    Corporation's only duty is to deliver a profit to its shareholders, and it doesn't have to consider how it affects its consumers and their livelihood unless they are required to...

    *sigh* better stock up on some of that stuff now while you can, and save it for old age, because by the time we're old enough to need it, it's going to be too expensive to afford.

    There is a movie that came out in the seventies, in the USSR, I believe. A communist propaganda film called "Borozo UFO." I've heard some loonies claim that these aliens in it are real and have visited us several times because we are their descendents.... But that's not the point.

    The movie is about these aliens who come to earth, with a miracle cure. It cures all diseases. The government kills them, because they threaten the profits of the pharmacuetical companies.

    Well, let's hope that this mess gets cleared up. If it is how it claims in this article, this treatment is a godsend... Chaplin wouldn't have had to risk going to jail after the rich dude sobered up if this was available.....
  5. If they came to the USSR why would the USSR kill them? They would not have had any private companies to make a profit, that and they could sell the mircale cure to the USA for billions, etc.

    It was a communist propaganda film, so it would have been the US/capitalist gov that killed them for profits.

  7. Radio never said which government killed them in his post.
