Speaking of which, the obesity epidemic is also largely, if not completely, the fault of capitalist mucking with science. You know the famous USDA food pyramid? The one which didn't just set down US government health standards, but shaped the entire world's cultural habits regarding alimentation? The sugar lobby paid off the scientists in order to go easy on carbs, so they made fats the big villain. The end result: worldwide obesity epidemic. And that wasn't even the only influence of lobbying in the making of the pyramid.

And don't get me started on the pharmaceutical industry. That alone is reason enough to burn everything down to the ground. For starters, we already have extremely effective drugs for autism and depression, but tough shit because they're not profitable. Too cheap and effective, you see.

I can think of a few people who can.
