General / Big Pharma Gets An Immunity From .GOV
« on: March 23, 2011, 04:12:01 AM »
link: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/03/22/betrayal-of-consumers-by-us-supreme-court-gives-total-liability-shield-to-big-pharma.aspx

Quote from article:
A U.S. Supreme Court decision has just given drug companies total liability protection for injuries and deaths caused by government mandated vaccines. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) called the decision a "betrayal" of the American consumer. In a 6-2 decision, the Court majority voted to reject substantial evidence that current law was fully intended to protect an American's right to sue a pharmaceutical corporation for injuries that could have been prevented if the company had elected to make a safer vaccine.
The court decision leaves parents with no way to hold vaccine makers accountable and no feasible way to get compensation for the injuries suffered by their children; furthermore, the decision removes all financial incentive for multi-national drug companies to make vaccines as safe as they can be.

Sickening, yet predictable. Guess what? Now big pharma can get away with making anything it wants, despite who it kills. Line up for those vaccines, people!

The Polling Pit / Is Anarcho-Capitalism Immoral?
« on: May 01, 2007, 02:32:03 AM »
Claiming that all forms of force and all forms of government are immoral creates the fuel necessary to attempt to legitimize a radical belief in Anarchy. Is it wrong to take this course? Discuss.

When an Anarcho-Capitalist claims superior morality in justifying no use of force, what is their primary rebuttal and solution for creating a society without a government or "state"? Privatization, and the free market, right? The question which they have not considered, out of shear ignorance I can only assume, is "what happens when these private enterprises become too forceful and powerful?" additionally, what keeps these private enterprises in check? I see Anarchy as being self-destructive, and completely immoral for attempting to promote a far more volatile societal structure, one which actually has no real structure and is entirely dependent upon the supposition that all people will happily leave one another alone and function in a non forceful manner.

What are your thoughts?

The Polling Pit / Would You Pay For a (moderated) FTL Forum?
« on: March 18, 2007, 10:36:06 AM »
A strictly moderated FTL Forum?  :shock:

I doubt it would happen. Idiots being banned? Intelligent conversation? Respectful posting? Professional forum atmosphere where progress can be made?
