and this one is famous – it makes us sick or stops “working” – no, it’s “working” all right! You know because you feel sick!

“Did I say ‘lowered the dose’? What I meant to say was, umm…’increased the efficacy!’ Yeah that’s it. Unfortunately that didn’t work in the end because people kept dying. Which is why we had to make up the excuse that it was because the virus was mutating. Yeah that’s it. Edward Bernays would be proud.”

Now, the patient is being killed at a slower rate. I too was told on my very first visit, “we don’t know when but the medicines will stop working…resistance.” How can there be resistance to a virus that has never been properly isolated in the first place? Yep, the wonders of “modern medicine.”
