WHAT SHOULD BE PRIORITY #1 & #2 IN ANY NATION?

Priority number 1 in anyone’s life is one’s health so a healthy organic food supply is priority number 1.

Grow organic food and there will be less pollution from artificial chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, growth hormones, antibiotics, unnatural fertilizers, and GMO’s with manufactured resistance to unnatural quantities of herbicides and pest resistance which also is often poisonous to pollinating bees.

Who is making some of the biggest profits? It is the pharmaceutical companies and medical profession making big profits at the declining health in the nation. Statistically cancer is on the rise throughout the population and drug companies are advertising artificial chemical pills with hair raising side effects which need more pills to treat the bad side effects. The medical profession seems more interested in prescription renewals and comeback customers than in actually curing what ails you.

For cash you can get an MRI for about $300 and if you have insurance the cost can be as high as $1200 or about 4 times more. Yes, medical insurance private or funded by the government is a big money making enterprise often at taxpayer’s expense. The difference in brand name versus generic medicine is often a markup of as high as 1000% or ten times more costly.

Statistically only about 10% of the population is pill free and many seniors are on 10 to 20 pills a day which is just accelerating their demise and sending medical costs through the roof.

I am reluctant to mention the opioid crisis but this is just symptomatic of a legal pill for every problem philosophy whether mental or physical. Mental illness, especially depression, is treated with legal feel good drugs rather than addressing the real problem which is a dysfunctional lifestyle with crappy food intake. Pop a pill and go back to your dysfunctional lifestyle and crappy food is not a cure but merely temporarily masks the symptoms which will get worse once the side effects of the pill kick in.

Priority number 2 is not so obvious to most but it is the conservation and even expansion of wilderness and wildlife because that will be the only safety net for healthy food when the irresponsible technological manipulation of the domestic food supply makes it poisonous for human consumption in the long and even short duration.

Nature knows best in the long duration and if you screw too much and too long  with nature with pollution, artificial insemination, toxic chemicals, and untested long term GMO’s, etc. then you pay the ultimate penalty which is unhealth and death.

Ask and start counting how many of your relatives, friends, and acquaintances have some health issues? The answer to this question once you start counting is shocking to most.

So start eating as much organic food as possible, get some exercise, sleep well and contribute to an international and national conservation organization. It may not do much to improve the world but you will feel healthier and you will live with a clear conscience knowing that you tried to save wilderness for future generations who may just need it desperately to survive.

BIG MONEY AND THE PROBLEM WITH BIG IN GENERAL!!!

Big international banking is probably why the danger of  World War 3 is highly unlikely since the world is so economically interdependent and no major nation wants a physical war nor much less an all out cyber war designed to incapacitate a major economic nation in the world. Yes, if the total military system of a nation is neutralized or totally incapacitated with cyber attacks then blackmail is a distinct possibility but I doubt that it would lead to a physical world war. There is a war on to try and control your mind with socialist and communist propaganda internationally but this will take a few generations to achieve unless big internet tech is determined to make it happen sooner.

That said bigness in general has many drawbacks since monopoly or big business size has a tendency to corrupt an organizational structure and any products or information which it may choose to disseminate or sell to customers. Quality service, quality products, and quality information suffers whenever something gets too big.

The big food business or monoculture big agribusiness in general is largely producing cheap food and polluting and losing the topsoil which it is so heavily dependent on. The soil is being poisoned by artificial fertilizers, artificial pesticides and herbicides, questionable GMO’s, and the topsoil is decreasing with each passing year. Big factory farming is producing too many livestock with unnatural doses of antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified livestock which no longer reproduce the natural way but do so only with artificial insemination.

Over processing of limited biodiverse produce and adding too much sugar, preservatives, color, and artificial chemicals is further degrading the quality of the food and drink. If the old adage that you are what you eat is true then the bad quality of limited fast food and food and drink in general is causing severe health problems for most of the humans in a nation.

Going organic is a smart move but when big corporations take over companies such as Whole Foods which was promising to go organic then organic food struggles. When Aldi supermarkets get too numerous they no longer have an incentive to sell organic produce at the accelerating rate which theoretically would be a good thing. Bigness frankly sucks. Bigness slows down organic innovation and decelerates the pace of needed change in the food and drink business towards higher quality or nutrient value.

Bad health has resulted in big medicine creating artificial drugs which treat the symptoms of an illness but don’t cure it guaranteeing permanent addicted customers. Just listen to the side effects of drugs advertised on TV. The side effects are worse than the symptoms and the possible consequences are the medical conditions which the drugs claim to obscure but not cure.

Over prescription of pain killers, opioids, mood enhancing drugs, anti psychotic drugs, antibiotics, and pills in general has made the majority of Americans dependent on medication of some kind and the number taking 5 or more pills is accelerating, especially among the elderly. Big medicine, high insurance, and medical malpractice suits are causing much disillusionment in the profession. Fewer and fewer humans are choosing  to enter the medical profession and fewer and fewer humans believe that doctors are trying to cure them but are just cynically considering them as a source for renewed prescriptions and income.

Big internet tech companies are the next great source for future lousy information and excessive censorship of ideas and news. Fake news and fake information has made the public lose trust in what they are getting from the media and internet tech companies. Almost all attempts at regaining this trust seem to be colossal failures. Once trust is lost it can take decades or lifetimes to get the trust back.

