What did I tell you? Swine flu - another scam!

What many of us already knew. Swine flu - another scam! This article criticises the way certain drug companies, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche, paid so-called experts to scare the bejesus out of us and forcing our governments to stockpile Tamiflu which turned out to be a waste of money as a full scale pandemic never happened. (Click on the title link to read the article.)

"City analysts say that pharmaceutical companies banked more than $7bn (£4.8bn) as governments stockpiled drugs. The issue of transparency has risen to the forefront of public health debate after dramatic predictions last year about a swine flu pandemic did not come true."

This is the age we live in where the manipulation of ordinary people has reached new heights. Where once we thought somewhat naively that knowledge would set us free, knowledge about human behaviour patterns has instead been used to control us and make money from us in much more pernicious and secretive ways.

And drug companies will soon be seen as the absolute poison in our midst:

"The tentacles of drug company influence are in all levels in the decision-making process," said Paul Flynn, the Labour MP who sits on the council's health committee. "It must be right that the WHO is transparent because there has been distortion of priorities of public health services all over Europe, waste of huge sums of public money and provocation of unjustified fear."

What have we learned throughout all of this? Fear sells! It is now a commodity like oil and gold when used by secretive and unscrupulous people.
