Work Ethic

Growing up on a farm taught me the value of hard work, the satisfaction of earning my own living. What disturbs me most and what I see as the main issue in our country is the lack of a work ethic. Our society seems to think that people are owed (entitled) a living. Being created equal with equal rights does not mean that everyone has the same outcome no matter what one does. Personally, I am offended that I work hard and am forced to pay for other people to do nothing, because they have chosen to take advantage of our government programs, which have become far too bureaucratic and ridiculous. So much bad behavior has been rewarded for so long that bad behavior prevails and the incentives for good behavior have diminished. Common sense (also not appreciated and becoming rare) should tell our society that people have to do their part or else everything deteriorates.

Abuse of Physicians

For years I have been preaching that we physicians do not have basic human rights. Finally there is an article by Dr. Wible, “Not ‘Burnout,’ Not Moral Injury—Human Rights Violations,” which validates some of my beliefs. Our society through the legal system has rapidly increased the burdens on physicians; which, in other people, would be considered basic human rights violations. Our media has switched in my lifetime from reporting mostly positive views of physicians to mostly negative ones. As a result, the real healthcare crisis, in my opinion, centers around the diminution of physician oversight. Most physicians who speak to the public are extremely biased as they are either hired by the government, hospitals, or insurance companies. All of this abuse is possible I believe because our legal system has set the stage with laws that restrict us from our basic human rights.
