We kinda knew this all along, eh? Kudos to the Post for AGAIN telling it like it is. Who funds the Post and why does it repeatedly tell the truth when other papers refuse to do so?

I hope you guys can see this. Apparently they teamed up with 60 Minutes. (Which I watched sometimes when I was a kid.)

Doesn’t this little explanation make a lotta sense? They’re PROFITING when people get hooked. Never mind that massive amounts of people die. They do not give a shit.

Thoughts?

  1. This is very troubling. My brother got his start with Eli Lily. He always wanted to be very rich because Dad was often unemployed. The company could pay him a six digit entry level salary. He is working for another mega-corporation. Probably also Big Pharma since they pay well.

    He is a kind-hearted man. Because of cognitive dissonance he can’t accept that much of what these companies make is poisonous.

    1. You do see the cognitive dissonance in many fields. For instance, I was on a bus once opening my big mouth about anti-incarceration. Another passenger said that the people in prisons are very bad, impossible to rehabilitate. She said her source of knowledge was that she worked in one as a prison guard.

      Well? Of course, the job, even the training, had brainwashed her to see her underlings as subhuman even before she worked the wards. From there, with her tainted view of inmates, it only got worse.

      1. “Once a thief always a thief.” In Les Miserables Jalvert realizes Jean Valjean has indeed changed when the ex-prisoner saves his life, risking his own liberty. Because he can’t stand the thought that he owes his life to a “thief” Jalvert commits suicide. I’m not anti-incarceration for convicted felons. But I hate to write off another human being as irredeemable. They really should do something about the records thing, since many ex-convicts have nowhere to go after being released.

      2. We are dealing with two arguments here (which is sometimes 75% of the problem). Can a person change? And…is imprisonment the best way to deal with crime? A third question would challenge the validity of the justice system. I believe justice has been demonstrated to be biased, in particular along the color line.
