What If?

Some medical journal in England is now blasting away at this guy who claims to have done research that demonstrates that vaccinations might be related to autism. Now, I will be the first to say that maybe this guy is on a little shaky ground with his research methods and all, but whenever I see established interests go after someone with guns ablazin' who asks a provocative question, then my first response is, what if?

Let's assume for a moment that there is a nexus between the panoply of vaccinations that kids are given and autism. Let assume that it can be proven that these vaccinations have created a sub-class of human beings who are going to live for a very long time, needing constant care and medical attention and the manufacturers know it. Seems to me that the pharmaceutical companies manufacturing those vaccines and the MDs injecting them are, as they say, exposed. We are talking about about three to four decades of malpractice claims that can easily bankrupt a minor European nation. Opps sorry, bad example, most of those minor European nations are already bankrupt. This would be the mother of all malpractice initiatives. You think you are inundated by those mesothelioma lawsuit commercials now, you ain't seen nothing like the ambulance chasing for autism plaintiffs that would go on.

I think back to the Corvair, "Unsafe At Any Speed." It took this whack-job Ralph Nader to expose the utter indifference that a major corporation had toward it's consumers. Death and disability to large corporations is just another cost-accounting entry in the vast ledger know as greed.
