It's great to hear the other side of the coin, as it were - especially from someone who is able to back up what they are saying with (we trust) solid
Material of this quality will undoubtedly contribute hugely to the goal of denying ignorance and facilitating well-informed discussion.
I have only had a chance to view the first video, but - with no disrespect intended to a man of Dr. Green's stature - I would like to very briefly
raise what appeared to me a significant hole in his line of argument, namely that those who work for Baxter are, a priori, neither intelligent enough
or evil enough to pull off a nefarious conspiracy. I am certainly not saying that they have engaged in something of this nature, rather simply
pointing out that Dr. Green's counterargument, which consisted of nothing more than "I don't believe..." does little to counter suspicion,
especially in the light of the way he openly admitted that theories relating to the role of this particular pharmaceutical company are, relatively
speaking, not without some merit.
My point is this: he firstly stated that those who work in this area are dealing with something more complex than nuclear physics. If anything, this
serves to emphasize how extremely intelligent these people are, inasmuch as they not only understand the field in a general way, but are actively
engaged in/ dealing with cutting-edge research, not to mention constantly exploring the possibilities for the manipulation and exploitation of
microbiological systems. The reply has to be: if anyone is intelligent enough - they are.
As to the degree of evil that might be involved I don't think serious debate is centred around caricatures of mad/evil scientists out to destroy the
world driven by sheer hatred, etc. But there is widespread mistrust of corporations that have the ability to effectively lobby governments to
adopt policies that send truly cast amounts of tax-payers money their way - given the right set of circumstances (such as a virulent and deadly virus
threatening entire populations). A lot of people are awake to the fact that there are people who are led more by financial gain than by
conscience, and that such people do, from time to time, gain positions of influence, both within corporations and governments.
Dr Green's argument on this issue has, therefore, done little to allay concerns of the possibility that pharmaceutical companies may actually be
manipulating data and/or vaccines to their own ends.
