...it's not so much people trying to push nature into the medical industrial complex as the medical industrial complex doing the pushing -- controlling what is natural an nonpatentable and have total control of our health....
I see both: certain people and the complex. The certain people are individuals and organizations outside the complex. They aid and abet the complex, in effect making them a part of the complex. Either those people know they are part of it or they don't know they are part of it. Those certain people -- think: the pink ribbon people and especially the Susan G. Komen foundation, this foundation the spring board of breast cancer awareness (including bca month?) and everything else cancer awareness promoted to the hilt, even is infecting venues of manly men (American professional sports) and rendering them ridiculous and tools to people who recognize what's going on -- are patina to condition the populace to think putting nature into the complex is good. Meanwhile, the doing -- the acquisition -- of nature is by the complex. The battle, as always: The system creates an externality to itself to battle it to fashion a middle (which is the authentic externality to the complex) to suck the middle into the system.
I'm for decentralization too, but the right kind. We won't get a second chance to do decentralization if it's done wrongly. (Too) much wrong decentralization will be to the detriment of everyone disagreeable to the system.
Cancer awareness. Yeah, someday cancer will be so prevalent that everyone will be aware of it and unable to go to the park down the street without being made aware of it. Cancer awareness month and the rest of it. The irony.
