    No Pharmacists are not the most inward looking but their Guild is. Its no accident of naming that it is still called a Guild.

    Can I perhaps quote from Wiki:

    A guild is an association of craftsmen in a particular trade.

    “The earliest guilds were formed as confraternities of workers. They were organized in a manner something between a trade union, a cartel and a secret society. They often depended on grants of letters patent by an authority or monarch to enforce the flow of trade to their self-employed members, and to retain ownership of tools and the supply of materials. A lasting legacy of traditional guilds are the guildhalls constructed and used as meeting places. The modern patent system was set up to break the power of the guilds.”

    Pharmacists are just pure greed. The outrageous rort-rule that you can’t set up a pharmacy within 1.5km of another one just guarantees multi million dollars for these glorified shopkeepers- and what do they do? Hand over a packet of tablets while wearing a white coat. Unbelievable. Stop the closed shop now!
