There is no such thing as 'the health care industry'. There is only a Medical Industry.

Health care consists in caring for one's physical self in such a way as to maintain good health and avoid illness or injury for as long as possible before age has its way.

Some have observed there is no money to be made from dead people, other than the relative pittance for the funeral industry, and none to be had from healthy people. As they say, the profit is in between. And the profit to be had is enormous, and there is no shortage of scavengers to collect it. Like the floating body of a dead whale, surrounded by creatures large and small, nibbling and gnawing at any accessible area with larger ones taking the chunks their jaws enable them to tear away, while the smaller ones feast on the scraps. The smell of death and decay troubles them not at all. And their hunger is never satisfied.

The vulnerable population of a developed and prosperous society provides a vast herd of hosts for the parasites of the Medical Industry. And they do not hesitate to create customers, whether by using advertising to create fear in the population to drive them to the doctors and pharmaceutical providers, or conspiring with the government to create medical 'emergencies'. But those matters require a separate examination.

In this case we look at the little parasites and scavengers, the ones who operate medical facilities and provide the supplies and services to operate them. Like their animal counterparts they are nothing more than eating machines, blind and unreasoning, consuming as much as they can of whatever is available.


Because it is there and they are what they are. In the animal world such organisms are described as opportunistic feeders.

But how do human beings become as them?

To paraphrase Sir Isaac Newton 'I can calculate the movement of the stars, but not the evil of men.'
