Tweet 5 of 5 – musings on big industry and politicians


No.1

Society will enthusiastically adopt new technology without considering the consequences.

No.2

You cannot rely on industry to act in the public interesteven when their practices are going to pollute the entire planet

No.3

Politicians are no more responsive to issues of public health than they were in the 18th century

No.4

Remedial action only happens when individuals make their voices heard above the clamour of vested interest

No.5

AND THE ONE I LIKE THE BEST:

Disinformation is a standard industry tactic whenever profits are under threat.

With acknowledgment:
