DISCLAIMER: I personally know a number of doctors who, as individuals, are wonderful kindhearted individuals with wonderful families. I have had many children of doctors as music students. I have even had a few doctors as music students. As is the case with judges and lawyers, the problem I address here is purely systemic, moral, ethical, philosophical and educational. There is no personal disrespect intended toward the basic humanity of anyone in the medical industry.
On the other hand, it must also be said that there is no great honor in remaining silent in the face of self-evident evil, as so many doctors have done, and continue to do. Medical mistakes are common, but, taken as a whole, doctors vigorously resist personal accountability, and do virtually nothing about it. For that reason, it is we, their customers, who must administer the "legal" free-market corrective to the collective paternalistic arrogance, asperity and greed of the inflation-leading medical industry.
One socialist doctor, Michael J. Pramenko (currently located in Grand Junction, Colorado), in an articled titled "Play doctor, help find a cure for health care reform," actually had the shamanistic hubris to write, "One thing is certain: More taxes will be needed to correct the problems of our current health care system. The payoff: Better health care for a greater number of our neighbors within a more sustainable system." What a crock of paternalistic arrogance combined with utter ignorance of economics. What makes doctor/shamans so special?! Why not have socialized groceries, socialized auto repair, socialized carpentry, socialized plumbing, and socialized legal care as well? What makes doctors so much higher a form of life than anybody else? Give me a break! For an even more egregious example of Pramenko's collectivist ignorance and arrogance, "fast forward" five or six years to the article, "Obamacare repeal advocates haven’t offered good alternatives."
Thanks to Drs. Michael A. Glueck and Robert J. Cihak, and their excruciatingly funny article titled "Is socialized legalcare next," there can be no doubt that the main beef doctors have against socialized medicine is that it means that the government will dictate that they, the doctors, will make less money. Witness several pertinent-but-revealing points of their satirical piece:
"1. No American may be denied legal care, regardless of ability to pay."
"4. Legal fees will be based on a relative value scale established in the 1980s, and will be cut back every year. Lawyers will simply have to handle more clients for less."
"6. The government will not reimburse lawyers for 'preventable errors' in practice. The only acceptable standard is perfection."
"7. Any lawyer losing a case will be deemed to have made 'preventable errors.' This provision shall be waived upon appeal through a process not to exceed three years. If the appeal is successful, payment will be made no later than three years after judgement."
"8. Any lawyer losing three or more cases will be deemed guilty of malpractice and have his/her license revoked. Since losing is a preventable error, there will be no payments to losing lawyers."
Funny as that is, it also constitutes self-evident hypocrisy. The doctors have gotten their buddies in the various legislatures to pass "unauthorized practice of medicine" statutes for the express purpose of inflating their value in the marketplace. For decades, thanks to government regulations, the medical industry — doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturers — have led inflation by simply charging whatever they want and whatever they think the market will bear. Now they whine and pretend to be "victims" of increasing ignorance-based public demand for single-payer health care, also known as "socialized medicine." That's why both the legal and the medical professions should be completely deregulated: preserving individual freedom whileincrease prevention-based alternative competition and reduce health care professionals' price in the marketplace to its natural free market fair-economic-playing-field level. Doctors have an important niche in a free society, it's just that, relative to nonnegotiable individual freedom, their niche is a lot smaller part of the whole overall economic and good-health pictures than they want to pretend it is.
I'll give you a personal example of exactly what I mean. I personally have a hernia caused by an inadequate stitching job done attendant to an appendectomy (which was successful). Of course the doc who did the appendectomy retired, so I had to find another doc to do the hernia repair. He did it, and it, too, was inadequately stitched, and came undone. I have not yet had it repaired again. And to prove that my attitude is impersonal, I may go to the same doc to get it fixed a second time because he knows what he did the first time, so logically might be better informed as to how to do the job right the second time (of course you can count on the "call back" being regular price).
Docs, with all their shamanistic arrogance don't do "call backs" like other workmen who discover a problem in their work. Why not? What makes them so superior to other workers, other than their political connections? In my view, absolutely nothing.
To fully understand the "more-highly-educated- than-thou" shamans in white coats, one has to first remember that nature itself IS, per se, a free market. Every last doctor, just like you and me — I call it the "Consumer-Producer Glitch" — wants to get paid as much as possible for his own time, effort (labor) and products as possible, while simultaneously paying as little as possible for the "other guy's" time, effort (labor) and products. Just like the rest of us mere mortals, they want to make as much money as the market in public ignorance in the subjects of economics and politics will bear, while simultaneously paying as few taxes as possible to Big Brother. See, e.g., the story, "Probe uncovers 30,000 Medicaid providers cheating IRS," in the 11/14/2007 edition of the Grand Globalist's newspaper, USAToday.
Heretical and unkind as it may sound to some, the harsh reality-based fact of life which must be pointed out is that, speaking collectively, doctors have a vested financial interest in people remaining sick and in pain. If all diseases were cured tomorrow, doctors would have to find another, more productive, way to make a living. And that hypothetical way of making a living would probably not pay anywhere nearly as well as being a state-licensed physician. As in the case of the global bankster industry, where there is not much profit in an honest commodity-based medium of exchange, so it is in the case of doctors: there is nowhere remotely close to as much money in discovering and preventing the root CAUSES of disease (that is, in helping everybody stay healthy in both mind and body) as there is in using expensive slash-burn-poison allopathic medical techniques to make huge bucks from treating the SYMPTOMS of health-related pathologies. It's a natural law of doctor-related economics that the big money is in treating symptoms, not preventing them. That's just a simple, self-evident fact. Remember the old axiom: "If you want to understand what's going on, follow the money."
