The HIV=AIDS Controversy
I am dying with the help of too many physicians.Alexander the Great
Doctors pour drugs of which they know little, to cure diseases of which
they know less, into human beings of which they know nothing.Voltaire
The pathology lies not with us, but with the biomedical establishment...[The war on AIDS is] the medicalization of the continuing pogrom against gays, particularly gay men.Fred A. Cline, Jr.
The HIV/AIDS regime has been a very profitable business for massively big pharma despite all the deaths they've caused to those medicalized for being black or gay. If only the latter could get honest medical advice. There's just too much to be reaped to allow that to happen.Anon
Get with the pogrom and take your AZT.Michael Ellner
AP: Research Flawed on Key AIDS Medicine
The controversy spills over into the mainstream as ongoing clinical trials of the principal poison administered to patients who've tested positive for HIV is undergoing unwanted scrutiny at the heart of medical darkness, the NIH.
Response to Editorial in South African Medical Journal
Robert Giraldo summarizes the different sides of the controversy in a submission to the journal which has become a focal point of the controversy that has been brewing in South Africa.

My Bout of So-Called AIDS
Christine Maggiore gives an accounting of her latest brush with the dark angel of medicine and in the process provides a classic example of the cognitive dysfunction often attending medical decision making that needlessly renders the doctor-patient relationship a lethal one.
AIDS is a religious matter
South Africa is one of a number of countries that have been treated as easy prey in the crosshairs of a biomedical/industrial complex so dependant upon the golden egg-layer called AIDS. That the South Africa president through sheer logic made such a shambles of their beloved enterprise was far more than they could bear. The inevitable result has been for them to turn to the courts and clerics. By these means, rather than by simple persuasion by argument, do they hope to have their way. Guns, seemingly always in far greater abundance than butter especially where the latter is in greatest need, cannot be far behind.
AIDS Realism Versus the HIV Hypothesis
John Lauritsen highlights some of the major flaws and a few of the more diastrous consequences of the HIV hypothesis of so-called AIDS, not only to people who have been diagnosed HIV-positive, but to the whole of science itself.
Letter to San Francisco Examiner from TMH Editor
Letter submitted to the San Francisco Examiner regarding the 28 November 2001 arrests of Act-Up S.F. activists on numerous trumped up charges.

A New Approach to AIDS
AIDS educator Kriben Pillay tells Rowan Philip why he believes HIV is not the villain behind the AIDS epidemic.

Renegade conservative gadfly, Joseph Sobran, looks at why orthodox views (which, for him, are liberal) cannot permit or tolerate any debate or dissent. Money, status, and power rather than intellectual integrity seem to be the high stakes involved. So, no change there.
The Plague That Isn't
Charles Geshekter who teaches African History at California State University, Chico, makes a strong case for skepticism when it comes to the claims of AIDS in Africa. The racism that Geshekter here suggests motivates the Africa AIDS scare is parallel to the homophobia that motivates the AIDS scare in America and elsewhere in the world.
SA President Mbeki is Target of HIV/AIDS Scientists' Unique Brand of Peer Review

New England Journal of Medicine Admits Lapses
The Los Angeles Times reports that the New England Journal of Medicine has acknowledged apparently in direct response to charges in an earlier L.A. Times piece that there may have been a few bad eggs spoiling their otherwise spotless image.
From the March 2000 issue of Gear Magazine, Celia Farber uses David Ho, an erstwhile major AIDS industry player, as a case study of how to succeed in medicine without really trying. This is a great piece, but ends a bit too soon in its discussion of the role of public relations in the biomedical establishment hysteria called AIDS.
A letter from Dave Pasquarelli expands on the theme struck by Fred Cline in the quote above in response to a lurid NYTimes article included here. The very important and central issues raised in the letter are not often heard or allowed a decent hearing, so it appears.

The life of a 4-year old child, who had tested positive for HIV and had faced the prospect of enforced treatments, was spared by a Maine judge in a decision which, among other things, underscored the fact that AIDS therapies are tantamount to poisoning by prescription.
Flight from the AIDS Police
Journalist, Marnie Ko, gives an accounting of Sophie Brassard's ordeal with AIDS police over the fate of her children under court order to get with the pogrom and take their AIDS cocktails. A rather telling spotlight is briefly shown on, undoubtedly, one of the most enthusiastic participants in the AIDS research epidemic, Dr. Mark Wainberg. Dr. Wainberg indicates he's unsure whether or not the profits he receives from one of the three drugs used in the AIDS cocktail forceably administered to the Brassard children would be enough for him to retire on at this time. Ko's articles are hosted by the Alberta Reappraising AIDS Society.

AIDS Patent Browse Page
[Broken Link] Rocket science has nothing on AIDS as the U.S. Patent Office's rapidly expanding lists of AIDS-related patents both in the U.S. and abroad suggest. Update (28 November 1999): The PTO has the following announcement regarding the AIDS database: The previously-offered AIDS Database has been discontinued, since it has been rendered obsolete and redundant by the availability of searchable patent full-text supplemented by full-page images. AIDS researchers can now design their own customized searches tailored to their specific needs and apply them to the full-text database. Access to the full-text database can be found here. However, it is only for U.S. patents. The upshot is the original high-profile, rather complete AIDS patent database has been replaced by something that falls rather short of the mark.
