A truly free and open market

A truly free and open market

by Jon Rappoport

October 2, 2017

As an example, take modern medicine.

I’m not simply talking about health insurance companies competing for your dollar in a free market. Nor am I only talking about your ability to choose your own doctor.

I’m talking about health practitioners of every stripe free to care for patients, as long as they don’t use remedies that are more harmful than the standard allopathic modalities, for any given condition.

If you’ve been reading my work exposing, citation by citation, the destruction modern medicine wreaks on the population, you know natural practitioners can operate without danger of overstepping that boundary.

And if that were the case? If we were living in such a free and open health economy?

For one thing, independent research would be stimulated to the hilt. For another thing, alternative practitioners would mightily expand their territory. Patient choice would rule the day.

With practitioners no longer looking over their shoulders to watch what the government and medical boards are doing, we would have fair competition.

Let the patient chose his own method of managing his health.

Of course, that would shift responsibility from the State to the individual. There is nothing the State fears more than many, many individuals willing to step up to the plate on that score.

The State wants utter dependence and surrender, and nowhere is this more clearly spelled out than in the medical arena.

If the FDA approves a drug as safe and effective, no one will ever go to prison if the drug winds killing thousands of people. Indeed, the passive patient, relying on the FDA (government) for wisdom, will absorb the full force of the drug’s devastating impact. But no matter: the patient will have discharged his duty to the State. He has behaved correctly. His family can say that (and some families do) as he is lowered into his grave.

In a free and open health economy, one province or several provinces will take the lead. They will open their doors wide to natural practitioners, who will move in and set up shop. Many, many patients will follow, and suddenly that province’s economy will experience a sharp upturn. And the people (patients) who relocate to that province will be of high caliber, because they are willing to take responsibility for their own health choices.

Such people have already evaluated standard allopathic medicine. They have seen that the State’s seal of approval is no guarantee of protection from harm. Not by a long shot.

Such people understand there is a certain amount of risk in taking charge of their own health. They are willing to take the risk. And if, on occasion, they want to rely on a standard MD, they are willing to take that risk, too.

The State does everything it can to drop a curtain between questioning medical authority and choosing to defect from medical authority.

Regardless, over the past 50 years, we have seen an unprecedented explosion of natural health activity in the culture. This mirrors the rise of the individual.

This is, by and large, a positive development, despite so-called science experts pointing out a case here and there where, it is claimed, a patient should have consulted with a standard MD, and failing to do so cost him his life.

Every year in the US, the medical system kills 225,000 people and maims millions more. (B. Starfield, JAMA, July 26, 2000, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”)

These experts avoid that review and other supporting studies like the plague.

As well they should.

They want compliance. They want monopoly. They want the illusion of fantastic success. They want the individual to render up his health and life for adjudication before the totalitarian bar of decision.

This republic was not founded on that principle.

Therefore, the citizenry must be taught to forget there was a republic.

Coincidentally, the drugs help by inducing amnesia.

Nevertheless, millions of people are waking up.

  1. People often mistake our system of cronyism for capitalism.

  2. tomlewis20 says:

    with what Marks is describing chaos would ensue and the the real solution could be implemented by the strong central government choosing what you will do. Thesis. Antithesis. Synthesis.

  3. brusplace says:

    Yes, we must strive for a free and open market. One question is, will the people in general care to get that involved?

  4. There was a time not long ago when the natural practitioners were being killed for their profession .. er, um, under mysterious reasons.

  5. James Freeman says:

    Spot on Jon.
    Dr. Benjamin Rush was on the right track when he had the opinion that “Medical Freedom”, needs to be a right on the constitution!

    I am an 85 year old man that has not been to see a doctor or had a medical prescription in over 35 years, therefore have saved a ton of money by not having t buy any health insurance I all these years.

    God has given the animals and humans what we need for good health, nature, in the form of herbalism, clean fresh air and water (if you can find it), and organic food, and stay away from poison’s such as fluoride (a by-product of aluminum), one example of what your protective government is trying to convince you
    that it’s good for your health.
    There is so much evil from the very people that would never lie to us.

  6. Terri says:

    Western medical priests and the drug pushing pharmaceutical manufacturers know if medicine was a true free market, they would go out of business because people would be able to discover real results from real practitioners; those who practice natural medicine and understand what vibrant health really is..

    I would suggest you could have stopped at “your dollar” and continued with a very different article. Until you lance the boil and expose the poison, I’m afraid the rest is window dressing; symptoms of “unknown causes”.

    I don’t understand why in the USA people still consider medicine as a commodity, I live in Canada and had 2 liver transplants and everything by free, if this would happened in the USA I would be dead or homeless, almost every developed country has a similar system where everybody is covered, is our system perfect? Of course not but in general much better in terms of coverage and fairness, doesn’t matter if you are poor or rich. ON top our system costs much less per inhabitant than yours, how is possible that a country that spent so much money on wars and social control is not able to provide a decent health care system for their own people?, are you so brainwashed? Sorry to say it but because I admire the USA for many achievements but a fair health coverage is a basic human right and many people seem to believe that hat it should be a business.

    • How is health care a human right? Certainly you can lambaste the system and I completely agree with those points but attributing that industry to a human right, I miss how that works in a system that bases everything on some monetary value – which I feel is the very foundation of what is wrong in this world.

      • ANdres says:

        How is healthcare a human right?, ideally in a healthy society we should care for each other, why are we providing free education? In reality nothing is “free” but paid with our taxes, in theory we have free education because as a society we would like to have an educated population that eventually will benefit all of us economically, socially,etc.etc. I believe that people understand or at least in many societies that having access to free education is a human right. We can discuss about the quality of education but this would be another topic due to the complexity of the issue.
        I believe that with healthcare the same principle applies, at least is a value accepted in the majority of developed countries, of course prevention should be the first step of any healthcare system but once people are sick society should take care of them without letting nobody behind, eventually everything depends on our values therefore many could disagree. Do we want a humanitarian society or do we want everyone on his own? It depends on what we define what is a human right? Therefore in the majority of developed societies a healthcare system that is paid with our taxes is accepted as a human right. ANd if we look at statistics the states spent much more money in healthcare per inhabitant than other developed nations yet the results are not as good in comparison.

          Regardless of what big ideals and utopian dreams you add to something, compulsory acts do not constitute a human right. In the US there is compulsory education and health insurance (and many other things contrary to the ‘land of the free’ misnomer) but as is evident from both industries they are failing miserably with billions in dollars in taxes already thrown down those drains.

          Our society is geared where everything has a value and we need to toil till our end days to survive it. Human nature is such that greed and looking out for ‘you and yours’ is the most important care. These things need to be changed before pie in the sky dreams like you suggested could be reasonably discussed.

          • ANdres says:

            We could agree, but something great tragedies or events produce changes in the less expected manner, so we never know and many things can happen.

    • NaturalWoman says:

      Why not go to someone who can heal your own liver? I’ve seen this happen, it can be done. Instead, you’ve twice subjected yourself to a very harmful outrageously expensive surgery at others people’s expense, getting another liver that has you don’t know what kind of issues.

  9. greg says:

    The corrupt NHMRC is doing what it can to prevent access to natural therapies in Australia, by producing a ludicrous report that claims that none of the 17 therapies looked at are effective.
    https://www.yourhealthyourchoice.com.au/news-features/living-now-magazine-fighting-to-protect-healthcare-rights/
    The same morons also produced reports ignoring wind turbine syndrome and harm from fluoride. Are they evil or just plain stupid?
