THE ROAD TO HELL IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS
AND BIG PHARMA MONEY
Taking advantage of the grief and anger resulting from personal tragedies, the
pharmaceutical industry has been engaged in a decades-long campaign to sell more of
their products to an ever-widening sector of the public. Assembly Bill 1421 is one result.
A very sophisticated long-range campaign planned and executed by Big Pharma is
divided into three phases:
FIRST: Lobby state legislators to pass forced drugging laws (disguised in concerned
liberal terms) in most states. This has been accomplished, as 44 states have passed
some version of these laws. The trick here was to pass the laws without any funding
mechanisms, thus making it easy for politicians to vote for them.
SECOND: Lobby local counties for the money to implement pilot programs to carry out
the laws. The trick here is to avoid the issue of forced drugging by enrolling only a small
number of ‘volunteers’ in the programs, thus avoiding the nasty issue of actually forcing
people to take drugs. This is the stage of the campaign we are now witnessing.
THIRD: Implement the laws in their full power, using the police powers of the state to
force people accused of being mentally ill to take powerful brain-altering chemicals in
the community, without having to incarcerate them for long periods.
Ignored and covered up during this campaign are the following facts:
• Big Pharma is paying for this campaign;
• The connection between Mainstream Media and Big Pharma is covered up;
• The funding of advocacy groups NAMI and TAC is not discussed;
• The actual health effects of the drugs are misrepresented;
• The implications for political repression using these laws are swept under the rug.
