The Big Pharma Conspiracy (that vaccines somehow cause autism) by Thomas D. Taylor, creator of Midnight in Chicago
In recent weeks, I have been involved in discussions about whether vaccines cause autism and whether certain treatments for autism are “quack” treatments and therapies.
For the record, I do not believe vaccines cause autism, nor do I believe in many of the other conspiracy theories surrounding autism. And I believe a significant number of autism therapies and treatments are indeed “quack” therapies and “quack” treatments.
“Big money” and/or ”Big Pharma” and/or whoever else is allegedly involved always seem to be the culprit in these conspiracy theories. As if, when a person or company or group of them crosses an arbitrary financial line or exceed a certain profit margin, they have suddenly changed camps or are required to do so by some unspoken law of duplicity.
There are PETA activists who are 18 years old college students in debt up to their ears with student loans who have been able to infiltrate slaughter houses and expose the atrocities within via video, or via documentation they’ve managed to get from supposedly secure computer records, but not one person in the vaccines-cause-autism camp has been able to produce a video of a secret meeting where government officials and Big Pharma collude against the public, nor have they produced a document that says that any conspiracy theories are actually in operation.Part III
It is absurd to think that we supposedly have generations of people going to their graves with undocumented and unverifiable wealth hidden somewhere that has gone unnoticed by the IRS or any other revenue authority in any country.
It is ridiculous to think that all these people would have the knowledge not only to participate in this conspiracy without friends, family members, acquaintances, lovers, et al remaining clueless about what’s going on, as well as to have a working knowledge of all tax laws, the most efficient methods for successful money laundering, and more.
Do conspiracy theorists mean to suggest with the hundreds of thousands of people involved in all of this, everyone would be able to keep this secret and not tell anyone not in the loop? What possible gain would someone on the lowest level of pay be able to achieve when they could simply break the silence and make millions on a lucrative book deal by telling us all about the alleged conspiracy? Or all book and magazine publishers part of this conspiracy as well?Part V
Another take by David Gorski M.D., at Science Based Medicine The Pharma Shill Gambit
Question: Identify the profit and/or benefit to doctors when they make the following pronouncement to a parent: “I’m sorry. There is no medically approved treatment available for autism.”
Now here is what I find interesting. There is a segment of the population generating billions of dollars in revenues from the alleged autism epidemic, and they are using Big Pharma chemicals to do it. Who are these nefarious people? Why, they are quack therapists.
