A poster to Bogus Dichotomy’s article that I re-blogged brought up something I’d like to expand upon here. I’m going to give you a brief lesson on one aspect of how the Insurance-Shyster-Pharmaco-Eager.Undereducated.Beavers-Medical complex works.
Having so-called nurse practitioners prescribing psychotropic drugs is another good example of insurance companies overseeing the dumbing-down of medicine in order to pad shyster/biz criminal wallets at the expense of the public. Do you know why antidepressants are “prescribed” at such outrageous rates? There are several reasons, but one of the biggest is that the Not-Suitably-Trained (the NST) have been “magically given” the ability to prescribe by Our Friends The Corporations & the NST just love doing it. Big Pharma could never convince doctors to do what these teeming armies of not-even-closers are more than happy to do.
By the way, for those who didn’t bother to read the decades-long memo, Big Pharma et al. are actually well on their way to abolishing Western medicine (as Europa fashioned it) for just this reason. It’s just so much easier to manipulate those who didn’t have the stamina, will, and/or brains to climb all the way up to the top of the damn mountain to do your corporate bidding than it is to bully dem der pesky doctors (who think we like, know more about medicine than shysters & business criminals). In fact, it takes no bullying at all to make the NST dance a corporate jig.
This is what the corruption of individuals looks like. They’ve been so thoroughly brainwashed by all-pervasive “egalitarianism” that they actually believe that they are “just like doctors,” especially when The Corporations keep prodding them on in their absurd “beliefs.” (By the way, this may also mean you. How did so many people get the idea that they know everything about everything without any kind of technical training, if it wasn’t from Big Brother (who knows just how to stoke that old ego of yours in all the right places).
This “culture” is so rife with delusional thinking & pandering to the lowest common denominator that my advice to the young’uns is to just go ahead & be a shyster or business criminal rather than to foolishly devote decades of your life to becoming real scientists or doctors. Not only do they not respect decades of service to humanity, Da Herd has been convinced that anyone who isn’t a Whiney Victim, Undereducated & Proud N’er-Do-Well and/or Self-Inflicted-Lesser-Than is not to be trusted.
When all the doctors have been banished & it’s down to the NSTs with various watered-down “degrees,” perhaps the nitwit public will ask Oprah to treat their children — who just happen to have cancer — gratis their good friends & brainwashers, The Corporations.
(For far more egregious examples of NSTs masquerading as doctors — this time in the K-12 public school system — while being allowed to use titles that they are as close to earning as any old person on the street — see Bogus Dichotomy’s articles: Number 1, Number 2).
