to disrupt forever Big-Pharma's profiteering,
but not without a fight.
Imagine being diagnosed with cancer, a genetic disease, or even age-related deterioration in the morning, given a single injection in the evening, and beginning your recovery the next day.
No prescriptions, no lengthy treatments,
no difficult decisions between finances and getting better. This is
the promise of gene therapy, a promise already being fulfilled.
Gene therapy is the identifying of faulty genes, be they inherent or mutations in the form of cancer or aging, and designing a vector to replace the faulty genes with fully functional, repaired versions of your genetic code.
Once introduced, the corrected genes replicate themselves, displacing aged, mutated, or faulty versions. The technology is a double edged sword however - and can be used to harm just as well as help - in very profound ways.
Public awareness and engagement in the emerging field of
genetics is an absolute necessity to ensure this technology is used
for good rather than profit, or worse yet, increasing death and
This September 2000 document would also state:
Exactly one year later, the US would "serendipitously" experience "a new Pearl Harbor," described as such by the very signatories of this report.
This "catastrophic and catalyzing," not to mention convenient, event was the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington D.C.
The "transformations" described by the 2000 PNAC document would then unfold in quick succession, including elements described under "cyber-space" warfare now demonstrably unfolding against nations like Iran.
When it is time to present genospecific
weapons to the public, it will be those like Entine at the AEI
crafting the talking points.
His ties to
corporate-subsidized academia and corporate special interests
indicates that his intentions to abuse this technology are not
merely the rants of a single man, but an institutionalized agenda he
serves as a spokesman for.
Tying these local groups with nearby
institutions not only helps keep those on an institutional level
honest, but also working in the best interests of the majority, with
communities supporting them.
In the light of truth, people like
Entine and those he represents cannot operate with the impunity they
Another threat exists, coupled with the very promise of gene therapy.
In November of 2012, the first gene therapy to get Western approval made news. Called Glybera, developed by Amsterdam-based UniQure, it treats a rare genetic condition that effects the pancreas. Glybera may be effective over the course of an entire lifetime, meaning it is a one-time treatment.
Jörn Aldag, CEO of UniQure, proposed a question,
In reality, disease is like a war.
A nation would not "price" the survival of their nation in the face of a looming enemy, nor should they "price" the survival of their population in the face of disease.
Of all the things a nation should throw public money at, an institution of health producing permanent cures for disease and age related deterioration should be at the top of the list. Unsustainable national health care schemes consuming billions of dollars a year, in need of rationing care, as well as compromising on quality, would be transformed by such an initiative.
Special interests would be the
only ones to lose out, and because special interests currently drive
human destiny, this is precisely why such a transformation is not on
the drawing board, or part of public discourse.
Such revolutionary work should be at the center of public health news and debate - as well as how to direct more resources into this research considering the profound long-term benefits it will have on every single member of society. Expanding the human resources necessary to research and develop a new health care paradigm should also be at the center of public health debate.
However, it is not...
policies not only preserve the
current Big-Pharma profiteering
rackets, but help expand them in stride with financial frauds across
the multinational insurance "industry."
Instead, the people must take matters into
their own hands, decentralizing both the debate on health care as
well as tackling health care issues themselves.
With the Internet and free university open courseware lectures, anyone can take a crash course (MIT OCW - below video) on the basics of genetics and bioengineering:
With a table, a sink, and basic kitchen equipment, local groups already meeting in the context of hackerspaces or makerspaces, can begin exploring and educating others about biology and genetics.
Inviting professionals in to oversee more complex experiments, classes, and demonstrations, as well as manage safety and provide educational opportunities for the public can be a next step. Many university competitions involve bioengineering.
Teams require a space to meet and conduct research, to design and test experiments.
A community initiative to provide students with a permanent place to do this can lead to a community lab - opening the door to a larger collective community of DIYbio enthusiasts.
Just as 3D printers and other forms of increasingly affordable and capable manufacturing equipment are finding their way into local spaces created by various community initiatives, biomedical technology will likewise become more affordable and easier to use by a greater number of people.
It is important to have the local human
resources and infrastructure to support leveraging this technology
for the best interests of the people - not only institutions and

doing this in parallel will have a profound impact on both the
health care debate, as well as health care itself. It will encourage
a well informed air of transparency around this currently
misunderstood and monopolized discipline.
Everyone deserves the absolute best health care possible - and that can only be done through technological innovation built upon a solid foundation of education within a well informed, productive and engaged society.
Current policy seems
designed to accomplish the exact opposite, to leave society
ignorant, blind, and at the whims of an increasingly unstable ruling
Unlike bullets, genospecific weapons have the capability of permanently and profoundly changing the very nature of what it means to be human.
Those monopolizing such weaponry have the ability to either wipe us out entirely, or transform us into something entirely inhuman - subservient - or as Bertrand Russell put it:
In Russell's time, genetic engineering - instant selective breeding - was not a possibility, but what Russell's quote indicates is that the motivation exists amongst the ruling elite to achieve such disparity.
Now they have the tools to achieve it within a single lifetime.
We have the ability to break
this monopoly, and replace disparity with a full spectrum balance of
power by localizing civilization's infrastructure from the mundane,
to the cutting edge of technology.
