While some Canadians bask in the afterglow of the Olympic victories in Vancouver and they congratulate themselves on Canadian greatness, I have misgivings. The Prime Minister is going to spend billions more on élite athletes to insure Canada wins more Olympic medals so our greatness can be reaffirmed in future Olympics. It is more "bread and circuses" for the chumps.
Why doesn't the Prime Minister do something about the deplorable Canadian medical system? He is doing that, you say? Oh right, he's going to pour billions more down the medical rat hole to continue feeding its inhabitants. They are some of Canada's fattest rodents. They do resemble beavers, Canada's national rodent, so why not? Here's why not:
Canadian doctors have enjoyed blind public admiration and trust for a century. But that was not enough for the Canadian Medical Association. Based on a premise which arrogates the law to itself, organized medicine in Canada (the CMA and its creature the CMPA) sought to "protect" physicians from the law. Canadian medicine uses every excuse in the book to cover up its failures. It has its hand in the public pocket. It writes laws to protect itself. Records are lost. Its members lie. Patients are tortured, maimed and killed. It feeds the public with incessant propaganda. It works hand-in-glove with the pharmaceutical industry with its increasingly dangerous nostrums. The Canadian medical system is a scandal and its days are numbered. The Canadian medical system is the medical paradigm which emerged and took over at the end of the 19th century. Established medicine has taken decades to grow into the monster we see today. To Hell with them. Something better — medicine that works and puts patients first — is emerging at the dawn of the 21st century.
Canadian greatness lies in a different direction than the one in which Canada has been headed. Greatness embraces every Canadian — just as advertised — not merely the small self-satisfied Canadian élite which is fed by government at everyone else's expense.
