We must thank the Americans for many good things that they have given us – of course for a price. Right from the fantastic technology platforms, Facebook, etc. etc.
On the other hand we must also know what huge damage they have done to the whole world. The damage that they have done and continue to do to India include the damage to the environment. And I am not even talking of all the porn, armaments, and the sin industry that they encourage. I am talking about their Big Food, Big Finance and Big Medicine – the damage that they are doing is really huge.
Look at what Coke, Pepsi, McDonalds, Dominos are doing to the youth. Every MONTH one kid in the office goes for a kidney stone operation. This happens simply because the simple water has been replaced by Coke, Pepsi or Thums Up.
The medicines that they have patents on are priced about 100x the cost to the wholesaler – and we get it at about 200x the costs.
Do we have a choice of whether to use their products? Sure we do. However their advertising to the brand slave generation ensures that the consumption goes up dramatically. The consumption of soft drinks has gone so down market that in big shops it is easy to see the financially weakest people buying big bottles of soft drinks and packets of chips.
Shame on the government of India for allowing all these products to be taxed so low. Let us face it chips and sugar colas are not FOOD. They are junk which cause a lot of harm to the bodies and the disposal of bottles causes a lot of damage to the environment.
