Taking potshots at big pharma is a bit too easy. The drug companies do as much good as they do harm. But it's a business, and like any business it needs regulating, proper oversight and transparency, and it's the government that's been falling down on the job in that respect.

The name of Thomas S.Szasz springs to mind when you all talk about this "pharmacologization" of society. He's the author of The Myth of Mental Illness", which I'm sure most of you eggheads have heard of, or even read.

You’d be surprised at what people in this area do for money…
