Have you heard about Charlie Gard? If you read the Maim Scream Media, then no, but maybe read these two links I have read in the past 24 hours:
The latter said this:
“Worse yet, and an outrage that boggles the mind, is that the NHS refuses to release Charlie into the care of his parents. Charlie’s mother and father want to bring him to America for an experimental treatment that could help his body work more normally. They have even, through an appeal for charitable donations, raised enough money to bring their son here and get him treated. But the NHS has said it will not release the child, and every court has agreed.
This is the apotheosis of big government. The British state has become the Alpha and the Omega. It has nationalized a child and, implicitly, other children whom it might one day cut off from the love and care of their parents.
This is the logical conclusion of a single-payer “public” health system, a government deciding who is allowed to fight for his life or his child’s life, and who is not.”
This story should not only bother anyone with a healthy conscience, but terrify all who think that government inherently does what is right. It will come down to death panels, and pay attention to the shriekers who deny this. They are the ones who will be coming for you in the future, count on it.
Think about that above sentence copied: “…the NHS refuses to release Charlie into the care of his parents.”
Again, read up on the movie “John Q”:
It will happen, and happen here, sooner than one might think…
Addendum July 8 2017:
This should put the exclamation point on this story and my post:
“Yet that wasn’t their attitude a week ago, before the protests, the statements from President Trump and Pope Francis and the general global disgust that a purported place of healing would throw away a baby like so much used garbage solely because they had no idea how to treat him and didn’t want anyone else to treat him, either. This hospital under its socialized medicine regime was so cold-hearted that in addition to wanting to pull the plug on the child a week ago, it also refused to allow the baby’s parents to take their little one home to die with dignity. They really really wanted the baby to die in an icy institution instead. Under their ‘care’ of course.
It was even more morally repugnant because money was not an object in this case – the parents had raised money to get their baby treated in the states and there was a willing doctor who would try out a therapy that has helped children with similar genetic mutations, albeit not as severe. The very idea of trying the therapy on the baby with Gard’s condition had a sound theoretical rationale, and even if it had not worked, would yield medical knowledge that could save the next kid with the syndrome. Yet the London hospital had already made up its mind that the child was a vegetable with no feeling and yet curiously in pain, both rationales for their taking the power steps they did against the baby’s parents. There was also an Italian hospital that offered to take the baby and treat him with dignity which included simply promising to keep him alive as long as possible without pulling the plug.
Against these ameliorating factors, the London hospital didn’t particularly care at first. They must have spent thousands to arm themselves with court victories from Euro courts (run by Europeans from countries with long histories of genocide, assisted suicide, euthanasia, involuntary sterilization and eugenics) to ensure their legal ‘right’ to kill the baby. But the hard rule of courts was a complete failure compared to the photos of the baby’s devastated, grimly determined parents, which circled the globe. There is power in imagery and the images of these parents may have been the element that made the hospital realize it had a public relations problem and was about to go down in history as ‘that killer hospital.“
Yep, once in a while, the power of the Net and social discourse does in fact prevail in positive ways. Shame, humility, and sheer threat of ostracizing did work.
And why socialized medicine is just antisocialized agenda at the end of the day…
Fascinating how that term “socialized” or “socialist” really is just cloaked terminology for antisocial narratives and rhetoric. But, do people really understand that these days, no.
Hope your summer is going well………
