    There is no abstract to this, I'm afraid.

    I've underlined some bits I thought were interesting.

    I think CBT/GET proponents might fit in such a description

    I think the latter is an issue with a lot of government-funded research in the UK and the Netherlands, for example, where there are lots and lots of studies on various CBT/GET/rehab studies and related studies by proponents of CBT/GET/rehab studies.

    as always, it's about control
    see same kind of crap with of course linked ot this, pharmaceuticals, but also, oil, power generation, food and information
    he who controls these, has you by the balls.
    currently this massive intertwining lust for control is dragging the entire structure of the Human system down

    These issues are why I started looking into Zombie Science (old name, same principle) several years ago. Its not just academic researchers, or physician researchers and influence over reviews. Its also about corporate sponsorship, bureaucratic support and sponsorship, influencing grant bodies etc.

    Under this kind of thing you don't need an overarching conspiracy, this climate works against science and the public good without any centralized directive.

    I thought it was interesting how patient organisations got a couple of mentions as part of the solution, given how CBT/GET proponents like to criticise them.
