Progressivism/liberalism/socialism/fascism/monarchy/oligarchy/dictatorship and other forms of statism are based on the idea that normal people are incapable of handling their own affairs.

They all assume that

(1) there is an elite group of enlightened people who can manage things,

(2) these enlightened despots will not be the same ones who screw up the private organizations that they deem to be the problem in need of fixing,

(3) these will be the people actually put into the positions of authority, and

(4) bureaucrats will be hired to administer the enlightened elite’s dictates.

Unfortunately, that theory quits thinking just before the point where it is clear that

(5) the positions of authority cannot always be filled by the necessary enlightened elite, and

(6) the bureaucrats hired to handle other people’s affairs will be normal people who are incapable of handling their own affairs.

Bureaucrats do not serve the people — they serve the bureaucracy.

From a Doctor Who Will Not Comply


"An M.D. in family practice passed along this letter she sent to her patients after Obamacare became law. She relates that, so far, "100% of those who have contacted me about it have supported me and accepted the new conditions."

My Dear Patient,

As you must know, Congress has just passed extensive legislation governing health care delivery and insurance systems. Whether you agree with what it does or not, we are all now subject to this law and its sweeping changes.

I have always conducted my medical practice with my patient’s best interests as my first priority. Although not legally obliged to do so, I have routinely provided you with a receipt that has all the codes necessary to bill your own health insurance company for any reimbursement to which you are entitled. Until now, that insurance company was a free enterprise despite the fact that it was heavily regulated by state and federal laws. Now the situation is quite different. Through the new law’s mandates, regulatory powers and reform, health insurance is and will be largely a government activity which will have an ever larger jurisdiction over how doctors practice, make clinical judgments and are paid.

The new law provides for about 150 new government agencies, many of which are designed to be ‘oversight’ bureaucracies which will have the right to decide what medical care is legal to provide through insurance. Among other things, they will have the right to review my medical care of you and read your medical record. Now, as soon as you submit our economic transaction to your insurance company for reimbursement, you have involved me in these regulations and put me in the jurisdiction of government for my activities, decisions and behavior as your doctor.

No one can have two masters. Either I can serve you as my patient or I can serve the government. Either I can continue to make your welfare and health my only concern, including the protection of your privacy and medical records, or I can abide by ever-increasing amounts of government regulations and dictates to my decisions. I can’t do both. I choose to continue to follow my conscience and practice medicine to serve you.

For this reason, I am responding to the situation created by this new law by exercising my right not to participate in any health insurance program. I will still provide you with the same medical services that I always have, but the interaction will be exclusively and privately between you and me. This means that I will provide you only with a receipt for the services you have paid for, but without the additional information that is required to submit your receipt for reimbursement to your health insurance company. That is the only way I can make sure there will be no conflict between following the law and serving you. Because the law is now in effect, so must these changes be to my practice.

The Health Care Bill Is Not Socialism.

I have taken some time  off to watch the Health Care bill unfold, reserving an immediate opinion until I have fully digested what has happened.  My immediate reaction was that "This is socialism".

But this bill is not socialism, it is Statism using a socialistic tactic. Look at what has been done; You no longer have ownership of you own body. You are taxed/fined by the mere fact of your existence. By definition you are a subject of the State. Your body is now owned by the State. If you refuse to pay your Tax/Fine you will go to Jail. If you refuse to go to jail the State will KILL you. (Now that's healthy) Your life has now become a privilege granted by the State.

My points will not be debated by supporters of this bill in a rational manner. The supporters of this bill and other progressive ideas like this will dismiss me as a nut, but the truth remains. You are no longer a sovereign entity. You are a subject. By no action of your own and only by reason of your existence, you are now coerced to action for the benefit of the State.

What was done is Unconstitutional or more simply stated, against the law and most importantly, immoral.
Our fundamental relationship with the government has changed and the change is for the worse.
