After John Kennedy was assassinated and overnight the world turned upside down, I was not even 21 years old and pregnant with my first child. No wonder then that a few years later, while in graduate school, I was primed for C. Wright Mills 1956 classic, The Power Elite, devouring that book and other “heretical” texts throughout the mid to late ’60s. So, you might say that for most of my long long life I have been anything but naive as to the enormous discrepancy between appearances and realities. Nevertheless, it took the combination of Naomi’s Klein’s Shock Doctrine and John Perkins Confessions of an Economic Hitman to awaken me fully to how predatory capitalism is intertwined with the military/industrial complex.
Despite that my original idealism had been corrupted into cynicism, the first time I came across the evil astonishment of pedophilia and child murder among high-ranking, well known politicians, thanks to Kathy O’Brien’s Trance Formation of America, I couldn’t believe it. Simply couldn’t believe it. Nor could I forget it. Even so, it took me years to absorb the ghastly implications of O’Brien’s autobiographical story — detailing how the human mind, via MK Ultra trauma-based conditioning, can be controlled, split, turned into multiple personalities which function, on demand, as manchurian candidates.
I have now been alerted to an extremely important Big Pharma whistleblower.
Unlike the first two types of whistleblowing, the truth about how the Medical/Pharmaceutical Complex has controlled our minds and bodies has been with me for decades. I stay away from allopathic doctors, and the very idea of taking a pharmaceutical drug for any purpose whatsoever is anathema to me. However, this is the first time I have come across Gwen Olsen, author of Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher, and thank galacticconnection.com for the original reference. Though her story has been “out there” for nine years, and her book since 2010, perhaps it will now reach a greater audience.
Hey, all you sheeple who still stand in line at CVS for your prescription drugs, how about turning instead to dietary, exercise, and other lifestyle changes? How about taking charge of your own body, your own mind? Your own destiny?
Olsen’s story hits close to home here in Bloomington, due to her telling us that what finally pushed her to get out was the tragic story of her niece, who had attended Indiana University until an accident derailed her, pushed her into pharmaceutical pain medication, which led to a “mental illness” diagnosis, drug interactions, depression, and eventual suicide.
