Why is Health Care so expensive?

repeal & replace

The Original Oath of Hippocrates said:

I swear by Apollo. . . (the Gods & the Healers), making them my witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.
To hold my teacher in this art equal to my own parents; to make him partner in my livelihood; when he is in need of money to share mine with him; to consider his family as my own brothers, and to teach them this art, if they want to learn it, without fee or indenture. . . (More Here)

It continues to say that they will help the sick. While the above portion mentions a detachment to money, healing the sick doesn’t mention anything about being for the purpose of money or for profit.

Duncker’s candle problem was a Psychological Cognitive test in which candidates were given a candle, a box of Matches, a box of thumbtacks, & asked to attach the candle to the wall without any instruction. Half of the students were offered a monetary incentive upon the successful completion of the task. The one’s incentivized by money solved the problem noticeably slower in test after test.

I am an advocate of Capitalism because you can only offer charity out of a surplus and the only way to create a surplus is through a Rational Business relationship in which you presuppose a Meritocracy of Results. I will demonstrate however, that money is not always a beneficial or even desirable incentive in the Medical Industry.

Hostage Patient, Hostage Student

The vast majority of money is earned in the final stages of a person’s life regardless of age. The Medical Industry knows this and the more cunning & less moral take advantage of the vulnerable emotional state of the family & patient in order to extract the MAXIMUM amount of Profit. This is both unethical and unconscionable.

The best doctor is always going to be the one strongest motivated to cure the disease. I myself have been the victim of medical malpractice when I had a Mooslem dentist intent on getting the maximum amount of money from my insurance by claiming that I had 12 cavities. Not only did half the fillings immediately fall out I have jaw issues to this day because of his roughness with me when I was unconscious. It wasn’t until I went to a real dentist that I was informed he had permanently shortened the life of my dental health.

How many people go into Medicine because of the amount of money they want to make instead of the number of people they want to help and the suffering they want to eliminate from the world?

The problem is compounded by our Educational System. When you factor our ranking in the World as 38th with the fact that we pay more than anybody else for education you realize that. . . the student thinks to himself

“…the American Educational System, Monopolized by Liberal Teacher Unions is more interested in Indoctrinating children into their issues than educating them in Knowledge, Skill, or the ability to Think & do Science for themselves.”

The student thinks to himself, “I can make more money if I become a Doctor or Nurse.”

The College thinks to themselves, “The perceived value of an in education in Medicine is Higher because they make more money in that field so we can increase the cost of that education. The motivation of the student will overcome the obstacle of the cost.”

So, as we all see, even if a properly motivated person went into the field, & passed the tests, they would be enslaved by Greater College debt & Constantly distracted by the sword of Damocles dangling over his head.

“The strongest force in the Universe is Compound Interest.” ~Albert Einstein

I encourage the Trump Administration to remove the Improper Incentives, to Implore people in the Medical Industry to exert an influence on themselves not to be Motivated by Mammon, to Force the Education Monopoly to compete with Charter Schools, & to compel American Pharmaceutical companies to compete with Canadians & possibly other countries of comparable quality.

Lastly, I recommend that he have Doctors without borders to go into the Veteran’s Hospitals and observe over the course of a month and bring back a list of observations & suggestions for improving the care of Veterans from top to bottom.

Open Letter to Betsy Devos

When I was 16 I started studying Mnemonics. I read every book I could find on the subject and I practiced them until I had a migraine. I dreamed about one day revolutionizing education by creating memory pegs that make things harder to forget than to remember. More recently I studied every logical fallacy and cognitive bias and read everything I could on cognitive psychology. I studied the newest psychological sciences.

I created Shared State Law of Communication. To give you an example that Letter “A” means the same to me as it does to you because we shared similar states of education. The word cat means the same to me as it does to you because we shared the same “States”. It creates a medium through which we can communicate and relate to one another. Because of these Shared States we can communicate ideas to one another.

