This might possibly be so. Then again, I see in the papers that the cures
to flu and HIV infection have been developed by Australian labs. They have
then been sold to the people with the most money, but brilliant innovation
hasn't been noticeably stifled. Australians, pitiful victims of raging
socialism though we are, developed in vitro technology and a lot of the
fundamental work in immunology.
It's a complex issue.
