Pfizer cashes in the lives of poor African children for the chance to make money off of rich American ones

Totally evil.

Of course, this is the kind of thing that happens when you have a worldwide culture that says only the lives of the wanted, convenient and healthy are worth living. Color me not surprised in the slightest that someone decided the lives of poor, ill Africans were expendable for the sake of "progress." And lying about it? Totally acceptable when it's for "the greater good" as imagined by progressives everywhere.

This is not a corporate greed problem. This is a soul-of-a-generation problem. Greed that trumps ethics is only a symptom -- the culture of death is the sickness. Too bad the smart people at Pfizer can't come up with a vaccine for that.

Did you see The Constant Gardener? This was actually the plot of that movie. It's hard to believe it actually happens. How do people who do stuff like that sleep at night?

But I'm confused about the role that progressives' concept of "greater good" plays in this. Progressives are not generally the end of the political spectrum thought to be in bed with the pharmaceutical industry, right?
