Insanity – doing the same things over again and expecting different results. PHILOSOPHY. Using an obvious sports metaphor – with apologies in advance for any shock value – I do not believe we can “win” on the animal research issue, biomedical research funding, NHP transportation or lab animal breeding this late in the game in 2015. However, I radically believe that we can DELAY DEFEAT indefinitely by playing to win. Through focus groups and polling during the last seven years I have come to realize that a simple, two-word phrase, resonates unlike any other with audiences worldwide: ONE HEALTH. The all-encompassing “OneHealth” phrase forces Sarah Palin to pullback from chastising the “frivolity” of taxpayer-funded worm research; it forces activists to reconsider Great Ape research when hundreds of endangered Western Lowland Gorillas could be vaccinated against Ebola; it forces opponents to recognize the hypocrisy of providing a “Make A Wish” seat in First Class while denying that passenger’s potential cure in the cargo hold; and it forces all of us to accept the serendipity of a biomedical research “moon shot” where research successes AND failures ALL contribute to the body of knowledge which is ONE HEALTH. Since the animal rights movement started in the mid-1970s, the research community decided that their best offense was a good defense. Clearly, that “game plan” is no longer working. I believe our “game” is over in the year 2020. If we don’t get out of our “prevent defense” and aggressively play to win, we will be outscored and the game will be over as we saunter off the field to our quiet locker room labs in India and China. American and European jobs will be lost. American and European ingenuity and innovation will be lost. Our best hope – perhaps our ONLY hope – is to even the score over the next five years and get this game into overtime. The ONE HEALTH message has the power to delay defeat by playing to win...indefinitely.