Some two centuries ago, Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, said: "Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship . . . To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic. The Constitution of this republic should make special privilege for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."
As Dr. Joel "Dead Doctors Don't Lie" Wallach — see his other websites and podcasts — loves to say, "you can do for yourself about 95% of the things doctors do for you in their offices." So, since the Supreme Court of the fascist police-state federal government of the United States has lied about the Constitution for decades, fraudulently causing both the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to be utterly meaningless nominal window dressings to the U.S. Constitution, what is needed is a Freedom of Self-Medication to the U.S. Constitution similar to the one suggested by Robert R. Barefoot and Carl J. Reich, M.D. in their book "The Calcium Factor: The Scientific Secret of Health and Youth":
"It is the wisdom of the American people that it is in their best health and economic interests that each and every adult American citizen has the Ninth Amendment right to choose and to practice the form of medicine that the citizen deems most beneficial to his personal health, without economic, physical, political, or verbal interference or abuse, and any institution or government agency assigned to protect the state of the individual's health should be empowered only to make recommendations that do not infringe or prevent the individual's right to choose and practice any form of medicine upon his own body. To this end, every adult citizen shall have the right to purchase the same medicines and tools used by licensed medical doctors. So-called 'unauthorized practice of medicine' is hereby abolished. The Food and Drug Administration is hereby abolished. Pursuant to the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, the national government shall have nothing whatsoever to do with the field of medicine, health and nutrition. It is the wisdom of the American people that the fraud statutes already on the books are sufficient to deter any misrepresentation by medical practitioners. Should the fraud statutes need tweaking to more precisely deal with medical misrepresentation, limited permission is given to the various state legislatures to make the needed corrections, provided that those corrections do not infringe in any way whatsoever upon the individual's constitutional right to self-medication."
“However, amendments to the Constitution are very rare, and require years to succeed. The American public is desperate today, and cannot wait for this urgently needed change. Thus the best interim remedy would be for each state and the U.S. Congress to legislate an 'Alternative Medicine Protection Act' to read as follows: ‘A practitioner of traditional or alternative medicine, registered by an appropriate government authority, who engages in medical or nutritional therapy or in any relevant health procedure, including the recommendation or sale of health supplements, that departs from orthodox or conventional medical treatment, shall not be found to be unqualified, unprofessional, negligent nor guilty of assault upon a patient, nor be denied the right to pursue her or his professional practice or livelihood, solely on the basis that the therapy employed is an alternative remedy, or is non traditional or departs prevailing orthodox medical treatment, unless it can be conclusively demonstrated that the therapy has a safety risk for a particular patient unreasonably greater than the traditional or prevailing treatment usually employed for the patient’s ailment.’”
Fact is, that the wording in the above-suggested constitutional amendment and legislation is irrelevant to the life-and-death importance of the point being made: deregulating the doctor-as- shaman/god medical profession culture is an infinitely wiser, fairer and more productive choice than the suicidal stupidity, unproductivity, and inherent unfairness of anti-choice, anti-individual- freedom socialized medicine a la OKenyan, Hillzilla and fellow Clintonista travelers.
United States v. Sprague, 282 U.S. 716, 733 (1931): "The Constitution was written to be understood by the voters; its words and phrases were used in their normal and ordinary as distinguished from technical meaning; where the intention in clear there is no room for construction and no excuse for interpolation or addition....The Tenth Amendment was intended to confirm the understanding of the people at the time the Constitution was adopted, that powers not granted to the United States were reserved to the states or to the people. It added nothing to the instrument as originally ratified...."
Compare the truth of Sprague and Hepburn v. Griswold 75 U.S. (8 Wallace) 606 (Feb 7, 1870) with the unarguably-provable-as revisionist history lies of M'Culloch v. Maryland, 17 U.S. (4 Wheaton) 316 (1819), Legal Tender Cases (Knox v. Lee, Parker v. Davis), 79 U.S. (12 Wallace) 457 (1870), and Juilliard v. Greenman, 110 U.S. 421 (1884) which cry out for a judicial reform amendment to settle the lawyers' anti-individual-freedom unconstitutional hash along with the doctors' equally anti-individual-freedom unconstitutional hash.
In addition to the issue of deregulating the medical profession and its gubmint-granted, money-motivated commercial monopoly over access to pain control, consider also the fact that the fraudulent and tyrannical, anti-individual-freedom "war on drugs," was invented by a bunch of self-anointed elitists primarily to control production-threatening behavior of the labor resources down on the Grand Globalists' plantation. Of course the intellectual fraud was sold under the deception-based slogan, "for the children." The so-called "war on drugs" has single-handedly destroyed the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. So-called "law enforcement" are now entirely free, without any fear of adverse consequences, to kick in your door and shoot 41 bullets into you because they thought the wallet you had in your hand was a gun. Or they might have even had the wrong address — no problem, tough bananas for you!
This totalitarian police-state paradigm is completely unacceptable, and completely unconsitutional under an "originalist" interpretation. And, contrary to the ad hominem sloganistic attacks by various wannabe-clever political manipulators, I say that not as a "druggie" but as a individual-freedom-loving, civil-libertarian teetotaler who believes that drugs are poison, not food. I am unalterably convinced that humans possess the inherent intelligence necessary to not need laws forbidding them to ingest poison. I am also firmly convinced that children can be taught the truth that drugs are poisons to be avoided at all costs. In reality, the so-called "war on drugs" has nothing to do with children, it's true purpose is economics-based: autocratic control over labor resources, thereby facilitating the theft of the hoi polloi's labor by the autocracy-minded cultural elites on a global macroeconomic level.
