  1. Tuskegee Syphilis Study. It was a 40-year long study conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the US Public Health Service that involved 400 African American men with syphilis who were not informed of their condition or given proper treatment in order to study the progression of the disease.


    the “budd dwyer” incident

    I only found out about it by chance long after graduating highschool.

    Basically, in 1998 the secretary treasurer of Tennessee got caught up in a bribery scandal and Dwyer figured that the only way out for him and his famly was for him to call a press conference

    Get up on stage

    Produce a manilla envelope

    Talk about how “This is the only way to protect his family”

    take a .357 magnum revolver out of the envelope

    Paint the backdrop backdrop with his brains

    You can watch a video of the whole thing. It is bizarre to say the least

  3. There is countless of those, America is the biggest lier in terms of what they do and how they present themselves.

    But as you said, I would also agree that the FED thing and how dollar operates is sort of biggest scandal that will bring one day absolute terrible consequences

  4. Vietnam was mostly about weapons testing on living human subjects. That’s the only reasons a mission like that was ever approved. Half of the cold war was just that

    Similar weapons testing missions that completely disregarded human life happened throughout history.

  5. Most western nations do not have local cops.

    In these countries, policing is the responsibility of state or national governments.

    The link between local governments and policing in the US is one of the main reasons for poor policing, institutional corruption and perverse incentives.
