This piece is part of my Soap Box Series; a series dedicated to my opinions about hot button topics. “The Science of Capitalism” is my commentary on big pharma and corporations whose focus is their bottom line rather than the health and welfare of people. Acid yellow and toxic symbolism immediately put the viewer on alert. Pieced together lab equipment stemming from bottles of chemicals and spitting out pills draw attention to how little we know about the contents of what we take. A money stuffed pocket prompts the viewer to question motives. So I ask…Is it science or politics? Has pharmacology lost its way? Do benefits outweigh toxicity and harm? Are we fed half-truths to fill corporate pockets? Are we all just lab rats?