How do you censor moral free speech from fake and immoral free speech with an algorithm which is just to all law abiding humans? It is mission impossible and the only way out is to patronize smaller internet websites whose mission is clearly stated and worthwhile enough to be financially supported by a trusting readership.

Internet censorship is just one step away from a tyrannical big government with basically one party or two parties that have one and the same philosophy. Many have already complained that there is no difference in the Republican or the Democratic establishment parties. The rich get richer, the middle class is dying fast, the welfare class grows, and the average working citizen is being largely ignored by the politicians.

Many special interest laws have been passed with so many that Congress no longer can pass understandable plain English laws which mean what they say on paper. There are so many vague laws passed which rely upon the bureaucracy interpreting the laws and actually enforcing them via the legal system. Bureaucratic bias is rampant and small businesses who can’t afford an expensive lawyer to explain the laws are at a considerable disadvantage.

Big money power and bigness in general is oppressing the individual and any rights that he or she may still have by law in the constitution. Humans are being royally fucked by big money, a big economy, big medicine, big food or farming, big education, big information, and a big government system. It seems things will only get worse with the passage of time. If you are smart then you will patronize organic food, minimal medicine or minimal usage of drugs both legal and illegal, promote useful education, promote small businesses, and try to pass on your morality to your offspring if you decide to have any offspring.

The problem with big lifeforms is that they are usually too big, too slow, too inefficient, and too stupid to survive in the long duration once they have devoured all the medium sized and little lifeforms. Yes, decentralization is a possible alternative for bigness not becoming extinct but promoting small businesses is the ultimate antidote to a big or huge corrupted dying organism.

Globalism is a money tyranny trying to impose its will on the world and it is basically tyrannical in nature. Globalism has a tyrannical ideology which seeks to impose uniformity of obedient thought on the world and destroy any democracies in the process. Rumblings of nationalism have surfaced and is a weak rebellion against one ideological global tyranny. The European Union is not working out very well any more and without political unity there is little hope for long term continued economic unity.

It is true that if you control the money supply of the world then you really shouldn’t care what political system is running a nation but unfortunately big money leads inevitably to coercive tyrannical tactics and that ultimately means that all the nations of the world will eventually be led by tyrants.

A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH MEDICINE, ESPECIALLY MEDICATIONS!!!

One of the biggest dangers in medicine is the shoddy way that clinical trials are done and the fact that almost all positive results are published and most negative results are censored or not published at all.

The result is that many new drugs are not only often useless but plagued with many undesirable side effects. All that you have to do is listen to the dangerous side effects advertised on television commercials for new drugs which range all the way from harmful effects on blood balance and harmful effects organs such as the kidneys, liver, pancreas, etc. to possible consequences such as heart failure, cancer, and even death.

Criminal is the only way to describe the research by private drug companies and certification of drugs by the FDA or government. This ted.com video should send chills down your spine so try to view the link in it’s entirety.

The best advice is to stay away from modern pills if it is not a question of life or death because the side effects are often worse than the symptoms which you are trying to mask and not cure.

TRANSPARENCY IN MEDICINE IS VITAL TO REESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN PATIENT TRUST!!!

82212

Transparency or a truthful relationship of doctor and patient is essential to maintain trust in the doctor patient relationship.

Leana Wen on ted.com argues for an honest disclosure of potential conflicts of interest of doctors who are on the payroll list of powerful drug companies whose drugs they use and promote.

My personal opinion is that doctors are not perfect Gods who don’t make mistakes and there is good reason to ask doctors to disclose their mistakes to the public on the internet. This is so that their mistake rate is public knowledge and perhaps only after the same mistake is repeated more than three times should the doctor be under the potential for a valid medical malpractice suit.

There is currently too much fear in the doctor patient relationship on both sides because trust has severely eroded and it is time to reestablish it as much as possible with the truth and dealing head on with human or doctor fallibility.

OBAMACARE CAN BE FIXED BUT IT WILL TAKE MUCH TIME AND EFFORT TO DO IT LOGICALLY AND JUSTLY!!!!!!

obamacare

Obamacare is a perfect example of an illogical unjust law in its present form. True justice for all the citizens would be that the healthy should pay some money towards future health problems but at the same time should be rewarded by paying less if they are smart and remain healthy throughout most of their lives. Those with preexisting conditions and the unhealthy with many trips to the doctor’s office should be paying more into the healthcare system during their working years in anticipation of greater health care costs later in life. Those who are unemployed and destitute should be given free health care for emergency health situations and minimal care for other standard illnesses, especially the contagious ones.

This means that the government will have to have the medical records of all its citizens so that it can evaluate who are the healthy and sicker ones within the society and tax them accordingly during their lifetime. Government controlled health care which is just and has sliding rate medical taxes which reward the healthy and penalizes the unhealthy with higher premiums or taxes is a just system of health care and not the one size fits all citizens or egalitarian socialized medicine.

The computer software for a just sliding scale medical coverage is highly complex but it can be done given enough preparation time and enough reliable data inputted so that the software can make just logical decisions as to who pays and how much. Obamacare is a fixable program but it will take years to make it a just program of medical care for all.
