The Critical Need to Question Authority in the Professional Regulation of Medicine

“Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking, don’t you think?”
L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously.  
To evaluate the legitimacy of  an authority it is necessary to:
1. Assess whether they actually know what they are talking about.   
2. Assess whether the authorities are honest in their intentions.
When anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority.
There is a paucity of anti-authoritarianism in the medical community concerning groups that have gained tremendous sway in the regulation of the medical profession.    There is, in fact, an absence of anti-authoritarian questioning  of  what is essentially illegitimate  and  irrational authority.   Most doctors are unaware of the impact these organizations have had on both the regulation of the medical profession and social control of individual doctors.  Through “moral entrepreneurship” and “bent science” these groups have successfully swayed both policy-makers and the public to support an agenda not supported by reality testing or critical thinking.  This acceptance without investigation has led to a deterioration of professional ethics and evidence-based decision making in the regulation of the medical profession.
Screen Shot 2017-02-04 at 11.20.00 PMIn order for these organizations to maintain power it is necessary that their authoritative opinion remain unquestioned and unchallenged.  Consciously manufactured propaganda has persuaded regulatory and public opinion of their value and to maintain power it is necessary that this authority remain insulated from outside evaluation because the entire system is based on assumptions that can be aptly characterized as “illusions.
Screen Shot 2017-02-04 at 11.22.11 PMThe dogmatic statements and abusive generalizations do not conform to reality.  Everything is adapted to an existing stagnant cognitive system that falls far off the map of the scientific approach to information and evidence based medicine.  Perceiving only confirmations the physician health paradigm embodies and expresses preconceived ideas, values and mentalities based on certitude and absolute truth.

If one looks behind the curtain there is not much there.   Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 3.39.59 AMHistorical, political, economic and social analysis can all show how the construct that exists today came to be.   This can be factually ascertained by simple reasoning and examination of the documentary evidence.

Any one of these analyses would reveal that the “PHP-blueprint” is a false-construct built on circumnavigation and obfuscation.

An evidence-based scrutiny of the literature would reveal it to be invalid and of little probative value.  A public policy analysis would reveal the logical fallacies involved in trumpeting  their positions including exaggerated rhetoric and  fear monitoring strategies designed to inspire moral panics and exploit fears to further an underlying political agenda

Any critical analysis would reveal cherry picking. proof by anecdote, deceptive propaganda, double talk, contradictory, illogical and incomprehensible jabber,  unprovable and  un-disprovable statements and a panoply of logical fallacy.

These groups  misrepresent, censor and suppress. They  nit pick and split hairs.  Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 3.40.37 AMThe concept of denial is not just used to force people into treatment and justify abuse during treatment but  to suppress specific questions and deliberately avoid key facts.

So why are we not questioning this “authority?”     They have been left alone and basically thrown in the backyard left to proliferate like feral cats.

We need anti-authoritarians and we need them now.

I need allies before the door closes for good. And that door may be closing a lot sooner than you think!Screen Shot 2017-02-28 at 1.42.24 PM

  1. Question authority? That’s what we “Asperger’s” do automatically – it’s part of the ‘bullshit detector” that’s built into our “brain”. And what to we get for it? Diagnosed as “defective, disabled – subhuman.” There’s an entire quasi-medical industry whose function it is to make sure that “the social order” is enforced. I’ve dealt with the “religious dogma” of psychology most of my life because I’m considered to be abnormal – had my personality and positive attributes ‘pathologized’ – my intelligence demonized. I’ve been recklessly drugged with medications that made my life WORSE, but no one listens to a ‘human reject’ which is what you are once you’ve been “judged” by the incompetent “authorities” who have been sanctioned to condemn human behavior selectively and purposefully – just like old time religion.

    Medicine? HAH! It’s one of the prime purveyor’s of social engineering in the U.S. I write a blog about Asperger’s – my message is directed at anyone who has been sucked into the autism industry conveyor belt: This is not science. These people are not legitimate authorities: these are profiteers. $$$ It’s all about power, control, Capitalism. You poor “victimized” physicians! Somewhere during my lifetime the “desire to help human beings” has been subsumed by GREED. It stinks.

    • This blog is precisely what you are talking about. Just because the writer is a physician does not mean he is granted impunity from what you have stated above.

      So the good doc in question has undergone very much the same labelling subsequent pseudoscientific faith healing woo as treatment, lost a livelihood etc and because?

      Well because the 12 step industry says so and will use whatever punitive illegitimate nonsense to feather the rehab nest.

      There is nothing wrong with the author much like yourself it is only the corrupt systems that create the status quo.

      Stand together not alone gone wild.

      Best wishes.

      • I recognize this: but the author is obviously a rare exception, and not the “object” of my comment other than being the individual who has put forth the topic. I do not know him personally; I am not about to blame him for the “system” nor excuse him from any complicity. It is a system created by and for the “medical” people who benefit and suffer from their creation. my post was meant to expand the number and type of people who are targets of this vicious application of illegitimate authority.
