    The small minded, cowardly , stupid swine always love to stick the knife in someone's back especially when they are weak and unable to defend themselves...

    Just waiting for the day when the entire medical profession is *destroyed*, burned down to the bedrock, only way it can be fixed is a total purge (ie, forcible disbanding of the BMA, criminal investigation of many senior MDs, murder sentences for pharma corps and any docs linked ot pushing their deadly drugs which they covered up the safety issues for, etc).

    I think I agree with SilverBlade that the whole profession will have to go--the only realistic chance I see is that it will self-destruct--the whole Western world is getting so totally crazy that something will have to give catastrophically--maybe the NRA's proposal to place armed police in every school will be the turning point, or maybe enough idiots will buy that the system will continue a while longer...who knows. In the meantime, Happy Holidays, and a better New Year to all. Chris

    And this is representative of the so-called leftist 'intellligentsia'?

    I don't know that we need to destroy the medical profession .... but one section of my book, and a blog I have yet to post, is aimed at how to rebalance power structures involving the medical profession. There is no proper balance of power, they are substantially unaccountable, they are privileged under law, and by creating institutions like NICE the primary power structure that regulates them is a bureaucracy. We have to stop thinking of the medical profession as a rational scientific and entirely beneficent system ... thats the ideal but in this age they fall woefully short.

    Similar arguments can be made about NICE, medical insurance, big pharma etc.

    Our mechanisms for balancing power were made in another age, an age in which we believed in the primacy of reason, an age in which most of the issues and problems we are facing not only did not exist, but nobody even had the capacity to more than vaguely foreshadow the problems.

    Seasons Greetings to All, Alex.

    Some of you wont get this, but I have been watching a lot of How I Met Your Mother. Surely its better to be a duck than a rabbit?
