SILENCE MAKES YOU AN ACCOMPLICE

Where’s our Martin Niemöller?

This graph, presents a poem, which been shared plenty of times in the blogosphere. Please, allow me the opportunity to present it again.

I want to apply it to our present time.

I’ve seen it many times.

Every time it makes me think.

More so now, in view of the ugly turn in the road where American politics seem to be headed.

To me, the bottom line is that if you don’t speak up for others who are somehow persecuted, eventually your turn will come and there will be no one to stand up for your when you are persecuted.

It’s time to stand up and hold your ground.

~MARTIN NIEMOLLER~

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

The quotation stems from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. Different versions of the quotation exist. These can be attributed to the fact that Niemöller spoke extemporaneously and in a number of settings.

Much controversy surrounds the content of the poem as it has been printed in varying forms, referring to diverse groups such as Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jews, Trade Unionists, or Communists depending upon the version. Nonetheless his point was that Germans – in particular, he believed, the leaders of the Protestant churches – had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of millions of people.

First he came for the Mexicans, then he came for the war heroes, then he came for African Americans, then he came for the immigrants, then he came for the Jews, then he came for the “gays” …. now he’s coming for the Muslims. Maybe you can add someone else or he will continue adding groups.

Is anyone going to stand up to him?

Something to think about …. “Times are a’changing … Salk versus Shkreli”!!


AIDSPol

~~September 23, 2015~~ 

GREED VERSUS COMPASSION

TOP: Hedge fund CEO, Martin Shkreli, who bought the rights to a 62-year old AIDS and cancer treatment and jacked up the price to profit from misery.
BOTTOM: Jonas Salk, who developed a cure to one of the world’s most debilitating illnesses and could’ve made millions … but he gave it away to help as many as possible.

Capitalism versus humanity.

Before people start saying Daraprim is not an AID’s drug, it is a immune infection fighting drug for AIDS patients who are not immune to fighting other bugs, so technically this is one of many drugs that AIDS patients do take to fight against their weak immune bodies.

Martin Shkreli, the controversial pharmaceutical CEO and former hedge fund manager, announced that he would reduce the price of the drug Daraprim to “a point that is more affordable.” Shkreli has been the subject of unrelenting criticism since he implemented a 5000% increase in the price of the drug — from $13.50 per pill to $750 — which is used to treat severe infections in AIDS patients and infants.

Shkreli, who talked to ABC News, declined to name the new price for the medicine, which has been on the market for 60 years. ABC described Shkreli as “the most hated man in America.”

While working at a company he founded called Retrophin, Shkreli had implemented a similar price hike on a kidney medicine. The Huffington Post reported that Shkeli “is part of a criminal investigation” involving Retrophin. He owes the company more than a half-million dollars.

From a Facebook Page I follow

Call me a cynic, but I’m willing to bet this was Shkreli’s plan the whole time.

He wanted to raise prices, but knew he’d get flak.

So he raised them an exorbitant amount, and now is seen to be “caving” — he’s dropping the prices, but NOT back to where they were.

So he’s probably getting the price increase he actually wanted.

And bear in mind what I said when I first posted about this story:

In Poland, you can buy 30 of these pills for about $10.

Why have they cost $13 apiece here?

Oh, that’s right: The Free Market.

Unfettered Capitalism.

America!
