American Addict: The Medical Police State

by Jon Rappoport

Readers who’ve been with me for a while know that I bring a different perspective to events and trends. And that is because, despite mountains of propaganda on all sides, I refuse to forget about the Individual and his enormous potential.

Once again, in the case of medical drugs, I take up that sword.

The addiction to medical drugs is fueled by the invention of a disease-label for every conceivable behavior and human reaction under the sun.

These inventions attack a vulnerability summed up by people who say to themselves, ‘Maybe there’s something wrong with me that I don’t know about.’

The vulnerability increases, because the individual is forgetting he has an independent existence. As this amnesia sets in, what takes the place of his intrinsic confidence? A general sense of dependency.

Here’s the dependency formula: ‘I need to rely on others to understand myself; I need to listen to the advice of friends and family; I need to listen to the experts; I need to belong to the group; I need to think as the group thinks; we all need to wear our disease-and-disorder diagnoses as badges of pride and honor.’

In other words, in society, we have a complete reversal of what constitutes pride and honor. Under the guise of showing ‘sympathy for the afflicted,’ a massive psyop is underway to promote the notion that we are all afflicted and confessing to it is good thing.

With all this in mind, let’s get to a few facts.

According to “Medical News Today,” in 2011 the number of drug prescriptions written in the US. was 4.02 billion.

Yes, 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

That’s about one prescription every month for every American.

The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.”

Yes, I’m sure the drug industry popped champagne corks.

We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the number of pills Americans took. We’re not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.

“Pharmacopoeia,” a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to about 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.

We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America and other countries from the inside. Wars, no wars, economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives.

Many sources can be cited to confirm this assessment.

On January 8th, 2001, the LA Times published an article by Linda Marsa: “When Good Drugs Do Harm.” Marsa quoted researcher Dr. David Bates, who indicated that, in the US, there are 36 million serious adverse reactions to medical drugs per year.

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published the most stunning mainstream estimate of medical-drug damage in history: “Is US health really the best in the world?” The author was Dr. Barbara Starfield, a respected public-health researcher at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.

Starfield concluded that medical drugs were killing Americans at the rate of 106,000 per year.

The pharmaceutical juggernaut will continue, no doubt about it. The only question is, how many people will wake up and seek another way?

The destruction of societies by medical drugs goes far beyond what some people call “over-prescribing.” This isn’t just a tilt in the wrong direction. It isn’t simply errors of judgment compounded by the number of doctors dispensing medicines.

Those are all polite terms suggesting the situation can be corrected through a show of good will and better judgment. That will never happen.

Countries of the world are literally being assaulted by pharmaceutical companies and their foot-soldier doctors.

To even begin to see light at the end of the tunnel, hundreds of millions of people must add themselves to the rolls of those who already are pursuing better health through natural means.

Not even the Nazis and their dearly beloved cartel, IG Farben, dreamed of the day when the citizenry would line up and demand to ingest more and more life-destroying chemicals.

In America, the devastation is at the highest level. The medical-drug “solution” is viewed as entirely normal by millions of people. They accept medical authority as real and authentic under most conditions. They buy into the blizzard of drug ads on TV. They basically want drugs.

Under the surface of the robot mainstream news, there is a struggle going on, between people and forces which dictate medical answers to every human problem vs. a natural approach to maintaining health. These natural alternatives are far more important and vital and real than the news dares to suggest.

In case anyone thinks the FDA, the single agency responsible for certifying drugs as safe and effective, has “overlooked the problem,” Go to and search for “FDA, Why Learn About Adverse Drug Events.” You’ll find the following statements on the FDA’s own site:

“Over 2 MILLION serious ADRs [Adverse Drug Events] yearly; 100,000 DEATHS yearly.” (emphasis in the original)

The only thing missing is: “And we, the FDA, said the drugs were safe.”

Drilling down to the bottom of this medical holocaust, we find The Individual. How does he view himself? How does he view his own future? How does he view his own power and independence? Does he fundamentally see himself as a dependent creature, subject to the needs of The Group? Does he basically believe what other people are claiming is good for him?

These questions and answers can’t be measured by a survey or a poll. They occur privately, in the core of consciousness, where one’s personal future is brilliantly invented…or sacrificed on an altar of self-sabotage.

  1. Ten years ago my husband came home with a prescription for Lipitor in hand. Apparently he had been to the Dr and was told 280 mg/dl was too high for total cholesterol and this was the fix. I said no, this was no fix but a patch and instead, let’s discover the cause of this and fix what we find. Today his cholesterol runs from 190-210 and he is on no meds. Because his HDL has dramatically increased, he ratio is well within a healthy range.

    My husband is one of the most creative and innovative men I know. Through the questioning of the usual approaches to methods at his work, he has brought the company to new products that have been highly profitable. A non questioning person clinging to the status quo is the last label one would give him. Yet, he would have blindly accepted judgement from a man in a white coat had it not have been for me.

    In our own fields of expertise we allow ourselves more latitude in judgement. We see the fallibility of purported experts and we learn though direct experience who deserves our respect. In all cases, some healthy doubt or cynicism can be good. However, when confronted in areas without experience or knowledge, we tend to give blind respect to appearances not knowing how to evaluate.

    People seem to lack the inquisitiveness or search for knowledge in all things today, not just medicine and their personal health. Perhaps we are lazy? Perhaps we simply don’t care? Perhaps we have given up in futility and reject our incredible personal power for simple temporal distractions? I just don’t know. But it seems to me if people will not awaken from their self imposed slumber, there cannot be any change in this or any other area.


    1. “People seem to lack the inquisitiveness or search for knowledge in all things today…….”

      A sure sign of a dead or rapidly dying society/culture consumed by fear and doubt and placated by bread and circuses. I’m not discussing an obvious fear such as one prompted by perceived imminent danger, thought that also has the same effect. Rather I speak of the residual sum of all our (generally false) fears, mostly unspoken and unquantified thereby attaining much greater significance in our mind than warranted.

      The boogieman under the bed is extremely frightening until one summons enough courage to peek under the mattress and find themselves looking back. Fear is the mind killer and accumulated residual fears is the deadly cancer.

      Perhaps the Roman Catholic’s are on to something with their ritual of confession and contrition. Of course, in that case the ritual is used to control and pacify. But the concept of purging and forgiving ourselves is an extremely important part of clearing out all those dank and dark corners of our mind and spirit.

      We are only as sick as our deepest darkest secrets, those eroding cancers we keep hidden even from ourselves. It’s never too late to start our spring cleaning and move forward from there. The thing is……once the place has been thoroughly cleaned, it’s so much easier keeping it clean.
