The Windows of Opportunity
Enjoying a happy and healthy life is at the top of every ones wish list. Those of us who have lost the joys of health, or those who have the family members suffering from a devastating disease, fully appreciate the value of good health.
If the health and happiness could be packaged in a pill form and made available to public, people would be willing to liquidate their retirement nests to buy the life time supply of the magic pill. The human lazy state ensures that people would rather pay for the instant self gratification, than work to acquire it. And, the Pharmaceutical and Drug industry understands this human psychology very well, and exploits it to sell us their packaged potions as remedies to all type of ailments; form physical diseases to mental disorders, and from real ailments to the ‘make believe’ ailments.
As a matter of fact, the state of physical and mental health is maintained by adopting a healthy life style. But, in order to incorporate a healthy life style, we need to know what actually is the healthy lifestyle. Naturally, we rely upon the trusted sources around us to obtain the information and to educate ourselves on this very important subject. But, if those sources have been corrupted and infiltrated to deliberately lead us into ruining our health, rather than educating us to learn to enjoy a healthy life, then the outcome is what we are witnessing now.
In order to understand our state of health, or rather lack of it, we need to understand our so-called Health Care system – the front for the Big Pharma.
In the Era before the Big Pharma, diseases were rare, and mostly related to malnutrition and lack of hygiene. Health care, though an essential service, was not a gateway to wealth and prosperity. Health care providers were respected, and enjoyed a comfortable life, but did not have the luxury of the abundance and wealth. The health care providers of that era – doctors, hospitals and pharmacies, had no incentive in prolonging the suffering of their patients. They wanted them to be fit and on their feet fast.
That was until the health care was still a service.
The Healthcare has now morphed into a giant industry – Almost a 20 % component of the US GDP. This is the age of the Big Pharma.
The Emergence of The Big Pharma
In the early 1920s, it downed upon some clever Entities that immense amount of wealth could be accumulated by transforming the Health Care Service into the Disease Care Industry. It was a revolutionary idea and a marvelously brilliant business plan. The progenitors of this great idea recognized that the success and growth of this Industry was dependent upon the ever growing supply of new customers, holding on to the acquired customers, and selling more products to them.
And, they had the plan. The blue print of the plan was thoughtfully developed along the lines of the following age old con scheme:
The Window(s) of Opportunity!
The Grand Ma of the age old con scheme presented above, has since been metamorphosed into the Health Care Industry – The Big Pharma. It is the product of an immensely clever idea that was conceived back in 1920s – based on the same old age “windows of opportunity” con scheme. The Health Care Industry has since emerged as by far the largest industry in the US.
And, the nasty little kids of the old Ma, the likes of Macs, Kings, and Colas, are hard at work to keep on providing a steady supply of customers to the Big Pharma.
The revenue of the Disease Care Industry, aka the Health Care Industry, is expected to surpass the 3 trillion dollar mark by the year 2015 – that is almost 20% of the projected GDP of the USA. It is by far the fasted growing industry in the country. No other industry comes even close to this industry.
No doubt, it is a great success story – The very first time in the human history an industry has grown, immune to any recessions and depressions, to this extent. The Big Pharma is a unique business model with no parallels.
And, the key to the success of this industry lies in the never exhausting demand for its products and services, and the perpetual and constant repeat business.
Your good health and well-being is a grave danger to the health of the Big Pharma. In your disease, sickness and pain lies the growth and success of this industry.
The Disease Care industry, with its trillions of dollars in annual cash flow, is the largest contributor of advertising revenue to media outlets in the nation. Almost all the health related magazines, journals, and TV shows/dramas are either directly sponsored by this industry, or profit by carrying the industry approved commercials – pushing the drugs to an unsuspecting public. Its deep pockets accommodate the entire apparatus of the governmental agencies that were supposed to regulate it. FDA itself is the creation of the Big Pharma. The Commissioner of the Food and Drugs Administration always comes from the Health/Disease Care Industry – so do most of its directors.
The Industry has covered all the bases – in your sickness lies its wealth and prosperity.
