Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
--C. S. Lewis, God in the Dock, p. 292.
Apparently from the memory of sewage water, right?You still don't answer the real question. How does homeopathy work?
Sorry, I meant to type owned.Oh, and anybody that uses pwned automatically loses any argument
Its quantum magic, no seriously, didnt someone prove water has a memory already? Just because something is unknown doesnt mean it mustn't work.
“Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.” - Bertrand Russell
You do not need a drug company to come up with some pill to treat sickness.
There have always been herbs and other natural medicines that have been used for centuries. All drug companies do is take these natural medicines, put them in a pill and claim they own them.
I don't care where medicine comes from (unless it's gathered in an ethically questionable way, of course). All that counts is whether a remedy actually works or not. When it comes to something as important as our health, we shouldn't rely on hearsay alone, but do our best to test the efficacy of medicine. That's where medical science comes in.
If you have 35 minutes to spare, I recommend listening to this story about the endeavors of an amateur cancer researcher.
There's just something about snakeoil salesmen that irk me, whether they're at the county fair or in Washington D.C.

"Capitalise your gains and socialise your losses might make sense to a few, especially the few who wish to exploit others without repercussions but it does not make for a good or healthy society
