost, one which, perhaps, explains why Big Pharma doesn't want the failures to be made public, for after all, there might be some medicinal or biological Tesla out there, who can spot the common error behind all the failures, and propose - independently of Big Pharma - a solution which would give him, and not Big Pharma, the benefit of the patent...

See you on the flip side...

  1. “Thousands of clinical trials are never published, particularly when they find treatments ineffective.” Isn’t science wonderful!

  2. Open society is based on folkmoot, that is based on truce between clans. Agreements are confirmed by assembly, and witnessed by the folkmoot.

    Those, who do not participate in this structure, were never a part of the society, and left to roam in the wilderness like animals.

    The Runes explain how open society was organized and maintained. That is whole point of the Runes, being a sosial contract.

    In 782AD, Charlemagne slaughtered a Runic folkmoot in Verden.

  3. Lab .05 anyone Big Pharma would embrace any want to be Victor Frankenstein. Country simple if you put any trust in these institutions well I would wish you luck you will greatly need it.

    By the way, here are your results for the trials your about to conduct/The corp guy then hands the folder to the scientific clinic Lab$-r-us guy.
    The journals are going to jibe w/your report, because I wrote those results as well, says the corp guy to the lab guy as he turns to go out the revolving door.

    Written by the 2-B-blackballed scientists, are the real trials and would be published authors, if there was in truths in this system based upon fraud.

    I looked at OriginChilds comment on tobacco and that pretty much is the template.

    Ah. Now getting to the part about the real relationship between Fast Eddy and Tesla! Finally inked are some damn truths about the genius Edison myth. There are so many of these made men it makes me sick to think of the bodies they’ve stepped all over throughout the centuries. The Wetiko Disease of Exploitation, Imperialism, and Terrorism in spades!

      The Edison’s and the Gates are the coming power curve. The pitch men laying out the ground work to monopolize and/or capitalized on that coming shift.

      Ah, but therein lies “their” true genius: monopoly.
      But w/a twist. In keeping w/the cognitive dissonance dichotomy agree-upon model; we now have two space programs. The public tragedy as farce, expensive horse and buggy show business; versus, the real business of high technologies in energies to travel ahead and make the discoveries the public will hear about decades into the future. The definition of a Breakaway civilization boldly scamming the masses. CO2; Private Banks creating/issuing reserve currencies; health care, that is insurance care; and, on & on, ad infinitum.

      To accelerate this madness are the coming-on-line technologies of AI culture; that is here and now a present expanding danger that is becoming a planetary-scale computing megastructure. This will and is now drilling-down to the most significant transformation at ground level: talk and everyday life.

      Their business is keeping us lab rats compliant in experimental laboratories.

      God forbid we get wise to their deception$.

  5. Ah, so the pharmaceutical industry has modeled itself after the tobacco industry for the development and distribution of its medicines using the same schemes that protected them from government oversight. In terms of artistic styles, this situation is not a Rembrandt–but a van Gogh. Why would we want impressionists manufacturing our medicines?
