Matt Kibbe is joined by Adam Andrzejewski, CEO of Openthebooks.com, to discuss the complex web of payola that exists between major pharmaceutical companies and scientists at the NIH. Many of these government bureaucrats, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, receive royalty payments for products they work on. Now that they are in a position to regulate, and even mandate, the use of certain treatments, this creates a major conflict of interest. We can’t trust those in the government to pick winners and losers in the marketplace when doing so allows them to enrich themselves at the expense of the American taxpayer and even at the cost of public health.

I am focused on the root of the problem vis-a-vie govt. corruption, i.e., majority support for a coercive political paradigm. The majority’s support for the initiation of force, threats, by an elite is self-destructive, immoral, irrational. Worse, to inflict the superstition of authoritarianism on dissenters who assert their sovereignty, amounts to collectivism, another irrational belief.
To be superstitious is a common worldwide psychological disorder. It is institutionalized, glorified, celebrated in every culture. And it will destroy humanity, if not cured.
Therefore, this is where I focus, not on the “leaves and branches of the tree of evil”.
