I am a journalist and I reckon you should follow the money... when there is any. Corporations can control science, for a while, but they normally do so when there is a product making them billions, like cigarettes or oil. If anyone was making good money off selling us something there'd be money to follow and I'd follow it gladly. I see above the idea that Big Shrink is implicated. The idea the psychology industry (mostly independent operators in small clinics) is coordinated enough to suppress the much larger, richer and more powerful pharma industry, which would gladly sell us pills at high margins, is risible. Yes, they are powerful enough to fill a void, but if there were an alternative, medical explanation, they'd be toast. As for vaccines, I don't want to definitively say they are utterly blameless in all domains. I lean towards thinking the evidence is strongly in their favour at the moment, while I remain open-minded to future studies. Any links from vaccines to me/cfs are just so very tenuous. We get MECFS after we get sick, not after we get vaccines. Unfortunately, our disease remains unexplained because it is complex, not because of conspiracy. People latch onto agents who they think can explain unknown phenomena. In certain communities the agent is America or the CIA. In others it is bankers, in still others, Jews. All of these are powerful groups but they control less than people hope for. tl;dr: A conspiracy suppressing understanding of me/cfs is wishful thinking. It's far worse than that.