I think that we should have the best teachers with the best results on teaching certain subjects collaborate and create videos that teach the subject that they specialize in. I think these videos should be online in a single website. I think they should be made available to everybody regardless of age. I think that Charter Schools should be allowed to use them. I think that Home Schooled should be allowed to use them. I think that States should have the right to determine if their schools will participate and to what degree they will participate. If the states refuse to participate, I think parents and charter schools should have the Authority to over ride the State. I think that people should be able to determine if they want their scores to be public or not.

This would allow children to compete with each other on the National Level. It would prevent Older Illegal Immigrants from having to be in the same classroom with people much younger than themselves. It would prevent teachers from indoctrinating children and it would allow a transparency into exactly what our children are being taught.

I downloaded entire semesters of college classes from iTunes University. You would be amazed what I learned from the Audio alone. Some children actually like to learn and they have a learning fetish. These children will seek each other out and compete with each other to their Mutual Benefit. Why aren’t we BENCHMARKING Best Practices in Teaching??? Ask Donald what that word means in Business Philosophy.

Two teachers can teach the exact same subject matter but one of the teachers can be turning children off with their attitude. One teacher can be Telegraphing to children that the subject matter is boring or uninteresting through the tone of their voice or their body language. The other teacher communicates that the subject matter is interesting and fun.

Oh, and one more thing. Every school should teach civics and you should coordinate with Professor Richard Dreyfuss on the best way to go about that. I am also of the opinion that children should be exposed to elements of Logic in Rational Debate and Psychology at much younger ages. If children knew how to recognize irrational behavior they would grow up making better choices in their relationships and knowing how to recognize irrational behavior. I think that principles of using the Abacus should be taught at a young age. The reason for this is that China produced more math geniuses per capita by far than most other Nations. It is said that when people grow up using the Abacus they can visualize it in their heads and work out complex mathematical formula without the help of calculators.

The Problem with H1b Visas.

visa-travel_us

More than 100 technology companies including Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft, oppose Donald Trump’s Travel Ban. Why? Because H1B visas are basically a form of Low Wage Slavery. People who come in on H1b visas agree to work for low wages for several years without renegotiating their contracts. They compete with Americans for jobs. Not only do the corporations not have to pay extra for the schooling and experience of American Citizens, they also don’t have to pay for the Cost of Living of Americans. This means that our educational systems don’t have to be competitive because other countries provide better education at a lower price than our crappy Liberal Teacher’s Unions. This also counter-incentivizes getting extra education in the United States knowing that Corporations would rather hire foreigners.

Trump isn’t doing anything bad by setting things right in favor of Americans but that is the way the press & corporations will spin it. It was Obama that secretly prioritized the hiring of Foreigners over Americans. That was the first action & the cause of the bad. The collusion between Greedy, Crony Capitalists to accrue all benefit to themselves and sell the American People down the river.

What is to prevent Chinese Immigrants on H1B visas from stealing trade secrets or technology? They have already done it. They are already doing it. America used to make the best steel in the world. We spent millions of dollars on research in order to create the best techniques for the strongest steel and Chinese hackers stole all of that knowledge so that they could compete with us on the Global Market and even in the United States.

Ritual Magic & College Antics

nope

The occult is essentially psychology that you don’t know.  Modern psychology is catching up with the occult.  Some people are wondering why Obama keeps hiring Behavioral Psychologists.  Partly it’s because he is trying to wag the dog.

The Hidden Hand

Obama is very well connected behind the scenes.  He is directly associated with the antics of students on college campuses and their demands. One of the demands that black students are making is for a “safe space” room in the faculty building.  Many of their demands are ridiculous while insisting that they are rational.  They are already in a manic, histrionic state when they are making their exaggerated demands showing that they will become even more abusive if their insanity isn’t taken seriously.  There is no way that the demands can be accepted without incriminating oneself because to accept such childish demands would also demonstrate guilt.  This shows me that the manipulation and appeal to the feminine bias and instinct of the left is not accidental, it is conscious, deliberate, and willful on the part of the Obama Regime, they know exactly what they are doing.  Also if these demands are accepted it will make it impossible to change them at a future time and it leaves not defensive ground to stand on in any future conflict between faculty and students, and remember it was the students that started the conflict.  The Liberally biased teachers were catering to the whims of the minorities before this.

