Understanding Doctors (and the Media)

You don't have to "respectfully" disagree with such doctors with these authoritarian attitudes -- but should run, not walk, as fast in the other direction when you see them coming, or they will tell you everything you need to be doing -- to help pay for their palatial waterfront estates and lifestyles they've grown accustomed to.

He even mischaracterizes what it means to buy an over-the-counter drug -- as though people have to fill out forms diagnosing themselves as having a clinical condition -- before buying a bottle of aspirin or allergy medication, that they just know works for themselves -- and not that most people are in the business or habit of labeling (diagnosing) themselves as such.  They just trust their senses to know what works for them -- and what doesn't, despite the doctor's insistence that it should -- or shouldn't.

But really, in this modern age, people need to find professionals and experts who they can trust as partners working for the benefit of the client, and not immediately assume a permanent relationship of doctor-patient, teacher-student, authority-subordinate -- by those who claim they know best about every aspect of life -- like the priest/authorities of the medieval ages that one had to respectfully agree in every case and matter.

Many people now are quite willing to assume responsibility for their own lives and fates -- from the food they eat, to the exercise they embrace, the politicians they vote for, the jobs they pursue, etc., without acquiescing to these authorities anointed by their own trade associations as the most ruthless self-serving spokespersons among them -- while the mainstream media runs interference for them, as the abuse of their own power and authority.

That's not the world we live in anymore -- where others have the right, authority and power to tell one how to live one's life in every aspect of their being and doing.

Not everyone has these Cadillac health plans where they can run to their doctors for unlimited billings and consultations to get their moneysworth from their health care plans, which such spokespersons would delight in noting to their patients, "Your coverage is so excellent that we can keep you in a persistent vegetative state forever."

Find those professionals that treat one as a partner, rather than those presuming you exist for their exclusive benefit and self-aggrandizement.  They're out there -- while the mainstream media, unfortunately exists now, to convince us of everything that is not true -- as their own losing grip, on the monopoly and power they once had.
