We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

I found it more interesting that so many people suddenly became pro big Pharma after years of claiming they were the devil willing to do anything for a buck. I'm not sure many of them even realized they flipped a switch, which makes it a bit comical.

This whole ordeal has been eye opening in numerous ways.
Wtf are you talking about? How the fuck is getting a vaccine "Pro Big Pharma"?

People seem to ignore that someone getting sick and requiring thousands of dollars to keep them alive is a pretty good money maker for the industry as a whole.

I take it you don't have organic hippy friends, family, or customers who have made the flip?

Pre covid they thought Pfizer was the devil. For years I never mentioned I've given tens of thousands of vaccinations made by these big companies. If I was to mention the above, I myself would have been labeled a heathen. Today, fear has them on the pulpit throwing fire and brimstone at those who won't get the jab, even if those people are pointing out similar concerns to what they would have pre covid.

You can be pro vaccine without being pro big pharma.

Big pharma has spent way too much money advertising and lobbying and developing lifestyle me-too drugs for things like cholesterol. And fighting against generics. And not developing needed drugs that are only taken briefly like antibiotics.

But their accomplishments with covids were/are impressive and this was a situation where throwing tax payers money at it and not worrying too much about penny pinching was absolutely money well spent.

But yeah, the big pharma industrial complex leaves plenty to be desired.
