Ken:  Hi!

Perhaps I missed an earlier post of yours, but what I read above is 
difficult to understand.  Would you please expand on what it is you are 
trying to say?

For example, you say "The big-'profits' are in creating artificial 
stimulus-response situations re. 'drug' use."

Are you talking about companies like Eli Lilly, Bayer, Syntex, Hoffman, 
etc. -- the big drug companies?

And your last line, "All the more reason to stand-against-it".  Stand 
against what?

Thanks,

earle
