15 Ways the Auto Industry Would Change if it Operated Like Drug Companies


By Mike Adams, The Health Ranger

What would happen if you had to buy your car from a company that operated in the same way as the pharmaceutical industries? Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, came up with 15 unsettling changes that would occur.


  • Your car would cost $4.5 million, a 30,000 percent markup over cost.

  • The same car would be available in Canada or Mexico for less than $5,000.

Dealing with Competition

  • Meanwhile, automakers would be lobbying Congress to outlaw bicycles and airplanes, just as the drug companies try to do with herbs and nutritional supplements.

  • All auto imports would be banned. If you drove a Toyota down from Canada, you would be arrested.

  • Car dealers would be bribed with money, free vacations, free food, and free cars by automobile sales representatives to push certain cars.


  • Cars with no seatbelts, airbags, crumple zones, or other safety systems would be declared perfectly safe by the FDA, which would instead focus on the dangers of bicycles.

  • Driver's ed programs would be cancelled nationwide, and people would be encouraged to buy new cars rather than repair damaged ones or avoid accidents in the first place.

  • Safety tests showing that cars were dangerous would be buried, and scientists who produced such results would be prevented from ever conducting car safety tests ever again.

  • After being sued by customers injured in the cars with no safety systems, automakers would further lobby Congress to pass laws protecting car companies against class-action lawsuits.

  • Any federally mandated warnings about car safety problems would be printed in small type on a tiny label hidden under the driver's seat.

  • Driving certain cars would cause side effects like loss of sex drive or full-body muscle pain.


  • Car companies would heavily promote new models each year, which would be no different from the ones they were selling 30 years ago.

  • Car companies would invent reasons for you to buy a dozen or more cars.

  • Automobile advertising would be filled with pictures of happy, healthy, energetic drivers, but the cars would break down constantly, fail to perform as promised, and quickly stop working.

  • Cars would be sold to you with extra features like a sunroof, air conditioning, or a navigational system, but when the car arrived none of these features would be included, just as drug companies exaggerate the "multiple health benefits" of their products.

Not only that, if you set up a bicycle shop and rightly claimed that bicycle riding could help improve heart health, heavily armed FDA, FTC and IRS agents might break down your unlocked door, confiscate your bicycles and computers, and terrorize you and your staff. Criminal charged might be filed. This is the Criminal Element in Government (CEG) operating under color of law. I am in contact with several who have experienced this sort of thing. - R. Loyd
