Big news for anyone interested in crypto. Another nail in the coffin for public acceptance as a currency to. I know blockchain and the stuff it allows like Oracle contacts are catching on. I think, at least from my casual observation of crypto, that it wont be used as a currency beyond anonymous transactions and investment. I wonder if there will be data supporting manipulation before this instance the article talks about.

Do it and decide for yourself. It helps me when i'm scatterbrained and is good practice for being aware of your emotions and nixing the negative ones before they get to far along. Videos like this are idiotic considering it's a subjective experience.

I agree that another company will by the assets and fill the gap in the market left. The human cost of the transition is hard to swallow though. It brings up the question, If we have let certain companies gain such control on the health of the nation, what amount of sacrifice is too much to re establish independence from them?

The first step at would be to change monopoly on production of a drug maybe, but that's a whole other rabbit whole with its own drawbacks.

My post was influenced by emotion. You're right, it's a complicated issue. I'm not sure there will be an easy solution.

    Worldwide sales for the full-year 2018 were $81.6 billion

Maybe if all 50 states can make a case it will be something of impact. I'm of the opinion J&J, and the other 2 corporations charged in Oklahoma, should be barred from doing business in America. Let a competitor come in who isn't going to create a drug epidemic that will be a burden on families, hospitals, and taxpayers for the next 20+ years if not longer. It could be argued they've created a problem that will never be solved completely if you consider the addiction rates of those raised in homes with a parent who is an addict. I'm not sure if it is possible to bar someone from operating in America but in a perfect world it would be.

I enjoyed the history portion of the article.

I'd never went to put myself in a situation where something electronic malfunctioning prevents me getting to something I need to. If I need to see who is coming and going I'd use a camera. I cant say my opinion wouldn't change if it concerned a business and the people coming and going werent just friends and family.
