The Pharma-Titans,

future rulers of the world,
are searching for
or seeking to invent
a malady which affects
almost every human being,
and requires continuous,
lifelong treatment by medication
- preferably one with side-effects
easily treatable by a less-expensive pill.
They don't realise that they
already have this almost-universal ill:
It has a non-medical
(but Latin) name: civilisation.

They already are. Rulers, that is.

The pharmaceutical industry is a sign that people are sick en masse, and a guarantee that they will be, for being healthy is not very profitable.

The popular idea of health is about – what a surprise – consumption: consume the right stuff (if you can afford it), and you'll be fine. Exercise, eat well, have a “wellness” weekend (after 5 days of not-so-well-ness) – and then go back to your sickening job to produce more garbage! Repeat for 40-50 years. What a joke.
