Of course it does not provide any evidence, nor did I say it did. I said it “suggested” that those industries “may not be happy”.
Making such suggestions, however, is hardly a case of slanderous “sociopathy,” in view of the known behavior of those industries. Sociopathy is a central essential characteristic of the pharmaceutical industry, not of those who remind you of it.
The youtube documentary I linked moves along a bit slowly, but there is an amazing amount of revolting information regarding these industries (especially after the 50 minute mark or so).
