Rebecca Watson, the speaker, made it clear her purpose was to inform you that while Martin Shkrelli had a huge role in the raising of Daraphim prices, he was not the only one to blame. She blames the entire pharmaceutical community for making it harder for people to access the medicine they need by constantly changing the prices. Watson builds upon her purpose by pulling out more opinions such as: “Homeopathy is bullshit and many chiropractors are dangerous quacks (Watson).” These opinions allows the reader to fully believe she is dislikes and puts blame on the pharmaceutical industry and the people within it. She specifically points out chiropractors which indicates there might have been an issue with one previously that allowed her to draw this conclusion. Throughout the entirety of the video Watson seems to have an extreme biased against Shkrelli and the pharmaceutical industry.
This allows union workers to be protected against greedy corporations. After all, a corporation’s main job is to increase profit and make stockholders happy. Therefore, corporations will do anything to increase revenue, even if it means punishing the corporation’s own workers. Workers of a corporation are often viewed as liabilities, not assets. The Better Business Climate model undermines unions and makes this worse for workers.
The negative impacts due to diseases can be seen in Documents 4 and 6. In Doc 4, a report of the Conquest of Mexico, the author states the devastating effects of newly brought diseases in the Aztec kingdom. Because the Aztecs had not built up an immunity to Europeans diseases, when the diseases were brought over, the results were devastating, with many Aztecs dying and unable to provide food. Due to this report being an Aztec account of the Conquest of their land, the details may be slightly biased, and the negatives slightly exaggerated, in spite of the European conquistadors. The impact of disease ca also be seen in Doc 6, a report on the spread of disease into the New World.

We worry about health and taxes and the stock market… [and] We fall for all sorts of get-rich-quick schemes” (Mosley 1). The specific anaphora he uses is the repetition of the word “we” to grab the reader’s attention. Using an anaphora allows Mosley to address not only the problems currently in the government, but problems for the people that can possibly arise from the government. The use of an anaphora successfully allowed for Mosley to grab the reader’s attention and make them think about what he is trying to prove about the government. Despite America’s promise “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness,” author Walter Mosley argues that the U.S. government is not involved in the lives of the citizens and does not allow for them to obtain their right of happiness.
Mad in America, by Robert Whitaker, details the history of the treatment of mental illnesses in our country, including one of the most infamous, the lobotomy. The lobotomy was a surgical procedure that evolved over time. The main purpose of the procedure was to damage the frontal lobe of the brain (Whitaker, 2002). The first type was the prefrontal lobotomy, which was first performed in humans in 1935 (Whitaker, 2002). Initially the process consisted of using alcohol to destroy brain tissue, through holes which were drilled in the skull (Whitaker, 2002).
In The Constant Gardener Tessa Quayle (Rachel Weisz), a medical doctor and activist for social justice, is trying to uncover and spread information about a large drug company that, in alliance with members of the British government, the Kenyan government, and a pharmaceutical testing company, is secretly testing a new vaccine on impoverished Kenyans. Their deaths, due to the vaccine, are being covered up and supervised by the Western government without a second thought to the lives of the African people. Similarly, Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly) an American news journalist in Blood Diamond, wants to expose the unfair way that the multi-million diamond industry is supporting the brutal strategy of The Rebel Untied Forces in Sierra Leone. The RUF forcefully make African people sieve for diamonds, which they then sell to the West in order to finance their war. The west does nothing to stop the brutality of the mines or the use of child soldiers as long as they are continuously provided with
Beard 's Thesis He argued entirely different perspective on the rationale and reasoning behind the writing of a new constitution. I agree with Beards thesis because he believes that the United States is undemocratic. He made many points and supported how the Founding Fathers and the Constitution was undemocratic . For example the constitution bases all of its ideas and benefits on the wealthy men and women of the United States and not the large population of middle class men of our nation. The founding fathers put into the constitution everything that would benefit themselves and protect their financial standpoints.

It is clear that Andrew Rosen, the chief executive of Kaplan, wants to leave readers of Change.edu with the idea that for-profit colleges are innovative, efficient, and effective in serving people left out by traditional higher education, and that their bad reputation is the result of unfair attacks. I picked up Rosen 's book wanting to see how the power of the market can transform the enterprise and improve student learning. Instead, I am now more concerned about the hazards of for-profit colleges than I was before. The eye-opening, gasp-inducing elements involve Rosen 's descriptions of the intense pressures on company executives to produce quick, huge profits for investors by shortchanging students. "An investor who wants to make a
Good post Raquel, The fact that such a large and powerful pharmaceutical corporations had no qualms with lying to the FDA shows that they probably knew they could settle their charges out of court. For the sake of gaining 1 or 2 billion in profits they were willing to get caught bribing doctors and endangering the lives of their customers. Any claims of involvement in illegal and unethical activities would 've just been par for the course for them. Having the DOJ impose serious fines on Pfizer and deciding to monitor them should send a message to companies like them.
