The medical industry is based upon the premise that the people are ignorant of the fact that their body will heal itself in most cases with very
little and frequently no help, such as carpal tunnel surgery which is often performed to remedy it when in reality time off with rest and the
cessation of the repetitive movement that caused it will make it go away.
I know this from experience after being laid off from a job which caused carpal tunnel, the doctors wanted to do surgery which frequently causes the
disorder to be permanent if scar tissue is formed from the performing of the procedure which is caused by inflammation in the area of a nerve canal
or inflammation of surrounding tissues and muscles in the wrist, sometimes, believe it or not, it can be caused by inflammation from allergies.
The same as a mechanic telling someone who owns a car with a timing chain telling them they need their timing belt replaced, I caught a dealership
trying to take advantage of my mother this way once.
I really don't understand how people have become so greedy but it appears that it is simply taking advantage of ignorance much of the time which is
somehow thought to be a justifying factor for the greed, like people who invest in the stock market with no knowledge of the risk, your stockbroker
will be more than happy to exploit you, or drive like complete lunatics in their cars assuming those airbags and seatbelts will guarantee they live
through an accident that never should have happened.
The exploitation of the ignorance of people goes on in every business sector in existence, but should not be allowed when the services are required
for survival and the efficient function of society as a whole, whether people disagree with socialist policies or not they support them to a point and
they exist to different degree everywhere.
Here I go again with my whacky idea that those things people need to survive should be carefully controlled to guarantee at least the majority of or
EVERYONE can attain them, and that ain't by making them buy mandatory health insurance considering insurance simply increases the cost of
Insurance = Meddling Middle Men (who are there to be paid....).
Another problem here is how everything (business sectors and fields and specialties) are made to appear fragmented and compartmentalized and somehow
unrelated to one another when they are actually parts of the same whole, which justifies another complete bureaucracy and set of laws, just another
compartmentalization which looks to be profit driven once again.
....For the sake of Inefficiency....
Just my twisted little perspective from down here in the mud.
