There are parallels all over the place. Take Opiods…Here is a quote from OK AG Mike Hunter:“When companies create this conspiracy of misinformation and pseudoscience and the result is that they are creating a generation or generations of addicts and that they are in effect causing the deaths of people in our state, they need to be held accountable.”
Now apply it to sex offenders:
“When governments create this conspiracy of misinformation and pseudoscience and the result is that they are creating a generation or generations of disenfranchised and that they are in effect causing the deaths of people in our state [via vigilantism], they need to be held accountable.”
Here is another:
“Companies who are defendants in this lawsuit have systematically over the last couple of decades defrauded prescribers misrepresented the addictive qualities of opioids. And They did so by setting up entities that look bona fide, but were really just issuing propaganda and loaded studies to try to convince prescribers that opioids were not addictive and the goal there was to the space the medical community created by determining that they wanted pain to be one of the new vital signs that physicians need to treat. So companies saw an opening and the opening was let’s convince prescribers that if we have a time release element that we build into these drugs that they’re not addictive. Well nothing could be further from the truth.”
As applied to sex offenders:
“Politicians/Governments who are defendants in this lawsuit have systematically, over the last couple of decades, defrauded Americans, misrepresented the dangerousness of people that commit one sexual offense, often decades ago.. And They did so by using quotes that look bona fide, but were really just propaganda taken out of context and lies to try to convince Americans that sex offenders were extremely dangerous with frightening high rates of recidivism and the goal there was to con the American people and the courts all the way up to the SCOTUS. So politicians saw an opening, and the opening was let’s convince everyone that if we have a sex offender registry we build into the public perception that they’re safe. Well nothing could be further from the truth.” (Cite all statistics here)
And another:
“My resolve is that with a multifocus approach that deals with not only public policy recommendations that help us do more holding companies accountable for their misdeeds and making prescribers understand that they have not only a responsibility to their patients as a healer but a responsibility to the public to not be reckless with their prescribing.”
As applied to sex offenders:
“My resolve is that with a multifocus approach that deals with not only public policy recommendations that help us do more holding government and law makers accountable for their misdeeds and making them understand that they have a responsibility to their constituents as leaders, a responsibility to the public, to not be reckless with their labeling, lawmaking, and power they hold to destroy lives as young as nine years old and for as long as 80 years or more.”
