Here is an example of a doctor who was fired from his job at a public health agency for trying to improve the health of his county's citizens. What do you think about this?

the overall message is right, it's just that he got too militant and over-the-top. off course Dunkin Donuts would complain about his "America Dies on Dunkin" slogan . bashing any business like that is going to get you sued. he's probably turning more people off to his message than on. once again, a good message gets lost when people become militant about it. way too much vinegar, not enough honey

He fights for a good cause but businessmen will not understand and will NEVER understand the fight. They will eventually use their power and money to those who rally against them. And that's what happened to this doctor.
