Comments regarding the new Oaths presented y Jeff Singer:
I am embarrassed by my alma mater the University of Minnesota. After apologizing for their brutal occupation of Dakota land, they are keen to protect us from “able-ism”. I was not aware that we have doctors who refer to their handicapped patients as “spaz.”
Singer’s own proposed Oath has a landmine clause, where the doctor promises not to interrupt the right of a patient to self-medicate in any way. This is the exact philosophy that has led to open-air drug markets and crime cesspools in San Francisco, Portland, et al.
Singer has apparently never heard of Michael Shellenbarger, who has exposed this crazy super-tolerance.
The Tavistock meeting must have been quite the beer bash. I get the feeling that the “Principles” were thrown together as an addendum to an expense report.
