Build Bigger and More Medical Facilities and They Will Come. The Medical continues to grow, to gain influence, to purchase friendly legislation, to expand and, like sheep our citizens line up at their doors, waiting to get in, waiting to get their medical fix.
Build more and bigger hospitals, clinics, imaging centers, medical laboratories, medical training facilities and prescription drug/chemical businesses and they will be used. Make more chemicals, drugs, prescriptions and they will be prescribed. It’s sort of like build it and they will come (remember the Field Of Dreams). My little corner of the world has a population of about 70,000 and the medical is well represented, "it is the biggest employer in the area", with many already new buildings and facilities. Here in Northwest Montana the Medical industry is big and powerful and is planning to grow even more. About $90,000,000 is being invested in medical growth, by adding more and larger buildings. Are they planning on an influx of even more sick people? The U.S. spends more $$$ per-capita on medical care than any other nation, but are we the healthiest (NO!)? Do you think that there may be something wrong with the medical being the largest and fastest growing industry? Shouldn’t it be downsizing because of all its wonderful successes, instead of growing because of its failures?
The Medical is a well-organized, prosperous, growth industry that invests about $700,000 daily, in the government, their government, to insure its importance and profitability. The medical also invests billion$ yearly in advertising and promotion, to convince you that you need them (an erroneous and popular belief). Medical doctors are well trained in the practice of medicine and the pharmaceutical industry invests billion$ in that training. Doctors know a lot about pharmaceutical drugs, medical procedures and most are well indoctrinated to follow the medical/pharmaceutical way of doing business. Most doctors see what they are doing as the only way and view alternative health care as an annoyance, to be discouraged.
The medical is a dream industry or a perfect money making machine. The promotion/advertising branch establishes the perceived need in the client/customer population, their government sponsors their activities, medical doctors diagnose the maladies and prescribe the medical procedures and drugs. And, the medical insurance industry branch (government and private) pays for the prescribed procedures and drugs, while WE pay for it ALL. Outstanding! Time to wake –up. Learn and use alternative forms of health care, your health will improve, your wallet will have more in it and they will have to seek other employment. “Health, Greed, Power-II”, at amazon.com Robert Brown
