Big tech’s psychedelics grift
They helped create the disease, and now they want to hoard the cure. This was the plug for Prozac when it first came on the market in 1988… no matter: a new therapeutic savior has arrived in the form of psychedelics.
If you think it’s a little strange that Big Tech – currently best known for breaking democracy, enabling the spread of medical misinformation, and knowingly endangering the mental health of children – would suddenly be concerned with our well-being, you aren’t alone, and you’re right to be suspicious. A generous take on their involvement would be yes, and: They are generally interested in both healing people and making money, which is how it works in a free market economy. A more cynical read would be that this is purely opportunistic.
