A religion for profit and passion for commercial goodness

What a vast issue this is. No smart-talk crystal gazing
holds the multiple venues of these issues.

True enough now the lies and self-serving perspectives
presently strangle much visable life from any complete
authenticity within healthcare. The systems moan with
heartache while using tremendous industrial chemical and
surgical force forgetting many of the fundamental
requirements of genuine healing. Merchants and manufacturers
somewhere else away from the sickroom "need" their winnings
and the game goes on...fixed from above and within.
