Medical Tyranny

By Atom Bergstrom

According to Alex Jones …

“If you’re ever going to have a world government — a corporate world government — the best way to do it is build it around medicine, because people tend to submit to medical tyranny.”

According to Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) …

“The wish to have a death of one’s own is growing even rarer. Only a while yet and it will be just as rare to have a death of one’s own as it is already to have a life of one’s own.”

Ivan Illich (Medical Nemesis, 1973, 1974) wrote …

“Our new image of death also befits the industrial ethos. The good death has irrevocably become that of the standard consumer of medical care. Just as at the turn of the century all men were defined as pupils, born into original stupidity and standing in need of eight years of schooling before they could enter productive life, today they are stamped from birth as patients who need all kinds of treatment if they want to lead life the right way. Just as compulsory educational consumption came to be used as a device to obviate concern about work, so medical consumption became a device to alleviate unhealthy work, dirty cities, and nerve-racking transportation. What need is there to worry about a murderous environment when doctors are industrially equipped to act as life-savers!”

According to the same source …

“Through the medicalization of death, health care has become a monolithic world religion whose tenets are taught in compulsory schools and whose ethical rules are applied to a bureaucratic restructuring of the environment: sex has become a subject in the syllabus and sharing one’s spoon is discouraged for the sake of hygiene. The struggle against death, which dominates the life-style of the rich, is translated by development agencies into a set of rules by which the poor of the earth shall be forced to conduct themselves.”
