A truly free and open market

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.