So what’s really going on?

Let’s go back to the demand that I originally stated, to have a safe space inside the faculty building.  Now one of the concepts I came up with in my psychological models is that there are different ways of encoding data.  I found when I was deconstructing actions in order to see how they create value for people that some forms of strategic behavior were used in order to communicate certain things to certain people.  I am going to go off on a tangent right now and tell you a little story.

You say “Tomato” I say Organic Tomato

I worked at Whole Foods Market for 12 years, so I know what I am talking about.  If you examine the rules governing Organic produce, about the segregation what you realize is that this ritual communicates data to the human being (Organic Computer).  If a organic produce comingles with Non-organic produce it is no longer organic.  Organic produce has to be stored above conventional produce.  This reifies in the psyche of the individual through the use of rituals that Organic is something real, good, and desirable.  People actually feel good about themselves because of eating organic food, they have a psychosomatic, placebo response, but people don’t necessary know exactly what organic means.  I once heard an employee say, “Everything in the store is kind of Organic.”  No, it’s not.  Organic is something very specific, there is even a rule about not labeling foods with percentages of Organic because it is considered confusing.

So while the innate goodness of Organic food has been reified in the psyche of the employee and customer, what if the actual standards of Organic foods are declining?  One of the things I found the most ridiculous is that for a period of time Salts and some waters were paying to get certified as organic and the organic certifiers were giving them certification.  While it is not part of the Organic standards the word “Organic” suggests that you are talking about something living and growing not water or a mineral deposit.  In order to save money many stores, (especially Whole Foods) is buying their produce from China, which is a highly polluted environment, the air itself can be cut with a knife, literally.  How is that organic?  1st generation Chinese people were the most insistent and vigilant about not purchasing any organic produce that came from China and yet more and more Organic Produce is being purchased from China as the cost increases.

In much the same way McDonald’s increases the perceived value of their food by extra packaging.  The unwrapping of their terrible food-flavored product that doesn’t rot and no animal or insect will eat, is a ritual that builds anticipation in the person who is about to get constipated because they are eating 3 pieces of bread and meat laden with Pink Slime which is laced with Ammonia in order to kill off any E.coli one might get from eating beef that was tainted with cow feces.  It is the power of ritual.  When I do my photo shops and I use different fonts, colors, layers, and borders that also has a ritualizing effect for the eyes as the person pores over the images I altered in order to convey something to them.

So, what is being communicated by the strategic demands of the college students?  If you allow them to have their “safe space” in the faculty building, you will essentially be granting them status as faculty.  The people that will avail themselves the most of the “Safe Space” will be the lowest common denominator, the most histrionic people who are attacking people with their issues, they will look for any excuse to use the room and get their way in every way at every moment.  The room itself is a shrine to their issues that reifies the realness their issues.  It is an assault on Western Education.  Why do you think saying “Meritocracy” is now a micro aggression?  Why do you think Obama is attempting to get rid of standardized testing?    It is a tacit equivocation between success and failure, between intelligence and stupidity.  How do we really know who is smart and who is dumb?  How do we really know what is good and evil?   How do we know who is a terrorist and who a freedom fighter?  It is arguing for vagueness.  The Liberal Progressives want a stupid, docile, slave class that depends on the Government to do all of their thinking for them, like a toxic mother figure with Munchausen syndrome by proxy.  It is a toxic relationship between the stupid majority and the corrupt and lazy oligarchical ruling class.  click here for a link to Plato’s 5 regimes.
