The transnational pharmaceutical cartel will be positioning itself to profit handsomely if a federally-mandated adult immunization program becomes law. The proposed US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policy will be implemented alongside the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act (ACA), thereby becoming a standard component of US national healthcare policy.
On this week’s Real Politik we speak with Jeanice Barcelo on modern medicine’s theft and brutalization of the human birthing process. Barcelo is a transformational teacher in the movement to expose the violence of hospital birth and to return birthing to the home. She is also the author of the 2014 book, Birth Trauma and the Dark Side of Modern Medicine: Exposing Systematic Violence During Hospital Childbirth and the Hijacking of Human Love, a work that examines the horrors of technologically-managed pregnancy and childbirth, and how we as a society have come to accept this as a substitute for what was once a truly divine and spiritual event.

The “Internet of Things” (IoT) and Smart Grid technologies will together be aggressively integrated into the developed world’s socioeconomic fabric with little-if-any public or governmental oversight. This is the overall opinion of a new report by the Federal Trade Commission, which has announced a series of “recommendations” to major utility companies and transnational corporations heavily invested in the IoT and Smart Grid, suggesting that such technologies should be rolled out almost entirely on the basis of “free market” principles so as not to stifle “innovation.”

This paper discusses the way in which one novel expression of Asian American cultural politics has been harnessed by large-scale corporate interests to help manufacture a race-specific health panic and then profit from it by aggressively marketing dubious bio-medical treatment to the targeted population. The objective is threefold: 1) To demonstrate the efficacy of critical media studies in addressing matters of vital importance to the diverse Asian American communities, 2) To examine the complicity of Asian Americans themselves in contributing to the bio-panic, and 3) To warn of the dangers that Asian Americans face in submitting to a well-organized, heavily-funded, and manipulative corporate propaganda campaign. Finally, this essay concludes with observations that connect the current targeting of Asian American communities by the hepatitis B public relations campaign with the documented history of overseas and domestic “racial hygiene” programs mandated by the State, overseen by its agencies dedicated to “public health,” and delivered by for-profit medico-pharmaceutical corporations that enjoy a favorably close relationship with government regulatory bodies such as the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
