Pfizer, ‘Lazy Mickey’, and a Foolproof Future Business Model
“We’ll have to prepare for the next one…
that, I’d say, will get attention this time.”
(he and mad evil-bitch wife smile evilly)
Erectile dysfunction, it’s known as these days. Sometimes the boyo just won’t poke the head up to go ‘standin proud’ at business in hand. We’ve all been there. Of course, it wasn’t always known as such. Over the years, it’s had other names: ‘Beer mickey’. ‘Speed mickey’. ‘Lazy mickey’. Lots of others besides. And leaving aside the use of substances, what it generally comes down to is fear, nervousness, emotional blocks, etcetera, which brings us in a convenient circle right back to the use of substances, for what’s that all about but a cure for the hang-ups? Vicious circle indeed.
What I’m getting at here is the concept of ‘disease mongering’. And disease mongering, for those unfamiliar with the term, is the practice of grossly exaggerating and marketing the idea of a given ‘disease’, in order to grossly expand potential for the flogging of the cure. A nasty practice, it is, and one intimately woven into the business models of most pharmaceutical companies.
The most canonical example of this I can bring to mind is the legendary tale of Listerine, which began life as an antiseptic used to treat everything from athlete’s foot to gonorrhoea, but with the advent of antibiotics fell somewhat out of use. It was then rebranded as a floor cleaner, before pharma found a new use for it when they invented the medical condition of halitosis in order to sell it as a mouthwash. To which I say, you clever sneaky little bastards.
But Big Pharma, I propose, has now gone even farther, in this, the age of medical totalitarianism. Not content with simply inventing imaginary ailments, evidence suggests pharmaceutical giants are going into the business of actually creating new diseases so they can flog us the pre-prepared cure.
Who, at this juncture, still believes in the zoonotic origins of SARS-CoV-2? Are you still buying the pangolin-tongued-a-bat wetmarket story? If so, go back to sleep, we’ll wake you when the next pandemic hits. It’s now evident the thing was created in a lab, and with a ‘vaccine’ churned out in only a matter of months, that had to have been prepared well in advance too. But let’s not rehash the whole argument; can we simply agree that Big Pharma made a killing ($180 billion and counting) on a product that does sweet-fuck-all, therapeutically speaking, and yet for all that some chumps are gonna line up to take it in the arm again this winter? Say it ain’t so…
So, with this in mind, don’t sit there and tell me there ain’t a few heads on the pharma boards thinkin to themselves, “Hold on a minute, we have this product, it costs nothin’ to make, all the governments of the world are contracted to buy it from us, it does fuck all but maybe make five per cent of people chronically ill, but hey, we have immunity and no one can hold us accountable for it… so what are we waitin’ for—let’s roll out another one!”
Hell yes they are.
Let’s recall this year’s revelation by Jordan Walker that Pfizer is engaged in ‘directed evolution’ (which is simply another name for ‘gain-of-function’ research, which is itself another way to refer to ‘bioweaponisation’), a means of ‘forward engineering’ a virus in order to make it mutate into different strains and perhaps make it more virulent, all with the express purpose of creating “preemptively developed vaccines”. Convenient, huh? Talk about taking disease mongering to whole new levels…
You can shrug it off. Blame the pangolin. Blame misinformation and the antivaxxers. Blame Joe Rogan. Blame whoever. Or you can just wait a year or two, and when you see Bill Gates grinning demonically at you from the stage of Ted X, sayin “I think you’ll find I said this was gonna happen”, then maybe you’ll finally start to comprehend that it is, and always has been, about the money.
But don’t worry. Pfizer already has you covered for lazy mickey. They’ll have you covered when they unleash the next pandemic on us too.
