This week, Brezsny tells the Gemini:

A respected medical journal reports that one out of four people thinks that "scientists have already found a cure for cancer, but that this cure is being withheld by the health care industry because it makes more money treating the illness." There are a lot of paranoid theories like this going around. Millions believe in the existence of elite puppet masters who manipulate our shared resources to serve their own power and wealth rather than the public good. I'm not smart or crazy enough to evaluate these theories. But I do know that for you right now, Gemini, it's crucial to be extremely skeptical of every authority, expert, and leader. You should express similar discernment toward those who present themselves as hip, high-status, or special. It will be to your advantage to disrespect hierarchies and become a devotee of pure democracy.

And my moon sign, Leo, is told to be careful and a bit conservative this week. Interesting.

I've been doing a bit of this anyway, 'cause startups are like that. But more could be good.

[Side note: I'm still *way* not caught up on LJ. That may not change.]

Which respected medical journal? In which article?

I think that seven out of eight blogs will repeat statements about anything.

A quick Google search on the phrase in question comes up with information including "The survey results will appear in the August 1 issue of the journal Cancer." Don't know that one, so I don't know how reputable it is.
